    The whole point of this quote suggests that we should never stop working on ourselves, untill we have reached all our goals in life. Not one single person is worth giving everything up , even though sometimes it may feel like it. At the end of the day, you will always have yourself to rely on, especially when the person you thought would always stay decides to leave. More people need to know this.

    It's easy to be yourself when you're effing Will Smith. No disrespect.

    "Theory of Attraction" bullshit, 100% survivorship bias. In tech, "The Innovator's Dilemma." Will Smith is an attractive, smart, talented guy & now he's got money & deep-pockets connections willing to put more money on Will, but there's 100,000 other equally or MORE capable Will Smiths who struggle. D'ya think they ascribe to this? What keeps THEM going day after day? Because that's what matters to you & me. Sales is one area where pablum gets tested every day; if you have a Will Smith type product, does it sell itself? Customers come to you? You just sit back & collect orders? Just try that; you might get by 1 or 2 quarters, but all those other 100,000 Will Smiths out there busting ass, showing up every day, competing, innovating, will in pretty short order catch up & surpass you and then you're fucked. Most times successful people mis-attribute why they succeeded: "I'm talented," attraction, blah, blah; a big chunk of the time after the fundamentals, it's "right place / right time" aka "timing," or luck. But how can "timing" work for the rest of us? Persistence, and relationship. There will always be a *next* deal; become the *insider candidate* for that. Will doesn't bother showing up at the table b/c y'know, "Theory of Attraction" says they'll just call him, and he's right -- if no one else is there. Get a seat at the table, and you'll be there when the next deal comes along. Because you built & maintained the *relationship,* and you *persisted.*

    But chasing someone is exactly how he got his job in the M.I.B.

    Will Smith can't sing. There I said it. Robin Williams singing was 10x better

    Thank you. I'm very insecure at the moment and even if there is a lot of hate in the comments so far, it helped me a bit feeling not totally lost. Thanks!

    Like his acting, most of his advice is just platitudinal banality.

    Yea, but if no one ever pursues anyone else, and we all just focus inward.... how do we ever get together?

    What if the right people are waiting for the right people to come into their life and no right people come into your life because they are waiting? Haha
