I CAN, I WILL, I MUST – The Most Powerful Motivational Videos for Success, Students & Working Out
So you gotta do me a huge favor,
you gotta do me a huge favor. You gotta
get to the point where you don’t need a
car anymore, you don’t need a house
anymore, you’re don’t need to be pushed by
your dreams, your why is gonna push you,
your spouse is gonna push you, your child
is gonna push you, the need to get better
is going to push you because you’re
closer than your ever going to be. It’s
gonna push you. You don’t need anything
to push you. Your goas are gonna push
you, your dreams are gonna push you, the
opportunity of a lifetime that happens
in this particular time-frame is gonna
push you. It’s gonna drive you, it’s going
to make you better. So do me a favor as I
leave, as I leave, you can’t be average
anymore. 70% you can’t do it.
You can’t do it and have what you want, you
can’t give me 70 and be what you want
you can’t give me 70 and do what you
want, you can’t be average anymore, you
can’t be good anymore. 80 percent you
can’t be good anymore, 80 percent and
have what you want. You can’t be good at
something and have everything you
dreamed of to make your dreams be come real
to no longer dream about but walk in
them, you can’t. 90 percent you can be
good, you can be good, you can be great but
you still won’t get it all. I’m telling you, when you become phenomenal there’s nothing you can’t have,
nothing you can’t do, nothing you can’t
be and I just- I believe that you’re in
this room right now, I believe that we are in
the same space right now, I believe we’re
all in this place together listen to me
I believe that we’re all in this place
together because all of us, all of us
ain’t average. None of us want to be good
and for those of us who reach greatness we have a desire to push past greatness and see what phenomenal
looks like so I need everybody in the room when you
think about your goal and you think
about your dream, I need you understand
as I said to my wife in that hospital
room, I can. I will. I must. I need
everybody to say it with me, I can, I will, I
must. Come on I can I will I must, again I
can I will I must. Now, now for those of
you, you want it all, every single dream
every single goal as I say it for those
of you who really want it, you- you’re
going to say it and you’re gonna
stand and you’re gonna say it like you
mean it. I can I will I must come on I
can I will I must come on I can I will
I must now say it like you mean it
I can I will I must. Again! I can I will
I must. Again. I can I will I must. Now I
need you to think about that loved one
that- that- that- that individual that you
have to do this for. I need you to say it with
me. I can I will I must come on for that
individual I can I will I must for that
person I can I will I must for that
thing you want to accomplish I can I
will I must again I can I will I must. Now I
want you to think about that hurdle. I
want you to think about that thing that
keeps pressing you down. I want you to
think about that- that mountain that’s
hard to climb. I want you to think about
that thing that you just can’t seem to
get over. We’re gonna get over it today
we’re gonna get over it, we’re gonna get
over it together.
I can I will I must. We’re gonna add to it I
can get over it, I will get over it
I must get over it. Ready I can get over it
I will get over it I must get over it. Come on come on I
can get over it I will get over it I
I must get over it. I know something about
you. I know you’re not a quitter, I know
you’re a survivor, I know you’re a
survivor, you’re watching me right now, I
know something about you. You are a
survivor so I want you to get off this I
want you to cut it off, I want you to go
in the mirror and I want you to make the
rest of your life, the best of your life.
I can I will I must it’s your boy ET.
I don’t care what you’ve been through. I
don’t care who you are. I don’t care
where you came from. I don’t care what
your past is like, I don’t care what your
stress is like, I don’t care what stress
you’re under, I don’t care what problems
you have right now, I don’t care what you
don’t have right now, all I care about is
what your mindset is like in terms of
today and your future. Are you going to
make today count? Because that’s all you
can control and that’s all that matters.
It doesn’t matter where you start guys
it doesn’t matter what talents you’re
born with. It’s about where you finish
and this race isn’t over. It’s not over.
You can still come in first in the
marathon but you got to start today. You
got to start now. You have everything, you
have everything you need is inside you.
It doesn’t matter what you don’t have
now because you can go get it but it
starts today. It starts with a commitment
it starts with the principle, it starts with
the discipline, it starts with effort, it
starts with energy, it starts with an
idea that you’re gonna make today count
and a lot of people want to know what my
routine is like. Well, it’s predicated on
that idea – that I’m going to make today
count and that means that before
everyone is up, I’m going to have entered
a peak state already.
I’m here to help you but you have to
help yourself. No one’s going to do it
for you in terms of the action but you
got to say something with me. “I’m going
to make this thing work. I’m going to
live out my dreams. I’m going to live out
my purpose, I’m going to be who I was
destined to be, I’m going to fulfill all
of the tasks necessary to live out that
purpose, to become who I really want to
be. Not be who I am shackled by in the
past, not live in a world of constraint.”
I didn’t come this far to only come this far.
I hear some people saying things like:
“When I make it”, “When I get to the top”… “I’ll keep working hard until i get to
the top”, “until I reach my goal”.
Let me tell you something: There is no “END”!
WINNERS NEVER STOP.
If you reach your GOAL: SET A BIGGER GOAL.
If you get to the top of the mountain: Find a bigger mountain!
It’s the journey. The continued pursuit of growth.
The constant seeking of improvement.
That’s what makes life great.
That’s what makes a fulfilled life.
I didn’t come this far to only come this far!
When I get this GOAL: I’ll seek MORE. Not more things. MORE GROWTH.
Constantly pushing myself to be better.
I didn’t come this far to only come this far!
I came this far so I could be strong enough to go further!
So I would be good enough to push myself harder!
I’m only getting started. This is just the beginning.
I AM proud of my achievements, but that doesn’t mean I’ll settle for them.
PROUD but NEVER SATISFIED. PROUD but FOREVER HUNGRY. PROUD and ALWAYS READY.
PROUD but PUSHING. PUSHING FOR MORE. PUSHING FOR GREAT.
A true winner doesn’t seek only the title. A true winner seeks GROWTH.
A true winner seeks GREATNESS.
It’s the JOURNEY. It’s the CHALLENGE. Don’t tell me it’s over.
I’M JUST GETTING WARMED UP!
If the journey wasn’t challenging, the destination wouldn’t be rewarding.
t’s the challenge that makes the greatness.
You can’t have a champion athlete without
great competitors pushing them all the way.
You can’t have the greatest of all
time without champions pushing them all the way. It’s the journey. The process, that makes the greatness.
If you reach your GOAL: SET A BIGGER GOAL.
If you get to the top of the mountain:
Find a bigger mountain!
Winners, the difference between them and
the spectators is the winners have a
belief that overrides the crowds
disbelief every single time. Their belief
is so strong, even though they hit
failure they get knocked on their ass
find the intentional force me to stand back up again, face that same challenge, learning from
the previous mistakes and make
You come in here headstrong for this work
out, it’s going to take everything. This is
madness, this is, this is a super psycho workout but if you have it up here, and you go through
it out there guys, you will leave here not only physically dominating, but mentally
It all starts today,
if you’re ready to transform.
You must believe in yourself enough to
be the person now of what others
remember you for later. You know, a lot of
people don’t know that. They say, I do, they
put the effort in, because they want to
change right, they put all this effort in,
to do, you know what they think is right,
but they haven’t done the back research
preparing it, to make sure their effort
is of accordance of where they want to go
in life so they end up just doing random
they put, they’re dumb and random then because
they don’t even know what they’re really
doing because they haven’t studied it, they haven’t
prepared for it and when you fail to
prepare, you basically are preparing to fail.
It’s not about how you can look in the
mirror, it’s how you feel right now, that
and you feel right today.
You feel alive, man and you’re actually doing something, you’re making a difference in your life that fuels the
fire, be headstrong, believing in what you’re
doing no matter what the disbelief’s of the
third parties, the rejected losers there are out
there. I had to crawl my way to get to
the first cover, I had to lie, I had to
break all the rules.
Shoulder, triceps, superset. Super madness, man. This workout is going to take
everything you have. Come in here ready,
mentally ready, headstrong because that’s how you
have to be mentally tough up here. If you guys mentally believe you can do it, your body
will find a way physically to make it happen. If you’re short up here, it doesn’t matter
what you do with these guys,
it will never materialize into anything, no
dream will ever become reality. This is just a rant. Very simple. And something that I want you
to pass on or watch every Monday morning because the level of complaining is unacceptable.
Look, what if I told you this was the last Monday morning of your life? What if I told you you’d
die this week? Would you complain about your crap job? I doubt it. You’d go much higher level thinking.
We are living in a world where there is so much more opportunity; I just don’t get
the mentality of being head down sad.
Please take a step back and think about
how awesome it actually is and then
recognize that you can attack the world
in a totally different way cause you were
lucky enough to be born during this era.
400 trillion to one. When you understand that math, how can’t you live your life. That’s how rare it is to be a human
being. Now, what are you waiting for?
We are not catching up in our actions to
our ambitions and what it leads to is a
whole lot of complaining. Of course it’s
supposed to be hard. People are like Gary
it’s so hard no shit you want to make
millions of dollars and live your
perfect life, why should that be easy? You
can live on six hours sleep so you have
18 hours, you have 18 goddamn hours, I want
to know what you’re doing with your 18
hours cause you can work your 9:00 to 5:00
and that’s nine and you can travel for
an hour here and there, respect nice
little solid commute, oh you want to be a
Mazel Tov. You can spend two hours with
your kids. What are you doing with those
other five hours?
You’re watching House of Cards, you’re
playing Madden, you’re relaxing from the
other intense ten, Gary I already spent
11 hours. Well great. Then don’t complain
or want more. Respect that by getting
rest and this and that, you were giving
up opportunity to go into a new work- you
want the audacity to have a 1% life.
Let’s call it what it is. You want to live
as well as the 1 to 2% in the world it’s
not very complicated the math is very raw
like you if you want to have
one of the best lives in the world which
is, you live on your terms, you have
to pay your dues to get there. Let me
promise you something I know tens of
thousands of people and I know thousands of
people extremely well, I know hundreds of
people deeply well. There is no
correlation between how much money
someone makes and their level of
happiness but what’s not being talked
about is the friends and acquaintances I
have who have committed suicide in the
entrepreneurial land in the last four years
because nobody talks about the downside.
Everybody thinks they’re gonna be Zucks
everybody thinks they’re gonna build
Snapchat. Go look at the data
the data shows that the bar majority of
this room will not succeed, not even
close to building an actual business and
I don’t come here to be somber. I come
here to remind you that there’s only one
thing you can do. The only thing you can
do that can trump the moment mommy and
daddy had sex to make you, the only thing
that can trump that, the only thing that
can trump your DNA, the only thing that
is controllable, if you want it, if you
want this, it’s work. Who’s in it cuz
they’re in it and who’s in it cuz it’s
the trend and let’s not get it twisted
it’s easy you can say you’re a rapper or
an athlete but you can easily see that
you’re not. Entrepreneurship is hidden
entrepreneurship is kind of like you say
it on your gram account and then you
kind of can look the part, you can go to
the parties, you can go to the
conference’s like you can trick it way
more right then a lot of other things
and- and so I’m saying this very
carefully listen to me if you know deep
down that you’re being exposed by this
rant here’s a smart move before the
world collapses go figure out who you
think is actually gonna survive that, who
are the wartime generals. Let me remind a
lot of you the 84th employee at Facebook
is gonna make much more money than the
founder of almost every company that’s
gonna be invented over the next five
decades so the one advantage is the
access to these winners that you’ve
never seen before so if you are
listening right now and said Gary like I
got this, I’m gonna do it, then do it.
Stick it to my face. I can’t wait to get
the email from you five, six, seven, eight
years from now. But if
you’re listening and saying it’s true
cuz I wasn’t into being a businessman or
woman when I was a junior in high school
right I was gonna be this, I was gonna be
an architect, I was gonna go to Harvard, I
was gonna be a banker, if that’s you give
a real thought to this because we’ve
seen this in 2001 and 2008 shit is very
ugly and it’s a ten year, seven year, five
step back or you could take advantage of
the window we’re in right now and take
advantage of the fruitful times and the
access to these A plus generals and I
would jump on those boats if I were you
and if you’re fortunate enough to be
here today, to know to be here today, to
afford to be here today
you are sitting in an incredible
spot of the seven point seven billion
people on earth and I just don’t
understand why you wouldn’t take full
advantage of it and it starts with
something very basic which is actually
start understanding how this is all
working, deeper not wider. You don’t need
to know in theory how AI and Alexa
voice and VR and social media work, you
need to start understanding how one of
those things works deeply. I’ve gotten
here today because I didn’t come to
conferences and talk or make videos or
build a personal brand for the first 15
years of my career. Let me remind many of
you long before I was ‘Gary Vee,’ I was
Gary Vaynerchuk building a liquor store
by being good at email marketing, at
Google AdWords, at banner retargeting, at
YouTube marketing, I was a practitioner
and then once I built something from 0
to 60 mill or 3 to 60 million with no money,
once I built something then I had a
little audacity to come and talk to you
about how I did it. The amount of 23 year
old business coaches and marketing gurus
who haven’t done it in their life that’s
out there on Instagram right now is
startling. It is time to do and less
talking and more doing.
This is a matter of life and
death. I don’t know who told y’all. I
don’t know who told y’all this was about
math, this is about English, this is about
science, right y’all thinking why do I
need math to blow up? Why do I need English
to blow up? Look this is not about, this
is not about what you think it is.
This is life and death. School is about
setting a foundation. Are you hear what
I’m telling you? I need you to try. I need
you to try to read every single word. If
you don’t know it, write it down, look it
up. I need you to try to do every single
assignment. I need you to try to go to
every single class, I just need you to
try because I know something about you. I
know something about you. I know when you
put forth 120 percent effort it ain’t
nothing you can’t do. It ain’t nothing
you can’t accomplish. I don’t want you to
live to die anymore. I want you to die to
live because I know if you try, I know if
you put forth 120
percent effort it ain’t nothing you
can’t do but live in a world of freedom
and that’s yours to have. That’s a choice
that you can make. That’s a decision that
you can follow through on, that you can
carry out, you gotta wanna make this
thing work for you. You gotta make today
count. What are you doing with your time?
Are you wasting it, are you going to make
today count because it’s precious or are
you gonna let it just slip away?
Let it fade? You need to be in a peak
state at all times. That’s gonna be predicated on your will, your intensity
your integrity, your character, your
energy, your effort, to get what you want
out of this life. It’s on you.
It’s hard to put the effort in
to create greatness, but it’s a lot
harder to accept the reality that you
could have been great.
I want you to know something, that the
bigger your dream is, I want you
understand the heart of the grind.
Listen to me- luck is for leprechauns and
you ain’t green. Luck is for leprechauns
and you’re not green.
I’m gonna say it again. Luck is for
leprechauns and you’re not green. What I
am Telling You is that if you’re willing
to go beast mode, you can have whatever
you want. I’m a living example. You can
start from nothing, start from nothing
you know the story.
Mom was a teenage mom, start with
nothing. Grandma had 14 kids, start with
nothing, two bedroom house, one bathroom
mom got kicked out because she had me
start with nothing. Start with nothing
high school dropout, start with nothing
homeless, twelve years to get a four-year
degree from the University, start with
nothing. If you are willing to grind.. I
believe effort and you’ve heard me say
it. You might come from priv- you might
have a father that can give you
everything your little heart desires but
you will not outwork me.
Listen to me: I told you, I told you, I
told you, I want you to think about those
goals. I want you to taste them. I want
you to- I want you to be- I want you to
internalize it. I’m not asking you to
tell me what your goals are because I’m
interested hearing everybody will-
I couldn’t- I couldn’t possibly do
anything with it. Listen, this is
what I’m telling you. I’m telling you to dream
your dream because I want you
to feel it, I want you to taste it
I want you to know how close, I want you
just like when the weather is changing
you can feel it. I want you to be able to
feel when you’re getting closer to it
and closer to it but more importantly I
want you to know when you dream your
dream that there are other people who
are dreaming the exact same dream. You
might be the ant and the ant has very
little but he’s determined, he’s strong
he has a dream and a goal and he’ll do
whatever it takes and I need you to
understand that the bigger your dream is,
the earlier you will have to get up. The
bigger your dream is, the earlier you will
have to get up, the longer you gonna
have to stay up, the bigger your dream is
the more effort you gonna have to put in
and for those of you who raise your
hand and put up 70%, you’ll never see it.
You’ll never see it for those of you who
are 70%, 70% beast mode, 30% gazelle.
When you said to yourself when the ball
comes out, this is what I want to
accomplish, you’re not the only person
that wants to accomplish it and now I
ask you this question. What do you do
when a thousand other people want
exactly what you want? What do you do
when you’re not the only one that wants
to make a million dollars a year company
you’re not the only one that wants to be
the president, you’re not the only one
that wants to be a CEO, what if you’re
not the only one that wants what you
want, what if there are thousands of
other people who want what you want? You
have to outwork them.
You gotta out-grind them, you got to get up
earlier, you got to stay up later
you’ve got to execute and you’ve got to
go from 70 to 120.
No excuses guys I wish I could- I wish
you could pay me a thousand dollars
today and I could tell you 70% is enough. I
wish you could pay me 15 I wish you
could pay me 1500 but it’s not gonna
You’re thinking- you’re thinking- I want
you to get it out your system, you’re
thinking I’m gonna work hard for 10
years then I’ll relax and if that’s what
you’re thinking, this ain’t for you.
