Heard this gem from Gary Vee when he was on the Jim Rome show.
He was was talking about a question he received from a woman during one of his talks.
The question was something like: “Can you offer me motivation? I’m stuck.”
His answer: “You’re Gonna Die.”
Jarring, but it worked.
It’s something that makes me think of motivational speaking guru Tony Robbins.
He talks about how change comes when you change someones state. One of the most effective ways to do this is to shock them. A statement like this is shocking. But its also true.
When you realize that life is going to end, you drop the trivial, insignificant things and start focusing on the important.
You realize that time is short and that you need to hustle.
You realize that it doesn’t matter what others think or say about you, all that stands in the way of you and your goal is YOU.
We won’t be able to do this forever.
