You know the movie Rocky, I’m sure. You know Sylvester Stallone. But do you know how the film and actor got their start? Did you know that Stallone actually had such little money that he had to sell his dog for $25? The heartbreaking tale has a well-known happy ending (Stallone is a famous actor, producer, and director now of course) but the story is an important one.
In the face of adversity, Stallone worked past some tough things that would normally stand in the way of just about anyone. Partial paralysis, slurred speech, and more. The compiled image below summarizes his amazing story, so I thought I’d share it with the BoredBoard readers in hopes that it inspires you to face adversity head-on and work your tail off until you achieve your dreams.
Whether you’re a Sylvester Stallone fan or not, this visual is a must-see. Enjoy.
Sylvester Stallone was a man that just refused to give up, so it makes sense he wrote and starred in a movie with that exact same theme. Let Sylvester inspire you; if you want something badly enough, you can make good things happen. You just might have to endure some awful trials to get there, but you can do it. Share the truth behind Sylvester Stallone and Rocky with others.
