"Life Ain’t About How Hard You Hit"

I was watching Rocky Balboa this evening, rented from Bigflix my friends said It’s ain’t that good but I wanted to give a shot cause I’ve seen all five series of Rocky and surely wanna go for it, somehow missed it on theaters, on HBO so thought of renting and it really went with my expectations. I liked last one as other series cause it gives some kind of inner strength, an inspiration to beat all the odds. I loved following lines a lot when Rocky Balboa’s son asked him not to fight cause people will make fool of him and lots of other hard stuff, in reply he said following words –

Rocky Balboa – “You ain’t believe this, but you used to fit right here (on palm). I’d hold you up and say to your monther: “this kid’s gonna be the best kid in the world. This kid’s gonna be somebody better than anybody ever knew” and you grew up good and wonderful, it was great just watching. Every day was like a privilege.

then the time come for you to be your own man and take on the world, and you did. but somewhere along the line, you changed, you stopped being you.

you let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no good and when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame, like a big shadow. I’ll tell you something you already know.

The world ain’t all sinshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it’ll ┬ábeat 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!

Now if you know what you’re worth, go get what you’re worth, 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, and that ain’t you! you are better than that!…. Until you start believing in yourself, you ain’t gonna have a life.”

Bottom Line is

“Never give up, never stop believing, no matter how hard you get hit, just keep moving forward
