  1. the fact that parents nowadays are being too much scared of us kids failing as a realy big impact in kids life im 19 and im personnaly affected by that and right now i want to fail more than ever and get up and fail and get up because thats the real way foward you cant always win at everything failure is a path from learning and if you are stuck in a cocoon that make you scared of failure you are not gonna progress great video garry as usual keep it up!!

  2. Fear of rejection, could be the stem from the lack of self understanding and therefore also lack of self love to be able to take in and filter the rejections and be clear who one is and who the other party is

  3. My take on this:
    – Transitioning to different things when it doesn't make sense to other's than yourself is necessary!
    – People dwell on things naturally; stay in comfort zones.
    – People demonize losing; make failing or mistakes look like a bad thing.
    – We need to learn to lose early on to understand it's part of the process.
    – Be able to withstand rejection, 99 no's before the 1st yes.
    – Take failing, mistakes or no's as a stepping stool to something greater.

  4. Great video and content. Only 1 thing Gary….we all know there is only 1 nation in sports. THE RAIDER NATION! Come on we’re both in the same advertising branding marketing field, and Al Davis set that trend long ago. He was a maverick and someone who brought our style of branding to sports before anyone else. I spent my childhood watching The Jets get romped by his teams in the meadowlands. I only bring this up cause everyone uses the term nation for fan bases but it is not original whatsoever. It’s sad that so many teams and brands try to use the term “nation” … there is no such thing as the Red Sux Nation etc. People need to be taught to be original and stand out…that has become lost in today’s Internet Copycat society.

  5. I really dont see this, at 24 and i cant even make friends because im not willing to sit there and support ignorance or malice.

    At this point im litterally just trying to leave the US and hopefully joint the Canadian military if thats even possible

  6. I've never been sooo big on solving problems…too often it's creating a problem that isn't there and then – well we know the story. In the age of mayhem I dream, of discovery, stumbling, reach and creation, grace. And move as I do in that direction. We are stardust, but that's still ancient dust in need of rebirth.

  7. Grand Solar Minimum (1600-1650) 25% of Europe died "everything that grew above the ground died and people starved" quote from then. Gary, the elites knew and they didnt plan for us – well actually they planned to force vaccinate and microchip billions of us, INTERESTING. Right as the global growing zones shift. atleast northern africa will be fertile again, China already there farming it.

  8. Rejection and failure is the path to success. The key is to be patient and persistent through the adversity. Many successful entrepreneurs, parents, political, military and religious leaders have these traits.

  9. This is the best collaboration I have seen so far Gary. Seeing two people with very similar backgrounds and mindsets brought twice the amount of value! Being okay with rejection and loss has been hard recently but I'm continuing to push through.

  10. See a vulnerability in the market that intersects with your skills and/or passions. Exploit it by offering solutions and value to people relentlessly and freely until your name is inextricable from the product or service. Repeat.

  11. I could not agree more! That is what I am doing at BullSnot! 'Engineered for Truckers, Performance for All!' Five years of working my ass off developing products to solve issues for truck drivers. And now on the verge of really breaking out and living the dream 🙂

  12. Is Babylon desolate to this day? I'm asking cause both your guest and I have been. I believe and I am not ashamed in fact I've never been more proud to lift up my voice in praise of God that the people in the Heavenly places may hear

  13. I feel like Moses when he heard God speak.

    I can hear it now clear as day.

    I'm going to continue to pick up the phone, make more calls and eat more shit… While smiling this time.

    Thank you Gary for this video. It could not have come at a better time in my life.
