“Focus on the value you give.”
It’s the advice that changed my life.
I believe that whether you don’t understand, you cannot use to your advantage.
We live in a capitalistic society based on the exchange of value.
This means that to get what you want, whether it is money, mentors, or freedom.
You have to be in the position to give value first to get it back in exchange eventually.
It’s no secret sauce.
It’s all about increasing your chance of giving. By learning new skills, being in the position to provide useful introductions between people, or share insightful advice. In short, of helping other people reach their goals. As a consequence of assisting others to reach their most valuable dreams, you will achieve yours in exchange.
And I don’t say this in a utilitaristic way.
I’ve been blessed to connect with people that used to be my idols when I was a kid, merely because I focused on increasing my opportunity to give value to them. And it all happened automatically.
And that’s how you can do it too.
Someone who applied this concept in his life widely to gain a vast success is Mr. Gary Vaynerchuk.
Check out some of his quotes on hustle, success, entrepreneurship, and marketing.
Gary Vaynerchuk was born in the Soviet Union and migrated to the US in 1978. At a young age, he started hustling with a lemonade stand and trading baseball card. After graduating from college, he applied a digital strategy to his father’s brick and mortar wine business and successfully grew it from $3 million in sales to $60 million in revenue in just five years.
He’s currently the founder of VaynerMedia, an angel investor for companies such as Uber, keynote speaker, and author of four bestselling books. Gary Vaynerchuk has in 2018 an estimated net worth of approximately $ 160 million.
In the past few years, he has built a massive social media following of entrepreneurs and aspiring businesspeople, thanks to his B.S. and fluff-free attitude, that focuses on taking massive actions and hustling hard rather than complaining and giving excuses.
The following best quotes from Gary Vaynerchuk will make you think twice about your mindset, on what you’re focusing, and how you’re running your business.
No wonder Gary underlines the importance of communication for success in life. Whether you’re trying to accomplish in life requires excellent communication skills, ranging from persuasion to clarity in the way you express yourself. Gary isn’t the first wildly successful person who underlined that. Winston Churchill, Aristotle, and many others are extraordinary examples of how communication it’s the number one tool you can use to change the world.
Talking about it is easy. About what your life would look like, all the right things. But you cannot get, without giving. We live in a capitalistic society based on exchanges of value; you have to give to get. If you want to get what you want in life and so be successful, focus on helping other people reach their goals. How? By increasing your capacity of giving value. Expanding your skill set, doing more introductions between people. The result will be that you reach your goals too as a consequence if you keep persisting.
When trying to reverse engineer other people’ success, we often forget that what got them to be successful was a unique set of skills, personality traits, personal inclinations, and circumstance that we don’t have. We don’t understand the why behind somebody else’s success, but only scratch the surface. And that’s totally fine. Get advice from people who are the getting results you want, as much as you can. It is the best way by far to cut your learning curve and get more rapid results. Yet each suggestion has to be digested and implemented on our own personal situation through testing and your use of rationality.
Seneca wrote on his work “On Shortness of Life” how life isn’t short; it’s long enough. If we focus on what truly matters to us, we will get immediately a major sense of bliss and flow. We’ll be in a position to provide more value to other people, and based on what explained before, this will help us get our goals too as a consequence.
A shortsighted mentality will only get you this far. Focus on the long-run when you make your decisions.
Your story ’s what differentiates you from everyone else, in every single industry. Don’t forget about its importance, no matter if you think there’s nothing special in your life. Us human beings are wired to remember and share stories. That’s also how we bond and create trust.
Gary, it’s again expressing the importance of giving. By helping others achieve their goals, you get your goals too as a consequence.
The phase when you create your logo, talk about your project with friends, build your social media profiles for your business, it’s the easy part. Getting sales and have your business running it’s what will bring you far. Focus on what matter.
I started my first business at 13 years old. Since then, I’ve hustled every single day to reach my goals of freedom and lifestyle. As much as I love my life and I’m proud of every moment, outstanding goals requires outstanding sacrifices most of the times.
How many times have you acted cheaply by avoiding offering a coffee, or losing a few bucks, and how mindlessly we do give away minutes if not hours, of our times to people or activities we don’t even care about.
People get so obsessed with marketing. They often think it’s the only thing they need to master to win at the online business game. In reality, trying to market a product that sucks or isn’t a must-have, will demand you way more hours and money to pour in marketing, than actually creating something worthy. Isn’t that you buy immediately something that immediately can solve your problems? Be that solution. Be a must-have. Marketing only serves to amplify that.
Try to “live a life you don’t need a vacation from.” Simple as that.
