Episode-80- Your “Level” Should not be Considered your “Limit”

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , — JackSpirko @ 5:10 pm

Over the weekend I posted a really awesome and I mean really awesome video of Gary Vaynerchuk about working your ass off and he used the phrase “at your level” quite a few times.  I found his use of the term spot on but it concerned me that many may take it the wrong way.  A “level” is not a “limitation”.  Gary’s point was that not everyone is going to be as big as he is, further that he won’t ever be as big as say Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg, that we all have “levels” we operate within.

This is true but unfortunately many people assign themselves a level rather than work their asses off to the absolute limits of their limitations and letting that result in their “level” of success.  To me this is why many people end up far less successful than they are capable of.  Tune in today to hear more on this concept.

Gary Vaynerchuck on Getting it Done!

Filed under: Videos — Tags: , — JackSpirko @ 10:37 am

Gary is one of my very favorite business visionaries of all time.  This video rocks, it is hard core, it is real and hell, doesn’t he sound just like me?  Or do I sound like him?  LOL.  Just thought this would be a good one for the weekend.

Content warning – as usual Gary is even a bit harsher with language then I am.  You have been warned.

Enjoy the Superbowl tomorrow folks!

I think Gary Vaynerchuk and I are Long Lost Brothers

Much of what I say and have said about business for years is so in sync with what Vaynerchuk talks about it may seem that we are plagiarizing each other.  This time though at least I got the message out first!  On July 13th, I did Episode 7 of Five Minutes with Jack called, “Don’t Deny Your True Nature“, it was in response to someone that said following your passion is bad advice for most people and that someone has to do the hard dirty jobs.

So on January 20th Gary Vaynerchuck releases the video below.  If you ever get a chance to talk to Gary tell him that he needs to answer my emails and we need to talk.  Once you watch Gary’s video (which is stellar as always) watch my episode 7 again and while there are some difference, I mean he doesn’t use a snake now does he notice how similar the objections and responses are.

By the way I am about to tape a few more episodes, sorry about none on Monday and Tuesday but I was off at Big Bend National Park doing a Project with ITS Tactical.
