The real secret to success is having the talent and then putting in the work and effort. Becoming a millionaire is so audacious, yet people talk about it as if there’s a system that you can win to be successful. The key to success is simply putting in the work and doing a really good job.

    Gary is the reason why I left my full-time job to start my own company. Going from earning a good salary to earning $0, but I now love what I do and I don't care what anybody else says about me, my business or my life unless it is constructive criticism.

    I am extremely fortunate to have somebody like you who is experienced and remain so youthful. You share real advice on tapping into my true purpose. I feel like your advice really helps me to continually shape my character & remain humble and patient and not distracted by others. What belongs to others is not necessarily for me and knowing that I’ve learned to be focused on putting in the work, to stop complaining and to be patient. I’ve learned It’s my responsibility to figure out what I need to do to help myself and if someone else is winning I should look up to them and support them and celebrate there efforts & talent cuz they’ve done it right 👏🏾

    One of my favorite lessons from economics is Ricardo's comparative advantage theory. "If you are not the best at something in the absolute, compared to the rest of the world, good! go do the thing you're best at period, that's where the money is". My very successful gym teacher from junior high isn't Leo Messi, but he loves soccer to death. After a short player career he coached a kids team in Paris, then decided he'd feel better with a teacher job, so he got it. The keyword in "comparative advantage" is "advantage". Tamerlane once said "It is better to be on hand with ten men than absent with ten thousand." It is better to be practicing with something rather than to bragging about twelve times the amount.

    I absolutely admire and look up to this man. Gary, day by day of watching a few hours of your content, it has been changing my mentality, my life, and my future. Thank you! Thank you a million times forever.

    As much as I want to be inspired by this, the "talent" bit is seriously putting me off. I feel like I am doomed to fuckinh fail because I wasn't born with any natural fucking talent. I dream of becoming a pro 3D Artist but since I am not born with any natural talent, it's going to be hell for me.

    I fucking hate this fucking word "talent".

    This is where I differ from Gary. It's context + hard work + average talent. As a former (twice) Olympian, talent is way overrated. Context is by far, the most important component. You can work like there is no tomorrow and be the most talented person however, if you are in a refugee camps in Somalia, well…very good luck.

    Gary, it takes talent and work…and GRIT. It also takes grit. Have you "read" the book, "Grit", by Angela Duckworth? If not, I highly recommend listening to it.
