    Gary is good influence, his harsh reality attitude is pretty accurate.

    One of a small hand full of dudes I highly respect and listen to often, this guy knows his shit. Most people that have just come across him see those videos and don't know that Gary runs a very successful advertising agency, he's not a bullshitting guru spouting fluff on youtube videos. He doesn't just talk the talk.. he walks it too.

    They aren't "excuses" Your chances of going from nothing to being a millionaire is near impossible.

    "Today, the new man going into business, like the individual consumer, does not realize that all the possibilities in almost every situation have been determined down to decimal places by computers owned by Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc.. and the results have been evaluated by staffs of exceedingly acute experts. In pitting himself against these computers and highly paid experts, the ordinary man is very much like an amateur chess player who elects to pit his skill against a consulting collection of chess masters. His doom is virtually sealed with his very first move."

    With an attitude like that it certainly would be near impossible. I know members on just this forum that went from nothing to millionaires, it happens more often than you think. Old Lundberg was off the mark on that one, heck if anything those companies he listed have made it easier for individuals to run and scale advertising campaigns like they never could in Lundbergs younger years.

    *Edit: Also that quote has to be fake.. Lunberg died in 1995 Facebook wasn't even around until 2004?

    He says he dosen't want our money?
    Don't you think he has a plan to monetize all his followers like Tim Ferris or Tony Robbins? Those guys could buy the jets thanks to their followers

    Also I think the book "Think and Grow Rich" is another really good source. It was commissioned by Andrew Carnegie the self-made billionaire steel tycoon. One read is endless motivation for life.

    I firmly believe that people shouldn't want to be millionaires. Why do you want million bucks? Working every day, living 10 years shorter when stress takes its toll. There are so many people around us that aren't born for it. Fanaticism, dedication, endless boring repetitive grinds. Why is it socially unacceptable to work 3 days a week, and enjoy 4, if someone loves his life that way. Cut the luxury, see the world, spend time with people you love, and die happy.

    Why everybody wait to get cancer first to see what they really want from life? I'm yet to see a person to say "why didn't i earn more" on their deathbeds

    Bc people suck.

    If someone wants to be a millionaire, fine. But if someone just wants to make enough money to live comfortably, that's perfectly acceptable too. They have to live their lives the way they see fit, not the way you want them to live it.

    I'm not a millionaire but I'm very happy with what I make. I'm comfortable and I enjoy my life. That is good enough for me.

    Anybody can become a millionaire, hell, even a billionaire, but not everybody in the same time.

    This is a life where we have to fight for resources, to get that piece of the pie.

    Gary is a little idealistic, but I'd take this guy over any BS guru.

    The reason why Gary is right in just fucking taking action and shit like that is because nobody else take action. Because it's very difficult to take action and mantain it/persist on that shit.

    If people would understand the long term investment, then I can assure that it would be much much muuuch harder.(The gap between poor and rich would get really tight).

    But since even after 2000 years, the world it's how it is right now, I'm sure that the things won't change at all in the future.

    Even people who watch Gary's videos would get excited about what he's saying and prob won't take action(BTW I like this guy). It's not about words, it's about mindset/perception.

    Back in the april last year when I've joined I was set on get rich quick. When I saw BTB's method I was like wow, so damn simple. Well it wasn't like that.

    Many people even told me that it takes time to see results, but I disregarded them. Even now I still struggle with this long term mindset.

    Attitude has no bearing on statistics. The majority of people on this planet will die in the class they were born in. America is filled with "temporarily embarrassed millionaires" who believe that they are going to go from making $10 an hour to Multi-Millionaire business owner.

    There are only three ways people reach millionaire status.

    1. They inherit wealth. Like Gary Vee inherited a $4 million dollar wine business and expanded it with shrewd operations to a $50 million wine business. The same with Charles Koch he took a $21 million dollar private business and turned it into a $100 billion dollar private business.

    2. Become The Millionaire Next Door by practicing long term financial planning. This is a family with dual incomes who hoarded their paychecks and lived far below their means, and they became a "millionaire" by their mid-60s.

    3. Luck or lotto. These are your BHW members, Mark Zuckerberg, etc.. revolutionary business idea with perfect timing and execution.


    That quote from Lundberg is from his book "The Rich and The Super Rich" (page 60) instead of Facebook he said "batteries of computers". Today in 2017 these computers are owned by billion dollar corporations like Facebook.

    you think that Garry Vee is like a lucky one, inherit $4 million business from his father, and it's hard to be a millionaire, in online or offline ...well that's all the poor thinks

    why? ...


    because no one wants to TAKE ACTION and ...Fail...everyone now wants a real quick money, without that failing part...people looks for guarantees in business in life...

    no one wants to pay the price

    Money brings money. Id like to see the guru Gary start from scratch and with his ambitious quotes achieve the same success.

    Its not about chances or luck or even money it's about the rush of making a business. What else is someone going to do besides work for the next income level?
    Spend time with kids? Have a wine with friends? Kiss women/dudes ?
    That stuff is boring af to successful entrepreneurs, they got exciting businesses to make/run.


    It's like very low risk gambling too. Someone wouldn't go from $10 to ten mil, they'd have to turn the ten into 1000 then 10,000 then 100,000 which would take 5 years but then they are within striking distance of 1 mil and 10 mil

    I don't classify Gary as a guru. He isn't saying its easy. And he is right. People don't have strong will today. They aren't smart or hardworking. And they all think they are, but some higher power is pulling the strings. People are afraid, they play safe, take paths of least resistance. It all comes down to how honest we are with ourselves.

    You know your stuff @Minnehaha many sleep on that book and it changes lives for the wealth....

    It's never the money, but rather the lfiestyle it provides that should be the goal. Money is and should always be a byproduct of heading towards that end :)
