It Makes You Think that, Is a hard mentor really needed to reach our true potential? Is the hunger for validation the greatest motivator to endure pain on the path to greatness? Do the ends justify the means? What does it take to be great?
Because it’s easy to get turned off by the idea and choose comfort. And maybe the goal of the movie is actually to motivate most people who choose the easy way out. Never let go of the sight of your goal. Find a mentor who can see the diamond in you underneath all the rubble.
Find your purpose and strive to become an expert at it, regardless of your family history. Believe in yourself and give your all to your journey, savoring every moment. PURPOSE first, others second. NEVER, EVER try to even think about giving up.
"I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'" - Muhammad Ali. This quote perfectly encapsulates the mindset of Andrew in 'Whiplash'. Yes, growth hurts but Wasted untapped potential hurts even more.
“Your potential, the absolute best you’re capable of—that’s the metric to measure yourself against. Your standards are. Winning is not enough. People can get lucky and win. People can be assholes and win. Anyone can win. But not everyone is the best possible version of themselves.”
― Ryan Holiday, Ego Is the Enemy
