While watching the 2013 movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” with Ben Stiller I was inspired! In the movie Walter is the Negative Asset Manager for Life Magazine, and although he has successfully manged countless negatives, he’s misplaced the negative that will be the image for the last cover. He goes on an adventure to find it, doesn’t give up until he locates it, and delivers it in time to be processed. Delivers it without looking to see what it is…
When the last issue of Life Magazine is completed and on news stands, Walter sees himself on the cover and is in shock! The cover image is below courtesy of You Tube.
Although he took the responsibility of his job very seriously for many years, he underestimated his value of working hard and collaborating well with an important photographer of the magazine that strongly suggested this specific negative for the cover of the last issue dedicated to the people who made it (who made Life Magazine possible).
Have you ever underestimated your value?…
I have more times than I can count! What it can look like is not standing up for yourself and speaking your mind. Not giving yourself credit when credit it due. What it can feel like is being let down (mostly by yourself). Also thinking and acting smaller than you’re intended to. Underestimating your value is YOU placing limitations on yourself, YOU creating your own roadblocks, and YOU standing in your own way of fulfilling the important responsibilities and purposes you were made for.
I encourage you to say Yes and step into Your Value with Your thoughts and Your actions. By saying Yes expect to say No to some other things that have been standing in your way. When you say Yes you have the power to help, support, and inspire everyone.
