    Will Smith, a role model to look up to 

    “I will NOT be outworked. Period… 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:  Either you’re getting
    off first, or I’m gonna die. It’s really that simple.”

    -Will Smith, on his work ethic
