Tip#474: Growing Into A Leadership Role - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

I just saw the final Harry Potter movie and I was extremely thrilled, entertained and deeply moved. So many thoughts and feelings have surfaced. The first film came out in 2001 and it reminded me that so many highs and lows have occurred since (see tip#400). I feel the 8 films and Harry Potter's challenges AND growth from boy to man to leader mirrored my own growth and learning. And ultimately this final chapter forever cements the enduring power of friendship and love.

Norm Wilner, film critic of Now magazine has a review that also mirrored my thoughts about the movie so please check it out: click here

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 2011

The movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 is the epic eighth and final installment in the Harry Potter film series. The story continues Harry's (Daniel Radcliffe) quest to defeat his arch-nemesis Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). Despite the immense adversities and the painful losses Harry faces he has physically and mentally grown into a full-fledged leader.

Witnessing Harry transform into a strong, resilient and compassionate leader was inspiring. There are powerful scenes where he displays great courage and will. There are many times he is quick and resourceful in finding which direction to move forward on. And there are scenes where he inspires outstanding loyalty when others are willing to risk their lives to stand by him.

And despite being head strong Harry is still open enough to stop what he is doing when a friend insists they listen to their insights and direction. All in all you will recognize growth in many of the characters of this final film chapter. Let whoever you connect with onscreen inspire you deep inside to recognize your own strengths and potential. Let them show you how to become the leader in your own life.

Hi Emmanuel, I'm so happy to discover your website and your passion to inspire & motivate others through movie quotes & themes.

I'm a big movie fan just like you! I especially love watching inspiring/motivational movies such as 42, October Sky, The Legend of Bagger Vance, etc. I'm a Harry Potter Fan and a strong believer in LOA (Law of Attraction) as well!

What I love from watching movies was to uncover deep meanings and use them to relate to my own and others' adversity, to help others see possibilities beyond their current circumstances and to attract more positive outcomes in the future.

Thank you for your inspiration!
