Quit, Crack, or Cry: The Song of a Broken Parent

If you don’t know the story of the former homeless single-dad turned stockbroker Chris Gardner you need to see this. Warning: keep tissues nearby.  He lived in bathrooms, motels, and train cars. He routinely lived in circumstances that would make you want to quit but the key is he held on to his conviction to be a great father and his attitude toward success.  I intend to identify with his success sometime soon as well.It will touch your heart but what I love about his story is that its very easy to identify with this man. If you feel like giving up stay encouraged. You are not alone.

    WHAT AN INSPIRING STORY. I NEEDED TO HEAR SOMETHING LIKE THIS ON A MORNING LIKE TODAY WHEN IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYTHING YOU DO ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH. FOR SOMEONE WHOSE STORY ISN’T THAT MUCH DIFFERENT THEN MR. GARDNER’S, HIS LIFE HAS GIVEN ME THE INSPIRATION I NEEDED TO COMPLETE MY JOURNEY.
