When I was growing up the “Wizard of Oz” movie absolutely terrified me. TERRIFIED. Those horrible monkeys and that witch! How could anyone think this was a movie for children?!
Watching now as an adult, while the monkeys still get to me, there are a lot of lessons to learn.
Particularly from the lion. The lion was afraid of everything and what he really, really wanted was courage. What he didn’t realize is that he had it in him the entire time.
At the end of the movie the Wizard of Oz tells him:
As for you, my fine friend, you’re a victim of disorganized thinking. You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger you have no courage. You’re confusing courage with wisdom. Back where I come from, we have men who are called heroes. Once a year, they take their fortitude out of moth balls and parade it down the main street of the city and they have no more courage than you have. But they have one thing that you haven’t got – a medal. Therefore, for meritorious conduct, extraordinary valor, conspicuous bravery against Wicked Witches, I award you the Triple Cross. You are now a member of the Legion of Courage.
Victim of disorganized thinking. Think about that. To me this means all the limiting beliefs that we can have on any given day.
Do you have this type of thinking? I do. I have to work hard every day to replace these thoughts with what is true. Our limiting beliefs that keep us stuck and tear us down are lies.
It takes courage to replace these lies with the truth. The truth is that you are amazing, people need you in their lives, and what you have to offer is extraordinary.
You don’t need a medal. You just need to believe in yourself and that is courage.
