I think it is fair to say that perhaps the best business lessons of our time were not taught by Rocky Balboa however I came across this courtesy of @msuster and his blog Both Sides of The Table (

For all entrepreneurs, startups and business folks this is an important lesson to remember. Mistakes are going to be made and that is good. Failures will be had and those are learning experiences. It is what you do after you have been hit that is important. There is no such thing as an overnight success, ask anyone who you think is one to tell you their story and I think they will tell you....

"It ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how many hits you can take"

    Frankly, I'm getting tired of all these sideline consultants, advisors and recently converted MBA/CFA start up gurus and their suck it up/fail quick/grow cojones advice. Hey, get off the sidelines and get in the game you bunch of white collar henchmen.

  2. Fair enough but this piece in particular was recommended by Mark Suster who has been in the trenches, off the sidelines and won the game on more than one occassion.
