Not just any movie, we were asked to watch one of four movies:
Door to Door
Door to Door
I found Door to Door in 7 parts on youtube and my husband and I watched it together.
I explained to him that we were looking for four things:
Definite Major Purpose
Positive Mental attitude
Personal Pivotal Needs
Plan of Action
Persistence – a definite plan, expressed in continuous action
When we were done watching the movie we discussed what we saw in the movie. Really, each one of these things was in that movie. Bill Porter knew what he wanted, he stayed positive and he went after what he wanted. Nothing could stop him. He was determined, persistent and patient.
It was truly inspiring and well worth watching. Great movie and full of lessons. Patience and persistence are the most prominent… tons of other little tidbits sprinkled throughout the movie.
We decided to watch another movie. I know, the assignment was to watch one movie… but we found October Sky for free on Netflix movies to watch Instantly and we decided to watch it.
Same things to look for as the other movie… and like the other movie, this movie had all of those things. Homer Hickam was definitely persistant. He knew what he wanted and he went after it. He had his own personal needs… he knew what they were and he stayed aligned with his values.
This is a great movie for every child in the world to see. Too often children (and adults) give up on their dreams and decide to do something because they have to and not because it is their dream.
Follow your dreams… that is the real lesson.
I have one more video to share. This is one of my favorites… and I hope you enjoy it too. Please comment below and let me know what you think of it!
