My two favorite movies (It’s A Wonderful Life and The Wizard of Oz) have a theme in common. George Bailey and Dorothy Gale both want to go out in the world and find great adventures over the rainbow somewhere.

In the end, though, they discover that what they needed and wanted was right in front of their eyes all along: Bedford Falls. Home.

Step back and take another look. Maybe you already have the brains, the heart, and the courage you need.

Maybe what you want is right here, right now, right in front of you, looking you in the eyes in the mirror.
