As many of my friends and family know I love a good movie speech. Tonight I was reminded of this great speech in the last Rocky movie, Rocky Balboa. Here’s the transcript of the conversation between Rocky and his doubting son:

“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. Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are 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 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 than go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers sayin’ you ain’t what you wanna be because of him or her or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!”

The speech is passionately performed by Sylvester Stallone as he tries to instill a winning attitude into his son in the movie.

Even though it is just a movie, the sentiment is true when it comes to real life. We all have times where we blame the world but true self belief will ultimately mean you will come out on top. it’s the attitude I try to have every day, but know I can do better.

Check out the clip from the 2006 movie. Wow 6 years already since its release.
