In the video that made him viral, the young Jamaican Trainer delivers a powerful motivational speech, reminding viewers of the value of hard work:
He says: “Either you work hard for it, or you don’t work hard for it.”
“Me and my brother work hard for our stuff. It don’t come easy, in life you have to work. You have to be the shark of the ocean, or the fish of the ocean.”
Demarjay’s energy seeps through the camera and his powerful messages prove that he is ahead of his years.
“All right, now we have to be the shark – take over everything, strength, no weakness, power, muscle,” he continues.
“You have to have that mindset so you got to come in here and dominate. When you say, ‘oh, there’s something wrong’, no, no, no! Don’t put yourself down, motivate yourself, keep yourself up, pumped and ready for any challenge.”
After witnessing his cousin being bullied, Smith became motivated to conquer his own fear of being bullied, and turned to exercise to build physical strength.
