Running Through Hell – Motivational Video


All things of value come with a cost And this cost, it’s essential, because without it there’s no triumph There’s no victory It’s what separates out those who really want something; the determined Why do triathletes compete? Why do rowers, row? Runners, run? At a competitive level, it certainly isn’t because it feels good physically Y’Know, it’s quite the opposite They endure a lot of rough situations A lot of painful training Because of a tiny light at the end of the tunnel And that light is how you build upon your self-worth It’s how you define what you’re capable of. And success cannot come to be without adversity How you handle yourself in those adverse situations, that is what defines a person That is how you build your legacy. There will come a time when it hurts, when you have to ask yourself if it’s worth it And consciously avoid quitting, and turning to an easier approach Remember, anyone can run downhill; not many people can run up And the interesting thing is that, that trophy is usually at the top Be careful how you conceptualize the word hell, because hell implies that the suffering will never end. That it’s the ultimate pain. 3 things; 1, you can always be worse off than you are 2, suffering is temporary and 3, when you wake up tomorrow, having giving up will be far more painful than anything else you could have done Everything in life is temporary There’s a quote that got me through many tough times in my life And it’s that pain is temporary but quitting is forever Oh and how true that is I can still remember the times in my life where I know I had more to give That stays with you, But how bad your 2k test hurt, how bad you wanted to sleep before a final exam The pain in your body during the final stretch of a race, that all dissipates, that becomes pretty meaningless looking back It’s the results that matter, it’s the results you remember Because when the hurt is over, right the struggles gone; you either did something great or you didn’t. That’s when things fall into place The hell you experienced was simply a vehicle taking you to your destination So being that you only live once, that you’re fortunate enough to have an oppurtunity to do something significant Why not make it hurt? Rise above what’s uncomfortable and see the big picture. Ride it out! Because when all is said and done, The guy who gives more when it hurts, gets more when its over

  5. Thank you so much for these videos they have helped me so much and of course training will be hard but suffering with the thought of you quitting will always be worse and through my running training these videos have kept me going

  21. Today I Learned

    1. All things of value come with a cost
    2. There is no success without adversity, and how you handle yourself at those times is what defines you
    3. Consciously avoid quitting. Anyone can run downhill, it takes more to go uphill – where the trophy is

  22. I listen to this before every workout. Lifting, running, riding, and swimming. I am that person who loses interest after a few months. But, this keeps me hype. Keeps my eye on the prize. So many excellent quotes in this video.

  23. ive grinded for my sport but never thought I could make it big, but I know I can try harder but never thought I’ve needed it and that even if I tried harder I’d never make it big but I’ve been searching for motivational videos to help me and I watch this and it’s as if my minds rewinded. I’m going to push myself harder

  24. He is wrong, though. It does feel good to play hockey at a competative level. I would ever have trained 7 days a week if it did not feel fucking incredible.

  25. People want something…When i was a Kid I wanted to eat at Denny's or Red Lobster. Did i need to eat there?? No

  27. I am going to organise a corporate cup for my firm, how can I inspire my collegues to run ? ANy motivational stories ? E.g Ronnie O'Sullivan ?

  28. Does anyone else think it’s easier to run uphill lol running down I have to hold myself back so I don’t fall and crack my head open 😂

  30. Everytime im during my summer training and I feel like I want to quit. Like I can’t give anymore left in me. I just play this video. Very inspirational and very motivational

  31. Just ran my first Ultra Marathon this weekend. 52KM – it was hell and the last 4 miles I wanted to quite 5 times. But what he says is true, pain is temporary. The shame of me having quite my first ultra even though I told everyone I'd do it would have followed and haunted me.

  32. I run 10 km non stop daily morning after loosing 18 kg fat yes the hell you experience is just a vehicle taking you to your destination

  33. Because of this ,I put on my running shoes , went out and beat my personal best 5km time with the sun pouring death rays on me . So proud

  34. Imma run the 800m race I run it in 4 minutes it's really slow ik that but I can break my record before running the 800m I will listen to this and break my record I believe i can do it with the help of God. I'm a beginner that's why im so slow never ran in my whole entire life.i ran it in 3:50 (:

  35. "Giving up is far more painful than anything else you could have done."
    Well there is one thing that is more painful. Its becoming the slave of your excuses, its giving up before it even started. I started with half a mile, now i'm training for my first half marathon. I always thought my body was "too short" or "too chubby" to run. Don't listen to this bullshit in your head. A bad workout is 1000 times better than no workout. Now go for it.

  36. Going for my second work out of the day: a 3 mile run while my friends party I’m tired of settling when I could be doing something meaningful and productive with my spare time! Running is my therapy!
