WILL SMITH: 5 Lessons You Taught Me

Buenos Dias

If you've been watching my instastories you'll know that #WillSmith has the BEST insta acc rn!!!😍😍😍
it's so LIT!🀀πŸ”₯ @willsmith
Not only does he post some of the most inspirational & motivational videos you'll ever see in your lifetime but he also has a vlog going on of his daily adventures. Showcasing just what a truly DTE human being he is as well as the normality of his most extraordinary lifestyle.
I've both wondered & admired that he'd hadn't a social media presence over the years. So I'm unequivocally entertained by his BIG BANG step out to insta & YouTube which has seen such a successful massive following already.

Willard Carroll Smith Jr. (born September 25, 1968) is an American actor, producer, rapper, comedian, and songwriter. In April 2007, Newsweek called him "the most powerful actor in Hollywood". Smith has been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards and two Academy Awards, and has won four Grammy Awards.

Smith has been ranked as the Most Bankable Star Worldwide by Forbes.[6] As of 2014, 17 of the 21 films in which he has had leading roles have accumulated worldwide gross earnings of over $100 million each, five taking in over $500 million each in global box office receipts. As of 2016, his films have grossed $7.5 billion at the global box office.

He is the ONLY ACTOR to have eight consecutive films gross over $100 million in the domestic box office, eleven consecutive films gross over $150 million internationally, and eight consecutive films in which he starred, open at the number one spot in the domestic box office tally.

Will Smith : 
5 Lessons You Taught Me

5. The Pursuit of HappyNess
{HappYness with a Y}πŸ™ƒ

Probably, if not, his Most famous quote of all time. Said by his character to his son, Jaden in a moment of true fatherly bonding. This movie was such a powerful portrayal of the sheer tenacity of the human spirit. The truest meaning of "going the distance"

I can't even fathom the DEPTHS of character this dude reached to not only pursue his dream but also deal with having a family & a little person depending entirely on you. But then STILL taking the time to ensure that your kid knows that He Should DREAM BIG & never give up no matter what!\
Seriously how he didn't win an oscar for this I'll never know. Infact he deserves TEN of them just for this performance all.
Coz as fun and awesome as his other action packed roles are. This was Singularly & uncontestably his most significantly gut wrenching performance of pure acting godhood.

4. Early Often 
{Fail x 3😊}

Failure is a massive part of success. They go hand in hand. People often quit early & often & Backwards as soon as they fail. but it's the best part of a journey because you get to learn & do better. To be in competition with yourself to be better than the you that you were yesterday.
Watch this amazing video by Martin Sosa of Peak Your Mind
It perfectly encapsulates the power of Will Smith & furthermore showcases all his latest updates

3. Selfie Selflessly Self-Love
{Try sayin' that 5 times fast}

Surround yourself with only those that are going to lift you higher. Those that are going to fan the flames of your being & passion. That are going to support you even when you burn.
I admit I unintentionally remained with the people that are constantly negative, skeptical or otherwise close-minded to anything other than what is social been acceptable to them growing up. But removing myself from those toxic relationships has been a godsend. Because it is only then that you have the proper room in your life for the right kinds of relationship. Birthed from pure & mutual encouragement to your souls.

I've since found someone who completely believes in me, is constantly encouraging the talents that I'm most passionate about & is entirely patient when I veer slightly ofcourse lol.
I can't tell you how this feels. To have someone treat you the way you would a massive celebrity that you admire. To have someone always be more interested in what's doing in your life {I admit this makes you sometimes complacent in checking up on them}. Just to have someone, whether a friend, whether a soul mate or whether a family member. Makes all the difference.

2. Ridiculous Work Ethic
{Don't reach for the stars if ya ain't willin' to build the rocket ship}

Probably my personal favorite quote of his specifically because of the way in which he says it. The tone, the determination & the way he emphasisizes the word DIE. It is LEGEND!

It's not any stretch to say Will is one of, if not, the most hard working individual you'll ever know or hear of. Most because his actions have spoken miles and miles for what his words have stated here.

Hard work beats Talent. But it's not JUST the work. It's the maddening, deafening, quakening desire to NEVER stop! to be consistently at it until either it breaks or you do. But even at the breaking point do we get the chance to rebuild ourselves into a whole different kinda beast...

1. Stay Smilin'
{Feel the motion of the Ocean. Action creates reaction}

The world is but a mirror and sometimes all it does is simply reflect back to you the energy you generate.
Horrible customer service? Smile through it
Terrible relationship departure? Smile through it
Contemptible work conditions? Smile through it.
Failure upon Failure upon Failure upon Failure upon Failure? SMile ThRough it!
Seriously I've found that if you just hold on to that smile just alittle longer, it could make all the difference.

Once we were receiving horrible customer service & even though my family was getting frustrating, by just holding on to that smile & treating the aforamentioned person with joy & warmth, changed everything around. She "thawed" out as it were & returned the smiles. Know what this won us? VIP experiences for me and the fam. And by VIP, I mean she personally saw to it that all her buddies hooked us up with all the fun stuff.

Another was when I was at a concert in the "Golden Circle" section. The weather had been choppy that day But luckily one of us thought to bring raincoats. It started to rain & somehow my raincoat ended up being held up by a bunch of people to hide from the rain. Now I love love the rain & can run around for hours in it but the point was I could've been Miff'd that these randoms tore up my raincoat because they didn't have the sense to bring their own & instead stole mine without even bothering to ask me lol but I didn't. I stayed calm, humble & enjoy the rain. Now anyone who's been to Golden Circle will Know just how unbearably squashed you can get there once the main action starts. But because of my "patience" & smiles, this didn't seem to be a factor here. Everyone who'd benefited from my raincoat formed a sort of protective barrier around me! I could stand in piece with ample arm length room around me while everyone else was getting pushed and shoved every which way.

"Anything is possible if you've got enough Nerve." ~JK Rowling. 

Ms. Rowling, Steve Jobs, Ricard Branson, Oprah, Ellen Degeneres, Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Steven Spielberg, Trevor Noah and the list goes on and on. What do they all have in common?

They are YOU!

Yes, they started out just like you, regular, human, with regular families, regular friends, regular skills. But they Dreamed, oh boy did they ever Dream. More importantly, they put in the hard work, the maximum effort & that is truly how they ended up where they are today. You don't need 7 secrets, 20 techniques or an all weekend program to be successful. You need only realize that EVERYONE who ever accomplished anything started exactly where you will start. Once you do, all that anxiety & doubt will disappear, in its place, a beautiful and powerful Magic will start to grow.

The Magic of YOU!

So I beseech you, start to Dream again, start to Believe in You because I already do. I have faith that all of you can & will accomplish incredible and insurmountable feats. Your dream is still there, I promise you it's still there. Reach out and Soar with it.

"Let the world tremble as it senses all that you are about to accomplish"
