I’m patiently waitin’ to view the new God of War video game on Youtube. I stopped playin’ video games four years ago … But…
You know those cool walk throughs? Yeah, they’re dope.
I sometimes watch them when I wanna get some new storytellin’ ideas.
Have you seen a new video game lately? They’re bananas. The graphics are butter now. Smooth, creamy, delicious.
Oh, boy – as I’m writing this – I thinkin’ bout pancakes and bacon, ugh.
So, for the God of War video games, the creators re did a lot of things. Firstly, the main character – Kratos.
He’s really… matured – he’s now a dad, has a full beard, and a bald head. Instead of being a wild womanizer. He still has a bad, bad temper, though.
Sounds cool, right?
This got me thinkin’ – Movies and Video games – through storytellin’ – are tryin’ to sell consumers ideals. An ideal to live up to.
If you look at Kratos, he’s perfect. Perfect body, beard, weapons, fightin’ ability.
In commercials, dudes are shredded and the girls are thin.
In superheroes, the main characters are buffed out & crazy strong.
Now, most people in their life never achieve that level of fitness – at all.
Takes too long. Too hard. Etc, etc.
But these are the things that people want. And is what self improvement is built on.
Gettin’ the better body, better relationships, more money, a nicer house or car, a better degree, etc.
Self improvement is bout seein’ the ideal on the screen, and addin’ it to your life – no matter how it takes.
Could take a day, could take 20 years.
These ideals are what life is about. Strive for something greater. Anything.
Cause it makes life crazy more fulfilling.
That’s why you should try to your best to live up to that ideal as much as possible.
Go for it.
