Michelle Keegan's man knows how to spur himself on


Mark Wright loves getting inspired by motivational quotes.

The former TOWIE star, who is engaged to Michelle Keegan, uses positive mantras to psyche himself up and has learned a lot from the stirring words.

‘I kind of live by them,’ says Mark, 27.

‘And to succeed, you have to make mistakes. You’ve just got to try and try harder to succeed. Don’t let anyone knock you down.

‘Whatever you want to do, you can do. If I want to do something, I will do.

‘On your way up you’re going to make mistakes, you’re going to make wrong decisions, things are going to go wrong.

‘But if you’re not ready for the fight you’re not going to get to where you want to be. That’s probably one of my fascinations. I love inspirational quotes.’

Mark’s so keen on inspiring literature that he always keeps some close by.

‘I read the book The Secret [by Rhonda Byrne] a lot – that’s by my bedside,’ the reality star tells The Sun.

‘That kind of stuff I’m really into. I’ve got loads of quotes on my phone.

‘Like, “Champions aren’t made in gyms, champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will, but the will must be stronger than the skill.”

‘So yeah, I save all these sorts of quotes.’
