    Great video guys! I loved the part about building the wall one brick at a time. That’s exactly how you have to think when building your business or anything in life – take it one brick, one bite at a time. Those small steps done consistently, overtime is what gets you to where you want to be – just make the choice and do it!.

    I also really liked when he said “If you’re not making someone else’s life better, you’re wasting your time.” That is so true! One of my favorite movie clips at the end too – very powerful!

    Very inspirational message. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks, Laura

      Laura,

      We got so much out of this video too. We found there was so much wisdom in what he said… true life lessons. And the video clip is one of our favorites too.

      Thanks!

    Thanks for posting. I have a lot of respect for Will Smith and his work. One of my favorite movies is “The Pursuit of Happiness” if you haven’t seen it, you’re missing one of his greatest movies. I saw an interview with his family and he is so real.

    God Bless,
    Trish

      Trish,

      We agree! It is one of the best movies ever… and Will Smith is so real. He has balanced success and fame while still being true to who he is. A great role model!

    Hello Pat and Lorna

    My husband and I are HUGE Will Smith Fans!! Will is an inspiration to all of us, from his profession to his family. He has accomplished so much in his life. I like the part in the video where Will states, “This is what i believe and Im willing to die for it-Period” He’s right- KISS! It is only complicated when you make it that way. The obvious can be so blind sometimes. Thank you for this post, I truly enjoyed it.

    Have a good One,
    Taralee Bernier

      Arthur and Taralee,

      We couldn’t agree with you more. As Pat always says… “Life is simple, people complicate it”. Will seems to have insight on so many aspects of life… yet he keeps it simple.

      Thanks!

    Fantastic video, I can not believe what an inspiration he is. I mean going back to the days where he played the role of the fresh prince of bel air to where he is now.

    It shows with the right attitude, the belief in the big picture and the willingness to achieve greatness without ever stopping until you have reached your goals, good things will happen.

    And all it takes is doing more than the person next to you.

    Thanks for the great post,
    Thomas Lierzer

      Thomas,

      He truly is an inspiration… and a great role model. It is a long way from the Fresh Prince to his mega-hit movies… but Will put in the same passion, heart and dedication in everything he did… and still does today.

      Thanks,

    THAT was AWESOME! I loved when Will said, “don’t have a plan B because it detracts from plan A” – I never thought of that! How many times have we been taught to have a plan B if something doesn’t work out… I have a new perspective.. thank you for that!

      Lesly,

      We agree… that is a new perspective we hadn’t heard before. Sure makes sense and is a powerful way to look at what you want to achieve. Go for it and accept nothing less.

      Thanks,

    Hey Pat and Lorna,

    Thank you for sharing this video, I love will smith and haven’t seen this one so it was a great. I love when he says right at the beginning, I just love living.

    Life is so much more fun when we strip back all the complications and just be happy with who we are and where we are going.

    Thank You So Much, this needs to be shared.

      Beth,

      It’s amazing no matter how many times we view this video, or read comments from others, we learn even more from it.

      Thanks for sharing some more great insight to these life lessons.

    Hi Pat , Thanks for sharing this video. I added it to my favorites. It’s great to see how Will and his family could accomplish so much in their lives. This video was very inspirational. When he said, you really got to focus and to attack your fear reminded me of myself. This is something I have said to myself constantly. Another thing he said is. To focus on making a difference was. Really awesome!

    Will Smith exhibits the best in the Human Spirit. The internal need to make a difference and leave this world a better place. I’ve watched this video many times and never tire of sound common sense Will radiates. Thanks Guys again for keeping the “Human Spirit” in plain sight.

    Pat and Lorna,

    Thanks for the video! Will Smith is one of the actors in Hollywood that I’ve always had respect for (and there aren’t many). He’s always good on camera.
