“You’re too soft to beat me”
That’s what Gary Vaynerchuk believes. Gary is a powerhouse, he is a beast in the entrepreneurial space and his belief is “you’re too soft to beat me”
It’s interesting because as I study more and more entrepreneurs especially the greats, the entrepreneurs who are considered to be household names; they hold a similar belief.
There’s a toughness, a grit, a belief, that they will not be denied even if they don’t know the way. Even if it defies logic and reason…there is still this unwavering belief that says “I can do it”.
Growing up I thought being a success in business meant you MUST have an MBA, you MUST know people (or your family does), you MUST come from money or you MUST be super smart.
Yet I’ve met several people who don’t have any of these things and their businesses are crushing it.
In fact, have you ever met someone or maybe you know them personally and they are massively successful and you think to yourself…how in the hell is this happening?
Gary says he was a D and F student. His company Vaynermedia is a freight train and now he is one of the most powerful entrepreneurs of our time. How is this possible?
It’s possible because the world doesn’t pay you for what you know…it pays you for what you do! Success doesn’t care about your background.
