Your Why Has To Be Greater

From Mateusz M, Transcript:

You can write anything down if you want to, be brave enough to write every one of your goals down, but I'm going to tell you something.  Life is going to hit you in your mouth and you gotta do me a huge favor, your why has to be greater than that knockdown.

Buster Douglas got knocked down. Nobody ever got knocked down by Mike Tyson and ever got back up.

It was almost a ten count, he was stumbling... 4... 3... 2... 1 [Ding Ding] saved by the bell. And goes to his corner, and the whole world is like 'yep that's it'. Once he comes back out, that's it, Mike is just gonna hammer him. And exactly that, Mike Tyson come out like - I got him. I got this kid up against to rope.

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

Listen to me, many of you right now, life's got you up against the rope. You can't give up, you can't give in. Listen to me, if it was be easy everybody would do it. And if life has you backed up, I need you to do it, what Buster Douglas did.

Buster Douglas start fighting back!

And the world was shocked! Goliath has been knocked down, "what happened?" And they went to Buster Douglas, and they asked Buster Douglas simply, "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 a decision to make. When his mother died, he could have died with his mother or make a decision, 'I can wake up... and I can live for mom' and he knocked Mike Tyson down. Simply because his why was greater than that punch. His why was greater than defeat! His why was greater than his and tribulation. And I'm telling you. 

If you don't know what your why is and your why isn't strong, your gonna get knocked down every single day!
