    Lessons On Success
    Will Smith
  • 2. Willard Christopher “Will” Smith, Jr. is an actor, film producer, and rapper. He’s experienced enormous success in film, television, as well as in the music industry. In the late 80’s, Will was a “somewhat” well-know rapper by the name of “The Fresh Prince.” In the 90’s he became quite popular via the television series
    “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
  • 3. Newsweek once called Will Smith, “the most powerful actor on the planet.”
    In the mid-90’s, Will began acting on the “big screen,” and he went on to star in numerous blockbuster hits. Will is the only actor to have eight consecutive films gross over $100 million in the U.S. box office (four of the films took in over $500 million in the global box office). Will has been nominated for four Golden Globe Awards, two Academy Awards, and has won several Grammy Awards. Here are
    7 Amazing Lessons from Will Smith:
  • 4. Lesson 1 : Be Unrealistic
    Nothing great has ever been achieved by a realist. If realist ran the world, we’d be living in dark caves, without any mode of transportation or communication. What’s the lesson? Be unrealistic; set big hairy audacious goals that even intimidate you. Stretch yourself to your limits, you are capable of much more than you give yourself credit for.
  • 5. “What’s the point in being realistic?…Edison wasn’t realistic…”
  • 6. Lesson 2 : Be Single-Minded
    Focus on your goal to the exclusion of everything else! Broken focus is the number one reason people fail. If your focus is steady, and if you give your efforts toward your greatest strengths, you will experience success. Single-mindedness is critical!
  • 7. “Having a plan B only distracts you from Plan A.”
  • 8. Lesson 3 : Strive to be Great
    Greatness has never been achieved by people who were striving to be average. To be great you must strive for greatness! You must strive to help a great number of people!
  • 9. “I strive to be like the greatest people who have ever lived.”
  • 10. Lesson 4 : See it in Your Mind First
    If you can’t see it, you can’t have it. You must see it in your mind before it will ever become a reality. You must be convinced of your success. You must live in the new home, drive the new car, and see your amazing spouse in your imagination, before it will ever become a reality.
  • 11. “In my mind, I’ve always been an ‘A-list’ Hollywood superstar. Y’all just didn’t know yet.”
  • 12. Lesson 5 : Have Faith
    You must believe in your ability before anyone else will. You couldn’t successfully run for president, …if you believed that you didn’t deserve to be president. You must have faith in your ability to succeed. You must be the first member of your fan club.
  • 13. “If it was something that I really committed myself to, I don’t think there’s anything that could stop me from becoming President of the United States.”
  • 14. Lesson 6 : Ask “Why Not You?”
    Most people overestimate other people’s abilities and underestimate their own. Don’t place others on a pedal stool, while you view yourself as insignificant. You must always ask yourself, “Why not me, why not now?” Is anyone any better than you, …or any more deserving? Sure, we all have our areas of ignorance, but we also have our areas of genius, areas of limitless creativity.
  • 15. “Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.”
  • 16. Lesson 7 : Press Forward
    Always be willing to forgive and move on, understand that people who criticize you are the ones who need love the most. My father always says, “Hurt people, hurt people.” Press forward whenever you’re confronted with negativity, never let hate enter your thoughts.
  • 17. “Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, because hate in your heart will consume you too.”
  • 18. In summary, remember to be unrealistic and single-minded, while striving to be great. See what you want in your mind first, have faith, ask why not you, and then press forward!
  • 19. Money and success don't change people; they merely amplify what is already there.
