For the weekend, I wanted to share this clip from the game Final Fantasy XIII.
This is a scene between two characters, Lightning and Snow. Lightning is trying to save her sister, Serah, while Snow wants to save her too so that he can marry her. Lightning doesn’t trust Snow at first, but through the story, they work together and she learns to trust him more.
The reason why I posted this was something Lightning says in this scene to Snow, who wonders if they’ll ever see Serah again:
Don’t go there. No room for doubt.
Lightning is a strong and determined woman, and although she has her doubts, she focuses on her goal to save Serah. She has doubts, but she doesn’t listen to them. Thus, in the end, she saves her sister.
I think that’s true with a lot of things in life: if you want to accomplish something important to you, you can’t leave any room for doubt in your mind. Once you start to doubt, you will start to give up.
A good lesson from Lightning, I think. 🙂
