The Equalizer 2 was good, but didn’t bring much new to the table that we didn’t see in part 1. We discuss both of them and the lessons we took away in this episode.
Lessons Learned from The Equalizer Parts 1 & 2:
Always be aware of your surroundings.
- Know where the entrances and exits, the people in the room and any possible threats. Also, look for weapons to defend yourself with.
Be who you are in this world.
- Be proud to be the person you are. Play to your strengths and be happier.
Always negotiate anything you have to pay for.
- Miles and Robert haggled back and forth on the price of the paining and they both got a fair deal. Just ask the question, “Are you flexible on that price?”
If you can do something about it, do it because you can.
- Robert helps because he’s got the skills.
Don’t pick a fight with an unknown entity.
- Denzel might seem like easy pickings, but you learn to your detriment that he’s anything but.
Progress, not perfection.
- This is what we should all strive for. Just a little better every day.
You can be a victim or learn from your painful experiences.
- “There’s two types of pain: pain that hurts and pain that alters.”
Always be nice to anyone that has access to your toothbrush.
