Being rich is great and all, but I mean specifically being a Motivational Speaker. I've wanted to one day do that, for awhile now. I want to write a book too, but both of these things take a pretty incredible life.

I am 23 years old, I graduated from college with 4.0 GPA pre-med. In the process of applying to medical school.I feel like I have no passion to go through this and the only thing that push me this far is due to my family's expectation. I feel like I can't go through this anymore and So I decided to quit going through this route. I feel a lot better.Thank to you, right now I doing eBay which net me about a few thousands a month which can keep me afloat. Still live with my parent though 😉I do not know if this is the right decision or not, but I guess it is the risk I am willing to take. I will come back here in 5 years. Wish me luck. Reply Er.

We have society that automaticaly will judge us. I'm not confident enough to say that I will be okay hearing them saying. And as an oldest daughter I understand that I have responsibility for my brother and my family's future. I'm too afraid to do what I want that drives me happy instead of looking for job with good salary and opportunity to be better. Anw, I know you'll come to Indonesia soon, but I can't join the event. I hope someday I could attend your converence. Thanks for the perspective.

Thanks, brother! Keep killing it. Reply Patricia Lim says: February 23, 2019 at 2:55 pm I’m graduating high school next year and time’s come when my peers and I choose the college majors to apply for. I’m seriously considering a gap year and since I’ve been working for a few years in business and exploring different perspectives/initiatives, I’ve realized that school isn’t everything. Observe that too many students at this point are basing their self-worth on school and it’s unfortunate.Though my parents don’t know this plan yet, and that I won’t be going full-time all four years (in spite of being able to have different experiences while I’m in university), nor that I won’t be going to a top tier school, I’ll have to share that soon, and that will be tough. But also, how can society expect students to think they know exactly what area they want to pursue in university/life when they haven’t been given any real experiences to draw from and support that decision? What a gap here, still in the education system. After all, they’re about to pay $$$ for that supposed decision as well. Reply Masato Hagino says: February 25, 2019 at 6:35 am "this is the time massively risk oriented" I was like oh word fam. I am graduating from a Japanese uni next year 2020 March and trying to figure out what I am gonna do after graduation like the majority of kids do. I would just go to a Japanese company or international companies in Japan which can get me out of Japan sooner or later, but as Gary said in privious videos, your job is gonna be garbage unless you graduate from one of top universities and i think that is so true. The worst feeling that you can have is regret. I am entring the greatest 5 years from now on. he really hypes me up. Cheers Reply im me says: February 25, 2019 at 7:23 am Gary is giving me the hope I lost Reply Kevin Ortiz says: February 27, 2019 at 4:25 pm Guys the regret thing is real. The go to a retirment home is depressing af. I work in a pharmacy most of my clients are old people. And it just kills me man, sometime they dont have money for their madications. They only relied on retirement money and pensions. And are basicaly living a survival situation. That is not life every day i see this and i just want to run to my former high school across the street and warn them about what awaits if they follow the norm. Reply Amisha Shukla says: March 1, 2019 at 10:27 am I promise today to follow my gut and do what I feel correct….I am gonna figure it out what makes my cells dance and make me alive💯…..I actually wanna be happy.😇😇😇 Reply ridhik singh says: March 5, 2019 at 8:32 pm I Promise. Reply Let’s be Real says: March 6, 2019 at 1:01 pm You know I’m glad I can across this video. I recently lost my second job and instead of being mad for some reason I was happy. I now work 3 days a week and the first thing I thought of was “I got my time back. I have time” and I smiled 😏 and you know I’ve been trying to pursue different things but because I didn’t have enough time it was hard taking action. I’m 23 and live with 3 other roommates in nyc and I’ll now be making just enough to live as opposed to making double that but also not having much time for me. I’m ready for taking those risks and trying things out because I am young and like you said this is the perfect tome to do all this. Thank you for this speech🤘🏾 Reply btaftfitness says: March 7, 2019 at 11:22 pm Love this video. I wouldn't be on my journey as a personal trainer if it wasn't for Gary or team Gary Vee .

I have the opportunity to study in China, travel, and be be part of an expansive global network. However tuition is expensive, and after college I’d be at most $120,000 deep in loans. Studying there is my dream and I feel that there are so many benefits, but I’m scared idk what I’m going into because I may not be able to grasp well how much $120,000 is until it becomes a burden in my future. I feel as though not taking this opportunity however would make me regret it forever. What do u think? Reply Yohana Kim says: April 15, 2019 at 12:12 pm Graduating in 3 months and damn so glad I went with what I wanted instead of what my parents wanted, which was an office job at a Korean MNC.
