You can observe that Naruto is really selfless the way he prioritizes others before himself. What makes him strong is his compassion to take care and protect his friends and family. He pushes beyond his limits to protect someone from harm.
This is the scene where Team 7 (Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke) were trained by Kakashi in the woods. Their mission was to get two small bells from Kakashi and fight anything that comes in their way. Since there were only two bells, there were only two people who can get the reward of having a sumptuous lunch. Sakura and Sasuke got the reward while Naruto got tied up in a log post. Even though they were reprimanded to not share their food to Naruto, they still gave him food nonetheless. Kakashi caught them in the act, but instead of failing them in their mission, he said that the whole thing was not a test to get the bell, rather, it was a test if they were willing to break the rules in order to save their friend.
In Sai’s first appearance in the anime, he constantly smiles in whatever situation he finds himself in. It is as if he knows no other emotions just to smile and be happy. Sometimes, in real life, smiling is the only way we can respond to never-ending problems.
You decide your own fate. If you do not like what you are and what you have right now, you can always choose another road to take and become a better version of yourself.
Naruto is at his best when facing a stronger enemy; never giving up a never running away. He always strives to train hard and win every battle.
Being broken and having nothing else to hold on to makes us realize that we need to be compassionate to other people. They may also face the same hardships as you are facing right now. But as also mentioned in the quote, trials make us more mature and better equipped to deal with bigger problems in the future.
We must not underestimate ourselves and what we can do, for no matter how small we think of our capabilities, we will ultimately make a significant impact to the world we live in and become a weapon of change to help those who are oppressed and persecuted.
Everyone will die—it is a fact. We mourn and grieve, but we must tell our hearts to accept that fate and move on to face the future. If we constantly dwell on the things that upset us, we will end up in gloom, cultivating the darkness that is within us which will result in our own self-destruction.
Sometimes, we need to experience pain in order to understand the situation of others. We need to put ourselves in their shoes and encounter the same pain that they have been through so we may understand how they feel and treat them with more compassion and kindnesss.
We may be rejected and insulted but know that these are part of life’s challenges in which we must face on a regular basis. It builds up character and makes us stronger and more receptive to upcoming hurdles and challenges.
In the series, Inari was a crybaby who did nothing but cry when facing a tough situation. Naruto reprimanded him that crying cannot change the current situation or make the situation better. He also told him that there is no good in constantly crying. Yes, you can cry but eventually you need to get back up and keep fighting.
Shikamaru is lazy by nature but his supreme intellect constantly allows him to prevail in combat. His goal is to live insignificantly, free of anything remarkably good or bad, and then die just unnoticed. The lesson here is not to live life recklessly and not making any positive impact at all, but not to take problems seriously and live with a more optimistic and care-free attitude. This will help you focus better to achieve your long-term goals.
No need for further explanation. Iruka-sensei says it all. Family and friends are thicker than blood.
