If you love UFC commentary, then you surely are a Joe Rogan fan. He is someone who is known for his skills behind the mic and also his comic timings. His podcast Joe Rogan Experience is one of the popular ones on YouTube, with more than 1080 episodes.
Joe started out his career as a stand-up comedian in 1988, and since then, he has successfully tackled every forbidden subject like politics, drugs, terrorism and even religion. He is extremely straightforward, which makes his talks even more interesting and candid.
When he was five, his parents got divorced, and so he grew up without a father. He remembers all those violence but never had any complaints. So, in order to avoid the past, he started practising martial arts. And now he is a trained martial artist. So it's obviously a bad idea to challenge him.
Let us look at some of his inspiring quotes that may help you to change yourself.
Someone else's success does not equal a failure for you.
Failure and success are both sides of the same coin. It is both part and parcel of our life. Even if you do not succeed, do not worry because there will truly be light after darkness.
If you fail today, someone will succeed. In the same way, if you are successful in your life, someone may fail. So stop thinking and start doing.
Keep trying as one day success will knock on your door.
One of the most fascinating lessons I've absorbed about life is that the struggle is good.
Life is a journey that you need to experience. It is an amalgamation of mixed emotions. Nothing is easy in life as you do not value things that are easy.
Rogan explains that throughout his life, he has explored a variety of things. Even though he had a tough childhood, he emerged stronger. Also, the journey towards something great is always painful.
The amount of struggle and pain you go through has no limitation. Struggle often teaches you to be patient and makes us stronger than ever.
So, yes, the journey of struggle is indeed beautiful.
Greatness and madness are next door neighbours and they often borrow each other's sugar. You don't get there without the other.
If you want to achieve something, you need to be crazy about it. Only then you will never give up in your life. The attitude is what helps us to reach greater heights.
Being crazy about something makes you work harder in order to achieve it. So when you are crazy enough about something, a feeling of glory bestows upon us.
Both craziness and greatness are closest to each other. They are like fellow neighbours who call each other for a chat. It is intertwined with each other. One cannot exist without the other.
Live your life like you're the hero of your own movie.
You see, in every film, the hero always conquers every hurdle. Think of yourself as the one. Consider your life as one big movie with twists and turns.
When you imagine yourself as a hero of your own life, all the barriers will start disappearing. You will feel confident enough to face any situation in your life. And slowly, everything will start becoming simple.
So try to be a hero and make your life a hit movie.
To appreciate life you got to know you're going to die.
Human beings are never content in their life. They always start complaining whenever they have a chance. They forget to be grateful for the life they have.
One should stop worrying and start appreciating what we have. Life is short, and so is the journey. And then suddenly, when you are about to lose something, you know the value of it.
When you know that you do not have enough time, you start to admire life. And then instantly everything seems to be beautiful.
Life is too short so, start living.
I love a success story, but even more than a success story; I like a dude who f***s his life up and gets his life together again.
Rogan has explained life very well in this one quote. A story where you start your life again from the bottom is always the best.
He has quoted saying that success story is nice but more than that the life of a person who starts his life again is the best. When a person has reached rock bottom and needs to start again, they need to have courage.
With the right amount of risks and hard work you can start life once again. So even if you want to start again, then do it now. Now is the moment you need to begin with.
The key to happiness doesn't lay in numbers in a bank account but in the way we make others feel and the way they make us feel.
People often feel that success is what makes us happy. And only when you are happy you will be able to enjoy life.
Life is not something to be measured with numbers. Money doesn't make you happy all the time. Money is indeed needed in your life, but happiness is not something you can buy.
Happiness is the way you make others feel. It is something with resonates when you give. When someone smiles because of you, an instant reaction is seen on your face.
So, once in a while, try to be a ray of hope for someone.
If you can control what you eat, you can control all other aspects of your life.
Eating habits are pretty much difficult to control as it is developed over a period of time. The taste of food which we eat gets adapted to our mouth.
Change cannot take place over a night. It takes time and effort to change a thing. So if you truly are determined to change yourself, then start from what you eat.
A better way to kick-off is to manage and keep track of what you eat. And if you can achieve it, then all other things can be controlled.
The time you spend hating on someone robs you of your own time. You are literally hating on yourself and you don't even realize it.
It takes only a small reason for you to hate someone. And for you to hate someone, you need to spend your hour. This process of hating someone is time-consuming.
It makes you a different person altogether. You don't even notice the ample of time you waste on a person. All this takes a huge toll on your behavior.
You start to loathe yourself in the process. Everything happens so fast, and you don't even register the difference in you. Instead, focus on yourself and be the change you want to see.
There's a never-ending ocean of techniques out there.
If you are on a journey of achieving something, be aware of the hurdles you are about to face in your way. If you stumble upon a rock, try to overcome it. Do not complain of those rocks in your way.
If one way closes, think of another one. Take it as a challenge and work towards it. If one of them fails, another way is bound to be there. Start exploring and stop agonizing.
Be sure of one thing: if there is a problem, then there will surely be a way out of it. So begin your search for methods to lessen the hurdles you face.
I've been inspired by a shitload of people in my life so if there's ever anybody that I can inspire, to me that's a huge gift. To be able to turn that back around.
This quote truly amazes me a lot. It has a sense of responsibility and truth hidden with it. It states the lesson that each one of you needs to understand and also something to follow.
Rogan truly had a difficult childhood with the reminisce of his past, which was indeed painful. And as everyone else, he too had lots of people whom he was inspired of.
It takes a lot to be that person who becomes an inspiration for others. He feels that if he is an inspiration to anyone out there, it is a huge deal.
Be inspired and try to inspire all around you.
Live your life like there is a documentary crew following you around and you are analyzing your own behavior.
If someone is watching you every moment, then you surely will be careful of your every move. You will watch out for each step you take. You will be careful of every second in your life.
Imagine your life is going to be documented, and so a unit is after you. In this case, you will start to behave your self. You will think of the consequences before doing things. You will start to change your own self and try to show only the best.
Only imagining this makes a big difference. So instead of waiting, try to live your life the best you can.
Excellence in anything increases your potential in everything.
Even the smallest thing needs to be done perfectly. As sometimes, the smallest are ones that brings a load of happiness.
Always remember that nothing is small or big. Never compare things as it will only increase confusion. The value of things only decreases when compared with others.
Do each thing with all your might. Be perfect at anything and excel at each thing.
Get better at whatever you're doing. So what if you suck at it now. Everybody sucks at everything when they start. But if you love it, and don't lie to yourself, then get better at it.
Whenever we begin something, it is extremely difficult. You may be at your worst. You may be lost and afraid of trying it.
But instead of being terrified, try to take a step towards it. At least take one step at a time. It's okay if you are bad at it. Each one of us has troubles initially. But if you truly want it, then instead of sulking, work for it.
Stop lying to yourself and work towards getting better. Try to be the better you.
Do things that are difficult. It's very important to struggle. You don't get to know yourself without struggle. You don't know who you are until you get tested.
Each of us tries to do things that are simple. No one wants to take long road. Everyone is in search of a shortcut to make their life an easy one.
Instead of trying easier things, start doing the ones which are tough to crack. And when you begin with strenuous tasks, you encounter numerous struggle.
When you start to struggle, you understand your true potential. You get to know what you are capable of. Until circumstances get tough, we don't realize our strength.
So do not give up if the journey gets difficult.
Your attitude has a giant effect not just on your life, but on other peoples lives around you.
Attitude is something that you can change any time you want to. It is something that not only has an effect on you but also on everyone around you.
Our attitude impacts the people around us, and we probably do not even realize its level. We are always affected by the attitude of the people surrounding us, which is why we need to get surrounded with ones who can elevate us.
So, smile and make others happy.
All the time that you spend complaining, you could instead be hustling. You could be chasing your dream. You could be figuring out what you're doing wrong and improving your life.
Instead of focusing on what we have, we always want the things we do not have. We are never satisfied with what we have. The need for more is not a bad thing.
But the habit of complaining is a waste. It reduces our own time and energy. Instead of complaining, start exploring. Know your dreams and work towards them. Find what went wrong and try to correct it.
Figure out what works for you and do it. So follow your dreams and make them a reality.
Reality really is a theatre. There's no other way to describe it. It's all so nonsensical, ridiculous and chaotic.
A theatre is a stage where each and everything is live. Retakes are something which you cannot find on the stage.
Rogan has compared reality with theatre. He says that our reality is something that we can change if we want to. But the changes should start from within.
Reality is something that cannot be described in words. It is something which you have to experience. If you want to change, only then life changes.
It is fully complicated with lots of twists and turns with a number of mixed emotions and plenty of noise.
Write down things you want to improve. Write down things you won't tolerate from yourself. Write down things you never want to see yourself do again.
Whenever we write something down, we make sure to accomplish our goals. We at least try to make efforts so that we can tick some of them. The feeling of completing even a single one gives us the courage to keep on moving.
So when you want to bring a change, take a pen and start scribbling. Write things which you want to be better at. All those habits which you never want to repeat. Make a list which of what you want to achieve.
Remember to at least start listing first and then conquer one by one.
Work for that feeling that you have accomplished something. Don't waste your time on this earth without making a mark.
This quote is my personal favorite among all of his. It is something that each of us needs to keep in mind. It is quite simple and yet a difficult one.
If you do not put your heart and soul, you cannot achieve things. When you truly want things, you put all your sweat and tears into it. Always work for that one moment when you truly achieve something.
If things are difficult, approach them differently but never give up. In this world full of people, at least try to be someone known to few.
Joe Rogan is a person who always had had a winning attitude. All his life, he has tried to be a fighter. His quotes teach us to be a better version of ourselves. Each day is a new beginning so start afresh.
Never quit because one day, you will be an inspiration.
