From Dave Victor, Real Estate Rockstar…
I really don’t watch sports. I mean, I would rather watch farming than baseball. I would rather watch paint dry than football. You get the point.
So, for a guy who isn’t really into watching sports, I really do love watching movies about characters who happen to be athletes. They truly have some of the best motivational speeches ever penned. I was watching one of my favorite speeches from a movie with Al Pacino, Any Given Sunday, where he states:
“You find out life’s a game of inches, so is football…The inches we need are everywhere around us. They're in every break of the game, every minute, every second… We claw with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know when add up all those inches, that's gonna make the difference between winning and losing! Between living and dying! I'll tell you this, in any fight it's the guy who’s willing to die who’s gonna win that inch. And I know, if I'm gonna have any life anymore, it's because I'm still willing to fight and die for that inch, because that's what living is, the six inches in front of your face.”
Man, if you haven’t seen it, YouTube that scene. The whole movie, actually, is worth the price of admission.
