Hello MechCommanders,

this should be a motivation for people who suffer from time to time. Not for those who can master MC. They won't need to read this cause they should already know.
So when you are belonging to the people who may have technical issues or crashes - failure of missions due to mission design - AI superiosity - the following words should be a motivation. Never give up, this is the key!

“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!” ~ Rocky Balboa

“Cause if you’re willing to go through all the battling you got to go through to get where you want to get, who’s got the right to stop you? I mean maybe some of you guys got something you never finished, something you really want to do, something you never said to someone, something…and you’re told no, even after you paid your dues? Who’s got the right to tell you that, who? Nobody! It’s your right to listen to your gut, it ain’t nobody’s right to say no after you earned the right to be where you want to be and do what you want to do!” ~ Rocky Balboa

“Going in one more round when you don’t think you can – that’s what makes all the difference in your life. ~ Rocky Balboa

The difference between doing what you love and doing something you hate.
Between I’VE GOT TO, and I GET TO!
That’s the difference! ??Between I GOT TO, and I GET TO!
That’s the difference.

Most people are working for a living, very few are LIVING for their work. LIVING for their vision. LIVING their purpose.

It’s not work when you love what you do. You could put down 80 hours, 100hours a week, no problem, because there’s a level of excitement, of passion and desire to always create and improve ? When you’re going after something you’re passionate about.

It’s not work.

You might say well it’s easy for Mark zuckerberg…? Listen, this applies to anyone, you don’t have to be a billionaire.
It’s about finding something YOU want to do and creating your life’s work around that.

For most, work will take up the majority of their waking hours – why spend the majority of your life doing something you hate… it makes no sense.
You say: but I need to pay the bills… well, CREATE A PLAN NOW, right where you are and work toward making something you ENJOY pay your bills.

Money will come. Because when you share what you love with the world, when our action is infused with your conscious passion… others relate to that.
It won’t take long before your passion income far exceeds your have-to income.

People say: You allot of passion for what you are doing - and it's totally true. And the reason is because it's so hard - that if you don't - any rational person would give up. It's really hard. And you have to do it over a sustain period of time. And if you don't love it - if you are having no fun doing it - if you don't love it - you are gonna give up.

The ones that where successful love what they did so they could go on with it. You know they are really tough. The ones who didn't love it - quit. Cause it's insane. Who wanna put up with the stuff if you don't love it. So it's allot of hard work. And it's allot of worrying - constantly. And if you don't love it - you gonna fail. So you gotta love it - you gonna have passion!

"Do what you have to do... - until you can do what you want to do!"

That's what you need to do!
Instead of watching the TV: ?MAKE A PLAN! ?Instead of a night out: put the plan to work. ?Learn what others are doing to become successful.

Instead of making excuses, write down how you CAN make it happen.??WHAT CAN you do?? WHAT ACTION CAN you take? ?HOW CAN you get closer to your goal?

You say: I have no money to start…
Save. Find an investor… or many investors.?? Do whatever it takes to get it started!
If you REALLY want it to happen you will find a way. ?If not, you will find excuses.

Make a plan.
Work towards WORKING for your PURPOSE.
Create a life you don’t need a vacation from. That’s the goal.

There’s plenty of opportunity for you to make a plan and SAVE towards STARTING your idea.
There have been many people start with nothing and create their dream from scratch. Model these people.
You are worth this.
Never settle for something you don’t want LONG term.
Never settle for anything less than you deserve.
Sacrifice now if you need to, so you can enjoy later, but never settle now, if you do… you won’t enjoy later.

Ulric Kerensky

Life rarely EVER goes exactly as planned.
Often times life will take you in a completely different direction to the path you intended to travel.
No matter what happens… HAVE FAITH!
FAITH, That in THE END, ? Not RIGHT NOW, ? But, IN THE END, it WILL work out!

Faith is believing IT WILL HAPPEN when there are no signs it will happen.
FAITH is believing in your dream when no one else does.
FAITH is sitting in the middle of the STORM OF YOUR LIFE and still being able to close your eyes and PICTURE THE SUNNY SKIES
STILL being able to FEEL THE BETTER days coming, despite the storm all around you. THAT’S FAITH!

MechWarrior victory pose!

Sometimes you may need to RISK IT ALL for a dream only you can see…
Have FAITH in your dream, no matter what you have to sacrifice to get there.
No matter how long it is going to take:? “I HAVE FAITH THIS WILL WORK OUT IN THE END”

Faith is TAKING THE FIRST STEP, ?Even when you can’t see the whole path.
TRUSTING the rest of path will reveal itself in time…?If you keep moving FORWARD!

Faith is stepping out there and HAVING A CRACK when the conditions aren’t perfect.
If you wait for the conditions to be perfect to go after the things you want you might just be waiting forever!??…

Albert Einstein

Einstein once said: ?“Only those who can see the invisible can achieve the impossible”
You must have FAITH what you are picturing in your mind will come to life.

You must have FAITH the struggle will pass!
You must have FAITH YOUR time will come!
Because when you believe in yourself you are unstoppable!
There is no greater asset than FAITH and BELIEF in yourself


Remember it may not happen immediately, ?but just know that in time it ABSOLUTELY WILL HAPPEN.
Long term it’s yours.
Just keep believing and never LOSE FAITH!

Faith is believing IT WILL HAPPEN when there are no signs it will happen.
FAITH is believing in your dream when no one else does. It is believing in YOURSELF when no one else does, because sometimes you may need to risk it all for a dream ONLY YOU can see.

It DOES NOT matter who you are right now, or who you have been.
If you have FAITH and a RELENTLESS desire to succeed, you really can achieve anything in this world.

Have faith you will be great?, and go get it.

Violence, Speed & Momentum!

Violence, Speed & Momentum!

You gotta believe it!
You gotta eat it!
You gotta sleep it!

You want to represent an idea?

You want to represent possibilities?

You can create whatever... - you want to create!

The seperation of talent and skill is one of the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are
trying to excel their dreams or who wanna do things. Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed
by hours and hours and hours of beaten on your craft.

No matter how talented you are. Your talent is gonna fail you when you are not skilled.

Cause it is not about where you come from. It is about heart! You come to a place where - you know
being smart ain't enough. You gotta have heart! The most important thing is to be able - to sacrifice
what you are - for what you will become!

I never really viewed myself as - particulary talented - where i excel is work affinity!
You know while other guys sleeping - i'm working. While other guys eating - i'm working.

Pain is temporary. It may last for a minute - for an hour or a day... or even a year!
But eventually it will subside. And something else will take it's place.

If i quit however... it will last forever! Do you go down just because you feel a little pain?
But i'am exactly where i want to be. Because i realized i gotta commit my very being to this state!

I gotta believe it!
I gotta eat it!
I gotta sleep it!

And until you get there... - you will never be successful in MechCommander - and life!

Once you get there i guarantee you: The World is Yours!
