I'm your host, Dr Garrett Coggins, but most people call 24 00:01:49.959 --> 00:01:55.599 me Dr Chet. Now I've dedicated my life to helping others understand that if 25 00:01:55.680 --> 00:02:00.120 you have the proper mindset, you can propel yourself up that proverbial stream with 26 00:02:00.239 --> 00:02:05.439 no paddle, needing af you're constantly feeling like you're going against the flow, 27 00:02:05.799 --> 00:02:09.240 but you're never happy with your results. It's really time to put your mindset. 28 00:02:09.800 --> 00:02:13.919 If that's something that you're ready to do, you've come to the right 29 00:02:13.960 --> 00:02:31.599 place. Now let's get to it. Hello John, how are you doing? 30 00:02:32.199 --> 00:02:36.280 I am doing great, really excited to be here and I love the 31 00:02:36.319 --> 00:02:39.520 whole theme of your podcast. It right up my alley. Yeah, well, 32 00:02:40.120 --> 00:02:43.919 I think people are gonna understand that because you you tackle a lot of 33 00:02:43.960 --> 00:02:47.080 things that I really am passionate about and but I think you do it in 34 00:02:47.080 --> 00:02:53.479 a very interesting way and in your story. is just that that bio doesn't 35 00:02:53.479 --> 00:02:58.560 do it justice. And so, Um, I'm really excited for to get 36 00:02:58.599 --> 00:03:00.439 this going. So what I typically do you, as I told you right 37 00:03:00.439 --> 00:03:05.000 before, is I just give you center stage, Um, let you talk 38 00:03:05.039 --> 00:03:07.400 about what it is you do, the why you do it and how you 39 00:03:07.439 --> 00:03:09.520 got there, and we just let the conversation roll from there. So, 40 00:03:09.599 --> 00:03:13.479 if you don't mind, if you just would take the mic and just tell 41 00:03:13.479 --> 00:03:16.719 your story, I certainly will. Thank you so much. Um, when 42 00:03:16.719 --> 00:03:20.360 I was a young man, I wanted to be Errol Flynn. I wanted 43 00:03:20.400 --> 00:03:23.680 to do sword fights and be Robin Hood and swing from trees and I always 44 00:03:23.680 --> 00:03:25.879 had a stick in my hand like it was a sword. And that manifested 45 00:03:27.159 --> 00:03:30.960 into the desire to do sword fights for film and for stage and I ended 46 00:03:31.000 --> 00:03:35.759 up working at a renaissance festival with two of the top fight directors in the 47 00:03:35.759 --> 00:03:38.800 country and they saw a lot of talent in me as an actor and a 48 00:03:38.840 --> 00:03:44.159 combatant and they they they gave me their train for free. So I started 49 00:03:44.159 --> 00:03:46.759 training to be a stuntman, a fight director. I was getting my black 50 00:03:46.800 --> 00:03:51.280 belt in Taie Kwondo. I was very strong and back in those days I 51 00:03:51.319 --> 00:03:54.360 had long fabio hair, as opposed to this tell us abolist thing I got 52 00:03:54.360 --> 00:04:00.319 going on now. And I was probably a little later way in. In 53 00:04:00.439 --> 00:04:03.520 fact I guarantee it was a little later a way. But Um, twenty 54 00:04:03.599 --> 00:04:08.319 two years old, very fit, very healthy, very strong and working out 55 00:04:08.360 --> 00:04:11.520 on a regular basis, and buddy mine called me up and said, Hey, 56 00:04:11.560 --> 00:04:14.360 can you come help me unload my van? So here I was, 57 00:04:14.400 --> 00:04:17.000 stuntman, fight director. He had a van that was filled with eighty pound 58 00:04:17.120 --> 00:04:23.319 boxes of clay and for me that was like one more workout. I was 59 00:04:23.360 --> 00:04:26.959 like great, I'll go get the train some more. So I drove out 60 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:30.000 to his house. He was a professional potter. That's why he had boxes 61 00:04:30.040 --> 00:04:33.279 of clay and I climbed up into that van and I picked up that very 62 00:04:33.319 --> 00:04:38.519 first box and I turned to set it outside of the van and my spine 63 00:04:38.600 --> 00:04:43.839 broke in two and I collapsed. Um, they took me to the hospital. 64 00:04:43.920 --> 00:04:46.680 Doctor informed me that I had a condition. On a spin a bit 65 00:04:46.680 --> 00:04:51.879 for the OCCULTA, to which I promptly said Gazuntite. No idea what that 66 00:04:51.920 --> 00:04:57.680 guy I was talking about. But basically, three of my vertebrae never formed 67 00:04:57.720 --> 00:05:01.560 properly at birth and I never or knew it until this very day. And 68 00:05:01.720 --> 00:05:05.480 with that extra eighty pounds of weight and the twisting action to take it out 69 00:05:05.519 --> 00:05:10.560 of the van, my upper spine disconnected from my lower spine and pinched off 70 00:05:10.639 --> 00:05:14.480 my spinal column. Doctor told me that day, says, we're not sure 71 00:05:14.519 --> 00:05:18.319 you're ever gonna walk again and even if you do, you'll never have a 72 00:05:18.319 --> 00:05:23.040 physical career, so you better start thinking about what you can do for a 73 00:05:23.079 --> 00:05:29.920 living that doesn't involve using your body. Um, devastating, devastating. What 74 00:05:30.079 --> 00:05:34.199 to some very dark, dark places in that next few weeks. There and 75 00:05:34.240 --> 00:05:39.439 then a buddy of mine came in and looking back at it, it kind 76 00:05:39.439 --> 00:05:42.079 of looks like a cruel joke, but it was the best thing he could 77 00:05:42.079 --> 00:05:46.759 have possibly done. Um, he gave me a book by Bruce Lee called 78 00:05:46.800 --> 00:05:51.879 the Dalve G Kundo, and that book is an interesting book because it's about 79 00:05:51.920 --> 00:05:58.720 his philosophy of martial arts more so than teaching you Kadas or techniques. It's 80 00:05:58.759 --> 00:06:01.480 more about the mind set of it and as I started reading through it I 81 00:06:01.519 --> 00:06:05.920 found a couple of things. Number One, the power of the present moment 82 00:06:05.959 --> 00:06:10.920 and how you only have the one moment to create your experience. Number two 83 00:06:11.439 --> 00:06:16.160 was flexible mindset, being able to remain flexible in times of adversity. And 84 00:06:16.199 --> 00:06:19.120 the more I read it, the more I was just really diving into these 85 00:06:19.199 --> 00:06:24.480 these deep concepts. And I found out later that when Bruce wrote that book, 86 00:06:24.759 --> 00:06:27.920 he himself was in traction in the hospital and had just been told he 87 00:06:27.920 --> 00:06:31.319 would never do martial arts again. Um. But I started that day and 88 00:06:31.360 --> 00:06:36.879 I started just not taking the doctor's belief, taking my own belief and that 89 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:41.639 day, using my mind, I started saying, okay, I am going 90 00:06:41.680 --> 00:06:45.199 to be a stuntman and a flight director and I am going to have a 91 00:06:45.279 --> 00:06:49.160 very physical career, and I started flexing my neck muscles and I slowly, 92 00:06:49.160 --> 00:06:54.360 over the next week, slowly worked down my back, piece by piece, 93 00:06:54.360 --> 00:06:59.199 flexing all the muscles of my back and within three weeks I actually was able 94 00:06:59.199 --> 00:07:02.040 to flex my hips, which was below the injury. So the doctors were 95 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:06.639 very excited that I was able to that wasn't gonna be paralyzed. Um, 96 00:07:06.759 --> 00:07:14.920 but I was paralyzed for several weeks and then by thirty five days I was 97 00:07:14.959 --> 00:07:17.240 sitting on the edge of the bed. UH, within the next month and 98 00:07:17.240 --> 00:07:20.800 a half I was walking up and down hallways. At a year I was 99 00:07:20.839 --> 00:07:25.519 back to what I would consider to be a normal physicality, but not back 100 00:07:25.519 --> 00:07:30.199 to my rock hard masculine self, thank you very much. But at a 101 00:07:30.279 --> 00:07:32.360 year and six months I had gone back to the gym, I had worked 102 00:07:32.399 --> 00:07:35.160 out, I had done all the things and I was back doing very physical 103 00:07:35.199 --> 00:07:39.959 things. And I gave myself a gift. I climbed up on top of 104 00:07:40.000 --> 00:07:43.560 a three story tower and I jumped off into a fall pad. And then 105 00:07:43.600 --> 00:07:47.160 I went on to do over four thousand live comedy sword fighting stunt shows all 106 00:07:47.160 --> 00:07:50.279 over the world, including the front lines of a rack and Afghanistan, on 107 00:07:50.319 --> 00:07:55.879 six USO tours. I was a college professor. I worked in movies with 108 00:07:55.920 --> 00:08:00.360 movie stars doing stunts. I uh at the college. I T taked Libert 109 00:08:00.360 --> 00:08:03.480 in college. I thought stage combat very physical career. I was the director 110 00:08:03.519 --> 00:08:07.160 of theme park where I not only trained actors but I also did all the 111 00:08:07.240 --> 00:08:11.480 choreography as well. And then now I'm I go around the country as a 112 00:08:11.519 --> 00:08:16.399 keynote speaker, showing people my what I call my five fs, my five 113 00:08:16.240 --> 00:08:20.160 five protocols, basically what they are. Is there the way to hack the 114 00:08:20.160 --> 00:08:24.839 fight or flight response, to shorten learning curves, increased productivity and reach your 115 00:08:24.879 --> 00:08:33.600 goals faster? Yeah, see, that's like an amazing story and I don't 116 00:08:33.639 --> 00:08:37.159 know, I just told you I'm really good about going back, but there's 117 00:08:37.159 --> 00:08:39.399 so many places I want to go with this, but let's let's go to 118 00:08:39.879 --> 00:08:43.840 that, because I think, I feel like you made a decision and I 119 00:08:43.879 --> 00:08:46.360 think to me, that's the most that's an important piece that a lot of 120 00:08:46.360 --> 00:08:50.960 people don't do. Like you got the book, You read the book, 121 00:08:50.000 --> 00:08:54.039 you became aware, you're like, yeah, okay, cool and and but 122 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:56.600 then you had that you had to make this choice and then with that choice, 123 00:08:58.279 --> 00:09:01.120 there's a difference between a choice and the decision. So you made a 124 00:09:01.200 --> 00:09:03.679 choice, you did the decision and then you started acting upon it, and 125 00:09:03.720 --> 00:09:09.039 I and that when you're in traction. I mean a lot of people find 126 00:09:09.080 --> 00:09:15.399 that daunting, not in tractions. So let's talk about where you were on 127 00:09:15.440 --> 00:09:18.159 that one because, and I say this a lot too, when to hear 128 00:09:18.200 --> 00:09:22.159 people's stories and as you go through the things that you went through, like 129 00:09:22.240 --> 00:09:28.919 it sounds so effortless. It was, and I wanted let's build, let's 130 00:09:28.919 --> 00:09:31.559 bring the realism into this. So you were doing it, you're moving your 131 00:09:31.600 --> 00:09:35.360 neck muscles, but where was your were you just fuil positivity or what was 132 00:09:35.399 --> 00:09:39.399 going on? Oh No, no, when I when I when I had 133 00:09:39.440 --> 00:09:45.759 the accident, I contemplated suicide because my whole life and toil that point had 134 00:09:45.840 --> 00:09:50.240 been built up to being a stuntman and a fight director and doing doing sword 135 00:09:50.320 --> 00:09:54.600 fights for a living. That was my my whole golden life, and when 136 00:09:54.720 --> 00:10:00.240 it was snatched away from me by someone's decision, you know, and I 137 00:10:00.279 --> 00:10:03.200 say it that way, I don't. I don't consider it and I don't 138 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:05.639 a firm believe. Let me let me back up just a little bit. 139 00:10:05.679 --> 00:10:09.159 My my mother, one of the greatest influences of my life, had her 140 00:10:09.159 --> 00:10:11.919 master's degree in Liturgy at the Catholic Church, so on, so forth, 141 00:10:13.000 --> 00:10:16.480 and but the greatest lesson she ever gave me was when I turned eighteen, 142 00:10:16.559 --> 00:10:22.200 she said, John Um, spirituality is a personal journey and you need to 143 00:10:22.200 --> 00:10:24.639 discover what you believe, not one of the other believes. Well, that 144 00:10:24.879 --> 00:10:28.200 took me. She hit me at the perfect time because that took me into 145 00:10:28.240 --> 00:10:33.840 studying everything. I studied Buddhism and and I started finding all finding all these 146 00:10:33.840 --> 00:10:37.559 correlations and all of it. And then I found the same correlations in science 147 00:10:37.879 --> 00:10:43.080 and neuroscience. And you said it yourself. It's that, it's using thought 148 00:10:43.120 --> 00:10:46.240 word. Indeed, those are the basically what you said breaks down the thought 149 00:10:46.279 --> 00:10:50.000 word indeed. Well, thought word indeed only exists in your present moment, 150 00:10:50.559 --> 00:10:54.240 whereas they would say in Christianity, the I am moment. Right, and 151 00:10:54.240 --> 00:10:58.240 then Buddhist says what you think, you become, you create your world, 152 00:10:58.279 --> 00:11:01.279 and Christmas says you're the culmination of and thought. The Bible says as a 153 00:11:01.320 --> 00:11:05.200 man Thinketh, so is he, and Gandhi says you must be the change 154 00:11:05.200 --> 00:11:07.879 you want to see in the world. So they're all saying the same same 155 00:11:07.919 --> 00:11:11.039 thing. Well, well, when you look at it from a from a 156 00:11:11.120 --> 00:11:16.559 neuroscience standpoint, you've got your your conscious and your subconscious mind and you're looking 157 00:11:16.600 --> 00:11:20.440 at this thing where your conscious mind lives in one present moment and that one 158 00:11:20.440 --> 00:11:22.279 present moment is here and now and it's the only moment you can do. 159 00:11:22.360 --> 00:11:28.600 Thought word indeed, the subconscious mind is all that really is is a collection 160 00:11:28.639 --> 00:11:33.559 of present moment memories that create an underlying belief. And so the only way 161 00:11:33.600 --> 00:11:37.480 you can change your own subconscious underlying beliefs is to change your present moment and 162 00:11:37.480 --> 00:11:41.679 make a different choice. When that doctor, when that doctor said you can't, 163 00:11:43.639 --> 00:11:48.759 I could take his belief and then stack that present moment in that subconscious 164 00:11:48.759 --> 00:11:52.240 mind, and now I'm creating more subconscious belief behind what I'm trying to create, 165 00:11:52.799 --> 00:11:58.320 whereas I could instead say no, I am going to be a stuntman 166 00:11:58.360 --> 00:12:01.600 of the fight. Director. Bible is whatever you're asking. God's name is 167 00:12:01.639 --> 00:12:05.440 granted. Moses said God's name, as I am, and so I am 168 00:12:05.679 --> 00:12:07.639 whatever you put after it is what you are putting your thought, word indeed, 169 00:12:07.639 --> 00:12:15.759 behind, which is creative. So I had to stay very determined to 170 00:12:16.200 --> 00:12:18.440 not take somebody else's beliefs on, because I'll tell you something else. When 171 00:12:18.480 --> 00:12:22.200 you're lying in a hospital bed and you're loving family and friends are around you, 172 00:12:24.159 --> 00:12:28.480 they don't want you to have your hopes dashed and they're going to start 173 00:12:28.519 --> 00:12:31.960 downplaying your dreams because they're gonna start saying you can't remember, trying you you 174 00:12:33.120 --> 00:12:35.960 not. Doctor said you can't. You're not gonna be able to. I 175 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:39.519 couldn't take their beliefs either. Now, if you break it out of that 176 00:12:39.600 --> 00:12:43.600 and you put it into another element of science, quantum physics, you know, 177 00:12:43.639 --> 00:12:46.200 everything you see is pure energy and your body is also pure energy as 178 00:12:46.200 --> 00:12:50.399 well. And noetic science is now showing us that when we think, we 179 00:12:50.480 --> 00:12:54.200 actually can measure the thought waves, and the thought waves are creative. They're 180 00:12:54.200 --> 00:12:58.120 starting to be able to measure a creation of thought. And so if that 181 00:12:58.279 --> 00:13:03.480 is the case, that only the only thing that you can do to change 182 00:13:03.519 --> 00:13:07.720 your present moment outcome is to change your present moment thought, words and deeds. 183 00:13:07.720 --> 00:13:13.440 Yeah, and it really is. People make it too hard right. 184 00:13:13.159 --> 00:13:18.679 It's that's the problem. I see. I see it's it's far simpler than 185 00:13:18.720 --> 00:13:22.600 we can comprehend and to the point where it's like, no, it can't 186 00:13:22.639 --> 00:13:26.519 be that easy, let's make it harder. And it really is. Just 187 00:13:26.720 --> 00:13:31.320 Change Change Your freaking mind, pardon my language, just change your mind. 188 00:13:31.720 --> 00:13:35.399 Just change your mind. You know you your mind, your thoughts are the 189 00:13:35.440 --> 00:13:39.759 creative element, and the interesting thing is it's thoughts, words and deeds. 190 00:13:39.639 --> 00:13:43.080 What got me out of the bed was I thought it, I said it 191 00:13:43.639 --> 00:13:46.799 and then I did something about it. If you don't marry all three, 192 00:13:46.879 --> 00:13:50.519 then you're not in creation mode, you're in daydream mode. Yeah, well, 193 00:13:50.879 --> 00:13:58.080 that's the very valid point there, because we talked about well, there's 194 00:13:58.360 --> 00:14:01.840 there's a choice to make, the decision to make, and your decision is 195 00:14:01.879 --> 00:14:05.399 not made. In my mind, it's not made until you do some actions 196 00:14:05.480 --> 00:14:09.679 behind it. That's that's what sets that decision in motion. So is the 197 00:14:09.759 --> 00:14:15.399 deed. and Um, and you're right, we do. We don't comprehend 198 00:14:15.440 --> 00:14:18.519 this idea that if we just make a different choice, that's all it is. 199 00:14:18.639 --> 00:14:22.919 Just. Well, no, yeah, that that. That's really really 200 00:14:22.919 --> 00:14:26.440 all it takes. But I want to do that and I feel like, 201 00:14:26.600 --> 00:14:30.240 because that's the awareness, like we've been told our lives that life isn't easy 202 00:14:30.279 --> 00:14:31.519 and this and that, and it's not, but it's it's really not. 203 00:14:31.639 --> 00:14:35.120 There's always trial, tribulations and things that we're gonna go through. I'm not 204 00:14:35.159 --> 00:14:41.320 saying that you know that the journey there is going to be simple, but 205 00:14:41.519 --> 00:14:45.600 it's just what you choose, that the story you choose to tell yourself. 206 00:14:45.679 --> 00:14:48.840 And I love how you were saying like I could buy into the belief of 207 00:14:48.879 --> 00:14:54.480 the doctor and just go down that road or I can I can write my 208 00:14:54.559 --> 00:14:56.879 own story and I you know, I talked to people a lot with people. 209 00:14:58.600 --> 00:15:01.000 They have anxiety, they have this, they have that. Well, 210 00:15:01.120 --> 00:15:03.320 the reason why you get the anxiety piece, and again, I'm not saying 211 00:15:03.360 --> 00:15:07.519 that anxiety is not real, it's very real. But when you can choose, 212 00:15:09.440 --> 00:15:11.360 you you know that trigger, when you're aware of that trigger, what's 213 00:15:11.399 --> 00:15:16.039 causing to go down that anxiety path, and you can say no, I'm 214 00:15:16.039 --> 00:15:18.720 gonna choose to do something, think something different, go into a different direction, 215 00:15:20.159 --> 00:15:22.720 your anxiety does a steamroll the way it does because you've made this new 216 00:15:22.799 --> 00:15:26.039 choice to go into a different direction. And it's the same with everything, 217 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:33.200 and you're a perfect example with what you did and how you overcame the what 218 00:15:33.279 --> 00:15:35.240 the doctor was telling you to where you're at today. Right. And you 219 00:15:35.279 --> 00:15:39.960 know, the word anxiety is really just one of the masks of the word 220 00:15:41.000 --> 00:15:43.639 fear. It's just fear, right, and the interesting thing about fear, 221 00:15:43.679 --> 00:15:48.200 that's fascinating to me is fear is is not rooted in your present moment, 222 00:15:48.639 --> 00:15:52.559 because fear, when you break it down scientifically, is an emotional reaction to 223 00:15:52.679 --> 00:15:56.320 some future event that may or may not happen with you focus on a negative 224 00:15:56.320 --> 00:16:02.679 outcome. It literally is negatively focused on certainty. And it's interesting because that 225 00:16:02.799 --> 00:16:07.840 fear of response comes with a natural, primal response that that we we can 226 00:16:07.879 --> 00:16:12.159 hack into right away. Um, the interesting thing when you talk to actors 227 00:16:12.159 --> 00:16:17.279 on Broadway or in Hollywood, if they step on set or on in front 228 00:16:17.320 --> 00:16:21.399 of camera or in front of an audience and they forget their lines, they 229 00:16:21.440 --> 00:16:26.000 are literally trained to Exhale, relax all their muscles and all their lines rush 230 00:16:26.080 --> 00:16:30.559 right back into their ad well, the reason this works is because it's just 231 00:16:30.600 --> 00:16:33.159 like if you you know, when you watch National Geographic shows on TV, 232 00:16:33.240 --> 00:16:37.440 you know that every episode has that doomed Gazelle Right, it's out there in 233 00:16:37.440 --> 00:16:41.120 the field eat and grass from right and then all of a sudden that the 234 00:16:41.159 --> 00:16:45.519 lion hits the field, first thing the gazelle does is go the gas for 235 00:16:45.600 --> 00:16:48.080 air. Well, when you get into anxiety, you feel like you can't 236 00:16:48.080 --> 00:16:52.480 breathe, and the mistake that people make is thinking they can't, quote unquote, 237 00:16:52.480 --> 00:16:56.679 can't breathe. It's not that they can't breathe, is that their body 238 00:16:56.120 --> 00:17:00.600 has filled their lungs up to the point where where they can't put more air 239 00:17:00.639 --> 00:17:04.039 in, you know, and the reason your body does this in a primal 240 00:17:04.079 --> 00:17:07.680 reaction is so that you have enough air to run further and faster. That's 241 00:17:07.759 --> 00:17:14.319 why the body does it. When those actors exhale and relax all their muscles, 242 00:17:14.400 --> 00:17:18.400 they shut off the fear response and which opens up the which shuts down 243 00:17:18.640 --> 00:17:23.119 the survival response, which then also then turns on the cognitive thinking brain. 244 00:17:23.519 --> 00:17:27.880 And so just that that action of realizing that you're in anxiety, realizing that 245 00:17:27.960 --> 00:17:34.359 you're in stress, realizing that you're being negative and just relaxing and letting it 246 00:17:34.400 --> 00:17:42.279 go shuts down all the responses that are built from that fear response. You 247 00:17:42.319 --> 00:17:47.240 know, when you look at there's an interesting there's an interesting to tap into 248 00:17:47.359 --> 00:17:52.279 that spiritual background again, Um Buddha in Buddhism. One of the most famous 249 00:17:52.319 --> 00:17:56.079 Buddhist quotes is life is suffering. We talked about life is hard right, 250 00:17:56.519 --> 00:18:00.480 and the interesting thing about it is is that quote was translated from the language 251 00:18:00.480 --> 00:18:04.160 of polly, which is a conceptual language, into English, which is a 252 00:18:04.200 --> 00:18:11.000 literal language, and so it literally can't translate the Word Duca into one translation 253 00:18:11.039 --> 00:18:15.599 in English. So there's three translations in the dictionary under Duca, all right, 254 00:18:15.640 --> 00:18:18.720 and the first translation, and you're gonna love this, first translation, 255 00:18:19.000 --> 00:18:27.119 is pain or suffering, the second translation is habitual response and the third translation 256 00:18:27.440 --> 00:18:36.480 is Um beliefs from experience. So when you put the whole concept together, 257 00:18:36.799 --> 00:18:42.160 the definition of Ducca in polly is like and the Buddhist quote is life is 258 00:18:42.240 --> 00:18:51.200 suffering caused by habitual response because of our subconscious belief. And you have the 259 00:18:51.240 --> 00:18:57.279 ability to break the subconscious belief just by starting to stack present moments differently. 260 00:18:59.039 --> 00:19:02.359 And you know Jesus this would say be born again right or something like that. 261 00:19:02.400 --> 00:19:07.599 But it literally is set down your subconscious beliefs, because your subconscious mind 262 00:19:07.599 --> 00:19:11.519 really has two jobs. One to store those memories, but also your subconscious 263 00:19:11.559 --> 00:19:15.880 mind shows you what you're focused on, which is why negative people always have 264 00:19:15.039 --> 00:19:18.880 something before, always have something negative to talk about, because they're focused on 265 00:19:18.920 --> 00:19:23.759 negative. So there's subconscious mindy showing them negative. And the interesting thing about 266 00:19:23.799 --> 00:19:26.640 that is, for instance, I haven't I'm a jeep guy. I love 267 00:19:26.720 --> 00:19:30.519 jeeps. I have one of my garage right now. I've had six of 268 00:19:30.559 --> 00:19:33.960 them in my lifetime. When I drive down the road, I see every 269 00:19:33.039 --> 00:19:37.400 jeep on the road right everyone because my subconscious mind says, Hey, he 270 00:19:37.480 --> 00:19:41.960 likes jeeps, let's focus on jeep, let's show them jeeps. But if 271 00:19:41.000 --> 00:19:47.680 I focus on positive then I start to see positive things. And the key 272 00:19:47.720 --> 00:19:51.759 really is is to take your present moment and make it as successful and as 273 00:19:51.799 --> 00:19:55.960 positive as you can and just start stacking present moments. Because here's the other 274 00:19:56.000 --> 00:20:00.640 thing. Lying in that bed, I couldn't say today I am a stunt 275 00:20:00.720 --> 00:20:04.680 man, because it's not gonna happen that way right to you know, that 276 00:20:06.119 --> 00:20:08.920 big John Daunting goal does not magically appear in your present moment. The only 277 00:20:08.960 --> 00:20:14.000 thing that that goal, like future, is is a place where you set 278 00:20:14.000 --> 00:20:18.119 goals for your present moment, for your next present moment, and the only 279 00:20:18.119 --> 00:20:22.559 way that giant outcome comes to you and surrounds your present moment experience is billing 280 00:20:22.640 --> 00:20:26.000 to doing the small, successful present moments here that are in alignment with it. 281 00:20:26.480 --> 00:20:27.480 So when I got out of that bed, I started with my neck 282 00:20:29.160 --> 00:20:32.440 and then I did my shoulders and my my upper back and I slowly worked 283 00:20:32.440 --> 00:20:34.799 my way down piece at a time and as those things started stacking together, 284 00:20:36.519 --> 00:20:40.519 next thing you know I was jumping off towers and sword fighting and Zip lining 285 00:20:40.559 --> 00:20:44.240 and rope swinging and you know, I was working with famous movie stars and 286 00:20:44.839 --> 00:20:47.920 doing all the stunt work that I that I told myself I was going to 287 00:20:47.960 --> 00:20:52.799 do. But it was only by stacking small, successful present moments and allowing 288 00:20:52.839 --> 00:20:56.960 them to accumulate that I experienced all that success. Yeah, and I love 289 00:20:57.079 --> 00:21:00.359 I say that. I say here a lot of time too. The the 290 00:21:00.519 --> 00:21:04.319 end, the overarching goal, that sea level type goal, that that thing 291 00:21:04.400 --> 00:21:10.519 we're going for. People look at that as that's the only success. Once 292 00:21:10.559 --> 00:21:12.240 I reached that, I had successes and like you need to stop thinking that 293 00:21:12.279 --> 00:21:17.359 way. You started doing the daily things and I tell my kids all the 294 00:21:17.400 --> 00:21:19.920 time. My I was just talking to my son, Um, I want 295 00:21:19.920 --> 00:21:23.079 to say. It was on Sunday. It was on Sunday, and he 296 00:21:23.160 --> 00:21:26.359 was saying, I think too far in the future. I was like, 297 00:21:26.400 --> 00:21:27.400 what do you mean by that? He says, well, because he really 298 00:21:27.440 --> 00:21:32.119 wants to be in NFL. That's his his goal is I want to be 299 00:21:32.200 --> 00:21:33.920 in NFL. He said. Well, you know all my friends, he's 300 00:21:33.960 --> 00:21:37.599 now in high school. They're starting to think about what college they want to 301 00:21:37.640 --> 00:21:40.680 go to because they want to play football at the college. And say all 302 00:21:40.720 --> 00:21:42.559 I can think about is just the NFL. I was like, well, 303 00:21:42.559 --> 00:21:47.440 that's it's good, but you're right, it's detrimental in the aspect that that's 304 00:21:47.440 --> 00:21:51.319 your complete goal. You have to stack your success daily, reverse engineer that 305 00:21:51.359 --> 00:21:56.960 and say what can I do today to get me one step closer to that 306 00:21:56.200 --> 00:22:00.440 end result? And then once you do that, once you accomplished that activity, 307 00:22:00.480 --> 00:22:04.400 say there's my success, and then tomorrow you wake up he's like, 308 00:22:04.480 --> 00:22:07.880 I score yesterday, right, I have my success yesterday, so today is 309 00:22:07.920 --> 00:22:12.319 going to be just as good because now I'm coming off of that high of 310 00:22:12.359 --> 00:22:17.039 a success. So all these successes is, I think, with Nightingale said 311 00:22:17.079 --> 00:22:19.839 that, you know, success is nothing but this progressive realization of a worthy 312 00:22:19.880 --> 00:22:22.960 ideal or a worthy goal, and that's what we're doing. We're just going 313 00:22:23.079 --> 00:22:27.880 for daily and that's what living in Analomians keep the goal in mind, but 314 00:22:29.000 --> 00:22:33.240 don't don't sacrifice them today's moment, because it's just today's moment. It's gonna 315 00:22:33.240 --> 00:22:36.640 get you there right. Right, and your son, your son is looking 316 00:22:36.680 --> 00:22:38.839 at a very physical career. Right, so I can totally relate to that 317 00:22:38.880 --> 00:22:41.519 because that was my whole thing, was one of the very physical career. 318 00:22:41.839 --> 00:22:45.680 Now I would say this is what I would say to your son. Okay, 319 00:22:47.039 --> 00:22:51.240 these moments are creating the foundation for success in that moment, and so 320 00:22:51.319 --> 00:22:56.359 the only way you can have a successful that moment is by being the better 321 00:22:57.400 --> 00:23:02.599 NFL athlete here. You know, in orders, go into the gym and 322 00:23:02.599 --> 00:23:07.039 start getting your bench up, start squatting more, you get your physicality because 323 00:23:07.359 --> 00:23:11.519 your body brustally. When he when he decided to to become his one of 324 00:23:11.599 --> 00:23:14.400 his goals in life was to be the greatest martial artist that ever lived. 325 00:23:14.960 --> 00:23:18.359 Right. That was one of his biggest goals. And the interesting thing is 326 00:23:18.400 --> 00:23:22.160 the first thing he did was he said, well, my body I need, 327 00:23:22.240 --> 00:23:22.960 I need to have if I'm going to do that, I need to 328 00:23:22.960 --> 00:23:26.880 have the body of the greatest martial artists that ever lived. So he started 329 00:23:26.920 --> 00:23:33.000 studying nutrition and he and he invented the protein shake that we all that everyone 330 00:23:33.119 --> 00:23:34.440 is now. There's all kinds of protein shakes out there now. He was 331 00:23:34.480 --> 00:23:38.279 the guy who originally did it and it's interesting because when you look at the 332 00:23:38.319 --> 00:23:41.880 business model of that, he he was studying nutrition. He thought, well, 333 00:23:41.920 --> 00:23:45.039 I need to reduce my carbo hydrate, I need to increase my protein 334 00:23:45.640 --> 00:23:48.480 so that I can build the muscle Muscos here that I need to be this 335 00:23:48.640 --> 00:23:52.440 martial artist. So he started studying. Said I think powdered milk and egg 336 00:23:52.480 --> 00:23:56.839 white and liver tablets. I'll crush them up and he created this protein shake. 337 00:23:57.039 --> 00:24:00.279 Tasted nasty but he did it every day. But then a guy named 338 00:24:00.319 --> 00:24:04.200 Steve Reeves saw him doing that and said well, I want to do that, 339 00:24:04.240 --> 00:24:07.240 and Steve Reeves went on to play Hercules and all the old nineteen six 340 00:24:07.480 --> 00:24:11.559 movies. You know, one of the most is one of the most famous 341 00:24:11.559 --> 00:24:15.240 bodybuilders of all the toime of our time. And then, Um, these 342 00:24:15.319 --> 00:24:19.359 this Austrian guy came over and he'll what're you doing? Right and Arnold and 343 00:24:19.359 --> 00:24:23.200 all his guy started out. And then a guy named Rio Blair saw that 344 00:24:23.240 --> 00:24:30.240 these bodybuilders were using these things called protein shakes and he created the protein shake 345 00:24:30.359 --> 00:24:33.920 industry and that went off and created this amazing thing. So just even the 346 00:24:34.519 --> 00:24:41.000 concept that Bruce at his starting point went here, I am, I'm gonna 347 00:24:41.039 --> 00:24:45.039 be the greatest martial artists that ever lived. So the first thing I have 348 00:24:45.079 --> 00:24:48.920 to do is study nutrition, which just you know, that's not being the 349 00:24:48.920 --> 00:24:52.200 greatest martial artists that's ever lived. At studying nutrition. Right. Well, 350 00:24:52.319 --> 00:24:56.039 just just the idea that he did that. What what did else? Did 351 00:24:56.039 --> 00:25:00.039 it spawn? Just it's the greatness of Bruce Lee is not necessarily that he 352 00:25:00.079 --> 00:25:03.839 became the greatest martial artists that ever lived, but he spawned so many more 353 00:25:03.880 --> 00:25:08.279 things in his lifetime just because he was staying very present and doing things very 354 00:25:08.279 --> 00:25:11.119 effectively. If you go to any gym in the country right now, you're 355 00:25:11.119 --> 00:25:17.480 gonna find cable machines that Bruce Lee invented because he had parts of his body 356 00:25:17.880 --> 00:25:21.880 that he had to hit for martial arts the bodybuilders weren't hitting. And so 357 00:25:22.039 --> 00:25:26.279 it's really fascinating when you look at by staying very present, setting a big 358 00:25:26.279 --> 00:25:30.200 goal and doing things, there's gonna be ancillary benefit to everybody around you. 359 00:25:30.200 --> 00:25:33.359 And so if your son wants to be in the NFL, I would tell 360 00:25:33.440 --> 00:25:38.480 I would say build the foundations first and watch how everything around you gets better. 361 00:25:38.960 --> 00:25:45.400 Yeah. Well, I think the point that you touched on are are 362 00:25:45.799 --> 00:25:52.319 extremely important. That we can you can say all day long I am a 363 00:25:52.359 --> 00:25:55.920 stunt person, I am, I am, I am, and that's a 364 00:25:56.000 --> 00:25:59.000 very powerful statement. Right. That gets it gets the power. But then 365 00:26:00.160 --> 00:26:03.880 what? Who is that? Who is that person? Who is it that 366 00:26:03.920 --> 00:26:07.119 I have to become, to be a stunt person, to be the greatest 367 00:26:07.160 --> 00:26:11.200 martial artists, to be an NFL star, to be who is that person? 368 00:26:11.400 --> 00:26:15.119 And then you have to start looking at okay, and then who I 369 00:26:15.160 --> 00:26:19.680 am right now, right, what what is missing from that, from that 370 00:26:19.759 --> 00:26:23.920 algebraic expression? Right, I need to get something to be in line with 371 00:26:23.960 --> 00:26:27.119 WHO that person is and and then say, okay, cool, well, 372 00:26:27.319 --> 00:26:30.759 I have these traits, I have these characteristics that these are in line with 373 00:26:30.799 --> 00:26:34.279 that goal that I want. But this isn't. So now we have to 374 00:26:34.319 --> 00:26:41.160 replace and restructure and re engineering to get to that end goal right, right, 375 00:26:41.160 --> 00:26:45.839 and that is precisely why I do not believe in affirmations Um, because 376 00:26:45.839 --> 00:26:51.079 I think the word affirm itself means that I'm suring something up that's not solid. 377 00:26:51.960 --> 00:26:56.240 And I believe declarations. And you know, I could be I could 378 00:26:56.240 --> 00:26:59.880 be a guy who's a hundred and fifty pounds of her weight and I can 379 00:27:00.000 --> 00:27:03.599 say all day I am a thin man, but I still can't see my 380 00:27:03.640 --> 00:27:07.759 shoes right, I still can't see them right. So I can't believe it. 381 00:27:08.640 --> 00:27:11.759 And thought, word, indeed starts with thought, and thought is believe 382 00:27:12.240 --> 00:27:15.319 or faith, faith in your outcome. You know, I talked about five 383 00:27:15.319 --> 00:27:21.200 episode about fearlessly. Focus with faith. We talked about getting fearless, setting 384 00:27:21.200 --> 00:27:25.720 our fears aside, focusing on a positive outcome and believing we're going to achieve 385 00:27:25.799 --> 00:27:29.160 it. Right. Well, if you if you can't see your shoes, 386 00:27:29.279 --> 00:27:33.039 you can't believe that you're a thin person. So you can't affirm that you're 387 00:27:33.039 --> 00:27:36.799 a thin person when you're not, because your belief or allow you to get 388 00:27:36.799 --> 00:27:40.480 fear to see. Focused with faith. The next one's follow through. You 389 00:27:40.519 --> 00:27:45.319 actually have to make start stacking those present moments, start, start putting them 390 00:27:45.319 --> 00:27:48.599 in place so that they can create the experience you're looking for. Right. 391 00:27:48.680 --> 00:27:52.240 So, but you have to have that belief. Now here's the interesting thing 392 00:27:52.359 --> 00:27:59.279 is sometimes you have to bypass your your belief, because belief is simply trust 393 00:27:59.559 --> 00:28:04.000 and trust is developed by results over time. And to get that belief, 394 00:28:04.079 --> 00:28:08.400 that faith, you sometimes have to stack your present moments and start seeing results 395 00:28:08.759 --> 00:28:12.720 to get that that confidence, that believe. So sometimes you can bypass it, 396 00:28:12.759 --> 00:28:15.079 but if you can get right to that belief element. You know, 397 00:28:15.079 --> 00:28:18.559 when I was lying in that bed, I had to I had to believe 398 00:28:18.039 --> 00:28:21.279 I was going to be a stunt man for me to get out of that 399 00:28:21.319 --> 00:28:23.680 bed. I had to come bring to that place. But every day I 400 00:28:23.839 --> 00:28:30.400 flex my neck or my and then when I flex my hips, then I 401 00:28:30.440 --> 00:28:36.039 knew I was doing because I got past the injury. The doctors weren't sure, 402 00:28:36.079 --> 00:28:37.920 but I was like no, I'm gonna and I did right. So 403 00:28:37.960 --> 00:28:41.359 you have fearlessly focus on faith follow through. The next one is the tough 404 00:28:41.400 --> 00:28:45.680 one. It's the one that most people lose their their their momentum on, 405 00:28:47.240 --> 00:28:51.759 and it's it's flexibility. Something's always gonna come up, it's gonna seem contrary 406 00:28:51.759 --> 00:28:56.200 to what you're trying to achieve and in those moments you have to realize that 407 00:28:56.759 --> 00:29:00.920 you're focused on a positive goal and something has just come up. This seems 408 00:29:00.960 --> 00:29:02.960 like it's going to block it. Well, what did I say earlier? 409 00:29:03.200 --> 00:29:04.920 I said your subconscious mind is going to show you what you're focused on. 410 00:29:06.279 --> 00:29:08.359 Well, if you're focused on a positive goal and something comes up it seems 411 00:29:08.400 --> 00:29:12.839 to be a blockage, then the reality of it is you are being shown 412 00:29:12.880 --> 00:29:17.720 something that needs to be cleared out of the way to get to your goal, 413 00:29:17.920 --> 00:29:19.839 not something that's going to stop you. And so you have to stay 414 00:29:19.839 --> 00:29:25.400 in the mindset of of of this, Oh, great, something I'm up 415 00:29:25.400 --> 00:29:26.799 for me to fix, because it's just one thing to be out of my 416 00:29:26.839 --> 00:29:30.119 way. Right. Brucel used to talk about being like water. You flow 417 00:29:30.160 --> 00:29:33.440 down the river, you come to a rock, you flow around it, 418 00:29:33.480 --> 00:29:37.200 you flow over and over time you actually flow through it. It'll the water 419 00:29:37.279 --> 00:29:41.079 will beat that rock over time. And but the reality of it is is 420 00:29:41.400 --> 00:29:45.200 you have to be the one who says, in times of Adversity, in 421 00:29:45.240 --> 00:29:48.880 times of Struggle, oh, it's just something I have to deal with to 422 00:29:48.920 --> 00:29:55.039 get to my goal, because I am getting my goal period. Yeah, 423 00:29:55.160 --> 00:29:57.400 yeah, and it's the tenacity right there that's gonna get you to where you 424 00:29:57.440 --> 00:30:07.839 need to be. Do you have the next big thing, that world changing 425 00:30:07.880 --> 00:30:11.119 which McCall it? Do you have a story to tell?

See, I wrote the book moving upstream without a paddle 433 00:30:52.920 --> 00:30:57.119 as a God to develop the foundation for successful mindset. Learn what I believe 434 00:30:57.200 --> 00:31:02.200 to be four of the most fundamental prince supposed to find success in any endeavor. 435 00:31:02.880 --> 00:31:07.039 If you apply these principles in your own life, you will indeed find 436 00:31:07.480 --> 00:31:11.599 that you can move up stream with no peddle needed. Get it on Amazon 437 00:31:11.839 --> 00:31:19.039 today. Law of attraction, all that stuff. They're like these these you 438 00:31:19.039 --> 00:31:22.640 know, ten dollar words or that everybody is saying. Everyone's like, Oh 439 00:31:22.720 --> 00:31:27.200 yeah, but there's pieces like they don't do the research. Like I firmly 440 00:31:27.240 --> 00:31:32.200 believe in the law of attraction. Right, the universe is gonna take and 441 00:31:32.319 --> 00:31:36.559 step towards you if you take a step towards it like you. There's for 442 00:31:36.640 --> 00:31:41.079 every action, every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction. If I 443 00:31:41.160 --> 00:31:44.279 just sit on the couch saying I'm going to be a stuntman and that's all 444 00:31:44.319 --> 00:31:47.440 I'm doing, well, you're gonna be the best couch stunt man I've ever 445 00:31:47.440 --> 00:31:52.279 seen in my life. That's exactly where you're gonna stay. So it's every 446 00:31:52.319 --> 00:31:56.000 action you have, there is action that has to be involved. And if 447 00:31:56.039 --> 00:32:00.880 you're not taking those steps and and the follow through and then understanding like that's 448 00:32:01.079 --> 00:32:06.079 yes, that's a nasty it doesn't matter what comes your way, I'm getting 449 00:32:06.200 --> 00:32:08.720 that goal. And so what? What's this blockage? What's this hurdle? 450 00:32:08.839 --> 00:32:13.319 I can go up, over, around it, through it, whatever it 451 00:32:13.319 --> 00:32:15.680 looks like. They're just steps along the way, no matter how big. 452 00:32:16.279 --> 00:32:20.680 Sometimes they're hard steps, sometimes they're big steps. You know, I climbed 453 00:32:20.720 --> 00:32:24.519 Mount Sinai and I climbed up what they call the three thousand steps of repentance, 454 00:32:25.200 --> 00:32:30.119 and the steps is a very grand word for what they really were. 455 00:32:31.599 --> 00:32:37.079 It should have been the three thousand pile of rubble of repentance whatever. But 456 00:32:37.359 --> 00:32:39.559 some of some of those steps were real tall and some of those steps are 457 00:32:39.559 --> 00:32:44.720 real small and some of we're easy to step up and something we're hard to 458 00:32:44.720 --> 00:32:47.319 step up. And then the more you climb and the higher you get, 459 00:32:47.440 --> 00:32:51.759 you get to the just before you start at one o'clock in the morning, 460 00:32:52.039 --> 00:32:54.200 because you reach the top at sunrise. And I can guarantee you, as 461 00:32:54.240 --> 00:32:58.319 you're climbing up those rocks they get harder and harder. Even the small ones 462 00:32:58.359 --> 00:33:00.920 get hard and then about an hour are so before sunrise, it gets really 463 00:33:01.000 --> 00:33:05.079 dark on the side of the mountain. It is darkest before the Dawn, 464 00:33:05.359 --> 00:33:09.240 right and so then you just get really focused on the next step and you 465 00:33:09.359 --> 00:33:13.960 just do the next step and those hard times and those dark times you focus 466 00:33:14.000 --> 00:33:15.680 on the next step and when you get the next step, then, oh 467 00:33:15.759 --> 00:33:19.799 guess what, there's another step and you take the next step and you just 468 00:33:19.920 --> 00:33:22.359 keep climbing until you get to the top and watch the sunrise. And that's 469 00:33:22.400 --> 00:33:27.599 the way life is. You're gonna have a constant flow of steps that are 470 00:33:27.599 --> 00:33:30.440 coming to you and some of them are gonna be tall and someone are gonna 471 00:33:30.440 --> 00:33:32.000 be small, and some of them are gonna be easy and some of them 472 00:33:32.039 --> 00:33:37.359 are gonna be hard. And it's not a matter of whether or not there's 473 00:33:37.200 --> 00:33:42.720 there's steps that are coming that are big or not. It's your choice as 474 00:33:42.720 --> 00:33:45.440 to whether they're insurmounting more or not, and you have to stay in the 475 00:33:45.480 --> 00:33:51.160 mindset that everything is surmountable. Everything. I conquer everything. I am an 476 00:33:51.200 --> 00:33:54.599 achiever and I go back to that that one phrase that you know, whatever 477 00:33:54.640 --> 00:33:59.039 you ask in God's name, is granted. Moses talked to the burning Bush 478 00:33:59.039 --> 00:34:02.079 and the burning Bush literally said, when he asked his name, I am 479 00:34:02.119 --> 00:34:07.359 so anything you put after I am and put full faith in, belief in, 480 00:34:07.000 --> 00:34:12.119 is literally what you're creating into your experience. And so when you get 481 00:34:12.159 --> 00:34:14.760 that moment, people ask me all the time they say think they well, 482 00:34:14.760 --> 00:34:15.880 they say to me all the time, I think I'm on the wrong path, 483 00:34:16.639 --> 00:34:21.360 and I say you're thinking about this wrong there's only one path, and 484 00:34:21.400 --> 00:34:24.000 the path that's created every time you put your foot down, because you're the 485 00:34:24.000 --> 00:34:28.840 one creating your experience. The Path is just just what's behind you that you've 486 00:34:28.880 --> 00:34:34.280 done right. And when you finally realize that that you get to turn your 487 00:34:34.280 --> 00:34:37.559 path wherever you want to go. I mean, this is gonna this next 488 00:34:37.639 --> 00:34:40.159 piece. Something I'm about to say sounds like I'm bragging. I don't want 489 00:34:40.199 --> 00:34:43.840 it to feel like that at all, because it's not where it's coming from. 490 00:34:43.960 --> 00:34:46.960 Um, I have been to thirty countries around the world. I've worked 491 00:34:47.000 --> 00:34:51.719 with Brad Pitt and David Duchovny and movie stars. I have done over four 492 00:34:51.760 --> 00:34:53.559 thousand stun shows. I've been on the front lines of a rack Afghanistan. 493 00:34:53.760 --> 00:34:58.000 I climb out Sinai Climb Machu Picchu. So I'm in the bluelue goods of 494 00:34:58.000 --> 00:35:01.280 Iceland. I have been in the pyramid of Giza by myself. I have, 495 00:35:01.559 --> 00:35:06.199 I have, I have cleaned up, I have, I have, 496 00:35:06.320 --> 00:35:08.440 I have, I have, I have done more things than most people will 497 00:35:08.480 --> 00:35:14.400 ever do in ten lifetimes. And it's only because I know what I'm talking 498 00:35:14.440 --> 00:35:19.400 about, because I know that I can sit there and declare my life and 499 00:35:19.519 --> 00:35:22.800 just put my small thoughts, words and deeds into action and they will show 500 00:35:22.840 --> 00:35:28.920 me exponential growth and amazing things. And I've done it, and I've done 501 00:35:28.960 --> 00:35:31.000 it for you know, since I since I was twenty two years old. 502 00:35:31.159 --> 00:35:36.400 I'm now, Um, right, I don't know, fifty seven. Very 503 00:35:36.400 --> 00:35:38.760 proud of it, right I, and I'm not stopping now. You know, 504 00:35:38.880 --> 00:35:42.480 every day I get up and there's still something new that I learned. 505 00:35:42.519 --> 00:35:45.119 You know, I don't know. There's a there's a concept that I hear 506 00:35:45.119 --> 00:35:50.840 in business all the time. They talk about mastery, and mastery to me 507 00:35:50.920 --> 00:35:53.960 is a very interesting thing because I don't believe in such thing as mastery, 508 00:35:54.480 --> 00:35:58.679 because mastery, when, when somebody says mastery, what they think of is 509 00:35:59.559 --> 00:36:06.840 UM skills, proficiency. They know everything of one one uh technique or one 510 00:36:07.039 --> 00:36:09.079 style or something. They're a master of that style, they're a master of 511 00:36:09.079 --> 00:36:14.920 that technique. But the reality of it is is they're gonna they've they've learned 512 00:36:14.920 --> 00:36:17.639 everything that can be learned up to that point and then someone's gonna come up 513 00:36:17.639 --> 00:36:21.480 behind them, is gonna learn everything that they know from that that point and 514 00:36:21.519 --> 00:36:24.800 then they're going to improvise and they're going to explore new things and they're going 515 00:36:24.840 --> 00:36:29.840 to add to the art form or the technique or and so who's the master 516 00:36:29.920 --> 00:36:32.599 now? The Guy who knows up to that point or the guy who's now 517 00:36:32.639 --> 00:36:37.360 expanding and going taking it to the next level? So every day, you 518 00:36:37.400 --> 00:36:40.519 know, I do whips and Numb chucks in my corporate speeches and I, 519 00:36:40.599 --> 00:36:44.519 like I said before we went on the air, I actually take someone from 520 00:36:44.559 --> 00:36:47.599 my audience and using my techniques and under five minutes they learned to crack a 521 00:36:47.599 --> 00:36:52.159 whip and take targets out of my hand. And you know, it's all 522 00:36:52.159 --> 00:36:55.039 by shifting their mindset and getting rid of their fears and getting them just taking 523 00:36:55.320 --> 00:37:00.159 very present moment actions. But the interesting thing is I have to look at 524 00:37:00.199 --> 00:37:06.559 that that moment and say, okay, the way they're doing this is by 525 00:37:06.599 --> 00:37:10.719 the concepts that I teach and this teach that those concepts break them out of 526 00:37:10.760 --> 00:37:15.880 those fear cycles, puts them into this this moment of achievement and put them 527 00:37:15.880 --> 00:37:23.199 on this pathway. And if you can take your moment and just realize it's 528 00:37:23.239 --> 00:37:28.719 the only thing that you really have, your moment is the only thing you 529 00:37:28.800 --> 00:37:32.320 really have and you put all your thoughts, words and deeds in the same 530 00:37:32.360 --> 00:37:38.360 direction, your mastery of life is the fact that when you are moving forward, 531 00:37:38.760 --> 00:37:44.000 your life is ever expanding and ever growing. And I go outside every 532 00:37:44.079 --> 00:37:47.800 day, every day with whips and Numb Chucks, and I play with my 533 00:37:47.840 --> 00:37:52.519 whips and Numb chucks every day and I expand on them and I try new 534 00:37:52.599 --> 00:37:58.320 things and I sometimes I whack myself in the head. Sometimes I whack myself 535 00:37:58.320 --> 00:38:01.960 in places. I don't want to talk about this right but but, but 536 00:38:02.039 --> 00:38:06.280 I do whip, I do nunchucks and I do tricks with my feet and 537 00:38:06.400 --> 00:38:08.920 I do things where I wrap spin them around my neck and let them slide 538 00:38:08.920 --> 00:38:13.519 down my arms and I do all these things that you never see nunchucked people 539 00:38:13.519 --> 00:38:21.159 do, because I continue to explore and improvise and experiment. It's the same 540 00:38:21.199 --> 00:38:23.760 thing with whips. I do something with whips every day because I'm trying to 541 00:38:23.800 --> 00:38:30.880 explore, an experiment, and there's no such thing as mastery. There's only 542 00:38:30.199 --> 00:38:34.800 such thing as growth, and all you have to do is take your your 543 00:38:34.880 --> 00:38:39.800 life and realize your life is ever expanding and the second you stop expanding is 544 00:38:39.800 --> 00:38:43.920 when you will you will drop into something else, which is called stagnation. 545 00:38:44.480 --> 00:38:46.760 And it's just like water in nature, water going downhill, flowing, full 546 00:38:46.800 --> 00:38:50.880 of oxygen, in a life, very healthy. Think that same water and 547 00:38:50.880 --> 00:38:53.039 put in the PUDDLE. It turns poisonous and bugs lay their eggs in it. 548 00:38:53.400 --> 00:38:57.760 You know, life is motion. You've gotta keep moving. Yeah, 549 00:38:58.480 --> 00:39:02.039 I'M gonna go back a little bit because I'm gonna tie some cases together. 550 00:39:02.079 --> 00:39:06.480 As you were talking, I started connecting some dots and I just got this 551 00:39:06.480 --> 00:39:09.119 this visualization in my head. But you were talking about climbing these steps where 552 00:39:09.159 --> 00:39:13.960 some are easy and some are harder, and then you you wanted to say 553 00:39:14.000 --> 00:39:19.320 how you can teach people, through your Um your techniques, to you know, 554 00:39:19.360 --> 00:39:22.760 in five minutes, to crack whips out of your crack, crack targets 555 00:39:22.760 --> 00:39:25.159 out of your hand. And I was thinking about this is, as you're 556 00:39:25.159 --> 00:39:30.119 going to the journey right and you're going for your goal and you become aware 557 00:39:30.159 --> 00:39:31.840 and you're in that moment, sometimes you come look at the steps that you 558 00:39:31.920 --> 00:39:36.000 have to climb and realize you can skip a few of them, like I 559 00:39:36.000 --> 00:39:37.840 can just jump, I can jump a few, and it was bringing me 560 00:39:37.880 --> 00:39:43.760 to price purciase books you squared, where he talks about there are times that 561 00:39:43.840 --> 00:39:46.559 we can actually skip a few a few runs of the ladder and make quantum 562 00:39:46.639 --> 00:39:52.519 leaps, and a lot of people can't think of visualize the idea that in 563 00:39:52.559 --> 00:39:58.039 five minutes, I can take a whip and be so proficient enough to take 564 00:39:58.079 --> 00:40:01.079 something out of someone's hand. Well, we can in when you practice these 565 00:40:01.119 --> 00:40:05.920 techniques right and you're implementing things, because, again, we're doing work and 566 00:40:05.920 --> 00:40:10.199 it's not the work sometimes it's just implementing techniques and tactics that you learn that 567 00:40:10.280 --> 00:40:15.280 you through reading, through training series, through motivational speaking, whatever that was 568 00:40:15.400 --> 00:40:21.239 like, where you can skip those steps and you can become proficient and a 569 00:40:21.360 --> 00:40:24.880 short amount of time. And I think that's that should encourage people that it's 570 00:40:24.960 --> 00:40:30.039 not always it doesn't always have to be one step at a time. It 571 00:40:30.119 --> 00:40:35.320 just has to be implementing things on a continuous basis, constantly showing up and, 572 00:40:35.360 --> 00:40:40.239 as you were saying, movement, constant movement, consistent, constant space, 573 00:40:40.280 --> 00:40:44.559 repetition. You just keep going, keep doing, keep going, and 574 00:40:44.599 --> 00:40:46.159 you're gonna end up. You will end up where it is you want to 575 00:40:46.199 --> 00:40:51.760 be right and let me, let me kind of share the process of taking 576 00:40:51.840 --> 00:40:54.679 someone through that whip thing, because I think you're gonna find it fascinating. 577 00:40:55.280 --> 00:41:00.480 I choose the most timid person I can find in my audience on per us 578 00:41:00.079 --> 00:41:05.480 because if they do it, they're gonna have a life changing experience and if 579 00:41:05.480 --> 00:41:07.679 they do it, their peers are gonna go, Oh my God, I 580 00:41:07.679 --> 00:41:10.760 can't believe they did it and they're gonna have experience too. So I get 581 00:41:10.800 --> 00:41:14.639 that person. I bring the most timid person I can find to the stage. 582 00:41:14.920 --> 00:41:16.880 Now, sometimes that means I'm bringing them on stage in front of thousands 583 00:41:16.880 --> 00:41:22.119 of people. Right. So me, as a leader in this process, 584 00:41:22.159 --> 00:41:24.039 I'm like, okay, I know that they're they're afraid of being in front 585 00:41:24.079 --> 00:41:28.159 of these people, they're afraid of being judged, they're afraid of them not 586 00:41:28.280 --> 00:41:30.800 liking them or loving them or approving of them. So as I walk on 587 00:41:30.880 --> 00:41:32.960 stage, the first thing I have to do is I have to get them 588 00:41:32.960 --> 00:41:36.679 on a new purpose. So I walk on stage, the first thing I 589 00:41:36.719 --> 00:41:38.880 say to them I say thank you so much for coming up here, for 590 00:41:39.000 --> 00:41:42.360 helping me, because you know, this is gonna be Great. We're gonna 591 00:41:42.360 --> 00:41:45.760 be able to really teach some things today. So I've given them a new 592 00:41:45.800 --> 00:41:49.000 purpose. Then I turned to the audience and I say, isn't she a 593 00:41:49.079 --> 00:41:52.559 rock star? And I get the audience got whoo cheering for so I've already 594 00:41:52.559 --> 00:41:55.920 taken the fear away that they're not gonna like her, because I started with 595 00:41:55.960 --> 00:42:00.800 them liking her right then I started saying saying, you know, just relax, 596 00:42:00.840 --> 00:42:04.079 we're gonna be an easy it's gonna be very easy. So I'm keeping 597 00:42:04.079 --> 00:42:06.559 her in a in a calm mindset. I said, do you have any 598 00:42:06.599 --> 00:42:09.599 hobbies, and this she use yeah, and eventually I leave the conversation to 599 00:42:09.679 --> 00:42:13.400 fishing. I said, have you ever? Have you ever gone fishing? 600 00:42:13.400 --> 00:42:15.880 And sometimes they say yes, sometimes they say now. I said, well, 601 00:42:15.920 --> 00:42:19.679 you know, look today, let me just show you the the the 602 00:42:19.719 --> 00:42:24.320 easiest way and the most effective way to cast a fishing rod and she said 603 00:42:24.519 --> 00:42:28.320 okay, and she's totally fine with it. And I walk over to the 604 00:42:28.360 --> 00:42:30.480 other side of the stage and I pick up a bull whip and I walked 605 00:42:30.480 --> 00:42:35.559 back to her with a bull whip. Right. So now we've been talking 606 00:42:35.559 --> 00:42:37.840 about fishing. Now she sees a whip. So her new thought is, 607 00:42:37.840 --> 00:42:40.320 Oh my God, it's a whip, I'm gonna hurt somebody or I'm gonna 608 00:42:40.360 --> 00:42:44.960 hurt myself. And before she can even let her mind go there, I 609 00:42:45.000 --> 00:42:47.880 say to her it's we're going to treat it like a fishing rid. It's 610 00:42:49.000 --> 00:42:51.719 it's just a fishing ride, same action. Don't worry about it, you're 611 00:42:51.760 --> 00:42:53.960 just gonna you're just gonna go fishing. So I keep her in the mindset 612 00:42:54.000 --> 00:42:58.159 of fishing before she can get deeper into it even more. I turned to 613 00:42:58.239 --> 00:43:00.039 the part of the audience where she's facing and I say, Hey, you 614 00:43:00.079 --> 00:43:06.280 guys over here, everybody will make a fish face and like this. So 615 00:43:06.320 --> 00:43:10.400 now now she's got half of an audience looking like idiots. Right. She's 616 00:43:10.559 --> 00:43:15.239 she's laughing at them because it's very funny. You know, they're no longer 617 00:43:15.320 --> 00:43:19.360 the people she's worried about. Judging her because they look ridiculous. Right. 618 00:43:19.800 --> 00:43:22.400 And then I said to her, I said, just choose much fish you 619 00:43:22.400 --> 00:43:27.360 want to catch and caster fishing rod. Right, and she catch fishing rod 620 00:43:28.400 --> 00:43:31.199 and the whip cracks. I said that was great. Catch another fish and 621 00:43:31.280 --> 00:43:35.840 crack, and she cracks the whip again. Right. So then I go 622 00:43:35.920 --> 00:43:37.800 over and I pull a target out. And what the targets are there? 623 00:43:37.840 --> 00:43:43.679 Their Pretzel Rods, because they make a great little crack and they throw pieces 624 00:43:43.679 --> 00:43:45.639 all over this age. It's great. Cleaning crews don't like it, but 625 00:43:45.679 --> 00:43:51.559 I think it's great. So I pull the target out and I say the 626 00:43:51.599 --> 00:43:54.679 first being the leader guiding her through the process, I know the first thing 627 00:43:54.760 --> 00:44:00.079 she's gonna come to is her fear of hurting me. So the first I 628 00:44:00.239 --> 00:44:01.360 do, and this is a this is a little nor linguistic trick, I 629 00:44:01.360 --> 00:44:06.159 pull on her hypnosis. Nor linguistic. I say to her, did you 630 00:44:06.199 --> 00:44:09.039 hear it crack? Did you hear it crack? And she says yes. 631 00:44:09.280 --> 00:44:14.199 Now what I've just done is I've anchored her success to a to a plosive 632 00:44:14.280 --> 00:44:17.800 sound. So did you hear it crack? Yes, and then I do 633 00:44:17.840 --> 00:44:22.000 what's called a hypnotic wipe. I do a hand swipe and well, this 634 00:44:22.079 --> 00:44:24.119 suggesture everyone in the world does. If you were listening to this in the 635 00:44:24.199 --> 00:44:28.920 PODCAST, I'm taking my hand and I'm just swatting it down like like I'm 636 00:44:28.920 --> 00:44:31.280 swatting a fly downward, and we all use this gesture in life. Naturally, 637 00:44:31.519 --> 00:44:37.519 somebody gives us a really effusive compliment and we get embarrassed. We go 638 00:44:37.679 --> 00:44:43.360 stop and we throw our hand down right. This is a natural gesture. 639 00:44:43.400 --> 00:44:46.119 Remake. But in hypnosis they call this a wipe and what they do is 640 00:44:46.159 --> 00:44:51.400 they go you anchor on the positives. So so you did. You hear 641 00:44:51.480 --> 00:44:54.119 crack, and then I do the wipe. So you already know how to 642 00:44:54.159 --> 00:44:58.880 make it crack. And right behind the wipe, where I've just cleaned away 643 00:44:58.880 --> 00:45:02.280 all the junk, I put in exactly what I wanted to think. So 644 00:45:02.360 --> 00:45:07.760 you already know how to make it crack. So now I'm positively reinforcing this 645 00:45:07.840 --> 00:45:09.039 moment. So now she's going, Oh, yeah, you know, I 646 00:45:09.320 --> 00:45:13.679 don't look a crack. So now I know her biggest thing is is hurting 647 00:45:13.679 --> 00:45:17.239 me. I follow that right up with I promise you're not gonna hurt me. 648 00:45:19.639 --> 00:45:25.480 Sometimes you just got a lot of people. I'm okay. When you're 649 00:45:25.480 --> 00:45:32.119 guiding somebody through fear and you're the leader, your job literally is to meet 650 00:45:32.119 --> 00:45:36.159 them where they are and bring them along. So for me, I have 651 00:45:36.280 --> 00:45:38.800 to realize it's not her, not my experience, it's hers, and so 652 00:45:38.880 --> 00:45:43.559 I have to go there and I have to look at her process from the 653 00:45:43.639 --> 00:45:46.719 idea of she's afraid. Well, the first of my fiveps is fear. 654 00:45:47.000 --> 00:45:50.480 So I want to get her out of that. First thing I do it 655 00:45:50.599 --> 00:45:52.920 that you don't want. I promise you're gonna take a breath, relax, 656 00:45:53.639 --> 00:45:57.679 and I get her to exhale. Right, I said, all I want 657 00:45:57.719 --> 00:46:01.440 you to do is just look right here and cast your fishing rod and she 658 00:46:01.480 --> 00:46:06.239 goes caple and she hits the target out of my hand. Everything every time. 659 00:46:07.719 --> 00:46:09.440 It's the fear that limits you. It's the fear that that's going to 660 00:46:09.480 --> 00:46:13.119 be constant in your life. It's the fear that's going to stop you from 661 00:46:13.239 --> 00:46:15.760 from taking the action and following through. It's the fear that's going to take 662 00:46:15.800 --> 00:46:20.159 you to tell you they don't have faith. You have to be leveraging and 663 00:46:20.239 --> 00:46:22.880 managing your fear on a regular level and on every step of the way, 664 00:46:23.000 --> 00:46:27.800 and if you're not willing to take the moment of leveraging that fear. And 665 00:46:27.920 --> 00:46:30.519 the reason she went from never having done something to being in front of thousands 666 00:46:30.559 --> 00:46:35.400 of people cracking whips and then taking targets out of my hand is because of 667 00:46:35.440 --> 00:46:39.320 the fact that we managed her fears all the way along and then took her 668 00:46:39.360 --> 00:46:44.280 belief. Now I want to back up a little bit. So earlier on 669 00:46:44.639 --> 00:46:46.639 I said, did you hear it crack? Did you hear it cracked? 670 00:46:47.519 --> 00:46:52.719 That moment is a very interesting moment on a neural standpoint, because what I 671 00:46:52.800 --> 00:47:00.079 actually did was I shortened her learning curve from learning a skill to knowledge of 672 00:47:00.079 --> 00:47:04.079 a skill by shifting her out of learning the skill. And it's like you 673 00:47:04.119 --> 00:47:08.119 were just saying earlier about you know, sometimes we can take great leaps and 674 00:47:08.159 --> 00:47:12.280 get to that next level. The same thing what I just did to her 675 00:47:12.400 --> 00:47:15.159 was I took her from weeks of training with a whip before she hit a 676 00:47:15.199 --> 00:47:22.760 target two seconds just by shifting her mindset. But the interesting thing about hypnosis 677 00:47:22.760 --> 00:47:28.920 and or linguistics, none of it works. All it is is is uh, 678 00:47:28.960 --> 00:47:36.239 technical. Um, what's the word I'm looking for? Oh, convincing, 679 00:47:36.400 --> 00:47:40.159 technical convincing. I'm technically convincing her how to do something right, but 680 00:47:40.679 --> 00:47:45.800 she's the one who was convinced. None of those things would have happened if 681 00:47:45.800 --> 00:47:49.000 she didn't herself take it and say, yeah, I'm going to do it 682 00:47:49.559 --> 00:47:52.239 right. So, but people will put a lot of faith into other people 683 00:47:52.280 --> 00:47:55.199 what they're saying to them. That doctor said to me, you know, 684 00:47:55.239 --> 00:47:59.639 you'll never get out of this bed. I could have put a lot of 685 00:47:59.639 --> 00:48:02.679 faith in at he could have convinced me. I just didn't let him and 686 00:48:02.760 --> 00:48:07.800 with her, by by her letting me convince her in that couple of seconds, 687 00:48:08.239 --> 00:48:12.599 that she already knew how to crack a whip. It took me months 688 00:48:12.639 --> 00:48:15.639 to learn how to do it. Well, you know, but she learned 689 00:48:15.639 --> 00:48:20.199 in seconds just because of the fact that she was able to take that leap 690 00:48:20.760 --> 00:48:24.320 and go to the next place. Yeah, uh, we could go on 691 00:48:24.440 --> 00:48:29.440 for days. We're right at right at time and I think it's a really 692 00:48:29.480 --> 00:48:34.000 good place to lead off because we've gone through everything right. But the key 693 00:48:34.159 --> 00:48:37.719 at this point is managed the fear, because we're always going to face it 694 00:48:37.880 --> 00:48:40.880 when we go out there and we start off thinking yeah, we're gung hope, 695 00:48:40.880 --> 00:48:44.920 but the fear it will come it'll it'll happen. It always does, 696 00:48:45.000 --> 00:48:49.960 and so just manage that, continue to take the action can just always have 697 00:48:50.039 --> 00:48:52.199 the movement and have the belief, the faith in yourself that you can't do 698 00:48:52.239 --> 00:48:57.320 it, we can do it. Anybody can write and so and with your 699 00:48:57.360 --> 00:49:00.760 story, it just it's it's just another one of those and so many out 700 00:49:00.760 --> 00:49:04.920 there that are. You're not the only one and you never will be and 701 00:49:04.960 --> 00:49:09.440 you're not the last one that's gonna be able to take their mind and utilize 702 00:49:09.440 --> 00:49:14.000 it as a tool to progress them forward out of any situation that they're really 703 00:49:14.039 --> 00:49:15.400 in. And so I think this is a really good place to lead off. 704 00:49:15.400 --> 00:49:22.079 But I really want Um because just hearing your story about that, I'm 705 00:49:22.119 --> 00:49:27.599 sure there's be some business owners out there or whomever that wants to have you 706 00:49:27.639 --> 00:49:30.119 as a keynote speaker, because that would just be cool stuff right there. 707 00:49:30.119 --> 00:49:32.800 So how can people get in touch with you if they want to utilize that? 708 00:49:34.280 --> 00:49:37.280 The easiest way to get a hold of me is corporate action hero Dot 709 00:49:37.280 --> 00:49:39.760 Com and you can find all my facebook and twitter and Linkedin all on there. 710 00:49:40.199 --> 00:49:43.960 Um, I also have a for those of you guys who want some 711 00:49:44.039 --> 00:49:47.039 daily inspiration.
