No Guts, No Glory

25 Quotes to Help You Crush Life

There is an old saying that goes “No Guts, No Glory”.  Is it cliche to utter this phrase these days?  I don’t know, maybe it is on the cusp of being outdated and overused.

No Guts No Glory

What I do know, is that it is a truth.  It is as real as gravity.  It is an incontrovertible law of the universe, and anybody wanting to crush life and achieve greatly needs to live by it.

If you find yourself on some high mountain top, not playing by the rules of gravity, not respecting it, it will lead to a loss of life.

Like gravity, if a person is trying to bring a dream or goal into reality, but doesn’t respect the law of risk, it will lead to a loss of more than life.  It will lead to a loss of time, resources, effort, and spirit.

Glory will always be off in the distance, if we don’t take the risks necessary to bring us closer to it.  If you don’t challenge your boundaries, if you don’t take the risks needed to move forward, you will stagnate.  Like a tree, if we are not growing, we are dying.

With that being said, it’s essential we accept the essence of this saying as a truth. Internalize it. Because it’s the only obstacle standing between you and that remarkably bright future that awaits you.

Your Capacity For Greatness

We all have the capacity for greatness.  We all have the capacity for improving our lives and reaching extraordinary levels of success.   I truly and deeply believe this.  If I didn’t believe it, I wouldn’t be writing these words today.  I do believe.  I believe so strongly in possibilities, possibilities for you, for me, and for everyone else.

I’ve been studying successful people for a while now, and one of the traits common to them all, was fearlessness.  Having heightened levels of fearlessness lead them to having increased possibilities and opportunities in life.  Their capacity for greatness shrunk or expanded in proportion to their levels of fearlessness.

Rite of Passage

Every successful person has taken their lumps from life.  These lumps, bruises, war wounds, whatever you want to call them; come from taking action; Fearless  action!

Taking risks is a rite of passage for achieving what we want in life.  It is the only path, the only way, to achieve personal greatness.

I am not sure what you have going on in your life at this moment.   I know we are all in different places on our personal journeys.  But, what I do know is this; We all have decisions to make; Decisions that involve risk: Decisions that are either going to help us to move forward or move backwards.

    Awesome list of quotes! My favorite is actually the last one by Anais Nin ” Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” I’ve noticed the same trend in my dealings as well. Cheers!
