“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” – Anonymous

The dawn of a new week can leave us feeling a little uninspired as the joy from the weekend’s activities starts to wear off, and you sink back into reality. So if you’re in need of a six-minute motivational pick-me-up, this video (which has been viewed over 12 million times) will certainly set your wheels in motion and spinning out the door.

How Bad Do You Want It is a powerful video showing an athlete vigorously working out to the narration of some of the most meaningful teachings that have inspired him to keep persevering.

He talks a lot about how many of us want change or a better life, however we’re not prepared to do what it takes to get there, so this quote really struck a chord with us:

“Don’t try to quit, you’re already in pain, you’re already hurt, get a reward from it.”

So true. The internal disappointment we harbor for not achieving our dreams can haunt us everyday; therefore the pain experienced from making a few sacrifices (whether it be to our social lives or sleep) in pursuit of happiness, is well worth it.
