By Davy Crockett In 1963, President John F. Kennedy unintentionally played a role that provided the spark to ignite interest for ultrarunning in America and elsewhere. The door was flung open for all who wanted to challenge themselves. An unexpected 50-mile frenzy swept across America like a raging fire that dominated the newspapers for weeks. Tens of thousands of people attempted to hike 50 miles, both the old and the very young. Virtually unnoticed was a small club 50-mile event hiked by high school boys in Maryland, that eventually became America's oldest ultra: The JFK 50, founded by Buzz Sawyer.

Visit https://ultrarunninghistory.com/member Kennedy's Push for Physical Fitness While running for president, Kennedy had campaigned with a goal to improve the nation's physical health, and once in office he made that a priority. He feared that the future generations would be spectators of sport rather than participants on the field of play because of their lack of physical fitness. In 1961 a “Fit as a Fiddle” newsreel was produced by Kennedy's Physical Fitness Program targeting youth to understand the importance of physical fitness. Also, that year, 200,000 copies of a song called “Chicken Fat” was distributed to all schools with the lyrics, “Nuts to the flabby guys! Go, you chicken fat, go away!” Fitness Test for Marines General David M. Shoup Back in 1908, President Theodore Roosevelt issued an executive order that every Marine captain and lieutenant should be able to hike 50 miles in 20 hours. In 1962 Kennedy discovered this order and asked his Marine Commandant, David M. Shoup (1904-1983), to find out how well his present-day officers could do with the 50-mile test. Shoup made it an order to his Marines. Twenty Marine officers were selected to take the test in mid-February 1963, at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. News Article Starts the Frenzy An Associated Press article published nationwide on February 5, 1963, shared the story of the 50-mile test. It received intense national attention. President Kennedy never directly challenged the American public to take the 50-mile challenge, but the article inspired many across the country, who were eager to test themselves too. The Public Starts Hiking 50 Miles Naïve, untrained, civilians, immediately decided to hit the road without much planning to undertake the challenge in the middle of the cold winter. On the very evening after the article was published, Lt. Colonel James W. Tuma, age 48 (1914-1990) from Michigan, stationed at Fort Huachuca, near Tucson, Arizona, immediately decided to start a 50-mile hike through the Sonoran desert. You would think, Tuma, who held a Ph.D. in physical education, would have more sense, but away he went. He hiked through the night, not sleeping. He said, "Everybody was nice along the way, wanting to give me a ride." The next morning, he finished his 50 miles with a sprint for a time of 13.5 hours and was credited as the very first one to finish 50-miles that the start of the nation-wide craze. Robert F. Kennedy's 50-mile Hike After his 50-mile hike, Ethel Kennedy helps RFK recover. On February 9th, four days after the story went public, Attorney General Robert F Kennedy decided to take the challenge himself and hike 50 miles. Without any specific training, Kennedy hiked away on the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal towpath (the future home of the JFK 50) with his dog Brumis and some aids. After 25 miles, the group was ready to give up. But the press had caught wind of what Kennedy was doing, and a helicopter arrived soon after with photographers and journalists. So, Kennedy set off again. His last aide dropped out by 35 miles,

In Revelation 17, the Apostle John describes in great detail the characteristics of a false church that will be the partner of the Antichrist. Was he describing the Roman Catholic Church? To answer that question, Dave Hunt spent years gathering research and indisputable historical documentation (primarily Catholic sources) providing information not generally available. Are you missing half the story about the last days? Virtually all attention these days is focused on the coming Antichrist—but he is only half the story. Many are amazed to discover in Revelation 17 that there is also another mysterious character at the heart of prophecy—a woman who rides the beast. Who is this woman? Tradition says she is connected with the church of Rome. But isn't such a view outdated? After all, today's Vatican is eager to join hands with Protestants worldwide. "The Catholic church has changed," is what we hear. Or has it? In A Woman Rides the Beast, prophecy expert Dave Hunt sifts through biblical truth and global events to present a well-defined portrait of the woman and her powerful place in the Antichrist's future empire. Eight remarkable clues in Revelation 17 and 18 prove the woman's identity beyond any reasonable doubt.

Virtually every leader has been faced with a turnaround situation - bringing a failing organization back to its former successful state. Or finding a high-quality solution to a problem that can no longer continue. A new leader is brought in to direct the turnaround situation in some instances. In other cases, the current leadership team is expected to get things back on track. And most often sooner rather than later. Because turnarounds are challenging, complex, and often situation-dependent, each one is unique. But all turnarounds have one thing common: They require effective leadership. As Rosabeth Moss Kantor wrote in Harvard Business Review, “turnarounds are where leadership matters most.” Kim Lopdrup knows how to lead turnarounds. He successfully faced a number of them in his career at Red Lobster, where he served as CEO for 14 years across two different stints before retiring this past summer. Under his watch, Red Lobster has more than exceeded expectations through the pandemic. He joins us today to talk about the elements of successful turnarounds, including communicating with employees, believing in the plan, and getting it done quickly. Learn how the Raymond A. Mason School of Business at William and Mary can help you and your organization develop your top talent through customized executive education and professional development programs.

Now more than ever, our jobs require us to be on camera and present ourselves in the virtual world. If you're going to have your camera on, then you better be strategic about how you're showing up - no resting b**** face, and no disorderly background. In large Zoom calls, we might think we can get away with not making an effort, but people notice, and that hurts our brands. How do you show up to Zoom calls so well-prepared and ready to engage that it helps us build relationships? What can we do to make our video backgrounds enhance our brands? In today's very special 100th episode of Social Selling Made Simple, I share tips you can implement right now to use Zoom at the highest level. Three Things You'll Learn In This Episode - Why virtual backgrounds don't work What are the shortcomings of virtual backgrounds, and is there anything we can do to improve their use? - The secret to creating your own video oasis How can you turn a small corner in your home into a world-class, Zoom-worthy studio (even if the rest of your house is chaotic)? - How to show up and show out on Zoom Virtual meetings aren't just a communication channel, they can be a powerful branding tool. What are the advantages of implementing strategic visibility?
Welcome to Finance and Fury. I was looking at an interesting survey that is regularly conducted – so in this episode What do investment managers think the top risks to the markets are? This is a survey that Deutsche Bank regularly does where it surveys investment managers and Wall Street participants – The results help to gives some insight to the thinking of portfolio positions from those that control some of the largest levels of money flows in the investment landscape – This is interesting because of what actions investment managers take in response to their predictions – if they think markets will go down, they might be slightly more defensive in their allocation – or sell off some of their higher growth holdings – resulting in a decline of those shares - What happens to the price of assets on markets often occurs ahead of any event materialising – prices move at first due to the anticipation of an event materialising Looking at the DB survey - One of the questions that the 600 participants were asked: “Which of the following do you think pose the biggest risks to the current relative market stability?” – where they had 13 answers in total to choose from – These are not in order – but I will list all 13 out and let you think about what you think the biggest threats are to financial markets and see how it stacks up against the predictions of wall street Domestic policies (such as tax or spending that governments make) – This partially relates to Fiscal policy – the policy that governments make, how much to tax people, what stimulus packages are taken, if business are to be shut down due to lockdown restrictions Worries about the debt burden – This is the risk to domestic governments, particularly in the US that the increase in the debt has on markets – can the government repay their debt obligations? Geopolitics – This is international politics which could affect markets – this ranges from hot wars, such as if a war between the US and China breaks out over Taiwan – which is very unlikely – all the way to a tariff policy on commodities Worries about longer term structural consequences of the covid shock – supply issues from government shut downs Waning vaccine efficacy – this can be a risk to markets as it can spell further government shutdowns and restrictions An uneven global vaccination campaign and economic recovery – this relates to countries having different policies to one another New variants that bypass vaccines Tech bubble busting – FANG shares and other large tech companies which make up a large portion of markets like the NYSE and Nasdaq collapsing – this is possible when looking at their PE ratios Strong economic growth failing to materialise or being very short lived – Policy makers have forecasted good growth of GDP coming out of a slump in GDP – this has been prices into the markets, so if it doesn't materialise then markets can negatively react A Central bank policy error – For example – not increasing interest rates when they should – continuing QE longer than necessary – tightening too quickly Fiscal policy being tightened too quickly – the stimulus measures being reduced too quickly Higher than expected inflation/bond yields – inflation materialises at a higher rate than anticipate – and bond yields start to rise – which means their prices have collapsed Other – could be anything else So what do you think? – No right or wrong answers – the results are simply the opinions of the 600 survey participants Is it Covid related – with vaccines not working as promised, or a new variant coming out? Is it due to geopolitics, or domestic policies, like a debt burden? Or is it central bank related, with policy errors or fiscal policy being tightened too quickly? Or is it inflation and bond yields being higher than expected The poll shows that it appears that the fears from government responses to covid is officially over - According to the latest monthly survey of 600 global market participants conducted by DB - for the first time this year, the biggest perceived risk to markets is no longer government responses to covid. Instead, the top three risks are: higher than expected inflation and bond yields – This is the highest by any margin – 74% central bank policy error – where a CB may tighten too quickly – i.e. increasing interest rates rapidly to combat the number 1 perceived risk of higher than expected inflation strong growth failing to materialize or being very short lived (i.e. stagflation and/or recession). These three are rather related – in reality – Inflation materialises – with no growth – such as a stagflation event – then central banks may respond but make an error – then this exacerbates the issues Overall – higher than expected inflation/bond yields are the biggest perceived risk by professional investment managers – but the flow on effects from this are really what matters So lets break these three down further – looking at what wall street anticipates from here The most likely catalyst for the coming correction is in the form of higher interest rates – higher than expected at least – coming from a shock to interest rate rises that are out of cycle or not foreshadowed in the forward guidance Or at least that's what this survey suggests – when asked “with regards to 10 year US treasuries, will the next full 25bps move be higher or lower than current levels?” – the vast majority, or 84% of survey respondents expect the next 25bps move in 10Y yields to be higher, and just 11% lower. In reality though - only 5% of the respondents were honest saying that they don't really know – DB then asked respondents if they believe the policy error for major central banks - Fed, ECB, BOE - is going to be too dovish or hawkish Dovish refers to keeping policy too loose for too long – such as what has happened for the last 11 years in the USA – and may other countries in the world Hawkish refers to being too hard in a short period of time with policy – such as tightening too quickly The risks were seen as high everywhere but the Fed/ECB were seen more likely to keep policy too loose with the BoE expected to err on the hawkish side. Dovish – 42% for the Fed, 46% for the ECB and 20% for the BOE That they will get it right - 24% for the Fed, 26% for the ECB and 20% for the BOE Hawkish - 33% for the Fed, 21% for the ECB and 45% for the BOE So overall the consensus is that the US and EU is likely to continue to have low rates when compared to the BoE – When combining two of the top three results – that is Looking at the combination of higher inflation and lower real growth – i.e. stagflation - the next question is “what are the risks of stagflation over the next 12 months according to your definition?” the concept of your definition is an interesting one – as technically there is a fluid definition of stagflation - where there is no overwhelming consensus definition for "stagflation" based around the levels of growth and inflation – I.e. does a 3% inflation with 2.5% GDP growth equal stagflation? Technically yes – but this is pretty normal for some western nations and wouldn't be of concern For now – lets look at three simple categories – all of which can technically meet some definition of stagflation A strong slowdown in growth and a strong pickup in inflation – 25% of participants agreed with this definition – with most expecting a very high or high chance of this occurring in the UK – not as much in Asia or the US – but 40% chance in EU Growth around zero or negative and inflation well above target – 45% of participants agreed with this definition – again with the higher chances in the UK But very low chances of around 15% in Asia and 20% in the USA - Growth below trend and inflation comfortably above target – 30% of participants agreed with this definition – again the UK was the stand out with 75% of the respondents believed that that this was very high or highly likely When looking at inflation expectation – the survey asked “the fed currently believes the recent increases in inflation are largely transitionary. Which of the following statements most accurately reflects your view?” Virtually all transitionary – 2% - Mostly transitionary – 62% - Mostly permanent – 31% - Virtually all permanent – 3% - Don't know – 2% This is an interesting result – as the answer to this question all depends on how you view inflation – the fact that we get 5% inflation this month – but then inflation goes back to 2% next still means that whatever inflation has been incurred is still permanent – unless we get deflation the following month – therefore – 100% of respondents should respond with ‘virtually all permanent” – but what they are referring to is the % increase over time – is 5% permanent or will this go back to 2.5%? This is what the respondents are answering The final question of relevance – and what is most important to investors – the end result of market prices – “in your opinion, do you think there will be an equity correction before the end of the year?” When asked if there will be an equity correction before year-end, only 29% said no, while solid majority, or 63%, expect a drop between 5 and 10% before year end. Just 8% expect the coming drop to be bigger than 10%. Then 29% think there will be no correction of magnitude – However market sentiment has changes slightly over the past month since September – Going from 58% to 63% for those that market will decline by 5-10% - but then those that think more than 10% has gone down, -10-8% So in summary – did your views line up with wall street? Wall street think the biggest risk to markets are higher than expected inflation and bond yields – This is the highest by any margin – 74% central bank policy error – where a CB may tighten too quickly – i.e. increasing interest rates rapidly to combat the number 1 perceived risk of higher than expected inflation strong growth failing to materialize or being very short lived (i.e. stagflation and/or recession). Most think that the biggest risk is increasing interest rates – with transitionary inflation And that markets will have some mild declines between now and the end of the year – dropping by 10% at max, given markets have already dropped by 5% Thank you for listening to today's episode.

So strong that no matter what you are doing or not doing that, no matter what your kids are up to or not up to, and that whether you've got the person of your dreams or they're just not cooperating, that you are happy content and at peace, a space where everyone else's thoughts, attitudes, and actions are beautiful and exactly as they are supposed to be. Well, this is the space where I like to play. My name is Misha Z, and this is today's. Slap. Join me as I shed light on the thoughts, actions, and attitudes that are causing you pain. And we train our minds to go to the capital S inner self, the joy that is waiting for us, the God with him.Mischa Z: 00:53 I am going to talk about covert anger today. Covert, anger, and how I needed to, uh, have, uh, have awareness that I did indeed have some, perhaps what we would call subversive or covert anger issues. That's what, that's what we're going to talk about today. Um, when I, uh, was, so this morning, I, you know, did my meditation. Man, I slept not so well last night, it was interesting. Um, very tossing and turny. Very, very, um, very inter intermittent. Ooh, I think I'm coming across someone. I know Tony. What's the apps, man. Good, good to see how fun is that? Just got to say hi to Tony. Where was I? Oh yeah, fitful night's sleep.Mischa Z: 02:10 And I think what's interesting about a fitful night's sleep is as I'm having fitful sleep in that moment, I can be very concerned about what is the day going to be looked, going to look like as a result of my fitful nights, sleep? You know what I mean? Does anybody else had that before? So you're in the midst of your fitful night's sleep and the mind starts projecting. Maybe we could call it, the ego starts projecting. Oh no, what's my day going to be like, I'm going to be tired. How am I going to show up for people? Um, am I going to be, am I going to be exhausted in all my activities?Mischa Z: 03:07 What else could we say? Um, you get what I'm talking about? It could be anything, or, gosh, am I going to be fitful all night? Am I ever going to fall asleep? And the mind just starts rolling. And I guess the point of this little diversion is that, you know, I had my fitful night's sleep. I woke up, I was actually felt more refreshed than I thought it was going to. So that was a surprise. So all that projecting about I'm going to be exhausted and not be able to get anything done or whatever worries were happening in the fitful moment.Mischa Z: 03:48 And I headed off to do my meditation, my hour meditation. I do my hour meditation and it's a fun one. Actually, it was pretty good. You know, it's focusing on what, you know, the thoughts would run and then come back to breath and I do a meditation on a four count, oftentimes. So that's what I was doing this morning. And when I see a four count, each out-breath is a countdown from four. I need to figure out a better way to say this, how that works. But so, you know, in breath through the nose; out breath through the nose. Mentally say Four. Next breath in out breath say three. Next breath in and out breath two. And you're saying this to yourself, obviously in your mind. In breath out breath, one. In breath, repeat from four on down. And whenever the, so what happens is you doing the four count? Inevitably the mind will start thinking about things.Mischa Z: 05:07 And the awareness that I'm thinking about other things becomes evident is that a double, a double positive, the awareness becomes evident. That is funny. Anyway, the awareness that I'm thinking about other things becomes evident. So you come back to the four count and it's a very smooth, aware process. Lots of fun insights are flying around back to the breath. It's funny too, in some of those moments, I can have fear like, oh no, if I go back to the breath, the insights will go away. So I was definitely playing with that thought. And um, so I come out of the meditation. So the meditation is great, good hour meditation. And after the meditation, I was, I would say, surprisingly vibrant and vital. Full of vitality. I dunno if that's the right word, but it was refreshed. Shall we say? Yeah, it was refreshed. That's a great way to say it. So all my worries of I'm going to be tired all day... That may still be yet to come by the way, I might need an app or a new meditation session to find that refreshed attitude.Mischa Z: 06:50 Um, and so I went into A Course In Miracles and, you know, I had a powerful couple of days. So A Course In Miracles, I'm reading, this is funny. I'm trying recording on a new platform and I lose track of, it's hard for me to find the time. So come out of the meditation, do my A Course In Miracles. And I'm just super, I was so calm and centered and connected. I think that that's a great word to say. I was connected. Like I have was just at peace in the moment, savoring my cup of coffee. Um, very, I hadn't perhaps I'd say spaced out is the right word. I would start my reading the A Course In Miracles. And then the next thing you know, it took me to some starts is what I'm trying to say until I was able to focus on it. The A Course In Miracles, section of a manual for teachers, uh, section three, I think it was, I can't remember what the name was, but again, I was not hard on myself for not focusing, right.Mischa Z: 08:31 It can be frustrated and I'm not focusing. I have to start again or read that paragraph for the sixth time or that sentence for the seventh time. And that was very much, it's all good. It's all good. I was not tripping at all and having awareness that I was not tripping. So that, that there was very much the feeling this morning in the meditation and coming out in the meditation of the gift of the aware, observing the observer. Is that a way to say it? Uh, um, yes. So my mind was drifting it's it's one of those days. Thanks for hanging in there. If you've made it this far, really the whole point of telling you all about the meditation and such was to say, one of the thoughts that popped up is I was reading A Course In Miracles and I jotted it down was covert anger. I was very memories of my covert anger, um, issues. Had calm, subversive as well. They were so subversive to me and that I was able to definitely justify them. And so my rationalization was subverting my relationship, my happy relationships, how's that? Oh my gosh, Russell Brunson. If you're listening to this, you will not be happy. I'm not using fifth grader, lower words.Mischa Z: 10:23 Oh my gosh. So many thoughts, streams piling through the brain. But so, uh, I'll, I'll close that loop, uh, Russell Brunson and many others, uh, you know, they say, Hey, when you're talking to the public, oftentimes a very effective way to get your point across is take, keep it simple. Like keep, you know, you don't need to use big words like that can actually distract from your message. And I think about that a lot. Cause I, I love big words. I love looking them up in the dictionary when I come across them. It's fun to, to sometimes, you know, look up words and then see them see that word materialize in your, or in my, um, conversations are writing at a later date. And as a matter of fact, to continue on that loop, um, there's a thing called Hemingway Hemingway app or hemingway.com, Hemingway editor or Hemingway app.Mischa Z: 11:35 I think it's Hemingway editor.com (it's actually hemingwayeditor.com). I'll put the link, check the link in the show notes. Um, and by the way, does anyone else do this? Does anyone else like throw in the big words, thinking that will make you more effective? I know I do. So if you do, Hey, welcome to the tape. So Hemingway editor, I think that's what it's called. Hemingway editor.com. You can again, check the show, the links in the show enough, you can, you can put in your sentence and it will tell you what grade level you're speaking at and are the sentences too complex are like run-ons or things like that. Or, um, you know, are you using it'll, it'll tell you words that are like, uh, I'm trying to think of the word. Um, well it'll give you recommendations for like past tense, present tense or things like that, or it'll say, Hey, you can actually just omit this word. Fricking love that I've gotten in the habit of going to Hemingway editor.com and, and putting in, uh, sentences things that I'm writing and really using it as a tool to, to be more concise in my thoughts, in my writing and, um, fix run-on sentences and all sorts of stuff.Mischa Z: 13:18 And it's really fun to use it and then send it out, send out whatever I'm sending out email or, or show notes or something like that. And then read it at a later date and be like, oh yeah, that is much easier to read than my normal writing. Anyhow, the meditation subversive, anger, covert, anger, and the issues that it caused me. And when I had awareness of it and the steps that I took to break free of it, that's what I was was, and am going to discuss. Let's do that for covert anger part two. Okay.Speaker 1: 14:07 Thank you.

James Tynion's Batman has been hailed by many following the disastrous Tom King run. Wes explains that low expectations have masked a lot of issues with James Tynion;s current run as he winds down his time on Batman (00:00:00) Josh McDonald joins Wes first to talk about crossover event Batman: Fear State. Virtually every in continuity Bat-family book ties into Fear State but it's obvious the writers and editors aren't communicating. Leaving a limping story narrative that doesn't make sense. (00:23:24) Wes and Josh review handful of Batman related comics including Batman: The Imposter, The Joker, I am Batman, Batman: Urban Legends and Batman '89.

I finished the A Course In Miracles (ACIM) "Text" portion. I've been hard at ACIM for two years. I give you a high level breakdown of the layout. I'm astonished that I've come this far with it. And one of major breakthroughs I've had. I relate the impact of studying ACIM for that long to things you may have been studying.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

I just finished the A Course In Miracles "Text". I've been reading that, reading the A Course In Miracles, diligently doing all the exercise every day for, it's gotta be right at two years. And that's what I'm going to talk about today. And it's interesting. It feels like such a major accomplishment. And I was, I've been, I finished it yesterday, actually the Text. So the, A Course In Miracles combined volume is four main sections. There's the "Text", the "Workbook For Students", the "Workbook For Teachers". And I think it's "glossary" of terms or it's something there's a four section. And I, when I started it two years ago, I tried to start with the "Text", the "Text" section. It's about 670 or 675 pages long, composed of chapters. And each chapter has a section and each section is about two to three pages and it's super dense, lots of weighty concepts. And it's written in this double negatives and things like that. I was constantly looking up words and having to reread sentences to try to understand it. What they meant and get through the double and triple negatives even I think.Mischa Z: 02:16 And so in order, the A Course In Miracles is "Text", which is the 675 pages composed of all the chapters and sections. Then there is the "Workbook For Students", which is 365 daily exercises. And they're thought, um, exercises, meditation practices, um, some of the daily practices, have you say a mantra or a thought or a way to look at things on the top of the hour, every hour. Different things like that. It's really, really cool. And then I've just started the "Workbook For Teachers". And of course there's the "introduction" before all of that. So in the introduction, it says, Hey, you can read these this in no particular order. So if you're not called to read the "Text" first, then do the "Workbook For Students" or do the "Workbook For Teachers" or what have you. So I was trying to read the Text, but it was so weighty and lots of concepts and lots of words that I wasn't necessarily comfortable with.Mischa Z: 03:57 And so I found it to be a massive struggle and it was not gaining ground in the Text. This was two years ago when I first started. I was just walking past the skate park and they were cranking loud punk ish music. Not the poppy punk that perhaps we're all familiar with, but that edge. More mean. Mean's the right word, more aggression. I know what the word is. I'm looking for it. It doesn't matter. I hit pause and then re-started right now. So, and then of course I was reflecting on. Man, I used to kind of like that music when I was a wee lad and I would skateboard myself.Mischa Z: 04:55 Yes. When it was a weed, lad and used to skateboard myself who were the bands. Um, there was the straight edge bands cause because I was sober at such a young age and still sober straight line sobriety. Minor Threat, that was one of the straight edge bands. But of course there was the Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, the Sex Pistols, your classic. And then all the other ones, I can't remember. The more famous punk band has just popped into my head. But anyhow, back to the more spiritually weighted matters. Um, of A Course In Miracles in the Text was just not grooving for me. And so I was like, all right, I guess I'll just go to probably try it for a couple of weeks. So I moved on to, um, the Workbook For Students and the 365 exercises. And it was awesome. Highly recommend it to anybody, but I, but I did it one day at a time was very diligent, did not miss a day.Mischa Z: 06:10 If I went on camping trips, I would, I print out I'd snap, a picture printed out of that days, you know, exercise. And it really transformed my life in a lot of ways. If I was prepared, I would have told, be telling you how it transformed my life, but suffice it to say that judgements have been stripped away massively. Like I just don't judge people, places and things nearly as much. And it's interesting because as I was coming to starting the A Course In Miracles, I was like, I still have this low line judgment. And I don't like it. I don't like placing judgment on what people say, I'm just over it. And then A Course In Miracles manifested my willingness to do the a course of miracles. Finally manifested anyhow, I finished the 365 daily exercises of the Workbook For Students and started, went back to the Text and it was the most amazing thing.Mischa Z: 07:30 The Text, I could see it in a new light and the concepts were clean and crisp. I was able to get through the double negatives, you know, just awesome. So, so awesome. But I distinctly remember at the beginning of starting the Text, the second time I was like, there are 675 pages, two to three pages a day of way weighty concepts, what, that's a lifetime away. It felt like it was a lifetime away. And it was. So anyway, I just, all of a sudden yesterday I was done, literally. I was like, oh my God, I'm done! And wow. And my life for that next year, we'll tell you about reading that through the COVID through financial stuff, through like it's true, so much cool things have happened, new layers of letting go. I should save it for part two. Um, yes, yes. I will save it for part two, but I just would encourage anybody go buy A Course In Miracles and do itSpeaker 2: 08:56 And jump in the fray with me. You can click in the links in my show notes or on the resources page, www.belove.media/resources. So, so powerful. So look for a part two where I get more in depth into, um, actual changes that I'm aware of. And I'm going to end with this. I have gotten feedback from multiple people on how I've shifted so much, um, from, of course in miracles.New Speaker: 09:38 So as I was, you know, finished the course in miracles. And then, um, I finished the Text section of A Course In Miracles, the 675 pages, effectively two to three pages a day I got done and I was like, thinking, oh my gosh, I've got to record an episode about this because it's been so profound in my life. The ACIM for short, it's been so profound in my life. And then I was thinking, well, how many books have I read, which are powerful, or what have you, or, you know, I've been reading the big book. You can Google that. What's the big book, um, for my gosh, 35 years now, on and off, it's been so powerful in my life. I was thinking, well, what about, so I was like, well, gosh, I don't know if people will get the gravity of, of finishing the Text section, honestly. So I was thinking about it. I was like, man, I guess I would liken it to, I'm trying to think of any super it's like a college course or something is what I would say. So two years of this course in miracles, it's like college kind of, it's like taking math for two years, plowing through a couple of weighty, you know, math books and, and increasing your capacity for math equations, you know, getting into super fancy stuff. Or maybe, uh, I'm thinking like, um, Metta, no, not metaphysics, uh, like, uh, you know, physics like as people grow, grow and physics. And, and of course now I can't remember any of the terms, but then I was also thinking, well, maybe it's like someone reading the Bible. I've never tried to read the Bible myself, but I know some people have dedicated their lives to Matthew, this and Joseph that to Colin at this. And, you know, and just study a little bit or a lot of it every day. And as they can, maybe maybe people can relate to that or students or people who've taken doctorates, or masters or been to college, or maybe somebody who's, you know, mechanical thing. So learning, you know, going deep on engine stuff for electronics or it's, it's the it's that kind of wait. That was my final thought goodbye.

Right now, I would like to introduce to you Anthony Trucks, Ex-NFL player. This is a foster kid turned NFL athlete and serial entrepreneur with one serious superpower; making shift happen no matter what, by assessing the power of identity. You have overcome 30-plus traumatic life events, navigating the identity shifts that followed. Anthony has come to be known as the leading expert in shifting, which is making a shift internally to elevate how you operate externally, which in turn changes your life. Your system is called the Shift Method, and you weave together neuroscience, psychology, technology, and hard fought life lessons to help anyone with a desire for more in their life, achieve any goal they want or have ever wanted. I especially like this next sentence, "Before making it apparent that their goals were actually set far below their true potential in the first place." I love that. Like tapping into the potential that people don't even know that's there, it's beautiful.0:01:29.0 Anthony Trucks: And it's beyond, yeah.0:01:30.2 Mischa: Yeah.0:01:30.5 Anthony Trucks: Usually, it's far beyond their thoughts. We set limitations on our dreams without even knowing it.0:01:35.2 Mischa: Yeah, it's amazing. Buckle up, it's time to make shift happen.0:01:39.5 Anthony Trucks: Shift, shift and move.0:01:43.6 Mischa: [laughter] So first off, thank you so much for jumping in the fray with me. Very excited. And let's just maybe spend a few minutes, we can talk a little bit about your history and your 30-plus traumatic life events. I just... Looking at your history, one thing that jumped out at me was, you were 14, perhaps struggling a little bit in the foster home system. Yes, and then...0:02:09.6 Anthony Trucks: Yeah.0:02:10.3 Mischa: I read a note, you said, "Hey, I was a self-aware kid," and I recognized your pattern and you perhaps needed to change at that point. Maybe speak to that just quickly.0:02:21.5 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, well it's interesting, when I got to the age of 14, I'd already gone through years of crazy, We'll call it. I was given away at three, so I had a lot of different dynamics woven all into the personality and identity of who I was. It took a lot of years, but after a while, you start to see yourself for who you are. The problem is, I think, we are all self-aware, but we're aware of a self that we've crafted that's not always the most positive, so that's where why we beat ourselves up, "And we're not that good, not that great." And I think there's a separation when you can... In a positive way, a separation when you understand who you are seeing yourself through of the filter of the world, and then who you actually are. There is a difference. And so I think at 14, 15, I was still developing that. It wasn't until I was really like 15, that I got a chance to really see who I was. And I was like, "Oh, that's who you are," 'cause prior to that moment, I saw myself in a light that wasn't the best.0:03:15.3 Mischa: And was this a conscious change? Or was it sort of it just happened and looking back on it, hindsight, you're like, "Oh." Or was it... Does that question make sense, or...0:03:31.7 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, yeah, yeah, it does make sense. It was more of a hindsight, I think it took time and in the distance, and the background to get it.0:03:38.6 Mischa: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. You're just on the phone there, now you wanna put the...0:03:42.3 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, there's someone at the front door, but I'm not gonna talk to him.0:03:44.9 Mischa: Okay.0:03:45.6 Anthony Trucks: Somebody delivered flowers to my house, and it was the wrong person. So I think she's taking them, which is good, I hope she takes them to the person that deserves them 'cause someone deserves them, and they were not my flowers, but I'm good now.[chuckle]0:03:58.9 Mischa: All good. I'll be able to... We'll strike that. Strike that.0:04:02.1 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, yeah. Well, we could leave it in, it would just be weird, but that's the scatter brain-brain that is my brain. I'm the only one home, so my dog started barking, I gotta like, "Is someone at the door?" So yeah.0:04:10.9 Mischa: Yeah, yeah, yeah.0:04:11.9 Anthony Trucks: Now, we're good though. That's part of my identity. I can keep rolling, man. I mean you can keep it in, you don't have to keep it in.0:04:17.9 Mischa: Yeah, no, I love it. And we'll keep rolling. I think it's good.0:04:21.0 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, it's life.0:04:21.7 Anthony Trucks: What's that?0:04:22.4 Mischa: It's life, man.0:04:23.2 Mischa: That's life, especially these days.0:04:25.7 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, seriously.0:04:27.5 Mischa: Yeah. And then of course there was the, your very brief stint in the NFL. And I think the...0:04:37.5 Anthony Trucks: Yes, three years.0:04:39.3 Mischa: Yeah, yeah, the striking part there was you only got to play in one pre-season game and then you had an injury, or?0:04:44.8 Anthony Trucks: Well, my third year, I got hurt in my first pre-season game. So my first year, second year, I was cut the first year, cut the second year, third year, I was finally looking like I was about to make the team. And then I tore my shoulder and the season was over. So that was the first pre-season game. So no, I played in games. It wasn't like I just was there for a year and out of there, but it was, it's unfortunate man, there's a lot of build up to that whole situation, but the NFL is an interesting beast. It's the highest level in the world. So any time you get to the highest level in the world for anything, I don't care if it's the highest level of the world for, I don't know, kitten sock knitting, there's gonna be crazy things that go on, 'cause you got so many people involved, it's cutthroat.0:05:25.3 Mischa: Cutthroat.0:05:26.1 Anthony Trucks: It's ruthless. It is demanding at levels that are beyond human typical logic. 'Cause the typical human, I don't think that they... And this is not like saying people are better, right? But you're not typically in a race or in a competition to be the best in the world out of seven billion people, you know what I'm saying? So you're not... You're not at that... So now that you do, it's like the average human doesn't get the logic behind, why would you subject yourself to so much difficulty and pain and anguish? Why would you do that? It doesn't make sense. And I'm like, "It's right, it doesn't make sense that I would live a mediocre life, that is one I don't want to see what I'm fully capable of." It's a back and forth, you know what I'm saying?0:06:05.6 Mischa: Yeah.0:06:06.5 Anthony Trucks: So it's not that anybody is right or wrong, it's just, what's logic. And I don't think people use that... "Well, it's not logical." No, it's not logical to your brain, and that's okay. It's not logical that you would marry that person because they're a horrible person. There's just different things that are logic, and so I just... I've got to the point of realizing in life, the beauty is the difference. What is good for me isn't good for everybody else. I'm not a good fit for everybody, and that's okay. That's completely okay, and if you can get to that point, it alleviates so much more stress and anxiety and just weirdness that happens in life.0:06:40.3 Mischa: It's so empowering, it's very empowering.0:06:42.4 Anthony Trucks: Freeing, yeah.0:06:43.1 Mischa: A Place to be. Yeah, frank, I love that. I was curious, did you have any glory moments, sort of those stadium, 50,000 people.0:06:53.2 Anthony Trucks: Did I? Oh man.0:06:55.9 Mischa: Yeah.0:06:56.1 Anthony Trucks: How many do you wanna know about, man?0:06:57.3 Mischa: Tell me a couple. Tell me, I wanna know.0:07:00.7 Anthony Trucks: Here's a good one. Here's a good one. Here's a good one. It's two. These two are gonna be Oregon ones 'cause I had fun in Oregon. I had fun everywhere else but Oregon was a good one. So there's one play where we're playing against Arizona State, they had come to our house, junior year, and I'm trying to find, we're trying ball, right? And what happens, it was junior year, it's what it was. And they're at our house and we gotta beat them, we're trying to obviously make our way to get to another level and trying to get some ball game stuff going on, and they come to our house. And there's just this one specific play to where if they line up a certain way I blitz, and if they shift out of that, I don't blitz anymore because they have an extra person. Because if I blitz, somebody's open, so we'd be screwed. It's like 3rd and 12 or something, and the ball is... They get up to the ball, they get lined up. I'm supposed... Slits, they move. I don't realize it. So I am supposed to cover and in my head, I'm like, "I'm going, I'm going, I'm going, I'm going, I'm going."0:07:52.5 Anthony Trucks: I can see in the video, my line back with a mic sitting next going, "Don't go." You could see his hand motion, but it's Austin Stadium and Austin Stadium is one of the loudest in the country. You can't hear anything. So you gotta know it, and I'm just dialed, "I'm gonna get this dang court," as my head's here. And all of a sudden like you can see me in the balls hike, and I take off. Now, I don't know how that's happened, but their right guard was the guy who's supposed to guard me, guard or tackle, completely misses me, doesn't whatever it is, and the quarterback rolls out to me, and as he's rolling out, I barely... And he gets like a step away, I have to leave my feet, and if both of my hands don't grab this man in mid-air and grab him like a carnival game. You Know. I jump out, I'm in full Superman, I get one hand on his shoulder, one hand on his hip, I take him down and I celebrate, and the whole stadium just erupts, turn over on run downs, and we get the ball back. It was crazy. That was one of them. Another one...0:08:52.6 Mischa: So first of, wait, wait a minute. So that's on accident that that happens?0:08:56.0 Anthony Trucks: Oh yeah. After the play, if you look at the video, we have it after the play, I'm cheering my linebacker guy comes up, grabs my helmet, and you can see him yelling at me, "You've messed up, but you didn't mess up. Great job. Don't do that ever again."[chuckle]0:09:07.5 Mischa: That's so good. Okay, next one. Okay.0:09:09.8 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, and then other one was, we're playing against... So at my senior year, I'm balling against... All the teams are playing. I end up leading my senior year, the Pack-10 at the time, in sacks, tackles for loss, forced fumbles and fumbles recovered, I was like 6th in total tackles, but I missed a game against USC to a high ankle sprain, but I was balling that year. And I was doing well, I had three sacks against ASU, as a matter of fact, the next year at their place, and so I'm feeling good about myself and my coach ran a meeting one time we were about to play Cow, Cow is coming up to Oregon. And I'm talking I'm proud of how good I am, he's like great job. He goes, "Hey I don't want you to think you're the greatest," he says, "You ain't the greatest until you go in there, you sack, you force a fumble, you recovered the fumble, you pick it up and score a touchdown. Then you can start talking, right? So he says this and he's serious, but joking at the same time.0:10:00.5 Mischa: Of course.0:10:00.6 Anthony Trucks: This was like early in the week. Now we come to the game, I was like the second or third quarter, I can't remember what it was. And they line me up and they give me a blitz, so I'm like, "I'm gonna go get this guy," right? And in my head, I'm not thinking about what he said earlier in the week, I'm just doing my thing. So I come around the bend and the running back goes to block me. Somehow, he misses me completely. I sidestep him, he goes flying by. So I go up, the quarterback doesn't see me, blind sight, sack him. Forced ball comes out, forced the fumble. Fumbles on the ground. We both go to the ground. I recovered the fumble. Now it's college football, so your knee is down, so I didn't score a touchdown. I mean, the whole crowd's erupted. Everybody is crazy. Everybody's... I'm excited, I come to the sideline. I'm high five'ing. Hey man. Hey man, I come to a coach. He looks me dead in eyes, and he goes, "But you didn't score a touchdown." That was Don Kellum.0:10:54.0 Mischa: Ruthless. Don.0:10:54.3 Anthony Trucks: Ruthless dude. That's how he was. He was the hard-nosed dude. But he...0:10:57.3 Mischa: That's cold-blooded.0:10:57.9 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, I got a whole bunch of weird ones like that. I got stuff from the NFL, High School. We got a whole bunch, but those are two of my fun ones.0:11:01.3 Mischa: That's beautiful. Yeah. And so when you hurt your shoulder, and career is over, that's pretty deflating to go from those highs to those lows, obviously.0:11:14.5 Anthony Trucks: Pretty much though. Yeah, you go from being somebody to being nobody, at least in your head, internally. Any time a human being has put their heart into something, whether it's being a parent and the kid goes to college, leave the military, you leave sports, you lose a job, you leave a job, you sell a business. When you no longer can show up in the capacity of that role anymore, you lose a sense of yourself. And so for me, it was football and I've lost a sense of myself in that realm, and so yeah, I definitely had a little downward spiral, we'll call it.0:11:43.0 Mischa: Yes, and then you were able to make it through a dark time, come out the other side. Have a pivot point where, "Hey, I think coming through that perhaps close to suicide moment," yeah?0:12:00.3 Anthony Trucks: Most definitely. Yeah, unfortunately.0:12:01.9 Mischa: Yeah, unfortunately, it's a dark place to be. So you create a tool, which I'm staring at, at least the result of the tool, so now you...0:12:12.2 Anthony Trucks: One of them.0:12:12.7 Mischa: What's that?0:12:12.8 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, it's one of them for sure. I make a whole bunch of weird stuff now.0:12:15.5 Mischa: Yeah, cool. Oh, go ahead.0:12:17.5 Anthony Trucks: That's a good tool you got right there. That's the slow or go identity. It's a good grid right there.0:12:22.3 Mischa: Yeah, it's great. I just wanna tell you that, as I said before we started recording that you are very influential in me helping get the summit.0:12:33.1 Anthony Trucks: Nice.0:12:34.2 Mischa: Continuing with the summit process, because I took your little... You go to... Anybody can do this. They can go to Anthonytrucks.com and click on the what's my identity type button.0:12:46.8 Anthony Trucks: Easy.0:12:47.8 Mischa: Yeah, super easy. And the quiz I was taking it like... Yeah, we'll see. Honestly, I was like, "Yeah, what's this?" And I took it and that it was right on the money, my friend, and I was [0:13:00.4] ____.0:13:00.4 Anthony Trucks: Is it kinda weird?0:13:00.4 Mischa: Yes, it's very weird. Turns out, I hate to admit it, but I will, I'm a dabbler. And so it helped me... One thing you have on the dabbler is to find little successes to help propel you forward and to have a contingency plan for when you go into that dark spot, that shiny object.0:13:27.2 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, 'cause dabblers are people who chase opportunity, but they shut down in oppositions sometimes.0:13:31.3 Mischa: Yes.0:13:31.7 Anthony Trucks: So in order to push forward to be a doer, all you have to do is spend time doing more, which means you have to tackle the oppositions.0:13:39.6 Mischa: Yeah, perfect. Love it. So that moment helped me progress forward with my summit, 'cause it's lots of inviting and potentials for rejection and stretching, right?0:13:53.2 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, I agree.0:13:54.3 Mischa: So thank you for that, Anthony.0:13:54.4 Anthony Trucks: You're very welcome, man. What it's for? What I made it for, man. Yeah.0:13:57.8 Mischa: Yeah. So that was... I just... Beautiful. So I'm gonna get to the point here. So you're gonna answer a question for me. I'm gonna set up a scenario and why we're all here. So here's the scenario. We've got somebody... And it sounds like you have been through it multiple times in your life, so you are gonna be familiar with it, so we've got... Let's look at life, the three-legged stool, relationships, finance and health, and then... Yep, now, so now someone who is successful or once successful, and they... You have two legs of those stool come out from under you, that can be a very dark place, and you were there.0:14:40.1 Mischa: And so for me, I had that. I had had success in my 20-year sales career, all of a sudden, career upheaval. I went through a divorce out of nowhere, financial distress, and both my parents died in rapid succession within two weeks of each other, and it was a very dark time. And the thing was, was that to pull myself up from my bootstraps attitude that, "Work your way through it," wasn't working. I needed extra, I needed a little nudge, I needed something like this. So my question to you is, thinking of your tool, your modality, all your bag of tricks, what are the exact next steps you would offer a person like me that was in that scenario, so that I know that I'm headed in the new, right direction, that I'll have positive momentum towards getting my life back on track?0:15:36.4 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, so the one thing that's good about this is it's not a guessing game. I think some people, they will navigate this by guessing little pieces that could be beneficial, and for me it's like, I look at the whole revamp. See you've mentioned and alluded to earlier, I've had 30-plus randomly weird situations that have... I could say each one of them would have... Has knocked other people off track for an entire lifetime.0:15:56.2 Mischa: Yes.0:15:58.7 Anthony Trucks: Very odd. It's very odd, and I didn't even think of it and notice it until I was in my early 30s, to be quite honest. I was like, somebody else brought it to the forefront and I was like, "Yeah, I did, oddly have a way of doing this, and so I'll tell you what I've done every time that that's happened to me."0:16:12.0 Mischa: Fantastic.0:16:12.7 Anthony Trucks: So I did it accidentally at first, and now I do it proactively. I think we do have that unfortunate life, we do proactively choose to eat healthy sometimes, but most of the time we react to life, we're not responding in a chosen manner. So what I've done is I've gone back and said in those moments, I needed to look at who I was, not so much what I knew or what I had access to. And in my life now, I'm always like, "I got a problem. Who is Anthony right now? My wife and I are arguing, who am I? I'm not the best father. Who am I? I'm not working out the way I'd like to, Who am I?" And there's a reason why I say, "Who am I?", not, "What do I gotta do?" Because if you are the person to do those things, you wouldn't even question what you have to do, you just do that stuff. That's just the simple nature of it. Like if I'm the person who just... If it's who I am to work out every day, I'm gonna work out every day, I'm not gonna worry about that. If it's who I am to be the most amazing, loving, caring, paying attention husband, that's who I'll be every day.0:17:09.5 Anthony Trucks: And so when someone's in that space, typically we say, "What's wrong? What do I gotta fix? What do I gotta do?" And I'm more like, "Who do you gotta be?" 'Cause if you don't realize that there's a certain core person of you running all this, then you're gonna keep repeating the same situation, you'll keep landing in the same place. And this is why a lot of my work is in identity, it's all in that realm of, "Who are you?" So what I first have people do is you have to have them see. And the see phase... It's a three-step phase called the shift method. The first stage is the see phase, and the see phase is where you get to go in and take a look at what is really going on, and it usually isn't fun to see. It's the stuff where you get exposed to the true aspect of your humanity and you go, "Yeah, I don't like that part of me," but for the first time in your life, maybe you actually accept it and go, "I gotta work on that." 'Cause not everybody does.0:17:58.4 Mischa: Oh, absolutely. It can be hard. Can I ask you a question in that regard?0:18:01.6 Anthony Trucks: Please.0:18:02.0 Mischa: So is there like... Give my audience an actionable step in that regard to...[overlapping conversation]0:18:06.7 Mischa: Yeah, absolutely.0:18:07.6 Anthony Trucks: Here we go. So this is dead serious, is we have something we call triad talks, and it's a certain series of questions in a certain order and a specific way we do it, but I'll give you the overarching. What you do is you go and select a group of questions that essentially would get to the root of you, that you don't even... That you'd be scared to hear the answer to. We'll call it that. Get to the root of the questions. And then what you do is you go find people who you know and that you like and that they're positive humans, and you ask them, "Hey, can you answer these questions for me, about me?" And this is something where there's a way you go through it to where you do certain things to where you're not actually, we'll call it, cannibalizing your ability to get great answers, but what you'll do is you'll get feedback if you do it the right way. You'll get feedback from people that is really hard to swallow.0:19:00.0 Mischa: And usable, so let's just... I wanna tackle that. So we've got step one of the see... Step one is the see phase and a tool within that is a triad talk, and so... Fantastic. So give me an example of one, two or three questions, so like...0:19:19.3 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, easy. So I guess, well, one question I ask them is, if you were to get rid of a part of me, like, okay, you'll remove a certain part of how I do things. What would it be and why? If you were to rate my... If you could do this actually. Rating is usually fun. If you were to rate and you'll give me a number based from zero to 10 on how good of a friend I am or how good of a blank I am, is a good question there. What is the most frustrating thing about me that you feel like you have to endure, and I'll never change? Like little stuff like this.0:19:56.2 Mischa: Oh, those are good.0:19:57.1 Anthony Trucks: And they let them... And you ask the questions, but you have to be prepared for the answers. You have to actually absorb those answers a certain way, and if you do it right, it will break your heart, you'll feel like you wanna retort and you can't, but you'll get gold, you'll start to see yourself, and that's I think one of the biggest gifts is to see through the veil of really what's going on that other people can see, but I'm just blind to it, there's a statement that I love is you can't see the label when you're inside the jar. And a lot of us are in that jar and we don't even know what's going on or operating.0:20:33.2 Anthony Trucks: It's like, "How come no one's coming around? 'Cause it says poison on the outside," dude.[chuckle]0:20:36.5 Anthony Trucks: Like, Have you seen yourself?[laughter]0:20:38.2 Mischa: Right. Oh my God.0:20:38.7 Anthony Trucks: You gotta figure that out.[laughter]0:20:40.4 Mischa: Oh my gosh, that is amazing.0:20:43.6 Anthony Trucks: That's one of the first pieces, man, is, is going to a level of actually, that's the tactical thing is, What in the world do I gotta work on? And then the second thing that we do is we go through the shift phase, which really is where the action is taken, we are shifting internally and making shifts actionably externally because of those internal ones. And what it allows us to do is take a look at our life and then you actually change your life, 'cause shifts make the change, right? If I wanna change the destination of a plane, I am shifting the trajectory, right? I'm not... I wouldn't call it like I'm gonna change the trajectory. You'd kinda shift it like, I'm gonna go a little bit one degree this way. And I'll change the destination, right? That's what we're doing, we're trying to change the destination in your life. It's just a shift, not crazy.0:21:25.2 Mischa: You know what's so good about that and so hopeful about that is we don't necessarily need to do a 100, we don't need to move the ship completely.0:21:33.7 Anthony Trucks: No.0:21:33.8 Mischa: Right, it's like, "Hey, let's take those next little incremental things to get us going in that right direction, Right?."0:21:40.0 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, if you go... I literally Googled this, if you were to choose to go from San Francisco to the, say, Orlando Airport, if you on the way there made a one degree shift in trajectory from the get-go you would land 40 miles south in Lakeland, Florida.0:21:57.5 Mischa: Wow.0:21:58.3 Anthony Trucks: One degree.[laughter]0:21:58.9 Anthony Trucks: Isn't that crazy?[chuckle]0:22:00.2 Mischa: It's crazy, one degree.0:22:01.0 Anthony Trucks: That's the difference. So people are like, you don't gotta go and overhaul your entire life, man, just... 'cause the plane's always in the air. It's always going somewhere. Just adjust the trajectory. It's a shift and you're good.0:22:15.1 Mischa: I love it. So let me ask, how about an actionable step in the action step phase, so you've gone out and you gave me a few questions, so give me like an action step to help make that degree change.0:22:27.7 Anthony Trucks: Oh, yeah. So it's just fun but everybody can do this. All you gotta do is ask yourself, what's that one thing that's been lingering, and I'm gonna say why this is important. Let's purpose it with this, if something didn't scare you, it wouldn't be important to you. There are things that scare you that wouldn't scare me because they're important to you, and vice versa, there's things that I would be deadly afraid, deathly afraid to do it. You wouldn't even care. Like surfing, I'm gonna get eaten by a shark. I'm not gonna do that. But you're like, "No, bro this is easy." You see what I'm saying.0:22:55.5 Mischa: Yes.0:22:56.0 Anthony Trucks: The difference is, it's because what's important to you. Now, here's the thing, if that thing is lingering didn't scare you, it would already be done by now. It just would. If I'm like, "Hey, I want a hamburger and a milkshake," and I'm not gonna feel guilty, I'm going to the store right now.[chuckle]0:23:12.1 Anthony Trucks: I'm going to get it now... Any of you've done, I'm not afraid of it, I'm looking forward to it.[laughter]0:23:16.2 Mischa: Yes. Yes.0:23:16.6 Anthony Trucks: So a lot of these ideas and things that linger for a lot of folks, they're like, "I'm good, I just gotta get... " No you're afraid of it, and that's okay.0:23:25.2 Anthony Trucks: Right? So the first action you take is in the direction of the fear, and if you don't know how to do that, you take the fear and you find ways to open it up until you find the smallest pieces of it and then start attacking the small pieces, right? It's... What is that earth invaders? When you hit the...0:23:42.7 Mischa: Oh, space invaders?0:23:42.8 Anthony Trucks: And it turns into little ones and little ones...0:23:44.0 Mischa: Yeah, yeah, yeah.0:23:44.8 Anthony Trucks: You gotta make it the small ones, that's obviously the wrong game to do that, but when you can make things small. 15 minutes, it's much easier to overcome the fear for that 15 minutes than it is to perceive, "I gotta do this for the next week. Oh my God, okay, I'm gonna do that next week," and then next week and the next month, and then... So chunk it down to the smallest minute steps and then attack it that way, but it's usually gotta be in the direction of something that scares you or could linger for too long.0:24:12.1 Mischa: So any real-life example you've seen recently or you see...0:24:14.9 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, you wanna launch a podcast, you wanna launch a summit, right? Summit or podcast, right? And I'm not saying you're afraid of it at all, but I'm just saying, this is what... Some people are probably afraid of doing it. Yeah, he's maybe a little bit afraid, right?[laughter]0:24:25.8 Mischa: Yeah, maybe.0:24:26.5 Anthony Trucks: So you didn't just one day go, "Alright, I'm gonna do everything today," you're like, "Alright, I'm gonna send an email first." Small step.0:24:32.6 Mischa: Yeah.0:24:33.0 Anthony Trucks: Write the email, send it out, you wanna do it. Okay, great, okay, okay, now I gotta buy some equipment, I gotta figure out what the email thing look like. I gotta say, Okay, how do I time this? How am I gonna deliver it? How people are gonna opt in? When they opt in what are they gonna get? How I set a checkout page? How am I gonna get 'em to pay for this? Do I do a PayPal? This is all the stuff that goes into it. It's minute little steps, but you didn't just wake up one day, say I'm gonna figure it out today, you looked at little by little by little, and chunked it apart to where now it's real, it's live and it's coming to fruition.0:25:01.7 Mischa: I love that. Yes, thank you. Perfect, so then, so we've got the see phase, the action phase or the stuff... What did you define?0:25:11.2 Anthony Trucks: Shift. The see and shift.0:25:12.3 Mischa: Yes, yes.0:25:12.8 Anthony Trucks: And the last stage is sustain.0:25:19.7 Mischa: Sustain.0:25:19.9 Anthony Trucks: The sustain phase. See, Shift, Sustain.0:25:20.7 Mischa: See, shift, I couldn't read my own writing. See, shift.0:25:25.3 Anthony Trucks: Me either.[laughter]0:25:25.4 Mischa: Sustain. Sustain. So tell me about sustain.0:25:27.2 Anthony Trucks: Sustain phase is the one where... We as people unfortunately get to the point of we have success and then we stop doing what it took to get there because it either wasn't who we were, we just were pushing, or we got lazy. We're like, "I'll have this and maintain it'll be there," but we don't realize that you've gotta sustain the amount of effort to sustain a level of success and if you wanna have more success, you have to sustain the drive to continue to keep achieving more. So what happens is some people will... Like I had my gym business. I would focus on, "Let me get past this hump, I gotta make some money." And I would do all these things to get to the point that I make that money to pay the bills and go, "Oh, I can relax now." And then three months later, I'm in the exact same place. I gotta fight real hard because every time I would get to the top, I would stop doing what it took to get to the top.0:26:13.7 Anthony Trucks: Imagine if I just kept doing that stuff, the amount of momentum. So people don't have sustainability in life and it's not because they don't know how or don't have the skillsets, they just stop when they feel like they don't need to have that kind of effort and push 'cause they're not looking at shifting into being that person. And there's reasons that this happens. I think sometimes we lose sight of why we're doing things. It's not anchored consciously as to why I'm moving every day, I'm just getting up and doing it 'cause it's what my job is now.0:26:41.0 Mischa: Yep.0:26:41.0 Anthony Trucks: And then also I think sometimes we float around the wrong people. I think the hive, the environment's difficult 'cause there's a statement of, "You are the average of the five people you surround yourself with." And I think it's halfway right. I think you're the average of the expectations of the five people you surround yourself with. If you think about it, if I wanna... Say I have a million dollars and I wanna make $2 million dollars. Well, there's people I could hang out with that maybe have a million dollars, but what if it's a person that makes a half a million dollars, but they wanna make 2 and the million dollar people are content?0:27:15.7 Mischa: Yeah.0:27:16.5 Anthony Trucks: Well, the expectation of the half a million dollar person, they're like, "Look, I'm not shooting for 1, I'm shooting for 2." "Well, I'm shooting for 2 also. Let's figure it out." Whereas the million dollar people are like, "We've got a million dollars, we're cool." There's nothing wrong with them, but for what I want, I need to be around the expectations of what it takes to get there 'cause that half a million dollar person is not gonna let me sit idle at 1.2 or 1.3. They're gonna be like, "No, you keep pushing. You gotta get to 2." Whereas the 1 million dollar people, they're like, "Well, you're good. Slow down. What are you doing? Are you crazy?" So I think when you get into the sustain phase, if I'm gonna sustain my trajectory, I must consistently have a hive of people who have expectations at a level that are at or above where I wanna have them myself.0:28:00.0 Mischa: That's a great... I like the expectation piece in there because the... I like that added bit because the perception is, "If I hang out with a millionaire, bam, that's gonna... That is gonna help me elevate." Not that that's the all end all, but as an example.0:28:16.3 Anthony Trucks: Yeah. You'll get there. You can, but then, you can, but it's hard to get past there. Not that you can't, but it's hard to get past there 'cause you'll get to the point of... Think about what I just... Logically. "I got a million. Alright, cool. I'm gonna hang out, put my feet up. I'm gonna golf with Bob." And I'm like, "No, bro, I wanna make a $2 million dollar business. I can't go golfing and do that. I gotta go keep working." You know what I mean? There's just things you gotta look at. And so it is. It's an expectation piece and then if you don't sustain it, man, you'll lose it.0:28:44.8 Anthony Trucks: You'll just lose to be in place. And then I think at a certain level, for me, the sustain phase is, "I gotta find out why I gotta keep growing." And what I've found is anybody that's had a nominal level of success, there's a certain heart, for the majority in my opinion, to give back. They thrive, they wanna do well, and I found that there's this thing called marginal utility. And if I have 10 hamburgers, well, if I eat one 'cause I'm starving, that first one is delicious. Now the second one, it's still pretty good. Third one, I don't know. Fourth one, I can't do it, I can't do it. I got seven more hamburgers, what am I doing right now? I wanna feel good though. What do I do? I can't keep eating hamburgers.0:29:23.7 Anthony Trucks: Well, if I wanna feel good, what if I give them to somebody else who's starving? Different kind of good, but I feel good, so I give him the hamburgers. He does the same thing. He eats three and he's like, "Alright, I got four more." He keeps on passing it along. Well, the idea is if you do that, you'll notice, "Wow, I really like how it feels to give back and to serve. Who do I have to be, to be able to do that at a higher level?" And guess what it does? Puts you right back to seeing who you are and who that next person is that can do that. It's a cycle.0:29:54.6 Mischa: I think that's such a great space to work from as well. It's initially where perhaps when we're younger or what have you, it's that financial, build the family, find that success that pulls us forward and then it can be such a great place to work from, to shift to that, "Alright, how can I be of service on a broader scale?" So that's a great... That's a great thought as far as sustaining. So what are two or three habits that you have to help propel you on a daily basis or perhaps to find that...0:30:38.8 Mischa: That service piece, yeah. Go.0:30:40.3 Anthony Trucks: Yeah, yeah. So here's one thing is I fall in love with the day, not the destination. I think sometimes we spend way too much time looking at, "Well, am I there yet? Am I there yet?" like a 5-year-old in the car. But I love the days and I have a certain amount of space and time in my day that I operate and I love it. I love to be in motion. I think all humans... We love the motion. There's magic in the motion. There's something too... Like I can sit here with all this stuff off in my office and hang out, but there's more joy talking to you. Just like you. I'm sure before you could be in your house and be content, but when we get on like this, it's a different kind of joy we get to hang out in. There's no anxiety, there's no stress, we're just chatting, two guys talking. This is the motion of the magic, right?0:31:25.2 Mischa: Yeah.0:31:25.6 Anthony Trucks: And so what I look at is I need to be always in a position where I'm doing things that are keeping me moving, but the right things. So when you say, "How do I keep that consistent?" I just... I have a certain block of my day. I love being in the groove of working, but I make sure the things inside that groove are the ones that still scare me, are the ones that move that move the needle, are the ones that are useful to what I'm doing and habitually I just commit to falling in love with the day. And if I do that enough and if I have things that I enjoy, eventually, 'cause they're the right things, I end up at a destination and then I'm like, "Cool. I wanna get back to climbing the mountain." You spend way less time at the peak than you do on the journey. I want to enjoy the journey. So that's a big piece of it. And then if I'm hiking a mountain, I don't wanna be with a person who won't shut up that's annoying.0:32:17.9 Anthony Trucks: I wanna be with people who are like... Cheer me on, who could have similar conversations. 'Cause the thing about whenever you're out for a hike, time flies by with great conversation.0:32:27.6 Mischa: It does.0:32:28.6 Anthony Trucks: It melts away. So if I'm gonna be on this hike and I'm gonna enjoy the journey, I wanna have people that I can enjoy it with. And then when I get to the peak, I get to celebrate. They're taking a picture of me, I'm taking a picture of them. We get some lady I don't know to take a picture of us. It's this cool experience because you have the people and you are loving every step of the journey, quite literally.0:32:49.3 Mischa: Yeah, that's great. Do you calendar your sustainability, those activities?0:32:57.3 Anthony Trucks: Oh, man. I have a very ridiculous dialed in calendar for how my life is. It's right here. It's like my life is rolling it's... But here's the beauty of it, I have the method I use that I teach people, it boils down to execution. I think that's the one thing. Some people give a lot of insight, information, theory, and then leave it on you to figure out how to make it real in your life. Whereas for me, we teach, we talk, we boil things down to very specific actions, and even then I don't leave you hanging. Then I'm like, "Alright, great. We're gonna go... We're gonna put them in your life now, we're gonna make sure... " I just had a client call today, we broke down her entire morning routine down to the exact hour and a half she'll do it. I think an hour and half's kinda long, but for her it fits. But the idea's like I'm not just saying, "Go make a morning routine," and she's like, "Alright," and then walks away. We work through all of it, every piece, so there's understanding for it and the timing behind it, and then it's like, "Alright, now we take the action on it."0:33:54.6 Anthony Trucks: And it's that action that creates the difference, it creates a change. And so when I'm doing these things, I'm not just theory, man. I'm like, "I want you to finally have these things real in your life, because when they are that's when the true confidence comes in, the transformation comes in. It's not in the planning." We as humans feel better there. I think people fall in love with a safe work. "I wanna start a business." "Okay, start a business. What are you gonna do?" "Okay, I'm gonna get my business cards done, I'm gonna make a landing page, I'm gonna think of a name, I'm gonna, follow the... " That's not the stuff that you need to do to make the business. It sounds like it is. It's the safe work, though. You could do it in your house at night, making a little website, it looks pretty.0:34:29.0 Anthony Trucks: But the scary thing that actually makes it a real business, not you in the background, or having a hobby, getting bored, is when you can go, "Okay, pay me for this. This is what it's gonna cost you to actually get this improvement in your life." It's a business and that's the scary work. Now, the safe work and the fun work that has a place, but that's not what does it, man. And that's the thing is people are afraid of doing the scary work. They don't understand the sacrifice that it takes sometimes.0:34:58.3 Mischa: Yeah. It sounds like you are not only gifted at doing that scary work yourself, but you've systemized a way to...0:35:08.0 Anthony Trucks: Oh, very much.0:35:09.7 Mischa: Yeah, to pass it on to other people.0:35:10.2 Anthony Trucks: I have to. If I don't, then I'm just talking. If I was to sit here and give people all this information and not give them some way to apply it, I have done a massive disservice. I think we have a lot of people in this space that are doing a disservice because all they do is talk. Which means all you do is point the problem out and you inspire and motivate, but then you don't tell them what to do. It's kind of like people leave events and they're, "I'm excited. I'm gonna do this." And they're all gripping the steering wheel, they can't... They go to bed and one day they wake up like, "Where did it go? What do I do now? I don't feel completely inspired. I forgot how I'm supposed to feel, what's the next step?" And then it turns into this, I think, an immediate switch, it turns into, I don't know, sadness, a lack of self-esteem because I'm like, "Man, I didn't even do anything. I suck." And now it's even worse.0:36:00.5 Mischa: Yeah, it's like that emotional roller coaster, right? The one that... Yeah, I get that.0:36:05.2 Anthony Trucks: Yeah. I'll inspire you, but I'm gonna be very clear. The real motivation comes from “can you get up in the morning and do something?” And it's like that will come from, did you do it? Did you take an action? Because the moment I can give someone a guiding point and then they go execute on it, they feel amazing. It's palpable. You can't take it from them. That person is the one that's gonna get up every day because they're looking forward to that feeling. It's not how I yelled at them or that video that I made that was super cool with great drone shots. That's alright, but the thing is “is did you do something with your life that I guided you to do yourself so you created the pride that you get to keep”?0:36:42.6 Mischa: Anthony, that's beautiful. I think that that is a great place to end this section. Don't forget, we're gonna do another interview, but I just wanna say quick to everybody watching and listening to Anthony and I, if this was fantastic and you want to get more of what Anthony has to offer and see more, upgrade to the All-access pass for the bonus interview because Anthony and I are going to go even deeper. And I have a few more amazing questions and I'm gonna go let you pick what we wanna talk about. Before we end this section, is there anything that you think we missed or you wanted to say before we stop this bit?0:37:27.9 Anthony Trucks: I don't. No. I believe those who wanna be better will go join. There's always this thing that years ago someone explained to me was like, "You wanna make an investment, but you can go and try to invest in a company, right? But the best investment is always in yourself." And those who pay, pay attention, because it's worth more. And if it's worth more, you'll do more with it. So those who are like, "I really wanna commit to doing something great," yeah, go ahead and take that next step because we're gonna get in here in a second and those are the people that can raise their hand and we'll look back years ago and go, "That person is successful." Why? It's not by accident. They took those next steps.0:38:04.1 Mischa: Yeah, thank you so much for that, Anthony. And then again, a quick reminder to everybody, you can go to anthonytrucks.com, click on the, “What's my identity?” Take this test. It is awesome. It helped me. And then you can also book a call, there's a link to book a call with you. So I would encourage anybody, if they don't upgrade and see the next section, to at least click on anthonytrucks.com and take the identity type quiz.[music]——————-
It's a bit ironic that I used my iPad to listen to a book about digital minimalism. The book Digital Minimalism is by Cal Newport who is also the author of Deep Work. He's an MIT educated computer scientist who believes that for most people, use of social media is an addiction that is ruining our ability to connect as a society. Newport reminds us that social media companies want to capture as much of our attention as possible – and at all costs. He tells us to refrain from “likes”, put our devices away when we are not using them for work, to embrace solitude and find other enjoyable hobbies. As someone who embraced Digital Detox in the workplace, I agree with much of what Newport says. I was traveling while listening to this book and I took the time to observe other travelers in the airport. Virtually no one was having a conversation. When people were talking to each other, at least one of them was simultaneously checking their phone. Newport provides some tips on how to digitally declutter – but truly, we know what to do. The book is a good reminder that there are many other things we can do with our time that are more meaningful than posting on Facebook. If you are on digital overload, download a copy of Digital Minimalism, at least it will keep you from checking Facebook for a while.

I've quit many addictive compulsive behaviors in my life. Including drinking, drugging, and gambling. And I definitely had a case of workaholism. And these days as I build an online business...on my days of weakness where I think, "if I could just work more". I'm like, “Yeah. No. You can't."

Now, in other words, a person that had been crippled with alcoholism and not being able to stop drinking, and it was physically killing him and destroying his relationships. And, uh, he embraces the program, the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and, you know, ends up where seemingly he couldn't drink again, even if he wanted to. And I'm going to relate that to working a lot. Seemingly I couldn't work again a lot, even if I wanted to. And we could say call that alcohol, uh, workaholism. So, uh, you know, I've had an opportunity in my life to clean up lots of, uh, addictive compulsive behaviors. So quit drinking. Um, a long time ago, decades ago, 35 years ago, as of this recording and I am not here representing Alcoholics Anonymous.Mischa Z: 01:34 So let's just get that clear. Um, I also got to quit drugs. I also got to quit gambling and I definitely had a case of yeah, workaholism. I think you could call it a workaholism when I was in sales, you know, my quest for success, financial success for, you know, notoriety you with, with it being number one, within whatever company I was in. Um, perhaps I worked an inordinate amount inordinate, too much. How's that to the detriment of family, to the detriment of relationships, to the detriment of, um, my physical health, maybe. Um, definitely. Uh, but, and I'm not saying anybody should or should not want to work that much or. Hey, somebody is so inspired to work, create whatever, you know, I'm not here to judge that or say what that amount is. I will say that, you know, the pattern I was in with work needing to achieve, needing to make X amount of money needing to, uh, do these kinds of things I would throw surfing in there as well.Mischa Z: 03:26 Um, but anyway, um, it was interesting because as I think about it, and as I record this, I was really good about taking weekends off work-wise I was really good about, um, not bringing the work home. It's just, I would leave really early in the morning and, uh, perhaps, you know, get home. I tried not to, to, to work 18 hour days, let's say it definitely. Some people will absolutely work from home work on the weekends or these sorts of things. I'm dating myself as well because not many of us were working from home as much as we are today. And the recent COVID pandemic has escalated that.Mischa Z: 04:23 But I mean to say, is that when I'm done working, I'm done working, but my routine had become this. I would, I would, you know, exit the house very early, so I could surf and maybe that's six in the morning surfing and then work for the two priorities and, and, you know, I would, so what would happen? And then on the weekends, it was all about surfing and Mischa time. And, and then, you know, I, I was working so much in producing so much in having success that I started putting on realistic expectations on Dawn, my wife, you know. I'm the producer and this sort of arrogant attitude look what I'm doing for the house, paying the bills. Therefore I don't need to provide perhaps other emotional support and stuff like that. I dunno. It's very interesting. Uh, just, just know that, you know. That drive for being number one that drive for ultimate success that drive for making a lot of money. You know, especially when I was in mortgages was there, I wanted to be number one at Wells Fargo. I wantedSpeaker 2: 05:57 that notoriety and the financial fulfillment of that. And so then, you know, it came to quitting the mortgage business and staying home with my two boys being a stay at home ish dad. So I did that back in 2016. I think it was when I finally quit mortgages. Um, maybe it was 2017. I've sort of lost track. I need to figure out that exact timeline. I think it was 2016. It's definitely, yeah, it must be five years by now, again, as I record this. But as I'm in the 2CCX, as I'm creating these online, working on creating an online business and doing all this stuff. I, I couldn't put in 12 hour days seemingly if I wanted to. Like that lack of balance and the capacity to, to go out of balance has been stripped from me. I couldn't go back to workaholism seemingly even if I wanted to.Speaker 2: 07:26 And sometimes, you know, the drive to have followers and do all this stuff and build this business and make it happen fast and all these things and the illusion of more time, more time spent will help accelerate that process. You know, I can, I can think that I want that, but I can't literally physically do it, which is pretty freaking cool. So on my days of weakness where I'm like, if I could just work more, I'm like, "yeah, no, you can't." I literally can't work more than the, you know what, as I've said before, I'm, I'm maybe putting in five or six hours, but it's good solid hours, but I seemingly couldn't do more even if I wanted to. So anyway, there you go. Um, love that, uh, I'm done have a good day peace out.
More on Webster's definition of Salvation. And thoughts from A Course In Miracles. . Am I willing to embrace new thoughts and concepts? Am I willing to see somebody differently? Or am I going to be contemptuous and stubborn in my thought process? The more I can see people as simply good and spirit and part of the infinite mind... Then the side benefit of that is I get to see that in myself and my concept of myself changes.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

Part one I was rolling so good that it ended up, um, taking me a good 10 minutes. So quick salvation 1). a. Deliverance from the power and the effects of sin. B: the agent, or means that affect salvation. See Christian science: the realization of the supremacy of infinite mind over all bringing with it, the destruction of the illusion of sin sickness and death. And that's capital I infant capital and mind implication God. Two: Liberation from ignorance or illusion. 3. A. A preservation from destruction or, or failure. 3 B deliverance from danger or difficulty.Mischa Z: 01:16 And here is... I'm going to paraphrase sentence 3.3. By focusing on the good in the people around us, or perhaps that we see the body grows decreasingly...The body grows decreasingly persistent in your sight and will at length be seen as little more than just a shadow circling around the good. By focusing upon the good in your brother, your neighbor, your sister, a politician, you don't like, um, whoever insert person there, the body grows decreasingly, decreasingly persistent in your sight. And will it length be seen as little more than just a shadow circling around the good. And I love that concept. So, um, people that perhaps I run into all the time or a loved one or a, an enemy, if I can focus on the good, we'll start to see more of the God within them, their spirit, and I'll be less fixated on their body and the illusion that they're their body.Mischa Z: 02:44 And I guess we're all going to need to take the leap that, um, we're more than our bodies and people who are listening. Hopefully you're like, yeah, I'm tired of seeing people just as, as a physical thing. Like I want to stop judging. I want to grow past judging, grow past, you know, resentment. Um, and I believe judgment judging good or bad, I would say or good. Cause it's easy to be like I judge good. Well, judging is judging. Um, the judgment could be perhaps low grade resentment. Oftentimes anyhow, like we want to see people as beautiful spirit. Whether you believe that we're souls are all one spirit. Just a little knock of the one spirit. Um, have faith in the person who is next to us or who we see, this is a sentence five.one so that your fearful concept of yourself may change. And so that's the next thing is if we can see people the good in people, and this is, I like this for me, right? This could be a different experience for you, but the more I can see people as just good and spirit and part of the infinite mind. Um, then I, the side benefit of that is I get to see that in myself and my concept of myself changes.Mischa Z: 04:29 Here's the kicker and all five sentence five by three. And all this shift requires that you be willing that this happy change occur no more than this. As asked all that this shift requires it is that you be willing that this happy change occur. And I am more and more seeing like there's all these thoughts and concepts that can be good, that are good and liberating and, and challenge my thinking of the norm. And challenge my illusions of what I think are important. And am I willing to embrace new thoughts and concepts and I willing to see this happy, or am I willing to, let's say, and all this shift requires is that you'd be willing that this happy change occur. Yeah. So am I willing, are you willing? I think that's such a great question. And so many circumstances, am I willing to see somebody differently?Mischa Z: 05:42 So great question again, it's easy to point to politicians, although the politics seems to be really, but nine right now. So maybe I could point to something else, but I think you get what I'm saying. If there's, you know, a place or thing out there, am I willing to see them differently or am I going to be contemptuous and stubborn in my thought process? And um, so great question. Here's the next. I give my next point that I love from this section of A Course In Miracles. I give my concept of myself to God that I may offer peace. So I've got this concept of myself that oftentimes can be diluted or is, you know, there's this whole meaning of life thing and all this stuff that I get to embrace more as they get older and, and, and things. Um, and am I willing to release the concept of myself? Just be like, you know what, and it goes on to, to, to, to, to say like, it's this concept of ourselves that we put between ourselves and the people that we see. And so can I let go of that concept of myself, give it to God or whatever you want to call it, just be free of it so that I can look on everything that I see, everyone that I come across brand new without judgment, not painted by what I think. I know.Mischa Z: 07:32 So it goes on here. Sentence 13.4. It cannot judge me. I cannot judge because I, I do not know. And recognizing this, I merely asked what is the meaning of what I behold, I love that I'm going to try that. What is the meaning of what I behold? So as I walk out today, I'm about to go shopping at trader Joe's and a couple other spots. I'll probably swing by target perhaps, but, um, I need to get some ibuprofen ibuprofen. My two jars that I bought at Kirkland 10 years ago are finally are finally used up. But anyway, you know, I'm going to bump into people and how I perceive myself, my age, my maleness, my singleness, my dadness my, all this stuff. Right? All these things. What if I was free of all that? And I could just see somebody and be like, what, what is it?Mischa Z: 08:47 What is the meaning of what I behold? So interesting. Interesting. Um, question. And I wrote down, I give the concept of myself to you, God, because I'm going to play with this idea and hopefully I'll play with this and report back a couple other quick sentences. What is temptation, but the wish to stay in hell and misery. Think about that one. That's a good one. What is temptation? But the wish to stay in hell and misery sentence, a paragraph 10 sentence, one paragraph 11, sentence five. This is the Savior's vision that I see my innocence and all I look upon and see my own salvation everywhere. Next sentence. I hold no concept of myself, between my calm and open eyes and what I see. I bring the light to what I look upon that I may see it as it really is. Then the next sentence, 13.4. I cannot judge because it does not. It cannot judge because it does not know any me and lessons and recognizing this, it merely asks what is the meaning of what I behold. I'm going to go try and do that. Be free of judgment. Not know and ask what is, what am I looking at here? God. All right. Love that everybody have a good day. Okay.
I go ahead and give Webster Dictionary's definition of "Salvation", which is super juicy and leads to great conversation. Do Christian Scientists avoid the doctor because they believe god is going to cure them? Or is it something more alluring? And I leave you with a question.

Got my mind going so much. So of course, in miracles, chapter 31, the final vision, section seven, the Savior's vision, it's actually on page 662 on the book that I have. And, uh, A Course In Miracles, combined volume. So I have never been a church guy in, um, through my life when I was a kid, I went to church a couple of times that. I, I I'm telling you the story because of the contempt or the judgment or the, yeah. The contempt that comes up when I hear certain words. And, uh, because the ego is strong in me. And, um, when I talk about this stuff, this is not to knock anybody who loves church and, you know, loves whatever. How God is being, uh, you know, however God's manifesting through their church. Awesome. I tend to go to recovery meetings to find connection to source and stuff like that.Mischa Z: 01:39 And I know a lot of people in recovery also go to church and stuff like that. So anyway, I probably didn't even need to talk about all of that, but just know that I've never been a church guy too much contempt. The dogma freaks me out. And, um, I'm sure the dogma of the recovery groups that I go to freaks other people out as well. So we're all leaning into our own dogma, but like the word savior, for example, historically, that would, you know, uh, would, uh, shut my mind down. I'd be like, savior heck with that, save your, shave your savior. But now the fact that I can say it on this podcast and that I can read content that has that word in it that's growth for me, perhaps the next time, I won't need to say this disclaimer, which would be ultimate growth.Mischa Z: 02:52 This section talks about salvation and judgment, a bunch and salvation as, so it's such an interesting concept. When I hear that salvation, it susses out that contempt in me, um, it shines that light of contempt on me. And honestly, I don't even really know where it came from or manifested from. Like I didn't really ever have a bad experience in church growing up. I, my parents definitely were not church goers. As in my youth. I went to church a couple of times with various friends. And I never really gripped me enough that I wanted to go back, but I did like the, the fellowship and, and such so anyhow salvation. So I was like, let's look up the word salvation as according to, to Webster. And the point of this is like, do I want salvation or don't I would, I rather hold the word salvation in contempt, therefore I don't want salvation or is salvation something to be wanted.Mischa Z: 04:16 So I went ahead and looked up salvation and Webster and definition two as what I'm going to start with because that's, I think you'll see that heck yes, I want salvation. I do. When I read number two. Liberation from ignorance or illusion. At this point in my life, I do want liberation from ignorance or illusion and/or illusion. Back in the day I did , I liked the illusions that I embraced and they served me. I liked the ignorance. Ignorance has definitely been bliss, blessed in my life over the years. However, when the veil of ignorance can be cracked, then you're kind of hosed. So yes, indeed. I do want ignorant. Uh, I do want, uh, salvation, according to definition, Webster two: liberation from ignorance or illusion. Number three, definition, three, a preservation from destruction or failure preservation from destruction or failure. Well, of course I might want some salvation there, deliverance from danger or difficulty deliverance from danger or difficulty. Let's go with 1) a. This is where it starts to get a little wonky for me. Deliverance from the power and the effects of sin. Now, historically, that definitely would have been a, uh, my mind would've started to shut down a little bit close off to these ideas. But today I love this idea deliverance from the power and effects of sin.Mischa Z: 06:24 And yeah, I would like that. I like the idea that there is no saying that that is an illusion and, and some of the things that come with that. One B the agent, or means that affect salvation, or it could be effects the agent, or means that affect salvation. C 1) c., I kind of like this one, Christian science: the realization of the supremacy of capital. I infinite capital M mind over all bringing with it, the destruction of the illusion of sin sickness and death. The realization of the supremacy of infinite mind over all bringing with it, the destruction of the illusion of sin sickness and death.Mischa Z: 07:26 And if we believe we are our bodies, I am my body. The body is the be all end, all of my existence, which may or may not be true. But if I hold strong to that, then I am going to believe in sickness because sickness ultimately, and death ends the body. And I, I, this is what comes to mind when I think of Christian science and it, and that this definition gives me a new appreciation of Christian Scientists. And that's that I, but if I, and I'm talking a bit out of ignorance here, but from what I understand, a Christian Scientists, they are not big into traditional Western medicine. Like if they get sick cancer or some such thing, from what I understand, a Christian Scientist would pray or do these things and, and would avoid say getting treatment for cancer. Now, when I hear people talk about that, somebody who's not a Christian Scientist, and they hear somebody say that they say a Christian scientist naive really believes that if they get cancer, they turn to God. They pray to God. And they believe that God will heal their sickness like the physical sickness, the cancer itself. And I would challenge that line of thinking that a Christian scientist says, Hey, I'm not my body. And that I'm much more in that. I'm part of this. What is it, uh, this, um, infinite mind.Mischa Z: 09:22 And so there's no need to heal from the sickness because this blip of time that we're represented by a body is an illusion. So there's no need to, like, I don't care if I die in other words, or I'll trust in God that if the cancer is meant to go away, it'll go away. If the cancer is meant to, end the usefulness of my body on this planet. So be it. And I love that thought. I love the thought of being so convicted that there's more going on than just our bodies that you're like, yeah, it's all good. Like there's no need to stress about the sickness or the short-term illusory pain that I'm going to feel.Mischa Z: 10:13 Cause I'm more than my body. I'm part of the infinite mind. So sin sickness and death are an illusion. I'm not going to be die. I'm just going to be perhaps liberated from this current way that I relate to the planet. I believe that, um, I'm not going to get a talk about judgment. I'll have to save that for the next episode, because I think that I hit a good, um, at least eight to 10 minutes, love to all. And, uh, I'm down for salvation. What I'm trying to tell you is today I choose. Yes. Salvation sounds good. Why not? And I ask you, are you willing to embrace the concept of salvation? Peace out, have a good day.

I've got all sorts of other cool stuff. There. Books, podcast tech, I'm going to be building it out with more things in the future stuff that helps me thrive in life. That was not the purpose of this episode. However, we're encouraged to make offers, make an offer. So there you go. I'm making you an offer. Enjoy these episodes that I put out, learn with me, grow with me, laugh with me, but at the same time, go by the fun toys that I'm telling you about. So if you haven't bought, purchased the Shure MV88 mic yet, go purchase it. Now um, oh my gosh. I'm having, it's fun. Getting back on track. I believe a few episodes ago, perhaps three or four, I was talking about how it was getting back on track.Mischa Z: 01:10 Um, I'd gone camping. My brother had been to town and, and, um, I was pretty blown out after the summit. So I was, I was having a hard time finding focus in the moment and it starting to fall back in place one day at a time as I do the next indicated step. So I've got an email list that came from, uh, the summit. And some of you listeners may be part of that email list if you are. Hello. So glad to have you on board. Thank you for listening and partaking and being on this awesome journey with me. And you can also send me an email anytime at email@example.com. Say hi, check in, ask me questions, tell me what you like, what you don't like, whatever. Oh, go leave me a five-star review on the apple podcast. Anyhow. So I'm, I am, uh, tasked to email my list.Mischa Z: 02:24 And one of the programs that can automate that it's called Active Campaign and you can do all of these super cool flows. So as people log into the summit and register, they enter one flow and then if they buy the VIP, they're pushed over to another flow. And then if you, you know, do this, you're pushed over to another flow. And ultimately I want you in the nurture campaign flow and where I can add value to your life and sell you things and we can interact and all this fun stuff. And I'd hired Andrea, Andrea, Peer, you can Google her Facebook her. She's super gifted at what she does. She was the tech who, who helped me build out the summit. Andrea, if you're listening, love you, thank you so much for being part of my team and helping me. Um, but she had... Porsche Cayenne just went by.Mischa Z: 03:40 I had to pause it because he was very excited to get around that corner and stomp on it as he went by. I might too, if I had a shiny black Cayenne, which reminds me of a funny story, I almost did buy a shiny black cayenne turbo back in the day. This is about eight years ago, nine years ago. I don't know. I, I, I, I've never been a super big car guy and God bless you. If you are. Some people love their cars. I've been more of having fun with my house. I'm more of a house guy, which I think I learned from my dad, but I was buying that Cayenne Turbo, which is a ridiculously cool car. And for whatever reason, I was going to lease it. And, uh, we worked it out and have the payment and this and that. And the deal was pretty much done and I was happy with everything. And then they went and pulled my credit and my credit score wasn't, at the time, quite good enough to qualify for the amazing payment.Mischa Z: 05:01 So the deal fell apart. I came back to my census and it was like, I don't need a Porsche Cayenne. And again, if you have one, God bless you. If you have love your cars, love them. I had, uh, I've had some, whatever. Anyway, distracted. Now I barely ever drive. So I have a Ford, like a 2001, a pick em up truck, my son Waylon. I had that nice Mazda CX9 instead of buying the Porsche Cayenne. And I bought the, the CX9 with all the trimmings, and, all the fun stuff, the nav, all the goodies. And, uh, a year or so ago, my son was like, "I want the shiny car". And I was like, you know what? You can have the shiny car. I'll take the raggedy old truckSpeaker 2: 05:58 So Waylon has the shiny car I have the raggedy old truck and, oh, it just makes me think of home Jackson, Wyoming, my roots. Such a weird thing. Anyhow, thank you for the diversion. So Active Campaign, I'm finally catching up enough where I can play with Active Campaign myself, and it's taken me a while to get to this point, but here's the point. Um, I have people in the nurture flow and when somebody new...cause randomly people are coming into the summit. And still. And the summit is evergreen, which means people can still register for the Tools For A Good Life Summit, go check it out. If you haven't registered and watched any of the speakers. And then they, you can, you can, anybody who does that today, they get into the, into the evergreen flow, which is isn't an email flow, which, you know, releases the speakers day one day, two day three, cetera.Speaker 2: 07:15 They get 120 hours of free access to the, to the non VIP, um, interviews and all that. But after that, they, I needed the, the tag to get them into the nurture campaign. And, and I actually figured it out today and it felt so good. And that is part of the tech that I love playing with. So I love the email follow-up systems and all that kind of stuff. It's just so cool how you can do all that. And you know, the toys and the tech to do that now or so awesome. And visually they're super cool. And, you know, they show you that the, the flows and the trees and all that. And so I was able to, I'd had a couple of new people in the queue that were stuck in the evergreen queue. Sorry about the language. If you're not tracking me, but I needed to bump them over to the nurture path flow. And I quickly figured out how to add that tag, and it worked, and that's so fun and it's fun having fun, I guess that's my point. It's, um, I'm past a little bit of the overwhelm, still a slight overwhelm state, but having fun versus just like survival. Anyway, that's what I've got for you. Love to all have a great day. Go chase some dreams. Go try new things, learn new stuff. Take messy action. Um, get overwhelmed. Yeah. Life is good. Peace out.
I had a really funny thought. Russell Brunson is my mentor and I've never met him. Who knows if I'll ever meet him. And, and he wouldn't be able to pluck me out of a picture or a crowd. Just like the people I used to make fun of. Who's mentor's and guru's are over in India. They've never actually met them. And half of them have been dead for decades. Life is full of Irony now isn't it?Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

Well, I had a really funny thought as I was listening to the Russell Brunson Marketing Secrets Podcast recently. And you know, I'm in Russell,Brunson's 2CCX coaching program. His high end coaching program. I am a click funnels member. So I use his software to host the funnels and the webpages. Many of the webpages that I have that are about me. And Russell Brunson in effect, I was thinking about it like, he's my mentor, right? He is my mentor Russell Brunson's my mentor. And I thought, that's the funniest gosh, darn thing, because I have never met him. Who knows if I'll ever meet him. And, and he wouldn't be able to pluck me out of a, out of a crowd or a picture. And I think that that is so funny and so weird and so abstract. Because I'm like, well, he kind of is my mentor, this illusory mentor.Mischa Z: 01:41 And I had a, I had this guy Ken, who was a, my spiritual mentor for many years, 15, 16 years. And he finally passed away and Ken was my spiritual mentor. Mentor for free and, and, you know, very influential in my life. And one of the things he was telling me over the years was was, Hey, you should find a business mentor. You should find a business mentor. And, uh, oh, here comes the wind. This is going to be very windy. I need a wind screen for my phone. Oh, by the way, I'm walking through the Encinitas community park and now hitting the road. And I'm recording on my phone with my MV88 mic, which you should go by off of my resources page, www.belove.media/resources. But... I am the crazy one. I am the crazy guy talking into his phone.Mischa Z: 02:55 I'm the crazy homeless guy today. And the Encinitas community park. As I record this, it's about 5:30 ish, but it is busy, busy with lots of families, lots of kids, lots of football programs, lots of little kids at the park, lots of kids playing soccer, all the stuff. lots of people walking their dogs. Plenty of opportunities for me to feel in secure design, walking and recording with my Shure, Shure. S H U R E MV88, mic, which you can go by off of the show notes of this podcast episode and you should buy it because it's an awesome toy and you can record whatever's high quality recordings of whatever's rattling through your melon. So there's two ideas back to the mentor thing. And Ken telling me, I should have a mentor and being I've been in recovery for a majority of my life.Mischa Z: 04:12 What two-thirds of my life now, where the idea of mentorship is it's free. Um, you know, you, you, as, uh, as a recovery mentor, oftentimes it's, it's free and that 12 step programs and things so subconsciously or consciously, depending on any given moment, I've had an idea that it should be free. Now I did have a home loan mentor. Darren Riley love you, Darren, if you happened to be listening to this, Darren Riley taught me so much about home loans and was so influential and was a springboard for me for massive success and really how to do that business, right. And, and how to thrive. And, and all of these things. Now, I didn't literally pay him, but I worked for him for a couple of years. And he got, you know, a percentage of, of all the business that I did. And year one, it was a great deal for me, for me, because I took advantage of his knowledge and his, um, expertise and all that, and just was constantly, you know, taking advantage of that relationship.Mischa Z: 05:43 And I say taking advantage of that, I mean, you know, utilizing that relationship in a good way. And so he was overworked and underpaid year one of the mentorship. And then you're too, when I was effectively, well up to speed and just cranking away, I was a very quick learner and, uh, many things came together for me at that time. Um, you know, he was, his shoulder started hurting from stacking the money. That's how I like to say that. So anyway, uh, years later, you know. Ken, You should get a business mentor as I was looking for new ventures. And so I had it in my idea, you know, for free. And then also that you've got to know the guy or gal you've got to know the person. And so it makes me think about the other funny thought was like, you'll hear people who talk about, oh, my guru, my guru, my guru.Mischa Z: 06:52 And, and so you could say, oh, when was the last time you met your guru or, had coffee with them? Or talk to them? And they're like, oh, well, they're dead. You know, I talked to them in spirit or, well, I've never actually met them. They're, uh, they're Indian. And, you know, they're an avatar over in India or something like that. And so the way you're, you're oftentimes in those relationships, the way you're. It's a third party relationship, two or three degrees of separation. So either that, that spiritual person is dead. And so you're, you're getting to take advantage of that relationship by one of their, the dead person's old students, right? So that, that student, you know, is now teaching others. And by default, the dead guru is now the new students guru. Um, or, you know, you've got your Yogi who's over there in India.Mischa Z: 08:02 And, uh, you know, he, he was a teacher to somebody. Somebody who is now in the states and, and mentoring new yoga people, or what have you. And so again, by two degrees, or is that one degree of separation, two degrees of separation, the person you've never met is now your mentor. And, oh my gosh, I used to think that was the funniest thing ever. And now, honestly, I don't know if I'm going to publish this episode because it's just such an abstract, weird concept for me. But Hey, I'm paying for a high-end coaching program. And, uh, so which is awesome, not complaining, super stoked about it.Mischa Z: 08:54 Like it's been money well, well, well, well invested. And in hindsight, I would've taken advantage of high end coaching programs earlier in my life. Like really invested in myself in that regard. Um, but B it's two degrees of separation that Russell Brunson is my mentor. So one of Russell Brunson's coaches is my coach. His name is Vince Green. And Vince love you if you are happening to listen to this episode. But, uh, then says so good. And here's my, whatever it is, that one degree or two degrees of separation that Russell Brunson as my mentor. So funny life is good. Got to have fun, peace out.
The Field Guide to Particle Physics https://pasayten.org/the-field-guide-to-particle-physics©2021 The Pasayten Institute cc by-sa-4.0The definitive resource for all data in particle physics is the Particle Data Group: https://pdg.lbl.gov.The Pasayten Institute is on a mission to build and share physics knowledge, without barriers! Get in touch.The Higgs BosonAs far as we know, there is no other particle like the Higgs Boson, but there probably should be.The Higgs is a difficult particle to describe because it almost always manifests in ways that don't resemble particle behavior. The relationship between the photon and magnetic fields comes to mind. We sometimes call the Higgs' amorphous presence the Higgs “field”.Just as magnetic fields can permeate space, so too does the field of the Higgs. Unlike a magnetic field, which usually requires some physical source - like a collection of iron atoms in a refrigerator magnet or a spinning particle like the neutron - the Higgs field is naturally always set to “on”.Every once in a while, a disturbance in that field appears as a particle, the Higgs Boson.When the Higgs does present as a particle, it's fairly heavy. With a mass of 125 GeV, it's one of the heaviest elementary particles around. Like many other heavy particles, the Higgs is unstable. It decays quickly, most often to a quark/antiquark pair, but has a lot of other options. It's mean lifetime is somewhere near 0.0000000000000000000001 = 10^−22 seconds. That is much longer than the W or Z bosons, but still far too fast for a human to have an intuition for.The Higgs does not have an electric charge. Or any charge, practically speaking. Although it does interact with the electromagnetic and weak forces. It's interactions with matter are more intricate.The field of the Higgs interacts with the quarks and the leptons, like the electron and its neutrino. Less like a field and more of a swamp, the Higgs field slows those particles down quite a bit. The added resistance to motion through the Higgs field is something we've come to call mass.In this way, the Higgs field give a tiny mass to many of the elementary particles. A related - but different - effect gives the mass to the W and Z bosons as well.But do not be fooled! The mass endowed by the Higgs mechanism has almost nothing to do with the mass we experience in daily life. Virtually all of that mass comes from interplay of quarks, gluons and the subnuclear goo that surrounds quarks inside of protons and neutrons.The Higgs Boson - the particle excitation of this field - can be found whenever the particles it gives mass to are colliding at high speeds. It's part of the shrapnel, if you like. The Higgs field and its associated boson is surely the odd duck of the subnuclear zoo. There are many questions physicists are still pondering about its nature, such as its mass and outsized role in the universe. One important question seems to be: why is there only one such field? Are there other fields out there, also switched “on” and having some impact on our history, or even our day to day lives? Models that describe the Big Bang and the very earliest moments of our universe - now a precision science - suggest that there should be.

Welcome, Donnie.0:00:23.1 Donnie Dee: Well, welcome to you. Thanks for having me.0:00:25.4 Mischa Z: Indeed, indeed. And then before we get started here, I'm gonna read your bio really quick, if that's okay.0:00:30.7 Donnie Dee: Absolutely.0:00:31.6 Mischa Z: Alright, fantastic. Donnie Dee joined the San Diego Rescue Mission as President/CEO, mid-July, 2017. Anniversary is coming up or you just hit it?0:00:43.3 Donnie Dee: This week, yeah. Today, as a matter of fact.0:00:46.1 Mischa Z: Oh, wow.0:00:46.6 Donnie Dee: Yeah, four years ago today.0:00:48.5 Mischa Z: Oh, fantastic. Growing up in Kansas City, sports have always been important to Dee. He played football and basketball for Oak Park High School and was a four-year letterman in football at the University of Tulsa, graduating from there in 1988 with a business management degree. He was then drafted by the Indianapolis Colts and played in the NFL for two and a half years for the Colts and Seahawks. And then quick, was that an injury or you just... Go ahead.0:01:22.5 Donnie Dee: I did finish with an injury. I actually played for another team but just never really felt right, and so, yeah, I would say it was an injury that ended my career.0:01:32.4 Mischa Z: Yeah, yeah, yeah. And was that a heavy moment?0:01:37.5 Donnie Dee: It was. You dream your whole life about playing a sport like that, and so for it to come down and you did not have a lot of control over how it ends is a little disappointing and a heavy thing to process. You play football your whole life and then for some of us, it just comes to an abrupt ending. It takes a little while to get used to.0:01:56.2 Mischa Z: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. And I'm guessing, and we can get into this in a minute, but your faith was not only tested but enriched and really helped you through that time?0:02:06.9 Donnie Dee: 100%. I think you find out what's most important and what you really value. And look, at the end of the day, football's a game, it can't be the most important thing in your life, and it's a game and it's why they call it a game. And so I think I was able to make the transition.0:02:23.4 Mischa Z: Yeah, what a great lesson too and I think what a great thing or analogy, or whatever that... For me, I just hear that and I'm like, "Yeah, how much stuff do I put attachment on where it's just money or it's just this or just that when really... " I think is the lesson there.0:02:42.8 Donnie Dee: Well, yeah, and it's easy to do because what our priorities are end up being the things that we chase and we center our whole life around, but what happens if we have the wrong priorities? Well, then we have established a life that isn't very deep, doesn't have a lot of substance, and those things always... You end up finding that out as time goes on that, "Hey, maybe this isn't as big a deal I thought it was." And that was really my relation with football. I went to University of Tulsa and football was the most important thing in my life. And then I got hurt in college and realized that, "Look, this can give you a lot of opportunities but it can't be the most important thing in your life 'cause it's gonna let you down eventually."0:03:26.0 Mischa Z: Yeah, and I'm thinking too, I bet from that part of the country you grew up in and just... That was probably your destiny to a certain extent. That's the lifestyle...0:03:38.8 Donnie Dee: Well, yeah, I think sports is a really big deal in the Midwest. Football is an enormous thing in Oklahoma. But even for me personally, my father was a professional basketball player for the Indiana Pacers and he won an actual gold medal, which I think is one of the most difficult accomplishments in all of sports, is winning a gold medal in the 1968 Olympics playing basketball. And so, yeah, I would say it was very much my destiny. I wanted to be an athlete, I wanted to accomplish what my dad had accomplished, I wanted to make him proud. I never imagined not being an athlete and I put that pressure on myself.0:04:14.6 Mischa Z: Yeah, I will say too, for anybody younger, back in the day... So when your father went to play basketball in the Olympics, that was amateurs. There was no Michael Jordan, no LeBron James showing up, that was strictly amateur class.0:04:32.6 Donnie Dee: These are all college guys playing against other countries and they were the best in the world, they were the best in the world. It has changed and now we've got pros playing against pros in the Olympics.0:04:42.9 Mischa Z: Yeah, I think that's cool. I think I'm even more excited now to have you on the summit because I think, to have your identity in sports that much or as a pro football player and to have those cracks start to happen in college and then perhaps ultimately in the NFL, that it's such a powerful testament to what we're offering. How do we make it through those rough parts of life when our identity is shattered a little bit? So anyway, yeah, let me finish up here and thank you for indulging those questions. So here we are. Dee began his career in 1990 with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Colorado. Dee went on to become COO or Chief Operating Officer of the FCA for five years before relaunching the Tom Landry Associates, a major donor program at FCA. Again, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Dee is married to his college sweetheart, Jackie, who was also a college athlete. They have two grown children, Johnny, who's now 28 and about to get married, right?0:06:00.7 Donnie Dee: That's correct.0:06:01.7 Mischa Z: Yeah, very exciting, congratulations. And Jennifer, 25, who both played college basketball at USD and UCI, respectively. If I'd quickly touched on a... And again, for any of the younger people, Tom Landry, he was the coach... He was the man in football for a few decades, perhaps.0:06:23.0 Donnie Dee: Very successful coach, went to the playoffs 23 years in a row, still has, I think, that record, and Bill Belichick's about to break it or maybe he was about to break it before last year because I don't think he went to the... I don't think the Patriots went to the playoffs last year, but Tom Landry is a very successful coach. He wasn't our founder but he got involved very early on with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and really put us on the map. I think once he got involved and used FCA as his platform to share his thing, I think our ministry really exploded when I was with FCA, and I'm certainly thankful for his life and his leadership.0:07:01.0 Mischa Z: Yeah, and you had a chance to interact a little bit with Tom Landry?0:07:05.3 Donnie Dee: I did. We had an annual giving campaign that people would give $10,000 or more in a year in honor of Tom Landry and that was used for local field ministry to work with coaches and athletes at the local level.0:07:22.2 Mischa Z: I wanted to touch really quick before we get to the question and the meat of the summit question, to you, is that... Clearly, it's evident to me through your history and what you do that your faith is very important to you and it's been a very powerful part of your life, yeah?0:07:42.1 Donnie Dee: Yeah, it is and it has been, and I think it always will be. I didn't grow up in a Christian home, didn't grow up in the church, and so really just trying to figure out life by myself. I'm from a broken home, my father was an alcoholic, and so I think that, in many ways, I was gonna follow in his footsteps, not only athletically but also socially. I think I was destined to just be an alcoholic and to probably bounce around from relationship to relationship. And it wasn't until I got to college that I saw some other athletes that lived out their faith and that became inspirational for me and interesting to me that I asked questions. I think, in the end, I just began to embrace my faith and allow God to have a role in my life, and to have this daily relationship where I get a chance to strengthen my faith and try to be all that God has called me to be.0:08:39.4 Mischa Z: It's beautiful. So your interest and that nurturing in your college years, that's what led you to, obviously, your work in things like the San Diego Rescue Mission, yes?0:08:55.8 Donnie Dee: 100%. Yeah, I think faith and really beginning to understand the God of the Bible and really what the scripture teaches really compels you to wanna make a difference in the world and to wanna see other people not just as humans at different stages and different statuses in life but to begin to see them as God's creation and that whether you're homeless or whether you have billions that we're really all the same in terms of God's eyes and he calls upon us that have been given much to help those that maybe aren't as privileged or haven't been given as much, and I just think that's a great way to live your life. And I've seen so many that have gone before me that lived their lives that way and it really challenged me to embrace that.0:09:38.9 Mischa Z: Yeah, fantastic. I think my relationship with source or a higher power, or God, as you say, has been more from a recovery lens, like a traditional 12-step, that was my entry point, but I'd love...0:09:55.3 Donnie Dee: That's good.0:09:56.1 Mischa Z: Yeah, yeah. I'm excited for your viewpoint. [laughter] And what I wanna touch on here too is service. So you are CEO and President of the San Diego Rescue Mission. So the San Diego Rescue Mission is feet on the street, helping people, yeah?0:10:22.0 Donnie Dee: That's correct. Yeah, we have a large facility downtown. It's an old hospital. I have 366 beds, 60 of those beds are used for emergency shelter use overnight, women and children only, and they stay there one night at a time, two nights at a time. The other 300 beds are used for what I believe to be the number one solution for homelessness and that is rehabilitation. You understand that, you understand the power of a program, you understand the power of accountability and direction, and support 'cause you've obviously overcome some things in your own life. And we have people that come to us that, yes, circumstantially, they may be homeless but there's other things that are going on in their heart that have led them to this lifestyle of homelessness and we're trying to address what's going on in the heart so that they can overcome and really be free from this challenge of living on the streets. So they live with us for a year. We call them students. The first semester is wellness, the second semester is education, the third semester is job placement and housing. And we tell them on day one, "Give us a year, we'll get you off the streets permanently." And we do that through our rehabilitation program.0:11:33.2 Mischa Z: It's beautiful. I love it. Well, good. I think we've laid the framework for service as a tool for a good life. So I have a question that I'm gonna ask you and I'm gonna lay the scenario and basically, if we think of life as a three-legged stool of relationships, finance, and...0:11:57.9 Donnie Dee: Health.0:12:00.0 Mischa Z: Health. Thank you. [chuckle]0:12:00.3 Donnie Dee: Absolutely. I read the question.0:12:01.9 Mischa Z: That's good. [laughter] I appreciate that, Donnie. Thank you. And then if we think of someone who was successful or is successful and two or three of the legs fall out from under them, so perhaps... So I'll speak for me. I went through divorce, another failed relationship after that, both my parents died in rapid succession, this was all 5 to 10 years ago, career upheaval. And up until that point, success had served me very well. And so pull myself up from my bootstraps, that mentality, that "Fix it. Work your way through it. Sort it out", that was no longer working. [laughter] I needed new tools. [laughter] And so by the grace of God, I got new tools. And so my question to you is, thinking of service to community as a tool, what are the exact next steps you would offer a person like me who is, perhaps, hitting that rough part of life? What are the exact next steps you would offer this person so they know they are headed in the new, right direction that they will have positive momentum towards getting their life back on track?0:13:27.7 Donnie Dee: That's a big question, that's a heavy question, and I don't know that there's an easy answer to that. I can tell you what comes to mind for me and I can tell you what has worked for me. I think the exact next steps really have to do with how you view the world. I think everything starts internally first. I can't be for the world if I'm not first that in myself. I can't impart what I don't possess. And so I think I have to have a philosophy of life. I think I have to have a view of the world that is healthy so that I can begin to see people and see others the way that would allow me to have influence on them.0:14:12.0 Donnie Dee: I think, for me, it starts with gratefulness. I think that so many of us, especially today, in this world feel like we need to play the role of the victim and I think we're losing sight of the amazing Americans that have overcome so much to make a life of themselves and they didn't play the victim. They played the, "I'm gonna get up every day, I'm gonna do the best I can, and I'm grateful for this opportunity." I think thankfulness and having a thankful heart really centers someone to really begin to see their circumstances and to see the world in a way that allows them to take advantage of their opportunities. I think that's the first step, is do you realize how much you have? It's like the guy that said that he was complaining having no shoes until he saw the guy who didn't have any feet. I think you don't have to look far, especially when you live in San Diego, to spend some time in Mexico and you see that it's a whole different world down there.0:15:25.0 Mischa Z: A whole different world, yeah.0:15:26.6 Donnie Dee: We have a lot to be thankful for and I think it starts with that.0:15:32.7 Mischa Z: Let me ask you a question, do you have any sort of things that you do to bring that gratitude forefront in your day?0:15:41.5 Donnie Dee: I do. I start each day in reading and in meditation, specifically reading the Bible and in praying out my faith and just trying to center myself around the opportunities I have for that day. It's easy for me to get out of the bed and to rush into the mission because of the volume of responsibilities that's down here. And we've got 300 people living with us and even during COVID. It's not like we kicked them out. They stayed with us, that's their home for a year. And so just the pressure and the volume of responsibility, and the stress, and the decisions that need to be made. I can't come down to this work everyday without something to give and I gotta have life to give if I'm gonna help somebody that's broken figure out how to take steps in their life. So I can encourage them to be grateful and to be thankful that they've got a place to live even though that in the world's eyes they're probably at the bottom of the...0:16:49.7 Mischa Z: Pecking order.0:16:50.0 Donnie Dee: Probably the bottom of the pecking order. There's a lot to be thankful for. They have a lot to be thankful for. They've got a bed, they've got a safe place, they've got meals. And I can't communicate that to them if I'm not coming from a position of gratefulness and thankfulness. And so, yeah, I think starting each day in just prayer and in reading, and centering myself around what I know to be true is one of the things I practice daily.0:17:14.9 Mischa Z: Fantastic. And I heard you say meditation in there too. Real quick, how much time do you dedicate to that in your morning?0:17:26.0 Donnie Dee: Thirty minutes or so. I read and pray and sometimes I'll listen to a good message but I really just try to carve out before I actually get up. I workout, then I sit out back and read and pray, and then I jump in the shower and grab my stuff, and I hit the road 39 miles south to the San Diego Rescue Mission. So that is in my routine six days a week.0:17:51.8 Mischa Z: Fantastic, thank you. Alright, so number one, start with gratitude, and you gave some great ways to do that. What do we have next? What's after that?0:18:01.6 Donnie Dee: Well, I think the next thing is to look for opportunities to serve. The world is full of need. There is so much suffering in the world and so many that are just challenged by their own circumstances, and you don't have to go far. You don't even have to do anything formally or structurally. You can just look around your neighborhood and see somebody that needs a helping hand, that needs a word of encouragement, that needs somebody to come alongside of them and just put their hand on their shoulder, and say, "It's gonna be okay." I think how we view the world and how we see the world really determines the opportunity, I believe, God gives us to serve the world. There's so many opportunities to serve. I had a friend that is no longer alive, he was a tennis pro at El Camino Country Club, and I would say my best friend ever.0:18:51.8 Mischa Z: Who is your best friend ever?0:18:53.1 Donnie Dee: He was my best friend. He passed away probably 10 years ago. I've got a picture of him up here in my bookshelf. He passed away about 10 years ago of a brain tumor and it really came on fast, and I just watched him go through all of that and really die in an honorable way. And he was just a tennis pro. He'd make a lot of money but then I saw him have an impact on a lot of people. I had a chance to officiate his memorial service. There's probably 500 people standing remotely in this little chapel. But I remember he used to tell his kids... And he's about 10 years older than me, so I kinda looked up to him a little bit. And I remember he told his kids who were a few years older than my kids that if you're having a bad day, go be a blessing to somebody. Go find somebody and be a blessing to them and not only will you make their day a much better day but it'll take your eyes off of what concerns you most. And I think that's a powerful principle that is easy to implement that can change your complete perspective and how you see your circumstances by, one, being grateful and by, two, looking for opportunity to be a blessing to somebody else, formally or informally.0:20:10.3 Mischa Z: I love that a lot. Service, for me, has been so impactful in my life to get me out of my head and all those things that you said, and to find that gratitude in a lot of what I do. My current state in the world, I'm trying to let go of what being of service means. So I have my vision and it usually has lots of accolades. I want to be of service and then the shiny objects but I... So I wanna ask you... Easy to implement. So tell me, give me some easy to implement both, I think you said, official and unofficial.0:20:58.8 Donnie Dee: Yeah, or formally or informally.0:21:00.0 Mischa Z: There we go.0:21:01.0 Donnie Dee: And I would say, formally, there's lots of organizations like the San Diego Rescue Mission. I had 240 volunteers down here last week that get what it means to serve the world, that get what it means to serve the community. They got things going on, they've got kids, little league games, and work, and church responsibilities, and yard work, and all kinds of stuff like the rest of us, but they come down every week, many of them, and they serve meals. They come down every week, many of them, and they help us run the mission; 240 volunteers that showed up last week. Now, some of them were regulars and then some of them came down for their once a month service project but I love that they're committed to this place. And I would say that's one of the ways to serve, is to be consistent, is to find a place that really hits your heart and a place that you wanna make a difference because there's lots of organizations like ours out there that need the help. We don't have enough staff to do all the things that we need to do around here and when volunteers come down and serve, not only does it help us raise our level of leadership but it helps those that we're serving because now we could do it at a much higher level.0:22:18.1 Mischa Z: I love that. I like what you said, and I'm gonna frame it this way, take the time to find some place that inspires you to be consistent. So go to the San Diego Rescue Mission and if that grabs you, awesome, be consistent but if it doesn't, perhaps look again. Keep looking until you can find that thing that maybe resonates, yeah?0:22:45.0 Donnie Dee: Yeah, and I think that we don't have to do everything, but what if all of us at this summit did something? And I'm sure that if you had the ability to find out all of the areas that people at this summit are involved in, we'd probably be impressed and probably be in awe, but there's probably somebody that this really speaks to them. You've been feeling like you need to get involved, you've been feeling like you need to do something, and I would say, find that thing and also, step back and evaluate your own story. What is it that you've been through? What is it that you've been challenged by, either as you grew up or even later in life? And typically, I have found that that ends up being something that you wanna give back too because you've been given so much. Like for you, I can only imagine what it's like for you to sit down with somebody who's struggling with an addiction and the power of that is, is that you know exactly what that's like, you know exactly what that means.0:23:53.4 Donnie Dee: I remember I'm the oldest of four and my parents got divorced when I was in eighth grade, and I always resented it. I was like... I never really understood how difficult and challenging it is to be married till I got married. I'm just a kid and I resented it, and I always wondered why it had to happen, because it was hard on us. It was really hard on us. But it wasn't until I was 25 years old and I took a position in Colorado working with coaches and athletes, and I met a kid whose mom asked me, "Would you meet with him because me and his dad are going through a divorce and he's really struggling?" And I sat down with him at Taco Bell and that divorce that I went through as an eighth grader made sense to me because I could speak to him in a way that I think he listened to me more than he listened to anybody else because I could relate. And I think that's the challenge, is not only to be consistent at that thing that you feel compelled to do but to find something that really resonates with your heart because you've been impacted, you've changed, you've overcome. And I think that puts you in a position to really have an impact on other people that will trust you because you've been there.0:25:08.3 Mischa Z: Yeah, that's good. That experience, bring that experience to the table and use that as a tool to serve. That's very powerful. How about informally? So we covered formally, tell me some informal.0:25:25.3 Donnie Dee: I think that some of us are more relational than others, and so as I mentioned earlier, just having a world view where you see people as people, not as a hassle or as a distraction, or as a... We've got... I remember when I was a kid, if somebody rang the doorbell, it wasn't uncommon growing up in a neighborhood. We were bouncing around from house to house. Somebody rings my doorbell now, I'm half freaked out. [laughter] What do they want? Am I in trouble? Am I about to get robbed? Why are they ringing my doorbell? We live in a world of garage door openers where we pull our car in and we get out, and walk into the house and we don't connect with anybody, and I just don't think that's... I don't think that's best for society. We are human beings, we are meant to connect, and I think the absolute most fulfilling way to connect is to help others. And so as we began to see in our neighborhoods, as we begin to see in our workplace, as we begin to see at the gym, as we begin to see people at our kids practices, and as we begin to build relationships, I think you find that there's a whole world out there that's waiting to be touched and waiting to be blessed if we'll have the eyes to see that.0:26:45.7 Mischa Z: Yeah, I loved that thought. This is what I hear, a lot of what I hear, is how powerful, when I walk out the door, a smile can be, a generous nod, an open, generous... And when I say generous, meaning... I don't mean literally having to give something to somebody but that... You know what I'm saying when I say generous?0:27:11.9 Donnie Dee: We all know people that when you're around them, they're life-giving, they're so positive, they're so enthusiastic, they're so full of joy. That's actually contagious. And when I see that, not only do I benefit from that but it's also a challenge to me that I wanna be that kind of person. I wanna be that kind of person that when others are around me, it raises their level of influence and leadership capacity.0:27:40.2 Mischa Z: Yeah, and the other thing I heard was, if I'm having... If I see somebody and I go negative and I get judgmental or whatever that could be, they shouldn't have crossed the street in front of me, or the gamut that can go through our brain is literally practiced to be like, "Wait a minute, can I shift how I view that person to a positive attitude or from a positive set of glasses?" or say it however you want.0:28:09.9 Donnie Dee: Yeah, yeah, no, I think it goes back to that way we view the world and we are all pretty selfish and we all are the most very self-centered and self-focused, and self-aware, and if I can begin to see the world from a standpoint of, "Look, it's not about me"... I need to remind myself of that daily. That's almost something I should rehearse in my head over, "It's not about me. This is not about me. This is not about me, my needs, my wants, my desires. What if I begin to make the world about other people?" and I think that's legacy. You start talking about how to make the most of our lives. Well, service is certainly a way to do that and at the end of our lives, what you have in an auditorium, like my friend that I mentioned, is a bunch of people that you've impacted if we dare to see the world in another's focused view. If we see the world in a self-focused view, then at the end of our lives, probably not a whole lot of people are around to celebrate your legacy, right?0:29:20.2 Mischa Z: Right, it's true.0:29:21.3 Donnie Dee: We know that now, so why don't we do something about it? Why don't we do something different?0:29:25.8 Mischa Z: Yeah, yeah. If we can dare... Say that again, if we can dare to see the world... How did you say that? If we...0:29:33.2 Donnie Dee: Well, if we can dare to see the world others-focused instead of me-focused, then really I think build a legacy that has an impact on lots of people's lives.0:29:45.7 Mischa Z: Yeah, that's great. So good. Donnie, I love it. I think that that's a great place to stop interview one. So if this interview with Donnie Dee was fantastic and you want to get even more content from Donnie, upgrade to the all access pass for that bonus interview. And I've got some good questions and I know we're gonna have some fun, and I'm gonna give you an opportunity to be vulnerable, so I think that's always really good. Any final thoughts to share that we did not get a chance to cover, Donnie?0:30:29.0 Donnie Dee: No, just that I think we should all be mindful that life is short, and so each day's a gift. The Bible teaches that this is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. And I think that regardless of your faith orientation, I think we would all agree that life is short and goes by very quickly, and so what we do with these days really determines a successful life. If you want another tip, I think, in terms of how to have an effective life and to be well-rounded and to be well-balanced like that three-legged stool, then we gotta get up every day and make this day count by treating it as a gift.0:31:09.7 Mischa Z: Yeah, that's good. That's good stuff, Donnie. Thank you so much. You can find out all about what Donnie does as President and CEO of the San Diego Rescue Mission by going to sdrescue.org. Again, sdrescue.org.

"Dear resident physicians: Soon you'll finish residency, and you may be wondering what's next. Some of you will start fellowships, but most of you will practice your specialty. You may be looking for opportunities that are a good match with your needs and wants. Virtually all of you are looking forward to greater income. I hope that this ending is also a beginning – a renewal of your commitment to the life-long learning that is medicine.

And I thought, "why not have meditation Thursdays?" Meditation Thursdays. So no promises, but I thought I'd give it a rip. How about it is Thursday. Here we go. Let's have a meditation. So for today I wrote down what if there was no hurry? What if there was no hurry. What if there was...well...let's start with this. Let's take a big, long breath in through your nose. Long breath out through your nose. Sit comfortably in your seat. If you're in your car, if you're on your couch, perhaps you're you're walking while you're, you are listening to this. Stop for a moment and bring your awareness to where you are. What you're doing. Take a big breath in through your nose.Mischa Z: 01:34 Big breath out through your nose. Role, your neck from side to side, feel the vertebrae by vertebrae, crackling breath in breath out. Role your shoulders up and down. Wiggle your hips from side to side, settle into your seat. Or if you're standing shift from one foot to the other and then let your arms hang dangle down by your side. Whether you're standing or sitting big breath in. Breath it all out, bring your awareness to your, your heart. Perhaps put your hand on your chest. Breath in breath out. And let's contemplate the idea. What if there was no hurry? What if there was no hurry regarding your relationships? Regarding your finances? Your job? What if you were right where you were supposed to be? Breathe that in. Right where I'm supposed to be. Breathe that out. Appreciate the silence of the moment. If it's quiet where you're sitting. Perhaps you hear a car go by. The train whistle, blow, no matter nice breath in long breath out. Savor where you are at this space. At this time, you are right where you're supposed to be. If you're single, there's no hurry to be in a relationship. If you were in a relationship, it's beautiful as it is. Can you see it and appreciate it for how it stands right now? Letting go of attachment of what we think needs to be.Mischa Z: 05:28 The illusion of needing more success. Needing, Wanting, Perhaps craving more than what you have. For, for me. Can I sit in this space of creating new opportunities? And letting go of expectations and outcomes where I think I should be? Can I stop comparing myself to others? What if there is no hurry? What if I'm where I'm supposed to be? What if my sons are where they're supposed to be? As far along as they're supposed to be? Long breaths in. Long breaths out. Breath in. And the long breath out. What if there is no hurry?Mischa Z: 08:39 Here that dog barking in the background, perhaps there's a refrigerator humming? A clock taking? Breathe in, breathe it out. Roll your head from side to side. What if there's no hurry. Role your neck around in the circle. Tilt your head strongly from side to side, reach your arms tall above your head. Interlace your fingers and stretcher arms tall issue. Push your palms to the ceiling. Now a big breath out and let it go. Shake your arms by your side. I encourage you to savor things as they are. And to question any time today where you're feeling stressed about time constraints. Ask yourself what if there was no hurry? What if there is no hurry?
It's Time for me to get my Amazon affiliate back up and running. And I tell you the story of how Amazon kicked me off of their affiliate/associate program for cutting corners. My excuse? I was in a state of overwhelm.

No, this is not a repeat of last of the last six episodes that I've started with that. Um, you can click through and buy the Shure MV88 Mic through my...through the show notes through my resources page, which is Be Love Media, www.Belove.media/resources. And you can buy the Shure MV88, and some other cool tech that I use to record episodes and do what I do. Now, why I'm talking about that is it's time for me to get my Amazon affiliate back up and running. So when I started this whole venture creating podcasts and summits and things. One of the ways to find some initial monetization and not a lot, but perhaps depending on your momentum, again, a way to find initial monetization was to create a resource page. Guide people to that resource page through your, um, show notes. Through your intros and outros. More specifically your outros. On your episodes by maybe saying it like I have done on this episode and I'll do it again right now.Mischa Z: 01:55 Hey, go to www.belove.media/resources and get your Shure MV88 mic. Because it is awesome. And hopefully you do that. And I get my affiliate link from Amazon, put it in the show notes, you buy it for the normal price. You actually can't even tell that, um, that I've got anything to do with it. It's the normal Amazon page. It's pretty cool. It's really cool. Right? And, and I believe in the product and I put time and effort into creating a podcast and all these things. So hopefully you will purchase something. I'll also talk about A Course In Miracles. So you can buy the A Course In Miracles, the third edition combined volume. You can buy that, um, through my resource page and some other stuff.Mischa Z: 03:02 And so when I started this whole venture, I created the resource page. I got, I became an Amazon affiliate. I, I, um, you know, started driving a little bit of traffic there. And when you start as an Amazon affiliate, you've got six months to, I believe it's do three sales or six sales or something like that. And if you don't do three sales or six sales within that first six months they cancel your affiliate link. So, that's the first bit of pressure. You've got to sell a certain amount. And I was like, oh my God, there's no way that's going to happen. Well, of course I got, uh, I did, I had, you know, the three sales or the six sales within the first 30 days. So that was super cool. Unfortunately, that triggers something where Amazon looks to make sure your Amazon affiliate compliant.Mischa Z: 04:15 The reason I'm telling you all this is because a friend of mine was like, Hey, I hope you've been tracking your, your sales because I've been buying a bunch of books from your resource page. Cause he loves the Course In Miracles and buys him for his buddies and stuff like that. And uh, and I was like, oh no. I mean, yay. Yes, I was super excited, but oh no. And I'm going to, and I'm telling you why the, oh, now right now you can go back and hear these episodes. Right? Talk about Amazon affiliates, declining my affiliate status. Cause "the man" Blank'n Amazon, the man making it really hard, I feel like. And then also back then Apple wasn't distributing my podcasts. So there was the whole Apple battle. Those were way back in like episodes, probably 20 to 40 or something like that.Mischa Z: 05:22 Anyhow. Um, so at the bottom of my show notes, it says, "I am an Amazon affiliate. I may get paid for any purchases you make through these links" or something like that. I, I put the appropriate verbiage at the bottom of, of the page there. I did not have that verbiage originally because I chose to ignore it by the way, everything I'm going to tell you how I flailed and why Amazon kicked me off as, because I cut corners. I was like, yeah, that rule doesn't apply to me. And Amazon was like, oh yes, that rule does apply to you as an Amazon affiliate. So I got the disclaimer at the bottom and the other thing is your web page. You have to, um, when you try, when you apply to become an Amazon affiliate, you give them your web page where stuff's going down and you need to be producing new content.Mischa Z: 06:31 It's like six pieces a month or something new every day. Or I can't remember what it is. You can't just have a page out there and not be adding value. So you've got to be producing content. And again, I was like, that rule does not apply to me. And I just choose to ignore it. And it wasn't like it doesn't apply to me. I was just in a state of overwhelm. I was like, I just, you know, starting a podcast, working on my dream 100, you know, trying to get a framework together for a summit idea, all this stuff, all this new stuff. And so I was like, well maybe, maybe Amazon will miss that. Or it didn't read all the details, the fine print or whatever. So I was so excited to start having a little bit of revenue. When all of a sudden I get the email, it said you've been shut down.Mischa Z: 07:41 And I was like "Damn It!". And so fast forward, six months later to today. And so I just said, you know what, I'm going to keep all the, you can still sell stuff through your old affiliate links. You just don't get paid on it. Um, so I was like, at some point I'll get to making a page that shows my updated content every day and I'll meet the requirements. And now, so a couple of things, one people are buying and I'm not getting credit. So I was like, all right, it's time to it's time to take the time to reapply to the Amazon affiliate program and do the work it takes to make sure all the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed. And the other thing is I'm going to start making a big push to drive more organic traffic to my podcast, to my resource page, to, to, to those affiliate links.Mischa Z: 09:04 So I need to have it in order. So there you have it. I think. So that's, what's up it's time for me to hopefully the next, hopefully within the next week, one of my episodes will be I've reapplied for the Amazon affiliate program. And then hopefully within a few weeks, it'll be, yes. I passed the test and checked the boxes and I's are dotted. T's are crossed and I am a successful Amazon affiliate. A person company, whatever. Anyway, there you have it love to all, um, these are all, uh, problems of gradual success as well. Love to all bye.

Turns out Russell Brunson is Human. On his Marketing Secrets Podcast he talks about a real time failure. This is refreshing and lets me know I don't need to be superhuman. This also shakes me up because it means there is no golden goose. I have more failures in front of me.

Too is Russell Brunson's, Marketing Secrets Podcast. And one thing I noticed about Russell Brunson, he's really good at staying on point with his episodes. And he obviously has great content. He's very successful at what he does with tons of experience. So I very much enjoy his, um, staying on point. And I realized, yeah, I can veer off a lot veer off of my point. And I love that. And they can have multiple points going at the same time. And I love that perhaps one day, all my episodes will be, or most of them will be one specific point, but as it is, some of my episodes are good at that. And some are good at multiple trains of thought, this is going to be a multiple train of thought episode.Mischa Z: 01:17 The next thing about the, his podcast today was he showed some great vulnerability talking about how he had a failed webinar. So he does webinars and drives purchases and things like that. And generally speaking, we hear about lots of success. He paints the picture of lots of success, which is awesome. He does have lots of success. But today he said how he ha he had in him and his company, ClickFunnels had invested multiple eight figures in a, in a company and another company to acquire their list. And then so they could market to this list and, and he was doing a webinar to that list. And, you know, 8,000 people jumped on the webinar or something and, and he flamed out in a massive way. And he was talking about it. And he was also talking about at the end, you know, he said, Hey, a lot of us successful folks talk about the wound versus the scar and how, how in a perfect world, you, you only talk about those things that have scarred over. So they're not raw wounds. And he was laughing and, you know, having fun. And he was clearly the state of frustration talking about the current wound of his failed webinar. And, uh, which is really cool because it gave me, or gives me a little permission to talk about some of the wound'ee things that I talk about. Um, and, and I, I dunno if I want to say makes it okay, but, but it, it does happen and it can be refreshing to hear about real time frustration from someone who's super successful.Mischa Z: 03:44 And he further talked about how, how, you know, some, some failures that led to successes. He had the launch Click Funnels five times, and then on the sixth time, and finally took hold and he was talking about how he did this. It was called 10 X, this 10 X sales conference. And he did his presentation and he made $3 million. This was a live concert or not. It was a live presentation in front of 10,000 people or some such thing. And, and it was so successful, his pitch that he made $3 million, sold $3 million worth of product. And so the next year he goes to it to do it again. And there's a documentary about the whole thing, which now I have to watch, but he brings along a documentary crew and I get under the, under the guise of this thing is going to be super successful. There's 30,000 people at the event this time versus 10,000 last time. So he, you know, they're thinking they're going to make tens of millions of dollars, or he says, billions of dollars. And of course he totally flamed out. So he put out the documentary that shows him flaming out, shows this whole process. Now I have to find it. And you can listen to the Russell Brunson Marketing Secrets Podcast. And he it's like my webinar failed. That's the, something like that, the title of his episode.Mischa Z: 05:43 And, uh, and you can track down the, this, this documentary of him imploding on webinar or on, on, on, yeah, on a big sales presentation in front of 30,000 people or not having the success he wanted. So it was kind of refreshing. He was just talking a lot about how, you know, he's a performer and effect in, and, uh, you know, it's, he's, he's sales...does salei... s his performance, right? He's, he's performing to sell his very effective product. And it was kind of two things I felt after the podcast episode, the first one was, thank God, he's human. Right. Thank God. Russell Brunson is human. Russell Brunson is human. And then the second thing I thought was, oh, now there's no golden goose out there that ensures success, quote, unquote success and everything we do as a fledgling entrepreneur, um, I've got to get ready to fail.Mischa Z: 07:11 There's going to be failures. So that, that, that was a very, I was like, oh my gosh, that was disheartening for a moment. But of course, as I like to say, come back to the moment, do the next indicated step and, uh, continue on. It's funny. I managed to stay on point about somebody else's podcast episode being my, being my topic. Um, so yeah, that's, that's, uh, that's it Russell Brunson had a failure and, uh, it, it provided me hope that, uh, we don't have to be superhuman, but then also, oh, no, we don't become superhuman. Uh, gosh, that's it. I I'm right at eight minutes, I'm going to call it good. Have a fine day.
If radio weren't dead before coronavirus-19, it may have suffered its final and fatal blow. Virtually all radio, including late-night and paranormal varieties, have been swallowed up by the constant demand for covid-coverage. Covideo really has killed the radio star. With that in mind, there are some ways of serving the crown question without succumbing to the drab regurgitation of all other radio. This must be done with documentation, well-controlled speculation, reasoning, unbiased political wrangling, and with willful intention to understand the deeper meanings that are an undercurrent of every other story.

It's fun to get back on track, you know, when you're busy with something and you get momentum and then perhaps you take a vacation and come back from the vacation, rested and relaxed, and it can take a little bit to re find your groove. And, uh, and to get back on track. But when you do it feels good. So, yes, let's talk about this. Getting back on track. I, of course completed the Tools For A Good Life Summit, which anybody can go check out www.toolsforagoodlifesummit.com. I had put a ton of work into it and came out of the other side with all sorts of great lessons and momentum, but at the same time, very burned out and overwhelmed by perhaps next steps. And that's what I've been talking about, the last few episodes or some of the next steps.Mischa Z: 01:16 And I feel like a few of those episodes have been a bit disjointed and messy, but I'm still going with it. Take the messy action. So my brother was in town for a week as well. I love my brother, Nick. Hey Nick, if you're listening, I love you make us such a fantastic supporter of me and what I do. But as I get older, I'm 53. Now Nick came and visited for five or six days, and we usually have some fun and, and eat lots of food, drink, lots of coffee. And you know, every time he leaves there is sadness in me. And I'm not sure why I'm telling you this. And will you find this useful? Maybe you'll find it useful in that you can relate. But I had a very big sense of melancholy when he left. He left a couple of days ago, but I definitely had a sense of melancholy.Mischa Z: 02:26 And, uh, so I went on this camping trip. So effectively was off the grid, got nothing done other than grounding with nature. Bonding, with nature and getting refreshed and revitalized. Then my brother came to town and I effectively, you know, took that week off from all this 2CCX growing your audience, um, you know, building a business, an interweb business fund. And, uh, he left a couple of days ago. Then I just took the next day off beautiful. And yesterday I was inspired to update my Instagram and my son, the, the, the, the bio link. And so what's going on is I'm on a summit. I was on somebody else's summit. I spoke on it, the Forgiveness Zone Summit, go check it out. The Forgiveness Zone Summit. You can click on the link in the show notes and check it out that way. But part of me being on the summit is to promote the summit. As I've asked people who spoke at my summit to promote that summit. So I am committed to promoting the summit, but part of that is getting my Instagram dialed in so that I don't have enough followers on Instagram yet where I can put the link in the actual story, I guess. Yes, the story.Mischa Z: 04:18 And so I need to put "link in bio" "link in bio". I believe that's the same in the notes of a regular Instagram post too, on the feed. So "Link in bio". So I needed to get the link in bio dialed in. So I did there's link tree, you'll see link tree on my part of ClickFunnels. So I was able to create a quick funnel and put it in the Instagram bio. So you can click on the link in bio and it, you can go to the Forgiveness Zone Summit. You can go to the Tools For A Good Life Summit. You can go check out this podcast, the Bitch Slap ...The Accelerated Path To Peace! Podcast. So that feels awesome. I finally got that done. I got an, a post on Facebook for the Forgiveness Zone Summit. I got that done. I've got an idea on how to update my Facebook profile.Mischa Z: 05:22 So I'm working on that, all these things. Um, and I got an email out to my list promoting the summit. That's the biggest thing. I got an email out to my fledgling list, promoting the Forgiveness Zone Summit. Wow! So I've been thinking a lot too, about how am I adding value? Is this adding value? And I think one of the big ways that I'm adding value on this podcast, as people can jump along, they can grow with me. They can try new things with me. They can try the things that I'm trying with me, or perhaps they can listen fondly and go, gosh, I can remember back when I was starting out with new ventures on the internet. And so you can laugh with me. Um, and hopefully, you know, hopefully I am showing people how to take messy action, how to trust in God, how too, you know, learn all great life tools along the way.Mischa Z: 06:41 Oh my goodness. Um, so I also, the last two or three weeks had missed, um, some, a couple of coaching calls on purpose. Cause I was off the grid effectively on vacation. I had missed a couple of classrooms, a couple of coaching group classrooms. And so I got to re engage and get on a coaching call today and it felt really good. I got to talk to coach Vince about my insecurities, about re upping on the coaching and how I felt perhaps behind. And, and some of my other insecurities, you know, monetizing my vision, the business will the business ever monetize and some other things. And he talked to me about consistency. And how, what he saw in me was consistency and how consistency is such a key part of, of, of an entrepreneurial endeavor. Consistency is a big, big part of that. So that felt really good to hear. Um, so I just wanted to give everybody an update. I'm back at it. I feel good. I'm updating Instagram, I'm updating Facebook and promoting the summit that I spoke on the Tools For A Good Life Summit. I'm back on some coaching calls. And I feel like the momentum I had out of the summit, much of that is indeed carrying forward. So that's where I am. I feel like I survived vacation. I survived family visits, perhaps even thrived through them. Love to all have a good day.
Labor day mayhem swirls around me as I record this. A little bit on the next bits of messy action standing right in front of me. And I give you the simple instructions on how to interact with a hundred thousand people via Facebook groups.1) Find five groups that share your common interests. With approximately 20,000 each. 2) Each morning you put a value post in there. 3) Each morning you answer three questions that have been posted on each group. (Thank you Russell Brunson!)Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

As I record this it's labor day and I grabbed my microphone on the way out the door. I'll tell you why I woke up this morning and did my meditation and did a little, A Course In Miracles reading, which was so poignant about, um, gosh, I don't have my notes in front of me. It doesn't matter. Let's say that for another day. It did all that. Did my routine checked to make sure that the latest podcast episode published and it did, and it was number 300. Oh my God. I have published 300 podcast episodes . and it just brought such a light lightness to my heart and a bit of joy. It's like, oh my gosh, like one day at a time that has come together and the outcomes were or are, or where holy mackerel. I probably probably edit the motorcycles out. Anyhow, the outcomes were irrelevant. It was just really cool to be like, yeah, 300 episodes are up. The best part about it is number 300, my top three prayers for the moment. How fun is that? I dunno. And all, it just seems sort of numerically, coincidentally, 300 episode, top three prayers to stay in the moment.Mischa Z: 02:23 And I thought to the messy action, there's a lot of messy action going on right now. And I'm like, you know what? I'm going to record. But I feel like is in the teeth of the madness, the mouth of the madness traffic people walking, it's an incredibly busy morning due to, uh, people having the day off. So normally where in there wouldn't be traffic or this week cars or this people. I was like, I was thinking, I'm going to look really silly talking to my phone, recording on my Shure MV88, mic. But heck with it, do it anyway. Take the messy action. Put your fears aside, take the messy action and put your fears aside. And how about this? Maybe this attracts the person it's supposed to attract it. Repels the people it's supposed to repel, but attracts the people it's supposed to attract.Mischa Z: 03:40 I like that thought another thing I wanted to discuss, another thing I wanted to discuss is up until this morning, I kind of was in a state of overwhelm of, of next. What was next? I know I've talked about that on a few episodes, but I had some fear of financial insecurity takeover in this moment. Him not financially insecure, but I was projecting out a couple of years and gripped with, oh my gosh, what if this doesn't work? Or, you know, what, if I don't start making money or monetizing my efforts. And you know all this future tripping and also like the list of tasks in front of me. And it just became very clear next indicated step. And it's all going to be good next indicated step and it's all going to be good. So the next indicated step is put out a couple of promotions on the summit that I'm on, that I've been asked to speak on.Mischa Z: 05:06 You can check it out. The forgiveness zone summit, the link will be in this episode and come up with a new, uh, clean up my Facebook profile and then start interacting with groups. And that's just, that's one thing to do the other is to, uh, so I can do that right away. I can get home and then clean up the episode. And then the a hundred thousand people in the three to five groups, clean up those groups and then start interacting with the groups. And that feels like the Herculean effort, right? Like, right. Like you can tell I'm insecure in the moment. Cause there's lots of filler words, right? Like lots of filler words. So funny that being a filler as well.Mischa Z: 06:23 So the next thing staring me right in the eyes is interact with a hundred thousand people via Facebook groups. So anybody can do this. If you're wanting to grow your audience or have some impact or extend your reach or link in with new communities, find three to five groups on Facebook that are what you're interested in. So mine would be most likely meditation, you know, S uh, personal growth, perhaps recovery. So you find five groups with approximately 20,000 each and then each morning you put a value post in there and you answer three questions on each group.Mischa Z: 07:22 In theory, this will drive interactions with you and your Facebook profile. And if you have somewhere that they can follow from your Facebook profile, they'll follow that, that breadcrumb. I E for me, it could be my summit link or my podcast linked to my podcast, whatever. And as I record this, I've got about 350 Instagram followers. And about 1050 Facebook friends slash followers, I think he started getting followers on your personal profile when she cap at the 5,000 friends. I honestly don't know how it works, but I'm just telling you those numbers. So for a couple of reasons, one, so we can see how the numbers are different in a few months and two, um, it's creating a little accountability in me. I'm putting out there what I'm going to start doing every morning. Okay. There is my labor day episode. I made it. I survived. What did I talk about? I talked about, oh, yes, I recorded my, or mySpeaker 2: 08:55 Hundredth episode published, which very exciting brought joy to my heart. Just that one day at a time, I've been able to do that and be staying in the moment to the next indicated step. That's all I got to do. Peace out. Love to all.
My brother nick is in town! I reflect on my willingness to finally do a meditation episode. And then I give a shout out to my brother Nick, who always supports me. No matter the shenanigans.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

And, uh, he's been in town for a few days and it's so interesting because it upsets my routine. And in a, in a fine way, like I'm absolutely not complaining. Um, and I love my brother tremendously. And, uh, I just want to say a few things about my brother and then some inspiration, um, that I had at the same time. So, uh, yeah, Nixon town naked. If you're listening to this, to this episode, I love you. Um, uh, yeah, so Nick gets to town and, um, it was right after my camping trip. And, uh, and so as I'm trying to find my new routine coming out of the summit and I go on this camping trip, get back and Nick shows up the next day and, and, uh, I had all this momentum recording episodes for, for this podcast.Mischa Z: 01:07 And then as soon as Nick lands and like too bashful to record an episode in front of him, um, trying to find the time usually recorded my house or walking, but not finding time to walk, anyhow. Um, and just in a bit of a, of a state of, uh, oh no, again, what am I going to record? What am I gonna record? I'm I'm idealess. Idealless for a podcast episode and, uh, all of a sudden, so this is one of the things I'm going to talk about. I've got a couple more in regards to Nick. Um, but this is really in regards to some inspiration that I had. So I was just reading "A Course In Miracles", you know, as Nick was kicking it on the couch, it's the afternoon, three or four in the afternoon. And, and I keep, you know, turning to my intuition or source or, you know, the infinite intelligence and, and trusting that don't worry.Mischa Z: 02:22 It's okay if your Nick's here and you're not having a ton of cohesive thought streams of thought for, for, um, an episode. Just trying to trust that right. And keep like, saying that mantra to myself, Hey, it's okay. The ideas will come. Or I had all these great content flowing front, um, the Viktor Frankl book. And I'm hoping for more content from that book, because it was so rich with ideas and talking points. And there were, uh, interestingly in the Victor Frankl book, there's a couple of thoughts where I was like, a couple of this ideas might go, oh, maybe I would disagree a little bit. So I think that will be fun to talk about as well, perhaps or anyway. So as, uh, I'm reading "A Course In Miracles", I find this really juicy paragraph about pausing for a moment and letting go of some preconceived notions and things.Mischa Z: 03:46 So you can see people in a different light and the inspiration hits me as I'm doing what the paragraph says, oh my gosh, what a great meditation this would be and what a great episode that would be. And, um, it's been lurking in my mind as I, when I, from when I started the podcast. And even before I started the podcast, perhaps I would do some sorts of, you know, meditations and, uh, and so to have that thought pop into my head and that willingness feels super exposed. Wanting to do a meditation episodes. I just feel super exposed to me, like putting myself out there in a way that's very raw. And so the thought of actually doing it was very far away. The idea of it was there, but perhaps the willingness and the inspiration seemed elusive and fleeting at best. And so to have that inspiration come to me was pretty cool. And the next thing that happened was go do the meditation yourself, take 20 minutes, breathe that in and let it settle and internalize it and then come back and record the episode. And, uh, so that's what I did. Yesterday's episode was the, was the outcropping of that. Is that the right word or the result of that? Um, it's really funny as I'm walking through traffic, talking on my phone, getting interesting looks, trying to not get hit by a car,Speaker 2: 05:57 Hitting pause, just hitting start again. I found a bench to sit on. Sure. It he'd get hectic all the sudden as I was walking and recording. So anyway, it was super fun to do that a little, you know, seven or eight minute episode meditation. And I'm assuming that as you're listening to this, I actually published it. Um, but I did some, I did some literally four or five years ago. And I still have some that were recordings laying around where I started playing with this microphone that I'm recording on and playing with meditations and things, but never with, did I actually think I would record and publish meditations? It's a very exciting, thank you for listening. Listen to yesterday's episode. I hope you find it fun. Um, and so lastly, just want to talk about Nick and give a little shout out to Nick. And I could probably do a whole nother episode and perhaps I will, but I just want to say right here in this moment, how, how I really, my brother is such a good man and how, oh my gosh.Speaker 2: 07:23 It's may have trains super loud RVs. I thought this was going to be a nice, calm, quiet episode. It's not turning out that way. The best laid plans of mice and men hang in there, everybody. But just to see just how cool it is to have a brother is who was so supportive of what I feel like are my shenanigans, right? Like doing podcasts and summits and, and, uh, just over my life, he's always been encouraging to me and, and, uh, and, and one of my biggest supporters and my biggest fans in the face of sometimes what seemed to be crazy behaviors. So a big shout out to my brother. And I would encourage anybody to think about the people in their lives, who support you, who are the people in your lives that support you no matter what, and just encourage you. And I hope you have at least one of those people in your lives. One of them is absolutely my brother, and I'm very grateful for him and just life is good. That's it? I'm going to stop. Now. I survived. This is one of those episodes where I feel like I survived in spite of the mayhem flying on around me.

And right now I would like to introduce to you Dom... And I might butcher your last name, so bear with me, Bertoncini.0:00:20.0 Dom Bertoncini: Yeah, you hit it right on the head, I'm surprised.0:00:22.8 Mischa Z: Alright, fantastic. AKA, or also known as, Dom The Hypnotist. And I'm gonna tell the people a little about you real quick.0:00:32.0 Dom the Hypnotist: Cool.0:00:33.0 Mischa Z: Alright, so Dom, you, specialize... You're certified in hypnotherapy, timeline therapy, and neuro-linguistic programming. You specialize in helping people get rid of anxiety, depression, and limiting beliefs, so they can live the life that they want. You have worked with some of the top athletes in the NFL, UFC, and Olympic athletes from all over the world. And a fun fact about Dom, you get randomly referenced by UFC fighters on the Joe Rogan podcast.0:01:11.8 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah, awesome, thank you. I appreciate that intro. And sometimes people think that I only work with athletes, but I work with everyday people like myself. There's only so many athletes that you're gonna be able to work with, just because there's only... You think about the NFL, there's only a thousand people, and out of those a thousand people... I have a small group of people that I work with it. Same thing in the UFC, there's only 550 people on the roster. So sometimes people think, "Oh, does he only work with athletes?" or whatever. No, I work with everyday people, like I said, like myself, like yourself, so...0:01:49.9 Mischa Z: Yeah. Perfect, thank you for that. I will tell you, as I've been putting together this summit and I was searching madly for a hypnotherapist...0:02:00.0 Dom the Hypnotist: How did you... Did you go on Instagram and you went to the "hypnosis" tag or something? 0:02:04.9 Mischa Z: Yeah, exactly.0:02:05.9 Dom the Hypnotist: Oh, there you go.0:02:06.0 Mischa Z: Exactly. Yes, and yeah it was interesting, I'll tell you, you can find, obviously, a ton of people that way, and what I loved about you and what drew me to you is you seem like a down-to-earth real... Like, "Here's a real... " You present it in real-life terms, which I think is so powerful. Yeah, and then I'll tell you too, I was like... You invite a few people, and I'm like "Gosh I hope Dom says yes", 'cause I like your message, I think...0:02:39.9 Dom the Hypnotist: I think I got an email from you and then I thought it was spam and so I just kind of ignored it, 'cause I get emails like that all the time...0:02:46.1 Mischa Z: Yes.0:02:46.1 Dom the Hypnotist: People asking "Dom do you wanna get your blue check mark? Do you wanna get this or that?" or whatever. So I just kind of ignored it, and then the second email, I don't know what caught my eye but I think it seemed like it wasn't spam, and I kind of read through it like, "Oh, this guy actually looked at my account, it wasn't just a blast email."0:03:05.0 Mischa Z: Yes, yes. Yeah, cool. Tell me, just real quick, at two to three minutes, how did you get involved in hypnotherapy and NLP and all that sort of stuff? 0:03:14.0 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah, so it was actually completely random. Ever since I was maybe 18-19 I've always been into NLP and Hypnotherapy and everything else, because for about 11 years, from 18-19 to about 31 I had done insurance sales. So in insurance sales, or any sales job, you're always constantly trying to improve your mindset, trying to get better and more effective at what you're doing, and so I had known about it for a very long time. But about...0:03:45.0 Dom the Hypnotist: So I've been doing this a little bit over two years, it's been March 5th, 2019 is when I graduated my first course, but what happened was my mom, she's into personal development, she's pretty successful, she owns an insurance company or an insurance brokerage as well, through State Farm, and so she's always doing personal development, she's always going to seminars and courses and all this. And so she had went to an NLP course and she was telling me about it, and she goes, "Yeah, you learn how to do hypnosis", and this, that, and the other, "And yeah, and it only took two days to learn it." And I was like... I was kind of blown away, 'cause I thought that it was something that it would take months and months and months of training before you could get to hone in your skills, right? 0:04:32.0 Mischa Z: Yes.0:04:32.1 Dom the Hypnotist: So that's why I never really got into, 'cause I was like "I don't have the time to go through all that." So she was telling me about it, I was like, "Wow, that sounds pretty interesting." So, I don't know, a couple of months go by and she ended up surprising me with it as a Christmas gift. So Christmas of 2018 she got me a three-day introductory course. So I was like, "Wow, this is kinda cool." Honestly, best Christmas present I've ever had, to this day. So I went to the course and I had literally zero expectation of doing this for a living.0:05:05.0 Dom the Hypnotist: I was just going to get rid of my own problems I was dealing with and maybe learn like a cool trick or something, you know, "Make yourself sleep!"0:05:12.5 Mischa Z: Yes.0:05:13.8 Dom the Hypnotist: Like you see on YouTube, right? So I had, like I said, zero expectation that I was gonna do this. So I went to the course and I just fell in love with it. I was really good at it, I took to it pretty well. And after that three days I really felt a shift in myself, like I could literally feel just energy coming out of me, like I could put my hands and feel it. And I'd never felt that in my life, I always thought like the chakra stuff and all that BS, I was like "That's fake, that's not real", and then I actually felt it coming out of my chest, I was like "Oh my God... "0:05:51.8 Mischa Z: What? 0:05:52.0 Dom the Hypnotist: What was I holding on to? Like... Jesus. So I thought, I was like, "Man, if I could help people feel like this and I can do this for a living, I would way rather do this than selling insurance." So I had made a goal initially to transition from doing insurance to doing a full-blown hypnotherapy business, and I figured it would take me about six months to build up a clientele and everything else.0:06:19.0 Dom the Hypnotist: So when I got out of that course I literally had zero belief that I could charge for my services, so I had no real confidence. Because when you're in the course you're doing it with people that paid to be there, so it's a little bit easier, right? They're a little bit easier to do the process with, so I thought, "Well. Is this gonna work on people outside of the course?" right? So then I just started offering free 20-30-minute sessions through my Instagram for anybody who was interested. So within the first week I worked with 45-50 people.0:06:55.6 Dom the Hypnotist: Just any free time I had, just back to back to back to back to back. And then the second week was the same thing, so within about two weeks I worked with over 100 people, and they were like... People were promoting it on their Instagram, their Facebook and everything else. So I got to the point where I was like, "Well hey, I have so many people that wanna do this that I have to charge for my services, and I have no time to do insurance", so I remember it was literally two weeks of the day, I woke up, I actually had a full schedule that day, and I called my assistant, I said, "Hey look, call these people and tell them I'm not gonna come to the meeting. I'm done selling insurance, this is it. I'm never selling another insurance policy for the rest of my life." And then two weeks in I stopped, and then now we're here.0:07:44.0 Mischa Z: Wow, Dom, that is amazing. Thank you for that.0:07:46.5 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah, it was like completely random. I had no... Zero intention. But I'm so thankful and grateful for my mom for doing that, 'cause had she not, who knows? I'd probably still be selling insurance, hating my life, looking for something else that's more fulfilling, and I was one of the lucky ones I guess.0:08:06.9 Mischa Z: Yeah. You know, what I love about that story too is, well, the serendipitous nature of it, obviously, is great, but clearly the tool itself in action. So...0:08:17.2 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah. That's the main thing. Taking action? 0:08:20.6 Mischa Z: No, yeah, taking action and also the tool itself, like that tool, the gift, the serendipitous events of your mother giving you that for a gift, right? 0:08:32.5 Dom the Hypnotist: Right.0:08:33.0 Mischa Z: And then you dove in and then you do it, and then to take the action that the tool inspired in you. Right? 0:08:43.2 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah totally. Yeah, I just became obsessed, man. I was just like... It was all I thought about. And I'm still obsessed, but you know that... It's like that new car smell or the new car you buy, for the first couple of weeks you're like, "Oh my God!" you know? 0:08:58.9 Mischa Z: Yes. And it was just so exciting. So, yeah I really... I always tell people there's the three best decisions I ever made in my life: Number one, having my daughter, number two, starting my hypnotherapy business, and number three moving to Las Vegas. So yeah, it's been great. It's been truly life-changing.0:09:21.0 Mischa Z: That's amazing. I'm just taking note on that: Your daughter, starting your hypnotherapy business, and then moving to Las Vegas.0:09:33.1 Dom the Hypnotist: It used to be, before that, it was "Man, the best decision I ever made in my life was getting out of California and moving to Las Vegas." [chuckle] But then when I had my daughter and then, you know, so it is...0:09:42.1 Mischa Z: Yes, yes, kids are amazing, we're gonna save that for the bonus round. Yeah, I have two sons, 18 and 20, at the time of this, and they are just... It's an amazing, amazing experience. Big gifts too. Alright, so let's get to the meat of the matter. I'm gonna give you a scenario and then I'm gonna ask you a question. Okay? 0:10:07.9 Dom the Hypnotist: Let's do it.0:10:08.7 Mischa Z: Alright, fantastic. So, given this scenario, think of life as a three-legged stool of relationships, finances and health. And now think of someone who was or is successful and has had two of those legs fall out from under them. So this could be a combination of divorce, career upheaval, financial stress, these kids that we're talking about, kids acting out and not going the direction we want them to. There could be physical health challenges for themselves or for a loved one, maybe a death in the family or continued failed relationships.0:10:50.0 Mischa Z: And for me it was I went through a heavy divorce, both my parents died in rapid succession, within two weeks of each other, this was all going down. My career went... This was about 10 years ago, my career went into upheaval and financial distress, and up until that point my "pull myself up from my bootstraps" mentality, that "fix-it" mentality had worked, right? But then all of a sudden I needed new tools, and it was clear. Like working my way through it, like more success, more money, more toys, was not gonna solve the problem, so I needed new tools. So my question to you is, thinking of hypnotherapy as a tool, what are the exact next steps you would offer someone like me who's in that situation so that I know I'm headed in the new right direction, that I'll have positive momentum towards getting my life back on track? 0:11:57.5 Dom the Hypnotist: Good, so it's actually funny you say that, 'cause those are the three main areas that we help people with: Health, career relationships. And usually, for the most part, when people come to us, one of the areas is good but the other two are out of whack, everything's out of balance. So there's a couple of things. One is we have to figure out why this is happening, because we are all the creators of our reality, and once we understand that then we can take back the power and begin to change.0:12:32.0 Dom the Hypnotist: One thing that you find, especially in relationship stuff, is people always wanna blame the other person for why their life is the way that they are, right? So I'll give you a prime example, one of my clients... So I know this isn't a hypnotherapy thing, but you have to understand this concept first before the hypnotherapy will work. Because if you don't understand this concept, I could do this, I could hypnotize you every single day for the rest your life and nothing will work. So you have to understand this concept of cause and effect.0:13:04.1 Dom the Hypnotist: So, a client of mine, she was telling me about how her ex was so manipulative and "He's this and he's that", and blah, blah, blah, blah. Which we've all been there before. And I stopped her and I explained to her the concept of cause and effect, and you probably know what it is but for the people who don't know, I'm just gonna explain.0:13:29.0 Mischa Z: When things happen in life we are either at cause, in other words, we take responsibility for everything that happens to us in our life. Whether it's this guy just crashed into me, rather than blaming that person, we take the responsibility, Okay, what did I do? Or What am I not doing? Or what's going on in my mind, that is creating this reality around me, what is causing this to happen? So, you're either gonna take responsibility or you're at the effect. And we're at the effect of something, it's always something outside of us. It's her, it's him. It's my boss. It's this guy, it's... It's whatever, right? So there's a problem when you're at the effect of something is you give up your power to that person or to that situation, because if it's like, Oh well, it's him doing it to me, essentially what you're saying is that that person controls you and control your life, and has the power over you. So what we have to do, no matter what it is, I don't care if you caught your wife cheating on you, if... Like I said, somebody crashed in your car, your boss fired you. I don't care how bad it is.0:14:38.7 Dom the Hypnotist: You have to take responsibility and go, okay, it's not their fault, it's my fault, yes, they did that. But what am I doing or what am I not doing that's allowing this to happen? What am I doing or not doing that's allowing people to treat me this way, right? So going back to my client, I explained this concept, but I said, "Look, he's so manipulative and all this stuff," and I said, "Is it that he's a good manipulator, or are you allowing him to manipulate you?" And it was like a light bulb went off in her head and she was like," Well... " and I said, "Well, think about this for a second.0:15:16.0 Dom the Hypnotist: Do you think your ex, boyfriend or fiance is a good manipulator? Let's say I took him and I put him with a high, high level manipulator," let's think about the general of an army is somebody whose job is to do manipulation, now, manipulation isn't always... Isn't always a bad thing? It's just... Manipulation is good or bad, right? Your heart manipulates body to perform better. So I said, "If we took him and we put him with this guy... Is he a good manipulator?" And she was like, "Yeah, yeah, I guess, you're right?" I said, "Yeah, so it's not that he's a good manipulator, you're allowing him to manipulate you, and once you realize that and you go, oh, okay. It's me that's doing it. So what am I doing or what am I not doing that's allowing him to treat me that way?" The same thing with bullies.0:16:08.0 Mischa Z: Yes.0:16:08.6 Dom the Hypnotist: People always wanna blame the bully, blame the bully, blame the bully and... Yes, I understand that, but when you take your focus off the other person. You go okay, what am I doing or not doing well? Okay, well, my body language is communicating certain things, my tonality is communicating certain things, the way that I walk, everything is communicating to this person that they can treat me this way. Now, once you realize that you go, Okay, what can I do to fix that? Well, I can do some speaking classes...0:16:35.9 Mischa Z: Can I ask you a question? 0:16:37.3 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah, yeah, yeah.0:16:38.9 Mischa Z: So would you suggest like anybody listening, and we said, Hey, for this step number one, figure out why this is happening, and we want you to understand that you're... The effect is not them it needs to be you... Would you suggest like... Yeah, would you suggest like writing an inventory for that or write down what's that...0:17:07.5 Mischa Z: What do you mean? Which part? Write down, which part? 0:17:10.2 Dom the Hypnotist: For example, if your client, for example, they said, "I am being manipulated." So you would say, How could you help somebody, like somebody who's listening and they're going all right, I'm ready to take accountability...0:17:27.5 Dom the Hypnotist: Right, right, right.0:17:28.3 Mischa Z: Literally, how could you help them take accountability? Reframe that statement, write down what you think the problem is, my ex is a son of a bitch, why don't you reframe that or...0:17:44.4 Dom the Hypnotist: I would reframe that as, "Sorry your ex is a son of a bitch, maybe you have low standards... " right? It's true. My boss is treating me this way, well, maybe you just don't have a backbone. So again, there's no real exercise that I do with people, but when I explain this concept, people get it, they go.0:18:08.8 Mischa Z: Love it.0:18:09.5 Dom the Hypnotist: Right, yeah. I can't sit here and complain about the bully and be, it's him, it's a bully about... No, it's not, it's you... Because again, if you spoke a certain way, if you had a certain belief system about yourself, if you pick martial arts or whatever, nobody's gonna mess with you, you don't even have to say it, people just know they pick up telepathically or unconsciously they know, don't mess with that guy, right don't treat this person that way. So that's the first thing, because again if people are always blaming others and they don't take responsibility they're powerless. The other thing that's important going back to these different areas. So we all have what are called limiting beliefs and limiting decisions, so limiting belief is just a belief that we have that limits us being able to create a certain reality for ourselves. So I'll give you an example of limiting beliefs that I used to have... I used to have the belief that every time something is going good, that something bad is gonna happen, right? And a lot of people have this belief.0:19:25.5 Mischa Z: Waiting for the other shoe to drop.0:19:27.8 Dom the Hypnotist: Like, Oh, shoot, man it's getting too good. What's gonna happen? It's going to... Around the corner. Well, here's the thing, if you have that belief that therefore becomes your reality. So we will unconsciously for the most part, which means we're not aware of it, match our outside reality to match that belief. So once we get to that point, we'll self-sabotage, we'll do all these things so that we basically confirm that it's true. So when I real, I didn't even know I had that belief 'til I was 31 right, when I went through this process of... So once I realized I had it we go back, we find out what it is, So for me, what it was, you know my parents had been there like 15 and 17, they weren't, they didn't stay together, so you know, I would split time between my parents and so my mom when she was 18, she actually joined the military.0:20:19.2 Mischa Z: Okay.0:20:19.8 Dom the Hypnotist: And so by that time I was two, three years old, and when she joined the military, if you're not married, you can't live with your parent, right, so you somebody else has to watch you or whatever, if you're a single mother. I don't know if it's the same for single father... Yeah, maybe it's changed but this is 30 years ago, whatever.0:20:36.2 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:20:36.7 Dom the Hypnotist: So she ended up going off to boot camp, the whole thing, and I don't know, a year into it or whatever, she ended up meeting my stepdad and they got married. So when I was about three or four years old, when I was living with my family, splitting time between my grandparents and my dad's and all that, everything was going good, and then my mom got married, so then boom, I get shipped off and then I move across the country to Maryland right. Then we're in Maryland for a year or two. And you know, if you know anybody in the military, they move around all the time. So after about a year or two, once I'm settled in, I've got my new little friends in preschool and all that... Boom, Now we moved to Hawaii, and then we're in Hawaii for about four or five years. Everything's going good again. You know, I'm really doing excelling in sports, I have a bunch of friends, the whole thing, and then when I was about 10 years old, we had to move to Washington, and then we lived in Washington for two years. You get the point.0:21:30.5 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:21:30.5 Dom the Hypnotist: So, as subconsciously, as a survival mechanism, I developed a belief like, Hey, don't get too settled in, don't get too excited because everytime you do, something bad happens and you know, moving for a kid is a pretty traumatic experience.0:21:46.7 Mischa Z: It is.0:21:47.2 Dom the Hypnotist: You're the new kid at school. You always got a freaking like prove yourself, you gotta worry about people picking on you, the whole thing, so as a survival tool, my subconscious or unconscious mind created that belief system, so then throughout my entire life, because I had that belief, it manifested itself over and over again, right so when my relationships were really good, that would go bad or my friendships were really good, they would go bad, when I was working out and I was in great shape in the gym, everything, I would get an injury, when I was doing really well financially, I would somehow self-sabotage and put myself, you get it? So now, that I've gotten rid of that belief and I realize, Look, when things are going good, they continue to get better. And that's what happens, yeah, there's little blips and there's little days where you don't want, and things don't always go my way, but instead of it, my life being like this, it's more like this.0:22:43.8 Mischa Z: Love that.0:22:44.2 Dom the Hypnotist: You get little, little tiny bliss, but it's always consistently getting better.0:22:48.7 Mischa Z: Love it, yes.0:22:49.5 Dom the Hypnotist: So we gotta go through, limiting beliefs, and then the last thing is going through and figuring out something that's called getting rid of what we would call your negative motivation, or in other words your pain motivator, so when we're motivated in life, we are either motivated to avoid pain or we are motivated towards pleasure. Okay, so the thing with pain motivation is, it's very, very powerful right, we've all been there before, or you're super broke and you got two pennies are up together... You're pretty freaking motivated to get out of that situation, right because like, Oh my God, it's so painful, I gotta get out of it.[chuckle]0:23:31.8 Mischa Z: Necessity is the mother of invention.0:23:33.6 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah, exactly, it's like Okay, I have to do it.0:23:36.5 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:23:36.8 Dom the Hypnotist: Well when we're in that point, you know, here's the pain, here's being broke or out of shape, or I just had a heart attack, or I just had to break up or whatever, we feel that pain. Boom! The motivation kicks in. But then what happens as soon as we're not really feeling that pain point anymore, what happens to that motivation...0:23:54.3 Mischa Z: Right it tapers off, or it's that whole.0:23:56.9 Dom the Hypnotist: We procrastinate, we make excuses, we self-sabotage, we don't show up on time, we do it, and then all the way back down where you feel that pain again and then... Boom. The motivation kicks in. So pain, motivation causes very inconsistent results, so now, pleasure motivation, which is the opposite of that, instead of focusing on what you want to... On what you want to avoid, we focus on what you want to go towards the pleasure that you wanna experience, so for example, going back to finances rather than thinking yourself, Man, I don't wanna be broke, I don't wanna be stressed out about money, I don't wanna worry about money, I don't want to... Whatever. Now you're thinking, because, here's the thing, do people not wanna be broke, no, that's not what they actually want. What they want is to have financial success or abundance or freedom or whatever it is. So once we can hyper-focus on what it is you actually want, then that over time and patience, that's, that becomes our new reality, so now what happens is, it's a little bit easier said than done.0:25:04.3 Dom the Hypnotist: We all know that, like or not everybody, but a lot of people know that. But what's happening that even though we know that, we keep going back to the pay motivators. Well, what happens... When we go through our life, you know our subconscious mind, its number one objective is protection, is survival, above everything else. So when we go through life and we experience, "negative events" and I put that in quotes because there's no such thing as a negative event, there's no such thing as a positive event, all events in life are neutral, the only thing that gives it a negative or positive is the perception of the person who's observing the event, so.0:25:40.8 Mischa Z: Love that.0:25:41.2 Dom the Hypnotist: When we "go through negative experiences" our subconscious mind will hold on to that experience because it thinks it's protecting us Right. So going to the finances, if you grew up broke, if your parents struggled with money, if you lived in a cockroach infested apartment, if you lived in a bad neighborhood, if... You know, when you're 18 years old, you got yourself into credit card debt, all these things that build up, build up, build up, will, when we're trying to focus on pulling ourselves out of that, we're like, okay, focus on the financial freedom, focus on abundance, focus on this, in the back of our head or sub-conscious is like yeah, but remember that one time? This happened, remember when you grew up. And this happened.0:26:23.4 Dom the Hypnotist: What we have to do is we have to go back and we have to resolve all the "negative events" that we're holding on to subconsciously, and then once you resolve it and our subconscious goes, "Oh, that wasn't a negative event, it was actually a positive experience that's helping me in my life." Then you just clean all that stuff out, and now when you start to focus on your future abundance, creating success, everything else, then it's much, much easier because you've resolved all that stuff. Does that make sense? 0:26:51.1 Mischa Z: It does. It makes absolute sense.0:26:53.2 Dom the Hypnotist: And the other thing is, we get what we focus on. So if we focus on what we don't want, that's exactly what we get. We've all heard, don't look at the color black, don't see the color black, don't notice it... And then black is everywhere, right? So maybe it's I don't wanna be broke, I don't wanna be stressed, I don't wanna be worried. Your reticular activating system going, "Alright, Dom wants to be broke, he wants to be stressed, he wants to be worried," and then we'll self-sabotage, so... And it's the same thing in relationships, it's the same thing with health. So that's what I would tell people if they are struggling in those lives, number one, take back responsibility, find out what your limiting beliefs are, get rid of them, and then get rid of that pain motivation, so you can make the things in your life happen at a rapid pace.0:27:34.6 Mischa Z: That's beautiful, that's beautiful. When you're doing your work with a client and they roll in and they're open-minded, how... I guess then you would start implementing the hypnotherapy techniques that you use, what's the arc of change of... I'm not sure if I'm asking this right, but how soon could somebody feel better? And I'm not saying they have to have riches or a new relationship or be back in fighting shape, but perhaps they get that relief or that assurance that, yeah, I'm heading in the right direction.0:28:20.9 Dom the Hypnotist: I tell people all the time, I'm a hypnotist, I'm not a magician. So I can only facilitate, I can't magically make you rich, I can't magically... You have to meet me halfway. So when I work with clients, I give them certain homework assignments, things to do, because it's a do-with process, it's not just, I'm gonna lay here and do all this and then magically in a month from now, I'm gonna win a million dollars in a lottery. Okay. Yeah, maybe that can happen, totally, but we're gonna be realistic. So to answer your question right away, so when people... Number one, many of us have beliefs that we're unconscious to, right? We're not aware of it. Like I told you, I had the belief that every time something's going good, something's going bad, or something bad is gonna happen. I didn't know that until I was 31. So when you become conscious of the limiting beliefs and things that you have that are going on, that in and of itself, just becoming aware of it, will start to release those limiting beliefs, right? 0:29:21.5 Dom the Hypnotist: So I have a client recently, we did our first session, and her whole thing was like, she made great money, but somehow she would always give it back, always give it back, always give it back. And what it was... And she wasn't aware of this when we brought it to her conscious what it was, is that throughout her life, her dad basically was always like her hero, right? He would always come and save the day ever since she was a kid, and then throughout high school her car would break down, dad's there to fix it. This happened and dad's got the money. So unconsciously, she was doing that, basically self-sabotaging her life so that her dad can come and save her, because she wanted to fill that from her dad, and then she knows that her dad wants to feel that... Wants to be that hero.0:30:11.8 Mischa Z: Yeah, he wants to be the hero.0:30:13.2 Dom the Hypnotist: Exactly, and it was so funny when she was telling me that I'm getting... I don't know why I'm getting the chills talking about this, but it's just... It's just funny, I'm thinking about my daughter. But it's so funny because that's how dads are, that's kind of like what we do. And I was watching a movie a week before that, and in the movie, everything starts going bad with the family and the dad, the daughter was not really connecting with the dad, and she's like, "Yeah, whatever, dad." That kind of attitude. And then when the family got into a sticky situation, the dad was like, "I've been waiting for this moment in my entire life," and I was like, I know what you mean. Sometimes I wish somebody would do something so I can be the hero. So it's like, once she became aware of that, all of a sudden she's like, "Oh, I'm doing this little dance with my dad, and it's how we filled our relationship and it's not necessary." And then within that moment, now that she's aware of it, when she starts to do it again, she go, "No, no, no, this is not right. This is only enabling me to continue to self-sabotage, so I have to stop, set up boundaries," that's another thing, setting up boundaries between you and others and yourself. And so yeah, so right away, that was our...0:31:24.6 Mischa Z: That's beautiful.0:31:26.1 Dom the Hypnotist: Our second session is next week, but yeah, she literally... And she's like, "I can't believe what just came to mind. I never would have thought," and there were some other stuff in there as well. But yeah, one session right away.0:31:39.5 Mischa Z: Beautiful, thank you so much for that. I have a question for you. You said homework assignments, why don't you go down your top three or four homework assignments that you have people do, if you'd be willing to do that. Yeah.0:31:53.5 Dom the Hypnotist: Some homework assignments are gonna be specific to that person, so for example, her, she's unconsciously spending money, spending money, spending money, so we have to have her track her finances, what is she spending on a daily basis? If somebody is overweight, they're unconscious to how many calories they're consuming on a daily basis, so we have to get them to track their calories so they can be aware of it consciously, right? 'Cause if you don't know how many calories you're eating, you're at 3000-4000 for the day, you have no clue. But when you track it and you're at 2000, you go, "Oh, shoot, do I really wanna eat this extra, whatever?" And then you're probably gonna know it's not... And then it'll be... It'll go away. So a lot of it is tailored to specific people, but then there are certain things that I'll have everybody do. So one thing is making a list of everything that you don't want in your life. I don't wanna have anxiety. I don't wanna...0:32:44.6 Dom the Hypnotist: I don't wanna feel depressed anymore, I don't want to be broke, I don't wanna be alone. I don't want whatever. Everything you can imagine that is in your mind that you don't want. Okay? So the purpose of writing that down is because... So there's the four stages of learning. The first stage of learning is what we call unconscious incompetence. So unconscious means we're not aware, and incompetence, we're doing something wrong. So most of the time, like I said, every time something's going good, something's going bad, I was unconscious incompetent. I had no idea that that was a belief that I had.0:33:21.5 Mischa Z: Ignorant. We're just ignorant to it.0:33:23.0 Dom the Hypnotist: 'Cause we're ignorant to it. So once you write it on paper and you sit there and you think, and you really put your mind into it, certain things will be like, "Okay, these are obvious." But then other things will pop up like, Oh, I wouldn't realize I was thinking about that. Okay, good.0:33:37.7 Mischa Z: So good.0:33:39.1 Dom the Hypnotist: Then what we do... So once you do that, you graduate to the second stage of learning, which is conscious competence... Sorry, conscious incompetence. So now you're still doing it wrong, but you're aware of what you're doing wrong, so you can at least identify it.0:33:57.7 Mischa Z: I love it.0:33:58.3 Dom the Hypnotist: So that's... When we write it down, we go, Okay, this is what I'm doing wrong. Then what I have them do is I'll take that piece of paper and I have them write down what it is that they actually want instead. Okay. And I remind them in a specific way. Now, the reason we're doing this going back to the pain, motivation, pleasure, is because again, somebody doesn't actually not want anxiety. What do they want? They wanna feel calm, they wanna feel at peace, they wanna feel confident, they wanna believe in themselves, they wanna... Whatever. So those are two different pictures in our mind. When you're thinking about, I don't want anxiety, when you think about I don't want anxiety, you feel anxious.0:34:38.7 Dom the Hypnotist: But when you think about, Okay, I wanna feel confident and secure and calm or whatever, you get a completely different picture, and then thoughts create pictures in our mind, those pictures create feelings in our body and then we act based off those feelings. So if we're always thinking, I don't want anxiety, I don't want anxiety, I don't want anxiety, our pictures in our mind is anxiety, anxiety, anxiety. We feel anxious and we act anxious. But if it's calm, confident, whatever, it creates a different picture. So I have them flip it. So then by doing that, they graduate to the third stage of learning, which is conscious competence. So they're... Competence means they're doing it right, but they have to make a conscious effort. They have to... Oh wait, I'm having that negative thought, switch it to this.0:35:24.8 Mischa Z: Love it.0:35:25.7 Dom the Hypnotist: And then what will happen is through the process of doing the work that we do, releasing negative emotions, beliefs, all this other stuff, is they will graduate to the fourth stage of learning, which is unconscious competence, which means you're doing it correctly and you don't even know you're doing it correctly.0:35:41.9 Dom the Hypnotist: We've all done this before. The first time you learn how to drive, you don't know what... You're using two feet, you're all jacked up, you don't even know you're doing it wrong. And then your dad goes, Hey, it's one foot dude. Take it off the gas. So then the next time you go to do it, you're like, Oh, wait a minute. And then you make that conscious effort like, "Wait, take my foot off. Okay. Press the gas, press the break." And then after doing it for a little while, we're freaking talking on the phone, typing in our GPS, driving on the freeway, doing all this crazy stuff, and we're just unconsciously competent. So that's the level that we get to, is having it to where their brain is just programmed to automatically visualize and to think about what it is they want, the pleasure motivation instead. Now, there's something really important, and this may help a lot of people because we've all done affirmations before or tried it or heard about it.0:36:38.0 Dom the Hypnotist: But how many times do those affirmations come true. Not a lot. Okay. And there's a couple of reasons why. Number one is, most of the time, sometimes you'll hear like a 30-year guru who's been in the personal development space for a really long time, and they're very, very successful and they've done it, they have proof, track record, the whole thing. And they'll say, "Okay, you just have to write down: I am a millionaire every day." Until it comes true. The problem with that is that when we affirm things that aren't true, our subconscious mind will not take it on as a suggestion. So if I just sit here, watch... We'll do it together, Mischa. Close your eyes.0:37:27.0 Mischa Z: Okay.0:37:28.9 Dom the Hypnotist: Say what's... Well, let's say, I don't know, maybe you are worth this kind of money, I don't know. But let's say in your head, I'm worth $10 million.0:37:38.8 Mischa Z: Okay.0:37:39.5 Dom the Hypnotist: Okay. Now, what does that little voice in your head tell you? 0:37:43.5 Mischa Z: Yeah, right. [laughter]0:37:44.1 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah, right. Exactly. So imagine every day you're writing, you're affirming something that isn't true, isn't true, isn't true, isn't true, your subconscious is rejecting it. It's actually causing more harm than good, because here's what happens. Imagine you're in a relationship with somebody, and all they did was lie to you every day. Well, eventually you're gonna stop believing the things that they say and you're gonna have distrust. So our conscious mind is like the father, the mother, the parent, and our subconscious mind is like the child. Most of us don't realize that our subconscious is in the background, it's operating on its own. So if you're constantly lying to your child, your child is like, "Hey man, I don't believe anything you're saying." So when you create that distrust, it actually has the opposite effect. Now, what we wanna do, again, as a parent, we wanna build trust between our children so that our children will trust us and believe the things that we say. So when we affirm things, we have to affirm things that are actually true. So close your eyes again. Now, I don't know, I don't know, what's a financial goal that you have that you haven't achieved yet, that you want. Let's say a million dollars, 10 million, whatever.0:38:57.3 Mischa Z: Yeah. Okay. Let's say, let's say liquid for $2 million.0:39:01.5 Dom the Hypnotist: Perfect. So I want you to say, I am focused on being... Creating $2 million in liquid assets.0:39:11.6 Mischa Z: I am focused on...0:39:14.2 Dom the Hypnotist: Creating $2 million in liquid assets.0:39:16.4 Mischa Z: Good. I am focused on creating $2 million in liquid assets.0:39:20.7 Dom the Hypnotist: Perfect. Now, what does that little voice tell you and how does it feel now? 0:39:24.4 Mischa Z: Yeah, feels good. I'm like, "Heck, yeah. Let's get this done."0:39:28.0 Dom the Hypnotist: Right. Yeah. You feel it, you...0:39:29.9 Mischa Z: Yeah. Dude, literally, my house just got lighter. I'm like...0:39:35.4 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah, you're like... Because now it's true. You are focused on creating that and you don't have it now, and that's okay, but now your subconscious goes, "Okay, that's what we're focused on? We're focused on creating two million dollars?" I don't care if you have two dollars in your bank account or 200000. If you are at that whatever level that is true, so then once it's true, your subconscious will take it on as a suggestion. And once it takes on as a suggestion, it will allow you to start to manifest that into your reality. But again, going back to the guru, sometimes they're so far removed from where they were 30 years ago that they forget... Yeah, they did want this to come true, but they were more focused on the realistic steps to get there, right? 0:40:18.4 Mischa Z: Yeah, yeah.0:40:19.9 Dom the Hypnotist: And that's another major thing with the homework, to answer your question, to circle back, so when I have them write that, I don't have them say I want this because they're in the feeling, in the space of wanting. We don't wanna necessarily want something because that doesn't necessarily mean you're gonna get it. But if I tell them I am focused on creating or becoming. Now it's more of, "Okay, I don't have that but I'm making it happen." I'm in the process of doing it as opposed to, I want this, right? It's a different frame of mind.0:40:54.1 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:40:54.4 Dom the Hypnotist: So let's say... So that's another thing and then the other thing is, if there is anything I can go back and tell my younger self, this would probably be it, is to create realistic goals that you can achieve, small, little achievable steps that you can build on because...0:41:12.2 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:41:14.0 Dom the Hypnotist: Again, you hear somebody say, "Oh, just think big and be worth 100 million or a billion." And then what would most of us do? We think about that and we go, "That'll never happen. That seems impossible. What if this happens? What if I get sued? What if this... What about if I have a problem with the police? How am I gonna get insured? And then we go, "Forget it. I don't wanna do it." Right? So it's kind of like this, Why can't you Mischa and when I say Mischa, I want you to build me a... I don't know, maybe you could do this but let's just assume you can't. I want you to build me a...0:41:41.9 Mischa Z: We'll find out.0:41:43.8 Dom the Hypnotist: Right? 0:41:47.7 Mischa Z: Okay.0:41:48.3 Dom the Hypnotist: How overwhelmed would you be at the thought of building a house? 0:41:49.6 Mischa Z: Yeah, it would be fairly overwhelming, for sure.0:41:51.9 Dom the Hypnotist: It'll be very overwhelming. And even if I said, "Look, Mischa it's a two million-dollar, 3 million-dollar house, you can have it free and clear, you just gotta figure out how to build it."0:42:00.5 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:42:01.3 Dom the Hypnotist: It would still be like, "Yeah, that sounds great but I don't know where to start." Right? 0:42:04.7 Mischa Z: Yeah. Yes. Ironically, I do have some experience and I could probably make it happen. But anyway, I get it. I get it, I'm sorry. No, I know.0:42:18.1 Dom the Hypnotist: What's that? 0:42:19.8 Mischa Z: I said, "I don't know." I just... It was funny, I thought I would cope to that. But go on, yes.0:42:25.8 Dom the Hypnotist: So, well what's the first thing you do before you build a house? You don't build the house. What do you do before that? Well, first you gotta find the piece of land that you're gonna build it on, right? And then you gotta get plans. You gotta do all that, but let's assume you have the plans all figured out. The first thing is I gotta go check this piece of land. I just gotta get the weeds and the trash and the grass, anything. I gotta get it cleaned out, right? That's the first step. Now, most people go, "Yeah, I could do that. That seems pretty easy. How hard can that be? I'm just cleaning it up." Right? 0:42:57.6 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:42:58.4 Dom the Hypnotist: Okay, cool. Now we gotta figure out how to flatten it out and some people might think, "Oh my God, I don't know how would I do that?" Think about it. If you had a 10 x 10 foot piece of land like the size of a small room...0:43:10.0 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:43:10.5 Dom the Hypnotist: You could figure out how to make that thing level. So if you could figure that out, you just duplicate your efforts.0:43:15.7 Mischa Z: Love it.0:43:16.4 Dom the Hypnotist: And go through the whole process, right? And then...0:43:17.4 Mischa Z: So good.0:43:17.4 Dom the Hypnotist: Step by step by step, you'd get there.0:43:21.2 Mischa Z: It's beautiful.0:43:21.9 Dom the Hypnotist: But what most people do is they put 90% of their attention on the house and 10% or zero on the what's the next step.0:43:32.5 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:43:32.9 Dom the Hypnotist: But really what we wanna do is we wanna flip it. So 10%, 'cause you still wanna have an idea of where you're going and what...0:43:40.8 Mischa Z: Yeah, the vision.0:43:41.7 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah, the you wanna have the vision so 10, 20% goes on the house, and the other 80, 90% is what's the next step. What's the next step? 0:43:49.3 Mischa Z: It's beautiful.0:43:49.9 Dom the Hypnotist: What's the next step? 0:43:50.8 Mischa Z: It's beautiful.0:43:53.5 Dom the Hypnotist: So most people, when they come to me, they just have unrealistic expectations. I wanna lose 60 pounds. When's the last time you lost five pounds? [laughter]0:44:00.1 Dom the Hypnotist: Okay, so let's get to five pounds. Okay, cool. Then they get excited like, "Yeah, I could lose five pounds in two weeks. Cool." Then they do that, Okay, listen to... And then through time and patience and breaking it down before you know it, they're 60 pounds lighter and they're in the best shape of their life, right? So same thing financially. Rather than the 2 million, it's like, "Okay, I gotta save up. How do I get to 10 thousand, 20 thousand, 30, 50, 100, right? 0:44:22.9 Mischa Z: Yeah. It's beautiful. Dom, so so so good. Thank you for the last nuggets there. I'm gonna cut us off here really quick, and I think you've just over-delivered in such a massive way, so thank you, and thank you for... That little visualization was so good.0:44:44.9 Dom the Hypnotist: I am focused on creating today, yeah.0:44:46.7 Mischa Z: Yeah, it's beautiful. And so, audience here everyone who's listening and partaking, if this interview with Dom was fantastic and you wanna get even more content from Dom, upgrade to the all X all access pass for that bonus interview. And any final thoughts that we did not get a chance to cover, Dom? 0:45:13.1 Dom the Hypnotist: I mean, if you're thinking about signing up for this program or doing any personal development, this is what I always tell people, "Look, if you're on the fence"... I don't know how much it is or whatever, but if you're on the fence about it, I always think, "Okay, what's the worse gonna happen? You're gonna sign up for this plan and then maybe you don't really get much out of it. But on the upside potential, if you even just get one little nugget out of whatever, the VIP training and program...0:45:39.3 Mischa Z: Yeah.0:45:40.8 Dom the Hypnotist: Now, I know even one nugget, maybe certain people buy with this, certain people don't, and there's gonna be that person or those people they go, "Oh yeah, I have that same stupid belief, oh my God." Or "I've been thinking about doing too big too soon, and I gotta bring it." So even just one nugget, was worth whatever the cost of the VIP training is. So if you're on the fence about it, just freaking do it and I know it will be worth it.0:46:07.9 Mischa Z: I love that. Thank you so much for that Dom. And again, they can... Or not again, everybody can find you at domthehypnotist.com, and they can actually...0:46:23.1 Dom the Hypnotist: Go to... It's better if you find me on Instagram or YouTube. Those are the two main platforms that I interface with people with.0:46:28.1 Mischa Z: Okay.0:46:30.3 Dom the Hypnotist: So yeah, if you wanna go on there and then... Are you talking about to do a consultation, is that...0:46:33.5 Mischa Z: Yes, so I was just gonna say for a consultation, they can get a free consultation so go ahead and tell them where they can do that.0:46:38.6 Dom the Hypnotist: Yeah, yeah. So if you go on to my YouTube or on my Instagram, and I don't know if you're gonna have a link, I can send you the link to schedule a consultation, but if any of this stuff kind of buy with you and you thought like, "Okay, yeah." There are certain things that I don't help people with 'cause I don't feel I'm the best person for it, and a lot of times I have to turn people... I turn more people away than I accept just because I can't help everybody with every problem, right? So I don't feel like if somebody has a drinking problem... And it's not that I don't wanna help them, it's just that I've never experienced that, and so I don't know what it's like, so I really can't connect on that level. I'm not confident in myself that I could help somebody quit drinking. So quit drinking, quit smoking, things like that, it's not really my thing. But again, the relationship stuff, the health stuff, the career stuff, if that is something, fill out the... Click the link I'll share it with you... Fill out the form. If it's something we feel like we can help you with, that we can honestly and truly help you improve on, then we'll schedule a consultation with someone from my team and they go through and see if we'd be a good fit.0:47:42.2 Mischa Z: Perfect, perfect. Fantastic. And the link is next to this interview, so anybody watching, please click on the link. Get your free consultation, and then, where was I here? Yes, click the button on this page to get unlimited access to all of these interviews and the all X all access pass, so I'm gonna end right now and then we'll get started on our next session.0:48:12.3 Dom the Hypnotist: Okay, cool.
A 7 minute meditation to let go of judgment and our ideas of people so we can see them in a new light. I focus on three sentences that highlight this idea.“Let us be still an instant and forget all things we ever learned. All thoughts we had. And every preconception that we hold of what things mean and what their purpose is.”“Let us forget our own ideas of what the world is for. We do not know.”“Let every image held of everyone, be loosened from our minds and swept away.”Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

We're going to try a meditation. And the purpose of this meditation is to let go of judgment and our ideas of people. So we can perhaps see them in a new light. So Let's get started. This meditation will take probably 6, 7, 8 minutes, and we're going to start with breathing. I'm outside in the wind. So I'm trying to get situated. And it's kind of funny. Okay. So I want you to sit comfortably in your chair. I want to you to start taking some long, deep breaths. So big breath in. Now, big breath out. Big breath in. Long breath out. Continue with these long breaths in through your nose And out through your nose. I want you to roll your head from side to side. As you relax and loosen your neck with your long breaths, Feel the vertebrae, vertebrae crunching, perhaps. Your arms, let them dangle by your sides. And perhaps gently shake out your arms, release that energy, Continue breathing with me long breasts and through the nose. Long breath out through the nose. Being gentle and kind to your, your body, your thoughts, your mind. I'm going to read a few sentences. "Let us be still an instant and forget all things we ever learned. All thoughts we had. And every preconception that we hold of what things mean and what their purpose is."Mischa Z: 03:39 Let's sit quiet quietly with that thought, As you breathe in through your nose, Out through your nose, I'm going to read that again. "Let us be still an instant and forget all things we ever learned. All thoughts we had and every preconception that we hold of what things mean and what their purpose is." And let's sit quietly for a minute as that thought swirls through our mind.Mischa Z: 04:56 Next sentence. As we continue to breathe deep breaths in and deep breaths out, "Let us forget our own ideas of what the world is for. We do not know." Long breaths in through the nose.Mischa Z: 05:54 Perhaps you hear a car drive by as you sit still, Perhaps you hear a bird chirp in the background. Perhaps you hear my wind chimes ringing, gently. Use these sounds to free your mind and loose your brain of those thoughts, those preconceptions. Ideas of what we think the world is for. And our last sentence. Last thought. "Let every image held of everyone, be loosened from our minds and swept away." Breathe that in. Long breath out. That is worth another read. "Let every image held of everyone, be loosened from our minds and swept away."Mischa Z: 07:57 I want you to use this time to see the space, to release your thoughts of judgment, of places, things, and for, particularly people. And let innocence and new and freeing thoughts flow through, Which will allow you to see people, even people that you think, you know, in a fresh new light. Take a big breath in. Long breath out through the mouth. If your eyes are closed, blink your eyes open and roll your neck from side to side, give yourself a big hug and take these new, fresh thoughts, awareness ,perception out into your day. Thank you for participating in meditation number one on the Bitch Slap Accelerated Path To Peace Podcast. Have a good day.

I finish "Man's Search For Meaning" on my camping trip. And looking up the side of the mountain I immediately have an opportunity to put his ideas in practice.

Victor E Frankl, Frankl Frankl. Yes. Victor E Frankl. "Man's Search For Meaning" more thoughts of my camping trip. Um, on the last episode, I was going to say how Victor Frankl perhaps inspired me, or I got to draw a direct correlation between service and, um, how Victor Frankel thinks what drives man is meaning having meaning in your life. And Victor breaks it down into three main ways. It's not necessarily what I'm going to do on this episode because I've not prepared. Gosh, you'd hope I would be, but there's lots of winging it these days. Um, it seems that there's always something going on. Let it rip, let it rip, take the messy action. Anybody out there wanting to create a podcast, a blog, a YouTube channel who wants to start, you know, getting their thoughts, ideas, their message out there, or maybe they just want to entertain who knows what the motive is, but they want to use a blog, a YouTube channel, um, a podcast as a mechanism for this or this, the source to do that.Mischa Z: 01:29 Take the messy action. Just take the messy action. That's what I'm going to tell you because you probably, well, I'm guessing you don't have an audience yet, so no one's going to be there to judge you. And if you do have an audience while they know who you are anyways, so no big deal take the messy action is which what I seem to be gifted with doing, taking the messy action on my podcast. So Viktor Frankl, um, you know, one of the things he talks about is his, his meaning how having a purpose in your life, and it does not have to be big and it doesn't have to be, it's having meaning in the moment. That's what it is. It's having meaning meaning in the moment. And he talks a lot about it in regards to the concentration camp experience and how people can derive meaning in life, even though they're headed towards death rapidly or they're seeing it or, or all of this.Mischa Z: 02:40 And I am, I'm hesitant to talk about it because it's so extreme. And I'm a white boy from Wyoming who now lives in Encinitas, California making podcast episodes. So, um, one thing I had been saying to a few friends is, you know, as we're trying to detach from controlling people, places and things, and trying to learn how to find joy or meaning in, in the moment and cede control of, of how we think people are supposed to act, feel, think what they're supposed to do, you know, as we're scaling God up bigger and bigger, and then, you know, inevitably someone brings these extreme circumstances of murderers and rapists and, you know, military leaders or, you know, leaders who do lots of damage. Right? And I had this thought of like, well, can we have our god so big and trust so much that there is something greater than this moment of our human existence, that if we were to have an executioner or we could smile lovingly to that executioner, or as they were opening the door to, you know, the, the, the hangman's noose for us, and I'm doing the best I can to talk about that idea, to be willing, to talk about that idea, to conceptualize that idea, given my, given my circumstances.Mischa Z: 04:35 Um, and so fast forward to reading Victor Frankel's book, and then in essence, he's talking about love and finding meaning in the moment as you're, you know, suffering extremely and perhaps dying, um, or being put to death. Um, I'm going to still work on how to talk about that. I think they're, they're interesting ideas. One idea that he floats is, um, is like: if you put even a small amount of gas in an enclosed space, the gas evenly distributes through that space, perfectly, and he correlates that to that, to suffering. He's like, so it doesn't matter how much suffering you have in a human consciousness. If it's a little, it's going to fill up the space. Same as gas fills up the void. And so he's like, Hey, his thesis is suffering a suffering, which is pretty crazy, right? Cause this dude went through for three years in four concentration camps.Mischa Z: 06:07 Um, anyway, I get my, thank you for listening to that. I'm going to try to continue to talk about the ideas that were sussed out, um, by Viktor Frankl in his book and within me. And one thing was, is finding meaning one way to find meaning is service. How can you serve in the moment? And, uh, I love that because I'm all about service. I've talked about it on other episodes. It's a big part of, you know, recovery of the recovery community is carrying the message. How can you be of service? And it's obviously within churches and religions and, and there's plenty of nonprofits out there. And so it's, it's this, isn't a new idea by any means on a big scale, as well as on a small scale. Being nice, forgiving, smiling, opening the door for somebody. Like it can be the tiniest things, a gracious nod, letting somebody in within traffic, like letting somebody in without throwing a fit, flipping them off. You know, if somebody cuts you off graciously, be cut off smile, wave. Thank you.Mischa Z: 07:31 Um, so it's, it's about nine o'clock at night on the camping trip and it's dark and there is a heavy, there's this part of a climb to get to the next lake. I wish I could remember what it is, but it was up heavy, heavy, like you almost wanted to have ropes, but you know, people were doing it with backpacks and things. But a couple of guys we look up and all of a sudden we see headlamps at nine o'clock at night, scaling down this chute to get back to crater, to, um, iceberg lake. And, um, it was hard enough for people to do that part of the hike in daylight let alone at night. So it was, it was honestly better than watching Netflix because it's a very far away, but you can see the two headlight beams and a very dramatic, very dramatic.Mischa Z: 08:31 They make it that it takes them half an hour, 45 minutes, whatever it is. And, um, they walked by us because the trail goes by our campsite and we're talking to them for a second. And I say, Hey, I'm inspired all of a sudden, Hey, do you guys need a campsite? Because they're clearly tired by now. It's 10 o'clock at night and you can't see anything to find a campsite. And, um, I happened to know where a couple of campsites were and they were so relieved and so excited and so happy. And, um, and I just thought of Victor Frankl and being of service and, and how in that moment after just finishing his book, I got to ask those guys if I could help them with a campsite. And we showed him this, uh, ridiculous campsite that we found, and they were just so happy.Mischa Z: 09:28 And, you know, I was gratified in the moment gratified in that I had meaning. And, um, it was just a really cool experience and to be in nature, just feeling the whole vibe of that, all the flow of it all. And, uh, yes, I'm doing a quick time check. Um, that's what I've got for you. The serendipitous events that led to me finishing the whole book and then yeah, I would encourage anybody to read "Man's Search For Meaning". Great, great book, just a great, great book. And I'll talk more about it. Love to all again, I'm going to say, get your tails out there and go camping. Get out in nature detached for two or three days, if you can, but I guess you can do silent retreats, all sorts of things. Um, many people are doing that. I'm just going to encourage you to do it again. If you have done it and absolutely get out there, if you haven't. All right, I'm done peace out.
I brought one book on my camping trip. Victor E Frankl's “Man's Search For Meaning". And circumstances allowed me to read the whole thing. And after a long hike there is nothing like jumping in a mountain lake and drying off on a granite slab.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

"Man's Search For Meaning", Victor E Frankl, and not necessarily about the book, but just about an idea that I had on how to, how to talk about the book, I suppose. Um, and then the serendipitous events on how I got to read the whole book during my camping trip. So again, if you're just jumping in, I just got back from this amazing two or three day camping trip at, uh, at mammoth lakes in mammoth, um, which is in the Southern Sierras, I believe, you'd think I'd know. Um, anyhow, uh, so I go on this trip on this camping trip. I bring a book. This book happens to be "Man's Search For Meaning" Viktor E Frankl. I just noticed too, I'm a trip that his name is Victor E victory.Mischa Z: 01:14 I mean, how great is that? I cannot believe I've never noticed that before. So I bring Victor Victor's book, "Man's Search For Meaning" with me and plan on reading. Some of it I don't was absolutely not planning on reading the whole thing. But the hike and was pretty strenuous for me. It was a good, you know, eight miles plus, uh, you know, two or 3000 elevation gain. And you've got a 25 pound pack on 25 pound plus pack on. And so that can be...it was hard on my knees. I'll just be honest with you. So I was definitely knees were sore on day two. So day one, we hike up there. It's beautiful. Great hike. Just unbelievable. We pass, um, a few lakes. Let's see if I can remember what they are. Ghost lake, I think was one of them. I doesn't matter. We ended up at the third lake, however, iceberg lake iceberg lake, which I've talked about and we got to jump in iceberg lake and then lay on the granite, which is just so good. If anybody, if you have an opportunity to jump on a mountain lake that is ice cold and then dry off and heat yourself on a granite slab mother earth, it does not get much better.Mischa Z: 02:44 So the next day we were planning on doing a 10 mile hike with a little bit of elevation gained, moving on to another campsite. But my knees were pretty sore. And I talked about this on a previous episode two ago, maybe, but that I was being encouraged to hike by my camping partner, Kyle, hello, Kyle, if you're listening and Kyle was like, Hey, let's go. And I was like, I listened to my body and did the self care and was like, no, I am not going. I need a down day. And I cannot tell you what a miracle that is because oftentimes I will just push through it, take some Advil, you know, charge, make it happen, like be strong. And uh, I said, you know what? The universe is telling me, "listen to your body". And I did. And thank goodness I did. So that gave me a full day to hang out at Iceberg lake, which is about, I think it's, you know, nine or 10 it's.Mischa Z: 04:00 I think it was 9,800 feet elevation God's country. It is so beautiful. Just this lake is surrounded on all sides by these massive granted peaks, you know? Um, and then the outlet is where you hike up. That's where the, the, the, um, the lake, you know, turns... The river, drains down, you know, drains out of, out of this out of, I don't know how if I'm saying this right, but it's just beautiful. And the solitude is incredible and the quiet is incredible. And, um, you're far enough out there that a couple people you run into. Um, and so I had an opportunity to dive into "Man's Search For Meaning ",Viktor Frankl and what an intense, heavy, deep book, um, you know, ultimately Viktor Frankl, Viktor Frankl was, and, uh, the death camps during world war II, you know, he started at Auschwitz and then went to three others.Mischa Z: 05:13 So for three years, and he somehow survived and, you know, hence Man's Search For Meaning. And he, you know, he defines his logo therapy, L O G O therapy. I'm not sure if I'm saying that right, but logo, I believe is Latin for "meaning". I believe it is. Anyway. I'll dig back in. I'm not necessarily, this episode is not necessarily to tell you about the meaning of the book, but just to say, I had an opportunity to read the book. And at the same time I need to start. Part of my project is to go on to you...pick three to five groups. Facebook groups that have combined a combined audience of a hundred thousand people. And then you start every day, you do a value post. So a post that adds value to each of those groups, your three to five groups. And every day you answer, it's either two or three questions.Mischa Z: 06:23 Um, question threads, there is three, three questions per group. So to build that habit, those are next steps for me. And so "Man's Search For Meaning”. I just dog-eared so many pages. There were so many great, great sentences and bits of awareness. So my thought was, and hopefully I'll be able to turn some of those inspirations into podcast episodes, but for now I'll finish my thought. It was to take those sentences and create a value post for the group. So what's the sentence. Perhaps I could relate it to an experience of my life in my life. Bam, there's a value post. And that was very exciting to me to be like, oh yes, here's a way here is a way that you can do these daily posts, add value, hopefully create some inspiration or some, you know, some contemplation for people. And then hopefully you inspire them and you inspire them enough that they come look at your Facebook page.Mischa Z: 07:39 Hey, where, who is this guy? Mischa, that's talking about giving us these value bobs as what you'd call them. So that's the theory. So you have that to look forward. You have you get to hear me talk about my progress with that. Does this, as a way to build an audience and to suss out your perfect customer, does it work? Is it effective? And, uh. I thought it was really cool that I listened to my body, held the boundary with my camping friend. Kyle. Stayed at the campsite, just meditated and rested and relaxed and detached and read "Man's Search For Meaning" and had all this great inspiration. So there you have it. I think that's enough for me. I hope I've closed the loop. I'll open another loop. The other loop is next episode. I'm going to talk about how in "Man's Search For Meaning" part of what Victor Frankel's theory is, is that meaning is what drives man, and not pleasure, as Freud says, but meaning. Having meaning and he breaks down meaning and all sorts of cool ways, three ways in particular actually. And they don't have to be...You can still find meaning in the face of your executioner. Which is one thing which is pretty wow. Right? That's what he's talking about. I'm not going to claim to have no that, um, but he does talk about that. But he talks about being of service as one of the ways, you know? Um, and I'm going to tell you how I got to be of service literally after I finished the book. So fun. All right. Love to all. Peace out.
To most, it sounds almost too good to be true: investing in real estate remotely, or virtually, making thousands or having money now, money monthly, money later. And all from the comfort of your own home. How, or, is this possible? Pre-COVID, the United States saw about 4.7 million Americans working remotely. After COVID, experts are saying this has increased by 40%. More important to you and I as real estate investors, our Sellers were lunged 5-years in advance with using technology during the 2020 national lock-down. This means most are now willing to do Zoom type calls. Show houses on FaceTime, and do closings using the web with notaries and virtual legal beagles. We have even figured out how to get boots on the ground to do some of those humanoid tasks that need a live person. Listen closely to my guest speaker's experience today to hear how she lives in another country, and buying houses in America - virtually! Which opens the door for you on always doing bidness in America in an emerging market. Let's get into is now ...
Camping was so good. Hiking for long miles with a heavy backpack. And then jumping in the ice cold mountain lakes. And then laying on the granite slabs in the hot sun. Connecting with mother earth. And how freeing it was to purposely let go of my routines.

What I want to relate that to is, um, uh, upsetting my routine. Upsetting my routine. And in this case, I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing. So routines are awesome. They can be great. I've got a great routine of prayer, meditation, journaling, um, um, A Course In Miracles, you know, reading that every day. And, uh, and so this camping trip through a lot of that in the upheaval and it definitely the timing of those things. And I think it was good. First off, I have been religiously reading A Course In Miracles for at least two years. If I knew the exact date, it would be very fun to know coming up on two years, September, um, I believe would be two years. Yes. Because two years ago, September, I went to, um, where was it called?Mischa Z: 01:23 Yosemite? I went camping and you're 70. So this is really cool. This camping trip was really cool. And the number of levels first off due to the COVID, I hadn't been camping in two, almost two whole years. So, um, last camping trip I did was to Yosemite, which was beautiful and amazing, and we hiked a good 10 miles back into Yosemite. And one of the great things about Yosemite was laying on these granite slabs after swimming in ice cold water. So you hike all day with your 25 pound backpack, 30 pound backpack, whatever it is. And, and then, you know, you get to where you're going, hot, sweaty beat down, me anyway. And then, uh, you jump in these incredible mountains, rivers, streams, lakes, and then it, you know, in Yosemite lay on these granite slabs that are, you know, have been baking in the sun.Mischa Z: 02:36 And it's such a cool way to connect with mother earth and soak in that energy. So powerful. Um, I had an opportunity to do the same sort of a thing up and, um, mammoth lakes, where we went iceberg lake, so hiked all day, lots of elevation game, um, and then to, uh, jump in the iceberg lake, which was called as an iceberg and then lay on the granite and, uh, so, so powerful. Just, gosh, this is nothing like it. Um, anyhow, thank you for listening to that little tangent. I do. I love camping and I think it's so good to get out of nature and oftentimes away from people and or away from mass masses of people, and then also disconnect from the phone. So there was no cell service at all for three days or whatever it was. Um, but I had just started A Course In Miracles when I had gone to Yosemite.Mischa Z: 03:51 I was probably two weeks into A Course In Miracles into the what's called the "workbook for students", which is 365 daily exercises. Some of them are very, um, intense and take a lot. So it's not like a simple little prayer or, I mean, there's some stuff going on on some of those days and the, in the A Course In Miracles workbook for students. And so I was two or three weeks into it, you know, 21, you know, 14 to 21 of the daily exercises. And, and I was absolutely committed to it. So what I did was I printed out the daily exercises then brought them with me to Yosemite and then did them while I was camping, which was awesome. And, uh, you know, fast forward almost two years later, what it's as I record this it's August 30th. Um, by the time this gets published, it will be well into September.Mischa Z: 04:57 So probably the two year anniversary, but I have been diligently doing A Course In Miracles every day. First it was the daily exercises. And then after that, it was the text section of A Course In Miracles and reading a section a day. So each, each chapter is broken into paragraphs. It broken into sections. So reading a section of a paragraph every day and for this trip to mammoth, I thought, you know what? I am just not going to worry about it. I've got this great little, you know, one of the exercises that really resonated with me that I was doing right before I left. I'm trying to find it. It's nowhere to be found. Basically one of it is one of the headlines of it is I will make, "I will make no decision on my today". I will make no decision on my own meaning that we'll turn the source or anti source, the ego, who's it going to be?Mischa Z: 06:07 Are we going to be, are we going to be making decisions with the capital S inner self God, the infinite intelligence, or are we going to be driven making choices with our ego? So I'd love this concept. Um, but anyway, I decided, you know what, I'm going to, I'm going to be easy on myself and let go of some routines every morning, I meditate for an hour. Um, and I have been for awhile, you know, of late the hour. Um, you know, for sometimes I'll go through years perhaps where it's 30 minutes or what have you, but of late it's an hour for the last year. Anyway, thank you for listening here. So, so I was like, I'm going to let go of my morning meditation routine to be flexible. And then my journaling, you're trying to save weight that I said, you know what, I'm going to release.Mischa Z: 07:07 I'm going to release all expectations of this routine of these routines. And it was very powerful. And when you're doing these eight mile hikes, there's a lot of time to focus on breath and make it meditative. So there was plenty of time to, to have meditative experiences. Um, I just found it so powerful. It's so powerful camping trip. Um, I also wanted to talk about, I read "Man's Search For Meaning" by Viktor E Frankl. And, uh, I'll see the next episode part 2, 4, 4, the man's search for meaning, because I think there was some serendipitous events that, that helped bring that about. So anyhow, um, very powerful camping trip. I'm back, I'm exhausted, um, ton of meditation, ton of a ton of meditation. So definitely there was plenty of downtime opportunities to meditate and I did meditate and there was plenty of, of, uh, hiking where meditating focusing on breath, focusing on breath, and then lots of turning to God, just, just lots of consciously talking to source.Mischa Z: 08:35 Uh, so powerful. So good. Just how many end with this. I, I had this backlog of 45 or so episodes recorded and due to the summit I got, I, um, I've been bleeding off my backlog of inventory, so of recorded podcast episodes. So I need, so I'm working on back to, I've said this a couple of times, but getting back to recording an episode every day, anyway, love to all get out there, go camping, get out there with nature, uh, mess with your routines for a couple of days, if you can't. Um, anyway, love to all right.
'Your customers will tell you what they want your product to be. Listening to what the customer wants is half the battle and the key to everything you do.' Andrew Barry Andrew Barry (@bazzaruto) is 'the course guy', a online teacher's teacher and founder of Curious Lion Learning.If a single slogan could describe Andrew, it would be 'The more you learn, the better it gets', a line which he credits to a sporting TV network he used to watch while growing up, a self-confessed sports fanatic, in Cape Town, South Africa. With a start at KPMG as a chartered accountant, Andrew veered off into teaching, having found his niche developing training for corporate companies. His vision is sharp: better learning experiences enhances both brand and culture, and he delights in creating the right digital or hybrid products to deliver just that for his clients. His method? Taking the time to ask in depth questions and listening to what the customer wants. In this interview, Andrew digs deep into the 8 component parts of TOC's (Transformational Online Courses), a term coined after analysing the process which had led him to several of his own personal transformations.Far from the 'sage on the stage', he explains how we learn better from each other, the importance of establishing trust and credibility, and being student-centered. Host Anne Muhlethaler (a course nerd herself) also shares her best and worst online workshops stories, and asks Andrew about how to promote a digital course (when one hates promoting oneself), tech platforms (important or not?) and the opportunities for early movers in the adult digital learning space.For anyone trying to understand online learning, those interested in signing up for a course or perhaps developing their own, this rich interview will leave you not only knowledgeable on the subject but perhaps even yearning to learn something new.

I'm camping up at 9,500 feet and we had to hike 8 miles to get here! It is ridiculously beautiful and the solitude is amazing. The only issue is I've blown out my knees and I can't hike for a day. I need to let people know.

And I had this really cool moment and I thought, you know, like grab the phone and record. And the really cool moment was as soon as I took care of myself, held a boundary and the problem that I needed to fix itself fixed itself, it was physical. Um, my knees super achy. So we're up at iceberg lake, me and my buddy, Kyle, Kyle's a 32 year old charger I'm a 53 year old semiretired charger that you park at some metal. I wish I could remember what it's called. It's about 6,000 feet, 6,500 feet, something like that. Elevation. So we started from Encinitas, which is zero. You were at sea level, drove up to mammoth, spent the night there and then, uh, drove to this meadow where you can park. And then we hiked. It's about eight, eight miles, I believe, eight and a half miles. And you increase your elevation 3,500 feet, 3000 to 3,500 feet. It's a healthy little walk hike, especially if you've got a 25 pound pack on. And so my knees were feeling it, my knees were absolutely feeling it. Um, and, uh, you know, you're going up Hills down Hills, stepping over rocks, you know, jolting your, your knees here and there. And, um, anyway, just to set it up for you, uh, about, uh, there was going to be hiking to do on day two.Mischa Z: 02:20 And my body was like, yeah, you gotta walk out of here, man. And your knees, they're going to need to like recover. Like if you go hiking hard on day two, you are perhaps going to have a really serious issue on day three. Historically, I would push through all of that and, uh, I had the opportunity to not push through. So we're an iceberg lake and oh my gosh, the last that...Speaker 2: 03:00 It's like 600 vertical feet you're climbing. I was like, oh no. And I was thinking about, honestly, I was thinking about all my God, that people who would like climb Everest or K2 or these ridiculous mountains that are the highest in the world that, you know, in a perfect world, you have oxygen which you leave base camp at 16,000 feet? So you're camping at these... These people who climb these mountains are camping and 16,000 feet, you know, they end up climbing... I hit pause while I was waiting for the gust of wind to die down. Um, very isolated up here, which is possible. I've been reading Man's Search For Meaning by Viktor E Frankl. So lots of solitude and reading a really heavy, cool book. I'll save any takeaways from man's search for meaning for a some later episodes.Speaker 2: 04:30 But I noticed I've had this book laying around for a little bit and I just noticed his name is Victor E victory. So cool. I don't know why that just struck me. Um, the really cool thing about the wind up here to the gusts of wind is it's so quiet and there's so much solitude that you can hear the gust of wind coming at you. So, you know, it's coming well before it actually gets to you. And it's so cool that there's that much peace and quiet that you can hear the wind coming, and then you can obviously hear it and feel it as it hits you and hits the pocket of trees that I'm camped in. Um, but, uh, yeah, so Kyle was like, all right, we're going up to the next lake, which it's like Anise or Enid or something. Um, but you have to walk a bunch of, bunch of slurry rocks on the side of a pretty steep slope.Speaker 2: 05:34 And so I grabbed my water bottle to go with him this morning and, you know, made it about 200 feet. And I was like, uh, yeah, my knees really hurt. And I think pushing through and getting the adrenaline to go so the pain goes away is not the thing to do. So it was like, yo Kyle, I'm going to take a down day. I kick it at the camp site. You go hike. And, uh, it was really smart. And anyway, I I've been reading and hanging out and doing a lot of stretching and I just went for this little walk and, uh, my knees are all healthy and feeling good. So I was struck... I was like, holy mackerel, like taking that down day, setting that boundary, holding to it, holding to what I knew my body wanted and needed, and then to have the healthy payoff. Super cool. I do also want to say how good the solitude has been and how freaking beautiful it is. Anybody. If you ever get a chance, come up to Iceberg lake, you can see it, hear it all. You'll hear it. Super good stuff. This gets to be a short episode. Enjoy nature. Have some solitude. Iceberg lake is ridiculously beautiful. It actually reminds me of, I believe what's called a crater lake back in Jackson hole, Wyoming national park, but Iceberg lake right here is surrounded pretty much on all sides by big granite peaks. And Glaciers, whats left of em, melt right into, uh, what is iceberg lake here. And we did go for a little dip yesterday and it is CO OLD (cold), but it was refreshing. All right. Peace out.
A follow up to the "Happiness in the moment episode." This idea of we can be free of circumstances dictating our happiness. And if the circumstance is extreme enough, then it will make us unhappy. I discuss this in relation to having kids. And what if our kids get hurt? Can we find happiness in our genetic code as we are designed by the universe? Can we find happiness and bliss in that versus being upset? Can we be happy in our upsetedness?Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

I am going to try, try to do a follow up episode to the happiness in the moment episode. The last episode I published right before this one was we can find, we can have happiness in any moment. Happiness is a decision and, um, I wanted to do a follow-up email to that. It's very late at night and I am super tired. I am just about to go on a camping trip, leaving tomorrow for four days and, uh, worked hard to get four podcast episodes scheduled. So they're scheduled to be, um, released while I'm gone. So I feel really good about that, but that was, it's a lot of work scheduling four episodes in a day, um, you know, working them all up and editing them and all of that. And then also I put together an email to be sent while I'm gone to my fledgling email list.Mischa Z: 01:18 I now have a fledgling eel key mail list to go along with my fledgling podcast. Perhaps you are on my fledgling email list as well as being a listener of the podcast. And the reason I'm I'm recording this episode as well is I'm about to go on a camping trip. So I won't be recording an episode for most likely four days. My phone will probably run out of battery on the camping trip. Um, and so I doubt if I will be recording anything. And then also I wanted to stretch myself with the idea of this episode. So here we go, happiness in the moment. Part two, happiness is a decision. So in the first happiness is a decision episode. I was talking about that this lady friend, who, whose two children, I had said, Hey, happiness is a decision. And she said, I disagree because one of my kids broke her hip.Mischa Z: 02:33 One of my kids broke her neck and, um, two daughters that are have kids and things. So they're they're of age they're well, you know, thirties or forties or fifties, perhaps even like somewhere in there, these daughters. So, you know, it's this idea of we can be free of circumstances dictating our happiness and part of that as well. If the circumstance is extreme enough, then it will make us unhappy. And so I have kids, this lady has kids and they both have been injured. And so she's upset and she is unhappy. And the way she described it was really interesting. Or this is the way I heard it, right. This could so two things first off as a mother. So I'm a father, right? So as a mother, like moms are genetically designed to be concerned for their kids. I believe, right? As a mother of a mother, any Mo there's listening to this episode, of course, you're going to be worried about your child no matter what their age, my mother, even when I was, you know, in my thirties.Mischa Z: 04:01 And she passed away when I was young forties, I think 40, I don't know how old I was, maybe 45 or something or somewhere in there. But constantly, you know, packing me a lunch for my, for my airplane, rides home, even in my forties, you know, giving me snack packs, whatever. And, uh, when I was young, it used to make me mad in my late teens and early twenties. They'd be like, mom, I'm a grown up. I learned to love it. Of course. Mom being a mom. And of course I miss that. Now, you know, the SA the bagel sandwiches for the plane ride home. And as you're walking out the door, um, she lived in Berkeley and I live in Encinitas, but, um, as a father. So I think this is one way to think about it when your kids are old enough. And you're like, well, my daughter injured herself so I am unhappy.New Speaker: 05:10 That's sort of a, a righteous agenda. It's almost like saying, look what my daughter has done to me to affect my happiness as a father or as a mother. Right. And that's such an interesting way to look at it, to be like, wait a minute. You know? And, and then also at some point we've got to trust in God that our, our kids are going through what they need to go. They need to be. And so the bigger we can grow that the more we're in acceptance of what our kids get to go through. And that would also say, as a mother, I'm assuming genetically who you're, you're by genetic disposition, your have concern and love and worry, and you don't want to see your kids suffer, but can you find happiness in that mothering when your kids are injured or going through a hard time or, or something like that.Mischa Z: 06:25 And I think that's an awesome way to look at it. Same as a father. So instead of as a father, you know, whatever father instincts I have, when the son, my sons are sussing them out of me, his 20 year old boys, young men today they're 20 and 18. Can I find a happiness in my genetic coding as a father versus upsettedness, right? So if they're, if they're missing a college payment due to irresponsibility, and that irritates me as a father, can I find a joy and happiness in that. And that, oh, I know it sounds crazy, but I think that that's the way for me that the more I can look at things like that, the freer I can be because it is a decision. So I think perhaps if I have an opportunity to have a discussion with that lady who was like, no, I am not happy because my kids, her daughters are injured and I got the impression, it was nothing that was life-threatening or anything, but no buts. I'm hedging right there. To say, Hey, like, okay, you feeling your motherly concern? Can you embrace your genetic code and find happiness in that? In your mothering?Mischa Z: 08:17 Anyhow, there you go. Part two, I'm trying to keep my episodes at eight minutes. I noticed when I'm on zoom, I tend to go a little bit longer because it's a lot harder to watch the clock, versus when I'm on my iPhone, I can see the, the timer is much more prevalent. So you know exactly where you are. Time-wise. I'm really practicing on keeping my episodes at eight minutes, mostly because it's easier to edit them easier and quicker. Versus when you start getting into 15 or 20 minute episode, man, that's a lot more work twice as much work. Anyway, I'm done part two happiness in the moment. Can we find happiness as our genetic code as we're designed by the universe? Can we find happiness and bliss in that versus versus being upset? Can we be happy in our upsetedness? How's that? That's a better way to put it. All right. Love to all I'm done. I am camping for four days. Peace out, but no peace out there will be an episode every day. So it's kind of cool. There's there's no gap. All right, I'm done.

And, um, we have, uh, you were on my, um, summit, the Tools For A Good Life Summit. So anybody listening, you can hit pause and go run to www.toolsforagoodlifesummit.com and check out Sheryne's amazing, amazing, um, interview. Right. And you, it was very specific. We were talking about, um, like what would, what steps would you offer somebody to help help them get back on track or whatever? And you just were dropping bomb after bomb, after bomb. So amazing. Um, you are amazing. Um, what, I was thinking beforehand, like I'm literally getting the shivers, thinking about like the, the, the moments of like, yeah, yeah, yeah. What was the best thing you said? And I think it was one of the best things you said was, um, and it might've been on the, uh, VIP bonus section, but before we get to that, do you hold, hold place? I was just gonna say, people might be wondering, well, what does she do? Who is she? And, um, you, uh, you are a, um, how am I going to say this? Well, one of the favorite things about you is that you had like, uh, how do you say it's like some, auto-immune some physical issues. Yeah. Right. And you, you were able to like go out and learn all this stuff and like literally heal your body and your mind. Yeah,Sheryne Wilson: 00:02:01 Yeah, yeah,Mischa Z: 00:02:04 Yeah. That's yeah. Right. Like that's amazing. That's yeah. And then you do NLP, which is Neuro Linguistic Programming. Um, so you, you, you help people with that tool with, uh, hypnotherapy neuro linguistic programming, NLP, maybe speak to that for a minute. Like, what's the, gimme the, like, this is why you want NLP real quick.Sheryne Wilson: 00:02:33 Um, okay. You want NLP because a lot of our blocks and most of us know this, our blocks are on an obnoxious or a subconscious level. And so, so many times I know something's blocked blocking me. I don't know what it is. I'm stuck. I don't know what it is. And NLP uses language to bypass the conscious mind, which is always trying to the logical mind, always trying to figure out what the problem is. And it goes directly to the unconscious, which is where everything runs. That is, that is the board of, of how we do life. Right? And so NLP is using language, in my opinion, to bypass the unconscious, the conscious mind to get to the unconscious so that we can actually start dealing with the problem, um, so that we can start taking yourself out of the problem. Um, I love it because one of my sayings is focusing on the problem as part of the problem.Sheryne Wilson: 00:03:25 And this basically takes you outside. The problem gives you a different perspective. It gives you a different viewpoint so that you can start actually creating solutions in your life. And so, I mean, that's the one, there's a, that's my definition. There's a million definitions. I mean, by standard, um, it is, NLP is a standard of excellence and it is really about how to use the mind to get to a place of excellence, um, and, and how you're able to associate and dissociate into situations so that you can figure out what you're doing. Uh, another way of saying NLP too, is NLP is about internal representation. What, you know, the word happy means to me could mean totally different. Something totally different to you. So it's about understanding how you view the world and why you view the world that way and how you can change you. Sorry, how you can view the world in a different way and how you Mischa you something different and how we can work together to understand behavior and understand how you work in. I work I'm, I can rabbit hole down this path for a long time, so I'll just stop there. But, um, yeah, it's dealing with the unconscious and the subconscious mind using language.Mischa Z: 00:04:37 Cool. I, um, I love it. Thank you for that. And we're going to come right back to that, but, um,Mischa Z: 00:04:47 I was thinking of words to say, when I was going to introduce you before, right. As we're coming onto this, and of course I didn't write them down. And so now I'm trying to remember what they were. Right. But they were like, uh, like, um, like open, uh, I don't know. I don't know if raw the right word, but vulnerable, perhaps like there's no. Um, one thing I love about you is that there's that, that wall that can be there between people, at least between you and I is like, just melts away really quick. Right. So we get to be vulnerable and authentic and all those cool are all those words that we hear thrown about. Right. Um, I'd also say I pay for this coaching group that I'm in and it's kind of pricey. And I have this coach who's amazing. And, um, his name's Vince, Hey, Vince, if you're listening, love you. I know you love Vince. I would. I know that you have an opportunity and Vince has been incredibly powerful in my life. And then Vince, oftentimes we'll get some coaching or maybe I shouldn't say this on the air, but, um, I know that he, you and him have a relationship and you've been powerful in his life. So I'm just trying to let the audience know that you have a powerful, useful message by a couple of however, I'm using a couple of degrees of separation to help help with that. Yeah.Sheryne Wilson: 00:06:15 Yes. I work with all walks of life and Vince has been one of those people that I've had the pleasure of working with and he's helped me and I've been able to help him. So, yeah.Mischa Z: 00:06:26 Yeah. So go ahead. No, no, that's it. Yeah. So that's our proof of, that's our, that's our social proof. Like you're legit. You, you bring real solutions to the world, I guess is what I'm trying to say. Um, I want to go back to, so you said NLP, and then you said language it's about language, but then you, I don't want to say hedged a little bit, but you're like, well, maybe most people talk about NLP. They don't talk about language or they don't talk about it in language the same way you do. Or maybe tell me what you, what, what what's, what's going on there?Sheryne Wilson: 00:07:03 Well, in NLP, everybody has an internal representation of the world and we filter information as it comes in and everybody deletes and distorts what comes into their mind, you know, because we can only take in so much information, we take in 123 bits, um, versus we're receiving 40 billion bits per, per minute at, uh, like just flat per second, I think at a time. And so our unconscious mind and our conscious brain, can't actually, I should say our conscious mind, can't take it all in. So we got to like sift through it. Right. And that's why when you know, I go to the park, I may see, I may notice all the trees and you go to the park and you notice the, the shiny slide. And, you know, I say, you know, it was the highlight of the park for you. And you're like the shiny slide.Sheryne Wilson: 00:07:51 And for me, it was the trees. And that goes, that goes into our unconscious mind of what we value is what we filter through. Right. And so, you know, I, I value, like I may walk into a show home and be like, oh, I love how bright it is. And you may be like, oh, I don't like how cold it is. And so that's an internal representation right there of what you value, you know, because you're perceiving it as different. I don't even notice that it's cold in there. I noticed that the coloring that makes it cold or whatever that is, but you notice it because you value a different thing. And so it's really interesting how language can do that. And I think it's so important for people to take the time to break down what words mean to them, what symbols mean to them?Sheryne Wilson: 00:08:37 I like the word happy. What does that mean to you versus what does it mean to me, connection? What does that mean to you? What does that mean to me? And when you start to understand that, then you have a bit of a better perspective of what's happening, right? If you can, he, who has the most knowledge or has the most terrain has the most power. Right. So if I can see more and understand more, I have more choice. I have more power versus if I'm, you know, only have one perspective and very narrow-minded, well, that could limit me in my power. So that's, that's what I mean by language is, is I like NLP because it breaks down barriers using language. And so often if I'm working with a client and you know, they're telling me something, I asked them what it means to them. What does that word actually mean to you? Does that word mean to you? Yeah. And it's, it's amazing what you will learn about somebody when they start to, um, describe what something means to them. You're like, oh, I see how that's valuable. Okay. See what I see. That's important to you. Oh, that's interesting. So that's cool. Sorry. I tangent. Did I lose you? Cause you glazed over.Mischa Z: 00:09:55 No, no. I'm taking it in and I'm, I'm, I'm liking it. I'm I'm In a good waySheryne Wilson: 00:10:03 I'm a Hypnotherapist. I do put people in tance.Mischa Z: 00:10:06 Um, so in her mind, performance, inner I N N E R mind performance.com. So anybody listening, those of you who are listening, um, go, while we're talking, you can go to www.innermindperformance.com and, and follow along there. Um, but, uh, Sheryne. So hypnotherapy, tell me about hypnotherapy as you described NLP. To me, describe hypnotherapy to me.Sheryne Wilson: 00:10:40 I think NLP is a type of hypnotherapy. It is, um, I mean, we are in some kind of hypnosis 98%. I would say I've had even some colleagues say a hundred percent of the time we are in some form of hypnosis. And hypnosis is just, you know, a focus state of trance, um, it's a focus state when you're directed at something. So within three minutes, sorry, within three seconds of picking up your phone, you're in trance. You're, it's just, you're glued in you're there. When you, when within seven seconds of the television turning on, you're in a trance. Within five seconds, five to 10 seconds getting in your car and you're in a trance. It's automatic. It's, it's a very focused state. And a lot of the times, um, our unconscious mind, once you get to an auto, uh, an automatic response, our unconscious mind takes over how many times have you driven home? And you're like, I don't consciously remember going home. Like, did I turn, you know, did I turn past the store or not?Mischa Z: 00:11:47 What was it? Was there? Yeah. What was the weather like?Sheryne Wilson: 00:11:53 Your unconscious mind, like I've, and you've heard me say this before. It's like a GPS. And so you punch it in what you want to do and your unconscious mind directs your mind and your body and the rest of you to go do it. So hypnosis is really, um, we're dialing in on an, a, on a, on a very focused state for a purposeful reason. And so hypnotherapy is, you know, um, if we want to do a psychological change work, because you're stuck in an area in your life. Or you've experienced trauma, you can't let that go. And often, you know, we have open loops. So to say, just like you have open tabs on your computer, we have open loops. And if you know this, if you have a ton of tabs open on your computer, how well does it run?Mischa Z: 00:12:36 It just gets bogged down. And yeah, it's just, a nightmare. Yeah.Sheryne Wilson: 00:12:40 Hypnotherapy and hypnosis is a way to go in and to close, gently close. Some of those open loops of, you know, oh, "I was never good enough when I was a child." "I'm never good enough when I was child" and that plays over and over and over again. And oh, like, you know, "I wonder why my ex left me." "Why did my ex leave me?" "I don't know, was it because I'm not good enough?" And that's a lot of energy even to, um, you know, how many times have you laid in bed at night? "Ah, did I, did I pack my kid's lunch?" "Do I need to get up early and pack my kid's lunch?" "Did I pack it, did I put ahh, where did I put the?" "where did I put my keys?" "Where's my passport?" "Oh Shit where's this?" Like, and those are open loops.Sheryne Wilson: 00:13:15 Right. And so hypnotherapy is a way to go in and close those loops. Okay. Um, yeah. And so it's, it's deep, psychological change work is what we call it. And often it has to do with regression in going back into the past and closing those loops because a lot of the instances that are open still happened between the ages of zero and 12. And so that is when we are most, um, what's the word, uh, malleable. Most, uh, susceptible to change. Where are the most susceptible to influence it's, it's the ages where, um, we're in theta states. So we're, we're a sponge. People say, kids are like sponges and they are, that is their unconscious mind is in a place of just download it, being downloaded information. And so sometimes that information is not very good. Right. And so we have to go back and reprogram the unconscious mind so that you can make a different behavior. So you can make think a different thought, choose a different behavior and get a different result.Mischa Z: 00:14:16 That's a great way to say it there.Sheryne Wilson: 00:14:18 I think I stole that from Vince, Like, honestly, like, I don't know how many times I've seen him write this on a whiteboard when he was, when he did some coaching for me. And I was like, yes, that's right, right. Vince is really good at listening. And we're just going to talk about Vince for a second listening and then like spitting out an answer, you know, like being like, oh, you mean like this? And I'm like, yes, like fill in gaps is great.Mischa Z: 00:14:46 And his knowledge is so deep. It's unbelievable. The more I get to have interactions with him more I'm like, God dang. Like, wow. Yeah. Yeah. Cool. Um, so how did you stumble across, was it NLP first or hypnotherapy first or both at the same time?Sheryne Wilson: 00:15:07 That's so interesting that you said that, sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt you. Got your question. Okay. Yeah. Um, how did I stumble across? Well, like I'd mentioned before, so, um, my father, here's the long story. Cause we like deep don't we, we like to go a little spiritual and woo woo. The long story is, is that I actually wanted to be a doctor. And then my father ended up getting sick. Um, he had cancer and he passed away. And after that I realized I didn't want to be a doctor. And so after being in health and wellness for over 10 years, at that time, I decided to go in a completely different direction. I went into business and marketing and uh, got it.Mischa Z: 00:15:50 I asked you a question. How deep are you into the doctor path? Are you like getting you're in university? You're getting your bachelor's you're gettingSheryne Wilson: 00:15:59 Yeah. Yeah. I was on the dot, like I was in, on advanced, um, uh, like nursing program so that I could go into like, so it basically pre-med, it's going to medicine and I was applying for the faculty of medicine, which is like a preliminary program for medicine. So I had a long ways to go don't get me wrong. But yeah, it was, I wasMischa Z: 00:16:21 On the path. Yeah. I was on the path.Sheryne Wilson: 00:16:25 I was like, I'm going to do it. Yeah.Mischa Z: 00:16:28 And so dad gets they'll go ahead. I didn't. So dad, are you and dad? ASheryne Wilson: 00:16:35 Yeah, my dad was my best friend. Yeah. Okay.Mischa Z: 00:16:38 So this is a heavy yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Bitch Slap moment kind of obviously.Sheryne Wilson: 00:16:43 Okay. Yeah. If we want to get real, for sure. My dad had health issues and his entirely, he was a type one diabetic. And so I learned at a very young age, like by the age of, I think, five I've learned, I learned when my dad was in, had low blood sugar and I learned how to give him an injection. I learned like my mom was really good at teaching me and my brother when something was wrong with dad, because I mean, and this is like 20 years ago, 20 plus years ago when they didn't have, um, the insulin packs that they have now. Right? Like they didn't have monitoring on your body where your little thing would be if you went low or whatever. Yeah. The technology, right. It was like, we had to smell his breath. We had to watch his behavior. We had to see, you know, if he is broached, blood, sugar was dropping.Sheryne Wilson: 00:17:29 And, and so anyway, he needs to say he had a lot of health issues. So I always knew in the back of my mind, my mom always prepared this at like dad isn't the strongest physically. And so we need to be appreciative of that. And so I knew, and you know, as an adult, you know, your parents aren't gonna live forever. Um, but I had no idea it would happen that soon. And I didn't think it'd be cancer that blindsided me. I thought it would be like, you know, I had done so much research in pre-med, uh, around diabetes and type one diabetes. And I thought it would be organ failure. I thought it would be, you know, kidney failure, heart disease. That's kind of the things that follow with diabetes. And then it was like, he got this rare cancer, like only seen in 17% of the population, blonde hair, blue eyed, Scandinavians, like in his eye, he got cancer in his eye.Sheryne Wilson: 00:18:20 And it's like, what? Like a rare melanoma in his eye. And it's like, that kinda like shocked all of us. And the doctors didn't really know much about it. And they kind of were like, well, we're just gonna treat it normally. And it's not a big deal. And then later we found out this is a very aggressive cancer and that it can spread almost instantly. And melanoma spreads very fast. Um, and it did it spread to his liver and his lungs and his spine right away. And so within a very short amount of time, he got very sick and um, I put everything on hold and I took care of him and he was my best friend. And it was a no brainer for me. It was like, like I remember my brother would be like, what are you going to do? And I'm like, give me more.Sheryne Wilson: 00:19:09 Am I going to do, I'm dropping out, like, I'm stopping everything. I'm taking that. And he's like, oh, okay. Like, I just was like, this is my best friend. What, what, you know? And, um, I had no idea what it would look like. And that is the scariest thing for anyone who's lost a parent or loved one with cancer. You don't know what it looks like. You don't know how long you have. You don't know how fast it goes. You don't know what it looks like. Some people rarely do they die peacefully in your sleep. That's what I've learned. Yeah. It can be quite ugly. Yeah. It's really gross. Um, so yeah, and I took care of him and it was such a beautiful experience because I learned the value of life and, and I've done a lot of grief talks. If anybody wants, I have spoken for a number of, uh, workshops and, uh, things around grief because it was such a beautiful experience for me. And I've been in contact there's death, doulas. Now death doulas is a thing I would have paid money back then to have a death doula. Like, cause you just don't know to have someone come in and be like, Hey, this is what you need to expect. This is the process. Like, it's like, it's just like having a baby. Right. You have noMischa Z: 00:20:21 End of life doula. Yeah. I interviewed, you can go back to the interviews. It's like interview 17 or something. Mel, Cavindish (Actually Mel McClave interview #12 https://bitch-slap-the-accelerated-path-to-peace.simplecast.com/episodes/interview-12-mel-mcclave-wants-to-talk-death. ) or name a great interview. She's a death doula, but it was awesome. I mean, it was so good. Yeah. SoSheryne Wilson: 00:20:37 Thankfully there was a grief counselor that was really involved and kind of, kind of knew like the death stuff. And, and so it was great, beautiful because it taught me the value of life. Like you don't really understand life until you've just experienced death. And he died in my dad. My dad died in my arms and it was so beautiful and horrible at the same time because this, this is like, he was my best friend. I'm the only man I think I ever truly trusted in life. And he, he was just such a beautiful soul. And um, thankfully I have a lot of his, his legacy and characteristics in me, but it, it, it taught me so much in that moment. Like you really only have one life. Like, and my dad said to me, cause I'm like, dad, do I like who I marry?Sheryne Wilson: 00:21:26 And you know, I'm having this. And we, he, we talked everyday about it. My dad was very open about the dying and we talked about everything and, and you name it, everything we talked about. And I just remember, sorry, I'm kind of rambling. But I remember him saying like sharing. It doesn't matter if you want to be a truck driver, be a truck driver or you want to be a garbage truck driver. Be it be the best garbage truck driver ever. Like nobody cares. Just own it. And just like, if that's your purpose and passion, then do that. Because I was like, dad, I don't know. Do I keep being a doctor? And he was like, I don't care. And as long as you are fulfilling your purpose, he didn't say it like happy. My dad was never like happy. Like my dad was never one of those people's like, do what makes you happy?Sheryne Wilson: 00:22:12 My dad was very like, he was an accountant. So it was very logical. You what's purposeful. Right. And he's going to balance the books. God it. Right. Very much. And so he was, had a practical side of him, but he's like, yeah, like live out your purpose and be, be passionate. And I'm like, okay, because he didn't have regrets, but he had a list of things he hadn't accomplished yet. And that was like a big moment. And he said to me on his death bed, he said to me, I don't have regrets, but I do wish I had gone to more of your games. I do wish we had taken more vacations. I wish I'd taken the darn sick days. You know, I, at the end of the day, cause guess what? His boss, uh, 40 years, wasn't there. The day that the day my dad died.Sheryne Wilson: 00:22:58 I mean, yeah, they sent him a card, but like, you know, all the things he had given himself to in the end, it was really only 20 family members around them. You know, my dad was in charge of many organizations. He was, did non-profit. He did all these things. He'd given 40 years to a company. And yet there's only 20 people around him at the, at the end. And that, that was a wake up call to me. And that's when it was like the slap, it started began. I began, the grief didn't happen that when he died, it was moving on with life afterwards and going, oh my God, like the person that was my best friend is no longer here. Let alone my father. And so I, I did have PTSD. I did have depression. I had horrible anxiety, all my abandonment issues. Every, every emotion I'd ever felt in my life came flooding in. I learned to mop my floors a lot. Um, like it was very like,Mischa Z: 00:23:59 What else am I going to do? Is that what you mean? When you say mop the floors? It's like, this is what I know to do. That's what I can do. Yeah. I'd love that. Yeah.Sheryne Wilson: 00:24:09 And I went back to landscaping. I had to get back to some roots. And so like in my younger years I had landscaped and I called up this guy that I used to landscape and I'm like, I just, I just need to plant some flowers every day for the next few months. And I did until I figured out what I wanted to do and super powerful. Anyways, long story short, this is a long story long.Mischa Z: 00:24:32 Good.Sheryne Wilson: 00:24:33 I ended up, you know, because I, all those emotions, I ended up getting sick myself because I still hadn't let go. I blamed myself on some level. I blamed myself that I didn't save him. That if only I had known more, if only I had been a doctor, if only all these things. And so I had to really let go and all that emotional turmoil plus the stress. Um, I had moved many times, like I put my body through hell and within the first three to five years of my dad passing. And if you do the research, a lot of auto-immune diseases come within the first three to five years of trauma. Yeah. Specifically the death of a loved one. Wow. Yeah. They say within two years of losing a loved one, you are so susceptible to cancer and auto-immune your chances are like crazy.Sheryne Wilson: 00:25:29 Wow. Because it's, your body is in such a state of stress. Yeah. And emotional and physical. So lo and behold, all these autoimmunes came up. And uh, yeah. I started to heal myself naturally. Uh, you know, I did juicing, I did Ravi and I mean, you can go to my website. I list all the things that I did. I did over 30 different modalities. And in the process, in the journey, I did something called bioenergetics, natural bioenergetics, which is dealing with the emotional side and the psychology of emotions as well as the physical side in traditional Chinese medicine. Okay. There's NLP in wa woven into it. And so I noticed incredible change when I started seeing this practitioner who became my mentor and I was like, whatever, this is, I'm going to do it. WhoMischa Z: 00:26:19 Was the, who's your, who was it? Who was your mentor? Who is your mentor?Sheryne Wilson: 00:26:22 Um, she was Linda Easthouse and she, um, she has her own practice out of, uh, Mexico now. Okay, cool. And, uh, so she's semi retired but not retired. She's one of those people I think will never retire. Yes, yes. Uh, so she, she was my teacher and my mentor and taught me some incredible things and work with me every week for probably I think about a year. Okay. I read and saw her every week to deal with the physical, emotional trauma while doing all the physical modalities that I listed on my website. And that's how I was able to heal myself. But in that process, I came across an LP and, and, you know, I, the funny thing is if you know anything about marketing and business, NLP is very heavily woven into marketing and, and business. Yes.Mischa Z: 00:27:08 Like the ad people are like opening loops on us. Right. They're like,Sheryne Wilson: 00:27:13 Yes, absolutely. Right. The, just the way they were things from come by us, us too, wouldn't your life be so much better if you bought this, you know? And it's like, I don't know what it is. Let me show you how, like, there's just, so NLP is just so it's like sleight of mouth, which is what Tony Robbins actually does is he uses a technique called sleight of mouth, which is just very much, um, yeah. Getting people to think and draw them in. And then you make that quick change. Um, can you raise a very powerful technique? And so I actually became certified in bioenergetics first and did that for two years, health coaching, and then really wanted to go deeper. I wanted to get more into trauma counseling and trauma coaching, and I really wanted to blow people's minds. So I got into NLP hypnotherapy, timeline therapy, also incorporated matrix energetics, um, theta healing, EFT. And you just go to like, once you're hooked, you're you just spiral down into all the modalities. And originally I said, I wanna, I want to pick the top 10 modalities that changed my life and I want to learn them, master them. And then I want to help other people change their life with them. So that's what I did. So, um, yeah, it's been fun.Mischa Z: 00:28:33 That is beautiful. Thank you for that. Um, so... Tell me if this is a naive or I don't know if nieve way to say it, but if I hear, I think all of the stuff you just said, it's like, it's all to change the pattern is that kind of change that Mo that, that pattern, right? Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Um, like as far as the NLP is concerned, what are the, like the three someone listening's like, well, NLP sounds cool or low, but actually before we go there, Tony Robbins, the slight of mouth technique is he he's using that technique. You don't need to tell me what it is necessarily yet, but he uses that technique. So that draws the person in and opens them up. And so then he can, he can affect change or,Sheryne Wilson: 00:29:28 And then he's quantum linguistics. So it's very, like, he's uses a lot of commands. Right. And so once you draw somebody in and you have influence, then you can command. And so that is like Tony Robbins is not the master of NLP, just so everybody knows, like you didn't even finish his NLP courses. Right. You just took two, two techniques out of NLP and just nice them down and mastered them. And he just uses them and it works on people. That's cool.Mischa Z: 00:29:59 Yeah.Sheryne Wilson: 00:30:00 And then quantum linguistics is it's very much once you have drawn them in, you know, and it's slight of mouth very much, like can be very sarcastic too. Um, well, "wouldn't you like to know?", You know, um, yeah, well that's because like, it's very sarcastic, it's very jokey and it's like, well, "if you wanted that you would go get it." And it's like, yeah, "I guess I would". And then he, he takes it a step further and he uses some, the linguistic, uh, quantum linguistics to kind of add in some embedded commands. Um, which is another technique that is really powerful. And then like, "so go do that". Right. You know, that's kind of, that's kind of what NLP and people don't even realize that it's happening unless you were just sit down and unless someone like myself, um, can pull it out and I'm like, oh, okay. I see what you're doing there.Mischa Z: 00:30:59 So who did he learn from, or who was his teacher? Who would, as far as you're aware? Huh?Sheryne Wilson: 00:31:05 I think learn from Tad James. Okay. Or could have been Richard Bandler. Those are kind of the top two, um, gurus out there. I'm sure there's more, please. Don't be offended if you're listening to this. And you're like, I know they're like, no, you got it wrong. Yeah. I may have.Mischa Z: 00:31:23 Yeah. Right. Yeah. No, we're just having fun. We're just bantering. We're just talking aboutSheryne Wilson: 00:31:29 Tad James.Mischa Z: 00:31:30 Well, I'll tell you what I think is so interesting about, and this is not no reflection of Tony Robbins. I think of the, but when I hear sleight of mouth, right. Um, unlike that almost bring, makes me as a slight negative connotation to me and not, not Tony, but that like the technique I'm like, oh, why does that, why does that, it's an interesting question. Why does that chat me just a little bit? Like using slight of mouth on me? You know what I mean? Like, you know what I'm saying? Does that make sense or not like, it's an interesting, go ahead.Sheryne Wilson: 00:32:08 NLP can have a bad rap because it can be very manipulative in marketing. There's a fine line. And I think it's important that you have ethics and morals around it. And when I did my NLP, we went over ethics and morals, um, and how to use it. And when you use it, because it is, it does put people in a trance, it is formulated, there is so much, it's intertwined with hypnotherapy and hypnosis and it does put people in a trance and you need to be careful how you, how you do things because you can manipulate people. Um, anybody you can use language to manipulate anyone. Yeah.Mischa Z: 00:32:41 Yeah. If people are trying to do it all the time, marketers, right. They're trying to influence our actions or get us to buy products or switch companies or go to Verizon versus AT&T, right. Like,Sheryne Wilson: 00:32:55 Yeah. Like "wouldn't you want to protect your family?" W w like, "don't, you want to protect your family,?" "Come to AT&T" we'll put like what, oh, okay. It can be very, you know, um, accusing accusatory. It can be very, uh, manipulating. Um, yeah. But, but it works too. So there's, there's a right way and a wrong way, I would say of using it. Um, but it's out there. If you actually study the news, it's, it's, it's interwoven in everything. Every president has their own neuro-linguistic program or trainer to teach them how to talk. That's amazing.Mischa Z: 00:33:34 Yeah.Sheryne Wilson: 00:33:34 Yeah. That's how powerful. This is the top CEOs in the world, all know NLP. Um, most companies have their own NLP trainers, Vince, new NLP, like, yeah. All of my guys have like studied NLP, like, because it's such a powerful use of language. You can manipulate people to get, do what you want them to do.Mischa Z: 00:33:56 Wow. Um,Sheryne Wilson: 00:33:58 So I just use it to get people to do what they want to do on themselves. Right. Right.Mischa Z: 00:34:02 Use it as a tool out of the yeah.Sheryne Wilson: 00:34:04 To get them out of your head.Mischa Z: 00:34:06 Yeah. So cool. So, and then if we were to just generalize, we'd say like the S the strategy of NLP is to help you used for good using the force for good is to help you or somebody, uh, change their thought pattern to a more productive or less negative, or however you want to say that. Right. So, yeah. Is that, yeah.Sheryne Wilson: 00:34:30 I would say it's tricking your mind into doing what you wanted to do. Oh, I love that.Mischa Z: 00:34:34 Um, so cool. So what are, like, tell me some, tell me some, uh, some tactics within that, like, cool. We've got this cool strategy. We're going to, we're going to trick our mind and to doing what we wanted to do. So like, gimme some, uh, anyone listening, like give him, throw, throw them a bone. Let's, let's get let's when we got,Sheryne Wilson: 00:34:55 Um, yeah. So there's some words that are really powerful that automatically trigger people to take action, and those words are, NEED, WANT, HAVE, MUST, AND WILL, is also in there. And so, um, if I was talking to you and it's like, um, or if I need to do something, I will be like, I need to go do this. And that can trigger something in your unconscious mind to take action. Um, and everybody's different, but those are kind of the top five, the NEED, WANT, HAVE, MUST, and WILL. And so if you, if you're like, I will go do this, I must go do this. I'm going to go do this. Like a lot of things, people think I am is really powerful. It's not as powerful as I must. And, uh, uh, I will, and I have to, and I want to, and I need to. And so that's a trick that you can do, um, is you can literally say that, like, I must go do the dishes. I need to go do the dishes. I want to go do the dishes. I will go do the dishes. Um, and you can say that, and that will supercharge your unconscious mind because it's an embedded command that we've learned from such a young age to go do something. Right.Mischa Z: 00:36:06 I love that. That's a good one. Yeah. Thank you for that. So that's a great tip. So again, people can follow along at www.innermindperformance.com or www.toolsforagoodlifesummit.com is where they can listen to you. I interview you. I do two interviews. We do the general session, and then we do the VIP session. I can't remember which one it was in, but you were like, and use the, what was that example you gave? It was so great. I hope, I hope it comes to me quick. I was like, um,Sheryne Wilson: 00:36:38 I hope it comes through, cause I can't rememberMischa Z: 00:36:40 It. Well, you were like, you were like, you were like, put the question on your, your, your like, form the question. You're like form the question, put it on your, on a note or a sticky on your mirror or something. And then the subconscious mind will work to answer the question. Right. And so you're like somebody hates doing this dishes and you're like, I it's something about all of a sudden now they're doing the dishes. Sorry audience.Sheryne Wilson: 00:37:12 No, it's very much like, um, you know, uh, "what would my life look like if I enjoy doing the dishes" or, um, "how easy would it be for me to do the dishes every day?" Um, and, and not answering that question, just leaving it up there and watching your unconscious mind figure out the answer. Um, cause a lot of people think that it's a lot of work. The unconscious mind is so much, it's 30,000 times more powerful than the conscious mind. And so if you can get it embedded in your unconscious mind, it will take over and you'll take action. And so the whole, like I love, I get a lot of my clients to get this. "If, if this was no longer a problem in my life, how much time and energy would I have". And then the unconscious mind goes, "well, we want time and energy, why don't we solve this problem?" Like, you know, and it starts to look for an answer. "What would my life look like if this was no longer a problem in my life?" You know, "if this was no longer a problem in my life, how much time and energy would I have?" "What will I do with all the time and energy that I have that now that this is no longer a problem in my life?"Mischa Z: 00:38:14 And so I love that. And I love that thought. And the subconscious mind starts working to answer that question.Sheryne Wilson: 00:38:21 I walk away and you go, you know, eat a piece of chocolate, go for a walk. And the next thing, you know, as you're figuring out your life's problems and you're like, oh, how did that,Mischa Z: 00:38:31 So would you have somebody write that down? Or like walk me through. So it's like, okay, go ahead.Sheryne Wilson: 00:38:37 Yeah. Yeah. So a lot of my clients, I get them to write it on a sticky and put it on their mirror in the morning. Um, I would say first thing in the morning, especially when you get out of the shower, um, because your neural networks are most, are really lit at that time. So to say, and so yeah, the shower look in the mirror and be like, just say it out loud, three times, you don't need to answer it. Like this is, this is not a cognitive thinking thing. This is just, okay, what would my life look, feel? And sound like, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, or whatever the question is that they need to ask. And they just say it out loud three times, and then they go away and then they say it again before bed. Um, and so that is a technique that you can use and I get them to do it for as long as it takes until I would say anywhere from two weeks to three weeks, seems to be about the time. And then by the end of 30 plus days, it's no longer a problem. It's not even, they're like, yeah, I have so much time energy to figure everything out. Like I got thisMischa Z: 00:39:36 Any, you don't need to say any names, but any real word. What's the top real world example of that, where you've helped one of your clients do that. Can you give like a real life? IfSheryne Wilson: 00:39:49 I would say every single one of my clients? Um, because once I think a lot of, I think as humans and, and the time and energy one is big because we've been taught that everything takes time and energy, right? And time and energy is important. It's a valuable thing. You're very valuable. And so I would say every single one of my clients, no matter what it is, if it's, you know, I want to lose weight. If I changed jobs, make more money, no longer be sick, whatever it is. I put the time in and how much time and energy will I have when I work out every day, how much time and energy will I have when I lose 10 pounds, you know, what will my life look out? Look like, you know, how much time and energy we'll have when this is no longer a problem, my life insert the problem.Sheryne Wilson: 00:40:36 Um, and I would see every single one of my clients after the three weeks are like, oh my gosh, I have so much time and energy because it also changes their focus of where it's going. Because focusing on the problem as part of the problem, focusing on the problems, part of the problem, right? And so they're now thinking about how can I create more time and energy, because this is no longer a problem in my life because my unconscious mind is taking care of it. I'm taking care of it. And so what else can I do? Because the unconscious mind likes direction. It likes to do shit. And so many times once I sit, I sit down with a client, they got chaos, chaos in their life. They got destruction. The world's burning down because they're bored. What happens to a toddler when you leave them alone for too longMischa Z: 00:41:24 By God,Sheryne Wilson: 00:41:26 What happens to toddler? When you leave himMischa Z: 00:41:28 Alone for too long, they're going to wreak havocSheryne Wilson: 00:41:31 Markers on the wall. Legos kicked over, brothers, sisters locked in the cupboard. Like we are wired when we're bored, we will create anything, including Cray chaos. So give yourself something to do, stop, stop creating the problem.Mischa Z: 00:41:53 Oh my God.Sheryne Wilson: 00:41:55 You know, it's so funny when people come to me and they're like, I'm not good at manifesting. You know, I've been divorced three times and you know, I've lost my job. And like, I have health issues. I'm like, you are very good at manifesting. You are very good at manifesting. Your bored and your bored. We need to get that energy because it's the same thing. That's like, you know, they're very good at creating destruction,Mischa Z: 00:42:22 Dig a ditch. Right.Sheryne Wilson: 00:42:26 You, and so it's like, give your unconscious mind something to do. Stop destroying relationships, stop with the destroying habits in your life. Stop eating at night. Like people that people know what we eat because we're bored. We'll do something. Right. It's a default mechanism when we're bored, we will resort to creating anything, including destruction. So true. Right.Mischa Z: 00:42:51 So true. Just like throwing little, little toddlers throwing temper tantrums. Oh my God.Sheryne Wilson: 00:43:03 Unconscious minds board. So it's like post up today. LikeMischa Z: 00:43:08 You had to manifest something. How about another destroyed relation, destroyed relationship.Sheryne Wilson: 00:43:16 That much dysfunction. I'm scared. I'm like, wow. You are powerful.Mischa Z: 00:43:20 I love that idea though. Wow. If you could just shift the, uh, you know, the, I didn't know, shift the intention or I dunno what the right word is there. The focus, the focus. Thank you. The focus. Oh my gosh. That's so, so good. Um, that's a new way to look at the destructive patterns in my life. Oh my God. I am so powerful. Manifesting. I just need a new focus. I love it. Um, I'm going to press, you knowSheryne Wilson: 00:43:52 This because I've done it myself,Mischa Z: 00:43:54 Right?Sheryne Wilson: 00:43:56 Wow. I'm really good at manifesting chaos like crazy. What if I write my best friend? He says to me, he, whenever I I'm like trying to enter mine, he goes, you know, it takes one to know one,Mischa Z: 00:44:17 So true. Um, all right. I'm going to press you a little bit on, I want to, I want a specific example of where you Jedi tricked the person with your little thing there with, with that tool of, um, sorry to do that too. I should've let you know beforehand. It had been a lot easier.Sheryne Wilson: 00:44:39 Go on a specific example of what,Mischa Z: 00:44:42 Of, where you your were doing, where you're like, Hey, ask this question and when you're out of the shower and when you go to bed, like, what is, uh, what is one of your clients? We don't need the name, but like, this was there. This was the real world problem. And we got the real word solution utilizing this technique, perhaps some others as well. But do you understand what I'm saying?Sheryne Wilson: 00:45:04 Okay. Two clients are coming to mind. One. She had been, um, I would say she was in a, in a very tumultuous relationship for many years and then ended it, but never got over it. Like your heart was broken. And she was, I would say chronically depressed. Um, for four years, been in counseling for four years, just like living lifeless for four years. Um, you know, the nine to five or whatever, and she couldn't get over. And I remember I got her to do this specifically. I mean, I had worked with her too, but I think it was, you know, something around. I can't remember what it was. This is a while ago. Um, like a few years ago. I think I got her to ask the question. Um, what would I do? Yeah. How happy that's, what was, "how happy would I be knowing that I've let go of insert person's name?"Sheryne Wilson: 00:46:04 Um, "How happy would I be knowing that I let go of this person and that I now have the power to choose what I get to do with my life." Something along those lines, a very empowered I remember had to do with how happy would I be? And within two weeks she, um, she comes through one of her appointments and she goes, we have a problem. And I said, what? She goes well for the first time in four years, I don't think I've ever been so productive. And I said, what do you mean? She's like, I planted my garden. Hadn't touched my garden for years, planted my garden. She said, I've changed jobs. Um, and she didn't like her job and she's like, I'm back. I got on a dating website and she's like, I actually think I'm happy. Like, I actually think I'm experiencing joy again.Sheryne Wilson: 00:46:52 She actually didn't know we had to go through a whole process. Feels like, cause sometimes people legitimately forget. And so I was like, okay, let's start identifying that. There's happiness in your life. And, and uh, yeah, it was really cool. And uh, she went on and like, honestly after that, she just like, she didn't know what to, she didn't even know what to do with herself. I mean, she was like for four years, I feel like I've just wasted my life. And, and now I'm like planting a garden and, and moving on. And so that, and it literally, it was, I got her to do it. She was probably doing it. I think I had her do it, put it on her steering wheel of her car. So every time she got in her car, she had to say it out loud. Um, she did a lot of driving, so she was, we had multiple times a day asking that question and yeah. Transformational. Yeah. Beautiful.Mischa Z: 00:47:44 And what was the other one that came to mind?Sheryne Wilson: 00:47:46 Um, again, it was around love again and I think it was like, what would I do? Um, I think it was how fulfilled. No, "if I knew how much I love myself, um, how much, how much could someone love me." "If I knew how much I love myself how much could someone love me?" And, uh, again, similar situation been through divorce. Hadn't dated in a year or years. Long time was looking to get back into that, but was struggling to feel worthy to date again and like, oh my God. But then a month she had men bowing to her and she's like going on. And like, she also started to really respect herself and she wasn't dating just these lack of a better term douche bags. She doesn't use bags anymore. And she started dating he's high standard, respectable men. And I was like, whoa, how this is powerful. And she's like, she still just says the man the mantra today. Um, and yeah, this is, she started saying a couple of years ago, but very powerful, very powerful technique.Mischa Z: 00:48:56 So good. Um, and again, everybody listening go to toolsforagoodlifesummit.com and you spoke on, I believe it was day one, mind day. And then there's also the VIP bonus interview where you drop, not only that Bob, but like, you're just, I mean, it was so powerful that the tools and the insights and, uh, um, like actionable content. Right. That's what I love is you were just like, here's a platter of actionable content to,Sheryne Wilson: 00:49:29 Because I don't usually do actionable content.Mischa Z: 00:49:32 Yeah. We, we sussed it out of you.Sheryne Wilson: 00:49:36 Right? You did. I'm so I'm so impressed. Usually I'm just like, I dunno, you just do it. You just do it on my table. It come, you know, book an appointment with me. We'll fix it. Yeah.Mischa Z: 00:49:46 Well you'll, you'll help if someone where someone goes, oh my gosh, urine's amazing. They call you up. You're going to obviously got to dig a little bit. Like, what's the issue? What are we going to work on? What technique do I want to apply? Where right. Like what what's best fit given, uh, given the, uh, the progress they want to make, I guess, but, and of course, innermindperformance.com. They can go there too. So I wrote down a few questions. I always like to, to take a moment and thank you for indulging me with all that. And, um, and I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna try to think of something to put within framework, hold on, put within your framework. So the next time we talk, I can be like, Hey, I used that little trick and here's what it was. Right. So I'm going to, I'm going to think about that offline. I'll I'll come up with something and try it for the next time we talk. But I like to take like, Hey, source universe, infinite intelligence, God, call it whatever the heck you want. Like, you know, w w like, what are some questions? So here, are you ready?Sheryne Wilson: 00:50:56 I'm ready. Are you channeling? Is thatMischa Z: 00:50:58 What you're saying? I'm set. I did earlier, before I got on the call, I wrote down a few things. And so one of them was, I thought, what an opportunity to, cause I'm a guy or a girl or a man woman, however you want to say it. I was like, I wrote down, what's the biggest difference between men and women and how they deal, how they deal, or we could say how they deal with blank. That's what I got to. What's the, my question to you. What's the biggest difference between men and women and how we deal you fill in the blank.Sheryne Wilson: 00:51:34 Oh, wow. I think in how they deal with life and perception. Okay.Mischa Z: 00:51:43 Tell me thenSheryne Wilson: 00:51:47 This would require a full nother podcast. As I love talking about gender roles, and I love talking about programming and the pro or the programming that's come with gender, um, and gender roles. And, and I hope that doesn't offend anybody when I say gender, but I mean like the masculine and the feminine, um, yeah, I think, you know, the earliest programming is women are taught and, and I think that's changing. Um, but for definitely like our generation and up, I would say it's very much been, uh, women are less than and weaker. And, um, that's been a negative thing and, uh, men are, you know, stronger and women are sensitive, right? Women are sensitive and men are, you know, emotionally unavailable. Right. And, and men, I think like I literally have the picture of like a man in a suit with a briefcase walking down the street, logically, going to work and motionless, right.Sheryne Wilson: 00:53:01 Like emotionless, I should say. And a woman at home in the kitchen, um, you know, crying over a sad movie. And, and like, that is what I picture when you were talking that, because that is the program that I received at a young age. And what I have learned is that makes it difficult for men and women to relate because now we've created a barrier and we've created labels. And if you've ever heard me speak on clubhouse or anywhere, I hate labels, hate labels. I hate labels. I hate titles. I hate, I hate it when we do that. And I get why we do it so that we can compartmentalize and relate to what's going on. Cause we need to remember, I talked about distort, delete and filter what's happening. So it's a way that we filter things, but it does put things in a box. And what it, what it does is it says that women are overly sensitive and men are, you know, emotionally unavailable. Right. And I would say that makes it very difficult for men and women to be in connection and communication. If those are, if those are the, the labels and the programs that we've set before us,Sheryne Wilson: 00:54:27 I could go so deep into this,Mischa Z: 00:54:29 We have a few minutes. So don't, don't be scared if there's more you want to say, or you want me to ask a question if you're, if there's something on the tip of your tongue,Sheryne Wilson: 00:54:37 I think I, we can go a little bit. Woo Woo. I think, you know, I think the feminine, here's my honest opinion. I think the feminine energy, whether you identify as a female or not, or you just identify with that type of energy, I think the feminine is more powerful than the masculine. I truly believe that I believe the feminine energy, we can birth a human being, which we create life and we can squat that you ever seen Eliza Schlesinger. Yes. Right. And she's like, you know, and she's like, you know, we just wiggle out this human being and we're like, you know, and then we're like, oh, can you open this can for me? And it's like, she's like really like,Mischa Z: 00:55:20 Oh my God, that's amazing. Right.Sheryne Wilson: 00:55:22 It's just like what, um, I think the feminine energy that we possess, whether you're female or identify as female, whatever doesn't matter, um, is stronger and more powerful than any masculine energy out there. I also think that feminine energy will heal the masculine. I feel that women have, um, inverted and destroyed a lot of the sanctity of feminine energy and that it is actually quite sovereign and strong and powerful. It's not weak. It's not necessarily nurturing, nurturing as it is more sovereign. And I think that if women can tap into that, they would be able to heal men. Not that that's our responsibility, but I think it would heal the masculine. And I think that would allow the masculine to step into more of a feminine role or a feminine energy, which would soften men, which would allow more creativity, which again, I think it's about equality for me.Sheryne Wilson: 00:56:21 It's like the ying, the yang. It's like, we need the masculine, we need the feminine. And every human being needs to have a balance of the both. That is my perspective. And I have seen relationships in my personal life change when I step into more masculine energy. And when I step into feminine energy and when I learned to balance the time, the tact tone and timing of that, I can heal every man in my life. I have witnessed that before my eyes. And it is such a powerful role because I used to be one of those women that emasculated men, I chopped your balls off and I chewed them up and spit it out. And I thought I was being a bad-ass bitch. And then I realized that you crying in the corner did note like does nothing, that these men, men just want to be loved as much as women.Sheryne Wilson: 00:57:11 They want to be heard as much as women, it's just not acceptable. And that's part of the program. It's not socially acceptable for a man to come to work and be like, I'm having an off day I'm sad, you know, whereas women, it's totally acceptable to be like, I'm PMS'ing. I can be a because in PMS'ing scene, you know, like, all right, like a girlfriend messaged me and she's like, ah, I think I'm getting my period. I'm going to take today off. And I'm like, oh yeah. Okay, cool. But like, if a minute, you know, if one of my men, male friends messaged and he was like, my blood ball hurts, I think I'm going to skip work. Right. We'd be like, what? Like pull yourself up by your bootstraps. Like why you being a pussy? You know, like, you know, I'm just like, I used to be that girl that was like, why?Sheryne Wilson: 00:57:54 Like, if I saw a man cry, be like, why are you crying? Like why? And now when I'm in the presence of a man that cries, I'm like, I will hold space. Like I'm holding a child, excuse my language. But it's like, that is the most probably privileged state to, for a woman to ever be when a man shows real raw emotion. And I've learned to really appreciate, harness, captivate hold that, um, because it's just not allowed. And if men had more safe places to do that, the world would be a different place. And if women had more safe place to step into the masculine while being feminine, because we kind of went to the extreme, like w like before it was like women were like, you know, like these weak feeble, like stay at home, love me, you know, like just weak and feeble, whatever.Sheryne Wilson: 00:58:50 And then we swung and we're like, I want to be a bad ass bitch. And like, we want to like step into this masculine role. And it's like, I want the career and I want to pop out babies. And I want to look good and wear skinny jeans while doing it. And then we realized that we all started getting sick and dying and burning out. And we started castrating men because it's just not like, not meant to be like, we went so far to the extreme. Right. And like how many women were breaking down, like we're on my table. And they're like, I just understand what's happening. My hair's falling out, running a corporate nine to five job. I'm, you know, managing millions of dollars. Like they've stepped in this giant corporate masculine role. And they're like the queen at home too. Like, you know, taking charge of their family. And they're like, I don't know why I'm burnt out. And I'm like, well, because you have a uterus and your purpose is to nurture. So like, if you abandoned that you're going to burn out in the other ways. So I think it's about kind of finding that balance of like, yeah, I can be a bad-ass pitch and still cry, you know, and take a break and men can be, you know, corporate gurus or, you know, Kings of their household and have a bad day.Mischa Z: 01:00:05 Yeah. And not have it be a vicious bad day. Right. Like a lot of times that perhaps a bad day for man that justifies our, unloading our emotions in an unhealthy way. Right. Instead of crying or, or in a softer feminine sort of way where like agro or aggressive or vocal or intimidating, or, you know, um, maybe not encouraged how to like deal with that bad day. And, uh, in a, in a, in a, in a healthier manner, shall we say,Sheryne Wilson: 01:00:45 Well, it's because we've been repressed too for so long, you know, so many women are like, men are like Jeckel and Hyde. It's like, CA can you blame them? Like they have to play this role of like macho man or, you know, hero all day. And then it's like, they are just shoving their emotions down. And then you're asking them why they bought the wrong kind of cottage cheese. Right. And they're just like, like, I can't handle that anymore. And they just snap. And you're like, oh my God, what's your problem. And it's like, really? You know,Mischa Z: 01:01:21 Oh my god.Sheryne Wilson: 01:01:21 So hard. You know, women, I'm not saying women have it any easier. This is not about who has it easier or harder. It's something needs to change, you know, like, yeah. And I think, I think honestly, the feminine is leading the change. And if, because we, we are the ones that birth the child and therefore we create the life. And so you create the standards you create, you can create a lot more than you think.Mischa Z: 01:01:50 Yeah. Yeah. Thank you for that. When you say sovereign, what do you meanSheryne Wilson: 01:01:56 I'm addicted this word right now, sovereign sovereign is like, um, gracefully taking your authority is a, it's an, it's a deep knowing of, um, empowerment, um, sovereign, like, you know who you are, you know, where you're going. It's like, I picture this very like, um, noble queen, just taking her throne. The chaos is going on and she just leans forward and just says, you know, something really nurturing. And just knowing that you are handling the situation, you know who you are. You're not out of fear. And it's, there's a lot of grace and power that comes forth like sovereign.Mischa Z: 01:02:35 Does that make sense? It does. Thank you. I love that. Um, that's good. You, when you talk about women can heal men. What pops to my mind is not literally like needing to take action to heal them. It's it's like allowing, allowing for, for healing. You hold space. I guess we could, because I wrote down hold space. I think, I think that as a guy, like to me, I, I, when I quit my job so I can hold space for my boys. And what does that mean? That means I can be there for them. And oftentimes I didn't even need to do anything, but just be in the living room so that when they opened the door and looked out, they're like, yeah, dad's there. This is a safe space, right. Hold space. Without, without having to do anything else other than listen, or be there or hug or right. Does that, yeah. So go ahead. Go, go.Sheryne Wilson: 01:03:40 Yeah. No, I think like females are so used to them being in chaos and so used to them being rescued and being part of the, like being the problem, because we can, we just we're dramatic. We can be more dramatic, more emotional. And if women learn to rescue themselves and find that masculine energy that can rescue themselves and just chill the out, like that gives men the space to talk, because how many times has a man walked in the door or you've gone out to meet them. And you're like, oh my God, let me tell you about my day. And you just like, every woman does this. And it's just like "Blah", and they just vomit. And then they're like, what, why aren't you talking to me? Why aren't you sharing me? Why aren't you opening up? And the guy's like, because you're a disaster dude.Sheryne Wilson: 01:04:29 Like, and, you know, they're taught to like rescue the woman. So they're sitting there in silence, you know, cause that's how they don't know what to do. And it's like, if women just were like, learn to take care of deal with their own, you know, like you can save yourself and then once you deal with your own, that allows space for a man to be like, Hey, you're okay, because you're okay. Can I come cry on your lap? And you're like, yeah, yeah, here, here. And I'm not going to castrate you for it. Like, I'm not going to emasculate you while you do it. I'm going to still look at you tomorrow. Like you're a king, like, and certainly I get super passionate about it. I still,Sheryne Wilson: 01:05:12 And I I've had to learn this. I'm still learning this.Mischa Z: 01:05:18 I love it. Great, great lessons. Great. Great. Yes. Um, um, just quick time check. Um, I think I'm going to say, I think that, uh, the universe just had a great question for me to ask you, so thank you so much for that. Um, thank you so much for that. Um, I, I, was there anything that, um, you were hoping to speak on when you jumped on the podcast here that you didn't get a chance to talk about that?Sheryne Wilson: 01:05:53 No, I mean, I was, I'm such an open and easy going flow, whatever. Um, I didn't know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised and I, as you know, there's multiple topics that I can and share about and, and I just kinda went with your leadings. So I think it's great.Mischa Z: 01:06:13 Well, fantastic. Um, again, everybody for more www.innermindperformance.com, When I'm looking over here, I'm looking at your website, which is super cool and there's some great programs and offerings and things to help to help people.

And then of course, why wouldn't I talk about the www.toolsforagoodlifesummit.com yet again, go there and you can check out, uh, your, uh, Sheryne's awesome, um, interviews. So I think that's it. Uh, thank you so much for jumping on. I'm going to hit stop and then we'll say goodbye offline.Sheryne Wilson: 01:06:56 No, thank you so much. It's been awesome.
It's pretty obvious through a quick browse online that people are feel emotions and make choices much differently online than they would in person. Lorna Helps is with us today talking about all the nuances that come with being in a huge virtual workplace. Because we often have built up animosities that usually wouldn't come up through in-person instruction, conference calls, or meetings, Lorna has invaluable content to help us all through this. Lorna Watkinson worked at Procter and Gamble for nearly 20 years. She was based in Newcastle but worked with teams in London and Geneva so understands the challenges (and benefits) of a hybrid team working. In this new virtual and hybrid world of working this skill has never been more important as zoom fatigue becomes a reality and people's days are filled with back-to-back virtual meetings leaving no time to get the actual work done. If you're in the boat of managing remote teams or maybe you're starting to return to an in-person workplace, visit Lorna here: https://www.vibrant-thinking.com/ for plenty of resources to make your work day more seamless.
Blockchain. It's one of those things the average person knows is going to be transformative in so many ways, but don't quite understand 100%. I have a confession to make: I'm one of those people. In a few words, Blockchain is a shared, immutable ledger that facilitates the process of recording transactions and tracking assets (both tangible and intangible) in a network. Virtually anything of value can be tracked and traded on a blockchain network, reducing risk and cutting costs for all involved.To get a sense of some of the unexpected ways blockchain can be used, we wanted to speak to a few innovators doing interesting things with the technology. Let's start with Nadav Zemier [at the 1:31 mark], an award-winning educator, author, blockchain expert and pioneer at the intersection of technology and education. He's the author of Education in the Digital Age: How We Get There where he offers an evaluation of how digital technology and economics are poised to transform education by examining the concept of academic capital. Nadav's a big believer that Non-transferrable NFTs will Upend Public Schools—and after this conversation, there's a good chance you might too.My conversation with Nadav got me thinking about all of the other innovative uses of blockchain technology are out there these days. Some common uses are anti-money laundering tracking system, supply chain and logistics monitoring, and secure sharing of medical data. But what about professional fighting? I spoke to Donn Davis [at the 18:20 mark], Chairman and Co-Founder of Professional Fighters League (PFL)—the #2 MMA league in the world right behind UFC— on how his league leverages technology, including blockchain, to provide a better fan experience.As always, we welcome your feedback.
