Run Forrest Run
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?! 🙂
