I just cannot overcome this statement. I saw Lone Survivor day before and in the beginning of the movie the narrator makes this statement – “Do whatever you want but just find an excuse to win.”
This statement just threw me back. I do tend to crib a lot when I am unable to achieve something. It is human nature to give reasons for everything. Sometimes even before we set ourselves to achieve something our defense mechanism has already prepared us with reasons to give if we are unable to accomplish the task.
It is always about mind over everything. If we can really get this ingrained into ourselves we would be able to achieve things that we thought we were incapable off. Push ourselves to the limit and define new milestones. This is what this movie teaches us very well.
