Since I have started reading the book Endurance, it really got me thinking about the men on the ship and how much motivation they really did have. Along with that, it also made me think about my life and the lives around me. When I look around, I see people who are striving to be the best or do great things. I myself try to be as motivated or even half as motivated as those men in the book. They risked their lives every day to do what we would call impossible. Even though sometimes it is hard to get out of bed and get yourself going in the morning, it is still so important to always think positive. What motivates people? What is the one thing that fuels people to begin their day? To some, this could be money. To others, motivation could come from making a difference in someone's life. Having this motivation in your life will give you something to always look forward to. For the lives of these men, they fought every day to get through whatever attack was happening and signed up for something that was not only dangerous, but deadly.


  1. I agree with your post a lot, the book is incredibly motivating just to read. To see what these men went through and we complain about getting out of our comfy beds in the morning. We need to think about how worse off people have it yet still have motivation, and that should help us feel motivated to do the best we can do!

  2. I agree with the both of you, those men went through so much but yet they were still motivated to keep going on. People do tend to complain about the most simple things, such as you mentioned getting out of bed in the morning whether to go to work or school. For me my motivation is my son, I want to give him the best that I can everyday for me and him. I also agree that being positive will help us make a difference for our selves and people who surround us and share time with us, our positive attitude can also influence them and help them get motivated.
