He is so particular and unique yet he can converse and identify with any person he comes across which also makes him a great politician.He did it all and  has some great insight and I will post some of his famous quotes on here.

“The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That’s what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they’ll go through the pain no matter what happens”

“Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body”

“Learned helplessness is the giving-up reaction, the quitting response that follows from the belief that whatever you do doesn’t matter”
