Another great video about Will Smith and his view on what it takes to succeed. I had posted another video last week where he discusses how hard work was the reason why he has had such successes in his life. In this video, he refers to it as “running”. The harder you run and the more you keep at it, even if you want to give up and quit, if you can keep on running, there is nothing that can stop you. If you condition yourself to push your threshold for enduring something painful further, then when faced with a painful situation, you will not be tempted to back down. So that’s running.
The other part is the “reading”. He is absolutely right that every single problem that you can think of, someone else has experienced it and written about it. Not just in books anymore, but as articles, blogs, and such on the internet. So the more you inform yourself, the more powerful you will become.
Basically Running & Reading can be translated into Discipline & Knowledge. These are your keys to life according to Mr. Smith. Enjoy the video below:
