Pursuit of Happyness Motivational Speech - Will Smith
“There is no progress without struggle.” — Fredrick DouglasThe American Dream:The American dream is the belief that anyone, regardless of where they were born or what class they were born into, can attain their own version of success in a society in which upward mobility is possible for everyone.The Persuit of Happiness"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."What is it about? Life is a struggle for single father Chris Gardner (Will Smith). Evicted from their apartment, he and his young son (Jaden Christopher Syre Smith) find themselves alone with no place to go. Even though Chris eventually lands a job as an intern at a prestigious brokerage firm, the position pays no money. The pair must live in shelters and endure many hardships, but Chris refuses to give in to despair as he struggles to create a better life for himself and his son.It is based on Gardner's nearly one-year struggle being homeless. The unusual spelling of the film's title comes from a mural that Gardner sees on the wall outside the daycare facility his son attended.It ends with a couple of title cards revealing the happy fate of its protagonist, Chris Gardner. He went on to earn a great fortune and build his own brokerage. He certainly deserved to after all the hard work he put in and everything he suffered along the way.

It's about choosing what you want, and at the same time, what you don't want. Deciding and making a decision. Not keeping your options open.Committed people constantly make new goals and are always striving to push their boundaries and achieve more. People who are committed work hard out of habit and out of loyalty. They have a unique endurance that allows them to physically keep going because they are mentally wired to work endlessly toward their dreams.How to show your commitment at workBe punctual.

How to take charge of your life? Jim Rohn Motivational Speech
Jim Rohn was an American businessman, a self-made millionaire before he turned 31, author, motivational speaker and even Anthony Robbins's mentor. The author of dozens of books, Rohn was also a big believer in the power of self-discipline to achieve one's ambitions at home and in business.One of the greatest rags-to-riches stories is that of Jim Rohn. Jim spent his entire adult life giving back to humanity by teaching and lecturing about how to gain success in selling. He tried to teach people that they could be whatever they chose to be. Jim was an only child who grew up on a little farm in southwest Idaho, U.S.A., to become what many consider to be America's foremost business philosopher.Some great quotes from Jim Rohn:1. “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom.”2. “How sad to see a father with money and no joy. The man studied economics, but never studied happiness.”3. “Days are expensive. When you spend a day you have one less day to spend. So make sure you spend each one wisely.”4. “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”5. “Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don’t fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.”6. “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”7. “The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - never knowing.”8. “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” 9. “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” 10. “Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.”11. “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”12. “Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.” 13. “The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.” 14. “Asking is the beginning of receiving. I ask for all kinds of things. Make sure you don't go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won't laugh at you.” 15. “Get around people who have something of value to share with you. Their impact will continue to have a significant effect on your life long after they have departed.” 16. “Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”17. “Make rest a necessity, not an objective. Only rest long enough to gather strength.”18. “Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.”19. “No one else 'makes us angry.' We make ourselves angry when we surrender control of our attitude.”20. “You must either modify your dreams or magnify your skills.”____________________________________________________________Check out more episodes and subscribe on 2030school.com You can also email us at rich@2030school.com
