Lessons From Game Of Thrones Season 1 [part 1]

If you've not heard of Game of Thrones, here's a gist.
There are seven kingdoms with each serving for power. Each one has its own tricks and tactics for dealing with the other. At the end of it all, it's about who gets to sit on the ultimate throne. I guess that's what life is all about, right? Not really.

In season one, we are introduced to the key players. From Robert Baratheon, King of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, his wife Cersei Lannister who is the secret lover of her twin Jamie Lannister, and the killer of the previous king, and also has 3 kids with Cersei. 

The previous ruling house's king Targaryen had Daenerys and Viserys as his kids who had  to  go into  exile to avoid being killed. 

The king, Robert Baratheon apparently came to power by getting rid of the then king, with the help of Jaime Lannister who was the king's hand. Jamie's role in the killing of King    was supposedly to prevent the '' Mad King ''  from destroying Kings Landing, the seat of power. 

At the end of the season,  we discover several things about each character. So,  to make this series interesting, I'll share a few lessons today and take it from there. 

Lesson 1

Have Allies : Each character in the drama has an ally. Whether for good or evil,  it was these allies that contributed to the success or failure of the characters. However,  the lesson from the allies is that it's better to have both open and hidden allies in life. The hidden ones can always come to your aid without notice. The open ones would also support you but within some limits. 
Lesson 2

Listen to Instructions. Cersei and Jamie were caught in the sex act by Bran,  the son of Ned Stark, who was Robert's friend. Stark was the warden of the kingdom of Winerfell. Jamie attempted to kill Bran for fear of being reported but that failed. This event however was a catalyst for several other mistakes on the part of Bran's mom,  Lady Catelyn. Her husband cautioned her against reacting to the incident but did she listen? No! 

If she had obeyed the husband,  she would have eventually found out the culprit and saved her life too. 

Each decision we make,  has repercussions on the lives of others whether we know it or not. 

Had Jamie and Cersei not done the deed at Winterfell, Bran wouldn't have been paralysed to make his mom act too. 

The action of each character impacted the others. Let's learn from this. 
Lesson 3

Be ready for anything at all in life! Ned Stark manages to find out the truth about Jamie's affair but that also cost his life. Lesson? Be wise in your dealings and trust no one!

Lesson 5

Make hay whilst the sun shines! Littlefinger and Varys act as '' watchers'' of the other characters noting their weaknesses and strengths. These men used every opportunity to establish a foothold and that kept that alive! 

We shall continue in the season 2.
