This was a fantastic documentary, extremely insightful and definitely one to watch. It is based on Tom Shadyac the movie director of Ace Ventura and Bruce Almighty. From an accident Tom experienced Post Concussion Syndrome. Being so close to death lead him to rethink his priorities in life and there were two questions that he wanted to know. What’s wrong with our world? and, What can we do to change it?
Tom had everything that you could think of, money, the great big house in Beverly Hills, private plane. Our culture said it was the measure of the good life however, all this was totally insignificant as it did not make him feel any happier. The truth is that wealth does not give you the happiness you seek..! It made me think about the things in life that a lot of us seem to gravity towards, those symbols……such as the perfect house, nice cars and money. We become selfish and forget the most important things that is staring us in the face. The things that money cannot buy like, our families, kindness, love and being true to ourselves. Our first point of focus should be on ourselves, knowing exactly who we are, finding the I within..! It is said that “change is the result of a million tiny acts” and It became apparent how the 7 laws of the mind is the road map to it all, this is how we find our way to be at peace with ourselves and able to give to others freely from the heart showing each other kindness, forgiveness and love. If we all done just a little bit it would make society a better place.
Not even money could have changed Tom’s fate if it was his time to go. This made me think about Og scroll V that we have been reading this month, to “live each day as if it is your last.” I am privileged to be here on this journey of life and it has made me realise that this precious gift that I have been given should not be taken for granted or wasted. I have been put on this earth for a purpose, it was not by chance and it must be respected and upheld in the highest regard.
What I took away from this documentary that was so rewarding is that each and everyone of us has the power to change and transform our lives and the world around us..!
If you are ready to make that transformation but not sure where to start, then please accept my gift for a FREE 7 Days To A New Life on the right of this post. This will put you on the right path.
