Will Smith has become a global icon. Regardless of whether or not you like his movies, you undoubtedly recognize the actor. Casting him in a movie is as close to a guarantee of a blockbuster as possible in Hollywood.
But behind all the movies, TV shows, and albums, we haven’t seen how hard Will has worked to get to where he is today.
A few years ago, Will shared a glimpse of the mindset that has made him successful throughout the years in an interview with talk show host Tavis Smiley. If you haven’t seen it yet, I’d highly recommend spending a few minutes to watch the video below.
Make sure you pay close attention to how he describes his work ethic via his treadmill metaphor as well as how his mindset changes when he decides he wants to do something. He doesn’t simply wish to do it, he believes it’s already done and that the world just hasn’t seen it yet.
