It’s all to do with the training: you can do a lot if you’re properly trained.
Queen Elizabeth II
I need to celebrate life because I’m in a good spot, I work hard, and I am happy with who I am and happy with what I do for a living, and sometimes I just focus and overwhelm myself so much with the fights and getting better, that I just need to slow it down and enjoy life and enjoy training.
Confidence comes from discipline and training.
On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.

When you view your world with an attitude of gratitude, you are training yourself to focus on the good in life.
Paul J. Meyer
As long as you remain true to yourself and continue training with sincerity, nobody can stop you from achieving excellence.
Humans aren’t as good as we should be in our capacity to empathize with feelings and thoughts of others, be they humans or other animals on Earth. So maybe part of our formal education should be training in empathy. Imagine how different the world would be if, in fact, that were ‘reading, writing, arithmetic, empathy.’
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Bodybuilding is much like any other sport. To be successful, you must dedicate yourself 100% to your training, diet and mental approach.
There is a difference between a fighter and a martial artist. A fighter is training for a purpose: He has a fight. I’m a martial artist. I don’t train for a fight. I train for myself. I’m training all the time. My goal is perfection. But I will never reach perfection.
A fighter, a real strong fighter, should always look dignified and calm, and I believe that any expression of aggression is an expression of weakness. A strong person will not be nervous and will not express aggression towards his opponent. He will be confident in his abilities and his training; then he will face the fight calm and balanced.
Religion is the masterpiece of the art of animal training, for it trains people as to how they shall think.
Recently, I was asked if I was going to fire an employee who made a mistake that cost the company $600,000. No, I replied, I just spent $600,000 training him. Why would I want somebody to hire his experience?
Thomas J. Watson
For me, training is my meditation, my yoga, hiking, biking all rolled into one. Wake up early in the morning, generally around 4 o’clock, and I’ll do my cardio on an empty stomach. Stretch, have a big breakfast, and then I’ll go train.
Running taught me valuable lessons. In cross-country competition, training counted more than intrinsic ability, and I could compensate for a lack of natural aptitude with diligence and discipline. I applied this in everything I did.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
A cardio workout increases blood flow and acts as a filter system. It brings nutrients like oxygen, protein, and iron to the muscles that you’ve been training and helps them recover faster.
I’m lucky to be part of a team who help to make me look good, and they deserve as much of the credit for my success as I do for the hard work we have all put in on the training ground.
Ignorance of all things is an evil neither terrible nor excessive, nor yet the greatest of all; but great cleverness and much learning, if they be accompanied by a bad training, are a much greater misfortune.
Job training empowers people to realize their dreams and improve their lives.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell
I think sometimes the best training is to rest.
You know, I looked at my face in the mirror this morning, and I like being old. My face has more content and when I train in the gym now, I am not training to be strong or handsome – just better than I was yesterday. These days the race is just against myself.
Jean-Claude Van Damme
Few men are born brave. Many become so through training and force of discipline.
Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus

Training is a part of being the best version of yourself and you need to be the best version of yourself to be successful.
Together we are stronger, our voices louder, and the synergy of our actions more powerful. Together we can prevail on the Navy to put commonsense safeguards in place, like requiring its ships to avoid the most sensitive marine mammal habitats and to stop their training exercises during peak migrations.
I don’t really think about the degree of difficulty or the possibility of making a mistake. I just try to relax and let my preparation and training take over.
Flexibility is crucial to my fitness. Incorporating a good warm-up and cool-down into every session decreases my chances of injury. I use both dynamic and static stretching in my training. I’ve starting doing a few yoga sessions which incorporates muscle strength and flexibility.
Trust should be the basis for all our moral training.
Nutrition is important, training is important – but so are rest and recovery, massages, acupuncture. Your body is your temple, and you’ve got to take care of it.
Everyone with a cell phone thinks they’re a photographer. Everyone with a laptop thinks they’re a journalist. But they have no training, and they have no idea of what we keep to in terms of standards, as in what’s far out and what’s reality. And they have no dedication to truth.
Hire for passion and intensity; there is training for everything else.
There will be many obstacles in the pursuit of your dreams. I had long hours of training, balancing studies and badminton.
P. V. Sindhu

At Barca, players were banned from driving their sports cars to training.
Almost all our suffering is the product of our thoughts. We spend nearly every moment of our lives lost in thought, and hostage to the character of those thoughts. You can break this spell, but it takes training just like it takes training to defend yourself against a physical assault.
I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It’s not. Mine had me trained in two days.

William H. McRaven
My confidence comes from the daily grind – training my butt off day in and day out.
Empowerment isn’t a buzzword among leadership gurus. It’s a proven technique where leaders give their teams the appropriate training, tools, resources, and guidance to succeed.
I’m more about mind over muscle. My mindset needs to be the fittest, because it drags my body through whatever needs to be done. A lot of people neglect training their mind and their self-belief, but I believe that’s crucial.
That human behavior is more influenced by things outside of us than inside. The ‘situation’ is the external environment. The inner environment is genes, moral history, religious training.
There’s always someone out there training for your spot. For my scholarship at the University of Florida, for my job with the Denver Broncos, for my position with the New York Jets. And that’s the reason to get up earlier or stay up later.
Schools like Doon or Lawrence in Sanawar didn’t decide to create leaders when they started. Look at their alumni list today, and you have a former prime minister, Olympic gold medallist, army generals, cabinet ministers, and leaders in different spheres. Some kind of training started at the school level itself that helped create leaders.
Madam Walker was a master marketer. But her brilliance was in taking it to another level by training women, by traveling, by making very motivational speeches and by providing independent income for women who otherwise would have to be maids and sharecroppers.
Mickey Mantle was a very good golfer, but we weren’t allowed to play golf during the season; only at spring training.
A system of education is not one thing, nor does it have a single definite object, nor is it a mere matter of schools. Education is that whole system of human training within and without the school house walls, which molds and develops men.
W. E. B. Du Bois
Creative minds have always been known to survive any kind of bad training.
When my marriage broke up… I had just put on 45 pounds for my ‘Shall We Dance?’ character. I had to eat 10,000 calories a day just to put on weight while training with Tony Dovolani. I basically stayed in bed for a six-month rotation of depression naps. Dance helped me lose the weight.
Lisa Ann Walter
I was training to be an electrician. I suppose I got wired the wrong way round somewhere along the line.
Everyone has the ability to increase resilience to stress. It requires hard work and dedication, but over time, you can equip yourself to handle whatever life throws your way without adverse effects to your health. Training your brain to manage stress won’t just affect the quality of your life, but perhaps even the length of it.
I have no inhibitions about smoking or drinking, but I think too much of my voice to place it in jeopardy. I have spent many good years in training and cultivating it, and I would be foolish to do anything which might impair or ruin it.
I don’t generally like running. I believe in training by rising gently up and down from the bench.
I think recovery is around the clock. Are you sleeping enough? Are you hydrating enough? Are you stretching? Are you eating well? Pretty much everything that I do is a reflection of how I’m going to feel on the field. I take great pride in getting in an ice bath after training and just taking care of myself.
For me, sometimes it’s more important to perform well in training and know that I am improving rather than scoring in a game. It’s doing the hard work, day in, day out.
When I win a gold medal in the Olympics… I would say every pain, tears and screams in training will be worth it.

Basically it starts with four months of training, just basic stretching, kicking and punching. Then you come to the choreography and getting ready to put the dance together.
If one can stick to the training throughout the many long years, then will power is no longer a problem. It’s raining? That doesn’t matter. I am tired? That’s besides the point. It’s simply that I just have to.
I was raised as a Catholic and as an Ismaili. My father felt that I should have some training in Islam, but my mother was a Catholic, so really, I was raised with both.
Yasmin Aga Khan

Resting for me is fitness training.
I train and I go home, and when I’m home, I think about training. That’s my life every day, and that’s it.

I went to Northampton College of Further Education. I left there – when I was 16, I left Kingsthorpe Upper – and I went and did a diploma in performing arts, so it was my start in the training process to becoming an actor.
A lifetime of training for just ten seconds.
I’d been in jail, and I’d been beat. I had been to a voter registration workshop, you know, to – they were just training and teaching us how to register, to pass the literacy test.
Fannie Lou Hamer
Communities do need police, but law enforcement needs to be much more transparent and held accountable for their actions. We also need increased resources for mental health services, affordable housing, education, jobs training, and much more to truly address social and economic issues in our communities.

When man possesses a good, sound body that does not overpower him nor disturb the equilibrium in him, he possesses a divine gift. In short, a good constitution facilitates the rule of the soul over the body, but it is not impossible to conquer a bad constitution by training.
For the most part, people think in ordinary life without bringing order into their thoughts. The guiding principles and epochs of human development and planetary evolution, the great viewpoints which have been opened by the initiates, bring thought into ordered forms. All of this is a part of Rosicrucian training. It is called the Study.
You should always focus on training and consider it a step forward. And each step is taking you higher and higher until you reach the top, which is where you should stay.

Training, and every morning I have to take my dogs out into the forest. That’s all I’m doing. I’m staying out of everything else. All other things that can take out my concentration and my energy from the training.
Mirko Cro Cop

It was my fortune, or misfortune, to be called to the office of Chief Executive without any previous political training.
Ulysses S. Grant
Throughout my years, I’ve had the pleasure of assembling and training what I believe to be the best group of people in the world. People with the presence of mind to deal with any flare-up, including my own. People who share the belief that nothing is impossible.
The sum and substance of female education in America, as in England, is training women to consider marriage as the sole object in life, and to pretend that they do not think so.
Not every difficult and dangerous thing is suitable for training, but only that which is conducive to success in achieving the object of our effort.
All the circuit training, it’s cardio circuit training, so everything you’re doing, you’re still running up your heart rate. You’re burning, I think, triple the amount of calories than if you were just weight lifting.
Providence was well aware what lay ahead for me, and my Capuchin training was to prepare me for it.
Every training session, I work hard to improve my weaknesses and build on my strengths.

We don’t always have an accurate view of our own potential. I think most people who are frightened of public speaking and can’t imagine they might feel different as a result of training.

I work out every day – and my daily routine is a mix of functional and strength training.
It’s that preparation that goes into each week. We have a term: ‘Trust your training, trust your teammate, and trust yourself.’

If you put a person in a training gym made out of entire gold, it doesn’t guarantee that this person will become a champion. But if you put a person in the basement, then there is a high chance that he will get out of this basement as a champion.
If the government can afford luxury travel for its cabinet officials, then surely we can find the resources to invest in quality education, jobs skills training, and properly fund the State Department and foreign aid programs.
Dance is a universal language, and whether you know how to dance or grew up training in dance, you have a respect for people who love to dance, and it’s also visually very entertaining to watch a great dancer.
I run, but boxing conditioning is different, so you have to get used to running in the ring. Boxing movements are very different. Swimming is one of the best because every single muscle is working. I swim a lot. I train very hard at things that mimic boxing. I have to do mostly sport-specific training, such as lots of sparring.
I’ve really enjoyed my time at Palace. The lads were brilliant; the gaffer and training were great.
I think about making a comeback every single day. I went running, I went training, did that for a few days. But my body couldn’t handle it.
Oscar De La Hoya
In a world where people are hungry for quick fixes and sound bites, for instant gratification, there’s no patience for the long, slow rebuilding process: implementing after-school programs, hiring more community workers to act as mentors, adding more job training programs in marginalized areas.
For some reason I have a visual intuition that allows me to design things in an interesting way, and I don’t know where that came from. Because I don’t have this formal training, I seem to drift in a different direction.

A man who dreads trials and difficulties cannot become a revolutionary. If he is to become a revolutionary with an indomitable fighting spirit, he must be tempered in the arduous struggle from his youth. As the saying goes, early training means more than late earning.
Kim Jong Il
I had an injury in my leg, and everybody was talking about that. I decided to cut my hair and leave the small thing there. I come to training, and everybody saw me with bad hair. Everybody was talking about the hair and forgot about the injury. I could stay more calm and relaxed and focused on my training.
If we are going to win the next war, in my opinion, 50 percent of the time of training should be allotted to night training.
A large amount of constant activity will get things going. For example, training in the morning will have everything, all the juices flowing by the time you actually get to work. So, when you’re at work, you’ve been already up for an hour or so or two hours, and you’re raring to go where everyone else is still wiping sleep out of their eyes.
What makes an officer’s job all the more difficult, dangerous, and demanding is that it rests on upholding that sacred trust with citizens that he or she serves. Nevertheless, I ask every officer in Chicago: reflect on your work, your training, your experience and – to be honest – about the fears and frustrations you bring to that job.
I’ve always had bad posture, and Pilates makes me feel taller and reminds me to keep my shoulders back. And hiking isn’t just about doing cardio, it’s also when I can get my ‘me time’ to be alone with my thoughts. After Pilates I should do some cardio, and after hiking, I need to do some resistance training.
Adversity has the same effect on a man that severe training has on the pugilist: it reduces him to his fighting weight.
