This section is very motivational! These men endured the worst possible events that could occur. After splitting up on three boats and the boats actually being split up, who would've thought that they would reunite! All three boats make landfall together after 497 days at sea. Motivation is the word to say the least. One part that I really enjoyed was when they said the man that will lose his feet could touch landfall first. This must've been a very touching moment for him being that he's been at sea for 497 days and before he loses his feet (which is unfortunate), he will be first to touch land. Although the seamen endure many different obstacles, Shackleton provides ways to make the seamen feel motivated and certain that they will make it through this difficult time. They went through freezing and windy conditions, little food, few clothing, and many sleepless nights. I don't understand how these men could endure such pain. It takes a lot of self motivation as well which is inspiring.

I feel the same way on how motivational this section really is and how far they are willing to continue on under such unfortunate circumstances. Nothing was stopping them! I thought it was a very touching moment as well when they said the man who loses his feet can touch landfall first.ReplyDelete
I agree as well. This section really showed me why Prof. Berg chose this book for us to read for motivational psychology. These men are more then motivational. It is unreal how many unbearable circumstances they have over came in this book. So inspiring!ReplyDelete
I found this section extremely motivational and awe-inspiring as well. The men are clearly determined to survive despite the horrible conditions they had to face. I hope their suffering ends with this section!ReplyDelete
I definitely think this section was the most motivational part of the book! The crew was so determined despite everything that they had been through.ReplyDelete
