Generation Iron Kai Greene Quotes

Inspirational words of wisdom from The Predator.

As many of you know, Kai Greene is more than just a massive bodybuilder at the top tier level of the IFBB. He is a visionary – expressing his dramatic thoughts and ambitions through various mediums. Whether it be his extravagant guest posing containing masks and custom costumes; his art projects, or simply sitting down with fans and holding a seminar that shares his voice with all his fans in an intimate setting. Kai Greene is motivational in more ways than one.

That’s why we decided to take a look at some of the most motivational quotes that Kai has shared through his interviews, seminars, and social media. We dare you not to get pumped up after hearing these 8 killer quotes from The Predator himself:

On the hero’s journey and contribution to future generations:

“There were no signs of a road.. nothing but shattered glass bottles and jagged rocks… My friends, this road at one point in time was created by one man.. one women in the hope that one day it would serve for a better purpose… Today that road has become a sidewalk with flowers and benches lining from side to side. The road has come into existence by the efforts of every traveler and the hope of that one individual.”

On the importance of drive:

“The most important thing necessary is desire.”

When words aren’t enough:

“If we could say it in words, there would be no reason to bodybuild, no reason to sing, and no reason to paint. I encourage you to ‘do something that words can not simply explain'”

On the beauty of the attempt:

“If your trying to lose weight, or to improve yourself, or to love, or to make the world a better place, you have already achieved something wonderful, before you even begin. “Forget failure”. If things don’t work out the way you want, hold your head up high and be proud. And try again. And again.”

On believing:

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.”

On destiny:

“Anyone can train to be a gladiator. What marks you out is having the mindset of a champion. When you are destined for greatness, it shows in everything you do. It becomes you.”

On looking forward:

“Sometimes people with the worst pasts end up creating the best futures.”

Bodybuilding is more than just a sport – it’s a lifestyle and community. As important as competition and the desire to grow stronger are to the sport – what is also important is to inspire future generations to go forth and become the next greats. Kai does so with his words. Others may do it with action. But what is important is that we all share in this sport and this world as one. As Kai says it best:

“The bound of iron keeps us together.”
