synchronicity occurred the same day I posted 4 movie recommendations to help you "Let Go of What You Think You Know" in tip#491. Career and life coach, Day Merrill, called me about facilitating more movie nights at Toronto's St. Andrew's United Church screening room (see tip#451). Her first recommendation surprised me!
She recommended Regarding Henry and realized that was another amazing film that demonstrates radically transforming one's mindset for a better life. I then began to think of more excellent films to recommend to inspire the need to rewrite one's mindset or "reboot" a career or life path.
Here are 4 movie recommendations:
Eat Pray Love 2010
After losing her money, home and husband, a woman (Julia Roberts) embarks on a soul-searching journey to Italy, India and Bali. When in Bali she learns to meditate and by emptying her mind would be the key to rebuilding positive perceptions of herself and her relationships in love.
The Matrix 1999
A young man (Keanu Reeves) is shown that the world he is living in is an illusion and is actually a computer construct. This shatters his mindset of what "he thinks he knows" and learns how to adapt to the truth around him. He soon realizes his own potential and incredible strengths and gifts.
A general manager of a baseball team (Brad Pitt) realizes he needed to rewrite the process of recruiting players in order to rebuild his decimated team. He enlists a talented analyst (Jonah Hill) who has unique ability to "think outside the box" and creates stunning success with a new, unusual team.
Regarding Henry 1991
A cold-heart lawyer (Harrison Ford) experiences a dramatic life change after getting shot in a store robbery. He is reduced to having to re-learn how to walk and talk again and all the basics in living he took for granted. He ends up rebooting his compassion and loving side towards his family.
These are all powerful movies that can help inspire you to change your destructive habits of thinking. Sometimes it takes drastic life changes to help you let go of these habits. It may take weeks, months or even years to reboot your life. If you are on this path then let movie heroes inspire you along the way. Let their courage, perseverance and indestructible optimism guide you!
