There are few who have not heard of Sylvester Stallone.
But, the famous Rocky has a touching life story published by Nammatv Channel and collected more than 100,000 likes and 70,000 shares ever since. It goes like this: “This is one of Sylvester Stallone’s most salient stories in Hollywood, one of the biggest and most famous American film stars”.
Once he was an actor who fought for success in every definition. At some point, he was so much money that he stole jewelry from his wife and sold it. The situation was so bad that he even ended up as a homeless. He was in New York’s bus station for three days, could not pay rent or buy food. The worst moment in his life was when he tried to sell his dog in the alcohol store to any stranger. He had no more money to feed him. He sold it for $ 25. And Otamo went out weeping.
Two weeks later he saw a boxing match between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner, and it inspired him to write a script for the famous ‘Rocky’. He wrote a scenario for 20 hours! He tried selling it and got $ 125,000 for him. But he had one request. He wanted to play the main role in the movie. He wanted to be Rocky. But the studio said NO. They wanted the right star. They told him to ‘look and talk funny’. He went along with this scenario. A few weeks later, they offered him $ 250,000 for the script. She refused. They offered him $ 350,000. She refused. They wanted his film. But they did not want him. He said he could not. He had to be in this movie. After a while, the studio agreed, gave him $ 35,000 for the script and allowed him to play in the movie. The rest is history!
The film has won three Oscars, Best Film, Best Direction and Best Composition. He was even nominated for the best actor! The ‘Rocky’ movie is even included in the American National Film Register as one of the best of all time.
And do you know what Stallone first bought when he got the money? The dog she sold. Yes, Stallone loved his dog so much that for three days he was standing by the store where he sold it, waiting for the man he sold it. The third day he saw him come with his dog. He explained why he sold the dog and begged him to get him back. The man refused. Stallone offered him $ 100. The man refused. He offered $ 500. The man refused. Yes, he also rejected $ 1,000. And, believe it or not, Stallone had to pay $ 15,000 for a dog he sold for $ 25. But he finally got it back! Today she is the same Stallone who slept on the street and sold her dog because she could not feed her, one of the greatest movie stars ever walking on Earth. Being without money is bad. Very bad. Have you ever had your dream? Divan san? But you were without money and could not have realized it? Too little to do something? Too little to achieve something? Damn! And I’ve been in that position a lot of times!
Being without money is bad. Very bad. Have you ever had your dream? Nice dream? But you were without money and could not have realized it? Too little to do something? Too little to achieve something? Damn! And I’ve been in that position a lot of times! Life is hard. Options will pass by you because you are none. People will want what you did, but not you. The world is cruel. If you are not already famous, rich or ‘s connections’, it will be difficult for you. They’ll shut you down. People will hurt your ideas and ruin your hopes. You will be persistent. And nothing will happen. And then you will be without hope. And without money. Damn without money. You will do strange jobs to survive. You will not have money for food. And yes, you might sleep on the street. Sometimes it happens. Yeah, it’s happening. But do not ever let them destroy your dreams. Whatever happens, keep dreaming. When they kill your hope, keep dreaming. When they refuse you, continue to dream. When they say no chance, keep dreaming. No one knows what you are capable of except yourself! People will judge you according to what you look like. And according to what you have. But please, keep on fighting! Keep fighting for your place in history. Fight for your glory. Never give up! If that means you sell your own clothes and sleep with the dogs, THAT IS OFFICE! But as long as you live, your story is not over. Trust me. Keep fighting. Keep dreaming and hope “.
