I have been watching the Step Up movie series for some time now. Among the movie series, one that has inspired me so much is no other than Step Up Revolution. Its not about the dancing or music; check out other series and you will see that the music and choreography is nice as well.
What makes Step Up Revolution stand out for me is that I can pick one or two lessons from this movie. So what are these lessons? You will soon find out.
If you have not watched the movie, I encourage you to do so. The movie describes a group called The Mob whose mission is to make an impact to the world through dancing.
It will take forever to narrate the movie so let me get to the chase and here are the four lessons I learned from Step Up Revolution.
Challenge Status Quo
I am a fan of questioning standards in a good way and that’s what makes me love the movie. The Mob believed in breaking the rules though how they implemented it was controversial to some people. I am not an advocate for breaking the law and I am in no way supporting it. However, I am saying that we should learn to embrace change and this cannot happen unless we start asking the why questions.
Get Your Vision Right
There is a saying that the beginning of your journey to success, starts with a Vision. This is exemplified by the Mob who created a great vision out of their passion and talent; not so many people can do this easily. However, we see the power of vision in this story and how it took the Mob to great heights
Power of a Team
Though vision is an important ingredient to success, a good team is necessary too. The Mob had an arsenal of talented members from the Dj Penelope , Artist Mercury , camera man to the stunt guys. These guys were excellent in their skills; just imagine being able to paint in less than 5 min or carve a sculpture quickly from glass. It’s no wonder they were able to do amazing things together. You need a great team to achieve great things.
Innovation is Key
So they had a great vision, great team and entered a video contest and got 10 million views on YouTube. How did they do it? Innovation.
They danced in unlikely places such as in a restaurant, on cars and the museum but that was not all; they showed the whole world that they can use dance to do a safe protest.
Do you want to make an impact, learn to innovate.
Significant Changes Do Matter
What the Mob learnt in the end is that its not easy to change the world but you can make a significant change which was saving their neighborhood from extinction.
