Motivational Movie Speeches

Rocky Balboa To his Son

You ain’t gonna believe this, but you used to fit right here.

I’d hold you up to say to your mother, “This kid’s gonna be 

the best kid in the world. This kid’s gonna be somebody 

better than anybody I ever knew.” And you grew up good 

and wonderful. It was great just watching you, every day was 

like a privilige. Then the time come for you to be your own 

man and take on the world, and you did. But somewhere 

along the line, you changed. You stopped being you. You 

let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no 

good. And when things got hard, you started looking for 

something to blame, like a big shadow. Let me 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 ya hit. 

It’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. 

How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s 

how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth 

then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be 

willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers 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 

than that! I’m always gonna love you no matter what. No 

matter what happens.

You’re my son and you’re my blood. You’re the best thing in 

my life. But until you start believing in yourself, ya ain’t 

gonna have a life. Don’t forget to visit your mother
