The Truman Show Famous Quotes

By Tiara

Our lives are filled with stories that influence us for good or bad. Some people have such incredible stories that it changes you as a person. They may inspire you to keep going when you could stop, they may make you admire them, and maybe even copy some of their behaviors or actions. These stories also expose you to different cultures, worldviews, and moral philosophies.

There is one famous quote about storytelling that I think applies very much to this article. This quote says something like: if we're in a story ourselves, then what we write will be infused with our own personality and subconscious motivations.

I believe there's an underlying motivation why most people in society are constantly exposed to negative stories and messages. It's because these individuals don't understand the importance of telling their own stories and living out their dreams.

Many people lack confidence in themselves and their ability to succeed. In fact, there are entire industries built off of this perception by society.

It seems like everyone has a story of how things went wrong for them and this negativity gets spread through word-of-mouth communication and media. Over time, this can really hurt your self-confidence.

Negative stories get repeated over and over again until they become our new normal. We begin to assume success won't happen for us, so we give up.

But here's the thing: it _can_ happen for you.

There are no guarantees in life

We live our lives, from moment to moment, seeking constant reinforcement of how good we are. We have such a high opinion of ourselves that we constantly look for ways to praise ourselves.

We talk about gratitude as a daily practice but I believe it is more like a rutting ritual than anything else. When you wake up in the morning, you are going to be grateful for being given another day with your precious self so you start by giving yourself a big head nod and saying “good job!” before heading out the door.

After work, you go home and say similar things to yourself while lying in bed. Then you go through the same process in the evening, again offering yourself some kudos for enduring yet another day.

But what happens when you get off the bus or train ride home? You stumble into something unexpected – like having to interact with someone other than yourself. That can sometimes be a challenge and requires you to put aside all those nice comments and instead ask questions, try new behaviors, and learn new skills.

I think a lot of people lack motivation to do any of these because they don't see the value in what they already know. They feel insecure about their place in this world and fear there may be somewhere better for them elsewhere. This can lead to a paralyzing sense of inaction and resignation over who they are and what they have done with their lives.

We cannot choose our parents

the truman show famous quotes

Growing up in a very wealthy family, we are surrounded by an incredible amount of wealth. This is not limited to things like cars and homes, but also opportunities that come with being rich.

My father gave us access to some amazing educational institutions, paid for my brother’s college education, and even funded his wedding. He never made it seem as if having money was what mattered most, instead emphasizing that we should strive to be kind and honest people who live life to make others happy.

He always told me that I could do anything I wanted to go anywhere, he just asked me to believe in myself first. And he lived by that himself, constantly putting in effort into making sure that everyone around him knew they were important to him.

I will probably never know how much emotional pain he went through because he did not have many close friends, but I can say that whatever happiness he found came from within himself and didn’t need anyone else to feel good about themselves.

That is something I tried to teach myself at a young age and something that has helped me find success in my life. If you work hard and put in the effort, then you will get your reward — not because someone else thinks you're worthy, but because you are. You earn it yourself." - Tracy, 22

We are all given a gift when we are born

the truman show famous quotes

As human beings, there is something special about us that makes us different from other animals. It’s what allows you to feel compassion for others even though you will never know what it feels like to be in their position. It’s what compels you to help strangers or people who are less fortunate than yourself.

It’s also why some people seem to have a knack for leadership. Even if they don’t formally learn how to lead, they instinctively develop relationships with people around them and make sure everyone else knows they can be counted upon.

And I think it’s important to remember this as we grow older because it can sometimes get difficult. As we reach new stages of life, we can start to feel isolated and maybe even thought that no one understands what we go through.

But whether you're 20, 30, or somewhere in between, I want you to recognize something - YOU ARE NOT ALONE! You are not more stressed out than anyone else. You are just as much a person as anyone else and your personal struggles matter — they do not disappear simply because you think they should.

We must find what we are passionate about

the truman show famous quotes

Finding your passion is not an easy thing to do, but it’s essential if you want to live a happy life. You have to know how to identify your passions, though. It doesn’t just happen naturally.

A lot of people think that being passionate means liking something more than anything else you put your hand to. But that isn’t necessarily true.

Being passionate means wanting to engage in the activity with enough intensity to make it matter to you. It’s having interest in the activity to the degree that you feel obligated to keep doing it even when you would rather not.

It’s feeling so engaged by the activity that you can’t help but keep practicing and learning from it. In that way, your passion becomes an integral part of yourself.

There are many ways to learn new skills, be they professional or academic. What makes one way better than another? Why should you invest your time in this one instead of that one?

For some people, investing in music teaches them how to play an instrument. For others, it’s painting or drawing, or writing for creative expression.

And while none of these things guarantee success (no lesson plan does), those who are successful often spend lots of time studying their craft.

We should always be optimistic

the truman show famous quotes

“We should all try to achieve three things that we know how to do, and then we should learn a new thing”- Maya Angelou

This is one of my favorite quotes because it reminds me to never give up in life. Life can sometimes feel like a struggle but you are not alone. There are many people out there who have done what you want to do and they will help you get through this difficult time.

I learned how to swim when I was very young so now swimming is something I enjoy doing. As I got older, I enjoyed dancing more and majored in dance at university, so becoming a professional dancer was something I wanted to do.

Now I am able to combine both these skills and teach others how to enjoy them as well. If I could offer anyone some tips for improving their skill or learning a new activity, I would tell them to keep trying even if you make a mistake.

Life is too short to not live it to the fullest, especially since we only get to spend our lives here once.

Hire your friends to help you

the truman show famous quotes

As we know, having lots of close friendships is an important part of life. It helps you feel loved and supported, it keeps you motivated, and it gives you someone to talk about most things with. Plus, being surrounded by people who love you is probably one of the main reasons you’re so happy right now!

But before investing in all-day coffee sessions or expensive membership cards at the gym, ask yourself if these are actually good investments. Investing time into friends can also cost you money if they’re not worth it.

Running after friends who don’t seem to care much about you will only hurt you in the long run. If you notice that some people around you aren’t as friendly as they used to be, try to figure out why!

Was this person you spent time with recently diagnosed with a serious disease? Did their job lose its luster for them? Does no one else invite them anywhere anymore?

If you discover that something has made them give up on friendship, then never force anything on anyone ever again. They didn’t do it to you, and you wouldn’t want to become a jerk like that either.

Become a lifelong learner

the truman show famous quotes

There’s no end to learning, and there are infinite ways to learn. You can read a book cover-to-cover many times over. You can take courses at universities or through online education portals. Some people even find it helpful to learn in groups of individuals with similar strengths so that they can motivate each other.

Whatever method you choose, just be sure to add value to the world by educating yourself. Help others understand a concept or technique by teaching them what you know. Share your knowledge and skills so that you continue to earn points towards our goal of leaving this planet better than we found it.

In fact, I would go as far as saying that every person you meet has something to teach you. We’re all here for a specific reason, and we’re all doing our best to achieve our own personal goals.

By acknowledging these things about everyone you meet, you start building small bridges between people. You become aware of how much you don’t know and you're willing to invest time in looking outside of your current area of expertise. This is an excellent way to boost your self-confidence and connect with other people.

"I've learned more from my mistakes than any success I have ever had." - Bill Clinton

If you want to truly succeed, you must fail repeatedly.

Look to the stars

the truman show famous quotes

Many famous people’s stories are filled with inspiring quotes that explain their personal philosophy or what made them who they were. These sometimes one-line statements have left an impact on others, helping you understand part of their personality.

Some examples include Albert Einstein’s quote about life being like a journey, and Oprah Winfrey’s quote about happiness being based on your own perception.

By adding meaning to your life, you become happier. You feel empowered – knowing why it is important to you makes you want to keep doing things that make you happy.

It’s like running a marathon – if you don’t know how to run a marathon, then you should probably just stick to walking!

Running a marathon requires no special skills, but looking forward and achieving goals takes some motivation. Just thinking about all the runners out there inspired you to get up and go. — Sarah Alesci (@alesciahd) May 5, 2018

There are many ways to achieve this. Some say reading books or watching movies can help you find reasons to live. Others suggest making friends or learning new things or taking chances to do things you've never done before.

But none of these work unless you're willing to put in the effort. No one's going to do it for you.
