Robin Hood is know for being the hero who takes from the rich and gives to the poor. His references in popular culture are quite varied, with the most famous being Salman Khan being nicknamed ‘Robinhood Pandey’ in Dabangg.
1. Stand up for the weak:
While Salman Khan played the role of a cop in Dabangg, Robin Hood was actually an outlaw whose house was burned down by the rich and powerful in England. He made it his mission to fight for the underprivileged who have been oppressed by the powerful people.
2. Never give up:
Robin Hood had to spend a life in the wild after his house was taken away from him. He used that time to practice archery and build a rebel army in the woods.
3. Take control of your own destiny
Robin Hood refused to be the victim and live his life as one. Instead he took control of his life and managed to improve the lives of everyone around him too.
4. Be a good leader
Robin Hood learned from the outlaws in the jungle and eventually became the best among them. He managed to unite them with a common dream to take back their land from the oppressors.
5. Find a skill you are great at
Robin Hood managed to win the appreciation and respect of all his peers for his archery. Robin Hood was the best archer in England at the time and it helped him lead the people better. However, this wouldn’t have come without years and years of practice and dedication.
