” I view myself as slightly above average in talent.
And where I excel is a ridiculous, sickening work ethic.”
~ Will Smith
Our “Focus more on purpose” topic is inspired by Will Smith. As I write this, the day before it’s posted, it’s Will Smith’s birthday. Happy Birthday Will! I’ve followed Will since earlier in his career and have a great respect for him! Why? During an interview at least 10 years ago he was discussing how committed he is to his greater purpose and how he doesn’t know what it is. Yet, he takes time every day to re-align his whole world to focus more on his purpose and said this is what makes him a great talent.
Will has always been this committed and deep. One of his quotes regarding commitment, “Whatever your dream is, every extra penny needs to be going to that.” He didn’t get wise and beginning waxing eloquently after his great success. He’s always talked about how we should all “focus more on purpose” of what we are yet to become.
Business Leaders need to focus much more on the purpose of their business and the roles each person plays. I always tell leaders to do this at least once a year. Keeping everyone focused and moving in the same and proper direction shouldn’t be an activity you do after everything else is complete. If you make it a focused priority everyone’s performance and focus will improve.
“The first step is you have to say that you can.”.
“Greatness is not this, wonderful, esoteric, elusive, god-like feature that only the special among us will ever taste. You know? It’s something that truly exists, in, all of us. It’s very simple, this is what I believe, and, I’m willing to die for it. Period. It’s that simple.”
“Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings & emotions.”
Birthday Boy Bonus Quotes:
“In my mind, I’ve always been an A-list Hollywood superstar. Y’all just didn’t know yet.”
“There’s no reason to have a plan B cause it distracts from plan A.”
“The first step before anyone else in the world believes it, is you have to believe it.”
