What is the one thing that motivates me with Skyfall?
How sophisticated James “007” Bond is. The old age saying that every guy wants to be him and every lady wants to be with him really does apply. He’s overly confident and grossly lacking faults. Highly intelligent and highly motivated, he’s been to Oxford and the SAS (Special Air Services) *the equivalent of the U.S. Delta Force* and now serves with Her Majesty’s Secret Service. James Bond is the man.
What this movie’s famous line?
M played by Judi Dench
“Though much is taken, much abides, and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are. One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
What elemental message do I see?
Train hard, work hard. I understand Bond is character but the principles behind his eminence is still a good model to follow. Stop watching television unless they’re awesome movies. Stop procrastinating and get moving.
