The men finally reach land! It was incredibly exciting when they reached land, but soon after it was disappointing when they realized they could not stay there for long due to the fact that intense weather conditions did not make it suitable to stay on. The men in general showed an immense amount of motivation because they continually had hope they would eventually get rescued. In my opinion, I am completely unsure of how my motivation level would be. Obviously, I would have to be nothing but optimistic because there is no other choice unless I would desire to die. Although, I believe I would have no incentive to keep hope alive. Additionally in this section, the men continued working together. Team work most likely aided in keeping the motivation of the men high! Again, like I stated in previous blog posts, Shackleton is an amazing leader of this expedition and most likely is the majority of the reason the men stayed as motivated as they did.
