So it's 5am here now in London, we woke up to work as its noon in Kuala Lumpur. I remembered watching Joy earlier on our flight and it really got me. The story is about a girl who founded a business empire- Little did she know when she first started being a single mother of two, struggling with debts and mortgage.
The first part of the show is a little slow but later the show picks up when she finally gets an opportunity to present her newly-invented product at the QVC office. Betrayal, treachery, loss of love and even being called a bad mother because she got kick out from showcasing her product the "Miracle Mop" on the streets outside the supermarket with her daughter. I love how she took control of her life when her whole life situation is at it's worst.
The best quote on the movie.
"Christie, look at me. I want you to remember something, because a lot of times people get nice things and they start to think differently. We got here from hard work, patience and humility. So I want to tell you, don’t ever think that the world owes you anything, because it doesn’t. The world doesn’t owe you a thing."
What i've learned from the movie is this, “Don't ever let someone tell you, you can or can't do something''.
Please watch this movie if you like to be inspired!
