  • - The underlying current when people write about you.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Is who the (beep) is this guy?

  • - Yeah.

  • - I mean, you get that, right?

  • - [Gary] Of course.

  • - Who the (beep) are you?

  • (ambient music)

  • - This is a word that is rarely talked about in our space

  • that I wanna start building more attention for.

  • Self-awareness.

  • I wanna deliver on this message so much.

  • I would create a test or a drug

  • that allowed people to become self-aware.

  • One potion inject, not hustle, not smart.

  • Self-awareness.

  • I don't fear being self-aware.

  • I know I suck at a lot of stuff.

  • I think everybody lies to themselves.

  • Some people are meant to be B and C players.

  • And I'm pissed that the narrative now

  • is that you need to be a number one

  • and have your company.

  • Because a lot of people are gonna lose

  • or leave money on the table,

  • because that's just the narrative.

  • 'Cause I'm such a positive guy,

  • I struggle to think about the things I'm bad at,

  • but self-awareness requires understanding both

  • and then choosing which path you wanna go through.

  • I'm a big fan of going all in on your strengths.

  • And don't give a fuck about what you suck at.

  • Self-awareness isn't only just betting on your strengths,

  • it's accepting all your shortcomings.

  • Let me tell you one thing.

  • What works for me does not necessarily work for you.

  • I think being at peace with yourself and your skill set

  • is such an important part of this.

  • Too many people try to be like me,

  • because it's sizzly and it's sexy,

  • and people wanna be charismatic and on stage.

  • So many of you do so many things better than I do.

  • You can look at how people roll,

  • and it's great to admire and things of that nature,

  • but it's so damn important to stick to your DNA.

  • Try to get to a place where you understand yourself

  • and understand what your strengths are.

  • You've gotta find your self-awareness.

  • All your shortcomings are there for a reason.

  • They're there to also allow you to be great.

  • Deep in your brain, deep in your heart,

  • you actually accept all those shortcomings,

  • is the second your life goes on the offense.

  • I worry that people don't tap into their strengths.

  • You have to audit who you actually are,

  • because then you're not gonna bullshit yourself.

  • You're gonna story-tell yourself,

  • you're gonna motivate yourself,

  • but you're not gonna bullshit yourself.

  • And once you believe that,

  • either for yourself or someone else told you,

  • go directly all chips, all in to that.

  • And we've all got something,

  • and you just need to accept what's yours

  • and go in on that.

  • Then you've got a starting point to success.

  • And so self-awareness at its finest

  • is accepting your shortcomings

  • and accentuating your strengths.

  • - Who the (beep) are you?

  • - I'm an entrepreneur.

- The underlying current when people write about you.
