I did enjoy the film, though, in all honesty I was a lil disappointed by it (I really hoped they’d have made more out of the whole change of destiny thang).
Do I believe people can achieve their potential while being in love?
^I’d say this can really go a number of ways^
For every guy that is distracted & has the motivation to achieve greatness derailed by the potential madness & complacency that being in love can breed, their is probably another guy/girl who would be positively BUOYED by having such an emotional attachment.
Avoiding apathy is key…though, apathy can equally be a by-product of being too comfortable OR too afraid/unhappy etc. [/quote]
We can definitely agree here, but couldn’t it be argued that if one were legitimately in love it would cause contentment? How could it not? [/quote]
Very much so…though, I’d still say it comes down to the individual.
An athlete, for example falling in love 6 months before the Olympics might well lose focus with his or her training. Then again, how about an athlete with 2 or more years to prepare, falling in love in this instance might be more conducive to the athlete’s preparation (especially if he/she was thinking of giving up their ‘Olympic Dream’ & the their lover was really supportive of their ambitions).
