  1. Go after the things we want- Go after what you want in life and break all those things that come in your life
  2. Sometimes we are the problem- It’s good to accept your mistake and understand that sometimes you are the one creating issues. You have to own it up and back out or work on it.
  3. Take care of each other- It’s not about how fast, smart or intelligent you are. Take help when you need it and provide it when someone else needs it. This will ensure you grow your connections.
  4. Learn to be the last one to speak- Hold on to your opinions. Listen to others; what they think about you and why they do what they do. Then, speak your points as that’ll help you to be clearer.
  5. It’s not meant for you but for your position- Learn humility. Success will be achieved as you move ahead, by your position. Don’t let success get to your head, don’t be arrogant at all.

Gary Vaynerchuk


“I put zero weight into anyone’s opinion about me because I know exactly who I am. Can you say the same? When?”

The question is being asked to you by Gary Vaynerchuk himself.

Gary Vaynerchuk is a Belarusian-American entrepreneur, author, speaker and internet personality, who has given many motivational talks as well.

Co-Founder of Resy & Empathy Wines, chairman of VaynerX and CEO of VaynerX subsidiary VaynerMedia. Vaynerchuk is now more famous for his work in digital marketing and social media.

He has grown his business excessively. Vaynerchuk is a true example of a person who wants more and isn’t going to stop after achieving one achievement in his life. The hunger for achieving everything and being on top is what makes Vaynerchuk work harder, even when he’s at the top and could just slack like others.

Vaynerchuk’s talks and motivational speeches have shown how much he has struggled in his own life to reach the top. To achieve success in life, Vaynerchuk worked a lot and kept on trying even after failing.

Opening and working in all different businesses led him to achieve success, not just in one zone but in different sectors. Vaynerchuk has motivated many other people in his life and by his speeches so that they can achieve success by working hard and work even when they have a small or big achievement in life to stay on top at all times.

Gary Vaynerchuk believes success can be achieved by following some pointers. Some of them are:

  1. Value patience- Patience is a very virtuous trait. Nobody becomes successful overnight. You will have to work hard and remain patient for a long time in your life, so to reach success.
  2. Age has nothing to do with ability- Till the time you work hard and are determined to stay on top, there’s no power in this world that can stop you from being on top. Whatever be your age, your talent will take you to places and ensure you stay on top, not your age.
  3. Prioritize your happiness- Give without expectations. Being selfish is the gateway to selflessness. This will help you to take care of your personal needs first and then help others. So, that you can truly help others.
  4. Value the perspective you bring to the table- Opinion of others about you does matter, but equally, your opinion about yourself matters as well. Keeping others above you is the single biggest mistake that you can make and it’ll make it hard for you to find happiness & confidence in who you are. Have respect for yourself.
  5. Have an open-door policy- Ideas can come from anywhere and from anyone in your team. Respect and make judgments from everyone in your team, as you never know which idea can help you to succeed. Respect others and their idea, to build a positive work environment and good chemistry amongst your peers and teammates.


Overall, staying on top is always tough and difficult. Examples of Neil Patel, Simon Sinek & Gary Vaynerchuk show that to reach the top with full success and popularity, it’s very important to constantly work hard and stay on top of your work. Furthermore, it shows that to strive to be on top and be successful, it’s very important to fail and keep trying as it’ll teach you to stay humble and work harder than before as well. Be motivated and work harder, that’ll ensure you’ll reach success for sure. Go for it.
