The Inspiring Story Behind Stallone’s “Rocky”

with one comment

Rocky, an inspiring movie - but the story behind how Stallone got it made is even more inspiring!

The story behind Rocky is something that I first heard first hand from Tony Robbins, as part of a training he was conducting several years ago. The story was one of the most inspiring tales I’ve heard. I’m a big Rocky fan and had no idea that it was not only created by Stallone, but of the ridiculous courage (some may say massive obsession with a sprinkle of craziness) it took to stay true to his belief in his work and in his vision for how the movie could best be made.

The best revenge is massive success – Sylvester Stallone

Luckily, I’ve  found the story recorded in full on YouTube. I highly recommend listening. If you are going through a tough time. If you are having a challenge staying true to a vision you really believe in. If you are facing rejection in any part of your life. You must listen to this story. It might just make your day – it might just change your life.
