Book Talk: ​Crushing It!

I haven’t done this in a minute, probably because I haven’t read in a while. But I’m still on the same book. I know I should be done by now. But this book for me is really about learning and taking down life lessons that I can eventually use. Especially with my dreams and aspirations of creating a personal brand.

Anyways today’s lesson learned or more of an idea is creating more content for different platforms. With me, I have been creating content and spreading it to every social media platform I have. This is an idea I may try just to see if my fame sort to say or name gets a better buzz. The problem now is figuring out what to post. It’s somewhat hard to create great content without a second opinion on a certain post. So doing that across other platforms is going to be tricky. But I’ll figure out how to manage.

The tricky part about this is coming out that comfort zone as well. He mentions how he just goes for it and how it pays off for him later. Also how sometimes things don’t work out but eventually it does. That determination to fall and get back up. I know I lack that.

Fear of failure: This part of the book stands out the most. When he listed the excuses he hears on a daily I can say I was in the excuses. Especially when it came to the “I’m afraid I’ll get hate comments”.

Hate comments online don’t really bother me. It really depends on the people on the other end. My problem has always been dealing with the opinions of my loved ones. How he targets this and his advice on it is spectacular. Most relatable part of the book I have seen so far. Be back shortly with another, Book Talk.

Book Talk: Crushing It!

So I have been reading this //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=kexum-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=0062674676&asins=0062674676&linkId=7a1b3122bad945a07a03ba86d96bd58d&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffff” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Crushing It! By Gary Vaynerchuk and it’s simply amazing. I believe I brought this about a month ago but I’ve been reading it slowly. But every time I read it I just feel so motivated afterward. I initially brought this to learn about how people just like me got to where they are now. Plus I just love everything Gary Vee says. Every Instagram post he makes I just have to listen to the jewels he drops. Even when I’m writing I have his videos on YouTube playing in the background. Right now I’m only on chapter 2 at the time I’m writing this blog. It’s this one line that sticks out to me out of the million quotes dropped in this book.

“You need to constantly be in do mode. I see you out there over thinking your content and agonizing over your decisions, taking forever to make up your mind. Your confidence is low, and your worried people will call you a loser if you make the wrong call. Get over that quick.”

 I absolutely love those lines, because I can feel that so deeply inside. I have been struggling with my content for that exact reason. If you been reading my Weekly Thoughts you will know this Ep has been taking a toll on me. The book so far has included stories from other successful people who use the Crushing It guidelines to get where they are now.

 This book is definitely out of my reading range. I usually read urban fiction a lot but this book is my way of stepping out of my comfort zone. I look forward to finishing this book soon and looking for other books like this to read or just any other books. I really want to read a poetry book to get a feel. If you know any leave some in the comments below and I’ll make sure to check them out.
