Rocky’s Life Lessons
I love the Rocky series. I had recently watched Rocky 1 to 6 and the movie is inspiring. This video was taken from Rocky 6 when Rocky is talking to his son about life. I am going to share with you some inspiring quotes taken from the video which teaches us something about life.
The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbow. 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.
Life isn’t that easy and everyone have their fair share of obstacles and challenges. There will be times when things just don’t go smoothly for you and everything that can go wrong just went wrong. However these challenges, problems and obstacles can’t get you down if you don’t allow it.
Nobody can make you angry, hurt you or make you depress if you do not allow it. Donald Trump was almost bankrupt and came back many times richer. Lance Armstrong fought back cancer and went on to win more championship.
Both of them had faced challenges and obstacles but they decided that they do not allow life to beat them to their knees. They got hit hard but they don’t stop. They just kept on moving forward and that is why they are winners.
If you know how much you’re worth, then go out there 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.
Blaming is self sabotaging. You are not going to get anywhere in life if you have a habit of blaming others for what that had happen to you. Results are what we had personally created. If you are not happy with any part of your life, decide to change and change it.
Don’t blame others for your scenarios and no one owe you anything in life. Choosing not to blame others will also instill power to you. Which means you will not act like a victim and you have the power to turn your life around.
Until you start believing in yourself, you ain’t gonna have a life.
What you believe will become your reality. If you do not believe in yourself, most likely you will achieve mediocre results in whatever things that you do. When you believe in something, your mind will automatically search for evidence to support your belief.
If you believe that the iPhone is an awesome product, you will search for evidences to support this particular belief. You may start to find out more functions about the iPhone that is useful to you and the millions of useful apps that you can download.
However if you believe that the iPhone is a lousy product, most likely you will find out evidences that support this belief too. You may find that reception of the iPhone is lousy, the battery life is too short and the camera without a flash can’t really help you take a good picture.
Whatever you believe in will become your reality. So why not choose to believe in something that is positive and beneficial to you?
