The Story Behind the Story…
I have never been a huge fan of Sylvester Stallone. I didn’t not like him, but I certainly didn’t love him either. He talked slow and he moved slow. However, after watching this video, I changed my mind completely. I love underdogs. I love someone who comes from nothing, suffers, perseveres and then succeeds. Watch this video and try not to be impressed.
And, he’s not the only one. There are many stories just like the story above.
Joe’s Perspective: We all start somewhere. We all struggle. We all have difficult moments…weeks…years… maybe even decades. The important thing is to believe in yourself and keep pushing forward. While, none of us will ever go on to make millions of dollars as a movie-star, we can all find our way. It’s difficult to know this when you are in high school, but it is true.
