A double-edged sword of sorts, the use of emotion in his statements could have both captivated his audience or caused them to dismiss his point entirely, not wanting to admit to the atrocities being brought to light. By bringing up the suffering inflicted on animals, indigenous peoples, the environment, and the legacy of the American pioneer, Carter taps into the one weakness even the strongest man cannot protect against, what makes us human- emotion. However, these tools could not be drawn blatantly, in the event of them being perceived as a direct attack on his audience. Instead, his words needed to be woven covertly, letting the audience think their subconscious had stumbled upon a moral discovery rather than a skillfully calculated bombardment. With the use of personal stories, remarks about his own emotions, reflections of history, and patriotism, Carter subtly entrenches his own beliefs into the hearts of his audience.
Carter had an intrinsic motivation because he truthfully cared about his job and his players. Carter worried more about motivating his team to achieve their goals, than gaining external rewards.

Determination is what kept him running, ever pushing the envelope of what his body could handle. Terry Fox inspired not only the people of that time, but future generations to come. Fox’s sense of integrity, and absolute selflessness made him a role model for old and young people alike. Fox symbolized much of what is best about Canada; his legacy will forever uplift Canadians and all who are exposed to his accomplishments.

As he exclaims, “That summer job turned out to be one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had.” (pg.1) Even though he was scared or not sure if he wanted to “walk onto playground,” he still took that chance and the second week was ready to venture out on his own. He realized that in order to teach someone or even just coach them you have to earn their respect. For example, he discovered that “blowing a whistle and shouting was not impressive,” (pg.1) or didn’t get them to do anything.
