“I’m scared because I know exactly what happens this month every year. Every year for the rest of time, or actually not the rest of time. Hopefully this will end soon, but I’m scared. I’m scared because I know that there is so many of you that graduate this month and have no idea what you want to do. And that’s okay. Most people don’t. You should not be stressed about that. I’m actually not scared about that. I’m scared that you don’t realize that you’re entering the greatest five-year window of your life. If you are 22 years old and graduating from college, shit, if you’re 22 years old and not graduating from college, if you are 22 years old, you are entering, first of all, some of the greatest years of your life, A, but B, this this is the moment. Watch this video twice. If mama’s watching this, send this to your daughter Sally right now because you have to understand, this next five-year window is when you don’t go practical and safe. This is not the time to get the job mom wanted you to. This is not the time to try to maximize as much money, this is the time to realize that you have a five-year window and it’s three for some, it’s eight for others. But there’s a five-year window for you to attack the life that you want to win not because it’s the secret or because the world chose them because it’shard as shit out there. As a matter of fact, I’m probably more scared about your naivete to how hard. Class is easy, right? What you’ve been doing for the last 16 years is easy. It’s a bullshit game. It’s structured. It’s easy. The world, this thing, this thing is hard. However, that contradicts what I’m gonna tell you right now, which is this is the best and easiest five years of your life because this is when you need to attack what you love and what you want to do. Here’s why. You don’t have all the baggage. You may have college loans. Respect, that’s hard as shit. You may have the expectations of your parents. Mentally hard, fake hard. You may have a lot of other things, but this is exactly when you can live with four roommates in a basement and eat fast food. Do you understand? This is not when the baby’s there. Some of you have babies. This is not when you’ve been married and you promised. This is not when the world has sucked out all your dreams and hopes yet. You still got this window. And yet, so many of you are so hungry for short term, short term gains, like maximizing the job that paid you $3,000 more, but it’s not as fun, but you want that $3,000. For what? For what? For a new iPhone? For what? You get to live life one time. And this is the time right now to understand what’s actually happening and actually map your behavior to something that will impact you for the next 80 years. So, promise me promise me all you youngsters that are watching this right now, in the comments, ’cause I’ll jump in and talk to you, promise me that you understand that the land grab of happiness starts right now. That you don’t have to worry about getting that job, what you should do is go and travel and learn. Go and start that business that you’ve always wanted. This is the time to be massively risk, massively risk oriented. I know that this is when you’re supposed to grow up and go see the world. But guess what? The world isn’t what mommy and daddy told you. The world is exactly going to be what it’s going to be with or without the way you thought it was going to be. A ton of shit is gonna change. The world changes every God-damn day. Right now, what you need to recognize is you can afford to. It’s practicality. When you are in your early 20s, this is when you can grind at your highest levels ’cause there isn’t all the baggage, but boy, if you’re lucky enough to be graduating today, with no idea of what you’re going to do with your future, nobody’s ever been luckier than you.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
