Can you take the hits?

"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, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!"

- Rocky Balboa (The Italian Stallion)

You already know that your life isn't going to be easy. You already know that there are people that don't want you to succeed. Are you willing to take the hits that life is going to throw at you? Life hits really hard and it will knock the wind out of you but its only to remind your lungs, how sweet the air is and how alive you are. You have power to persevere through all obstacles and valleys in your life. You just have to stay focused and motivated. You can make it. Just keep taking it and pushing forward!
