Description: "Courage to Change'' is a song by Sia (2020) that tells the story of the courage to change from the hardships in life. In this fast-moving world, the thing that doesn’t change often is ourselves. This music video cover tells the story of three main characters who suffered a lot and lastly exert themselves. The characters are an unemployed worker, a dancer who has no self-confidence and a violinist who could not walk out from the pain of her loved one’s death. We all might have gone through hardships but we need to exert and return stronger to live our life. Many people have faced challenges that brought huge negative impacts on them especially during COVID-19. Many of them had lost their jobs and loved ones. This song and the background of the story are used to encourage and motivate the audience to overcome their challenges positively. Not only that, we hope we could bring some influences to whoever that needs courage to take a big step forward in their life. Using a quote by Ernest Hemingway, “courage is grace under pressure”, we sum up the message that we want to convey to the audience through this story. Happiness and sorrow, victory and defeat, day and night are just two sides of the coin. Similarly, life is full of moments of joy, pleasure, success, and comfort punctuated by misery, defeat, failures, and problems. There is no human being on Earth that is strong, powerful, wise, or rich who has not experienced struggle, suffering, or failure. Every person in this world has their low points. Some may handle or even hide it better than others. But the truth is, whatever you are going through, there are others who have been through it too. You’re not alone. By masking your feelings, they are not going to go away. Rather, feelings become trapped energy and can even have negative health consequences when they are ignored. Take some time to feel what you feel. This could come in the form of meditation. Difficulties test the courage, patience, perseverance, and true character of a human being. Adversity and hardships make a person strong and ready to face the challenges of life with equanimity. There is no doubt that there can be no gain without pain. It is only when one toils and sweats it out that success is nourished and sustained.
