This Motivational Speech Will Get You Inspired to Do Anything!
Of course i’m talking about the iconic speech in Rocky Balboa, between father and son, after Rocky’s son accuses him of casting a shadow over his life. The 30 something year old executive is embarrassed about all the talk of Rocky stepping back into the ring to face a fighter of half his age. Maybe it’s frustration that his own career isn’t working out as planned, that he’s transferring it onto his father, but it’s obvious that Rocky is stung by his sons words.
Sylvester Stallone then delivers a heart felt reprimand that resonates with everyone and is applicable to everything. It’s a wake up call that we need to take responsibility of our own lives and to stop blaming others for our set-backs. Success is down to us and there’s nothing we can’t accomplish if we never stop fighting.
The full text of the speech is below and you can watch the iconic speech on the video underneath.
Be ready to get inspired!
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is 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.. It’s 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 point fingers and blame other people. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”
