  • - The problem is 98% of people

  • are sitting on 50/50 their whole fucking life,

  • which means they're zero-zero.

  • So when you're 50/50, you get one day,

  • and anything else is you're just fucking

  • sitting and bullshitting.

  • So fucking flip a coin, pick the one, never look back.

  • (waves rolling)

  • (electronic noises)

  • - [Woman] Anybody out there?

  • I have a big life decision to make,

  • between two choices.

  • (electronic noises)

  • How do I know which way to go?

  • - You'll never know what the alternative would have been.

  • You pick one and you never ever, ever even consider

  • to look back.

  • - [Woman] Do you have any quick piece of advice?

  • - [Man] What should I do?

  • Should I do?

  • - [Man] I don't know which one to pick.

  • - [Man] What should I do?

  • - [Interviewer] So what should we do Gary V?

  • - [Man] What should I do?

  • - [Interviewer] What should people do?

  • - Until you go through it, you won't know.

  • I always play this out.

  • Let's say when you go to heaven,

  • they can show you what would've happened

  • 'cause that's the only way you'd ever see it.

  • Let's just say

  • what people don't understand is,

  • oh, Becca, you made the wrong call.

  • You should've went to grad school

  • instead of that opportunity

  • or this company instead of that company.

  • But you'll never believe it.

  • You should've went to VaynerMedia and it was perfect

  • and you rose like the phoenix

  • and you were the head of all sound

  • and everything went great.

  • But then you had to go to Virginia on business

  • and you got hit by a car and you died at 31.

  • That's life.

  • (calm instrumental)

  • I passed on Uber as an investor twice in the beginning.

  • If I did my normal 25, $50,000 check,

  • I would've made $400 million

  • which means I might've went to China

  • for a keynote two years ago

  • which means I could've got hit by a fucking bus.

  • I really believe in that shit.

  • You just don't know.

  • You think you know but that is not how life works.

  • So, to look at two ideas and think you can practically

  • make a good decision is laughable.

  • Literally flip a coin.

  • (coin flipping)

  • Just pick the one that feels better right that second.

  • And make it about you

  • because usually what kids struggle with is the decision

  • they want to do

  • versus the decision that they think they're supposed to do

  • based on the other voices.

  • You know, I think everybody who's listening right now

  • if you wanna set yourself up for success,

  • ask yourself how much risk you've taken

  • in the first 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 years of your life.

  • You're gonna figure it out by tasting it.

  • Should I eat this cherry?

  • Will I like it?

  • The right strategy is to fucking eat the cherry.

  • Right?

  • Moving is important.

  • 'Cause you can change the course.

  • You can't overthink it up front.

  • Right?

  • You just can't.

  • Like, we're always wrong.

  • A lot of people make the wrong decision.

  • No matter what I say to your question right now

  • and they're scared, they'll continue to be,

  • they won't do, they won't put in the work

  • or they'll be fearful or whatever it may be

  • and they'll lose.

  • I mean, a lot of people lose.

  • A lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of people lose.

  • The way to really eliminate fear

  • is by not giving a fuck about anybody's opinion.

  • My losses are mine.

  • I'll deal with them myself.

  • I don't need your two cents.

  • You're losing plenty on your own.

  • If you don't give a fuck about what people think,

  • you can do everything.

  • But the quicker you start, the quicker you do.

  • I think people dwell.

  • And I think dwelling is the wrong strategy.

  • I don't even respect my losses.

  • I don't even give them the time

  • to teach me anything.

  • I fucking look 'em in the face and just go,

  • "Fuck you,"

  • and I keep going.

  • Think one time for one hour,

  • make the decision and go.

  • I don't wanna hear you

  • fucking complaining about it everyday.

  • And I mean that.

  • Way too many of you dwell on your losses.

  • It's holding you back.

  • Too many people make a decision

  • and then cry about their decision every fucking second.

  • You made a fucking decision.

  • Own it, live it, sleep in that bed.

  • Shit's over.

  • You lost.

  • Move the fuck on.

  • (birds chirping)

  • Literally flip a coin.

  • Guys, the only thing I'm hedging against is regret.

  • That's what you need to be careful of.

  • Regret's scary.

  • Regret.

  • And that's what most people do.

  • They build a life that leads to regret.

  • Nobody old and about to die talks about what they did.

  • They talk about what they didn't do.

  • And you're in the best spot right now.

  • You're in the best spot you'll ever be.

  • Straight up.

  • This is the time to be most thoughtful

  • but everybody wants you to figure out your life now.

  • Your parents don't have their lives figured out.

  • This is the time to taste

  • and put yourself in good positions.

  • You could do everything wrong

  • for the next 10 years of your life

  • and be young as fuck.

  • And have unlimited time to do anything you want.

  • (serene instrumental)

  • - [Woman] Thank you Gary.

  • Now I know which way to go.

  • (waves crashing)

  • By the way, it was tails.
