10 Things That Will Help Leonardo DiCaprio Get an Oscar

10 Things That Will Help Leonardo DiCaprio Get an Oscar

Everyone knows Leo DiCaprio deserves an Oscar.

His fans know it, his colleagues know it, his friends know it, his mom knows it. Even those people who don’t consider themselves DiCaprio’s big fans know it. (Thank the Internet with its constant memes!)

And finally, the moment has come when Leo DiCaprio gets a chance to win an Oscar. Actually, he gets ten chances to win it for “best actor” or “best supporting actor”, co-starring… himself.

It seems Leo has decided to play 24 (!) characters in one movie to get that damned Oscar for certain.

The Crowded Room is a new upcoming movie based on the book of Daniel Keyes. The Minds of Billy Milligan tells us the documented story of a man who suffered from a multiple personality disorder and was very nearly convicted of grievous crimes. Billy Milligan had 24 personalities in his head, and his lawyers were able to prove it was two of his alternative egos, not Billy himself, who committed all those robberies and rapes.

Yes, we know Leo is good, he can teach us many things, he will do his best to play this role and get (finally!) an Oscar for it. But the guys from Bid4Papers decided to help him, after all: they created the infographic describing ten core personalities of Billy Milligan. They believe the following ten personalities could be just what Leo needs to get an Oscar.

Being so different in sex, age, occupation, and interests, these ten personalities of Billy Milligan could confuse DiCaprio. Who knows, maybe Leo would use this infographic as a cheat sheet?

Here it goes.

10 Things (Characters?) That Will Help DiCaprio Get an Oscar

Just FYI: Billy Milligan was not a fiction but a real person. He had a number of personalities, ten of which were core (it seems Leo DiCaprio will play them all, and they all were described in the above-mentioned and below represented infographic) while 13 other personalities were undesirables. The 24th personality existed, too: The Teacher, the sum of all “people” put together, helped Billy deal with others, control them, their actions and thoughts.

We believe Leo will play ten core personalities, including Billy Milligan himself. For all fans who want to know the level of challenge accepted by DiCaprio, here goes the list, describing all ten personalities that will help Leo get that long-awaited Oscar:

    Thanks to Daniel Keyes with his book and Leo DiCaprio with his upcoming movie, the world has got interested in the phenomenon of Billy Milligan and multiple personality. Google calls it a mental disorder. To make a long story short, if you are an MP (multiple personality), it means you are often controlled by multiple minds (personalities), and they all can have different age, gender, IQ, skills, memory, etc.

    This phenomenon is real, it lives and shows us how little we truly understand how the brain works. It hides so many mysteries to reveal in future. MP looks and sounds like something unreal, and that is why this mental disorder captures so much attention, excitement, and imagination: people want to read about it, watch movies about it, and learn more facts about real-life people with this disorder.

    Moreover, this phenomenon gives us a plenty of extraordinary ideas for storytelling.

    For example:

    • Are we all MPs?
    • Is it possible for one alternative personality to be born or die within others?
    • Should you be responsible for actions of other personalities from your head?

    Every question is a new story. We are sure, Leonardo DiCaprio will do his best to show his vision of this story and get an Oscar. A long-awaited one. A truly deserved one. And ten personalities of Billy Milligan will help him do this.

    By all means.

    If not, he knows how to get over disappointments anyway.

    How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

    How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

    Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

    If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

    1. Breathe

    The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

    • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
    • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
    • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

    Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

    2. Loosen up

    After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

    Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

    3. Chew slowly

    Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

    Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

    Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

    4. Let go

    Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

    The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

    It’s not. Promise.

    Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

    Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

    21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

    5. Enjoy the journey

    Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

    Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

    6. Look at the big picture

    The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

    Will this matter to me…

    • Next week?
    • Next month?
    • Next year?
    • In 10 years?

    Hint: No, it won’t.

    I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

    Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

    7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

    You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

    Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

    8. Practice patience every day

    Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

    • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
    • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
    • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

    Final thoughts

    Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

    Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
