Look, I’m not a major tv buff – I hate watching the news because all of the negativity and then the media spin. Besides watching ‘Scooby Doo’, ‘The Wiggles’ and ‘Disney Pixar’ movies with the wife and daughter I on the rare occasion really enjoy a good movie.
I might watch a movie for the sake of the name, the stars and the buzz behind it but whether boring or not, I’m able to refocus my attention on the message of the movie or sympathise and empathise with the characters of the movie.
(NO MOVIE SPOILERS HERE!)
I recently finished watching movies such as ‘Ip Man 3’ (yes, very asian), ‘Hotel Transylvania’, ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’, ‘Jerry Maguire’, ‘Bee Movie’, ‘Finding Dory’ and the awesome ‘Interstellar’! From these movies I was able to imagine myself in the antagonist’s shoes and really connect with their character personality, thereby entering myself into the movie. Lessons such as family appreciation, not neglecting my wife, teamwork, startup stress, failures and the ‘time-space continuum’ just to name a few! I’ve gone to bed with the thoughts of these lessons and the characters who had to go through them to help me supercharge my drive, focus and work ethic. Movies definitely help me through a tough stressful time.
I’m a big reader of books, often devouring a good sized book within a few days to a week and in the books whatever genre they are, I use the power of visualisation to picture the situation or scene to help make it more real to me. This goes for any goals I have. I can easily visualise myself in the future with an achieved goal to help me GRIND, HUSTLE & FIGHT for its actual fulfillment. Visualisation is so important.
Next time you watch a movie, visualise yourself there in the scene and take whatever lesson or meaning from the movie and apply that to your own life. I hope this makes your movie experience so much more incredible.
If your day seems tough, visualise what would make you be fantastic and use that to drive you to improve yourself day by day. That can only be achieved with a plan.
Sorry folks. Dreamers stay asleep while doers get to work on their dreams!
