Do you remember back in January when we told you Ricky Whittle (Calvin Valentine) was nominated for something called a TRIC Award? Yeah, we had no idea what it was either, but, good news, Ricky won it! He came away as victor of the TV Soap Personality category. IN YOUR FACE, STACEY SLATER!
So, to belatedly celebrate Ricky’s greatness, we’ve compiled our top ten Ricky Whittle mottos that have no doubt helped him along the way in capturing such an accolade. Oh yeah, Ricky’s quite the philosopher! He leaves us with something to ponder over on daily basis. He’s like the Mr. Motivator of the mind! He is Twitter’s great thinker!
The many thoughts of Sir Ricky Whittle…
“When you reduce life to black and white, you never see rainbows.”
“If you want to make a permanent change, stop focusing on the size of your problems and start focusing on the size of you!”
“Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognise them. Head down, sleeves up and make it happen.”
“God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers, for the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.”
“A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it. You grow up wanting to leave and grow old wanting to get back.”
“It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees.”
“You were born an original. Don't die a copy.”
“If your walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, no matter the obstacles, distance or time, eventually you'll make progress.”
“People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents. Aim higher.”
“Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises, be inspired, take the chance.”
And our favourite…
“I'm starving, u know a Nandos is in order today!!! Euston Nandos was genius idea!!”
