  • Visit your local library and check out the movie, “Field of Dreams” with Kevin Costner. Or see if there's a free version available to stream. Maybe YouTube has it.

    Even if you've seen it before, we urge you to watch it again, paying close attention to what happened when the main character pursued a pretty wild vision.

    Before you leave this isoBlog, complete the following steps. They'll set you up to better appreciate the movie.

    Will you watch the movie?
  • Kevin Costner's character hears a voice in his head: We all have a voice we listen to - probably not anything like Field of Dreams, but it is a "voice" of some kind.

    You have an inner dialogue that plays in your mind as if on some sort of looping device. We all have it. It's a message that lifts you up or brings you down. That part depends on you.

    What we "hear" as we replay these messages often depends on what people have said to us or about us as we grew up.

    If that negative message is the main one you listen to, then now is a good time to turn it around. You have the power to flip the negative message 180 degrees to become an encouraging one.

    For example, the message:

    *"I will never be able to...."
    becomes, "I was made for this..."

    *"I don't have what it takes..."
    becomes, "I got this far despite the odds, so nothing can stop me but me..."

    *"I have brothers and sisters who need me to take care of them, so I don't have time or money..."
    becomes, "If I reach my dream, then I model for them that they can reach theirs, too. This is my best and we all deserve that."

    *"But what about my past? I've done things I'm not proud of..."
    becomes, "Who hasn't? These things will be what I can use to encourage others to keep going and pursue their own greatness."

    Describe the internal messages you listen to most. What's it saying?
  • Do you need to flip that voice around and make it root for you? If so, how would you flip it?
  • Do you have people in your life who are cheering for you?

    What do they tell you and how do you respond?
  • What message, in particular, have you heard that inspired you and let you know you have something special inside?
  • Here's a new tactic:

    Play the "glad game".

    As you go through your day, and especially when you feel nervous or angry about something, stop for moment. Think about at least one thing you're glad about.

    You can do so now.
  • If you really want to keep those negative messages flipped to positive, then include other people in the "glad game".

    Ask them what they're glad about and listen for their responses.

    Soon you'll begin feeding off each other's more hopeful attitudes.

    How optimistic are you that this approach can make those rough spots in life a lot easier to handle?
  • How are you going to keep going when your path seems blocked or you suffer a setback?

    This is a natural part of any journey, so thinking ahead can make it easier to get through when it happens.

    Hint: a) Have people in your life who will keep encouraging you and help you problem solve.

    b) Play the "glad game".

    c) Continue with isoBlogs that are relevant to your struggles.

    It is the structure, discipline and encouragement of the isoBlogs that can keep you moving forward despite what you're facing.

    You have strength in your Next Step community and the JP team. Don't ignore their importance.

    How optimistic does this make you feel?
  • Time to go watch that movie.
