How Vikings can inspire your life?⛵️

For the people who know me well, I am bad at two things :

1. NOT WATCHING TV SERIES

2. NOT GOOD AT PLAYING COMPUTER GAMES

Oh my! Did I say that it was bad, not doing these things? Yes I feel so. Because

there are a lot of opportunities to learn something here. For Instance, Game of Thrones had changed me in some aspects. If you wanted to know how it influenced me, you find it here. Although the inspiration started from an Exhibition, one force started to push me constantly apart from the obvious addiction, which is – “Learning Swedish”. I watch the shows with swedish subtitles so that I get to learn a lot of this new language.

Slowly and steadily I watched one episode after another. Being in Sweden, the land of Vikings, there was at least a little inspiration in me to know more of the history of Vikings. It shall not be more dramatic than watching this series, Vikings! This man fascinated me a lot – Ragnar Lothbrok!

As the series progressed, I started to understand the theme song – “Give me more, give me more, give me more. If I had all I could love you, if I had a voice I would sing! After the night when I wake up, I’ll see what tomorrow brings!” – filled with deep meaning.

Ragnar Lothbrok portrays himself as a perfect leader for his people! Highly ambitious, has thirst for knowledge, a burning desire to make lives of his people better. The following lessons can be drawn from the series for ones who wanted to taste success after success!

1. Being good at one thing – It helps to completely capitalize on your resource giving you a leverage in bigger negotiations!

2. Thirst for New knowledge – Learning something new opens up lots of gates of opportunities which some are sometimes capable of deciding your future career!

3. Set the bars high again and again – the only way to make meaningful progress is to break your own records time after time.

4. Be an excellent observer – Having a bird’s eye on the people around you (everyone including friends, acquaintance and relations) will always help you to discover hidden truths and wants of other people.

5. Focus on the process and not the positions – When the process is given much attention, one day you shall be adorned with fancy positions!

6. Being extremely good at convincing – Having strong belief about your standing and ability to develop amazing convincing skills.

7. Spend some significant time with yourself to ponder over the past to learn the failures and strategies the futre.

8. Lead by example – The best leader is one who says Let’s do it rather than saying Do it!
