Forrest Is Told To Run (college)
Forrest is daydreaming on the football field when a teammate gives him the ball and tells him to run. He takes off, evades tacklers, runs into the end zone, knocks over the band members and runs out of the stadium.
**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** To succeed in a new organization or job, the first thing you need to do is, just do as you're told. I'm Steve Weber and today is scene 89 - Forrest is told to run in college. Don't forget, we're counting down from 94 to #1 on July 6th. Please share these videos with other Gump Groupies. Forrest was recruited to play college football because he was fast. He wasn't recruited because of his understanding of the game. Forrest was told to run. He ran. The coach and his teammates knew that if he ran, he would be a winner. Forrest did what he was told. He just ran. Of course, his lack of understanding of the game prevented him from knowing when to stop. No worries, they'd teach Forrest that soon enough. Forrest's job was to run. He did. He was successful. The first thing Forrest did to become successful was to simply do what he was told. Think about the last time you started a new job - you probably just did as you were told. The ability to listen and do as your told takes Gumption. Let's all be more gump-like- let's live our lives with Gumption.
