Money and success don’t change people; they merely amplify what is already there.” Will Smith

Will Smith full TRANSCRIPT:

“How much is fear play into preventing us from grasping perspective, though?
Oh no! Fear is everything. Yeah, like if there is if there was one concept that I would suggest to people to take a daily confrontation with, it’s fear. The problem with fear is that it lies, right.
So, fear tells you, “Hey, you know, if you say that to that girl she’s going to know she has you, you know, and she’ll never really be attracted to you if she knows how much you attracted to her. Don’t say that, no! How we get her is when she walks by, ignore her.” You know, fear tells you dumb shit like that. Okay, you know.
So, for me, the daily confrontation with fear has become a real practice for me since about three years ago. I went skydiving in Dubai, right! As skydiving, skydiving is a really interesting confront with fear, right.
So, I got to stand up. So, all your friends… What happens you go out, how you… Oh sorry, drop my thing… So, what happens is you go out the night before and you-you know. You take a drink with your friends and somebody says, “Yeah! We should go skydiving tomorrow.” And you go, “Yeah, we’ll go skydiving tomorrow.” Yeah, yeah! Yeah, right? And you go home by yourself, you like, “hmm…” You like, “Well, yeah.” I mean, they were drunk too, right? So, maybe they not, maybe-maybe, I mean. We don’t have to go. We don’t have to do it.
So then, that night you’re laying in your bed and you just keep “hmm” and you’re terrified. You keep imagining over and over again jumping out of an airplane, and you can’t figure out why you would do that, right! And you’re laying there you have the worst night’s sleep of your life but you still have the hope that your friends were drunk, right. So, you wake up the next day. You go, you know, down. You say where you were going to meet and everybody’s there. You’re like, “Oh shit!” Alright, alright. Cool, cool, cool, cool, right!
So, you get in the van and you don’t know that your friends have the same night that you had cuz they’re pretended like they didn’t it. Like, “Yeah, man! My uncle’s a Navy SEAL and, you know, this is going to be great. I’ve been looking forward to this.” You like, “Oh my god! Oh my god!” And your stomach is terrible. You can’t eat and everything but you don’t want to be the only funk who doesn’t jump out of this airplane. So, you get there and then you have the safety brief. And you’re standing there and the guys will tell you what the chute doesn’t open what’s going to happen is, you’re doing… What…Would…What could happen?
The chute, the chute would open, right? So, you do a thing and what you do is your first jump you’re attached to a guy who is going, you know, he’s going to walk you out. So, you go and you get there, and there’s an airplane and nobody’s stopping. Everybody’s still going. So, you get onto the airplane and you’re sitting there, and, you know, it’s extra because you’re sitting on some dude’s lap, some stranger you sit on his lap. And it’s all you know. You got trying to make small talk, “Yeah man!” So, you-you’ve been jumping with people all the time. Right. You know.
