gary vee is half right.

You need to first identify something Gary Vee misses — that is working to just work is fucking dumb if you have no plan to learn something from it OR apply it to something you want to do.

As a pro athlete that works with youth, young adults, and older generations, I feel like millennials need to hear this workmanship-type advice. But there is one difference about going pro and entering the real world of business.

Most of you are going to hate working for someone else. Most of you are going to hate the culture of corporate America. Most of you are going to be lost, sad, depressed, anxious, and as your voice gets drilled, no, drop-kicked in it’s fucking face (yes, voices can get drop-kicked in the face), you are going to suffer and wonder why.

To be Unbreakable in Life, which none of you are yet (nor am I), we have to actually need and want the process, the community, and the team we build or play for on any given season/year.

Nobody cares what you did in college so think about these 3 Ideas and Questions I found helped me understand what resilience and happiness in the business world meant:

THINK ABOUT BUILDING YOUR SELF-AWARENESS (WHO YOU ARE BECOMING), AUTHENTICITY (KNOWING YOUR INTERNAL CULTURE), AND SELF-IMPROVEMENT (BUILDING THAT CULTURE) INSIDE LIFE’S CONSTANT STATE OF CHANGE.

BECOME UNBREAKABLE first and you’ll be happier as you assimilate jobs, change careers, move to new locations, or lose your identity to gain another.

Time is precious. Don’t do shit you hate. Find your community, your culture, and start incrementally getting better inside of that understanding and awareness.

Build your life the right way and put yourself in the right place to control your Godddddddddamn destiny.

Then burn the rest down, including Gary Vee’s advice (and mine).
