“You want something. Go get it. Period.”

The quote, “You want something. Go get it. Period.”, is from a phenomenal movie I watched at home the other night that I missed when it was in theatres. Pursuit of Happyness has far too many great messages to detail here, but there was one message that can never be repeated too much: don’t let anybody (and I mean ANYBODY) steal your dream. Actor Will Smith does a great job making that point in this short video excerpt from the movie (which by the way, is based on a true story about Chris Gardner, who went from being homeless to great success because he refused to let others steal his dream).

This movie is in my permanent DVD collection and I can’t wait until my grandchildren are old enough to understand it. You can get a copy at Amazon (and used ones are available as well.
