A Warrior Within
300 – A movie speaks about the brave Spartans who stood for their independence and against the slavery of the tyranny ruler of that era. All who watched this movie can straight away relate my points, yet others too can get what’s the essence I talk about. Because I write no review of the movie but food for thoughts what we can take from the legendary tale of Spartans.Note and Disclaimer: Kindly view this as constructive insights and definitely not as anti-Persian propaganda. I have carefully put my words and taken this just as an inspirational movie story without giving any justification or support to any side based on history. I just had seen it as a Movie, like a parable story.

Count Your Words
Words always determine the way how one wants to be treated. Words are so powerful and can be destroyable too.
A messenger from the tyrant King loses his life for his wrongly led words.
“Remember us” this words by the Spartan king gathered 10000 and 30000 Spartans and Greeks respectively. Words are so powerful, which fueled some just 300 brave warriors to shake the glorified tyranny. Always count your words. Make your words always wise and meaningful.
Build a Potent Team
Unity, Spirit and Quality of the team has every role for success not just an individual leader can do it all. The king says “Respect and Honor your soldier by your side” to his son. Respect and Honor: Does not matter whether you are superior or senior, always have respect for your team member who stands by your side, who trust you; you can earn respect and honor only by giving it.
Ensure you analyze each possibility of Weak links in the team and equip your team to face adversities effective. This was clearly shown when the Spartan king denies the traitor to be a part of his fighting men on request. Impotent member always weakens the side. But hold on, there are always other ways one can contribute if not in one way, the king offered the one with disability but he turned traitor in the later part, which eventually lead to the glory death of the 300. Remember, traitors are worst and hated more than one hate the enemies.
Lead From Front
In chess only the pawns go first and the king last. Real leadership starts with the quality of leading by example. Like every other warrior, like brave Spartan the Spartan king always led from front and took the enemies, so his leadership threatened the enemy whose army just shattered as pack of cards. We are not in bloodshed wars now, but wars as tough as them. So if you are holding on to any Vision, lead from front as example.
Value Your Woman
Well there are epilogues and sayings we hear all the time there is a woman behind every successful man. Success is not in Victory, success is not in money, the true success lies in the earning of such soul and respect. The true success is when you have a woman to hold on to you think and thin and believe you always. Success is when you have a woman to be proud about. The Mighty Spartan king’s last words on the verge of death “My Queen, My Wife, My Love” Do we have that wonderful love and value for our beloved soul mate to make a final tribute, when death is so close from hundreds of arrows hailing from the skies? If yes, then you feel proud for valuing your woman. That stands as love for me in its very own true form.
Now a days I am seeing a worsening in the committed relationships and a trend to “move on” relationships. But we human are meant to be for true relation till end. Don’t let money, lust and other naive things ruin love between two souls. Seeing women as an object of lure seems common now, I am worried and annoyed of it. One cant do anything still some women stop using their body for feeding the lure. Men can still hold on to valuing women and Women can still hold on to be worthy for it. I have nothing more to say than leaving the choice to individuals.
Hold On To The Vision:
The last but not the least thought from this wonderful movie is “The Strong Belief in the VISION”. Adversities may come all the times put us on tests. Fear of death, but death is obvious one day. Then what do we fear for? Just hold on to the vision.
The Tyranny king surrounded the Mighty Spartan King Leonidas and asked him to kneel. He had everything in return to hold his supremacy not only over the Sparta but also the entire Greece. Had he given up? If he had done so there ended his legacy, we would have never listened his story by now. He took everything to make the tyrant king shed his blood before him embracing glory.
In our life too, in the pursuit of our ambition we are not alone, we are always a team. If you are a leader, your team will be formed automatically. Ensure as a leader you always remain as an inspiration and proud for your team. If you are a part of the team make your leader proud of you. The Spartan King conveys to the last soldier who dies next to him that he was honored to that he had lived by his side.
We are not facing any wars like them now. But we need so many warriors to fight many adversities more badly than wars. Corruptions, Unethical Businesses, Money starving society, Pollution, add up as many social problems you know here, everything is just a reflection of our own selves. We were the reasons, we are the cures. Remember what we leave behind for the future. So awaken the warrior inside you to fight your rage and selfish thoughts. Make life meaningful and Purposeful, Obvious you will get challenges. Just fight back like Spartans.
Everything comes across in our life leaves some thoughts. Only worthy few reaches our soul and imbibes us. Thoughts that carry a value, Thoughts that nurture a belief, Thoughts that make us hold and Thoughts that has life in it only remains with us forever.
Works such as movies are thousands in number but there are few inspires and leave some thoughts in my soul. They inspire me and thrives me to go on with some learning. I am penning my learning, brainwaves planted by some incredible works in my soul.
Hope it gives inspiration to you too. Good bye for now. I will be back with some other inspiration. Please share your feedback and Thanks for reading.
