Default How bad do you want it?

Some ppl need a little motivational kick once in a while. Here's one I like, and a good lesson for life in general (LINK).
Explosions In The Sky makes it easy listening to.

What are some things that get you motivated?

Then I realise my ride is not that hard. Also the corny techno helps.

This video is great motivation, and it's message is really good. This year in my last road race of the season (a stage race), I had one of my worst performances since I started racing. As racers we put a lot into our racing and take great pride when we are able to follow through and be successful in our sport. But when you put so much effort into it, and try so hard, yet come up short, it can be very difficult to find the motivation to continue. At the time this video offered me great inspiration.

While I'm sure many there will probably be many on here that disagree with me on this one, this video also offers some good motivation.

I also like this although strictly not 'training' or 'motivation'
