Success Lessons from Kung Fu Panda: Inner Peace and Accepting Who You Really Are

Success Lessons from Kung Fu Panda: Inner Peace and Accepting Who You Really Are

“The only thing that matters is what you choose to be now”
Po from Kung Fu Panda

The number 2 film on my “all time most watched” list is Kung Fu Panda 2.  It was my daughter’s favourite during many of our travels together over the last decade.  It is a film that had something for a young girl and something for her father.

We begin with Po, the Kung Fu Panda, frustrated with his life and feeling lost.  Over the course of 90 minutes, Po learns to accept who he is and find inner peace.

Any guesses on the film I have watched most in my entire life?  Check out this comment on the blog post for the answer!


  1. Hi Conor – If for some intergalactic reason you have not watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy (books are great) you should. After 9/11 I was speaking with an uber successful wealth manager who shared that if his kids were going off to war, this would be the movie to watch. Good vs. evil at its core, choosing courage and hope over despondency! To quote my good friend Gandalf, “All you have to decide is what to do in the time that is given to you.”
    Wishing you & yours an incredible SEASON!


    1. I have watched Lord of the Rings… I loved the books when I was 10,11 years old – I read everything by Tolkien… some very weird stuff in there. Good reminder for some netflix watching over this christmas break 😉


    1. If I let him, my son would do the same! 😉
      Have you seen Wonder yet? That’s a good one on accepting yourself as you are, overcoming obstacles and that nothing ever is what it seems


      1. I haven’t seen Wonder. My daughter (10) and I read all the Wonder books together and had so many wonderful conversations about what it must be like to be Auggie, why kids act cruelly or kindly, what people are trying to achieve. I loved the discussions that the book triggered with my daughter.


What do you think? Let me know you were here ;-)
