Tip#640: Re-ignite Your Passion – The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

An unexpected life or career obstacle is always a gift if you choose to see it as an opportunity for self-growth. And movies, even a comedy, can help inspire you to persevere and gain insights of what you need to do next to move forward. Plus you get to have a good laugh to shake off some stress!

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013)

The comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is about the lifelong friendship of two magicians, Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi), a successful Las Vegas magic act faced with a competitive street magician named Steve Gray (Jim Carrey). There are lots of laughs in this film as well as some over-the-top Las Vegas show hairdos and costumes!

One of the key motivational aspects of this film is that after years of performing the same magic show every day Wonderstone had lost his passion. He is helped to recognize this when he meets the same magician that inspired him as a child named Rance Holloway (Alan Arkin). With Holloway’s guidance Wonderstone re-ignited his love for magic even if he was performing at a senior’s home or a kid's birthday party.

This movie will inspire you to:
• Re-ignite passion
• Adapt to change
• Develop supportive relationships

If you are feeling stuck in your life or career see it as an opportunity to recognize whether or not the feel good energy of your passion is flowing. Passion is your fuel to enjoying the work you do and for accomplishing tasks and goals. Make sure you are brimming with this fuel and you’ll bring conscious joy into your day every day!

Remember How Movies Can Help You:
A) Entertain & Escape
B) Re-energize & Release
C) Insights, Epiphanies & AHA moments
