Now in this video, I will break down the five biggest lessons that I’ve learned from him so far, and at the end of the video I will even give you a success formula using these tips. And I can guarantee you this one thing, that if you take this formula to heart and execute on it, on a long enough time frame there is nothing in your life that you cannot achieve.
1. Self awareness
So the first thing that you need to know in order to be insanely successful in your life is self awareness. I made a very detailed video with practical psychology on self awareness, which I recommend you check out after this video, but the gist of it is this, you have to know exactly who you are in order to win in life. Play to your strengths. Most people try to work on their weaknesses, because that’s what we’ve been taught in school. We get an a on math and a c on every other subject, instead of our teachers saying wow you’re really good at math you should really focus on that, our teachers say wow you’re so bad at everything else.
2. Hustle is the only variable
Hard work is the only thing that is in your control. Will smith has this famous quote that says, “You cannot outrun me on a treadmill” Which means he’s either going to beat you and you’re going to get off first, or he’s going to die trying. That’s the attitude you need to have if you want to be successful.
3. Attention is the only asset
In the world of sales and marketing, attention is the only asset. Before you even started watching this video, I had your attention. Maybe it was because of the thumbnail, or maybe it’s because you were subscribed to this channel, or maybe because this video showed up in your recommended section. But this video is only worth something, until I have your attention. And according to gary, we are seeing the biggest shift in attention since the world went from the radio to TV.
Let go of the idea that you deserve success right now. Put in the work and be patient. Success comes to those who wait. This is the biggest advantage you can have over your competition, because if you’re patient you can play for long term success, which will always bring greater returns.
5. Be very grateful
So if you’ve seen any of gary’s videos, you might think that he’s all about the energy and bravado. But behind all of that, there’s a lot of humility. And you can see that everytime he stops to take a selfie with a fan, everytime he takes the time to reply to someone’s tweet. The difference between him and everyone else is that he actually cares. He cares about the people who follow him. He’s not there for the money, and he’s very grateful to be wherever he is. You have to be like that if you want to be successful.
