"Sharing life's journey with? Is that why you want love? It could be, that seems like a nice thing. It seems like a nice wholesome thing to want love for. But is it because of that or is it because you want to show off to your friends? Or is it to have somebody to treat as your therapist? Or somebody to treat as your energy lifeline that you could just suck off their energy and take it all and so that you can keep it for yourself. Is that why you want to have somebody to love? Um, that doesn't seem like a good reason. And what about to prove that you're worthy of love? Is that the reason just so that you can prove to yourself or others that you're worthy of love? Why? Why? Because you're worthy of love. If you can love yourself then you're worthy of love. So why? Is it to have somebody to mirror your love back to you and have this reflection of two loving beings reflecting love back and forth to one another and outwards to the rest of the community? Or is it to help you feel less unloved? Because if you're feeling less unloved, then you should really stop address the reason that you feel unloved and work through that and grow out of that and find a way to love yourself because that's where it all begins is loving yourself. So what less and provide something of value, give to the community, give to others, be something that is a teacher, be somebody who is a helper. Somebody who's a volunteer, somebody who's a giver, somebody who has information, somebody who has experiences, somebody who brings and lifts people up and you know what? Sooner or later, love will find you because you have created that value and you've gone from being a buyer to a seller. Which brings us back to that garden example that I brought up in the very beginning. If you had a gallon of water and you had a garden in your apartment and you thought that that gallon of water wouldn't last you, you had the whole week until you got another load of water, but it wouldn't last you for the full week. And you started making a fuss thinking, oh my gosh, I need a new gallon of water tomorrow 'cause I'm used to put in a gallon of water in my garden every day. And you start as saying to everybody, where can I get water? Oh my gosh, where can I get this water? You need to give it to me. Please, please, please give me that water. Then the suppliers, the water and ice stores, they're going to know you as that crazy over watering person who is ranting and raving about how they need to put a gallon of water in their garden every single day. They're going to, you're going to instead you want to learn what your garden needs, educate yourself, find out that a gallon of water will last a week. There's no problem. You got it all covered. You got a gallon of water, you got a garden, and that garden will live if you water it throughout the week with that gallon of water. So you need to grow to the point to know that everything is okay, and there's no need to panic. And help others with their gardens. Now that you know this information, share it with other people, list other people up that are water in their gardens and tell them how to treat their gardens, how to nurture their gardens, how much water it needs, how to water it, and what kind of plants they want to have in their garden. And then people will go out of their way to help you. They'll say, that person, he's so helpful. He's so kind, she's so loving. She's showing all these people how to do things. The right way to help them with the things that they are that they need, and so this is the type of person that I like. And maybe they won't. And if they don't, maybe it's because they've been hurt, but that's out of your control. And you have to let that go. And give them time to grow on their own. But likely, they will want your help. They will want to be associated with you because you are a creator of value. And they will want to be associated with your garden. And they'll be throwing water at you, giving you ample supply of water for your garden so that you will no longer be wanting, you will have what you need because you provided to the others and now they are providing to you. So that one thing that you thought you wanted so, so bad, once you stopped focusing on the want and then focusing on providing then you will get everything that you want in return. It's supply and demand. It's the law of just desserts. It's positively tea. And if you want to learn more about that, if you want to learn more about just desserts, then check out positively T dot com. It's all described in there. It's all within the attitude. Everything has an appropriate consequence or reward. And the reward of doing the right thing is getting everything that's right, done to you. So want less provide and reap the rewards. It's coming your way. My name is Troy Harris, and this is positively tea. Thanks for watching and enjoy the rest of your week. Bye bye..

"Success, status, money, or love. And they're all types of success. But how do we get, well, it seems that people want these things, but after as much as they want it, it seems to evade them because of the simple rule of supply and demand. And you could have these things instead of wanting them by providing when you don't have enough, your demand drives the supply down. And it's as if you had a gallon of water and found that it wasn't enough to feed your garden in a week. So you're looking around trying to find ways to water that garden and you're just not able to. It's just like that. So you want it, you want these things status money in love, but it continues to evade you because the simple law of supply and demand. And if you were to provide instead of wanting, then you would have these things that you want. Let's explain it a little further. Status. What are we talking about when we say status? Well, I'm talking about having a title. It's that job that you're trying to get, that promotion, that you want, but you don't quite have. Maybe you look at your friend and he has or she has a status that you wish you had and you're trying to find a way to get that same status. What does it do for you? Well, for one, it's probably going to boost your self esteem. You're going to feel a little bit better about yourself once you achieve that status that you think you want. And you're going to have a sense of accomplishment. You're going to say, you know, I wanted that thing and I got that thing. I feel good. But why do you want the things? Ask yourself that, is it to match the level of accomplishment and worth that you have? Or is it to fill a void? You have to really ask yourself the reason, because of it to fill a void, then something else might be wrong there. If it's to prove the haters wrong, oh man, once I get this status, once I get this title, all the people that ever doubted me, they're going to be feeling so shameful. Well, you know what? They're not the ones that are feeling shameful. You should be feeling shameful for having thoughts like that as the motivation. Because it doesn't have to come from a place that like that. And that's the reason why those things are evading you. That's the reason why status has evaded you. It's because you want what you have not earned. You have to earn the status. The thing that you want has a high cost. Now, it doesn't mean that you have to pay money for it, but it means that you have to be worthy of it. You have to do the things that it takes in many places in many companies. They're looking for the right type of person, not just somebody who can simply get a job done. They need a person first. A man first, a woman first, somebody who shares the same values as the company first. And once you accomplish those things, then you're providing then you're setting an example for others, then you're able to achieve that status. So you have to earn these things. And to earn, you must create value. That is making something giving something that is going to help out others in some type of way. Once you start doing that, you go from being a buyer to being a seller and that's how the law of supply and demand works when the price is high, it allows more sellers to sell because they want to make things that have a high price. But it causes buyers to decrease. So right now, if you're a buyer and you want that high cost status, then you're not going to be able to achieve it because you're not selling. So the status and the cost of the status stays the same. But if you switch from being a buyer to being a seller by providing and creating value that you're giving to others, then you're going to be making that status attract you, making that status, find you. And that's where you want to be. Go from buyer to seller and the status finds you. Let's talk about money. Why do you want money? Hey, do you want money? I'd be lying to you if I said I didn't want money. Most people want money. But how do we get it? And why do we want it? Is it to pay for a nice thanks? Um. Well, it could be. Let's see what else. What other reasons might there be? Is it to live more comfortably? All right, well, you know, nothing wrong with that, live more comfortably. Who would it like to be a little bit more comfortable? Have that so to be a little bit more crisp, have that recliner sit a little bit further back? That's the type of life that you want. Isn't it? Um. How about finding money making opportunities? Is that what money has you doing? Does it have you looking for new and different ways to make money? How ethical are these ways of making money? Are you gambling to find more money? Are you hustling to find more money? Huh, I wonder how badly do you need that money? Bad enough to lower yourself, boom. Maybe I don't know. Maybe you want to rethink that. Because maybe you want the money to pay off the debts, but what are the debts from? What did you spend the money on? They got you in debt. And is that something that was necessary? And let's see what other reasons. Is it to prove others wrong? Is it that you want that money so that so that you can say to others, ha ha, look what you thought I couldn't do, but I actually did do. Then maybe you need to check that about yourself. Is it, you know, there's a popular saying that money is a score. That all people are playing for in the game. But that's actually not correct. Because the total necessary of money that people need is different from person to person. So you can have less money than someone else, but if you have enough money, if you have your total necessary money for your own satisfaction, then you've won, you have the high score. So have enough appreciate, and that's not only appreciate what you have, but as a person grow in value, meaning appreciate and stop wanting, but you will actually get it because it will follow you as you create value and give it to others. Now how about those people who want love? Are you out there, people? I wonder, all right. Let's talk about it. Why do you want love? Is it to have someone that will give you affection? Is it to have someone to enjoy the bedroom time with? Um, you know it is, for some people, is there anything wrong with that? I don't know. Who am I to judge? And.

"This whole thing that I'm offering is a mindset. It's called positively tea and you're tuned into it right now. And that's what I wanted to do. I wanted to help others. And that's who I am. Somebody who's helping others. Somebody who's been through some hard times really hard times in comparison to some, not so hard times in comparison to others. But in my opinion, you're able to have your opinion. But in mind, I've come a long way. I've addressed my trauma and now I'm serving others. And if you want to see about my mindset and learn about what it was exactly, that got me putting my advices behind me, haven't had a drink since Thanksgiving and it's now February 4th. If you want to see what it is, you can check out my site at positively T dot com. But if not, that's okay. Because the message here is that before you judge others, show compassion. You never know what's going on in their life, what's leading them to do what they do. And what their motivations are. So in the end, my message to you is serve the community in your own way, whatever that may be. And love yourself, first and foremost. Because that ladies and gentlemen is what it's all about. Thank you. My name is Troy Harris, peace and love and enjoy the rest of your day. Bye bye..

"Hello, everybody. Welcome to a brand new episode of positively tea. I'm your host, Troy Harris. Welcome back. And I know what you're saying. Oh gosh, here goes that annoying guy again. Thinking heat a black Tony Robbins, they can hear the modern day Martin Luther King, who does he think he is the snap. But hold up. I know you thinking that I'm a clout chaser. But hold up. You don't know me. These are opinions. And yes, opinions you get to decide. But what you don't get to decide are facts. And let me tell you some facts about who I am. I'm Troy. I was born on April 24th, 1984. I was born to a black mother and father. My mother worked at a bakery when I was born. And my father was a civil engineer. This was in Phoenix Arizona. And I grew up there. My mother and father, they tried to make a marriage work for one or two years, but they got divorced because it did not work. They just weren't compatible, and it wasn't meant to be. Such is life. I grew up a little different than most folks. I grew up with a single parent father. And I lived with his parents temporarily and Gary Indiana. That was for kindergarten. And then my mom, she was exploring herself in the country at that time. And eventually she got remarried. My father got remarried. My mother went to Australia and my father had a blended family in Phoenix, Arizona that I was a part of. So I would live in Phoenix with my blended family, and then on summer vacations and other vacations, I would go and visit Australia to see my mom's family, which was in a way a blended family, but I wasn't living there. I was going to visit and I would see my stepdad and my little brothers who lived there. And in high school, I was, I went from being in the band to now being full time focusing on sports. And my main two sports were football and track. And outside of sports, you could say I ran with the tough crowd. I had some friends that were a little rugged, a little rough around the edges. And they were in the rap music. And I was the producer and I would make beats and we would rap I was in the group. We would all do it together. And I learned a lot. Those are some really close friends of mine and have some great memories of those times. But at that time as well, I was experimenting with drugs and alcohol. What I consider to be vices. And I really did experiment a whole lot throughout high school, which is a little young for experimentation. But that's what I did. This is my story, and these are the facts. My dad, at that time, he got another divorce, and so I started having these vices lead to legal trouble. And I ended up spending a lot of time in money dealing with some of these legal troubles. I went on to college and I was at Scottsdale community college and I suffered a really tough injury. Two, and it was in my shoulder and in my hernia area. And at that time I was at Scottsdale community college, I was injured. I couldn't play football that year. So I started focusing more on the school. And I was doing film school at Scottsdale, so I was able to focus on that. And then I left Scott community college and transferred to U of a. I was still focused in thinking I was going to be a film person solely focusing on that at U of a, but I was encouraged by some friends to walk on to the track team and I actually made the team. I walked on to not only the track team, but the football team, yes, I did make the team in football, but I didn't get in a game, who knows what would have happened. I kind of have some stage fright that I deal with, so I may have not done what I believe that I was capable of. Who knows? We'll never know. But in track, I did have some great accomplishments. In fact, I finished with a school record and I also finished with a all American status by the time I left. And LA, which is where I moved after college, I had an internship, and I freelanced in the film and TV industry. And I was dabbling in the background acting. But what I really wanted to do was direct a feature film. But I wasn't making any headway in this department. So I was feeling a little frustrated. And I was also dealing with the recovery of a paternity scare. And I phrased it like this. You could call it whatever you want. Basically, somebody that I was with, a young lady. I was parenting a kid and then turned out the kid was somebody else's. And I had to deal with that. And all these other traumas throughout my life, I had to learn to deal with that. I had to cope, had to find a way to make it work. And I pivoted to the logistics industry. And let me just tell you right now, I am solely representing my own thoughts when I say this, but I pivoted to the logistics industry, which some consider leaving the dream behind because I was dreaming of entertainment and went in a completely different direction towards logistics. And so these are the struggles. Professional struggles, trying to figure out how am I going to still pursue a dream and entertainment when I've completely left it behind. Being a high functioning attic, being able to pass as doing my job and make my employers believe that I'm totally engaged without any toxins, but I wasn't. Being able to do many functions, but still suffering on the inside with the vices that I was consuming. Also, the self image, myself image, having a struggle trying to figure out why am I disappointed in my look in my image? How can I be happy with how I look when I wasn't at the time? Dealing with internal feelings of abandonment struggles of why did my family do what it did as I was growing up and why did it look how it looked and how about these injuries feeling in my body just pain romantic setbacks and you name it. I was dealing with it depression and anxiety and going to see therapists, but then I realized that I had the ability to put it all behind me and that's exactly what I did. I was able to say times can be tough. Things can happen to you in your life. But if you don't like what's happening, change it. And if you can't change it, change the way you look at it. And that's what I did. I started to look at what was wrong with my life and make efforts and focus on the achievements rather than the difficulties. And each step at a time I took it and I was getting closer and closer to where I wanted to be. I was raising out of the funk that I was in and it made sense to me in such a way that I created.

"And that's where they are your customers, the community around you, depending on you, to be a healthy fit person so that you can be giving to them, and it just drives itself back around. It's the actual explosion cycle and truest form because that's what allows you to go back to work to make more money to serve yourself to grow again and to serve the community all over again. And in fact, some of the business people is your community, so therefore you're serving folks at business as well. It's all there. And here's what it means. True self esteem. This is what it can do for you. It builds true self esteem and true self love to love yourself, you have worth, dignity starts with having being of worth. Let me say that again. Dignity is the essence of being valuable. And even if nobody else in the world says you have value, there's somebody in the world that can. And that is you. And that's where it starts with, this is believing in yourself, having that true self esteem, and true self love, because you're worth it, no matter what you've done, you're worthy of being forgiven and you're worthy of being loved because you can do that on your own. Now, you also can uncover the sources of the negative obstacles to growth. Those are these things such as insecurity, things such as shame, such as guilt such as regret. That you just haven't worked hard enough yet to find as a positive. There is a gift in there somewhere in the faster that you address that and overcome those hurdles to your growth, the faster you are going to be the living the positive life and the life that you want. So it takes forgiveness. Find those things that make you shriek when you think about it..

"The 7 steps to success. This is what I created based on the other pillars to achieve a goal. Because whatever your goal is, you're not there yet and you're striving to be there. And even if you are there somewhat, you're striving to continue to be there. So you find your identity, then you define your current state. You create the goal and you create a system to link yourself to the goal. You work the system, you forgive yourself for setbacks and grow. And remember, positivity always. So let's break it down a slow it down because I don't want you to get the idea that these are just blah blah blah. You find your identity. What is it that you want to be, is it that you want to be the underdog, the person who strives hard and achieves it? Quite possibly. I know for me, that's the case. But what's your current state? Are you somebody who is wanting, but not actually doing? Okay, then let's be realistic because that's the best way you're going to be able to get there. So create the goal. You want to be somebody who has actor as their title or perhaps you want to be an executive or perhaps you want to be a director. So that can be a goal. But you're not just going to become it because you say it, you have to have a system and it could be as simple as letting time pass. But we know as people were not motivated simply only by time all the time. We need things to help motivate us and push us. That's why we have such tricks in our mind to help us decide to do things incentives and punishments such as candy, such as potato chips and things that you like to do, treating yourself. And other things that you don't like to do so that you can punish yourself for not doing the activity. So if you don't like to clean the bathroom, if you don't like to eat asparagus, then those are things that you can force yourself to do as a system if you're not doing the activities that are going to help you reach your goal. And you have to have smart goals because that's the way that it's going to help you actually do them. Put a measurement that you know that you can either achieve or you have not achieved based on a time frame. And then you know that you've done it or you haven't done it. And then work the system. So do those actions. And if you do the actions but still fall short of your goal, being actual is the point because you don't, it's not that you failed that matters, but it's that you know that you failed and you can forgive yourself so that you can do the activities that it takes to succeed the next time around. Because if you have a positive mindset, even your failures are successes because you know what it's going to take to help you grow. And the last one is the first one to me, which is just desserts. Justice. That's what it's all based around. And that's why I started my speech with that. Everything has an opposite and equal reaction. So you have to think about it. That was Einstein who said that. And justice is real, justice is what helps the outcome become what it is based off of the things that led up to it. So those are why the punishments and the incentives help you because when you do something good, you feel good about it. When you help yourself reach your goal, you feel good about it. There's actual sacrifices that you have to make such as working out and that hurts to actually do, but the result is something you love, which is looking and feeling good. So make your sacrifices count towards your goals in that way, the pain is worth it. And the just desserts are worth it. Now, what I want to tell you next is that my belief is that you can be great. With this mindset, you, you, listening, can be great. If your current mindset isn't helping you become great, that's okay. You can adopt mine. I used to be disillusioned, thinking that I was doing just fine. But I wasn't, but then I changed my mindset. And now I'm powered. I empowered by not being shut down by any toxins, not being held back by any toxins or any negativity that can hold me down. I'm able to overcome those thoughts, and I did it by embracing my mindset. It actually living what I was talking about. Now I'm drug and alcohol free coming up on two months and I don't see myself changing anytime soon. You can be great too. If you want to follow my lead, then I would love to have you do that.

"Your happiness. Right now. So the other aspect is, of course, food. And with food, no pictures of my food, and we'll just talk about it. So with my diet, what I had this week was baking an eggs and potatoes for breakfast every day with toast and jam and that was for breakfast for lunch. I switched it up on different days. I had brought worse and fruit on Saturday. And then on every other day I had a salad with slices of ham and turkey. And that was what I had for every lunch day this week, where I had lunch every day this week. I had pizza on Monday and Tuesday, which isn't the healthiest food in the world. But it does have some protein in it, and it does fill your stomach. But on Wednesday I had something healthier, which was chicken and on Thursday and tonight I had steak for dinner. So that was a good night and good week of dinner. And three meals a day, each of those days this week, so I was eating healthy. And the last thing that I want to mention is health. This is the message because everything that we discussed today is about health. When it comes to sleeping when it comes to eating when it comes to exercising, it's all caring for yourself. These are the three things that drive your health and health is all you have. So take very good care of it. You know, I did I it's kind of hard for me to say this because it's just so fresh and so real to me I was in my neighborhood and I didn't see it happen but there was an unsafe act that affected somebody's health and I don't know if they're going to be okay and it was really close within my neighborhood here. And it's just I don't know the cause of it. I don't know what happened, but I do know that you have to take care of your health because it can just like that be gone. So just take care of yourself just be your best advocate to be safe. Don't try anything that's going to put your health in jeopardy because you don't want to have something happen where you can't go back and fix it. So just be careful, live your life, do things that are fun because, you know, you're going to die anyway, but have fun while you're doing it, but don't make it happen before it has to. Just be careful and be safe and enjoy your life and take care of yourself through things that I mentioned, such as health, eating, sleeping, and exercise. This is positively tea with your health Troy Harris. Thank you and have a great.

You're not <Speech_Male> able to vote. <Speech_Male> You're not able <Speech_Male> to provide <Speech_Male> and you got kids <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> they trying to look up <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> make their way through <Speech_Male> society, but you <Speech_Male> can't even put food on <Speech_Male> their table and <Speech_Male> it's leading you to <Speech_Male> have <Silence> no roof over your <Speech_Male> head <Speech_Male> and you <Speech_Male> about to be starving <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> then you <Speech_Male> look to around <Speech_Male> and there's no <Speech_Male> formal way <Speech_Male> for you to at least <Speech_Male> make it <Speech_Male> to tomorrow. <Speech_Male> Well, that is <Speech_Male> a broken system. <Speech_Male> If that's what <Speech_Male> happens to you <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> you living in the <Speech_Male> country that lets you <Speech_Male> just pass away <Speech_Male> because of that. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> you don't want to have that <Speech_Male> situation happen. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> you don't have <Speech_Male> to be mad at the <Speech_Male> government <Speech_Male> because you <Speech_Male> can look at the situation <Speech_Male> in a <Speech_Male> new way. <Speech_Male> The way <Speech_Male> that I deal <Speech_Male> with things <Speech_Male> like this, the way <Speech_Male> that I think about <Speech_Male> situations <Speech_Male> like the <Speech_Male> government, entities <Silence> like the government <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> the government <Speech_Male> is love. <Speech_Male> Because <Speech_Male> the government <Speech_Male> is justice <Speech_Male> and <SpeakerChange> justice <Speech_Male> is love. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> people crave <Speech_Male> order. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> it's <Speech_Male> a reality, <Speech_Male> whether you think about <Speech_Male> it, like you love <Speech_Male> order or not, <Speech_Male> you do, <Speech_Male> 'cause you're a <Speech_Male> person <Speech_Male> and that means that <Speech_Male> you love order <Speech_Male> and government <Speech_Male> is order and <Speech_Male> government <SpeakerChange> is love. <Speech_Male> And if there's <Silence> something that you dislike, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> you can <Speech_Male> change it. <Speech_Male> You don't have to gripe <Speech_Male> and complain. <Speech_Male> You could tell <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> it's the change <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> you need to become <Speech_Male> that <Silence> is going to help you <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> change the <Silence> society. <Speech_Male> All <Speech_Male> we need to do is <Speech_Male> use discourse <Speech_Male> and identify <Speech_Male> the issues <Speech_Male> through the discourse. <Speech_Male> Things that <Speech_Male> are coming up <Speech_Male> and what a great day and <Speech_Male> age we live in where <Speech_Male> the technology <Speech_Male> can tell you what people <Speech_Male> find important. <Speech_Male> You can <Speech_Male> see where <Speech_Male> the issues lie, <Speech_Male> talk about it. <Speech_Male> Make up <Speech_Male> the good points. <Speech_Male> Find where the bad <Speech_Male> points are <Speech_Male> and raise up those good <Speech_Male> points. That's what <Speech_Male> happens in a democracy. <Speech_Male> And then you <Speech_Male> can address those <Speech_Male> points. <Speech_Male> And yeah, you're going to have <Speech_Male> people on either <Speech_Male> side <Speech_Male> with the polarized <Speech_Male> opinions, but <Speech_Male> that's where you got to <Speech_Male> do a better job <Speech_Male> of making your <Speech_Male> point and getting <Speech_Male> people on your side <Speech_Male> because if there is <Speech_Male> enough people on <Speech_Male> your side and <Speech_Male> this society where there's <Speech_Male> a democracy, <Speech_Male> you can <Speech_Male> have that opinion be <Speech_Male> put into law <Speech_Male> because <Speech_Male> those are the way <Speech_Male> that's the way that we can <Speech_Male> make change is to <Speech_Male> change laws. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> if you are able <Speech_Male> to control <Speech_Male> what you can <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> block out what you <Speech_Male> can't control and <Speech_Male> change your opinion <Speech_Male> about what <Speech_Male> you can't control, <Speech_Male> then that's what I <Silence> call cultivating your <Speech_Male> garden.

"Troy Harris mindset, you know that there's going to be setbacks. However, for any setback, you know that you're able to grow from it and you're able to learn what is going to be what is it going to take to achieve this goal is because whatever it did, the last time and it failed, then some other approach has got to be the one that you learn from your mistakes that will work the next time around. So be patient as you learn this as you struggle through the issues that come across that make people react certain ways. And find the right way eventually so learning from yourselves and being honest with yourself is essential so that you can make the desired reality become the actual reality and by seeing where they're both at and by aligning it and by becoming it. And then you also have understanding as you understand it, you don't have to think about it because it becomes you. And as you gain the understanding you apply it to everything that you do and you can share with others so that if they're struggling and they come to you for advice because they see that you have it going on in your life, then you're able to share your understanding, you don't spread hate what you do is you spread love and if you're struggling with something that you still hate, struggle with things that you worry about, you struggle with things that you have grief from, then you don't spread it, you can seek help and you can find people that will help you. But you don't spread the hate, what you do is you learn from those feelings, you grow, and you share with others what it took for you to grow the sacrifices that you were able to go through that help you grow that can help them grow. And then if they grow, then they can pass it forward to another person and you can appreciate and have gratitude and you can have empathy with others because you understand what it was like because you've been there yourself. So having that understanding and everything else that I mentioned is part of the process to helping this world become a better place, which ultimately this world can be a very great place. You can have peace and justice among all people, and we don't have to resort to name calling, in fact, we can all love one another and be totally different people and still have entertainment and still have all the great things that we have always enjoyed. And enjoy the process together. So thank you so much everybody for listening for this podcast. The addition episode 9. My name is Troy Harris, and I'll be back again next week. Thank you so much. Have.

"And growth. So the other thing that's taken place is reaction to provoking. So knowing that it is a word and word is a sign and sign is something fake that points to something real. Having the self esteem to know that you're not whatever that word is trying to provoke you to think that they're saying you are. Is a strength. In fact, that's the ultimate strength. If you can look in the face of somebody who's trying to hurt you, because sticks and stones can break your bones, but words will never hurt you. You know that it can't hurt you? That is so strong. And so as the as that happens as we gain the self esteem, corporately, then we won't succumb to the feelings of violence that come about when we're faced with hatred through the N word. So that also something that can take place and if we're able to get there as individuals, as a whole, and eliminate the group individuality and see ourselves as one brotherhood of man, then that is where society can get to, and the world will be a better place. So through my solution of the Troy Harris mindset, that is where you can get this thinking and it's through the multiple set of ideas that I have grouped into one mindset, which speak to many issues, including this one. And if you embody this mindset and live it out, then it would be beneficial because you wouldn't have the issues, the problems that you could be facing. Because you wouldn't have to be a member of a society where you yourself or your brother can be impacted by things such as the N word. You wouldn't have to possibly say the wrong thing or type the wrong emoji that could cause somebody to react and be hurtful because you realize the bigger picture. And you wouldn't have to suffer a friendship loss, financial loss, and loss of self respect or your own health because you have a big picture of the way that the world works and how you yourself fit within it and how to treat other people. And so you, as a result, can influence your community. That's with the level that you're at now. And as you strive to gain more money and influence, that's it becomes even more important how you influence your community and influence it in a proper way. That eliminates injustice that eliminates hateful speech and slurs, and then helps people see themselves as living in a system without oppression. And you also have, if you say the right things, what you would gain through the mentality, if you say the right things at all times through truly believing it, then you wouldn't have those hot mic moments where you let something slip and your true colors show. And now all of a sudden, you're losing sponsorships because of a joke or an off color remark. And it's funny, ironically enough, it was author of huck Finn, which is full of the N word, Mark Twain, who said if you, if you do the right thing all the time, you never have to remember anything..

"There's no need for that when you see other folks as brothers. Am I saying that they got to be able to use the word too? No, I'm not saying that. Am I saying that you got to keep using the word yourself? You know, if you're a fellow black person, like myself, no, I'm not saying that either. Am I saying you got to stop? No, I'm not saying that either. I'm just saying the approach that you can take the approach that I take is that we don't have to own the word in keep it for ourselves to realize it justify our individuality. We can know that we are an individual and we can know that there is no group wide individuality. We're all different. Yet we were all created equal. So we don't need to own this, but in order to achieve the reality of not needing to own this, we have to see justices take place. We have to be welcome to the table. And it hasn't taken place yet. You have the fact that there's been no apology for slavery. You have the fact that there's been no payout missing the word right now, but for the efforts that were taking place by and put forward by slaves in America. And do we need that? Hey, you know, I believe that justice will always find a way to move forward. So whether or not, you know, it's going to come forward in the form of an apology and pay out or it's going to drive black folks to try even harder to gain the justice that we have earned through hopefully legal activities voting and protesting and changing of the laws..

"One, it shouldn't be the case, if anything is hurtful to this one entity, it should hurt the entire entity as one because it is one. It should hurt some and not others, but it is because we constructed such gravity to this sign, which, for this example, is the N word. And this can be applied to any slur of any group of people because any word is assigned that is something that points to something that is real, but itself is not real. And the injustice that's taking place that's causing us in this example, the N word is causing black folks to hang on tight to the individuality. So we use it and we use it as a sense of pride. And when other people use it, hey, hey, hey, you can't use that word. This is our word. We flipped it and made it our own. So you have that pride taking place and ownership of the word, but yet still, you need nothing to prove your individuality because you are a human being in that by itself proves that you are an individual. So by approaching it by seeing the human race as one race all created equal, you need no individuality within a group. You have your individuality within a person, which is you. So don't hang so tightly to something that individual individualizes your group because you're going to cause divisions within this one beautiful thing which is the human race. And it's been going on from the very beginning, which is when slavery was taking place and there were divisions within slaves, the house, slaves, the field slaves, light skinned, black skin, you divide, they divided the group so that there were feelings of hostility towards one another, which causes, like I said, hostility..

"Know, live TV forgot to press record, so now the podcast just clicked in and letting you guys know that we're talking about the N word. And my name is Troy Harris, the host of the show root of welcoming, and this is the 9th episode. And sometimes we're going to get explicit. So nigger is the word of today's topic. And it has some raw emotions behind it. People react to a strongly, it is a doozy of a word. And let's think about it. It doesn't only come in that one way. We have nigger, nigga, depending on if you're in the in group or outside of the in group, me and myself as a black male, I can tell you that I am in the in group. Have I said it in my past casually? Yeah, absolutely. Have I said it recently in my own, in my own way, not so much. I really don't tend to use the word myself, I got some friends and family members that do, and I don't knock them for it. But it's my own personal preference. And it should be your own personal preference, how you decide whether you decide, and if you decide to use it through the course of this conversation, I'm going to talk about what the future of the word could look like, how we should think about it and what sort of issues does itself cause as a word. And the way we have our mentality as a community. Because I don't think we have it right because as we casually use this word that's so divisive and so emotional, we forget sometimes that we are thinking about these things the wrong way. And what is it? It's a word. What are words? This is the first idea I want to shift your guys minds thinking about it is words are signs. And signs are fake. Signs point to things that are real. So any word in ever created ever said ever uttered is not real..

"Right so this review is five stars. We just started our online training for sleep apnea implementation at our offices. These people are just phenomenal. The content is great simple and easy to follow an implement. I wish i knew about them a few years ago and i would have taken their implant courses. Thank you two. T-bone dr elliot for putting up this wonderful course together what we do. That's so nice. Well it's not too late in the year to get signed up. We have added a few more courses since ours have sold out for the fall. We have a digital implant continuum november the fifteenth to the twentieth we have sleep apnea the eleventh and twelfth one and then we have also backed by popular demand we have sleep to november thirteenth and fourteenth. You know listen. We talk a lot about doing better dentistry and more dentistry in slowing up to speed slowing down to speed up in your practice and next year for two thousand twenty two. We're to introduce our two day three d. case acceptance boot camp. That is the seminar that will truly change your practice and change the way you and your team worked together and the dentistry that you're doing So get in touch with meredith about that. It's i'm i'm absolutely positive that courses going to stay sold out so let's Let's get on the ball with that so with that being said let me bring on our guest for the week dr ryan scale ryan. How're you doing my man. I'm doing great t-bone look at this. We are now. he's got background. That's so it's such a such placement. You're such amal semi millennial thing from the. Oh my god that's awesome. I love. I'm gonna put that back up just so a little bit. That's awesome love it ryan. Why don't you tell our listeners. A little bit about your practice briefly about your practice and about yourself and then we'll kind of get into this conversation cool. So my backstory is as you can see behind me daryl scales my fathers or father son practice and my dad was one of those kind of classic baby boomers solo practitioners who it was a do it yourself. Lean and mean Busy productive practice. But we you know we grinded every day To produce ordinary drove fell dentistry and dead never took real high level continuing ed courses in in challenged himself to to do more and I i wasn't willing to kind of sit back and follow that same path. So i've pushed us along a bit slowly but surely and it was a slow slow growth for a long time and Just in the last two years Man things that really taken off for us in a lot of. It's thanks to the the systems and ideas that i learned through guys. Thank you so much for that compliment. Why don't you. Why don't we begin by. What do you think looking back. Let's say a twenty twenty twenty twenty so doing pandemics and it seems like so much longer than than what you in your word. What do you think was the number one challenge you. Were facing in your practice looking back a year ago before you came. When i was i was new was really good. Clinician i was new. Patients liked us. Enlighten me That we provided great service. But honestly i just had to get out of my own way and the whole i know you mentioned in the opener late to slow down the speed up thing That that to me was the biggest. I was burning out. I was grinding. Two hundred and forty. You know patient facing days a year more Probably two hundred sixty sometimes in a year. And that didn't leave me any time to add only mentally and physically regroup but it didn't leave me any time to really kind of focus on developing.

"You just have to have a very close eye on your marketing. The other thing that I look at in these times is I don't commit to long term marketing because a lot of the companies will tell you need to do twelve months. GotTa give me twelve months. Well when you're in a recession and you don't know how deep or how long it's GonNa take. I'm not a big believer in committing to long term marketing. I'm a bigger believer in having short bursts and seeing if it's working and moving forward so you gotta keep your eye on the ball with marketing but a mistake. I made in two thousand eight. Cut All my marketing off and that is not the solution here. Just got to be smarter with Your Marketing Gay Smarter With You Marketing Very targeted. And I think we just talked to in one of the podcast that we're going to be releasing speaking of which we do have a wonderful podcast alongside them. Listen to call. T-bone speaks that's available on apple and Google and we would love to. Have you do that but when it comes to marketing? Let'S BE TARGETED. Enroll you team and marketing. What does that mean Google reviews? Google is marketing. Google reviews as marketing. Google my business is marketing and creating videos. That answer. Questions that people have. And then transcribing them into a blog post. That is marketing. All of the things. I just read off to your S- Talk to you about a free gay. Marketing does not have to cost a ton of money. And that's what I mean by targeted smart marketing as we come into a recession. Now another thing that's GonNa go counter intuitive a little bit to some of the things I talk about when we get recession is in. That is to tighten up your services. What do I mean by that? Let's say for example. I'm going to use me as an example here. I'm not big or great removable dentistry. I'll argue I lose money every time. I do a removable case. So when you go through recession one thought processes that you provide every service to every patient because all the revenue is better than no revenue. And there's some truth to that but the truth is if you're wasting time and if you're not great at doing something don't do it. We stopped doing movable in our office because we were never profitable doing it. I didn't enjoy doing it. And so why would I do something that we don't make any money on another service that I may get rid of in a recession is we may get rid of whitening practice and the reason beings I think whitening is a commodity? I don't think we've charged enough. I don't think we make enough as a business to actually do whitening that's profitable. Okay I know many of you may disagree with me but these are the things when I say. Tighten up your services. Get rid of the things that are not profitable in your practice in free up time to do those things that are more efficient. And you're more profitable at doing and as much as I say. Don't do fillings. Crowns as you know when times are good and agit transitioning from a dental practice. A dental business from a solo dentist or a solo dentists with owners side with an associate now is not a time to stop doing grounds and fillings Depending on how this stuff comes through and then The counter-intuitive part of that is. I do want you to have an action plan for new services. Listen here's what I know. In the last ten years we've tripled our practice in the last ten years and it's all based on adding new services to our practice so you have to add new services these services against leap Ortho. Implants are going to be super important to you that going to help you have a better practice in the long term So get an action plan and again now is not the time now at all of that. But when you're ready to add services to your practice sleep Ortho and implant Our team at three dentists phenomenal Listen there's nothing for me to sell you right now. It's just not the time but when the time comes I would love nothing more than for you to consider what we're doing here in Raleigh North Carolina without phenomenal team Because listen we're living in and breathing it. I'm a practice owner. I own a practice. I run a practice. I work in practice. I have problems just like all of you guys do and Gals So that's kind of their so Do Do do keep focusing on sleep or phone implants. Even though I'm telling you to cut out services that you know good at or that you don't do enough of Cut those out but I do have a plan for sleep or implants. They do improve practices another area that I didn't talk about is learn how to root canals. Today's technology makes canals significantly easier. You just have to slow down to speed up and get some good training on root canals and then learn how to do extractions and graphs and things like that so That's kind of That so Linde said that sleep apnea will help. That was definitely one thing and then sully mentioned as as important as sleep. Ortho an implant are these are not are helping you. These are somewhat elective procedures. What do you think about refocusing on the bread and butter extractions? Indo as this can create such a solid base. And that's exactly what you just said about making sure you can do everything and not referring now. Extractions think absolutely. I think so much of what we've talked about. For those that have seen my slide. We talked about general dentistry advanced senator and emotional dentistry. I firmly believe that general. Dentistry that base that seventy percent of your practice by volume has to be such a good base and if.
