Tweetable Quotes:

“When you have a dream, there’s a burning in your gut...You know when something is right for you, and you know when something isn’t right for you. For me, the signal that was coming into my gut was ‘This is what you always wanted, this is your dream. You’ve got to find a way to go for that dream and go for it.’ ” - Robert Miller

“It’s not the success or the failure, it’s trying. If you’ve got a dream inside of you and you’ve never done it, you don’t want to regret that for the rest of your life. You want to give it a shot. If you make it, great. If you don't, at least you tried.” - Robert Miller 

“It’s not a straight path to success… It’s one step forward, it’s two steps back, it’s three steps sideways. The goal was to always keep moving forward.” - Robert Miller
