Rocky - Inspirational

Industry Observer

A lot of people know the Rocky movies.  He came from the tough streets of Philadelphia.  Not just a fighter, but a true, pure, 'do not give in' fighter.  He is determined, dedicated and pushes himself beyond his limits to exceed his own expectations and that of others.

At the same time, he is a man of values.  He is devoted to his beloved Adrian.  He does not talk bad about people.  He never complained about his situation regardless of the fact he was a struggling fighter to start out.  On top of it all he was a man of passion for what he had in his life!

The rock group Survivor wrote a song that was used in Rocky IV titled 'Burning Heart.'  This is a section of the lyrics that inspires me.  Don't give up!

In the warrior's code
There's no surrender
Though his body says stop
His spirit cries - never!

Deep in our soul
A quiet ember
Know it's you against you
It's the paradox
That drives us on

It's a battle of wills
In the heat of attack
It's the passion that kills
The victory is yours alone


Against all odds Rocky never gave up and quit.
