“It ain’t about how hard you can hit. It’s how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. It’s how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.”

I love this quote. Honestly, I’m not such a big fan of the Rocky movies (especially from Rocky III on), but this quote… wow. Sylvester Stallone has commented that a lot of the movie was based on his struggle to make it as an actor. He didn’t think people would be interested in a story about a struggling actor, but this story about a struggling boxer touched a lot of heartstrings. He says it’s the same battle, just transplanted into a different arena.

I believe this quote applies very well to struggling authors.

I’ll keep reminding myself of that. Keep moving forward.

Keep moving forward.
