Comparing Yourself Is Driven By Insecurity

Comparing Yourself Is Driven By Insecurity

This video comes from a meet and greet Gary did at a Jets game during summer 2018. Watch the rest of the meetup in DailyVee 484 on his main channel here:

Gary often talks about how people are trying to keep up with the joneses and it hurts them from actually achieving the things they are aspiring towards. One follower asked Gary for a deeper explanation on what “keeping up with the Joneses” really means based on a recent piece of content Gary had recently made.

  1. Sorry, I didn’t get it. Who are the Jonesses they are talking about? What is this about? I just clicked on this video & tried to listen but I didn’t understand what they were talking about the Jonesses… can somebody explain. Thanks!

  2. wtf happened here, its the first video i didn’t understand 😭😭? who the fuck is joanes’s?

  3. This video is so much better that it takes place at a Jets tailgate. Gary had to be so pumped. Like a pump up speech for the game almost

  4. Love the fact that Gary knows how to explain his thoughts.

  5. it's so funny! I had a love hate relationship with Gary, I love his content but some times it's not in alignment with me. I've been consuming his stuff more so these days and I tell you, I can really seen his growth over the past 5 years. I really appreciate his stuff. its really helping me.

  6. Completely, anyone who compares their live to someone else is just so insecure. He mentioned so many things right there most people won’t get it. Insecure people are the worst. Absolute worst.

  7. background music: whenever feat. conor maynard

  8. some have Michael Jordan as their inspiration, some have Gronk, ill say mine is Gary Vaynerchuk!
    Love you man you're an inspiration!

  9. That line he said about "kids trying to make money off of everybody by the perception of even making It"
    I don't get it
    Can someone explain what the last part is supposed to mean?

  10. When people can debate disagreements and both still win in the end, that’s awesome

  11. make all those en devours happen, except the one that wants to spite me. They might be used to artificial loyalty brought by by artificial importance.

  12. Magenta riddim in background

  13. Whether his opinion was right or wrong. Was glad to see this brother question and disagree. Sometimes we think because someone has "made it", that they know everything. And that's not true. You should always feel you can question and debate.

  14. I'm not thinking or talking about the Joneses cause the Joneses are thinking or talking about me. That's a huge problem with people. they focus on people or things that don't matter or make their lives better. Everyone seems to want attention from somebody who doesn't even care about them or serves them any purpose. While you're thinking or talking about an individual, they're probably not even thinking about you in anyway.

  15. ppl at background: "who dafuq is dis dude?!"

  16. This black guy doesnt understand the concept of the phrase. What a waste of Gary's time.

  17. So this guy didn't even know what 'keeping up with the Jones's ' meant. Hahhaha

  18. chomp chomp chomp, Tanya if were sneak in garys video and eat with my mouth open and we will go viral AF!

  19. Where's the Jamaican restaurant? I want to try it!

  20. … And that lady in the back went on to become to CEO of YouTube

  21. The MACRO! That's what matters

  22. Gary is so real man, told that guy he’d go to his restaurant and he just met him. Need more people like that in this world 💪🏽

  23. 200 dollars on clothes, that's how much I spent in 2018, this year in July I'm at about 80 dollars. I really really don't give a duck about what the Joneses got , cause I'mma get mines. I got my head down, and working, taking risks and pushing my own comfort zone entrepreneurially. I already know that I'm gonna win in the long run. It's inevitable.

  24. Oh my God what a thumb nail. Want to steal it.

  25. I think the last part of the video was exceptional inspiring, excellent Gary.

  26. Nah, I’m in my own little dark world. And when I compete in anything I do my best, but I respect my opponents no matter what. Always happy of others success, hoping they’re doing well.

  27. I drive a beat up Honda. I’m not trying to impress the jones’s, I’m trying to get to a bigger neighborhood in a bigger house. The jonses lack perspective!

  28. Why must I be a slave to Public opinion?
    Must I keep up the joneses?
    Are there any law that makes you got to have what the joneses had?

  29. Thank you Gary for defining what "Keeping Up with the Joneses" means. Striving is not a bad thing but getting stuff to just impress others is ridiculous.

  30. RR

    Who the fuck are Joneses? I'm not native american speaking. Are they some typical family?

  31. that girl that eats at the back … WTF lol

  32. Gary. That was amazing of you. Gonna smoke my weed too buddy? Jk. Much love and positive vibes

  33. And insecurity is driven by self awareness of the level of skill and efficacy I'm at.

  34. This is awesome!! Just simple awareness!!! I'm on it !!!!💪💯✌

  35. Legend, your so polite and generous. The true winner 😉

  36. The smile on that Guy’s face when Gary said he would come and have dinner at his restaurant, lit me up inside. Legit happy 😊

  37. Love it, Gary is such a humanitarian. So so inspirational!

  38. Gary see your inboxes on Facebook club page :-))

  39. The girl behind their back is doing it right, eating food while watching Gary speak

  40. That girls are in Love with him

  41. That man did it right, he didn't ask Gary for money for his business, he was about to offer to load him with gifts.. Obviously that paid off.

    Most wholesome piece of content all day.

  42. "I would much rather, much rather everybody here look up to me by the way I treat other human beings, not by what I achieved professionally." – Love that line!

  43. Lmao Gary confused the fuck outta that guy 😂. Look at his eyes 👀 😂

  44. The first time I watched this I got, Gary wants people to stop flexing on these kids, second time watching it, I got, Gary is about the macro game so he doesn’t care about a thought on a singular piece of content
