The end is near and then again…I was absent. On day 9 meeting was the second time that I was absent. My heart is eager to attend but my physical being has important thing to do. Day 9 is the 2nd remaining day of our training.
Anyways, even if I was absent, I need to gathered resources and do research on what was the activities on that day are all about. I asked my classmates about the topics and since I didn’t heard the lecture I do internet research and ask further from classmates so I could fully understand.
So this was I got info from my classmate. They started a story about the man and as usual a story of “rag to rich” person. He started nothing during his early days. He ended as a homeless man, he slept in the streets, unable to pay a rent or to buy a food. There is instances that he sold his dog to the liquor store because he can’t feed it anymore. This man is separated from his wife. Weeks later, he saw a boxing a match of Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner and through that match he had an inspiration to write a script. He was able to write a script within 20 hours and someone made an interest of his script. He got an offer for $125,000 for the script but he rejected because he want to play the role of the main character of the movie. That is his ambition to be an actor on a movie scene. The movie named as Rocky Balboa. The movie made it success and that man is no other than Sylverster Stallone in real life. Because of his fortune he was able to buy his dog again for a higher price. The best quote of Sylverster Stallone is “I believe there’s an inner power that makes winners or losers. And the winners are the ones who really listen to the truth of their hearts.” and also this one “I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear to wake me up and get going, rather than retreat.”
What they tackled in day 9 was finding blogs. Our instructor directed them to look for blog that is relevance to the topic that is going to be shared in the social media. Instructor gave some tips how to write an article on our own and to have a unique content.
That was it and everybody was busy finding blog except me. HAHA.
