I’m slightly going off topic here because, well, I feel a need to urge people to do just what it is they need to do for themselves and their lives. Too many of us seem to be stressed and unhappy; let’s see what we can do about that.
I had a friend call because she needed to vent. She’s had a tough go of it lately; actually, she’s been having a tough go of it since I met her years ago. I’ve never told her this directly, but almost every single piece of it is her fault. I sympathize with her only because she’s my friend, and for no other reason.

I’m thinking this is definitely an appropriate question to ask people on a Sunday. Since most Christians go to church on Sunday, some people might say their religion motivates them, and if that’s the case then it’s a fine answer. Some go to church on Saturday, though I expect if it’s religion the answer still might be the same.
I’ve never really touched the topic of religion on this blog because I’m a nonbeliever. I truly believe that as long as people don’t oppress anyone else because of their belief and if they don’t push their religion on someone else, then it’s all good. Whatever makes people happy and can motivate them to feel as good as they can, I have no problem with any of it.
That means, however, that people like me need other ways to motivate ourselves. I have written about motivational stuff on this blog and my business blog. On this one I had a post titled 10 Things That Lead To A Happier & Healthier You. I had a post showing 3 motivational videos. I had another post with videos and explanations of motivational stuff called The Soundtrack Of Your Life. I had one simple post way back when that gave links to motivational posts. And I’ve written about The Secret, which includes a video of the first 20 minutes or so of the movie, and Being In Heaven, the latest motivational video on the market.
When I need motivation, I turn to things like The Secret, videos, some CDs I have of Zig Ziglar and other presenters, and sometimes I grab one of my “millionaire” books and read some passages from one of them. See, my dream is to be a millionaire, so I have lots of books with the word “millionaire” in the title. I really do believe that if you feel it and believe it you will be it; might take some time, but it’s a reasonable goal.
If you loved the movie The Secret and you enjoyed the movie What The Bleep, and maybe enjoyed or heard in passing about a movie called The Opus, I think you might be ready for the latest installment in motivational movies.
It’s called Being In Heaven, and it’s the story about a guy who loses everything, then finds people to give him guidance as he finds his way out of all his problems. Not only does he find ways to make money, but ways to live a better life overall.
Once again, it’s an Australian film, and last October they actually showed the film all over the continent in movie theaters. They seem to do it right there, because they didn’t quite do that when The Secret came out, and I think people would have been blown away seeing it on the big screen; it blew me away watching on my own TV at home. Below is a trailer for the movie:
Anyway, you’re probably wondering what the banners are for. It seems that I’m on a mailing list of people who love motivational movies, and they actually wrote me and asked me if I’d like to be an affiliate for the movie. What kind of idiot would I be if I didn’t hop on that? If the trailer is enticing you, then you can click on the banner ad above or below and check it out.
Just so you know, you’re buying the movie from Australia, but when I bought The Secret I bought it from Australia as well, which is why I have the original instead of the one that’s in the stores here now; trust me, there are big differences in the two movies. I think y’all are going to enjoy this one; I’ve already ordered mine.
Man, I’ve been on a tear. I figured it was time to slow things down, and it’s a Saturday, so what better time than to rest a little bit. So, instead of a lot of words, I hope you’ll indulge me in a little bit of sharing I’d like to do. Here are 3 videos of the motivational type. They’re relatively short, but they remind us of just why we’re all here on Earth, and why it’s a pretty nice place to be.
The other day, when I was saying there were no secrets in marketing, and there being way too much stuff that’s the same, I also happened to talk about this movie called The Secret, and said I was going to talk about it one of these days. Today’s the day.
