to the first person who correctly names this movie.
A young lady opens a letter that states that she had an article published in a magazine. She runs to her father to tell him the wonderful news. She hands the article to him and he crumples it up and throws in on the floor. I didn’t send you to college for you to become a damn writer and walks out the door.
We then see him at a bingo parlor and just as he begins to proclaim bingo, he collapses on the floor and dies.
The pain is too great
Next the daughter is going through a box of his things. She reaches in and picks up the crumpled article. She has a puzzled look on her face. Her mother walks in the room and see’s her daughter she tells her, I need to explain something to you.
When we got married we agreed to take the money we got at the wedding and go to America to pursue your fathers dream of becoming a writer. He worked day and night until the money ran out and never got a single article published. We went back home in defeat and your father went to work in the factory, never to realize his dream. Your father was very proud of you and didn’t want to see you get hurt.
Why didn’t he keep writing when he came back? You see, most people who go for their dreams and fail the first time never go back to try again because the pain of defeat is just too great to try again.
Such is the life of the entrepreneur.
We see the entrepreneur who has succeeded and think what a success story. Not knowing how many times he failed before he managed a level of success. Regardless of how many times they failed, the passion they have for their endeavor was greater than the fear of failing again.
It is that passion for what they pursue that gives them the energy to create. That creative force is inside each of us. It is the fear of failure that keeps us from experiencing the joy that comes from creating something bigger and better than ourselves.
That is much of what the work of Mind Whispering has been for me. I had heard it said many times that if you do what you love you will never work again. That has certainly been my experience. To learn more about Mind Whispering and Whispers
