ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Get. I might welcome the episode number six of the clever dumbs podcast. I am lucky joined by a NYK going tonight my friend. Great, I'm going great, but yeah, that's it's episode six. My we are pumping these are like like it. We're bloody make an iphones overseas, my way of just churned through days like we're like we're made of a brother's back. And also, it's great. Is it's brilliant. It's brilliant and there's been some good response coming through as well. People have been just sort of keep because a nice shout out the saying, you know, it's a good job done, well, job all done, as well, as you know, appreciation for certain items that we talked about as well. Yeah, and that's always good. We know we're doing it for ourselves and we know there's a few people listening, but yeah, people digging it, so that makes us feel good and sort of gives us a bit more for you to keep going and pump it out. So yeah, bloody happy guys. Love it. For the people who have been tuning into our podcasts or listening to and spotify that I can't get that unit out of my head. Have Been Tuning it. Well, for people who have been listening, there's a page up on our website which is homework, so you know if you want to do your homework and that's where we're going to post all the links. That's all up in life, so you can check it out this for you. Items of there. Yeah, we've got a couple of things reference that. They each sort of episode we talked about. Maybe a few things that people might not be familiar with, or couple of books and that we hit a few good ones last week. So he had another looks also made and, as I said before, but now the website looks bloody great. Yeah, very proud of yourself. Might put yourself on the back. Young friend. How's Your Day? What do you get up to? Not Too much, mighty. Had A had a full weekend off, which is good. First Time in a while that I had the weekend off. So we got a house inspection tomorrow, the bloody joys and benefits of renting. So just got the house ready for that. Sort of the cleaning that you put off a little bit. Got Most of that done and then sort of had the had a made over and we watch the UFC today, as you know, I love that Shit so much. So it was really good and just kind of ACGREGOR. He's nothing quite like at the atmosphere and the energy that he brings. Yeah, it was a bloody great day and always a good day when I watch the RC, but even bet when he's on, for sure it's just fucking special. How good was the fight? But yeah, it was unbelievable and the build up to it was interesting because it would be in a while since he competed. It was October twenty and eighteen and before that he hadn't fought ever. Made two years before that, so he's been inactive and didn't really know what he was going to come out with, how he was going to come out, but the man just delivers. He knows how to handle the pressure. He looked a little bit nervous. You look like a you know it would be in a while for him, but he came out and he looks so big and he was fighting it well, to wait, which is a hundred seventy pounds. For us it's about seven seventy seven killers. Yeah, that's right, little bit bigger than what he's used to. So people one ring if his power was going to transfer over how you know, maybe he's conditioning, might drop off hours at all going to work. And you know, none of that shit came into play because he just came out like a bloody dog in a dog on heat for a lack, I don't know if that's a say God, and just passive facings for Ony, couple of shoulder shots and put him on the back foot, smacked him in the face with his foot and sort of it was a sort of key from there. There it was just about the referee jumping in and given Serny a chance to kind of fight back. But now that was absolutely as dominant as you pretty much can be. Yeah, it's pretty special. It is brilliant. Twenty Second, was it twenty second last? Now it's forty seconds or forty eight seconds, or somebody said forty eight seconds. Yeah, didn't feel like very much, that's for sure. It's yeah, it was a good fight. I seen the highlights and and actually see the fight itself. I was chopping, but yeah, I saw the highlights. was a brilliant fight. You know, those shoulders really leading to him. You know, unusual move on his hand. You know, you don't see that very often, but it was brilliant. Yeah, that's never seen it really impact of fight that significantly. It's something that they'll use to maybe just roup timing in the clinch when they start to grapple. And he's a guy that doesn't necessarily want to grapple, but he was venomous with it, like he was like just get the fuck off me. What are you trying to clinch up? And he sort of came out at the start of the fire and then he overshot a left hand. So he sort of set himself up for the clinch and yeah, you we've never seen like shoulder shoulder barge to the face like be so impact full. That's kind of the beautiful thing about em mat it's not boxing, it's not kickboxing. You can use, you know, basically the entire part of your body to win flick damage and yeah, it's pretty, pretty powerful. We short of drop down a bit. Need through it up like an uppercut almost, but with his shoulder and his fucking down right. That's highlight of the how do you bls? How do you how do you block a shoulder hit? You just run away, you just pushed away all sort of yeah, you throw that Overok Ole. So you throw your hand over the top of his to try to change it. Now that was yeah, you've got to get out of there. And by the time Sonny realize it was...

...banging him like, he was like Shit, he's actually trying to hurt with this. By the time he realized that its nose is broken. So yeah, it was very fast. He's a powerful LADD and it's just so happy to have you back. For sure. It's brilliant. It's brilliant. Is a you know, one for the history books for sure, as he says. Yeah, that's right it he's and he's plug for his alcohol company with here. What a problems all. Yeah, he's a very P to. That's what makes it root great. It's so funny because he comes out and, unlike anyone else where you know, people you know taking it seriously and sort of be in a lightheaded and just starting to get out of the zone, he's just SA. You know, this is my opportunity, I'm just gonna plug it. Yeah, how recent gave his mama shout out, all that usual stuff. But yeah, hundred percent, and is usually a lot more aggressive with his callouts and he called everyone a called him bloody falls. Usually he goes a bit harder, but he's he's maturity a little bit. He's he's not as not as reckless as he was before. But yeah, he's I mean he's made a Shitload of money. I think he made about six a million dollars of his first year of of proper tool whiskey. And have you? Have you tried it? For No, he's a good yeah, it's not too bad. It's pretty, pretty smooth, pretty sweet. So it was an easy drinker one it came over here. I think I first tried it in March or something like that. was about sixty five. It's probably like a forty, forty five dollar bottle. It's not not quite worth the sixty or dollars, but yeah, it's well worth a go and you can drink it on the rocks. It's pretty got a little bit of a Scott like a vanilla tings or a noak tinge to it. So yeah, it's actually not too bad. Yeah, if you if you're out and about, give it to go. You I think you're like well, league the ball that you go, corner it. That's your shut out proper towel whiskey. Give it a go. Yeah, that's right. Hopefully that's our first sponsor. I might have without it. You know, if you have caught a McGregor sponsoring you, you know, what else could you want that? I was going for that apple sponsorship. But yeah, I guess that's, you know, topic for another podcast, I suppose, or say. You got to shoot your shot. And it was pretty cool to have his own company sponsoring the cage when he was fighting, you know, very like. You've never seen that before, but he's actually a ring and he's got his company pass that over there. So that's pretty pretty epic. He's a real groundbreaker. So Bloody God off for sure. It's just a verall unusual person. And you know he doesn't really do things very hold things are done condemned p yeah, exactly. That's a big to you know, he says so unique. Yeah, absolutely. Now, which that last part brings us to our today's topics. A why man here is a great seguent. So we we're talking about being different or being intended as to being yourself and how to carry out your life and how to do certain things and how to achieve greatness and how to achieve success and all those things that you know we desire, but you know from very often we get told that there's only one way to do third certain things and you know and we often buy those things. You know, we say yeah, right, well, I guess it's only one way to the do thing. I mean Corna is a great example of as to how different he is from anyone else who fights in the UFC. You're any other athlete, you know it not not any of the things that he does hasn't been done before. You know, a lot of them mean the way you and needs fighting styles. So it's a great example and you can see his success and you know, people end up liking those people a lot who are just different. Yeah, most definitely. I think for it, my weather and boxing Carla had a similar approach where he sort of talk the business, expects the aspect of it on to himself. And traditionally in sport, you know you're under an umbrella for an organization or promotion or sponsorship, so you usually sort of toe the political line, just like in the business world you sort of represent your company. But it's those sort of people and that sort of attitude that you know obviously he's got an affection personality and enjoy hearing him talk he doesn't sound, you know, like he's rubbing sticks together, but he's just so uniquely himself and he has such a positive and he's like he's goals are so big that he's just constantly chasing it and it sounds crazy at first, and a lot of it was crazy, but when he started, when these things started coming true, it's like wow, this guy's not just the talk. He doesn't just talk to talk, backs it up to Oh for sure. That's it and and I think that's what's all about as well, because, you know, if you talk about something, you talked about doing something different, you have to back it up as well. But, you know, no, let's I'm going to start by looking into and, as we always do, exploring this a little bit, you know, doing things different and, you know, not following the crowd because, and we spoke about this, you know some of our previous episodes,...

...is will. We are living in a society where it's very much appropriate to follow the crowd and at times the only thing that people end up doing is following the crowd with its careers, whether it's, you know, social stands or, you know, whether your political stand and all those things. Where you are, you have the opportunity to make a decision. People end up following what everyone else is doing. And you know, that particular mindset flows into many things and you can see it. I mean there's search results for it. And you know I work a little bit in worked in what not a little bit. I worked quite comprehensively in you know. So I suppose entertainment. Right. So in entertainment we have a saying that one of the best the best show is, the best thing that can happen to a show is for it to be sell out, for it to be a seller now, which is interesting because sometimes, you the show doesn't even have to be sold out. You just have to say that you got, you know, that you're not selling any more tickets. You'd be surprised how quickly people want to buy tickets. So you know, there's that ury and I mean I suppose the skate city mindset sort of comes into that place as well, because you know, we often crave things that are in short demand. But you know, apart from that, it is a fact that, you know, people think, people are really really thinking. The way they're thinking works as well. Everyone else is seeing it must be good. So I need to watch it. I need to go see it. There's another example of you know, something that really triggers me personally is is a film reviewers right, and I've seen addicts. You know, critics are they really get my blood boiling. The reason I bring them up pretty relias because I've I've had friends and who who would say would not go watch a movie because some critics said that's not a good movie. Yeah, yeah, it's just that when you know opening, we just watch it Onlin yeah, and let's not watch that movie. But I want to watch the movie. Will know it's should because that person said is shit. You know, not making your own mind up. I mean, you know, the thing about critics is, and this is really interesting because and I had this conversation with someone before who was sort of specialized in human behavior and, you know, we had this chat. I said, why does this happen? So what we sort of came to a conclusion was, if you really think about of what critics are doing right, sort of their job to critique or, you know, to find the negatives in a particular movie or something. Otherwise, if they don't, they just look like chumps. Yeah, you know, you mg imagine creatic going to movie and saying that movie was incredible. Yeah, whatever, job, whatever, no, but have a job so which is really interesting and you know. So that's just shows that sometimes we're just letting other people make our minds up for us and not really exploring our options. Now the big one is the big one comes to as to how we start our lives. So when we can a school that, you know, I a general life would offer person. You know, if you were to look at majority right of people, their lives would go something like this. They born, you know, they grow up, parents love them. Slowly, they end up going to preschool, they teachers love then they break you. They end up going to primary school. Primary School this pretty decent time for them. They're growing up, they're exploring the learning about life, you know. Then they end up going to high school, some of them, some of them end up building some good social skills, some of them not as much, but you know, their parents still love them. They learning a lot in a lot, a lot of things and, you know, exploring the option as to who they are going to become. Now, as soon as the school school life finishes, for some reason the learning stops there as well. Some people end up going to university, and it's often not because that's what they want to do, but it's only because that seems like a reasonable option, because everyone else does it. And if you try to try, if you try to get out of that sort of thing, you know your parents, your friends and you know your teachers. Everyone will tell you, what are you doing? That's what you should be doing, is should go to the university, because go to university is the only thing you should be doing. You know, now, I'm not saying university is bad. You shouldn't go to university, in fact you should, but if that's what you want to do, right. So, you know, often people will finish university city, get a job, get a you know, if people so, they will...

...be two seguides again. Some people will end up going to a trade or, you know, some other scenarios, but there's only few, just a handful, of option that people end up doing because those are the parts that being the more stroubled and this seems safe. Yeah, and any kind of educational system creates that kind of that function that you just spoke about of doing what other people are doing. Like your your design, you're the way you learn is structure in a way that it's kind of preparing you for the job force. In a way that's good, obviously, because you're you know, you're preparing for what you're studying for, but it kind of creates a very similar way of thinking and it breathes a lot of people who were in tune to kind of think a certain way. And a lot of degrees don't kind of promote the idea of critical thing here. It's based off you know what what it what are we teaching you? And you know, that's kind of the cold hard facts of it. And I think outside of you know, your kind of your math and your business degrees. I mean inviting businesses should be so much creativity, but most of these degrees it's about this is the cold heart truth and this is what we've always kind of lived by. And then it's kind of like a bleed on effect and heaps of people doing it. So it just builds and creates a society of people kind of thinking the same way about it. Absolutely and often new university degrees you don't really what you said likely. It's absolutely true. You don't really learn about innovation, you don't run, you don't learn about how to create something. You learn about how something is done and now it's always been done. Yeah, yeah, right. So that's what happens. And you know, so people will finish degrees and, to be honest, some of them will probably end up getting very well paying jobs. You know, you can end up going becoming a manager, just play. Some people going to mad they under becoming a doctor and you know, they and they finished a degrees, they get a job, they have kids. You know those as little know the timelines a little. Time runs timelines very but you know it's sort of the same story. You know, they live, they live their life, they end up buying probably end up getting a mortgage, getting up getting a house, getting a house, they have kids and you know the scenario repeats for their kids and you know they'll probably live up decent life by their regards or what society told them what the life was that they should live. And you know they live technically quite happily. You know, they take a holiday once every once every year or twice every year, depending on what their job ends up being, and they live rest of their days out just sort of going to the job and doing all that stuff, and one day it all comes to an end and then they go on social cycle of life. That sounds like the cycle of life would rum. Yeah, for sure, and this is not the question is, what's wrong with that? Right, so that's the question. My question is the question that I proposed here, is why is that the right option? Proposing that to me or you sort of just putting that? I was just proposing it and I was happy. Yet it's yeah, they are. You have a slight pausing there as well. Yeah, it's interesting because on the one hand it creates like security and it gives people, you know, gives people direction. It might give them a sense of purpose, but the purpose is very limited to that, you know, that career choice or kind of that lifestyle, and people find it very difficult and very hard to move on from those situations, even if it's a situation where they might, you know, they're very unhappy and because they spent, you know, four years didding a degree and they've kind of created this life. Or even even people associate themselves with it, like, you know, John does this, like John Than Accountain or bills a ill berry's a but jack and those things are good, like we all need those sort of people, you know, in our day. You know, without those people like, without not run of the meal jobs, but without those sort of nine hundred and twenty five type jobs like, we wouldn't be able to we wouldn't be able to function as a society. But it definitely, I believe that's a large contributing factor to a lot of people's unhappiness in today's society. Of you they either too scared or the then they're not sure how to go outside of their area of expertise and learn something new. And even though they're kind of the essence of why you started studying was learned something new, you kind of forget that as you kind of grow on and you've got a lot of things that become dependent on that way of life and then it just like a trappe. Is that vicious cycle, like it's very you know that's very kind of cold hearted about it, but that's what a lot of people live their life as in that vicious cycle. Absolutely absolutely, and it's a cycle that will get you in there and you will never sort of you know, there's no escape. You end up getting a job and you start being bills in. The...

...bills just keep piling up, they just keep an increasing you know. You know then there's then there's, you know, increasing equity, you know, as in general. What is that the we called when everything goes up each year? Their mind? All right, can't think of the word. That's right. Yeah, yeah, that that thing, you know. So, you know, expenses go up as well. Live cost of living goes up and you just can't get out of the job, you know, and sometimes people have those flares, those little sparks, and those sparks end up getting buried between the bills and the lives and the kids and everything. Now, that's a general I'm not talking about all the people. Right. So this is this is a very old school mentality. But now I'm not I'm not going to stop there. I'm just going to keep on, sort of drill into this problem a little bit more, and then stores are looking at the solution and as to effect of it, you know, another problem. Nothing happens now more in I'm talking about the Times that we are in. Our generation particularly is a you know, there's a big little there's a big movement on that. Our generation is, you know, entrepreneurs. They really upandcoming. The influences in the entrepreneurs. Once again, they're doing what everyone else is doing. They trying to push. It's the majority always goes. You know what's bear with the majorities. No one else is, like trying to innovate, because that's the biggest problem. And even when they're doing the even when they are doing the entrepreneurship, and you know, first of all, I would like to say you know, if you're if you're following on someone's footstep by each step at a time, you know, following each step that's been tracing it, you're not an entrepreneur. You know, an entrepreneur, entrepreneur is someone who takes risk and, you know, find their own path. Now, the reason I talked about parts, it's because we keep going on the same part that everyone else is taken. No one is exploring, no one else is doing anything, you know, and it's really interesting, because I just want to this is sort of like our little black log on, because, you know, you there's so many people making podcast now and we're making podcasts and you would a steek that we're doing the same thing as everyone else. But I just want to I just want to actually say something here about how we've done things. We were doing these kind of podcast sort of videos before. It was cool, like one hundred. Yeah, I mean with we started doing it in too, you know, two thousand ten two, you know their ound. Then two thousand and eleven away, two thou twelve, and it's around there, right. So we started doing earlier year. Everything was like we're recording videos and we were doing vlogs, but they were, you know, we've never doing him for publicity. But yeah, and I remember that now, like I'd forgotten about that. Like even pray radio, we're doing like those little carvalogs and just chat. Yeah, we're like yeah, absolutely so. And we never did those things because we wanted to be like everyone else. In fact, everyone probably thought that we were silly and for doing those kind of things because, you know, they didn't think that was like cool or you know, they probably thought it was scrange. But we were doing us what we did, what we want to do now. The what what ends up happening is when you people actually choose a path that someone else's people, when you live someone else's life, what ends up happening is you will, you know, it's a simple saying. You will never be you know, you if you're copying someone, you will never be the best them, because they are the best them. If you're copying someone certain, let's say, if you're you know, if you're if you're copying a guy named Jerry. I bring up Jerry a lot. If you're copying a guy named Jerry and, you know, following his foot star footsteps, and as to you want to become exactly like him. Where they it's our doctor, or whether whether he's entrepreneur, whatever, he is right. If you're folding his steps or you know, there's a whole bunch of people like Jerry's. You know, let's say fitness industry is a big one, where people all want to become influencers and, you know, post pictures of their body and all that stuff. Yeah, you will never you will never be the best jerry ever, because the best Jerry is Jerry himself. But you can be the best. Is He the best you? You know. So, which is where you find your authenticity and do things different and you know, sometimes things may be hard, but I think the best way to go about it is to find your own ground and be authentic, because if you don't, if you don't find your why, why and who you are. Your why is the most important thing ever. That's the only thing you should find out. You know why, what's your why? You know whether you want to make a difference in the world or whether you just want to make money. And interesting thing about money is when you just want to make money and when you when you're why is money? It's driven by monetary value. You will you won't do anything, you won't get it, simple...

...as that reason being. The reason being it's sort of that similar scenarios, a scarcity mindset, because you're chasing something. And I'm only want to bring this in and bring this in quickly, is because think, think about it. Think about it like a cat, right. So have you ever you know that scarcitimenter. So if there was a there was expect aiment done with cat. So let's say, if you dangle dangle little string in front of a cat, right, the cat will chase it. Now, if you throw the cat through the string in front of the cat, the cat wouldn't give a shit, right. Yeah. So the reason I bring that particularly theory in it's sort of like money. Right, until you chase keep chasing money like that cat, you know you will never end up getting that money because you're someone who is constant to worry, worried state of money. So you will never end up getting their money because you that's who you are, who you worry about money. Right. You need to be a different person. You need to find your reason why you're doing it. And then you know, another thing is and now how are you going to do it? Do? You don't have to do it like how everyone else did. And even even in scenarios where you do end up doing that, things have been done before. So whether you end up becoming a doctor right or an actor right. So in acting industry, and I talk a lot about this because I have a lot of acting actor friends. Have a lot of actor friends, you know, they all sort of go through the same path where what everyone else is done to end up ending, to end up in Hollywood, right. And I always say to them, I say, what if there's another way, and they will always reply to me. Now, this is this is how it's always been done. And I just look at them and I say, and so you telling me there's no other way now, but that's how it's all has been done. Are you sure there's no other way? Yeah, well, that's how it's only always been done. So that's always the response. And and what what? I sort of suggested, and there are people out there who have alternative methods. Like you. Look at the Dwain Johnson, the Rock. He was an actor, he sort of came through, he built a he build a sort of a fame, he built a name for himself and you end up going to movies and he is now the biggest star on the planet. Yes, it's a great he didn't take that. He didn't take the road that everyone else did. He didn't go to a drama school, he didn't go to he you know, he didn't. He didn't go to drama school, hitting featuring indie films, he didn't do any of that. You know, I'm not saying this role anything wrong with those things, but you don't have to do things because they've always been done like that. This this million ways to do one thing, doesn't you know, and there's no one right way of methodology of doing something. You know, it's it's yeah, so there's no right math. You know some sometimes things work for people and sometimes they don't. You know, I want to use an example here, and I heard this example right and I can't remember where from. It's like, imagine you're trying to put a nail in a wall right, and if he trying to hammered that in and you try to hammer that in much as you can and it's just doesn't going right. You know, you, what you say is ball. Everyone just try. Everyone hammers it in and it goes in. But you know, maybe would you do you just keep doing it? Would you in? A lot of people, their mentalities, will just keep hammering it in until one day or going because that's how everyone else does it. But you know, maybe you can stop there and think about the fact that, well, if I'm hammering that in, is it a possibility there's something behind there? There's maybe there's a metal piece behind there? Do I need to look at another place to nail this nail this thing? Am I holding the you know? Am I holding the nail wrong? We're wrong, or should I use a hammer to kneel that in, because you know, I've been hammering it in with my hand. Well, you know, it's just saying just questioning yourself, questioning the path. The dwyan drop Johnson was a really good example of it because he, you know, he perfected his craft of performance and even I wasn't acting specifically, he was obviously, you know, very successful. One of the most successful complete pro wrestlers of all time, you know, and that in itself is a it's an an athletic endeavor first and foremost. So it's then very much so it's about performance to so it's about building a character, making people believe that character and going from there. But he's original goal was never to be, you know, the biggest actor in the world. It's sort of just organically came as he, I'm sure, developed as a person and wanted to try new things. He sort of fell into and I guess that's kind of the limitation of, you know, getting a degree or getting a formal sense of education one because you, you know, for a...

...long time you feel you know, you feel like a sense of identity to being that you know, being that type of person or having that degree, and we certainly all need like qualifications, we all need things that are going to help us level up. But that's how you get trapped, because then there's no creativity, there's no expansion of that you know, of that sort of thought process. It's like, okay, I'm going to become this one thing in stick to this one thing, you know, ironically enough, or even talk about Jeff Bezos last night and he's he's even maybe even a better example. You know, he's for people that don't know, he's obviously the founder, in current you know, big boss of Amazon, the well pretty much the biggest company in the world, and he's certainly the most wealthiest person in the world. But he started out, you know, doing very well at Uni high school, got into uni, wasn't really sure what he wanted to do, studied electrical engineering and then went into the financial industry. So he was a stockbroker and then, I think by the age of thirty, he was in charge of one of the biggest investment or of senior vice president or something of one of the biggest investment firms in the world, and then he sort of realized like wow, this is like, you know, this is great, and I had more money than I knew what to do with, but I didn't really find happiness. And he's why I was always I want to do something bigger, like I want to make change, I want to help people, I want to I want to do something that's never been done before. And then eventually that went from, you know, obviously creating Amazon, and I actually got reminded of it. I forgot about it. But for the longest time Amazon was just like books. It was just like you buy a book, you know, you buy a physical book and then obviously technology came over and you buy an audio book and then they sort of branched out onto that. And you know, we're sort of out outside the scope of Amazon a little bit because they haven't quite hit the Australian market yet. This sort of they're here, but that, you know, still a very still a very new concept a lot of people and people aren't using it. But overseas it's just like if you need a if you need a plate, you drop a plate, you just go on Amazon. Then it's there the next day. And that's kind of testimony to his innovation that he started out doing one thing, he went into something else, like he was leveling up all the time, but he constantly had this thought in the back of his head like I need to do something, I need to be something bigger, and we can all do that in our own lives. That doesn't have to be giant steps, but I think if our attitude is about that, then you'll constantly find that, you know, if you want it, like some people won't get lucky they might find something when they're young that they love to do and then kind of bringing it back to Hollywood. Like a lot of a lot of actors who make it really big, they sort of go away in a sense because they've sort of done it and they realize like wow, I don't actually want to do this as much. So thought or maybe I did at one stage. But it's the most successful people the ones that obviously have, you know, insane work ethics and they they obviously work really hard and they're very disciplined and very regimented about what they do. And I guess that a benefit of tertiary education or a formal education. You kind of get taught those principles. But if you hold onto your why and remember why you started, you know the pretty much anyone who started because it's for monetary value don't make it because it just doesn't last. Like you can. You can actually learn a lot of money and then you just realize there's no satisfaction in that. So if you hold into that why. So I looked at innovating your own life and that could just be in your own mentality. Keep leveling up and you'll just keep doing you know, you keep doing and growing things that your I believe that will just help get you towards joy and help make life better. Absolutely, innovation makes you innovation. Innovation is progression and progression, as we said before, progression makes you happy. Progression is happiness, progression is growth, progression is life. Yeah, reck his love, Shrek Isla, let's not do go on that one. That's a little sorry, but you know, absolutely, and now you know he on the mark there. You know, Jeff Bess is a great example. He always stayed innovative in a sense where they you know, he found another methodology of doing something. I'm sure people started him at the time and said, well, there's no way you can sell books online. I mean he started selling everything online. You know, it's a this is an interesting concept that when people end up doing it, you know he just find he said, well, you know, he came up with an idea and made it happened. And you know, another example of it is Steve Jobs. It was a it was another great innovator in a sense where you know he did what you know what what nothing known ever did before. He came up with, at the time, computers. You know, computers were very not use a friendly when he was started working. This isn't this is a really nice documentary about as to what he did. But you know, he made documentary friends. You know, he made computers user friendly. You know, interface was really the GOIE. Interface was a result of, you know, Steve Jobs doing it. You know, Steve Jobs really pushing that innovation. Another example of that...

...is, you know, when Steve Job so steve jobs himself. So he is probably by far. You know, you would always regard him as one of the most innovative people in the world. I mean, you know, if if he was alive today, I wonder what I would have loved to seeing. Love to see what he would have done. But you know, he dropped out of college and but what he did do was he did take up this tile Tal typography class, or choreographer choreography class class. But you know, that's where he decided that he was going to put Nice Font in the computers, and that's with the fonts in all modern computers came from. If it was if he never took that class at university and that's the only class he took, because he really dropped out of university. And you know he took that class and he didn't take that class. You know he would have not. You know, we would have not had we've not had any modern, any fancy fonts in our computers. So just goes to show, you know, how much how important it is to be innovative and to do things differently. Right now. HMM. Now, these are other these others examples as well that you can look at and there's so many people out there who are doing it. But now there's just there's just different ways to do things and if someone tells you that there's only one way to do things and you need to stick in you need to stick to it, you can tell them to fuck off and, you know, to be honest, people will make you feel pretty shitty about finding your own path because it makes them feel uncomfortable. You know, makes people feel uncomfortable that you are you know, you're finding your own path, which is just completely different in is. You know, it's one of those things where people are afraid, you know, almost that how could someone like you is you know, how could someone just take completely path because, you know, it goes against everything they know? You know, I need another example here. I work in, once again, technology and, you know, business. So where we look at, you know, where we look at how businesses perform and try to batter businesses so, you know, increase the operation in operation efficiency. And I find, you know, one of my jobs used to look at processes and how certain things are done. And you know what, I would go in and look at how people are doing things and shore enough, people are still doing you know, the old pen and paper and the excel sheets, and you know, it's like they living in the nineties, right, and I come in now. So well, you know, we can replace all that with this thing. And you know they sure enough. And the first response I get is it's always been done like that. Yeah, well, you know, that's the response I get. It's always been done like that. What does so? What if that's always been done like that? Why? Why? Why wouldn't you not change? Why would you not upgrade? Right, you know you don't. You don't. It's like you know, it's like anything in life. You know, you think about the progression of things. Time changes, things change. You have to change your mentality and if you don't do that, you know, if you stick to that, you know, surely enough, you will be out of the game sooner or later. You know, it's like, you know, let's say if there was a you know, there was a doctor's prescribed your medicine for something, you know, four years ago, and whenever you get sick, you still keep taking that because that's how you've always taken it. That's not how it works. That's not what you did and you get up. Is the upgrade right. That's like the same. That's a practical example of what you just say. That they like that's the same principle. Like imagine. Yeah, imagine doing something that worked. And I guess that kind of goes back to the loop, in the trap of your formal education. Like, if you're running taught this one way, then that's kind of the only way, you know, but if you've got another way that's more efficient, like be open to it, let it, you know, let it, embrace it and learn about it, and you're probably going to make your life easier. That's a beautiful thing about technology. It's all about constant innovation, for sure, and that's and life is about innovation, and I think you will we get innovate and there's there's a way of doing everything as well. And so many people would you know, I suppose the almost afraid I suppose where there? You know, they don't want to explore what's out there, what other options. And you know what I said before, which is a pretty big deal as to, you know, find your own bath. And I'm talking about small things now, talking about things like you know, or you know, you you know. Let's say you've been working at a job or let's say eight years, and you know what you do. Let's say you bring the orders, right, you brint the orders and then you stap with them and then, you know, you write on them saying done. If you process the order,...

...and then you've done it. And now you know, someone comes in and tells you all that can be done, you know, automatically in a computer system, and I guarantee you you know what the first response would be from that person has been doing it. Well, it's always been done like that. If, if it ain't broken, why? I feel exit? Well, because there's more efficient way to do it. Yeah, it comes. That probably comes from a little bit of a fear of, you know, job replacement, but then that would just force you to evolve and take on a new position or do something like that. Like you've got to you've got to be willing and open and that's a great example because that happens so calm, so common. I'm sure, and I'm so sure that some many people out there that have worked in a similar atmosphere where there was something that, you know, at first it felt very scary and it felt like, well, this is going to take over, this is going to change, you know, the way we do things. That maybe the comfortable feeling of the way we do it. But like it's better, like it is more efficient than if you the more efficient you are in life, like the better, the more things you can get done, them more time you have to get things done. That was a great that's a great analogy. that. Well, that's it, right, that's it. And you know, there is that's it. You got to be different, you be yourself, right, that's it. And there's another. There's another. There's another are we are, which is completely you know, so people in regards to so this is this is very business I was talking about. I was talking about their business career. Who you end up choosing to become in a person, and now if I talk about, you know, in more, you know, at a personal level. Right. So people in if you look at attraction, right, attraction is a very interesting one, where people will be attracted to people that they're peer group and people around them think that are attracted. And you know, you know, they know damn well what they but you know that person is attractive. And let's say, you know I'm talking about like, let's say person a. You know finds person be attractive, but you know he's beer. Their BA beer group is not particularly attracted to that kind of person. That person will end up saying, well, no, I'm not attractive to person be because X Y. is that? Because my peer groups have, you know, think they're not attractive. So now that's an interesting one, because now that's a personal level and I just wanted, you know, say how much that influence happens. You know, because you're listening to, literally listening to what people are saying and you're letting them influences not even thinking if there's another way. Right, you're not being different, you're not being yourself because you're attracted to that person, but because you know you what you're going to you have to go with the crowds if the crowd doesn't think they're not attractive, so you have to. You must think they're not attractive because you know obviously there must be something wrong with you if you find them attractive. You know, what do you think of that one? Okay, example you, I think you've rather my brain. They're a little bit I'm trying to comprehend it. It's is it? Could it be that people is there a fear of failure with it? Like it sounds very general, but is, you know, is that why? Obviously there's like a like a sheep ask way of looking out it where yourself following. You know, maybe you're worried about saying the wrong thing or doing the wrong thing. Do you think that maybe people just continue to follow the same way because it's just a comfortable feeling, like it's it's familiarity. Maybe. Well, it just works right, so that's I mean it works. It works by changing, you know. Once again, it goes back to the thing what people keep saying to me. Why change something that works? That's that's a whole problem. Yeah, the the way of thinking, because you know their friends that they're saying, you know, let's say friends saying, well, person be the x kind of people are attractive, the why kind of people are not attractive. But you know, for some reason you find the white people attractive, but you know gonna say you're not going to tell your friends and your peers and your family because that you've because, well, I guess you know you they must be right, so you're going to go with them, because it works for them, so it has to work for you. And I really want to like, how crazy is that that you are attracted to someone but you know, you question your own inner, you question yourself because you know that's what your peers do or that's what your friends are and that's what society does. And it's very interesting because if you think about how these things end up being in attraction is a big one. People, you know, and I see it all the time, and I see it all the time where people are you know, people are attracted to certain kind of people.

And then, you know, I know you will look at a person and see what kind of person they are, what with right it's almost like it's almost like you can just predict it what kind of person they would be with right, yeah, based what they are, and it's really interesting and I find that really interesting because it's just it's just interesting how it works, because they're sticking to what the everyone knows and you know, they don't want to break any boundaries and because you know they don't want to do anything and you know it's still I'll tell you what, look, I'll tell you what the fear is. Right, it's there. Rose up parks, example, you know Rosa Park. WHO protested? When was it when? You know, equality between the black people, and am allowed to say black people because technically I'm Brown, so the end word, I would never say that. Well, but yeah, so you know, she was standing up for that and she stood up and she got ridiculed, but eventually turn into thing. But the difference was she stood up. So she did her own innovitial. That was innovation. We read about those things and we love innovators. Yet none of us want to move, even though we sometimes will set prefires. What we want just to stick to the method that everyone else is done. Yep, I find that fascinating. I don't think that's a white way to go buy things. Now it's very it's kind of very problematic and very, very to the way our society has been built and it believed. Like, and I guess it depends on how you are raised in a sense, like if you are if you are encouraged with things you did. Like if you were or if you socialize in a group where people are looking at for each other and trying to get the best out of each other, then I think more often not like you, you'll help each other to grow and you're going to continue to grow, and I think that's the beauty of having like a real diverse group of friends, if you can kind of bounce ideas of each other and you can hear different ideas from different perspectives and you go into things with a mindset of growth and kind of looking for what now, kind of the deeper meaning of things. But like why is this thing done differently? And I guess that's a problem when you have maybe a similar group of friends or, you know, similar work environment or anything like that, like you're just not forced to go outside of your comfort zone all the time, so you just don't like obviously being uncomfortable is uncomfortable. So it's like it's something that if you're not forced to do, you generally won't and that I guess that idea or that that point you brought up about that similar you know, that's similar way people dress in the similar way people look. Like it's that feeling of it's that feeling of comfort that's not forcing, that's forcing you to be the same. So, even though it might feel like it's the right thing to do and it's like the safe thing to do, it, you really just blending in with each other and you're not actually using you know what, we all have a unique personality trait to better better situation or just kind of continue to grow in life. It's so easy to do. Like I'll always find myself slipping in a way I thought or maybe I might consume a certain type of media for a while and then eventually I just sort of start thinking in that way alone and I don't sort of broaden my spectrum. So it's like, as long as I'm thinking like on two ends, like problem like kind of problem solving is like why is this the case? And then what can I do to help sort of counteract that? I feel pretty good with it and I feel I can pick up from a lot of a people when they close minded. But if you sort of aren't thinking that way, then it's very easy to kind of get blinded by yourself and then that kind of rolls on from there and maybe that's like I'm kind of guessing a little bit by that happens. But I think the people that I've dealt with that have that similar personality trait or those examples that you talked about, the they're often, very often they close minded, and it might not even be their own fault. It might just be the way they are raised or whatever else, but they they all have that in common and it's just like a it's a trap, it really is. Well, the sad part is that's roughly half the word, probably more. If yeah, that's right, that's right. Yeah, and like yeah, I think we've got us. We've got a society of people here who are pretending to be open minded. Yet they pretending to be open minded at to the you know, what does open minded really means? Open minded means that you're open to possibility of the life, possibilities of life, possibility of work. You know, that's what it means. But what they're doing is they are really what. They just saying that they open minded, but yet they keep doing the same thing. That what everyone else is doing. I mean you don't not really open minded, then I yeah, the opposite, for sure. It's complete opposite, you know, and which is which is fascinating book, because I can everyone who's told...

...me that the open minded. I can get it. I can this view things. I can list a not fitting majority of things about them. I can say, well, this is what you the this is the you're right there. You're following everyone else. It's the sheep, sheep mentality. Just follow the herd, you know, and it's a it's a disease, I almost want to say, because in society, in life, there's a construct that we live in and there's so many things that are there and no one ever questions. Right there. I mean there's a there's a website, actually really funny website. It says the most useless rule laws. Thus ever question those laws. Right. There's other things, you know. Yeah, yeah, in society, like you know, if you don't want the religion has certain rules and you're like, well, what the fuck? You know? Or your parents will put certain rules in, all your friends will put certain rules in, and you know, it's it's a it's a thing like Oh, you know, I'm going to use a great example. I want use an example here. When people say, Oh, you know, just a small example here. Or why do you of? Why do each you with your mouth open right, or like you have to sit while eating or, you know, you have to have breakfast. So these things that are listed are just quickly. They were random things like you know, for example, you have to have breakfast. See, that's really interesting because, well, in everyone just believes it that we have to have breakfast and no one really questions. Well, should we have it? We should do we need to be but you know, our teachers told us, will our mum to. My Mom told me that you should have breakfast. I'm going to have breakers. I guess everyone must be right. Yeah, we know is breakfast is the most important now a day. What gets your day going? It's no, it's not. It's but you know, Lacklin, what's interesting is our bodies were always telling us not to have that breakfast. Yeah, you know, no one, no one wants to eat in the morning. So our bodies were telling us not to have breakfast, but we forced ourselves and everyone has breakfast. It's a thing because that's what society does and it's kind of something you always do. So you do it with that always thinking why you do it. That's right and and something it's sort of base a little off old science and kind of I guess the idea that you know, you needed to you need food to help get your day going, when, you know, we know our ancestry was not that. Our the INCESTRY was the opposite. It was like you sort of ate at night and then he fasted throughout most of the day and you sort of spend the day doing things so you could eat at night. And Yeah, it kind of became. Yeah, it obviously became a social norm and it's just one great example something that we do. Yeah, no one questions it. On questions it. What's happening there? People just doing it. And you know, there's another other examples, like know, when people say to you, you know, all you need to have table manners or like, you know, who the fuck are coming up with these things? Like what is these things people are coming up with? You know, that's not like manner is like, well, fuck, you know, I want to, you know, I want to. Like the another example of his I oh, well, you should eat this with a fork. They should. Well, what if I want to eat it with what? My hands? You know, well, it's not polite. What the fuck do you mean? It's not polite? You know what? That's just an example, right. You know who came up with that rule and the that's I'm just using those rules because I hear them a lot. My parents tell me to you know, all you have to eat like these. Why? You know, and I'm got that's a little bit extreme. You don't have to have to do those. But those are just small example and no one ever questions what happens there. Is it's a great minster, right, just that question, just question everything felt, question everything else. Yeah, question everything. What are you doing? I mean I dare you to go out in a day and see the things that you do and ask yourself why? Why do you do them? Right, you know they if you wake up in the morning and you know you may have a habit, I mean a tie. And now people are going to get very angry at me for saying this, but the way we are at the moment it's very, Sudo cody, as in very we're like an algorithm. Right, so our algorithm has a has boundaries, right, very safe algorithm. So the way it works is, I wake up, should I do X Y Zaid? Yes, no, yes, does society says I should do it? Yes, okay, I will do it. Should I do x hit? said the society say should I do it? No, Oh, should I do it? No, because Society Says No. But there's no question happening as to why. Because you at the moment, there's no difference between you and the program is in. The programming is coming from society, like as in New People around you. You know, there was a there's a there was a examination down on few people and they said people who took a political stance on you know, particularly said they stood by a certain party,...

...was actually not because that's what they thought, but in fact because what their social programming was right. Yeah, yeah, that makes sense, doesn't it? Absolutely, and you know. So there's these other things as well, like you know, and we end up yet so this. That's just an example. We don't we just consume, which is it's cool. We do what everyone else is doing. No one's questioning anything. And you know, who are you voting for? Why are you voting for someone? Do you do? You know much about it? I mean, I know Australia, right all, I mean Australia. It's really interesting because the day the democracy system right, it's great, it's great, but at the same time most people will vote for someone. But you know, an average Australian or average American or average anyone else, doesn't really know who they voting for or what they're voting for. They just do what they what they're doing right, yeah, yeah, which is doing it? Or, you know, they would sit around and talk shit every now and then, but you know, that's it. No one's really doing anything. And you know, and it once again like, you know, the the big one is another whatsow. This is an interesting or so you know, I've had. I've run into people who are great advocate for climate change and, you know, props to them for that, and I've seen those exact people bring to five hundred pages of fucking bullshit, because that's how it's been done before and that's how they've all done, always done their job. You know, it's so interesting because they're a advocating for climate change. You know, I want, I would normally give them props for it, but I almost have a feeling that they're doing it because everyone else is doing it, because on the other side, if they were questioning one of those things, they would go, well, I'm a great advocate for prior you know, climate change. Should I be printing five hundred pages? You know what I mean to get them saying these no question happening like that. What was my mind like? How is that possible? Like, are you that insane? Is that how mechanical you are? And I'm talking like, you know, I'm talking to myself here as well at times. You know, I'm I've always been a little bit, you know, personally and local. I know you have in we've been always sort of like a little bit different, sort of like you know, we've been a bit alternate, alternative. Yeah, so that's like we've been done things, definitely, you know, but it's more so questioning things. Right, it's why are you doing something? What's happening? You can't advocate for can't advocate for climate change and go to work and print five hundred pages because, well, that's how it's holds to. When there's completely there's another way to do it. You know, I'm not talking, let's say, you know, if you someone out there, he don't blame climate change, why would you still waste paper? You know, just this is the example. Are you question should you question that? Well, you should, because when the printing methodology came around, there was a lot of paper and that's what people did. Right and that's you know, they didn't they didn't have computers, so they did printing. We have different in a different scenario now, so you should do something different. Maybe should look into it, maybe should consider it. You know, it's just a great it is just another example. And you know, and then so many example that people do and people people sort of stand for different things because you know one group of their friends or what everyone else is doing. Then you know that's what they've done, so fe're comfortable with and it just ends up being a cycle and they never question anything. Yeah, that's fireless and I guess that's the problem with identity politics or that a lot of the I don't want to use the word social justice, but a lot of things and a lot of reasoning that people do things like, I guess if you're doing something because you you know, someone else told you to do it, or you don't look too far into it and you sort of do it like you're actually kind of blinded to the shortcomings and you're blinded to the hypocrisy of it because you're doing it for the wrong reason and anyone who does anything for the right reason would do the things the right way, because you're just constantly looking at it and are why is this happening? What do I need to do? That there and that printing things a great example. Like if you actually really know you were doing it for the right reason, you would you would see what, literally this paper came from trees and the trees are we need more trees to be able to breathe and to live and obviously to impede less on nature. But you can, yeah, you can absolutely apply that into many different things in life. I think the big thing with like kind of the political sphere is how a lot of people feel. It's not so much a male but there's certainly like a kind of an Agreece with the I get what, guess what you would call the like left leaning political people. So the political left believe that there's, you know, there's a very select few people at the top that make a lot...

...of decisions and we're all kind of affected upon that and there's a lot of you know, there's a lot of power at play there and people not sharing things around. But I think time the people that go, you know, the people that think that way, they're they're creating their own sort of very closeminded way of thinking that they're not being open in themselves, because there's kind of going so far the other way and they just not thinking very much, like they're just so biased, as so wrapped up in kind of the principle of it or what they believe. Not even they believe they're doing the right things. I don't actually think they are. They doing it for the wrong reason and once you kind of realize that, you can you figure out a lot of people are just bullshitt like they're just fucking they're just make it, just exacting with it. I mean, I'm going to I'm going to quote your Rugan hair actually it's pretty relevant. You know, he we there's people out there and we sometimes, you know, you can almost you can entertain the thought that there's people out there, someone out there who's controlling it, out there's controlling it, all these people out there. You know, there's some very powerful people out there controlling it at all. And you know what, yes, there's marketing in this advertisement that is very well designed, and we talked about this in the you know, AP eppisode three and about this and how the influence works. But you know, but at the same time, you know, I think there's more chances that people are just dumb as fuck. Yeah, yeah, and I unfortunately it sounds very harsh, but I know I'm not. Yet it is, you know, I think majority is that versus, you know, someone out there who's controlling it all. There's more possibility that we all just dumb as fuck. Yeah, it was, lad easily. Maybe we know, you know, maybe dams another white world use, but we are very easily influence. We not questioning. You know, there's a there's a you know, I have a you know, I have even some good friends. You know, even this few people have very close to me would always say to me, is that you know? Well, you know, you get something like that. You know. I'm actually going to use an example. I'm not going to quote a name, but it's a pretty interesting example. But you know, you'd have. I have friends who would say to me, well, you know, someone is lucky because they have intelligence. Right. Well, you know, and I that's who I am. That's just who I am, you know, if they've accepted who they are. You know, and once again Tony robins talks about it as well. He goes, when did you decide? At What Day did you decide? That's who you just that's just who you are. You know, you know so many people will say, well, that's who I that's just who I am, that's how I do things. Or you know, intelligence is an interesting one because, you know, people get told at a very early age where they fit in a slot and and, you know, and they just sort of spend rest of their lives there. You know, intelligence. Intelligence is an interesting one where, you know, I personally believe that intelligence is more to do with effort than actually genetically being gifted. Yeah, most definitely. Do you know what I mean? To get what I'm saying? So, yeah, it's discipline, it's it's now smaller discipline. It's an ape, it's an effort to learn and to be constantly in a growth mindset. That's it. It's more effort. It's effort. You know, a great example of his like, for example, people say, who, I can't cook, right, fuck did up? was I borne by was? It was up where other people bond knowing how to cook. Yeah, you know, you know, how how does that work? Like, why are you saying that? Do Yourself in a why are you putting yourself in their minds? Is like, well, that's just who I am. I can't cook because you know someone that's as the problem. No one's questioning at well, is it a possibility that I'm not? I have never really learned how to Cook, you know, and and people blames like, well, other people are smart and this is learn how to cook. No, motherfucker, they put effort in this. This time people will see. It's like, you know, I don't an error. It tries an error, I hurt people. I saw the comments on economic recifire like or easier. You know, forty millions or sixty million dollars or forty million dollars in forty seconds. I'm like, you stupid a shit. What about the training? What about the effort? What about know all the years of grind that it took to be there at that point? But all you thing is the forty two that he met and forty million dollars of sixty million dollars. Yeah, that's right, and that's that's kind of a whole nother idea. That's why, that's why I watch fights at home now, like I can't actually go and watch. I can't actually go and watch because there's a lot of like there's a lot of stupidity that goes into the sport because people have a very close minded way of looking at it's like, Oh, why would I pay for a fight that? Then he goes forty seconds and it's like almost don't have the effort to go into it. But that that way. I think, like that very close minded way of thinking, like you could actually answer that for yourself. Intense seconds sports and athletic competition. There's two people throwing punges at each other. Someone goes down, if someone hits someone in the right spot, they're probably going to go down. You know, if he is, he's not. They just he's not getting paid for a...

...new million dollars because he asked for him. He's getting paid forty million dollars because he brings him too hundred Indollars, whoever revenue. Like. It's like, fuck me, absolutely, absolute, sure, you don't have to know that exactly, but you have to just understand that, like, these sort of things don't just happen like and it's not. I think that's just insecurity and that's just people. Sport brings out like the best and the worst in people. Absolutely. You know, there's one of the greatest thing, one of the greatest, sorry, one of the greatest thing goes people get paid not what they're time, not for their time, but for what they're worth. Yet simple as that. Increase your what you know, if you want to earn more money, increase you're worth. Actually, actually, you know, want to talk about something, and innovation comes into that as well. You know, you can innovrate how you get paid. You know, there is in a really cool example that I saw the today and he said a bar of iron arm cost about five bucks. Like you know, I think it was the kilof iron. Know, was like a hundred grams of iron. What it? I forgot what it was. Yeah, if you make a horse shoe out of it, you can sell for twenty bucks. If you make if you make what else was it? You know, if you can make points, points, I don't know, I don't think it was going. Yeah, that's time. If you could make those watch dials, what are they called? Little Watch gears? Yeah, yeah, you can sell those up to you know, I don't know, hundreds of thousand because you know, if you put it in watches like those, watches go out for crazy prices. But this is an example. You know, some of these watches, you know, you look at some watching watch companies and some of these watches are like hundredzero dollar watches, right, and which is really interesting, example, because the mechanics are the same, aren't they? But they just selling it different what they're worth, which is interesting as to you know, how you innovate, because that's what it is, innovation, and which is really so you know, that's the whole idea of what I wanted to talk about today. And you know it's you know that's me, but you know, I really think that we as a society, there something wrong here, I feel. What are your thoughts about? Right? Your that closing thoughts? Yeah, okay, okay, now, and it's not. Yeah, it's not just you like. It's because you're you've made a real conscious effort of deciding that's the way you want to look at life and the way you want to work towards life, and then you just are on in a in a state of constant improvement and, like what we spoke about, I think probably every episode like self ordering, like being honest with yourself and being honest with everything else. And once you kind of get that clarity of your own actions in your own thoughts, you kind of drift. You can use that in every every part of life and and it's just a basic principle of being diligent with it. Like you just have to just be, just be thinking about it. Like, don't don't know, take it seriously, because it is serious, but it doesn't have to be stressful, and I think it's just important to to still have empathy, like we still need to understand that everyone has their own circumstances and reasons for doing things. But ultimately, if you're if you're constantly working on a way to get better and or constantly work on a way to improve, then you're going to find yourself innovating in your own life, like you're going to you're going to be the Jeff Bezos of your own pod and like yeah, yeah, yeah, you're not going to. You're probably not going to create the next Amazon, but you're going to continually improve and get better. There's that's the might lock. So just quickly on that one. Maybe maybe you've could create the next amason. You know. Yeah, that's it, that's that's what I'm that's a whole idea of it. Maybe you will create the next Emason, but you know who's telling you that you can't? Yeah, exactly, and if yet, just don't live in that mindset. If you can't live in the mindset of like you can. We live in a time and age where there's so much chance and choice and opportunity to do so many great things and definitely, like I found myself like really always frustrated with the way things were and being told things for really poor reasoning. And I guess that's why my counter that was to be over analytical and, you know, to kind of come at it from a different angle. But what it did is it just made you know, the same sort of thing. People are cheas you're really really smile or you look at things openly or just a good way of looking at it's like it took time and and like I was the same. I couldn't cook for Shit and I used to say, I'm just not going to cook it. Know, I just find it. I just never tried, you know, I just never, never gave it a go. And then once you give it a go, you we all have our own strengths and then all of a sudden, like fuck, I love cooking now and it's a beautiful it's a beautiful thing. But if I didn't try and I just stayed and was like stuck in my old ways of saying, Oh, you know, I just can't cook with them. Guess what, I'd still be in fucking fries and I'd still be bloody twenty kils overweight. So we could do it in...

...our own lives, weeps, and everyone has the power and opportunity. Would have been a world where resources are these incredible resources right. The Internet is available to everyone. Everyone can learn everything, and it's brilliant that you is. You know, you can do a lot. You can do anything you want to know. Don't let those self limiting beliefs stick around. Question everything in this I just want to bring something up here. This to actually scenarios that personally happened to me. I remember so. One of my actually relatives said to me this. Me Said, what are you chasing? I like well, you know what I'm chasing is, you know, I want to personally, I want to, you know, change the word, I want to see the difference in what I want to make people better. I want to do all these things right and in the process I would like to be a billionaire as well. That was my answer, you know, very, very cheek answer. You but by they thought it was a cheek answer. By all means. I believe the one hundred percent. Is Not a part of me who doesn't believe it. I believe in one hundred percent. Yeah, you know what was the response? They laughed and they said to me, you guys, are you crazy? There's like one in millions of millions of people who end up doing something like that. And Yeah, I simply, I simply propose this. Is there anyone who said that one person out of the million is not going to be me? Yeah, simple as that. That's right, simple as's right. The attitude that you have towards it, in the attitude that they have towards it. I'm sure we, if we really went deep, we could find that blade into all areas of life. It's all right. Yeah, yeah, yes, a hundred percent like that, pessimistic, negative, yeah, you can't do thinks said of like wow, that's unbelievable, like man, that's awesome that you think that way, like go for for sure. Thank you appreciate that. There's another I want to use. It's another example use here and now, like what we're talking about, just about cooking, which is a great example. So I I once had a friend, I'm not going to send names, but let's say they were the same ethnicity as me. Right, and I think about Pakistani people. They are a little bit entitled in Weird Ways. They're lovely people, they're probably on this. They're very smart people, they're probably one of the sweetest people on the planet. They kind, but sometimes they can be entitled, specially to their own their own people, quote uncut. Right. Yeah, and you know, I remember so one that someone once said to me, and he said, no, they didn't say this, they didn't say to me, but I heard it from a source, and you know people goes gossip. So, yeah, if things very quickly. So the guy said to me said, well, you know, a new hands up working in all these jobs, but you know, he never helps me out. You know, but he never helps me out. I've got the same qualifications as him. In fact I've got more qualifications and I could probably do all the jobs that he's doing. So you know, it's not there's nothing special. You know, he should get me a job there. I could do the job better than him. And all I thought when they said that to me, I said, if you could a do the job better than me, you wouldn't need me to help you out. To get you get that, get you that job, or ki who? Yeah it, you could possibly do the job better than me if you could do what I could do. You know, which, you know, the sad thing is not a probably if we do it a sad think they probably could, but they're doing the same thing because they're not loking it that for they just seeing how well he's doing it. So we must be easy. No, it's all about effort. It's just a thing. So they put self limiting beliefs, which is something like you know what you said, I can't cook. Well, fuck well, the people can cook, I can't cook. It's it's not that simple like it. That's not how it works. You know, there's people out there. You know one of the great example is because I did a little bit of it. It's I studied acting as well, a little bit, and one of the great things of the great interesting things that happen. So many people believe, and they're very strong believes about that they can't sing right and it's really interesting. In acting school they did this. We had this singing class and they broke it down. It was amazing. The people who couldn't sing sing the best. Wow, yeah, it was incred because it was a it was there was a method. Let you do it. And the people who can sing what they did. They put effort into learning because they'd thought it was cool. So people seeing, seeing, they're like wall fucker or consumer Rudy. Fascinating is sorry. If yeah, that's a very yeah, it's a very funny inside into how psychology, the psychology of the mind, will work. Like the you think that you're you know, and that's one thing that gry vantage I talks about, is like your strengths, like doubling down in your strengths, like you don't rest on them, you don't just say I've got this big covered, like I've got to go, like that thing will go like in the ID. Like the idea that the people that couldn't sing had and they improved out of sight because they Li listen, that they learn and they weren't close minded and pigheaded about it. And I'm guessing where you're in that class. Or is that...

...something that you were just that was just you and I wasn't us. Yes, I I'd imagine you were the one of the guys that got in there and actually was able to pumps. Now, yeah, yeah, it's good. Fuck, it's good fun. You know, we we was like, yeah, it was like, you know, you saying something funny. You know. Yeah, yeah, it was fun, but that's this is an interesting concept, but hands up, happening right. But yes, I'm just going to do some quick closing remarks. This has been a interesting one and, you know, I think it's nonetheless, it's a very important one, as all of our podcasts have been so far. I think I still love our last podcast the more so if you haven't heard that one. So please check it out. Episode six. It's going to be up soon. Well, it will be up before this alisod. It doesn't make sense. Yeah, that's right episode. Yeah, this is episode six. Yeah, but yeah, so, you know, question everything. See why are things done certain ways? There a reason why they're being done that way? Is there a better way that can be done? You know, don't do stn't put selflimiting beliefs on yourself. You know, and you know, if you're advocate for something and you know question are you question yourself. Are you advocate for something because everyone else is an advocate for it, or you really truly believe in the cause? You know, if you believe in the core cause, by all means, stick by it one hundred percent. Go all in, but then don't be doing other shit, like, you know, if you're an advocate for, you know, climate change, don't be printing five hundred pages, you know, don't like to use. Stay true to its. Stay Treaty Yourself. And Yeah, that stay true too as well. Yeah, and I truly believe, I truly believe, that everyone is capable of being their own great self, even though, yes, previously I said everyone is dumb as buck. Yeah, well, everyone has a potential. Most people, yeah, most people will you know it. Yeah, that's and that's the attitude to have, is that people can change, like even I most people. Statistically, why it's like the attitude to have is that people's were so that that's not going to let you close up. This isn't a good one. Once again, loving good podcast, but I like you a wrap up.
