Before anything in life can ever be accomplished it must first be achieved in your mind. In the following video you are given an excellent example of what it takes to achieve greatness and success. I strongly believe that greatness is in each person but it is up that individual to excel and achieve greatness. A lot of people love to dream and think about what it would be like like to succeed in life, but very very few are willing to sacrifice to reach those dreams. Will Smith is an excellent example of what drive and determination can accomplish for someone with dreams of success and greatness. While everyone may not have the same level of talent, we all have the ability to work hard each day to make our dreams come true. Hard work will always beat out talent when talent does not work hard enough. It takes motivation and a excitement for living each day in order to have the right mental toughness to ever achieve anything great. It is always interesting to take a closer look at the different celebrities that have achieved the dreams and succeed. While most of the focus is on the celebrities out doing foolish things, most of them have a unmatched work ethic to get to where they are. Just like the end of this video states, "You don't set out to build a wall, you have to lay one brick at a time, and you must lay that brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid". This is something that can be applied to all aspects of life, whether your working out or just cleaning the house. While Will Smith may not be the most talented actor in Hollywood, he is most definitely considered amongst the best and most well known, strongly as a result for a passion and love for what he does. By simply outworking his competition he is able to make up for any lack of talent or areas he may not be the best at. For some closing thoughts, I just wish that each person would live up to their full potential and don't let others derail you of your dreams. If you want to succeed or have big dreams, make sure you do everything in your power to reach these goals and know that no matter what gets in your way your going to accomplish them. By waking up each day and living it as it was your last, put in every ounce of your energy to achieve these dreams of greatness.
