It's quite highly possible that I have peaked. I mean, I just can't imagine what else I could do beyond this. It's really a bittersweet kind of feeling.
Some suggestions for you :
I've viewed myself as slightly above average in talent. And where I excel is ridiculous, sickening work ethic.
So if you stay ready, you ain't gotta get ready, and that is how I run my life.
I had to focus and create a character in Bagger Vance, not just do my 'Will Smith' thing and get paid.
If you're not willing to work hard, let someone else do it. I'd rather be with someone who does a horrible job, but gives 110% than with someone who does a good job and gives 60%.
My first record came out while I was a senior in high school, which is dangerous.
For me, there is nothing more valuable than how people feel in a movie theater about a movie.
I was raised in a Baptist household, went to a Catholic church, lived in a Jewish neighborhood, and had the biggest crush on the Muslim girls from one neighborhood over.
The things that have been most valuable to me I did not learn in school.
Traditional education is based on facts and figures and passing tests - not on a comprehension of the material and its application to your life.
I'm a student of world religion, so to me, it's hugely important to have knowledge and to understand what people are doing.
I've always considered myself to be just average talent and what I have is a ridiculous insane obsessiveness for practice and preparation.
Don’t ever let somebody tell you…you can’t do something. You got a dream... you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves... they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want something go get it.
