Which of these lines come directly from the convicted domestic abuser's new promotional video and which did we just make up?
RadiumOne CEO Gurbaksh Chahal was fired from his company after pleading guilty to charges of domestic violence. But he's back in the news, announcing the start of a new firm, called Gravity4, in a video featuring athletes jumping off of cliffs. The video is accompanied by a voiceover that's a mixture of business school gibberish and Tony Robbins style affirmations.
As a quiz, see how many of the following you can identify as real lines from the video, and which are ones we just made up.
A: The biggest sport where you get knocked down, where you get told you're not good enough, where doubt, rejection, and fear try to take over, is called life.
B: In this sport, you have only one option. To keep running, to keep chasing that dream, or to stop and to let it consume you.
C: I always knew one thing, that I was chasing something greater than myself. Something that defined purpose. Something that was immeasurable.
D: They say the two most important days of your life are the day you're born and the day you find out why.
E: Limits are there for a reason: to be broken. They're imaginary. They create boundaries. But when you come from nothing, everything is limitless. You become fearless. You measure success not by numbers, but by courage.
F: It's about going the distance, minus the setback.
G: It's about enjoying the destination, but never getting too comfortable.
H: Just like gravity, your energy attracts everything.
I: That's why I'm never going to stop running, because it's always just the beginning, and there's only one way to live it: Be limitless.
J: I take full responsibility for my actions, and deeply regret hitting and kicking my then-girlfriend an alleged 117 times. After having pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors—down from the forty-five felonies I was charged with—I will be working with anti-domestic violence organizations to put a halt to gender-based violence, for which there is no excuse.
Answers: A-I are all real lines from Chahal's video. J is not.
