“To Hell with circumstances; I create opportunities. ” – Bruce Lee
I love this quote, and anything by Bruce Lee for that matter. Nothing in this life comes easy.
Not the body you want. The health you deserve. The success you crave. We can’t wait for it, we have to grab opportunity by the horns and take advantage. If the opportunity isn’t obvious, keep grinding and make things happen. Your success is up to you. Don’t focus on the haters on the naysayers; rather, focus on getting better every day. Better every day will create your opportunities.
