Shackleton shows motivation in his journey, alone. In setting a goal to walk across Antarctica from coast to coast shows how motivation is well needed to succeed. Creating a journey and having men willing to dive into his goal shows how much you have to depend on your crew to get farther and result in success. In Shackleton’s expedition, it is shown how they each motivate each other and believe that with the right ‘push’ and drive, they can be strong enough to make it through.
I also believe that the ship, “Endurance” has a motivating meaning because endurance is defined by “the ability to exert itself and remain active for a long period of time, as well as its ability to resist, withstand, recover from, and have immunity to trauma, wounds, or fatigue”. This explains the ship perfectly! It takes much motivation for anyone or in this case, anything, to have endurance. ‘Endurance’ and the collision with icebergs on multiple occasions portrayed how motivation to stay alive was much of a necessity in the expedition.
I think that motivation in the broad sense is shown in his plan of the expedition itself and everything the crew and the ship endured exemplified the meaning of motivation.
