Concise News has identified 10 Inspiring life lessons that can be learned from seasons of Game of Thrones that directly or indirectly relate to you and the situations you will encounter on your trip to success.
Whether you are an avid watcher (or reader) of this series, or you have never even heard of it, check out these life lessons you can learn from Game Of Thrones.
1. Don’t Let Anyone Make You Feel unimportant
Tyrion Lannister is the laughing stock of King’s Landing for something he can’t control, his stature is the major cause of his predicament which leads people to insults him and sometimes pierce him. Despite all this, he doesn’t let it pull him down.
“Let them see that their words can cut you, and you will never be free of the mockery. If they want to give you a name, take it and make it your own. Then they can’t hurt you with it anymore.”
Tyrion is one of the most beloved characters among Game of Thrones fans, and he is an inspiration and amazing creature to anyone who has to overcome an obstacle that they can’t control.
2. You Can Make A Difference
Game of Thrones has no shortage of strong characters, but some of them didn’t start out that way. Daenerys, for example, was once a meek girl, controlled by her overbearing brother. But in season four seasons she is a queen who has released thousands of slaves from custody and has taken a stance against human slavery.
If you believe strongly in someone or care passionately about something beyond the ordinary, but you feel like you are just one person who can’t make a difference, think again. Take a leaf from Daenerys’s book. Be strong and take a stance, and with enough passion, you can make a difference.
3. Everybody Makes Mistakes
Aemon, maester is a leader of the Night’s Watch for many, many years and he understand that no one is above mistake. Although, Fans know that one of the most well-known rules of those who watch the Wall is that they must not have relations with women so they wouldn’t be distracted from their duties.
When someone points out that a member of the Night’s Watch, has slept with a woman, Aemon responds with this: “If we beheaded every Ranger who lay with a girl, the Wall would be manned by headless men.”
Aemon understands that everyone makes mistakes, and punishing for the sake of punishing can hurt more than help. Try to forgive when those around you inevitably make mistakes they can’t help.
4. Be Loving In Any Situation You Find Yourself
Hodor is known as one of the most endearing characters of the Game of Thrones series, because he is a fun-loving and simple man who can’t say anything other than his name(hodor, hodor, hodor, hodor, hodor, hodor). He has a stupendous heart and will do anything for those he loves. But he also faces almost anything with a big smile on his face.
5. Be Loyal And Honest About Things
If you have been following the show closely, you know that recently, we learned that Jorah had been betraying his queen, Daenerys, by spying on her and sending her plans to her enemies. And the two of them had been practically attached to the hip for years. Major party foul. Daenerys sent a crying Jorah away in disgrace.
This deep revelation teaches us some things, be loyal to who care about you, be honest to those you care about, and when you haven’t been loyal, fess up. Explain and apologize. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
6. Treat Every Day Like It’s Your Last
Petyr Baelish, also known as Littlefinger, may be a notorious and somewhat seedy character, but he said something during the course of the season that really stuck.
He said “Everybody dies sooner or later. And don’t worry about your death. Worry about your life. Take charge of your life for as long as it lasts.” What a great quote that reminds us to always take life by its horns.
7. Life Is All About Family
The movie of game of thrones all boils down to just one thing, you and your family. Care like the STARKS, protect like the LANNISTERS . Your friends will come and go, that childhood love of yours will vanish , your crush will crushed a long time ago. Who then will actually be left? No one else apart from those priceless beings who are there for us everyday of our life (Family).
Don’t run behind those Joffery , Shae , Margeary and the likes because sooner or later your eyes would look around for Catelyn, Sansa, Cersei , Jamie , Ned . Just make sure it is not too late.
8. Never Too Late To Redeem Yourself
Remember, no matter what, some people will always judge you. But believe me It is never too late to turn around and redeem yourself. Let them know you are a changed person, different from the way they perceive you before.
You could be king slayer to some. A bastard to all family to some. A protector to one while butcher for other. Everyone is right from their perspective. No one is completely right or wrong , morally fit or unfit.
9. You Don’t Get To Choose The One You Love.
Game of thrones teaches that people you end up falling in love with might be the wrong person. They say opposites attract but then compatibility is a thing. And then just because he/she loves the same movie/food/random bizarre crap you do doesn’t mean they are the one.
Falling in love with the opposite sex just happens. There is no saying of you in it. It simply happens and no matter what that person be at times to you, you have already fallen in love with them.
If You vividly remember when Tyrion was asking Jamie Lannister that “What is it that you see in Cersei apart from your own reflection”. Whereas Jamie Lannister could not respond, However, for few souls, it is always worth taking that extra mile or risk, a bit more of effort, a pinch more of pain even though they are the one’s to make you go through all this.
10. Communication Is A Vital Key
Jon Snow did the terrible mistake to help the wildlings and bring them to Castle Black. Jon’s decision was well-intentioned and kind because he saved a ton of lives but his “brothers” in the Night Watch didn’t think the same. The Night Watch was fighting for years with the wildlings and many of the Night’s Watch brothers were killed in these fights.
Even the fact that he was lord commander of the Night Watch didn’t make its members accept his decision to help the wildlings. They considered him a traitor.
However, Jon Snow dies in Game of Thrones because of his lack of understanding the feelings of the other men in the Night Watch. He knew that they would feel betrayed but he didn’t do anything to fix the situation.Instead he was betrayed by a gathered group of the Night’s Watch men who stabbed him until he fall dead on the ground.
