I have a confession… I finally watched the Matrix trilogy!
All these years later, I got to see what all the hype was about. I guess the first movie came out 20 years ago! I was only 11/12 at the time – and no 11/12-year-old needed to watch that movie. Plus, I don’t think I would have grasped the undertones of the movie.
If you haven’t seen the movies and you want to… spoiler alert spoiler alert SPOILER ALERT LOL!
A (very) brief recap of the movie: The world is now run by machines/AI and the machines harvest humans as their energy source. The humans are in a “Matrix” which is a false reality world that takes place in 1999. They have no idea that they are harvested, that the world is run by machines, or that they are in a very distant future. There is an underground movement where the humans harvested leave and try to break free from the machines and know the truth (they are the definition of “woke”). The movie has three main characters: Neo, Morpheus, and Trinity. Neo is basically the “savior”, and is meant to help break all humans free. Morpheus is one of the first to be woke and is leading the brigade to stop the machines AND he’s there to help Neo truly believe that he’s the one. Trinity is Neo’s love and she’s there to always support him, watch out for him, and show him true love. It’s an amazing trilogy. I recommend it!
So, you’re probably wondering if this is a review of the Matrix trilogy or a life coaching blog post… I guess it’s a mix of both, ha! The movie is so symbolic and after I finished watching all three (in a span of 1.5 days), I came to the realization that:
I AM A MORPHEUS!
Morpheus is the quintessential life coach! He goes out and find Neo, he speaks into his destiny, he believes in him, he teaches him, he NEVER gives up on him, he leads others to their purpose and destiny, he’s smart, he’s strong, he’s legit a LIFE COACH!
Without Morpheus, Neo would not have reached his destiny. He needed him to train him, teach him, guide him, lead him, and again, NEVER give up on him! That’s what people need now.
Everyone has SO much potential, but they don’t have someone to help get that potential out of them and then apply it to help change the world.
Are you a Neo? Do you know that you have something on the inside of you, BUT you can’t seem to figure it out? Do you just need help being guided?
Do you want someone to never give up on you, no matter how hard it gets? This is what a life coach does! This is what I do for my clients.
