One Way Ticket

History is loaded with infamous battles where there was no turning back. After Cortes landed in Mexico he spoke 3 words which would change the history of the New World.

Burn the boats.”

This spoken com­mand left his men with only two decisions – either die in battle or crush their way to victory.

Check out this video and listen to Jacare speak. Many times he had to buy a one way ticket to a match as he had no money for the return.

By doing so — he knew that he had to win.

Listen to a Navy SEAL talk about the “Fight to Win”.

At 19 I made a similar decision. I wish I would have made that choice at 17.. but oh well. I took at one way ticket to San Diego without a chance in the world of becoming a Navy SEAL. I knew that my only hope, my only chance was to lay it all on the line and have no way to back out.

How can you learn from this lesson today? What is a real life example of how you can “burn a boat” and leave you stranded with no chance but to fight your way out?

How about signing up for a local 5k?
