Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Marvel’s Planet Hulk

Long before the rumors of a live-action Planet Hulk movie and the partial Planet Hulk story in Thor: Ragnarok, Planet Hulk was a direct-to-video Marvel animation film. The movie tells the story of a permanently transformed Bruce Banner as the Hulk.

Because of the danger the Hulk possesses, the Avengers decided to send him off to a peaceful planet. As you can guess, something goes wrong. The Hulk wakes up mid-flight and goes into a berserker rage. He destroys crucial navigational instruments and the ship flies off-course.

Marvel animated movie Planet Hulk

Crashing landing on the alien planet of Sakaar, he is greeted by aggressors. The Hulk (Rick D. Wasserman) is imprisoned along with other aliens. Their captors force the captives to fight for their freedoms.

Only then do the people realize who the Hulk is. He is the savior of their world.

Discovering The Power Of Reinventing Yourself In A New Year

The start of a new year offers you the illusion of something special. A new start. A fresh start.

While there’s nothing different on January 1st than on July 7th (other than it’s Pam’s birthday), we tend to take special actions at the beginning of a new year.

We set New Year Resolutions. We resolve to make big changes in our lives. Or we dream about what a different life would look like.

But why is January 1st the special day? It’s because we clear the sheets from last year and see the possibilities of a new year. We look at January 1st as special because the date helps us to make a clean break.

You don’t have to use January 1st to make your clean break. You can break free at any time and create a new you.

Why Your Mindset Will Be Your Biggest Struggle

Do you know what the biggest hurdle to changing your life in 2019 will be? Your biggest hurdle will not be family or friends. Your hurdle won’t be your job or your title.

The biggest hurdle you’re going to face is your mindset.

The Hurdle

Your mindset will cause you to stumble and fall. It’ll tell you that you’re wrong or made the worst decision ever.

It’s funny how the small space between our ears will be the biggest battlefield we’ll ever face.

Our minds love to play tricks on us. They love to get us down and out.

From negative self-talk to the replay of past failures, we’re constantly telling ourselves we’re not good enough. This sets us up for future failures. It’s also why your mindset is going to be your biggest hurdle for changing your life.

A Reel Leadership Article

Eighteen years after the release of one of my favorite movies, M. Night Shyamalan returns to write and direct the last movie in the Unbreakable trilogy. Glass concludes the three movie story arch with a bang.

The start of Glass sees David Dunn (Bruce Willis) working with his son, Joseph Dunn (Spencer Treat Clark), to rid his city of crime. They’re working in a security business during the day. During the night, David goes out to fight crime as The Overseer. Their next big target is Kevin Wendall Crumb and his many personalities (James McAvoy), the main villain from Split.
