14 Life Changing Lessons in 9 Minutes 57 Seconds

Have you ever come across something (a video, a letter, or a message) and it almost seemed like an accident, but it was exactly what you needed in that moment? I’ve been researching synchronicities and vibrational escrow for an upcoming workbook, and I want to share with you a little story.

The year 2008 was one of the worst years of my life. After experiencing a surge in success at my thriving company and purchasing my dream home, I was derailed by a surprise divorce and my oldest son receiving a devastating diagnosis. I had no way of understanding either of these events. Daily life was shattered like glass, and I felt hopeless. My vision for the future turned dark and disturbing.

I was completely lost and adrift with no direction, but I slowly started to put my life back together. One of the turning points was a Will Smith video I stumbled upon during a YouTube binge. My life began to pivot in 9 minutes 57 seconds as I watched this video again and again, sometimes 10 times a day. I watched it over and over until I could recite it word for word and now I live it… I made a comeback.

Here are the 14 Life Changing Lessons I learned in 9 minutes and 57 seconds:

  • I have a great time with my life and I want to share it
  • Greatness exists in all of us
  • It doesn’t matter where you are now
  • The separation of Skill vs. Talent
  • Ridiculous work ethic
  • Lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid
  • Do something to make the world a better place
  • Represent an idea
  • You must believe
  • Thoughts are real
  • Choices make you powerful
  • It takes obsessive focus
  • Overcome your fears
  • Don’t you ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something

It’s so true…

Over the last 8 years, Will’s secrets to success became my secrets to success. I highly recommend you watch the video and see what gems you find.
