As a kid I honored Po as a Kung Fu genius. It was my first time seeing an unusual Panda perform elite Kung Fu techniques while eating dumplings at the same time. Being born in the year 2000 I remember being 8 when the first Kung Fu Panda movie was released. The movie was a hit. I couldn’t help but to think to myself “How can such a chubby panda be so athletic?” ... “He eats, a lot, but he’s superior?” ..”I love it.” And he’s what the new generation would call a “G.O.A.T” greatest of all time. This is something I can fairly agree on.
Like all human beings Po wasn’t a perfect individual. Now yes, he was a Panda but a Panda with human-like traits. He was overlooked, mistreated, tempted to do bad, and what most people would consider a “lost cause” but he had purpose written all over him. He just didn’t see it. He faced several trials in the process of reaching his fullest potential. He failed many times but he would always get back up and that’s how he mastered his acquired skill. Through the pits of dark trials and error is where he found his true discovery. He doubted himself and his overall abilities but little did he know he was a dragon warrior all along.
In comparison to the popular main character “Po” in “Kung Fu Panda” this is many of us. It’s nearly the human nature of life. We are filled with an all time high and the next minute we are down bad. We are appreciated then we are unappreciated. Some fail gracefully, some ignore failure, some choose difference, some choose similarity, some try and try again, some give up, and some die. We either discover who we are through the storm or we take are dead dreams to the grave.
Here’s a few memorable quotes to hold onto for the long run as these relate to real world scenarios, ourselves, our minds, our purpose, and our destiny. There is something for everyone to learn and we can apply these different principles to our lives. There’s also a slight chance that this article may bring back waves of nostalgia to soak up for a few people. If you feel that someone else in your life needs to hear these quotes feel free to share it with them. Who knows, one little saying could change everything.
