Episode 4: Don’t Fall for Movie Trailers

December 22, 2016 No Comments

Don’t fall for the movie trailers.

I love movies. I love actually going to the movies. The fresh popcorn, the brand-new trailers, and the fact that I can just escape for two hours.

But you know the one thing about movie trailers that gets me – the actual trailer. It always gets me to the movie. And think about it, how many bad movie trailers have you seen? Probably none. Maybe one in your lifetime?

For the most part, the movie trailers are great. And then you go to the movie, and the movie sucks. Now, how does that relate to you today? I dive into the trap of “movie trailers” and how we can bypass the trap in our lives.
