A Great Message From Nike

The other day I was working at my computer while half tuning in to a recap of the olympics. A commercial came on and captured my attention to the fullest. I like everything about this commercial, the song, the lyrics, the MESSAGE being sent to the viewer. I love how it shoots each athlete in many steps of practice (as we’ve all been there).

The ad is for Nike and the song  The Hours – “Ali In The Jungle” 
It says: 

“It’s, not, how you start, it’s how you finish.
And it’s, not, where you’re from, it’s where you’re at.
Everybody gets knocked down,
Everybody gets knocked down,
How quick are you gonna get up?!
Just how are you gonna get up?!”

Check it out for yourself. I hope it inspires you too as we can all relate with our own sport, goal or life journey! We train, practice, put blood, sweat and tears into something. We will stumble and probably even fall a time or two or three. But get back up! Keep training! Keep fighting for your goal no matter what the goal may be…because the internal REWARD when you achieve is BIG!
