Well. Okay. I suppose it's good to encourage people to expand their limits. To make people believe they can accomplish more. To have hope. To strive to be he best they can be. That's all good. But when you say "you can beat the world" and take it literally then when that doesn't happen you are filled with dissatisfaction and a feeling of failure. So go ahead and encourage. Yes be your best. But do so without the illusion that doing so will make you any happier than you are right now. Else you will be let down. And yes, This video is like rocky without rocky.
