When the weather warms up it is so easy to get distracted. Even without the lure of the warm sun and fun outdoor activities, very often life gets in the way of staying focused. One person who is extremely focused, and has a phenomenal personal brand is Will Smith. I love Will Smith. This blog is a super friend of Will Smith and his entire family. If you don’t like Will Smith and his super fabulous wife Jada Pinket Smith, this is not the blog for you. In June, BrandMaker News posted an article detailing five things that Will Smith has said allowed him to accomplish his goals. For the full article, go here. The shortened version of the list is:
- Decide who you’re gonna to be.
- Create your own possibilities.
- Make lemonade out of life’s lemons.

- Stay ready.
Last year, Will Smith had an interview with Tavis Smiley. He not only elaborates on the five tips above, but he talks about how his success was built.
