Will by Will Smith

Key Takeaways

  1. A name carries a lot of weight. Will got his name from his father and what it signifies is his greatest gift, will, the ability to overcome

  2. Obstacles can seem insurmountable if you look at it directly. To overcome anything, take it one step at a time. If you do that, you’re invincible

  3. His dad was street smart where his mom was book smart. His dad had a military mindset where every detail mattered and everything was a mission. His father taught him the value of hard work and discipline, his mother the power of education, and his grandma the power of love

  4. Will has an insanely vivid imagination, bordering on delusional. He can make himself believe nearly anything and spends much of his time in fantasy. This makes him an incredible storyteller and empath, but also made him an odd duck when he was young

  5. Nothing beats funny.

  6. Most wait for wisdom before taking action. That’s exactly backwards. We have to act and take risks before we can gain wisdom. The universe only teaches through experience

  7. Environment is critically important. Choosing where you live is as important as your spouse.

  8. The universe is magical, not logical. Don’t try to make it “sum”, understand it is complex and illogical

  9. There are only two human problems – knowing what you want, but not knowing how to get it. Not knowing what you want. – Stephen Covey. Clarity of vision makes things simple, brings clarity. It doesn’t make it easy, but it does shine the path forward
