Film Metaphor for Transition Times

As a film metaphor, the Deer Hunter is ideal. It provides a great film metaphor for the transition period we are facing now. The abyss, the point of no return has come. Will we shoot the dear? Will we change? Or not?

Please remember that you are the protagonist and the director of your own film. You are the only person making all choices and living your best life.

So, what do we need to do in the abyss? What do we need to do at this historic moment in time? The point of no return.

Inner Wisdom

Please, have a deep, long think and find your own answers. Your inner wisdom is there. You know it. You can feel something’s wrong. This is not all there is to life.

You can do better! There’s a whole new life waiting for you.

Your purposeful life. Your best life.

Exponential Growth

We can spread our own mindful actions with the mathematical formula many businesses use. Exponential growth.

And don’t think we are powerless. We are with many.

It goes like this.

2 x 2 = 4

4 x 4 = 16

16 x 16 = 256

256 x 256 = 65,536

Do you see what I mean? It’s like a virus. If everyone infects one other person, or maybe even two or three, we’ll have changed the world in no time.

So now might be the time to take action.

Ideas:

  • You can make your life simpler. Live with less stuff
  • Create a permaculture garden, grow your own food
  • We can join forces with people in our communities and get some local action going on all kinds of subjects that are dear to us
  • We can be an activist and spread the message of regeneration
  • If you want to collaborate, please contact me

Workshop ‘pitch like TED’

How inspiring to have a room full of students who have great ideas and want to inspire others with those ideas. That is what happened when I gave the workshop ‘pitch like TED’ in the library of Venlo. They learned the funnel technique of storytelling, the criteria for a great talk and the secret ingredient (OMG). And then they practised. Together in groups and on stage. What a vibrant city we can make with these wonderful students!

TEDxVenlo

Our coaching team at TEDxVenlo will organise more of these events. So keep an eye on our Facebook page and be there next time.
