Daily Prompt posts: We all know someone who could use a pep talk… so write them one!
Talking about pep talk, it reminds me of an inspirational speech in a movie I used to watch! My favorite teacher, who used to teach me the subject, Literature, back in Secondary School, is accustomed to using films and screening plays as a means of incorporating learning values in us, which are of course related to what we’re about to learn / learning.
How I love those lessons
… of movie screenings!
There were a couple of inspiring films she showed us, like Rain Man and the Freedom Writers. The significant pep talk I remembered comes from the movie, titled Coach Carter.
I’m no part of any Pep Rally and it’s quite unimaginable to see myself doing a pep talk to a team of people and then, they’ll convinced by it. But I’ve dreamt of being able to do that! Maybe to just serve the purpose of comforting or encouraging myself during my down moments.
I can’t write a pep talk, but maybe I’ll share this one from this movie to anyone who could use a pep talk – to a few people I know of who are feeling discouraged and inferior at this moment, anyone and including myself who needs it now and then for the same reason:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
