This clip is only 1:08 long, but if you haven’t seen the full movie, it is definitely a must. Pursuit of Happiness is a movie, based on a true story, where Will Smith plays Christopher Gardner, during some very challenging times in his early life.
Listen to what he tells his son below:
“People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you, you can’t do it…..You want something, go get it, period.”
I don’t know where you are at in your life right now. I don’t know if you found this site because you are trying to start your own online business or if you found it because you were just looking for some motivational speeches. Regardless of where you are at, I will tell you from experience. from having been through it myself, that the above is true.
Just because most people can’t do something, they will tell you, you can’t either, that it’s not possible. And it sometimes comes from the ones we love most.
Remember success doesn’t just happen, you have to make it happen. And if you are hearing from the naysayers right now, that you can’t do it, then you are exactly where ALL the successful people have been at one time or another. You are in a “right of passage” right now. I know you can keep going. Make it through. Be different, be strong, be great, and go get it.
If you have any experiences you want to share when the naysayers were trying to put you down, but you pushed through, please share it below. You never know who you will encourage.
