Greg Plitt – You Live as Long as you are Remembered

In the words of Greg Plitt, “You live as long as you are remembered.”

The thing about life is that you are going to die but your legacy lives on. You have one life so make the most of it, reach your goals until you reach the finish line and be victorious.

In life you go after things, you fail but you just need to keep trying.

Failure is part of the recipe for success.

Winners and losers both fail, the difference is that winners never quit, they get up and just do it again.

Making dreams a reality is simply taking one step at a time.

Stop running, the potential is inside of you, it is always inside of you.

You must believe in yourself to be the person now so that others remember you later.

Put the work in now so you never wonder what if.

Do not run by the clock but by your desire to go somewhere.

“You only live once but if you live it right, once is enough.”
