I have had a major revelation, and it is going to shock you when you know what it is. This is for all of you working trying to figure things out. This thing is major. It’s a monster.
No, I’m not running for president, that would be a decision, not a realization.
Are you ready?
Here’s the realization. Ladies and gentlemen, as I was doing some social media stuff recently, looking around, poking around on Instagram, I just finally realized that NOBODY, including myself, really knows what they are doing with any of this stuff. Nobody.
90% of the time in my life I don’t really know what I’m doing. Now there’s 10% of my life when I’m buying real estate, when I’m talking about sales, closing, marketing, promotion—I know that stuff cold, inside and out. I know a sales cycle better than anyone else on the planet. I know how to write a book, how to be a good father, and how to be a good husband.
Yet 90% of the time I’m dealing in spaces, and you are also, doing stuff that we just don’t know anything about yet. Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, videos, getting stuff out and disseminating our brand and whatever else is coming out right now that I don’t even know to talk about because I can’t research everything.
Don’t worry about it if you don’t know what you are doing most of the time. Don’t worry about it—but do it anyway. Do stuff until you figure it out. All these people that are saying they know the way, but things are changing so fast right now nobody knows 100%.
Commit first, figure the rest out later.
You can learn by doing. So be the person that does doing better than anybody else. Just do and do and do, and observe until you realize what things work and what things don’t. Start doing things frequently enough until you figure it out.
I want to give you inspiration each day. People look at me and think I’m suppose to know everything, that I’m supposed to be the pro and the guru guy, and that there’s just a handful of us leading the way. Nobody knows what they are doing folks. So instead of feeling bad, take action.
Find that greatness within you, it doesn’t matter how many troubles or problems you have in your life right now, how down and out you are and how little money you have, we’re all figuring it out.
Speaking of people trying to figure things out, check out Season 2 of my hit reality series Whatever It Takes: The Ultimate Job Interview where I search for new talent to work at my office in Miami Beach. This is the most explosive reality TV show on air.
