Lyrics from Rocky Balboa (2006) - "It ain't over 'til it's over."
Rocky (1-5) had always been a treat to watch. Recently, I saw Rocky Balboa, the last part of this series and a dialogue from Rocky to his son from a particular scene truly inspired me. I quote that here:
"You let people stick a finger on your face and tell you you are no good, and when things get out of hand, you started looking for sth to blame. Like a big shadow. Let me tell you something you already know. The world aint all sunshine and rainbows. Its a very mean and nasty place. It wont care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep it permanently if you let it. It aint about hard you hit, its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. Thats how its done. Now if you know what's your worth, then go out and get what you are worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits and not pointing fingers saying you werent what you want to be because of him, her or anybody. Cowards do that and that aint you. You better than that."
Well, wish you a very happy 2009!
