Gary Vaynerchuk Vs Grant Cardone Vs Tai Lopez

Published

on

These three gentlemen get compared a lot against each other. In this post, I’m going to describe each one of them and tell you why you can’t compare them to each other. All three of them are not normal, and that scares the crap out of normal people.

Who wants to be normal and get normal results? Not me that’s for sure, and I’m guessing you are the same. Each of these guys brings something different to the world that we haven’t seen before. All three of them are overly passionate and unique characters in their own right.

They’re probably three of the most judged people online right now. They say things that make you think twice and question everything you’ve ever known. They’re confusing a lot of the time in the most beautiful way.

Each of them has skyrocketed towards success because they have used the online channel well, by telling their own message in a simplistic way that everyone can understand. They’re not like the Ph.D. scientists of the previous generation who had lots of valuable things to say but couldn’t convey it in a way that humans can understand.

These prehistoric messages were about saying something using the biggest words possible to inflate your ego and make yourself sound smarter and superior to everyone else. These models of the world are dead. Simple, authentic, beautiful, aggressive, raw, and uncensored is the new way.

Clark Kent (Tai Lopez) – The Self Help Guy

Tai is very well poised and he is not as over the top as the other two in the way he speaks. That’s why he reminds me of Clark Kent because he’s like Superman before he changes into his costume, and runs around saving the world. Tai’s glasses look exactly like Clark Kent’s too….lol.

Don’t take this unsuspecting man as a nobody. If you have watched his 67 Steps program or seen any of his YouTube ads like I have (what’s the deal YouTube showing me his ads five times a day), you’ll see that he loves to show his amazing house, car collection, and book collection.

He doesn’t do this to show off, though, he does it so he can show us all what is possible. Tai looks like he may just be some wannabe internet guy until you hear him talk in-depth about a topic. In his 67 Steps program, the knowledge and wisdom he shares will literally knock you off your freaking seat.

This knowledge doesn’t come from nowhere, and Tai is happy to admit that; the knowledge comes from all the books he has read that you can see behind him in a lot of his videos. You literally can’t walk through some parts of his house without falling over all of his books.

He’s like a walking talking book quote guy. He can remember even the most difficult quotes to memorize. Tai’s fundamental lesson that we all need to learn is that you have to deserve your success. We all want success but do we deserve it? I don’t think we do most of the time.

We haven’t grinded our way through the daily hustle and overcame the challenges that winners do. Tai can easily look like a con man and in fact, if you Google his name you will see a bunch of bad press about him saying that he started a sugar daddy website, hires model girls for his videos, and rents his cars.

Once you get past these superficial statements which may or may not be partly true, you get to gain access to what Tai has to offer. Tai is like Tim Ferris; they’re both new age versions of Oprah Winfrey in so many ways.

His words are carefully chosen and haunting. The things he talks about are very different to anything else you’ve heard, which scares the hell out of normal people living a mediocre life, who have nothing better to do than troll him.

While I haven’t met him personally, I know two people that know him well and they assure me he’s more real than freaking Santa Clause on Christmas Eve coming down your chimney and drinking your eggnog.

Yosemite Sam (Grant Cardone) – The Entrepreneur

Grant has one of those wild cowboy accents that I wish I had. At the end of last year, I was hanging out with a few friends in Perth, and we were literally pissing ourselves for hours over some of his jokes, and the way he expresses them.

Don’t be fooled though as Grant is no joker. He’ll rip your face off when it comes to business, and he’s one of the most aggressive entrepreneurs of the modern age. He has no interest in what you or your mamma thinks of him.

Grant says a lot of wild things, especially his video about buying a jet instead of renting one. If you analyze what he’s saying, his business knowledge is incredibly profound. He uses his over the top character to build rapport with audiences all around the world, and he sure doesn’t need the money – he does it because he can.

What makes Grant the entrepreneur to watch is his understanding of sales. Many entrepreneurs forget that you can’t just build the next awesome tech startup, and then walk around like Mark Zuckerberg in the same jeans and t-shirt for the rest of your life. You actually have to sell stuff.

Grant did the hard yards selling cars and then working for a media corporation. He combined the skills of marketing and sales to accelerate his many entrepreneurial endeavors. He’s another one of those guys that will massively break you out of your comfort zone and challenge your thinking.

His reality TV show that was on a while back blew my mind. The show was designed to do one thing and one thing only: make you understand that you have to work harder than anyone else.

“You have to be able to face rejection, get hit in the face with a meat pie, and then get back up again without crying like a little baby who hasn’t had their milk”

Grants the real deal and you should never forget that. Don’t mistake his wild persona for something it’s not. He has a message, and you need to listen to it.

Gary Vaynerchuk – The Social Media Strategist

There’s no comparing Gary Vaynerchuk with anyone. He’s a character in his own right but reminds me a little of Danny Devito in one of his explosive parts in a movie when he loses the plot. Gary has redefined what the voice of social media sounds like.

He has no problem calling out fake entrepreneurs and people who are not authentic. He started out as a social media guy, but he’s almost turned into a personal development mogul like Tony Robbins. He’s learning how the way we think has more to do with our success than the social media strategy or business plan we may be trying to execute on.

Deep down, he’s a beautiful human being that greatly cares for people and wants to help wake them up from the nightmare of a life they’ve been living. He’s bold because he knows that’s the only way people will listen.

Getting people out of their own paradox of defeating thoughts is so hard, but Gary get’s it. On my own personal iPhone lock screen I have one of his famous quotes: “It Begins And Ends With You.” After a difficult day, I look at my phone and remember that instead of blaming the world for my often-difficult problems, I should remember that it is me that creates this world.

In Australia mate, Gary Vaynerchuk is a cat. Cat is Aussie slang for a cool guy. It’s not used very often, and so I think it suits Gary to a tee.

Which of these three guys do you think is number one? Whose advice is most valuable to you? Let me know on my website timdenning.net or my Facebook.

    Great write up. You ask, “which of these guys is number one?” I don’t think any one of these guys are better than the other. I believe they are each the BEST at what they do! Each has value to contribute at different levels and in different areas to all who come across their work.

    All in all, great info…thanks for pulling this together Tim.

      Nate thanks for your thoughts. Everyone like a different one of the three depending on who they are. Sometimes it even depends on what day you think about it and how you are feeling at that time. Thanks for reading!

    Great article as always Tim. Your analysis is absolutely spot on in terms of the value each of these men bring to the table. It’s no surprise that despite their individual styles and subject expertise, they all have one thing in common. They are 100% hustlers, unashamedly unapologetic in their drive to be the absolute best there is out there. That’s the lesson everyone should learn.
