Awesome Tip: The Straightest Road to Success – Gary Vaynerchuk



FOR ALL YOU ENTREPRENEURS SEEKING TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS, YOU MUST REALIZE THAT, HARD WORK BEATS TALENT WHEN TALENT REFUSES TO WORK HARD.

watch all of my short motivational films HERE:


What would you say is the the biggest obstacle to your success right now? A lack of time? Maybe a lack of capital? Or maybe a lack of good employees?

Nope. All wrong.

The biggest obstacle to success is a lack of optimism.

I’ll back up.

The fact that people go straight to any other answer is the problem in itself. Money and time are, of course, difficulties. When I started WineLibrary, I had time but we didn’t necessarily have the money. So it took more time. Today, I have the money, but boy do I not have the time. Fact is, though, that neither should ever be an excuse. They weren’t for me, and they shouldn’t be for you.

This is something I really need everyone to understand. No one should ever point to time or money as an obstacle. They are firmly in the excuses column, and I have no patience for that. I will never make an excuse. Everything that is a problem with me, everything I don’t achieve and everything wrong with VaynerMedia is my fault. I succumb to that, I respect that, and that’s how I think it should be. No excuses. Even more so, you shouldn’t let yourself have patience for excuses either. Train yourself to believe this, and you will see amazing results. No joke. There will always be problems, and you need to get out of the mindset that they are obstacles because you should already assume they will be there. They’re just part of the path, my friend.

Because guess what? There are about a million other things that could stop success in it’s tracks. The health and well being of your family. The world is changing. The media, bad coverage of you. I’m a human being, and I always wonder what would happen if I say the wrong thing. Any of these things could happen, but they are the same thing: excuses.

There are a million reasons why not, but there is one good reason why, which is this: you just have to persevere.
No matter what happens, it’s the way it is, and you have to keep going. And that is where the optimism lives. If you truly believe that you can do it no matter what, you’ve got this. The only reason you might bring up any of the previous excuses we talked about is because you DON’T believe, right? Do not let that kind of thinking ever get in the way.

So. You can pick time. You can pick money. Pick any one or two things that you think stop you from winning your game. But the truth is there are a million reasons. Get thicker skin. Build up your self esteem. To be able to get through, you need to have optimism. Every day is hard, and all you have to fight it in the end is yourself.

The music for this video is a song from the motion picture “Inception” titled “Time” ALL Music rights belong to Hans Zimmer and the studio behind the creation of this song.

Woz zzz says:

He is awesome.He is talking so true.ı love you Gary.

(I am learning english,and your video is helping me a lot)
1 – You know, to be great, I think you have to fight. And I very much think that my success is a product of some level of skill. But I do think I win because I outwork people.
0:000:12

2 – I really do believe that. I do believe that 100%. And I’m not sure that if my dad didn’t set that example, that I’d even have the ability to think one could work that hard.
0:12

3 – The fact that I’ve been working 19 hours a day every day for the last 20 years is easy for me. It’s the only gear I knew, right? I was poor, I sucked shit at school, it was the only gear I had.
0:26

4 – You know I think we need to recognize that your biggest advantage is that you’re hungrier than your competitor and that if you’re not applying your one advantage which is your work ethic and the hours that you have to put into your business, well then you’re going to come up short.
0:39

5 – I sit here with enormous assumptions around all of you that you’re just too soft to beat me, right, that I think you’ve had it better and that that alone doesn’t allow you to beat me. Somebody will come with the counter cultural point of view, and they’re like, “Gary, that’s cool.
0:57

6 – But I don’t have to work that hard because I’m working smarter.” “Yeah, me too, asshole, I work hard and smart, now what?” Look there’s a 12-hour, 10-hour, 8-hour, 15-hour workday.
1:14

7 – You can finish a lot of things in those 18, 12, 9 hours or you can finish medium amounts of things or lightweight things. People focus on too many small details.
1:26

8 – Way too many in this room are going to spend the next 30, 40 years of their lives trying to check the boxes of the things that they’re not as good at, and that you’re going to waste a fuck load of time and lose.
1:37

9 – I highly recommend for all you hustlers, because there’s a lot of you, there’s a lot of you that are always talking about, “Gary, I do work hard.” And you do.
1:46

10 – You work for 16 hours. Some people just don’t have the attention span or the capacity to remember. They’re like “There’s a lot of things I can’t learn.”
1:53

11 – I was a very poor student because the subject matter bored me. And if I was forced to become great on understanding the great artists of the 20th century, I’m in big trouble. And so I would tell people to bet on their strengths.
2:03

12 – You need to bet on your strengths and don’t give a fuck about what you suck at, and to put themselves in a position to win with their strengths because that is absolutely the straightest line to success.
2:18

13 – Greatness comes from adversity and looking the challenge in the eye, and having the intestinal fortitude to kind of to step up and go after it. 2:32

You are wonderful man !

Gary, can you please make a shirt “stop watching fucking Lost”

Might be the greatest quote of all time.

Ana Barrera says:

Can you interview Patrick Bet David if you haven’t yet or grand cardone

He may have sucked in school, but he is very articulate.

Always something to reference back to. When I'm doing my YouTube channel this always gets me back on track going I would say to all of you anytime you feeling not too good on some days make a playlist on YouTube and put this video in there.

Camden says:

That scene when he is sitting behind the guy looking at the PC screen is just powerful. you can see the greatness in his eyes. The man loves what he does.

Franz Haas says:

I DO AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE. THAT'S MY DREAM . I SLEEP 9 TO 10 HOURS A DAY. I GO TO WORK AND SIT IN A ROOM AND STARE AT YOUTUBE FOR EIGHT HOURS. IM LIVING MY DREAM. I SAY WHY DO ANYTHING YOUR JUST GOING TO DIE AND EVERYTHING YOU DONE YOU WONT HAVE A BRAIN TO REMEMBER. IT WILL BE AS IF NOTHING EVER HAPPENED.

hishdp 1 says:

19 hours a day?…. ok

Loved this one. Work ethic. Go hard or go home. Thanks for all the motivation

yaaas! do more! work harder! enjoy life!

Nacho TV says:

wish I heard your words 10years ago..but ill still go after it now.

Ryan Davies says:

Love this video, it shines the light on the things we don't see.

"Go after it".
Perfect. Just one question..with all the young generation competing..is any age able to start over and reach a goal? Retirement is not a fun word. Is there a" too late" to start over?

Man one day I got to meet you and have a conversation with you! You are one hell of an business man and motivator.

Tom Durn says:

This video changed my life.

Adel says:

So you work harder than the Nepalese immigrant working 12 hours a day in 50 Celsius weather?

hbbstn says:

Seriously?! Do people buy this? This is a piece of marketing. The guy is likely making money out of this. I hate when the so called gurus say clichés like work harder than your competitors or work on your strengths. It doesn't necessarily apply to all. And how about working 18 hours a day for 30 years? This is not life. How can people watch a 2 min video and say it has changed their life? I'm disappointed this is not getting a lot of scrutiny. I read once that wealthy people like to brag about working long hours. That includes giving lectures, talking to your team, traveling across the country by airplane. Of course they get help from their team. Now try working long hours in front of a computer with no assistant support in a cubicle every day of your life. That puts a different spin to his advice. This is not inspiring at all.

hey gary your video was so inspirational but what you wrote about excuses , optimism and perseverence in description is so true . I am a student in india right now which i hate but i want to be an entrepreneur and you will see me at the top , without a doubt .

prodxoasis says:

Your videos give me hope my man, thank you once again for all you do for the community. Love from Athens Ohio!!!!

Has everyone read the description for this video? He goes into more detail there. Here was the gist of it: There are no excuses. Time and Money are included in that. If you don't have the money, put in the time and work and then deploy patience. If you have the money chances are you don't have the time. Hire people to do things for you and work them up to a solid 7 or 8. if they have no interest in moving up, either you're not giving them the proper incentive or you are unable to, and you need to hire someone else.

No excuses.

…nice, ''that your biggest advantage is your hungrier than your competitor…"
