The Rock is Both Inspired and Motivated by ‘Black Panther’
Sometimes, it seems almost impossible to find motivation on a lazy Sunday morning. That’s especially true when it comes to hitting the gym. We aren’t even talking those wild Saturday nights that leave you with a hangover. We could (and often do) sit at home with a good movie on Saturday night and maybe one glass of wine (or a Moscow Mule) and we still don’t want to sweat it out the next morning.
However, it has to be done and there’s always motivation to be found. Just ask Dwayne Johnson.
We all need that friend and that ‘thing’ to make us want to be the very best version of ourselves. For Johnson, that’s Black Panther’s overwhelming success at the box office!
In addition, he noted his daughters and his ‘lady’ at home for being incredible and strong women and if that’s not one of the sweetest sentiments ever.
‘Its just one of those Sundays where you’re fatigued, you’re tired, the work you handled all week, you’ve been taking care of your relationships, handling your business, taking care of your babies, taking care of your family. But its leg day. Its Sunday and you got to push through and you go to kick that ass you got to finish the week strong because you start it all over again tomorrow. So I woke up thinking, ‘Okay, what’s my inspiration?’ And I need a little bit of motivation and I’m thinking and bang, I’m thinking about my daughters. Then I’m thinking about my lady at home who’s carrying my third daughter. Hardest job in the world is being a mama. Then I think about the things that I need to accomplish.’
There has never been any doubt that Johnson is incredibly passionate and it’s encouraging as fans to see what he uses to push himself to go farther. So we’re taking after him this week and doing what we love, loving what we do, and finding motivation in everything around us.
You can see both Black Panther and Jumanji in theaters now.
