Yes, this is the title of the movie where Will Smith starred as Chris Gardner, a single father for a toddler who wanted to change his life. Using the words of ciedo (a blogger I found from bloghopping), Chris rolled back and forth on the earth just to pursue happyness (hence the title of his book).
I found the book in Aksara, during one of my drunk-on-books time at Citos. (I can spend hours in that bookstore just strolling from one book to another).
Chris wrote these interesting words (on page 6 of the book), which have been said many times by many different people, but still ring very true in essence:
“As long as I kept my mental focus on destinations that were ahead, destinations that I had the audacity to dream might hold a red Ferrari of my own, I protected myself from despair. The future was uncertain, absolutely, and there were many hurdles, twists, and turns to come, but as long as I kept moving forward, one foot in front of the other, the voices of fear and shame, the messages from those who wanted me to believe that I wasn’t good enough, would be stilled.
Go forward. That became my mantra.”
