So, I’m writing my first screen play based on a true story from my soccer coaching experience. As I’m finishing the story line, it made me realize, as we go through life, we are all writing our own movie.
Now, think about that for a moment. Each one of our lives is a “true story” movie. But the best part is, we get to write our own script.
We all experience conflicts, self-doubt, tragedy and defeats, but we also feel the emotions of rewards, victory, conquering and self-confidence.
As of today, your storyline is based on all those experiences. I hope everyone is living a fairy-tale life, but there is the reality of being human.
You can’t change past decisions — good or bad. You might be out of shape, excessively overweight, made poor income choices, in a bad relationship along with destructive habits.
The good news is your story is still under construction. How do you want your movie to end?
Go through your day like a movie camera is following you around capturing all your kindness, good deeds, hard work and determination.
Think of all your actions, posture, mannerisms and facial expressions projected onto a movie screen. How would this change your daily life? How much more would you accomplish? How many more goals would be achieved? And most importantly, how much better would you treat people?
Right now, you should start hearing the “Rocky” movie theme song playing in your head. You should be feeling the excitement in your body and soul knowing that your life is changing at this moment.
It’s time to take on the enemy and self-demons and be the hero in your movie. The battle has started and you’re fighting to conquer all that crosses your path. Nothing can stop you from accomplishing your goals, your destiny, and the life you’re meant to have.
Today your movie script has taken a new direction in which you’re smashing defeat.
We should all ride into the sunset knowing we’ve done our best, done good will and left this world a much better place.
