Black Panther is currently out there making all kinds of money, and changing lives in the process. The latest Marvel Studios film has raked in over $700 million worldwide, making its mark on the long-running Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. Though while some filmmakers and actors out there are more than willing to give a pat on the back while continuing on with business usual.

It’s probably no surprise that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson isn’t one of those people. Sure, he’ll congratulate, but he’s more than willing to use that as internal motivation for doing even better. In a new Instagram post from the actor, he vlogs himself from the gym, discussing that Sunday fatigue, and finding his motivation. Here’s what he had to say:

“Its just one of those Sundays where you’re fatigued, you’re tired, the work you handled all week, you’ve been taking care of your relationships, handling your business, taking care of your babies, taking care of your family. But its leg day. Its Sunday and you got to push through and you go to kick that ass you got to finish the week strong because you start it all over again tomorrow. So I woke up thinking, ‘Okay, what’s my inspiration?’ And I need a little bit of motivation and I’m thinking and bang, I’m thinking about my daughters. Then I’m thinking about my lady at home who’s carrying my third daughter. Hardest job in the world is being a mama. Then I think about the things that I need to accomplish…but then I think about Black Panther kicking the s**t out of Jumanji at the box office. That’s all the motivation I need. That’s it. So Wakanda Forever.”

Johnson went on to congratulate all involved with Black Panther, but clearly he’s not too thrilled with it steamrolling Jumanji (though Jumanji nearly reaching $1 billion is no small feat). Rest assured, he’ll be using that as a means to keep himself motivated for the journey ahead. Between Skyscraper and Rampage, he certainly has a couple contenders for box office successes.
