Lessons Learnt From Prison Break Season – I


Prison Break’s been my Bhagvad Gita for past 6 years.

I’ve seen Season 1 three times now and every time I watch how the ‘Fox River’ convicts try their wits out to escape from the prison, each time it apprise me with a new learning about human nature. Prison Break has surely been a blessing in disguise for me.

Through this post, I would like to share some of the lessons I learnt from this classic sitcom:

1.       Believe In yourself: keep faith in yourself. Do not lose your focus. Remember, the more you focus on your strengths the lesser you worry about your weaknesses. Before you hit the road, say to yourself, ‘I’ll be a success today’.

2.       Keep fighting: it may be a lost cause but do not give up so easily. Keep up the fighting spirit. If you believe in yourself and are ready to face challenges, keep working on it. The journey may appear to be tiresome and difficult but you never know you may be very close to the finishing line. Winner is not someone who has never seen failure. Winner is the person who rises each time he falls. Never accept defeat.

Winston Churchill said, ‘if you’re going through HELL, keep going’.

Remember ‘Everyday above ground is a blessing

3.       Learn from your mistakes: everyday is a challenge. If you fail today, do not be disheartened. After all, HOPE is not such a bad thing.

4.       There’s cynicism and there’s optimism: Be the one who says 1 after 0 not -1 before it. Finding a fault in others is easy but learning from your own mistakes is not an easy job.

5.       Make a Plan: Learn to set some goals for yourself and chart out a plan how you want to fulfil your goals. Have vision in life.

Vision [Definition]: “The power of imagination
Imagine beyond the boundaries. Learn to live life free and without worries. Only then one can have a clear vision.

6.       Accept Good with gratitude and bad without complaints: Accept Good with gratitude to god and bad without complaints. Stop complaining about the situation or the circumstances. Remember it’s you and only you who brought you in this mess. And it’s only you who can find ways to come out of it. Keep hanging!

These were my findings from the first season of prison break. Hope you enjoyed the post.

  2. rahul, i have never watched this show, and i knew nothing about it till i saw your post. i am glad i did not next it since i saw it was about a tv show, that too one i did not know much about. then i read through and i realized what a wonderful post it was. the lessons you have imbibed from the show are truly no less than what one can get from a work like the gita. the examples, quotes, and explanations really made it a great read. my day is made, and guess what, i might even look out for the show itself. thanks again, rahul, for sharing.

  7. I have not seen this serial. Nor have I seen any other serial on TV in the recent past. I think the second point of not giving up is very important. People don't realize how close they are to winning, when they give up.
