New life is a powerful concept and possibility in every area of our existence as well as the title of a new movie that I am very proud to be associated with. Click Here We can experience a new life in any aspect of our world including our friends, our family, our faith, our finances, or our fitness.
The first step to experiencing a new life is to release the old life. Our world abhors a vacuum. Once you make space in any area of your physical, mental, or spiritual life, something new can fill that space, but it is impossible to get something for nothing. A seed must die for a new plant to grow. That plant will bloom and create new seeds which, in turn, must die to keep the cycle of growth and life moving ahead into the future.
The New Life movie concept came to me from an industry colleague named Drew Waters. I met Drew when he was starring in a movie based on my book The Ultimate Life. That movie involved a flashback to follow the early life of Red Stevens who may be the most iconic character I ever created in any of my books. Red Stevens was played magnificently in The Ultimate Gift by legendary actor James Garner, so the thought of having someone else play that character as a younger man seemed awkward and uncomfortable to me. Then I met Drew Waters and got to experience him bringing to life a younger version of the character that Mr. Garner had embodied in an earlier movie.
Drew and I were at a red carpet movie premiere event for The Ultimate Life when he turned to me and said, “I’ve got a story for a film that I’ve got to share with you.” I was absolutely mesmerized by the story as you will be when you watch the New Life movie, but I was concerned when Drew told me he was not going to act in the film but would, instead, be making his directing debut on the project. My concerns were unfounded when I experienced the same energy Drew had brought to The Ultimate Life as an actor in every scene of the New Life movie as he directed it.
The film is a story of love, loss, legacy, learning, and experiencing new life. I am very pleased that my company, the Narrative Television Network, combined forces with Drew’s production team so the 13 million blind and visually impaired Americans and their families as well as millions more around the world will be able to experience this powerful new movie.
I fervently hope you and your family will enjoy New Life as an entertaining movie experience, but also as a catalyst to re-examine your priorities and move to a higher level in every aspect of your existence.
As you go through your day today, leave the past behind, and step into a new life.
Today’s the day!
