Early on in the movie Rudy was explaining to Father Cavanaugh that his family, his friends and everyone that was important to him told him he could only stay in town and work for the local steel foundry. As he continued this conversation he said something that really stood out.
Rudy said, "I don't want to listen to them anymore."
Now think about your life, think about what you have accomplished thus far. Are you living up to your standards or by standards that others have placed on you?
If you grew up in an average household you have heard the word 'no' almost 150,000 times. You have also heard the word 'yes' or you can do it about 5,000 times. We have all been placed with restrictions on what we can do since we were little children and most people don't even realize it!
