Quotes We Loved“If you are not sleeping well, if you are not eating well, if you have no movement or you're not feeding your body with movement if you are not doing any type of, you know, stress tolerance or mental training, if your cognitive performance is suffering, you're just never going to get anywhere, basically.” - Lee Eldridge“...try and think about your vision, and where do I want to be? And that's a bit of a key thing. So once you have this idea of your boundaries, and if it's not a definite yes, then it's a no. If it's not yes, it's no, and it's quite a simple thing to do.” - Lee Eldridge“...visions, values, and purpose are the big areas that push people to go forward and do what they're going to do. And once you start to do that, all the decisions that you need to make, if they're covered in those three and it's a good decision, you move forward.” - Lee Eldridge
