Adventure into the Unknown

Gary Vaynerchuck, CEO of VaynerMedia and Investor

This life is an adventure if you make it that way. I don’t believe we were put on this earth just to work, eat, sleep, and continue that cycle. The sad thing is that this might be the truth for a lot of individuals out there.


I want to make sure you know that this life is great and it is what you make it at the end of the day. Now, will there be challenges and defeat approaching you at every corner, uh hell yeah, but how you view that moment is everything. Most people would crumble and except defeat, but the few individuals out there would see a overcoming moment. At this moment they would see the light in the dark and they adrenaline rush pulsing through their blood to crush this overwhelming task or situation.

I am only 24, but I am wanting to build my own business and take media and video to the next level. Now does it scare the hell out of me at times to think about it, YES! But in those moments, when I feel that daunting feeling of not being good enough or doing enough, I have this alternative beast rumbling through my veins. This animal-like instinct is wanting to fight for what it wants and thats when the hungry and visionary entrepreneurs beat out the mediocre business life.

Once you have that hunger and drive to be the best, it is contagious to show other people and it can pass off onto them in their everyday life. I believe this is how some of the greatest groups of people throughout history have made a difference in this world for the better.

This video above I put in the article is a man that has spoke milestones to me in my life and I have never even met him. I see the way he does business and his outlook on life being greater than you could ever imagine. I wanted to put this in here because it goes along right with what I am talking about and he could explain it a lot better than I could.

After attaining this mindset though, then this life can be the most exciting adventure possible to any being out there. Adventure is not sunshine and rainbows but up’s and down’s throughout life. The best moment though is when you get to where you want to be and you look back in the past and see what all you have gone through to get to that point and it is a satisfying and grateful reason you will never lose sight of.
