【YOMU-SAPULI 】Seeding the future.

Dear Readers,

A great ATM once said, "Do you have everything?


"How was your flight? Did you watch any videos?"

"When I said "Yes", I felt that it was an important message for me at the begging of my trip to Brooklyn."

"I watched "The Founder." The story of Ray Kroc, a salesman who turned two brothers' innovative fast food eatery, McDonald's, into one of the biggest restaurant businesses in the world. I worked for McDonald's, so I understood it quite well. After all I was impressed by the story and watched it twice.
Anyway, it's a must watch and highly recommended."

"I see, I see. Did you know people cry easily on planes?"

"Really? I didn't know that."

"It's true! That's because of altitude. People tend to get emotional at high altitudes. And people are emotional anyway because on the way to somewhere we feel excited and on the way back we are returning to our normal life so we tend to analyze our existence."

That reminded me that I watched "Good Will Hunting" in 1998 of early summer and while I was also heading to JFK airport. I was moved to tears more by the story than any other I have ever seen. I bought the DVD and cried many times from moment to moment.

Last year, when I was making my seminar, the theme was “Future”, I realized "Good Will Hunting" was important to my life. The story-line is that a young man who struggles to find his identity meets a psychologist who opens his mind and his heart and helps him to find direction in his life.I wished to be like that psychologist but I worked for McDonald's,I wouldn’t become a psychologist as long as I wasn't born again.

But now, I have became a life coach and have sessions like the psychologist. I don’t think it's an exaggeration to say that my future was decided on my flight from Tokyo to New York. I can probably say that being impressed by something to feeds the future. I didn’t set out to become a psychologist consciously, but I found myself to be a life coach.

"The Founder"also made me impressed and I found inspiration in it. The Founder finds his dream in front of the picture of "Golden Arches" at the office of the McDonald's brothers. So I felt the movie told me it's time to draw my Golden Arches for the future.

We need to embrace emotion at the moment of realization, whenever the moment comes. Even in front of an ATM!


Have a great week☆彡
