"Dream big and dare to fail.” Quotes lifetime natural Vipin Rathore. He continues, "Having small dreams and being afraid to fail is the antithesis of this advice, and it’s something many of us do, even though we may not want to admit it. The two go hand in hand, if you are too afraid of failing you’ll keep your dreams on a leash. But if you overcome that fear, and jump out there fully willing to completely fail, you free your mind to dream up new adventures and goals for your life. Failure comes with trying, and a life of not trying will not leave you satisfied, so it’s good to continually put yourself out there."

Priya Binion just sent in her profile. She says "I am a fitness athlete/model. A 1st generation Indian American, I'm a 34 year old mother of 2 (ages 11 & 7), and have been happily married for 13 years. I've been active my entire life. Growing up as a competitive gymnast, my love affair with weight training began at the age of 17. Understanding my family's poor medical history and seeing my mother battle diabetes my entire life (she has since passed), I made a lifelong vow to stay active and eat healthy. Upon graduating from high school, I became a certified personal trainer, and trained clients off and on for 12 years, through college and post baby #2. Over the last 17 years, I've had the opportunity to work with some great trainers, nutritionists, and coaches as well. I became a fitness athlete for a number of reasons, but my ultimate goal is to become a 'health & fitness' ambassador for the people of India. I want to teach and inspire Indian especially. I would also like to spread awareness about the sport of fitness/bodybuilding throughout India too. I believe I'm an example of what it means to break social and cultural barriers to follow a dream. I understand competing and modeling in the industry will give me the exposure necessary to make my aspirations come true. I am also actively seeking sponsorship and collaboration opportunities!"
