If Nacho Did It - You Can Too

This movie clip has been resounding in my head all weekend....well that and the Rosebud scene from Citizen Kane...but that's another story entirely ;) In this hilarious and ridiculous clip Jack Black's character hides the fact that he is secretly living out his dream as a wrestler.

Mostly it's just hysterical to watch Jack Black's facial expressions but it does bring up a good point - What would happen if you set out to make your dreams a reality? What would happen if you follow your heart? Would you quit your job - Start a new project or pick up an old one - Make amends with a co-worker - Apologize to a friend - Say I love you?

I make it a point to consistently examine my life and ask myself -- Am I the director in my life or a member of the audience, anxiously waiting to see how it all plays out? Am I choosing the various paths of my life or am I living someone else's dream?

And if you can recognize the irony laced within these sentences you're already ahead of the game.
