5 LESSONS ABOUT SUCCESS THAT I LEARNT FROM STAR WARS #CircuitBreakerSG
Sylvia Foo, an ex-lecturer from DAS Academy wrote an inciteful article about the lessons she learned about success from the Star Wars movie. She wrote, ”Won over by this genre of movie, I waited with bated breath for the next two instalments in the then Star Wars trilogy. I was aghast when Darth Vader revealed he was Luke Skywalker’s daddy turned bad and like everyone else, I cheered when the bad daddy overcame the dark side in him to destroy the evil Emperor and rescue Luke.
Many years have passed, and the initial Star Wars trilogy has expanded to include prequels and sequels to the delight or dismay of hardcore fans. Nevertheless, it is the original movie that is the inspiration for my present article because it left such an impression when I was a teenager who was struggling with puberty and self-doubt.”
5 LESSONS ABOUT SUCCESS
|SUCCESS COMES WITH PERSEVERANCE AND PRACTICE.
Not everyone will be on board with what you are doing but Luke Skywalker, having a supportive mentor or teacher can help speed the learning journey.
|SUCCESS COMES WITH PLANNING AND CONSIDERATION OF ONE’S STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES.
|SUCCESS OFTEN COMES AT SOME KIND OF COST OR SACRIFICE.
That sacrifice can be in terms of working harder at something you are not good at and giving up time to have fun.
|SUCCESS COMES TO THE YOUNG AN UNTRIED TOO.
Even though Luke was new to fighting a civil war, he was key in the destruction of the Death Star.
|BEING DIFFERENT CAN LEAD TO SUCCESS.
Did you know that the writer and director of Star Wars, George Lucas, was rejected by several Hollywood studios at first because they considered the storyline to be unconventional?
