“Too many people go through life waiting for things to happen instead of making them happen!”
“So many times, it happens too fast, you trade your passion for glory. Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past. You must fight just to keep them alive.” ~Eye of the Tiger/Survivor
Most of us remember Rocky III and the brutal beating Rocky took at the hands of Clubber Lang (the ever-rockin’ Mr. T).
Rocky let success go to his head, took the easy way out, and spent his time reveling in glory and accepting the status quo rather than training fiercely and passionately. He bought what people said about his greatness. And while Rocky was posing with celebrities and kissing babies, Clubber—hungry, lean and mean—was training hard with the aim of knocking Rocky off his pedestal.
Just as with Rocky, it’s easy for us to become complacent, let adoration go to our heads and lose our passion. It’s simpler to settle for being good rather than being great.Details
