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 Tap Into the Power of Positivity

    How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

    As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

    “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

    When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

    Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

    We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

    But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

    So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

    It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

    1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

    Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

    2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

    This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

    You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

    3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

    This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

    4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

    How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

    So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

    If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

    And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
