If you’re a movie watcher, there’s a possibility you’ve seen the film, John Wick, starring Keanu Reeves. Of those who saw it, you either loved it or hated it, and there was no in between. If you loved it, then you probably enjoyed the world that was created and analyzed the little details, like the John Wick tattoo that said Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat, which means Fortune Favors The Bold. But what exactly does that mean?
Fortune Favors The Bold means that courageous or brave action is often rewarded. It’s a phrase that encourages you to takes risks, challenge yourself, and to do what scares you. It’s a powerful set of words, and if you’re able to keep it on the front burner of your brain, it can help you take that extra step in conquering your fears, phobias, and anxieties, like asking for a raise, confronting a bully, getting on an airplane, or in the case of John Wick, becoming a hitman and taking on a whole mafia by himself.
In the case of the brave, John Wick, his life is a continuous series of bold actions. He doesn’t fear leaving the world of crime, the consequences of it, and then the repercussions of getting his revenge. He’s not afraid of anything. And maybe for those of you who loved these films so much, you love them because he’s living on his terms and it’s something you want to do to if you’re not doing it already.
John Wick’s Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat Tattoo aka Fortune Favors The Bold, may just change your life. And if it’s not, maybe it should.
