Three Lessons to Take from Minions

We might not be able to understand much about what Minions are saying, but what they show us speaks louder than words. I recently went to see Minions in the cinema, and I picked out three lessons we can learn from them:

  1. Always look out for each other – Whether we’re just offering a bit of comfort, courage or company, or whether we’re valiantly saving someone from getting blown to pieces, we should always take care of each other. It could make all the difference to that person, whether we realise or not.
  2. Be brave – It’s easy to get comfortable where we are because that’s what we know and that’s where we know we’ll be safe. But that doesn’t mean we’ll always be fulfilled and happy in that safe place. Don’t be afraid of stepping into the unknown and taking opportunities to experience more of life.
  3. Never give up – Life won’t hand us everything we want. But that doesn’t mean we can’t ever have it. Even if things feel like they’re not working out, sometimes we just need to take our time. We’ll get there in the end if we stay persistent. And it will be worth it.

Have you seen Minions? What would you add to the list?

Measuring Success

BookerTWashingtonObstacles

In an attempt to measure success, we inevitably measure failure, obstacles, boundaries. But do we value them or value the absence of them? Many of us view failure as a sign of weakness, imperfection, and unoriginality. But that is not the case at all, as long as we do not allow any failure, any obstacle, any boundary to be point at which we end the journey. Every time we overcome, re-cooperate, re-organise, our goal becomes even more important. The success isn’t made sweeter by how quickly or effortlessly we got there, but instead by how much we were willing to struggle, to put in the time, to never give up. You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you had to overcome to reach your goals.
