Today is the kind of day that makes me wonder if I will ever become a champion in the world of stand-up comedy. It’s a matter of motivation. I feel like I’m going to make it, because I’m putting pen to paper with no feelings of motivation whatsoever. I believe the true champions of any field manage to work whether they feel inspired or not. Granted, my ideas at this moment are garbage. I’m aware of that. Nevertheless, I’m plodding forth.

Here is a little quote from Rocky Balboa that is helpful for a day like today:

The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!
