Gary is a good actor too . Reply JJ Honey says: July 6, 2018 at 6:57 pm I love how you always say "how are you" and mean it. A lot of people I've noticed don't answer you, and you'll ask again looking for a response. So many people these days say "how are you" like it's just a simple "hello". I can never ask "how are you" and not get an actual answer to that question. Give a shit.

Reply Fotografic says: July 6, 2018 at 7:17 pm Re-saying things over and over. That doesnt help any graduate. Give advice to a graduate on how to convince someone to hire them even tho they dont have experience. (And dont tell me the "go work for free" because thats not a option for the majority.

I mean it's got a lot of firepower. If you can figure out a way to wrestle that fear to push you from behind rather than to stand in front of you, that's very powerful." / Jimmy Iovine Reply John Rosenblatt says: July 6, 2018 at 8:08 pm The CC really helps.

I've only just finished first year but I'm not too sure how I would go from here. Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems creating something business related in the scientific world will a bit harder. How would I start? Reply Miroslav Kosanović says: July 6, 2018 at 9:57 pm I like the cuts where the audio jumps forward a second before the video.

Right on. Not everyone needs to be running a business. I think it’s okay to go years just trying stuff out after college. Gain lots of experiences. I’m 33 and am just now feeling like I’m on my path. I have just merged in my lane and am stepping on the gas! Love you Gary 👊🏻❤️🇺🇸 Reply PawnSmartUSA says: July 6, 2018 at 11:42 pm 60 second club! Reply Theyungcity23 says: July 7, 2018 at 12:54 am You can plan or you can do – Tommy Wiseau I agree with Gary but in some fields you have to train. If you want to be an animator you can't just jump out and do it. You have to learn your craft first and that's all about planning, looking ahead, looking within.

I love ur realness on u have no idea what is going to happen! Optimism is key💙 Reply ライトJapanese Library says: July 7, 2018 at 2:46 am Hi Gary. I’m a white South Africa living in Japan. Even though white South Africans don’t look African we’re proud of our country and history. Although things changed and now I’m in Japan, married and happy as a family. I’m happy and I make YouTube content, do you think the reason I have a hallow (emptiness hole) in my heart is because I fail at YouTube, at speaking fluent Japanese, teach English but it’s my second language, the list goes on… I fail at most things in life and keeping fit helps me. Basically, I think as humans we always want more. Do you agree? Reply Tananang Kohkiattrakul says: July 7, 2018 at 2:51 am I want more kind of video like this. I know this might be the simple thing or enough to hear but idk it keeps me being optimistic. Reply Middleman Academy says: July 7, 2018 at 3:04 am We need more people like Gary Vee Reply Doha Hesham says: July 7, 2018 at 3:10 am Peace, mercy and blessings of God for every one 😊 thanks a lot ,sir for your advice Reply Jack Brennan says: July 7, 2018 at 3:23 am Nahhhhhh she doesn't get it. no way Reply Aleigha Nicole says: July 7, 2018 at 3:37 am 23. A year and a half out of college. Working toward having social media as a main source of income and provide leverage to what I really wanna do. No salary job at the moment and ok okay with that but somehow makes others around me uncomfortable. Annnd I still act like I dont know who Sallie Mae is. I'd love to talk to Gary about post-grad. Reply Chaitanya Singh says: July 7, 2018 at 3:45 am I remembered something, y'all who follow Gary knows that how much he talks about the 400 trillion to 1 and how high you should have your clouds thing and many people get that but really struggle to put it in perspective, one way I've observed that helps in putting that in perspective is when you have that right conversation in the night with the right person or when you're staring at the stars or when you think really hard about your existence and stuff, at some point while contemplating the vastness of the universe, eternity of time or the tininess of an atom you have that woah moment for a split second in which the fog is clear, you realise how nothing you are in the universe (Google optimistic nihilism for more context) and realise how rare it is to be a human (this special arrangements of atom, a decreased state of entropy in a universe with increasing entropy and all those philosophical insights) and you're left with just immense humility and gratitude (from my experience) and even after the moment is gone the aftermath remains for a few time and you actually get the perspective of 400 trillion to 1. Now obviously these moments are rare and you now have the perspective but how do you keep it all the time, it's simple – just remember the context. Be aware of your mind whenever it is covered in the fog and think around and beyond everything you come upon (have a bigger perspective). Just remember to see the full context. (for more context read Tim's post on waitbutwhy titled religion for the non religious, he goes more deep) Hope this brings value to someone, also don't forget this is only half of the equation, dirt is the other half. Alright my break's over, have a nice day.

Reply Majoe_47 _47 says: July 7, 2018 at 4:00 pm Find what makes you happy and what you would like to do the most. If you found it, realise that it is the best thing you can do (because it makes you happy the most). But then don't complain because what you do does not bring in as much money as other jobs do. Not everyone can be a doctor, of course if you have good marks you can be everything but a country needs good doctors and not people with good marks (I think you know what I mean). And not everyone can be a lawyer or a teacher…money is not the key, if it would be about the money, I would do some illegal stuff. Reply K Michael says: July 7, 2018 at 5:47 pm It’s so crazy how all those questions she asked are so dumb and mean nothing Reply Kyle Wong Lee says: July 7, 2018 at 8:47 pm That is what u call a brainwashed college student Reply Sungho Yoon says: July 7, 2018 at 10:04 pm Shes hot Reply Landon Horton says: July 7, 2018 at 10:09 pm “By recognizing I have no choice.” Wow Gary. That one hit me. Reply Khalid Safir says: July 7, 2018 at 10:13 pm Do you find your passion or does it find you? I agree in one important way with Gary, that your passion finds you. As entrepreneurs, we tend to be more honest with our selves and so become aware of the functioning of the universe/God, and that things always happen according to a plan, one that we could not have figured out. Yet that plan is deserved, to some extent, so we also have to make an effort, which will not necessarily lead directly to our eventual success, but will be key to it. I would say, find a cause, not a passion, as a cause is more selfless and passion tends to be inward/selfish. Good actions/intentions lead to good results, and vice versa. Hppe that helps someone out there. Reply Yusuf Ameri says: July 8, 2018 at 1:35 am God bless, thanks gary. I don't watch too many of your videos but the little tidbits of advice I get that really resonate with me, I run with.

I have not needed to look for one client yet and I haven't even ran ads yet!🎵 my purpose showed up when I was ready 🎶🦋🦋🎖🎖🏆 Reply Romeo Jefferson says: July 8, 2018 at 2:30 pm I didn't understand the advice or missed it. I'll give an example of myself. I'm a recent engineering graduate and looking to start my own business in the next 1-3 years. Currently I work full-time for a commercial cleaning company and exercising my options of self-employment into the financial industry via marketing and distribution. I'm not exactly solid on the mission and vision of this MLM company as there is money to be made; it's HOW the money can be made that doesn't sit well. All the money in the world means nothing if my conscious, my good intentions, and spirit are at jeopardy being corrupted by the world. I know that I want to face my fears and problems instead of earning money to mask it meanwhile my reality is that I'm sinking in credit and education debt and fighting to get out of it. What will be my next step? Continue with the MLM and earn money on two fronts: recruiting for marketing via manipulation and earn my insurance/investment license? Or work on starting my own business, learn the ins and outs of how to run it, see the reality of paperwork and management. GARY!, WHAT SHOULD I DO??

Reply Michael Frank says: July 10, 2018 at 9:31 am Wow, just had about the same convo with my Mom this morning. About to graduate Uni and don't have a clue what's to come. I even stretched my time at uni in a subconscious fear of the future. Because what I realized there was mainly that the academic world and writing essays and so on wasn't for me. Now I'm at the breaking point where it's either push through the final year that could have been last year, or fail and everything goes to shit. A difficult time when you keep losing focus and interest and therefore confidence in what you are doing. But yeah, don't overthink shit! Just do – things will always work out your way. That has always been kind of my motto and it needs to be again! Reply Gus S. says: July 10, 2018 at 4:22 pm I love the audio during the end when it's just mumbo jumbo over the outro.

Reply Alexi Godoy says: July 12, 2018 at 1:36 pm I’ll never understand why ppl need Gary Vee to tell them this kind of stuff? No offense, but it’s because she’s white. I’m Hispanic and my parents have been through the struggle, just like Gary Vee’s parents. My mom came to this country dodging effing helicopters, bare foot for 4 days, no food, no money, and somehow made it here. And she’s scared of the “unknown” with a degree from penn state? Oh please lol. Keep it up Gary but these types of ppl need something you can’t provide. People like you and I Gary, know what struggle is. I’m the first of 30+ cousins to go to good university and graduate. I have my entire family’s legacy (11 aunts and 2 uncles) riding on me ; and can confidently say that the “unknown” got me to where I am at now. Keep it up Gary ; I never thought I would meet someone with literally the same exact mentality as me, and this was before I heard of you. I was always in my own lane and questioned it ; and now here I am. Thanks Gary. Reply Alvinthetexan says: July 12, 2018 at 9:01 pm This video really spoke to me. I know what I want and I'm willing to go for it, even if it means failing. I have doubts that I will fail, but most people won't take the chance I'm taking so it empowers me. Thanks, Gary! Reply Kyrics Pix says: July 13, 2018 at 2:03 am "How do you deal with the unknown?" 'By recognising I have no fucking choice.' Reply Brandon Grennan says: July 20, 2018 at 2:02 pm Knocked it out of the park Gary! Don’t fret over things that are out of your control. Reply Joel Moran says: July 23, 2018 at 12:53 am Props to the girl having the courage to go and ask Gary those questions. A lot of young people her age wouldn’t even attempt to try and speak to Gary. Unfortunately, fear of failure is what they teach you in school. Failure is viewed as a negative trait. This girl is a product of the system and I truly wish the best for her.

Reply Kyle Richert says: September 19, 2018 at 2:59 pm A lot of people are going to say something like "well I've got a shit ton of loans!" Respect. I do too. But you can't let your debt stop your from pursuing your passions. Take that gig for experience and networking, find a good mentor, and save every penny you can to make your move. If really think student loans are an obstacle, give this a read https://bit.ly/2xlPFWx Hope it helps reduce your anxiety. Reply GABS says: October 6, 2018 at 3:43 pm Who is she?
