Mr. Smith, when asked once about the secret to his success, vehemently stated that it had very little to do with talent.
“You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be all of those things you got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: You’re getting off first, or I’m going to die. It’s really that simple, right?” – Will Smith
“The moment you realize that everything in the world around you was built by people who were no smarter than you, you become an element of change yourself…you can change anything” -Steve Jobs
“Some people think that if their opponent plays a beautiful game, it’s OK to lose. I don’t. You have to be merciless.” – Magnus Carlsen
“I start early, and I stay late, day after day, year after year, it took me 17 years and 114 days to become an overnight success.” – Messi
