Tip#199: You'll Meet The Right People At The Right Time – That Thing You Do!

No matter where you are in your life or career remember there are always helpful people along your journey.

I am astounded that I've written almost 200 tips on this blog. This blog has been an amazing journey for the past 2 years and has connected me with people all over the world. My online story of my career transition into being a world-class motivator has been inspiring others to follow their own passions and dreams.

At times the journey has been difficult but looking back I can see how magical it's been because there was always someone I met at the right place and the right time to help me along the path I was compelled to take.

That Thing You Do!

The movie That Thing You Do! celebrates the journey of career success when one follows a passion. Written and directed by Tom Hanks it tells the story of Guy Patterson working at his family appliance store in the 60's. He has a passion for jazz drumming and plays secretly at night.

Guy's journey unfolds when he is asked to play drums for one rock and roll song in a friend's band. He adds his personal touch to the song and it becomes an instant success at a high school competition. That success cascades into attracting the right people who help the band move forward to more successes.

Guy becomes the key for attracting the right person to help them record the song. This then attracts the right manager to get the band playing on the radio and to bigger live audiences.

Eventually that manager connects them to a major label manager played by Tom Hanks. The synchronicities of meeting the right people at the right time in movies like this can happen in real life too.

Relationships Accelerate You Forward

The movie was like a mirror for my own journey especially during the 2 years of writing this blog. I have documented many synchronistic encounters with individuals that came into my life to accelerate me forwards.

There are always earth angels along your path waiting to help you move forward. Do your best to recognize the help that come to you.

And remember relationships are all about how people can help each other. It is a two-way street. So stay passionate and optimistic about your career and life and that positive energy will magnetize the right person to help take you to the next level!

Hi Motivational man.

You always brighten my day. I am now on the list to supply teaching with the Toronto District School Board as I just received my employee number. Isn't that Great?

You have been my piller of hope and strength through it all.

Have a great day.

One of the most under-rated movies around! I have seen it about 3 times! A MUST.

I've definitely noticed that the right people come into our lives at the right time. Sometimes I don't recognize it at the time but always when I look back, I can see why.

Not only do the right people come into your life at the right time but sometimes the right information comes along... sometimes in a blog post!

Thank you, Emmanuel, for being one of my angels.
