  1. Thank you for showing those images and telling this story.That seriously shook me. I'm going to start including this on EVERY VIDEO I do on my FB business page. "That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too." W.H Murray

  2. The fact that Gary has to make every story, every piece of advice about himself or something that he does or thinks is really annoying. This barely felt like an interview at all, just another Gary V rant sesh. We know you know your shit Gary,,, let other people talk!!! King of Interruption.

  3. What a FUCKING. GREAT. EPISODE. Thank you Felix for that question, that shit's what I think about every time I watch a Gary video. God, Felix, if you're reading this, know that your goal of impacting people may have started right now. Gary wasn't bullshitting because he knows the power of this medium. I too struggle a lot with other people's opinions, maybe for other reasons different than yours but still, I just can't get the energy or the courage to open up and get these crippling thoughts that I know are stupid because I KNOW people don't actually care that much about my things, but I still can't get myself to open up about them. Thanks for asking that question and seeming so honest, it's a breath of fresh air to see honesty in Gary's content coming from the other side. And Gary, I feel so much what you say about opening up being liberating but for some reason I can't do it. Hope I get self aware enough to figure out why, or less scared of whatever to acknowledge that I am self aware enough and I just need to act on it, or careless enough to actually act on it without fear.

    Regarding Felix's question, I'd first like to point out that I think your level of self awareness is cool (might be biased because I think I'm self aware to those levels too). I have very little experience in impacting people but I've recently have had to kind of recruit members for a project I'm in and I think the response and feedback you get on one on encounters with not like super deep convo and shit but just like deploying interest (i'm kinda curious about everything by default so i don't struggle with that) goes a long way. You could maybe start with that, instead of trying to impact people and learning video for it, just try to make an impact in your everyday life, join a team of some sorts where you can handle the Public Relations part of it, or create that section if it doesn't exist in somewhere you're already involved with, you know, start small. Then if you're actually interested in photography and videography you'll either get another excuse to learn them, or your own tasks will kind of lead you to that learning path

  4. Holy shit 49:10 were you really addicted to all that and still became the person you are today? That is amazing, I'd love to hear how you turned it all around, where did your resolve come from?
