Tip#493: Find That Expert To Help You Succeed – Moneyball
SOLUTION: Get out of my own way!
So there. I've just put it out to the world of what I first announced in tip#458 about seeking a mentor. And yet I keep diverging and digressing from this goal. Thankfully movies are helping me with solutions. I watched the thought provoking film Revolver again (see tip#286) and it reminded me that I really must prevent the "ego voice" part of me from sabotaging my dreams and goals.
I also know my daily meditations (see tip#482) are helping me and I still believe making inward changes WILL result in my external success with my goals. Once again, with a calm mind, my true inner voice (not the "ego" voice) led me to another ideal movie to excite my spirit and help me persevere...
The movie Moneyball is based on a true story of general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) and his unique and controversial scouting methods he used with the baseball team the Oakland Athletics. The story shows that when Beane was faced with an impossible task of rebuilding his decimated team he discovered and hired the analytical talents of Peter Brand (Jonah Hill).
Beane was a visionary and together with Brand rewrote the process of scouting and drafting baseball players. They both met with extreme resistance from others and it was a long road to seeing any success. Ultimately, the Athletics set an American league record of 20 consecutive wins.
I was deeply inspired to see this story of a man faced with an impossible task and finding the solution working with someone with a unique expertise and talent. This film reminded me that my goal is similar and to do my best and focus on finding that business expert/mentor that can help me to the next level of my career.
Sometimes we have revelations of what we need most in our lives or careers and yet there is a part of ourselves that fears taking the next step. It is that other part of ourselves we must tap into for achieving our goals. That part is filled with courage and willing to take risks. Tap into that part of yourself today!
