"darren hardy" Discussed on How to Live A Fantastic Life

"And it's great to be able to go into these circles again. Exactly. I was a leading cosmetic surgeon in North America for many years. My life changed in the early 2000s when I was told I had ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease and told I had 6 months to live. So thank goodness the diagnosis was incorrect and I'm still on this planet, but it's given me a new life. It's given me a different way of looking at things and being grateful for every day that I have. Exactly grateful about everything I've been given. Able to help other people get to their level as a result of that and help people get to their wonderful presence that they are. You know, I think every person is an amazing individual. All we have to do is find that amazing individual inside themselves. Exactly. Exactly. I think it might have been Willie jolly or some speaker like himself that said, we have to take our mess and turn it into our message. And, you know, like for yourself, you know, having, you know, being diagnosed, particularly with legarrette disease and not being the case, but obviously there was something there that you had to work through. But it puts you in a place where you were forced to go to a place to dig and grow in a way that you probably would have never done if you hadn't been diagnosed with that. In 2018, and I share that because in 2018, I had a major bat with what's called vertigo. And it wasn't the normal vertigo where you kind of lose your balance and do a little thing to kind of get you back normal. This liked out what's called my vestibular system. I'm really lost the ability to walk. And it was spinning the weekend bed, wondering if this was going to be my life. And thinking, I have a TEDx talk that I was approved to deliver in 6 weeks. Am I going to deliver that? And then remembering that in my talk, I talked about the neuroscience of music. And that led me to go, okay, I'm going to have to eat my own dog food and start playing music. And see if that repair will help me recover. And literally within three weeks, I walked into my doctor's office ear nose and throw doctor for the first appointment and I had gotten back to the point where I could walk again and 6 three weeks later I was on stage and I delivered my TEDx talk and wrote a new song who wrote the speech and the whole 9 yards, but that put me on a learning journey on an journey about neuroscience and other things that if I hadn't gone through that challenge or that mess, I wouldn't have experienced what I experienced with some of the growth that I've had. It isn't it interesting that some of our greatest difficulties are greatest things that cause us problems are really the things that cause us our greatest growth. Exactly. Exactly. It's like our greatest pains become our greatest blessings. Yeah. And it truly is that way. Now, along the way, you must have had some role models. Who was your role model? I would say, you know, folks like Steve Harrison, Jack. I have some friends in Maryland that have a really good buddies of mine. They're not famous people. They're just good, you know, good ordinary guys that you don't long-term relationships and friendships with their families. And they are kind of like a good core, a part of my life. But folks like Darren hardy, just thinking of Neil Patel, I literally spent on looking at who's climbing the mountain.

"It's been around, and it's had everybody from Napoleon hill to augment, you know, to more recently, Mel Robbins, a couple issues ago, we had Jamie kern Lima, she founded a company and sold it to, I think it was L'oreal for over a $1 billion. She's like 40 years old. And but it's all these people who've been super successful in life and are willing to give back and help other people be more successful. It's not so much about the recognition even though there's always some sort of monetary reward that sort of attached to putting yourself out there in that sort of way. But it's really about how do I help other people think the right way accurate way do the right things to sort of take their life, their business to the next level. Well, makes perfect sense. But from an agent brokers perspective from a real estate agent, I imagine they didn't, the opportunity to be associated with a brand that's over a hundred years old that has so much incredible historical tie ins, it's not like just any, it's so beyond the normal things that are big real estate company would ever do. And so it was thinking so far out of the box that I think initially people were going like what? And then, like I said, just a couple weeks later, there started to see where your mind was going with all of it, and it was like, wow, this is amazing, because you could do so many little spin offs associations, and that's such a well-known. I mean, you go any magazine stand and where there's a magazine stand, right? And they're success magazine. And it's been there forever. That's incredible. Yeah, there's been some breaks in the history of the magazine where it wasn't on the stands. But, you know, it's been, I think, the previous owner kind of resurrected it in 2008, Darren hardy was really big with the magazine for a number of years. And you talked to real estate agents all.

"If you're going a million miles an hour in the wrong direction, you're going to end up a million miles an hour in the wrong direction. Because you're really just that clear and Chris, I see so many people in this day and age. They just get up and they just spend their wheels and their go go, go, go, but man, I mean, they just don't know where they're going. They don't even have a mark on the wall that they're looking for. And you're a big believer in that as well. If you don't actually know what you're shooting at, you're going nowhere. You're going absolutely nowhere. So kind of expound upon your philosophy on that. And how you've seen that play out in life. Yeah, my philosophy because I've always been what drove me out to LA to just kind of figure it out. I've always been driven. And I was also that guy, I was the guy that was just going for it. And I was just every day, like, what can I do? What can I do? And that's great. And that's a great spirit, and that's a good starting point. But that same mentality caused me to really try to analyze and figure out what approach worked the best. And I'm still very much on the mission to figure that out, but what I have gained that was life-changing for me is. It's about sitting down. I always say like, dim the lights, grab a glass of wine. Do whatever you gotta do to get really in touch with yourself. Be honest with yourself about what you want long term. 5 years, ten years even. What sort of financial success do you really want? Don't just say rich. What sort of lifestyle do you really want? What do you want to be able to do for your friends and family? Be honest and like I said, don't just say I want to be a billionaire. So carve that all out. Look at what that looks like. Think about how you could get there, right? If you're a musician, you know, it's your musician career, if you're an entrepreneur, you want to build a business, whatever that looks like, and set that big goal. And say, here's what I'm going to be doing in 5 years, ten years. Here's how much money I'm going to be making great, right? And that is cool. And that's a huge part of the battle, but it is not the only battle. And I think a lot of people do that and then they sit and stare at this Mount Everest that they just created for themselves. And they don't know what to do tomorrow. And you get paralyzed and you end up doing nothing and then now all of a sudden you think you're a loser and you didn't get anywhere close to your goal. So it's about setting that big goal reverse engineering that all the way back to what you could do by the end of this year. What could you do by the end of this month? What could you do by the end of this week and what could you do tomorrow? And it is clear as you can get on that and set realistic attainable goals. What's going to happen is tomorrow you're going to wake up, you're going to have a list of attainable goals. You're going to do them. You're going to feel like a winner. You're going to feel a little bit better. You're going to go to bed with that same feeling that we just talked about of accomplishment and happy and you have a full to do list tomorrow and you're going to do that too. And before you know it, those things are going to start to build, you're going to start to build some real self confidence and you are going to be absolutely shocked at what small wins and small daily goals add up to in the long term and all of a sudden you're way more on target to that big time goal than you ever thought you could be and now you have all the wind behind your back that you could ever need. Fire nation, when you wake up and you have small attainable goals. Guess what? You feel like you can accomplish them because you can. And so then you start and you accomplish them and then you get a win and then you get momentum and then you're like, all right, I'm still hungry. Give me that next small attainable goal and you keep moving forward. And there's two books, Chris, I think, really align with this that I love. And I recommend quite often as much as I can. And that's the slight edge by Jeff Olson in the compound effect by Darren hardy. Both of those books are around the same premise of you gotta do the small things right every single day. That's what the slight edge is about. Do the small things right. And you're slight edge you're giving yourself every single day. It's going to over time be massive. And of course, the compound affects similar thing. The little things added up, compounds and it's amazing what you can accomplish. And I love one of those quotes. I'm pretty sure it was a Peter drucker quote, but I could be wrong, but it's so many people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year, but they underestimate what they can accomplish in ten years. And that is so true for so many people. We set these audacious goals. I want to be making a $1 million by the end of this year. Well, the year is going to come pretty quickly. I mean, life goes fast. But then they think about ten years and they're like, I want to be making $2 billion and you can really do some amazing things in a decade and a lot of people underestimate that and you have to have that as a focus fire nation. Small attainable goals now can add up to huge, huge wins down the line, but wake up with that thing that you can just take a bite out of, get that small win. Get that momentum in just keep winning. And Chris, you're a big believer that if you're not growing and learning, you're actually going backwards. And I see a lot of people get complacent. And that's a word that I'm terrified of. I never want to be complacent because I know when you're complacent, the world just passes you by. So how do you make sure that you're always growing? You're always learning. You're never getting complacent. One second, another book that I wanted to recommend in there if you don't mind is because it just changed my perspective on some of that gold stuff is Bill Walsh, the score takes care of itself. Well, I've never even read that. So I'm glad you recommended that because I'm going to check that puppy out. You will love it. And it's just about how he believed in taking care of the fundamentals. And if you took care of the fundamentals, you could win a Super Bowl. If you thought about the Super Bowl too much, you were going to forget the fundamentals. You weren't going to have either. And just really taking care of those daily fundamentals. So that's a really good one, but that's what really sparked my brain change on that. To answer that question. Not being complacent, making sure that you're growing that you're learning, how do you do that? I think that if you're not learning, right? And you're just kind of you might even be working hard. But you're just kind of working. That's about what it takes to stay still. So a lot of people think, well, if I just do nothing and I sit and play video games and drink Mountain Dew, I'm going to be staying still. No, you're actually going backwards. It takes quite a bit of work to just keep your place in whatever you're doing. To actually move forward, requires you to get out of your comfort zone, learn new stuff. And it doesn't even necessarily mean working harder. It's just working smarter. It's changing. It's looking at things from different angles. It's really a valuating what you're doing and opening yourself up to criticism. All of the things that we talked about in this episode, those are the things that it really takes to move forward. So it's not about sitting and being lazy. Obviously, it's also not about just straight up hard work. It's about all of those things. And I think for me, just there's a few things that I try to do to really make sure that I do that, but one of the main ones is I try with everything that I have to read a new book every single week. And it's hard and I'm podcasting and I'm running a business and I'm busy just like everyone else. But I have just noticed that taking that 30 minutes before bed or 30 minutes in the morning or wherever I can squeeze it to read and to put new information and new perspectives into my mind as opposed to working on old ones ends up actually being much more valuable. Chris, before we wrap up here, I just want a story. And this can be a story of your choice. But what's something that happened to you fairly recently, business wise, that you thought was really interesting. Interaction with a client with a customer, something like that. I just know that my audience can really glob onto and learn from actual real world experiences. You're running a business. You're running a podcast. You're reading books. You're living life. You're doing all these things. What's something interesting that happened to you? Sometime recently, these would be.

"Loosen, loosen things up a little bit. But again, it does sound like so many of these things that you've been doing for the last three months. There's going to be a nice effect on just these are rituals now. Yeah. You know, in a ritual, it's just a defined before we go here. A habit can be good. It can be bad. It's not locked in. It's not like a one of those subconscious things really until it becomes like a ritual like you said, you know? It's just a, it's just a habit. Now, sometimes in life, sometimes we have these bad habits that take away and move us further away from where we're trying to go. And then sometimes we just try and replace that one bad with one good, and then repeat that now. And once it's a repeatable thing that's just ingrained in who you are, now it's a ritual. Now it's probably something that you couldn't even stop doing. If you wanted to, it's just momentum. That's what you need with a big motor kick in so it becomes a ritual. It takes about in my opinion, no 75 hard first week was the hardest with not drinking. But after ten days I could feel big mole kicking in momentum. I get that from Darren hardy. I think the compound effect about big moss always talks about big moment and get big more working in your favor. And I think ending the podcast just talking about thoughts. Because taxi thinking is toxic life. And so they've now know that the brain is plastic and it can be molded based on your thoughts. And so whenever somebody says, oh, it's genetic or have bad genes. That's all BS and they know that now, neuroscience and epigenetics. Proves now that our thoughts literally create our genes and we have good genes and bad genes and we can turn the good genes on or with our thoughts or we can turn them off with our thoughts and same with the bad, right? And so literally, they've proven now through research that toxic thinking literally makes people sick. And stinking thinking, whether you believe something or not, you're right. I mean, that's really what it comes down to. So I think ending the podcast just saying, hey, I'm 50. I just gave myself a check up from the neck up at 50 years old. I never, ever want to stop learning and growing and becoming a better version of me. And the second that I think that I know it all or I've mastered it as the second I'm going to die in my opinion because you're either growing or you're growing or regressing every single day, but it all starts with your thoughts. So during your morning time, whatever you decide to do if you're going to take to heart what I talked about planning ahead, put some gratitude in there. And I would just end this with that. The very act of being grateful releases endorphins in the brain, that increase happiness. The increased fulfillment increased purpose and passion and all those things. And so I think we take for granted and we don't even realize that thousands of starving kids are dying every day. Yeah. And so if we can turn on the lights and flush the toilet and we got food on the table, we have to be more grateful than 95% of the population. It's just that we have a microscope on the 5%. That's what's on the news. Nobody's talking about all these starving kids from COVID and all the stuff that's happened over there..

"darren hardy" Discussed on Beyond Retirement

"Hi everyone welcomed episode one fifty one of beyond retirement last week. We had the opportunity to hear about how patrick o'malley is helping to keep people happy. And how we can stimulate our brains through learning. He spoke specifically about his work teaching people how to play the guitar but he did say that the same process probably works with any instrument. So if you've always wanted to play an instrument maybe now's the time to pick it up and get started. We're not getting any younger we. If you haven't listened to patrick's interview be sure to listen to it right after this episode or go right on over and listen to it now if you like just be sure to come back here and listen to my thoughts on what we discussed. I guess the first big takeaway from my interview with patrick has to be that. It's important to keep learning and to be passionate about it as you go through life because it leads not only to improve brain health but also increased physical health. Patrick pointed out. A few research studies that show how studying music decreases rates of depression and increases both cognitive and verbal skills. Of course not. Everyone wants to learn an instrument. I get that but there are so many other things to learn. Try a new language or maybe pick a time period from history and start learning what you can of. What that period. I'd be willing to bet that any period in history has something interesting going on that. You didn't know about the second thing that patrick talked about that. I'm really interested. In is the idea of how to create habits. He talked about flopping one tooth. The idea being that if you don't generally floss your teeth but you wanted to start one way to do. It is to decide that. You're going to floss one tooth today and then tomorrow you've lost that one tooth again and one more chances are good that if you take the time to floss that first tooth you'll keep on and do the rest anyway. It works the same way with just about anything that you wanna create a habit of doing. I wrote a blog post about this topic awhile ago. Actually the post was about three different books that i read on the idea of habits and small changes. The books are the compound effect by darren. Hardy the slight edge by jeff olson and atomic habits by james clear the basic premise of each of them is the by making small seemingly insignificant changes each day. You can have a profound overall effect on your life so small changes can be positive or negative. Meaning that if you keep making small negative choices such as watching another hour of tv at night instead of going for a walk over time. The resulting impact will be much larger and still negative while each day. The impact doesn't seem to be much at all. An extra hour of tv isn't really going to change your day much today. You might even feel perversely better if you've been a bit tired through your day and you just want to relax and watch. Tv and one day is nothing you tell yourself but tomorrow night because today's activity or lack of it didn't really affect you badly. You might choose to do nothing again to see how it compounds. after few days it's much easier to forgo the exercise in favor of the relaxation. The guilty voice in your head has been pushed aside by the little demon guy who saying see no problem you can relax by the same token it's pretty easy to make small positive changes without really changing your life drastically. Maybe you've decided to take up that instrument. We spoke about earlier so today you play for just five minutes learning how to make some sound come out of whatever. Instrument is no big deal right. Five minutes is nothing then tomorrow. You do the same thing again but because you already did five minutes today you get a bit further because you already know how to make the sound. And the next day he actually played a couple of notes or chord or whatever now you can start to see the change happening and it gets easier to take that five minutes it might even turn into ten minutes or fifteen minutes after a couple of days when you start to see the compounding effect that the small changes make. I know you can't see me. But i'm moving my hand making an upward curve an exponential increase. That is the change over time. If you can picture that it's a very small change for a long long time and suddenly it shoots up as you hit the tipping point and the more you do the activity the greater the increase in your change. Of course as i said before it works on both the positive and the negative scale so that exponential surge could be downward if you're not careful about the actions you're taking something to think about for sure as you make your plans for your post retirement activities most of us head into retirement thinking of all the things. We'll do all the things we can do who we often forget that the first step is simply to start. I've talked to a lot of people who are so busy after retirement that they don't know how they found time to work previously and yet others seemed to be stuck in that first step. They don't know what to do to get started. Many are hesitant. Perhaps over thinking what they should be doing with their time when someone asks me for advice or suggestions on what to do. My answer's almost always the same. It really doesn't matter what you start doing. Because of it turns out to be a poor choice for some reason. You can stop doing it. The important part as i mentioned a moment ago is to start as the famous quote attributed disag- ziglar says you don't have to be great to start but you have to start to be great and maybe you're not looking to be great. That's okay too. Having a good life is a great goal to strive for. And you still have to get started. Even vincent van gogh felt the same when he said great. Things are done by series of small things brought together. So all these people darren hardy. Jeff olson james cleary zig ziglar. Vincent van gogh can't all be wrong. Right and patrick's research shows the same thing. Getting started is important. So there's your challenge for this week start something. I don't care what it is that you choose to start just get started choosen instrument you've always loved and learned to play a note. Pick a language. You think sounds beautiful when you hear it and learn a word or two floss one tooth. It doesn't matter. Just start next week. I'm gonna be chatting with marc singer. The president of safe harbor retirement planning. He's going to be talking about the retirement red zone. You won't want to miss this interview. And that's it for this episode of beyond retirement.

I wanna say seventy k. In revenue and your first thing said you said the music stop right. There is no. That's not normal right but as it's continued direct meals and continue to be great for us because everyone else is still texting right right and we stop texting just kind of for us. Is that same thing. Right like the gray. That's definitely the gray area. It's not black gray so we stopped taxing because we just want to do with any of that. Aso direct mail is definitely been great for us. So i i loved i love the scale ability of it. I love the nature of inbound calls marketing and i think that you know direct mail even more so than like. Ppc reflects on your sales process to so i would say that's probably a lot of why it works so well for you guys is. You guys are rocking sales sales process and everything else and the better. You are better. You are lead management the better. You are follow ups the better. Your acquisition managers are the better the results. You're gonna get right. One thing that i thought was interesting. Is you're very big fan of maps coaching true and maps for those. You know where. I wanted to share with everyone. Maps is so keller williams for their realtors has a company called maps coaching. Gary keller took their best coach one of their best coaches and started maps business. Coaching which is essentially all of the systems and processes of that make williams so successful and specifically their coaching company so successful and then they take apply that to traditional businesses. But you're not a traditional realtor so not traditional realtor so maps. Coaching is for realtors maps. Business coaching is for everybody. Besides realtors god so mavs business. Coaching does not coach any realtors. They only took to my understanding. They only coach like traditional businesses. So one thing. That's really interesting is that you're very big. Fan of person. Developed both in hero's journey together already. We both have for sure. Darren hardy nerds and saint productivity hero's journey which by the way i count my when i when i first heard your create one hundred millionaires thing i was like sounds like something influenced by by darren and i totally count myself as one of your millionaires because all the way up when when i first started and was like okay. I've done you know. I don't necessarily want to do this. Exact same flip business. I gotta go learn what i need to do. The podcast i listen to his bigger pockets. Wholesaling inc and real estate disruptors and this was the one that i never missed so i definitely huge part of my business came from your guests on here and real estate disruptors appreciate that. I wish you were selling as much stuff. Then as you are now i would have been in and all of it and gotten even further faster. Yeah so so. It's really cool because you're both really. You know being on persons of element. But was i find. Even even more admirable is that you will pay to develop your people on percent. So can you talk about that because not everyone as some people. Don't wanna pay for around. Like why do. I need this ragging. Go and i was that ignorant personal when i first started right. It's like why would ever pay for someone on your own.

There's always a reason why i couldn't be doing it right. And and i take a step back. And i realized that you know what maybe they're not the outliers or maybe if they are. I'm one of them right. I'm sitting here in the room with them. I'm talking with them. And like ben said how am i not seeing. What's what's right in front of me. And it was a big wakeup call to to realize like you know what maybe success is a given in failures the outlier. you know. I'm with this group. That i have the support. I'm not standing alone vast abyss of like fear and and lack of knowledge. And and maybe this is not maybe but actually you know that's how it is is maybe i will be successful moving forward and so that was a huge wakeup call for me and then i sat back. But what does success mean right. What is all of this. And it's taken me years to figure out for myself what it is and it's different for everybody right so i don't wanna get preach about what what it is for me but the thing is is like you know this pulls us into the whole four futures thing you know and and talking about personal life work life your your health your fitness and everything and realizing that success in is in all of these different areas and for years just like when you know you go to dental. I went to dental school afterwards. We'll get. I guess i'd on my own practice. You know. we're sitting in school and people were talking about you. Be my own boss. I was like oh really. That sounds good now. Four days a week and my work four days a week really no. I had no idea about the profession so get out of school. My boy i guess all on my own practice because that's what people do. I guess i'll do this. Like i had no direction at all as far as where i wanted to go or what i wanted to do and so i took this thing what is success for me and as i started success accessory. I realized that you guys are so many lessons. I'm trying to condense out here but this thing of like i was chasing the wrong thing right. I met jason at this course surgery. Course come up. i'll show you my practice. I'll teach all the surgery stuff. Don't waste money on all this stuff you can come out of me. I go up. I start doing that because well. I guess that's what you do and the more i got into it the more i realized i love surgery. It's okay i'll do some of it but all this stuff. I just don't like it and i don't like post ops and and i realized that you know maybe i'm chasing the wrong idea of success for myself and it took me a while to define again to a little bit of what i've kind of defined for me that is but this comes from the compound effect by darren hardy and this is what we've kind of adopted as our management philosophy is the biggest difference between successful people. Don't successful people is this accessible. People are willing to do what unsuccessful people are not and and i think that applies to both your personal life your family life scheduling time making it a priority work life profession. Money just about everything. That's what the biggest difference between successful people and unsuccessful. People kind of going along those lines. One of the greatest exercises we've done mark brought this up the personal ethos right. I've spent hours and hours after our masterminding going home and thinking over a lot of this stuff and developed my own personal personal ethos and what it means to me. What my priorities are how. I'm gonna live my life. And i've adopted that into our management team and we have right here this iraq's identity management ethos and really what it is. It's me and my my office manager crystal and kind of getting back about you know doing being successful in doing things with other people. Don't you know. I also realize it as i go to. Somebody's mastermind meetings. I'd come home and i'd back. Yeah they said to do this. But i can't do it because of x. y. and z. And now instead of saying. I can't do it. I'm like you know. I'm going to do what they said. But let me tweak it just a little bit to fit my streamlined practice. In what i'm doing because you know you get all these different philosophies and ideas from different people which are awesome. And they're just got tweeted a little bit well so crystal is a total resolve that she she's my office manager. She came to me three and a half years ago and right when we were moving into our new new office us came right out of assisting school. She knew nothing. It was as we're moving everything into our office to know the difference between an endo explore and extraction forceps. I mean it was a mess. And she's now running the whole show and do an awesome and most people don't have a dental assistant office manager. She says side by side with me every day she she knows how i think she knows what. I want frustrates me. What doesn't she is three half days a week to go. Take care of everything and it's worked out awesome. She's a total rockstar. The biggest issue is. I'm her biggest weakness probably because he only knows what i've taught her and we've got this whole group that can help me in that in that aspect but one thing that we do here is we take this our management ethos and in our management meetings. We sit down and we talk about this stuff. We talk about personal development enlightenment family and professional success in growth in the whole idea of like you know what for us. Success is a whole lot more than just the bottom line just overhead. Just the numbers just the money in the bank account. Talk about being a successful mother father. I talk about my frustrations that you know. I'm with my kids. But i'm not. I'm not with my kids. I'm somewhere else. I'm just like you know the idea of making eye contact with one talking to him and you know we go over those kind of things and set priorities. And i'm also very aware we've talked yesterday and mark brought up about how you know the issues in dentistry in the amount of depression and anxiety and that kind of stuff because of all the weight on her shoulders. Yes so it's easy. Hired office manager and dump it all on her right have her take care of all that stuff. You know the same thing that she understands and people in my office understand that the priority is is family and professional ford. And so what we did then. Almost you what we did so what i did is i ended up making a developing a retreat for the office and we flew to park city. Took all the ladies in my my associates and his wife and we went there and there we didn't focus on hygiene scheduling any of that stuff and said we wrote down. Our roles.

Except for tuesday's so monday wednesday thursday friday. I take him school. And we listen to darren. Hardy right during dot com. Yes so we listen to darren hardy on a daily and they don't love this we do it and not only did they have to listen to it with me in the car once over because as long enough to school after we listened to it i asked both of them million vivian. What did you learn from this one. After they share with me then we can listen to music. Fantastic i love that we permissions. Mike is don't like it either. But they'll learn something we're gonna just gonna keep brainwashing that's it that's exactly right. Yeah so that was the second reset of multifamily and the sec. And that whole year with the first marriage. But i'm glad you brought it up because a lot of people the whole point of being vulnerable and being real that that whole in fact i think hugh posted it. It was the the entrepreneur path. Right like it's not like seeing a goal envisioning the goal and just going straight to that goal. It's like the whole point of what we're doing to go through these challenges in these struggles and if you come out stronger. That's that's what's supposed to happen. Yeah right like. I can still say every time like my last divorce that happened like oh my god have been wiped out again like you know financially like almost took the businesses to the kids and you know what like what can i learn from this. Well in my new relationship would be super intentional And i'm gonna let her know that she's the one she's more important than anything else going on right and the kids. You're now more than anything else going on. When i'm with you so that has taught me how to have a solid habits every single morning that i'm trying to put together so we talk business but thank you for going to eat band because that's where we're at another thing too right and just got a quick tangent is that it's the it's the journey right. The destination we all she for destination with destinations relevant is a journey. Fulfiling awarding Amen and we have a couple of guys here got Eric brewer in edinburgh is sarah. What's eric so all right. So then multifamily didn't work out didn't work out twenty seven but that's still another eleven years ago to unwind so would you do after that So those multifamily. I put my head back in the sand. Like i'm going to back to my single-family the worked it worked the rehabs wholesales like all that stuff and it's funny is that Then i was banging my head against the wall trying to exceed like a forty year ceiling that i had And i did not know how to scale until my next big mastermind right which are huge fan of much genius. So i was like i go to the room and i'm like what what are. What are these people i i had. I had hired three people when i started to collect Genius rain and i was still trying to crush it but it was gonna head against the wall and the next evolution for me was understanding and this also you mentioned journey over destination so if my first y if my first destination was to make x. amount of dollars right what happens when we hit that. We'll just hit a bigger number right. We're gonna let's keep moving it and it would have been celebrating sometimes and i'm like okay. Let's get back to work here. But i'm at that. Point is my whole. Why started to shift right from from money was first to travel the world and every single country and have a gourmet food and beverages and every single country in the world. Then marquette's right now like okay. When did that with my kids. I don't want to give experiences for them. But then it it became something a whole different version of myself where i know. I'm going to invest money into this team. That's not going to be as effective as i was Right this is all my head this is the scarcity mindset talking but i have to now pay payroll and invest time and energy and money into these people that come on board and they can't close like me they don't know how to lead gen like me they i have. Sap's but like are they gonna follow him how we're gonna hold them accountable now if the yeldham every week to this is ridiculous and talking about yelling at every week right zero culture zero culture zero understanding of how to really manage people and and okay. Now we have six people now. What do you guys aren't meeting your numbers right numbers. Because i don't want to hear it. You didn't hear numbers like horrible management skills so it's a horrible early early early learning. We have to learn like that's the part of the entrepreneurial. Journey is learning all the different skills. Those skills right. We can learn how we jimmy galeao network. We can allow itself right. We can learn those skills managing the different skill. People don't you think that it just magically happens you. Watch these guys. Doing thirty forty fifty. Hundreds of deals of the year more skills has more skills so really in your management experience early because they felt face the struggles and challenges to I then literally made a huge pivot in just the past couple of years. Three years where. We're not just here to make money. We're not just here to To creep lives for us and our families right like what. Can we sit up here like what we do in real estate is just so freaking. Powerful break is week now. We're didn't even occur to me until i three years ago. We're touching people in the most intense emotional situation their life and not only are we touching motivated sellers in those types of people which i was one so i can relate but even know property management. We're touching tenants that have issues financial issues. And maybe you know job issues. And now pandemic issues and landlords that have never had a properly managed asset that they might be losing and having stress every morning and they're done taking the calls every single one of these people that were touching. We have an ability to leave impact. Right be whether they're calling up and screaming at us or we're reaching out proactively and making those contacts not only that with all of those people. They helped fund team that if we if we raise the team effectively inappropriately and in the right culture. This is what i learned last year. Half yeah if the right culture is there which starts with the leaders right at that point your entire mission becomes leaving an impact on people instead of just making money and when we shifted steve. Like obviously you're still spending is amazing. Right thank you. We shifted from trying to get the offer signed to getting a testimony And that was a whole shift as far as what we're supposed to be doing right so instead of when we set up the seller right. We framed them to go in with a take. A little walk through. Your house can be about thirty four minutes to do the rehab walk through and while they were talking about more your situation and if it makes sense at that time those in well by the way my team does this what. I'm trying to do my best. It makes sense. We'll have a seat at the at the table and we'll go over some options for you right. One of those options might be an offer And if it works great and if it doesn't it's okay to Totally okay do not work for you. But what i really want to ask you right now mr seller is that i am graded by. Well you feel listened to and taken care of today regardless of whether or not we get this contract. Is it fair to say that. If we walk through this house with you today that you'll give me a video testimonial one way or the other right. Yeah and if we structure our appointments to get video testimonials even we don't get contracts and we left an impact and we can use that testimonial every bit of marketing absolutely the culture part is so important and under under appreciator known talking about sexy topic moran last week run bartlett. Did it killer presentation on what they're doing culture and they're they're creating urban warriors now. You're talking about mastermind. I think in the warrior.

"I wondered for you. Is this something you spend much time on when you're helping people retire, how they'll actually build their days? You know, we do. And interestingly enough, just recently, I heard a short video from a gentleman. Darren Hardy. He has this, uh, daily. Text message or a video message that comes out talking about various topics. It's primarily for business owners and mindset things that nature but this particular one talked about depression. And how your sleep or lack thereof impacts it. And it was interesting because the major study with Harvard and MIT and, um There was Mass General hospital and there was something else out in Colorado. If my memory serves all part of this massive study, and it indicated and determined that the earlier you get up, the less likely you are to be depressed. That's kinda interesting. So they said, Let's say you normally get up at six a.m. and you go to bed at 11. They're not saying go to bed at 11 and just get up an hour earlier. They just say, shift your go to bed time. So you get the same amount of sleep that you normally do. But adjust it so that you get up one hour earlier. And supposedly through this survey, it determined it would cut your risk of depression by 23%. And if you got up and shifted your hours, so let's say you were a night owl went to bed at midnight. Well, if you go to bed at 11 and get up the same, you know, one hour earlier, you'd knock your depression likelihood down by 23% instead of midnight. If you ultimately adjusted, it's at 10 A.m. and get up two hours earlier than what you had been. You would cut your likelihood of depression by 40%. That would that kind of stuck with me. I'm like, Wow, I didn't think there was that much of a difference as to when you get up in the morning, but apparently they're saying to a study of I think it was like 840,000 people. That's a pretty broad based study that it does actually have an impact. I thought that was interesting and interesting that you asked this question. We do talk about people, especially those that got retired, meaning they plan on working for years more, but the boss said, all right, it's time for you to go. And now all of a sudden they're faced with. Wow. I'm retiring like next month, Not three or four years from now. Well, then we have a much more detailed conversation. As to how they're going to transition into the retirement. Now, some have been kind of counting the days to that retirement. They already know what they plan on doing every day when they retire, but many people have not, and it's those people were more concerned with Because they're going to have a tremendous amount of time on their hands. Not just the 40 hours. They worked or more, potentially if they worked 50 hours and 55, But you're commuting time as well. That's all part of it. And we talk about. Well, we're your circle of friends. Is that at work primarily, or is it outside of work? Well, if it's outside of work, we have seen that those folks tend to transition a lot better than the folks that have their friendships primarily at work, because now when they retire, they they All of a sudden they no longer see their best friends. You know, day and day out, so it's much more challenging for them to adjust to their retirement or certainly could be. It's not for everybody. Some people are very flexible and they go. OK, well, yeah, it wasn't overly happy in this job. Anyway. I was looking forward to retirement. Now I'll figure out what I'm going to do next. And, of course, is always what I jokingly called the honey do list. You know, honey, can you do this for me? Honey? Can you do that for me? So that might keep you busy to always keep somebody busy at my house? Yeah, I think I think most people can relate to that. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Okay, So I know Jeff. It sounds like you're talking about this right? You're talking about how you'll spend your Your days, your time in retirement. Where does financial planning come in? When you start that conversation? And that does depend on is this somebody that had been planning for retirement and it's still working, and they're they've got years ahead before they retire versus somebody that abruptly got retired. Because the people that abruptly got retired. We're talking a lot more about how they're going to fill their time because that's what concerns us the most the financial side. I mean, we do that day in day out so we can put a plan together very quickly. But we can't help them fill up all those hours that they used to work, so that's up to them. So we start having that conversation. We have them start to think about it like Well, who's your best friend? Who would you like to spend more time with? What do they like to do? What do you like to do You like to go fishing? Do you like to shoot billiards? You know, do you like to golf? Do you like to just travel? Do you like the hike? There's so many different things that can be done. But a lot of people aren't really focus on that side of things. So we bring that up and say, Hey, what had you consider doing this? We have some folks that are waiting to retire. So they can take more college courses in a totally different field and something that they've always been interested in, but really didn't have the time to pursue, So it's kind of interesting. You know, we have some some pretty cool days. Eric Maskin Associates. Because we meet with great people. Our listeners come into me with us for the complimentary meeting process that we that we offer and we we meet some really cool people and we have We have a lot of fun. We enjoy what we do. We know we're helping people so it makes for a fun day. I bet it does. Jeff and I know you know, we've been talking about mental health here on the show and how that relates to retirement and and planning..

"You know one thing that. When i started working with You guys at my body tutor that jagger's like kinda changed a lot of how i thought about food and that relationship with it was i like every day. I would have a boulevard of ice cream before going to bed. Every single dad have ice cream before going to bed. And we talked about earlier about this idea of like saving up your indulgences or like you know planning them and not just having a thing but as c. Ice cream was an everyday thing. And i think back to like my dad still to this day. My dad has a bowl of ice cream every single night. And when i'm talking bowl a mixing bowl of ice cream every single night and my family growing up by the five court pails of the kemp's ice cream and we'd by two of the thrill of the week. 'cause we this is what you do and so i had this relationship with food where like i just had it every night and remember mad. Who's my specific. you know. Body tutor specific a coach and he asked the question that early on he said. Why do you feel the need to have dessert. Every night and i was like. That's that's just what everybody does like. That's just what people do right. He was like it was just that question asking that i never even thought that was not a normal thing and maybe that's probably the normal thing which is why majority of americans overweight but it was such a hard thing for me like emotionally to pull that away to not have dessert every single night and i was angry. What i'm like. screw you like. What might of an. I deserve it right i. I worked hard to that a good hard day. I- -ccomplish lots. I need to make myself feel better before night. Because i wanted this This ice cream. But as soon as i recognize that pattern it started to change and now today like i mean and think about dessert before but i mean once in a while desert again if it's a special thing and sometimes i cheat their and and you know we'll have desert but it's not. It's not an expected thing. Federally know how that fits in here. But i just thought i'd like that made a big impact on me as well. Yeah i mean listen. So much of our behavior is ingrained right. We don't think twice. it's from growing up. It's our parents you know whether it's with money whether it's food right at our you know for a scarcity mindset an abundance mindset. That's ingrained in us and for you growing up. Having dessert was part of life. And now as you know you're older you have a ton of responsibility of a lot of things on your plate no pun intended. You know you're on she pun intended You know using ice cream is how you rewarded yourself right. At the end of the day and one of the things we work on his. Well how else can you reward yourself and listen. There's nothing wrong with having dessert every night. But i it goes back into this idea of negotiable versus non-negotiables. And if you're unwilling to change that then we would work on the things you we're willing to change and that's really important. Yeah that's really good man. yeah Reminds me of the consistency thing. How that works both ways. Doesn't it tell. The compound effective that book. The compound effect by darren hardy twenty my all.

"Looking from a doctor's. I on how to respond. Things is the truth is in. You just said it was uragan and thank you for sharing that because the only truly thing in our control people we like to rent control or we like to think that we control macro politics and governments in the neighbor next door and our wives and kids. You can't control any of that and at the only the only power you have is your thoughts your actions in your attitudes your choices. That's the only power you have is your power of choice. You can choose to get upset or blame a politician or blame. Something you don't believe in or the other political party or heck even blamed. God it doesn't you can blame whoever or whatever but at the end of the day your response to it your attitudes towards it and you know you could ask yourself. Why is this happening to me or was is happening for me. And what are you gonna do with your family or your neighbor or the person you touch that day or the person you talk to or the clients that you serve or your work so that your sphere of influence the things that you can your attitude and actions and choices control over. I think it's a very wise statement. And i think people don't remember that at the end of the day. There's always a choice no matter what the situation is. You always have a choice choices choices certainly something. You have control of your own choices. That's wonderful and i like how you said Take one smoke step. Pick one seeing our our big fan of giants klaas work than these could tommy cabinets which his his whole falana is just told me. that's why. tell me cabinet. Saw datum is the smallest part of matter. Just one little thing and if you consistently do one little thing every day at one little thing to it and then all of a sudden you look back over months. Oh museum wow. I've achieved enormous amount of things. Because i've done thirty one little things die by. H diana's accumulated the ancient saying that rome wasn't built at bay but it was built. Rick i br was built brick by brick and then all of a sudden buildings did appear i love james clears work quoting throughout legendary and also like your take it a step further. Something darren hardy says is that you know these small daily actions. Maybe it's your starting gratitude practice. Maybe it's your stop checking social media at night. Or maybe it's that i'm gonna read five pages just some tiny action. I'm gonna walk four hundred yards or one hundred yards. Start somewhere that these haase's things these positive actions these positive habits they pay compounding interest like if you invest a dollar a day a dollar next day dollar the next day you know. It's not three hundred sixty five dollars. At the end of the year it's substantially newark because it's compound in every day for the positive and so i've i love all those analogy so much because they are true. And if you don't mind me sharing this year. Because i think this is important when people feel stuck. Here's the easiest way to get unstuck. The fastest is to eliminate that one negative action habit or saying in your life immediately. It is ridiculously hard to do. But if you want an instantaneous. I feel better. I sound better. I looked better. I just am better and you know immediately. What's the one thing in your life that you eliminated it with ten. Your life in a positive way is social media is drinking is at pornography. Is it negative. Self talk is at eating too much. Is it watching twenty. Five hours net flicks. I don't know what it is. But you do and i do. In the reason you wanna limit is by the way where your biggest insecurity and fear lies however if you want an instant instant instant fast i feel better eliminate that one thing. Here's the flipside. What we're talking about is adding the positive adding the nutrition adding the goodness adding the wisdom into your life. That's the stuff of building muscles and getting in shape physically emotionally mentally spiritually and adding those small rates goodness nutrition or whatever habit that's building the long-term muscles so getting rid of the negative is an instant instant fix the hardware is starting to add the positive staying consistent with it. So that's an analogy. I like to use them. Yeah that's a great one. I'll come back to that in a moment. But they run wasn't built in a day it was built brick by brick thing. I heard somebody else than say. But i did lie igrek every day so he did not sit back. I will run wasn't built into dice. I'm just going to wait until tomorrow. You've gotta license that that's a common mistake is anytime you say. We'll start on monday. That no start now. The moment you'd like go start now okay. I'm gonna start exercising on monday. No go walk out the door and walked down to the end of the street and walk back started it. That's it and and you feel good about yourself and that's an analogy that i think that comes out of some of james cleared some. I'm not sure if it's in his book. Or if it's come out of these newsletter. But i i was in a fight during the early days of the pandemic when we I used usually go out with a bunch of buddies balk riding every morning and in the early days of the pandemic way would not allowed to go out with others sir. It became a solo thing and then wintertime along was dock in the morning it was called and also well. There's nobody else to hold me accountable. And that sort of the social part of its missing out just turnover invade debica slate and that he developed into a habit so that for several months. I actually didn't have outback riding. And then i'll feel bad about myself. And i got into this data beat myself up. There's another day. I didn't do it. And then of course. When i did go out riding fitness had slipped and so it was much hotter and it was less enjoyable and what i took away from john. Cleese book was dot focus on. I've got to go out for my one.

"Contact and focusing on what we did what is important than focusing williams. It's interesting because i know i've had my downs in the podcast space. That sometimes i felt like is a lot of work and other times. I was like tired and i don't feel like i'm getting the credit i want and all that but what i do is i just keep doing the next right thing. And it starts to build. And it's just a little bit like you know. In the world of investment we talk about compound interest and now warren buffett sitting on a huge amount of money because he left his money in the market to compound over sixty years right. Yes the impact. The compound effect great book. By way by darren hardy. The compound effect doesn't actually happen until the later periods. The impact is yes. It you know you may go from to viewers two four eight to sixteen. It seems very small in the beginning but then when it starts to compound so i think the lesson that i take away from you is just stay at it. Do the best you can with the audience. You have and what you've got and it will come over time all right. Well it's great to get to know you. And now it's time to share your worst investment ever and since no one ever goes into their worst investment thinking it will be tell us a bit about the circumstances leading up to and tell your story so my bush investment will be needed a bit surprising so it's not completely about money here and as i said like i'm from india it's a second largest in population of the china and ben coming to the population of engineers so in your obsolete majority of the people who choose engineering in india or other getty options and not just because it is their passion it is their only option so for many and the reason why many of the engineers here are jobless. So not only here. I think i'll adore. You can consider like more of the people data in which there are more number of unemployment people exist is engineering so similarly i hydros engineering and computer science stream like how majority of indian shoes and i didn't find anything. Limited with the current industry needs in my curriculum..

"Jackie chan understands english. But just to have been of well. If i can keep communicating. They'll get it and that doesn't work that way. So just because you're communicating a lot doesn't mean everybody understands it. A book on that called winning with accountability. Written by darren hardy as a great Section there about be clear on communication and expectations. It's a wonderful book on to to dig into get behind that myth number four performance culture drives execution. You're thinking wait a second. What do you mean if you have a performance. Culture should drive execution because we just said in the number. One execution equals alignment is a math. So now you're like. But if i have a culture of performance does not drive execution. Well the problem is they. Don't focus on a couple of key factors of behaviors that make that okay to execute. Don't reward agility. They don't reward teamwork. They don't reward ambition. Everybody is so focused on the reward. Is going to be as if i win or not if i achieved his goal. And that's it and that's all of the focus goes so when we say performance culture that means they set targets in. You hit him and they don't aren't really concerned how you got there. You hit him. And that's the basis of promotions in history. And things like that. We've talked many times in in other podcasts. About how you're the best salesperson you're have the biggest portfolio you're making the most money so therefore it will of course you should be the the sales manager right. No if you don't know how to lead people if you don't have to teach in out of you can take what you did and really teach it to others. That's a different story. But if you're just based on performance you really got a hired gun mentality or free agency teichmann. Football were just need a really awesome wide receiver for a year to rather than building a team a good team culture. So just because you have performance doesn't mean it's going drive execution it can be a real false number number if You're not really paying attention to what's going on around you..

"Today i am in Is midvale with louis hammer. How you louis great. Great good no we were. You told me the story before and you're joking. Obviously we're recording this on a recording device. And you told me you had you got three patriarchal blessings because of the threat. That's briefly tells us story. Just generally i. I wasn't that i got the the patriarch after. Like he's been doing it for thirty five forty years and he's like i can't find the blessing and he called so reich. You can't find it. So then i had to get another one. And he got the tape recorder out and put the mic on and gave the blessing and then he's like what just check to make sure that it worked and he rewound and unplayed it again and it just was like Testing one two three testing them with a scary thing with me goes. Are you still live at might want at. Ag that's pretty scary. Yeah and then the third one third one talk now. Most patriots have a backup and a backup the thanks. Yeah yeah that's great. Well maybe nobody will hear this. This just be for my benefit but it is recording. I'm seeing it counts so this this is good so give us a little bit background. You recently released as a bishop. Yeah two years. I got really about two years ago. Almost to the day in april uncle so april of nineteen and i live in saratoga springs married for twenty five years twenty six years coming up and got three kids one on a mission now comes home in a couple months from spain and yup cool nice and you served in greece serving greece. That's cool yeah. You don't hear that very often. Yeah and probably back then. You didn't i mean you're not an old man louis. But i'm just saying i think it was like number eighty missionary like the eightieth or seventieth. Missionary work to go to greece. And how's your greek is terrible yeah. It's all great to me like terrorists terrible so and we've been right. We had some mutual friends. That connection sue times and i've always appreciated like just being in those circles of discussion and things with you and i always thought you know and then i found out later. You're a bishop. Unlike louis be good fit. Because you've really made the meeting speak. You've you didn't just go to college. They gave great my education's done but you've made a life of education. Yeah yeah. I've been self employed for eighteen years own my own company for fifteen right and that when you when you're self employed and especially if you're running a company like you feel like you to get keep ahead of things that are changing and the skill sets that year competition a very competitive industry. I'm at various. Yeah yeah yeah title insurance. It's super competitive. And so yes. I just like a read hundreds of books on waiter ship or you know communications anything. That helped me run my business better and i need a lot of help so i had to read a lot of books and i've attended several trainings. Some of the best training in the world. I think from tony robbins. A darren hardy to john maxwell just stuff that really impacted me as a business owner and yeah. So that's been my you know in those trains. You'll stop these aren't like pay eighty dollars and spent a weekend with his these series investments to really develop as a one hundred percent. That's thousands of dollars you know some of the strains are six grand. Just walk in the door. Yeah we have a lot yet but worth it because their insight and the nuances and certain skills that you just don't realize you know and it's the fascinates me may be having this conversation as leaders like you that you've had years and years even decades of applying some these leadership principles in the in a professional setting. And then your calls bishop and naturally you're going to default to what works that the applied elsewhere and in that makes you a more powerful leader. Yeah yeah exactly. And i think you know you know just thinking about this like jesus when a sock into peter. We talked about being fishers of men because related to his vocation. You know what he did. He could understand it by fishing. You know and so we kinda when i realizes not that you run your ward like business but you learn the skills in the business that actually apply that are universal whether regardless of the environment into my home. I'd learned skills from those trainings and all that from my work. That helped me be a better father and better husband but yeah and every business or church service it's a people business right. Your attitudes and perspectives in a lot of these principles apply one hundred percent. Yeah yeah anything with leading up to your services as bishop. That would be worth mentioning. Was it something that i mean. What do you remember from that transition into being a bishop one ever member just being feeling overwhelmed. Some of the neural be overwhelmed because but realizing you know in my business. I really what i do in business. I just saw problems. All i do you know and so what i realized as a bishop is the i got to be able to be good at solving problems. Helping people solve them in a way that took the burden off of me but it's overwhelming because you think they get to do it differently but problems are still problems and just what you said. They're the same person whether they're in your business or their. Their problems are created the same. They need a similar resolution. It just one is about their spiritual growth. One is about the personal growth so it really is like what i felt was. Am i really going to be able to use everything. I learned and just kind of approach it with that or is it going to be something else and then i kind of thought. Well i was called. He knew who. I was just going to do what i know. You know and just kind of not running like a business but use the same principles that i've learned in my business in my ward. Yeah and i'm curious coming into a calling that a leadership role where you have so much experience in the professional world the trainings. You've gone to the principles the books you've read it. Was it difficult times to because you can walk in. There were a lot of conferencing. Oh well i'm a manager. I'm a leader. I can do this. I've proved myself in the professional world. Like how do you create space still for for that spiritual side of it with the humidity side of it. Well it's interesting. Because i kind of felt that thinking. Oh i got this. I can't how hard can it be. I have one hundred four. He's like how hard can this be. You know that like when you get in the office and someone breaks down in a different way for me. An a business. I just fire you or whatever if you know it's not you it's me it's not going to let you go you. It's a whole different aspect because it's really what they you know in that calling that person's entire life is it like it's the life blood. It's it's just who they are their identity at a higher at a deeper deeper level than i'm going to say just a job percents right so when i remember talking to someone and hearing the pain that they were in than hearing the pain the how the pain got started. And all of these things. And i'm like man. This is not going to be fixed with the title policies. That you can't fix us what the and i can't fix this with firing somebody or i can't like i realized right away that i'm not gonna be able to do this entirely like humbled me real quick like you. This exactly like. I do this work. Nice is it's good to have that dynamic you humble and and you discover you learn more right. Yeah yeah yeah that's awesome. Well you know typically a esque individuals to write down principles that maybe we can get our discussion by and there's a lot of that jumped out to me like okay. This can be great. Like the first one leader vulnerability and this you know. Vote ability sort of buzzword these days like no we need more vulnerability and and everybody sort of naza ahead. Yeah yeah sure. But like in the context of an organization especially a volunteer organization where we don't wanna offend anybody or make it weird for anybody so he just about.
