Give us the strength. Give us just the insight on where to take this conversation. It will have maximum impact on those listening Joel. I like a prayer to beginning of a podcast. It's the first time we've been on. I've never done it before. But Dang good to anchor. Let's start there. Thank you so dave. The book is get out of your own way which I think. A lot of people struggle doing that. Oftentimes we are our own worst enemy and I WANNA talk about. What's backup? Start ABOUT THE. You know the reason why you wrote the book. The back story of what led to that in the introduction to the book he kind of shared this really transparent invulnerable backstory of let what your life had become and how that low point was actually the catalyst that propelled you to writing this book. So why don't start their share that with the audience and then we'll kind of walk through some of the content. Sounds good so I left. Would I knew for what I needed? I had from the outside a job. That was the envy of many the thing I thought I was choosing for the entirety of my routes toward it that in ascending to this place inside of the Walt Disney Company. Where after seventeen years of time I for the last seven of my experience there had become the head of sales at the studio in charge of selling movies to movie theaters. And in the time near the end of my journey the acquisitions of Pixar Marvel studios and Lucasfilm created an abundance of Leverage. An abundance of your blessings. Red Carpets access fun but also because of the quality of the team that I had surrounded me the executives that were leading me in this Ip. That was unlike anything else. I was in a position where I had stray grades without having to study. I had the trappings of this title. This pay this. You know life from the outside. That was mismatched to the unfulfilled. Feeling of person who was not in a position to fully utilize his potential and it was happening at the same time that my wife was fully exploiting every single gift that she'd been afforded was running towards personal development and in embracing the tools that were helping her move passing. Zaidi challenge some limiting beliefs in some bad coping mechanisms. She's growing into the best version of herself as I'm descending into the worst version of myself. I'm digging this trench this this muck that I feel stuck in as I'm on this bridge from thirty let me ask you this as this is happening. In your watching your spouse you love and adore kind of go in one direction. While you're feeling unfulfilled. How did that many feel frustrated and begrudging of her awesomeness which is terrible things right like you should want to cheer on your partner? Being the most amazing version of themselves and she getting up at five in the morning and believing that she could charge and take on the day and having the mindset that she did and the motivation that existed just naturally inside of her was so contrasted against how I felt stuck that when she kept getting better. I've felt worse for her progress. It's like if you're not grown together then creates conflict. Yeah and the I mean and it ended up coming to ahead in part because of this divergent trajectory that each of us found ourselves on where she's growing I'm not and she had the hardest and most important conversation of relationship on the back end of me not showing up well for our family vacation where she asked. Hey as every day I choose growth this most important commodity in my life. Continue to become better tomorrow and as you stay stock or for really being honest descend into lesser version of yourself and we are on these diverging paths in the Delta between US continues to grow farther away from each other closer. Will we in three months still go on dates in a year? Still make out in a three year period where we still be married and I knew the answer. The answer was no. We won't be and it was the recognition of that. The cost the price of inaction that acted as the biggest leverage point for me to actually take action man. If I don't do something drastic meaningful radical I will find myself too far down. The path of irreconcilable differences to salvage my own marriage. So talk about some of the low points. What were some of the things you were doing behavior exemplifying that causes? She's real not but let's give us a clear picture of where your well. My biggest negative coping mechanism truly was alcohol In that I've been the right so like I have a long day. I'm frustrated by the absence of fulfilment. I'm struggling even in the midst of making a decision to take some change with assuming some new identity and the worry what other people might think in my casual relationship with alcohol couple of drinks here and there every day is now turning into something. That's muting the pain that I'm feeling but alcohol like any negative coping. Mechanism isn't a local anesthetic. Commuting the pain and the joy. It's meaning the pain and eliminating the possibility that I might grow at all from embracing the discomfort that I'm currently experiencing and so- rewiring myself to find a different set of coping mechanisms and more than anything do appreciate the cost the expense of alcohol on keeping me stuck in a place that. I was trying to leave right like I start. Having some experiences that exposed to this reality this connection that exists between growth and fulfilment and at the foundation of this thing that I'm feeling this unfulfillment it's this recognition of the absence of me. Being a posture to grow had an abundance of things team leadership. I P that left me in a position to not fail in in the absence of being able to fail. I was guaranteed that I wouldn't grow here. I've started making some steps where I'd like to grow as I start to turn the corner and decide to take a path. That's different change that trajectory. But when I hit the bumps of growth when I hit the waves of growth of having left the harbour of security for the waves that exist growth shows up I start muting. The waves start muting the opportunity to actually fully get the benefit of the thing. I was seeking in the first place and so I had turned in a bottle for a pair running shoes. I started working on physical fitness and things that would allow me to push myself physically to process things mentally to process things emotionally and that shift has been men one of the biggest and most important in the two years of time that I've made the switch from WHO I west who I am. Yeah so I wanNA talk about Because I think alcohol is so readily available to easy escape for a lot of people in the lie in the book and again this is getting out of your own way in the book go through. Nineteen different lies That we hold onto that. They're only true because we make them true or they really have no truth but we hold onto like they are and they ended up. We end up getting in our own way right so the lie that you're talking about here is that you know a a drink will make this better than I think. There's so many times in my life where stressed out problems home problems in the business overwhelmed. And it's like is this and then you know a couple of drinks turns into a couple more and then next thing you know they'd yourself into a deeper hole and you have more problems. My escape from my work is now for drinks deep and causing a problem at home with my family because my wife and he's about the kids that not really state to be doing that. What'S INTERESTING IS I. I'd convince myself whether it was modelled by my examples. Growing up has just the thing you do when things get stressful or a thing that convinced myself to justify the behavior. I truly believed. Oh you just have a drink. You knocked the rough edges off of a long day and it's better and what's real. Is the problems that you are struggling with that provoked. The interest in drinking are not solved at all with the drink and in fact when use really pivot from this casual to less than casual relationship. You're now compounding the problems that you were drinking for in the first place so it doesn't need to be drinking by the way right. Doing one can tip into a place. Gabby binge on Netflix could be porn. Sex in general could be any of these places that turning to to try to escape from the real world instead of dealing with national probably kicking the can down the road. It's not going to solve itself masking it with whatever it is region for so face the thing. Don't add problems to the facts so get people's strategies for freezing the thing. Well I I understand why I felt the compulsion to drink in the first place and so for me. It took understanding that. Oh I feel triggered because of this insecurity I feel triggered because of this fear are these insecurities are fears of real right? I just accepted them as being capital. T. Truths I was drinking because of my belief in them but I hadn't asked a better set of questions around whether or not there actually was truth behind the things that were provoking me to drink in the first place that was one to. I had to be really honest with every single person in my community about decisions that I was making. That weren't serving my interest as a husband as a father as a leader of a team. And if you are struggling. I want to honor your struggle. It is a recognition of your humanity. Struggle is universal and there were times in the midst of my drinking to try and take care of my problems that I wouldn't raise my hand to say you know what I've had a couple too many drinks on a couple too many days in a row but once I did and create a cirque could create a circle of accountability in my friends. In my wife it changed the way that one held shame for it and it changes the way that I felt alone in that struggle because as soon as I raised my hand had other people saying you know what I'm also struggling with this thing. Normalize the struggle a little bit. Here's some tips and tricks that I use to try and move past a thing that I was struggling with. So if you're in the midst to struggle and you're unwilling to own it one you'll be shackled to the shame of it in the silence of your head in believing that you're there by yourself and to you're almost guaranteeing that you can't get help and right help for me. Showed up in friends coming around me but if it's a bad enough problem maybe that you need to go sit in a meeting right. Help might be that you got to get into a program. But you can't get help and you will definitely not feel like you are in this with others if you keep it in the dark. Yeah for sure kind of accepting the. There's an issue is step one right. If you don't address it or believe that it is a problem then you're never going to seek the path of resolution for me those who listening If you've been listening to this box while you know that last October I decided to cut off hall my life completely and I did that before. One main reason was a problem not a problem. Ninety percent of the time it was a problem two percent of the time. Yeah and at thirty six years old. I was at a stage in my life and with my family where I don't into percent problems. Yeah it's and it's one of those things where like nobody deal dinner. Have Bigger Guy. It was no problem for me date night with my wife and I have six years. You know at dinner during our time span and it wasn't even those times it was an issue. It was the times where we'd planned something family wise and then alcohol end up being evolved.

Working with your spouse. I feel like married and working in business. We'll part has been super fun. He is legitimately my best friend. We could hang out one hundred hours like we have so much fun together. Like, it's dumb. And we were a little nervous about who. If we work together. We're going to select other, and it's been incredible, truthfully. It's been incredible school. I think what is super transparent. There is a part. There's a part of me that I said something earlier, which might have like clued you into this is it it feels like I've heard to work so hard to get to wear him. And he has just he would tell you the same thing. He's he's super charming, and he's super smart, and he's had a very easy road like from childhood to where he is stay set a very easy road this job. But he's he's worked very hard. But not the same way. But not an he'd tell you that like, you know, if you don't have resources, if you don't have money, if you don't have an education, if you don't and you're building a business in Los Angeles, you're going to do that by the like hustle, right? And so there is a part of me. That's like he he skipped the line. Seems like skip John. And I'm like, I mean that sounds so my gosh, that's so ego and terrible. But that's the truth is that's the hardest part to navigate for me is like all the sudden we're in this together. Like, you know, we all of a sudden like, it's it's this is a silly thing. But it's not solely to me. We started doing podcasts together, you know, we together. A couple months ago. Yeah, we got to podcast in the top ten world. Yeah. It's crazy. Crazy.

But you didn't help with any of this. Did you know? No, no, no. I mean, this is like a lot of our story. But like, no. And so that like that. But that is again. Maims? But it's also like that is a hundred percent ego talking. I have to say it's been like a really art season. I just trying to get over. It was like how is this for me? Like, I'll be super on it. So y'all went to fishing trip, and you want about it. I was not at all. I understand that.

Dave, I love to ask all the data that I get on the podcast, what type of advice? Do you have for that new dad or for that about the beef far who's out there listening? Number one piece of advice would be to have confidence that you were given these children's so that they would be fathered by you. And that your style your way, even if it departs from the way that your dad pairs at you or the way that your mother-in-law things, you should other or the way that society says is normal. You have to do you have to do what is best and right for you. And not worry about what anybody else thinks your kids are going to have only one experience when it comes to the data. They have and the upbringing that they have, and it will be yours, and that will be the one that they needed to get them from where they are whether going very well said, I love the message.

I don't really told them yet. We're going to move taxes. I certainly hadn't totally my Disney, but they gotta do some cool stuff. And you know, we're way I'm happy that that transition away from Disney creates hopefully a little bit more normal set aside that they get to go now. Yeah, I've seen some of those post you put up there over the holidays about how your kids Christmas list included stuff that runs on gasoline and all that. So how do you keep the kids grounded, especially with all the success that you've had in that Rachel has enjoyed how do you kind of keep them grounded in what type of disciplinary in? You is that. Well, I mean rounded for sure is like an every single day kind of thing in. In like trying to appreciate and have a little bit of perspective for how to focus on rats you'd for what they have. And how does show up for those that maybe don't have as much as they do? So we we're crazy Rachel, and I about gratitude practice that certain and our day starts for ends our day. Or if you spend the day looking for ten things to be grateful for and have to then at the end of your day. It just changed the way you look at the day 'cause you're on the hunt all day progressing, and so we with our kids tried to have them approach their day in the same way. And at the end of the day. We're trying to push for what they have refill hearts for, you know, trying to keep them granted also is giving them responsibilities around the house or holding them accountable or things like making their bad every single day or doing their homework every single day, or you know, things that like every kid has to evidently do. But you know, if if. Rachel ends up creating something that ends up selling well, or we have a business, you know, that picking up it's not gonna change the way that they have.

"There isn't technology of animal, then and technology alternately ends up being a bit of leverage that we get the hold for good behavior. So we were getting ready for school this morning. One of my sons was having a little bit of a little bit of trouble with respect. So he lost -nology for a day when he found that out the continued to struggle with respect. So we. Lost it for two days. So, you know, like, if it's the first thing we go to as a nickel try, and, you know, behavior, modify as it were, and it's very effective. 'cause man they love it's a yeah. Yeah. I'll tell you what we use that fortnight game is a sort of currency to get our kids motivated to do just about anything we want. Now. One thing. I talk about quite a bit on the podcast is that I drive for Uber on the weekends. And it's cool to see that the twenty year olds they're using the technology not that drink and drive. But once they get in the car, they don't talk to one another. It's always their faces a right into the screen, and there's certainly a breakdown in communication and social skills. And that's kind of sad to see. Yeah. Did you see I? Agreed that I definitely use technology to monitor the kind of conversations that my kids are having maybe when they get older I will stop doing this. But I do and I my hurts. My bit hurts, my heart to be honest. Like, I see the way that these kids in tests are so casual and how they can go at each other. And part of what the breakdown has created is there's an in humanity in the back and forth that allows you to save as that you just wouldn't say somebody else's base. Let alone, you know, articulate in in in a good way. But man, people being mean on the internet or people being mean and Texas something that doesn't just happen to grownups Instagram accounts. It's happening people are nine and ten eleven years old and middle school right to craziness. Yeah. And all this stuff is still relatively new, and it's always a constantly changing. And I'm just trying to keep up with all of it. But tell me Dave you work for. Disney for a long time. So do your kids have a favorite Disney movie that they all share in common or and what were some of the perks of having a dad who works for Disney. What movie do they let I mean? Like, they are like. Johnny come lately kind of kids like their favorite. Disney movie is the last movie like almost every time. I if I were to ask them right now with movies, they would probably say Reckitt Ralph too because it was the last thing that they got to see they're much like, what's what's most recently been in the fans. My job was definitely wanna came with weird. Cool perks that they probably were pretty normal that now that they don't exist. Hopefully things that they can actually appreciate they didn't appreciate them before. I I got to work on it wasn't just Disney, but marvel Pixar and Lucas and the busy animation films. And and with that, the, you know there were there were premiers and there were red carpets on those premieres. And so my kids I put up a picture just last week.

"Us into foster care was one that came with the yielding to uncertainty just being a part of our life, and what ended up happening in a really great for us kind of way was in that uncertainty. It was hard and that hard season that we ended up having to go through pets at our marriage. But showed how strong it could be tested our faith faith. But until it's really tested. Have you know, and it's for kids it, really showcase. How resilient they could be. It's not to say that it wasn't difficult because they they're small humans. They act other smoggy we had kids in our house. They became close to them. And then when it was time for them to leave we in each instance, didn't get a lot of notice. So it was hard for them. But it helped us as parents appreciate how resilient they could be. And it actually gave us in having seen how much each of us, including then we all grew so much it gave us the confidence. The find other situations take responsible risk or shoes uncertainty. So that they might be the beneficiaries of grow themselves as for example, we when we moved to Texas. This is a camp culture, and I just did not going to summer games, but they have some really great summer camps here in Texas in an attempt to acclimate the kids to this new place that were living to make some new friends. We've found the summer camp where they should sleep away for three weeks. They don't left for like a ninety anywhere. So the for me the person who, you know, wants to make sure that they don't get hurt a big leap to throw them into an environment. That was a little uncertain for three weeks at the time. But it was unbelievably great for them. It was transformational in part because they were in that independence for to be accountable for themselves in a way that sometimes when we are around them, as parents, we don't necessarily push them to be accountable himself in part because there were plenty of opportunities for rips. Like, I would have probably kept them from climbing to tala branch or jumping into a river. That is moving in a way that this campaign courage in doing it, it let them see that they could be confident in themselves in a way that frankly that might not have allowed them to do it. So it's a long. Way to get from adoption jury foster care conversation into knowing the camp, but the the uncertainty of that posture journey showed us that we need to find more answer before. It's definitely. Yeah. And I think that's important day. Because listen, I think I fall into the trap here to of putting our kids in organized sports at such a young age.

And so we fostered two girls in the beginning of two thousand sixteen they came and then were reunited with their parents after our Boston's done we satisfied the fostering requirement. We moved to adoption we a call about twin girls that were available for option at five days old. We brought them home twins or no joke. It was super hard. And and beautiful all the same time.

Interestingly was probably the first time in our lives that we saw the fruit that came from choosing uncertainty.

They started that new year last year we have like a mantra for the guy sort of two years ago. I didn't call it. A mantra is just here our focus yet here are like three things that I really wanna focus on a not a firm, but you know, just say to myself every day this year. So I those for me this last year were life is the life is always happening for me. Not to me in the other one was more action less thinking in. So the the ratio there. I repeat myself as make sure you to eighty percent action twenty percent thinking today, and then the other one was yet. The other one was I am open. I'm grateful. I'm infinitely capable in these things that came out of my Wasco. Experience. You know, I experienced being just generally open to kind of whatever would happen that like not not holding things with such a tight closed fist. But kind of having opened the poem my hand that and gratefulness in capability that the the kind of capability and potential, you know, that that I have I experienced those two level that unite I never realized I had before. And so those kind of became a mantra reminding me every day to sort of hold things with an open hand, you know, be basically chill just just like chill the subtle art subtle art of not giving an F is great book kind of around that concept being grateful. You know, wanting what I what I already have. And then this this belief that I'm infinitely capable, you know, I can I can do in have anything I want in life. Through desire, hard, work perseverance taking taking action on it. Yeah. So those were my mantras slash warriors. I think the main one was life is always happening for you to you. That was one that I kind of had in. Then I did I did steal your open. Grateful one infinitely capable after you shared it with me. I also Richard I say to myself often. It sounds it. Sounds cheesy. Like, it's almost a little bit cringe for me too. Talk to people. But even do even have like kind of hand motions to you know, when I say open like, I just have my hands my side with my palms facing out the noise. Same great fly bring them up and sort of prayer. You know, bring the palms together. Like, I'm praying and then I'm infinitely capable like my hands. Just go back down to my side. But like my fists or closed like I'm ready to just resolute. Yeah. Resolu- just kind of take on take on the world. But really just puts me in a great mindset saying that audibly to yourself having your sort of sub-conscious here that ver three hundred sixty five days straight, you know, plus the. Yeah. Very powerful thing. Yeah. Okay. So okay. So setting goals for the year. So we how we do it in in our families. We have like a mantra or information, or whatever you wanna call it. And. That typically goes like at the top of our gingham goals. And then we have our affirmations like we have education that we we say in the morning, I like fifteen of those they're sort of a mixture of. Yeah. Excuse me offer in goals or not after missions values, yet, negotiable value and values. You can there's no this isn't like an exact science. There's no one way to do this. And so you can take what we're talking about in just like some people have their values listed out like my I value integrity on. The I guess it's the same thing. But you know, hard work that sort of thing. Minor different. They're sort of. Yeah. This this fusion of values and after mations, so I say, I'm a man of integrity. I always tell the truth. My word is my bond that that's a anathema Asian, but has value in there, like value integrity. So I'm like fifteen of those every day.
