The Rock’s Inspiring MTV Awards Speech Is One That We All Should Take To Heart

Man, I love The Rock.

He’s the biggest movie star in the world, a former WWE superstar, and yet, he still continues to be this monster ball of positive energy, on a never-ending mission to infect the world with good. Not to mention, he’s a big tequila-drinking, Cody Jinks guy and I like other tequila-drinking Cody Jinks guys.

Anyways, the other night at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, The Rock accepted the 2019 Generation Award, and he did so as only he can… with unparalleled class and wisdom.

His acceptance speech is now going viral, and for good reason… he drops an important life lesson that every single one of us should take to heart.

“While yes, it’s important to be yourself – you’ve got to recognize the joy and the responsibility of bringing everybody with you. And you do that by being kind, by being compassionate, by being inclusive and straight up just being good to people because that matters.”

“When I was 15 years old, I heard a quote and I will never forget, and I bring it with me everywhere I go and it’s ingrained in my DNA. The quote is this: ‘It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.’ With that, I love you. I thank you. Drink your tequila. I will see you all down the road.”

Amen brother.
