Movie week this week and since I have been away from any TV in my house for a while now, I found it hard to find the time to actually sit and watch one of the listed movies. When I got round all the obstacles I had originally put in my mind to not watch television I eventually decided to watch October Sky and I was completely blown away on how many connections there was in the film with the MKMMA course.
Through out the film I consciously recognised that the rocket boy and his friends had a Definite Major Purpose which was backed by a burning desire with a positive mental attitude, a true plan of action, persistence, and a mastermind alliance. Other visible aspects were the law of giving, law of substitution, law of growth, law of the subconscious and law of forgiveness. What is so amazing is the fact that I would have never even looked for these connections before in any movie and because I did, I felt so connected with the movie and I also had many different emotions through out the film. I laughed, I smiled, I was inspired, I believed, and last but not least I cried and I mean I sobbed, especially when the young boy corrected his father that his true hero was him and not some famous scientist.
Life can be how we want it to be and our part is to just use our power of thought and imagine how we want our life to be and the outcome will be exactly what we created in our minds. It is really that simple believe me. Because we know that our world without is a true reflection of our world within.
Charles Haanel says:
“All things have their origin in mind, and appearances are the result of thought. So that we see that things in themselves have no origin, permanency, or reality. Since they are produced by thought, they can be erased by thought.”
“This discipline, this change of thought, this mental attitude will not only bring you the material things which are necessary for your highest and best welfare, but will bring health and harmonious conditions generally.”
The one thing the rocket boy in the film October Sky had for sure and was evident from the start to the end was persistence, he tried and tried and tried again until he won, and as Og Mandino says in scroll 3;
“For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I win”
