I’m not a big big fan of quoting movies because rarely it can be used in real life. However in my attempts to update / remake my music library I came across an old remix that had a ROCKY quote in it. With everything that has been thrown my way for some reason it just seemed to be like “Woooh this hits home ” and in its own weird way made me feel a little more confident because it happened to be one of those things I needed to hear just at the right time.

I know it may not speak to a lot of people but if it can help make one person feel better I will be happy that I wrote this little update. I also encourage people to always keep an open eye to what’s around because inspiration can be found in the most oddest of places.

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 you 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’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying 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!
