Have you watched the live action Aladdin movie starring Will Smith as the Genie. It is everything I hoped and more.
Pretty sure, it must have reminded most of your childhood memories. Apart from being a cult childhood classic, Aladdin the movie teaches us some very valuable lessons.
Life lessons we should all live and follow. Here they are.
Lesson 1 – Be Yourself
Both Aladdin and Jasmine teach us to be who we are.
Do not try to be someone else or to conform to what others perceive us to be. Be who you are meant to be.
Be true to who are and live your life with honesty.
Lesson 2 – You are Greater than your Situation
You must believe in yourself always, even more so when others doubt you and discourage you.
Remember, even Walt Disney himself was repeatedly discouraged by others time and time again, yet he believed in his dreams and he believed in himself.
After all, diamonds are produced from the same minerals like coal. Although you are not yet fully polished, you are still a “diamond in the rough”!
Lesson 3 – Value Friendship
Aladdin taught us the importance of friendship both good and bad.
The sultan learned the hard way that not all friends can be trusted such as with Jarfar. The sultan put all his trust in him only to have him betray him.
However, Aladdin showed what true friendship really was when he set the Genie free with his last wish. Aladdin chooses friendship over material possessions.
Lesson 4- Don’t be Greedy
Skipping way ahead, when Aladdin meets Genie and discovers that he will be granted three wishes, Genie breaks down the rules for him.
Now, adding limitations on wishes in these situations is an age-old literary technique, probably to avoid huge story plot lines, yeah?
Regardless, not that Aladdin complains much, but it is a good life rule to not be greedy when someone is offering you a bunch of free stuff and/or is about to grant your wishes.
