Monday Motivation: Rocky Balboa

For me, Monday sets the tone for my week. A focused Monday usually means a successful week. Some Mondays, however, I am already looking to Friday. At those times, I need Rocky Balboa to appear out of nowhere and give me a tongue-lashing. Thanks to youtube, he can.

This clip is from the 2006 film Rocky Balboa (Rocky VI). Have a good Monday.

Rocky Balboa: 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, 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 it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!

 

Thanks to my friend Matt for sending this my direction. I needed it.

  • Words of wisdom! I needed it, also. Who doesn’t need a little kick in the pants?

      Or in Rocky’s case, a punch in the gut perhaps?
