I am sure most of us out there have seen this movie and yet we didn’t take this part of it in.
Forrest Gump didn’t have great ideas, but he took action. He was happy because he always did his best at whatever he did. He was richly rewarded without expecting any reward at all. Taking action is being alive. It’s taking the risk to go out and express your dream. This is different than imposing your dream on someone else, because everyone has the right to express his or her dream.
Think about it, people might just say Forrest was lucky, maybe he was but he sure didn’t get it just sitting around. He really didn’t care about the end he was just living in that moment and doing what he thought he was supposed to do.
