7 Personal Development Lessons From Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I caught “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” on Saturday night and just wanted to share some lessons I got from the movie…

1) We all face conflicts, dilemmas and obstacles now and then. That is a given. It's how we handle them that makes the difference.

2) If you like someone, tell him/her. Otherwise how would he/she know?

3) Choices have consequences.

4) Sometimes, you need someone to push you to do the things that you must do… that you don't want to do.

5) Beliefs are extremely powerful – You don't need to drink a lucky potion to be “lucky”. You just need to believe you did. Actually it's in you all along – You can do anyhing you set out to do… All you need is to believe in yourself.

6) Encouragement is important. Remember to give it generously.

7) Life goes on…

Feel free to leave a comment to add on lessons you have learned from the movieĀ =)

Thanks for the addition, James. Yes teamwork is very important… very few people (if any) succeed on their own!

I thought the movie was Incredible, for many reasons. I never read the book beforehand and maybe that’s why.
Great lessons you pointed out.
If I was to include one more. Teamwork. Even the best need the rest of the team at times to overcome obstacles.

Have a Incredible Awesome Day
With Love & Light
