Ruk Digest 6/26

Hello Fellow Rukkers!

1. The Mindset of Failure

A really good video on how to spot whether or not someone is going to fail (it's geared towards working out, but really it can be applied to anything). 

"People who require you to motivate them are already lost, they're gone, they're going to fail."

"The wrong words are said all the time, and all it would take would be for the person to rephrase things in a way that would benefit them, and empower them, rather than de-powering them."

I highly recommend watching the whole 8 - minute video.

2. A Pushup Challenge Where I Bet You Won't Last 2 Minutes

I've tried it and it's brutal. 

You think it's not so bad when you watch it, but a minute into the challenge, ONLY one minute into it, the struggle really sets in. 

Anyone that can last the whole song and can prove it on video, I'll give $100 dollars to.

No cheating. Real pushups. Chest touches the ground every time to qualify. 

3.  This Is The World's Largest Nerf Gun

It's so powerful, that it obliterates watermelons.
