Tip#283: The Power of Loving Food – Julie & Julia
When you choose to follow your passions the world will be compelled to pay attention!
As you know from this blog I have a huge passion for movies. I also have a blissful passion for food which I have blogged about many times before (see tip#231: Foodgasms = Positive Energy).
So I am excited to share a new video I've produced that will activate your positive emotional energy just from the sight of the tantalizing photos of food. Click here to see
Recently I saw an inspiring movie that combined 3 of my passions: movies, food and writing this blog. And it was an extra treat because I went to see it at a morning matinee with several other food-lover friends of mine. We would all share "foodgasmic" groans of delight at the sight of all the deliciousness on the screen!
Julie & Julia
The film Julie & Julia is based on 2 biographies of blogger Julie Powell and Julia Child author of the best-seller Mastering The Art of French Cooking. Both stories intertwine to show the journeys of two women who follow their passions for food and the joys and challenges they experienced.
If you love food you will love how your positive emotional energy will flow throughout this movie! It is also one of the best motivating movie examples for anyone who wants to live a fulfilling life doing what they love and having a successful career from it.
You will be inspired by Julia Child, played by Meryl Streep, who's infectious, enthusiastic spirit brought joy to the local Parisian food cart owners while living in France. And you will be motivated to persevere in your own dreams when you watch Julie Powell, played by Amy Adams, stay committed to her goal to blog for 365 days about her cooking 524 recipes from Child's book.
This movie moved me deeply as there were several parallels of the 2 stories for my own life and career journey. There are so many other motivating messages that if you are compelled to see this movie your own journey will be RE-ENERGIZED by the life lessons Julie & Julia is brimming with.
So remember that following your passion can fill you with positive emotional energy. That positive energy can feed your self-confidence. Be conscious of whatever you love or love doing because it is the source of all the joy you want in your life AND career.
Following your heart's desire creates a cascade of benefits that will pump up your soul and create a magnetic energy to attract more positivity into your life. People will be drawn to your positive energy. The world always pays attention when you embrace and take action with what you love!
