The Umbrella Academy has attracted the attention of so many people because of the variety of themes it covers.
It's not your traditional superhero plot, nor is it a collection of eye candy assembled to form a power ensemble cast. The show is released in its 3rd season on Netflix. So we took this excellent opportunity to compile a list of noteworthy lessons recruiters can take away from this incredible and unique superhero series.
1. The only person who knows yourself the best is You
Do you ever feel like you don't know what to do with your life because you don't know what you want? The truth is deep inside you will always know about what you want or your passion, sometimes you just have to wait until you realize or even you have to go through an adventure to find out. But just like Number 5, he knows exactly what kind of person he is. And by that, you can always know what you want to be in the future.
2. You can do anything if you believe in yourself
It might sound cheesy, but belief in yourself. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do things that you love to do! Especially when it comes to your passion and career. They might make you think that you're not good enough to do it, but that's not the truth. Because if you believe in yourself, you can do anything and you can be whatever you want to be. Remember this scene when nobody believes that Vanya can control her power? Well, she can.
3. Be determined and have a clear purpose in mind
One of the most compelling, nail-biting narrative arcs in the series is how determined Number Five is in saving the world from the apocalypse. He uses every ounce of his strength and cunning to get the answers he wants, seemingly mindful of the possible repercussions. While some of his decisions can be questionable, it cannot be denied that such characters with a noble vision and an impassioned spirit teach us many things: The calculating ways, the aversion to passivity, and lack of planning.
4. Human connection is above everything
What we loved about the series is how it fleshed out the nuances of each Hargreeves sibling and let us know that in spite of whatever superpower they may have, at the heart of it all they remain human, and their being human makes them vulnerable and in need of companionship. Look no further as Number Five relies on a dilapidated mannequin as his companion post-apocalypse, and how Number One kept on sending reports straight from the moon.
