The Rocky Story

"I've been thrown out more than 1,500 times at agents offices in New York." "There aren't 1,500 agents in New York." "I know, I've been to them 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 times..."

"He said he was starving, he couldn't pay for heat in his apartment, his wife was screaming at me everyday to go get a job." I said "well why didn't you?" He said "because I knew that if I got a job, I'd get seduced back and lose my hunger. I knew the ONLY way I could do this was if it was my only choice. If I burned all other bridges. Because if I did a normal job, I'd be caught up in that rhythm, that stuff, I'd feel okay about my life, and I feel like my dream would just gradually disappear. I wanted to keep that hunger. I felt that hunger was the only thing to my advantage."

At that point he started thinking about touching other people.

And that's how he became a writer. Wow.

I love this Sylvester Stallone line: "The greatest revenge is massive success."

I also love this Tony Robbins line: "KNOW YOUR OUTCOME."

I can't believe how much money he paid to get his dog back!

The dog story is just plain awesome.

Every champion was once a contender that refused to give up.

Just found this. Enjoy.

It ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving on. That's how winning is done.
