The Rock took to Instagram today to post an inspirational message to fans:

therockFunny how things come back full circle.
When I was 14 me and family were evicted from our 1 bedroom efficiency and forced to leave the state of Hawaii.
At that time I made a promise to myself to do everything I could to work extremely hard to make sure we never see another eviction notice again. The only action I could take as a 14yr old punk kid was go straight to the YMCA and hit the iron. At that time all my heroes were big strong dudes who were successful – Eastwood, Arnold, NFL players and Pro Wrestling icons.
That’s why it was so cool for me to go back to the YMCA this past week, train like an animal and remember where it all started for me.
Funny thing I realized as I was training that I still wake up every morning at 4am to train with the mindset that “the wolf is always scratchin’ at my door” and that f*cker is delivering another eviction notice.
One day I’ll get the proper psychiatric therapy I need ;), but until then let’s always be hungry, humble and always be the hardest workers in the room.
