When he was 21, Will Smith was going to move to Los Angeles. He was from West Philadelphia born and raised, on the playground was where he spent most of his days. (I just made you sing.) His manager, James Lassiter, told him, “Listen, if we’re going out to L.A., we probably should have a goal.” The transition from rapper to actor would not happen by accident and Lassiter knew if they went to LA without a goal that city would eat Will Smith alive. “I want to be the biggest movie star in the world,” Smith replied. That sentence in and of itself isn’t that unique. A thousand people riding buses from the Midwest out to Hollywood say that same thing every week.
But what he did next radically changed his life and it’s a simple principle you can use to change your life, too. I call it, “Borrowing someone else’s diploma” and I’ll explain how to do it in this episode.
