By now, this speech from the 2006 installment of the Rocky film franchise, “Rocky Balboa,” has circulated the Internet and made it’s rounds as a solid motivational/inspirational clip. This version of the scene, posted on YouTube, has 1.4 million views alone. But I figured I’d post it as well. I seem to watch this speech, at minimum, once every 6 months to check myself. It’s been watched in some dark times. It’s been watched in some lighter times. But it has definitely cemented it’s place in the foundation of motivational/inspirational material I use on a frequent basis.
Rocky’s motivational speeches could be called simple, but there is no way to argue with the wisdom and important messages they deliver to us as human’s, working to do our best to succeed at this thing called life.
