Let's Pursue Happiness! #MondayMotivation

I've seen it numerous times, and yet The Pursuit of Happyness gets to me every single time! This last time I was watching there was a part at the end that especially got me thinking and I thought maybe someone else needs to hear (or in this case read) it too.

After finishing his internship, Chris Gardner (played by Will Smith) is asked to another office by one of the "big bosses". After some small talk, they finally reveal to Chris that he has the job. He is happy, we are happy, all of us are crying yada yada yada. Right after he is hired, the "big boss" asks him "Was it as easy as it looked?" and Chris replies "No  sir". 

Still from The Pursuit of Happyness

Sometimes we become too caught up in easy. We always try to find the easy way to do things and if is something is not so easy, or downright difficult, we give up because that is the easy thing to do! 

What if just once, instead of giving up, we put our noses to the grindstone and really pushed ourselves beyond our comfort zones? What if we dared to push forward, believing we could, instead of being (coincidentally) easily convinced we could not? What would you achieve? 

Here's hoping your week is off to a great start!
