Peace be the Journey!
“Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up it’s bobsled time….Cool Runnings!!!!”
This was one of my favorite movies growing up and it was so different watching it from a different perspective. A perspective of not just enjoying the movie but really breaking down the steps of persistence and success, The Hero’s Journey. Still laughed really hard at the lines that I would quote over and over as a child.
Sanka: “Why don’t I draw a line down the center of your head and make it look like a butt!”
Derice: “Sanka, ya dead ‘man?”
Sanka: ” ya man.”
But…now as an adult going threw experiences and having two girls of my own and praying every day that they will know that they are loved and that they can do or be whatever they want to be and it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks as long as they think and know they can do it.
How did Derice and the others go through the four steps of forming persistence:
1. Burning desire
2. Working plan of action
3. Removal of negative thoughts…Mental diet
4. Mastermind alliance with someone else
Each had a burning desire but in the beginning that desire was not the same for each of them. There were times I wondered watching this movie this past week if the working plan of action was always effective. Like showing up to the Olympics without a bobsled… and in the beginning there was definitely some negativity between Yul Brenner and Junior but over the course of their journey they came together. Yul supported and created a mastermind alliance with Junior when he was struggling with his father. Through out the movie the team came together, even Irv to create a team that was in perfect harmony. The moment they eliminated hate, envy, jealousy, selfishness and cyncicism they were united in a perfect cause.
Growing up I never caught or maybe just wasn’t aware of the real life application of Irv’s conversation with Derice before their last run. Derice asked Irv why he cheated and Irv replied because it was always about winning for him and when you make it about winning you will do anything to win. Then the profound quote,
“Derice, a gold medal is a wonderful thing. But if you’re not enough without it, you’ll never be enough with it.”
I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving harmonious and happy! If I am not all these things to start out with then all of my goals and dreams and aspirations are in vane because I first have to know that I am enough regardless of what I have or own. I have to know that I am a divine human being and that I matter. Then to always REMEMBER and continue to fuel that testimony…never to forget!
I just have to scream for the roof tops….” I love it, I love it, I love it! I can be what I will to be and I love you Sarah Horne!
Peace be the journey!
