I haven't seen before in my been rating books and being involved with a lot sorts of stuff. Since i was about fifteen years old when i read zig ziglar top was offered to me by my very first mental.

Chelsea Coaching Carousel Continues
"Lampard site as chelsea the stevie nicks and don hutchinson here to discuss that decision. St let's start simply showy. Was it fair. i don't think he's fear. No the problem is that we're talking about a club that's not normal. We're talking about club that regardless of the name of the manager regardless of the cv yelich or experience or whatever it may be when you lose so many games You don't get a chance to to get back your way. You may have been before you lose games. You lose your job. That's kind of their immortal. And so frank just falls into the into the spot where others before him. Have you lose goodbye. don't they. Size it in the statement. They weren't saying any particular progress under lampard fair. I think that's fair. I do think though he should not have been more time. Try and get his way out about for me to goodful missile and such distances all full still in the last sixteen. The jump zeke's but there's a couple of performances at the end of last season stall will season not worried that three down against west brom come back to three three sat on in game. Gema chelsea will unbelievable for forty five minutes and fought in southampton that drew dot three three will hang towards the end of the game so this being being games where he got himself into goodful. There's one periods on november december. Where the at the most clean sheets in the league and there was sitting On december the fifth on never had them is titled favorites. I didn't get carried away. And nor did frank on each Will not ready for title challenge. Anatomy bottle molested performance. Really worried may done. thousand tuna. Lost lostock could easily have been five six. But i still think you know if you'll wrote abramovich annual no the board of directors at chelsea. You must understand that. Frank lampard chelsea is going to have a difficult time. It's just not gonna come into legend and tried to call plate while cloth Lots in in a pet quality ola and marino. It's going to be difficult for him so when you are in difficult times. I would've thought. I would shut him a little bit loyalty and more only little bit patients and if it didn't work out in a month salmon chelsea was still in his position then tell them to stop in time and just seems a little bit off. What was it. What was the last straw. Well not not the luton game because they wanted strange when you suck someone to win we even. If it's in the autumn of to hold up in the league for example. I think he's an accumulation of things like the boys of said. The results haven't been good enough. He's the manager of the abramovich era with the lowest point tally per game again which is just not good enough. It's not good enough the performances that they've put the way they played no identity and we at the end of january. Now no patterns of plano star. There's nothing you can see really in the game. They played too many defeats sunday in the last six weeks and i think he also pays the difficult relationship behind with marina. Grownups difficult relationship that he had some of the dressing room. Certainly the fight. That tim of hobbies have failed so far to establish themselves in. That team is also on him. He can argue that he wanted can ride. I didn't think the team was balanced. He needed a bit more time. Whatever excuses he can come up with. I think overall is just not good enough and and we've seen in the past sake managers who've won great things like marino konchalovsky and keeping some like sorry like to finish the season and finished with with with a trophy as well for he must have. It was the right time to change and to bring much to what you don. I'm not hearing of drought. Jody morris a texas I wouldn't i wouldn't bombard the Text because a frat will be hutton. And so so. We'll jody morris But front knows. I think he's he said dot stipends not nice disappointed in raleigh saw. I'm not just go back to the bigger picture dot unless i'm naive. When you see other gonna solve show on your say mccullough frontline pod come into the league expected to win the premier league. Expect to get close to wouldn't jump. His legs latte is so difficult and you say we'll all these. I mean. this guy was going to be cycling. They when they failed to qualify for the last sixteen of the jump zig and went out ridiculously early on bodily as well or not. it was under pressure. Walk two months ago. An authentic turn things around episodes slowly. All he's not sitting tilt the league's just think a little bit of patients unfortunately talked about chelsea and night on any monitor patients when they win the league a win the very biggest these japanese. They still pull the trigger. Do you think he's biggest. Mistake has been the when you go and spend so much money on attacking players and you come to the halfway stage of the season. Nobody knows what your front four is going to be. Then i think. I if i'm looking at that from their point of view swirl ho ho long do we give this guy t saw how we're going to go forward because right now you've probably got what seven or eight players vying for four squats and we have had every single combination and we still don't know come come saturday afternoon. Who's going to. Who's going to step forward and plan that front force. Or i would suggest that's been his biggest mistake.
Heat to use coronavirus-detecting dogs when welcoming fans back to arena
"The miami heat will use covid nineteen detection dogs are allowed back to american airlines arena next week. That's the score dot com. The dogs are one of several new health and safety measures introduced by the heat in preparation for their january. Twenty eighth matchup against the clippers. Where they'll begin permitting. A limited number of fans to attend the games. All guests will be screened by the dogs which have been specifically trained to identify active virus. If a dog detects the coronavirus. The fan in anyone in their group won't be allowed inside fans attending heat games. Must also wear face masks and those sitting within thirty feet of the court will be required to undergo an onsite rapid test. But the how okay just go. How do they do the dog. I mean d- after breathe on the dog literally just walked past the dog. I mean they they have to report. You don't have to yeah. I think they'll probably just their dogs. They're better than us. We don't deserve dogs. And i thought they were going to be testing for like fever because i feel like i don't probably smell but they are specifically it says right here. They're specifically trained to detect the virus. Well you know everything that comes off of a human has a smell so it's like a zig has a smell. A cancer has a smell a virus as a smell like everything. You have creates a smell like you know. We all get the breath in the armpits in the asshole part of part of life. But you're just living organism and everything that attached to us going to rate something like there's gonna be a smell and dogs can smell everything that comes off of a human being. Well they can smell everything. What do they say. Ten thousand times more powerful or something. Yeah i am human and it doesn't gross them out. It's just information to a dog.
Social Media Site Gab Is Surging, Even As Critics Blame It For Capitol Violence
"The amount of election-related disinformation online has dropped dramatically at after several media platforms band president trump. Almost two weeks ago. Facebook twitter pinterest instagram spotify twitch suspended trump and several of his allies on january eighth two days after the deadly insurrection at the capitol and since then misinformation on those savings as plummeted by more than seventy percent. This according to the research firm signal labs dr thompson staff writer at the atlantic joins us from washington as he does every monday and derek. This should not be surprising. Studied by cornell in october showed that globally around the world. President trump was the largest driver of false information about the coronavirus. Still your thoughts on this ban. Reducing disinformation by seventy percent. I think it's pretty straightforward Donald trump is the former in chief. He has been missing former chief for all four years of his presidency. He has tens of millions of followers. So anyone else who was similarly dishonest or similarly disinterested in truth Gonna reach nearly as many people because they don't have tens of millions of followers on twitter and so of course banning him from the site is absolutely reduced this information. It's it's made it harder for him to put stuff into the public waterways of of information and it's been hard to re tweet him or to jump on conspiracy theories and then embellish them as as we have seen so often on twitter on facebook across social media so it's not surprising at all and this is i think exactly what a lot of social media critics have then predicting for years. They've said if you directly. Take on the leading mongers of disinformation. You're gonna be able to erase it from the site. Yeah okay but quite couple questions. Zig no found that twitter mentions election fraud. Went from two point. Five million to just over six hundred and eighty thousand it reports that hashtags related to the insurrection at the capitol dropped a core across platforms by about ninety five percent. Twitter by the way also banned seventy thousand accounts affiliated with ridiculous and baseless cunanan on conspiracy theory so first question given how immediate the impact was. It doesn't show that these platforms could have done this sooner. I think this is tough. So social media has in the last decade banning. What i acquainted with the wild west in terms of its regulation they haven't exactly applied laws evenly. They don't necessarily even have laws. The kind of regulation that you need to apply across social media platforms facebook twitter etc doesn't exist at the federal level yet and as a result there was a little bit of a lese sayre anything goes sort of feel like and if you've ever seen a television show removing about the wild west in the middle of late nineteenth century that's essentially what you had Online now we're starting to see the law creep into the proverbial wyoming's of twitter and facebook. They're starting to really take action against people that very clearly violated terms of service. And in this case you know incite violence basement conspiracy theory. So i'm not surprised at this happened I think that the incident of one six the insurrection. The capital siege Essentially served as a litmus test And you saw a lot of social media companies essentially act around that. But i think we need rules going forward because hopefully fingers crossed. You're not gonna have moments like the capital siege or that insurrection every single week but you still need some law going forward determine who stays on the site and who violates the terms of service so much. They have to be platform. Well wait a minute. Isn't this though. Whack-a-mole i mean doesn't this mean that president trump and his allies and white supremacists who follow him and average voters will just gravitate to or create other forms. Really interesting question. So on the one hand i totally agree with you If they're kicked off of facebook kicked off of twitter they're just gonna go to some place like gabar parlor but with parlor for example we saw that parlor itself was somewhat d. platform. Or at least unserved. You had companies that were providing both its servers technology and discover ability. Essentially say you have proven yourself beyond the pale and we don't want to work with you anymore. So we'll see where these people go because they're going to go somewhere right now. I think they're probably going to this other social media site called gab But it raises the prospect that today you know you look at a place like facebook and twitter and it is inclusive of a huge wide variety of ideologies. Far left to far right. But what happens when social media sites essentially. Start to buy kate by ideology. Where say you know. The centre-left is on twitter and conservatives are on You know gab And then the leftist go onto some other platform. It means that are already fractured already. Somewhat shattered sent to the shared reality in america is going to become even more fractured an even more fragmented

Why You Need a Mentor with Kevin Harrington and Mark Timm
"When did you know this was going to be more than just a great mentor ship relationship and become something that would be a book and and start spreading the word about why this is important than and then how to do it. You know i know for me. I was so i would go to these events and kevin being on shark tank when he would finish. Speaking to a room of thousand hundreds of people would line up. They wanted an autograph they wanted and but they actually all would say. I just need five minutes like that was the normal. I think five minutes. If i could ask you one question. I know it would change my life forever and so he was so gracious that he would take a lot of these. You know these five minutes or these one questions and it turned out to be the same question. What's the one thing. I need to do to grow my business. What's the one thing. I can do to start a successful business. What's this one thing and we started having this conversation off line. You know flying back in in a hotel or restaurant and what we figured out. Is that super successful. People have one thing in common. They all had mentors. You talked about your mentor. Being dave ramsey we've talked about zig ziglar. Guess what dave ramsey had mentors zig ziglar had mentors super uber financial successful people. All have this one secret. They have mentors. If you google mentorship there are the haves and the have not and sadly there are more have nots than are haves and so we basically said if there's this one burning question out there around success in growth in relationships business in life it is. The haves have people in their lives. We were not put on this earth to be alone. We were not supposed to do this. Entrepreneurial thing alone we're not supposed to lead entrepreneurial endeavors alone and there are people willing to help and we've got to tell that story and so that's how it became a book and that's why the book is not a how to book. It's not a one two three six steps to whatever. It is a journey of relatable entrepreneur with his mentor. Some unbelievable stories of kevin's live because he's had an unbelievable life and some really practical ways that those those lessons can be applied every single day we end every chapter with how you can take the business lesson and bring it home to your most valuable business which is likely the one you went home to your family. Not the one you went to. and so. that's when just this constant just yearning for this. This answer that entrepreneurs had for kevin and so it became this book bestselling book now on mentorship and we turned him before covid. Never has there been a more important time for people to have mentors than right now It's great timing for that message. Kevin when you're answering those questions in that line and people are saying okay. I just need five minutes. I've just got one question. I've had this experience where people are saying. Okay what's the one book. I need to read. Or what's the one thing i need to do and i try to stop and say i. I understand what you're getting at but you're asking the wrong question because what you guys are talking about with mentor ship is. There's really something about constantly being hungry. Always being a sponge you know and a book that changed. My life is going to be different than a book that changed your life. The one thing you need to do is stay hungry reading all the time. There's no silver bullet book if you will or no silver bullet Course to take you need to be consuming all that stuff over time. that's how we transform and grow as leaders and so when things you guys talked about in the book is the idea of building a dream team not just hiring people that can fog mirror but the people that are really gonna take you where you wanna go. And that's attention especially if you're small and caches tight paying for the talent that you need tomorrow and not just who can do the job today. What's the importance of a dream team. Tell you for me. You know i and i'll kind of begin. This and then kevin can really bring home for us. But the what. I learned from kevin and watching him. Was that up until the point that i met kevin i always hired as he said. I always hired who i could afford like ninety nine point nine percent of every entrepreneur out there. Whoever i could afford. I hired well. That is a way of growing your business through the rear view mirror. Because what you can afford is already where you're at and so i'm having this conversation with him one day and he is he said and i'm challenging him because i'm listening to stories and i'm like well. How did you afford that gyn. Why did you pick that guy. That was so far out. And he's like look. I'd rather have. I'd rather have ten percent of the time of a cfo that can take me to a hundred million then a hundred percent of the time of a cfo that's gonna go to a million and so also the concept is is that who do you need to go forward. What does your business need to accomplish the vision or the purpose. That's the dream team. And what i learned from kevin. Is you gotta get creative. You've gotta get creative sometimes to put the right team together. And he's he's got this great story that he can share around the concept of the dream team with with the laurie. Al folks and i'll let him share that. Because that's when i started to really learn that as an entrepreneur if you can put together the dream team and that's why the business i currently have is doing so well because i'm not in higher can afford a hired who was going to take me where i wanted to go and i had to get creative had involves some equity. I had involve some. You know some creative ways of incentivizing them but i now have the dream team. And that's why. I'm scaling beyond where i've gone before because i was in the way
How Fashion Entrepreneur Camila Coelho Went from Working Retail to Building a Beauty Brand
"You are a self described. Nerd is pretty surprising. Simple when you chose not to go to college. What went into that decision. It's funny they say the word nerd because by teachers special maths teacher high school. He would call me a nerd. I was in love with math. And i actually was an honor roll student in high school throughout the four years and my mom was so sure that i was gonna go to college and be like the best student auto by three siblings. I think she saw me as the highest chance of being like the greatest student but when it came time for me to apply for college i remember thinking about so much. I did not know exactly what i wanted to do. And because i also knew that mima will probably help me go to college as well gave me even more pressure. I did not want to choose the wrong thing. I did not want to pay for college. Study for something in not love what i was doing at the end. I do not know what i wanted. I was sure that i do know. But i didn't wanna make the decision like i was just so scared and i remember i told my mom aside zig mom i knew she was going to be so mad that stated but i said mom. I don't know what i want to do. And i just need some time. I need at least six months to figure things out. i wanna move out of here out of scranton. I don't know what i wanna do. I need to figure it out. Like and she was like camilla. No you need to go to college right away. Grades amazing like you have to go to college. And i i feel like it was also a fear of hers. She didn't want me to end up like her. Depending on someone my mom did not go to college was housewife. I understood her. Fear by in my heart. I knew i needed to wait. I know for like an eighteen year old girl. It was a huge decision by. I followed my heart and i remember telling my mom i promise you that i will make you proud and i looked her in the eye and said that in i still get choose saying this to you because that stayed with me for so long there was a need and desire to make my mom proud after i left home so it was when i left bad. I got a job moved to boston. I had an aunt in boston. I lived with her for a couple months. And i want to get my own apartment. So i just got a job somewhere. Might on how he she in. The job was at a department store working at a makeup counter selling makeup. The counter was pushing to your. And i remember. I hated the retail hours. It was terrible working on weekends in all of that. But one thing i love about that job was the fact that i was working with beauty and i've always loved beauty since i was a little kid but second that i was in a way like transforming or effecting people's like self esteem people from different backgrounds with the for needs in different moods would arrive at the counter every single day after me selling them a product or putting something on them like ninety five percent of these women would leave with a smile on their faces and that would make my day. That was what at the end made me realize how transformative empowering the as in that experience was what made me want to become a makeup artist.
"zig" Discussed on Vegas Nation - Raiders Football
"It's like the rich get Richard they're you know. They really scored I think with that one that was a great pickup for this team I mean behind Clyde Edwards air man that guy is really a special talent you look at what he did at Lsu but now coming into his. Time here in the NFL he's really been spectacular to watch even though he's a rookie, he's got a lot else to to learn and grow off of, but still already national championship to now you may be part of a super bowl team again, who knows Exactly. So I want to thank you for your time here today I really appreciate you helping me break down this game. What are the keys to this game because we haven't even touched on the history so much that I could do here Zegers one of the best guys at breaking things down but I ever met in my time in new. York. And I'm not just saying that because you're on the podcast, it's maybe something I should have said years ago if I haven't ever. So I wanted to get your visions of how things happen Cleveland traitors. Well. This should be. Obviously Close tight ball game. I'm thinking you know this the spread may actually be a feel goal maybe the touchdown at the most either way. Again I don't like the fact that they're traveling east although they did win in Kansas City, I'll give him credit for that but this is a tough game for them the Browns I think this is more of a statement game for them how they come out and establish early I. Think. Now they realized they gotta a legitimate shot at the playoffs can go to six and two with the victory if Baker gets into a role like he did last week against Cincinnati like does against the raiders I it's. Going to be problematic because I think Vegas still has some big issues defensively. Now, car gets into the Kansas City type mode than I think the raiders have a good enough chance for that. But again, this one being in Cleveland the shores of Lake Erie Rock and roll city. I think I'll have a slight lean towards the browns in this game. All right. They have it zig for Kasey again, you can catch them on Sirius, Xm radio, tell everybody showtimes and where they can find you appreciate it tidy. We're on. Saturdays five, eight PM Eastern.

"Skittered all over the GLADE. They're dead wood limbs rasping on every branch and stone. Nancy was afraid but she felt strong in the woods and surprised herself by screaming at the dross in defiance. These horrible little creatures were made of dead plants and dark sorcery and she had spent her whole life learning about. She focused on the nearest dross pointing her hand and bearing down with her mind when she tilted her fingers down Whitish Green routes burst from the bottom of the tangled body and burrowed into the dirt below another started to move forward even as leave sprouted from its shoulders and swallowed it up the other dross paused but more were coming out of the brush along the edge of the glade and then suddenly they stopped. Nessie felt a moment of relief and then a figure rose up out of the dirt. It was the young monk the same one who had battled the massive rhino tour kerosene. He strode forward his muscled arms forming into large pillars of earth and rock. GotTa. Bring you in he said casually. Just come easy now druid magic is strong but I'm it or arms and I'm the best there is. The monk lashed his long earth arms against the ground and Nessie stumbled as an earthquake rocked the area, a narrow crack zig-zagged across the glade reaching out and pulling the land apart the shaking threw her off her feet and adult brain. But he managed to lash out with a handful of brambles or arms blocked them with a pillar of mud, and then he thrust his hands down at the Earth directly beside him with a deep roar like some titanic beast, a wall of earth ripped itself free of the ground it rose and A. Giant. Rippling swell and crashed down towards Nessie like a tidal wave. She knew a half dozen spells that would help but it felt like she was moving through tree sap. The monk was so fast and she was just too slow the wave loomed above her roaring and raining gravel and then crashed down over her nasty thought she'd be crushed but the monk had better control than that. Instead she was gently buried trapped in Earth from the neck down, she tried to cast a spell and the earth only rumbled tighter squeezing out her breath. All right. Then Robert Said are you done? The earth grumbled and roared and started to swallow her up, and then there was a crack and a blast of heat and suddenly nasty was free a strong hand hers and then she was pulled out of the rubble and back to her feet. Heads up mud man said harks turning back to the monk we're just getting started. She shrugged her shoulders and her arms burst into blue flames from the shoulder down searing away her sleeves the air around her rippled with heat and or arms took a step back harks leaned forward and a lance of fire shot from her fists looking at the air like a serpent's tons. The monk was forced to throw up a wall of Earth to block it before dancing gracefully back. harks snarled and another and another. He tried to think of a spell to help her friend, but then another figure burst into the glade, it was that wicked pirate a razor sharp throwing acts already flying from her hand it spun and over end a blur of black and silver. In the Moonlight Nancy watched helplessly as it flew towards Harks who was throwing fire at the monk completely blind to the deadly act swirling towards her back nasty shut her eyes and heard the dull thunk then harks cried out Lachlan. Nessie, he opened her eyes again the squire was there. He had his back to harks the throwing axe buried deep in the wood of his shield or arms cartwheeled over to phyllis the pirate already throwing another acts this time. As she let it fly Nessie managed to grow some roots and trip her up and throw went wild. Nice. One said harks throwing a handful of members into the air over Lachlan Shoulder. Right. But we need to retreat said Lachlan and Nessie agreed they could hold them off if they work together but they lose in the end. And then the dross came swarming back. Hark screamed and waved a loose arc afire some of the draw scorched and shriveled, but more kept coming Lachlan added them away with his shield but then the monk knocked him sprawling with a fist of earth and failures grabbed him by the hair.

"Ninety, three T. as in talent. That's right. We're talking to the talent directly. Of course, anybody can listen even the hiring manager spot. This, this morning some.

Mike Murdock and he said looked do not give a critic anytime zero Nada Zilch. Why because then you don't have time for the people that lift you up the build you up. That you enjoy each other's company lifting each other to higher levels so I, I've eliminated long ago. It doesn't even register anymore it just. Is like water off a duck's back in. Just, doesn't affect me so if you want. To to Change Your career your outlook, your your status in life everything about yourself number one change your attitude. Now I understand that's easier. Said than done. UNDERSTANDS A fulltime job. But the rewards are so amazing. Why would you? Why would you not do it right? So Next question. How do you make that happen? Hey, scam new to this thing you know this This attitude adjustment? How do I make that happen? Well for me the easiest is just change who you hang out with. And I mean that in a big sense not you know physically on a day-to-day basis that counts but. I hang out with this. Guy Les Brown he I believe is the number one motivational speaker in the world at this moment in time and has been. For the last. Been Falling since ninety two I think. So that's what. Eighteen years. So for the last eighteen years less brown I. Think is at the top of the game. Now I've heard them all and I'm Fan I'm a big fan of them all like. Zig Ziglar Charlie Tremendous Jones. Mark Victor Hansen and a bunch of others. But. The just something about less brown his down to Earth. Homespun. Sites. it just resonates with me. So I spend time with him I have a couple particular. podcast of episodes. Audio sessions of him that I I listened to repeatedly one is called. It's not over until I win. He gave this at the Georgia Dome in ninety two. May Be in I think it was ninety two. And that's when he first popped on my radar screen. Then I got chance in person a couple times and. and. So hang out with people that have a positive attitude. In. That might mean spend time with a podcast or video. So number one, you got to change your attitude number two. How do you do it? You hang out with positive people even if it's via podcasts fact I'll include Lincoln. The show notes the one of my favorites right now in fact. It's a podcast called tremendous leadership by Dr Tracy Jones who is the daughter of Charlie Tremendous Jones in a recent she happened just happened to have Mark Victor Hansen on the program saw all included Lincoln the show knows this is going to blow your mind it did mine and I followed him both for years.

"And I read that my first thought would be zig sane. His faith in God and Tom let you. Respond because but I thought that was. Know a good number of people I have and I do. I believe they really have a strong devoted deep true. Faith in God. WHO also struggle with having? A great areas of success in their lives and so to come back and. Ponder that to what would he say? From a personal nature, would he attribute his success to Tom? Well I'm just GONNA quote him. He says number one reason for his success was. A character and integrity. And his number, two reason for success was persistent consistency. Which is the ziglar definition of work ethic so? Consistency means that if you have a worthwhile goal or objective, do it every day, or as often as necessary. persistency means that when you do it, you take it up a notch, right? You elevate you. Go a little bit extra. You get outside of the comfort zone right you you expand on it. You Force yourself to grow. And I would say the root of all that came from his his his faith in God, so yeah, his faith in God was extremely extremely strong. But. I think it's interesting to. Even Dad said Hey, it was. It was my character and integrity and my by work ethic. Hey, I'm I'm successful. The way everybody because I worked really hard at it and I did it with integrity. Well to look at that, though if you take in, why do you do that? Why have integrity why work hard? Why Persevere? I look bad. There's so many things in my life that I do not understand we these conversations, a lot of families you talking about sitting around the table talking in depth. I literally saw it'll be admission as a father. My sharing but my mission say guys I. Don't understand life outside of my faith I. Don't understand the reason to be faithful to work hard to have integrity outside of my faith. If I didn't have it, I would be about me to serve me. Take what I want. Take what I can get. It would be the reason, but I appreciate that so that's how he walked out his faith and I would say the same thing that's what gives me the reason, the desire to have integrity to do the right thing when nobody's looking to work hard. Is Because of. Of My faith Mansa, great question, it really is Here you go, you'll like this. One Tom Rene, says she would ask. What's your advice on building a successful respectful and romantic relationship? It may seem I, but he was such a people person, and so genuine I would love to know what he had to say about personal relationships. He had a lot to say, didn't he? And he and the head, and the discussions around that, but he he's got plenty of. There's plenty of audio content on marriage on Romance. Even on sex from Zig Ziglar I haven't played it on the show Tom, but you know it's out there. It's maybe it's. It's been hidden for too long. Yeah bring it out. To two programs on family, raising positive kids in a negative world and courtship after marriage and I'll just I'll just. Tell the story. You know back in the day when dad would speak on stage. and. This is before technology was really big. They had this thing called an elmo. In an ELMO was one of those projectors where you'd have a piece of paper on the. Right, and the the the mirror would look at it and we'd project it up on the big screen. And he would talk about. Faith and family and he would say that those who went to church synagogue or Mosque, Reported that they had a better sex life. So think about that I mean it's just he he every time he would say he would start laughing to himself because you know here is Zig, ziglar, on stage with ten thousand people in the room and he's talking about sex, and he's talking about the benefit of of having a strong faith because it enhances everything in your life that you do. Dad. Get those get those books or get those audiotapes. Positive kids and Courtship after marriage. And that went so I'll go back I. Do not remember when we first met the first time that I came down Ziglar Headquarters and spoke for success two point Oh and I got to spend a day with you and with. With Zig a longtime ago. Obviously, it was a couple of years. What what did he die? Two, thousand twelve might have been two thousand and ten and I came down, so that was after after his fall and back when he would you would repeat himself a lot. And I was so blessed throughout the day as he would take a question, take a topic, and he would enter into it intelligently and then veer at the way that he wanted to go, and the amount of times during that day that he said talking about divorce that what would happen to a divorce rate of people with simply court. Court each other after marriage like they did before marriage, he repeated over, and over it impacted me Tom to that that's that's one of the threads that he would constantly fall back on and I thought about I talked about it with my wife. What are the things that we did before? We married that we don't do now? And I will testify on that. That romance as Rene said is a significant part of my now twenty seven year marriage, and and you know again to own everybody, but on that one. Was Part of courting. And we it's one of the pillars of our mayors. I'm so great. I'm so grateful for his talk on that, so yeah, again go does dot com and hit the what the the online! What is it online shop products? Yeah, just online are ziglar. Online store online. And Kevin. There was a quote that he would talk about. It was kind of it was the same idea, but it was unrelated in the quote was. Are you happy because you sing? Or do you sing because you're happy? Answer's Yes. Right if if if we start seeing we'll, we'll get happier. And, if we're happy, we're more likely to sing, and so she you know do. Do you have romance because you're in love? Yeah I mean..

"But looks like this, and it's a it's a workbook i. mean and it gives you the instructions in the very beginning. Of how to set and reach your goals? It gives you everything you need. The reality is is that we have to ask a lot of questions of ourselves. Who is it that we WANNA become? What do we want to do? What are the things in life? We want to achieve what drives us. What are we skilled in? What gives us energy, and so the performance planner actually has about the first fifteen twenty pages, asking all those questions of you, and then once you identify okay, that's a goal I want. I want to lose that weight I. Want to get that Lake House. I want to start that business whatever it is. Then it takes you through the filtering questions to make sure it really is your goal. We do that there. There's also the series. The audio program called how to stay motivated. And one of the album's in that series is all about goal setting. And so just a just a ton of resources there and here's something on. That's kind of One of the you know kind of the better things that's happening right now in the world is, is people are? They're having time to think. I mean Kevin. I don't know how many conversations you've had I've had a ton of them. One on one or on Zoom, call or on a phone call where where people. Have just had time to slow down and say wait a second. There's more to life than the rat race. What's you know? What is it that I'm best out? Why am I here? How can I make the biggest contribution? What's GonNa? What's what's going to keep me going? And so? That's kind of cool. In the goal setting process we kinda give questions on how to work through that. the book choose to win. Also. That came out last year. Go through that kind of you know it starts with why. Because if your goal is not supported by Your Y. The chances are you could get derailed with it. You know from it pretty quickly. Yeah, well, and this this show seven ninety starts off with data short clip talk again about most people want to be happy. Healthy, reasonably prosperous secure have friends peace of mind, good family relationships, and hope I, mean those are all areas of goal, but then you go into, choose the win. Win And our habits show. That's where we go through. Those seven spoke on Ziglar, we of life, physical physical family and friends, relationships, mental financial spiritual career personal of those areas and the go through just doing audit, and if you're overwhelmed by goals, just look, what do you want? Do you want anything? I think the bigger problem that we see more and more in our. Is People are not clear on what they even want. All right big topic there st this. You'll appreciate this Steve Rosen Steve. He said what he would ask. Zig Ziglar. Is Work Necessary for lifelong fulfillment? Can I be truly happy, retired or serving others part of what I'm here to do and this find the and this finding, thus finding deeper living and meaning in life. Is there really true freedom to just enjoy being able to goof off and pretty much do what I want or is work? Slash service much. Much more important like vitamins at nourish my soul. That's a question. That's a big question. Now I like it well, and so for context there. Steve was career military I. Think Twenty Years Retired. He's got into fitness and wellness because he needed to increase his own personal wellness and began began doing a fitness boot camps, leading groups of people and he did that and I think he. You know maybe wore himself out a little bit on that and then just kind of fully retired for a while, and so now he's been having fun just just doing that. Just doing it every wants to, but I've seen him coming back in and Kinda. Vacillating. Be between that, and you know the retired thing and wanting to impart back to that wanting to impart something. To people I think it's a great question and it obviously. GETS INTO THE ASPECT OF RETIREMENT. I'll say this Tom I. don't generally see the most. Fulfilled -Vivor people as those who quit work and now just went to goof off for a while. They often will find themselves coming back, wanting to be of use somewhere whether they need the money or not. That's just again. My there's always exceptions, but by foreign large. That's my experience and I know. Zig said he would never retire. I is what my dad says. I can't imagine I just. Got Too many things I want to impart to things I WANNA do. And I I can't imagine being. goofing off all day, but that's. A valid question. You know I think I read or Dad used to say all the time, and he he he, he might not say it on the big stage. He would say it at Sunday, school, or you would say it in conversations or when people ask him a question. They would ask. Are you going to retire? And he would say no. I'm not gonNA retire. Retirement is never mentioned in the Bible Yeah Right, and so I heard that for years, and then I heard my mentor and Friend Rabbi. Daniel Lapin talking about that and he said. In that in Hebrew in the Hebrew language. There's no word for retirement and there's no word for vacation. which both a real interesting, so when he said well here's. Why here's The spiritual foundation of? Why is they both canete that the world is now there to serve you? Right interesting. Now Sabbatical in getting refueled and everything else. That's everywhere. Take the Sabbath. Aw! I mean that's that's what it's about and so I think it's a spiritual concept and so. Do you have to have a nine to five paying job to serve I don't think so. Not at all, and so my question is is that you know we're all here I believe. That, we're all here for purpose created for a purpose, and there are some people out there waiting for us to come to them and serve them in some way to lift them up to lift their burden. And how you define that, don't think it has to be in the context of well know I work for Xyz Corp.. It doesn't have to be that way. and most people who take time off and enjoy life. They get antsy. And it's because there's gotta be a spiritual purpose out of it. There's also the realization that hey, sometimes we got to go out and and prepare for that next stage. Develop ourselves and do that. That's fine, too, but the the connotation isn't okay. World Serve Me. The connotation is hey. I'm working on myself and those is love so that. The quote, you know, expect the best prepare for the worst maximize what comes so that when my opportunity to help, somebody else comes along I'm ready. And I think that's if our if that's our attitude, I think we're going to be in a good position. You are listening to the ziglar show in our part two episode on. What would you ask Zig Ziglar next we discuss. Where do people most find? Purpose will jump right back in after I. Share some great products and services with you. You mentioned the word purpose and in my life. It's been very similar to yours Tom. Most of it's been spent and personal development and self help in personal growth. I when I see people who are again back to harbor you defined success, but if we say people who have great purpose and great personal fulfillment I find that it generally comes at the end of our at the hand of. Serving other people being worthwhile, I think at the end of the day. We all want to be I. I want to matter I want to have served people well and to find purpose outside of that. I don't I don't see it that much i. don't see that often so to Steve's question again be you don't have to judge what does that. Mean is a certain number. Can you just matter to one person? Does it need to be a thousand people? That's GonNa, come to you. In a unique way, but yeah, we want to have something to impart to others. There's there's two sides stories on this. That I think could give some relevant. PARTRIDGES, our business partner, and we do a lot of. Work with small business owners we help these small business owners to system is their business. and. We tell them real simply. Hey, look, you know. Why don't you make Your Business Turnkey? So that you don't have to work. In the business, right, it's it's running smooth. It's got.

"Hello everyone I'm Kevin Miller and welcome to the ziglar show in this episode. What would you ask zig part to continuing from episode seven ninety and the Question I asked Ziglar listeners. If you could have a one hour consultation with Zig, ziglar, what area of life or business would you get his advice on to just get through the very relevant responses at took Tom's nearly two hours of just discussing through them. What came out was very much a best of Zig Ziglar and the ziglar. Ziglar legacy do length cut into two shows and in this episode we've gotten more regarding zig ziglar issues around faith and sales and relationships and working with family, and regrets and self image more. You're going to get much of the ethos that made Zig Ziglar near household name, and touched over two hundred and fifty million lives in growing with his message of hope, and of course inspiring your true performance, so we'll get started right after I. Share some great products and services with you. Ten asks. He's I would like to get to know zig as a person. And how to develop a successful sales team? This show is the ziglar show Zig. That was where he made his first. Claim, to fame was in sales, and I have been looking just at the show content lately I. Don't spend as much time on sales is I think that we could help so many people out there, because as we often do say as we repeat zig everybody is in sales. I like the were use the word influence. Everybody wants to influence. If you're a parent, you want to influence your kids in a positive way that sales. Sales it's no different the dynamic of the same so sales, and that is talk about a source for people that ziglar has now of course. Zach has secrets closing sale, one of the best selling, not bestselling sales book of all time, and that's the one where Seth Godin is famous for San I listen to this tape of that seventy two times or something until it broke, and I had to go buy a whole nother set. Of Tapes, but that book again you go to ziglar dot com and go by secrets of closing the sale. That is a book for light. It's not just for sales, but it's for having influence. If you want to influence, go read that now. There are also other you guys have events and things happening in every week every month. I don't know how often that are specifically on business and also on sale. If you want to speak to that while I go a gossip water, so I can continue talking go. Yeah Kevin we have all kinds of stuff at Ziglar We do the best way to to to find us. If you haven't found yet is just to go to ziglar dot Com and get on our newsletter list. It's free. We'll send you some gifts, and we do things, and we support trainers and coaches and speakers. We do corporate training. We do sales training. We do all different things and so by going to ziglar. You will find that. They're ready for you. You know what I think of of sales. There's a there's A. One of my hobbies was to a couple years ago. I really studied more than a hobby more of a study. You know what words really mean in Hebrew in that kind of. Quest I found out that there was a word for sale in Hebrew. And what it really means. Is that you the words? It's a very high moral word in it says when you sell something what you're really doing is you're looking into the future of that person? And you're you are anticipating a pain or a problem they'll have. And your offering them a solution to that before they have that pain that problem. And think about that that is an extremely. I mean that's like. From a moral perspective, I mean that's like being a doctor or a minister or Iraq. Dispensing wisdom. Hey, you need to take this advice, because if you don't. It's going to hurt you right you're going to. You're going to suffer the consequences, and so that's the way dad looked at it sales. He would whatever business you're in. If you have a product or service that solves the problem, it has more value than cost in it. then. You need to feel great about offering that to other people because what you're doing is you're preventing them from a pain that they could have avoided. And so that's kind of the foundation, we also talk a lot about in in selling. It's selling serving right. It's it's understanding someone's need and the motive is the key. You're doing it for their benefit, not you're. So! That's a that's a little you know we could go on and on, and here's the interesting thing. And, this is more background on on kind of DAD's history. Because a lot of people say Cowley, you know. How did Zig Ziglar get started as a motivational speaker? How did he become? Who is known for well? He started off in sales. Right and he became very successful in selling, and then the leaders in those organizations said Hey, can you train our sales people? And so he would start training the sales people on how to do what he did. and. He learned very quickly. That technique is important. Because everybody everybody's got to have good sales technique, but that wasn't the game changer. The Game Changer was the principles and the values in which you did your business and the character qualities of how you lived your life in. So that's how he transitioned from primarily sales focused to primarily personal development focused, and so if we are the right, it's like this. If I'm hiring somebody for my business. Bring me the right kind of person. Character Wise Integrity Wise Work Ethic wise love for other people wise. Bring me that person who's coach. And I'm happy all day long if they can learn it and their coach people and they got that. That's awesome. Bring me somebody who has got the highest level of skill. But no character, no trust integrity you know. Keep them away because it's going to end badly. Well so two things for their for you..

"In, and we all have to go through pain, and I understand that yeah, I do. You know I think if you would if you were to ask him, Hey, are there any specific? Places where you might have done something differently. I think. Like all of us, he'd be like well. Yeah, as long as it doesn't change the final outcome. Sure sure you've told me that you share business things that he did where he made big decisions like you mentioned that earlier in the show where he would just make an instant decision and Gosh I mean I remember times when I I knew you and you're still working with them your gals yeah, we we got. We got a little debacle here on something that didn't go as planned. I don't know that you would go back and do that, but you learn from it. I get that it's a you know. I think God often works in the tension. It's not a perfect, black and white, and that's. This is really a good topic for right now. With the situation, we're in with the pandemic and. You know there's a thing called PTSD post traumatic stress. There's also something we've talked about more recently, which is P G which is post traumatic growth. And what that really means? Is that trauma whether it's emotional physical you're you're injured physically or emotionally, watch it or fear anxiety. Worry all the different things that can kind of pile on. It depends on your mindset in your belief about how it's happening. And you can. Literally two different people can go through the same experience and one of them can use it as a springboard to elevate them to the next level in life, and the other one it it. It literally debilitates and keeps them from progressing. And the interesting thing is not right or wrong. It's just that we all have an unbelievable amount of. Power in control in our own mind, if we know, we choose to use it to sculpt, eat that event into something that ends up being positive and beneficial. Not that the event is positive in an in beneficial, because it's not all right. How it shapes us, and what we learn out of it can be. Positive and so I think it's dad in his life began to understand that I can't control anything else other than what I do. What I think is is that became kind of the way? He lived life even when he was in the midst of the store. He was constantly riche, reshaping it in his mind. What am I learning? What am I learning? How can I use it and the people who have the biggest impact on other people today? They usually have been wounded. In the way that they go and help others who are going through that situation. Right. I mean it's just the way humans are. It's it's the way we were created and so. It's you know he is he, is he? Would change stuff you know probably. He'd like to make some different decisions if it didn't change the outcome. But I have to tell you you know it's like every day for him was like man. Today is awesome. Can you imagine how much better tomorrow is going to be because? Look at what I've learned today. And it almost didn't matter how good or how bad the day was Now when it came to my sister. Losing Suzy I. Think you get a totally different answer. Right, but you should go. Well, you know. We had a show a couple of days ago that we live streamed on facebook as we're doing this with guy. Kawasaki episode won't come out for a while, but he wrote the Book Wise Guy. And he's he's he's written fifteen books, or so. That's his most recent one, but in that he basically is just go on telling stories. But the lessons that he learned from that and we talked about that David. meltzer is a guy that I interviewed on the show probably a year ago, or so, and he talked about lessons as well, but I love the way that he put it that there's sometimes things that we keep repeating over and over 'cause we haven't learned the lesson. It really brought me more. Giving more focus on the things that have happened in my life, especially some of the negative things, and what is the lesson that I learned because I need to learn one, because if I don't, it's not going to redeem itself. So what is that lesson and going back to your having the deepest grace right now, Tom? I'm trying to be more cognizant of that and the next day I. do something that I think that's not wasn't the best decision. Not Grateful I did that, but what can I learn from it so I can redeem that. I love the word redemption and there I do think is the opportunity to into some today. It's not how specific. Regrets even though there may be some things I wouldn't do the same way. As, long as it didn't change the outcome of what I appreciate today. Friends I trust. You got as much out of the shows I did. It's just so insightful where people would really like help in their lives from a source that they trust what you heard. Today was again half of what Tom and I covered part two coming up in episode seven ninety two's. You can look forward to that. Coming up in our next episode number seven ninety-one Self Care is community care. Listen to this quote. Self cares community care. If you don't care for yourself, you take it out on other people. People, that's the phrase that jumped out at me as I. Ask Adrian Banker About Her healthy habits. She responded with a statement after I asked her about her habits, and the personal spoke I feel it is just a significant paradigm shift on Self Care, and I find it just to be so true when I have poured myself out and not filled back up. Others suffer, and even if I, don't take it out on them in a negative way, but I, just have less to offer them. They're not getting my best. At the idea of a listener I'm expanding on the habits show to ask them deeper questions as well such as in this show, we start off with Adrian talking about the key habits and routines. She just values most for herself. If you didn't catch it. Adrian. Banker is a national correspondent for ABC News and my guest episode seven, Eighty Nine, where we discussed the very acute success strategy of kindness, the topic.

"It's a guest and I heard their story man. It was powerful and you do that. Plenty of times, so zig it. Tell a story about somebody wasn't dare specific story that they lived out, but they heard it managed it it related to that point, so man good. We could do a whole show on story. I know just to give you a little bit of feedback on your story. This is what happens. A lot is is somebody will say they'll tell their story of. They'll say yeah. A few years ago I ran into this guy that I work with and this and this happened. This happened, and it's a thirty seconds story. And at the end of your like. That happened. That's amazing. Well. What we coach people on! This is one of the things that we. We Do Ziglar in our speakers institute. is in. This is what I would tell you 'cause in your story. Kevin, I remember it, you said Hey I was cycling, and the big dogs were there right? The the world class recognized leaders were there. And they broke away from the pack and you decided to try to keep up. So If I was coaching you on telling that story I would say Kevin. You need to tell me those names in. Why were they the big dog? Then you could say Oh, you know. Were they were this team and this team finished second in the Tour de France year before, and they were training to get prepared for this next race. You see all of that context. For me that allows me to see how your jump in cycling went from above average to top tier her. Because an above average mindset sees a champion and above average golfer scratch amateur plays golf with Tiger Woods and they they get smoked. Right. Until they out, wait a second I just gotTa play my game. I just gotTA. Go all in. I gotta practice as much as he does. And then we'll see what happens, yeah. Right, and that's what your. Really, said so for those of you who are using story to influence and don't tell me about a guy at work, told you. Tell me about you know Jose, who's been at your offers for three years, and always bringing these bits, and he comes to you and says Blah Blah Blah. Why is that because in my mind? I've now got a picture of Jose. In because I have a picture of Jose I am more likely to remember that story. When a situation similar that arises in my own life, and if I could remember the story, I might just use whatever wisdom you gave me to help me get through it. Well again I'd say become a student of folks especially if you're like me and it is not your nature, so that is one resource I. Know is Donald Miller. Story brand and he that in that book, but there's other people who are teaching this man, such a powerful powerful value for our lives for our businesses. Brian here. He says I would talk with Zig about Christ. He had such a deep passion for Christ and the thing that stands out. To me is how he. Shared that passion for Christ so. Respectfully so tactfully and again. We're in a time where it is. It's almost impossible. Talk about anything of value and remain quote politically correct. You'RE GONNA. Offend somebody, and I don't want to offend somebody if I offend them. I now don't have influence on them. I don't WanNa. Do that now I'm not GonNa just be silent so I don't offend anybody because then I'm not saying anything, so I think one of the realities. Realities of you are going to talk. You probably are going to offend some people because we have a growing number of people who are looking to be offended, and if they're looking to be offended, they will find offense somewhere somehow, even if it is turning something completely upside down, but zig did he with so much love and grace kind of like back to you, the highest the highest standards and the deepest grace. He shared the reality of Christ and his life. He didn't push it on people, and because of that he had followers peers as I saw it. As you know better than anyone, tom of all different. Faiths and beliefs who so? Respected and often times were attracted. To. Zigzag Faith and There's a there's a what book yet. Speaking of resources would really get into that the most Tom. Do you know Manoj Autobiography? It's one of my favorites zigzag. Autobiography talks about it right pretty much all of them will. He wrote a book early on called confessions. Of a grieving or happy Christian. which is a a really really good book, and he also he did. So many things in his in his presentations and his audio's, but here's the thing, is he would? He would say things like the family and backstage he would say you know. I just share God's truth in love. I want people to want what I have. And so because of that he never approached her, never said anything to down mouth, or say anything negative about anybody else's faith or what their beliefs are where they come in, because everybody's different in their journey, and because of that he had friends of every faith ground background all over the world who loved and admired and respell or say anything. You want to be more like him even though they had different experiences. And also, because of that he was, he was able to go and speak this anywhere he went. Yeah and Folks apologize the. You're here in the background noise right there. I was trying to reply. There's people on facebook who are listen to this live who are replying and responding about Zig, sharing Christ and how it impacted. Those and I can't I I. Don't know how to reply to. If I hit to try to reply. It starts the audio feed, so I can't do that. Well. I'll try to hit some of those after we're done here. You Know Thomas here says. How to handle and deal with regret. And Tom I. Regret is an interesting issue for me because we have a lot of people who are killing themselves with constant guilt and regret that is minimizing them. We don't want that then we send tend to have the other side of people where there are no regrets, no regrets. I personally. Live in a inbetween there. Somewhere because I looked back, and there are things that I have done. and. There are things I will do I'm sure that I regret. They were not bad decisions. They were me going awry. They hurt people and they hurt me and I would not go back and do that again even though. Most of the time I find hopefully all the time, but most of the time by look back especially, if the biggest ones that I have, there's incredible redemption and it's it's made me who I am today. It's helped me have what wisdom I have. Today is oftentimes from those things it did not go well, and so I'm grateful for those they've been redeemed, but to not have any regret, and maybe with semantics on playing with a word. You know why shouldn't have guilt? Maybe but however you want to phrase it. There are things in my past that I am not necessarily. I'm not happy that I did I would not repeat them, and I say that I would not repeat a even though there's great redemption and I know that that's a controversial issue there but I think people oftentimes deal with the polarization of that of being killed by their regrets and burdened under guilt, remorse, and so many bad things, and yet over here on the no regrets I see people who are not really. They're not paying attention to some of the things that they've done. Did they did hurt them? That did hurt other people. There's one so I. Don't know if you've got insight onto how your dad dealt with that necessarily or just your own perspective, Tom. At the end of his life, Dad would say you know. I have no regrets I wouldn't change anything. And that's because he would look he would. He had two things okay. He had grace. He had forgiveness. and which he fully embraced. and. He wouldn't wanNA. Take the chance of anything turning out differently than it did..

"You know guy from the south southern drawl. That's probably what he did. I'm assuming that He. Crafted and practiced those stories Ad Nauseam. He. Nobody. Even really knows how much he practiced everything. He, he had this. Constant idea of. I can tell it a little bit better. I can make it more suspect. I can create more power in it. And then he would, he would hone that story and hone that story and hone that story, but ultimately every story he ever did. Was designed to get someone to take action for their benefit. So think about that, you know it's awesome to be a great storyteller, and there's a lot of great storytellers, but is good as they are. They're not telling the story to to inspire. Motivate someone to take action for their own benefit like like that so I'll just give you an example. When he got started off in cookware business I was working for a company called Salad Master and they do the big heavy duty stainless steel cookware. In people we've talked to people Europe I bought it fifty years ago, I think I bought it from your dad and we still use it every day. Okay, so salad master got their name from this machine. It was called the salad master in head. This crank on it. Okay, and the cranky. Put this this Disk on it, and you could put the lettuce the head of lettuce on it and crank it, and it would shave it. You could do Zucchini or carrots or whatever right? He'd make the salad. And so he would do these dinner. Parties in one of the questions that people would ask is is that. Is that thing sharp enough to cut you? Right and it's kind of like an objection like. Is that really safe? And so. He would say oh. Let me give you the perfect instructions. He'd say so when you're cranking at what you do, is you put your finger in here and the blood comes out down here. Of course. Everybody at the table would just start cracking up right. because. And that was what ten second story. You know because he was putting them in the situation. That's what stories do, is they? They wrap you in to the situation. You feel like you're part of the scene. And so when I was studying the influence of Zig Ziglar? I asked myself this question. How come people will see speaker a and they'll take all these notes. And then and they all say. How was it and they'll say you was fantastic. The Best Speaker I've ever heard and then six months later. They never took action on it. And then they would here's ziglar. And, they would take notes and six months later. Their life has totally changed because they took action on it. And I started studying why? Is that well I'll tell you why it's because he told stories. About all the problems and challenges that he had. And how he overcame them. And what what happens then as you become real, you become transparent and the people in the audience or like this is what they literally think in their own mind. Wow. If he can. Maybe, I can. That's called identity, and so a great storyteller will put themselves in the middle of a number of stories. That make you identify with them. And if they have a transformational change, their life turns around. Then that inspires you and gives you hope to go and try what they did. And there's there's validation and research that backs us up and so yeah, you've got to be a great storyteller. You've got to weave yourself into your own stories. And there's gotta be a motive or a reason behind it. They get someone to take action for their own benefit. And then you got to practice it like crazy. And I WANNA hit on that to Tom Because I i. think even myself I viewed that as people who tell stories well. They just tell stories well, so put them in any environment any conversation. They're going to tell stories well, and that that is not everybody, and it shouldn't be everybody that's not everybody's skill set, and I have that's not mine. And I have skill sets elsewhere. I'm good at communicating. I'm good at making a point. I don't tend to do that well, but in a in a place where you're going to present to some to people where you do want to hook their interest, then what you just said I mean it's just it is what it is and stories resonate the good speakers that I know including Zig Ziglar including you. You nailed some stories. And you tell them over and over and over. I mean how many times the Zig tell the story of priming the pump I mean. He knew that when he could say that in his sleep and I got to see that as he was older and having some memory loss, but man you get him on the right track, and he'll tell that story in nail it like he did thousands of times on the stage, and so i. want people to hear that that if you're in. In a place where you are going to be speaking, you're going to be presenting in your hearing. The power of story in have a a two stories have three or four something that relates to your topic does just what you said Tom and no those things right him. Repeat them practice onto where you just know that you may not be naturally in the entirety of your life, a great storyteller, but you have a couple of stories you can tell greatly. That is something that even I can do. And so I'm working on that myself. And I would tell people who are listening and watching this on facebook. Maybe the greatest. Tool asset. Connector you have. Is Your own story. And when you're willing to share. Transparently some of the difficulties you've had. Some of doubts that you've had and then share how you got some outside information, maybe a family member of mentor of book whatever the case is. Helped you out. Got You thinking differently? And you tried something different, and then you got a different result. That's how you can really influence and impact others to do something different and change their lives. So your story is golly. It's it's you know a lot of times people go. Oh, yeah, well. My story doesn't matter I'm telling you your story matters and there are people in the world who are going to resonate more with your story than anybody else's. Okay, I I want to add even even more to that. You know doing that because I would tend to do that Tom. I just don't think of my own stories. We did a show together man in the past month, maybe a month ago or something like that and I told a story a cycling story and you said Kevin. I've known you all these years. I didn't know that story In everything I'm realizing everything that I. Know Everything. That I know that I want to impart. It came from a story I live in a story and I had to have people kind of. Tell me that you live in a story that experience what you know that thing that you want to offer. It came from story. What was the story? How'd you figure that out? Oh, well I was working here I did. Did this or what? It's a story. I mean that's all we're talking about. So it is the nature of it. It's helping me right now in writing a book, and I've got folks helping me with that and they're. They're prone. If I don't put the story into to pull something out and okay so I get the point. Where did that come from oh? Okay well and generally is a story that I. Lived, out or I you know I experienced it, or it may even be a story. That's highly relevant that somebody that I had on the show..

"And he would have this little card and the card was a mental checklist of how he was going to thank. His way through each shot, and do all these things, and he would get out there, and he just had some bad shots, and he would just look at me and go. I. Don't get it. How did that happen? I did everything right And then when we would get done it was you know every you know we would have good days and you know we'd have great days and good days. You know there's never horrible days right because we're all gosport together. But we talk about it and he just if there was a self doubt of anything I think it was. Around his expectations. He had such high expectations for himself. And for other people as well. And by the way, that's a good thing when you have high expectations for other people. Especially, if you're in a leadership role a lot of times, they'll step into it. Now. There's a difference between having high expectations. And dangerous unfounded expectations right because we. We never put somebody to position where they can. You know they can torpedo the business or creative crater, the team or whatever right? We've got to provide the support and make sure that they're there them to help them grow into that level. and so if anything you know, he was always going to be on a scale of one to ten. He wanted to be eleven. And he's and so we don't always hit ten even. And so temporarily he'd be like. What can I do next time so I don't know if it was a self doubt issue. As much as it was, you know getting realistic about expectations and by the way. I don't think dads would would say that. He was a fan of realistic expectations. Because that never changed the world. That and that is one that maybe that rubbed off on me. I can't get excited by realistic expectations ones that I know I can hit now. It's also can be frustrating if you're constantly doing the shoot for the stars thing and you never get this, which goes back to your ridiculously unrealistic but man. I mean we want to stretch ourselves. That's where the that's where the stories the good stories come from. You are listening to this show and the responses to the question. What would you ask Zig Ziglar next? A lady says she'd ask. Housing stayed on target with his agenda. His God given talents and passions, instead.
"zig" Discussed on The Ziglar Show
"I mean any parent I can't I can't even relate because I. Have Not lost a child and the what apparent goes three when they do that. So the storms had him just like everybody else. But, his peace of mind was unshakable because of his belief in his ability to focus in on not on the problem. Not on you know all the things that are going wrong, but on what he could do. Yeah, and ultimately when there was nothing he could do about it. He was able to to transfer that. Give that. To to guide basically and so. And that's a journey I wish there was an easy answer to peace of mind, but we all struggle with that. We all have to go on that journey. But that was the example that I saw all dad's. Yeah well. Obviously, he was profound in that. That's what made in the man. He is, and the legacy that work continuing on here. Clinton row actually is one of the people. And he asked about, or he said that's what I would ask. Zig is is about faith and grief. On grief and you mentioned the death of your sister. That's when he wrote the book. A confessions of a grieving Christian. Which folks you can go and I'm GONNA I'm GonNa pull out as we go along here. You know as people are asking the here's what ask. Here's an area I would ask. If there's a resource that we have the ziglar has that can fulfill that? We'll let you know I'm I'm happy to share those. Those resources and promote those as well so confessions of Agree Chris. You can go to ziglar dot. com hit the products page and find that book there where he goes through talking about the reality of this guy and I. You know one of the things with zig that he was so as competent as he was. He was also such a humble real person. He talks about his struggles along the way, so there's a powerful one for anyone dealing with grief. Steve here, he says. I would ask zig. What did you leave unfinished? That you would like us to continue working on in your absence and I thought about that and I can envision. Zig Hovering over the over his funeral, probably guy who is grateful for what he had accomplished, not a lot of regrets, necessarily and feeling pretty fulfilled with what he had done, but I also like that I. Don't know that I can't see him. Also as a guy who ever got to a point of going I'm done, he was never done. He always had more so I like the question Tom. What did he leave unfinished? What did he want to do more of that? He would want us to continue working on in his absence. What's the first thing that comes to mind? The first thing that comes to mind is I watched Dad Age so when I became aware. And Dad was in his fifties. Okay, because he was thirty six when I was born so I'm kind of a late. In the spectrum I my closest sister. Julie's almost ten years older than me. But as he progressed from his fifties to sixties to seventies, every year. It seemed like a sense of urgency went up. And the reason was real simple. He knew he had less time. Right. He had these these these things he wanted to accomplish, but he knew is like all of us. Every day that we're here's one less day of our total right. We don't know when the end is, but we know that he knew yet less time. And I think what he would say would be. What he would say, is this that he was able to accomplish everything that God intended for him to accomplish. Because, he was so diligent on staying focused on what that main thing is, but. His sense of urgency was hey, look. There's one more person that needs to be reached. What else can I do? That's what drove him to Kennedy. Continuously create to speak to write to to pour into people and that's why when you when you spend time with dad whether it was at a lunch, or you know saying in a parking lot to somebody who recognized him. He was like all in one hundred percents focused on that. And for those of you, who met Dad, and maybe got an autograph or spoke to him. You'll know what I'm talking about. He had this ability. Just like time would stop and he would pour into you. And so, what is it? What would what would I say that? He thinks his unfinished. Is he would say look. Whether it's me or somebody else. The direction the path the things to do all that's laid out for you. When are you going to pick it up and do the same thing? When are you? GonNa take the ownership and the responsibility to use the gifts that God's giving you. To go out and make a difference to be that difference maker in somebody's life whether it's a child whether it's you know your spouse somebody at school somebody you work with. And so the unfinished part is really out. What are you? What are you doing? What are you doing next? Dad. You know. He loved it when people would say hey, you helped me achieve this. But man has joy would go through the roof when somebody would say hey. I shared what you said with somebody else in it, and it really had an impact on them. That is legacy. That's that's transference. Right that is carrying the torch and so he would ask this question. Are there more people who need to be reached? And if the answer is yes, and we'll get busy. And I appreciate you saying that you started off talking about his sense of urgency. And I mean again. He was a guy who was at peace who took time to smell the roses, but he had something he felt called to impart. I want to be that and I think man that is not. It's not the norm of what I see in our culture, especially amongst the aging population, they're more prone to slow down. Fade into the background. You know I did my hard work now. I'm just GONNA. Hang out boy. Don't find fulfillment in that. It may feel comfortable but I. Don't find fulfillment I want to have something to impart. Till the end, and I know you guys kept him or Facilities facilitated him remain onstage writing doing the things that he did to prolong his life to prolong his impact and his yeah. Imparting man I wanted. It's such a great. That's such a great role model for us the first to follow. Gregory here. This is good time. He says I would simply thank zig for the influence he had on me. He introduced me to the world of personal development as a young kid over forty years ago, he handed me a signed copy of see you at the top, and around to it I still have both our school did the see you at the top play for him I was in the cast. I had no idea at the time. What that would mean to me as the years passed? I still have the songs in my head. And I responded to Greg Race. It's so great to read this, but what would you literally ask him? And he says I believe I would ask about his own self doubt along the journey. How did he push through his upper limit? Challenges in faces of vulnerability and I appreciate that because you know as we've already mentioned me, Zig Zig was he wasn't supernatural. Necessarily mean he was A. he was a guy so self-doubt i. mean you were as intimately connected with him I mean you? You were his son, and then you worked with him. you saw most of it and I'm sure you saw moments of that of self doubt or You tell us. Yeah. I wish I could articulate a specific instance where I saw a lot of self doubt. And I just I didn't see it I. Think he was already to stage. In his life in his in his own kind of. Belief and progression where I didn't see that, but I will tell you that. He loves to play Golf, and if there's a sport in the world that creates self-doubt. That's the sport okay in. He would he would show up to the golf course and he would have all of these expectations..

"Means they won't have hope well now. The question is simply this if you want those things, did you specifically identify all of them? As goes and write them down very imported question second question. Did you list the benefits of all of those now? That's a very important point. What Tom this question so insightful simply ask if you could have a one hour consultation with Zig Ziglar what area of life or business would you get his advice on and? It was powerful. Some of the some of it. You'll hear some threads here of what people share but hit some good aspects I think most people were late. I'll just jump in Jeff here. He says I would ask him how to be a better leader in my family and in my home. There's tons of information out there today on leadership in the work environment. I think too. Many men shy away from being leaders in their family. This is something I'm working on in my own life. I love to hear Zigzag thoughts on the subject spiritual financial physical relationships. Relationships etc in my home I strive to show my son how to be a good man I strive to show my daughter how she deserves to be treated and loved. We could all use improvement in this area. There is no end game and there were some other people out of that, said absolutely I'd love to hear more on that as well and Tom. That is my experience of Zig was one of the few people who commanded a stage talking about whether it was sales or business, success and personal development, but he so deftly Ma-. Ma- married that with just. Good character being of course, a good person and As, we've always said nobody's the fill his shoes. We do our best to continue that legacy here. You know one of the things that the dad talked about all the time. Is I have to lead yourself? And then you lead your family, and by the way he wasn't talking about a certain age or gender or anything like that he was, he was basically passing on ownership of the responsibility of leadership. To every person who actually heard his voice or read his words, and so we start with a leading ourselves leading our family, and then we lead in the community. We lead at work. We lead wherever we go. And there was a time and I think it was in the eighties. And the the question was you know there's a lot of public debate about principles and values? Are these family values, and are these leadership values, or are these business values. And what Dad said is there is no such thing. There's values and they apply to all of it, so we can't have. A certain way of leading at work from from a value from a character perspective. Yeah, that's different than the way we lead at home or the way we lead ourselves. It's gotta be the same. I think that right. There is profound help. Everybody hears that that we start off how to be A. Better leader in my family and my home is how we lead ourselves. I, actually know Jeff's a frequent responder to our questions here he's. A Guy, who is least striving to lead himself well. Evan here. He says men regardless what he'd like to know is regardless of the circumstances how to live in peace and grow as a person in the area of faith, family, finances, friendship, fitness, and fun, and for the podcast I started off with just a short clip from Ziegler talks about a most everybody wants to be happy to be healthy, reasonably prosperous secure have friends have peace of mind, good family, relationships and hope, but that style. What is it? The one two three, four, five six one piece of Mine Evan says how to have peace and grow. About a piece, regardless of the circumstances that one has been just high on my mind, lately Tom just looking at that and say what does give us peace of mind because there no matter what. What do I want most of all? In a given moment, I wanted just have joy regardless of the circumstances I WANNA have peace regardless of the circumstances and I I see that come I use the word more and more just fulfillment. We want to be fulfilled in these areas to feel like we are creating value to feel like we're making progress. in in whatever it is, and fulfillment is just a good word, but I look at that and go. Gosh, there's an area I. Don't have peace in. Why am I am I fulfilled, probably not. Why not? Wha, what am I missing? So. How come you throw me the hard questions? 'CAUSE, you're the man. You Actually Carry Ziglar name I'm I'm I'm I'm not quite there. Well I'll just give you a little bit of background on kind of DAD's journey You know he grew up in. City Mississippi. it was the heart of the Great Depression and he you know even writes about in his book. See at the top and speeches. He was the little guy from the little town with little dreams. I mean that's who he was. And his mom his dad died when his five, so he was raised by single bomb. He was the tenth to twelve. Kids didn't do well in school so so I want you to get his mindset. Okay, his his. In so everything about him was okay. How am I going to survive this right? Because it was about survival and people back then, they were just working so hard, just tried to get to the next day. That's really what they thought about. He gets out of the navy gets a little bit of school he he starts a job selling door to door. And a mentor there somebody looked up to pull him aside a meeting, and said Zig, and all my years. I've never seen such a waste. But, if you believed in yourself and went to work on a regular schedule, you could be a champion. And so dad took those words, and it was a mind and what I want, everybody here the journey so. The mindset shift went from. You know I'll not performing because I'm a little guy from a little town. Who's going to buy for me to wait a second somebody? Admire and respect says I could be a champion. If. I just believed in myself, and so that when he got laser focused on. What does it mean to believe in yourself? You know that's when he started reading like Vincent Peel and in those kind of things, and so he had a a rapid rise in his trajectory from the world standpoint, he started having a great deal of success, but the problem was. Is, the success would comment would go because he would make these. You know kind of knee. Jerk decisions to go chase the greener grass. And then in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy two. That's when his faith came into play. That's when he became a born again Christian and the reason why he did everything suddenly changed, took on a big purpose of big why? And so I think. In that journey. He went from a little guy from a little town. You couldn't do much to somebody who could do a lot, but what's the purpose? To now, he's got a North Star. He's got a reasons got a purpose. And so where does the peace of mind come in? The more he would focus in on okay. Why am I here? And what's my value and value? Dad never felt like his value is was and what he did. Right. He didn't get his value from his work. He certainly didn't get value from the material things that he had. But he got his value from a belief. In, God? That! He was created for purpose, and his purpose was to help. Other people be doing have more than they thought possible. And so whenever the the storm, when come and by the way it came I. You know when my sister when when my sister susie passed away, that was twenty five years ago..
Sung Kang reveals the fight to make 'Better Luck Tomorrow'
"Sung king you know him as the street racers. Hans Solo. I love that Han Solo in the fast and furious movies. And you can argue that. Seng's portrayal of Han the impossibly cool mentor of Tokyo drift. A member of the core fast and furious family made the franchise the most surprising and successful blockbuster series in Hollywood history. I would definitely make the argument so we are very lucky to have the chance to speak with Song. Today on Asian enough. Thank you for being here with us forever me we want to start off by addressing the big news. Which is you are coming back to the fast and furious franchise for the upcoming fast and furious. Nine which is huge for those of us who obsessively watched these movies because we know than Han. Your character has been gone for a couple of movies and in fact has one of the most tremendous most unpredictable. Arc's I feel like in movie history in that you know Tokyo drift. Which was the third movie in. The fast and furious franchise is the one that you originated this character. And we'd love to hear from you. What has your relationship with Han. Been like over these years. It's a love hate relationship. The hate is a strong word for it. I think it's maybe love and difficult is what it is because I'll never dismiss what the fast and furious and with the Han characters done for my career and my family and opened the Hollywood doors the first time I you know Justin and I worked on festive fears like we would just literally walk around the production office and then go into his office and start like laughing. Because can all these chairs the free snapple into the free water right those little things that we really appreciate it. Because when we're shooting tomorrow we had nothing we had a fold out table with five sticks of. Wrigley's spearmint gum spread out and a box of cold intimate donuts breakfast. That was our craft service and better luck tomorrow. Of course was the two thousand two indie film about over achieving Asian American teens who flipped the Model Minority Myth on its head when they start doing crimes so better luck. Tomorrow was Justin. Lin's first solo feature recode to feature call shopping things with Quinton leave and there were still students at Ucla. And then I heard that this young filmmaker out of UCLA was making an Asian American film. But I had already worked on a couple of Asian of American films that never finished and it was kind of a fiasco and felt like yeah. It's great to be part of this movement but we're not going to be able to compete with because you can't even finish the movie and when I came back to La. I was so disenchanted anytime I heard about another Asian American filmmaker instantly said this is probably not a good idea. That was already probably a few like maybe five six years in right. I mean I've been already a journeyman into business. You know and the auditions that I would get are the roles that would be a waiter or Yakuza and I felt like maybe the timing was rights. And this idea of being an actor in Hollywood is not GonNa Happen. Right and then I got a couple of phone calls from some aspiring producer. Asian American producers. And they said Hey. There's this guy named Justin Lin. He's a ucla and he's doing this. Asian American film. You should take a look at the script and you should like audition for it now and then two more friends call and say hey. You should really take a look at the script so Justin I actually met at. Danny's on Wilshire and western Koreatown. We met to talk about the script right and talk about the role and stuff like that and at that time. I think Hon- was written as a Filipino character. That drove a hundred civic here like a shaved head. Wow he was really perpetuating kind of like this. You know southern Kelly J. JD M. car culture kind of thug. And I'm from Georgia so I don't identify with I'm into muscle and you know my role models were like James Dean. Paul Newman John Wayne. If you will right and so this thing did not resonate so when I sat down with just and I said Hey I can I addition for Ben. The main character for best. I better tomorrow and just in being the the the patient older brother if you will and he would make a great poker player because slow played it and he's like why not. Let's see so. I went at like three times to read for Ban and knowing the whole time. I'm way too old looking. I don't fit the VIBE and I said to myself if this dude cast me it's movies gonNA suck and compromise vision. So after the third edition called me and said. Hey Man it's not gonNa work out but I would still love free to play on. I was like this is a guy that I would go to paddle with one last shot. Because if it doesn't work out I probably have to go and find a real job and it was so challenging because we had the whole budget in place but then the investors had asked Justin to change all the rules to Caucasian and Justin being. Who is now not GONNA do it? And he started putting the equipment on his credit card but as soon as the credit card companies. No you're maxing it out. They basically linked to the other companies. And then they'll hold your credit card so we're screwed and then I had worked at this restaurant in Beverley hills this cream barbecue place called Hula okay. That is no longer and we shot for a day and then justice said the money's not coming in so we probably have to shut this down and I went to work and I was so depressed right and I'm a server. They're left of a smile. I was so bummed and this is where I feel like everything happens for a reason. Like I don't necessarily subscribe to all these myths and stuff as some Guardian Angel but if if there is such thing that night she showed up and by that you mean John Wong and her husband. Jeffrey go founders of the Cherry Sky Films Production Company. They had been coming into the restaurant for a couple years and there was the first time they saw me not smiling and that kind of goofing off and she said what's wrong way so sadness explain the situation and she said can. I take a look at the script as I have in my car. She goes Why don't you in the director come by the office? Like the talk we went in there spoke for about an hour and then she wrote us a fifty thousand dollar check. Wow there's something like so mythic about this whole story but isn't that the keep a fifty thousand not enough to finish this movie right and so then we're stock and just kind of freaking out and the only person he knows that really has money. Is this guy named Mc Hammer right and how does he know MC Hammer so justin used to work at the Japanese? American museum is to be editor for the downtown Japanese-american Museum and so he was in plans of shooting tomorrow. And at that time the cannon xl one three chip consumer camera was coming out. And if you guys are aware if your techies like big deal so that was the first option of going digital post to film and suggests that went down. I think there was a convention down there to look at the new cameras coming out and Hera was there so hammer's standing next to a kid. You know anything about this camera. And he kind of helps them out and he goes. So what do you WanNa do this well? One day I hope to be a director. They Kinda you know. Talk a little bit and hammered being who is gave him his phone number and said hey you ever need anything. Give call so fast forward. The money's not happening just freaking out the credit cards frozen. I think he had the the phone number like pin to his wall. For you know for Sake right is that what the hell he calls. Hammer Hammer picks up. What's up is okay. Do you remember me Zig. Know what do you want? Here's the situation he goes. Hey it's not hammer time anymore. I can't just be funding these things. But here's ten grand. Do what you gotta do but you know I don't I don't need it back but here it is so if you go and watch. Tokyo drift anytime. There's a Tokyo City. Scene is hammer
Tesla cancels plans to bring workers back to US car plant this week
"Cancelling plans to bring workers back to its production facility in California this week. Shares of the company had searched today on a report that employees were heading back on Wednesday. And that would be before. Say at home. Orders in the San Francisco Bay area were officially lifted. Tesla's stock is up more than eighty five percent eighty five percent since the recent market. Low about five weeks ago. So what's your take on this move? You know what a surprise. Tesla says something and then kind of changes their story You know the Tesla. Eight hundred dollars Also that anybody that wants to But I do think you have a case here where the Shanghai stories what's been supporting it. the earnings in the free cash flow over the last couple of quarters. has been critical to bringing Some sense that the company can do this profitably. I don't think this is an environment That's better for Tesla. And that's not just the macro on where energy prices are and not just where credit markets I believe truly are but it's a case where I think that that car which was the model three which is the mass market car. I'm not sure that the demand is where it is in this environment but look Eight hundred dollars is a level that I didn't think the stock could ever get to so. That's that's very clear guy. I posed this question to you. And that is do you think that demand pre pandemic will be the same as demand post pandemic or even during pandemic. I think going forward. The demand will continue increase in the short term. No I mean with energy prices cratering. Dan Uses the word. He's right crashing. That's should actually give some sort of tell when to some of these manufacturers like GM and Ford and actually should work to somewhat of the detriment to Tesla. But one thing I've learned you know this is a stock for the last seemingly five hundred dollars Zig when I should've zagged and they just can't get on the right side of it. It's clear that you know I. I'm missing something in terms of the stock and it's doing what it wants to do. I'm sort of in Tim's camp here but with that said you know I watch these moves on it. Just find myself shaking my head in an environment where of all stocks tessler should not be doing as well as it is
"You see this video? So this video of zero zero landing holy Moly so it says a twitter video on twitter out the front window of presumably an airliner or some sort doesn't make three twenty. Thank you because I didn't read it. I just looked at the pretty pictures and I was actually somewhat riveted by these pictures. Because it's like a fifty five second video. The I forty five seconds of which just shows you clouds Alexandra visibility out the front window of the airliner and then like last ten or fifteen seconds. You suddenly see the runway and I mean they're they're basically on basically in the flare when you can. I see the runway out the out the front window and and to their credit they're totally on the centerline. Good job I guess but It's all automation I. It's it's all something because they I'm watching this thing. If I'm I'm the pilot in this airplane and I suppose if I was the pilot airplane I'd have a lot more experience than I do now but if I was in the pilot of the airplane the experience I have now. I'd be staring out the window looking for trees. Holy Crap this going to peer. I don't know what's going on here. runway okay. They really do this. Apparently you guys know. I mean I can't tell from here. What kind of a cert? Yeah that is it. It could well be kept three. I don't know okay. I've heard that term before. I don't exactly know what cat three zero zero cats to is. I think fifty feet hundred feet something like that cat. Three cat three or whatever it's called is zero zero Now is I understand it. all Airbuses at all Boeing's manufactured recently and I'm putting recently and finger quotes have the capability to do that presuming. Everything is is present and working There's I'm sure there's a minimum equipment list for for these operations but you also have to be trained crew has to be trained and has to be current in the operation reform. All this I hope yeah I hope so. There's probably some other restrictions about which I know nothing now I mean. Does this happen very often happens more often than you think. Well okay so let me let me be. I would notice this if I was on one of the airliners. I was traveling on. And as people know I've fair. More than average travel on a lot of airliners and when we're doing our our arrival through the clouds I'm looking out the window looking for the ground. All right I mean. Forget straight ahead. I'm just looking straight down. Which is a different kind of visibility? I admit but I'm looking to when we break out of the clouds and I'm not a real comfortable camper so to speak comfortable airline passenger Until I can see the ground out my out my window and I would it so the point of this story being I would have noticed if we landed on that kind of a circumstance because it would have freaked me out. I I'm trying to think and I am not as many as you jack but I you know I've been on a few airliners in the last couple of years I don't recall are certainly recall. Some some approaches in some classes. But I don't recall anything like this. Yeah that's I mean just to give give listeners. A context here when they can actually see the runway surface. Even even after they've touchdown and you can kind of sense from from the I actually didn't listen to the audio very carefully if there even is audio but you can kinda sense from the motion of the video. When the gear touches down you can kind of say okay touchdown so the rolling out there rolling out and they still can only see like a stripe and a half ahead on the runway and those strikes are standardized distances right. Yeah Okay so you can see a stripe and then half the gap between stripe but even if you can see the neck to head to the extreme. That's four hundred feet visibility. I mean it's like yeah I mean Holy. Moly the other thing too is. You're only looking at the windshield very very narrow view We don't know what they could see by looking out to decide okay true. It's possible down. Not that that matters because in my airplane for example it's one and I have to see something of the runway environment before I could land out of that approach With these kinds of of approaches the three as whatever You don't need to see that you only need The working equipment and the certifications cat cat to is again either fifty or one hundred feet and you still need. I think to see something other runway environment before you can land Yeah David what's your take on this whole thing? Well I been in a jump seat when we did a cat to level landing Years Ago I think it was a hundred feet was what we had. And it's for me. It was a new thing and it made me tense The flight crew and they were everyday business with them You know just another aisle less except they could go down to one hundred feet two hundred feet of which point they head to see the runway environment or go around and I've heard stories of people in Lighting G. A. Aircraft Part. Twenty-three stuff that we fly out on ninety one flight. That is not for hire who have a landed in well whether it was zero. Zero or fifty. Eight of a mile was the subject of very boisterous argument with the people on the ground. But I watched this guy come in when everybody else had gone missed and gone to a different airport i. I'm not sure that I'm not sure that you're GONNA get my Kahane's down that level may maybe with a little more experience with the L. P. V. Approaches because I've noticed in having both an an IRA less active at the same time that the is far more stable and easy to use and the IRS. Which would have a little zig zag and a little up and down depending on the terrain as you're leading into the runway expand that acronym for me l. p. l. what'd you say. L. P. Young. That's sorry trick question. Well lateral lateral precision with vertical guidance and that. Lbj got it okay yeah just OPB. And that's the WAAS. Gps equivalent to an irs and some l. p. v. approaches in fact have the same minimum. I
Getting Rich Might Be Easier Than You Think
"Things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily alien nominees a micro audio book about life and befuddle men just for you our story. This week is from BB. Nicholson who oh you'll find on medium DOT COM and here is getting rich. Might be easier than you think. I'm going to be rich. Don't laugh this is a slam dunk. I don't even need to publish bestseller or start a company. What's more I'll let you in on a secret? You too can avail yourself of this potential windfall. The beginning of my ride to riches occurred in the summer of two thousand thirteen gene on what started out as an ordinary day it ended as an ordinary day to but my assessment of the day as ordinary even even boring goes to show that the least significant activities. The stuff we are tempted to write off as forgettable are the things that catapulted catapult us to unexpected rewards. I remember the day. Well no or maybe not so well but I can reconstruct it. I was in the kitchen feeling those first pangs of hunger that surface when you've already had lunch and it's not time for dinner and you can't focus or do anything much until you've had something to eat. I could have reached for an apple or a banana but my craving was for something salty salty artificially flavored and devoid of all nutritional value. I reached for the giant variety snack. Pack I bought IT COSTCO CUSCO A few weeks earlier. Only to realize with dismay that all the potato chips and Fritos were gone. The only thing left was cheese. He's it's if you haven't figured out where this is going by now. You haven't read today's Wall Street Journal. The story is on page. Eighteen eighteen. Three women are suing. Kellogg's the manufacturer of cheese it because they feel misled and they want justice one the plaintiffs Linda castle purchase cheese. It's approximately three times in two thousand thirteen from Grocer in Torrance California her lawsuit and her pursuit of justice stem from the assumption that her cheeses contain more whole grain than the label would lead one to believe so what you might be thinking who cares if Linda Castle but she sits and believe she was consuming a health food. There's a sucker born every minute. According to P. T. Barnum. But here's the caveat. The cheeses were labeled whole grain and and although the box explains that they contained five to eight grams of whole grain for each twenty nine grams. Serving the plaintiff felt deceived received. Mrs Castle and the other plaintiffs are seeking damages other monetary relief and declaration corey relief. Whatever whatever that means although a federal judge dismissed the case ruling that the whole grains wording was factually correct and the label would neither mislead nor deceive a reasonable consumer the? US Court of appeals has reversed the dismissal. Here's where there I come in and maybe you if you've eaten cheese it anytime in the past eight years the plaintiffs want a class action suit consisting the of anyone in the US or its territories who has bought cheeses eight since two thousand ten. According to The Wall Street Journal there there are thousands possibly millions of people who bought cheese. It's all of whom munched away happily without formal complaint. The more I think about it the better I remember that fateful day when I reach for the cheeses I can still hear the bag. Cellophane Russell smell the cheesy odor. Her Savor the crunchy junk food. Taste my husband probably qualifies for the Class Action Suit to the other day. He fished just a bag of cheez. Its with a two thousand one expiration date from the back of the Pantry. I forget how good these things are. He said digging digging in his fingers dusted with the Telltale Orange Stain. That is the bane of all cheese at eaters.

I also was like it doesn't really matter. My friend is moving like he doesn't care if there's a nail hole right right here like this needs to be. How do you know I just know from opposite airs in the same building like it was like a whole like listen convenient for everyone kind of thing and she overcharged me so much then? I just paid it because I was like. I don't want to deal with someone who's insane your TV actress as well. That's just as I was living in your apartment. I'm GonNa Eccentric millionaire. I we have our guy was when then I got the job on best week ever had to move to New York and we had only been in this apartment for six months. It was like a little house that we're renting. This dude was always around because he we used to live there with his wife who he didn't we didn't find out was his ex wife until much later but he like when we're meeting him to discuss renting the apartment Hartman. He talked about his wife as if they were still together. And then when we found they were divorced it was like that was weird but he He will come round to tend the grounds because there was like. There's a little backyard with a lot of greenery. And he was just there all the time in Janey hated. I wasn't crazy about it either. But Johnny don't like it because he would. It would be scary like she would just be. She'd be alone the House and then all of a sudden like see somebody in the backyard him but but he he at one point. I can't remember what the argument was but he was pleading with us about something else. Please bear but when we have moved in there was some wicker furniture on the little patio that we got rid of. We thought the old tenants had left it behind behind but it was his. He provided that for us we did not realize that his email like say trying to say how much she had done for us. This phrases in my head all the time. Consider the settee. Consider the Seti horse at you sell much. Please consider the city. I tell you about about the dude. Speaking of like dude like hang around and who owned places do to places so club and I rented a place for for July fourth. I think three years ago out by by the ocean and had a bunch of our friends there which one and which one what we asia-pacific yes and I pointed to it and it was like Christian authors as old place like. We didn't know that we had hardy. Guy Yeah we god there and then suddenly Ed hardy the name of it because he was an old tattoo artist. Ed Hardy was an old tattoo. Ed Hardy was and from the fifties. Do the dance so he added they licensed to down tonight. They licensed his tattoos for Ed Hardy Hardy stuff about the company and I only know this because the the merch rep really yes for and how.

Three hours he talked to away and and here you know he just sat. There would have been a visiting and in my mind. He's like crouching next to a talking to us while we're stripped down to my boxer briefs Career and the other part of it. That was really weird was he was like by the way the TV show limitless based on the mood. The Bradley Cooper was out at the time he was like.

Deltas CEO wants to use tech to make airports happier places
"This year. It's the electrics and tech show in Las Vegas held every January. The kickoff keynote presentation was for the first time by an airline airline CEO. Delta's ED bastion. He talked about how tech should help. Take the stress out of flying. And of course make you want to pay more to fly Delta the the airline announced a few new features like updates to its APP to include other parts of the trip such as rideshare or hotel also artificial intelligence to improve scheduling and investment investment in updating airports including something called parallel reality high tech displays and airports that show personalized flight information to lots of different different people. All at the same time. Here's ED bastion from Las Vegas describing it to me. You'd walk up to your gate and you'd see or your boarding. Try to figure out which gate you're going to. When what time is it and it seems like Mumbo jumbo particularly if you don't speak the language of coming from another country and who have you're you're welcome sign two just you personally will see welcome molly? Your Gate is eight twenty six minutes departing and forty eight minutes. And there's a there's a starbucks you know halfway down there if you wanted to stop and get a coffee on the way down. Just think I'll welcoming that is held personalized. How do you personalize the experience? And how people have that connection to the brand and that that emotional experience that we talk about a delta. What are the parts that you can't control? I mean there are a lot of stakeholders a lot of touch points in an airport. You know you can't not really. I wish you could make. TSA EASIER FOR PEOPLE. But what are the parts that you only able to tell you one of the things that spin unique to our turnaround is we stop thinking about the things that we can't control and start focusing on the things we can control and there's many more things within our control than or not as they. Tsa In the Security Queue. You know we are not responsible for but we think like we're responsible for it because we're responsible for our customers and doing more and more than working more with biometrics to kind of facilitate that facial recognition while certainly has privacy. You know questions that people sometimes don't want to which is fine they they don't have to opt for it if they don't want to go. Facial recognition is more efficient way to get people through a boarding and through the entire airport expense without having to fumble for their passport or their boarding pass or trying to find their papers. I mean this is a departure no pun intended but who are you hiring. I would imagine a generation of data scientists and coders not necessarily thinking. Ah Delta is the place I'm GonNa Land Oh we we got a lot of data scientists because they like they like the challenge. This is big league stuff does. This is actually solving dynamic issues. That are happening real time. Twenty four hours a day. In fact ninety two thousand four we call business forty six hours in a day when you think about the full length around the world that we're flying it's high class Stuff we also you know people love to travel and so that's one of the perks snake you know while we're competing with the amazons and the other for talent we're actually winning a lot of people coming go from high tech organizations. 'cause they like they like the work. They liked the challenge the work and they liked the product. I have to be honest coming into this. I thought you were going to announce facial recognition in every airport in Everyday Delta boarding. I know that something that you have talked about and experimented with an airline. Where is that well? It's it's it's coming it's it's it's there therefore in most of our international markets now You know there's I think people are still trying to figure out what their point of view on facial and communities are trying kind of figure that governments are as well For US adult it's important. It's an opt in system. We're not forcing people to go through facial recognition. We think it's it's a great technology to help. Facilitate you know the flow through an airport as well as the effectiveness of the security trying to truly trying to fail weed out the bad guys But the reality is is that I think people are still getting used to the concept. So no we weren't. We weren't planning what we wanted to do was announce things that are coming uncover the next five years as compared to things that we already. We're already doing okay is a little trickier than we all thought it was GONNA be facial recognition facial recognition. No no I wouldn't say that facial recognition on the international side is largely in place. We still have some airports to finish rolling out On the on the TSA on the domestic excite yes that's probably more challenging because large no more higher number of volume of passengers domestically than internationally a travel. Secondly you don't have the infrastructure really in place through through. Tsa to accommodate yet again. You think about those clogged you know Hallway Hallway sometimes through its TSA operates adding another form of access through there with facial is just it's just that much more challenging but as we're building the infrastructure process. We're we're we're leaning towards. I want to ask you about climate change because when people fly a lot. It's good for your business but there is this realization. I think increasingly that it's it's bad for the planet. How do you take climate into account and how might some of this investment technology? Maybe mitigate some of that in pitch we we Those are those are. I think that is the existential question for us for future in terms of our ability to grow zig. If we can't can't grow sustainably our industry is not going to be given the right to grow. I think it's that serious and we are doing a lot in that regard and I'm pretty self critical of Delta as as well as the industry in this respect. I think we've kind of been defensive about it. I think we've talked in passive voice. We've talked about things that we're doing less of as compared to what we're we're doing to actually make the planet better. We're just doing less bad as compared to doing more good and you got to do both and and you gotta by the way also engage your

Let's get into talking about this game <hes> because listen i don't think we were expecting a shootout greg but no one expected game at this level and we could dissect <hes> how poorly the bears played but give it up for the packers defense which balled out right here lots of people had great. Night's goudie was one of brian to the packers. General manager brings in preston smith who gets three q._b. Hits in this <unk> game including the game finish zig area smith. I think hadn't even bigger impact the brings adrian aimo senate who has the key interception <hes> his draft half picks darnold savage and i think the two safeties they have savage in amos are gonna let mike pet and do a lot of crazy stuff back there. He loves having five six defensive backs. They're not going to dominate like this every week but you could just see aaron rodgers after the game. How happy is that. He's going to have a difference making defense and i think they can be a top seven the eight ten defense all season. I don't think there's a fluke. I mean i i think part of it is the offense you play tonight in chicago. That seems like a work in progress and you know a lot of those players did not operate great in the preseason and airy measured compared to what you were saying during well. No i mean i i would say this. I leave your credit because i think mike patton you. You got some with these games back. When he was cleveland coach in the one good season they had and when he was the jets coach when he started his court kind of feel himself in the second quarter with this defense they got aggressive and they took chances and they were able to against the bears offense it in the second half. I'll never forget this drive where it's one points i and forty then it's second and forty than its third and forty and i you know for all the people who want to tug mitch trubisky into this conversation a franchise quarterback. I've not seen someone with that. Label look has lost consistently on third down as he did tonight. There seemed to be no plan for this offense or he could not pull them out of the trouble. They got into and it's going to be a long week for him. I know logically not to overreact two week. One especially after the quarterback didn't play in the preseason but there is a there's a feeling of collaboration just throwing mitch trubisky by the way so this is the big breaking news the midway through the

So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything Kentucky's worker safety agency has a whole lot of problems. That's according to a recent audit by the federal occupational safety and health administration or OSHA from the Kentucky center for investigative reporting. Eleanor clemen off details fatal flaws in Kentucky's worker safety program. On what would have been her forty third wedding anniversary. These hubs stands in the front yard of camp. Pious the farm handed down through her husband's family for generations. She watches as the very same dump truck that killed her husband rolls down her country lane in December twenty sixteen pious. Gene, Hobbs was raking gravel with the meat county public works crew. When dump truck number two to five backed over him, the driver, then accelerated forward hitting him a second time Hobbs was crushed to death. Hey, let's hear that one no backup beeper no backup people more than a year later when Lisa hob sees that same truck number two to five reverse. She here's how nothing has changed on the day of her husband's death, both I witness and a state trooper said the trucks backup beeper was not audible Hobbs might not have heard the truck coming but Kentucky ocupation safety and health said the beeper wasn't a problem that was after testing it on a quiet street hours later, the same inspector failed to interview the sole eyewitness and overlooked possible worker safety violations at the worksite while the shortcomings are very concerning. Jordan Bearup is a workplace safety expert who ran federal OSHA under President Obama identifying the causes of these incidences also vitally important because otherwise the employer doesn't know how to avoid the next incident. Gene, Hobbes's case is not the exception. In fact, it's the norm. That's according to an annual audit that federal OSHA conducts of all twenty eight state run workers. Safety programs. The most recent audit of Kentucky which covered fiscal year. Twenty seventeen was sharply critical depiction understaffed under resourced agency. That's failing to protect Kentucky's workers federal officials, specifically criticized how the state investigates worker deaths in a statement, the federal department of labor said it's working with Kentucky on a corrective action plan Berube said the feds have the authority to take over state run programs that don't meet federal standards having a state program is a privilege, not a right of the states. And certainly it requires states to address rapidly and seriously any problems that are identified by federal OSHA, it Kentucky labor cabinet declined to comment. But speaking to w k MS public radio in April. Then labor secretary Derek Ramsay explained. How the state approaches companies about possible worker safety violations, we're going to educate we're going to educate we're going to educate and we're going to educate. And then satay without a really strong enforcement unit. These voluntary compliance assistant programs are not gonna be able to do the job. Laura stock is the director of the labor occupational health program at the university of California, Berkeley, she said what's happening Kentucky reflects a national trend. Republican governor Matt Bevins' administration has been strongly pro business and anti regulation when gene Hobbs was run over by a dump truck Kentucky issue, no violations or fines to his employer a state worker safety supervisor wrote in an E mail that Hobbes walk behind quote and apparently completely compliant. Dump truck backup alarms working the supervisor added that Hobbes quote jus- zig when he should've zagged we know that the truth, it's not the truth federal OSHA agreed with gene Hobbes's widow.

We're not the only. One. There's a lot out there Kentucky occupational safety and health investigated forty four deaths in a two year period. According to the federal audit, there were serious shortcomings in a vast majority of those investigations for NPR news. I'm Eleanor Clinton off in Louisville.
Podcasting Lessons From FOX News
"Saw a tweet by Donald Trump. So it could be total bullshit is says Fox News top CNN and immense NBC combined in October cable news ratings then he says that's because they treat me fairly. That's definitely bullsh-. Let's soon that what he says about their ratings is true, though, FOX is doing better than MSNBC and CNN combined. That's the case there's a big lesson here for your podcast here is why that would happen one old people and less educated. People are more likely to watch TV old people unless educated people are more likely to be conservative. If a certain group of people's more likely to watch TV and certain group of people is more likely to be conservative a conservative network on TV would you better than a liberal network? Now, this isn't to say that younger more educated people. In other words, liberal people aren't watching new. They are. But they're more likely to get their news from somewhere other than cable television. How many young people do you know that our court cutters? People who don't have cable television at all. Well, those people aren't able to watch Fox News CNN MSNBC, if the old people that are left the old people, they're the ones who are more conservative. Here's another reason why this might be true. There's only one conservative cable, news outlet, FOX, the liberal and centrist audience that's being split between different networks. CNN MSNBC. Maybe aljazeera. There are ton of other less conservative networks that are going to split that audience 'nother thing this is maybe the biggest when it comes to your podcast. This is the big lesson here that I want you to take away FOX is not news. They call it, Fox News. But it is actually an entertainment network. It is personality driven entertainment personality matters. When people listen to your podcast, they are not listening solely for the content. They're listening for you. You can get the basic content anywhere. But where can you get the personality? You were the only one that has the personality that you bring to the table as far as content. You could do the exact same episode is me or anybody else, but you could dominate it based on your personality. If you've got a personality that your audience is interested in that's the big lesson. You can get the basic content anywhere where else can you get the personality nowhere? You're the only one who can bring that such yourself up to be the only choice people have when it comes to your viewpoint and also your brand of content. They zig zag they're conservative. You're more conservative. They're liberal. You're more liberal their religious, your nonreligious their religious. You're more religious bring a point of view bring a personality. You're not going to please everyone. So concentrate on really pleasing, the people that are into you. Then he's bringing up more personality that is the secret sauce. It's not content subcontinent. King. Well, that's a content is Queen personality is king who's going to deliver the content. Podcasters? Don't wanna nameless faceless voice. They want you your personality as wine a lot of the episodes from Bill to be podcast. You're gonna hear me tell him personal stories. I want you to get connected to me. Lot of you've podcast in device. Nobody can deliver in the way that I do same for you a lot of people share in that advice that you've got nobody can deliver it in the way that you
