A true underdog for us all!
Sylvester Stallone starred as a down-on-his-fortunes contender from the ghettos of Philadelphia who gets to be World Heavyweight Champion, Rocky Balboa dependably was a definitive case of how anybody can beat impediments with diligent work, assurance and enthusiasm.
Diligent work, assurance and enthusiasm rise above the boxing ring
They are characteristics that any entrepreneur would find rewarding. Yet, don’t believe me. The leading fashion tycoon and Shark Tank financial specialist Daymond John thinks along these lines, as well.
John’s book, The Power of Broke: How Empty Pockets, a Tight Budget, and a Hunger for Success Can Become Your Greatest Competitive Advantage, discusses how any trying entrepreneur can take a lesson or two from Rocky Balboa. John focuses to Rocky’s craving and eagerness to be the best, and how entrepreneurs need to figure out their own path towards great achievement. This would be considered as an edgier way to strive for what you want.
In the book, John discusses how the movie franchise of Rocky Balboa is a great lesson for entrepreneurs…
In the third Rocky installment, after getting to be champion, Rocky was placed in a situation where he had taken his ” eyes off the prize.” The greatest lesson that entrepreneurs can get from this is that at the end of the day, it’s common for people to lose their enthusiasm. Hence, they lose their edge.
The same goes in business, when you need or want something, you figure out how to get there
When you expect it, when you feel qualified for it, certain things will be put into perspective and you start to realize the bigger picture.
So, get up! And continue advancing!
