Are you taking the call?

Have you seen the movie, Jerry McGuire? It got the Oscar for Best Picture in 1997 … And best actor, best supporting actor, etc.

And, it’s one of my all time favorite movies.

Jerry is “holding on by a thin thread” … as Cuba Gooding Jr. says in the movie.

He has this moment at the beginning where he begins to question his entire life. He sees himself and his life and says: I hated myself …. no, that’s not it, I hated my place in the world.

So, Jerry decides to change his life.

And of course, it ain’t easy.

Jerry has issues …

Jerry has intimacy issues … He’s told: You’re a great friend, but bad at intimacy.

Because he’s lived on the surface.

And lied to get what he wants.

However, he discovers something worth going through ALL OF THE DISCOMFORT for: He discovers he wants to be true to himself.

I admire him.

Because he jumps into the well with courage.

He takes the call.

He takes the call.

If you’re standing at the edge of a well, looking down and wondering what you will do with your life, good for you.

I was pushed into that well long ago.

I know many who take this call in their 20’s … even better!

The sooner the better.

And to reassure you, you have everything you need … to take that call.
