How Bad Do You Want it

Summary:

This video depicts the hard work one must go through to be successful. Using an analogy of a old man and young boy out in the water, the speaker explains that if you truly want to succeed, you need to want it more than you want air. Whatever you do, it must be a key piece of your life; it must be a part of you. It will take sacrifice, dedication, and passion.

  • How important is passion in your life? Do you focus more on “resume builders” or things you are truly passionate about?
  • Does seeing other people’s passions inspire and motivate us? How does this translate to leadership? If others see how passionate you are about positive values, (acceptance, positivity, love etc) will it influence them?
