A Champion’s Inspiration
‘Rocky Heavyweight Collection’ out on Blu-ray February 11!
Featuring all six knockout Rocky films including the first film with a stunning new master, Sylvester Stallone stars in the greatest boxing saga of all time and triumphs as one of the most inspirational characters in cinematic history. Now restored in 4K resolution (four times the clarity of HD), witness every epic, action-packed fight and unforgettable moment as Rocky strives for greatness through sheer determination against impossible odds. This collection contains over three hours of bonus features including a new featurette “8mm Home Movies of Rocky” narrated by Director John Avildsen. Maybe you’re not a heavyweight fighter, but if you’re alive and breathing, these quotes from our favorite underdog to champion, will be applicable to you at some point in your life. What better way to celebrate this collection than the many life relevant quotes found in all six of the legendary films?
“Now if you know what you’re worth than go out and get what you’re worth”
It’s easy to let a setback in life keep you down but realize you are a champion and unique. There is no one in the world that can do exactly what you do, so once you figure out your unique specialty, look for opportunities to share it and make it known!
“Every champion was once a contender that refused to give up”
Looking back at all of history’s greats, they usually share a common trait; they didn’t start from the top, the rose from the top. This should encourage you to know that where you start is not where you end, if you want something bad enough, learn it, study it, and continually go after it. The only difference between the contender and champion is that one gave up while the other continued to try.
“The last thing to age on somebody is their heart”
Your hair will get grey, you might start to lose your teeth, and your pants will probably never fit you the way
they did in your prime, but this Rocky inspired quote reminds us none of that matters when it comes to the heart. This could mean being young at heart or continuing to push through obstacles towards a life goal.
Which leads us to the next point.
“Nothing is real if you don’t believe in who you are”
It is easy to be your own worst critic that is why it is important to be your biggest supporter. It is crucial to have a support system of friends and family that believe in your abilities, but when they can’t be there, you have to be able to remind yourself that you can succeed. Be you’re own champion always.
“You know what you have to do, do it”
Sometimes your most successful moments in life happen when you face the things you fear the most. That could be ending a relationship, starting a new career, or even training for a marathon. Whatever ‘it’ is that you have to do, take a moment to think about it. Take another moment to consult someone trusting and wise, and take a final moment to simply….do it. The time you spend analyzing your hesitancy can take away from the time to get you closer to your goal.
