Doctor Strange aka Benedict Cumberbatch: 5 Lessons You Taught Me


Doctor Strange aka Benedict Cumberbatch: 5 Lessons You Taught Me

Bonjour No!

Half way through the week & it’s #WednesdayWisdom.

Who’s excited for the upcoming Doctor Strange Movie?!
In honor of my love for all things comics & Marvel, today’s post shares with you 5 lessons both Doc Strange & Benny Sherlock has taught me.

Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch CBE (born 19 July 1976) is an English actor and film producer who has performed in film, television, theatre and radio.

In 2014, Time magazine included him in its annual Time 100 as one of the “Most Influential People in the World”. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in June 2015 for his services to the performing arts and to charity.

Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange, also known as Doctor Strange, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by artist and character conceptualist Steve Ditko.
5 Lessons

5. Faith is my Sword. Truth my Shield. Knowledge my Armor.

true Defender never raises arms against an innocent, no matter how they
threaten you–“

 Superheroes aren’t always fictional, in fact they’re just based on your relative perspective. To many of us our Mothers are our greatest Heroes. The mantra & ethos of a hero, is when given the Chance, they choose to make a difference. Be humbled if you do receive this Gift and do not squander it.

4. Today’s Journey could become Tomorrow’s Legend.

believe observation and knowledge must precede action.”

Success does not happen overnight, it’s a process, it’s a journey and most of the time it’s a really really long, really divergent one. Yes it’s mucho important to have goals & envision your dream lifestyle but it’s even more imperative that you enjoy the path that takes you there. 
3. Never Settle, Never Give Up

“You come into this world as you leave it, on your own. It’s
made me want to live a life slightly less ordinary.”

Success always lies just outside your comfort zone. It’s so easy, beyond easy in fact to settle for a life of ordinary when the Extraordinary appears less and less attainable. But I say NAY! BeLEIVE in MORE, believe in YOU. I promise you, you were born with infinite possibility.
Never Settle, Never Give Up.
You are More than what they say you are.

2. Rebel against the Machine

seek to weaken my resolve with fear! But know that Dr. Strange understands
fear– and rules it!”

 Challenge yourself EVERYDAY. I might be spontaneous, impulsive even but everyday a new challenge awaits me and I tackle it with renewed vigor. It’s awesome to have a plan, just make sure it’s flexible enough to include a few twists & turns.
They say intelligent get bored very quickly, if that’s you then YAY you, you’re intelligent. Which is why it’s important to try new things as often as you can.

  • Work can become repetitive.
  • Life can become repetitive.
  • Excersize can become repetitive.
  • Relationships can become repetitive.
  • Cooking can become repetitive.

The solution is be in a constant state of evolution & adaptation.

1. One more Chapter before Bed

matter the danger, no matter the dread challenge that awaits me … I … must
go forth…” 

As my all time favorite author says, “Books are uniquely portable Magic.”
Fits with the theme of Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme, no? 🙂

I am a firm believer that the Written Word & Books are mankind’s Greatest Invention since the dawn of time. 

Words are immortal. 

Books can transport you to unbelievable worlds, rekindle your romantic heart, emblazon your passions, entangle your emotions, heal your soul, empower you mind and even “put a stopper in death” {Harry Potter fans will get that}

They are the life blood of our society & I could spend infinite lifetimes just reading them ALL.
In the series Supernatural, an angel & the scribe of God, has been living on Earth for centuries & even with his super mind to retain knowledge, his immortality, he still hasn’t caught up with all that mankind has written!

Feel infinitely alive TODAY, pick up that book you’ve been holding out for. Honor the amazing authors that have spent countless hours of rejection upon rejection only to push forward and publish their books. 
Quis Custodiet ipsos Custodes?

–Who will Guard the Guardians?–

Become apart of the Legend that is the Reader.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Join me next week for another 5 Lessons.
Doctor Strange is scheduled to be released on November 4, 2016
