I just recently watched it
a g a i n. . .
I often do that with movies I really enjoy:
over and over and over again. . .
Have you ever begun again?
The 2014 movie, BEGIN AGAIN with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo is hardly Academy Award winning in any aspect, but, just the same, this is my favorite scene where Ruffalo’s drunken record producing character imagines instruments playing.
“That’s when the magic happens,”
his character tells us.
And you. . .when does the magic happen for you–in your head. . .in your heart. . .in your soul. . .?
The greatest stories
The worst stories
The greatest speeches
The worst speeches
The greatest pep talks
The worst pep talks
The greatest motivational insights
The worst motivational insights
come from Y O U. . .inside of you
Just because we don’t say IT out loud doesn’t make it any less powerful.
Forget all of the great speakers you thought were awesome, or motivational, or inspirational or inciteful. . .
YOU ARE THE MOST POWERFUL SPEAKER YOU’VE EVER HEARD
What we tell ourselves
What we imagine
What we convince
What we think between our ears is more herculean than any other message heard or read.
Dare you harness THAT imagination?
Dare you leash THOSE thoughts?
B E W A R E :
Your imagination is the most influential force you’ll ever encounter. . .
or you’ll ever need. . .
Wow. . .listen to that music
It’s the greatest symphony ever composed;
It’s the greatest orchestra ever assembled;
and it’s all inside of you
Shhhhhhhhhhh. . .
Listen. . .
let your eyes close slowly. . .
see. . .
hear. . .
Y o u,
have already tapped your baton on the podium. . .
your arms are raised
and shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. . .
The first notes are about to
