Welcome to the making of a DM one question to change your future. That's what we're going to talk about on today's show and so much more so with that said, let's get started.
(00:17): A more I'm I'm here to helping teach him what I, what I know and how I did it to discover freedom there. Ain't no question mark Kevins. When he step the he's closing deal, I'm just tell him what the, for I'm a deal makeup, a deal makeup, but I'm not just a deal maker. I'm a dream maker. Hey there, boy, mark. Kevin D yeah. If I sound a little giddy today, because I am, I'm hanging out in the Treehouse office here in Kirkland, Ohio overlooking a 200 foot ravine to my left and right. And back, and it's, uh, absolutely amazing. You can see it on social media. I posted about the Treehouse and all, but if you guys are new here, thank you so much to the making of the DM. It's been a crazy last 14 days to say the least, and I still got another home stretch of 10 days left, but, uh, I kind of wanna share some stuff with you guys about, I just had my birthday on June 19th on father's day. So to your father's happy father's day, hope you had an absolute epic day and, uh, share some cool stuff that happened here. But, um, I want to talk to you about a lot of things in business and life today.
(01:38): It's gonna really, I, I, I believe we're all dealing with this stuff. So I just wanna talk about some real stuff as we always do here on the making of a DM before I get started. Thank you guys so much for the, uh, five star reviews over on iTunes and whatever platform you utilize. Um, we've had a surge of book sales, a surge of downloads. Um, recently I was speaking at lions, not sheep with my boy, Sean Whelan out in Utah. And, uh, thank you guys for everyone that supported that. It was absolutely epic. It was a really cool moment, a really, really cool moment. And, uh, like I said, I shared that last week, but it's, it's pretty neat to see all the amazing people out there building a life that they want and getting their house in order as Sean always says. So, um, let's dive into it.
(02:24): Um, today's gonna be kind of a random show. I got some notes here to talk to you about, but you know, we all have something to accomplish. And what I mean by that is I sit here and I'm sharing my life pretty visibly on social media. I only share probably an, a smidget of what's really going on over here, but I do have a lot of cool stuff going on. I have a lot of crazy shit going on too, so don't get it twisted. But if I was a spectator, uh, consumption mode, I would think that everyone has everything. And I'm, I'm out there like bouncing around a hundred different places. And what I'm talking about today is really focus. And I want you to do something today, take an exercise and, uh, grab a piece of paper sometime. And you know, when you got 20, 30 minutes and really ask yourself, what do I want, right?
(03:21): What do you want? It's not, what does mark want? Or what does mark have? Cause right. We all might want the big houses, the big cars, the jets and all this cool shit, but do you really want it? There's a difference between wanting it and really wanting it. What I'm trying to do is relieve a lot of stress off of people that are trying to be something or someone that they don't really want to be. It's interesting. I was walking, I I've been working out walking with a 40 pound vest here in my neighborhood. This is a neighborhood where there's not a house under a million dollars. And by the way, a million dollars in Ohio is a lot of money, million dollars of Florida, not so much, but the house area is where we're at minimum. Minimum entry is a million dollars. These are all, you know, these are estate style housing.
(04:10): And you know, some of 'em go up to, you know, 20, 30 million, but as I'm walking around and I'm not saying this to be douchey, I'm just sharing real life stuff. Had my headset on, I'm listening to an audio book and I'm got this vest and I'm walking up a pretty big hill and I'm looking left and right. And forward and up. And just like you ever have those gratitude moments where you're like, holy shit. And then I start thinking, this is a true story. I was like, what the hell do these people do for a living? How can they afford these houses? This is tax. I mean, you're paying, you know, five to six grand a month just in taxes. And then you got lawn care, you got flowers, you got, you know, pool maintenance. I mean, you got everything, right? I mean, literally just to maintain the house in Ohio costs 130 a year, minimum, $130,000 a year.
(05:07): Right. And I keep walking and I lit, I shit, you not, I stopped. I'm like, dude, you're one of the people in this complex, you, you own one of the nicest houses in this complex. It just hit me. This, this may sound weird. But sometimes we forget that we're all on a journey. I'm no different than anybody else. I'm a hillbilly kid from Ohio that just figured out how to make money. And I love making money. I love building businesses. I love driving revenue. I love, you know, taking massive risk. I love it. I, I couldn't imagine truthfully, I couldn't imagine life without it. And I start thinking and you know, across the street, I have a guy, a pretty prominent lawyer. Very, very, he's a business owner lawyer though. There's a difference. He owns, he has thousands of lawyers under him, multiple states. Then across the street, another guy owns a massive company that does billing for Medicare and Medicaid and all that stuff. And then next to me, you know, I, you start thinking about these are business owners. Now. I'm not saying some employees don't live here, cuz there's several. But most people that's in this complex are definitely risk takers. I E business owners.
(06:30): And I'm not saying you have to be a business owner to live an amazing life. That's the path I've chosen. That's the path I will live until eternity until I die. And ideally if I do it right, it will live beyond me. You see, I have hundreds of people that rely on me every day. Hundreds of employees, vendors, staff, EV like hundreds of people. That's not for everybody. It's a, it could be. And you're like, if you're going after it and you're not, you, you don't want that. It might become a massive burden. It could cause massive internal destruction. Again, you're trying to be someone you don't wanna be. And I would hate for you whatever age you're at today to be living in someone else's shoes or trying to, if you will, cuz you're never going to be satisfied. You'll never be happy, cuz you're always chasing the next thing they got, not what you have or what you want.
(07:39): One thing I've realized about myself over the years and, and through coaching and mentoring that I, I do for others and others do for me is that I've become very crystal clear on who I am. And I'm very clear on it. I have no ego attached to it. I know what I'm great at. I know what I absolutely suck ass at. And I don't act like I know how to do everything anymore. When I didn't have that much money, I acted like I knew everything. I was a big shot. I was a massive king of the dip sheds I wanted yes. People around me everywhere. Cause I was the boss. That's so stupid. But again, just to be clear though, I was mimicking how I thought success looked through other people that I meant on my journey. See, back then I didn't have social media where I could look outwardly. I didn't have audio books. I was reading leadership books and I was doing all this cool stuff, but I never understood. Like I, I just thought you wanted to be the boss. You know, you always see these TV shows where the boss is, the man he's, he's the, you know, he lays down the law. He, he does crazy stuff. He, you know, he, he tells people off and he disrespects himself and others. Like that's kind of what I was doing. Not kind of, I was doing that stupid.
(09:00): When I sit down and really started getting an authentic with myself. See, everyone talks about authenticity. Well, you can't share outwardly authenticity until you actually know what the fuck you stand for and who you are. And when you do that, authenticity is not a process. It's it's just who you are. I say stupid shit all the time. I am silly. I'm quirky. I'm funny. I'm go. I'm goofy. My kids laugh at my stupid jokes. That's fun to me. I like to make people laugh, but I also love tell people to my demise. Oftentimes like I genuinely, I invest a lot of money in this podcast show. I hire people to help edit it. I hire people to help put it together. I hire people to help deploy it. We email it. I mean it costs six figures a year to do a podcast show for free. And I'm not saying, oh thank you, mark. It's not about that. I'm just sharing. I do this because I love to. And I want to, and I get to, I don't have to. I get to do this. See the old mark. Would've never done something like this because it cost money. And I would ask what's my return on investment.
(10:18): I was talking with a guy yesterday, say, dude, what's your KPIs for social media? I said help people. like, that's, that's my KPI. See the thing is, as a business owner, you get stuff twisted. You try to business eyes, everything. Well, what's your KPI's going to bed. What's your like, everyone's so focused on certain data. That's not quantifiable. My impact by doing this podcast show might not show up for 20 years. And I'm cool with that. But if I was doing this directly to make money and only make money, which I'm not, I'd have a way different strategic plan. My message would be geared to sell the shit out of you. 24 7. My agenda would be misaligned with your objective. You're coming here to learn and expand and grow. I'm coming here to get in your fucking pocket and take your cash. That's a misalignment.
(11:14): There's a lot of shows out there that that's their agenda. That's their goal. They're sitting around a table right now saying podcast, show number, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. How much are we gonna make? How many eyeballs and ears do we get? And let's extract money. Let's go offer X boom done. And you're sitting there learning, thinking. You're learning how to make your life better. But what you're doing is learning how to line their pockets. Now, listen, I'm not knocking the models. That's a model. My model, my agenda here is simply to serve, to sit across the desk from you or sit across the cigar lounge and hang out and smoke a cigar with you to connect with you at a deeper level. I wish I could meet 8 billion people. One on one. Unfortunately it's just not the case, but it's a pretty cool goal.
(12:04): I wanna make an impact in people's lives. Everyone. I touch from the assistant to the, you know, house cleaner to the lawn care guy. Like my, my pond guy here. We had ponds on the property. He literally went above and beyond his name's Lou great guy. I didn't even say anything. I like dude, like, you know, I have a party on Sunday. Father's day. It's my birthday. Some people here, I love shit to be nice. I love shit to be working. And he looked at me and said done. He showed up Saturday. He was here all day. Keep mind he was here all day, Friday. He, he put this in his schedule when he didn't even have time. He made time.
(12:44): I think about that because the old mark, the guy said F you, you know, whatever, but dude, I pay people fast. I respect people and I want to help people. I wanna see people succeed. You succeeding does not take away from me. The truth is you succeeding will actually, we could do more together. If there's one metric that I would love to measure, I don't know how to do it yet. And if you know how, please let me know. I'd love to know how I wanna know how many people globally. We employ as a unit, as a DM making of a DM family. How many people do we employ? That's a metric. I think about often I wanna employ tens of thousands of people because I believe if we can accomplish that. When we accomplish that, I believe I can change their lives. I believe I can change their trajectory, their financial legacy.
(13:44): You gotta remember. Not everybody wants to be a millionaire. Multimillionaire. They understand it's a different cadence, but they wanna be respected. They wanna be rewarded. And they want to be recognized on a consistent basis for the efforts that they put in. Now, listen, if you're a lazy piece of shit, I don't want you in my environment at all ever, but those people will get weeded out through the process, but I've realized what I'm great at. I'm still learning by the way, I'm still editing this. This is something that has to have constant focus on because as we get bigger in the game, I, I just turned 44 on June 19th. It's absolutely insane. But I want you to get very crystal clear. You got UN and, and let me back go back for a second. I have two young children, almost seven and three. And my wife, I love my family.
(14:37): Not all business owners wanna be with their family. They're traveling around the world to get away from their family, sleeping with 20 different people or what I like again, not judging it. It's just, my agenda is to be at home every day, which I am. I'm out in the tree house about a thousand yards from the house I took my son's little, 125 CC Jeep. I drove it here, takes about a minute and I'm a family guy. First. I wanna be known as a great dad, a great husband and a great leader in that order. See, I don't believe like if, how can you be a great leader at a job or in a company and not be a great family, man. I think you're failing at a massive level. Massive. You know, I watched that Steve jobs movie and I thought about I'm like, dude, like I would not trade my life.
(15:28): I wouldn't trade one ounce of my life for anything. He has think he's a smart guy, but he, he had no personal life. He disowned his, I don't understand how people coming off a father's day. But think about how could you be a father and not want to be with your children? It's like one of the most amazing gifts ever, ever is to be a father. Maybe you had a bad childhood. Have you ever asked yourself if I had a bad childhood and I'm now a father, how can I like dude? What changes? If you're a bad father, they're gonna have a bad childhood. It continues and continues and continue. You're aware if you're listening to this show right now, and you're a bad per a bad parent, you're fucking aware and you gotta do something about it because if you don't break the cycle, who's going to break the cycle who the answer's simple.
(16:28): It's you you're woke. You've realized that you've messed up. It's okay. We've all messed up. We all have a story. We all have stories going on. We all have a past, but it's not about the past. It's about today. Moving forward, move your ego to the side. I did a dad podcast show yesterday and it was father's day. Like I said, the day before and my son, my wife got, got this little book, 50 things about my dad or something like that. And my son has to fill in the blank. I can't read it here, cuz I'll start crying. But like I was in the sauna finishing up the night at 10 o'clock at night on father's day, kids are sleeping and everyone's sleeping actually. And I'm reading this book and I begin to cry a lot for 15 minutes. I cried. Keep in mind a lot going on.
(17:20): I just turned 44 it's father's day. And I just got this cool book by my son. My daughter's not old enough to kind of write this stuff, but I had a thought and that's why I kept crying. And I'll try to share it with you, but , it's hard because there's so much to do in the day and everyone I what pisses me off and what gets me excited at the same time is I can see people that have it in them, but they're walking around. Like they're gonna live forever. We're not going to live forever. So why do we act like that? Why do we, why is our move so small? Why are we so afraid to say something that might get, you know, made fun of or whatever as adults. This is what I wrote down immediately and said, I don't want to die. I have so much. I want to give the world. I haven't even scratched the surface on June 19, 20, 22. I love my family so much. And without that I wanna lead by example and live, live life to the fullest. I wanna walk my son. I wanna go to my son's wedding.
(18:48): I wanna walk my daughter down the aisle and that's not promised this could be my last podcast show I ever record. I might not wake up. I used death as motivation. I did an entire show about it. This shit's deep, cuz it's real. See I've helped a lot of people accomplish some pretty cool shit. Truth is we're just getting started. But why people invest $50,000 a year to be in the DM family is not surface level, basic bullshit. It's to connect and deepen and grow. If we can grow an individual, you can grow. Anything else that you're working on business is easy. Business is math. FYI. It's a formula just like cooking. Spaghetti's a formula bacon. The cake is a formula. Building. A business is a formula, but there's no manual on being a great dad. A great husband. How to raise kids like all this shit.
(19:45): There's no real manuals. Yes. There's some instruction. There's some stuff that you can learn. But what they fail to mention is there's past to all this stuff. We all have a past and we're all interpretating data at different frequencies, different levels. We under we're we're we take it in, but we're distributing it differently. I was asked on this dad podcast show cuz my dad works really hard. My mom and dad both have their whole life. And he said, does your dad work smart? And I said, well it depends if you're asking me or him, because I believe my dad's worked very smart compared to where he is, come from. My dad had, you know, he worked hard every day, but his father worked five jobs to raise nine kids. He worked hard. So my dad next layer worked very smart in consideration of that, where I'm at today in my life, I would consider I've worked extra smarter, not cuz I'm smarter because I saw the struggle my dad gave and we have technology.
(20:46): We have bigger. I had a bigger vision than my dad. That's not a knock on my dad. My dad had his vision. We all have a vision. We all have that and I'm not comparing it. But you have to understand where you're coming from to understand the question and more importantly, ex you know, understand the answer you're sitting here wondering like for me to make millions of dollars a year is fairly easy. I understand how to do it now. It wasn't always easy. But now it's ultra easy. Why? Well, I have a lot of relationships. I have a lot of knowledge of 26 years, 26 years. As I'm talking to you today, exactly 26 years, I've been in business 26 fucking years to say I've been through a lot is an understatement, but I'm still standing. I'm still here that says something and itself anybody's been in business for 26 years.
(21:47): Understands the grit, the determination, the goals not to. And again, this was not, it's still not always easy. The bigger you get, the bigger, the bigger problems, that's it. But where I'm going with, this is what do you want you, I would hate to see you comparing your life to other people your entire life and never enjoy the fruits of your labor. The fruits of your effort, the late nights, the early mornings, the throat punches, the nuts kicks in the nuts, hitting head back by a, by a two by four in the back of the head when you're not Le when you're least expecting it and so on because you're like, man, I don't have what I want. I'm going for see, I'm not trying to be a corporate Raider. I'm not trying to be a corporate billionaire. I'm a lifestyle entrepreneur that will be worth billions of dollars in the future.
(22:44): My timeline's different than the average person I'm in it forever. Some people are trying to get billions in five years. Cool. I'm not saying I wouldn't like to get there in five years, but there's trade offs to the journey. There's nothing. There's no business opportunity. There's nothing in my life that you could put in front of me that would have me take away from my children and my wife. Nothing. If it's not aligned with those pieces initially, I don't even look at it because my priorities are direct and very clear to myself first and foremost, as well as to other people that communicate with me. You can't mark. Come to Nicaragua. We're gonna dig this well and we're gonna make billions of dollars. Cool. I'm not good luck. Like it's not about the money. It's not about any of that. Like I wanna make impact.
(23:38): I wanna help other people succeed. I can do that from the comfort of my Treehouse. Why my kids play? I can do it from the pool. I can do it from my basement cigar bar. I can do it from hanging out here at the Bachi court. I I like I've built my life for what I want. I don't give a fuck if you want that or not. I really don't. I don't care if you think it's cool or not. Cool. You know, what's really crazy about what I'm talking about. When I say this shit, people actually like it more because they realize it's true. I'm not trying to be someone for you. I'm trying to be me. The better version of me and my authenticity is you is ultimately it's very real and that's attractive.
(24:30): I don't like fake people. I don't have time to be fake. If it's quacks like a duck, it's a fucking duck period, but we need to get focused on you. What do you wanna be? I talked, I did a show about this, about one being a number two. You understand there's many people it's become billionaires and many, many millionaires multimillionaires, a hundred millionaires that were number two is number three is number five is number 20. Like I think Microsoft created over 12,000 multimillionaires. Think about that. A company created over 12,000 multimillionaires bomber was a built multi billionaire number two guy, Steve jobs had a number two guy worth billions of dollars Wozniak. Right? Think about that. Like there's a lot of opportunity being number two. But some people like you're trying to, you know, create all these cool videos and all this content, cuz you think that's what you want, but you know, you don't want it, but you keep doing it.
(25:27): I'm not saying not to do stuff you're uncomfortable with, but like do the stuff you're uncomfortable with to make you the better person in the future. Don't do it for someone else. Do it for you. I do know not everyone's cut out for what I do. I've realized that over the years, what is easy to me is very stressful to others. It's easy for me to make fast multimillion dollar decisions, fast nanosecond fast. If I have the data, I make a move. The average person can't do that. That's the truth. They haven't worked their way, that muscle to get to that point, hiring, firing, Ugh. These are things I hate doing. I hate firing, but that's part of the journey. It's part of the, it's what I gotta do. It is not pleasant.
(26:19): It's actually very sad. If you can't handle these emotions, you're gonna have a rough time. And I'm not saying go self-medicate with alcohol or drugs either. Right? I probably did some of that back in the day, mostly with alcohol where I would over drink. Cuz I'm like, dude, I just gotta do it. I'm scared. I don't know what to do and get caught up in the middle and wait six months before I actually did what I had to do. I learned from that that does not happen anymore. There's a problem. We execute it and move on. You must, once you understand your greater purpose things, get a little bit simpler. You have clear vision, very crystal clear focus. It's funny. I used to B try to tell like when people would ask me what I did, oh, I'm a blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Like I try to prop up now.
(27:06): It's like, dude, I'm just trying to build companies one day at a time. I'm not trying to be a big dog. I'm trying to be me. I'm excited to help people. I want to, sometimes you gotta share what you're doing. It sounds weird when I do podcast shows, cuz you're thinking all this guy does is talk about himself. No dude. I only do that here to share authenticity with you inner conversations with myself. Real shit. As I sit here, I think about the people that we can touch. Not just you, but through you. If I can help you become a better person, a better leader, a better doer. Everything in your life gets better. You become a better father, better wife, better spouse. I want everyone to be better at everything they do. I really do. It's exciting for me to see, you know, as I'm cuz we're coming.
(28:01): Keep in mind too. We're coming up to the event. June 29th and 30th here in Cleveland. And if there's any ticket sales left, you can go see it at Mark Evans, dm.com/cleveland. But um, we'll have three over 300, 400 people there from all over the country, all over the world actually. And these are all business entrepreneur, people that want to grow and expand. They're all paying a thousand dollars each to be there. They'll change people's lives. I'm very conscious of that. It changes my life. How what's already changed my life because I, I, I was questioning if I could put at least 300 people in a room I've never done it. I've done 200 and something, but I've never done 300. It was a stretch goal. We did it. And we're gonna add more than that. Change. My life showed me. What's possible. What my reach is like, listen folks, if you think selling 300 tickets is easy. I, I, I, I challenge you to do it and if you can do it, that's awesome. It's not easy. I'm not in the seminar business. My team is not equipped to do seminars. That's not what we do. We're business builders, doing seminars is a whole nother animal, whole nother animal. It's a lot of moving parts, a lot of coordination.
(29:28): Plus we finish off with a badass James Bond party on the, for the 30th, for my birthday bash party where a hundred percent of nut proceeds go to charity. My goal is to raise at least 150,000 thousand dollars to charity. Last time we did 151 this year. I think we could hit way more, but times are different. So as my life changes, when I see what we're capable of, not only that as a leader, I see my team growing with me. I'm pushing them. They're pushing me. The vision's very crystal clear. We're here to help people. So if you're getting emails and texts from us, it's not because we are spaming you it's because we're fucking paying attention and you're not showing up. And we care about that because we know when you show up, you will change your life.
(30:22): It's a game changer. I've been to over 250 events in my life. Me personally, over 250 events. I used to go weekly in the beginning, weekly, meet 10 people, 20 people, 50 people, two people, whatever I've shown the fuck up. Zoom's cool and all, but it's only zoom. Oh I have so. And so dude, until you meet someone face to face, break bread with them, connect with them, have a beer with them. Get up to the bar, talk real life, shit. Everything's very transactional and surface level. I love the relationship piece of the game. It's not easy. I send lots of gifts out every day. We send lots of, you know, we're, we're talking to people every day. I want you to know I'm not just over here, sitting, hanging out in the Treehouse, doing Dick. I'm hanging out in the Treehouse, working on a big picture of vision, communicating with my teams, organizations, leading, connecting, collaborating, and expanding. So I want you to find out what do you want? Discover that it'll set you free. I want you to execute relentlessly every single day. See, I, I listened to that book by David Goggins, which is awesome. His message is powerful. It's not a it's undeniable, but I have zero fucking desire to be David Goggins, zilch. I wouldn't trade a fucking fingernail to have his life. Yeah, maybe he's a badass. Cool. I like, what does that mean?
(32:06): See, I don't have the comparison syndrome. I was always told if you're, if you want one thing from the person, you bet. If, if you're not willing to trade a hundred percent for a hundred percent stop thinking about it, that guy's been through some real shit. My question is always is when I listen to this, cuz I'm a little bit more mature now than I was. I ask myself and again, this is not a knock against anybody. You should think about this, about me as well. But when I listen to David Goggins, is he running from something or running towards something? I don't know the answer. I've never even heard him talk about it, but based off of what I hear, cause I know people have demons. He's running every day from something every day.
(32:52): I don't know if that's good or bad, but I'm not running for something I'm running towards something. Yes. I don't have abs like him. Yes. I can't fucking run until my ball sack falls off. I can't do all that shit. I don't want to. I have zero desire to, well mark, you don't like pain, man, man. You're not dedicated. Cool. If that's what you think that's cool. But what I've realized, like I said earlier, we all have a different path. I'm not trying to live someone else's path. I'm fucking forging my own path. I'm in the woods as we speak. And there's a lot of brush everywhere. I got the fucking machete and I'm chopping shit down to forge my own path. I could take other paths. It might be easier sometimes, but it's not my path. I wanna forge my own fucking path. I wanna see what I'm capable of. I don't give a fuck. What you do. Goggins does Priscilla does Wayland? Does they inspire me? I hope I inspire them. I hope I inspire you. You inspire me, but I want to, I wanna work. I wanna fucking chop shit down and forge and drive lead the way. Show people. There's a better life. My family's watching. My team's watching.
(34:18): I'm watching. And when you do this, I truly believe. And I'm, I'm very like I'm sitting here and an amazing time in my life. I don't need or want anything, but I do. I guess I do want, I want more life. I want more impact, but I don't need anything. I'm working on my health at a whole nother level. I'm working on businesses at a whole, like a whole, if you only knew what's going on and I'll be sharing as what's going on, but we have some real shit going on. Life changing growth. It's not all showed up yet, but it will. It's just a matter of time. I do know a lot of my team members listen to these shows and I want you to know I'm at the I'm at the will. I'm at the helm and I am fucking full steam ahead. Not everything's rainbow and unicorns, but we are in this bitch together and we will fucking prevail. We will win. We will win June 29th and June 30th, Cleveland, Ohio. If you're not there, that sucks. But mark, I'll go to the next one. That's the problem. It's always the next one. I'll get to it tomorrow. I'll try next time. What if there's not a next time for me or you?

We're there to support and grow with you.
(36:58): I'll finish with this. As I'm sitting here again, I can't read what's in the book my son wrote yet, cuz I'm still emotional about it. Then I probably will be forever, but something I'm gonna have. My wife, I told her, we were talking about is like, this would be amazing to have the kids do this every year for both of us because you'd see the evolving the evolution. See, we know our kids are watching us, but we do. We know what they're seeing. That's a big difference. They're watching us. But their interpretation of what they see is what I read in the book that mark gave me to say, I was proud is an understatement. It inspired me even more to know that I'm on the right path. They're watching, but who are they watching? Are you trying to be me trying to be Goggins? Trying to be someone else? Are they watching mom and dad, the mom and dad that they know is capable of so much more.
(37:59): We have a duty. If we're aware like we are, if you're listening to the show, you're aware that there's another level and we need to get on it. One thing my son said, and I didn't even know. He knew what it was. He's like if my dad was a car, what kind of car would he be? My son said a Dodge Ram which is funny to me. Cause I will Ram I fucking head throw a wall to accomplish what I need to accomplish. He's watching. Don't be just a lookie Lou and just watching to watch, watch execute.
(38:34): I wanna see you at the it's not lonely at the top. By the way, you just change your friends. You evolve your, your network. It's never lonely at the top cuz there's someone always way higher than you. It's a lie. People tell you it's lonely at the top or on the bottom. They're lonely. They're miserable. The top is amazing. You see, I I'm sitting 200 feet up. I see everything. It's not lonely up here. I'm fucking ecstatic. The breeze is cooler. Trees are moving. I see a Fox. I see a deer running stream is rolling. Doesn't suck. But when you're on the bottom, you only see a small piece of the pie. I might see the stream or a deer. I'm not gonna see it all. Like I see it from here. So what point of view, what angle do you wanna see life at? I prefer it on the top. How about you get to work. It's go time. Thinking about you have an amazing day. What that said.
