Commitment - Motivational Video

as I was watching a video of Dartmouth’s rowing coach.

And basically in this story, there’s a father, there’s a son.

He then goes on to tell his team to roll like pigs.

And that simple metaphor created a foundation for everything

Right, in anything we do,
的确 我们做的任何事
there’s the option to go all-in
都可以选择全力以赴
or to walk the line to hedge your bets.

And people so often leave or quit when something becomes difficult.

There’s an easier way, an escape route.

But let me ask you this:
但我问你:
do you think if it was a life or death situation,
你觉得 如果是生死攸关的境况
say you needed water to survive.
比如说 你需要水才能活下去
Would you give up after looking for 3 hours
那你会在苦苦寻找3小时后放弃
and coming up empty-handed?
然后空手而归吗?
Of course not. You keep looking because a life depended on it.
当然不会 你会一直找寻 因为你的生命需要它
Right, there’s no other options available.

If you and your goals aren’t one,

That basic question: how bad do you want it?

Well, if you’re not willing to fully commit to dive into something,

You can talk about our spent routines, habits.
