success or excuses

My buddy, and fellow Beachbody Coach, Chris Balmert absolutely nails it with this video about some real life excuses he’s heard from people on why they can’t get started working towards their goals. At the end of the day, you have to choose whether you’re willing to put in the work to get what you want or you’re okay just giving an excuse. You just have to ask yourself if your future, your dream, is worth an excuse?

The Gary Vee Twitter Hustle I Used to Build my Business

The Gary Vee Twitter Hustle

So I got a quick tip for you today and it’s one that I’ve been using for a really long time but I think it’s always important to give credit where credit is due. I consider myself the ultimate student when it comes to student of the game when it comes to business and productivity and getting ahead in areas, which is funny because as a former three-time college dropout, I used to have a belief system that I was a very bad student. I just realized I was in the wrong structure that the formal structure of school and college and the way the traditional world tells you that you’re supposed to learn, I didn’t fit into very well and so I was told, “Hey you’re a bad student.”

Dream Big, Act Small


Dream big, act small is my new mantra. What do I mean by it? I’m glad you asked. I’ve talked to thousands of people over the last 8 years as a Coach and I keep hearing how hard it is for them to hit their goals. Whether it’s a weight loss, training, or business development goal, it just stays out of their reach or they lose steam along the way. Naturally, my first question for them after hearing this is, “Well, what’s your goal?” and it’s some pie in the sky goal like losing 100 pounds, making a million dollars by 30, or owning a Ferrari.
