Many know Will Smith simply as the former rapper and actor of the famous TV Series “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and blockbuster lead for movies like Independence Day and iRobot. But to many of us Will Smith is much more than that. He is extremely intelligent and as a young man turned down a full scholarship at MIT to pursue his music career. As a devoted husband and father Will has demonstrated through various interviews that he relates a person’s success to their work ethic and has discussed at length his desire to go above and beyond what some people believe are achievalable.
I find Will’s interviews and speeches to be very motivating and wanted to show you one that brings together a few of my favorites. I am reaching towards achieving many goals that I have set for myself in 2012 and love watching videos like this to help me stay motivated and peak that determination to push forward and go the extra mile when frustration or fatigue is getting the best of me. I hope you enjoy this segment of the motivational video of the week and encourage you to pursue and find the videos, scriptures, or books that motivate you day to day.
“If we get on a treadmill together either you are getting off first or I am dying, it’s that simple.” ~ Will Smith
