Sexy Inspiration – Mohammad Ali, The Rocky Story and Snatch

I was just blasted by this video, filled with sexy inspiration.

Some of the quotes in here by Mohammad Ali are moving.

His belief in himself and confidently speaking it in front of the world shows the power of words.

Some would say, if I was Mohammad Ali, then I would talk like that. They have it backwards. Him talking like that made him the great Mohammad Ali:

“I’m a show you how great I am!”

“Last night I cut the light in my bedroom, hit the switch, was in bed before the room was dark!”

“Only last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick, I’m so mean I make medicine sick!”

“I have wrestled with a alligator, I done tossled with a whale, I done handcuffed lightnin’, thrown thunder in jail!”

“All you chumps are gonna bow when I whoop him, all of ya, I know you got him, I know you got him picked, but the man’s in trouble, I’m a show you how great I am!”

Then some of Sylvester Stallone’s amazing quotes in his script for Rocky Balboa spoken by him to his son in the movie, from the video above. I suggest hitting play and reading along with what he says.

“Lemme tell you something you already know…the world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows, it’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.

You me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winnin’ is done!

Cuz if you’re willing to go through all the battlin’ you gotta go through to get to where ya wanna get, who’s got the right to stop you? I mean maybe some of you guys got something you never finished, something you really wanna do, something you never said someone… SOMETHIN’!!

And you don’t know, even after you pay your dues, who’s got the right to tell you that? Who? Nobody!!

It’s your right to listen to your gut, ain’t nobody’s right to say no, not to your earned right to be what you wanna be and do what you wanna do.

Now if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth, but you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not point fingers and saying ‘you ain’t where you wanna be because of him or her or anybody’!

Cowards do that and that ain’t you, you’re better that!!”

If you know Sylvester Stallone’s story about getting Rocky accepted, then you know what he said above is probably inspired by him, for that perfectly articulated what he did himself.

If you haven’t heard it, Tony Robbins does a phenomenal rendition of the story as he remembers it from Sylvester.

You can also look up Sylvester himself telling it in a 4 part video, just awe inspiring amazing.

After listening to this video, I found myself coming up with some statements of my own, that I basically am saying to myself.

We BECOME the guests we ALLOW,

in our minds,

what will you choose?

We do have that choice!

Refuse anything else and blast your freakin’ soul with Gods wealth and power, as Tony says

don’t let any poison take residence in that mind of yours,

no negativities are gonna stay over in Gods house,

God made me and is me and is my mind also,

so my mind is Gods house,

who are gonna be the guests I allow to visit and stay at Gods house?

Remember the strangest secret by Earl Nightingale…’we become what we think about, most of the time’,

and Napoleon Hill, quoting Andrew Carnegie:

‘It must have been the greatest of all Gods gifts to man, the power to take possession of our own mind and direct it towards whichever ends we desire’.

And the other inspirational quote from the video above:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
