Groundhog Day Survival Secret
October 15, 2020 | Mark Cunningham
In the movie Groundhog Day, the main character Phil Conners (played by Bill Murray) gets stuck in a time-warp where he re-lives the same day over and over and over and over and…
Well, you get the idea.
And if you are one of about 1/2 the planet that are now in lockdown or quarantine… you may feel like it’s every day is groundhog day for you too.
But even though Groundhog Day is a comedy… there’s a secret in the movie for surviving and even thriving these hamster wheel days.
Now in the movie Phil goes through stages of confusion and fear. Then tries binge eating and drinking, one-night stands, and robbery.
At one point he even tries killing himself… only to wake up again to have to re-live the same day.
Once he realizes there is no way out, he decides to take advantage of the situation by becoming a better version of himself.
He takes piano lessons.
He learns how to do ice sculptures.
He learns to speak French.
And he starts helping the local townspeople.
As a result he becomes a much happier man.
So what’s the secret?
Instead of sitting on the couch binge watching Game Of Thrones or scrolling endlessly on Facebook, consider this extra time you now have as a GIFT.
- Finish projects you’ve had on your list for years.
- Learn something new like a language, skill, or musical instrument.
- Train your mind and your body.
- Reconnect with friends and family.
- Reach out and help someone who needs it.
Use this time wisely to BUILD A BETTER YOU.
