So I'm mindlessly scrolling down through my facebook feed (yes, I'm guilty of this too - don't act like you don't do it). When all of a sudden a short video grabs my attention.
It's one of those motivational videos. You know the type.
A gravel pit voice, over a pumping backing track packed wth cliches and quick editing. But this one was different. It was a video by Erik Kestner as a Rocky tribute. Now if you haven't seen any of the Rocky movies, firstly, what are you doing even reading this blog? Seriously. Secondly, the rest of this post is probably going to make no sense to you in any way whatsoever. But here goes, what I am leading up to is this.
There was a scene between Paulie and Rocky wich stood out for me in it's simplicity.
Paulie: What? You haven't peaked yet?
Rocky: I don't know. There's still some stuff left down in the basement.
So my question to you is, What is it that you still have left down in the basement? What is it that you still want to do, what dream do you still want to achieve? What is it that you still want to try? Have you got some more left in you, and not ready to give up just yet?
In 2016, rather than fishing for that new goal, or reaching for that dream fresh out the box, why not take steps to go deep down, and see if you have anything else left in the basement and breathe some life into it.
Thanks Erik Kestner for putting the video together.
