“You want something, go get it…period”

Chris Gardner tells his son (and reminds himself) of a few critical truisms about persistence and success.

  • Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something… not even me.
  • You got a dream, you’ve got to protect it.
  • People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can’t do it.
  • You want something, go get it…period.
