  • You can write everything down if you want to,

  • be brave enough

  • to write every one of your goals down, but I'm gonna tell you something.

  • Life's going to hit you in your mouth and you gotta do me a huge favor,

  • your why has to be greater

  • than that knockdown. And I love it.

  • Buster Douglas got knocked out.

  • Nobody ever got knocked out by Mike Tyson

  • and ever got back up.

  • It was almost a ten count,

  • he was stumbling

  • ...4

  • 3

  • 2

  • 1! And, ding, ding, ding,

  • saved by the bell.

  • He goes to his corner, and the whole world is like 'yep that's it'.

  • Once he comes back out, that's it,

  • Mike is gonna just hammer him.

  • And exactly that,

  • Mike Tyson came out like - I got him.

  • I got this kid up against the rope.

  • Listen to me, many of you right now,

  • lives got you up against the rope.

  • You can't give up, you can't give in.

  • Listen to me, if it was easy everybody would do it.

  • And if lives got you backed up,

  • I need you to do it, Buster Douglas did.

  • Buster Douglas start fighting back!

  • The world was shocked!

  • Goliath has been knocked down, "what happened?"

  • And they went to Buster Douglas,

  • and they asked Buster Douglas simply like, "what happened?"

  • And Buster Douglas said, "Listen to me,

  • it's really simple. Before my mother died,

  • she told the whole world

  • that I was going to beat Mike Tyson."

  • "And two days before the fight, my mother died."

  • Buster Douglas had...he had a decision to make.

  • When his mother died,

  • he can die with his mother

  • or made a decision,

  • 'I can wake up,

  • and I can live for Mom'

  • and he knocked Mike Tyson out.

  • Simply because his why was greater than that punch.

  • His why was greater than defeat.

  • His why was greater than his triumph and his tribulation.

  • And I'm telling you.

  • If you don't know what your why is

  • and your why isn't strong,

  • you will get knocked down every single day!

You can write everything down if you want to,
