Everyone Needs An Edward
According to the L.A. Times, Eclipse opened with first week sales of $175.3 million making it the most successful first week sales for any movie so far this year.
And yes, I too am a sucker for the Twilight Saga.
I have been challenged on many occasions by my more rational friends (usually of the male gender I might add) to explain my fascination with vampires, werewolves and far-fetched story lines…
So here’s what I’ve got for you…
Everyone needs an Edward.
(And guys, before you choose to check out, hang in here. I think I have a nugget for you too.)
Everyone needs an Edward because…
Everyone needs a fierce defender. Someone who loves you that ridiculously and protects you with the fiercest love and devotion.
Everyone needs someone who understands our fragility. Someone who understands how fragile you are and cares for you with the ultimate gentleness.
Everyone needs someone who believes in them. Someone who believes in the good you are and are yet to become.
Everyone needs someone who watches out for our heart. Someone who cares for and protects your soul.
One of my favorite John Maxwell leadership laws is The Law of the Inner Circle. John explains the importance of having a team of people around us who play different roles in our life: Intercessor, Listener, Encourager, Creator, Discerner, Giver, Defender, Implementer, Celebrator, Resourcer, Sponsor, Thinker, Networker, Mentor & Protege. (I’ve talked about this before here.)
We long for teammates who complete us, who complement our gifts and champion us to be our best.
So maybe, just maybe that’s what all we raving Twilight fans are connecting with.
Go Team Edward!
