Finding Ultra – Rich Roll

My favorite quotes from a remarkable biography Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World's Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself by Rich Roll, a man who finished EPIC5 in under a week: each day a full ironman-distance triathlon (2.4 mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26 mile run) on 5 different islands of Hawaii. Respect!

You can set a positive example. But you simply can not make someone change.


Pursue what's in your heart and the Universe will conspire to support you.

The prize never goes to the fastest guy,” Chris replied. “It goes to the guy who slows down the least.” True in endurance sports. And possibly even truer in life.

David Goggins quote I’d read years back—the idea that when you believe you’ve reached your absolute limit, you’ve only tapped into about 40 percent of what you’re truly capable of. The barrier isn’t the body. It’s the mind.

With obstacles comes the opportunity for growth. And if you're not growing, you're not living. Do what you love; love those you care about; give service to others; and know that you’re on the right path. There’s a new path waiting for you, too. All you have to do is look for it—then take that first step. If you show up and stay present, that step will eventually become a gigantic leap forward. And then you’ll show us who you really are.

When purpose aligns with faith, there can be no failure and all needs will be met—because the universe is infinitely abundant.
