Will Smith – Talent, Skill, Success

I'm motivated by fear fear you know fear of what that fear of fear I hate being scared to do something and I think what developed in my in my early days was the the attitude that I started attacking things that I was scared of you can't be scared to die for the truth the truth is the only thing that's ever going to be constant the separation of talent and skill is one of the the the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are trying to excel who have dreams that want to do things talent you have naturally skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft there's no easy way around it no matter how talented you are your talent is going to fail you if you're not skilled you know if you don't study if you don't work really hard and dedicate yourself to being better every single day you'll never be able to communicate with with people with your artistry the way that you want I've never really viewed myself as particularly talented where I excel is ridiculous sickening work ethic you know while the other guys sleeping I'm working what other guys eaten I'm work of the only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I'm not afraid to die on a treadmill you might have more talent than me you might be smarter than me but if we get on the treadmill together right there's two things you're getting off first I'm going to die it's really that simple the first step before anybody else in the world believes it is you have to believe we didn't grow up with the sense that where we were was where we were going to be you know we grew up with the sense that where we were almost didn't matter we were becoming something greater now don't you ever tell me it's something that you can do you don't try to build a wall you don't set out to build a wall you say I'm going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid and you do that every single day so assume you have them all from there you do what you need to do I think that there's a certain delusional quality that all successful people have to have you have to believe that something different can have it there's no reason to have a plan B because it distracts from plan a being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity why would you be realistic what's the point of being realistic I'm gonna do it it's done it's already done the second I decide is done it's already done so now we just gotta wait for y'all to see I want to represent an idea I want to represent possibilities cuz there's a a redemptive power that making a choice has you know rather than feeling like you're at a fete to all the things that are happening make a choice right you just decide what it's going to be who you're gonna be how you're going to do it just decide greatness is not this wonderful esoteric illusive godlike feature that only the special among us are will ever taste it's something that truly exists in all of us it's very simple this is what I believe and I'm willing to die for it yeah period

  1. I don't want to believe in myself, I just wanna carry on with the shit I do (and badly) knowing that it's all going to end sooner or later.

  2. Will Smith is definitely the world's best actor in this time. Unfortunately he's extremely racist and takes sides with Hollywood. Unfortunately Will Smith doesn't appreciate all the help that Republicans are doing to stop the thousands of black abortions that take place every year. Republican's have tried to stop the free clinics that kill these innocent black children but unfortunately blacks are brainwashed in believing that Democrats love them. I'm glad I switched to the Republican Party and I'm trying to stop Democrats from killing 61% of all blacks. Hopefully blacks will wake up and thank God and Trump for closing down these diabolical clinics.

  3. Love this compilation! @DavidMartin Do you have a version without the song in the background? I'd love to show this video at a professional development, but I'm worried the music will make it too hard to hear the words.

  4. Talent you have naturally, Skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft.


  6. ROBERT VALENTINE FILMS loves this video, a man comes from nowhere and believes in himself. Makes it as a Global Super Star. Brilliant. xx

  7. If you put subtitles at 1:18 you will find the secret message that Will is trying to pass: "I never seen myself as talented, where I excel is GRID DICK TILLIS" I still haven't figured out what that is but will post an update once I find something on google about this skill.

  8. Ok Will if you believe that much in hard work why do you make it easy for your daughter Willow by introducing her to JayZ and for your son Jaden by producing his movies then?
    I hate the hypocrisy that says "if you believe, you can do anything" NO, there isn't a seat for everyone in the room of success! You can do everything necessary and still fail. You have to try though.

  9.  I love everything about Will Smith. He is not only very talented. Everyone can feel his beautiful soul. Only beautiful minds inspire others!!!
