This is one of the richest men in the world today and you can see his life in greater detail in the film “In the Pursuit of Happiness“, starring the famous Will Smith. The interesting thing about Chris is that there came a point in his life when he found himself homeless, while he had a little boy to raise. However, with much effort he managed to become a stockbroker and later founded his company in 1987.
He had a difficult childhood, in which his parents fought and drank. As a teenager he joined the army and later married, having a young son. However, his life began to fall apart when he got divorced and was left in charge of his son, with a drop in sales of health products to which he was dedicated at the time. However, Gardner did not stop and began studying to become a stockbroker.
There were many nights when he had to study standing up, being in homes for the homeless, dark places with poor hygiene. Gardner never thought about this and kept on studying and wanting to enter the brokerage firm, which he did. He later started his own firm called Gardner & Rich Co.
This is an American author, who had a rather difficult life until she was about 35 years old. Her childhood was difficult, since her family situation was marked by difficulties. As a child she was raped and later moved from the city to make a life for herself. When she was approximately 35 years old she was diagnosed with vaginal cancer, with only a few months to live.
However, Louise Hay saw an opportunity to educate herself about Chinese medicine, how the mind affects our body and generates disease, and all the ancient wisdom. She created a book in which she provided this knowledge in a clear and concise way to people in the West and it became a best seller. Likewise, the proof that this wisdom served was in herself, by curing that cancer through meditation, psychotherapy and changes in her lifestyle.
After this book, Louise continued writing until the end of her days, giving lectures, making documentaries and motivating thousands of people around the world. She lived to be 90 years old and left a publishing house with her name.
