Tip#361: There Are Heroes Around You, Part 1 – Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
I recently gave a keynote on Movies That Motivate for the Arthritis Society Fundraiser here in Toronto. It was an honour because I was also there to support the event coordinator, Lynn Manwar who is a good friend AND a true-life hero.
Lynn has faced and overcome many health challenges over the years. At age 24 she overcame thyroid cancer, age 30 arthritis and recently breast surgery. Despite all this adversity she remains so positive, resilient and brimming with an optimistic joy for life.
Lynn also appeared on the TV series, Style By Jury in which she received a full makeover. She showed that making over your physical appearance goes hand in hand with improving your self-esteem and self-confidence. See the episode: Click here
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time 2010
The movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is based on a video game and features 2 heroes that inspire. Prince Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) is unstoppable in discovering the truth to his father's murder and in bringing his family back together again.
The other hero is Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) who demonstrates her strength through her perseverance and persistence in fulfilling her destiny to protect a magical dagger. It is Tamina's strong will, resilience and tenacity that mirrors real-life heroes like my friend Lynn that can inspire you to overcome your own challenges with confidence.
There are heroes all around you whether they are fantastical movie heroes or real-life heroes. They are there to mirror your own hidden strengths and courage. They are there to help you build a proactive, optimistic mindset. Identify all your heroes and let their strengths become your own!
