Monday Morning Motivation: Will Smith On Success

Most folks are familiar with Will Smith, the super successful “A-List” actor who has been featured in a number of well-known Hollywood movies. But, did you know, Will Smith is also an “A Player” all-around? It’s true..

Will Smith is a ‘Pinnacle Performer’ of the highest order with an unwavering determination and drive to succeed that fuels his high achievement. 

As you’ll see on the outstanding motivational video posted below, Will Smith has much to say about what it takes to succeed. My personal favorite is this..

Will-Smith-Perfect Brick

To me, this one quote is success achievement in a nutshell.  Successfully achieving goals doesn’t begin with the goal. The goal is the wall.  If you want the goal, you must start with the first step. Lay that first “perfect brick” on the foundation and repeat the process day-after-day until you build that great wall.

This success mindset works for any goal. Trying to lose 50 pounds? There’s an extremely high chance you won’t do that this week without a rather invasive surgical procedure. But you can lose 3-5 pounds this week and next week and the week after and, before long, you will achieve that 50 pound weight loss goal. 

This success mindset certainly works for sales and customer service professionals…

Don’t try to be a sales superstar RIGHT NOW! Focus on developing your sales skill set  and continuous improvement to master your execution and be pro-active in your day-to-day selling activities and you will achieve that goal.

Don’t try and be a world-class customer service company (or representative) RIGHT NOW! Focus on making each and every customer interaction perfect and, in time, you will build that wall too!

And, of course, if you get stuck with either of those you can always contact me. Like Home Depot says, You Can Do It, I Can Help!

Make a Great Day!

Steve 🙂
