The Shangchi Dialogue
I recently saw the latest Marvel gem “Shangchi“.
This was the first Marvel movie (besides Black Panther) I did not sleep in. I know my daughters and all Marvel fans will hate me for writing this, but it is true.
However, Shangchi was different, and I was wide awake throughout the movie. Well almost throughout because I dozed off for some seconds in the end.
The start and the first half had some mind-blowing action sequences, so I was hooked on early …You should watch it (even if you are not a Marvel fan like me 😁).
By the way this is not a review of the movie, so I promise I had a point to make besides recommending this movie.
There is a powerful dialogue in the movie which is as follows – “If You Aim at Nothing, You, will Hit Nothing.”
This is such a simple but powerful one.
3 Things go through my mind as I think about this dialogue.
a. People Aim at Nothing – Hit Nothing – Feel Safe.
b. Aim at Something and are likely to make a Mistake – To avoid making a mistake, people Avoid Aiming at something and end up aiming at Nothing.
c. Aim at Something and you Might actually Hit Something – But to hit Something, you have to go through the Pain of making mistakes and many times hitting nothing.
What are you aiming at?
Something or Nothing.
