Life Lessons from SpongeBob Squarepants

21 Sep

Everything in the universe has a purpose. Indeed, the invisible intelligence that flows through everything in a purposeful fashion is also flowing through you. The only difference between successful and unsuccessful people is reflection. Highly successful people reflect and try to find meaning in everything. I myself love watching cartoons a lot and especially SpongeBob is one of my inspirations. With a bit of reflection and jot down some lessons which I recently learned from this cute cartoon character.

1) Be the eternal optimist

The guy or the Sponge I would say always sees the best in everything. Your thinking really shapes your reality and because SpongeBob look for the best he gets it.

2) Value people

SpongeBob knows what friendship means. SpongeBob knows that respect and putting people first are two most important things in building strong relationships.

3) Be an original

Too many of us are afraid to be ourself, so we give up our dreams to follow the crowd. But the only place the crowd will lead us is exit. Have the courage to be true to yourself.

4) Laugh and have fun

There is no point of being successful and sad, makes no sense. Yes reach for mountain top but enjoy the climb along your way up. So have big time fun as you cherish your dream.
