The best answer I can give at this time is: go watch the Will Smith movie, In Pursuit of Happyness.
It is an excruciating film to watch -- the character goes through hell before he achieves even a hint of success -- but it's an inspiring movie, too.
It's also based on a true story.

PS -- Will Smith's acting is breathtaking in the movie. You feel for his character.
