Will Smith's Wisdom
Greatness is not this […] god-like feature that only the special amongst us will ever taste. It exist in all of us. It’s really simple: This is what I believe and I’m willing to die for it. […] You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, but if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things, you’re getting off first or I’m gonna die, it’s really that simple.
I’ve never seen myself as particularly talented. Where I excel, is ridiculous, sickening work ethic. While the other guys are sleeping, I’m working. While the other guys are eating, I’m working.
Being realistic is the most common road to mediocrity.
