Tip#654: Recognize Your Wealth of Experiences - Being There

My faith is being stretched this month of May because I’ve been receiving confirmations that my primary purpose in life is to be even more transparent with the world and share more of my inspiring life experiences, positives and negatives. For example, I recently had a deeply insightful Skype call with Mark Turner, an executive coach in the UK, who told me “I have a wealth of experiences that need to be shared.”

Over the past months I’ve been wanting to be of greater service with my multiple skills and talents such as: speaker, facilitator, writer, social media consulting, illustrator, etc. My challenge has been focusing these talents which is why I’ve been seeking help in this area. And I was moved when Mark recognized my “wealth of experiences” because it also extended to why I write this movie blog. I’ve been inspiring readers all over the world for over six years and have been searching for how to take it to a higher level.

Being There (1979)

The comedy drama film, Being There, is about a simple-minded gardener named Chance (Peter Sellers) who affects every person he meets in a profound, inspiring way. The irony is that his passion for TV and gardening are part of his jargon and heard by others as optimistic, life affirming wisdom. There are many hilarious scenes that result with new friends he makes like a wealthy, dying man Benjamin Rand (Melvyn Douglas), his wife Eve (Shirley MacLaine) and the US President (Jack Warden). See: movie trailer

I saw this film when it first came out and now gained new insights and enjoyment because Mark highly recommended I see it again. Very much like Forrest Gump, Chance was just being his authentic, true self and he automatically had a profound affect on everyone he met. Chance was not burdened by ego or hiding anything about himself. And his wealth of experiences included information derived from TV and his views on gardening. He made a difference in the world just by being open, fearless and for speaking his truth!

If you feel you have a wealth of experiences to share then be inspired by movie heroes who are authentic and fearless about sharing what they know. Your experiences are meaningful to someone somewhere. What movie heroes inspire you to be more fearless? Please let me know!
