How many of you could be so much happier if you had a different job or started that business you wanted? – One of the things that have emerged is you taking a minute to audit how you spend money and what you spend it on? – For example I wonder how many people here keep their job just to keep up with the joneses and have a nicer house and car and jewelry and vacations and perks that they actually “need” and if they addressed that, they could start that business or not hate their 9-5. – When you learn to tune out “others” especially their weighted opinions of you, life starts getting good. – Tag someone who needs it. – #onelife #garyvee #motivation #selfworth #strategy in #life

4- Accountability and less entitlement are the way to go

. Either you were born with too little or born with too much. That is the conclusion I have made based on the 10’000’s of interactions I’ve had over the last year. – Here is the issue and the opportunity, so many of you who stopped to read this blame something or someone else. That’s super fine and all but the issue is simple, once you learn to blame yourself happiness is around the corner. – The issue with blaming Someone or something is it makes you feel like your not in control and not being in control of your life leads to extreme happiness. Allowing someone to be in control aka your parents are paying for shit because you have too big of an ego to work somewhere basic or too lazy to put in the super hard work to make something for yourself, sucks, but it’s reality. – Blaming where you were born, to whom, who was around you or terrible events all leads to negative shit. – Make this morning the morning you blame yourself for everything whether it’s true or not the mindset will lead to your happiness. – PS: be smart about blame, it’s in the past, who gives a fuck, it’s over, the accountability that you are in control of today and tomorrow is the 🔑

5- Positivity is the right content

. If you can get these two traits “down” and in harmony it becomes the blueprint to success. – To the many of you who see this I want to wish you a wonderful end to the holiday weekend. I also want you to spend today and reflect on 2 things. – #optimism : it’s so underrated, actually believing in the good, in the opportunity, in the possible is a huge factor, those who aren’t optimistic about the future tend to find failure. – #2 action : I am stunned how many aren’t all in on “doing” the work, the effort, the early mornings and late nights of you want it so bad, matter! Auditing what your doing from 9-5 or 8-6 or 7-7 or 6-8 of whatever your hours are is very important, are you reading and watching about success or are your creating, taking meetings, executing on your ambition. – Tag the last person you DM’d – #garyvee #hustle #ambition

6- Appreciate where you are, and what you’re doing

. The difference? – I do my own social media, I type every word you see, I reply, I read my comments, I answer DM’s when I can, I read DM’s. – I run my businesses @vaynermedia & @purewow and the rest of the VaynerX companies have almost 1000 employees and 200m in revenue, I operate them, I sit in meetings, I make deals, I manage people, I WORK. – The way I come up with my thoughts is by listening while I work and paying attention to the market and my employees and other signals in the market. – #strategy is what I do, getting to them is the more interesting part 😉. – #garyvee #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurship – What do you do in the trenches? How do you come up with your strategy?
