Have you ever found yourself sitting in a movie theater during the final credits and saying to yourself, "I wish this movie would last at least another hour." Probably not. In fact, the movies you've deemed as wonderful most likely had a deep enough plot and lasted an appropriate amount of time. Truth be told, most of us have probably found ourselves, at times, saying to ourself during a movie, "I wish the plot was better; more adventurous, more meaningful, more action-packed..."
Well, my friend, the plot of the grand movie known as your Life is unfolding at this very moment. Right now does your life feel like it's in the opening scenes? Does it feel like it's reaching its climax? Do you feel like you're entering into the conclusion of your grand movie?
Isn't it strange that when asked, most people will state that they wish the plot of their very own life movie was better and the length of that life movie was longer. Truth be told, many of these same people would say that they only wish their life movie was longer so as to have more time and chances of making the plot better. Interesting...
When was the last time you went to a theater production and hoped that the production was much longer, hoping that as time passed, the performance would get better? When was the last time you went out to a restaurant and hoped the meal would last much longer, hoping that as time went on, the meal would get better? We most likely wouldn't tolerate either - we would get up and walk out.
If you are presently wishing your life movie had a better plot, why are you still sitting in that particular theater? Get up! Walk out! Make new direction changes in your life movie plot. Add new characters and new adventures! Take on a noble cause! Do whatever it takes to make it an award-winning movie.
Truth be told, the production won't get better, the meal won't taste better and your life plot won't improve by adding more time... it's just time to raise the curtain, rewrite the script and change your plot.
