bring it on - in it to win it
Life is short. Especially with this recent alleged pandemic of the swine flu it was making me think about the importance of living life to its fullest. I love the mentality of being the underdog and facing great odds. Think about any great sports movie. It's always this mentality of bring it on that makes a great movie. Typically the main character is a man or woman with their back against the wall, no way out and they have to overcome great obstacles in order to achieve great things. Without great risk there cannot be great reward, right?
I don't know who said that, but it sounds pretty good. It's with this same attitude that I typically venture out to the clubs to troll for women. Obviously, for most people rejection is something to be feared and being a short chubby asian guy doesn't help my odds. Usually I have to psyche my self out that life is short and you have to be willing to accept rejection as it comes and put yourself out there. What it really comes down to it, can you imagine what life would be like if you lived with the mentality that you are simply going to be in it to win it.
There's a story about these great Roman warriors that would travel across seas to reach their enemy. As soon as they reached there what they would do is burn their ships, so that there would be no opportunity to retreat. Either you won the battle or you died trying. Think of the things we could accomplish if we lived our lives this way. I like to think that many great Entrepreneurs live their life with this mentality. They put in numbers of hours and often risk all of their assets and bankruptcy in order to fulfill their dream, whatever it may be. I agree with them in the sense that I've never believed in doing things half way. However, it works both ways. Sometimes, this can be to your detriment when you go to places like the casino or to a karaoke bar, but life is short right?
