The Pursuit of Happyness
by John Waters
The movie that has changed my way of thinking and life is called, The Pursuit of Happyness. It is not a Law of Attraction movie, but rather a ground-breaking movie. The reason this movie has drastically changed my way of thinking and even my life is because seeing a man over come so many struggles and rise to success was unbelievably empowering. It has showed me that when all odds seem to be against you and that you are feeling as if you are just meant to live a life that is essential worthless and much less than what you expected for yourself there is still a chance for change. I learned from this movie that it is never too late to start doing better for yourself and to chase what you want in life. It also showed me that not everyone is going to be supportive of your dreams and a lot of times it might even be the ones closest to you, but that doesn't mean you give up and let go. You have to push on and show everyone who's watching that you can do, or be whatever it is you want. I learned that if something makes you happy than it is never a worthless attempt to go out and get whatever it is. After watching this movie and learning all this I realized that just because I wasn't Will Smith doesn't mean I couldn't go after my dreams the way he went after his. He wanted a better life for not only himself, but also for his son and so he put in the effort and it got him to exactly where he wanted to be in life. After seeing this movie I started to dream more and I actually found that I did not just dismiss my dreams as silly unrealistic goals, but instead I pushed forward and went after them. Years later after seeing this movie I still follow these ideas and morals in my day-to-day life.
