To those that know me, you know by now that the Matrix Trilogy has a couple of some of my favorite movies. I remember when each movie came out and how ridiculously sick these movies were – and still are, really. It changed the way we saw everything; well, it changed how I saw everything. After getting caught up in so much stuff, like college, I lost track of the significance of something as breakthrough as the Matrix. There are so many quotes people can live by it’s ridiculous. Whenever I get a chance, I watch it as many times as possible. Good thing it’s on a lot in HD! I like watching it before going out and times like these when I am writing articles because it gets me so pumped up! It really does “free my mind.”
Why bring this up? Well, although the Matrix wasn’t real, there were the certain few that could manipulate what goes on inside the Matrix and pretty much do anything within their belief. Morpheus preached that. “Don’t think you can. Know you can.”
If you see me quote something, chances are, it came from the Matrix.
It’s all about believing in yourself and making a choice. All of these principles apply to everything in your life – your career, women, family, friends and everything else you could think of. You are in control of your own reality and you call the shots. You may not realize it but you have the ultimate power of controlling what happens in your life. If you don’t like something, you can change it. It won’t be instantaneous like these guys do but you can change it over time. It’s all about how willing you are to take the risk and make the change. You have to realize that this can happen and only you have the ability to do it. No one else is going to help you or bail you out. You have to decide your own fate.
One memorable quote just happened. Neo asks Morpheus, “So are you telling me that I can dodge bullets?” Morpheus responds with, “No, Neo, I’m saying that when you’re ready, you won’t have to.”
And you know what? He’s right. When you’re ready to accept the fact that you are in control, nothing will faze you and you will be able to handle anything that comes across your path.
I’m an extreme believer in constantly watching movies or listening to music that will keep you upbeat – or if you’re angry to relax you. These are great motivational tools to keep you at your best and to truly believe you are capable of doing something. If I come across more, I will definitely post them for you check out.
So stop limiting your beliefs and free your mind. You’ll be seeing things in a different light.
If you end up seeing things like Neo did in the Matrix, contact me ASAP.
