Ask a group of people who their favorite actor is, and it’s basically a guarantee that Will Smith will be mentioned at least once. He’s funny, successful, attractive and has been called recently the most powerful actor in Hollywood. What a lucky guy, right? I’d submit that luck really doesn’t have much to do with Will Smith’s success. Just take a look at a few of the things he has said over the years:
“If it was something that I really committed myself to, I don’t think there’s anything that could stop me becoming President of the United States.”
“I don’t know what my calling is, but I want to be here for a bigger reason. I strive to be like the greatest who have ever lived.”
Our generation is in the middle of the most interesting time of life. We are trying to figure out what direction we want our lives to follow. Do I go to college? What/Who do I want to be when I’m older? How do I make it happen? It is human nature to want to succeed in anything we do. So we are naturally attracted to people that are successful in the areas of life that we are interested in. Business people want to be the next Warren Buffet. Inventors and entrepreneurs want to be the next Bill Gates. Actors want to be the next… Will Smith.
Will Smith is awesome. You never hear of him getting in trouble in the Beverly Hills bars. You never hear about “Will Smith’s drug problem.” You never hear about “Will Smith’s promiscuous sex-life.” He’s just a solid, motivated and principled family man. Oh yeah, and “the most powerful actor in Hollywood.”
