I’ve seen this super cute video floating by on tumblr ocassionally and finally watched it and was immediately overcome by shame because I hadn’t clicked on it before. Of course I am exaggerating when I say shame because Shuzo Matsuoka won’t let me feel any negative emotions! Never give up!!

So I looked him up! Apparently Shuzo Matsuoka is a former famous Japanese tennis player who has taken up making motivational videos. I wish I could see all of them translated, but all I found was a transcript of another video here. I love this:

I’m gonna do my best intently. […] Be intent!!
Go for it! Go for it! You can do it! You can do it! You can do it absolutely!! Go for it! you can do more!! You can do it!
No, it’s idle fear!! Go for it!! Go for it!! That’s it!! That’s it!! Don’t give up! you must go for it aggressively and positively! Go for it! […]
Don’t pay it any mind. Don’t let it get you down.
That’s all right. It’s going to be fine. […]
Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop giving up! […]
“Am I going to be OK? a ha~” The future makes you afraid.
So, Be intent! Do one thing intently.
Yeah! Do live the present moment, everybody.
It makes you energetic!! […]
You feel frustrated, don’t you. I know. There are many things which don’t go the way you want them to.
Although I come to Ishikawa and find the tasty crabs before my very eyes, I can’t eat them. I must put up with that. it happens sometimes.
There are realy many things which don’t go the way I want them to. […]

Go for it! Go for it! You can do it! You can do it! You can do it absolutely!! Go for it! you can do more!! You can do it!
No, it’s idle fear!! Go for it!! Go for it!! That’s it!! That’s it!! Don’t give up! you must go for it aggressively and positively! Go for it! Go for it […]
I hope you’re gonna be cool!

This is like totally on the level of Jenny Holzer’s truisims for me, I’m sorry, I hope you understand. BE INTENT.

Exams are coming up for me and the internet is whispering that it’s already finals week in the US. But whatever you’re doing right now and you’re lacking some hope or motivation, or whatever feeling you’re going through. Here is some hope! Don’t stop! You can do this!! Let’s do it together.
