Step 1

Think about Chris Gardner from the movie, 'Pursuit of Happyness' that we asked you to watch in Day 11.

You watched the movie, right?

If not, then continue on with the steps. Try to catch the film later. It's worth the watch.

If yes, then consider the desire and the action that got Chris what he always wanted.

How does that relate to you? What desire and action are you pursuing to achieve your vision?

Step 2

Mr. Gardner never dreamed he would be a failure. His dream was of being a success and a good father. His destiny was in becoming the man he wanted both he and his son to respect.

Why is that so important?

If we live a life where we simply react to our circumstances, it tends to strip us of our freedom, our dignity, our respect and our sense of worth.

As we gaze upon something bigger, it starts to lift us up. It begins to change our reality.

As our hope grows, it influences the people around us and even has a positive impact upon our present situation.

What level of confidence do you have to take the steps needed to pursue your destiny?

Step 3

Again, no one said achieving your dreams would be easy. At the same time, is it all that easy to stay where you are now?

Then what do you have to lose? Seriously, what do you have to lose?

What do you have to gain?

Which one are you focused on?

Step 4

Your exercise today is to watch the movie, 'Akeelah and the Bee.'

Specifically look for what's stopping Akeelah.

See how she overcomes the fear of peer pressure that says she should conform to a lower standard than she's capable.

You can stream the movie online, or check it out of the library.

Wil you watch it?
