Will Smith – His Take on Personal Development.
I recently found a YouTube clip of Will Smith and he talks about success, and manifesting his destiny.
He begins by stating this whole crazy idea of how your thoughts are physical. He then goes on and tries to grasp this entire passion that has gotten him to where he is today. It really is motivational listening to him talk about what drives him. He talked about focus, determination, passion, not letting anybody affect your belief in yourself, competitiveness. He also talks frankly about how greatness is achievable by all of us. He does not think he is particularly talented, he instead believes he is more driven than anyone… and that is what he attributes his success to.
My favorite point he made was when Will Smith said (at 2:49) “The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is that I am not afraid to die on a treadmill. You might have more talent than me; you might be smarter than me. But if we get on a treadmill there is two things that can happen. You’re getting off first or I’m gunna die.” I love that quote. Whenever I get into a competition I will literally give it every last ounce of effort until it is literally humanly impossible for me to do anything else.
And Will Smith does everything to the best of his ability. Because he wants his life to mean something by making other people’s lives better.
He believes that there needs to be a delusional aspect about someone before they can truly succeed. You are what you think you are. If you believe you are successful, then you are successful. If you believe you can’t do something, then you can’t do it. Basically thoughts are things.
Will talks about how if you decide what you want. And the universe will flow and get out of your way and help you achieve it. It needs an obsessive focus to achieve what you want. To achieve what you want.

How Do You Live?
These are great words to live by: a great way of seeing life.
What do you want out of life? What would you sacrifice to achieve it? You have the power within you to be as successful as Will Smith if you let yourself.
The problem is that most people don’t really know what they want out of life, and why they want it. It is extremely important to understand what you want and more importantly the reason for it. It acts like the propellant to drive you where you want to go. These are keys to manifesting your desires, your dreams.
Put Your Mind To It
You can achieve anything you put your mind to… and drive yourself towards. With the motivation of desire, you have the power to be the best at anything and achieve your dreams. Manifesting your dream life is as simple as knowing what you want and taking it.
There is no point to being good at something. Good only gets poor results. If you are good at something you stay where you are. You don’t get recognized. You don’t get rewarded. You just don’t get penalized.
Being excellent at something gives you good rewards. You are recognized, and you achieve some of what you want.
But being the best at something through hard tenacious work, by being persistent, and by “being the last person on that treadmill”, you get the best rewards. You get the best recognition. And you can achieve anything you can imagine.
But it is difficult to put in that hard work without knowing why you are doing it. That is why you must get clear focus as to why you want to achieve a goal, and be amazing exceptional at something.
And don’t let fear hold you back from manifesting your dreams. Embrace the unknown. Embrace the challenge. Embrace the possibility of failure because you can only grow by making mistakes. Instead fear staying where you are right now. Instead fear not reaching your full potential. And let that fear drive you to achieve all you can be.
You can do it!
