Will Smith has come a long way in life, from achieving modest fame from his rap music days to in the late 1980’s to his popular TV serial days in 1990’s and his rise to being one of the highest paid Hollywood stars in recent years.
What has been his inspiration ? What drives him to keep performing ? Did luck play an important role in his success or is he naturally gifted ? A lot of critics have said that Will has been very lucky to have made it this far.
In the video Will talks about how hard it has been for him to reach this level, he agrees that you need some talent but backs the fact that its only hard work and more hard work and even more hard work to perfecting the skill that you have.
His secret to success is self belief – you decide what you want, who you want to be, and live by this mantra every day.
“I don’t know what my calling is, but I want to be here for a bigger reason. I strive to be like the greatest people who have ever lived.” – Will Smith
“Make a choice of what you want, who you want to be and how you’re going to do it. The universe will get out of your way.” – Will Smith
“If it was something that I really committed myself to, I don’t think there’s anything that could stop me becoming President of the United States.” – Will Smith
In my mind, I’ve always been an A-list Hollywood superstar. Y’all just didn’t know yet. – Will Smith
Success is all about self belief and your commitment to what you do in life. What are you willing to give up to be successful ? How committed and disciplined are you to make it to the top ?
Have a Happy Sunday and a Great Week Ahead 🙂
