Once you’ve set your intention and you’re clear on what you need, you can start focusing on the most important person in the scene to get it.

In the movie Interstellar, Astronaut Cooper tries to say goodbye to his daughter Murphy, who’s so angry at him for going on this mission that she won’t even speak to him.  The most important person in the scene for Cooper is Murphy because it may be years before he returns (and he may not return at all), so he *must* get her to speak to him since it’s the last time she may ever get to do so.  The most important person in the scene for Murphy is, of course, Cooper; not just because she doesn’t want her dad to leave, but because she’s decoded the message that she *must* get him to understand:  stay.  The scene plays with great emotion because both actors have made each other the most important person in the scene!
