The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness is a great book. It is an amazing story of how Chris Gardner went journeyed from being a homeless, single father to a multimillionaire while maintaining his relationship with his son and later daughter. It makes me know that I can do it too. I’m not homeless, but just to think how hard he struggled, how far he had to go. My leap should be no where near as hard.

It also resonated with me as I have yet to meet my biological father. It was good to read how he did one day meet his, and like him, my father is somewhere in Louisiana.

I also noticed how he was thankful for all the people who helped him along the way, who gave him breaks. It shows that there are really no “self-made” successes, everyone has help along the way. However, he did work extraordinarily hard with commitment and passion. Those things brought him to the notice of the individuals who could help him. So, in a way, you do make your own breaks.

I look forward to reading his latest book, Start Where You Are.

I also finished The Kalahari Typing School for Men (No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, Book 4) today. I’m currently reading Mindset, Financial Peace Revisited and Fault Line.
