  • Hi, sir. How are you doing?

  • I'm doing all right. How you doing? Have you thought about your success? Mmm... I have not. No?

  • Excuse me, sir?

  • Have you ever thought about your success, and who's helped you become successful?

  • No, not really.

  • Have you ever thought about your success, and who has helped you become successful?

  • Haven't really thought about it.

  • [We don't often think about who helps us achieve success, so we asked people on the street to write a letter to someone supportive in their life.]

  • This is...surprising.

  • All right, you all done?

  • I am.

  • [Then we put them on the spot.]

  • Okay. So, as you can see, we have a telephone booth here, okay?

  • Yeah. What I want you to do is I want you to call Zita, and I want you to read this letter to her out loud.

  • Okay. Here it goes.

  • [Telephone ringing]

  • Hello?

  • Zita, hey, it's me.

  • Hello, Dad?

  • Hey, baby, this is Mom.

  • It's gonna be weird a little bit, but we are shooting a video here.

  • Don't curse, okay?

  • I wrote a little letter because you motivate me daily, and I just wanted to say thank you.

  • There're so much that I could say to you right now.

  • Thank you for being there for me all the time.

  • You always ask how your mother is doing.

  • Just checking in is so helpful.

  • You're a strong woman that raised me to be the man that I am today.

  • You've helped me so much achieve one of the greatest dreams I've had, to own my own place.

  • You've had my back through everything, even when I'm questioning who I am or what I'm doing.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • I'll always remember how proud you were...you were when I graduated high school and then college.

  • I appreciate you for thinking about me before thinking about yourself.

  • This is why you are my friend, brother, business partner for the rest of my life.

  • You always remind me of my greatest self, and showing love and gathering people together.

  • I love you more than you will ever know.

  • Hugs and kisses, Mommy.

  • I love you too, Mom. Aww.

  • I know this is not something that I usually say, but just wanted to call you and tell you that.

  • Thank you, I love you, brother. Okay.

  • All right, bye.

  • Thanks for always being there.

  • Aww, babe.

  • I believe in you wholeheartedly, and I couldn't have done this with anyone else.

  • Thanks, Dad. I really appreciate that.

  • It means a lot.

  • Well, I'll talk to you later.

  • I love you forever.

  • And thank you for being you.

  • I love you too.

  • Bye.

  • Bye.

  • I did it! Come on out!

  • She was shocked.

  • How did that make you feel? Amazing.

  • Thank you for allowing me to have this kind of experience. You're welcome.

  • Give me a hug, babe!

  • [Who has helped you achieve success?]

Hi, sir. How are you doing?
