Here’re four perspectives from Will Smith that well worth your 5 minutes to read and instill in your mind.
- You are a product of your own decisions and never of anybody’s opinion.
Smith once quoted “Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings and emotions.” How many times have you done a thing to get social approval? How many moments were there when you held back of actions for you know others are exactly on the opposite end of the road you are trying to take? Hearing a lot of opinions and personal interpretations of people on a single matter is an indispensable part of us as human beings. Considering the feelings of other people on your decisions is good if and only if, it makes you happy. There is nothing wrong with listening to what constituents say about, but making them control your entirety is totally a different kind of story.
- There are so many blocks along the way and your problem today is just another rock on to the road to pass through.
One of the famous quotations of Will Smith goes like “I wake up every morning believing today is going to be better than yesterday.” He must be right. The past is gone. What tomorrow shall be, is still unknown. Today is what you have. So focus on it. Make the most of what you have. If so happen, things come in between that hinder you from pursuing what you want, bear in mind that there is nothing given to you that you cannot endure. For the toughest battles are given to the strongest warriors. Keep going and improving yourself. Let the obstacles be your stepping stone towards success.
