Next time you’re feeling like you’re incapable of accomplishing some task or goal, you should think of Ibrahim Hamato and come to terms with the fact that you’re a quitter and that you must not want what you’re working for bad enough. Who’s Ibrahim Hamato, you ask? He’s the Egyptian ping pong player with no hands who holds his paddle in his mouth.

“I had an accident when I was 10 years old, but I loved table tennis,” Hamato explains in the video. “3 years after my accident I wanted to play again holding the racket under my arm, but it didn’t work out. After trying different options I found myself playing with my mouth.”

So yeah, if that doesn’t light a fire under you, just give up on life.
