If I mention the name Christopher Gardner, you might be like um, who is that? If I mention the movie The Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith, that might ring a bell. Well that film is based on his life. His rags to riches story has inspired millions of people the world over. His background might be in the financial industry, but his story is a human story. We all go through things, we all experience highs and lows; money can be (and probably is) tight and jobs are scarce as a result.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to chat to Chris via Google Hangout. He’ll be heading out to South Africa this August for the National Achievers Conference 2014. It’ll be held out at Gallagher Convention Centre on the 30 & 31 August 2014. For more information you can check out www.nacsouthafrica.com, but for now check out the Hangout below:
For me, I have an idea, I just need to put the plan into action. Here’s one of his profound quotes that mirrors the planning statement:
“Do something that you love. Whatever you’re going to do is going to be tough enough. Find something that gets you so excited that the sun can’t come up early enough in the morning because you want to go do your thing.”
