inspirational job goals

remember the movie "pay it forward"?
remember the movie "the pursuit of happyness"?

both of these movies impact my job competencies this year.

I have to write about how they impact me in my job and personal life,  in order to exceed my targets in the area of impact and infuence and also adaptability-to-change

Pay It Forward

He decides to try to affect three people’s lives for the better, and in return those people would do the same for three more people, thus creating a chain of life changing events.
 this is a memorable inspiring and sad movie.  It gives my heart a huge pull because of my son's death almost 8 years ago.  When the young boy, Trevor, at the end of the movie is being interviewed by a TV journalist at his school and then leaves the school when it is done to get on his bike and head home, he comes across a young school boy being violently bullied by an older boy.   Then it all happens fast.  The young boy who was being attacked has escaped and Trevor, the main character of this movie, is off his bike and fighting with the bully because he is paying it forward and the fight ends in a tragic death for Trevor.....  it is about caring enough and risking enough to make a difference in just one person's life.  This is what is important and sometimes tragedy prevails because we care enough.  Impact!   If I don't stand for something, I will fall for nothing!

Trevor McKenney: I guess it's hard for people who are so used to things the way they are - even if they're bad - to change. 'Cause they kind of give up. And when they do, everybody kind of loses. (memorable quote from the movie Pay it Forward)

The Pursuit of Happyness

this movie is about "keeping and striving  for and believing your dream" it isn't about poverty or homeless lifestyle to me, it is about changing beliefs that other people have pushed on you and making your own - Chris Gardner did not want to lose his son.  His young son was Chris's purpose and he was going to make sure nothing stood in his way  to provide financial security and happyness for him and his boy.   I got from this movie that you need a deep soulful purpose in your life to keep your "happyness pursuit" as creative and inspiring as you want and to never to lose your spirit and yourself in the process.
You got a dream... You gotta protect it. People can't do somethin' themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want somethin', go get it. Period.

(memorable quote from movie, actually said by Chris Gardner)

Stand For Something and Believe In Your Purpose

I stand for "respecting others" no matter who they are
I believe in "personal power" and using it without being fearful of it
