If you have never heard that phrase before then I would suggest you checking out Jim Carrey’s movie The Truman Show. That phrase was an every morning greeting that Carrey-also starring as Truman Burbank-would habitually and joyfully delight his neighbors with.
I remember when little Truman in The Truman Showraised his hand in class and exclaimed, “I want to be an explorer, like the Great Magellan!”
The teacher, quickly retorted while pointing to a map of the world, “Oh, you’re too late! There’s nothing left to explore!”
They did all they could in that movie to stifle any imaginative thought from that boy. The world he knew to be reality was just a made up picture that the world gave him and as a result it’s all he knew he could live, but there was a deep yearning for something more.
Doesn’t that image of adhering to things as they are sound a little too familiar? Though the movie displays an extreme view of life, just how unrealistic is it?
Many can look at the world around us and the magical clockwork that we’ve put in place to help move forward our daily lives and say that it works just fine. Though there are fires and hiccups that need to be dealt with, it still works and it has always worked this way and nothing else is left to change, edit, invent, or discover because everything has already been discovered, right?
Well, if you believe that, you are absolutely right! Nothing changes for those who believe there is nothing to change, until… change happens to them. At that point, change becomes disaster.
However, if you believe otherwise, you are also absolutely right! Everything changes and evolves into better ways for those who believe there are plenty to change, and much left to discover. You have embraced change and are usually part of it. Evolution courses in your veins and the need to build and make your world better lives on.
We’re all here to explore, create, and make things better. There is an open door of opportunity for you if you understand nothing remains the same. When you understand that, you’re ahead of the crowd.
What do you believe is a possibility that others may think is crazy or outside of what they’re used to understanding?
If your teacher told you that there was nothing left to discover, how would you respond and prove otherwise?
