And that, kids, is the story of How I Met Your Mother.
How I Met Your Mother became an instant hit following the life of the hopeless romantic, Ted Mosby together with his four friends, Lily, Marshal, Robin, and Barney. One of the reasons why it was a success is because of the relatable life of the 5 characters. Let’s take a look back at some of the lessons that Ted Mosby and the gang left us.
Lay everything on the table
Have you ever looked back at a moment and thought I should have done that? It sucks right? One of the hardest things that you’ll experience in life is having that what if moment. And it is hard I know, I’ve been there. One of the lessons that we can learn from the series is making that mistake and finding out if it is one. You leave everything in the table and take the leap. At least when you look back years from now you won’t feel regret because you know you tried. As Lily Aldrin said:
…The biggest mistake would be not to make that mistake because then you’ll go your whole life not knowing if something was a mistake or not. – Lily Aldrin
Just live your life
No matter how hard you plan for your life, sometimes life just goes the other way around. Let’s take a look at the life of Big Fudge, Marshal Eriksen. He always planned to be an environmental lawyer, but instead, it turned the other way around and worked for corporate companies. And that’s okay. Life is not something you can plan every detail of it, you just have to live it. So live your lives and do your best in how it turns out.
Don’t dwell on the past
Life just goes forward never backward but sometimes we can’t let go of the past because it gives us this sense of nostalgia or that comfortable feeling. When you look back at the past, it seems easy but it is easy because you have seen the outcome. And not seeing the outcome scares us. But life only moves forward so embrace what is to come. If we keep looking back at the past we might miss the great things that are happening in the present. So keep moving forward!
Be your own hypeman
It’s gonna be legen.. wait for it, dary! Barney Stinson is known for being legendary. But the biggest lesson that we can learn from Mr. Impossimpoble himself is that always root for yourself. In life, no one will push you to achieve great things but yourself. Focus on yourself and devote positive energy by hyping yourself up in situations that you don’t feel good about your self. So look in the mirror and tell yourself that you’re awesome!
If it’s scary, it’s good
Are you feeling scared in life? No? Then you’re not taking chances! And if you’re not taking chances, you might miss a few opportunities in life. If you feel scared it means you have a lot to lose which means you’re doing something great in your life. So if you feel scared to apply for your next job or start that business you are planning then it’s good because it means you have something to lose which makes us determined in life and will bring out the best in us. So go shake off that scary feeling and take chances.
