If you haven’t seen the movie “We Bought A Zoo” I would highly recommend it. Yes it is predictable and sentimental, but it is also inspiring, motivating and it makes you feel good about humans. It is a strong reminder that people can accomplish anything when they work together and have a positive mental attitude.
One of the best lines in the movie is Benjamin Mee sharing these words of advice with his son, “You know, sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage, just literally 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery, and I promise you, something great will come of it.”
As you go through the day today, call on that 20 seconds of courage to help you share a new idea, make a tough decision, face a person or situation you have been avoiding. Present it in a positive way. Seek out the people who can help you implement and or resolve whatever it is you are trying to accomplish. Apply this principle to your work and personal life and something great will come of it.
