John davis is here via zoom because the whole world is zoom right now. So that's how we operate. A john davis is with us. John works for the mighty oaks foundation. He works with our applicants in many cases. He's the first person someone who applies to our program will interact with any very involved in our first responders program. And we're going to talk about the first responders program today and Just wanted to give you an overview for those. That are not familiar with the work that we do with first responders. Police officers firefighters those in that community. How we serve them why we serve them the way that we do and many of the unique challenge challenges that they're facing today john. Thank you once again for joining us. Really appreciate it. Great beer there are a million things going on in the world and man one of the big things for you guys right now. Your son is being deployed to help deal with a lot of what's happening in afghanistan. Yes i as. He's probably on enr out there right now but Of course brings memory of gone over the middle east my stuff number years ago. I offered my wife. She's been through it With her ex-husband as well as her brother. So it's kinda it's different for her. Though i'm she definitely says a lot different being her son right and then a spouse or or a sibling for sure. So she's actually pretty. Well obviously nervous in in brain a lot and Was brothers are a little bit more fired up than are yeah not not too happy about that I just you know. Just nerves foreign him. Obviously but yeah. It's it's an interesting time. You don't know what's going to go on over there like nobody does but sh you know disarmament app cat faith. And he's ready. Yeah yeah it's a it's a crazy thing. I think we you know we have this conversation. Law and folks are organization. Do we've all served Most of us have been in combat situations. But when you talk about your kids going it's a whole different game and it. It's funny i. I was never afraid to go But you can be afraid for your kids and I mean i you know this. He's eighty second actually might seem exact unit. Different jobs and come about medic is afford observer but so definitely a lot of memories. Come back and lives in the same barracks that i was in on same places that a lot of those danger coming up i i had not a bad way but force reliving some of that will be imperfect garrett for sure and trust the gal take care of him And i it's funny for us. I think a lot of the reason we do the work that we do. And we're passionate about it is because it's very personal to us We're gonna talk about our first responders program today and You know this is one of the areas for my son who's looking at a career in law enforcement and You spend a lot of time with them and mentor him. And a lot of ways in that area But it is very real to us because we understand personally. The impact not only having served but seeing those who we encourage our kids to be good citizens and to serve others now. They're doing it and like this is really one for them. But we've got to take care of them and so you know one of the ways that we attempt to do that here. The mighty oaks dacian is by serving the first responder community which is kind of new to us. I continue to say that we've been working with first responders for a very long time but in a very focused very concerted effort last couple of years. We've added so many in law enforcement and fire service. He antiques course. Paramedics others in the first responder community to our program As we begin. We'll talk about some specifics. But can you just give us an overview of what that looks like how they're included kind of how that's grown over the last couple of years. Yeah i mean. When i came in we had done. I responded only. I went through the program because a combat veteran with the program. And i'll tell you like from the gig before. I even had any idea that there was going to be first responders as far as we're going to serve them. I thought my head. And why i got involved with mighty oaks and first places man. I needed a news. One as a young case officer my time in the military and the comment was i had You know those. In at least. I didn't think at the time what bothered me. Much wasn't the intensity. All the guys are post nine. Eleven can afghanistan some of the crazy battles in iraq Just enough give me a taste but most of my. I guess you could say trauman issues. I that i dealt was was through law enforcement. And i just thought my head is like man if i could have had something some type of structure that might which could have provided. I was bleeding when other police officer as i shared before i was i was walking with the lord started police officer in the and i drifted into very very dark place and i had such a passion. My heard the messages from the veterans From everybody there. That man. I just wanted to. I had no idea that i could be involved in mighty. I went through And just in my head and my heart. I was like man. Police officers need this. Young police officers means offense options. Need and i needed it and fortunately And i was able to be part of mighty oak sin and serve than. It's grown tremendously for sure. Yo it's been awesome. Sue where we were to where we are now as far as serving those guys yup early on we said if you're in the first responders community which is a pretty a pretty big umbrella but if you're in the first responder community you can attend one of our regular programs and we'll fit you in and that worked really well until we realized there were so many folks that needed to be a part of it but police officers and firefighters definitely police officers but also firefighters are very cynical dislike. Those in the military are and so it took us just a minute to get things moving but once it did Just like on the veteran side having veterans who have been in combat speaking to other combat veterans. There's a kinship of brotherhood And that relationship brings people along. The exact same thing has happened on the first responders side. And it's it's.

"That they have this experience in many them returned to earth and transform their focus their purpose of in focus to like edgar mitchell set up a school that teaches a connection of all things or they become environmentalists. Or something like that. There's been so many. Instances of that and the science of our is pretty interesting where they talk about the frontal lobe activity decreases and that gives us a sense of connective. So they're starting to to link as you said the biology the neuroscience to these spiritual practices. Whichever way you want to look at it and if you wanna look through spiritual answer you want to look at through metaphysical one the idea that we are happy people and we what show up in service in love is the main point right right my favorite buddha quote of all time when you realized how perfect everything is you'll tilt your head back and laugh at the sky that's beautiful. It's it's all the same stuff it's matter of of working with what you got and what we got is gonna get a little. Woo hearing road down that path. Now though mean all good so i'm a firm believer that that because everything's an energy event there is a vibration and that vibration as defined by the apostle. John is god in god as he said in. The book of john was god is love so i often believe that we are here to experience. Our connection or experience with god truly is by having control of our own fear and so imagine being immersed in god but having a fog machine and your hand on the knob and you can turn the fog of fear all the way up and not see it. You can turn it down. You can pretend almost nothing but you can't as edgar mitchell would say you can't measure something without having a baseline to measure from so you can't experience that source of that got energy without understanding the opposite and the opposite of love is of course fear and everybody says well noah tate well hate is just a product of fear. If you're hating it's because you fear something. So i live this principle of just be love and when i feel myself in a negative state at all i go. What is the fear. And i addressed the fear and i turned my flog machine down just a little bit. That's fantastic. What a great place to wrap up this interview john. This has been really special conversation. I think you so much for coming on the show so fabulous thank you. I had a great time very rare. I get to talk by spiritual stuff usually. I'm among business. And i'm talking about you know peak performances and getting your people to do this and all that but i love having this kind of conversation my favorite..

What's the difference between a topic speaker and action hero speaker. It's a great question. It's so funny because my name is john davis. Which is the most eric name in history. And so i. I personally needed to have a brand that. Set me apart from anybody else but a topic speaker like if if someone's going out and searching for a leadership speaker they're not necessarily looking for a high dollar. I come into speak about spell leadership but if they go out and they searched for tony robbins. They're looking to something different so a rockstar speaker. An action here speakers one who stands out among the crowd and and literally come in there and get a really dynamic speech and might have multiple topics like as the corporate action hero. I speak about leadership. team building. diversity inclusion. I also speak about how to overcome adversity and obstacles in a career and and change management. So i've got lots of topics. But when they want to hide when they're looking for speaker and they want and they hire me they're looking for the corporate action here a separate you from everybody else right exactly and the ones that you know action here. A lot of people call it lea topic speaker or rockstar speaker. It's the same basic thing. It's it's about a marketing element. I'm marketing the corporate action hero..

It lives in your love. You know the possible john. One time said that god is love and so if you're a spiritual life in any form you're coming from that place of heart The reality of it is the past several years. Our society has lost a lot of that heart and we need to start seeing people for who they are. i've. I've traveled to thirty countries around the around. The world and i will tell you this every country i've ever been in i've been treated like a prince have been treated lovely but i treated them that way.

Virtual events online courses. My book will be close to being finished right because i just leverage the time but you know there. There was a lot of benefits with cova. To like for instance right now. I am not wearing pants. I believe because. I don't have to wear them and you don't have to see it exactly so you in your book. What are you writing or do you writing about. I'm writing a book called be an action hero. Not a reaction zero and it's it's all it's all about the five fs and and and how to how to leverage the present moment move forward that's awesome. I love that mindset. 'cause shane and i have talked about you. Know taking action. We totally believe in that and you know is as simple as you know oftentimes when we get up in the morning. We're a you know we just lay back in bed and we want pull the covers over. And that's done right but the action is flipping the covers off kicking your feet out of bed and getting up and moving right and that's really simple as action is. It's as simple as getting up out of bed in the morning. And so you know the action steps that you've talked about and and you know in your mindset. It's as easy as kicking your feet out the bed. All you have to do that thing right. It's the small moments you know. It's like the getting out of bed. That being from therapy paralyzes. It was the small moments. It wasn't it wasn't the big giant no no giant outcome ever going to magically appear your present moment. It just doesn't work that way you have to do things alignment with the bring it to you. Here's another thing. life is about motion. If you're not if you're not moving in general then you're not. You're not i creating anything in your life of this positive or sprinkling hope. Yes we're off. The thing is if you think about like this in nature water rushing downstream. You know when that water is moving and full of life getting oxygen healthy. It's wonderful take that same water and put in a puddle and let it stagnant becomes poisonous. Bugs lay their eggs in. It becomes nasty. Stagnancy will kill you. You've got to keep the motion going no matter what you do you know. It's like you watch these park or guys doing these jobs. Right jumping stunts. That as a stuntman. I know in how. I'd do it especially not now i hear you is. They're they're using the.

Your dad i know why you miss. I said why because you don't believe you're gonna hit it. You gotta believe it. You know you can get us and focus on any goal you want. But if you don't believe it then you're not gonna make shakespeare wrote in a hamlet. Can claudia says words without thoughts never to heaven. Go you've got to put your beliefs your thought behind what your focus. You know you can say anything you want. But if you don't believe it ain't gonna happen right right. so fearlessly. focus with faith. The next one is the hard one. It's the one that i struggle with. it's follow through. You actually have to do something you have to actually take have to take a present moment action and do something and if you're not taking the president action that's because you're stuck on number one you're still second some fear some fear stopping for moving. So you gotta you gotta get into this. I m taking an action now. The interesting about taking action is. You only have one moment than you can do anything. You can't go to the store next thursday right now and you can't go to the store last thursday right now you can only go to the store right now the only you have you can put thought were need into right. Here's where people get stuck. They get stuck in this moment and they look where they want to go and it looked so big and daunting out there and they think they have to struggle to get to it but the thing is that's not the way. The brain works at all The brain says i set a goal for the next future president moments right my passes just a stack of memories of president moments so i set a goal for this present moment and then i started doing things very successfully. Small successful present moments. That are in alignment with outcome and that big giant goal comes to me it. Just i'm doing small things. These little small things bring it to me so that first day my back muscles you know slowly worked every day to small little moments and next thing i was jumping off towers and climbing mount sinai and doing all these amazing things in my life because that moment gave me the opportunity to say okay.

A lot of people get into this whole affirmation thing During the air quotes. You can't air quoting handwrite now. Affirmations don't believe in them and i'll tell you like grab the word of affirmation means i'm shoring something up that's not solid which means in your present moment you don't believe it solid so you have to affirm it.

I am going to achieve exactly what settlement achieve. Nothing can stop me on a on a real deep physics level. Everything you see is just adams anyway and the only thing that manipulates your experiences your thought so. Just get your thoughts in the right place and start doing that. So those are the. I two five fs. Do you wanna talk about that a little bit. Continue on please okay. So we got fearlessly. Focus right now. Focusing is an interesting thing you can focus on positive you can focus on negative and have you guys know negative people. Have you ever noticed that. They always have something. It'd be negative about. Oh yeah that's because they're conscious mind is focused on negative and their subconscious mind shows them things to be negative about. And that's the way the conscious and subconscious mind work. Have you guys. Were bought a car. Did you ever did you choose. What kind of car you before you went to go buy nope. No no okay. Have you ever bought anything big that you knew you wanted before you went to buy it. Yes okay did you notice it. After you made that conscious choice. We started seeing that sitting. Oh yeah and that's true with the cars to right after you buy cards. Seems like you see that car exotic road your conscious focus. It's that hits that choice your subconscious mind kicks in to help you achieve it. And if you know how to work your subconscious mind by staying present moment positive your subconscious mind will continue to show you positive things and so for me. I couldn't get into his negative thoughts. The doctors negative thoughts to get into my positive thoughts of what i was achieving. And so that's that's how that fearlessly focused the next one's the court. There's five of them and this is the middle right. That's the one that it's holds everything up on both sides.

He's now seventeen back when he was six. We hit a nerve across guessing across. But i don't have one of those dude. Let me tell you something if you're into nerve at all. The crossbow is ridiculously accurate. Stupid accurate right. we would. We would have this game where he at six years. We would shoot who sit on our couch and living in the living room through the kitchen door at the side of the trash can and pain. But you know that sounds amazing but you could hit it every damn time and my six year old could hit it every damn time so what we did was. We made the game harder so whoever wasn't shooting would stand halfway between the kitchen and the couch with two nerves source.

"How you got pastor or through that situation where you were. You know stuck in probably. I'm assuming can't really move. So how did you. How did you get that into your mind other than just reading that book or did you just kinda in reading that book you decided. Hey this is what i'm gonna do. I'm not gonna let somebody else dictate my life and that's it. Well there's alive. I was also. I also studied philosophy and so i was. I was very much into reading the stoic philosophers and a lot of their thought processes. And i also have a weird passion for studying spirituality as well and though i was raised catholic My mom was very open. Study whatever i wanted. And when i started seeing correlations and all of them i started realizing that they were telling us how we how we create our own experience. So buddha's what you think you become you create world. gandhi says. You must be the change. You want to see the world christmas. Says you're the culmination of your thought. Jesus said whatever you ask in. God's name is granted but most said god's name was i am so i am as view declaring your present moment so what i did was i started declaring my present moment the way i wanted to declare my present moment. Not how somebody else was telling me. I had to and so by by getting real solid in my present moment and staying right here and then starting to stack successful present movements now. This process took me to all really amazing. Place eventually started studying. How learn linguistics.

Yeah well scientifically what's actually happening. It's not that you can't breathe. Is that your body is conserving. Air is holding air in because the second you know how thing were you. You see a child almost fall and you go. Gas for air rancho name. that's unnatural primal response just like the did you guys are watching. His national geographic shows on. Tv did you see that.

Gazelle out there in the field much ram and then that predator cat hits the field. The first thing that gazelle does go. Guess prayer. right it's an actual primal response. Actors are trained. That if they if they're on stage and they forget all their lines they're literally trained to exhale relaxed their muscles because it shuts off the fighter flight response and get some back into their brain and all their lines rush back into their head.

Remembering Carl Reiner, A Legendary Writer, Producer And Performer
"This is fresh air when Carl Reiner sitcom pilot starring him, his TV writer Rob Petrie was rejected by CBS producer Sheldon Leonard rescued it by persuading Reiner to replace the entire cast, including Reiner himself. The result. The Dick Van Dyke show was a major TV hit and made a star of its then unknown leading lady Mary Tyler Moore. Terry Gross spoke with her about the show and her TV character in 1995. What were you told about the character of Laura? Just that she was going to be a wife, a television wife, and that really had its classical parameters and dimensions that they were established. And they hardly ever varied except A Sze to whether or not the wife was the star of the show. In which case she was the funny one. Or if she were the straight man for the male star, and she was then totally supportive, but all these wives We're kind of obedient and you know, a representative of the vows to love, honor and obey. They hardly varied from that, and With with Carl Reiners character the way she was written, Laura actually had opinions of her own. While she was asserting herself. She also didn't make Dick Van Dyke look like a dummy. It was ah, a matter of two people. I mean, society's expectations of that point still said, Hey, wait a minute, lady. You only go so far here, but I think we broke new ground. And and that was helped by my insistence on wearing Pants. You know, jeans and and capri pants at the time because I said, I've I've seen all the other actresses, and they're always running the vacuum in these little flowered frocks with high heels on And I don't do that. And I don't know any of my friends to do that. So why don't we try to make this real and I'll dress on the show the way I do in real life, But it wasn't that easy. The sponsors were afraid you brazen right? They pointed specifically to if they used the term cupping under And I can only assume that that meant my you know my my seat that there was a little too much definition. And so they allowed me to continue to wear them in one episode. One scene per episode. And only after we check to make sure that there was a little cupping under as possible could coming under referring to the fit of your pants, the fit of the pants on my behind, right? But within a few weeks we were we were sneaking them into a few other scenes in every episode, and they were definitely cutting under and everyone thought it was great. The funny thing is, you know. Women liked me. They were not envious of the fact that their husbands had a crush on me. It was okay with them. They they were the first to know when I would meet people. They'd say My husband loves you so much. And he thinks you're so sexy. And this was it was not thing because they were also able to identify with me as a friend as a girlfriend. There was no resentment, no fear. Yeah, well, I think that that speaks so well for the character and your your portrayal of her. Did you do a lot of rehearsing with Dick Van Dyke? Or did you just have to do it? Minutes before the actual broken? The whole show was done in what they call multiple camera technique could still done today. But back then we were maybe the sixth or seventh show to use the technique. It began with Joan Davis, not Lucille Ball as everyone thinks John Davis did a show called I married Joan. What a girl! What a world What a life! Hey for you, and then Lucy and several other shows followed. But in that show it's a little like doing theater that's captured on film. You rehearsed for five days and then Ah, On the evening of the fifth day, the audience comes in and the camera's having blocked their moves in yours lined up with them. You film it from top to bottom in continuity. So during those five days, it was at least the 1st 3 days. It was very much a matter of rehearse. And contribute and attempt things and not be afraid to fail to make a fool of yourself. Just pick yourself up. And if it didn't happen this time, then the next time the experiment maybe it will Was a wonderfully supportive creative environment. Mary Tyler Moore, speaking to Terry Gross in 1995.
