Will Smith is freaking brilliant. Maybe you don’t want to be a TV / Movie / Hip Hop mogul. Regardless, this dude has a phenomenal personal philosophy that can help you do whatever it is that you do.

Please note that the original video I posted was removed from YouTube. I found one that was similarly inspiring, if not identical to the first I published here. Let me know if this one changes.

Also, here’s a link to the book he referenced The Alchemist It’s a good, quick read suitable for adults and kids. I like to gift it to new dads and they enjoy reading it to their children.

Who knew Will Smith could have so much insight? People at any age could gain from his wisdom whether you’re a recent grad, parent or retiree! Good stuff.

I finally made the time to come back and watch this clip.
Will Smith is THE MAN! Excellent post, Ted. I’ve always admired Will, and hadn’t seen this vid before.
Hope all is well on your side of the world.

Everything is great here, Jane. Thanks for asking. I’ve taken a little bit of a summer vacation from the blog but I’ll be back to writing regularly soon!

Does anyone have this video? It looks like YouTube removed it.

I updated the video with a different, but suitable, alternative. What do you think about this one?

Not bad, he is a very accomplished person. I like that he is authentic off the screen as well as always does clean, respectable films and music. Never vulgar or disrespectful.
