Inspiration With Movies

>> Tuesday

ONE OF the most wonderful positive emotions you can experience is inspiration. That is, having a goal, feeling that you can accomplish it, and feeling excited about the prospect.

A good way to feel inspired is to watch a movie, especially a true story, about someone overcoming obstacles to accomplish an important goal.

When you're watching a movie like this, you can experience it as a metaphor for your own life. You can imagine that the obstacles the hero in the movie overcomes are like the obstacles you will overcome.

And it can help you put your own difficulties in perspective. You have obstacles to overcome, and of course they loom large. Sometimes they may seem insurmountable. But when you see a true story of someone overcoming much more intimidating obstacles, it puts your own in perspective. It makes your goal seem more attainable. It makes you feel that if they can overcome those obstacles, surely you can overcome yours. That's partly what makes these movies inspiring.

Once such movie is Lorenzo's Oil. It's a true story about two parents overcoming tremendous obstacles to accomplish the goal of keeping their son alive. Very powerful.

Other true, inspiring movies I recommend are: Rudy, October Sky, Door to Door, and Antwone Fisher. Watching inspiring movies is a relaxing way to lift your spirits.

Read the story of Lorenzo's Oil.

Take Action: Move Your Money

WHEN SOMETHING bothers you, if you can do anything about it, your mood is likely to rise. Many people are justifiably angry at the fatcats who made the decisions that caused The Great Recession but who personally made enormous profits in the process, and that large banks accepted bailout money from taxpayers but used it only to further their own interests, often at the expense of taxpayers.

But the "Move Your Money" movement is promoting something that each of us can DO about it: Move your money from the guilty banks to local banks and credit unions. Taking such a constructive action will improve your mood. You'll feel better knowing you have done something about the injustice.

For more information (including an easy way to find community banks), go to Move Your Money.

Watch the video below. It is 4 minutes and 11 seconds long. And please share it with others (another constructive action you can take).
