For The Win Singapore

Just launched a new site last night. It’s mainly going to be a site that showcases inspirational videos of Singapore.

We all go to work, go home to family, think about going for a holiday only to realise that holidays might not have hit the spot.

There are many things we can do that is out of our routine. Things that make us feel alive. Things that others in Singapore have already done and are enjoying immensely on a regular basis.

The teacher that rides a horse on the weekends, the guy that cycles about 100km every week, the office girl that brings her longboard to work and the audio equipment salesman that has his own shop with a full racing track hosting remote control car races every other evening for neighborhood kids.

What inspires you? I hope some of the wonderful videos on FTW.sg will.

What do you love? What motivates you daily to take on the challenge of tomorrow? What makes you try and try again without the slightest clue of when you will ever succeed?

Passion.
Enthusiasm.
Commitment.
Conviction.

These are just letters strung together and called words.

What do you have to show for what you love? But then again, why is there a need to show anything for what you truly love.

This video Freeling really captures this love very well.

Enjoy.

Commit

Curb at Xtreme Skatepark East Coast Parkway Singapore

To commit to something you want to do is easier said than done.

You know what you want to do and you run thru the steps in your head.

You look at thechallengeinfront of you andtell yourself you can do it.

You step up to the challenge and choke.

 

You step up to the challenge again and choke again.

 

Eachchallengeis new, eachchallenge is more difficult than the last.

You think to yourself on the worse that can happen and realise it can’t be that bad.

You step up to the challenge again and you fail.

 

People around you laugh at you.

People more experienced tell you what you are doing wrong.

Some just shake their heads and walk away.

You tell yourself its hard, but you know you know your stuff.

 

Commit.

 

You step up to the challenge and you fail.

You step up to the challenge again and you fail.

You step up to the challenge again and you fail again.

You step up to the challenge again and you almost done it.

You step up to the challenge again and you fail.

You step up to the challenge again and you wipeout.

You groan in pain.

You feel like giving up.

 

Commit.

 

You step up to the challenge again and you fail.

You step up to the challenge again and you were slightly better.

You step up to the challenge again and you fail.

You step up to the challenge again and you nail it.

You smile.

 

No one celebrates with you.

Nothing really happened.
