Gary Vee always uses the word pumped, and though it's part of the English vernacular, it's not a major term on the level of terms such as dope, woke, or drip.

Gary's influence is growing by the day and I can see one day where everyone uses phrases using the word pumped the way Gary does.

I love watching Gary talk about being pumped: questioning whether people are pumped doing what they say they're pumped doing; speaking on how he would be pumped doing things most people would bemoan. I've been watching him being pumped and talking about being pumped for a while now. And yet, the first time I ever thought of this word... the way Gary uses it... came recently when I've been thinking of my upcoming visit to my parents'.

The sentiment of being pumped dug its claw into me and has become a part of me. When I think about staying at my parents, I'm pumped. Legitimately pumped. I've never felt this way about being at my parents. And I'm so pumped that I'm pumped to be chilling with my parents. It's not just a visit to the parents, it's sicko mode time. I'll be documenting my sicko mode time there for documentation purposes.

Lately, I'm just pumped. Pumped, man. Pumpman. Pumpman. Pumpman.

Yeah, Pumpman, Pumpman, I don't need no introduction
D-Roc and Babin on my production, wow!

Gary Vee -- Pumpman

ps : Gary Vee does not actually have a rap song called Pumpman. But I wish he did. 

Pumpman, Pumpman, Pumpman, them boys up to somethin'
They just spent like two or three weeks out the country
Them boys up to somethin', they just not just bluffin'

    @abrahamKim - Sir Abe.... could you tell us more about this trip to see your parents? I am more interested to hear about that... .Is it a routine? Why are you pumped? What is their take on rap music? What do you do when you spend time with them? A post about your sicko mode would be nice.

      Yes, you'll read about it as it'll probably be all I write about the next month.

      Not a routine. I've actually never just decided to go visit my parents for this length of a time. I did it because I've gotten a new perspective into my parents, and have grown from a son who's supposed to respect their parents to just a son who does respect them.

      They don't listen to rap lol and probably would find it tedious.

      @abrahamKim - Your parents definitely did something right.

      This right here is every parents dream.

      haha I just wish I could've shown them that they did something right a lot earlier.

    @abrahamKim If you browse the entrepreneur, motivation or startup subreddits, you often see posts about how Gary Vee is a charlatan, talks crap and just exists to spout the same "you just gotta take action" type stuff to make himself more money.
    I tend to dip in and out of him - he seems to come to me when I am in need of an arse-kicking and his content is inspiring and sometimes gets me "pumped". His message is consistent, but some people find him lacking substantive actionable steps, apart from ditching your family and friends because they are toxic!
    His style is just a bit too abrasive for some people to handle.

      @abrahamKim @twizzle I like Gary V in small doses. I can't listen to a full episode of his podcast in one sitting because it becomes annoying to me. I think Gary knows his audience and is authentic to them. Pumped is an old-school phrase. My older brothers use that phrase all the time. My version of the phrase is "fired up." The word Pumpman suggests something different to me...

      Hell yes. It's very easy to see why many find Gary this way. It's because he's always experimenting and people struggle to hold opposing ideas in their head at the same time.

      If you have time I think you would love this video (it's not gary) -- but it explores the idea of holding opposing ideas in one's head.


      Also, his message does contain actionable steps, just not steps people desire to action. Everyone wants to be the best version of themselves, but most don't want to take hte steps that lead there. lol.

      @abrahamKim Yes, I agree - he does have actionable steps - but most people ignore them. I guess people are looking to be told exactly what to do, step by step, having it laid out for them to follow. But he (Gary) knows that this is not easy to do considering the variety of opportunities out there for Entrepreneurs.
      He is more around getting the right "mindset".

      @abrahamKim @twizzle Could be that or could be the guys who don't need a pump but certainly do a lot of pumping.
