Watching Rocky is an experience that provides no shortage of inspiration. The italian stallion takes on the champ in a fight against all odds. We see the most classic montage in cinema accompanied by one of the most iconic pump up songs in existence, Gonna Fly Now. This is inspiration through awe, admiration and elevation. Awe, when he sprints up the steps in phily to throw his hands up in the air, looking out over the city. Admiration, when we see him push himself beyond his limits, improving dramatically through a fast paced montage. And elevation, when we see what kind a guy he is despite his vocation. He has strong morals.
