Motivation and Inspiration
some days people need to be inspired or driven. thought it would be cool to create a thread to motivate some members of this board to aspire for more.

i watched or read these videos every now and then last year and ended up with a 4.0 at a good university while partying, making money, reading books, working out, etc. if these shits got me to do everything i wanted to do and then some, i hope it could help someone else.

feel free to post anything that makes you want to step your hustle up.

Several of us participated in this thread after I mentioned that I keep a "hype reel" on my computer.

Hype clips to get you pumped

Many of the the clips I put in the Was This Beta? thread are also my motivation clips.

Damn, Jordan. I'm a German guy but I remember staying up at night to watch Chicago Bulls games live on TV. Still a very inspiring figure for me.

I imagine a neighborhood in the 80s, it's late at night, everyone is asleep, but you hear the sound of the ball flying through the net coming from some backyard. That's the sound of MJ practicing.

RE: Motivation and Inspiration
I'm not one for motivational videos really, but I like this one from the Mike Tyson documentary;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KitWepuW2...e=youtu.be

I've always found incredible motivation in roller-coasters. that moment when you wait for the drop - you feel fear but it disappears. Your body takes over as you realise that you have no control. You get thrown around at high speeds which you were never designed for, and survive.

Then you get off the ride and you have complete control over yourself once again.

If I could do that every morning, every day would be awesome.

RE: Motivation and Inspiration
I know a lot of people don't like rap, but this is some real shit. Some of the lyrics might be off...those sites always have mistakes.




I know I ain't telling you nothing you don't already know
Sometimes it's good just at the same thang just to get it in ya brain
Pick yourself up
Get back on ya notes ya feel me
C'mon

[Verse 1:]
Don't let nobody undermined you
Just grind and remain on the post you was assign too
Don't let money and cars blind you
Just take the time to look inside in yourself and find you
Whatever you was is now history
Whatever you are is not greater then what you will be
I'm talking to you, you listening to me?
Your activity is the key not just wishing to be
Why believe when you can know, why hope when you can pray?
Why quit when you can win, why leave when you can stay?
If you wanna put the weed or the drank or the crack down
Fight it like a soldier don't back down
Mind to yourself just habit was given
How can an anonymous object rule something that's limited?
Every minute of the day we got our minds thinking of you
We all got sin so we won't judge you we love you

[Chorus (2x):]
If you ever wanna talk about it (holla at me)
Pick the phone up or come by and (holla at me)
No matter what time of day and night (holla at me)
Don't ever feel like ya bothered with ya boy listen

[Verse 2:]
I'm try'na get you out the bed before ya life is finished
But you keep asking me for five more minutes
If you add up all the extra five minutes of sleep
Then you done slept over the years you done wasted nine weeks
At some point you gotta do it yourself
You a culminating dust just like a book on a shelf
I ain't saying what I'm saying just to preach or to bore you
I rather teach you how to fish then keep catching em for you
You process so much talent and depth
But the problem that I see is you goin' challenge yourself
It's a lot of success from people who be defeated
And tried to fail multiple times before they finally succeed it
You was blessed with the very same thang they got
The only differences between you and them is they didn't stop
Keep yourself up player, stay focus and driven
Cause when you stop chasing ya dreams is when ya stop living

[Repeat Chorus (2x):]

[Verse 3:]
Don't let the pressure stress ya
You can't go through life feeling like the world won't test ya
What's done is done that milk is spilt
It ain't mentally good for ya to keep holding that guilt
Confessional is step 1, changing is step 2
Problem is everybody forgave you except you
If I don't give you this advice what kind of friend would I be?
I'm telling you the same things I would want you to tell me
Feeling sorry for our self, acting like people owe us
Always gravitating toward things that ain't good for us
And girl don't get all depressed over a dawg from ya past
It's like being sad cause the garbage man picked up the trash
You might be blinded by emotional or sometime a friend
Can access your world better from the outside looking within
I can ride with you to the end if I lead you great
But if you don't think you are, my thoughts carried no weight

RE: Motivation and Inspiration
Damn Houston, that song is awesome (and side note, I pretty much HATE rap nowadays....miss the times when it actually used to be about something real like the song you chose).

Anyways, I REALLY wanna bump this thread because motivation/passion/inspiration is so important in game/life (or at least I feel like it.) People are gonna go through your ups and downs and life (love the quote from the movie Blow about this..."When you're up...when your down" ) - and yes, when things are down...its hard as F*** to get back up-but you GOT to. To all the guys (and girls) on here trying to find jobs in this economy or to those struggling and just trying to get better at game with that girl or just the game of life in general (my theory about game is its never about women, but having a fulfilling life, following your passions, exercising, pushing yourself/learning new thing, doing what you want to do, being successful-which then brings EVERYONE into your life because they want to be around that, etc.)-it can be hard to keep that motivation up when you feel like you're being elevated with some success only to get kicked back down again or ya feel like you're just getting kicked while you're already around on the ground.

Motivation is a fire, it burns within you and you must learn how to work your mind to motivate yourself and how to keep it going. Its like momentum. Do nothing with it, and you will stay where you are. Start moving, and other things will get better-giving you more motivation. Then it snowballs and reaches into further aspects of your life (etc.) and almost just becomes infectious.

So here's some choices for me...and if you none of these motivate you or make you want to do something EPIC.....you might not have a pulse. Good huntin boys :

Big fan of Marine's quotes:

"The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!"
Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States, 1945

"There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion."
Gen. William Thornson, U.S. Army

"Courage is endurance for one moment more… "

"The bended knee is not a tradition of our Corps. "
General Alexander A. Vandergrift, USMC
to the Senate Naval Affairs Committee, 5 May 1946
