Best Advice: Protect Your Dream

by - November 13, 2011

I've watched the movie 'Pursuit of Happyness' a million times. There are so many scenes in the movie that tugged at my heart and inspired me in so many ways.

One of my favourite scenes from the movie is the following dialogue between Christopher Gardner (Will Smith) and his son Christopher: -

Christopher G: Hey. Don't ever let somebody tell you... You can't do something. Not even me. All right?
Christopher: All right.
Christopher G: You got a dream... You gotta protect it. People can't do somethin' themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want somethin', go get it. Period.
I've written the same dialogue in my layout here in the hope that it will inspire me and my kids when they grow up and flip through my scrapbook album.

What about you? What is the best advice you have ever received or would like to pass on to your family or friends?

P.S. I've entered this layout in the 'Best Advice' Challenge by Creative Type.
