Tip#550: Embody the Strengths of Others - The Intouchables

I always strive to be a better person and one area is to be more calm assertive in all my communications with people. That's why I am inspired by movie heroes like Daniel Craig's James Bond or TV show characters like Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Both of them have strong, confident qualities I want to embody.

With this goal in mind I believe I've manifested people in my life that already embody a calm assertive quality which I am learning to bring out in myself. It certainly takes practice but when the other person knows I am learning from them then they can help in the transformation. And in return they often learn to improve something about themselves from my strengths!

The Intouchables (2011)

The comedy drama The Intouchables (French that translates as Untouchable) is a French film about the unexpected friendship between Philippe (Fran├žois Cluzet), a wealthy tetraplegic, and Driss (Omar Sy), a young homeless man, hired as his personal caregiver. Philippe could have hired a much more experienced caregiver but he saw something he needed most from Driss.

Driss has street smarts and says things the way they are with no social filters. His authentic, assertive self is what boosts Philippe’s positive emotional energy and zest for life again. Driss even helps him in his romantic life! In return Philippe helps educate Driss on appreciating fine arts, classical music and what it’s like to live in luxury.

This feel-good film is currently a box office hit and cultural phenomenon in France and I hope it’s because of its overflowing motivational value. People can be inspired to learning to be a better person from others whether they are physically challenged or a homeless person.

Be open to who your teachers in life come from. If you resonate with certain movie heroes or TV show characters ask yourself if they represent strengths you wish to embody. Believe you already have the inner strengths you need and there will be someone to come into your life and help you be your best!
