I had to include something from the late Roger Ebert. He has a large assortment, and I am sure I will reference him again. Unfortunately, I am also going to be seeking wisdom from the life of the late Margaret Thatcher who passed earlier this morning.
“It’s not about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard to can get hit and keep moving forward.” – Rocky Balboa
I have been sitting on this quote from Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky” because I really liked it, but had so many great lessons/quotes to share. After the last few days though, the quote came to life and I realized that I needed it just as much as I wanted to teach it.
Hits don’t need to be physical; after this week, I’ve learned they can be verbal, fiscal and motivational.
Lesson: There should be no quit. You’re always going to get hit and knocked back every now and again, but there needs to be something in you that wants to move forward and keep striving for something new.
I’m going to try to gather little links to motivational, inspirational or even just ironically funny quotes about life and try to post them once a week. If you see any out there you think should be included, let me know!
