Lesson No 1 — Self-Belief

Self-belief is the positive feeling you have inside that you are capable of anything. You feel empowered, confident, and fueled with virility in the face of challenges and problems. And those who haven’t got it, those with negative self-belief, probably let many things go by undone.

Lesson No 4 — Trust and stick with your team

This lesson applies to all. Often when we have projects In school or have to work as a team In the office, there arise differences. Sometimes, everything comes on one member, or there will be someone trying to bring another person down. All this leads to one big thing — FAILURE.

Lesson No 6 — Plan every scenario and think well ahead of all the possible moves.

No one should know your game plan, system, and the market better than you. Professor created every possible scenario in his head and was always ahead. He knew all the moves police and agents were going to make and he planned his moves well ahead of time.

Lesson No 7 — To be able to change the system you have to get inside the system:

The Professor not only planned all of his actions but also sent his team members to the police tent with a strategy in his mind and to monitor all the moves by the police. Like Sun Tzu said: “Know your enemy as yourself and do not need to fear the outcome of a hundred battles.”

Lesson No 9 — Bigger the reward, the better the cause, the deeper the emotions, the better the team. There’s should be something everyone in the team should be motivated about.

Nothing beats a team that is unquestionably emotionally connected to a mission or cause. Professor connected the whole team of money heist to an emotional cause and that’s when his team members started sticking like spaghetti and teamed well towards a mission.

Lesson no 11 — As a leader, it's important to know when your team cannot perform what is assigned, the obstacles, and advise solutions to their problems:

The Professor knew that no one else is better at planning and coordinating so he did all the planning by himself. He knew Nairobi can manage the gold melter’s team well so he assigned that task to her, while Tokyo had leadership qualities so he let her lead the team when needed.

Lesson no 13 — Never fall in deep love with your enemy or team members. It can be disastrous. Have control over your emotions and keep them in check.

As they say, never mix business with emotions. The professor fell in love with the police officer and was about to get killed.

Tokyo fell in love with Rio and they both messed up things.

Likewise, other members of the team fell in love with the hostages and that led to an unfateful en...

Lesson no 14 — The more you feel, the more you love, the better the chances that you will ruin the plan. Love is an untimed feeling and it comes when it’s unplanned and for the least expected one.

Consistency and Persistence go a long way — Execution is more important than theory

Lesson no 17 — Execution is as important as theory. If there’s no action, there’s no progress. In the end, you will be left with nothing but theory:

Once you are done planning to the tiniest of the details and ready with an action plan then all you need to do is DO IT.

Lesson no 18 — When working in a team or even alone, always stick to the plan. Hit the ground running as per the plan and take responsibility for all your needs:

The professor gave all the necessary instructions on the board and steps to overcome all the obstacles, but if you are not hitting the ground running and or nothing works on the real ground then the theory fails.

Lesson no 20 — Hitting the Rock bottom will teach you many things in life and that’s the time you choose to feel defeated or lay your foundation of the success you always wanted to achieve.

In the heist, almost everyone fought for their survival when they reached their breakpoint. Everyone was crushed to the extreme and yet they survived because they fought hard for their survival.
