The Wolf of Wall Street
After blogging about the corporate world, and watching the award shows this month, I decided to see The Wolf of Wall Street. What a great film.
Any of these characters could be my clients. They are Mafia types taken out of "street thug scenarios" - placed in corporate America - programmed to lead a lifestyle of total debauchery - eventually getting arrested - going to a white collar prison - then getting out and going into the self-help business where many repeat the pattern.
In the film, Leonardo DiCaprio's character Jordan receives a greatly reduced sentence for his testimony serving, 36 months in a minimum security prison. After his release, he makes a living hosting seminars on sales technique. Here was have the pattern of someone leaving the corporate world to go into the healing worlds to make a living based on their past - and yet their patterns are always there though they rarely see it. Would Jordan continue to be "The Man" with all the answers who is going to "Make it Big" while womanizing, etc.? Yes... This is why I dislike self-help gurus. Most of them are dysfunctional and have terrible energies. Love and light and let's all heal and do energy work is often grossly overrated, but it is an interesting pattern in human development.
The leading female character is Naomi Lapaglia (Margot Robbie) referred to as the Queen of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn - a great depiction of the lives of many Mafia or Wall Street wives - and some of my clients. The Bimbo babe of yesteryear, is becoming extinct giving way to educated women who can take care of themselves - although they are still programmed to believe happiness comes from finding The One. Remnants of their existence can still be seen as the babes on reality shows with all their idiotic cliche issues (more clients). I love my job ...
