It hurts me to say it, but it’s true.
I’m even from the greater Philadelphia area.
Don’t be like Rocky Balboa.
He got his shot at the big time, and it’s true that he survived it—but he sustained some serious damage.
He has brain trauma, he almost went blind, his friend Paulie lost all of his money, and it took him years to muster up the courage to see his son.
It’s all very sexy in the movies.
But Rocky is a clumsy fighter and it took him two movies just to get the training he needed to be a more technical fighter.
We all know how the story goes, but what if something had gone wrong?
Just one half-inch could have flipped his life even more upside down.
So, the next time you are faced with a problem or an impossible challenge, you should consider working smarter and not harder.
Consider the odds and the consequences.
Hope is not a strategy.
Increasing your odds is a strategy.
