If you have not watched The Pursuit of Happiness in a while and are losing inspiration let Chris Gardner show you why sometimes fighting for your dream is worth all the strife. Chris (played by Will Smith) is a struggling semi-homeless salesman who focuses all his energies and financial ability on a medical apparatus.

However, the life lessons that come through the screen are invaluable. Sometimes perseverance goes a long way but this may mean you are going to have to do some risky things to get to where you want to be.
