Yesterday I decided to leave the office a little early so that my wife and I could surprise the boys by taking them to see Madagascar 2. You know we had to get there before 6:00 to get the big $3.50 matinee movie discount. I told the boys that we were going to a furniture store (their least favorite place) nonetheless when we got to the movies they were pleasantly surprised.
I don’t know if I am the only one out there who does the following: remembers themes within the movie and takes notes of quotes that catch there attention, applies circumstances to life, applies nuances to leadership… but that’s me. The one quote that made it to my iPhone from Madagascar 2 was in reference to Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller) was talking to his buddy Marty the Zebra (Chris Rock). Marty was hanging with a big herd of Zebras and Alex was telling Marty that he was different than the other zebras and unique; here is the quote “These guys are all white with black stripes and you are black with white stripes.” A theme that made it to my iPhone “Just because you are a King/The man over there, doesnt’ mean that you will be the King/The Man over here and vise versa. Maximize your strengths!” Alex was able to Transcend The Isms
Life is about perspective: cup half empty or half full, white with black stripes or black with white stripes, gray hair=good or gray hair=bad, this season sucks or necessary pruning season… perception can become reality.
Quick Madagascar 2 Review: Wife said it was cute; the boys said it was cool, funny, tight and awesome; I said it was worth the money, a little love story, had some relative leadership/king application and it was funny. Funny Quote from Motto-Motto “Girl you so huge!”
I Like To Move It Move It, I Like To Move It Move It, I Like To Move It Move, Ya Like To (MOVE IT!) That song was in my head all last night, so I figured it needed to be in yours all day today!
