Will Smith Running and Reading - Key to Life Success Speech
Stephen Williams stashed this in Running
“The keys to life are running and reading. When you're running, there's a little person that talks to you and says, "Oh I'm tired. My lung's about to pop. I'm so hurt. There's no way I can possibly continue." You want to quit. If you learn how to defeat that person when you're running. You will how to not quit when things get hard in your life. For reading: there have been gazillions of people that have lived before all of us. There's no new problem you could have--with your parents, with school, with a bully. There's no new problem that someone hasn't already had and written about it in a book.”
Two of my favorite things, since I was 12.
Jada Pinkett and Will Smith?
Motivational Speeches and Meaning of Life?
Running and Reading?
It was the essence of the paragraph... Running and reading.
I was so busy running that I skipped reading the paragraph!
So by reading he's specifically referring to books?
Aww, I'm blushing. But I know that feeling. Sometimes I lose hours to reading things here.
Books can be read at leisure. In depth and over and over again. They are an extremely important source of learning
Will Smith on Running
"When you're running, there's a little person that talks to you and says: "Oh I'm tired. My lung's about to pop. I'm so hurt. There's no way I can possibly continue!" You want to quit..."
"If you learn how to defeat that person when you're running. You will know how to not quit when things get hard in your life."
Our take: Will picture it in a great way, when things get hard you must not quit, you must develop this endurance mentality. When things are hard you are able to endure and overcome, any problem that you may face in life. It's indispensable in order to succeed to know how to rebound from difficult situations, how to act when you're are tired not feeling like doing the things you should be doing. Persist, resist, push harder, remember your goals let them be the fire that is inside of you, a fire that will make you do things when things are not doable in others opinion.
