You’ve Got To Be In It To Win It. And Will Smith Is In It. He’s In The Habit of Believin’ In Magic. And Oh Yes, Magic Works! That’s Accordin’ To Him, His Late Grandmother Gigi And His Hollywood Rainmaker Mentor Quincy Jones. There’s A Special Powerful Trick To Conjurin’ The Magic. It Lives Inside of Each of Us. And The Trick Is To Conjure It Up From Within. It’s Just A Matter of Movin’ The Mental Furntiure Out of The Way. Unblockin’ The Cave. Activatin’ The Alchemy. So Says Will In His New Memoir, The Self Assured And The Self Titled “Will”. It Is Clearly A Book Only Possible After A Powerful And Life Changin’ Arch of Self Development From The Man In Black.

The One Man Show
The Magic Was In Full Motion On The Graham Norton Show (GNS) Friday 26 November 2021 When Lin-Manuel Miranda of Hamilton Fame Agreed To Work With Will On A One Man Show About Him And His Life. Mr Miranda Was Unexpectedly On The Receivin’ End of An Invite From Mr Smith To Get Involved In His Latest Autobiographical Venture. And He Looked Thrilled And Shocked In Equal Measure. Watch This Space! And Before That Watch BBC iplayer To Catch This Very Special Episode of (GNS) The Graham Norton Show.
Will Was Back In London This Time On The GNS Promotin’ His Other Media Triumph “King Richard”. It Is The Story of Serena & Venus Bein’ Coached To Tennis Excellence By Their Father Who Cultivated A Vision of Great Power For Them Before They Were Even Born. King Will Plays King Richard.
Even The Book Cover of Mr Smith’s Modern Day Memoir Is Super Smooth. It Is A Heavyweight, High Grams And High Quality Cover, Embossed With Raised Capital Letters Spellin’ Out The Author’s Name And It Features An Artist’s Impression of His Likeness, Against A Canvas of Vertical Lines In Black, Peach, Yellow And Blue. It Looks Great. It Feels Great. It Feels Special. And It Is Special! Like Its Author It Is World Class!
TheOrator.Press Has Read Hundreds of Celeb’ Literary Offerings. Some Horribly Written. Some Barely Even Written. Some Ghost Written With More Ghostly Goings On Than Halloween. “Will” By Will Smith In Association With Mark Manson Is A Brave Autobiography Written With Cool Middle Age Authority And Worthy of Being An Educational Tool In Secondary Schools And Within The Arena of Global Scholarly Philosophy On Humanity. We Learn Alot. Not Least of All About Hollywood Workings.
Smith Reveals He Has Lived Through Genuine Gut Churnin’ Childhood Fear Which Impacted His Whole Life For A Very Long Time. And Yet He Came From A Good Home. But His Father Was Fearsome. And Sometimes Violent. Judgementally Will Was Later Considered By Some To Have Had Too Good A Life To Even Try Becomin’ A Rapper. Why? Tragically And Tellingly Because He Was Raised By Both A Mother And A Father! And Then Later, After The Success of Provin’ The Doubters Wrong, Came Further Confliction When Seriously Hard Times Endured And He Became Acutely Aware of Certain Sections of The Society Who Were Suffice To Say ‘Purveyors of Adult Pharmaceuticals’.
Followin’ Various Conflictions In His Life And Impacts On His Identity He Has Done The Recovery Work To Counter These Contradictions And Conflictions And Successfully Move Past Them. He Makes Clear It Is Not An Easy Thing To Do. But Ultimately It’s Worth It As It Is Literally Life Changin’ For The Better!
He Shares Examples of Three Very Different Powerful Generational Familial Influencers In His Life. Namely Two Parents, And One Highly Religious Grandparent. Each Within The Context of A Good But Tough African-American Upbringin. He Had His Father’s Tough ‘Wall’ Work Ethic Installed In Him. He Was Inspired By His Mother’s High Intelligence And Love of Books. And He Had His Grandmother Who Guided Against Usin’ Profanity In HIs Music. This Is Something That Powerfully Distinguishes Him From Many Others Within The Genre. Indeed If There Is One Criticism of This Book It Is That He Did Not Transfer This Writin’ Skill To His Autobiography. He Is Far To Smart To Have Succumbed To So Much Unnecessary Profanity. Which Ironically His Rap’ Writin’ Has Proved Time & Time Again Musically.
He Lived In One Household With Three Other Siblings And Yet Each Child Manifested Three Very Different Responses & Approaches To Their Sometimes Tough Familial Reality. At Some Point He Recognised He Needed Help To Deal With The Interpretation of His Experiences. So He Went And Got It. He Processed It. Owned It. And Genuinely Got Better. Lived Different. And Now Talks Different Havin’ Wholly Embraced Self Development. Then And Only Then Did He Decide To Help Others By Sharin His Experiences In This Book. And Also Tellingly – Only After His Father Passed Away – Followin’ Years of Regular Smokin’.
The Magical Power of Self-Improvement
He Still Looks Like, Sounds Like And Acts Like The Same Will Smith We Came To Know & Love. But He’s Not. Now He’s The Real Will Smith. An Even Better Version of The Guy We Met In Bel Air In 1990. That Young, Keen, Green Will Smith Was Wearin’ A Mask & Still Findin’ His Feet. He Was Loveable But Has Since Revealed That Donned A Self-imposed, Invisible, Survival Mask (Long Before Covid Made Masks What They Are Today). Now He’s More Knowing. More In Tune With His True Self. And Paradoxically – Despite Bein’ An Actor’ Less Inclined To Be Someone Else. There Are Laugh Out Loud Moments Along The Way. Pain Too. But Ultimately Empowerment.
And He’s Still Growin’. In The End, He Was With His Father To The End. And The Exploration of The Different Dynamics Between This Father & Son Is One of The Most Interestin’ Ones. He Is Now A Father Himself of Course And That Threw Up Numerous Challenges. As Has His Marriage To Hollywood Actress Jada. But Ultimately He Found Peace, Love And Happiness. With His Father. With His Wife And With His Kids. And Most Importantly ~ With Himself ~ From Which All Else Flows.
The Ultimate Message? We All Have Magic Within Us. The Question Is Do We Have The Courage, Self Love And ‘Willingness’ To Go Find It? The Pursuit of Happiness Remains All Powerful.
