I went to see the movie, “300” on IMAX with some of the men in our leadership team. It was pretty inspiring. The movie was a combination of Braveheart and Gladiator all put in one.
Classic ingredients to get a guy pumped up: Heroes… fighting for something worth dying for… loyalty… camaraderie… a traitor… sacrifice… honor… glory. Ah-hoo!
If we only had even 30 people like these Spartans, we will see the world transformed – Ah-hoo!
“Give them nothing! But take from them everything!”
“This is where we fight. This is where they die.”
“Remember this day, men, for it will be yours for all time.”
“Taught never to retreat, never to surrender. Taught that death in the battlefield is the greatest glory he could achieve in his life. Spartans: the finest soldiers the world has ever known.”
“A new age has come, an age of freedom. And all will know that 300 Spartans gave their last breath to defend it.”
