5 Life Lessons We Learnt From “Moana”

Auli'i Cravalho in Moana

Moana is the Pixar movie for bright-eyed, adventure seeking souls who are charged with wanderlust and curiosity. If you are one of these people, here are 5 life lessons you can learn from the film.

Home is wherever your people are

Whether you are in the village harvesting coconuts or out at sea trying to find a new paradise, is it your community that bring you home. Your parents, your crazy grandma, your demi-God best friend or even your stupid chicken.

The island is just what you need

Everything you need is right there in front of you. Food from the soil and shelter from the trees and your own two feet. Your environment will nurture you so long as you treat it kindly.

Take the leap

You won’t know how far you’ll go until you take the leap. Be brave. How are you going to cross the ocean if you’re too afraid to lose sight of the shore?

We are wayfinding all the time

Let your instincts guide you. Be open. Finding who you are takes practice, time, some challenging conquests and many, many rough storms. It’s just about learning how to get your boat sailing again when you fail.

You don’t have to be a Demi-God to conquer the world

You do not need a superpower to morph into what you want. Although having a giant shark head could be cool. You just need a bit of resilience and to believe that you really can do anything if you put your heart into it.
