The Story Behind the Story…

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.

Your Turn: What can you take from these stories to improve your life?

  1. I think I can learn to never give up because Sylvester Stallone had a goal and he never gave up after everything he had gone through. Jim Carrey had a bad start at first and had dyslexia but he pushed through and became a comedian.

  2. If you keep trying and never give up on your goals, you will most likely have a successful life. So you you have to keep on pushing through tough times.

  3. Iv’e seen all of his movies. His movies are so awesome . I didn’t know he was poor and went through all that struggle. He is remembered as an amazing actor. He still is actually and he had to sell his best friend to feed himself . He went trough all that and he still became famous.

  4. No matter whats going on you have to go through the worst to get to the better. There is going to be many times in life where your just going to have to face it and dont fall.

  5. Iv’e seen most of his moves and they are cool but i did not know that he was poor it’s sad too see someone like that but he still became famous that’s how you know that he sacrificed every thing just to get famous.
