Avengers Endgame: Thanos has my Respect

This is not really a spoiler, it is just hard lessons from the Thanos way of doing things

Thanos is viewed as this terrible villain but I think he is the unspoken hero of the set of movies. While some would rather take lessons from any of the Avengers, I think the greatest lesson is from Thanos. The will of Thanos is stronger than any and every of the Avengers. Yes, the Avengers got back on their feet with a better strategy, but then Thanos is …

Thanos has deep convictions in his course of action and his competence is unrivalled. I think Endgame shows that Thanos is really and truly competent. It took one moment, one out of the 14 million that Dr Strange saw to give the ending that the series needed. And it cost lives. You would see whose when you see the movie.

Thanos has my respect, not whether he won or lost, but because he was ready to give it all it takes to get to his goal. And honestly, he got there after the infinity wars or hmmm, you’ll see what I mean in Endgame. Whatever failure you think Thanos had was due to the collaborative wills of the Avengers, plus luck. I don’t think he failed though. They had to merge their wills just to fight just his own will. Plus, in a one-on-one fight, Thanos is not anybody’s mate.

He knew what to do. He knew what it took. I am not praising him but I am saying if you are half as committed to your dream as Thanos is, your chance of failure would be 1 in 14 million. That is really a good odd in real life. Forget about the Avengers, move like Thanos.

The Avengers are celebrated because it is a movie. That’s what movies do. If it is a real-life situation, the story would not be exactly that way. People get it way wrong in a 1 in 10 odds. Now think about 1 in 14 million.

Hope is a dangerous thing. Be purposeful, be strategic and be ruthless in your execution. This is what wins in real life. Don’t build your life on one moment of luck, think Thanos and you will win.

I hope I didn’t spoil the movie for you if you’re yet to see it.

Cheers!
