Get Your Inner Game Handled – Inspiration from Dead Poets SocietyOmg, I just woke up with that movie in my head. Time to go rent it again. One of Robin Williams’ best, and I love Robin Williams.
So, inspired by Sinn and Cameron Teone, who have recently been using classic movies and other pop culture to illustrate game theory … let me point out that Dead Poets Society is a beautiful example of teaching guys inner game. Indeed, the whole movie is like an Inner Game Bootcamp!
At its core, it’s about getting the guys back in touch with their passion and aliveness. Helping them to be more spontaneous and uninhibited, to embrace all sides of themselves. To be willing to find their own truth regardless of other people’s opinions. To follow their dreams. And I do believe, if I remember correctly, that one side effect is that they started doing better with women … They start getting their inner game handled.
Steven: I’ll try anything once.
Dalton: Yeah, except sex.
Keating: A man is not “very tired”. He is exhausted. Don’t use “very sad.” Use, come on Mr. Overstreet, you twerp.
Keating: Exactly. “Morose.” Language was developed for one endeavor, and that is, Mr. Anderson. Come on, are you a man or an amoeba? Mr. Perry.
Neil: Uh, to communicate?
Keating: Nooo!! To woo women!
One of my favorite quotes from Dead Poets Society:
“I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life … to put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.“ – Emerson
And people wonder why I am SO into this seduction stuff. You can get lots of inspiration for handling your inner game PUA from Hollywood!
