Soul Food for Friday March 25th 2016: The Power of Your Words and Pictures- 1, 10, 100 and 1,000

Happy Soul Food Friday!

This week: The Power of Your Words and Pictures

Leadertalk or Victimspeak by Robin Sharma:

Part of what made people like Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi legendary were the words they spoke.
Just think about it…

Words of hope can lift whole nations. And words of hate can destroy entire races.

Victimspeak will diminish your personal output while leadertalk will galvanize it.

1 Amazing Human Spirit: “My Body Switched Off and My Imagination Switched On”

Paddy Slattery’s Amazing Human Resilience Story on BBC created a compelling “parking lot moment for me and I simply couldn’t leave my car and had to hear the whole story…

Paddy’s story begins at around the 26:33 mark in this edition.

10 Remarkable Films:

Now that you know what Paddy is made of, this is what he has made:

In his own words, here are the 10 films that have inspired Slattery to become a highly regarded writer, director, producer, and dreamer:

100 Iconic Lines and Memories That Will Live Forever:

100 movie clips in 10 min that make you want to see them all again and again….

1,000 Times More Unique!

On a night-time dive near Hawaii, 2 divers were found by a bottle-nose dolphin and it started to swim around them over and over again.

When looking closer, one of them discovered the reason for this strange behavior – the dolphin had a fishing line hooked around it, hindering its ability to swim.
They cut him free, and the dolphin swam away. The fact that a dolphin would come to humans for help maybe evidence of its’ intelligence, as most injured animals would never come close to a human. This is  amazing to watch 3:14 Minute Video – Best Viewed Full Screen:

Thanks this week go to Andrea M for sleuthing a story, Robin S for framing the topic, Paddy S for leading by example and Larry H for the 100 movie clips and dolphin encounter!

Here is to your masterpiece and order of magnitude!

Pay it Forward!

If you are anxious, you are living in the future.

If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”
