I’ve never seen the movies (OMG, have I missed something bigger than life?!), but this string of words and thoughts entered my life as I was searching songs for my little Norway holiday video.
“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, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying: You ain’t what you wanna be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!”
– Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa
Today motivation comes from this. It starts from dreams – no scratch that – PLANS that are still alive after hardships. It comes from taking little steps because sometimes you won’t be able to the the bigger ones. Do something, do it every day, get up when you’re beat to your knees. Results will follow.
