Don’t get knocked the f*ck out…

Watched Rocky III the other day with Bam Bam Biscuit, and just when we got to the climax of the movie, my 7 year old Yoda decided to inject his wisdom…

“Daddy, Daddy!!!! I watched this part in the preview, this is when Rocky steals Clubber Lanie’s power!!!!”

The exact moment Bam Bam was referring to was toward the very end of the fight after Rocky has already been knocked down several times… Clubber was once again playing pepper with Rocky’s face.

Yet Rocky then began blocking a few of the punches and baited Clubber by telling him, “harder, harder, hit me HARDER.” Clubber obliged and unleashed absolutely EVERYTHING he had…

A few blocks and a couple shifty moves later, Rocky turned into the super hero we all got to know and love by completely CLOBBERING Clubber, knocking him to the canvas and winning back the belt…

“See Daddy, I told you!!!! He stole his power by telling him to hit harder.”

Holy shit, the kid was right…

In the fight of life, there are so many times when we give it everything we have and go for the knockout punch…

Often times, just like Clubber, we are even baited into these scenarios. The problem is that we are forced off of our game plan and let the ego take over. We then begin to attempt things that we are not capable of doing…

Ultimately, we run out of gas and are left dazed and confused trying to figure out what just happened. 🤔

Then…

We get knocked the f*ck out. 👊

Bottom line… Don’t let anybody steal your POWER.
