In the moments that you fall hardest - when you lose a job, or find out a boyfriend is cheating on you, or realize that you made a bad financial decision - you can channel your shame, your anger, your desire, your loss.

Ronda Rousey Quotes 125500

I get asked that a lot and I always go back to my mom's, 'No one has the right to beat you.' I take that to every venue that I'm in. She would say, 'Someone has to be the best in the world, why not you?' I always try to keep that in mind. — Ronda Rousey

I wasn't always the most fashionable, and I would come to school with cauliflower ear and ringworm. I got made fun of a lot.

You have to be able to win every match twice on your worst day. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 369492

Ronda Rousey Quotes 467567

There have been times in my adolescence where I gave up. I was like, 'I'm just never going to be pretty. I'm never going to be like one of those people on the front of magazines.' It always seemed really strange to me that the projection of how people are in advertisements looked nothing like the people who were actually buying them. You know what I mean? I never understood that mismatch, and now I really start to see that the people you see in the media are a lot more like people actually are. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 475739

I don't lift weights at all. Every muscle on my body is for an actual task; there is no muscle that I train for show. If I want to be able to do a certain move or action, I train really hard until I can. And with all of that training comes muscle definition, so it's really an afterthought. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 489473

I'm going to be super successful one day, and I'm going to write a book. It's going to be a kickass autobiography. And this is how it always happens in the book.

Just get through a few more pages, and it's going to have an amazing ending. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 619977

I don't feel the need to be the hot chick every second of the day. I like to be able to surprise people when I turn it on. I want it to be like the movie 'She's All That' when they unveil her. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 663591

What I'm really looking to do is retire undefeated; I'm not sure when the right time to retire will be, but I know that I'm not done yet. Something still feels unfinished, and that's why I'm going to keep going. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 905829

People love the idea of winning an Olympic medal or a world title. But what few people realize is that pretty much every second leading up to the actual win is uncomfortable, painful, and impossibly daunting - physically and mentally. Most people focus on the wrong thing: They focus on the result, not the process. The process is the sacrifice; it is 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. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 932274

There was a long time I had no job security, no options and no education. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 969248

The kind of hope I'm talking about is a deep belief that the world can be changed, that the impossible is possible. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 970724

I spent the whole first year of my career just on my legs. If you have good legs under you, then you can punch. Anybody can stand and throw their hands and look like an idiot. If you actually want to learn how to punch, you have to work on being balanced on your legs and feeling your legs under you. Feel the ground. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 976401

A belt does nothing but hold your gi together. A belt has assigned significance, a belt is someone else saying you're good, you don't need other people saying that you're good in order to be good. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 996672

Fear of failure is always a driver but the thirst for more is a good one too ... So I think you need a little bit of both. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1104012

Everything in the world is information. The information you choose to acknowledge and the information you choose to ignore is up to you. You can let outside factors beyond your control throw off your focus. You can let aching muscles hold you back. You can let silence make you feel uncomfortable. By choosing to focus only on the information that is necessary, you can tune out every distraction, and achieve far more. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1257640

I wasn't allowed to throw big hooks and overhand rights until I'd been striking for three years. It's so you don't rely on those things from the very beginning. If your footwork sucks, and you can only stand in one place and throw your hands all crazy while the other person is running around, you're never going to be able to hit them. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1275168

Active patience is taking the time to set something up correctly. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1409778

See, for some reason, I feel like it's a victory if I wake up one minute before the alarm. It's like I'm in a contest with myself, with my foot kicking around until it wakes up the rest of my body. It's the stupidest thing. But it makes me feel like I've already won something. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1431627

I was painfully shy for a long time. I mean, that's something I really had to work my way out of. And I really think it was because, after the 2008 Olympics, I spent a whole year bartending. It was the one thing that really forced me to be just not so scared to start conversations with strangers. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1438184

SOMEONE HAS TO BE THE BEST IN THE WORLD. WHY NOT YOU? — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1481668

Boxing great Mike Tyson said "a happy fighter is a dangerous fighter." I think he's right. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1668552

I did what sports were supposed to be like, and I was living in my car. So you know what, fine. I'm gonna talk a bunch of sh*t. I'm gonna pose in a couple of pictures. And I'm gonna break a couple of girl's arms, and I'm not gonna feel the least bit sorry about it because you know what? At least I can feed my dog. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1730758

As an athlete you're taught to be selfish. When I'm training, it's usually all about me. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1736196

I fight with pizazz. It's a different sound from everyone else. It's the sound of pizazz. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1782456

Everyone wants to win. But to truly succeed - whether it is at a sport or at your job or in life - you have to be willing to do the hard work, overcome the challenges, and make the sacrifices it takes to be the best at what you do. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1808328

It took a lot of time to develop a healthier relationship with food and with my weight. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1847086

When it comes to fighting, physical strength really has very little to do with it. One of the tenets that judo is founded upon is "Maximum efficiency, minimum effort." That has really defined my career. It is the foundation of all the techniques and everything I do. It's one reason why I don't get tired. It's one reason why I am able to fight girls who are a head taller than me, or chicks who are on steroids. People who cheat or dope lack the one thing every true champion must have: belief. No drug or amount of money or favoritism can ever give you belief in yourself. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1873542

I don't shy away from any questions. I'm not scared of any question. I'll give you an answer. A lot of people are scared of having actual opinions out there. People are so scared of criticism ... I'm not scared of people disliking me. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1915466

I think it's hilarious if people say that my body looks masculine. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1918319

I have a candle permanently on my Jacuzzi because I love me some candles. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1954504

It is one thing to fight other people, but fighting yourself is different. If you're fighting yourself, who wins? Who loses? — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 1989382

The best way to take a punch is to look at it. Honestly. Someone could hit you with the hardest punch that they have, but as long as you see it, it's not going to knock you out. It's the punches that you don't see that knock you out. So you could get tapped with a small punch, but if you don't see it, you're out. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2002177

Kids don't like what they don't understand, and judo was always my social outlet. I always felt really socially awkward, and I couldn't speak very well when I was younger. When I was doing judo, it was something that I could understand and someplace where I felt that I belonged and fit in. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2018836

I'm the champion for a reason. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2031016

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2065806

Making a change in your life is as easy as making a decision and acting on it. That's it. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2118274

The whole 'bad girl' thing allows me to mess up sometimes. And I have freedom to say more of what I want to. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2131946

I go mainly by the Dolce diet. It is a little hard to describe: it's not really a diet but more of a lifestyle. I eat throughout the day; I have three meals and two snacks, and it changes according to what I need at the time. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2152969

I want her to look at me. I want her to stare me in the eye. I want her to see that I have no fear. I want her to know she stands no chance. I want her to be scared. I want her to know she is going to lose. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2161151

When I looked at the state of women's MMA, what I saw was that it was missing rivalries or anything theatrical about it. Everybody was trying to be Miss America, unwilling to go under any kind of criticism, and taking the safe answers. I thought I needed to do whatever I could to get attention. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2174745

Where is women's sports prominently displayed with the men? Tennis is the only thing I can think of. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2185951

I think that Floyd Mayweather is the best boxer that's ever lived; like actual technical boxer. — Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Quotes 2247539

Once you give them the power to tell you you're great, you've also given them the power to tell you you're unworthy. Once you start caring about people's opinions of you, you give up control. — Ronda Rousey
