Those that follow this character, look up to him as a inspiration to “Never Quit”. Overcoming, what seems to be impossible, going against all odds and coming through. He goes through physical and mental pain to achieve his goal. We ALL KNOW THE STORY. Rocky, Rocky, Rocky….
So what else can we learn from the Rocky character? How about being a better father, hmmm, interest peaked?
Being Involved: In the first Rocky, he walked a girl home from the local hang out to keep her away from the “Riff Raff” and on the way home, telling her “You hang out with nice people, you get nice friends, understand, you hand out with smart people, you get smart”. Be involved with your children. They will trust you and you will be able to help and guide them (as much as you can) to hang with the right people and be the right kind of person.
Be a Good Example: When Rocky fought Apollo, of course he wanted to be champion but there was more than what was on the surface…he wanted to prove that he wasn’t a bum. He wanted to show someone that he was “Someone”, someone for people to look up to. That’s you job, be someone that your child can look up to.
Encouragement: In one of the Rockys he said “I’ll have to do the best I can”. Be there for your children and encourage them to do the best they can in all circumstances, cheering for them at big events.
Yo Adrian: Believing in your children is huge. In Rocky, he had Adrian, who at times may have had her doubts, was his support system and was with him in the good times and the bad. It’s tough for anyone to believe in themselves if no one believes in them.
Blessings Are All Around: Rocky stated “You may think you have nothing, but it’s not true”. Children (and adults) want new things all the time. Sometimes (we) they need to be reminded of what blessings they already have.
Let The Past Be The Past: In Rocky III, after a beating Rocky took from Clubber Lang, he started training with Apollo. If you’ve seen it, you know that he kept reflecting back on what happened on that day. It was destroying him. We have to encourage our children to learn from the past and not dwell on it.
The Battle Of Life: All the Rocky movies show a montage of training, getting ready for that battle. Running, chopping wood, catching a chicken LOL, pull ups, sparring, stretching, etc… We must let our children train for life, expand their abilities, prepare for tests, spiritual growth and life skills. Helping them gain self confidence and determination to succeed.
Path For Victory: There is a cool thing about kids, they just do things. It’s neat. BUT, at some point in time, they have to learn that there must be a plan for success. In Rocky IV, he moved to Russia to a desolate place in the middle of the country in the dead of winter. There was a reason – he knew what he had to do and what lengths he had to take to succeed. Now, that being a bit extreme in most cases, we must teach our children how to plan for success.
Going The Distance: In all the Rocky movies, Rocky goes the distance, winning in the end. Just like boxing, going the distance, means – no matter how hard you get hit, no matter what stands in the way, no matter how many times you get knocked down…YOU GET BACK UP and finish what you set out to do. This is something that we can teach our children, life is hard and will kick our butts. We can help them get up and push through to VICTORY.
