Rocky:  Work For It

Whatever your ambition or goal, you will never succeed unless you get the work done. You can’t biohack your way around it, nor positive mindset your way through it. You simply have to train and train hard. In Rocky II, this lesson was eloquently spelled out by Rocky's trainer,Mickey: “For a 45-minute fight, you gotta train hard for 45,000 minutes. 45,000! That's ten weeks, that's ten hours a day, ya listenin'? And you ain't even trained one!” 


As well as getting the work done, sometimes you have to be willing to do more. Sometimes you’re going to need push harder and hurt more than you realize to achieve success. In Rocky IV, Rocky faced his toughest opponent in the undefeated Russian Ivan Drago. To prepare for the fight, Rocky was forced to train on his own in the middle a Russian winter. To win the fight, Rocky and his support team knew he would need to train harder and push himself beyond what he had done before: “You’re gonna have to go through hell, worse than any nightmare you’ve ever dreamed. But when it’s over, I know you'll be the one standing. You Know what you have to do. Do it! Do it!
