  1. I got a strong doubt that if I should follow this guy Gary's a very basic common sense to allow d guest to speak and express his views and shut down …he is just boasting abt himself and Wats d point of inviting a guest's d insult…had huge respect for him but not anymore

  2. To be hounest, my guard ia always up. The worth of the sport I am training is so small and that's what I am changing at the moment. It's herad course i always need to choose between ignoring the others to hold my focus and between seeing Tham and give props for what they are doing. Becourse if i am supporting other I their ideas they support me. I don't like to Juge. But I have to separate from the people with no goals, so I have to Juge. Bacourse you are the average of the 5 people you most spend time with.

  3. I interrupted my boss many times during meetings, lucky she didn’t mind but this is very bad habit I would like to change.
    If I had the success Gary has I would be a pain in the ass talking constantly just like him!!!

  4. Let it be known that REAL alphas and real leaders don’t ever talk about how alpha or they are or even call themselves leaders, they just are… akin to how Tom Brady doesn’t walk around saying I’m this I’m that he just is.. Gary is always bringing the story back to him and drawing similarities to HIS life, Simon doesn’t, see the difference, and I like Gary vee just being honest.

  5. Agreed, I love Simon and a huge fan, was kinda upset that I saw Simon with him. Gary just seems like a try hard, while Simon is genuine and actually cares about others thoughts

  6. I watched this video a year ago, didn't know who Gary was, but saw the TED talk by Simon and thought his insights into businesses were very insightful! I watched like 10 mins of this video and just couldn't stand Gary with how dominant he is during the interview.

    This time around, I watched the whole thing and I love it, Gary is just being his authentic self, he is loud, fast and explosive while Simon is the opposite. Sure Simon had to adjust himself to keep up but both got good space to get important points across to help all of us.

  7. I worked for 3 companies in a row where I was forced to have my guard on and I couldn't trust anyone.

    First, I was bullied several time at work (my fault never complaining to our Team Leader), and our Boss was someone who just won the lottery and had no real clue on how to run a Business.

    He just showed his face from time to time, so he wasn't trustworthy.

    Second one was working for my uncle, who unfortunately made false promises about the payments.

    This job wasn't even healthy for me.

    The third one, I couldn't trust the people o worked with.

    It was at this job where I started my way to become an entrepeneur so people laughed at me a lot.

    My Boss I have a splitter opinion, first one I respect him because he kinda understood me.

    Once he wanted from us to write a letter to him with our opinion about the company.

    What is good, what is bad and where we see ourselves in the next 5 years.

    I told him that I have dreams and goals I want to archive and realize so that probably I won't work for him anymore in 5 years.

    He loved the letter and we had a nice talk.

    But then, 6 month later, he asked me if I would work for his second company, and there I also was taken advantage.

    False promises and wrong payment.

    It was a 24/7 job, but at the end he told me that I had still the old contract (again my fault that I didn't made a new one) so I didn't received all the bonuses other people normally get.

    But finally I found a good company, in a retail Store.

    The store manager is also my Mentor, the first person who saw the real value in me and is the first time that I don't feel abused at work.

    In fact, she worries often about me when i work to much.

    And even the extra hours i do, she tells me that she is just the store manager and that i can't get more paid or I can't save those extra hours.

    I told her that I get paid with expe6and since then we got an awesome strong relationship.

    She can count on me everytime the company need someone and I can count on her and trust her.

    By the way she was the one who offered me that job and she knew that i will not work for her forever because o told her about my dreams.

    So yes, it is really important to find a job where people value us.

    It indeed makes a huge different

  8. When he says the test of someone when something is going wrong and when your true colors show what does that exactly mean? Could someone please elaborate on that thought?

  9. Who's watching in 2018???

    Still cringing seeing and hearing "by the way by the way by the way"
    But that's just Gary. So were seeing his natural self.

    AND! Were seeing who Simon is and he's walking his talk. He's listening and leading (he eats last).

    This vid brings out the best of each and I admire both

  10. Pffft, this could have been such an inspiring interview. Both have great visions and Gary says some really interesting things but they way he constantly interups Simon…ULG. Is this about Simon or about him? If you don't want to listen to what Simon has to say, don't invite him to the show!

  11. As a person who studies leadership I knew Simon first, going on a couple years. I just found Gary in the last 2 weeks and he has derailed my life because I watch too much of his

  12. Brilliant thoughts on self-awareness. I think I've just realised how much I DO NOT appreciate my other half when she sometimes tells me the painful truth about me – not to put me down but to make sure that I know…

  13. Oh wow… Simon saying that he won the internet lottery… how humble. I love hearing Gary talking about deploying positivity. Thank you Gary, another AMAZING episode!!!!

  14. Although they have a lot in common about their beliefs, Simon and Gary have a totaly diferent way to do the things work. I've been watching their videos and I love both of them, but know I have diferent purpose been built inside me with each one of them. With Garry, that I admire a lot for his hard work and motivational way to see the hardness of life, I'm inspired to do more, to understand the things not only through the datas, but through a better observation of the things that's going on in life, business, personal, etc. And Simon, that I admire a lot too, I'm inspired to be better, to know not just what I'm doing and how I'm doing, but WHY I'm doing the things I do.

    I'll never do my professional job as Gary do his one, but he made me understand that even I don't need to do this, if I know it I can be more in control about my goals and how I want my job to be done and reach the goals I want. At the same time I'm giving excuses for not doing because I couldn't find my WHY yet, Gary comes to put me back in the reality saying "do something and things will happen". He's right, cause at the same time I start doing something I found my WHY and now I can, at least but not less important, visualize what I want to do, how I want to do, why I want to do and I'm doing it now!

    Simon and Gary has a totaly diferent way to see the millennials in my point of view, but I thing both of them are right. Simon is worried about this generation and exposes a lot of characteristics of it and gave us a lot of clues about what we need to do to get out of this dangerous vicious circle. Gary believes a lot in the millennials and gives them motivation, putting them back together with our entire society showing what can we do and giving us inspiring strenght to do, calling our responsability.

    They are amazing! Both of them have been helped me a lot to understand the changings we're passing by nowadays. I'm from Brazil and we're a little bit out of context because we're late in so many aspects, but we can see this rain is not gonna stop now and it's getting worst, the storm is coming. I'm amazed with both of them. People that do. Congratulations for you guys… Gary and Simon! 😀

  15. Great to see 2 of my favourite inspirational characters with such contrasting personalities shooting the shit. About 5:08, Gary f*#ked up though – he should at least have had a copy of Simon's book on hand and been briefed about the content! But, I guess we all make mistakes – the key is to learn from them:-)
