Tip#456: Believe Anything Is Possible – The Oprah Show Underdog - The Pursuit of Happyness

Knowing that May 25th is Oprah's last show inspired me to relook at the New York Times article, "Who Will Be Oprah's Last Star?" where I was featured (see article). I realized I was the underdog in the article AND the only Canadian featured. I always wanted to use this article to help inspire others to believe anything was possible and that's when I had an AHA moment!

Excitedly, I decided to do a press release with the help of my "LiveLighter/Writer Guru", Steph Miller. She wrote it with enthusiasm and came up with the headline: OPRAH'S LAST SHOW: WILL CANADA'S MOVIES THAT MOTIVATE EXPERT BE A FINAL GUEST? Underdog In NY Times Article, Toronto Movie Blogger & Motivational Speaker, Emmanuel Lopez-Motivatorman, Remains In The Running

My goal is to be able to share my story of how movies helped empower me to stay positive and productive during my recent adversities. I want to share with the media how I found the vision and courage to deal with my bankruptcy and losing my home in 2010. At the same time I want to share how others can tap into their own inner strengths through the power of movies.

The Pursuit of Happyness 2006

Based on a true story, The Pursuit of Happyness shows how Chris Gardner (Will Smith) believed that anything was possible. The movie depicts many scenes that seemed unbelievable but were true such as Gardner and his young son sleeping on the bathroom floor of a subway station while homeless.

One scene that was shocking but true was Gardner showing up underdressed for his meeting with stock brokerage firm Dean Witter. It seemed impossible that Gardner would be accepted for the training process wearing a Members Only jacket and paint speckled sneakers but he did.

Help Get My Message Out

I believe anything is possible and I hope you do too. Some of the greatest movies are about the underdog and I believe I'm an underdog for being in the New York Times article AND appearing in the last Oprah Show. If you'd like to support my dream and you have a media contact, please forward my press release to them: Download Press Release

I am also documenting this grassroots process of who is helping me get my message out so others can learn how to use social media to make their own dreams come true. It's all about expressing the excitement of what you desire to the world. Do it online or in every day conversations. Someone will believe in you and do what they can to help. Express your dream or goals to someone today!
