Happy New Years! Inspiration from Rocky Balboa

Posted January 6th, 2013 in Design, Inspiration, Personal and tagged , by Victor Tang

I hope everyone started off their new year with tones of exciting goals and resolutions.  New year’s resolutions never seem to work for me so I don’t bother.  Constantly being pro-active about your goals work better than that one day you realize about the things you need to be doing.  If there is something you want to improve, you might as well start right away instead of resting it on a date.

I’m sure everyone has watched at least one of the Rocky movies, which most people would know that these classic movies are highly inspirational.  I’ve made another poster of my favourite Rocky quote. So I guess if i had a new years resolution, you could say the meaning in this quote pretty much sums it.

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 ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get it 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 ya 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

    Hi, I love this quote and the graphics. I am looking for a poster for my son. Could this be made into a poster? Could you do it or could you send me or sell me something printable?
