 In this episode you will hear:
 
  • From our darkest moments can rise our brightest hours.
  • I’ve been through some fires, but I’ve truly come to believe that every step is a finish line.
  • When you make it to the next moment, you have finish line, after finish line, after finish line. Then you can stay in the game.
  • We have too many options in life. Make success and making it to the end your only goal.
  • You can be exhausted physically and mentally, but you’re never out.
  • There are people that stepped up like brothers and uplifted me.
  • When you lose someone, there’s only one question to ask yourself – did you love them?
  • It took 4 guys 15-20 minutes to take my brother out, as he fought with every breath he had.
  • They’re gonna have to cut my heart out before I quit.
  • Never quit, no matter what you’re up against.
  • I feel I have a duty to inspire others as best I can.
  • No matter how dark it gets, you’re never out of the fight.
  • Every step is a finish line.
  • You don’t have to make it to the end of the day – just make it to your next moment with everything you’ve got.
