**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** Just hold it for a little awhile, maybe it will grow on you? Hi, I'm Steve Weber and today's scene #38 shows Forrest beginning his entrepreneurial life. I've created this 94 of the best scenes and life lessons from the movie to pay tribute to this iconic movie's 25th anniversary. More wisdom from Mama Gump. When Forrest returned home, There were lots of visitors looking for Forrest's endorsement. Forrest told Mama he only liked using his own ping-pong paddle. The implication being 'how could he endorse something he didn't use? ... "But it's $25,000 Forrest ... Maybe you could just hold it for a few minutes ... and see if it grows on you?" It takes gumption to be open to new ideas. It takes gumption to see the wisdom in someone else's advice. Do you want to be more gump-like? ... Be open to the ideas of others, really listen and understand ... you can then decide what to do that advice, either accept it or reject it. Let's learn to live our lives with Gumption.
