Life Lessons from Money Heist

If that deep meaningful life quotes that we see on Pinterest, would have been inspired from this amazing, thrilling, full of suspense (add 100 other adjectives) series called Money Heist AKA La Casa De Papel which is a Spanish Tv series on Netflix, then it would have been something like this-

“Have backup plans ready like the Professor”

“Live life like Berlin”

“Negotiate like Raquel”

“Prioritize your relations like Denver”

“Stay focused towards your goal like Nairobi”

“Raise your opinions like Tokyo”

“Learn from your experiences like Rio”

“Big body with a soft heart is the best combination like Helsinki”

What I learned from Money Heist

Money Heist

I love to watch meaningful shows, movies, read books that leave a deeper impact on my life. And after I finish it, I have this urge to write about it. Similarly, Money Heist taught me a lot apart from its engrossing content which literally made me an insomniac for quite a while (not complaining, it was all worth it)

1. I learned the importance of intensely observing every minute detail of what you’re truly passionate about and how you should do everything possible to achieve that. (like the professor knew exactly everything about the heist and had planned out almost everything)

2. I learned that no matter how emotionally detached you portray yourself to be, but in the end, you’ll find your troop who’ll be your ride or die at every step! (like the professor who got attached to his every member of the heist team in the end)

3. I learned that it doesn’t matter what will happen to you in the future, whether you’ll survive or not, the only thing that truly matters is ‘the NOW’, the present moment, and how you should value every single moment of your present. (like Berlin)

4. I learned that if you are working with the group, then it is better to stay together, else your enemies can use that against you to tear you down. There is strength in staying together. (like the entire group stayed together during the heist no matter how many times they fought)

Be prepared for every Possibility

You have to think practically and put your emotions aside whenever the situation demands. Because emotions can cloud your judgments, your hard work can all go to waste if you let your emotions rule over you.

If the professor would have stopped after he thought Raquel died, everybody in his group would have felt lost and would have died too. Instead, he made himself ready to fight back with his other backup plan.

So, if you are going to step into something, then you should be all in, like 100% into it. Because half efforts will not take you far enough.

Be ready for your plan backfiring you, for your plan going haphazard or any other difficulty.

Life doesn’t always go as we Plan

Even though the professor had thought about every possibility and had every backup plan ready still certain thing went wrong, which he never deduced (like the death of people who became his family)

But life goes on. It doesn’t stop for anybody. You have to pick yourself up at the end of the day and keep on moving.

If Denver would have stopped digging that hole after his father (Moscow) died, they would have never escaped. He had to move on no matter how tough it was.

To sum up my enthusiasm for Money Heist, I’ll just say that be ready for every possibility but still have an adjusting nature, because life is unpredictable. Just enjoy while you’re alive!

Fully concur with you on the learning’s one can imbibe and just not leave it as beautiful story watched.
You have very well articulated the learning’s in context of real life usage if one wish to do so.

I’ve not seen the show but a lot of the lessons ring true. Live in the moment. Yes. As long as that moment isn’t 4 am.
