Blogger Challenge: Favorite Motivational Quote

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

Theodore Roosevelt

You will never have the “perfect” conditions to do a thing.  If you wait for perfection you’ll never start.  That’s why I love this quote so much.

Do you know why I love bodybuilding so much?  Because you can start with an overweight frumpy body (like mine) and make it look chiseled.  Or you can start off looking skinny like Olive Oil like my friend was and add muscle to become strong.  You know, strong is the new skinny.  At least that’s what all the T-shirts say.  (Note to self: buy a Strong is the New Skinny t-shirt.) 

No one starts bodybuilding looking like a super model or the Incredible Hulk (if you’re a guy.)  You have to work at it every single day.  You do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

What about you?  What’s your favorite quote?
