Two types of Pain

I was inspired today by a made show on MTV (who would of thought!).  Taking the advice of my dear husband who likes to find the revelation in every tv and movie he watches.  So amazingly I did! It was a show about a highschool cheerleading squad wanting to get made over into a cheerleading squad worthy of respect from their peers. As a result they would be given the opportunity to try out for a spot to perform at the half-time of the bowl game.  This was a very big deal for them, no sports team at their school had the opportunity to perform out of state, less known a bowl game.
Throughout this episode the girls had worked extremely hard and overcome many obstacles that included losing two teamates due to them quitting.  They had a tryout for boys to add more power to their stunts.  They picked four boys and one of the boys had to quit. They had finally began to come together and gel as a team and performers.  They even began to recognize how far they had come themselves.  In return they began to slack off and goof off, during important practice time. After their made coach informed them of her dislike for their behavior, she decided if they were gonna act that way it could be their last practice.  So the captain walked out, and all the girls followed.  Only the guys were willing to stay.  So one of the guys went outside to talk with the girls and encourage them to come back in.  This is the part of the episode that inspired me.  He encouraged them and rallied them like an adult would.  He told them how this was an opportunity of a life time and they had already come so far, to just throw it away.  He told them, "There are two types of pain, Pain of Discipline and Pain of regret." He explained to them how what they were feeling, that made them want to quit and walk out on the team, and everything they have felt up to that point was pain of discipline.  Then he explained that if they didn't go back in that they would experience the latter, pain of regret.  He told them how the pain of regret is alot worse.  He rallied them back into spirits and they all went back in including the captain.  I thought this was quite inspiring considering that he was one of the new guys who just joined.  He had worked very hard up to that point, but he also witnessed the time and effort of the girls, and they had gained his respect.
So what I want to say to you all is this:

 when you are ready to give up and quit on your goals and things in your life that seem to be getting the best of you, just think about the two types of pain.  You can either have the pain of discipline or the pain of regret! You pick.  The pain of discipline always makes you better and stronger in the end; the pain of regret is intended to keep you from going forward.

That speaks to me on many different levels and I plan on using it to motivate myself through hard time like  when it come to working out  LoL! Join me in adding this to the list of your motivations for life.  Feel free to share some personal motivations you may use yourself.

Oh yeah, and they went on to try out for the bowl game and won the spot and perform their little buts off.  It was very exciting for them and they gained plenty of memories and respect.
