Aside from being a hilarious and talented entertainer, Will Smith has a tremendous desire for others to live greater lives. It’s funny how people anticipate “money shot” Q&A from celebrities about who they’re dating, what they’re driving, etc. In this montage of several interviews, it’s clear that Mr. Smith has been past the trivial rubbish for a while… and has been generously providing viewers with meaningful content about secrets to success for years.
It is wonderful to see an uber-successful celebrity using fame to inspire millions of others- because in the end it’s all about paying it forward to others.
One of the quoted highlights of the video:
“Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity. What’s the point of being realistic? It’s unrealistic to walk into a room and flip a switch, and lights come on. That’s unrealistic. Fortunately, Edison didn’t think so. It’s unrealistic to think you’re gonna bend a piece of metal, and fly people over the ocean, in that metal. That’s unrealistic! But fortunately, the Wright brothers and others didn’t believe that. And it just seems like such a ridiculous- ridiculous- idea to me, to embrace the idea that ‘It’s not gonna happen’ and ‘That’s not real‘…as SOON as you say it, now you’ve just made that real.”
