Written by Danni Krumins

Whether it’s a quote, or something a coach or a friend tells you, sometimes the right words at the right time are what you need to motivate you to keep going, or to work a little bit harder.

Here are five of my favorite motivational quotes that have resonated with me during certain situations in the past:

“Your body can stand almost anything its your mind you have to convince.” – Author Unknown

Everything happens in your mind first. Mental blocks are one of the most frustrating things I have dealt with – standing there before a tumbling pass wanting to go, but something in the back of your mind is telling you not to. Whether its getting up out of bed in the morning, getting through a tough workout, or throwing a brand new tumbling skill for the first time, you will always have to push your mind before your body. Trust yourself and trust your training everything else will follow.

Your body can stand almost anything.Its your mind you have to convince.

“Each of us has a fire in our hearts for something, it’s our goal in life to find it and keep it lit.” – Mary Lou Retton

Find what makes you happy, what you are passionate about, and don’t let it go. I can never see my life without gymnastics or tumbling in some form. I am so thankful for where the sport I started 8 years ago has taken me, and for all the experiences and people I have met. This is a reminder to take every opportunity you can to learn and to do what you are passionate about, and to share that passion with others.

Each of us has a fire in our hearts for something

“Work like there is someone working 24 hours a day to take it all away from you.” – Mark Cuban

It’s hard sometimes to get up day after day and put 110% into everything you do. I always try to do my very best at every opportunity I am given. If I don’t, there is someone else that will, someone else that will step up and take my spot. Don’t take anything for granted. What you want is earned not given.

Work like there is someone working 24 hours a day to take it all away from you.

“Everything you’re going through and everything you’ve gone through will be worth the struggles and frustrations.” – Rhonda Rousey

When you experience a setback or a difficult challenge in your life it is tough to keep going. I have sometimes questioned why I am doing something, or why should I keep going, and that maybe I should just stop. But every challenge, struggle, and frustration is making you a stronger person for the future. When you have those moments of accomplishment, of pure joy and happiness, you will be proud of yourself and that feeling will be worth it!

Everything you're going through, and everything...

“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford

Your mind is a powerful thing, and attitude is everything. If I go into a workout, go for a lift, or a new tumbling pass thinking that I can’t do it for even just a second, then I probably won’t. To be successful you have to commit 100% mentally and physically. There is no room for doubt.

Whether you think you can or you can't, your right
