I think the second video won because it showed how hard some people work to get what they want. I think everyday you change. Change is something we cannot control, I know for a fact that I've changed since last year. Nothing ever stays the same, the clock is always ticking and things are always changing.

The second video wins . Honestly I don't remember the first video but the second one stood out. It was inspiring, all the things he did and work hard for just his dreams to come through. My age changes.

I liked the second video better because it told a story without the use of words; it showed how you can come from nothing and still become something.

Change is when something isn't the same anymore. It depends what it is, if it were something important like my friends and family, then yeah I would fight for them and I wouldn't give them up easily. I don't think there's a standard for trying too hard or going too far; if you jump off a bridge for a chocolate bar, yeah that's too much but if you dedicate your life to a true passion, I don't think that's too much. It really depends on who you are and what you're passionate about.

I like the second video better because I feel like I can relate to it better because I have given up a lot for dance. I think that change is the progression of the bettering of your life and you are making choices toward a goal that will make you happy. I don't think that you can ever give up to much for something. If you want something bad enough you will give up everything for it and that's how you know when you truly want it. I don't think that there would be a limit for me to give up everything for dance. I already give up my time and my money and my friends for it because I want to be the best that much. I think if you want to be good and you want to be the best you have to give up everything. I have danced against girls who have given up going to school in order for them to achieve their dreams and I think if your willing to give up everything you will achieve it.

I liked the second video best because I can't even remember the first video after watching the second one lol. The second video told a story and the meaning of the order video was kind of hard to follow. The second video was better in my opinion.

I think change is stepping outside of your comfort zone. Anything that makes you feel uncomfortable causes you to change for better or worse. I think if you want something bad enough you can give up everything up until family. As long as you have your family then that's all you need to survive

I like the second video the best. I thought it was cool how he had nothing but that didn't stop him from achieving his goal. I think change is an important part of anyone's life. I think how hard you go after something just depends on what it is and whether it's worth it. If it's for your friends or family or to follow a dream then I don't think you and try "too hard" for anything.

I think the second one wins with the guy that trains to fight. That one spoke louder than words. He was so determined to change his life and fight that he did anything to pay for lessons. That was an amazing video because he had the power to change his life and he did. I think the the smallest thing could change your life, it doesn't have to be big by any means. You have the power to change your life if you want to, that's the way I look at it. There really is no limit, if there's a will there's a way.

Donovan Ross said...

I think the second video wins because it was a lot more inspirational in the fact that this guy could of used all the money he made and bought some new clothes or even a place to stay, he used it to pay for the thing he loves. I think change is a huge way of life, if there wasn't change things would be so dull and boring.

Taryn Wichenko said...

Personally, I felt like I liked the first video better, just because I felt as though I understood the message more than the second. Also, I liked how in the first video there was talking, that helped me to understand the video more.

In my opinion, change can be anything. Doing something differently than you normally do, to looking at things in a new perspective. I feel that change often goes unnoticed because the changes we see are usually small, however sometimes pertain to a bigger picture. Starting small is how every major change must be made, so I feel it is important that people realize the significance of even minor changes.

Rebecca Roger said...

I liked the first video more because it really inspires you to be open to change, and that we should be changing more than we are, because it's not always a bad thing.
I classify change as when something isn't the same as it used to be, it's different. I think that going to the point of getting yourself hurt or put into dangerous situations is "too much" for going after something. You should always put your health and safety ahead of anything else.

Kendra Smith said...

I liked the second video more. Just because the first one didn't really grab my attention or inspire me to change. I like how the second one showed the change in someone's life and how he bettered himself. If you really want to change something I don't think there should be a limit. If you lose everything then maybe you should rethink your approach you take to change.

Katherine Gursky said...

I liked the second video better. I liked it because I thought it was really heartwarming for a homeless man to just wakeup one day and want to change for the better, and to do everything it takes to do so. In my opinion I don't think there is a "too much" when it comes to going after what you want. I feel like people should work hard and do whatever it takes to get what you really want, and to not let anyone stop you or tell you otherwise.

Carly Bretecher said...

The winner is the second video because of the way you can see human motivation and how you can achieve something if you really put your mind to it. It was cool to see how anyone can rise up and fix their life if they really want it.
I think that if you have to risk your life or others around you to achieve what you really really want, then you shouldn't do it. When in the second video it showed him getting into a fight for money, that was going too far. Also, if you have to do something illegal, that's also too far. Because is risking your life or the quality of your life really worth what you want so bad? Dedication is one thing, obsession is another.

Madelaine Lapointe said...

I liked the first video better because I understood it more than the second one. I think that change could be anything you choose to do differently to improve or worsen your life. Changing your ways, are based off decisions you make in your life. Beginning with small changes may just affect yourself at first, but with time the changes you make can affect others around you.

Casey Clair said...

I think the How Bad Do You Want It? Video one because I thought it was interesting and even a little inspiring. He pushed his limits and it didn't look like he always used the best methods to get money to get lessons but I think it's inspiring that he went through anything he could to do what he really wanted.

I classify change as anything you do that's noticeably different about yourself to the people closest to you or even yourself whether it's physically, emotionally or mentally. I think "too much" is when you're getting to the point where it's hurting other people or when it's a change for the worse, not for the better. If I lost or gave up everything I think that would be my ultimate limit. It would have to be something huge to get me to give up everything I know and am used to for a dream or for whatever it is that you'd be giving it up for.

Emily Pedreira said...

I liked the second video better because it shows a good view of determination, it makes me more motivated to go after what I want. I think that they're is a limit of going "too far" to achieve something, I personally believe in putting others first so when it comes to my dreams I would never want to hurt someone or not play by the rules to get it. I think determination is a good thing to have but you also have to be aware of the world around you and know not everything will always go the way you want them to, and you shouldn't have to change that with lying and cheating.

Erin Ross Moore said...

I liked the second video best. It was really cool to see how much the man could change in his life when he put his mind to it. He literally started from nothing and still managed to change his life for the better. For me, change can be just about anything. It doesn't have to be a big change. If it's different then I classify that as change.

Kellie J said...

I found it difficult to pay attention to these videos. I think I liked the first video better because it said ''why don't we like to admit we've changed?'' or something like that. I thinks that was a valid point to make. I think change can be either subtle changes or drastic ones. Something amazing or drastic can happen in seconds which could take someone by surprise. That would definitely make a impression in a person's life. Or somethings can change you slowly over time and it would take your a while to actually realize you've changed.

Paige Harrington said...

I think the first video was better because it is very motivational and does a good job of explain change.
I think change can be anything, everybody and everything changes over time. There is nothing you can do about it, change isn't a bad always a bad thing; which is why it is important to be open to change.
If you're going after something you really want, I don't think there is a limit. Depending on what it is, you should be willing to lose a lot to get it. I know that if I really want something, I'm doing everything it takes to get it.

Brendan Bretecher said...

The second video was better, but it wasn't that powerful. it was good, but the problem was that we never saw what the man was like a a homeless man, I assume he wasn't doing too well, or he wasn't motivated, but we never see that. we just see him training and fighting people.

Change can be anything, literally anything. it can be a major thing like getting married, or changing your religion, or it can be something as simple as changing what color or type of shoes or underwear yo decide to buy.

Danielle Robak said...

I enjoyed the second one more. The second video was very clear and made a lot of sense I found. I was able to feel what the man was feeling even though I'm not in his situation. He wanted something so bad and worked hard to get it.
I don't think there is a limit. If you want something so bad in life work hard enough to get it for yourself. Obviously nothing illegal or to hurt others but more people need to work harder to end up with the things they want. Life will mean more to everyone if they worked harder for what they want.

Ashlyn Erickson said...

I think the second video was more inspirational than the first. It was a better visual representation of someone working hard to get what they want. The first one didn't promote as strong of a message. Or maybe voice overs over meaningful shots have lost there intensity because I've seen so many.

If I had a goal i really wanted to achieve, I probably wouldn't mind giving up things I enjoy. If I want to do well at school or gymnastics, I'll have to dedicate my time to it, so I won't have much time for other fun things. But it's something I have to do, and want to do well at, so I don't mind giving up a few leisurely activities to achieve a goal that's important to me.

Jared Courchene said...

The second video is victorious because the first video was way too fast and I didn't really catch what the point it was trying to get across, and the second one wins because it was way more inspiring and powerful without words and only through acting it out.

To me change is everything that goes differently from the small things to the big things. There is never "too much" when you want to go after something your passionate about. If i had to lose or give up everything I would have to be completely broken down.

Braxton Anderson said...

I think the second video was a lot better because even though they didn't actual say anything. They still got the message out in a meaningful way.
What is "too much" for after something really comes down to "How bad you really want it". If you want it bad enough you will give what is necessary.

Annika Slimon said...

I believe the winner is the second video, How bad do you want it. It's crazy to think how far some people have come, and how hard people work to get what they want. To "make it".
I think everyone sets there own limits of "too much" or "too far" when it comes to reaching there goals, there is really no right or wrong, it's just what you personally are willing to do or give up to reach that goal you've set.
