WatchMojo.com calls Rudy the best sports inspirational movie ever, because of one special message, and a true life example of living the life you want through Determination, and in their words, “Sheer, unadulterated human spirit.”
Some of my favorite quotes from the movie express the key lessons in the Master Key System, by Charles Haanel, that we are studying in the Master Key Experience course. “Chasing a stupid dream causes nothing but you and everyone around heartache.” I know I’ve heard this too often in my life as people criticize my efforts to be me, instead of becoming someone they want me to be, just like Rudy. I love Rudy’s response, “They always told me I couldn’t. I believed what they said. I don’t want to do that anymore.” Great words to live by.
Other great wisdom from the movie:
“Having dreams is what makes life tolerable.”
“The problem with dreamers is they usually are not doers.”
“You must be fully aware of the sacrifices you’re gonna have to make.”
“In this lifetime, you don’t have to prove nothing to nobody except yourself.”
This was the terrific advice Rudy got from those who really encouraged him to succeed, and advice, I believe, that’s worth paying attention to. The secret components of Rudy’s success? Those are the four habits of persistence, as Mark and Davene J are teaching in the course … have a Definite Major Purpose, clearly detailed in your mind; have a Plan of Action on how you’re going to make it happen; keep a Positive Mental Attitude as you progress; and enlist a MasterMind Alliance to support and help you on your journey.
The movie trailer itself summed up this movie nicely for me, “Sometimes a winner is a dreamer who just won’t quit.” These quotes are going down as a daily affirmation on my list of cards.
Find your bliss too and make your dreams come true, like Rudy did. Adopt the four habits and watch it unfold. I fully believe it will be worth it!
