This week in the Master Keys; Hanaal talks about harmony, we transitioned into to Scroll 4 in the Great’s Salesman by Og Mandino and we got to watch one of four of the following movies.
- Cool Runnings
- Door to Door
- October Sky
It was a nice change to an adult movie, we usually end up watching movies the kids want to watch. By the way, each of my 3 children received movies for Christmas, I have ending up watching each of Despicable Me 2, Planes and Monster’s University at least 3 times in a little over a week.
I apologize for getting side tracked; but I was able to convince them to watch “Cool Runnings” for one night at least. Anyways, for our assignment this week, we had to watch one of these movies and identify the 4 steps that we have been learning to achieve our bliss which are;
Definite Major Purpose (DMP) back by a burning desire.
Positive Mental Attitude (PMA)
Plan of Action (POA)
Master Mind Alliance (MMA)
I have never watched a movie from this advantage point before which was very cool by the way. Without going into detail about the movie, it’s about a 4 Jamaican who wanted to be Olympians and a coach who was seeking redemption.
It was a great way to show my children to pursue their dreams and to never give up. Where one door may close another opens, as the movie shows 4 Jamaican Olympic hopefuls, trying to make the Summer Olympics. But ended up in the Winter Olympics, with a plan of action and mastermind alliance of those 5 people, they were able to make history to be the first to represent their country in the Winter Olympics and almost shocked the world with their performance!
It’s funny, even with my children’s movies I can see these traits as well. For example in Planes, Dusty (a crop duster) has a dream to see and race around the world; he masterminds with others and develops a plan of action while maintaining the positive mental attitude and becomes a champion. The same goes for Monster’s University, from childhood “Mike” dreams of working on the scare floor at Monsters Inc. He has a burning desire and plan of action (attend university) and Master Mind Alliance with Sully eventually. He was able to achieve his dream, maybe not how he originally intending but he got there never the less.
So ask yourself if a fictional plane, monster and the true story of 4 Jamaicans who achieved their dreams, what’s stopping you from achieving your dreams?
Absolutely nothing can stop you from achieving your dreams/ bliss, if you have these four things;
So, where will your dreams/bliss take you?
