It’s Time to Be the Hero in Your Own Movie
As you begin to view each moment in your life as a scene in a movie; these moments will tend to take on a greater significance. You’ll begin to realize that a few botched, boring, or drawn out scenes can kill the momentum of an entire movie.
But there is a greater benefit to viewing life this way.
Once you realize that you’re the star you’ll find that your awareness kicks up a notch.
How often have you found that you’ve basically let yourself fade into the background? How many times have you watched as someone else walked away with the leading lady? In fact, I bet there are times that if it wasn’t for your face staring back at you in a mirror you’ll have completely forgotten you exist.
And as you’ve confined yourself to a shitty supporting role, your movie has turned into something your grandmother would be bored to tears watching.
Yes, I said.? Most people live painfully boring lives.
This doesn’t happen to the “hero.” The hero is hyper-aware of everything that is going on around him. He is looking for opportunities to shine. He is always looking for opportunities to arouse the audience’s fat asses out of their seats. He is programmed to get the leading lady. And he’ll be damned if you don’t leave the theater breathless with excitement.
Don’t take this the wrong way. I’m not telling you act like the selfish, spoiled movie star who only cares about how his hair looks on camera. I’m not telling you to adopt a selfish attitude of “it’s all about me.” If you look at the guys who seem to have it all; money, success, women… most of these guys are not selfish pricks that only care about themselves. But they DO command the attention of a star- because they are.
It’s time that you think of yourself as the protagonist in the most exciting movie ever produced. The movie should contain a splash of comedy, some intrigue, adventure, some drama, romance, and whole lot of sex scenes!
Living your life like it is a movie means you need to constantly be aware of the ROLE you play. Your character can go through a hundred metamorphoses if you want. He can be banker, a fireman, a waiter, a rockstar, a rock climber, a college student, a world traveler, a photographer… in fact, throughout the course of the movie he can be every one of these things. The important thing is that he is consistently playing the STARRING role.
Do girls leave you confused as to whether or not they like you?
Let's face it. Girl's don't make it easy for you. She will often send mixed signals leaving you unable to tell if she is being friendly or flirty. If you read her signals wrong you risk rejection and embarrassment. Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
Here is a simple and innocent move that will instantly tell you if you're in the friend zone, or if she's waiting for you to kiss her.
