11 Life Lessons From The 'Lego Ninjago' Movie
My 8-year-old son, my wife and me went to watch the awesome animation movie 'Lego Ninjago' yesterday.
It was one of the best cartoon films I have ever seen and my little boy agrees with me fully.
There is so much fun and adventure packed into the movie that we were on the edge of our seats the whole time.
Added to the powerful plot was the fact that one of our favorite stars 'Jackie Chan' was playing a pivotal role in the movie.
My son loved the movie so much that he was drawing cartoons in his book as soon as he came back home.
As a soft skills trainer who has trained thousands of people, I felt that I must share the 11 most important lessons that we learned from the Lego movie.
Here are the 11 life lessons we learned from the 'Lego Ninjago' movie....
1. Look at things from another point of view. It helps to come up with a wonderful solution to the problem on hand. It's pretty much like the Opposite Thinking Principle. And it works well as per this post and this one.
2. Be happy with who you are. Don't try copying others. Don't do things just to be part of the crowd. Be unique. Be yourself.
3. This one's for the parents. Spend quality time with your kids. Teach them how to do kids stuff like throw a ball and catching it too. Don't let them feel that you weren't around for them while they were growing up.
4. Do what you love and success will follow. Don't worry about failing during the first few tries. Enjoy what you like to do and keep on doing it.
5. Green is a powerful color. It means life. It can be seen in the trees and the forests. It's in the garden and the plants. It is the most important element in nature even though it's not actually counted as one of them.
6. Be OK with your roots. Don't be ashamed of your father or mother. Neither of any other relatives. Embrace your family heritage and be truly proud of where you come from.
7. Don't do evil. Your loved ones will leave you if you do so. Evil people do not get away with their evil acts. As shown in the movie, your whole family life can be messed up if the father is an evil doer.
8. Know what you are good at. Just because everyone else seems to be having some obvious skills and talents that doesn't mean that you have nothing. Take the smallest thing that you are good at and focus your efforts on becoming the best at it.
9. The right mentor means everything. Master Wu (played by Jackie Chan) is such an exceptional teacher to the Ninja kids. He teaches them not only to be a good Ninja warrior but also about valuable life lessons.
10. Do not take shortcuts to success. Or for that matter in anything. We live in times when everyone is searching for hacks, tricks and ways to lessen efforts and be successful. But, in reality, there are no shortcuts in life. So stay on the right path. Never go on the wrong one.
11. Treat others nicely. Be nice to your subordinates and colleagues. Or I could say "What goes around comes around". The villain of the movie kept treating his military generals badly. Firing them for little reasons. Well, later in the film, his subordinates take their revenge on him.
That's it. It was loads of fun to watch this movie in 3D on the big screen. It made all the action a lot livelier. This movie is certainly one that every little boy must watch along with his friends and parents at the theater or at home on DVD. It's a winner all the way.
