The people that I’ve always respected and admired in my life are people that have worked hard for their success. I believe that anyone can be successful at something if they work hard enough to get there. My underlying value system has me programmed to work as hard as I can to achieve what I want in life. If I’m not successful, it only means that I’m not done yet.
One of the people that exemplifies the characteristics that I admire is Will Smith. In this compilation video, he talks about his belief system and how that system got him to where he is in his life.
I don’t aspire to be like Will Smith, but I do identify with a lot of the things that he says. Except the part about the treadmill (2:35 minutes in); he can have that.
I can never claim to be the hardest working person (in show business; hit me!) but I know that once you choose to do or choose to be, you’re half way there.
Life is too short to not commit so get out there and get it done.
