The life we learn with … and the life we live with after that.
Those words come from THE NATURAL, the film we discuss on this
week's episode of our summer series LIGHTS, CAMERA, CRUCIBLES: What
Our Favorite Movie Heroes Can Teach Us About Overcoming Setbacks
and Failure. It’s hard to think of a better way to express the
truths we try to share each week on this show: offering hope and
practical action steps to learn the lessons of your crucibles in
order to chart a course to a life of significance.
In this rousing story of the redemption of the otherworldly
talented baseball player Roy Hobbs, he learns that talent alone is
insufficient to live a life on purpose dedicated to serving others.
He, and we, need to sharpen our character as well as our skills and
surround ourselves with those who believe in us, and challenge us
-- no matter how long the journey might take.
