Why You Should Quit Your Job and Travel around the World : The Art of Non-Conformity
Angela Duckworth: So, my dad definitely looms large in my biography, as I think dads do for a lot of people. Growing up I had a family headed by a father who was singularly obsessed with achievement—his own, and that of others. He was always asking: Who is the bigger genius, Mozart or Beethoven? Matisse or Picasso? These are the type of debates we would have over dinner. So I did grow up to be someone who is ambitious, but also someone who never had the self-concept of being a genius or someone who is gifted.
QZ: Is the underdog mentality natural, and something that manifests at a young age, or can it can be developed? AD: Most of the research and psychology says that people change much more after childhood than you first would think. But neuroscience and longitudinal research on people suggests that people change a lot actually, and they change sometimes in dramatic ways. For instance, most people become more conscientious, more dependable, more agreeable, more wise, and more emotionally stable as they mature.
For example, psychotherapy has enormous effects that are lasting beyond the last therapy session, and that is proof that people can change the way they interact with the world. QZ: Do you think knowing about grit as a concept, and its benefits, makes you grittier? Debbie writes from personal experience.

I thought that the protagonist would go in the way of the "Death of the Salesman" of Arthur Miller a play of s. The happier ending of the Pursuit of Happiness sounds better than "the Death of the Salesman" of Miller. How the sales persons of financial services would be marketing their wares in these days of Great Depression, we have to see in the real world USA. Any way thank you for the enlightening review of the film. I watched the movie two times now.

Inspired by true story of Chris Gardner The Physical Premise Let's correct some easy-to-come-by misconceptions about this movie. The protagonist's pursuit is not about the pursuit of money.

The true story of the real Chris Gardner and how just a short time ago he sold his brokerage firm for millions of dollars can easily lead us to the assumption that the character Will Smith plays in the movie has, as his physical goal, the pursuit of money. But, in the movie, riches is never his goal. It is always about the happiness that being a responsible father will always bring. This confusion about the pursuit of money is understandable because the movie's protagonist is struggling with financial indebtedness, and trying to earn money is one of his principle occupations.
We must understand, however, that the movie is NOT saying money brings us happiness; although, I think the movie is saying that a secure income sure does make life less painful and more comfortable, and to that degree it can bring a level of happiness.
