One must have to have motivation. Without it they might as well be training for the heck of it. Ryan Reynolds says it best when he says that it is his “purpose” (Drake Bennet, 1). Purpose is a good word for motivation in every general aspect. Roger banister also had a phenomenal purpose as well. His purpose was to break the four minute barrier before he “hung up his spikes for good”. Olympic athletes have a purpose as well, to win their medals and represent their country and team well. Rocky Balboa even had a purpose too. He had a goal to “just go the distance” and for 15 rounds with the champ” (John G Advilsen, 1976). People just don’t do things for the sake of doing it; they have a purpose, a goal or a dream. They fight for it even if they know that they have a “million to one shot” because they are motivated. Motivation is the voice in the back of their head saying “this is why you are doing this; this is what you’re working for”. That voice for rocky was his trainer, someone who knew he had potential but need a reason to want it and fight for it. Without having the voice inside their head, driving them, their chances are million to none. If people will just listen to that voice and let it be their purpose, then they have something to strive for. And once they have that perfec...

... do? He went for it anyway. He looked his goal dead in the eyes and with pure confidence said, “You are mine.” With that dedication people can accomplish their goals. They can finish that 15th round with the best boxer and know that their purpose has brought them there to that place. That all they need is to be determined and only then can they accomplish their goals. That determination is the key to pushing out all the negative thoughts in their mind that holds them back from claiming what they rightfully set out for.
With the three elements of true training anything is possible. Looking at that dream one should be able to seek their motivation in their training, stay faithful and dedicated to it and be determined at all times and know that “ If I do these things correctly, I should have no problem going the distance of surpassing my goal thanks to my training”.

- The Character of Leggatt in The Secret Sharer This essay examines Leggatt as an independent person, rather than as a symbol connected to the captain-narrator, a view shared by many critics. Leggatt is not a negative influence on the captain per se. From an objective point of view, it can be seen that Leggatt's portrayal depends entirely on how the captain (as narrator) perceives him, and that he deserves to be treated as the individual being that he is. Many of Conrad's critics, most notably Albert J.... [tags: Joseph Conrad Secret Sharer]

- This paper argues that Donatello is a true renaissance artist by evaluating his art, life, and time that he lived. One reason that Donatello was proven a true renaissance artist was by his life and the way he lived it. Born in Florence, 1386 Donatello was the son of Niccolo di Betto Bardi who was a member of the Florentine Wool Combers Guild. This gave young Donatello status as the son of a craftsman and placed him on a path of working in the trades. Donatello was educated in the house of the Martelli family, one of the wealthiest Florentine families at that time.... [tags: renaissance artist, statues]

- Throughout The Scarlet Letter, everyone had some form of a secret they’d rather not share, but sometimes not telling can do more harm than good. At the end of the film, Hawthorne left us a quote saying, “Be true, be true, be true.” Hawthorne is trying to say keeping secrets isn't always the best because it only leads to someone getting hurt. Everyone at some point has lied and kept a secret, but it depends on the situation you're in. In the first scene, Hester is pressured to tell the truth about the father’s name, but Hester refuses....
