Key elements to life


Please watch this video before you read my post: Will Smith's 2 Key elements to life

Running and Reading

Wow. What a great body- I mean concept. There is always that little voice in the back of your head saying "Nope, not worth it.""Naw, that's too hard", "What are you thinking? Don't bother" Great people have ignored this voice and this is why they could make it so far in life. Pushing through the hard things in life is what will get you the opportunities to do that great things in life.

Reading other than its obvious benefits such as: expanding your vocabulary, learning from others, and stimulating your mind, etc. I have heard many employers say "One of my interview questions is 'What book are you reading right now?'." Employers want to know that you are continuing to educate yourself.

You want to be able to be a leader in any aspect of life not just business. So here are a few must-reads:

1. How to win friends and influence people, by Dale Carnegie.

2. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen R. Covey, Simon and Schuster, 1989.

  3. What a nice clip. I like Will Smith, he is a great actor and very funny. After watching his clip, I like him even more now. Yes, my friend, Ms. Smith...go for a long run before that public speech that you do not enjoy that much. I have seen you doing it well, so you can do it! Think of Will Smith and his inspiring words when you are up there talking to Mrs. Geddie. Think of how great a person you are...smart, beautiful, sweet, and on the top of everything you have a great smile! Keep smilling!
