Always love good. Hustle grit entrepreneurial story. But i'm really curious about your mindset. Because i think your mindset can teach us a lot talked a lot of people on the show and if there's anything that comes out or they always say what did you learn from doing this for eight years and it's always about the to nasty right is less about. The talent talents kind of a given is the tenacity that kind of separates people. What do you what do you think when you hear that. I used to spend them very similar. said The talent also will succeed with hustle without talent succeeds beyond talent without hustled. I used to hear that. So it's like the examples of people that weren't necessarily the most talented in the world. The thing that they did but they hustle and they were everywhere with their thing and you saw them succeeding. You know i mean. I live in an era of soldier. Boy is eligible is not the most talented rapper. He was really the one that solidified for me. Like wait to say soldier boy can make all this. Money is not the the most talented rapper. however he made he was everywhere. he hustled. Like no one else you know. So even though he didn't necessarily have the talent that a drake has he was everywhere and he still got the check. Mec- products that may not necessarily be the most revolutionary product. But the way they kitchen may have a product is better all the time complaining man. They sold that on my products. Even better you know man. If only i if only you you think that your product being better or your singing voice being better or you being prettier to yourself you think that's the thing that's not the thing that's what your mom and dad gave in other thing is what do you do with that. How do you move with what you have. And if you hustle. You likely are not going to succeed. So yeah i've heard a lot brought up
Discussing Startup Struggles With the Founders of Teleport
"Now as it been a struggle working together like you know best friends all the time and now it's a business and its money has that how has it changed your relationship and as been a struggle I'd say in terms of has been a struggle working together. I'd say no. It's the only thing that's been. That's made the struggle bearable or or easier. I'd say starting a business particularly startup. any business is one of the most brutally humbling experience. You'll ever go through and if you don't have not only passion for what you're doing shared very common objective between the team of what you're trying to accomplish and maybe even more importantly in a maniacal frame of delayed gratification. I think that might be one of the biggest ones where specifically you're starting a software company. These take things. Take a lot of time to build to develop and when you're trying to build an organization that's gonna withstand something like ovid or more importantly the next decade in prosper and grow your. You're not just building a little product here in there. You're not building something that's going to get a quick hits out drop shipping. You're not doing affiliate marketing. It's it's not something where your you know your your fruit. Labor's gonna come next month. It's something where you're knowingly going into an experience where you're going to start building for the next year possibly more and you might not get a big win a big hit of gratification or relief. A reason of why. You're doing this for a long time. And i think that's the reason why most people probably failed because they just give up just so hard so i'd say that's Yeah that's my answer is really. It's it's about grit in sticking with it and finding someone equally as crazy as you who who wants to do that and believes that underlying
Why You Don't Need to Love What You Do
"When i started my entrepreneur journey about nineteen years ago. I really struggled with starting a business that i could stick with for a long period of time because i was convinced or i was told that i have to love it every moment and it has to be my passion. It has to be my calling. And it's so grandiose it so hard to do something that you love every single day and then i realized that's a bunch of bs you don't need to do you love most people. Don't even the most highly successful people in the book. Grit by angela. Wf she talks about olympic athletes swimmers in particular she interviews all of them and she asked him the question. Do you love swimming pretty logical question. I mean if you're a gold medalist you probably love swimming. Riots your passion. The answer was very interesting. This particular gold medallist said. Do i love swimming. Are you asking me if i love waking up at four in the morning so i can jump into a cold pool and spend two hours doing laps looking at nothing but a blue line on the bottom of the swimming pool floor having a really restricted diet. Non being able to eat what. I love having to study film having to train six to eight hours a day to work towards one event every four years. No of course. I don't love that. But i'm willing to do that because i love being champion. I love being great at what i do. And that answer was goal to me because that's exactly the reality of the world. That's the reality of success. People will put up with hard work things that they would never do. The right mind because it's painful. Why do they do it because they want to win because they want to be successful because they want comes with that success so if you wake up every morning and you are not smiling ear to ear every minute of the day when you do the work you need to do for your business. It doesn't mean you're in the wrong business. It doesn't mean you can't be successful.
Preview: British GT and BRDC British F3
"It seems a long time ago now but in pre krona virus world bris. Gt attracted a sellout grid for twenty twenty. Before then lost a number of entries by the time this season actually underway and then by the time of the some five hundred phenomena it was backed up bumper field again since then. There's been a change in the rules. Concerning drive at ratings which ruled out the successful silver silver combinations in. Gt three loss. So how would you say the series assault faring. Up heading into this season or steaming you could say in some ways british. Tt's almost back to normal with pro-am pairings. Going the right wins again. When i lost counted Twelve gt three entries schedule for this year from six manufacturers which is a pretty decent effort all told fourteen. Cars from from eight different manufacturers. Gd for it's a tricky when you can look at it. Two different ways and say actually british teased on well to get. The grit has an equally. You could say well should be higher. But then the caveat to that is perhaps we were spoiled before the pandemic and this is just the reality of Of what motorsport in the international sense is like at the moment. I mean i know you wrote a column recently for the magazine talking about the pent up. Demand of club racing and the bump grids there but gt racing is quite a bit more expensive. When you look at the piece of kit drives going out there with njit three ending easy for you mentioned there about the silver silver pairings being banned last year if anything was a bit of an outlier in that sense given the there were a few drivers that were looking to the european series or Had been planning to do something else. Wed than the pandemic hit and plans changed in quite a lot of the silver entries that we ended up with last year. Were were very last minute. Affairs then ended up dominating the season than we only had four races which are actually won by pro-am perrin's all the rest were were silvers.
New Tesla Powerwall, China Protest, Volkswagen Investigation
"Year and stay. We've got some news. On tesla energy. A new energy product actually called the power while plus we'll go through the details on that then we also have an update on the situation on the protest in china and some news on volkswagen slash volkswagen. I stay for tesla stock today especially in a downmarket. Tessa finishing up almost five percent. I green day sense earnings to seven hundred nine dollars. Forty four cents that compared to the nasdaq down about nine tenths of a percent. Interestingly on the rise today this was the highest volume day for tesla of the week and sense earnings about forty million shares trading hands. Even though fridays in general tend to be about five to ten percent less volume as we learned during the s. and p. five hundred inclusion analysis period. So interesting to see that. I didn't see a whole lot of news that would have driven the stock today. But oftentimes things that are not. News-based are what's driving the stock right. So let's talk about the power wall plus this was posted yesterday on reddit by user tang. Who said that they were just finalizing their designed for tessler today in san interesting thing power while plus they have shared at the spec sheet for the power while plus and this is a different product than tesla shows online with the power while to now a lot of the specs are the same here but what it looks like tesla has done has integrated some of the components that previously would have been separated in what looks like a continued effort to increase the ease of insulation. We heard yulon talk a lot about this. On tests earnings call and of course we had heard from on the week prior on twitter that tesla solar whether the solar glass roof or rooftop solar would only be sold with an accompanying power wall on the earnings call. Ilan said that he believes this is the most important thing about the solitary of situation noting that installations would be much easier because power from solar would only ever go to the power wall then the power. Walt self would be the only thing that we need to interact as a power supply to the house. Or interact with the grit. It sounds like increasing. The power capability of the power wall was also a key component. Here so not changing the energy but allowing it to provide greater power to be able to handle peak power

The Ghosts of Northern Ireland’s Troubles Are Back
"To northern ireland now where violent protests have grit the region for almost two weeks. That's the sound of rioting which has involved children as young as twelve throwing bricks fireworks and petrol bombs at lines of police officers and vehicles in the last week. Ninety officers have been injured. This unrest relates back to brexit and today a court in belfast will decide whether to hear a legal challenge to the northern ireland protocol. That was part of the. Uk's brexit deal that imposed trade barriers between the region and the rest of britain to allow trade to continue seamlessly on the island of ireland. The bbc's john campbell has more on that story from belfast. Basically you have unionists. One of the men political groupings in northern ireland at the core of their politics is the desire to remain part of the united kingdom and to resist any attempt to reunite with the other part of ireland the republic of ireland. They want a judge to rule. Brexit deal for northern ireland would be unconstitutional. And they hope that would force the uk government to go and renegotiated. And what they are.

Is Laziness Real?
"Susan kemp has this task. Do you think laziness is really a thing. She writes for the last year. I've been debating of laziness is real or just some concept we created in order to. I don't know protestant guilt trip ourselves doing things. I like. susan already say that someone doesn't do their homework. Maybe they have an undiagnosed sleep disorder or are chronically sleep deprived and that's why they can't focus maybe their diet is off so they're tire. Maybe they're just tired because school starts at seven thirty. Am and science says. That is stupid. Actually i think science says that early school start is bad for some people but not others are different krona types yes well. In general though adolescents tend to be later risers so the science would say that starting school for most high school students at seven. Thirty is dumb okay. So she's right on that. I'm wrong in that she continues. Maybe they live in a poor socioeconomic situation where there's either a lot of noise at home or not a stable place to work etc. Maybe they're peers. Don't value education even if they opt for video games isn't that more lake dopamine zero Rather than pure laziness. So i thought i would ask. She writes and i find this to be an amazingly interesting question. What's the answer. I love his incomes question. I think that it depends on what you mean by laziness if she is asking. Dui laziness is really a thing or a protestant guilt trip. Who's no way you're gonna say that laziness isn't real. You're the grit lady. Well when you call somebody lazy what do you think we really mean. I think it means that we don't think they're eager to put in the work. What we observe is they're not working and we are inferring. Were assuming that they don't want to put in the work. And then she's listing all these other reasons that could account for the scene behavior. Maybe they can't put in the work. Maybe circumstances are conspiring against them. There's a judgment that we're passing on someone when we call them lazy. That is about their motivation.

A highlight from Being Able To Adjust
"Just thinking about what was just said a minute. Let me think about what was just say. I know that she didn't try to get the best of me. Like there is no situation to risk. But am i supposed to stop doing what i'm doing to make someone in her life comes and goes when i am not even their compliments and the fact being related related whose relation and trust the people you are around and about which does not dictate what you can say. What will be a pandemic. Which is the situation hand. You'll never be able to heal by going back to what broke. You does not make family. Those relatives family is those with home. You share your good bad and ugly and still love one. Another in the end family are the ones you select justice. Sentence peration okay. Let me see this person. Wants me to go back into someone. I once knew to make the life. Easier could jeopardize what i have been within my life really. I can't even fathom thoughts sitting around with someone who will make me feel ill. It's not all peaches and cream. When the person was in my life the attitude just to wear the shades the fact of lies and disrespect one thinking. It was okay for not looking. Like i was just there to be there but boy do they have another thing coming. You cannot understand a person without understanding what a person has been through in overcome when you can realize for the first time you have no pain of moving on letting the toxicity be removed completely in my life so when i show up i am proud to be. Just how far will you go to make someone feel special instead of making memories. Not say a bucket list. The bucket could not makes a difference in some ways it may be good or just. The course in life makes the pale too small of an ocean with fish swimming of things. I would love without hurting someone. Make sure you have a poll so you can say oh man here. Let me add this to the bucket minute. That was so much fun. I think i could just toss the fish back. So when i am ready to make you feel at ease up i can go back out there again. Not still swimming in the water. It makes the bucket which causes the love of new energy and life away. No one will be able to stand. There is no room in life when it's someone else's fault then it was you who could have done something about who what where or win. That is a real question. You can ask yourself to put it mildly given the opportunity to do again i just could have a because the path he walked. No one is able to pick up those shoes even if they just lifted off the show. So start from. The beginning is putting you and your place in a new era. It cannot be traced back to you. The lie said a coming within a person smile. You know obsolete nothing about you what you will do so let us get the shop. Talk to make the talk real. Sure let them through in through the good pitch. Lynn whack the heck out of the ball for the grand slam play. The denny's could not even recreate knowing how to say. I apologize is so much different in. I am sorry that is just thrown around like passing a term paper or something and the difference with an apologetic state is within sincerity of the mistake or the unwillingness of the situation helping to make the healing process as well as the relationship with understanding. Do not grit your teeth. Do not make fix miles. Do not come around when someone asks about you. Just do not look at the calendar. Just say i thought i would say hey to keep you on. Reserve didn't with such is only a quick fix. When you can say how you feel tell the truth and you can work. The situation and there is how to get things started. I know you don't understand but you have to live with you. And i am responsible for what i do. So if you love me like you say you do not thin you will keep your issues within you. Not price them on people. You had no intentions of trying to see. It will not help you in it. Postpones the inevitable of another day because no one sees you like idea flipping pages like you're in the book. When going through life you have a lot of comings and goings some people maybe in your life or duration and then there are others who just come around to see what you're doing. Do not bat your eyes pull down the shade glasses or even turn your head to the side not understanding the situation. Just hold up your head and take responsibility for what you did or even said and no one is in a Incidence this is even happening. It is just the time to pull out the weeds in your life that causes you to grow in a patch of something. Someone may not even want it around now. I say that to say this. It is not i who must decide about you in life. You must be the one to find out the answer within yourself and put forth the effort to say. I have nothing to lose. But so much to gain when i decide to make that change.
Designing charismatic voice assistants with Marie Kleinert and Ray-Allen Taylor - VUI Agency
"Some text to speech systems. I mean as far you can understand them. They sound grit. Wavenet sounds sounds cool. Custom voices like the bbc. Sounds pretty good. But what people don't really understand. Is that really to make them sound proper. Natural not robotic and not kind of boring and making you switch off with through. It does require a little bit of you. Know attention requires shaping and moulding is that is that where you see linguists really helping our as far as the snl. Monaco been making things. Sound mall human definitely like like probably for maybe the beginning choosing the voice actually. It's also nice to help To know about the phonetics of voice and the a voice can can foreign by and So that you can really help Explaining why certain some good or Might not be the right fit for. Maybe you're brand custom assistant but also as you said for lulu as l. tuning meaning and so on ready to help haven't earphones and to Now want paul's those can actually do in terms of emphasis and all these Now trend mechanics actually Which are in a voice and the voice paramedics s. I mean that's that's the end part of it. And he can do so many mistakes and so many wrong things at the beginning when you start developing the essence start thinking about how should this t t a sound and whereas the defensive record him on oh and how won't get changed the whole deal in that that's another erkki. Just do without them and if that goes wrong the best estimate on help you to find unit to have occurs matic voice in the end in. Go one step. I suppose before as well and making sure that you've actually you've got the right words in the first place in the right order. So we're getting talkin about covers my voice assistance. We're gonna question from malcolm auckland moment while we're on the concept of voices and you know t t s and all that kind of stuff that you You announced a partnership with vocal ide- relatively recently joined. Tell us a little bit. More about will then tells we're thinking about how could we. Maybe we would try to fit our like persona dine that we create on linguistic character traits and so on that we would actually like most of the cases to also have the voice which exit to that. So i think it's good to Also partner or To communicate with each eds providers Right at the start so that you don't come into project and you have already selected boys and then you then you do the persona. The is i smarts to Yeah start at the beginning and work together where working at the moment is usually have two models. One is very general like it says everything perfectly and house perfect pronunciations and has all the words so it can sound nice but most of the time it's very without a character without charismatic without everything because it's not recorded that way then afterwards he pulled on top the voice like like how should it sound and sounding is not the same as emotions and things like that and we thought and still believing that is historic data at the beginning And to should start at the beginning to have a Voice and that's why we got in contact with them and then start thinking about. How could we developed the first grade a mental models for this voice before even going into how voice sound so. We wanna give it emotions. I was Interest in what are you finding from the work that you do in. We'll we'll get into the the supposed to relate to charisma. It is really commitment. But it's more broader than that. I i would would agree. But i would. I would put charisma as kind of a personality. Trait could be one of many kind of traits. If you like but the concept of having a persona and overarching persona on a brand voice is something that you know some companies have. It's what we talk about quite a lot. You know but the doesn't seem to be a tremendous lord of examples of things. I cost him. Brian voices in in the conversation is based on lord. It's getting there but what you see in from the work. They are doomed. The clients that you're doing. What's the appetite for those those custom voices and costumed personas and things. That is that like a monday thing that you always do or is it something that you kind of need to spend a bit more time selling en and all kinds of stuff well again quite fast. As a matter of fact the courses will once you explained to them that this is. I mean this is the person speaking to your customers in the end was you'll worry so. The persona design is not only the part fall forward voicing auditor that a sound or emotional voice. It's also words. it's It's it's you'll conversational partner so to to have conversation unique to people you need to persons bolsa. Dan own uses story. And if you just go for a use case and i want to fulfil you use case then it's very one sided conversation nobody stat. Even if i'm not interested in a conversation and talk to you and you come on and you bubble bobble you keep on talking. I will have a use. I have my own user story already will have in my act out this conversation. And that's how i speak. That's how i phrase my sentences replies to you and presumably design is more than just. How does voice. It's it's how does it speak. how do i react. What do i want. The i want to try and sell something as well to make that person more comfortable in this situation or Maybe educate that person on something else that i could also do in grand like i'm telling you how to screw in schools somewhere because he just went to a care and bought new bad. It's so much more than just the

So we'll start with the most basic question which is how is estate planning social justice issue. I recognize that estate. Planning sounds like feels like smells like the most untold listed whitebread topic. Anyone has ever thought about. We are as spicy as as yes manny's however we are grateful to be able to do a fair amount of pro bono low bono work and we see in that practice a number of things pop up like over and over and over again people who their grandparents great grandparents own a piece of property and then didn't know about estate planning and so now they're in a situation where like fifteen people own it To be able to like apply for grants for certain things they would need to track all of down or pay for a quiet title action. It should be something that is giving them wealth insecurity but instead it's costing them money to have this asset and if you know what state planning is if you're willing to hear about it and learn about it It can really enhanced generational wealth for for non. Just you know middle class. America or or upper class market but like literally everyone. And that's why it's so important to us to help. People understand estate. Planning is for every single person. The the misconception is that estate planning is about figuring out who gets your stuff when you die and there's a whole lot of people who look at their lives and think i don't have stuff so who cares That's that's a wrong understanding of what it is. It's really just about making sure that the right people are in control at the right times of the right things and what we see your your question about it. Being a social justice issue is that there are massive disparity in who plans for that kind of control and because all of us no matter. What our demographic Racial status religious status nationality cetera. All of us are subject to losing that control because of disability and death because of the disparity in who plans there's also a disparity generational wealth and the influence political influence financial prosperity. That come along with that so over generations you see the disparity linked to you know we think of as as a as a pretty clear as one example reinforcement of systemic racism. Disproportionately people who have large amounts of money are larger. Amounts of money are thinking about doing estate planning right. It has occurred to them. Hey i should probably do a power return. He get a trust in place right but the reason that they're doing that planning the things that they see may be happening down the down the line in their lives and being possible. Those things are possible for every single person regardless of how much you have but if you have a plan in place it's gonna affect your life and your loved ones a lot differently than if you don't have that planning in place

Do you have any tips for that while you have to figure out if it's wood or if it's veneer and you're go from there for me. Normally the way i tell is like the weight so if it's pretty like substantial heavier is normally would versus like veneer like md. Ask fours and stuff and then like you can always stay on like maybe the back and just kinda like get a little bit in and then see what happens when you get that. I lay off and you can kind of tell if it is like because you're obviously going to hit the md board pretty quick with your sander. And then if you do then you gotta start stripping disturbs driven out if you hit past the grain into a board that looks like well like either particle board or not would not i will never yeah so in some of it's personal preference. I know even real wood pieces. Some people prefer to strip instead of sand. Cassia ending really does take off like a layer and then if you have certain things like that are more ornate strippers really better because some stuff. You can't stand like i know you're dresser or your nightstand from last season. Had that really intense like brady would kind of crazy now.

Prepare To Work Hard and Find Your Niche with Rebecca Smith
"Let's talk about what who you are how you got online and what your favorite platforms are. So let's start there. yes. I'm originally from england. I came to america. Twenty two to get my commercial pilot's license. Because i thought that was how is gonna travel around the world but it turns out when you get you commercial pilot's license. You don't get to go to bali short trip so hang on a second. This isn't quite what i signed up for. But i did my training in long beach and i grew up watching laguna hills on mtv. And i was like one day lauren. Conrad and i'm gonna drive down h. And i'm going to be in my convertible. We're gonna have lunch together. And so. I always have that vision of wanting to live in southern california. I didn't realize that a pilot's license was going to be the thing that got me here. But when i got here i fell in love and i didn't end up becoming a pilot. I got my whole license but came to america on an old one visa and started to go jobs like this. British jackson turns out a lot of british people. Thinking the same thing in la special. But i did go for an audition to be on a youtube channel and that was probably about ten years ago now nine ten years ago and i got the audition and i found out that my one talent in life is talking and working out at the same time. I can do that all day long. So i started working for a channel on youtube. Grew it to like three million subscribers. We eighteen months. I got paid forty dollars per episode but it was just the excitement of being part of youtube and it was workout videos. And i found something that i knew. This was my thing after about a year and a half. They decided they didn't want to film anymore. I didn't understand why no problem and it took me about a year and a half to get my confidence to fill my own channel and have my own videos now. Been doing that for coming on six seven years. I've got my own fitness that we have a pocus. I just had a best selling book and life is great. But it's really been a lot of grit determination and hard work. But now i'm in a place. Where just loving life and just enjoying everything that's happening so talk to us about the. What is the team. Look like to be able to build videos and editing and all that stuff. What does that look like when you when you start when somebody says okay. I want to assemble cheang because nobody talks about the team. The talking about you should do this. Here's the tactics. let's start there. I love that question. And it's so funny because i think it's always something that i'm working on so i do have a team now but when i'm very first study doing youtube and i still have my camera like a souvenir i had one hundred and fifty dollar sony camera setup on a tripod and i would shoot myself and i had the camera and i didn't realize until about six months later that you could flip the camera so that you can actually see yourself so no joke i would get into the show. I would do my jumping. Jacks put my arms in the air go round replay double check that i was in frame and then go back again. Yes you guys were always learning. So there's a war you if you have a flip camera that you can actually build meals but we didn't have fancy iphones back then. So this hundred and fifty dollars. Sony camera and then as i started to get more things coming on i would have insurance and are actually find people of craigslist. That's where i found most of my employees. Because i have much money at the beginning to help so i started to get people who would do things like my cleaning and my laundry so that i could spend time on that so it was like. Where can i navigate my time. Where is it best spent. And what can i delegate to other people with the money that i have like that sits like what do you have and use that phospholipids. Six years of having this company. I now have a full app team. I have somebody that does my emails. I have a chief business officer. I have a video an editor a personal assistant. Somebody puts all the input in the app. And has that runs my social media and mound. My mom is also working for me. So like i have like nine ten people that a part of my team but at the beginning i did everything i edited did. The blogs did the calendar. Absolutely everything and as things got better. I've been able to bring more people on at a different level. So okay she craigslist. So what did you do run on ad on craigslist. Or he just started surfing people on the job descriptions and setting the messages in. How did you know even how to lead them. You know what i mean like. That's like all right now. we're i. This was hilarious. This more. No kidding this is talk about the flip. The camera thing. I had the flip the camera moment this morning. I'm driving down the street. And i own a virtual system company fifty voice. Okay i own want. And i literally. I'm driving down the street. And i'm talking to the woman who is running dot company. 'cause i don't run that company at all. I have one meeting a week. And i don't run the company and i said wait a minute as a as a running strategy for that committed. Why is my company. The other company hardcore business. Why are we looking for social media. People to post are to put my social media. Team is like all of a sudden decide to be trainers and they're all gone right and there's all happened like the last six weeks and so i find myself postings or outdated like eight figure company and i'm back to posting right and i go. Why am i looking for a virtual assistant. Why don't you go find me. Virtual system works. That would be great for this job and so you know sometimes the common sense is in common and you know one of the things i think you probably develop skills on is like Like okay we find them on craigslist or wherever. And how do you get over the hump of not knowing how to lead them or what to ask them to do so for me. I've done everything in my business. So i knew how to set up even the web stuff. I knew how to write a blog. I learned all the skills myself then. I put an ad out honestly. It was for like an intern. Like hey social media person needs how with you know inputting blogs or whatever was the i was doing. I basically wrote my own job description of what i needed. Help with like you need any experience because at the time the people that i was hiring work. Twenty twenty one twenty two. Because i couldn't afford to pay them. You know somebody who was thirty five and had ten years of experience in like managing a team. So i like she learned all the skills myself i would put an ad out and then i would meet them nor at my house but like a nice cafe because it looked better right. So i do these interviews and i have interviewed. I've really got it down. At the beginning. I was interviewing like ten fifteen people a day for two days straight instead of just doing a quick zun things like oh. It's right in front of us. Why don't you just young paul with them because you know in the first i believe ten seconds if this is going to be the right person for you like with. It's just a feeling and for me. It didn't matter about how much experience they had. It was if i liked you and if we connected and if we gelled so like great i like you. You're a cool person. I'm gonna have you come in and then we're going to do an internship so for a couple of weeks just to see if you've got it and you know we're right fit. I'm gonna teach you these skills that i know. Then y'all gonna do it tell. Show tried to tell them what to do. Show them how to do it with them. Let go off and do it themselves and so we just things that i knew to how to teach them and you know this was thanks to a made and things always perfect. But it's better to have people doing eighty percents of you rather than to do absolutely everything because you never be out of scale and you won't be able to
How Authentic Confidence Can Boost Your Poker Game
"The first thing that i would say to people. Is you need to invest in cultivating your authentic confidence and not just trying to manufacture confidence. And i'll explain what i mean by that to me. Manufactured confidence is when you're looking in the mirror and you're doing that like on the greatest on the best. Okay one time and this has been years ago. I went to one of those. I can't remember. I can't remember if it was a t boot camp or w. s. o. P. boot camp but it was one of them and this has been at least ten years ago probably more but at the time they had this guy. I don't even know if i should say his name is so horrible. Nobody should ever looks at sky up but he was the mindset coat he is not around. So i don't even i don't know what rockies under but he. He went away okay but his his lecture was. Oh stand up and just scream out like on the grits fokker player in the world and the greatest poker player in the world right now. I'm pretty sure. I've told this story before because just set irradiating but to me. That's manufacturer confidence right. It's not real. I'm just like i could scream out anything right. I'm beyond say okay You know. I i can screw it out is not real right okay. So how do we get this. Authentic confidence which i think is what year student and everybody. Who's listening really needs to think about. So i think we're gonna do just a little Language lesson really fast. So confidence if we look at the root of that is cone fiduciary which means with trust or within intense trust. Okay well let's think about that for a minute if we want confidence. What do we want to have intense. Trust in okay. Well our fells. Yes but more importantly we want to have intense trust with our process at war systems. If you wanna think of it that way and i know you you talked about that a little bit in your answer to him you didn't. You didn't exactly say it this way but a news what you meant And you were telling him to continue to work on his game to make sure that the downswing wasn't effecting his decisions right so basically what you are saying. Is you need to work on your game to the stent that you have this confidence that you know what to do bore. I'd say if you're newer to the game. You're going to be like i. But i don't know what to do. That's true but you can say. I have confidence in myself that i'm going to make notes on this and then i'm gonna go find out what i needed to do whether i get a coach or ask question the facebook group or you know i look up. Articles or podcast. Whatever the case may be okay. So that's what i'm talking about.

"So you can live a hustle and grit lifestyle. Follow me at Instagram Prince. William's two underscores. You can also find me at my YouTube channel the real Prince William's if you like this content comment and share my episodes to all those that you feel will benefit from this knowledge. So the title of this episode is called the Flow State and in this episode, we're going to be discussing how the flow with life and the power of intention choice. We would talk about three points. What is the flow how to get into the flow and the power of the Flow State and intentional? So I want you to stay locked in and enjoy the discussion because we are going to get right into it. And in this discussion we're going to be breaking down the flow Paradigm. The flow Paradigm is what many refer to as flowstate. We're going to talk about what is Flow State why this is important and how to apply this to your everyday life and your mentality concept and ideology because when you're in the zone able to clear an empty the mind of your distractions and this allows you to have higher levels of consciousness where you can tap into the infinite knowledge of your subconscious mind with the mind is neither relaxed or excited but it's always ready to perform in a high-speed the subconscious mind has no intentions that has no plans. It has no direction. This is also a very powerful because when you're in the zone or you're in that flow State what you're creating and what comes out of you has better outcomes than you could have ever planned or Imagine song. Is the Flow State so how you get into the flow state will getting into the Zone The Flow State of Mind. It takes complete mental focus wage. So you want to be fully engaged on the task at hand and you want to be fully immersed in whatever activity it is that you're you're engaged with indicator. This is you want to do something that you enjoy. There are some factors that I want you to take note of one you have to enjoy what you're doing. You have to be in complete Focus off and it has to be no distractions, but obviously there's a Time component without all these smaller together like puzzle pieces. The this mindset is often hard to replicate home. That's why there has to be completed focus and not in no distractions. This is the definition of being in the moment where you to participate is fully engaged in that activity. And even though that activity may be changing. It doesn't seem hard at all. It says time is another component of all of this being in the zone when you're in the zone time seems to be distorted in the office around you seems to disappear. This is actually one way, you know that you're in the zone because time doesn't exist and everything around you slows down. Is actually a overwhelming feeling there's a there's a sense of joy and fulfillment that comes over you once you're in the zone. You actually are living your best life. You're living in your best moments and you can do no wrong. Everything seems to come together and you're completely enjoying the moment and everything that you're doing in the moment. It just seems like everything flows. So I say why is this important what the flow of being in? The zone is important because in spite of what people think you're more productive when your mind isn't scattered across many tabs because then it has the ability to focus in on a single text. We're all taught that multitasking is the way to be a more efficient, especially in this fast-paced work environment were deadlines are really part of our reality. But in actuality is the opposite so that's the key. That's the secret of being in flow or being in the zone. It's about said the attention and focusing on a goal and giving that goal uninterrupted time. So again, it takes about 15 to 30 minutes of uninterrupted time to reach that level of love. This is the approximate time. It takes your brain activity to change from the beta waves to the alpha waves. This is important because when you're an alpha wave brain package, you can change a program another subconscious mind through the powers of suggestion. So finishing your task and achieving your goals according to research makes us happier and more fulfilled. But how many of us once we reach the goal? We didn't get the feeling that we thought we were going to get. The what the reason why this happens is because the mind values the journey not the destination our brains are wired in a way that we get a more sustained dopamine released while we're on the way to the goal. But once we reach the goal our brains, give us a jolted open mean which makes us feel good in the moment, but once the the moment is over the highest over so let this let this be known if not the things that makes us happy, but it's the purpose of the mind that makes us happy birthday. So, how do you get into the Zone how you reached the Flow State? Well, whose work you love? Choose important but challenging tasks, but just make sure that task is a so challenging that you can't get it done block out all of the noise off of the distractions. Find the quiet in the chaos and set your intentions and don't be finished until you're finished find a peak time. This means finding a time that works with your own natural energy levels. It means tapping into your most creative times in a day and then focus in on that task as long as possible turn off the phone and don't be checked your emails. Cuz remember this is the time for you to work on the thing that you love to do before fully immersed in that which brings you happiness and joy. This is the message. I hope you enjoyed this information. My name is Prince William's the real Prince William's and I'm here to help you flow and grow off the next time I salute you..
