I have ten goals that I read every single night before I go to bed and every single morning when I wake up.

Six of them expire in six months, and the other four expire in three years, five years, 10 years, and 20 years. I reset them every six months, and I never reach them. I only get 20 percent there, 30 percent there but at least I get closer to there because I’m WORKING at it.

Some people set goals, then complain when they never reach them even though they barely even tried.

I’ll say it again: It’s not enough to just visualize your goals. You’ve got to work at it every. single. day.

It doesn’t matter if it takes longer than you expected to hit a goal. The point is that you’re grinding and trying to hit it, and you’re reassessing and improving your strategy along the way. That’s the only way you will #RISE.

What’s one goal you’re working towards RIGHT NOW?

  • I believe it is human nature that if you have been blessed in life. You want to pass it on and help/work with others. 
Outside of Shark Tank I get pitched often by friends and strangers alike. Sometimes it is AMAZING ideas with AMAZING people that I want to work with. However, nothing is easy and real work always has to be applied in anything you do if you want it to be successful.
The reality is that we can’t do everything. 
And if you are a A TYPE personality like me, you sometimes make the mistake of thinking you can do it all. 
Then all of a sudden you turn around and realize that you took your eye off the couple of things that you are very good at and is working for you. 
Next time you find yourself in the dilemma of wanting to say yes to somebody or a new idea, when you know that you should stay focused on what you are doing and say no.
Just remember this quote by #warrenbuffet . 
Hopefully it will help you the way it has helped me.

  • I love someone with a hunger to learn.

What a lot of people don’t know is that most of my employees started out as interns. They come in hungry to learn and end up out-working the people that are already working there. Hence why I hire most of them!

Our interns serve as our mentors just as we try to be theirs. I feel like there’s always something to be learning from everyone, especially the generations who are coming up and learning new technologies and staying on the latest trends.

My company @thesharkgroup is looking for interns for the upcoming Winter / Spring semester for the following areas:

Licensing
Speaking
Marketing
Digital Content
Sales
Video & editing
Web Development
Social Media
Graphic Design
Branding
Business Development

Know someone? Tag them.

Interested? Email internships@thesharkgroup.com with your resume and what area you want to go into.

  • This is what I’m talking about! @michie_peachie going into FULL #BossUp mode.

I created my album #VISUALIZE to get you all motivated to do whatever it is your set your mind to. It’s been amazing to see the response from you all and to see how you are using it to fuel your fire.

Thank you to Michie for not only using my track to get her going but for motivating me to get my ass to the gym 😂! Now who’s ready to join the movement and make things HAPPEN.

I want to highlight how you all get motivated - if you want the chance to be featured on my page, post your own videos with any of my #VISUALIZE tracks (available on Apple Music and Spotify) and how it motivates you. Then tag me and use the hashtag #VISUALIZE

Now it’s time to #BossUp and don’t lose that determination!

  • Man...I was sweating for this one 😳

When @vanityfair told me that @mcuban and I were going to take a lie detector test together, I figured “no sweat”

But it’s a whole other game once you’re attached to that machine and you’ve got Mark staring you in the face interrogating you 😂

Chocolate Thunder is back in the Tank tomorrow night at 9pm est on ABC...seriously. I’m telling the truth.

  • 12 cities in 6 days.
I had such a crazy week! People often ask me how and why do I do what I do?
Well, anybody that is doing what they love can easily answer that question. 
Growing up as a little brown boy from Queens. 
I would never have imagined that I would become a motivational speaker. Let alone being blessed to receive standing ovations from people around the globe that I have delivered my keynotes to. I thought the only person that receives that kind of love is @tonyrobbins aka The GOAT when it comes to motivational speakers.  I am living proof that you don’t need money, a famous last name or a special talent to become anybody that you want to be. Trust me! If I can do it, anybody can do it! You just have to be dedicated to your dream, set goals, take affordable steps and be willing to sacrifice.
Thank you to everybody that I had the privilege addressing this week.
Your love and energy inspires me to work even harder.
Wishing you and everybody else a great weekend. 
DJ

This is hilarious! Thanks for this @maffmanjones …I cant stop laughing.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who deals with “Wrong Name Syndrome.” Even autocorrect changes my name from Daymond to Raymond, you’d think it would know by now!

Now, if you ever see me and get confused what my real name is, just remember it’s Raymond with a D.

What’s the worst misspelling of your name you’ve gotten?

  • Start using social media to your advantage.

If your audience isn’t seeing you as an expert in your field, how are they supposed to trust you when you’re selling to them?

Trust is a digital currency in social media. People want to know what it is you actually have to offer them besides your product.

Are you adding value to their lives?

Do they come to your page for tangible tips?

What are they gaining from following you?

Do they feel like you’re being authentic, or are you putting up a front?

Social media is my way to connect with all of you on a personal level. I make sure that I’m checking in every day and getting back to as many comments as possible and answering whatever questions you may have.

I do it because I love it and because I want you all to be the best entrepreneurs you can be. So take it to heart when I say stop selling your product and start selling your true self.

  • Someone called the city on 13-year-old Jaequan for selling hot dogs. But the city stepped up and helped him get his permits.

My man @iamsteveharveytv brought me on to surprise Jaequan and give him a few tools that would help him grow his business. My friends #HammacherSchlemmer hooked him up with his own custom hot dog, but of course we didnt want to stop there.

I also wanted to make sure Jaequan had the competitive edge in both in life and business, so I gave him a laptop already programmed with my entrepreneur training course #DaymondOnDemand so that he could help grow his hot dog business and any other endeavor this future mogul wanted to venture on.

I don't take moments like this for granted. Being able to pay it forward is one of the most rewarding things you can do. I challenge you all to do the same today and every day. Every small bit counts to make someone else's day a little happier.

Hope you're still killing it out there Jaequan!

  • I know this video is old, but it still holds so much power.

It’s a refreshing reminder to always being improving yourself, and to take the inspiration of others success and apply it to your own life.

If you watch one thing today, make sure it’s this. And while you watch it a second time, take notes, because this holds a lot of lessons that I still continue to strive to achieve today.

What’s the strongest lesson you learned from this?

  • Don’t pay attention to uninformed critics.

No matter how far you go, there will always be people saying you had it easy getting there, or that you had all the resources available to you, even if you were like me and had to take every step necessary just to make ends meet along the way.

Here’s my advice: Surround yourself with like-minded people who believe in you.

Haters are great motivators, but at the end of the day you need to make sure you keep your circle filled with the kind of people who will inspire you and pick you up when you need it.

Happy Monday my fellow Sharks. Let’s #BossUp and make this day the best it can.

  • Having watched over 800+ pitches on Shark Tank, we’ve seen it all.

If you’re not getting the investments or feedback you want to hear, this is how I suggest you tighten up your gameplan:

Know your numbers.

Learn from your failures.

Don’t talk about market size. Tell us how you’re disrupting it.

I’m telling you a few more in the video too, so make sure you watch the whole thing.

Watch the new episode of shark tank tonight at  9pm est and you’ll see what I mean.

What’s one thing you need to work on in your pitches? Or what’s something you would add? #SharkTank

I always stood out - a kid from Queens with dyslexia trying to make fashion and hip-hop become one. But I never stopped believing in myself, even with others doubted me.

My fellow Sharks all stand out.

My Shark Tank entrepreneurs stood out.

My team all stood out to me and continue to do so.

Don’t be afraid to be yourself! Just as long as you share the love and appreciate others for who they are as well.

I hope this brings you a little laugh and that you have a great Friday!

Tag someone who is never afraid to stand out.

  • You just cant.

If they have it in their head already that they’re going to succeed, what’s going to prohibit them from making it happen? Nothing. Because the biggest thing stopping most people is themselves. But if they’re already in the right mindset, they’re going to get there one way or another.

I knew I wanted to be and was going to be successful. Did I have all the tools to make it happen easily? Hell no.

But I worked and worked and made mistakes and learned from them because I knew the process was going to be worth it.

Thanks to my man @djvice for having me on his podcast to capture this.

So let me know…do you agree with me?

  • With so much negativity in the world around us it can be all too easy to get wrapped up in it.

Remember that we control our own happiness and sometimes all it takes is a little mind #powershift to change your entire mood and outlook on your day.

Positive thinking helps you find clarity in focusing on what’s really important, and even helps those around you to become more positive, too. A win-win for everyone involved.

In the comments, write one positive affirmation about yourself, then tell yourself the other two. Start practicing TODAY. #WellnessWednesday

  • It starts with you.

I make every minute count. Whether it’s the time I’m at the office, the travel in between gigs, or the time I’m spending with my family, I’m making sure every single ounce of my day is being used productively.

Once you start to harness the power of spending your days wisely instead of saying you’re working “hard” but are just scrolling social media endlessly, or making excuses for why you didn’t get up earlier today to get to the gym, you’ll start to see real progress.

How do you try to get the most out of every day? #Powershift

  • Who caught the #SharkTank season premiere last night?

I don't know about you but it feels good to be back on Sunday nights! The more this show goes on, the better it gets.

Last night, there was one pitch in particular that talked about health and had some questionable claims about the effectiveness of its product. I never like to get behind products or companies that give me a bad taste, but rather ones that can back it up and have a greater mission attached to them.

Though @starkeyhearing isn’t a contestant on #SharkTank, any business who wants to be on the show or succeed in general should pay attention to them as a company. From staying on top of the latest technologies with their #StarkeyLivio hearing aids, to giving back in big ways to people who need it most, this company has been a huge game changer for both my hearing and my business mindset.

Now let's get talking...What did you all think of last night's premiere?

  • Take accountability for yourself and your life.

What you put in is what you get out. If you feel like you could be doing more, then do more, but don’t sit around expecting others to pick up your slack.

When all is said and done, you are the only one who can drive the outcomes you want from this life.

Don’t like where you are? Change it.

Want to make something better for yourself? Do it.

Work just a little bit harder with less excuses and I promise you’ll start seeing progress. I want it for you, but do you?
