Rocky: Never Quit
Rocky himself said, “Going that one more round when you don’t think you can - that’s what makes all the difference in your life.”
What Rocky highlighted in this scene is the concept of never quitting. Getting the work done will get you to the start line of your chosen challenge, but during tough events you will require something more. When you are being pushed to your limits, there will come a moment when you consider stopping, giving up, or quitting.
The ability to keep going - to never quit - in such situations is something forged within. It comes from deep within your heart and your mind and needs to be developed during training. To witness this kind of never-quit attitude, watch this clip from the first Rocky film where even Rocky’s trainer tells him to quit (stay down).
Something worth remembering in life: It’s pretty hard to beat someone like Rocky who never quits.
