What Will Smith Taught Me About Building My Company

6

Whether you think of funny man Will Smith from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air or the alien butt-kicking Will Smith from Independence Day…

You are thinking of a man with great success and a flourishing career.

Will Smith has built a reputation for producing quality, money-making films and delivering successes more than he fails.

You can tell that he is the type of guy who puts in the work and takes the time to fine tune the details. A look at this quote from Will says it all:

“You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say ‘I’m going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built.’ You don’t start there. You say, ‘I’m going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid.’ You do that every single day. And soon you have a wall.”

This is an almost Zen view of building your career and of reaching what few people will ever reach—perfection.

Starting with each brick, Will has built a film empire, raking in the dough and picking the winning horses to involve himself with.

What’s the lesson here?

By setting out to do each small task perfectly,
you will build the company you WANT to build.

If you put the work into each and every client as if they are the entirety of what you are trying to accomplish  – well, that totally changes your perspective.

It allows you to take the time needed to get things done right for each “brick,” instead of focusing all of your efforts on the “wall.”

The wall will come with time. Focus on the bricks and you will have the greatest wall (company) ever created!

Today’s Lesson… A Little Thing Called “FOCUS”

BEFORE you ignore today’s “advice” by thinking it’s cliche B.S. – you NEED to watch this video below. This one word “Focus” changed my life. 

This was the ONLY advice that Billionaire, Mark Cuban gave me years back:

My First 18 Months in Business - I FAILED!! 

I didn’t make even a single penny. I was trying 4, 5, 6 different things. Whatever I could get my hands on. I started asking every person I knew for advice and I kept hearing the same advice back…

“Anik you need to focus.”

I used to HATE hearing that because I thought that was BOGUS advice. I felt that all the top billionaires in the world have so many companies, why not me.

The difference I didn’t realize was that THEY do it – ONE AT A TIME.

The Power of FOCUSSo, I decided to finally put FOCUS into my life…and WA LA – my life changed. WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE and who knows, maybe today is the day YOUR life changes too!
