"stephen press" Discussed on Broken Brain with Dhru Purohit
"This showed up for me massively when I was creating my first business, you know many listeners of the podcast. No always had great in school was excited to be in university got into university and really became so clear that. Pursuing the traditional education path was not for me. Even though I love education, I didn't necessarily want to get a college degree I wanted to go and create and build a business. So with the reluctant blessings of my parents, I dropped out of school with the commitment and promise that if it didn't work out, I'd go back. And I started working on my first business. It was a web development company called boost and ultimately hired two best friends and we worked on it together. Early on in that I. I thought so much of success was just like being smart and knowing the right thing, and then you go and do it what I had not gotten used to or really. Understood, is that the Resistance Stephen Press fuel calls it the resistance that part of you that does not want to deal with things. I did not realize how powerful the resistance would be inside of me. So I would waste so much time and energy avoiding things and I knew was a problem because when I would think about this thing that was avoiding I will get a sense of angst that would come up that little pit in my stomach that would say, oh I just don't want to deal with it now. Sometimes, it was very Present in my mind and other times, it was in the background. I didn't even know why I felt lack of motivation. I didn't even know why couldn't make progress on things I just didn't feel good, and that's why having avoid list is actually powerful and we'll get to that in a second. But actually that tests that was doing with myself as a good test for you to think about something in your life that is a challenge something that you are avoiding and something that you want to give attention. But you're not giving attention when you're reminded of that thing, does it trigger a little bit of anxiety? Does it trigger a little bit of angst as it trigger a little bit of pain inside of you even if it's light Usually that's an example of something that we are avoiding when we think about that subject that difficult conversation that we're not having that we know we want to have. Making progress on that project, making progress on our house and actually committing to getting some form of movement in. But we keep on not dealing with it, and you know there's a family member of ours got sick recently or or passed away or or has a chronic disease, and that's been a reminder for us that we don't want to end up in that same boat..

"And this is aside from family or anything like that? This is this is this is kind of really. Calling the subject of call your location to win that call comes. That number one that your that will answer it. That you'll not not answered, and on the other hand that you'll be ready that you'll have the tools you know that you'll. You'll have the mental tools and the emotional tools to be able to to respond to that call whatever it is, and then so it is really using your forest analogy.

My definition of man is that that that he will go into those trees and will find a way. or at least give it everything. He's got right to to find that way. Yeah like that. One of the things that we've talked quite a bit about and David Gilmour. Are you familiar with David? Gilmour? He's got a book manhood in the making that really low the worst. He's he's. He talks about and makes the distinction and Jack Donovan Talks about this as well the distinction between being a good man. And being good at being a man, which I think is what you're highlighting here. You're talking about morality. Right coming from this higher plane. And, but that's not enough. It's not enough to be tapped into there. You have to have that capability as well. You have to have the ability to act on your moral thoughts and ideas the direction that you get from that higher plane. Yes, I would say.

"stephen press" Discussed on Beyond Your Wildest Genes
"It's a theory like it's informational. Don't do that make it personal. Because that's what connects to your audience and breaks down that that barrier of trust that's been built up over time. What what's your why I think a few things when you when you talk about the one I think about authenticity and then I think about you because in your book you Utah you get very person in some things are even about your son. Axel when you talk about his twenty year plan of being in the NBA and the NFL and I and it's riddled throughout your book to the point where you know because of who you are. And because of his twenty year goal he's attracted all these incredible coaches and people in his life to help them succeed to reach that goal. And that just that just resonated with me. I can't tell you how much that resonated I'll tell you a quick story My son is a freshman in high school. And he's he's found a niche in cross country and track. And he he. He's he ran in the state sectional as a freshman in winter track. He he thought that he should have been running in a varsity race and he he didn't get selected from the team and he really went Austin rails and because of my podcast and because of who I know what I've done and the connections. I've made those able to connect to a multiple times to I think a friend of Yours Jeff Spencer. Oh Yeah Yeah and and Spencer was able to hop on the phone with my son. And he's an elite coach and he was. He spent an hour with my son. And kinda talk them down to it and and that's something that That's totally invaluable for him. And for me and So very grateful. Yeah no and that's what it takes. I mean you know lucky of access to a guy like Jeff Spencer who has been on teams that have won seven Tour de France in a row. I mean you know listen. The Dude knows what it takes to win. A gold medal knows what it takes to be a world. Champion knows and those are the people who only see the possibilities. Everyone is looking for the impossibilities right. But not a guy like Jeff Spencer. You know he's looking for. How do we win this gold? Not How do we lose this gold? And that's what the world that's how the world thinks about they're thinking about how can I eliminate myself? How can I cancel myself and and you know as we go through as this pen? Pandemic goes on. I find that the people who make things happen regardless of the obstacle standing in front of them will be the ones on the front of this wave wants. The world goes forward. Which by the time people are listening to this? Maybe it has gone forward by now and then the people who are always looking for an opportunity to canceled themselves themselves from greatness. They'll certainly take this pandemic as an excuse to eliminate themselves from greatness. Well said well said now I WANNA talk to you about mindset primarily. Because what's going on and I want to read something right from your book and then maybe see if you could alter it from what's going on today so is from your rules. This is rule number five. I won't go it alone. We're social creatures. Just way we're made we create community living groups. We want connection. We are like tweet us any connection right now other than with our family so when it comes to mind set what what what. What do you have to say about this? Well being that I have lots of say about the situation. We're in now because we're in our homes with our families right so that is your initial team right there. So let's talk about building your team right there because it's true. Nobody wins alone. If you look at anybody who's achieved any kind of greatness all you have to do is look around. Who was around them when they were kids. Who is around them as they were becoming adult? Who's around them? That's the people who build this thing you know. There's this whole theory. It's not a theory. It's it's just it's fact right. The spartans were the greatest warriors right then. They grew up in a warrior culture. That was their culture and Stephen Press wrote. This great book called the warrior does and he talks a lot about the spartans any talks a lot about who has who's responsible for every war that's ever been one and we can. We can push this forward right into elite athleticism elite leadership everything. That's elite here. Today we can draw right back to why why those people are elite and Stephen Press field in the book talks about Spartan Moms. It was the women who decided who won the wars back in Sparta. It was the women who decided who went one every war since that time. So every war. That America's been in that we won. It wasn't the men who won the war. It was the women because if the women buckled under bodybags are under Losing their sons or their husbands if they buckled then the whole country would buckle along with them but the women of Sparta they did not buckle though the spark moms told their kids handed their sons shields and they said come back with this shield or comeback on this shield so they and if you look at anybody who's elite whose ultimate prize fighter An elite athlete an elite. Ceo An elite chiropractor in elite functional medicine. Doctor It is the family that makes them that way because they don't buckle under all the sacrifices and all the pain all the blood and sweat and tears that goes into being elite and as soon as that Spartan mom buckles over you will never reach the top so right now being that. We're you know in our homes with our families. That is where you start building your team from. Is Your family now. Us dads most people think. Oh It's the dad. That makes an elite athlete. No It's never the dad because most of us I had a dad right but most of US elite athletes had no dad's so that's why when you see him on. Tv They always say thanks. Mom Hi mom. They're talking to their MOMS because the moms are the ones that got him into the NFL. Their MOMS who made them heavyweight champion of the world. It wasn't their dad's because a lot of us never had that but dads position now is to be like my position in my family is to have the big vision for them and really be their cheerleader. The MOM is the one like my wife Dawn. She's the one who says my kids get to be elite because on this so on their way to being the best at their chosen fields there's gonna be surgeries. There's going to be the missing of a prom date. There's going to be the Miss Birthday parties. They're going to miss things right. And a mom cannot buckle in those situations. The MOM is the tough one in the soon as the mom goes like this as soon like when? I had my first knee surgery when I was like sixteen or seventeen in high school. What if my mom would have buckled? What if she would have sat in that operating waiting room and said I don't want this for my son. I don't want his dreams to come true if he has to go through knee surgeries like this and I have to sit in the waiting room of this knee surgery. What if she would have done that? Well you know in the end you guys had seven knee surgeries right but what it in. You might think that's a bad thing but what it did give me was perseverance. Was that my mom will not buckle and this. I will go to the top. Come hell or high water and that's what we're building for our family inside our home and that's my wish for everybody who stayed home with your family now. Is You all get behind each other? There's dreams and visions of greatness. And you make sure that that person fulfils on their birthright which is to be the best in the world at their dream at their declaration in in my day to day business. You know we say always that you know the mom stay make all the health care decisions for their family as one hundred percent true mom yet all the healthcare to my story starts with my mother to even though. I have an absolutely fantastic father. My story started with my mother as well so I I get I get you know. There's there's a lot of teams in your book but but one of them is a four step process. I was wondering if you can kind of quickly go over declaration. Preparation acceleration domination. Yeah let's let's talk about declaration. I now this is the very first thing you guys. So it's no different as you might have guessed by now. The declaration of Independence is big in my life because it was written so long ago. And and you and me and our kids and everybody we know at least here in America keeps that vision keeps that declaration alive every day by the way we by the way we live our lives. So the first thing is declaration so most people they were goals elected word mission or the like the word vision. I love this declaration. I love making a declaration. I want to be the best safety in the world. I want to be the best stage performer in the world. I want to be the best speaker in the world. I WANNA be the first guy to play in the NBA or any in the NFL at the same time. I want to be the best pastry chef I want to be the best Ballerina in the world. Those are those are declarations that you live you bring to life on day one of the declaration. You start living it now today. You don't have to wait and do a big to do list to reach this. You have to start living it today. That declaration you bring it to life and so does your whole family. I Love Declaration. That's why I use that term decorated. So all of you have to have that. And here's a little tip. Use The word. The best in your declaration. Use the term the best. Because if you don't you're GONNA get second-best right because whatever your declaration is this is my bent been my experience my whole life. I've been doing this since I was nine. they're gonNA it's GONNA come true so it's hard to be mediocre right and it's hard to be the best so it's equally is hard right because you know it's just GonNa take a lot of work for you to be second best or third best or or media a hundred and thirty seventh best. It's going to take a lot of work for you. Get there so you might as well. It's GonNa take to you the same work to be the best.

Now if you've been itching to start a business but you are overwhelmed with how to actually get started. This one is for you. Today's question comes from Edina who writes. Hey Marie I recently left my job as a school counselor to become a parenting coach. Now it's time to actually get out there and do it but I feel tremendously overwhelmed and have no clue how to sign a client. I understand you say to start before you're ready. But there's only so much brainstorming and strategizing I do. I feel like I'm in a catch. Twenty two where? I can't sign clients without good marketing but I can't tweak my marketing without clients help Edina. This is a fantastic question. So first little bit clarification here starting before you're ready does not mean spending weeks or months brainstorming or strategizing no. It doesn't what it does mean is training yourself to get out there and do the actual work with real helmets. And I gotTA BE HONEST WITH YOU LOVE. You do not need fancy marketing to get yourself some clients and sorry you are not in a catch twenty two. I think you're just a little scared. And my darling that is okay look we. Humans often learn best by example. So here are two entrepreneur. Who started before they were ready so to speak? So you can see exactly what that looks like in real life you up for good. Let's go so first. Let's look at Lisa Price. Who's the founder of the Natural Hair Care Brand Carol's daughter so at least I got her start in the eighties? She was playing with fragrances and essential oils. Inner kitchen in Brooklyn now. At first she gave what she made aware friends and family but her mom smartly encouraged her to start selling her goods at our churches flea market now. Lisa never planned to really even start a business but she thought hey why not. Worst case scenario. She'd have a fun day out. Well guess what happened. She sold out of every single thing and then she spent the rest of the Sun are going to craft festivals so she slowly started to build a following and our customers actually started to ask if she had anything for their hair now. Initially she didn't so she went home. And guess what she did. She figured out how to make hair products because yes. Everything is figure out a ball now Lisa than gave those hair products two hairdressers. She got their feedback and then she started to make improvements so little by little. Lisa kept growing her business until eventually. Guess what her business was. Not so little anymore fast. Forward to twenty fourteen. Lisa's company was acquired by Lori. Now Look Lisa started. Before she was ready she did start off with any fancy marketing. She didn't have any marketing whatsoever but she took action. She gave away her products. She got feedback. She kept iterating and adjusting from there. Now the next example is brandon. Stanton the photographer behind the amazing blog. Humans of New York. So here's what happened. Brandon lost his job in the financial industry so he had always had this interest in photography but he didn't have any experience and he didn't even own a camera but here's one thing he did no. He did not want to go back to that job back to that industry which made him so unhappy. His goal is really to simplify. He just wanted to earn enough money to keep a roof over his head so that I can do what he really wanted to do which was take photos so he moved to New York City and he committed to this taking ten thousand photos of people on the street and plotting them on the map and while he was doing this he ate cheerios. He Ate Turkey sandwiches and he slept on a mattress on the floor. This guy spent thousands and thousands of hours editing thousands and thousands of photos. Learning what worked. And what didn't and he also started getting really comfortable talking with and interviewing strangers on the street while he was photographing him which eventually transformed into humans of New York the beloved brand and business that we all know about today so Brennan got over twenty five million followers. He created two bestselling books to now just like Lisa. He didn't start off with any fancy marketing right. He just started before he was ready. He started taking action. He allowed himself to learn and really grow along the way. So for you Edina. If you WANNA be a parenting coach. Guess what you need to start coaching. Damn parents woman. You need to get out there and do the work even if you got to do it for free so if I were you I would make a list of every single parent that I knew I would send them an email or text message or smoke signal.

Thinking About Writing A Book?
"Are released a book last year. It's called big podcast. Grow your podcast audience build listener loyalty and get everybody talking about your show. This book is available. Everywhere it is on kindle is in paperback and very soon I will have an audiobook version of it for you. I read every single word. I read every single word probably five times because I don't know how to read that. Well just kidding but as a podcast. Your people are listening to me. I kinda got a little bit of perfectionism going right. I wanted it to be something. I was proud of a wanted it to be something that would last. So I've gone through this piece by piece. Edited it together myself and that is almost done definitely within next month. I'll let you know about it. I don't WanNa get too much on this episode because I want to focus on a portion of an interview that I did with a guy named grant Baldwin. You may know him from the Speaker Lab. Podcast if you're interested in building a speaking business. He has a new book. It's called the successful speaker. Five steps for booking gigs getting paid and building your platform. He did it with a guy named Jeff coins. You may know Jeff from his own books. He's got a great book. Called real artists. Don't starve and if you're into books. War of art by Stephen Press Field. If you're in a mindset books. I think you'll really like it. Jeff worked with grant on this book. The successful speaker to package grants information into a book. Format grand has all this public speaking knowledge. He does podcast. He's done a lot of interviews. He may be in the same situation. That you're in your Talker europe-wide castor you speak to but maybe you don't right so part of this conversation with grant. I asked him about that. I have about working with Jeff joins using jeff as a ghostwriter to package his information and here is that portion of the interview speaking of expansion. You do the new book the Successful Speaker. A lot of people start the book. Go to speaking to promote it. You start with speaking now. You've got a book which you're also promoting via speaking among other things. Let's talk about this. I want to know how you got the deal. Did they approach you and by that? I mean Baker. The publisher was because you were known or did you have to go to them. Talk about how you got this deal. Publishers are typically looking for people that have an audience and can ultimately sell books and so that was something that that we definitely had with our audience so I was a full week for several years and then a few years ago. We'd started the speech lab where we're doing more training and coaching for other speakers. As we built up a significant audience and email lists and social media following of people who are interested in speaking. Not everyone wants to be a fulltime speaker when there's plenty of people who are interested in speaking to various degrees. That was something that was certainly appealing to them in terms of us being able to promote and sell books and get the word out on on a book the backstory would be I worked with our mutual. Jeff going on this and Jeff had reached out a one point like hey. Do you have any interest in doing a book at any point? Like not really like I had done a a self published book. A few years ago had done well but I like I just don't enjoy writing like I prefer podcast audio and speaking and I just don't writing is not my favorite thing. Let Me Stop You when you say. Dunwell of heard you talk about the numbers. You had pretty good numbers on that. Self-published book yeah and it was so as a when I was doing speaking of doing a lot with Initiative on a lot with students doing a lot with with high school student and collisions So we sold the books for them and sold over thirty thousand physical copies of the book. I don't know where that ranks in terms of of Of Average book sales. Let me have you think of like this. This is what a guy told me from the music industry one time he said If you think thousand CDs isn't a lot look at what a thousand CDs is and you. Imagine thirty thousand bucks. That's a lot of books man. Yeah that's the book did fine and so I think from a bucket list item of just like check the box. I wrote a book. I wrote every single word of that book like all right. I'm done I'm good. I don't need I don't need to read it but I see the value of a book. You didn't feel that on on because it says with Jeff going and I was curious about that to basically the way it came to be as Jeff asked me like. Hey Do you have any interest in doing a book? I was like really. He had a friend with Baker the publisher and said hey the they might be interested. Are you interested in doing something? Like I duNNo. Maybe we had a couple of conversations with Baker and so finally came back and said all right. Here's the deal. You have a ton of content already around speaking so done. Hundreds of podcasts episode with multiple courses of done. A lot of interviews have a lot of cases that they have a lot of experience on all things speaking a lot of success stories. He said what if what if I was kind of the writer for I took all that content and I just kind of synthesized it. It's all your content. It's all your materials all your voice. I'm just describe. Would you be interested in something like that? Like Yeah Heck Yeah I'd love that'd be awesome. You know white publisher said we want to give you a bunch of money for Jeff going to write your book. Yeah where do I sign up for that? So that's essentially what it turned out to be is Jeff is kind of a non ghostwriter ghost rider and so it's all my content but he was the one that took that content and to turn it into Book Form Jeff as extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the publishing space and writing books and crafting books and so he was absolutely amazing to work with had a great experience and so different are written in different ways in terms of like a lot of well known. Authors have ghostwriter meant to be a ghost. That's unknown also Jeff. Yeah Jeff was very much like I said from the beginning like I have no problem talking about like jeff part of this project and the project would have happened without Jeff. So that's a little of the behind the Music

This one should be quick kind of fun but I think it's important. Today's this topic is nobody wants to invest in your shit. Lot of you will probably read this on. The blog is a recent one. I pinned in February but I think it's a really fun topic that hopefully fleet will let you think about investing differently and become a better investor so let's get started. Nobody wants to read your shit is not an email received from angry reader or received many similar ones over the years. Although West stuff is pretty boring in quantity so I don't get as much hate. Mail is probably a lot of people do but that's is actually the title of a fun book on the topic of writing those published several years ago by the author of Bagger Vance and other titles Stephen Press Field also wrote a book that I haven't read yet that a lot of people have mentioned and since this article called the war of Art there was great but here's a passage from nobody wants to readership that explains a general takeaway when you understand that nobody wants to read your shit. Your mind becomes uh-huh powerfully concentrated. You begin to understand that writing reading is above aw transaction the reader donates his time and attention which are supremely invaluable commodities in return you the writer must give him something worthy of his gift to you.

Fear vs. Intuition: How to Tell the Difference
"Not to do something sometimes they feel the same but a flat stomach and I cannot separate them and Eve right hot and sexy tip is about to get Brian Hutton sexy up here. Yao All right. I am really excited to a queue because it's one of the common ones I get. I've got two strategies today to help view hone in on how to tell the difference between fear and intuition first one is this. You've got this question that you can ask yourself to tap into your natural knowing each us has a natural knowing. It's something like a body knowing kind of like your intuition and it's simple question and it goes like this when you think about doing the thing that you're talking about confused or scared to do it. Do you feel expansive or contracted. So Gray says she has no idea what the hell that means. Let's dive into what expansive mean so if you think about something and you feel expansive. It's kind of like your shoulders open up. Your chest opens up. You get really excited. Even if there's a little bit of fear involved. It feels like Oh my God. I really love to do that. There's kind of like a forward forward motion everything expanse now. Let's talk about contracted so that feeling if you think about doing the thing you're thinking about doing and all of a sudden you start to kind of pull. Dan Or your head starts to shake. No you start to feel a sense of dread or like God that feels like pulling teeth fast sense of contraction and that's how you know if it's detracted feeling that's your intuition or your gut telling you stay away. Honey do not go near that thing with a ten foot pole on the other hand. If you feel expansive and you still have some fear go for it. It's a good thing enough see now. She gets strategy number two. You want to kind abuse that same inner ability but this time you're going to pull in your friends and here's what I mean so as a coach I often work with people and they'll tell me about the projects that are coming up and I just watch them and it's really interesting because when people start to talk about their ideas and things that they WANNA do their body doesn't like Alexa cures my body never lies and when you hear someone talking about something that they really shouldn't do. They actually start to dead like they get pasty. They start to look depressed almost like their body language starts to pull in and then when people talk about something that they're really excited about that they should do even though it scares the crap out of them they light up like a gain. Christmas tree so here's implement this you gotta get some good friends around you and you. WanNa talk through the ideas or this opportunity that you're not sure if you should take or not and have have them really pay attention now. Of course it's important that these friends are honest that you trust them and that they actually care about you and I promise you talk through this and they'll be able to tell hot minute whether or not you should go for it just based on how your body and your face is reacting now finally leave with an awesome quote from my friend. Steven Spielberg eld who I interviewed yeah he has this awesome quote which set the more important project project is to your souls evolution. The more you'll resist it blew.

I was like, is it are there like a lot of people coming through at this time of night? He's like, Nope. Ninety percent of the time. It's pretty quiet. And then every once in a while somebody comes through and I was like so were the people for right now, and he says, yes. And we have so much fun talking to Joe at this convenience store, somewhere in Kentucky at one AM. Yeah. Partway. Because when you embrace it when you embrace the partway you start seeing all these things that are lurking in the party. Kristen was just reading Stephen press fields book ongoing pro the follow up to his book war of art, obviously can't recommend Stephen press 'field enough. His book war of art. I haven't read the, the new going pro one the one after that. But Kristen was reading it. And she sent me this, quote, Stephen press field says this in the end for me it comes down to the work itself. A appro gets younger and more innocent, as he or she ascends through the levels, by the way, I seem the levels are something in the book. Appro gets younger and more innocent, as he or she ascends to the levels. It's a paradox. We get salty and cynical, but we what but we creep closer to to the wonder. You have to or you can't keep going, any other motivation will burn you out. Oh, let's just say it raise your glasses. So good, essentially press fueled says, man, if you wanna go pro the part way is where you find the wonder it's where you find. I am doing this. I get to do this. What a privilege what a joy. What a on her. Yes. Yeah. This, this is how it works is when you come to see the partway in a new way, you're changing the diaper, you're sitting in traffic again, you're filling out another report and ode to part, way acknowledges, this is all part of it. And this is actually quite sacred in. You're finding the wonder. In the partway member. When I used to dream about this now I'm actually doing it and it's really difficult. How awesome is this? I'm actually doing the thing. Remember when we used to talk about a better, we used to talk about having our own house? Now, we have it, and there's rats in the roof and the guy who fixed the rats actually caused a hole. So now it's leaking. But remember when we dreamed of this, oh, years, what you're discovering? Is. The extraordinary resources and depths of joy that are available when.
"stephen press" Discussed on Hurry Slowly
"Wet Stephen press field would call the resistance. I'm not a procrastinator. I have a very very good probably overactive work ethic part of that is to manifest sense of worthiness in purpose. But the other part is that I just really like working, and I really like working hard, and I like being engaged in something really deeply, so I wouldn't I wouldn't say that I qualify for that second category. I don't ever feel like I'm procrastinating. There are times where I can be lazy. But that's usually because I'm running on fumes and can no longer lift my arms. But in terms of when to know when to give up, you know, when to fold. That I don't really know from a professional standpoint. I don't know that I've ever given up. I've walked away when I felt like I was finished. But it wasn't because I failed was because I was ready to do something else. It wasn't in defeat. The only thing that I really have walked away from is. Unhealthy negative behavior. Either that I was engaged in or that I was engaged in with others. Right. But if we maybe shift their perspective from say a job to you know, a creative project you've written a number of books. Right. So that's like a very different situation. And so for talking less about career and more about creative projects, right? There is the element of having to sometimes put it down sometimes set it aside. But also, no one to move forward. And the no one to say this thing is finished. I've put enough time into it. So how does that play out for you? In terms of those projects, usually I'm very deadline oriented, I never hand in something early. No one is ever going to be surprised by my submitting something a week before its due. So I tend to work really really well with deadlines I tend to work really really well with. Creating lists for myself. And then having the joy of crossing something awful list. I'm very into analog writing things down crossing things off. I have a paper calendar. Everything that I do is sort of in that journals slash calendar. One thing that I did get a little bit in trouble for when I was working on look both ways my first book of illustrated essays because that was a book that came really out of nowhere and from nothing. It was a an idea that I had that came out of a class at I take taken with Milton Glaser in two thousand and five wherein we had to envision our five year plan, which is now turned for me into a ten year plan that I teach my younger students because they tend to be as because they're younger they have more runway. But at the time, it was to envision one's life sort of the way, you hope to could be if anything you. Wanted could be manifested. And because I had declared this list of things that I wanted one was a book was writing a book of illustrated essays, and because I'd had a relationship at the time with how magazine which also had an imprint called how books I sent a query to the acquisitions editor who was also on the editorial staff of the magazine, and they'd always been really nice to me. And I thought, you know, why not I ended up not hearing back from Meghan, Patrick the woman who was doing the job at the time. But then six weeks later, I wrote her again and said, hey, you know, I didn't hear back. No. So I figured why not paying her again and said, hey, Megan did you ever get that query? I sent you about this book of illustrated essays that I want to try and do and she said, no, I didn't didn't I believe her because it was a very gigantic file that I stupidly sent. I ended up sending it again via transfer service. And she. Got it showed it to the editor aerial board. And then they ended up agreeing to publish this book. I hadn't actually made any illustrated essays other than the one sample essay for the pitch. I had a make this whole book from scratch and the last time I had done any kind of Elise illustrated essay making was least ten if not fifteen years before. So all of a sudden now, I'm faced with having to do something that I haven't done in a really long time that I'm no publishing a book about and so I took a buddy year to do it. But what happens when you start doing something that you are doing regularly over and over and over you get better at it. And so by the eight or nine month, Mark, you could see the vast improvement that I'd made in the work from eight months prior. So then I started redoing everything. And so at that point, I ended up being cut off by the publisher, which you know, a couple of months after the deadline. They were like, okay, you're now officially cut off. You can't redo any of the essays. What we have is great. We're going to market with it. And I still look back at that book and think off I'd only had like another six months, it could have been so much better a little embarrassed by it. But it was a good lesson in really how to get better at doing something. So coming back to the ten year plan that you mentioned you were saying you go through that

Oh, sure. Well, terms of parting thoughts once again, I think he should be commended for running an initiative like this.

That I can certainly be reached for my random musings on social media via Twitter at a rematch use MD, and I'm also available on Lincoln. I run a small medical education, our website called Narco medical, and we make things for health sciences students, and that's also kind of interesting to chat about but really in terms of losing this out..

What sets apart successful investors from those who give up fail or never get started. Mindset it's fairly a it's how people think their beliefs about themselves or beliefs about money their beliefs about just what what they can accomplish in deserve ability. You know, ultimately, if somebody feels that wealthy people are bad or money's bad. They're not going to do what they need to do in order to become wealthy of they think that they are not deserving a some some way fundamentally then they're not going to be able to ask or go get into those relationships that are crucial because they're going to think, well, you know, why would anybody want to work with me?

"Much more prominently in our popular culture. Like I said at the beginning. We don't make movies or write books. About athens. Really not so very many not. So very many want me. Here's an even when we do. They're not that popular compared to the ones about Spartan like. So like Stephen press fueled is all those fictional accounts of Athens in in Sparta. He did one about that author mop ally with the gates of fire in the three hundred and that's got over fifteen hundred views on Amazon, then he has a novel that centers on Athens, and that only has tides of war that only has one hundred eighty two reviews like what he think we feel like we have more in common with Athens. But we actually when we make our choices about what we want to watch or read it's about Sparta. Well, are what we want to name our football teams after right? Yeah. We we I'm in Michigan here. And and Michigan state has the Spartans. And I I wish that they would invite me to give a lecture during halftime at a Michigan state game about the real Spartans. But they haven't done that yet. I've even been invited to give a talk on Sparta at at at the. University proper yet someday, it may come someone may think gosh, we really ought to do this. But the it's their mop ally that that gives the Spartans they're they're sort of cultural leverage. You have three hundred men who fight to the death against an invading Persian army knowing perfectly well that they're going to die and this impressed. The Greeks actually impressed the Spartans back home a lot it set a standard for them that was hard to live up to and in depressed. The Greeks enormously the Athenian victory at Salomons was extremely important, but it didn't impress the Greeks as much as the Spartans willingness to die at their monthly in in the way, they did and their relatives. Success in stopping the whole Persian army at a choke point, you know, until Zirk Z sins ten thousand Persians. Around the mountain to get behind the Spartans that story is very very powerful. So you know, if you look at the public schools in Britain that they weren't modeled on Athens. They were modelled on Sparta if you think about the United States marines, they're not modeled on Athens. They're they're modeled on Sparta. So it's it's awed within a bourgeoisie society organized around commerce around sort of global trade, and so forth that more nearly resembles Athens..

"So that's what I tried to do. I got really bored. I knew I had a deadline. No one else was waiting for the deadline on my own boss. But I used that pressure that I invented for myself to say there are things you are frayed to write down there things you're afraid to assert. But you have to do it or else you can't keep talking about this thing anymore. How do you train yourself to take self imposed deadlines? Seriously, is it because you have a cost and a trip with a start in a finish in the form of this three day trip to the desert is it telling other people, you respect that you're going to do this. So that you have some shame. If you don't deliver or is it just a conditioned response by doing it repeatedly somehow. But I I'd love to know how you would explain that because people miss deadlines all the time that they share for themselves. Great question. I don't know many people with more willpower than me, I think you are one of them. I don't know how you do it. But my method is only talk about the deadlines hit. But I made it I made a decision of very very long time ago. Probably when I was eighteen or twenty. Why said look there's a whole bunch of work. I'm just not wanting to do I'm not willing to be the person who takes good notes. I'm not willing to be the person who memorize is. I'm not willing to be the person who can sit there for eight hours doing what the boss says. I'm just not that person that kill me. So I got to do something else to be worth something. So here's what I'm going to be. I'm going to be the person who never misses it deadline. I'm going to be the person who has very strict rules about what I do what I don't do. And so I became a vegetarian. I haven't had chicken. I don't twenty thirty years, and it doesn't even tempt me. And I've never done drugs doesn't even tempt me because I made this decision once. And so I'm really careful about promising a deadline. I'm really careful about sending it for project. But once I do deals done, and I don't have to revisit it. And I get people rest. Wrestle with temptation, all the time. And I'm not saying that the method. I'm describing is easy. But I am saying when we talk about bosses we admire we talked about business leaders or political leaders who are states people, and we looked to them with respect. I think you look at yourself that same way if you choose and keep part of it is to say, I'm not going to be situational about my decision making. I'm going to be strategic about my decision making, and that choice, you only have to make that choice once and you're not gonna be great at it at first, but you can stop acting like a fourteen year old and start acting like a grown up and professional which means and someplace I've gotten in trouble before authenticity is totally overrated. Totally that I don't want an authentic surgeon who says I don't really feel like niece injury. I wanna professional. Whatever they feel like right, right? So there are days that you will see me give a talk or see me, right or something. It is not my authentic monkey brain saying, whatever pops into a Ted. This is me playing the role of Seth Godin being the professional who does what he said he was going to do. And if that bothers people that I'm not always offensive. I'm sorry. But at least I'm consistent. I love that. I really do. Yes. Yes. Is my way of agreeing with that statement. I've never heard it put quite that way. But I really do not want north edict surgeon who decides halfway through that. He's it's really just not his passion to finish. My niece surgery. Closer related to that. Is something you've talked about it so closely related, maybe it's just an inescapable facet of all these things we're talking about it would seem is this lizard brain. And you've you've written and spoken about the lizard brain before in an interview. Josh kaufman. You say that when you hear quote, the lizard brain, the scared voice with Stephen press fueled calls, the resistance, and I think in brackets have you do precisely what it is afraid of..

"Family or business associates who really do need to change some directions on their life or that kind of end the rut and they need to get onto their artists, aren't they are the hero's journey just pay their bills than Stephen press fills bucks are. The best. So once again, I love cheapens books. You know the one of the things I love was the war of art. That book was really helpful to me because in a Stephen talks about how every morning he gets up any faces a blank screen on his computer. Well, that's my life too. And as I said earlier, is I haven't done anything. I love. I mean, I really hated school by teach, and I really hate writing, but I right. And yet it kind of just gets me down the road every day, but the hardest choices every morning when I get up, you know, there's two people talking to me in bed, fat boy, and healthy boy and fat. Boy usually wins. Okay. You don't have to go to the gym this morning. You know, you can have your croissants and bagels and cream cheese and a Cup of coffee. And I love fatboy because he tells me everything. I want to hear any comments come. Well, that's what Stephen would call resistance, and we all have it and we all face it every single day. And what what I want to ask you, Steve is why people continue to struggle the, they're in the rat race. They've they're doing what they've been told to do. Go get a job, make a living your bills. Have kids do all of that and how to you, how to make that shift to where you're you find meaning in your life. And I and I want to just go to one point a couple points in your book because you talk about making that shift from to being the artist and what are p? Why are people afraid of of what is the artist of frayed of? And you talk about is fear of the unknown. And I think this applies to everybody. We've talked to whether they're doing real estate investing, whether they're building a business, this fear of the unknown of going into that place and letting go of the familiar is is scary for a lot of people. And that's why they don't make that show one of the hang onto a job. They know. Right, exactly. And I love your comments on that. Steve, what we are terrified of the unknown. I mean, that's the that's sort of I think everybody can agree on that, but yet it's even on the one sentence you can say, well, if I have a job and I leave my job, that's going into the unknown. How am I ever going to support myself? What am I gonna do? That's one form of being afraid of the unknown. And of course it's completely valid. You should be because it is scary. Then there's the other way of thinking about the unknown from the artist when you and that is, let's say you're sitting down to write a book. What's he gonna write a novel where you're gonna make a movie now you're you're really plunging into the unknown in the sense of, well, what am I going to write about? And once I once I do enter once I do commit to whatever that project is, how do I know how it's going to come out? How do I know what you're not going to be a complete disaster? How do I know? I'm not. I'm gonna even get to the finish line. That's the sort of the artists on. And as you were saying in the break and we were talking about from the artists point of view, you have to leave the sort of a conscious mind and go into the unconscious mind. You have to sort of reach into that dark place and pull something back out..

"The edge of the pool. That's if you're a guy, do. Do the implant, staff, implants, people don't realize how much those Instagram girls make like just feature a product. I mean, do like five to ten of them one time. Oh, yeah. You know what, though they have to have so many to make that big of an. That's not a sustainable business model. I tell people this all the time, like if you're chasing likes and followers in hopes that you're going to build a business and you and you're chasing that so hard, you don't even really have a great product or you're not providing them a lot of value to someone's life even if you do cash out because you get to two million and then you start flipping t shirts or trying to percent commission on supplements. And the question becomes, what are you gonna be proud of. Right. And and. So Ryan holiday author of egos the enemy. As this other book, he followed it up with an embarrassed tools away yet. No, not obstacle is the way another book about writing a really good book like riding your classic riding your masterpiece writing, something you'd be proud of. I forget it may maybe they must be as newest one it that his newest one, it's a Ryan holiday, maybe Ryan holy article, but I coulda sworn, it's it's an actual. I was only familiar with us goes way e egos. The NFL we'll we'll, we'll find out. Stephen press filled has has some very similar ideas. You know, in his books like the the war of art, you know about creating a masterpiece of that you're going to be really proud of you for me. This is my one hundred percent focus on this book. I'm working on right now. I've turned down publishers. I've turned down agents, people who wants to get this thing too big, New York publishing houses because I know that the kind of huge life changing last book you'll ever need for health kind of book that I want to write is something that you know, like. Earlier it is is not going to be like that popular book that that that's going to be potentially something you see an airport bookstores, but I want to create something not only with kion, but also with my books that I can stand by and be very proud of. And if you build your entire business around some Instagram account where you're featuring products and getting paid five k. for you know, whatever a, that's it's difficult to be proud of that as a life changing business and be, what are you gonna do when you're, you know, seventy years old and wrinkled. I don't think. I also don't think it's going to last very long. I don't think it's going to be. I think it's popular right now because it's so fresh and so new and it works. Oh, perennial cellar. Yes. Sorry, Adam, no, no, good. I I wanted to know what it was anyone's seller. Two thousand seventeen. That's it's a newer one. There's also a big. There's also a massive, massive risk in terms of your own sanity when you so strongly identify with your appearance and how you look and how sexy you are. Because at some point that's going to change at some point you're going to age like you said, and I know you make the joke. What do you do in your seventy? You'll, here's all the evidence you need look at. Look at all these celebrities who are reaching their forties, fifties, and sixties the amount of plastic surgery and the boat talks and the drug abuse and things that start to happen because you identify so strongly with your appearance and people love you for it, but then it goes away and then what who are you? What are you? Is it very scary place to be the fastest triathlete on the face of the planet is going to have joint degradation. Some point swimsuit illustrated. Cover model is is going to according to pop culture standards. Probably look like shit when she's eighty five, at least with the clothes off and even the even the CEO who's ultra successful, which is kind of a different form of almo- almost like a, you know, a potentially shallow thing that you could put too much trust in a, you know, eventually that money's gonna be gone and they're going to be laying on their bed, you know, or that money isn't going to be as important. And so I think even deeper than this even deeper than building a business is just you yourself right building you rather than just focusing on the body or just folks him biohacking the brain actually focusing now.
