SUNDAY MORNING INSPIRATION: Keep Moving Forward…

Sunday Morning Inspirations…usually come with soothing music and great quotes…

Not this one though…

    When was the last time you needed this kind of message…?

    Maritza – that is one of the many things I like about Stallone – he walked the talk to get where he is…

    Kathleen – “When we can walk through the tough times and the easy times with equally much grace, we have found the secret to a joyous life.”

    Thanks for that, and thanks for being a faithful contributor to Sunday Morning Inspiration…

  • I love movie scenes like this-we all need a swift kick in the pants sometimes! I especially like it from Sylvester Stallone, who has lived this way!

  • It’s not how many times you get kicked down. It’s how many times you get up and keep going. Yes, life can be very tough at times. It’s not all a bed of roses, but no one ever promised us a rose garden.

    When we can walk through the tough times and the easy times with equally much grace, we have found the secret to a joyous life.

  • “When we can walk through the tough times and the easy times with equally much grace, we have found the secret to a joyous life.”

    Great quote, Jeff – do you know who said it originally?

  • Thanks for another good one, Jeff! I love how he starts out by saying, “I’m gonna tell you something you already know.” Isn’t that the truth? It’s a perfect reminder that we are totally in control of our own destinies. It’s not events or circumstances that determine the outcome, but our responses to them — and that’s exactly what he’s saying here. I’m not a fan of boxing, but I admire Stallone and his own personal story of persistence and believing in himself. What an inspiration!

    Janet – Don’t we all need those reminders?

    Last weekend was a “Back to the Future” Marathon at our house – someone reminded me about the last thing Doc Brown says at the end of the 3rd one:

    “Your future is not written. No ones is. Make sure you write a good one.”

    Or something like that…

    Later that day 8 year old Caleb asked “Daddy, how do you write your own future?”

    Wow, how cool is that?

    Thanks for your comments, Janet, I appreciate you!

  • Do Something!

    Maybe a bit simplified but I like it. (Keep going, never give up). Thanks for the video, love Stallone… motivating, for sure!

    LadyD – I don’t think “Do something!” is to simplified at all – we all need to hear it, regularly, and then do something AMAZING with our lives…

    Gary – Right on target, brother! It’s in how we respond, isn’t it? We all have stories of how we could have given up, but we responded differently.

    That is winning!

    Donna – You said “you have to be willing to do what it takes” and you are exactly right!

    You know what’s cool? I get to spend time looking thru all kinds of good stuff each week looking for the best for you – I always get inspired!

    Thanks for you!

    Sherrie – You asked:

    “When we can walk through the tough times and the easy times with equally much grace, we have found the secret to a joyous life.”

    Great quote, Jeff – do you know who said it originally?

    I first heard it a few moments ago this morning from my buddy Kathleen Gage here in these comments…whether it is from her originally I don’t know…

    Kathleen?

  • A measure of a person is not what they do in good times, but how they handle themselves in tough times. How many times have we seen incredible achievements born from adversity? Lance Armstrong, John Walsh, Nick Vujicic, and many more.

    The key message I take from this clip is to not only get back up after the punches to the gut, but condition and prepare yourself in the good times to better handle the bad times. Sometimes you can’t avoid the punches, but you can be ready for them and use them to your advantage.

    Chantal – *Chuckle* So glad I can provide a “healthy addiction” here for you – I’m pretty addicted to it myself.

    That’s what cool about Stallone – he walks it in his real life and in his best characters…

    Welcome aboard!

    ~ Jeff

  • I agree especially when he says it will “…it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you LET IT”. This is so true the keyword being “let it”. And, if you don’t want that to happen then you have to be willing to do what it takes to get you out of that or any rut. Classic movies have memorable quotes…love this scene!!

  • Hello Jeff,

    Not only did Kathleen Gage introduce me to your “Sunday Morning Inspiration,” but it really won’t take long before I find myself healthily addicted to it! As a matter of fact, I think I already am! 🙂

    Today’s message is delivered by both a human being (Sylvester Stallone) and a movie character (Rocky Balboa) who definitely walk their talk… and that’s what makes it so inspirational and precious to me!

    Namaste,
    Chantal

  • Awesome dude! I love Stallone. He’s a brilliant businessman, pretty awful actor, but he played to his strengths. And his strengths were persevering and doing what’s necessary.

    He still does it.

    David – Once again brother, we are kindred spirits…

  • I was the originator. But I don’t take credit. It came from Source. I was merely the messenger.

    What a great video clip! Speaking as a home-based network marketing entrepreneur on the “other side of the pond” in the UK, what sets you apart from the other 97% or so is the ability to bounce back each time someone punches you and keep going, no matter what obstacles you encounter along the way. A terrific piece of Monday (by the time I saw it!) Morning Inspiration. Thanks, Jeff.

    We all fall down occasionally but it’s not how often you fall, it’s about how you get back up with grace and determination that counts. This was indeed a reminder message that bears hearing again.
