One of the most powerful motivational scenes I have ever come by is from the Japanese anime Cyber Formula which about formula one racing on a fun, unrealistic level centering on the protagonist driver Hayato. I actually have not watched the whole show, but the last episode, regardless of whether you know the story beforehand is extremely powerful.
It answers the key question for all of us as we get out of bed each day?
Why are you doing what you do?
There are a lot of people who bring up the issue of YOUR WHY when preaching motivation and success. In probably the mostly viewed Ted talk out there right now, Simon Sinek repeats the same statement over and over again :
“People don’t buy what you do. They buy WHY you do it”.
“Your why has to be greater than that knock down” says Eric Thomas from the famous YouTube motivational video titled ‘Resiliency’. Click here for that
Seriously, why get out of bed? You are already behind everybody else! Why still try? Why even bother? If you try to find a rational answer to this question, I m telling you are not going to get far. The screenshots below share a “WHY” that has motivated me everyday to liberate myself from fatigue, fear, doubt. The driver Henri (the purple mullet driver guy) struggles to go on with the race, KNOWING that he is now too far behind in terms of his time to win the race overall. See what he goes through.
