Dream and Go Get It

I am watching 'The Pursuit of Happyness' at the moment on Star Movies. This movie is absolutely brilliant. It shows a lot of values that we often forget. And it tells the true story of a man who had a rough life but now he is one of the most successful man on earth.

My Favourite Quote is:

"Don't ever let somebody tell you...You can't do something. Not even me. All right. You got a dream...you gotta protect it. People can't do something by themselves...they wanna tell you, you can't do it. If you want something, go get it. Period."

A young man once dream of becoming the next president. But everytime he tells someone his dream, they would laugh it off and tell him that he can't do it. As years went by, he find himself still sitting on the desk, signing papers.

One day, a customer came by to have his paper sign and realized the young man looking rather dull. So the customer asked, "Don't you want to do something else?"

The young man said, "I want to be the next president."

The customer said, "So what's the problem?"

The young man said, "People kept saying I can't. That I'm being silly."

"If I were to say I'm a manager who was once a begger, would you believe me?" The customer said. "Don't let these people let your dream vanish. Don't let these people just because they can't dream their own and push you down. A dream is something you have just got to get it. And not sit back, receiving comments."

Study have showed that people who dream about what they want to get often ending up getting what they want to get. But the biggest contributer in this is the person himself. He has to believe that he is not only an ambitioner but also a dreamer.

No matter what people say about you, whether you are too poor; too dumb or just anything -- it's just because THEY themselves can't believe in their own dreams. So when other people around them dream, they'll be like, "Stop dreaming. It'll never work."

The truth is you never know what could work if you stop dreaming, if you stop without even puting your heart in it. It's like you are driving on a road and you stopped halfway, then you go back. So when people ask you, what was in the end? How can you answer that since you let it go before you even start dreaming.

I have seen some teenagers who dream of becoming singers, fashion designers or just about anything, ending up becoming what their parent's dreams are: doctors, engineer, etc. No offence to these parents but they are actually living their dreams either because their dreams never came true or they assume every dreams they have their kids should have.

This shouldn't be happening. Dreams are what we, each and single person made.

Everyone's hair is black but every heart is different

So dream on and live it. Live it and love it(:

Well said, young lady. You stick to those beliefs and NEVER let anyone deny you your dreams. Think and dream BIG, stretch and work and you will achieve. "Pursuit" is also one of my all time fav movies :)
