Tip#749: Resilience & Rebirth - Rush

This is Easter weekend and I just enjoyed a marathon screening of four movies at a friend’s home and on his amazing large 3D flat screen TV. Dining on classic burgers and fries and chocolate Easter eggs we watched films we each chose: Rush, We’re the Millers, Iron Man 3 and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

With the return of warm spring weather and it being Easter I like to celebrate the theme of rebirth and renewal in my life. And after seeing the four films, I recognized those themes within these diverse movies of dramas and comedies. It was the first time I saw Rush and was also surprised at the multitude of inspirational content it provided for resilience and renewal.

Rush (2013)

The biographical sports drama film, Rush, is based on a true story during the 1970’s about the rivalry between race car drivers James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). The movie also showcases two different approaches to finding success in life and career and the resilience it takes to bounce back from extreme adversities. See: movie trailer

This highly entertaining film is filled with exciting Formula 1 race car scenes and inspirational tips for winning and achieving goals. Lauda experiences a horrifying car accident burning his face and damaging his lungs. He then demonstrates great courage and inner strength to heal and return back to the profession he loves within 5 months. The pain you see him endure in the hospital is gut-wrenching and yet inspires everyone, including Hunt and the racing crowd, with his incredible resilience.

You’ll be inspired by Lauda and Hunt on several levels. See this film to empower your resilience at work and in life. And if you have experienced life-changing traumas be inspired to know that you can feel reborn to begin again.

“Watching you win those races while I was fighting for my life, you were equally responsible for getting me back in the car.” 
Rush (2013)
