Jason Pye and Doug Chat About Alabama's Parole Board
"Board shot down every single case, denying relief to 28 eligible people. Including this man, Michael bettis, he said, he is serving. He has served, hear me, served 12 of 20 year sentence for marijuana possession and distribution. He served 12. He sat at a minimum security work center where they worked him for $2 a day. Turned him down. Now is costing you folks in just to let you know out there. Probably upwards of between 50. I mean, 15 and $30,000 to house him for a year. The older he gets, the more expensive that gets. Okay? This is the part that is really, I think if we emphasize this kind of. Now, I'm not going to go into because again, to get a 12 of 20, it's marijuana possession and distribution. You know how those chargers will work. But there's nothing else here that indicates that the 12 years is not more than sufficient to have him even on supervised probation, whatever it may be. But to get him out. But they turned out all 28 eligible, not a one. I mean, is this the case where honestly the headlines are affecting what should be non attributable boards. I don't know of a better way to put that. I don't want to say partisan because in a way they are, but are political boards. I mean, what would a call something like this? And again, they might come out that there's something you need to, but he wouldn't be now think about this folks. He wouldn't be eligible for parole. If they had to not satisfied everything else in his sentences, taken into his past to get the sentence that he's currently under. It's kind of mind boggling because I think I'm not trying to be mean here. I am from Georgia. But this is Alabama, which is, which is a notoriously tough state when it comes to when it comes to crime. But even Alabama has taken some steps in the right direction when it comes to prison reform. I mean, I remember there was a state I think state senator cam ward there who helped usher through Alabama's prison reforms back in, I don't know, 6, 7, 8 years ago. And that was at the time when DoJ had followed lawsuit over prison conditions in Alabama. But it's unfortunate. And it's frustrating because there had to be one person deserving of some sort of parole who they
Why David Purdue Felt Compelled to Run for Governor or Georgia
"Now he wants to be the governor of Georgia and would like to have him on America first today. Senator David perdue. Welcome to the Salem network. Thank you, Sebastian. Straight to be on America first, man. Thank you. All right, so I just retweeted the tweet that's at the top of your Twitter account. It's a great campaign ad. Tell us right now how the campaign is doing and why serving in the Senate wasn't enough for you. Well, I was never a politician, Sebastian. I was like Donald Trump. I was a business guy for 40 years, but I saw under Barack Obama, the country was handing the wrong direction. And I ran for the Senate to try to help change the direction when Trump got elected. We were able to do just that, created the best economic turnaround in U.S. history. Now, the only reason I got in this go to race Sebastian is because our current governor, cave dean allowed the radical Democrats to steal these elections in Georgia and we lost a majority in the United States Senate and we see the Biden madness now. So I couldn't stand by and watch this guy who can not reunite the party after he is divided the party and win against Stacey Abrams. So I'm running right now to save our state and to make sure Stacey Abrams is never governor of
Andy Posner: Nominal Wage Increases Aren't Helping Rising Costs
"But on the other front there's not much else Andy going in a great direction here We've got the producer price index exploding you know producers and wholesalers paying more for inputs before they produce outputs You've got labor for labor force participation going down And most devastating of all something you've commented on I follow you on social media Is the decreasing power of your earnings Andy you might be getting a nominal raise in your paycheck but your paycheck ain't going as far anymore as it was in the Trump administration No not at all A simple way to think about it is if inflation is 8% so if you had a $100 there it's worth $8 less you're now down to $92 but you got a 5% raise so you go up to $97 Well you're still $3 short So for Biden to be out there talking about how their wages are increasing What he's talking about is nominal wages which is the number on your paycheck which everybody loves to see that get bigger But the problem is if you go to the gas station or you go to the grocery store all of a sudden you realize that even though the number was bigger you're able to buy less And that's really what we're experiencing in America right now And by the way you mentioned the unemployment rate going down Which is good But the unemployment rate will go down automatically if labor participation decreases Nobody has to get shot If there's fewer people in the labor force unemployment will go down We're still not even where we were on the number of jobs We're not where we're going into the pandemic There are still fewer jobs than when the pandemic started So this administration is truly a failure in every respect economically And just about every other respect but we're talking about the economy so limited to that
Elon Musk Tweets Twitter Deal Is on Hold
"I don't know Again I have no inside baseball on this It would be illegal to share if I was profiting off it and I don't I don't have any inside baseball but I can kind of process what's going on being in the tech space being an investor myself bet there's definitely some signs here that lead me in a certain direction Elon has to do if he has banks and financial firms involved in this operation to take over Twitter which he obviously does He's not paying in suitcases full of cash He's not walking up to piragua we're like hey is this suitcase kicking it under the table I mean it's a multi-billion dollar deal There's going to be financial institutions and banks involved and Elon being the richest man in the world Obviously has a legal team and a financial team that does due diligence So I'm guessing here did they go into Twitter Have Twitter open up the books here on this deal Do their financial due diligence And find out some really shady stuff Now he was asking if Elon says listen the deal is on hold until we can verify basically how many Twitter users are real That's what he's saying in the tweet He says it and he phrases it in terms of the percentage of bots but what Elon's really asking in that tweet is are these Twitter users real people Now why is that important Well outside of the obvious you want to believe on a social media platform that you're talking to people socially correct I mean there's no point being on Twitter if it has 239 million users but it really has a million users all the way up 220 plus fake accounts and then you got a couple of spam bots in
Project Veritas: Whistleblower Troubled With the Direction of the FBI
"Here is the FBI whistleblower talking to project veritas after they got a hold of Ashley Biden's diary and had an FBI raids at their homes after that Alleging that this was political And he also says that the vast majority of FBI agents are troubled by the direction the agency is taking Gosh I hope we're going to hear from more whistleblowers than coming up here Check this out Going down to sentinel tags This was chosen by the people who opened up this case They had to specifically list the threat tags that they wanted to identify The intelligence investigation is meant for information That doesn't require that you've done anything wrong with dialog That's the governing dynamic for the FBI One paragraph justification for spying on anyone It's one of the few parts of the entire public document that you see that will be redacted It's truly an incredible amount of power If used wrong What do you hope comes from your endeavor to be here and say all this I would hope that we could end up with a nonpartisan law enforcement agency in this country that's not doing things that seem to be inappropriate Just you doing the job that you're told following those orders is to maintain your paycheck and your pension that gives you the Holocaust So then you end up with somebody who's willing to do something that maybe compromises their ethics Yeah Yeah you're right And thank you to that whistleblower for speaking up
What Does Inflation Say About the State of the Economy?
"I would argue that is worried as I am about the future direction in the economy and whether or not consumers can continue to sustain this level of spending, what's interesting is we actually haven't had the massive downside in the economy that you might think. I mean, I guess I'm in the minority because my kids are like, why haven't we got on vacation? Why? I'm sorry. I don't want to pay two or three times as much for the same hotel room that I stayed in pre COVID that was a sliver of the price it is now. I just, you know, ethically have a problem with that. The price of everything is going up and restaurants are still crowded and it's tough to get airline tickets. I mean, all of this suggests inflation will continue. Because if you have that demand, coupled with these inflationary pressures such as we now have in the economy and there's so many of them. Finally, the fed is doing something about it, but there will be a hangover combined with real supply chain issues, yes, because of the China thing. And of course, the energy challenges because of what's going on in Europe. I mean, this is not going to get too much better. The economy could suffer because people may start to scale back in that spending. Maybe they don't go out to dinner as much. Maybe they're going on vacation as much because at some point it's got to sink in. It's got to sink in that they get less money in their pocket. I'm looking at the numbers here and basically there was nearly a 3% drop 2.6% drop in spending power in terms of what consumers have because it inflation is continuing to rise by this much. And yet, incomes are only going up this much, right? So when you look at the real number, which I realize nobody at The New York Times wants to do because they apparently don't adjust for inflation over there when they look at incomes like, oh, incomes are higher. Now they're not. They're not higher when adjusted for inflation. People actually have less money. And that's why you're seeing, I think, frustration reflected in so many

David McCormick Gives an Update on His Campaign in Pennsylvania
"Where do things stand Hey Mark how are you Thanks for having me You bet Thank you It's a dead sprint you know It's 6 days to go And you can feel it People told me that Pennsylvania sort of finishes late and you can feel there's about 20% of the voters still deciding it can feel people focus I've been driving across the state today I've done 5 or 6 stops And listen there people are mad about the direction of the country They're scared about the American Dream slipping away They're pissed off about inflation and gas prices and fentanyl In our great Tom wall at the Pennsylvania and they're looking for a fighter that's going to go to Washington and push back on this crazy weakness and weakness And so it's a tight race in the polling It looks very close among myself and memorizing Kathy Barnett And the race is going to be decided in the next 6 days So it's exciting and I feel like I'm getting good momentum but it's all about execution
Charlie's Advice for Students Being Alienated for Their Beliefs
"I was wondering if you could give some encouraging words to students who are being alienated by teachers. Their communities and their friends because of their Christian or conservative values. That's a really important question. So students that raise your hand if you think you've been great at differently or treated differently because your beliefs basically every hand goes up. So that's right. Marco says worth it. Yeah, look, I want to say this. So there's a disagreement on the right. And I have a lot of respect for Ben Shapiro, but he has a different answer than I do on this. And I'll kind of say this. So Ben, and this is not precisely your question, but I'll incorporate it. So the question, here's the question, do you lie on your term paper or how you present yourself to your professors to get a good grade? That's a question a lot of people ask, right? It's easier to kind of hide and to not confront things. So Ben says, yes, lie, misrepresent your beliefs, get the good grade and get through college or high school. I see it differently. I do not believe getting a good grade is nearly as important as creating strong people, filled with integrity, willing to fight for truth at all. And so now why am I bringing this up? Because if you wanted to kind of, those of you that are conservative, wanted to have an easier life than just pretend to not be a conservative and just keep your head down and just pretend to be something that you're not and delete your social media. I think there's a lot more important things in life than that. So the word of encouragement is this first something that is true that you don't want to hear and then something that is true that you probably will want to hear. It's never going to stop. You will be harassed called names, demonized, victimized. You will be smeared and slandered. You will lose a lot of your friends. And you'll doubt whether it's all worth it. Sound fun, right? Well, here's the second thing though. You will be a stronger, tougher, more resilient person that will look around at your peers one day while they're worried about whether or not they're being called the right pronouns, and you will be you will have your direction, you'll have resolve, you'll have an intestinal fortitude. You'll have Gusto that will run circles around an increasingly fragile society and you will have what is so lacking in America
Mark Esper Details 'Crazy' Ideas on Trump's World Affairs
"Instead Mark Esper In his silly book where he comes off as just fantastic you know He's just terrific And of course at Trump's expense And so he's on 60 minutes with Nora O'Donnell who we read is getting on thin ice and it probably doesn't get along with some of the staff In her building I'm guessing That's what they say Let's take a little listen so I could cut 18 go It's important to our country It's important to the republic the American people that they understand what was going on It's very consequential period The last year of the Trump administration And to tell the story about things we prevented really bad things dangerous things They could have taken the country in a dark direction What kind of terrible things did you prevent At various times during the certainly the last year of the administration you have folks in The White House are proposing to take military action against Venezuela That's not crazy You may not agree with it But that's not nutty And you have different proposals coming to a president On the circumstances Go ahead Iran It says to strike Iran Well Israel wanted to strike Iran I suppose president Trump was thinking about it too I mean after all they keep threatening to have nuclear weapons and hit us Does this sound crazy to you mister proposed And mister producer
We Can't 'Move On' From the 2020 Election Without Addressing It
"Talking to a guy that he said, Charlie, you know, I don't like the fact that we keep on talking about the 2020 election and we got to move on. So what if they had the mule thing? They paid criminal operatives. It's not a big deal. And I said, okay, I was like, all right, fine. Whatever. And then about ten seconds later, kind of the, you know, we're having a meal and kind of the waiter comes and then he turns me and says, so how do you think we're going to do in November? And I said, I don't know. It depends if we can fix the 2020 election, make sure it doesn't happen again. And he's like, well, we have to move on from the 2020 election. I said, well, what's going to prevent them from trying to put forward another COVID declaration emergency and having ballots going every direction and scooping up those ballots and trafficking them. They're directly related. Now, I think there is a, there's a temptation, there's a urge to want to kind of be above it all, right? Like, oh, okay, they were putting ballots in every direction, and they were trying to undercut our core institutions, but come on, we're better people than this, or something like that. I don't know. I think that there's a phrase that I'm trying to pinpoint here. There is a, there's like a desire to be accepted by wanting to say, oh, everything was perfectly fine at the 2020 election. So I'm
How Will the Next Oklahoma Senator Confront the McGirt Case?
"Great to have you back. Alex is a member of the Nixon seminar. I've known him for a half dozen years. He was chief of staff at the National Security Council served four years in the Trump White House, as I said, a crowded field in Oklahoma, where I've got to ask you about the abortion decision, but I also want to know about the mcgirt decision and whether how much of that matter in this field, Alex grey. Well, I think the mcgurk case is not only the most important issue facing Oklahoma on day to today level. It's the most important issue. I think in determining the type of senator that oklahomans are going to have. And I say that because it's one of those issues where a lot of special interests who have been pushing candidates in the direction of the status quo. And right now the status quo is devastating for Oklahoma. You've got 18,000 cases. Criminal cases that have been pushed from state to federal court. And that means that the federal system is totally overwhelmed and they're unable to prosecute a huge number of cases in practicality that means that rapists and murderers are actually going unpunished and
Richard Baris: Science Has Not Been Kind to the Pro-Choice Movement
"So tell us Richard really quick. What's your polling on the roe versus wade abortion deal? Tell us what you got. Yeah. Yeah, so we're doing this again right now just to get it updated, but Charlie, we've been looking at abortion in detail for a long time. And the truth is simple. Democrats and some of the weaker Republican leaders that follow and believe it, they want Republicans to stay in this constructed box they created for this debate back in the 1990s. The pro life first pro choice designation is very close. We normally have a point or three points in any direction any given month. So maybe it's pro choice last, you know, two months ago, it's pro life that by one or two points the next month, it's very close now. It's not like it was in the late mid to late 90s and then early 2000s. Science I've said this a million times but it's true. Science has not been kind to the pro choice movement. And here's the problem they have. A lot of people, which benefits the Democrats, don't really understand what roe V wade does. So when we ask them about it, the ignorance level is quite high. But we know this. On all of these different state bills, the heartbeat bill, the pain protection act, the 20 weeks, late term abortion bans, the pro choice voter, meaning voters will identify as pro choice. Still support restrictions on abortion. And ironically, you know, the liberal man has been using American women on this issue for years because women who identify as pro choice are much more likely than men who identify as pro choice to support these
Monthly Rents Skyrocket Amid Record Inflation
"Hey everybody, Tyler Charlie Kirk show. What are the new results out of Ohio mean for the midterms? Our Democrats favored to win anything at all, and also a new announcement from turning point, pack, TP pack dot com that is TP PAC dot com, or you guys can contribute some grassroots donations to help America first candidates across the country that's TP PAC dot com. We talk with Tyler Boyer about that and the need to reclaim the America first mantle from the ground up. Email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com, get involved with turning point USA at TP USA dot com or email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Buckle up everybody here. We go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running The White House folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy, his spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job. Building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created turning point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd dot com. I want to lead with this one thing. I have a friend of mine who's a wonderful American from Dallas, whose in real estate, probably one of the top private owners of apartment buildings in the country. And he just said, hey, Charlie, I want you to see these rent inflation crazy numbers. I'm not going to say his name just to, you know, for obvious reasons. But so this is the last 30 movements, okay? So Phoenix, for example, for the last 30, the average prior rent used to be 1325 a month for his and he owns apartment buildings all over Phoenix. Now it's 1693 a month. That means that rent has gone up 27.8% on average in Phoenix. It is last 30 movements. Austin, 23%, San Antonio 21%. Dallas Fort Worth, 18%. North Carolina, 16% Houston 15%. The real inflation rate, I said this the other day, and someone laughed at me, but when they laugh at us, that's how you know we're probably right. I said the real inflation rate is 35%. I said it's right near there. For working people, that's about where it is. If you count gas, you count food, you can't travel. You count all that other stuff. So Andrew and I were talking in the break, he says, I don't know, I don't know, have we peaked too early, Andrew said of Republicans, are we going to be able to sustain this the November? I said, look at these rent numbers. You're trying to tell me people are going to keep the people in charge over this. I don't know, but someone who does know is Richard barris, from the people's pundit, and he's wearing a tie just to make me look bad. Big data polls, Richard barris, Richard. Welcome back to the program. Hey, thanks for having me back. I appreciate it. So a lot to unpack here. Let's start with kind of what happened in Ohio. What does that message send? What is your polling show? How big of a deal is what just happened in Ohio? You know, it's a big deal, Charlie, for the future of the party. The direction of the party, you know, the Trump endorsed candidates outside of JD Vance even did great. There was the first congressional district in Indiana. She won, so, you know, I mean, oh, and by the way, Ohio 9. So that was a race the media definitely was watching and trying to take out, you know, take down the Trump endorsed candidate. He did pull it off and he did incredible in an outside of Toledo, which is where a lot of people thought that Gaborone would do better. You know, so in the end, if you look at where van specifically got his support from, the reason I think a lot of these polls messed up outside of Vance's 100% correct. Outside of Remington, which was pulling for another campaign, they were just wrong. Some of the other public polls didn't really catch Vance's full support because when a pollster does a likely voter model, I suspected this was happening and it did. Those new Trump accounts, they're not really Republicans, Ohio has a lot of them. And they'll tell you, I'm going to vote. I'm likely to vote or I'm certain to vote. But then the pollster will go back and look at vote history and in a primary. If they're not a two out of four voter, meaning they voted in at least two and the last four primaries, they'll get screened out. And because these voters are newly Republican and close primary, they didn't have much vote history and you could see it all over. Mahoning, Youngstown, trumbull, the election day and wood in the northwest, just south of Toledo. That was Trump vote. That is Trump vote. And then Vance did excellent, obviously. In Cleveland, Hamilton county and the suburbs around it. So at the end of the day, it sent a very clear message. The president saw a very strong grip on the Republican Party without a doubt.
How Geotracking by 'True the Vote' Might Have Solved Two Murders
"I talked last week about geo tracking, which is one of the key themes and technologies. That is discussed and deployed in the movie 2000 mules. And in the movie, we talk about the power of geo tracking, the first of all, how it is commonly used in law enforcement. It's used by intelligence, agencies, we all have some experience with it because you travel somewhere, you land, you get a notification from the weather channel about the weather, not where you live, but where you just arrived. And obviously that's because they're tracking your phone. That's how they know where you are. And I mean, the only other option would be someone's following you, which is obviously not the case. Now, to validate geo tracking, truth of vote, the election intelligence organization that we've worked in close partnership with. They are the research foundation for this movie. They had a very, well, kind of a brilliant idea. And that was, and they were having this idea in part because they had presented their findings to the GBI, the GBI is the Georgia bureau of investigation. It's kind of the Georgia version of the FBI. And the GBI was a little bit, they seemed a little bit at sea like, you know, what do we do with this? I mean, not they don't know about the technology, but it is obviously being applied in a new way. And so truth of what thought, well, you know what? Any law enforcement agency uses this kind of technology to solve crimes. What about if we pick a couple of high profile crimes that could have occurred in Atlanta at the very period that we were looking at this geo tracking data? In other words, sometimes between sometime in the weeks and months leading up to the election. That's the body of data we have. What if there were some high profile murders that occurred in the area that we have covered that we have data for? Can we help to solve those murders? I mean, this is an audacious idea because think about it. You have private group doing this. Now we have one case. The case of a young black girl, her name is Sakura Turner, and she was shot in the backing out of a parking lot of a Wendy's. This was during a kind of BLM race riot. And we show in the movie, Greg Phillips is talking about this and he talks about how when you look at the location of the van, the little girl was shot in a van and when you look at the direction and trajectory of the bullet and obviously you look at the time, there are only a handful of cell phone devices that could have, well, that are likely to be the shooter. And remember, the true the vote has those cell phone IDs. Now they don't have the names of those guys, but law enforcement can get the names of those guys like that. How do they do it? Well, they go get a warrant. And then they go to the provider, the cell phone provider and go, who are these guys? And they get their names, and there you go. Those are your 5 suspects. So true to vote then turns this information into the GBI. And guess what? Shortly thereafter, do arrests
Why the Supreme Court Draft Decision Was Approached With Reason
"Court. I've been teaching these cases for 25 years at Chapman university school of law. And I know them backwards and forwards. And so I read the opinion I'm persuaded. It's the correct opinion. I hope it's at least a 6 three decision. I don't know if you've had a chance to read the opinion of what you think of its reasoning. But I find it persuasive. Did you have a chance to read it? I have not you. So with all the stuff we're working on here. But I do have some members of my legal team and we sat down briefly yesterday. And I tried to hit some of those high points. And what they have been able to review so far, they also thought it was very sound reasoning. And not coming from a pro life or pro abortion standpoint, they were looking at it as just pure reasoning and they felt that it was the right direction. So I'm excited to dig in a little deeper and see. But this is unfortunate. I shouldn't even have this opportunity, right? Yes. It is because it was leaked. And the crazy thing is, they're very few people that have access to these opinions.
Sgt. John Mattingly's Message to Officers in the Field
"That. family. We're talking to the author of 12 seconds in the dark, a police officer's firsthand account of Brianna Taylor raid from sergeant Mattingly you mentioned just now that you're just trying to do your job sergeant Mattingly. I just want to ask you one more question before I encourage everybody to read your book. I presume you retired or you've left the force right now. Tell me how did your colleagues who are still in the force, Friends you have in other jurisdictions. I mean, 'cause I'm a civilian, but I served in the British Army, but I've trained thousands, thousands and thousands of law enforcement officers across the country, local state, federal. And I just don't know how you guys go to work anymore. How you put on the badge, strap on the gun, and go to work when the mayor, the local commissioner, doesn't have your back and when you are prayed to political enemies that can ruin the life of your whole family, what is your message to those officers who are still in the bag? Well, it's tough because people say, man, would you do it again? And I say, yes, I would do my career again because I enjoyed it. I loved it. Would I start over now as a new guy doing it? Probably not for the simple fact that, like you said, there's just no support from upper command, especially if you're in a liberal city like lovo is and like all the main cities, you're already behind the 8 ball, just trying to do the right thing and to pull the laws that are on the book. So I would tell them we need you, we have to have you. You're the one holding the line. We appreciate you and I hope you continue to do it because we do need you as America. And that's the whole point in the book. It isn't about John. It isn't about just my situation. This is hopefully a wake-up call to America to say, hey, if we continue to travel down this path, if we keep going the direction we're going and chasing off all the good cops and prosecute in the ones who are just doing their jobs, you're going to get the bottom of the barrel. We're going to be what we were in Detroit in New Orleans in the 80s. And you're going to have corruption to the level you've never seen, and that's not what you want, and that's not what America
J.D. Vance Represents 'The New Right'
"JD represents what we might refer to Charlie as the new right. He is young, he's 37. He's got a background in tech, which has become actually a part of a part of the storyline here. Some of the reporters I've seen from the videos you've been sending to the team, they're asking about his tech background, which I actually think is a massive plus. But he is this new right, this new kind of candidate. You say that you're hearing from the people on the ground, their reaction to a candidate like JD, and you're right, he's pulling ahead, which is phenomenal because of people like you, people like senator hawley, and of course, president Trump's endorsement. But what is the reaction? What are you hearing on the ground? What are you learning being on the ground in Ohio? Yeah, I mean, look, people are really upset about the direction of the country. They're worried about inflation. They're worried about open borders. They're worried about tech oligarchy. But you got to really give it to Ohio voters. They're starting to see through the nonsense and they're realizing that there's only one candidate that's actually going to do something about this, right? And here's the most important thing is that Republican primary voters have had this kind of angst and unease for many different cycles. But it seems as if Republican establishments are really, they're really talented at kind of camouflaging themselves when it matters. And then they go to D.C. and they just kind of become part of this kind of corporate oligarchy you could call it. And so Republican primary voters got to get the rhinos out of our party. They're enthusiastically

You put down the sodas right in and you're walking a little bit more. You delay exercise. So maybe that's what you're doing right now. So how you doing physically skeleton attend? Got a number in there somewhere. Okay. They'll let me ask you how you gonna get to the next number. So if you number five how you're gonna get to a six okay, I don't need you to get from three to attend today. I just need to get from five to six, or even if I'm point five, what can you do right now? Get yourself to that next number next half number. All right. So he got phase like call number. Okay.

Are you are you reading are you reading good things? Are you letting good things come into your head? Member. We're gonna talk about this. It's kind of interesting. Ethan, some he uses a little bit different terminology, but it's really more left, brain right, brain. We think about slow twitch fast twitch in terms of how we do things. But you got two halves of the brain. Okay. You gotta right side, the brain, which is kind of your creative and bore fast side. And then you get your less brain which is your logical right number signing. Little more considerate slower side of your brain Eason's gonna talk a little bit about that with us take. But then, are you feeding both sides? What are you doing to feed? Both sides, your brain. You know. And if you listen to show like this, if you listen to show like this, or you're reading a great book, like human is your business. I tell you something going to feed both as your brain is gonna make you thinking you're going to be having emotional reaction, and you're gonna be doing all this things. I mean, I've got people coming any goes that people are talking in St. I'm a seven maybe eight today. I've got Pam Hussein. I'm an aid because I'm reading your book. That's awesome good for you. But, you know, there's so many other ways you could do that. You could be taking up a musical instrument. You could be learning a foreign language. You know what are you? Consuming? Right. So consumed good things to improve your mental place to numbers of physical mental number. Now, let's talk about your emotional number. Right. And when I mean, emotionally, well, you know, we, we talk about emotional quotients EQ. Sometimes we talk about emotional intelligence EI. Right. So what we what are we really talking about here? We're really talking about how well you're able to control your emotions, first of all right? So do the little things get to you. So skilled went to ten one being awful ten being outstanding. You how well how well are you able to control your emotions? Right. You feel like I mean driver, cut you off. Are you like man, you know, and then you lose it, and then all of a sudden, we've got hand gestures? You know, you know, those hand gestures. I'm talking about right. They're the ones where all of a sudden your fingers are missing. Well, most of them, right? You know what I'm talking about, right? Or, or you this people just can let it go let you know what's okay? You know, I can deal with this. Right. Well, that's the first part being we control your much, but the second part of this whole emotional part is how well how. Oh, well are we able to relate to the emotions of others right Kenya? Tune in to other people's emotions. Right. Because that's so critical. I mean Jim Jim is writing back to Santa J that most of the thing that's a loaded question. I'm not perfect there. Okay. That's all right. You don't have to be perfect better. How how will the tune in to the emotions of others? You can you can you tune in. Can you can you understand like some of you are married? Right. And some of you have dating. Right. You know, can you into the motions of the person, but not just that how about in, in business, folks? Do you know if you can read the emotions in tune into the emotions of potential customer client, right? Do you know do you realize that you're far more likely to make the sale because you're able to tune in and you're able to a moat? So how will you able to do that? And this is all about intention. Right. You've got three numbers right year. Your physical mental emotional. So let's go onto the forever your life, the spiritual. And what I mean by the spirit of what I mean is what? What is that thing that you can't maybe explained by science? You can't explain it through mental activity can explain it by emotions. But there's just something deeper in the world that sets you to a center, centerpiece, a sense of joy didn't say happiness, since joy. What is it that what is that thing? And how well are you doing tapping into that, right? It's not an emotional experience. This is this is an experience outside of all that, that just, you know, that there's something inside of you that just comes to center, some people, it's got some people. It's nature, some people, you know, some people, you know, have spiritual experiences in whole number of ways. Karma, for instance can be spiritual experience for people. Sometimes it's just being out. The nature thing could be really huge thing for a lot of people. So how will you dealing with that side of you because it is a side of you. It's a sign that, that nothing else can explain okay? Then the other three can't explain it says something very unique to you. And I ask you that because it's really important that you understand that we do all have spiritual nature. We all have faith in something. We all believe in something, regardless of what that is right. So if it is God, how's that going, if it's nature? How's that going just went asked me that question? How are you doing in that area? And if you need some help why, you know, I'm reading your things gosh, an e little. Help, you know, well, you know where to call right? You know where to go get that help? So all right. She got four numbers for numbers are like the legs of a table. Say it every week rights legs of a table. And if the tables, and even it's really hard to eat from an uneven table, because that plate wants to slide right off at the same time, if all those legs are low really hard to eat when you're sitting in a normal chair, because it's hard to eat from that same table. And, and so there is the four areas. And so, I hope you're going to do something about them this week so that you could change it to bring up your number, and that leads me to my next guest, you know what? He's the vice president marketing bomb bomb..

"That's got an extra bedroom in the best kitchen in the world. And an I but I'm at a twenty five percent on walkability. We're in the wrong home. Okay. But as in real estate's, great example, there isn't any such thing as a perfect home. Meaning of course, it's going to be a drawback. I can assure you we're going to get that walkability. And we're even going to get that big kitchen. I'm gonna I'm gonna tell you though, we're going to go to two bedrooms, instead of three and I may have to trim some, that's some people. Say that's a drawback on the home. But I like to think Jay when you look at everything that you're considering everything. The, the walkability this the kitchen that what's most important? You overall bang or being and what I'm doing is, I'm helping the client remember like, like, like, Mick. And the boys, one said you don't always get what you want. You're gonna get most of it. Okay. So, so I'm that's the way we make decisions. I don't have to be embarrassed by it. There's no perfect home. There's no perfect job. Nope. Perfect spouse make there's no there's no perfect anything. We have to remind people we're gonna we're gonna help them make a decision based on their total. Listrik right tibia. And that's how we work with the drawback that helps. That's awesome. Okay. Listen. This is rod John Lewis. And we have gone over, we have gone overtime and not only have we gone overtime. He just he just put the puck in the net to win it in overtime. The book is called how to change minds and it is absolutely not standing book. We didn't even get to talking about personality. And, and, you know, the importance then role that, that. Plays in also this process of getting people to change minds. But the truth of the matter is, when you read this book, I'm gonna tell you that he also is gonna talk about, you know, what is personality really have to do with all this, and you're gonna find that, you know, what personality does play a role in how we get people to change minds and were being merciful, to them. Keep that in mind, we're not manipulating them being merciful, to them. We're not being mean to them. We're being merciful, to them by doing this by influencing them, not manipulating them. What a what a great book, I cannot emphasize book enough, because it is that good. I have highlighted this book like crazy. I had folded the corners over so many different sexes book. It's almost like it's one big folded corner is what this book, almost looks like so it's a great book, and rob I want to say for small, thank you for being on the show. We have we have covered the game so much of the gamut of this book. But there's so much more we didn't cover and I think we could have gone out for another hour and a half and. And still not covered fifty percent of the book, because it's the, this book is that deep and that detailed and I enjoyed every bit of it. And so, I went, first of all, thank you for writing it, but it this is a book, that's going to help people, and I don't care. And this is not just for salespeople. And this is, I mean, if you your parent this, this book is valuable to you. If you have parents that are aging, this book is valuable to if you are in a relationship this book is valuable to you. It really is. And I think that was your intent that this wasn't just for sales people. It was for everybody. We have to be careful that we don't write a book for everybody. But I I it's a book that's written for everybody says, I'm not a fails person. I don't wanna be salesperson, but it would be helpful be able to take that idea put somebody else's brain. That's what was written for right? So robby. No, the, the drill here. I, I ask every one of my guests and you're no longer guests your family. But I always ask at the end of the show. If you could give people new direction based on how to change minds, what would be what, what would you say to give people new direction? Let me make sure I. We're, we're at the one yard line. It's time for joss to punch it into the and I will just when you say new direction just to find that when we so I make sure the show, the show's called a new direction, we help people find an direction in their life in their career, or their business or all three. And if you take how to change minds and you could say, you know, I would leave you with this to help you find new direction in, whatever it is that you're doing, when, when it comes to changing minds and help you really grasp onto something that I would really wish that you would take home. What would that be? To me, it would be going to reiterate kind of earlier piece that, that, that twenty five percent. First of all, it would be to have more empathy for people who are in sales. Maybe that isn't your profession. But like I said, there's good ones and bad ones. Please just because you see it on a business card or you, you hear it. Don't, don't assume that every salesperson is, is out for blood. It's, it's not true. But for your yourself for your own, please remember as we said, and I, and I gave you that first building block that when you do this for another individual and, you know, it doesn't have to be aging parents. There's so many different moments in every day that you come face to face with when you invest in the skills needed to change somebody's mind ethically. And honestly for their good and not yours, you perform, one of the greatest gifts you'll ever give somebody and, and don't be ashamed. To ask tougher questions. Be proud. That's awesome is names.

I'm not so sure about hardcover available in audio and, and how about this technology that nobody seems to, like, but a great technology. It's an enhanced e book, if you can believe that meaning it's e book with about twenty six minutes video in there and what I did was I actually for some of these process pieces videotaped role place and have the different techniques coming up and down off the screen. I think it's a tremendous technology. I can just tell you that for some reason, we as a country. Are not jumping on it, but we should there's certain books, who, like this one? I think that really benefit from a little bit more video in their awesome. So, yeah, I it is available at audible audio book through Amazon, by the way or one credit.

"My name is Jay is oh and. When somebody comes back to the show, the are no longer guest. They are family.

Just go to my refrigerator get the drink get the food. Get whatever it is. You want my frigerator just don't ask me anymore because your family, we'll guess what? Rob jollies is back. Oh, Mr. excitement. Yes, he is. He's back. Telling you the shiny dome. The whole thing it's fantastic. I am so freaking excited. I love him. He's not just he's not just a friend. I feel like we've got this weird synergy thing between him and I where we were separated at birth. We didn't know it if you years apart, but we were it was just that I stayed around a little bit longer. So I let him go first. But anyway, that's the way it kinda feels with him. We're just kind of like two brothers from the same mom. But our moms. Don't even know that anyway, the show is gonna be great. Look. We're gonna have a great time and the book is entitled how to change minds for those of you who are watching on Facebook live right now. And thank you, everybody. Who's joining us right now? How to change minds is the book and listened before you go. I'm not into manipulation stop it. Rob would never manipulate anybody. Would you get over yourself? This is about influencing people. People need you to influence them. And before you say, hey, but Jay, I'm not in sales. No shot up, you all we all are in sale. Listen, I have to my wife on me, okay every single day. So I promise you, you're selling somebody something. Sometimes if you have children, you got to sell your children doing homework, right? So we're all on sales, how do we change minds? It's great read. Absolutely great comprehensive, I'm telling you, this is going to be great book, and we're going to enjoy and Rob's going to be a lot of fun to talk to. So we're going to be doing that this this this afternoon and whenever you're listening here on a podcast. We thank you for doing that as well. But let's do what we do every week why. And that is. Check in with you in the four areas of your life. You know how I feel and I believe this. I'm convicted of it, and that is that we are four-part part, people, we are physical people. We are mental people. We are emotional people, and we are spiritual people, and, and we are all in different places in our life, and all four of those areas. So I want to check in for those areas with you right now. So on a scale of went to ten one being miserable ten being couldn't be any better. All right. Where are you at physically today? Right now, wherever you're listening to me right now. I'm just asking you out there, where are you at with that, right? Feeling right? You feel pretty good about that. Like maybe a five you feel pretty good, maybe been under the weather. You know, maybe it's a four three. Maybe you know, you know, I haven't been doing what I should be doing to take care of my body. Right. And so you're maybe that makes you a four. Right. Maybe you're listening to me right now as you're driving in the car and your your hand your hand right now. Your right. Hand is in that bag of chips. Get it out of there right now. Okay. Whatever it is. Where are you right now on that scale of went to ten and then I gotta ask you, what are you going to do about it? Right. What are you gonna do? What are you gonna change? What is it going to take you to change? What can you do right now? Can you take that bag of chips, right? Out the window. Don't do that. Not if you're driving. Don't don't do that. That would be the wrong thing to do. But you know what? I mean right. Can you eat a little better? Can you put the fork down? Can we cut a few things out? Right. Can we maybe do little more exercise take a walk? Maybe walk your dog a little bit more often you know what your Dogwood. Thank you. If you just walking a little or a little bit more frequently what you gotta do to change that physically. All right. You got that number awesome. So how about mentally where you at on that scale? Same scale one to ten one being awful ten being outstanding. Where are you at mentally and what do I mean by that? What do you feed your brain? Right. With what is what is going into your brain right now? What do you what are you doing to exercise that right side of your brain, which is that, that whole create aside, or that left side of your brain, which is that whole logical side? You what are you doing to? Feed the how feeding both sides of that brain. Right. And there's so many ways to do that. I mean reading a great rate watching the show listening to this show is a great way for you to exercise your brain because I have such a mazing guests like rob jobless and his book, how to change minds which, by the way, we're gonna talk about, but that feeds, both sides you because you're gonna have to creatively put the pieces together, you're going to get some logic. And it's just an amazing way to do that. So I still wanna ten where you at mentally. Right. And then what are you going to do? What can you change? You know, 'cause you could do some simple things reading one, but maybe take up an instrument that, that exercise, both have your brain may. Maybe it's learning a foreign language that exercise is both have both halves your brain as well. So you can find things to exercise your brain, and you're never too old to do that. Okay. You are never too old to exercise your brain never, ever ever, as well as your body. All right. She got two numbers. Let's go onto the motion side. Where are you at emotionally? Okay. On a scale one to ten one being miserable ten being outstanding. Where are you at emotionally right now? What do I mean by that we talked about emotional telling and emotional quotient, and things like that? What we are really saying is how well are you able to control your motions that the little things don't get to you? Right. That's the first part of it. Right. Are you able to keep your motions and check? All right. Or the little things really getting to you and they need to ask yourself, why that is because, you know, motions are about intentional being intentional about everything that we do, because you have choice, emotionally over everything that you, do you understand that. Right. Right. I know it's not always easy. But the fact of the matter is you choose how you're going to react emotionally. And, and I'm telling you, that because some people don't believe that they have a choice, but you do. Right. The other part of this emotional intelligence, emotional quotient, piece is also how well are you able to relate to the emotions of others? And sometimes, you know what that? Is required. It's required. It's this thing it's really hard. It's called listening, right? Are you really in? Tune to listening to the emotions of others. When they speak to you. When you write to you, or you misinterpreting those emotions, because you're not really into with them all those things combined are really that emotional element. So on that scale of went to ten where are you at emotionally, and then I'm gonna ask you the same question. What can you do right now to change that? Okay. And finally, the fourth the fourth area of your life, that I believe is just as important as your spiritual area. Right. And, and Janelle. What do you mean spiritual? When I think it means is, I think it means that it's all the things that the other three areas cannot explain. That's what I think that means and that somehow centers, you and get you re back to a place where you feel that there's a sense of peace, and a sense of joy and say, happiness, right, and in say satisfaction, but something that centers you back to center and it's things that you can't explain and for. Some people it is God. And for some people, it's not some people it's nature. Maybe it's karma. Maybe it's something else that you believe in that gets you back to center. But that makes you feel whole that is what I mean about the spiritual area of your life. And if it is God, you know what I ask you all the time. It's how's that relationship going? Right. And if that's it is right. That's because it's that important, right? We've got these four numbers now. Right. You got a physical, number mental number, I motioned number spiritual number think of it as the four legs of table, if the legs are uneven, it's pretty hard off that table. But the legs are too low while you're sitting in a normal chair. It's also very difficult to do. Right. So try to bring them up all the same time evenly as much as you can, and then work on them every single day to bring those numbers up and you don't have to get from three to ten just get from three to three point five that's gonna make your life so much better. Because member we always can be growing, and I wanna see you grow every air of your life. And one of the ways that we do that. And this show called a new direction. Is we get to interview some of the best off authors from all over the world and Rajaa my friend, and author has got this book entitled how to change minds and I am going to tell you something.

You got okay great. There's your first number right? All right. So let's look at mentally, how are we doing mentally today on that same scale one being miserable ten being outstanding? What's your number mentally? And what do I mean by that? Well, I mean, what are you feeding your mind, right? We got two halves of this brain. Right. There's the right side. That's this creative side. And then there's less side. That's this logical side. What are you feeding your brain? Right. What are you doing to feed it to mentally, get yourself growing and going? Right. So like if you listen to the show, you know, I interview bestselling authors and some of the most outstanding people in the world. Right. This is a good show for you to listen to because it's going to feed your brain. It's gonna feed. Both sides. It's going to kind of engage that logical side. It's going to gauge a creative side. How can I apply this? Right. But you can do other things like maybe take up an instrument or learn a new language, things that can engage sides of your brain variety. Things. Right. So what are you doing? What do you got to change? What's that number? What do you got to change to make that? Number go higher. Right. You got that we got two numbers. Right. We've got physical number of mental number right Thirdly. How you doing emotionally? So often we call them motions emotional tells right skilled when to ten one being miserable ten being outstanding. How you doing mostly the little things getting to you, right? Did there are maybe you're able to just really you're a really good place. And the little things aren't bothering you. Right. That's part of that emotional quotient motion, telling the other part of this emotional part of Hugh, who you are, is, how will you able to relate to the emotions of others? Can you listen long enough to really understand their emotions? Right. What do you need to prove that, what do you need to improve your motion stability? What do you need to improve yourself because let's be honest Vokes emotions of a choice. Right. Anybody who says to you? Well, they caused me to feel this way. No, no, no, no, no, no. You do not want to be owned by people that way, you're in control of your emotions. So what can you do to be more in control of those emotions? So that regardless of what life throws at you. You could still come out positive. All right. So you got three numbers now. Right. You got physical number mental number emotional number, and then finally spiritual which spiritual number scale of one to ten one being miserable. Ten being outstanding. Which are spiritual number today. Rainy, go. We'll j what he my spiritual. Yeah. I, I don't believe in God. Okay. Well, maybe you believe that nature centers you. Maybe you believe that karma is the thing that you believe in it could be a variety. Maybe it doesn't matter. It could be a number of things. But what is that thing that brings you back to the center, we're gonna hear we're gonna hear John talking about the center point. And, and we're going here. About that, right? Because it's a it's a really key part of his of what he does. But what centers you spiritually? Right. What, what brings you back to center? Right. And if it has got how's that going for you? All right. I just asked that. What's that? That's number for you. See got four numbers. Right. You got to physical number mental number Moshel number spiritual number think of those as the forelegs of table. And if you're trying to eat on table, and they're uneven makes it kinda hard to keep plate on the table. Doesn't it? But also, if they're all too low, right? It also means that if you're sitting normal chair at also makes things difficulty. So what we want to do in our life as we wanna be balanced. We went to bring all those things up. Right. And we want to bring them up to the right height. And this leads me to my next guest. I am so excited. I I just giddy. I know I shouldn't be getting, but I'm giddy. All right. His name is John fully.

"You say the game is good old Monday morning coffee, cold. Live is Don one on to need another chance to everyone and welcome to new direction. It's Jay and a whole, man. See do you know what I love about doing this show? Okay. Because I tell you every week, right? It's it's gonna be great show. And it is going to be great show because I got Ralph Peterson again. Okay. First of all Ralph Peterson was great remembered the book, we did was congratulations. Now get over yourself. And Ralph was fantastic. And his book was great. And it was absolutely outstanding. He's got a new new book that I guess it's called me. Call it new. He did this book. But then he's rewritten. It it's called managing when no one wants to work. Okay. Listen consultants managers business owner CEO's you're going to want to tune into this. Because how many of you have ever experienced ever experienced a time when you had employees who didn't want to work. Oh that many of you good for you. So we're going to talk to him today. About the book the book is going to be outstanding managing when no one wants to work, and we're gonna have a lot of fun with him. Because as you know about Ralph is Ralph is a absolute fun guy. And he such a wealth of knowledge has so much experience. I mean because he's been managing since he's been sixteen years old even for about eight minutes. So I mean, he's been an awesome. So. As you can hear the background. It's awesome. But let's do what we do every week. Let's check in with you in the four areas of your life. You know, I believe that we are four people. I believe that we're physical people mental people emotional people in spiritual people. And so I want to check in with you and see where you're at right now today and in wherever you're listening to us on the podcast. And if you're watching us live, thank you for doing that. So physically unskilled went to ten one being miserable ten being outstanding. Where would you put yourself physically right now? Would you say your three four five seven eight nine feeling physically? Right. And when I'm asking you that question, I'm asking about a variety things. And it's not just asking you about, you know, had the flu I'm asking you about, you know, are you taking care of your body? And you take care of yourself. I'm gonna tell you something about Ralph. And I don't think he minds me saying this, but Ralph was way, overweight, and he worked on himself and changed himself. And he's a guy who is an inspiration. I think for everyone that you can change. Physically you can change yourself. You could change your body physically. If you if you want to and so, you know, he's runs these like five ks and runs these other types of marathon things, I think that's ridiculous. But that's what he does. Because I'd rather be in the gym on a cycle. But he likes to be out there doing it. And he's changes Bonnie, and he's changed the way he ate and and what he puts into his body. And someone ask you on a scale of went to ten where are you at? And then not only. Whereas is that number though, what can you do to get to the next number above where you're at right now? What is it that you need to change? I mean, do you need to exercise you need to watch? What you're eating right chances are combination of both matter of fact, I heard somebody say to me the day, you know, what Avs are made at the dinner table. And I thought that was you know, what you're right because ever let people you know, you're gonna lose weight in the gym. Actually, you're gonna probably put on weight in the gym. But you have to change your eating habits as well. So what are you going to do today to get to that next number? All right. You got that number. Great. So how about mentally same scale one to ten one msrb? Ten outstanding. Where yet mentally and what I mean by that is where are you at in terms of feeding your brain to things that your brain needs to be fed in order to grow right because one thing about our brain is we can always learn something new, and we have to sides our brain, right? We have a right side, which is more of a creative site, and we have a left side. That's our logical side. And what are you? What are you consuming to feed your brain, right? Because so much that we consume today on TV is mindless, right? You ready said mind less meaning that it's not really it's not really helping your brain. At all. It's not really doing anything to help you grow. Mentally, this show is show where I interview, you know, authors bestselling authors like Ralph, and I interview them, and then we break it down. And we try to find ways to help you do whatever you do better. Whether it's something your life, your career, your business, and we're feeding you and the reason why I chose this is because I wanted to feed that side of your both sides of your brain, creatively and logically. But you do that a number ways, you know, you can read books. On your own. You can take a musical instrument which requires both sides, your brain or learn a new foreign language. So where's that number for you in terms of mentally where where are you at with that on the scale? Are you a four how do you get to a five? What are you gonna do? What are you gonna change? You know, maybe it's turning off the TV and picking up a book that might be great change for you. All right. You got two numbers. Third number is the emotional part. And Ralph talked about his emotional quotient, sometimes isn't always the highest needs to be. He's talked about in the book. But when things is none of our social koshen our motion intelligence may not be as high especially when we're doing texting. And we're you know, we're on we're texting e-mailing. Sometimes we don't think about our motions in how people interpret arm oceans, that's all part of a motion intelligence, right? And it's also about how you take things personally. My wife gave me something really great the other day. She she she gave me a Q tip. And you know what? Q tip means means quit taking it. Personally. And I would just really suggest you, you know, what why don't you keep q tip in your pocket? All right because it's so easy for us to take things personally. And every time that you feel like you need to get up set with somebody pulled cute about quit taking it personally might be helpful helpful way for you to control your temper or getting upset so easily. You know, the other part of emotional tells is also how well you able to relate to the emotions of others. And so I'm gonna ask you, right? And that's guilt. Went to ten one being miserable. Ten being standing. How're you doing emotionally? Right. And then what can you do to change it because part of that change? And I'm gonna just give you helpful head part of changes just being intentional about what you do with your emotions. Okay. And then the final area that I always talk about is the spiritual area on the scale of scale of one to ten when being miserable ten being outstanding where you at spiritually. And what do I mean by that? Well, we believe in something we have faith in something when you have something that drives you in the morning that feels that you gives you purpose. Whether that's God. Or you feel that your centered via nature some people. I know believe that you know, they get on a bike ride and that just centers them or some people run, and they feel that the that that helps sent gets them back to center some people work out some people believe in karma. Some people believe in a whole variety of things. What is it that centers you and get you back in that spiritual area to and if it is got how's that going? And if it's nature has echoing whatever it may be. So what is that number for you? And then what do you need to do to improve it, or what do you need to do to change it? And what can you do right now? So you have four numbers you've got a physical number. You've got a mental number emotional number in a spiritual number think those the four legs of table. And if you think about that if it's uneven the tables uneven because the legs are even it's hard to eat on a table. That's even but also at the same time for those areas are low and you're sitting in a normal chair. Also makes it very difficult to eat as well. And we want you to eat healthily in all areas of your life. So do what you gotta do to bring your table up. And that leads me to my neck. Guest. And and it is Ralph Peterson and reputation as guest of the show. He's a friend of the show. He's not just guessed the show. He's a friend of this show. He is literally the manager's manager. And by the way, he doesn't just he's a consultant. He's a manager. He is speaks all over the place. He's in demand. I and here's the thing about why he's such man because he doesn't work in a field. That's very easy. Okay. He worked in the housekeeping industry. Okay. Imagine how hard it is to manage people who don't want to do housekeeping in hospitals or convalescent centers or things like that. It's tough job. Well, Ralph has managed to manage it. And he's awesome. And he's brought to us today by inland.

Are you taking care of yourself you eating right? Are you doing the things that you need to do take care of yourself physically? So that you could be the best that you could be physically. Right.

What do you need to do? So wherever you're feeling right now, physically what do you what do you think you need to do? What can you change right now? What can you change worse? The new direction for you that you can find that. You can change yourself physically. All right. You got that? I number awesome. Second number, right? Let's talk about where you out skilled one to ten one being miserable, tending great. Where are you at mentally? Meaning what do you feeding your brain? I am so fortunate that I get to do what I do. And that as I get to read forty to forty five books year right to fill my brain. And learn it because you know, you can costly be learning and Claudette has written a great book, you know, this cultural brilliance Blerk has been a great book because it's really expand. My thoughts. It's reminding me of some things forgotten about otms razor, right whoever talks about that. Well caught at did. She talked about it, which was awesome. So what are you feeding your brain? Right. And there's two sides of her brain, we have we have that left side, which is that logical side, and we have the right side, which is the more creative side. And when I was teaching psychology classes in colleges and universities. You know, we have a tendency to forget that we need to feed both sides of our brain. And that both sides are equally important. You can't you can't just emphasize one without the other. And so what are you doing to exercise your whole brain, not just a part of it? Yeah. We have a corpus callosum that connects those two halves, and that's a whole nother story. But what are you doing to featuring? All right. And you got a scale one to ten or you're doing well, are you reading maybe you taking up a new class? Maybe you're taking up an instrument, maybe taking a foreign language, whatever what are you doing? All right. And how can you improve? All right. Those are the two numbers that you have right third number is emotionally. Where are you out on a scale of went to ten emotionally right now? Meaning. What is your emotional intelligence your motion quotient, right? And when I mean by that is do the little things in life to tend to send you over the edge quickly. Right. Are you able to control your emotions are you able to relate to other people's emotions? Are you really listening to other people's emotions and not just sympathizing with them? But really truly empathizing with them. Meaning putting yourself in their shoes that you can really understand someone else's emotions and and at the same time being able to control yourself right because we have choices emotionally, right? The the higher emotional intelligence. The Jairo motion quotient the better able we are to control our own emotions. We have choices. Life's circumstances. Do not have to make us act in a particular way. Emotionally. We can we can't control that if we Jews too. So were you out in that scale went to ten emotionally perfect? All right. So you got three numbers finally the fourth number, right? Where you at spiritually. And you say to me, what do you mean by that? Well, what I mean is. What centers you right, and that talking about being happy and that talking about I'm talking about what brings you back to center. What helps you come to peace with helps you resolve things that science can't explain what helps you do that? Right. Is that nature is at karma. Is it God? And if it and should it be God. How's that going for you? Right. And or, you know, house nature for that matter or house karma going for yet. Right. But something that I know because we all believe in something. I promise you, do you. We all believe we have faith in something that we believe that that gives us some sort of sense of peace, and how are you doing in that area? So you've got four numbers, right? You've got the physical number of the mental number the emotional number in the spiritual number and those four numbers like the legs of table. And you're trying to eat off of the table. If uneven it's very hard eat of an even table. But if they're too low, it's also hard to eat. So the goal is to raise each leg. Little by little. So that you get the table to the right level. I hope you'll do that. Well, our next guest. Who by the way is brought to you by in line business brokers and advisors, and they have been our sponsor for so long.

She also teaches a course on culture and communication at Northeastern University, and is the author of the Amazon bestselling book, cultural brilliant. It's DNA organizational experience. Please get this and laze gentlemen, would you? Please welcome claw debt rally caught at welcome to a new direction. Oh, thanks J. Thanks for that introduction really to our conversation. So culture, I've said it before I will say it again, you have one whether you know, it or not you're singing, my song, absolutely. They are always in a culture at all times. Whether we know it or not. It does Volve. Does it not? I mean, you put a group of people together all of a sudden a culture revolves. And when I when I wrote my first book got social meteorology, I treated each social media platform when I was studying them from a psychological perspective. I was studying them as a culture because I said Facebook didn't design the Facebook culture, the people who used Facebook had made that culture revolve, and the business that you're in whatever business that you are you may have not set out to create the culture you're currently in. But you've created a culture. Right. Yeah. You absolutely have you whether you're aware of it or not and whether it was intentional unintentional. We are always in a culture at all times. It's one thing I giving example to organizations or individuals say think about your family of origin, and whether you like that family or not we all understood the culture of our family of origin. We understand all the unspoken norms. Right can rules higher supposed to be h-have who's going to get upset about what and organizational culture, similar in the sense that you're gonna have a set of norms for via that evolve. And why does culture go wrong? I culture goes wrong. I think the number one reason is that folks aren't aren't thinking about it. Sometimes right decades past one really sitting around thinking about the organizational culture, most of the top. So as you said it did evolve. And so sometimes didn't have all in ways that we're functional or supportive people or the business. So I think that's one piece of it. And the other piece of it is or and we're seeing more and more and more of this is coming to light organizations tolerate behavior. That's unacceptable. We're seeing more of that in the news where it's not being tolerant anymore, which is really crate. But even things like, tolerating bullies, tolerating people who are disrespectful things like that over time really wrote a culture. So how do you know, if how would you know, if you're in a bad culture? There are a few different ways. But some of the signs that I that have been pretty consistent for me. One would be certainly the the bullying disrespectful environment. Another one is if you're in a culture and notice or maybe as leader. So you're you're part of some of what's happening from the top down perspective that people are there's a result. Revolving people people are leaving all the time. And then you have to rehire that's assigned something not going on. Well, with your culture, another one is in this. This one's often surprising to people, but if you are leader or you're not a leader in the organization, but will you notice and and experiences the leaders will say, oh, you'll you have this new idea. Okay. Great. Can you give us information about it? Can you give us some data that sounds really reasonable, except if repetitively those leaders do nothing that information or data and people get incredibly frustrated in disengage? So there's a lot of disengagement a lot of frustration a lot of mistrust. Or blame or any of the things. I already mentioned those are signs that something's probably going on with your culture that you need to look at. We're talking with called at rally author of the book, a cultural brilliance, the DNA of organizational excellence, by the way, if you go to cultural, brilliant dot com. You can learn more about Claudette her team. And what they do they they are amazing. I've read through I think I think almost all the website as well as this entire book. And you'll love what they do there. It's such a unique approach, and I was blown away by everything about cultural brilliance, and what Claudette is doing there. So I really encourage you to cultural brilliance dot com to just get some more information club at one of the one of the things that as I was reading this book is I was like, okay. You know, you read a book, and you go, okay? She's gonna lay out she you come right out and say, you know, what don't don't hire me just read my book, try to read my book, and I will give you the step by step processes. And I I quickly said, oh, well, this'll be great. I'm going to start with being authentic, and then I'm gonna work my way into. Great everything, and I got through off being thank and was getting ready to do, you know, the antigen, and I went, and I went, oh, this is way need. Need?

"G dot com, and you can get more information. And as always we are grateful to our sponsors and end lie. Business brokers for bringing us Gretchen and a new direction. So Gretchen one of the things I noted in the book, and we talk about traits, right? Which I which by the way, I loved this idea of you know, how we ask those questions. Right. I loved one of the things that you said is, you know, what would you tell people about why you work at your company. Ultimately, right is one of the questions. Right. We try to get rates, and I loved that whole idea of how we go about trying to access those traits. But one of the things that I particularly loved about when we talk about traits is that they're they're neither good or bad. They're neither writing their new neutral traits are in neutral, sp- expend one more time about talking about that neutrality of traits. Very court to how we talk about culture, every treat has let's go back to that example. I gave about the Baltimore company about how that organization was leader lead. Right like because it was leader lead. There was a kind of coherence to what people felt like they should be doing. You know at the end of the day. They would ask him, right? Like, there was a a sort of clarity. He was a really inspiring guy. You know, there was a sort of spiritual center to that company, but leader, led of course, has negative ramifications as well or not even let's say negative J. Let's say there are ways that gets in the way of the business, right? Like, you're not growing up as many leaders because people who see themselves in that role might move on. You're not on encouraging the kind of decision making the gets pushed down that sometimes can lead to innovation. So you're you have positive and negative ramifications weighs about supporting you. You and ways that that's probably going to be things to watch out for things that can get in the way, and it's really important to be able to have that dialogue in an open way within an organization because much like an NBA TI test may much like if Jay if you and I were on a team, and we did our Myers Briggs assessments, and we defined you know, you as an extrovert in me as an introvert we could find you are other. I am an ENT. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. That makes sense to me. I'm actually an extrovert too. But let's call. Let's call it in calling introvert like we have conversations when something comes up. We're like, oh, it gives us a non evaluative way to talk about things that are happening ground our conversation in a way that isn't like, you're right. And I'm wrong. It gives us a way to say. These are core traits, which are neither good nor bad. That's what we propose about traits right openly. We're not proposing them in sort of these four precise. Dimensions were kind of saying. Your core traits are thumbprints. They're like a fingerprint of what your organization is. You know, and they've sort of built up over time and supported the way that you do business for reason and understanding what those trae tar and getting people to kind of agreem- them. And starting from them is really core to having a conversation about culture that is grounded in who are we what can we do better rather than grounded in that? Hand wavy the culture's getting way moments that I talked about in the beginning. You know, it's the very beginning of. Yeah. Okay. Here's what we are. Here's what we do. Well, let's try to do a little more of that. We're talking with Gretchen Anderson co author of the book that critical few outstanding book, by the way. For those of you who are listening on podcast. You don't know everything that's going on. We do this show. Also Facebook live and we've been having some issues Facebook live. So it's been in and out. So I wanna apologize to all these people who have been trying to watch us Facebook live and it keeps shutting off. I just want to let you know. I don't know. What that is. It's a Facebook issue. It's not our issue because we are doing just fine online. So can't explain it. So I just want apologize to you. But the book is at Tyler the critical few and we're talking about this order. I I guess I want to call it an order procedure of how you work and operate and what I loved about this book as a consultant and coach to businesses myself to me, you gave me a handbook. So, you know, I I I love this because this is just a handbook for me of how to approach clients, and because for even for me, my first jump would be to jump right into behavioral change. Right. What are they what do we want to change? Right. That's that's my natural as a psychological. Professional that is my bent immediately is to look at. Okay. What are the what are the reinforces that we can use to encourage a change in behavior? And what do we have available to us? But we were started with traits. We've identified those traits, then, you know, part of your whole idea of a critical few is that you could you could potentially come up with, you know, hundreds if company, but you have to you have to be able to get these down to a critical few traits, right?

So what is your what you what is your physical number today? One's bad tenth grade. All right. You got that number. Okay. Good. All right. Let's talk about mentally where you out skill went to ten sim scale once visible tens outstanding where you mentally. And when I mean by that is what do you feeding your mind? What's going into your mind? What are you doing to exercise both halves of your brain? Right. The left side of your brain is logical. The right side of your brain is creative. What are you doing to feed that? Right. What are you reading? What are you watching? What are you learning? What are you doing to actually feed your brain? Right. Are you doing that regularly? Is it something that you're doing on a regular basis are you growing right because that's the key? The key is that you constantly growing. Because if you're growing your dying because we never stay static things pass us by. So what's that number? You got we got numbers. We've got a physical number mental number. Okay. Stuck in emotionally safe scale one being miserable. Ten being awesome. Where you got emotionally. What I mean by that is what's your emotional intelligence? Quotient right now. Right. Like do the little things tick you off. Are you does life get and bother you? And all of a sudden emotionally, you're just thrown at a loss. And you're not handling yourself emotionally. How are you emotionally right now? And by the way, motion motion intelligence than your motion. Also is how well are you able to relate to other people's emotions right because let's be honest with you when you're when you're able to relate to other people's emotions, you're going to be far more successful in every Arab your life. Whether that's in your career, or your or your business or in your personal life because we all wanna be understood. So where are you at emotionally today? We got three numbers right, physical, mental and emotional. And then then finally the fourth area where you at spiritually right and people go explain to me spiritually right because people will say to me, I don't believe in God. But you are spiritual being or you have faith in something you believe in something right e-. Even if you say science, right? You believe that science has on the answers that's still face. Eighth? Okay. But I don't know if that gives you a sense of joy or a sense of peace or sense of calmness. Generally, we believe in something that triggers us that does that. And it could be karma could be nature. It could be a variety of things, and it could be. Okay. And if it is God, I always ask people to same question every week. And that is if God is your source than how are you doing in that relationship? How is that going for you? Right. How would you say that is on a skill went to ten so you've got four numbers your physical, mental, emotional spiritual numbers. So now, you gotta think of those four numbers as the legs of table, right? If they're uneven it's going to be pretty hard to eat even table, and if they're too low, and you're sitting in a normal chair, it's going to be very hard to eat of a low of a low table. So what are you going to do to improve that? And when I say improve these areas of your life. I'm not asking you to get to attend. If you are a three in any one of those areas. What are you going to do to get to a four? If you are a six, what can you do to to a seven, and if you're a nine what can you do to get to it? Then what do you need to change about you in any areas of your life to get you to the next level? Right. And it doesn't have to necessarily be. Something big it can be something as simple if it's a physical thing. So you're physically four it could be that you all need to do is just get a little more exercise. Maybe take an extra walk. Right. Maybe just get into the gym. Maybe just do get on the treadmill for few extra minutes. Maybe putting down the fork, maybe stop eating sweets. It doesn't have to be a huge thing. It just needs to be a change that's in the right direction and speaking of a right direction and a new direction. I can't tell you how excited I am about our next guest because rake har- is Cleveland's renaissance guy. I mean renaissance guy I mean renaissance guy, so he's he's got the right car show. Right.

"I don't even know what I'm passionate about. Right. And I tell people, you know, what you you probably don't because I think most people are afraid. What their passions really are many young lady? And she's in her twenties, and I met this young lady, and she asked me to meet help her with some career advice. And so I met with her, and I asked her, you know, about what her future was and what she went. I have any passions. And she said, yeah, you know, but you know, it's silly. Well, what do you mean? It's silly. Remember, she's a twenty something right? Because I have I do have a passionate. I promise you. It's not gonna be silly. And she said, I just want to be a mom. I'm so passionate about being a mom. And I thought wow. And I looked at her. I said how could that be? Why would you be embarrassed about being passionate about wanting to be a mom? Would have we done into science that a twenty something year old lady who's passionate about wanting to be a mom? What have we done that that that she felt uncomfortable or embarrassed that she couldn't come right out and say, my passion is I just want to be on. And only be great mom. Wow. Matter of fact, I told her I said that's nothing to be embarrassed about that's nothing to be ashamed of fact, how honorable is that I said, you wanna be a mom. I said, I think it's great. I said what keeping of course, you know. I mean, I know how being a mom works. Right. I mean, I get it, you know, babies and things like that. But I mean, you know, she wa- she said, I'm just not in a place where I feel like we're ready. You know to be a mom and she said, but it's really what I wanna do. And I thought what a cool life, and you know, that this is what she wanted. And so some people are embarrassed about with their past about. Hey, Nikki, how are you? And she says, my passion is about being the best mom, I can be to my two kids when who's a college at UNC Wilmington. Cool. You know, what I think I think sometimes Lisa says? I became passionate about historical interpretation. Do if you told me this is Lisa Rotella talking. If you told me three years ago that I'd have been doing this. I wouldn't have believed you see this is where it comes. I'm telling you this is where it comes from. It comes out of nowhere. You don't eat some of you don't even know what you really passionate about until you stumble on it. I feel like it's like a jewel that you that we stumbled I have to because I got to tell you something if you told me that I was going to be passionate about writing books. I would have said to you forget it. I was told I was the worst writer in the world through high school college and grad school. Okay. I also if you told me that I would be passionate about doing this radio slash podcast and reading a book every week. I said, oh, no, no. It's too much work. I am not doing that wrong with high. So sometimes sometimes we don't even know what we're passionate about. And I think that's why love about Lisa is. Sometimes we don't even. N-no what our passions are. Right. And and we just we think we know what our passions are. But we don't but win we align our talents and our personality and our passions. And they all come into this need alignment our purpose. Really drops out of all that. Because then we start to see how it is what we do really impacts other people, right? And and it's it's it's pretty darn amazing. Right. I I've a friend and. Who's a chef and their their their purpose is to really give people an experience a culinary experience. Because they know that their food makes people feel good great purpose, and who doesn't want great food. Right. We all do right? Hey, when the hair so I mean, when we when we start when we start thinking about purpose, right? It doesn't have to be this. Oh, you know, the clouds opened up the angels are singing, and you know that. Oh, there it is. Right. You know, here's the holy grail. You know, I've seen it right now. No, no, no, no, no. It's win your talents and your personality and your passions come into alignment, and you recognize that you're not just doing this for you. But that you're doing whatever it is that you do for other people, and it makes them, and it makes them better on some level. And that you that you that you enjoy. And that that what happens is, you know, the whole idea like I think about my cousin who is she says, I'm fifty two which you don't look fifty two sweetheart you, really don't. But here she is. She's she's found something that she's passionate about and and and she's enjoying it. And she's able to pass along that to other people and they're able to enjoy together. So I mean, it's it's really cool. Right. When we discover what they are. So if you haven't found your passion yet, we haven't found your purpose, right? Let me just get a couple of things one. Take a look at your talents your natural given talents. Right that you have take a look at your personality. If you get those two things in line. All right, then you're passionate teams to kind of flowed out of that. And then from your passion. What happens is your purpose becomes more clear. Right. That make sense. Okay. Listen, if you were to Ning in today hoping to hear Matt loon who who illustrated he was the youngest illustrator ever for. The simpsons. He wrote this book called the best story wins. He had a unscheduled surgery. I called him while he was in bed, and he just could not do the shop. So we're going to reschedule him for a later date. But I promise you get to today. But I've been talking about little bits of pieces from the book, and I've been talking about trying to help you find your purpose, and your passion, and some of this was actually kind of lead me through Matt's book and and doing that. So so today, folks, listen, I know that today is an awkward date for some people. This is not a day that everybody celebrates is. Valentine's Day is not a day that the surly happy day for everybody. And so I ask you to be sensitive to those people today because what we often forget is that. For some people. This is the first this is the first time to experience a holiday without. You know, a spouse or loved one that they would spend the time with or somebody's gone through a divorce or the separated or. Maybe somebody is you know, single, and they don't understand why they're single, but they still are. And so they see every one of us who maybe are trying to enjoy join this day, and it just reminds them of their own hurt and pain. And so I would just caution. You write that I want you to enjoy it because I'm going to enjoy it too. But at the same time be sensitive to the people around you. All right, because you just don't know what other people going through, you don't you don't know other people's pain. All right, and sometimes people can put on a big, huge smile and still be in pain. So I'm just asking you today and every day, right? Don't assume that you know, right? And let's try to be a little less selfish about saying this is what I'm going to do today to celebrate. Right. When they can't. So I'm just asking you to do that just because I'd like you to be more sensitive today. I do want you to enjoy it. If you have a loved one, and you have somebody that you're gonna spend this day with my gosh, enjoy it and enjoy it. And it's it's a fun day for so many people, and and I do want you to enjoy it. And so do that I'm going to sign off early. I would just think all of you for being participating in this little fun show. And thanks J B, and I just want everybody for participating show. Listen, as I say to you every week that we're together, I say, be inspired. Because when you're inspired that means you could inspire someone else and in when they inspired there. Someone else.

"And I went while. Because we say our mission statement like it's a mantra, and it stops stops, meaning anything, and you certainly don't feel anything. And you know, one of the things that I I've always wanted when I wanna do at this show. Right. New direction is I want people to feel. I want them not just to be. I want them to feel something. I want them to feel like they're part of something. And that the show is being helpful to them. I want them to feel like they're that. We've given them something that night is only emotional, but that mentally challenges them that makes them think. And I wanted to show that physically you'll do something and then enhanced yourself on some spiritual level as well. And so that was the whole goal. The show is that we were going to do is we were going to enhance the four areas of your life that I'm so firmly believe in which is why I ask you where you're at every week because I'm such a firm believer in in in that this is what the goal of the show is tell all those areas of your life. And so when he started talking about the mission statement as being something that you feel not just something that you say it really rang true with me because that's I know that's what I want us to do is to help people find a new direction in their life and their career in the business. Hey, michael. And I wanna ask you if you're in business right now. And I don't or if you're in sales. You know, what is your personal mission statement? Right. I mean, what is your personal mission statement in life in your business in your career? I mean, if I if I were to ask you, you know, Michael, what's your what your personal mission statement or Judd, which your personal mission statement? What would it be Travis? What what your personal mission statement J B? What's your personal mission statement? Is it something that you say is it something that you've even thought about? And is it something that is felt or is it something that you just say? Right. And and and I really hate Kelly. You know, what is your personal mission statement? Is it something that you are what your business mission statement? Is it something that you say is it really something that other people can feel and then do you demonstrate that whatever your mission statement is? I mean, do you do you demonstrate that day in day out? J B says to me I encourage others to live live learn love and laugh again. Okay. Boy, I could feel that I could feel that. Okay. Yeah. Right because you got the courage -ment, right? By the way, we underestimate the word encourage, okay. Encourage means to give another person are courage. Right. We underestimate that word. We say it. We think we know what it means. But really it's taking a part of our courage and giving it to someone else. So that they can do something with that. Right. So what is your what is your mission statement, which your business mission statement, you do other people feel it do you feel it or is it just something? It's clever. Right. That you say I say, I can just rattle it off. Sometimes what happens is with a mission statement, it becomes a mantra that just as something that I just can spew off the top of my tongue in it becomes meaningless. Right. That's right. That's right thought Matt was so good about saying that in this book, the story wins how to leverage Hollywood storytelling business in beyond. Is it your mission statement something that you say, or is it something that you feel pretty good? I think the other thing. I think the other thing. Hey, Jess, I think the other thing that I would say to you that this book was also great. And when we do get him on it, by the way, we're supposed to be talking about loan today. He was the one of the magic when the youngest illustrators of the Simpsons, and he was like nineteen years old when he was drawing Bart and. Marge and Homer and Lisa and all the other characters. I think he was like nineteen years old or something like that. It was like one of the mist illustrators ever for the Simpsons did it for three years. And then he went to Pixar studios when they first started opening up and was doing some drawing there with computer generated graphics, and then he wanted to get into storytelling, and he became a storyteller. Of course, as part of the team that did Toy Story to Radha TUI, monsters, Inc, etc. And so forth down the road. But I think the other thing I'm gonna ask you that. When we couldn't talk to today. Because he had surgery that he not scheduled. And so he can do that Tom says here's this. Here's this mission. See what we all think this live life of integrity and honesty, never losing sight

"On the same scale one to ten one being miserable? Ten being awesome. How are you doing spiritual? I mean emotionally, and what do I mean by that is how well are you able to keep your emotions and check first of all, right? Do you get angry at little things? Like if that person cuts you off does it upset you visit anger, you just just like that? Or are you able to kind of let it go? If somebody does the littlest thing wrong, does it just just get under your skin so much that you want to do something about it. That's where you need to check yourself in terms of your emotions, right because what we know about emotions. And here's the thing that we totally wrong on emotions is that we believe there's a loss that says, well, if you don't let him out and you hold him in. That's that's the way that you're going to be able to get rid of that. And that's absolutely not true. What we know the research is so clear on this the angry, you are and the more you let it express it the angrier. You will get to just what we do as humans. So controlling our motions is key in what happens is sometimes we let circumstances guide our emotional state. And it's really easy to do. Listen. I'm not telling you that I've got this down. All right because I clearly don't, but when we are able to face our circumstances. Hi, Jason when we're able to face circumstances and not react to them. Because of the way things are happening and are able controller motions. That's when we can start clicking in our mental side, and our physical side to do something about it. So controlling most important the other part of how are you doing emotionally is how well are you relating to other people's emotions? And you don't want one of the keys to and I struggle with this all the time complete complete vulnerability and transparency. Here listening is a key skill to understanding other people's emotions do you know what they feel? Do you understand how they feel really? And do you care enough to understand how they really feel? See I don't care what business you're in. I don't care. What relationships you're in? Whether you're married or single or you're trying to date or you're trying to sell something. The fact of the matter is everything that you read including in this book. And other books that I've done on the show about marketing if you're able to really tune into somebody else's emotions. You're probably going to win the deal. We we're so busy trying to tell people what we want. And what? And how we feel that we spend less time. Trying to understand how other people feel. And if you're in sales, or if you're managing people or you're part of a team understanding how people feel is critically important to success. I convinced of it beyond anything else when we start understanding each other and how they feel I don't have to -gree with you. But if I understand it now what happens is I'm able to go forward because people want to be understood what one of us doesn't want to be understood. I just want people to understand me. We all want that. So why don't you become that as part of the emotional part of muscial piece? So scale one attended motioning where yet right? You got that number good. Okay. Finally, the spiritual peace skills went to ten where you at spiritually. And you say j I don't believe in spiritual things. You know, I get that a lot where people ask me, I just don't believe in spiritual stuff. But the truth of the matter is you do you don't you don't see it as spiritual, but you actually do believe in spiritual things because there are so many things that you cannot explain in terms of science, and in terms of things that you see, and you go give me an example. Okay. So you can't explain for instance, why we love someone else. It's it's not a physical attraction, it might be a part of it. But you can't explain why we love another person that we're not even connected to. It's very hard. You can't it's hard to explain why love dog. That doesn't communicate back with you. It is hard to explain why somebody would die for somebody else that they don't know. And yet our military and police officers do it every day. Right. Because there's something bigger than that something something that science can explain never will explain it is why why we're eight why we have all those things rights because there's something bigger than us. We believe in it. We so people believe in karma. Are they believe in nature some people believe in God? And and so excuse me. So when I asked a question spiritually where you at. I'm asking you. How are you tuned in right? And and and if you do believe in God, I'm going to just ask you. How's that relationship going, right? And what do you need to do to improve? It. Just like I ask any of the other foreigners, right? And then I would ask you, whatever that spiritual areas of your life. I would ask you this. I would ask you is it working. Do you feel sense of peace? Are you do you feel sense of joy and happiness joy? Right. Two different things. So you got four numbers physical number a mental number emotional, number, a spiritual number right scale went to ten right in each of those areas. You gotta think of those for numbers as the four legs of table. Okay. So the forelegs table, right? And if they're uneven it's going to be pretty hard to eat off that table, if they're if they're even it's great. But if they're all really low, then it's really hard to eat. Right. If you're sitting in normal chair, right? So the idea is to be balanced and have your table at the right height. And so we want you to be there. And so hope that helps you to check in. So let me tell you what's going on Travis. So let me tell you. What's going on today? So Matt loon who was the illustrator for the Simpsons for three years and also was part of the original Pixar, folks. And actually did the storytelling Toy Story two. Let's see what else did he do monsters Inc. Anyway, he was involved in a number of those things. And so he was supposed to be scheduled today. And the problem was that I gave him a call. And I talked to phone any is had he had a last minute surgery. I did not get to find out about nobody. Let me know evidently is agent and let me know, and so he couldn't be on the show today. So when I wanted to do is I wanted to take your questions, and if you have any questions, otherwise I'm going to ramble on see Lisa Rutily said to me. There's fireworks tonight in long branch. The sun is shining full blast. It's in the fifties. So this is a New Jersey, by the way. So if you're looking for something to do on Valentine's Day today there at in New Jersey, there is fire works tonight at long branch. And so when did you go check that out, and I got a feeling Lisa's going to be there, by the way, Lisa's my cousin and. If you if you see her say, hey, you know, we heard you on the show today on the new direction. J b wells says you haven't read my Sifi book. I know I haven't read your Sifi book, I know J B. I, you know, I love you dearly. But. Saifi is really really hard for me to to read. Judd, welcome to the show. But Saifi is really really not one of those things that I can read I can't make it through. And she says shame on me. Well, okay shame. Okay. I get it. I get it. But I love your other stuff. I mean, I do I love your other books. Your other books are great. And by the way, if you want a fun. I really believe that this young lady J, B wells, and it's J e letter B period. Wells. She is an author and writes, she's actually a much more prolific writer than I am. But she does these she does these great scifi books. I haven't read them. But they're so people love them, and she has tremendous fouling, but she also has this Erma Bombeck quality about her world. She literally lets you into her life on the farm and and being in cans. And it is some of the funniest stuff that you will ever read. I'm convinced of it. I read every one of those books and being from the midwest and being raised in the mid west. I'm telling you the books are Larry. Hey scottie. Great have you? But if you will just check out J E B, period wells, LS on Amazon, you can certainly by her books and great great stuff. She's a great writer and really really really funny. So I'm glad that she was here. So just letting everybody know Matt loon cannot make it with us today. He's Jad emergency surgery. I just talked him on the phone from his bed. Yes. I literally I talked to him from his bed. And we're going to talk about this book. The best story wins, by the way, fabulous book. Great book. I've read it now three times, I think is many times I've read this book, and my wife has read the book she's applying so many of the principles from this book to her business, and I'm doing the same thing. And just great book, the guy, of course, illustrated the Simpsons, but then his told us was part of the storytelling team for Radha TUI monsters Inc. And also. Also Toy Story two, and he really really really is. It's a fabulous book. It's not a long read. I highly recommend that you read this book. It's called the best story wins how to leverage Hollywood storytelling in business and beyond. It's really great read. And I don't care what business you're in. You're gonna find out that this book is going to help you. I thought one of the things one of the things that he said in this book that I wanted to share with you that I found so revealing was we all have a mission statement. And if you don't you should have a mission statement, okay? But he said, you know, what a mission statement should in this book. He says the mission statement should be more than something. You say it needs to be something that people feel and

We have one of those things occasionally happens when you do. A show of the shorts. Sometimes we will do show, and you have guessed that you're planning on. And all of a sudden, I found out that our guest today, and that room has recently had an unscheduled surgery. And so he is not gonna be able to be on the show today. And so, and I apologize and he apologized to he he sounded off. He was still in bad. Matter of fact, he told me I don't even have to tell you with the surgery was not scheduled. I'm gonna pass out by the way, the book is brave. The book is called the the best the best story wins and Matt loon. Who is of course, did the Simpsons for three years was actually one of the youngest artist of the Simpsons for three years. Andrew Barton and the entire Simpson's family and everybody else did that for three years, and then was part of the original Pixar studios. And he, of course, did Toy Story to which she not just drew. He didn't dry at that point. He was starting to tell the story and the book is about how to tell your story in business and do it in such a way that you can you can take you could take your story the story and actually improve your business. So anyway, so we're going to do something different today show. And here's what we're going to do. We're going to do a show. We're gonna to show where I am going to take your questions today. So I I want to say Hello to Jordan Goodfellow Thomas Canley, Jim shore horn thank you for joining. Hey, Jay wells. Great CU and ship parish is with us right now here on a new direction. And so by the way, I need an hi Lisa routinely. Also, I need to let you know that the show is brought to you by end line business brokers and advisors, and we appreciate them so much because their bene- sponsor the show from the very beginning. And we're really excited about that. Because as being a sponsor the show, we are now in countries all over the world. We are matter of fact. Canada is number two in terms of the most listened to. And so we think our Canadian brothers and sisters to the north. Thank you, Jordan Goodfellow is one of them. I appreciate them downloading the podcast the night. Tune Spotify and wherever your favorite podcast is maybe it's Google play or Stitcher high Geneva. Great too heavy Abby great tabby with this as well. And so when they Canadians, but then when the people in the UK who listen to the show regularly, especially my folks in Merton, which is just south of London. I wanna just think all of you. I'm gonna take my folks in Sweden and Norway and Finland and even some folks in Africa who listen to the show and other countries, and it's really exciting that when we first started doing this show, we had no idea what was going to happen. And the fact that we are touching so many lives and people and just really is humbling to me that we're able to do some positive things for people especially in a world where. It seems that there isn't a lot of positivity. That's what this show a new direction has been about is is doing that. And so I am so grateful that we are now touching world and we're only thirty three shows in. And so that means that there's a lot more of the world that maybe we can touch. And so the other thing I need to do is this t shirt, I need to thank Dak no marketing for the t shirt. And so I'm wearing it. So I've been wearing t-shirts last few weeks and people have asked why you wearing t shirts. And so the reason why I'm wearing t shirts because people give me t shirts. And so I thought you don't want him ado, I'm going to wear the t shirts I've been given. And if people want to if you have a company, or if you're a person who just wants me to wear your name on a T shirt. I'm an extra large. Okay. If you wanna send me a t shirt, I will wear your t-shirt on on my show, and I will wear it the whole show long, whoever I'm talking to. I will give you a shout out on the show. If you do it again, it's an extra large. You could send it to J is at two zero two four making ridge road, Raleigh North Carolina, two seven six one three. That's Jay is. And that is 202 four making ridge road, Raleigh North Carolina, two seven six one three. And if you want to send me, an extra large t shirt, I will wear your t-shirt what we're doing this live, and you can kind of watch you can watch me talk about it. And I will give you absolutely shout. And by the way, if you don't have a business, and you just want me to send send me an extra large t shirt with your name on it. I will do that too. If that if that's what you want me to do. I'm happy to do that for you. I'm just really grateful for all you all of you tune in on a regular basis and listen to this show, and I am so grateful because again, I just had no idea that this is what we would be. So let me do what I do every week. Right. Let me check in with you on the four areas of your life. Right. I believe we're we're four. Part people physical mental, emotional, and spiritual people. And so let me just check in with your numbers right in scale of one to ten one being miserable. Ten being couldn't be any better. Where are you at physically today? Meaning, you know, how are you doing like do you feel like you're you're getting along getting in better shape? You feel like you feel good? Are you doing all the things necessary? Maybe you're diets better or you're exercising more. And that skill of went to ten one being just the worst ten being the best. Where are you at physically right now? Right now, I ask you that question because they also want to know where. What do you need to do to improve to get to the next number? So we guardless of what your number is. Now. I don't care if it's a two or if it's a or JBC's says, it's a six, right? Okay. So J B. What are you gonna do? What do you need to do to go from six to seven and need you get to a six to attend. And Tom says he's Nate's, Tom. What do you need to get from the net, which is awesome? Tom. Good for you. What do you need to get from eight to nine? What do you need to change in your life right now to get to to get to a nine or get to a seven or whatever that number is that you have what do you need to do? What do you need to change you need to eat better? Do you need to cut something out of your diet? Maybe maybe too much sugar. Maybe maybe maybe find yourself eating a lot more bad things. You know, maybe, you know. We've all done this. Right. We have the baggage ships, and you're sitting in front of the TV and the next thing, you know, you have that Greece stain up to your elbow because you're that beep into the bag, right? Maybe maybe we need to cut some things out. We shouldn't shouldn't be eating or maybe we maybe we take cheat days because we feel we deserve a cheat day, you know, so maybe that's what you gotta do to change. But whatever it is. I want you to think about what do you need to do to change? And then how are you going to commit to making that change? What are you going to do to commit to that change? Right because nothing changes unless you change. All right. All right. So you got your first number great. All right. So. Jay says I need to get rid of the flu. You know? What getting rid of flu will raise your numbers for? Sure. All right. So how about mentally where you at that scale of went to ten one being absolutely awful and being amazingly, mentally where are you at Thomas? He's going to eliminate fried foods. Shh. Don't tell him. Okay. I won't although she may be listening to the show or she's watching it. So we're about mentally what do you feeding your mind right now? Are you feeding your mind could things you can feed your mind? Good things and bad things. Right. Just like you can feed your body. Good things and bad things. Right. You could do the same thing. Mentally, you know, sometimes we can consume the wrong thing in our in our mental state. Sometimes we read the wrong things. Sometimes we are. So caught up into reading something that really isn't all that good for us. It's really not expanding our mind, helping us grow. You know, one of the things that I love about doing this show. Is I read basically one book week, and it's really cool because I've noticed as I've done this. And I've never done this before by the way of reading a book a week what it does to my brain. But it really really expands it, and I'm learning so much along the way about you know, how to do my business better or how to be better as a person or how to be better in my career, or you know, there's so many there's just so many. Good things that you could be putting into your brain. And remember, your your brain is to have right? It's collect it's connected by this thing, we call corpus callosum, which is way too nerdy. I know. But it's when I am, but you have a right and left brain. And you're right brain is that brain that your creative side. So you need to feed that creativity. That creative side you need to feed the right time you need to do something creatively. And you say, what can we learn a language you could take up an instrument, you could try to learn a new instrument, you can draw you can do something artistic or you know, you can you can do things with words word puzzles do things that expand place scrabble. That's creative. I mean sounds so simple. But it's really true. It's a great game. And then you have the left side of your brain. Right. Which is the logical side of your brain. Right. So here's here's the thing about the left side. I think the left side sometimes so much more easier. John mosier. Here's the thing. That is so much easier about the left. Saadia brain. It's so much easier to find logical things to read. It doesn't make us feel good necessarily. But there logical the logical things the numbers the logic. And we need to feed both sides of our brain the mistake that we make is we get sucked up into one side or the other right? And I have friends who you know, will only want to be on the logical side. And they don't have anything to do with that fun creative side. Then if people only want to do the fun crater sign no want to do anything on the logical side. You've got to have a balance of both. So on a scale one to ten what your number mentally have you been doing right one being miserable. Ten being awesome. How you doing mentally in feeding your brain? Right. You got that number. So you got to numbers physical mental number. No, let me talk expert. I mean, emotionally. What are you doing on
