this could be you….

We were sitting on the couch yesterday when suddenly a friend of mine, hmmmm, let’s call him Joe … said something brilliant. Yes Man was on and there was a scene when Bradley Cooper was on a couch with the rest of the guys. “I don’t get the Bradley Cooper thing, no one even thought he was good looking until The Hangover” Obviously, I began to debate this with him. But he made a good point “Who said,… WOW, that guy in Yes Man is hot?” And I realized I had seen this movie and had not thought that. If I did think something, it may have been more of an inkling that lacked the stamina to form a definitive thought.

As scenes passed, I realized Joe was right. I did not think he was anywhere near his Hangover or Limitless status. I had not mentioned him and though he was not unattractive, his appearance in this movie was not worth a Saturday brunch mention with the girls.

(Enter AJA moment) If Bradley Cooper can be overlooked because of dull characterization, a mundane wardrobe and a not so great hair cut, … then doesn’t that mean that we are all in danger of this? The answer is yes. When we don’t do our best pampering, when don’t date ourselves, when we don’t think we’re hot, when we’re not evolving like a main character does … we’re Yes Man’s BC. It’s not until we own the main character role that we shine. This works across the board, it’s physical, it’s intellectual and it’s emotional. Be the main character in the story. Dress the part and carry yourself into a new status. No more supporting roles.

I mean, let’s face it—– this guy is hot (!!!!!) and even he totally faded into the background.

If you don’t own it… you won’t feel it. You don’t feel it, they won’t see it.

Cheerio, chaps
