SELF DISCIPLINE – Best Motivational Speech Video (Featuring Will Smith)

SELF DISCIPLINE – Best Motivational Speech Video (Featuring Will Smith)


99% of people are not willing to do, what it takes make their dreams come true. The Marines have a saying: “Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die” The center of bringing any dream into fruition is self discipline You know, something as simple as food and eating… it’s not about your body as much as it is about your mind. It’s getting command of your mind to be able to choose actions that are in your own best interest. Every day we are choosing shit that’s not in our own best interest. So if the world is attacking you and the world wants to fight you and the world’s trying to hold you down. So you’re gonna kick yourself in the balls. So you will stop yourself from getting what you dream. And I think the word “discipline” has kind of gotten a bad name. We think about it in terms of punishment. I’m not talking about discipline in that way. I’m talking about discipline in the sense that you you forego immediate pleasure for the exchange of long-term self-respect. I believe that self-discipline is the definition of self-love that when you say that you love yourself that means that you have behavior towards yourself. That is loving Self-discipline is the center of all material success. You cannot win the war against the world if you can’t win the war against your own mind. Self-love is when you say to yourself Man, look I know you and that girl got a real connection I know y’all vibe, but Yes, your girl’s cousin. So I love you too much to let you do that It’s like you say to yourself a man look I know you want to eat that pizza and it’ll be really good, you know, but I can’t let you eat that man cuz if you eat that pizza, you’re gonna feel like You know, and I I just I love you too much to let you eat that Self-love is a look. I know you got a a test on Monday, you know and I know you really want to go out with your friends and Saturday night you want to go out but If you fail that test, you’re not gonna feel good about yourself You know, I just I love you too much to let you go out tonight Self-discipline is Self-love if you wanna be happy you have to love yourself Which means you have to discipline your behavior the road Sustained happiness is through Disciplining your behavior. We tend to base our self-esteem on what other people think and That’s not really Self-esteem self-esteem asposed to be how we feel about ourselves and I was just saying how dangerous it is to allow other people to determine how you’re going to feel about you and it’s kind of like looking into a broken mirror. You’re gonna look in a broken mirror and then change your face to try to look good in this defiled busted broken mirror and it just other people’s opinions. There’s a really shit way to determine how we feel about ourselves. It don’t matter whose fault it is that something is broken if it’s your responsibility to fix it For example, it’s not somebody’s fault if their father was an abusive alcoholic. But it’s for damn sure their responsibility to figure out how they’re gonna do with those traumas and try to make a life out of it It’s not your fault if your partner cheated and ruined your marriage But it is for damn sure your responsibility to figure out how to take that pain and how to overcome that and build a happy life for yourself. Fault and responsibility do not go together. It sucks, but they don’t. When something is somebody’s fault we want them to suffer. We want them punished. We want them to pay. We want it to be their responsibility to fix it but that’s not how it works, especially when it’s your heart. Your heart, your life, your happiness is your responsibility and your responsibility alone As long as we’re pointing the finger and stuck in whose fault Something is we’re jammed and trapped into victim mode when you’re in victim mode You’re stuck in suffering the road to power is in taking responsibility Your heart your life your happiness is your responsibility and your responsibility alone Do you make a person smile you can make a person feel good you can make a person laugh but whether or not a person is happy is Deeply and totally and utterly out of your control The prerequisite for spending time with any person is that they nourish and inspire you They feed your flame. Look at your last five text messages. Are those people feeding your flames or dousing your fire? Put your phone down for just a second and look around Look to the people around you Are those people throwing logs on your fire or they pissing on it? I want my life, I want my work, my family. I wanted to mean something and it’s like it has if you are not making someone else’s life better than you’re wasting your time. The separation of talent and skill is one of the the the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are trying to excel who have dreams that want to do things. Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft. You don’t try to build a wall You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say I’m the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built. You don’t start there. You say I’m gonna lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid. There will not be one brick on the face of the earth that’s gonna be lay better than this brick; that I’m gonna lay in this next 10 minutes. And you do that every single day. And soon you have a wall and I think psychologically the advantage that that gives me over over a lot of people that I have been in competition with in different situations is it’s difficult to take the first step when you look how big the task The definition of Who I am is very clear to me and it also redefines who I want to be in that I know for a fact that I’m stronger than I thought I was you know, you can’t help but ask yourself the question. What would I do if I was in? Mohammed Eileen shoes I’m motivated by fear. I hate Scared abuse on And I think what developed Was the the attitude that I started attacking things I was scared Why were you scared in your bed the night before? Why did you what do you need that fear for just don’t go? Why are you scared in your bed 16 hours before you jump? Why are you scared in the car? Why could you not enjoy breakfast? fear is Fear of what you’re nowhere near the airplane if we think up to the stepping out There’s actually no reason to be scared. It only just ruins your day You’re you don’t have to jump and then in that moment all of a sudden where you should be terrified is the most blissful Experience of your life and God place the best things in life on the other side of terror

  1. Everything in this life ends…. so I'm gonna end this lifestyle and start another one, I am going to born, Cause I cannot win the war against the world if I cant win the war against my own mind, against MYSELF.

    THANKS FOR THIS VIDEOO LOVEITTT SOOOO MUCH❤ YOU'RE GREATT.

    Hello from Spain

  2. When i wae 17 i had 6 highschool credits. i messed up for 3 years in high school.. Id rather work and make 80-120$ a day then smoke weed n party eat nice but i was 3 years behind in high school and i had a year . i moved 6 hours away due to family matter. As soon as i moved i told my self ur gona test as much as you can and i dif every day went to sleep thinking "i hope i dont mess up in school or family tommow". Id wake up do great in school and felt good at the end of the day. I turned 19 this june 22 . i graduated and the school gave me a scolarship . i never thought i the screw up would graduate with a scolarship. Its all ur mine set. Ser ur goals and do it

  3. I have relentlessly focused on self-discipline and have discovered how I can use it as a powerful tool. I’ve put a stop to the things I shouldn’t be doing and have taken up those that will make me healthier, happier and able to contribute positively to people’s lives and my own.

  4. I think Will feels better about this video compilation than some of his movies and songs. You know how I know that? Because he finds his greatest sense of purpose and fulfillment by having a positive impact on others and making others' lives better. Respect.

  5. Yo I started to tear because I know I’m becoming a better person, I have an iPhone can anyone tell me how I can download this for access when I need it the most ?

  6. It's not what you look at that matters, its what you see.

    See beyond the temptations and become the person you deserve to be.

  7. Self discipline is taking charge of ur mind and not letting your negative subconscious take over…..do every thing in your best interest and you will get nothing but positive results….

  8. I listened to this video for months and this might be my 40th time listening and it really helped me encourage myself out of my depression. I listen to a lot of motivational speeches but this one I never get tired of. Because depression made me very undisciplined and I lost myself in the sadness and my goals and dreams started to die. Now I wake up with a new perspective. And I put it to practice.

  9. In tears!!! Really needed to hear this!!!! I love myself so much that I am willing to set goals and push myself because it's in my best interest to make myself better!! Thank you for helping me change my mindset about who I am!!!

  10. Hey Motiversity,

    Can I make a request or suggestion for future videos?

    You use automated captions. I'm partially deaf and need them to understand what's going on. I know it doesn't have the same impact as being able to hear the speakers, but can I please suggest you caption it yourself (like this one called Muhammad Ali "Muhammad Eileen" lol) so that the hearing impaired can still receive the great information you have provided?

    I do understand this takes a great deal of extra time. I was just hoping you'd think about it 🙂

  11. There is a reason I love Will Smith. He is not particularly good looking, and he does not seem to be very politically correct. But Ill bet he went through hell to get where he is today.

  12. I died when i heard my self voice, and i put myself back together after i took myself apart. I found my heart when , my heart skipped a beat.. i died when i found myself & i was reborn the person i was meant to be -…. God bless my brother Anthony Hendrix who died and wrote that a few days before he died saving three kids in the battle in Iraq… He was found with his journal.. After saving 6 of his brothers

  13. For the 1% of people reading this, I hope you become successful in your life! This content is just the motivation I need! Big Dreams!

    Small Youtuber here!

  14. Will Smith for sure must of went through that situation where he says "that's your girls cousin , I can't let you do that"

  15. This is the truth!
    I believe we all have dreams and desire and it take discipline and determination to push through, How bad do you want it?

  16. *Wisdom of Solomon 1:5-6
    [5]For the holy spirit of discipline will flee deceit, and remove from thoughts that are without understanding, and will not abide when unrighteousness cometh in.
    [6]For wisdom is a loving spirit; and will not acquit a blasphemer of his words: for God is witness of his reins, and a true beholder of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue.

  17. The add at the end of this video is concerningly intimidating. I know most of you cant see it, but if you see a hippie dude with emo hair who sounds like Jack black, then you see it too…

  18. I've watched this video over and over. Thank you Will. You speak the absolute truth. I shared this with someone I care about. I hope it helps them as much as it has me. Life is too short for anything but being happy one day at a time.

  19. Beautiful video, I love it.

    Sometimes I get discouraged when I make my videos for YouTube, since there are people who only criticize me. That affects me a lot.

    My videos may not be the best, but I really want to do it. But this is life. You have to keep going and always be positive.

    Have a beautiful morning when you took the trouble to read me, I appreciate it <3 <3

  20. If I could give this more than 1 "thumbs up", I would. Brilliant and actionable insights from the Fresh Prince!! (sorry, Will, I'm a child of the 80's, you'll always be the Fresh Prince to me, not that it's a bad thing). Self Discipline = Self Love….stop looking into a broken mirror (i.e. other people's "reflection" of you) and then thinking you need to change your face…the difference between "fault" and (personal) "responsibility"…and more….some excellent wisdom here! Highly recommend this vid for anyone struggling with self love issues, trying to power through a crisis or transformation…or just in general, for people to achieve a more "sustainable", long-term happiness in their lives. This type of success doesn't come without hard work, daily focus, and yes, self-discipline.

  21. Self discipline is self love. That hits me hard. I’ve never really loved myself but maybe that’s because I’ve never been disciplined. Well F that I’m starting today.

  22. if u wanna love urself, u have to understand, y it makes u feel like shit, when u eat it, and then finally, u'll learn then u have to learn, that its ok to eat that pizza, cuz u still can be lucky in life, without lookin like the rock.

  23. This is nonsense being spouted out of the mouth of a rich actor who has never truly struggled….It's reprehensible..

  24. #inouroriginaltimeline In our original timeline, Will Smith did play Neo in the Matrix. Consequences were so powerful that the ????? changed this reality to erase it. #MandelaEffect

  25. I highly believe disciplined is the main ingredients to success i mean look at Manny Pacquiao this guy just pure hardwork no bullshit throwing party just pushing himself to the absolute limit
