Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life

Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life

”Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t how hard you can hit. It’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.”

– Rocky, from Rocky Balboa

There isn’t much I can add to this.

Life hits hard sometimes.

Life will land a right hook to the kisser and drop you to the mat.

You’ll want to lay there whimpering and not get back up.

Then you’ll remember why you’re in the fight, why you do what you do, why you’re here on Earth, and before the Ref gets to 10 you’re back on your feet, standing, ready for more.

Now repeat.

Take your licks and go through the same process over and over until you hear the bell that ends the round. Or until the fight is over.

And yes, you can hit back…but remember, it ain’t how hard you can hit, it’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.

That’s how winning is done.
