I believe this is one of the most inspirational scene of the movie – “Forrest Gump“. In all I would rate this movie as one among my top favourite motivational ones. This particular scene where he explains how he started running from being a boy who was a polio victim is something which always creates a strange sense of energy within. For a lot of reasons this scene conveys a lot of messages

  • Run Forrest Run! It is all about the run, it is all about the action. We all know what needs to be done, we all know what we need to do and we all have reasons why not but what matters eventually – RUN!
  • Breaking the shackles – I love the way the breaking of the shackles is shown, highly motivational, and I think that’s how we end up breaking the shackles – few of which we create on our own and a few our environs, but the truth would always remain that the shackles are meant to be broken!

  • And once you run, you keep running, you keep moving, that’s how opportunities are created, that’s how change is made and isn’t that the definition of success.
  • Another scene where someone asks him why he runs to make a record and he says “I just felt like running”. Although a very simple statement, it does convey a lot. Lot of times, the reasons have been achievements, more money, social stratification but what matters is the sense of doing something cos we want to do it and nothing else really matters.

And the moral of the story, well its simple isn’t it?! πŸ™‚

  2. Vinay,

    This movie tops my all time favourites list. The message is subtle but very motivating. Another thing I observed was how humble and simple Forrest remains till the end. Opportunities follow us if we are foused and grounded. Thanks for sharing this πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Vinay πŸ™‚ . I’d love to visit your collection of the top motivational movies. This in particular like you said is very subtle, and the message is so clear and simple. Feels really good watching the movie πŸ™‚

  3. Tom Hanks picks up his scripts as much perfectly as Aamir Khan πŸ™‚
    You made my day bro- I need to watch it !! This was fabulous and as you said inspirational .Our troubles are our biggest teachers and motivators helping us break the shackles of difficulties .
    When chased by the boys .. the kid had no option but to run as fast as possible. Moreover,its like if someone gets what he/she has been longing for at the rightest time , he/she respects that thing dearly !

    1. Thanks dude πŸ™‚ .. You are very kind with your compliments πŸ™‚ ..

      Oh Yes! I think that is the perfect parallel between Tom Hanks and Aamir! Arguably the best actors cinema has seen. I love the scene where the shackles break, like you said there was no choice for him but to run, sometimes I believe adversity or a challenge is the nicest things to happen, they make us push beyond the limits we put for ourselves, make us go beyond and reach out!

    1. I could not agree more Natt, even now as I reminisce, I recall the first scene where he opens that box of chocolates and the whole theme of Run Forrest Run is so beautifully captured in the movie.. I would love to watch it again, it shows the free spirit in a beautiful manner πŸ™‚
