No matter what your personal demons are, you can defeat them. All you need is belief in yourself and a little creativity.
We watched one of our favorite movies last weekend, Three Amigos. A small village is being overrun by the local bad guy, El Guapo. The three amigos have rescued the woman and El Guapo is coming with a posse of over fifty men to wreak revenge. The village looks to the three amigos for guidance and Ned offers advice.
He tells them it's time to stand up to El Guapo. He then goes on to say that everyone has to deal with their own personal el guapo. He asks what they're good at, their skill. They tell him and it's surprising what happens next.
What does a comedy have to deal with real life?
Each of us has personal demons (El Guapo) to overcome. It could be a person or it could be our inner critic. It could be a mental illness or circumstances in your life. No matter what it is, you can defeat it. Believe you can do it is half the battle. The other half is a combination of creativity and perseverance.
How are you going to defeat your El Guapo today?
