Sometimes when things get hard you have to ask yourself “what would Rocky Balboa do?”
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 hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. … 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 hit …
— Rocky Balboa (2006)
I haven’t even seen this movie but this quote is spoken at the beginning of a song I just bought yesterday. It’s amazing where you can find inspiration…even without looking.
