you got a dream… protect it.

there’s this scene in the pursuit of happyness that gets me every time:

man, that’s some powerful stuff.  for those of you that didn’t/can’t watch the video.  the scene is will smith’s character playing basketball with his son.  the son says that he wants to go pro.  the dad starts telling him he’ll probably be as good as the dad is, which isn’t that good so don’t go shooting the basketball on the courts all the time.  the son, dejected, stops playing and throws the ball away.  the dad then goes up to him and says, “don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t do something, not even me… you got a dream, you gotta protect it.  people can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it.  you want something, go get it.  period.”

man, that gets me every time.  i wish i had that belief and confidence instilled in me when i was little.  even after some jerk just crushed my dreams.

what’s your dream?  go get it.
