Tip#237: When Positive Change Happens - The Day The Earth Stood Still

When crisis happens, like our economic downturn, we have the chance to make profound changes in how we each deal with disasters. We are given a chance to change the way we face problems.

Movies inspire me to see problems differently. And when it comes to negative reviews of certain movies I do my best not to listen to them. It relates to my previous blog entry, tip#236 where every person can see the same thing totally different from other people.

So when I finally see some of these unpopular films I am always amazed to find powerful, energizing messages that my soul needed to hear. These movies become surprising new resources for change.

The Day the Earth Stood Still 2008

One of these movies was the 2008 remake, The Day the Earth Stood Still starring Keannu Reeves as the alien visitor called Klaatu. It was amazing to see Klaatu utilize his highly evolved abilities to control technologies with his mind and heal the injured.

What moved me the most was a core message of the movie which states that "Only on the brink do people find the will to change. Only at the precipice do we evolve."

Klaatu came to save the Earth from the thoughtless actions of humans destroying the planet. But over a brief time he learns to see that people can change when faced with crisis. That crisis was Klaatu's message that humans had to be purged from the Earth.

On The Precipice

Let this movie message mirror your ability to face your economic challenges. Let crisis inspire you to transform your negative thinking and create an optimistic mindset. Remember that positive change can happen when you are on the brink of disaster. Recognize the gift of being on the precipice.

And if you find inspiring resources that others do not agree with then do your best to trust your gut. It might be a controversial or unpopular movie, book or person whose message excites you. Let it fill you with positive emotional energy despite what others may say.

You can adapt to unexpected change and crisis. Open your eyes to all the hidden resources within the storm of the economic climate. You are being asked to evolve your way of thinking. Accept the challenge!

Emmanuel, I love your comment about standing on the precipice. The fear to overcome is taking that first step into the unknown. Each day I now try to do something that scares me. Without doing that, I don't change
