“It’s those little things in between that you don’t notice that you take for granted.”
“At the end of the day, people want to get jacked. They want a six-pack. They want to get stronger. They want to look better, and they want to know how to eat the right food or make more money. So, let’s start with there; get jacked, but once I got you reeled in, I’m going to try to make you a better person.”
“People get complacent…and then you get trapped in that”
“The long game– long term– it’s ultimately going to make the world of a difference”
“There’s this problem. There’s literature and then there’s the general public and they’re not seeing the literature. They’re not seeing the science”
“If you are stuck somewhere you are not as effective. There comes a point where you have to choose to leave and be on your own so you’re free to really do the thing that you want to do.”
“Who knows what’s going to happen in 2 months. Who knows what’s going to happen in 4 months. That’s kind of a beautiful thing.”
“Do it now. Don’t wait for it.”
“I’m never going to tell my son not to eat an apple”
