Completely adore that you invited Gary V into this conversation. Because he makes no excuses and calls people to perform despite adversity.
Then there’s this: “Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.”
I wanted to shout “duh” from my loins because if you don’t get that you have to ignore what others think to succeed then you don’t have the secret sauce to begin the journey. Get some guts! The world won’t hand you anything. You have to be strong enough to fight for it! That’s some food for thought! Go get it!
