So lately, I have been browsing the web a lot from stories, to photos, to movies, to inspirational speakers, to random videos, to inspiring entrepreneurs, upcoming musicians, etc… The list goes on and on. I came across this Will Smith video on a young entrepreneur blog, and this video was just absolutely moving. Check it out real quick.
Will Smith Wisdom Quotes
“He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right”
“Nothing is unrealistic. Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity. Why would you be realistic? What is the point of being realistic? The second I decide it is done, it is already done. It just seems like a ridiculous idea to embrace the idea that it’s not going to happen.”
“There is no shortcut to success. There is talent and there is skill. Talent we have naturally. Skill is only developed by hours and hours of beating on your craft.”
“While the other guy is sleeping, I am working. While the other guy is eating, I am working. No matter how talented you are, your talent is going to fail you if you are not skilled. You have to dedicate yourself to being better everyday.”
“Don’t think that where we are is where you are going to be, or where we are going to end up. Where you are almost does not matter.”
“You have to believe! The first step before anyone else is going to believe, it is you have to believe it. You can’t have a plan B because that distracts from plan A.”
“To be as successful as I want to be, it takes a desperate obsessive focus.”
“Represent possibilities. I believe that I can create whatever I want to create. Before anyone else can believe it, you have to believe it.”
“There’s a certain delusional quality that all successful people have to have. You have to believe that something different than what has happened can happen.”
I’ve never watched a video of someone that has had so many moving quotes in just a short time frame. Everything he says is dead on how I feel and how I have always felt, and it’s such a liberating feeling being reminded of this. I would just suggest watching this 10 minute video of Will Smith, and then proceed to watch his movie Pursuit of Happiness. Both are extremely moving, hopefully this lifted you in the way it lifted me.
I’ll never forget this quote: “He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right”
Follow your dreams, I’m following mine. I went from being broke to 2.5 million dollars; back to broke again. I sat at the bottom, and became overly depressed and manic, but I fixed myself, and now I am back on my way to millions again. I am already $150k there.
