I love this quote from Will Smith: “In my mind, I’ve always been an A-list Hollywood superstar. Y’all just didn’t know yet.”

Will Smith Quote Always Superstar
“In my mind, I’ve always been an A-list Hollywood superstar. Y’all just didn’t know yet.” – Will Smith (Tweet That) | Share this Graphic on Pinterest | Share on Facebook

That is a powerful example of having the right mindset. He knew what he was before anyone else did. That is the attitude that got him to the top.

What about you? What’s hiding inside of you that the world will one day see?

Author of a best-selling novel? Creator of an innovative product? CEO of a Fortune 500 company? Parent to a yet unborn child?

Why not go ahead and declare that those things are already true? What harm could it do? None.

Don’t let the world tell you what you are. Be like Will Smith…be who you want to be in your mind. Today.

What are you already that no one else knows yet?

  1. Nancy Heidger Benavides says:

    Most people miss out on becoming all they could be simply because they relegate the lofty dreams they carry inside to the basement of mere fantasy. If you can dream it, you can be it.

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      So true and so SAD!

  2. Jon Stolpe says:

    Growing up near Philadelphia, I was a fan of DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince (Will Smith). As a high school student in the marching band, I had the opportunity to play at a Sixers game where Will Smith was shooting around during warm-ups. You can tell he had a drive.

    I’m a writer!

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      I now have the theme to Fresh Prince in my head. Thanks Jon 🙂

    I am the author of several best selling books… Look out world!

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      Now THAT is awesome!

      Is your first one out?

      1. Tiffany Olson says:

        No. Not even close. But I’m learning that if I do not speak my dreams out loud, they will never happen. I have quite a ways to go but every day I get one step closer.

      2. Matt McWilliams says:

        Very true!

        I’ve found that once you start writing it, you won’t be able to stop.

        I encourage you to “vomit” whatever you’ve got inside of you on the pages.

      3. Tiffany Olson says:

        I have definitely begun the vomit writing. There isn’t a clear path emerging at this point, but I’m still writing, and learning a great deal about myself in the process.

        Thank you for the encouragement, Matt. I enjoy your blog and admire what you have achieved.

      4. Matt McWilliams says:

        The process is pretty awesome. I think you’ll find that once you finish the first one, you’ll have the next four done in no time.

      5. Mark Sieverkropp says:

        Tiffany, I can tell you NOTHING is as cool as your first book launch! Keep at it! When you get ready to launch, let me know if I can help in any way!

      6. Tiffany Olson says:

        Thank you, Mark! I will definitely keep that in mind. You just made my day.☺

      7. Chris Naish says:

        The hardest part I found about writing a book is actually starting. Like Matt says just get something/anything down and before you know it the book almost starts writing itself. It’s like it takes on a life of it’s own almost! That’s my experience writing nonfiction.

      8. Matt McWilliams says:

        Love it Chris!

  4. Dan Erickson says:

    I’m already a great songwriter, poet, and novelist.
