Crossroads between desperate and normal

There is a story about a master and disciple in Talmud. The disciple asked, “how do I get the wisdom you have got?”. The master brought him a pond and plunged his face into the pond. The disciple had not realised the wisdom comes from desperation until he could breathe again. During the 911 terrors in the United State, many people jumped out of the building. Between an easy and painful death, they chose the easy way. How much did they want to live in that chaotic situation before they jumped outside?
The desperation that the disciple wanted, and because the people in the building were eager to live before jumping out, means there is no option or choice.
If there is a mission, it never considers impossibilities.
