There are plenty of reasons to be absolutely in love with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. He's humble, he's funny, he's a great dad and an inspiration to competitive eaters everywhere. Oh, and it helps that he also happens to have a rockin' bod.
We love him so much there's a 99.999 percent chance he'll be our next president.
Now, thanks to a retro new Instagram post, we have yet another reason to be obsessed with The Rock. Just take a look at this amazing throwback:
If there's anything we know about The Rock, it's that he does everything to the extreme -- eating, working out, being adorable AF -- and this photo is no exception. In the caption, he wrote,
#PowerOfPerseverance. When you #ChaseYourGreatness and finally find it -- and you will. There's one very important thing we always gotta do. Pay respect and never lose sight of where you came from. We've all had our low moments, and I think we'd all agree we never want to go back there, but we gotta use our hard times of our past to motivate our future. Approximately 4 weeks after this picture was taken of me in the 1995 training camp for the CFL's Calgary Stampeders, I was cut from the team and sent home with $7 bucks in my pocket. It was a monumental moment for me, because it was then that I decided I could either continue to wallow in depression or pick myself back up forge ahead.
How's that for a Thursday afternoon pick-me-up?!? Get out there and persevere, kids, if only because The Rock said so.
