A while ago I saw a documentary on Will.I.Am's life on E! It was honestly one the most inspirational things I have EVER watched. Will grew up in East Los Angeles. His mother encouraged him not to join activities that were occurring in the neighborhood, but to instead be unique and to focus on his music career. She sent him to school in West Los Angeles to help decrease the influence of others. One of Will's friends, LMFAO, recalls how he one time saw Will wearing a tie as a belt and commented on how awesome is was. Will told him that he was wearing the tie as a belt because he was unable to afford a belt. Over the course of the year people around his school started wearing ties around their waist as a trend that the innovative Will.I.Am created. While in high school Will and Apl.De.Ap went around in East L.A clubs preforming songs and were soon joined by a few other entertainers and were signed by Ruthless Records. From the on out they started creating songs and in 1997, the Black Eyed Peas were formed. One quote that Will said that really stuck out to me was: "When people tell you no, you should, know your boundaries, know how far you can push it, and know you can do it." Another thing he said was: "I want to leave a legacy. But in order leave a legacy, you must be legendary, and in order to be legendary, you must be a ledged. Do great things with yourself."All the words uttered by Will in the documentary felt like they were all words of wisdom and it makes me want to do great things in my life. If you have not seen this documentary, I 100% suggest you go watch it. Here is the link:

Do something great!
