Inspiration from Rocky Balboa

Last week I was reminded of this scene from Rocky, and I wanted to share it with you. It might just give you a little inspiration when you need it most.

“But somewhere along the line you changed. You stopped being you. You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no good, and when things got hard you started looking for somethin’ to blame, like a big shadow.

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows, it’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.

“You, me, nobody is gonna hit as hard as life! But it ain’t about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep movin’ forward, how much you can take…and keep movin’ forward. That’s how winning is done!

“Now, if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth! But you gotta be willing to take the hits and not pointin’ fingers sayin’ you ain’t where you wanna be because of him or her or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!

“…But until you start believing in yourself, you ain’t gonna have a life.”
