I said,

"There's nothing I can do to inject your heart w willpower.  Other than me standing out here trying to remind you why we do what we do, there's nothing I can do to make you want it."

These conversations are the "mirror," and they either play w their hair and look away or they're locked in and they get it, they acknowledge it, they know it's true.   
There's no reason to NOT work at maximum intensity w full effort, especially when working towards huge goals.  If we're goofing around, playing checkers, ok that might not be an all out effort.  But when we're working towards goals, life changing goals, working towards moments we'll never forget, there's no reason to hold back.
Hold back, stay comfortable, you'll regret the outcome.
Sell out for your cause, for your goals, in every moment possible and you will experience opportunities you never would have otherwise.

The above was just an example of a recent situation I had while working with a team, but think about how easily that mindset translates to all areas of life.  Too many times, we feel we can just coast along and everything will just magically work itself out.  Or there's a room full of people, but no ones taking the controls and steering the ship because everyone's either too busy passing the buck off onto someone else or no one wants responsibility or even worse yet, they're afraid to fail.
In every situation, you have a choice.  You can sit back and hope to get lucky, hope that someone will just pull you towards success or you can get off your ass and do everything possible to make it happen.  

  "The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights."
