Monday Morning Motivation – the underdog

4 May

Here’s the thing that makes life so interesting. The theory of evolution claims that only the strong shall survive. Maybe so…maybe so…But the theory of competition says just because they’re the strong, doesn’t mean they can’t get their asses kicked. That’s right. See what every long shot, come-from-behind underdog will tell you is this: the other guy may in fact be the favourite, the odds maybe stacked against you, fair enough, but what the odds don’t know is this isn’t a math test. This is a completely different kind of test. One where PASSION has a funny way of trumping logic. So before you step up to the starting line, before the whistle blows, and the clock starts ticking, just remember out here the results don’t always add up. No matter what the stats may say, and the experts may think, and the commentators may have predicted, when the race is on all bets are off. Don’t be surprised if someone decides to flip the script and take a pass on yelling uncle. And then suddenly as the old saying goes, WE GOT OURSELVES A GAME!

    Great video! I think it applies to life generally, even outside of sport competition. Those who want it the most will be the ones who get it while those best suited to succeed (whatever it is in) might just not want it badly enough.
