It ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done”

   Movies are an excellent source of inspiration. Yes you heard it right parents. Let your kids watch movies, all day long! Just kidding. But seriously though; movies are good. Let me tell you a very interesting story to illustrate my point.
  This is the story of Judy Hopps; a little girl with big aspirations to become a police officer one day. Judy lived in a quaint little town with her parents and her two hundred and seventy five brothers and sisters. Judy was a rabbit. She wanted to be a police officer with the Zootopia Police Department. But the road to her journey was filled with obstacles; and hippos and rhinos and even bigger animals waiting to kick her ass. "Go home fuzzy bunny" "You're dead carrot-face" "You're dead fluff-butt" they'd say. But she believed that in Zootopia, anyone could be anything. She got knocked down but refused to be let down, and fought her way up the ladder and finally became the first bunny officer in Zootopia.
  But that's where her troubles began. She was made a meter-maid who just issued parking tickets for a living. She wasn't even a real cop. But she refused to give up on her dreams and her tenacity and persistence led her to solve a case in 48 hours with the help a thug fox; a case the entire ZPD couldn't crack. She was more than just a carrot-farming bunny with a fluffy butt.
   She proved to all, that Zootopia was a place where anyone could be anything. A supposedly sly and thug fox was now a brave and honest police officer; a fat elephant was an experienced Yogi with an enviably flexible body; a sloth was actually a street-racer(talk about speed); for a supposedly ugly and disproportionate giraffe, Gazelle was a surprisingly sexy popstar, the whole Zootopia was in love with; Clawhauser- a fat, slow and gluttonish leopard, posed danger only to donuts and sweets instead of being a bloodthirsty predator.
   What I'm trying to prove here people, is that limiting beliefs are just nasty stereotypes waiting to be kicked in the face.
   Lifting heavy weights is not for women. Men cannot cook, cooking is for women. Sport is not for the cripple. The dark-skinned aren't beautiful. The ramp is only for the Whites. Before you call me a judgemental jerk let me tell you, I didn't say all this. These were just a few of the countless stereotypes that plagued the minds of people at some time. While they sound completely ridiculous now, they were considered gospel truths once.
   This is a world of firsts and opportunities. The world has enough for everyone. You can be anything you want. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. The naysayers will discourage you. Go deaf to their opinions. It always seems preposterous until it's done. I'd like to say to you, what Judy Hopps said to the people of Zootopia,
"Real life is more than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. But we have to try. I implore you. TRY. Try to make the world a better place. Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you."
  Another thing that kept Judy going was a song by Shakira. What better than a song, to end an inspirational post.
   "I messed up tonight,
     I lost another fight.
     I still mess up but I'll just start again,
     I keep falling down
     I keep on hitting the ground
     I always get up to see what's next...."
                              -Try everything by Shakira
    P.S.- Listen to the song on Youtube or wherever. It's the best thing you'll hear today. I promise!
