I love Gary Vaynerchuk and his advice. He has no cut cards at all, and his videos have helped push me to be even more honest with myself and do more to reach my goals. So I had to share these Words of Wisdom from him today!
So many of us want instant gratification simply because we’re good at what we do, and we feel we’ve put in some work. A few months or a few years of hustle, we should be exactly where we want to be right? Tuh. I know for myself that that’s a lie. Sure, you may become viral for a minute off of a quick video or blog post. You may put out some hits that people flock to for a while. But long-term success doesn’t happen overnight. It requires work. A lot of it.
Gary himself wasn’t an overnight success when it came to his videos, podcast, books, and businesses. This man was making moves behind the scenes and recording videos for TWELVE YEARS. And a lot of us are just now starting to get into his videos and work. Twelve years, he’s been grinding it out, and now he’s catapulted to this major star because of his wise, no-holds-barred advice to people trying to make it. He’s a prime example of what it really takes to get to where you want to be!
Watch Gary’s words below!
So if it took him a good twelve years, and it’s taken other people years and years to get where they are, why do you assume you can cut corners? I think these social media posts have some people’s minds all messed up. We need honesty like this as a reminder that nothing worth having comes easy or fast. You have to bust your butt to get where you want to be, and it takes time! So don’t get discouraged that you don’t have everything all together like you want yet. As long as there’s still breath in your body, there’s still time.
