3 Life Lessons from “Pursuit of Happyness” Movie by Kola Oyeneyin – Pursuit is the Evidence of Desire!
Christopher Gardner is one of the wealthiest black men in America today but before then he was broke, homeless and hopeless.
Played by the legendary @willsmith in the “Pursuit of Happyness”, Chris went from raising a child as a single father whose wife abandoned him to being a big time Wall Street Stockbroker.
Chris had every season to be sorry for himself and his state; living from one hostel to another and one soup kitchen another. At a time he and his son had to sleep in the toilet of a subway station. Chris did 3 things, which we must all do no matter our state in 2019:
1. He humbled himself. No job was ever beneath him. He that is already down fears no fall but in Nigeria usually, he that is down mostly pretends to be taken a nap. Stop pretending, humble yourself; get a job!!!
2. He never felt entitled. The feeling of entitlement is what makes many wait for things to come to them. My friends, life doesn’t own us anything, we must fight for everything.
3. He pursued. No one will ever know how hard you want something until they see hard you pursue it. He told his son: “don’t ever let anyone tell you you can’t do something. If you want something, GO GET IT! PERIOD!”
In 2019, as we head towards the end of the foundation month (January), what do you want this year? The way you pursue it will be the evidence of your desire for it.
Even those that have been positioned to give it to you must see your desire for it.
God in heaven must see your desire for it. Friends, let’s pursue hard this year.
I am KO, and I just want us to have a great start to 2019. #2019Preparations
