What About The Graduates?
I watched this video from Gary V the other day and it really hit me hard. I was the one he was the one he was talking about. I didn’t take risks when I was in my early 20’s. I went directly into a safe boring ass job that barely gets me by.
Watch the video:
Here are some text excerpts from this video for the hearing impaired – full credit to Gary V.
“I am so Scared. Scared that there are so many of you graduate this month and have don’t fucking idea what you want to do and that’s OK you should not be stressed about that. I’m actually not scared about that. I’m scared and you don’t realize that you’re entering the greatest 5 year window of your life if you are 22 years old and graduating from college it is you’re 22 years-old and not graduating from college if you are 22 years-old you’re entering some of the greatest years of your life but being this-this is your moment. Watch this video twice get your mama to watch this send this to your daughter Sally right now because you have to understand this next 5 year window is when you don’t go practical and safe this is not the time to get the job mom wanted you to this is not the time to try to maximize as much money so you can buy a fat whip. This is the time to realise that you’re in the 5 year window and its 3 for some and 8 for others. It’s a 5 year window for you to attack the life you want to live not because it’s the secret or because the world is so zen because it’s fucken hard as shit out there. I am more scared about your nativity because class is easy right when you been doing for the last 16 years is easy it’s a fucken bull shit game, it’s structured, it’s easy, what this thing this thing is hard however that contradicts what I’m going to tell you right now which is this is the best and easiest 5 years of your life because this would you need to attack what you love and what you want to do here is why you don’t have all the baggage. You ay have college loans respect it’s hard as shit you may have the expectations of your parents, mentally hard, fake hard, you may have a lot of other things but this is exactly when you can live with 4 roommates in a basement and fuckin fast food. Do you understand what I am saying?
The world hasn’t sucked out all your dreams and hopes out of you yet, you still got this window.
Love this clip. Thank you Gary V
It’s the kids these days, right? Make something of yourselves kids. Get out there. Do it. Do it for the right reasons.
