Will Smith is one of my most-admired actors. I love the way he brings life to the characters.. the way he delivers his lines.. the way he speaks. He's brilliant in movies like Bad Boys, MIB, Ali, Enemy of the State, I Am Legend and Pursuit of Happyness. I haven't seen a single episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air but people say he's great in that show. He's very talented, he's got an impressive resume and he has this amazing intellect that I find intimidating, yet admirable.
This is what I believe and I am willing to die for it. Period.
There's no easy way around it. No matter how talented you are, your talent is going to fail you if you're not skilled.. if you don't study.. if you don't work really hard and dedicate yourself to being better every single day.
You don't try to build a wall. You don't set out to build a wall. You don't say I'm gonna build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that's ever been built. You say "I'm gonna lay this brick as perfectly a brick can be laid." and you do that every single day and soon you'll have a wall.
If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're just wasting your time.
The first step before anybody else in the world believes it, is that you have to believe it. There's no reason to have a plan B because it distracts you from plan A.
I'm gonna do it. It's done. It's already done. The second I decide it's done, it's already done.
Our thoughts.. our feelings.. our dreams.. our ideas.. are physical.
Make a choice. Just decide. What its gonna be. Who you're gonna be. How you're gonna do it. Just decide.. and then from that point, the universe is gonna get out your way.
Don't be scared to die for the truth.
Don't ever let somebody tell you you can't do something. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can't do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period. - Christopher Gardner (The Pursuit of Happyness)
You may not be a Will Smith fan, but I think you'll agree with me when I say that his words are gold.
