Good Morning dear readers! And thanks for joining me on the wonderful morning 🙂
I’m feeling pretty good today, woke up at 6. Got my ‘Holy Hour’. Did my journaling, put a list of my goals in the bathroom so I’ll read them every morning, listened to some great classical music via my dad’s Bose Quiet Comfort 15 (amazing headphones), and swam for a bit. I’ll admit I wasnt feeling as good when I woke up, I felt tired but I fought the urge to go back to bed and got the day started.
I’m chilling at Starbucks now, listening to Good Feeling (love the song, makes me feel so damn alive) on my dad’s headphones with my Café Mocha beside me.
So today is Tuesday, and you know what that means, it’s my weekly dose of inspiration for you guys 🙂 today I’m posting a clip from one of the Rocky movies… I haven’t watched any of the movies but I absolutely love the clip, Rocky Balboa best inspirational speech ever (Subtitles). it’s where I got the phrase at the top of my site. Whoever wrote the speech got it so right, life isn’t easy, it isn’t all rainbows and butterflies, but that doesn’t mean you should let it beat you down.
The first time I heard this speech, it really resonated in me, I related to it, I saw my self as Rocky’s son who had gotten lost. I started looking for something to blame when things got tough, i didn’t want to take responsibility or when i did it didn’t last very long before i relapsed. These 6 weeks have been my best run, and i want to keep it that way. So many emotions come into play whenever I watch this, even today. It feels like Rocky is talking to me. I feel motivated, inspired, there are times i feel like tearing when this clip makes me reflect on the times that I was a coward and refused to take on the world, that times that I turtled up and stay within my comfort, not wanting to get hit, not wanting to get hurt… Yes, getting hurt sucks, but it’s part of life, it will help you grow, gain experience and reach for excellence… That is as long as you don’t let life beat you to the ground and stay there instead of fighting back and getting back up.
It dint about how hard you can hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.
Straight from the heart,
Keep Moving Forward
