Rocky – An Inspirational Speech To Help You Get Through The Week

February 20th, 2011

An inspirational speech to help you get through the week. Love this! I remember watching Rocky as a kid and afterwards trying to practice all the same training exercises. Running up and down stairs, running in deep snow, and hitting the speed bag. I still have a handball like the one he bounces in the movie that I carry with me from time to time. Below is the speech Rocky gives to his son in the video. Reading it from time-to-time is a great way to stay humble.

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! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya 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!
