Food-4-Thought with Will Smith

‘’Don’t ever let somebody tell you can’t do something, not even me. Alright? You dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period.” – Chris Gardner

This is probably one of the best quotes by Will Smith on a movie set which resonates with many of his audience. In the incredible movie ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’ in which he played the role of Chris Garner, Will shared this powerful quote with his young son during one of their father-son moments.

In one of his articles on Money Inc, Nat Berman chronicled how Will turned down an opportunity to study at the prestigious MIT and choose to pursue a career in the entertainment industry instead, where he successfully grew his net worth to over $250 million USD.

Will Smith is one the few celebrities who is passionate about helping others in society. As he once said in an interview, "I want to do good. I want the world to be better because I was here. I want my life, my work, my family to mean something. It's like if you are not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other lives better."

With his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, he founded the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation to benefit inner-city community development, youth educational projects and under-privileged children and their families. He dedicated time and money to helping suffering families and children in South Africa. In 2010, the couple gave up their birthdays for Charity Water project and raised more than $109,000.

As you enjoy your weekend, remember to keep your dream alive and help others achieve their dreams too. Together, we can make the world a better place.
