Gary Vaynerchuk, aka Gary Vee, is a top proponent of “get shit done” and “no excuses.” He’s also the guy behind the new world of advertising which is so good, you don’t even know you’re being sold!

You don’t have to be in business or an entrepreneur to appreciate his energy, drive, and message of positivity. I know I’ve benefited greatly from not just listening to, but applying his advice.

Here is his best advice to live your best life.

1. “If some people used half the energy they use in judging others on looking at themselves and how to be better, the world would be a far better place.”

. A Monday night rant, just reading my feeds, emails, twitter, FB, insta .. so many people wasting energy on some dumb shit. – So many sitting on their high horse without looking in the mirror. – The best thing my parents taught me is an incredible ability to not pay attention to others, not judge others, focus on myself, be accountable. – I so badly want this community here on insta to be accountable and lack judgement, let’s focus on ourselves and let’s deploy ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️ instead of the darkness that so many sling these days. – When I’m unhappy or struggling I ask myself why I put myself in that position and what I can do about not who can I blame! – Let’s win! – #garyvee #winningDNA #accountability #selfimprovement

It’s simple, people, focus on you. Be better, do better, live better. It’s good to have people to look up to, but don’t compare yourself!

You are a unique person and whether you know it or not, you have value that your role models don’t have.

Figure out what that is, and do that!

2. “Never let someone’s opinions dictate your execution.

I can relate to this personally, having been rejected from other writing publications, and listening to “supposed” friends belittle my goals and ambitions.

The important thing is to keep going! Someone will appreciate you and your work.

3. “My energy, every single ounce of it comes from gratitude.”

Take a look around. If you live in the US, you are one of the richest people in the world and you have the opportunity if you’re paying attention.

Be grateful for the little things. Clean air, drinkable water, an able body, and sunshine. You have it made, you just don’t know it!

It starts with gratitude.

4. “You find what you’re looking for, meaning if you want to find bad in the world, it’s easy, but I also believe the same can be said for happiness and good.

There’s another saying which I think is appropriate here:

If you say you can’t, you can’t. 

Meaning your mindset dictates your abilities.

Success does not follow people who don’t believe in themselves. That is the first thing, above all else.

Believe you can, and you will.

5. “Accountability leads to happiness.”

. 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 🔑

Take control. If you think other people or situations are the reason you aren’t succeeding, then you fundamentally don’t believe you are in control of your life.

You are in charge of your life which means you can change it.

6. “The talented want others to win, cause they don’t see it coming out of ‘theirs.’”

There is no reason to be jealous! There is room for you, too!

And you wouldn’t believe how rewarding it is to lift up other people on their journeys and celebrate their successes! And more often than not, those people will remember you and return the favor!

There’s plenty to go around and it’s never too late to adopt a winning attitude.

7. “It’s more important to learn and fail than it is to always be right.”

Honestly, that was me for most of my life. I didn’t take the risks I needed. I played it safe because I didn’t want to fail and be judged for failing.

Well, guess what? You have to fail. And you have to learn.

It sucks, but the reward is greater if you take a chance, and then another, and another. Staying in the shadows won’t get you anywhere.

And doing nothing, in the end, is the ultimate failure.

8. “A funny thing happens when you give love without expectation.

That could be complimenting a stranger, or surprising your loved one with flowers, or giving a big tip to a server.

I love paying it forward because it feels good for me and I love seeing people smile! It’s totally selfish! Try it!

9. “Kindness is the ultimate strength.”

It’s not weakness. Isn’t love the most powerful force in the world?

Bring it into your life, into your work, into today. Lead from the heart and see what a difference it makes!

10. “Don’t justify your dreams, execute them.

I’ve heard this said another way too, “don’t tell anyone your next move.”

I think there is value in this just from my experience. When I’ve told people I wanted to write, more often than not, I would get the feeling like I said something wrong.

Talking about your dreams or aspirations is a waste of time, and often welcomes judgment.

Just do you and let the results speak for themselves. TC mark
