Get an inspiring and motivating boost from one of the hardest working people in the world. If you are not progressing or for whatever reason you are on the spot, here are some of the best quotes from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to you:
1. Hard work
"There is no substitute for hard work, always stay modest and hungry at the same time."
How important the hard work is, you will be shown several times clearly. Act free after the legendary saying of Sepp Herberger, the former coach of the German national football team: "After training is before training." With all your efforts you should always remain modest and listen to your body.
"Be determined, go to bed with satisfaction, and eat a biscuit somewhere in between." To be able to go the long way, you have to be at peace with yourself at the end of the day. You can only do that if you approach your training sessions with determination. Your mind will only blow your excuses. That is understandable. A harsh program brings with it many hardships that he wants to protect you from. He just means well and wants to keep you in your comfort zone. You can be grateful to him and pamper him with little pleasures like a biscuit.
3. Focus and effort
"All successes in life are based on that: focus and effort, and we control both." In terms of training, the combination of strong focus and maximum effort is the foundation on which your success ultimately builds. Everything you can read in the quotes from "The Rock" presented here is based on these two points. Get into your tunnel. Do not look left or right, because there are now black walls for you during the units. You are now a racehorse who just looks his way and works as hard as he can to reach the finish.
4. Secret of success
"I'm often asked what my secret is to success, the secret is that there is no secret, show humility, be hungry and always be the hardest worker in the room." There is no pill that you can swallow, and no button that you just need to squeeze. Training is all about your attitude. Which factors are crucial, you can read here in Dwayne's quotes.
5. The future
"In 1995 I had $ 7 in my pocket and I knew two things: I'm in hell and one day I will not be anymore." "Every thing has its time." This biblical quote says it all. There are times when we build bridges and where we tear them down again. The good can not exist without the bad. If you are stuck in a deep hole or valley, this can motivate you again. Even for you, the rule is that a bad time will follow again a pleasant. It is therefore right outside your door. Get started and follow Dwayne's advice.
6. Drive and talent
"With drive and a little talent, you can move mountains." The drive is even more important. The best example is the tennis legend Ivan Lendl from the 1980s. He had significantly less talent than his rivals (eg Boris Becker or Stefan Edberg). Nevertheless, he was for years the number one in the world rankings. How did he do that? Hardly anyone trained as hard and focused as he did. Only through much diligence, iron discipline and enough drive he could prevail. That was great sport from the Czech, so you can call Lendl confidently "The Rock of Tennis".
"Be disciplined day in, day out, do the little things you need for your goals, and increase your success through consistency." Only if you train regularly and always stay on the ball, you will be able to achieve your goals. Remember, your mind bombards you with excuses to keep you in your familiar surroundings. It is expected that at the earliest opportunity, he will animate you for a few days break, which can quickly become weeks or months. Visualize your goals and show off how beautiful your life will be when you've made it.
8. Earn respect
"Blood, sweat, and respect, you give the first two, the latter you will receive."
9. The most important thing of all
Analogously, Dwayne says: "The key to getting the most out of your exercises is to be patient with other people's reactions, just smile, nod imperceptibly, and do not look like a raving psychopath, or you'll be thrown out of the studio, no matter what You will always win if you stay calm and face the people in a friendly way, such composure subliminally proving to others that you are superior to them. " "The strenght is to be found in serenity." This old German proverb you know guaranteed. It is even twice as true for you. For one thing, you can only train well if you are calm and focused inside. On the other hand, the serenity in such a conflict situation will give you additional motivation and strength (and possibly adrenaline).
10. Hard work pays off
I thought every day would be a national pancake day. " The harder you work, the better and faster you reach your goal. Dwayne repeatedly speaks of humility. By that he means, in the first place, that you should listen to the signs of your body. Only you can decide in the end how much you can expect. General rules (48 hours break, etc.) are guidelines that you should follow. Whether and how far you can cross it depends on your body. What can he do, where should you step down? As for the 48-hour, you can z. B. very well every day exercise. All you have to do is make sure that each muscle gets the two days of regeneration As part of your diet, you'll have plenty of opportunities to reward yourself. And that's exactly what you should do. There are so many delicious protein recipes. Let it be well with you. You deserve it. But this is not a cheat day ("Cheat Day" etc.) meant. That's another story. Of course, you have to adhere to the framework of your calorie requirements. One more: If you can not get enough of The Rock, you should try out your Hercules training program. He has developed it to come to the body he has now.
