This is a new series that was inspired by Paul Angone and his 11 Questions That Every Twenty Something Needs to Answer! For the next several weeks, every Tuesday, I'm going to be answering these questions. Send me an email or comment below your answers if you're a twenty something. Or, if you are past your twenties, how would you answer the question or what would you have done differently back in your 20s. Us twenty somethings, we love advice! Will you join me?

Whenever I get asked the question, "What is your favorite movie?", I always have a hard time answering. I wouldn't say that I'm a movie buff or that I know a lot of movie trivia, but I do LOVE movies. And I love pretty much any genre of movie. My collection ranges from romantic comedies, 80's classics, adventure, sports-related, action, musicals and anything superhero related.
Needless to say, I always have a hard time narrowing down my favorite to just one.
But, what do my top 5 look like? What is the general story line that I could watch over and over again and never be bored?
Paul Angone, suggests that "your core values are laying on the surface of your favorite stories."
When thinking about the movies that I really enjoy there is usually action, an adventure that involves travel of some sort, and an underdog. And if there is one thing I love, it is a good underdog story. Whenever I watch football games, I will most likely choose the underdog, (unless it's my team playing, of course) because I love a good upset. I love when a team comes out and does the unthinkable. They come from behind to win the game or they completely blow them out of the water from the beginning. And it's especially good when they do this on their opponent's home field. Oh, man. The headlines for stories like that are just so, so good.
Even in stories where the underdog is just one person, they have such inspiring lives. They may not come from a pretty past, but they worked hard, fought, and survived to come out on top. They are determined to give their family a better life than what they had. They accomplish what everyone told them they wouldn't be able to accomplish. They overcome and defeat their enemies.
Underdogs succeeding are inspiring, because it shows us that with determination, hard work, effort, and dreams, we can accomplish anything.
I am, in fact, a dreamer. I can daydream with the best of 'em. I always think up amazing life stories of how life would be if I had it all my way. I dream about traveling pretty much daily. I dream about how I could change the world, or at least a small part of it, if I had all the resources needed.
I love watching other people reach their goals and seeing their dreams become a reality. I also have to admit that I get a little jealous sometimes when I see those people, because they make it look so easy. Like it all just came together so seamlessly for them. But in reality, aren't we all underdogs at some point in our lives?
We all have some obstacle in our life that seems impossible to overcome. Maybe it's just one thing, maybe it's multiple things. It could be one thing right after the other. Maybe it is something that will always be with us, something permanent that we can't change.
But, the dreamer in me says, there is always a way to overcome. Whether we do it alone, with the help of friends, or a whole community, there is a way that we can overcome. There is a way to make our dreams possible. Some how, some way, a change can be made. And just one change, can create something entirely new.
Will it be perfect? Will it be easy? Will it be long living? Maybe not. But, even just for that small moment that it was a reality, you were the underdog that came out on top.
And standing on that mountaintop, looking down at all the terrain you just climbed through, is an amazing feeling you won't want to let go of.
