WHAT WE LEARN FROM MOVIE
5. It's okay if people don't believe in your dream as long as you believe in yourself.
-What matters most isn't what they believe about you but what you believe about you. He believed in himself and won the internship position and went on to become a successful stoke broker even starting his own brokerage company . Believe in yourself even when others don't believe in you.
The Pursuit of Happiness, set in 1981, is inspired by the real life story of underdog Chris Gardner, who rose from being homeless to become a stock market tycoon.
REASON WHY HAPPYNESS SPELL WITH Y, NOT I?
this is the answer...
"The word "happiness" in the title is deliberately misspelled, just as it was on the wall of a day care center where Gardner once sought care for his young son, Chris Jr., during some of his worst days." Chris even points out the misspelling to the Chinese care-giver that the mural decorating his son's daycare is spelled incorrectly. Chris wanted to make sure that his son was taught things the correct way, so that he could grow up to be an educated man and make something great of himself. Chris "took offense" to the fact that the world happiness was spelled wrong on the wall and became irritated by it. But the word comes to signify Chris' own pursuit of happiness.
7. No obstacle will stop you from achieving success
- In this movie, what we have learn how Chris Gardner facing an hardness situation to achieve his goals become an successful person. Any obstacle that comes your way is accepted and fought off with a creative solution.
4. Sometimes we have to take a step back to take a step forward. Sometimes you need to take that step backward, If what you are presently doing isn't yielding the results you want then you might have to take a step back. You might have to change careers and go back to school, you might have to learn a new trade and start as a trainee.
3. You can achieve anything you set your mind to; even when your circumstances are working against you. But more importantly, you don’t have to compromise your morals to do it.
Chris Gardner, was just an unhappy salesman as he really worked hard to be able to sell a single scanner to finance his daily needs.

-various setbacks the character will smith played in the movie went through before he finally made it. He lost his car, his wife left him, he became homeless, he was broke, his business didn't really work out, he had to look after his son himself, I Mean the setbacks were endless.
1. You can't let people discourage you from your dreams just because they have be unsuccessful themselves.

6. It's never too late to start something new.
- Not looking at yourself today and thinking to yourself "I'm too old to start that" or "I'm too young to start that" age ain't nothing but a number. What matters is your drive and willingness to succeed not your age.
