"The podcast, professional troublemaker. I'm so excited to be your guest host for this month of home Attica. This month we're highlighting prodigies. Women who achieved greatness at a young age. This is especially a passion point for me because my latest book rising troublemaker, a fear fighter Mayo fatigue reminds them that they are never too young to make a significant impact. Today, we're talking about a woman who became a queen at a mere 6 days old. She ruled at a time when monarchs were mostly men, and she led a complicated life in the public eye and navigated the drama of being royalty, until her untimely death. Let's talk about Mary, Queen of Scots. Mary Stewart was born on December 8th, 1542, at linlithgow palace in west lothian, Scotland. Unfortunately, Mary's birth was quickly followed by tragedy. 6 days after she was born, her father, James V of Scotland, died of unknown causes. Infant Mary became the queen of Scotland overnight. By September 9th, 1543, she was officially crowned. Of course, being an infant queen, meant that for a time, her mother, Mary of guise, ruled on her behalf. Mary Stewart was well connected. Henry VIII was a great uncle in Elizabeth II door was her cousin. Being well connected, however, came with his challenges. Following a defeated battle, the English and the Scots drew up a treaty declaring that Mary should marry the future Edward the 6th, so that Scotland and England could make peace. Mary was barely a year old at the time, and Edward was 6. This plan was quickly squashed when Scottish parliament rejected it in favor of an alliance with France. To say Henry, Edward the 6th father was unhappy, would be an understatement. In retaliation, Henry ordered attacks on Scotland that would later be called the rough wooing. Among the attacks encompassed in the rough wooing were incidents involving set and fire to James V's burial ground in crop burnings..

When Brandon Straka Realized He Was in Trouble With the Law
"When did you realize that you were in trouble with the politically motivated law enforcement of the United States? On Monday, January 25th, 2021 when an FBI S.W.A.T. team came into my apartment at the crack of dawn, put me in handcuffs and told me that they were taking me to jail on felony charges. Do you have a criminal record have you used violence in the past? Is there anything to justify the use of that kind of intimidation against you when you are rated at your home Brandon? I have no criminal record whatsoever. And for anybody who is paying any kind of attention or doing any kind of research, what they would find is that my message consistently for three to four years before I was arrested was that my movement is an attempt to unify this country to bring peace and civility back into political discourse. And to try to unify this nation. So I actually represent quite the opposite I'd say of violent anarchist attitude, whereas if you juxtapose that with something like say the Black Lives Matter movement or a antifa, those people seem to get off Scot free when they actually are encouraging and committing violence.

Report Finds 'Abuses of Discretion' in Kim Foxx Handling of Jussie Smollett Case
"I've talked before about the Jussie Smollett. Case in the Jussie Smollett verdict. Well, what I haven't talked is about is the responsibility. And the abrogation of duty and the shenanigans that have been pulled by Kim flocks, who was the Cook County state attorney, the supposed prosecutor of Jesse Smollett. The good thing is that there's now a report by Dan Webb, Dan Webb is a special prosecutor who was appointed. This is the guy who prosecuted Smollett. But what he does is he goes back and he looks not just at the small lead case, but he's done a report on the behavior of the office of Kim fox, and he finds all kinds of improprieties. Let's remember, let's refresh our memory when Smollett was first busted by the cops. And they had the goods on him. They had all the evidence that was eventually presented in the trial, but nevertheless, Kim Foxx's office a dismissed the 16 count felony indictment. In fact, had no requirement that Smollett either plead guilty or accept any responsibility. They really gave Smollett no real punishment. They just gave him essentially 15 hour 15, one 5. I had over a thousand hours by the way of community service. 15 hours of community service, and then they said, listen, you paid a $10,000 bond doing a forfeit that. So Jussie Smollett was gonna get off Scot free. Now, Dan Webb looks into the behavior of Kim Fox, and he finds all kinds of violations. First of all, Kim frocks from the beginning was conspiring with a couple of other leftists, a woman named Christina Chen. By the way, this is Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, and a woman named Cheryl and I fill whose president and director counsel of the NAACP legal defense fund. So this is how the left works in concert in order in this case. They knew that Jussie Smollett was guilty, but their idea was he's promoting our narrative. You know, racism everywhere, even if you had to make it up. So they're like, how do we get this guy off? So kitten Fox, for example, had said publicly, and you really see the level of public deceit, because she publicly said that I've recused myself from the case. She said, you know, yes, I did contact Smollett sister. I was in contact with the family when I thought he was a victim. But once I realized he was a suspect that we were looking into him as the possible perpetrator, I had no contact whatsoever with the family, and Dan Webb basically says this is a flat out lie. He points out that on multiple occasions, I think he identifies at least three that Kim Fox continued to maintain contact with Jussie Smollett's sister. And this he says was an abuse of

Who Was Warlord Vortigern?
"Island of great britain was originally an island that was inhabited by celtic peoples. It was later occupied by roman became a roman province yet. The people who live on the island didn't end up speaking a celtic or romance language. They ended up speaking a language that belong to the germanic family of languages. The following story. A might have had something to do with how that happened. More on that in a bit the events in question date back to the late fifth century. This is a period of british history. That has some major holes. The roman empire had collapsed and nothing had really risen to take its place. There are many warlords and kings who vied for power. This was the period of time. When according to legend king arthur would have ruled so pretty much everything from this period is kind of questionable one of the rulers at that time was a warlord named voter turn. He was the leader of the britons in the wake of the roman collapse from what accounts we are told. He got to his position via a lot of duplicity and skulduggery supposedly. He had worked his way into a position of influence with the romans took advantage of that to usurp the throne the to rightful heirs. Were a pair of young brothers named or really ascend brosius and author and they were sent overseas for their education ford gern. Having assumed the throne had a hard time holding onto power he was constantly dealing with incursions from the picks and the scots and the north he was also dealing with the potential of an armada joining the two brothers to take back the throne. his solution to deal with. These problems was to hire mercenaries. Hiring mercenaries wasn't necessarily a bad idea it had been done throughout history with various levels of success. Forty gern contract out the work to to saxon brothers by the name of hen. Gist and horsa. They would bring in dramatic mercenaries to fight off the picks and the scots on behalf of the britain king in exchange for their services voltigeur offered this accents. The isle of janet to settle on today the island is actually a peninsula in the county of kent. Fifteen hundred years ago it was an island separated by six hundred meter channel.

You can't look at that and say no. That's okay. I mean it is goodness and there's just so much i want to talk about that i gotta i have to talk about though I never seen this. It's a quote you have in the epigraph chapter five from saint augustine. Who said the truth is like a lion. You don't have to defend it. Let it loose. And it will defend itself That's so good. you know. I think that these things in bridging from the toxic side but the truth does come out rhyming. The truth eventually. You don't have to defend. It will emerge right. And the same is true. With ov- i mean i think tove goodness i i've been working. The last eighteen months have been writing. A what's the fourth book in the good and beautiful series called the beautiful. You subtitles creating becoming the person. Jesus crazy to be but the thing scott for me was that i also begin. Discover that our soul is told like our soul wants our soul once goodness it once. We're built like factory. Built with made for tove and so reading your book as i'm finishing my book i saw this overlap of what's happening in our souls and why we respond to it like you just can't fight it.

We have a longing for messianic figures in our life who can build us off. Enhance our status reputation. Give us meaning in life and dispel the enemies and american evangelical. Especially you know you. Don't we don't find this other than that of hamilton. And i don't think he's. I guess he's a celebrity it somo but he's just an anomaly in mainline churches. We don't have as much that way. Is there something about you vendela. And you're looking for a hero looking for a celebrity. Maybe it's populist mentality that they want a messianic savior who will point the way form but what we have and it is so tribal sky. Johnny did this study not too long ago within the last ten years in which he discovered that the evangelical church had stopped being denominational and the This is a fascinating study is the it was replaced with personality cults. So some people follow rick warren. Some people follow bill 'heimlich's. Some people followed andy stanley. Some people followed tim. Keller and some people follow mark driscoll. Some people follow rob bell brian clear and it was almost like all. These people gathered around a an individual character and it is so clear that this is characteristic of populist evangelicalism that you have to say there's something rotten in the core in a desire for a hero.

The wounded avoid accountability. I mean that's the playbook. Let me read a sentence. Scott from the. I just love the sentence you right. This is a book about defending the redemptive value of the church while at the same time accepting the truth that broken fallen people within the church including pastors and other leaders will send sometimes shameful and damaging ways. I love about that sentences. You're saying this is ultimately a book about the redemptive value the church. It's clear that you love the church. I loved the church. And that's that's why. I think we can be critical right because we love it so much. I think as you mentioned with hill song. And you know rabbis zachariah. I mean it's just. I i'm starting to just get so discouraged but what i felt in reading your book. Was you you disorder diagnosis. This this situation and hopefully people will look at it and go guys. This is happening to us. We need to stop this. If we see some of these these characteristics that you name in the first part of the book you know Your your four to work with people. Like richard foster dallas voter because dallas lately. He was so much into character. beat downs and you go l. Let someone i wanna be like. You meet some of these people you say. I wanna preach like that. Or i want a church. Debt works dallas's character carries the day character. You know who is peter. Drucker says culture eats strategy for breakfast. I back that all character. Each cancer and dallas had had the character and yellowed. I wanna be. I remember when chris she said i want i. I wanna grandpa that rice. It's the person we don't values this enough in the church Because our role models have been measured by numbered success and numbers of success. And we have to. We have to shift that kaci absolutely. Yeah i mean you know. I speak to pastors of fairmount. I'm i. I actually pray that god will give me opportunities in god opens doors but one thing i always say to pastors. Don't measure the success of your church on the abc's of attendance building in cash measured on the which is discipleship. Which is your discipleship to jesus.

History i would say in the last fifty years for sure But their leader Their pastor senior pastor bill hamels Sort of a fall from grace and and Well i'll let you tell it because you're the expert on what happened. I've read things but maybe just let the listeners. Know what happened to willow. Because that was a kind of spurn spawned the book.

They had actually been working behind the scenes with wills leadership elders any bill for four years without any progress at all so came forward in a public newspaper. Not not not just public chicago tribune. Which is big time. And all of a sudden willow was in the news with very serious allegations by women against and eventually there was even a bigger story published in the new york times by the time that was over two and a half years ago whatever. It was clear to everybody that there was guilt and the church needed to think about what to do and so those allegations just called into what we would now call church too and we heard about other stories and we wanted to respond to that situation. Yeah because as you mentioned it's it's unfortunately all too common. We see some of this. And i one of the things i love about the book. You don here is you well. The first part of the book examines topic cultures and toxic churches and it was hard to read. I'll be honest because it was like you guys were telling true stories. You weren't just sort of speculating with the fictional anecdotes or case studies. This is real but then of course the second part which was my favorite. A second part of the book is where you begin to look at the characteristics of churches that heavy deeply good or tow of culture but we should probably just follow it. The book doesn't and just begin with happiness in these churches where it becomes a toxic kind of culture at euless several of the ingredients and steps and fantastic job of outlining that but share with listeners. Like what you have learned about the characteristics of those cultures that are not told but are quite the opposite. We call toxic cultures. There was hard enough to get the publisher and allows us one heat reward. The other hebrew word is raw evil and so we use the word talks. Okay how jim what we discover. We found seven characteristics of toxic church cultures that are symptomises detectable most easily in narcissism which is grandiosity selfishness extreme sensitivity to any kind of criticism a profound lack of empathy for other people for hurting people for people in general other than what fits with the agenda of the leader and we also found that such leaders and such churches used power used fear to increase their power so we call it a power through fear culture and there's just a lot of insider inside circle top executive team that makes the decisions that nobody can challenge. You can challenge as long as you agree. You know that sort of thing and Started exploring this. We found that institution creep.

Many In Flint Question Whether They'll Get Justice For Water Crisis
"According to multiple media reports michigan's former governor and other officials will be charged in relation to the flint water crisis seven years ago despite possible criminal charges. A lot of residents still question. Whether those officials will be held accountable. Michigan radio steve carmody reports. Nearly seven years ago government leaders here push the button that switch the city of flint drinking water source from detroit's water system to the flint river flag. The intent was to save money. The result was a complete disaster treated river water damage to pipes which then released lead and other contaminants into the city's drinking water eighteen months later. The water was switched back but the damage was done. Blood lead levels soared in young children. People were forced to use bottled water for drinking and washing clothes. The city was forced to rip out thousands of old pipes while testifying about the flint water crisis before congress. Four years ago former governor. Rick snyder acknowledged mistakes. State and federal officials failed the families of flint. Snyder was not among the fifteen state and local government officials face criminal charges for their handling of the crisis half of them pled guilty to lesser charges in exchange for no jail time and in two thousand nineteen michigan's new attorney general dropped charges against the remaining defendants citing problems with the original investigation. The investigation seemed over until yesterday when the associated press reported that several former government officials including former governor snyder. We'll be facing new charges. If that happens. Legal experts say it would be difficult case for prosecutors. Peter hammer teaches law at wayne state university in detroit. He says despite possible difficulty getting convictions. It's important to bring charges especially in an era where we're living where people are not being held accountable. This could be an important statement about the significance of the rule of law and that not even the highest public official in the state is going to get off. Scot-free a spokeswoman for former governor. Rick snyder calls the reports of impending charges a public relations smear campaign saying that if brought they would be meritless since during eighteen months of foul-smelling dirty tap water that made them sick flint residents have demanded justice and compensation a us district court. Judge is expected to decide in the coming days if she will give preliminary approval to a massive settlement agreement resolving most of the thousands of outstanding lawsuits last year. The state of michigan announced. It struck a deal with attorneys representing flint residents to pay six hundred million dollars into a settlement fund. A few months later the city of fled a local hospital and an engineering firm agreed to chip in another forty one million dollars. Nearly eighty percent of that money would be set aside for plaintiffs. who were young children or minors. During the crisis they are the ones most at risk for suffering long-term lead related health problems. But growing course of critics say it's not enough a group of flint. Civic and religious leaders led by pastor. John maclean gathered monday outside. The city's water plant to express concern about the settlement. We believe that the proposed settlement curly allocated is just as disrespectful as injury-cause by the water crisis tragedy itself in addition to tens of thousands of residents. There aren't the lawyers lots of them. More than one hundred forty took part in a zoom hearing with the judge last month. This is part of the challenge facing the judge how to divide a large pool of money without leaving some feeling victimized again. Flint's mayor says it's important. His residents have a belief in justice and developments. This week may help with that for npr news. I'm steve carmody in flint.
Breakthrough: UK and EU reach post-Brexit trade agreement
"European Union seem ready to sign a post Brexit free trade agreement before the end of the year. New Year's Eve is the deadline. Let's remember the U. K voted to leave the EU four years ago and it has been a saga since then. And let's turn to Who else MPR's London correspondent Frank Langfitt, who has covered All the big moments in the socket. Good morning, Frank. Good morning, David. Feel like I'm gonna believe this when I see it, but it sounds like we're getting close. What? What are the sticking points here? Well, interestingly enough, One of the main sticking points was actually fishing rights. I know that may seem, you know, given this is going on for so long. That may seem very odd toe listeners. Fishing is only less than 1% of the British economy. But what mattered, I think, particularly to British negotiators and Boris Johnson is back in 2016 when there was this vote. Bars Johnson and others. Their slogan was Take back control. Take back control of our waters. You know our our money our laws from Brussels from the EU, and so that's why symbolically, this has had an outsized role in the negotiations. Boris Johnson feels like he has to deliver and bring something back where people here feel like the United Kingdom really is leaving the EU and and moving on. And so own way to determine what kind of economic future is gonna have. Okay, so so fishing. I mean, a lot of symbolism there and and on many of these issues, but also so much at stake in this deal, as you've reminded us so many times there is I mean, this is the biggest trading partner for the United Kingdom there. They're leaving what they're hoping to get out of this deal and probably will will be terrifying, Quota free access to this enormous market. Of nearly 450 million consumers, and I think, particularly with his deadline coming up. David is to get some kind of deal so we don't see more chaos of the borders at the end of this year. When there's this Brexit transition period that ends and we've gotten a sense of how bad things could be just this weekend when France closed the borders because of the Corona virus variant we've been reporting about that appears to be Highly infectious and so France block things at the port of Dover. We now have, like 6000 trucks actually stranded around that part of the county, Kent in the southeast of England, waiting truck drivers waiting for negative covert 19 tests to be able to cross back and hopefully it's most of them. This will not work out for get home for Christmas. E into that could be a lot to sort of sacrificed. Here's as this process goes forward. I guess I just wonder, Frank A simple question. If this deal is confirmed, will it make the United Kingdom richer? No. In fact, it will do it. Sort of. Ah, choice. I think economists and trade experts will tell you, David choice between bad and worse. Getting a deal will help keep trade moving as frictionless as possible across the English Channel. But this is a feared thin deal. This is we've often talked about as hard Brexit. The U. K economy will not be is integrated with EU economy. For instance, financial services They're big business here in London. They're gonna have much less access to the European market than before. An economist that I've been talking to now for years, say that over the next decade, Even with this deal, per capita income here will be more than 6% less. Then, if the UK had actually stayed in the U E. We should say this whole saga cost two prime ministers their jobs. What is amazing political about Boris Johnson? I mean, calmer times for him, If if this goes through I think so. I mean, we're expecting to see him outside of number 10 Downing Street today, basically doing a victory lap and he will get credit for actually bringing this in. On the other hand, Brexit was always a gamble for this country, You know? Can they do it on their own outside of the EU and also Brexit has been so divisive that we've now seen up in Scotland is anger over that because the Scots voted against this There's now a bigger push for Scottish independence, and that could be the next big problem that Boris Johnson has to address next year.
COVID-19 stimulus deal remains elusive as Trump signs 2-day spending bill to avoid shutdown
"Congressional lawmakers avoided a government shutdown by giving themselves two more days to agree on a $900 billion covert relief bill. Or not, it's financial relief. The American people have been waiting on for months and months. Joined now as we are most Saturdays by NPR's senior Washington editor Ron Elving. Ron, thanks so much for being with us good to be with you. Scott. Negotiators said They had a framework for this package a few days ago. What's in it? About a trillion dollars scot a little less so, so it looks a little less expensive. That keeps some of the senators on board who said they would never vote for another trillion dollar bill, and it is a lot smaller than the Leave package we saw last spring. This one has about 300 billion for businesses. Another 300 billion for unemployment benefits. We expect there to be stimulus checks again. For individuals. They'll only be about $600 this time, about half assed much his last spring. But aid to states and localities has been dropped for now, as well as liability protection for employers, and it's all attached to a stop. Gap funding bill passed just last night, And when we say stopgap, we mean Just a little bit of stopgap. It only lasts until tomorrow night, which is kind of a nice metaphor for how our federal budget has been working in recent years. Democrats won't get all aren't getting all of what they want Republicans already there. I'm not sure where they couldn't have just recognized the obvious six months ago and passed a bill. But is this exhausted? Kind of compromise? A preview of how the incoming congressman work? Oh, you have to hope not. But on the other hand, why expect better? Unless the Democrats can win both those runoff elections in Georgia in January, there will be divided government and if the Democrats are nominally in charge, their margin in the House is only going to be a handful of seats. And in the Senate, there would be no margin at all. They would be 50 50 with the vice president would be Kamila Harris by then, breaking the tie. So everything will be a negotiation with Republican leader Mitch McConnell, much as it is now

All That Is Wicked
"This is dryden village in upstate. New york near ithaca. The first settler arrived here in seventeen ninety seven and it was eventually named after english poet. John dryden the small country village. They founded was quirky. Six mile creek was actually twenty miles long but the people who lived there were proud of their heritage. After the revolutionary war. The town became part of the military tract program. It was a government scheme that gifted each new york soldier hundreds of acres of land a type of payment for participating in the war the war of eighteen twelve drafted even more soldiers so more veterans came and some of its most notable early villagers were the scots. They were respected family. That was really well known for their contributions to the village but they were also known for the string of horrific murders in their family. Red light you can imagine this now lost snow on bravo. I'm a journalism professor at the university of texas and austin and now i've never really driven in the snow. It took me about an hour just to drive thirteen miles. From ithaca craig scott and i drive the back roads of dryden winding pass churches and fields to brookefield farm. This has been in his family for almost two hundred years. Another scutt kathy. Chadwick lives here with her son and her dog. Hannah ohana i wander around for awhile outside. Craig is a retired local businessman and politician who has lived off of scutt road for decades. The local cemeteries are filled with his ancestors. The scutt name rings royalty in dryden at least to me. He and cathy have hundreds of relatives in the county but they've never actually met most of them. What is it like to come from such a large family. I have two cousins vast family. We always run into people that we didn't know we were were part of a tree somewhere. I at least. I find that i went to the picnic a couple of years ago. And oh my word. Where did all this cuts come from. So it was a little surprising to me that the family was so extensive. The scots arrived in america. In the early sixteen hundreds from amsterdam they owned lumber mills clothing mills and thousands of acres of farmland. They felt blessed to be a part of such a close community. Gerald smith is a historian and nearby broome county and an expert on small town life in the eighteen hundreds. Everybody knows everybody else. Everybody would go over and help the neighboring farmer or two or three farms down. If there was a problem the barn burned down. There's a barn. Raising the family's patriarch in eighteen. Forty two was john scott. He was a fifty five year old decorated veteran in the war of eighteen twelve. John own this house which looks really small from the outside. But it's two stories with four bedrooms and a large basement a pretty impressive eighteen forties house that has stayed in the scott family for generations. A well with original slate stone sits just feet from the house. A murder of crows lives in a massive willow tree nearby. I can remember as a child coming out here to visit. It's not a bad thing to hang on a little bit to the past john. Scott was cathy chadwick's great great. Great grandfather he became a well known schoolteacher in dryden a leader in the village he was highly intellectual and very hard working and a little strict told me about the family. Valley's well perseverance stubborn. It's right up there on top of the list. My grandfather used to say man's only as good as his word could give somebody your word. Make sure you keep it. He always was stressing that yeah and that was something that i did as well and commitment to each other. Henry scott was john and hannah's second eldest child henry was trusting.

"scot" Discussed on Just Fly Performance Podcast
"Scott. Welcome to the show. It's awesome to have you here Min. Banks. or It's something myself and my team we listened to you guys all the time on on just fly sports <unk>. It's got a requirement for anybody that works for me to listen to your podcast though. They'll thank you. Yeah. It's awesome to have you. I mean, I know every time we've talked or I've I've just more and more intrigued by what you do. Because I, know you're not like you're not all over social media. You know you're not. You're but entire, I've just like I am. So I wish before I left. California could've stop by and really excited that chat about your. Your your insight into your system and how before we get into that I'm curious to like and I like getting into this for especially for people who have who see things in such an expansive way. But what was your gateway into coaching like what got you interested in it, and then what were some really big milestones in changing the way that you thought about your process? Yeah I, you know quick Reader's Digest version is. A pretty good athlete grown up back East right and had scholarship offers and was fortunate enough when I was in. Eighth Grade. To walk in the YMCA, fine little dungeon part where all the tough guys athletes working out in in. There was a level five Olympic lifting coach, and saw me with my little fitness books working out and said Hey kid Chimera. I WANNA teach you how to really train and while I was in eighth grade I started training with. Professional, athletes Olympic, athletes learning how to snatch clean squad sprint hurdles. Everything. So was a amazing experience for young kid be pulled into that kind of culture right away. Top properly. And then after. Know went into finance world business world is kinda miserable, but I was always getting fathers and guys played college football with call me when Scotty? Knew so much about this stuff. Helped me, I got a contract or my kids to a scholarship, teach him and I was doing it on the side and just fell in love with it and started growing in saw business opportunity, and then got called sportsmed guy in Toronto like the work I was doing and went up there and started running its clinic work with NHL guys in Canadian Olympians and stuff like that. It just grew from there kind of an organic way of. Loving it as a young young kid. Being, lucky to have someone mentor me and saw how it changed my life, and then fell into coaching. I feel like you're not the. For, some reason the finance and I didn't like it, and then again, the sports perform I. I've heard that story before I. Don't Mac Shakers on here had that too, and I feel like I've heard others. Maybe I do feel like that that like systems kinda thinking or do you think there's any thinking and finance that is helpful for sports is just make quincy dental you are. I think it's I think it's for competitors. We'll always WANNA look at measures of success. And that's kind of a natural thing. Until you realize I work, I work hard to get something and I realized I. Don't like it when I get here, that might not be success but I think finance is a challenging. Competitive. And and you know with detail and all these little nuances you can take and I think that attracts people to feel they wanna feel successful right, and then you realize you're sit in front of a computer all day long. Yeah. I. Can totally see that. Makes that makes sense I. You're speaking of success to ask the first thing. It's official question. I had and I just I guess, I, felt like starting with this rather than jumping right into the six lanes but. What is success in sport mean to you or? Yeah. So. What it used to meet. Right. So we all have these objectives and goals right, and we think that success when we meet that, we're going to be successful when feel successful yet, what happens when you need it? How long does they last for me? It lasts maybe five minutes and then I'm spending the next stuff in saying, okay. GotTa, start grinding now for the school and realizing that my daily experience wasn't great. So, success for me sport or any endeavor is your daily optimize experience that's sustainable over time. So if you're an athlete of Your Business Guy, whatever it is, if you're living your dream, you're loving your days, you're making a contribution feeling fulfilled. Ben. That's success to me. And so that's how I look at it when I get an athlete that. Wants to scholarship, but he's loving the training loving where he isn't high school having great teammates. Great relationships performing on the field. Every day is not future. You know obsessed all the time that successful to me. That makes sense with the process, right? Like. So often we just look at this. What's the goal? Win The Akron serve get the scholarship, but then, but then what I mean. Eventually it just. Eventually. There's think an emptiness. I mean, it's Nice Scholarships for sure. But at some point you get to the top and. Maybe realize you're on the wrong ladder something, but it's Where I've dealt with the most Olympic athletes after an Olympic year while they struggle. Mightily, they struggle with purpose with focus with what it all means. Up the disappointment of even if they got a medal, did feel as good as they thought. But the daily optimal experience their love in their life in the training or joining, they're enjoying the relationships are building that seems to be sustainable
