“Just decide. What it’s going to be, who you’re going to be, how you’re going to do it — just decide. And from that point, the Universe is going to move out of your way.”
In this throwback clip from The Tavis Smiley Show, Will Smith speaks what characteristically sets him apart, and has inspired him to be the person he has become. From his incomparable work ethic to swearing by “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho, Smith drives home the fact that there is infinite power within us to become who we truly are destined to be– we just have to choose to do so. After Monday’s post and watching this clip in its entirety, I have to say that I wholeheartedly agree with him. Each day that we wake up, we make decisions. No matter how big or small they may be, each choice we make has an effect on who we will be come. No one is threatening us to be what we are not, so it is up to us to take full advantage of the environment around us in order to think, act and become different.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” – Philippians 4:8
