Motivational Video

Another week, another video.

Don’t Quit gave an intense tone to express the seriousness of being motivated; to strive for success after graduation, before graduation, or for that upcoming exam. Though, it hit me hard when they mention phones; its completely true. I have a hard time getting off my phone since it became my main communication/education tool, especially in quarantine; I manage an organization’s social media, speaking to teachers and students, handing in work, etc. It became so involved with my life that I got pulled into YouTube, and the app store when I’m taking breaks and pulls me to put of other tasks. I realized this before, but this video turned it into a pressing issue for long term goals.

Its pretty tough. The guy goes explaining if you want something so bad, sooner, you had to make sacrifices; but that sacrifice could be anything: your hobbies, sleep, food, maybe even friends or special plans (but TV shows I get since they don’t disappear for a few decades). So, besides teaching how to work to be successful; it made me realize that I have to be sure what I’m throwing myself into, as currently, I don’t have a goal that I want so much to throw away everything.

I assume this post is more for people who watch and get slightly discouraged because they didn’t try hard enough. But that is okay if you don’t want something enough. The effort doesn’t have to be 110% for everything.

They expressed so much in this video that if there is a goal, a line, a dream, anything that you want so greatly, so bad (like you need air) – you need to work for it. Its definitely not good if you slack off since the only real person your letting down is yourself, and you get in a bad place. That is the point.

I’ll leave it here before I start again


Here is the video


Not sure if this is new, but I posted the URL for this video here and got it embed automatically.

Does that work for anyone else?

Motivational Video – May 13

I thought sometimes, and experienced about failures and its stinks, since time and time again I mess up and confirm that I’m not perfect and its an impossible, unachievable goal (unless with some comic-book twist). But this isn’t a comic and that author can’t be relied on.                                   So the question is: how to keep going?

I know I’m late with this post (ha, this is an example of a failure), so after I cringe and taste the humiliation, I might just stop posting in shame; but its the only thing stopping me from gettin’ it done. If I didn’t want this enough, I wouldn’t keep posting; I might even stop going to class if I didn’t care enough. But I do, I do care because I still learn. I like to learn and forgetting one assignment isn’t going to make I huge difference if I get better at posting on time.

Elon Musk –  Against  All  Odds  is a video that addressed this. Featuring Elon Musk; one of the major players in leading the world’s advancements in technology, and we all assume that he got there in one shot; until he recounts his life story before he begun building Tesla – the electric energy company we all know; and the set-backs with his second company – Space X.

The video was a fresh reminder for me that people who seem successful, weren’t born or given something successful and didn’t have to go through any trouble; and then they broke the ice with Musk. Since its inspiring and encouraging to see that no one is hopeless at achieving success. After watching the video; there is with out a doubt, at least once in peoples lives, did they think they can’t do something because they aren’t rich, famous, seemingly talented like those they idolize or so stuck that they gave up. But really, the only difference is the time and place. Successful people are where they are because they worked, they kept trying; they cared enough to achieve their goal and understood what was necessary to get there.
