By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

The 300 Spartans Knew a Lot About Personal Development

By emulating this attitude you can get a good share of their strength and become a 21st century Spartan!! Are you wondering what’s the relation between the '300' spartans and personal development? Just read on!

Quotes from '300'

Lesson 1:Flexibility
Messenger The thousand nations of the Persian Empire descend upon you. Our arrows will block out the sun!

Stelios: Then we will fight in the shade.

Facing an obstacle while trying to achieve a goal won’t make us change our goals. we will just change our strategy. As you can see, the 300 Spartans were flexible!!

If you faced a big problem don’t cry or change your goals but just adapt and change your strategy.( See the article Flexibility for more information on how to become flexible).

Lesson 2:Having No False Beliefs
Spartan King Leonidas: Immortals??... We'll put their name to the test.

Those men with steel masks were called the immortals because it was widely believed that they cannot die in battles but the Spartans didn’t just accept that common belief without testing it. What about you? How many immortals do you have in your life? How many false beliefs are controlling your life?

Thinking that you are a loser, ugly or inadequate may just be a false belief that needs to be tested. just like the Spartans tested the false belief of the immortals. (see the article about False beliefs for more information).

Lesson 3:Positive Thinking
Dilios: The enemy outnumber us a paltry 3 to 1, a match for any Greek. This day we rescue a world from mysticism and tyranny and usher in a world brighter than anything we can imagine. Give thanks men to Leonidas and the brave 300, TO VICTORY!

The Spartans were outnumbered by a ratio of three to one yet they were still aiming for victory!! What about you? What do you do as soon as small problem appears in your life? Do you become defeated before you even go to the battle?!! Be a positive thinker, be a Spartan.

Lesson 4:Persistence
Spartan King Leonidas: My children, gather round! No retreat, no surrender; that is Spartan law and by Spartan law we will stand and fight... and die. A new age has begun. An age of freedom, and all will know, that 300 Spartans gave their last breaths to defend it!.

We decided to do something and we won't turn back or change our minds whatever happens!! Seems that the Spartans were persistent too in addition to all of the other good traits they had. Try to be like them and don’t retreat whatever happens to you.

Lesson 5:Self Confidence

Dilios:We did what we were trained to do, what we were bred to do, what we were born to do!

The 300 Spartans knew well the limits of their powers, they were confident in their abilities. Trust your abilities or learn how to trust in them in order to become a Spartan.

How to Become A Spartan

Even if you didn’t pay attention to these phrases, your subconscious mind stored them.

Whether you liked the movie or not, your personality improved by a tiny bit after watching it. The media you get yourself exposed to strongly affects your personality on the long run, that’s why you should be very picky when choosing your movies, music and and reading material.

Spartans weren’t strong because of their physical strength, as you saw the Arcadians were well built too but they ran away. The 300 Spartans were strong because of being persistent, self confident, flexible, positive thinkers and because they had no false beliefs.

Learn these simple skills and you will become a Spartan too; you won't fight the Persians this time, instead you will force your way through life's battles until you reach what you want.
