Will Smith's Rules for Success.

Newsweek called him “the most powerful actor in Hollywood” and is the most bankable star worldwide according to Forbes. He’s worth over $250 million. He’s Will Smith and here are his ten rules for success:
  1. Don’t listen to the little man. Don’t let other people tell you what you can and what you can’t do. Don’t let their assumptions stop you from doing what you love or what you think is best for you. Other people will always try to stop you if you decide to do something that’s different than what they are doing, because that’s how society works. Take charge of your life don’t let others make your decisions, if you believe in something, take the leap of faith and see where that leads you – if you fail, good – you gained valuable experience; if you succeed, well you succeeded. Period.

  2. Where you are isn’t where you are going to be. “If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.” – Jim Rohn. There’s an Arab proverb that states that you should write the bad things that happen to you in the sand, so that they can be easily erased from your memory. Your past doesn’t define you, and where you are is just temporary. If you are feeling stuck, it’s time to rewire your brain and focus on the bright future ahead of you.

  3. Make a choice. You can’t make a difference in your life until you make a decision. Just decide what is going to be, who are you going to be and how you are going to do it- that’s the first step. We are who we choose to be.

  4. Have a purpose. When you discover and live true to your life purpose in the highest possible way, your soul will “sing” in a way you’ve never “seen” before. It’s a feeling you’ll know when you realize it. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, or what you do. As long as you wish to live a more meaningful and conscious life, you need to have a life purpose.

  5. Be great. “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. And that’s all I need to know, so from there you do what you need to do.” --Will Smith

  6. Commit. You will absolutely never succeed if you don’t stay committed to your decisions. Never.

  7. Don’t be outworked. “The majority of people who aren’t getting the places they want or aren’t achieving the things that they want in are usually getting out-hustled. It’s usually based on missing crucial opportunities. If you stay ready, you don't have to get ready.

  8. Work on your skills. The separation of talent and skill is one of the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are trying to excel, who have dreams, who want to do things. Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft. Most people see the outcome, they don’t see the hours that has gone into it, they don’t see the hustle – they think it’s about talent, but that’s not the case.

  9. Let fear motivate you. F.E.A.R – ‘Forget Everything And Run‘ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The choice is yours. It’s not easy to face your fears and push through them, but it’s essential in order to succeed in life.

  10. Be amazing at what you do. You don’t have to be amazing at first, but if you follow all these tips – you will become amazing at your craft. And from that point on, you will be unstoppable.
