Use these Ronda Rousey quotes to keep pushing through fear and love the process of becoming successful.
“Most people focus on the wrong thing: They focus on the result, not the process. The process is the sacrifice; it’s all the hard parts – the sweat, the pain, the tears, the losses. You make the sacrifices anyway. You learn to enjoy them, or at least embrace them. In the end, it is the sacrifices that must fulfill you.” – Ronda Rousey
Sometimes it’s hard to focus on the process when you crave the result so badly. But as motivational teacher Eric Thomas said, “Trust the process, don’t rush the process.”
Enjoy your failures, setbacks, and learning moments on the way to achieving your biggest goals. You can do anything once you realize that it’s just a process. Fail faster so you can learn faster and start achieving your biggest goals.
“There have always been people who have written me off. They’re not going away. I use that to motivate me. I’m driven to show them just how wrong they are.” – Ronda Rousey
Haters should fuel your fire, drive, and ambition. Don’t let the naysayers tell you what’s possible. They are only expressing their own failures, insecurities, and lack of belief outward.
When you feel like quitting, remember that if you do you will be exactly that person they said you would be. Don’t quit, find a new way to reach your biggest goals and prove them wrong.
“I want to be a perfect fighter, and that’s one of those unattainable goals because you will never be perfect. But I can always be closer to perfect.” – Ronda Rousey Quotes
Perfect doesn’t exist in sports, business or life. But striving to be perfect means you are constantly trying to improve and get better. This is a huge key to continuing to be happy and make progress in life.
Tony Robbins talks about this in depth with the phrase “CANI” — Constant and Never Ending Improvement. While perfect is unattainable in almost everything in life, you can always be improving as a parent, friend, partner, and person.
“No drug or amount of money or favoritism can ever give you belief in yourself.” – Ronda Rousey
Self-belief is something you have to build up and acquire on your own. Trusting yourself and your intuition to make your dreams happen will create more belief than anything else in the world.
“To be the best, you have to constantly be challenging yourself, raising the bar, pushing the limits of what you can do. Don’t stand still, leap forward.” – Ronda Rousey Quotes
Always keep pushing, keep growing, and keep learning. The moments you feel the best are when you are learning and becoming the ultimate version of yourself. The moments you feel the worst is when you’re stuck and not making progress.
Remember, progress equals happines in all areas of life!
“There is nothing in my life that I would go back and change, even the darkest moments. All the successes and greatest joys in my life are a result of the absolute worst things. Every missed opportunity is a blessing in disguise.” – Ronda Rousey
Don’t run from your past, embrace it. Even the darkest moments have unbelievable learning moments if you are self-aware enough to find them. While it might not be immediately after a failure or setback, you can always find good in any situation.
Use these Ronda Rousey quotes to work hard, persevere, and become the version of yourself you were meant to become.
