“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” — Viktor Frankl
We are finally saying goodbye to a year that has challenged most of us in very deep ways. A great portion of humanity has been pushed to the limit this year and forced to rethink the way they carry out our lives. For better or worse, we’ve had to abandon plans, reinvent our careers, postpone celebrations and endure financial and emotional hardship. As we close the first year of this decade, here are some important reflections that can help us be better prepared for the future.
HEALTH IS EVERYTHING
Not all of us had to experience the painful suffering of COVID-19 patients in the hospital, but those that did, quickly discovered how health is the most important foundation in our lives. We have learnt that being physically strong and healthy will help us endure the challenges that life puts in our way. Make your health a priority in 2021 by eating healthy, doing exercise, sleeping well, laughing regularly and by developing deep human relationships that will strengthen your sense of well-being.
LIFE GOES ON
As radical and long-drawn 2020 has been, we are about to cross over to a new year. This is an important reminder that all things shall pass, no situation or circumstance is permanent. This year we were compelled to face and accept many harsh realities and it is fundamental that we do not succumb to despair. Have hope that life will change even when you are at your lowest point and try to develop an attitude of trust in life. It won’t take long before you notice yourself moving more freely and confidently in your day-to-day.
THERE IS ALWAYS A SOLUTION
Many of us lost our jobs, had to close businesses, or cut down on working hours and, in that process, we had to reinvent ourselves to find ways to make a living. We suddenly started discovering that we are a problem-solving species that can generally find ways of fixing a situation. Work we thought could only be done in the office is suddenly carried out perfectly remotely. Local businesses found ways to make their products available through the vast technology we employ today. Next time you encounter an obstacle, take a deep breath and be confident that you will find a solution, if you truly apply yourself to the problem.
PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE
When the pandemic started going full throttle many of us saw how our plans began to literally disintegrate. Plan A became plan B and then Plan C, until we had no plans left. Whether we wanted or not, we had to remain open to an uncertain future and this can feel very uncomfortable. We are beings that enjoy routines and structure; and here was 2020 dissolving all of that. Patience is one of the virtues that allow us to be in the present moment without desiring any particular outcome. The more you cultivate patience, the more calm and still you will become, no matter what kind of curve ball life throws at you.

In history, we find several astounding cases where banks and vaults have been robbed for unbelievable amounts. We have sifted through countless bank robbery stories to bring you the most famous cases.
The Dunbar Armored robbery
This was an inside job, masterminded by Allen Pace who worked as a safety inspector for the Dunbar trucking company. In 1997, Allen timed the security cameras so he could easily avoid them. He brought in 5 of his childhood friends to help him rob the vault. They broke in without being filmed and assaulted two guards on their lunch break. They loaded the money in a waiting U-Haul truck and almost got away with it!
The police suspected it was an inside job and checked on Allen but found no evidence. The robbers began to launder the money through property deals and phony businesses. One of the gang members sloppily gave an estate broker friend a stack of money still bound with the original currency straps. This friend called the police and arrested the gang member who later confessed of the crime and named his co-conspirators. Allen Pace was arrested and given 24 years of prison time. Less than $5 million of the stolen money was recovered.
The Brink's-Mat burglary
This is probably Britain’s most notorious bank heist and has even been described as the ‘crime of the century’. In 1983, security guard Anthony Black led a group of robbers into the Brink’s-Mat warehouse located in London’s Heathrow airport. Once inside, they poured petrol over the staff and threatened to light them on fire if they did not reveal the combination numbers of the vault. The robbers got access and originally thought they would steal around £3.2 million in cash but, to their surprise, they found 3,000 kilograms of gold bullion and diamonds. At today’s worth, they stole over 88 million pounds of cash, diamonds and gold!
Over the next few several months gang members were arrested but the majority of the gold was not recovered.
The Knightsbridge Security Deposit robbery
This is considered one of the three biggest bank robberies of all time. It took place in 1987 and was led by Valerio Viccei, an Italian national who had a precedent of 50 armed robberies. He managed to get help from a managing director at Knightsbridge, who was a cocaine user and was heavily in debt.
Two of the robbers entered the bank and requested to rent a safe deposit box. They were lead to the vault, where they drew their handguns. Once the staff was subdued, they hung a sign stating that the bank was temporarily closed whilst letting further accomplices into the bank. They broke into as many safe boxes as they could and took with them over £60 million pounds at today’s worth.
Forensic investigators found a bloody fingerprint belonging to Valerio Viccei, but he had fled to South America by then. Valerio came back later to England to retrieve his Ferrari which he intended to ship to South America and got arrested in this occasion and sentenced to 22 years in prison.
