Have you ever seen a movie where something terrible happens, and the next time you watch the movie you desperately wish the character would make a different decision and avoid that terrible thing? Don’t open the door! Don’t leave your child there! Don’t try to run past that giant rotating people shovel! Every time we watch this video we’re shouting at the computer “Just go around the rotating people shovel, there’s plenty of empty grid for you to walk in!” But no matter how many times we play it the men never change their decision to run directly in to the path of the giant rotating people shovel.
This video really speaks to us- is there a more apt metaphor for these times? Often life can feel like an impossible task, like trying to run past a giant rotating people shovel. Sometimes you feel like there’s nothing out there for you, like the whole world is just one big empty grid with faceless men running past a rotating people shovel. Then sometimes, if you believe in yourself and keep trying, you can accomplish your goals- like the five guys that run past the giant rotating people shovel without getting swept up by a huge mass of writhing men. Use this video as inspiration next time you’re feeling down.
