Mihai’s Quotes:

“I’ve had high expectations and I’ve always set challenging targets for myself not only sports but also in my professional life and in my academic life so I think I don’t want to sound like a cliche now but if you just set your mind to low targets and you hit low, this is what you get whereas you should you dream for the stars and blend on the moon” 

“There were times that I was not supported by people because they’re not believing in my dreams and in my expectations. In a way maybe this was a bigger trigger that got me even more involved.” 

“When you achieve a challenge it’s like unlocking the gate to a new level and then you have another challenge. This is how you grow as a person.” 

“The more you cultivate positivity on a daily basis, the more you have.” 

“If you don’t use technology wisely then it will affect your sleep.” 

“You need to look inside because healing actually starts from the inside. You need to heal yourself from the inside then you actually see the results outside.” 

“Try to be more cautious of what you’ve been doing differently.” 

“The biggest obstacle was me. My mind, my thoughts.”
