Interview with Will Smith – Ellen 2008


This is a passionate, fun and inspiring interview with Will Smith on the Ellen show in 2008.

This is Will sharing his thirst for knowledge in everything he does, to be the best he can be in all things he does and the passion and values he lives by.

Making a choice, decide who you’re going to be?

Do you believe that you can be what you choose to be…? not what someone else chooses for you to be..?

Does life feel like that?

This inspiring interview with Will Smith, highlights the choices and the visions we play with and believe in..


The book Will speaks about is ‘The Alchemist’.. Just the title itself implies some sort of magic.. but what if that magic is just the simple magic of choice.. the magic of having an open enough mind to re-examine the possibilities..

This alone could empower you to choose a life and a world for the better.. if not for greatness.

There is a beautiful inspiring phrase that I’ve heard stated in many places:

“What the mind can conceive, you can achieve.”

It’s so powerful to acknowledge that initially it all starts in the mind.. the vision you hold for yourself.. the thoughts you hold about yourself.. the future you hold for yourself..

Here’s another video that looks at this a bit deeper.. the sound quality is not so brilliant, but the content and passion is awesome..


I’ve been dumb founded, and continue to be dumb founded finding that I’m choosing to attract into my life what I have now, and I choose what I attract in the future.

But most of all.. just like you I still have a choice and the beauty of all choices are that you can only choose now.

“The past does not have to dictate your future.”

So if your lot now is not all it’s cracked up to be.. there is a way to change it for the better..

Whether it’s changes in:

  • your relationships
  • your finances
  • your personal development
  • your family life
  • your social life
  • your health
  • your spiritual well being
  • your emotional well being
  • your vocation.. or career..

Or perhaps simply having more balance and fulfillment in your life.

There is an answer.. there is a system.. a process.. where you are challenged to be greater than you are now..

One on one.. in person or on the phone.. If you want to know more send an email.

The only thing you have to fear, is fear itself?

Have you been paralysed by excuses in the past? I know I have. I’ve been paralysed by excuses, one thing after another. And it’s even stopped me from doing things that I desperately want to do.

I’ve had plans to change my business and move on, but I’ve kept dropping back on one excuse or another. I set myself a goal to close one of my businesses by December 2009, so that I can move my life towards the picture I have for it… but I wish I had seen this video below first…

Because I still kept putting it things off, until eventually I realised that fear had taken a hold. I had set myself goal, not just any goal… a goal with a deadline and a specific outcome aimed for (time specific, action specific, outcome specific). It was only because I’d given my self a deadline with a specific outcome in mind that I actually followed through.

I’ve done it now, but I can see I’m still holding on in one shape or another. Why do we make things so complicated?

It feels so difficult to let go fully, especially letting go of something I’ve been holding on to for so long. My mind knows it’s time to let go, but there’s still that fear of the unknown.

Then I stumbled across this Will Smith interview medley, full of inspiring insights. Yes it’s 9 minutes long.. but it’s well worth watching from start to finish…(see above)
