I just watched a film over the weekend called Tales of Everyday Magic: My Greatest Teacher. Based off the life of Dr. Wayne Dyer—who’s an international renowned author and speaker in the self improvement industry.
I’ve been a big fan of him since I was a teenager and hes also a big fan of meditation and Taoist teachings so I may be a little bit bias.
But he has an incredible life story, especially for the fact, that he was extremely resilient in getting where he’s is today. I hear a lot of people complain about rejection in their career.
Dr. Dyer dealt with all sorts of rejection in his life and he’s probably one of the most resilient and tenacious people currently walking the planet. His first book Erroneous Zones wasn’t selling well, so he got in his station wagon and traveled from state to state promote it. That book today has sold over Six million copies worldwide.
Tales of Magic: My Greatest Teacher goes into a part of his life where he dealt with growing up without a father.
The movie peers into the life of a college professor named Dr. Ryan Kilgore who is trying to build a successful career. Only to be challenged by the flashbacks of emotional hardships by a father he has never known.
The movie takes an intimate look into how one mans memory of the past is affecting not only his career but his family life as well.
After losing his grandmother, he goes on a journey of self-discovery to remove the barriers that bind him to the past and come to terms with a father he has never known.
This movie does what any great movie does—it takes you through a series of emotions that are sometimes sad—but lead you to a new inspired way of thinking.
The ending of the movie changed my way of thinking, and the inspirational message stuck with me for several days after viewing the movie.
