Three Fearless Lessons From Max Holloway

1. Challenge Yourself

Try to do something new every day. Consider life an adventure.

2. Resigning is not a solution

3. It is important to teach your mind how to think for yourself

Favorite Quotes From Max Holloway 

I want to become a champion. Later in my career, if I start getting better, then I can do the exhibition matches for cash and stuff.

People have success. They make a lot of money. They are able to get power and put themselves above others. They ignore people and try to fit into the new groups they feel they should be with. I didn’t believe it. I’m still human.

Depression is real. That really hit me hard. I was at a stage where I couldn’t speak to anyone. Only my son. Both I and my son would do certain things, but I was talking with no one.
