I watched the movie Dunkirk last night, and it completely moved me. Have you seen it? Highly recommend it. Usually these days, I’m not one for war movies, however I was compelled to watch this one.
When 400,000 men couldn’t get home, home came to them
The thing that struck me the most from the English and French soldiers depicted in the movie was their ‘nerves of steel’ their ‘never say die attitude’, they kept going no matter what. Whatever obstacle were thrown up in front of them they found a way around it, over it or through it. Just incredible strength, fight and determination of the human spirit.
On reflection, I compared their lives to what we have today… where food, shelter, safety, running water and other basics of our lives are often just taken for granted and not appreciated. And yet in the same breath you hear people grumble of their own problems ….. of what’s going on in their lives. The dramas, the little things that are blown out of proportion into something that takes over their entire lives.
I know I’ve been guilty of this thinking too. However now, I’m very aware of my internal thought patterns, because I know, trust and believe how powerful the meaning of our thinking actually is and it’s the internal thinking that creates our external world. Every time, not just now and again every time.
So how can you create ‘nerves of steel’ in your own world, and do whatever it takes to make your dreams and your creations come true?
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts” Winston Churchill
You make the WHY you want it, so big and powerful, that no mater what is thrown at you in your life, no matter what people say, that you stay true to you. You’re thankful for the lesson, the learning and you then keep moving towards your dreams and goals.
You listen into your heart, your intuition and on a daily basis, moment by moment you take aligned action following your intuition, even when it takes you outside your comfort zone, because that’s where the next level of growth always comes from to reach your dreams and goals.
Wish It … Dream It … Do It!
