OT:Typa ish to get you motivated
Sup fam. I was wondering what the RG community lives by each day to get them motivated. Like are there morals, beliefs ,quotes, hardships etc yall live by each day to persevere. With myself, I usually reflect on great icons who have had their dreams shattered over 100x but still managed to stick it through and attain it. I usually find quotes corny AF since most people post that shit on Facebook or twitter.
When I feel like a Depressed Insomniac hearing the Rocky song/watching Rocky movies usually never fails to make me happy/motivate me…
Studying great come-up stories from people are also a motivator.
Never have to much pride to find a mentor in people, some complete strangers you meet can change your life by saying a few words for 5 seconds.
Besides, for me, that the pain/frustrations of life are motivation to make things better…The hunger justifies the means for me (litteraly at times)
(Sorry couldn’t resist putting in a quote)
Even if you have no control on some circumstances/realities in life, always try to reach for the sky.
Maybe you shouldn’t take advice from a guy named Depressed Insomniac though
@Depressed_Insomniac yea I agree. I’ve never had a mentor in my life, like other kids would. I’ve always had idols I looked up to therefore certain obstacles learn’t were through failure.
My hardship today is I have a History exam I didn’t study at all for :/
The “I Need A Hero” scene in Short Circuit 2 motivates me tbt.
Judge Hope: Speak!
Bing: I haven’t got a speech, I didn’t plan words, I didn’t even try to. I just knew that I had to get here, to stand here and I knew I wanted you to listen; to really listen, not just pull a face like you’re listening, like you do the rest of the time. A face like you’re feeling instead of processing. You pull a face and poke it towards the stage and la-di-da we sing and dance and tumble around and all you see up here, it’s not people, you don’t see people up here, it’s all fodder. And the faker the fodder is the more you love it because fake fodder’s the only thing that works anymore, fake fodder is all that we can stomach — actually not quite all. Real pain, real viciousness, that we can take. Yeah, stick a fat man up a pole and we’ll laugh ourselves feral cause we’ve earned the right, we’ve done cell time and he’s slacking the scum so ha ha ha at him. Cause we’re so out of our minds with desperation we don’t know any better. All we know is fake fodder and buying shit. That’s how we speak to each other, how we express ourselves is buying shit. I have a dream? The peak of our dreams is a new hat for our doppel, a hat that doesn’t exist. It’s not even there, we buy shit that’s not even there. Show us something real and free and beautiful, you couldn’t. It’d break us, we’re too numb for it, our minds would choke. There’s only so much wonder we can bear, that’s why when you find any wonder whatsoever you dole it out in meager portions, and only then til it’s augmented and packaged and pumped through ten thousand pre-assigned filters, til it’s nothing more than a meaningless series of lights, while we ride day-in, day-out — going where? Powering what? All tiny cells in tiny screens and bigger cells in bigger screens and fuck you. Fuck you, that’s what it boils down to is fuck you. Fuck you for sitting there and slowly knitting things worse. Fuck you and your spotlight and your sanctimonious faces and fuck you all, for taking the one thing I ever came close to anything real about anything. For oozing around it and crushing it into a bone, into a joke, one more ugly joke in a kingdom of millions and then fuck you. Fuck you for happening. Fuck you for me, for us, for everyone, fuck you.
The broader context (save the last two minutes) is pretty inspiring, rebellion and shit
I start to think of amputees who were lazy fatasses until they lost a leg or something. And how that made them work hard and do things like climb up Mt. Everest and shit.
And then I tell myself that I better not wait until I get that sort of reminder to start working hard.
