9 Will Smith Quotes For Inspiration

 

Will Smith Life Quote“Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too.”

That’s how it is for everyone of us. “Throughout life”, meaning life doesn’t stop for any of us.  And along with that, the 7 billion people on this planet are all here to stay, and some of them are bound to make you feel less-than-stellar, one time or another.

So don’t get too affected by them or even allow them to bring you down. Just let it go, and move on with life. Let God, or well if you don’t believe in God, let the universe deal with them on its own.

 

will smith money quote“We spend money that we do not have, on things we do not need, to impress people who do not care.”

Is money controlling your life? Are you working hard for money to get luxuries and other stuff for a certain kind of image you want to portray?

Money is important in life, but it’s more important to not be consumed by it. Remember that there’s more to life than just buying things. Go out and live.

 

will smith mediocrity ali quote“Being realistic is the most common path to mediocrity.”

Hey nothing wrong with being realistic. We’re only human.

But don’t ever let the idea of being realistic hold you back. Being realistic doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take risks. It shouldn’t scare you! Don’t be mediocre. Work hard for what you want, even if what you want seems crazy to others.

 

will smith happy“Money & success don’t change people; they merely amplify what is already there.”

You’re totally special and entirely amazing the way you are. You have unique talents.

You have natural abilities. They all make up for the only [insert your name] that is in this world.

Too bad that a lot of people think money and a proven track record are needed to soar in life. You don’t. Give yourself a chance, and try, you can pretty much do anything.

 

will smith quote about life“Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings & emotions”.

Stop caring about what others think of you, especially from people you hardly even know!

Stop being so affected by the things they say or do to the point where your mind is clouded by them and your left with nothing but unhappy feelings inside.

Let these unimportant people go by your life. You don’t know them well, so don’t let them impact you in ways you don’t want.

 


will smith i am legend“You can cry, ain’t no shame in it. “

If you’re sad, express it. We’ve created ideas around crying today such that people repress themselves, which isn’t healthy.

Crying is a very natural thing for all of us. Don’t be ashamed about it just because you’re human.

 

 

will smith school fresh prince“The things that have been most valuable to me I did not learn in school. “

Getting an education may be important, but that’s not all to life.

You can learn a huge load outside of school, not by a teacher. And you don’t need to be validated by grades. Grades don’t judge your degree of competence.

Go out and experience life. Your very own experience is a great teacher on its own and the lessons you learn will stick with you for life.

 

 

will smith Inspiration“The first step is you have to say that you can. “

It’s all about attitude.

Whatever goal you want to reach, whatever you want to do in life, your success originates from your attitude.

And it’s got to be a good one. Believe that you can, and you’ll never know what you can achieve in life.

 

 

And my all time favourite quote…

will smith workout gym“The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is that I’m not afraid to DIE on a treadmill. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, but if we get on a treadmill together, there are two things:

1- You’re getting off first

OR

2- I’m gonna DIE

It’s really that simple”

 

Pure determination, pure confidence.

Nothing more, nothing less. Look at Will Smith today.

Work hard, and you’ll definitely get what you want in life.

    The above fits my situation right now!

    Thank you so much! I’m not gonna let haters to affect me a bit. I believe their hatred will make me stronger each day and I’ll become wiser each day too :) Thanks so much, Alden Tan for this article :)

    What a great person Will Smith is!
    I think he’s one of the most talented people out there. He can do anything, music, dancing, acting, name it.

    Here’s 2 more inspirational quotes from him :

    In my mind, I’ve always been an A-list Hollywood superstar. Y’all just didn’t know yet.

    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 people who have ever lived.

    Will my Pastor shared your Addicted to Success Wednesday night bible study. To show us who we are and can be in the same example. I lost my job as a flight attendant and my dream is to be an entrepreneur. I strive very hard to put out in the atmosphere and believe in myself. That I can do it I was there when Bishop Eddie Long introduce it to the NewBirth Family. I am going to fullfill my destiny if I have to die trying.

    ‘Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like’.
    – Will Smith?
    This is clearly not an original quote. It would be better attributed to Victor Papanek who in his book (Design for the real world,1971) wrote: ‘Too many people buy things they don’t need, with money they don’t have, in order to impress neighbours who don’t care”

    Will Smith was about 3 years old when Papanek wrote that line.
