Having a sort of ‘mid-week crisis’ this morning, I had to look for a little inspiration. Though Einstein and Twain searches always offer a great quote, this particularly stood out to me today. Probably because I will always be a Philly girl at heart, but for Stallone in Rocky Balboa, I find this pretty inspirational!
“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 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 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, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”
Plow forward, take the hits, get back up and make your mark on the world!
Can I just mention as a side note, I’m going to see Expendables 2 this weekend for the SECOND time. I love a great ridiculous action movie!!
