<p>I know that in general this is the more laidback part of the forums with a mix of laughs, rants, whatever, but thought we should have a thread that just keeps us keeping on no matter what. Post up the stories, pics, vids, art, whatever that motivates you:

Such a great man



It gets a bit heavy on the anti-polical clips, so it was deleted.

I have played sports since I was 4, and have always loved coaches speeches.  Though some things have changed, this always sticks with me:

Jimmy V's speech at the '93 ESPY's. "Don't give up. Don't ever give up." It's too long to post here, but very powerful.

Everytime I hear this song I think of the movie. Then I think about the part of the movie when they see the beach. From then on I take about a 4 minute vacation in my mind.

Maybe you can take a vacation too!!!!!

I recommend headphones.

This song just brings a smile to my face every time I hear it. If I could only take one song with me to an island this would be it.

Again headphones

Journey: Separate Ways (one of the worst videos of the 80's but a classic song)

Boston: More Than a Feeling (just a pure classic that can always put me in a good mood)

I dont have a video of it but as a 35 year old going through bi lateral hip replacement watching Troy Kelly play this weekend has been very encouraging to me and my desire to get back into golf and get back to scratch or better. I was at a 0.9 and trending lower when my hip issues started 3 years ago. For those that dont know he also had a total hip replacement just over 2 years ago. For him to be able to return and play golf at the highest levels really makes me think I can get my game back once I recover from the surgeries.
