HOW I GOT HEALTHY https://medium.com/@garyvee/how-i-fin...

Direct download: Ep_166.mp3
Category:business -- posted at: 1:17pm EDT

In the last sixteen months of my life, I've changed something major about myself: I've started being healthy.

A year and a half ago, I was eating like crap, not working out, and generally feeling awful. It was a tough life, and I realized quickly that I couldn't sustain a life like that. It was impossible. So I hired a trainer to force me to be better. I made an enormous lifestyle shift, and I am so happy I did.

But it made me realize something about the current state of fitness entrepreneurs. And I want to shine a light on it.

Everybody defaults to what comes easy to them. That should be obvious. But greatness comes from adversity; it comes from looking a challenge directly in the eye and having the fortitude to step up and go after it.

This is what's going on with the fitness want-repreneur world right now.

Everyone is going for what is easy. And that isn't going to pan out if they are serious about becoming a business person. Just like I knew being a great business person wouldn't pan out if I didn't get healthy.

Fitness entrepreneurs want to do the minimal work and still expect a huge return. It's easy for fitness entrepreneurs to do the push ups, to do the squats and deadlifts because that is exactly what got them to where they are now. They started in fitness and now they want to make money just by having those guns or that body. They default into what is easy without recognizing what is hard: running an actual business.

You know what was hard for me? Waking up early. Not eating what I wanted to eat. Powering through workouts. Yet it was easy to build 50M dollar businesses.

I wanted to pass off getting up and running. I wanted to pass off lifting, squatting, stretching. I didn't want to do it. But I had no problem working eighteen hours a day, taking meeting after meeting, and putting in the actual work.

Fitness "entrepreneurs" want to pass on replying to tweets all day to get the word out. They want to pass off the marketing. They want to pass off working hard to create a great interesting post, or doing a bunch of podcasts to get a larger audience. They want to go straight for the mirror selfie so you can get a bunch of Instagram likes, then call that their "business".

Well guess what? It's not good enough.

I have sympathy for how long it can take for something to come together in a big way. I get thousands and thousands of emails a year from people saying they've been working for months at something and they aren't seeing results. It can be disheartening. In a weird way, working out has shown me that more than anything else. I've been working out for sixteen months now and I'm happy, but if you told me sixteen months ago that this what I would have by now, I might say "Ehhhh…"

But the reverse is far worse.

That's why I say to you: just start the work now. Do it. Work hard. Be diligent. Do not let up. You have the body. You have the chops. You did all that. Now get to the business side of things and grow that muscle too.

Everyone who watches this has one weakness they are aware of. Something they aren't good at. Something they haven't addressed. Everyone. That is the beginning of the process of self-awareness.

One of the most important things for me when it comes to running a team is making everyone feel safe. Because when people feel safe, they start telling the truth. And that is an enormous upside in running a business. If everyone can be honest with themselves, be truthful about who they actually are versus who they want to be, that is when the magic happens.

This video speaks to all of that, and more. I hope you enjoy it. Let me know in the comments what you think, and would love to hear your story about self-awareness.

How do you deal with that, I can't switch off, brain is constantly working.

MY NEWEST ARTICLE https://www.garyvaynerchuk.com/never-automate-human-interactions-1172387580.html

 

Many things I say are contradictions. I like pulling from both directions because it brings strengths. I really do think that life and business are bridges, and if you pull hard in both directions, you'll find balance. For example, ego and humility. You need both, but you can't have to much of one. Same with clouds and dirt, aka, higher level and execution. 

So when I say don't pay attention to small details, but I also say play to your strengths but your strength is attention to detail, I understand it can be hard to figure out what to do. But I have an idea. If your strength is attention to detail but you're looking for long term business success, there are some things you need to consider.

First, if you're top dog, your business is going to be small. But you would be an awesome number two three or four to a top dog. You need to pair yourself with someone who only thinks about the clouds and isn't down in the dirt like you are. You might even be happier not having the pressure of being number one because it will allow you to pay attention to those small details you would not normally be able to. Attach yourself to a number one and bet on your strengths.

If your strength is finite details, your upside is limited as the number one. You have two decisions to make. One, you're cool with that. Or two, you're going to latch on to someone who will be able to elevate your work and your eight or twenty percent will be greater than the a hundred percent you do for yourself.

REASONS TO NEVER AUTOMATE https://www.garyvaynerchuk.com/never-...
RANT ON AUTOMATION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLxqG...

I think I need to clarify my POV on automation. So here I go.

I don't like automation when it's replacing something that could and should be done by a human. For example, I don't like the idea of an automatic direct message that sends when you follow somebody, or somebody follows you. It feels very spammy. 

However, automation does some times make sense. We use it at Wine Library. When your order is confirmed, we send an email that says "Hey, your order is ready." 

There is a fine line between what one would quantify as the thing that a human should do and the thing a computer should do. When automation tries to take the place of a human, that is when things get weird. When you use a computer to automatically populate names into mass emails that are SUPPOSED to look personal, that's messed up. When you sign an automation with your own name as if you did, that is also messed up.

To me, it all comes around to the intent of the automation. If you're trying to "trick" someone into thinking it's a person, that is where things get tricky. 

One would argue that automating makes for a lot of conversion. But for me, I think there is more value in someone reaching out personally. I don't want a computer to be responding to you as me. When I have free moments, I try to answer every email I get. Personally.

So automation makes sense for a lot of things. But people are trying to use it to scale humans when there is a human element that matters. Ask yourself right now: does automation bug you when it tries to be human?

The answer is YES.

There is something that is rarely talked about in the business world and I want to start building more attention for it.

That thing is self-awareness.

I’m upset that the narrative these days is that everyone needs to be number one, own a company, be in charge. A lot of people are going to lose that way.

Self-awareness allows people to recognize what things they do best so they can then go hard on those aspects of their life. It also helps you accept your weaknesses.

What works for one person doesn’t work for everyone. I want people to learn to be at peace with themselves, to understand what they can offer, because everyone’s got something. The key, however, is learning how to find it.

Self-awareness can help you do that.

Self-awareness is being able to accept your weaknesses while focusing all of your attention on your strengths.

The moment you decide to accept your shortcomings and bet entirely on your strengths, things will change. Trust me.

FAITHBOX: http://faithbox.com/

 

I truly don't think that when I'm being selfish, it comes at the detriment of someone else.

So that's how I handle it.

That can be a hard thing to make yourself believe. Watching someone else have a hard time because of a decision you made is extremely upsetting to a lot of people. But I have a way to justify it.

When I'm in my most selfish place, I don't try to conceal the act in some way that hides what it is. I don't try to sugar coat or act like it's a good thing. Let them be upset because that is their right.

Even though  I am doing something that looks selfish to benefit me in the short term, it is actually going to positively affect the people it involves in the long term. I am making a decision in a five month window instead of a five year window, but history will allow that person to feel that it was palatable when they rekindle their thoughts around it. Even though it might sting or not feel as great in the short term, I know that looking back, it will be okay. Because I made the decision that was hard, but right.

When people start their pitches to me by saying "But first, please sign this NDA so our ideas don't get stolen", I immediately check out. Why? Because if you actually think in 2015 that your idea is so profound and nobody has ever thought of it, then you are lost in the reality of the marketplace. If that is your mindset, I don't see that as a winning mindset. Starting now, 2015 and beyond, the days of patenting ideas, IP being stolen, are gone. Every idea has been thought of. All of them. I mean it.

Now, people actually executing on those ideas? That is the big one now. You need to have the right resources, be in the right place in your career, have energy, skills, opportunities: those are the variables. Not the ideas.

There is nothing the DMV can do to improve their situation. Let me explain why. Because they are run by the state. So, it's political. They won't fix it. The only way to fix DMVs is the privatize them and let entrepreneurs run them. They, for a change, will actually care about the customer. Employees will care, because they would have incentives. Maybe they would even put Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts inside of the DMVs, to make more money on the rent.

Basically, privatized DMVs would innovate. Care. Give a crap. All the things that government industries don't do because it is not in their best interest. The people that can't innovate and can't win in a competitive landscape default to having terrible careless services. 

I don't want to be a hardcore capitalist on this issue, though. But I really don't know. If you don't incentivize humans somehow to do the right thing, you can't win. AND...more and more, in a digital world, it's become easier to do that. There is no excuse any more. There are alternatives.

People will pay for anything...if they perceive it has value. If there was an #AskGaryVee Show in 1967 and I got a question like this, I'd say something like "Hey groovy cats, it's the AskGaryVee Show. Dawn, your question is like asking if people will pay for water. No way!" That would be the WRONG answer. What happened was that Poland Springs, and probably a lot of brands before Poland Springs, came along and convinced people that bottled water had value. Here's a fun weekend activity: go ask your grandparents what they thought about the idea of people paying for water. 

In fact, think about how you feel. A $4 bottle of water in an airport? We've all done it. It's an absolute brain twist.

So yes, people will pay for answers from experts on live streaming apps. Even though you can watch now for free, people will stay end up paying down the road.

Now the question is: are you good enough to charge people? Have you built up equity? Have you put in the WORK?

And more importantly, how many people have built up that presence and have the charisma and ability to charge per answer. 

The people that have pulled it off have had to be in an interesting part of their career, or they really enjoyed it. I love Q&As so much that I do this show for me. Do you have the chops to make it happen for you?

#QOTD, from Suzy Welch: In our book we make the case that the place you should be working is something we call your "area of destiny." It's the intersection of what you're uniquely good at and what you love to do. How many of you feel that you are currently working in your area of destiny?

How important is failure? The failure has to be quantified. If you fail and then can never get up from it again, that's not a good kind of failure. Failure and adversity are the two things I think about. For me, as an entrepreneur, all my failures along the way have been a lesson. I'm even thinking back to when I attended my first baseball card trade show. I bought a table at 13 for $400 and nobody showed up. That was a lesson. Those micro failures were super super important. But it also depends on your stomach. If you really go out of business, people can go one of two ways. Either they're just finished and they're never able to get off the mat, or they go in a different direction. So to me, quantifying the failure is important.

What do I think about Disney investing in the Magic Band, and the future of wearable tech in general? You know the answer. This is an interesting question because this is the kind of future that is inevitable. Smart, wearable technologies is going to eat up the world. Everything in the world will be smart. All of it. ALL of it. Your shirt. Your pants. Your underwear. Your socks. It's all coming over the next ten to twenty to thirty years.

It allows things that are physical to go so much further in the digital world. The layering and ammo that this gives Disney in that upfront investment is extraordinary. The recall, the content pushing out, the unlocking new virtual features - all of a sudden now, they have the ability to change the flow of the park. One of the things that I am most fascinated by right now as a retailer is efficiency. Efficiency everywhere. In an airport, an amusement park, or a retail store. Where do you know there are always going to be congested areas? Then, where are the places people just aren't going? Now imagine slapping some technology on a rock all the way in left field that requires people to go there. Now you're moving people there, making less lines. People are buying more food; even a fourth of a hot dog adds up to a lot. 

Those are the things you need to be thinking about. The Apple Watch is going to be a game changer whether it is successful or not. I do have one on pre-order, and I think that buzzing on your body that saves you time (and you know how I feel about time) from looking at your phone is super huge. If it clicks the way the smartphone did, you'll start having people at scale with it. The watch.

Look at it for your business if you produce stuff. As an investor, I'm looking at companies getting involved in it.

What would you say is the the biggest obstacle to your success right now? A lack of time? Maybe a lack of capital? Or maybe a lack of good employees?

Nope. All wrong.

The biggest obstacle to success is a lack of optimism.

I’ll back up.

The fact that people go straight to any other answer is the problem in itself. Money and time are, of course, difficulties. When I started WineLibrary, I had time but we didn’t necessarily have the money. So it took more time. Today, I have the money, but boy do I not have the time. Fact is, though, that neither should ever be an excuse. They weren’t for me, and they shouldn’t be for you.

This is something I really need everyone to understand. No one should ever point to time or money as an obstacle. They are firmly in the excuses column, and I have no patience for that. I will never make an excuse. Everything that is a problem with me, everything I don’t achieve and everything wrong with VaynerMedia is my fault. I succumb to that, I respect that, and that’s how I think it should be. No excuses. Even more so, you shouldn’t let yourself have patience for excuses either. Train yourself to believe this, and you will see amazing results. No joke. There will always be problems, and you need to get out of the mindset that they are obstacles because you should already assume they will be there. They’re just part of the path, my friend.

Because guess what? There are about a million other things that could stop success in it’s tracks. The health and well being of your family. The world is changing. The media, bad coverage of you. I’m a human being, and I always wonder what would happen if I say the wrong thing. Any of these things could happen, but they are the same thing: excuses.

There are a million reasons why not, but there is one good reason why, which is this: you just have to persevere.

No matter what happens, it’s the way it is, and you have to keep going. And that is where the optimism lives. If you truly believe that you can do it no matter what, you’ve got this. The only reason you might bring up any of the previous excuses we talked about is because you DON’T believe, right? Do not let that kind of thinking ever get in the way.

So. You can pick time. You can pick money. Pick any one or two things that you think stop you from winning your game. But the truth is there are a million reasons. Get thicker skin. Build up your self esteem. To be able to get through, you need to have optimism. Every day is hard, and all you have to fight it in the end is yourself.
