As You Watch
Click here to review our January forecast, then consider the following as you watch this month’s selection.
Here we have a cautionary tale, a portrait of a person who fell out of step with the world, fell behind as a result, made a colossal mess in the effort to correct, and (after Life’s swift kick in the pants) used honesty and acceptance to establish a fresh path forward.
- As you watch, jot down the instances of where Lee (or Win Win’s Mike) is behaving based on innate personality, limiting belief, poor attitude, simple anger or frustration, and desire—stubbornness?— to use their professional talent (even misguidedly) vs. shift life’s foundation to a different way.
- Note the myriad moments in which they are given a choice of how to proceed, how they acted, and what drove that choice.
