Deliver a Green Knockout Punch: How Rocky Balboa Inspires Us to Win
by Mickey Z.
Activism is a marathon, not a sprint. It's a 15-round heavyweight brawl with ebbs and flows and to win, you'll need endurance, courage, and maybe even a little cockeyed optimism to knock out potent planetary polluters like Corporate America and the U.S. Department of Defense.

 
 
If you find yourself on the canvas with the referee counting, heed the words of a man who knows what it's like to be the underdog, Rocky Balboa:

"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 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 how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done."
 
 
It's all about being willing to change and then going the distance.
