Most of us love to watch movies. We watch it to entertain ourselves, but there are few movies which not only entertain but also give us life lessons. If we learn from such experiences, we may impact our lives. There is one such movie, which gave us entertainment as well as few lessons to implement so that we could learn and achieve something in life. That movie is “3 Idiots”, and we will discuss Seven Life – Lessons to Learn from Movie – 3 IDIOTS
“3 Idiots” is an old movie released in 2009, but the message given in the film is still relevant. In my opinion, there are at least seven lessons which we can implement in our life to groom ourselves and make a lasting impact on our minds.
So below mentioned are the SEVEN LIFE – LESSONS TO LEARN FROM MOVIE – 3 IDIOTS
- PHOBIA OF NEW PLACE AND PEOPLE
- LIFE IS A RACE
- NEVER QUIT
- KEEP LEARNING NEW THINGS
- EXCELLENCE OR SUCCESS
- AVOID CRAMMING
- FOCUS ON YOUR PRESENT
1. PHOBIA OF NEW PLACE AND PEOPLE
Most of us face this issue some or the other time that we get scared to encounter new people or places, which is also called “Neophobia.” Meeting new people or visiting new sites can be very harmful to our self-confidence. So one should never get scared of new places or people and should face it with confidence. It will give you courage and determination. Eventually, It will become your strength, and you will be able to do great things. As you know, behind many successes, one trait that works the most is confidence. So one should never have the phobia of a new place or people.
2. LIFE IS A RACE
As we know, the world has become so competitive that if we don’t keep pace with everyone, we won’t survive or will lag. In Today’s competitive world, if we don’t run fast, we will lose. And as it is said that nobody remembers the 2nd winner. But the question arises here is While trying to be 1st in the race, aren’t we lagging in the fundamental knowledge? Education is basically for learning and not to get good marks, money, etc. Yes!!! We should be competitive in the race, but at the same time, we should also enjoy it, without forgetting the aim of running. One should always consider that there is a race, and everyone is competing, but that competition should not be to get 1st rank but to achieve excellence in learning, knowledge in your field.
3. NEVER QUIT
There may be a lot of challenges in life, but one should never quit by surrendering to failure. In India, every day, approximately 10-12 students attempt suicide due to exam pressure. We have to face many hurdles to become successful in anything we do. Try to overcome it, and take the help of your family, friends. We should play with challenges and not with our life. Quitting can never be a choice in life. As some scholar has said, if you can’t run, walk if you can’t walk crawl but never quit.
4. KEEP LEARNING NEW THINGS
To achieve anything in life, we must be excited and enthusiastic about learning new things. Let that be Science, commerce, arts whichever stream. Be a ‘well educated’ person, not a ‘well trained’ like a machine. One should never stop that is learning in life. To keep with the ever-changing world, one should always LEARN, UNLEARN, and RELEARN to keep ourselves updated. This will keep you competitive in the world and your field of expertise.
5. EXCELLENCE OR SUCCESS
The most important lesson we get from this movie is that whether we should run behind success or Excellence. The answer is later because if you excel in something, success will automatically come to you. You can see so many examples in our day to day life that the person having Excellence in his or her field is always in demand and get the respect. And subsequently, success follows him/her.
As we see, “3 Idiots” characters say, We must take education with the intention of increasing our knowledge, If we want to succeed in anything we have to be excellent in it. Example Warren Buffett is a successful investor Today because he is excellent in investing. Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, M.S. Dhoni, Vishwanathan Anand, Mary Kom, Saina Nehwal, P.V. Sindhu are unbeaten in their respective sports field because they are excellent in their games. Chase excellence, success will automatically follow.
6. AVOID CRAMMING
Many of us experience that, if we don’t understand the subject, we start cramming. Cramming can give you marks in the exam, but it won’t help you to survive in practical life.
As you know, Parrot is the only bird who once learned and then started cramming it. Today many of us as a student also has the same tendency that we understand less and we cram it. Cramming can give you 100 marks, but your knowledge will be zero. Everyone feels that the world should label us as Intelligent person not “cramming parrot” So stop cramming and start understanding, whatever you study or learn.
7. FOCUS ON YOUR PRESENT
Every day, we experience that, we like to live in future or we live in the past, and we forget to live in the present, which not only create the problem in our family and professional life but also leave an impact on our mental life. It’s the problem that does not let us enjoy our beautiful life and will never let you get satisfaction. And we can keep crying for things which are not relevant or valuable today. This can impact our mental health and is the sole reason for not having happiness in our life. So one should always focus on the present, which will not just improve your mental health but also help you to focus on your personal and professional life.
I hope you liked the SEVEN LIFE – LESSONS TO LEARN FROM MOVIE – 3 IDIOTS, which may be helpful to you and your loved one. These lessons will help to nurture the right attitude and bring positivity in your life. And also will help you to boost your confidence which eventually takes you to greater heights in your personal and professional life.
