Will Smith is definitely one of my favorite actors, and definitely one of the best actors in the game. He’s very talented, successful, and a great person at heart. What a great way to start the week off by watching and hearing some motivation from Will Smith for Motivational Mondays. I know it’s pretty lengthy, but it’s worth all 9 minutes of your time. Below are a few of his quotes I thought really stood out:

“You don’t set out to build a wall, you say I’ma lay this brick as perfectly as it can be laid. And you do this every day, and soon you have a wall.”

“I never viewed myself as talented, where I excel is RIDICULOUS…SICKENING work ethic.”

“I want the world to be better, because I was here.”

“You really can make what you want.”

“You have to believe that something different can happen.”

“Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity.”

“I’m motivated by fear… fear of fear…I hate being scared to do something.”

“Don’t ever let somebody tell you, you can’t do something… not even me.”

I’m a 22 year-old graphic designer, artist, and now blogger currently living in Virginia Beach. I’ve been doing graphic design since middle school, when Xanga and MySpace were popular social networks (I was known as “the girl with the sweet MySpace”), and designing professionally for 4-5 years. I love art, music, design, food, colors, urban culture, and random things that are aesthetically pleasing to me. Strive&Grind is my way of giving back to the world. I believe everyone deserves to live a happy successful life. Enjoy what you do for a living! Dreams can come true!
