Think Different Theory

Communication and Things I Am Learning In Haw

WHAT IS THIS EPISODE ABOUT?

In this episode, I’m going to talk about the importance of perspective and communication, and share what I am learning about in Kauai, Hawaii. Society always expects us to do things in line with the norms, but I’ve discovered that when one has an open mind and decides to do things differently, their perspective is widened and they get to learn so many valuable things.

WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?

Tune in as I also share how seeing the way people think and act differently has enabled me to figure out what it is I want to achieve and the direction I want to take in life. Enjoy!

Here are the key topics discussed in this episode:

  • The absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous south side of Kauai (02:13)
  • Learning our best lessons in life by thinking differently (04:59)
  • United behind America? Democrats versus Republicans(10:26)
  • The way we grow up and where we grow up shapes who we become (13:09)
  • Understanding how people form their beliefs and perspectives on life (15:55)
  • The importance of communication and how it has lost it’s value in today’s society  (17:54)
  • Getting a better understanding of what it means to be successful in all areas of life (23:18)

00:00 So that’s one of the big things that I’ve learned here in Hawaii so far as we’ve been traveling, is like, we’ve run into a lot of culture, and we’ve run into a lot of like, natives that just live on the Island, and a lot of the people have lived here their whole life. Right? And they basically stay on Hawaii their whole life. And so, the way that they do things is very different. The way that they live and the way that they act is very different. And, there’s just a much more like relaxed, laid back, type of feeling. And for me, like I sit here and I’m like, “Oh my gosh, I think I would go crazy here. How could anybody do this?” But then I started to realize, “Whoa, they don’t know any different.” Like this is how they grew up.

00:32 You‌ ‌are‌ ‌now‌ ‌entering‌ ‌a‌ ‌new‌ ‌paradigm.‌ ‌So, ‌here’s‌ ‌my‌ ‌issue.‌ ‌I‌ ‌wanted‌ ‌to‌ ‌find‌ ‌the‌ ‌ answers‌ ‌to‌ ‌life’s‌ ‌biggest‌ ‌questions.‌ ‌Things‌ ‌like,‌ ‌how‌ ‌do‌ ‌I‌ ‌become‌ ‌happy‌ ‌and‌ ‌live‌ ‌with‌ ‌purpose?‌ ‌ How‌ ‌do‌ ‌I‌ ‌make‌ ‌more‌ ‌money‌ ‌doing‌ ‌what‌ ‌I‌ ‌love,‌ ‌and‌ ‌what‌ ‌does‌ ‌it‌ ‌mean‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌truly‌ ‌successful‌ ‌in‌ ‌ all‌ ‌areas‌ ‌of‌ ‌life?‌ ‌My‌ ‌name‌ ‌is‌ ‌Josh‌ ‌Forti,‌ ‌@JoshForti‌ ‌on‌ Instagram,‌ ‌and‌ ‌I‌ ‌ask‌ ‌life’s‌ ‌biggest‌ ‌ questions‌ ‌and‌ ‌share‌ ‌the‌ ‌answers‌ ‌with‌ ‌you.‌ ‌My‌ ‌goal‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌help‌ ‌you‌ ‌find‌ ‌purpose,‌ happiness,‌ ‌and‌ ‌ open‌ ‌your‌ ‌mind‌ ‌to‌ ‌new‌ ‌realms‌ ‌of‌ ‌possibility‌ ‌by‌ ‌helping‌ ‌you‌ ‌think‌ ‌differently‌ ‌about‌ ‌everything‌ ‌you‌ do,‌ ‌know,‌ ‌and‌ ‌understand.‌ ‌On‌ ‌this‌ ‌podcast,‌ ‌we‌ ‌think‌ ‌different,‌ ‌we‌ ‌dream‌ ‌bigger,‌ ‌and‌ ‌we‌ ‌live‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌ world‌ ‌without‌ ‌limits.‌ ‌This‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌new‌ ‌paradigm.‌ ‌Welcome‌ ‌to‌ ‌The‌ ‌Think‌ ‌Different‌ ‌Theory.

01:20 What’s up guys. Welcome back to another episode of The‌ ‌Think‌ ‌Different‌ ‌Theory. My name is Josh Forti, and welcome back to the show from sunny, beautiful Hawaii. Oh my goodness gracious. I wish you were here. Seriously. Alright. Listen, I got to stop the show by saying something, okay? I have not been much of a traveler in my life and quite frankly, I’m still struggling, kind of getting used to the whole traveling thing here in… in Hawaii, and just in general, where we’ve been. I’m very much looking forward to getting back to a set schedule already, and we’re only a couple weeks into everything. However, that being said, some people I have seen posting and commenting on my Instagram photos and videos saying that, “Oh, like Hawaii is my dream vacation, or Hawaii is where I want to go.” And I’ve seen other people that are kind of like bashing Hawaii, like, “Aaah, Hawaii is not that great”, or whatever. Listen, you got to go to Hawaii, and you got to go to Kauai specifically, and go visit this place.

02:13 If it is your dream vacation, you are so like… you’re absolutely going to be freaking in love. Go to the south side of the island, by the way. Alright? Seriously. The South side is better. I mean, obviously if you can do the whole thing, do it. We’ve had a week here in this camper trailer, and but that, the North side, it’s like a little bit more like, I want to say retirement home places, but that are… there are some nicer retirement places that are… but just like more populated, a little bit more modern, a little bit more developed. Still beautiful beaches and beautiful things to do. We’re actually staying on the North side right now at a really awesome beach with hot showers while we’re staying there, but the South side is just absolutely beautiful. It’s absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous. And you got the Canyon down there, and you’ve got these lookouts, and we were at the look out today where we were literally in a cloud like in it to like we could see it going through and it was absolutely amazing and awesome.

02:57 So seriously, like if you have the ability to come to Hawaii, like do it. And, if you don’t think you like Hawaii, or you think Hawaii is overrated, the only thing that I would say is if you like beautiful scenery at all, come here. Alright? Now, if you’re not a traveler at all, or if you’re like, “Man, I never want to leave my home.” I get it. I’ve been that way, but seriously, I have been so freaking impressed with Hawaii and how beautifully gorgeous it is. It literally does not look real. I’ve learned so much. We’ve gotten to see so many cool places. We’ve gone kayaking, we’ve gotten drone shots, we’ve been on a waterfall. Seriously. I’m sure I’m repeating myself from some of the other episodes, but seriously, it’s absolutely amazing here and I’m very, very high excited. At the time this episode is coming out, I think we’ll probably be on our way to Australia or wherever the next stop of the trip will take us.

03:45 So I’m either that or we’ll be just leaving Maui hot mess master when this episode is actually going to drop. But seriously, I’m absolutely gorgeous. Absolutely breathtaking. And I’m so happy that we were able to spend time here and do what we did. And, and on that note, before I kind of get in today, today’s episode, um, about the topic of, uh, just thinking differently because that’s what we’re all about, but specifically the topic of perspective and seeing things differently than everybody else. I do want to touch on one thing, which is like, don’t be afraid to think outside the box and don’t be afraid to do things a little bit differently or a little outside the norm. Right? A lot of people told us like, Hey, when you’re in Hawaii, you’re gonna want to stay in like a nicer place.

04:22 You’re gonna want to stay in like a hotel. You’re gonna want to relax and things like that, which I think is true, but you know, like I gave myself permission just to kind of come out here with an open mind. And so what we ended up doing or deciding to do is that we decided to stay in like a pop up truck, a popper popup camper, and it’s literally a truck with a cab on the back that you pull up at anywhere, anywhere there’s a campsite or no where you can park and then a 10 just pops up on the top and then you just sleep in it. And it’s absolutely awesome. And what that has allowed us to do is just stay in some of the most cool and most Epic places you’ve ever seen in your entire life. Like literally on cliff overlooking the water and, and unsafe super Sandy beaches waking up to the sunrise.

04:59 So I wouldn’t have been able to do that and experienced those things if I would’ve listened to the advice of everybody else and like gone the luxury route. And I think that a lot of times we learn our best lessons in life. If you go out and like do things a little bit out of the norm and like think outside the box a little bit and not necessarily listen to everything. I’m not saying like break the rules but simply just go at life from a different approach and a different angle. And I’ve seen this several times in like the shops that stand out here down in Hawaii like I’ve noticed, I’m like Oh they stand out in their different, which is like they thought outside the box a little bit or they’ve approached it in their own unique way. I remember like success is 80% following other people, but there is that 20% of creativity to where like, you know, if you want to own a restaurant, like you’re still gonna do things the same way as like 80% 80% the same way as a lot of other restaurants are, right?

05:43 You’re still going to serve food and have servers and like do these different things. But like there is that 20% where you get to be creative and that applies to like all areas of life as well. Not just in business or not just in frameworks to follow in business like in life, like yeah, you have to have a place to stay and yes, like you should shower every now and then, right? But that doesn’t mean you have to stay in a hotel or an Airbnb. And that’s what we did and it was a super, super cool and fun experience and we’ve got to see some really, really cool things. If you want to check on more about what we’ve been able to do and, and see, go to @JoshFortiTravels on Instagram, @JoshFortiTravels and we have some really cool images and videos and stuff up there or go to ThinkDifferentTheory.com and go to our blog or my blog is up there now handout.

06:20 We’re doing daily recaps every single day of, uh, things that are going on there. So I’m super excited for that. So anyway, I want to get into today’s episode because I think it’s a really important one. I’m happy Monday, by the way. I believe this. When is dropping on a Monday. We have a really cool interview coming up this week with, um, let’s see who Arnie GHESKIO is this week. Alright. So we dropped it down to one interview a week. Um, now, so we’re doing two solo episodes, but Mondays and Fridays are solo episodes. And then Wednesdays are our interviews, uh, each and every week. And this week we have Arnie Guskey coming up, which is super exciting. Um, he actually, I got to interview him on the cruise ship and we actually got to sit down and have a face to face one. I did forget the adapter though again. So the audio is a little bit messed up, heads up.

07:03 But anyway. All right. So, um, anyway, I wanna I want to get to today’s topic, which is the topic of perspective and really like having a full perspective of, of the world, right? Part of the reason that I’m on this trip right now is to learn and search out truth in that, that that’s a really big one. I’ve already learned so much about this. In fact, at the time of recording this particular episode, it’s a Saturday evening. So tomorrow morning I’m actually getting up or going to a Hawaiian church here, which is super exciting. So we get to see the Hawaiian church culture and we get to see like what they believe and what the, how they worshiping, see if there’s anything different because I know there’s like a lot of Indian here and a lot of uh, sacred burial grounds and like a lot of spirituality things and a lot of religious stuff.

07:39 And so like seeking out that and because of that, like I’ve been able to have a widened perspective. Right. And it’s been really, really interesting to see how different people think, how different people act. And uh, on this trip, like I said, my goal is to expand my perspective and expand my understanding of truth and of knowledge and how things work. And I think when you do that, I think that you open up your mind to see so many different cool things and have a, a much greater understanding of the world. And, um, as you guys know, one of the things that I’m really big into and that I’ve kind of talked about a little bit here on the podcast before is I’m really big into like, social justice issues and, uh, American politics particularly like I love America. I’m a die hard fan of the United States and, um, I don’t think that that will ever, ever change absolutely love America.

08:24 However, um, with that I have specifically into like helping solve injustice and figuring out, you know, different political issues. Um, and I’m trying to separate, you know, policy from character when we come to Donald Trump and like all those different things. So I’m really interested in how people think and it’s part of the reason that I studies a psychology of humans so much is because when I can like understand how people think and how they work and what’s important to them, like it makes me not only a better marketer, but it makes me understand them better so that I can help and try to figure out the world’s problems. And that’s one of the things that I’m actually leading or not really focused trying to do is figure out how to help solve the problems in the world and make the world a better place. And I have a lot of things.

09:00 This is why I’m kind of on the strip right now as I’m figuring out where I want to be and what I want to do because entrepreneurship like is fun as an exciting as it is. Like it isn’t enough for me. Right. I think that there’s more to life than just making money. I think that, you know, helping with social issues and helping bring justice to places that need justice and really helped making the world a better place is absolutely critical and it’s something that I definitely want to be a part of and want to do. I’m walking down this road here down in Hawaii, so there’s noise all in the background. I apologize, but that’s what I want to do. That’s what I want to be focused on is really like having a better understanding of people so that I can help solve these problems and perspective and understanding how different people think and how different people work and what’s important to different people is so important.

09:40 And one of the things that I’ve noticed as I’ve sat back and really thought about things in the American society specifically, and I haven’t been around the whole world yet, so, you know, we’ll see what it comes to that when I get there. But, uh, one of the things that I noticed about the American society is, is that we, uh, we’d never take the time to really see the other person’s perspective and the other person’s side of things and really understand how much culture and how much one’s upbringing and how much someone’s building systems really affect them. Right? And so when you realize that, you know, I like to make bold statements a lot of times or broad statements that take a lot of us to do, like, Oh, I could never live that way, or how could you possibly ever believe blank, right? Like whatever that thing is, and we sit there and make these generalized statements without really ever looking into why it is that they think that way.

10:26 Right. I’m really big on, you know, Democrats versus Republicans, right? I think that it shouldn’t be Democrats versus Republicans. I mean, I’m fine to have two parties and whatnot in Morocco. We wanted into politics here, but like we should all be United behind America, right? But the problem is Republicans, Robbins attacking the Democrats and Democrats are always jacking with Republicans and, and this is true in all areas of life, not just in politics, but we never take the time to figure out, okay, why is it that somebody is a Democrat or why is it that somebody is a Republican? Is it the, you know, is it their political, I mean, is that their religious beliefs that it gave him that, is it where they grew up? Is it their parents? Like what is it that caused them to start believing that way? Because guess what, when we’re born, we have no idea what we believe.

11:07 We have no idea what it is that you know we’re going to grow up doing or thinking, right? We are completely clean slate. But every single time that something happens in our life, which happened in your thousands and thousands and thousands of times a day, we have these experiences and these experiences shape our belief systems and who we become and our identity and how we act and how we believe. And so if somebody grows up a certain way, seeing something their entire life, right? And then somebody else comes in and says, Oh no, this way is the right way and this other way is wrong. That person is obviously gonna fight back, no matter how dumb or stupid it may sound to the other person, if that’s all they grew up believing and understanding like then can you blame them? Right? And so that’s one of the big things that I’ve learned here in, uh, Hawaii so far as we’ve been traveling is like, we’ve run into a lot of culture and we’ve run into a lot of like natives that just live on the Island.

11:57 And a lot of the people have lived here their whole life, right? They’ve never left or if they have left, like they’ve only left a few times and they basically stay on Hawaii their whole life. And so the way that they do things is very different. The way that they live in the way that they act as very different. And there’s just a much more like relaxed, laid back type of feeling. And for me, like I sit here and I’m like, Oh my gosh, I think I would go crazy here, right? Like I would go crazy if I had to live in this environment for a longterm period of time. Like I need to be fast, ready to go, or whatever. Like how could anybody do this? But then I started to realize, Whoa, they don’t know any different. Like this is how they grew up.

12:32 And like, think about this, if you’ve lived on an Island your whole life, like truly an Island of Hawaii, like yes, maybe you’ve flown into America or, or flown to other places before. But if you’ve never lived in a big city, if you’ve never lived in New York or Chicago or Los Angeles or you’ve never experienced, you know, Amazon prime one day shipping, right? If you’ve never gone through and had any of those luxuries, these are all just stories to you. These are all just foreign concepts, right? And so for me, this fast paced world that I’m used to like go, go, go, constantly wanting to go bigger and go more and affect more people and constantly spending grow that’s so polar opposite to a lot of the way that these kids have grown up in a lot of these ways that, you know, these adults have grown up.

13:09 Like they don’t, they’re not used to that. Their whole life has been this more relaxed Island life where everything’s a whole lot more chill. It’s not suits and ties, it’s, you know, everything’s very different. And I started to notice that the way things are built reflect that, the way the culture operates reflects that. And there’s a lot of things that even in just this culture, like they reflect differences. And then the culture that I’m used to and I thought about that and I thought, okay, well I’m sure that applies to other areas of life as well and is starting to look into it. And this is stuff that I’ve already, you know, known and studied. But this is so true. Like the way we grow up and where we grow up is so IM like so much shapes who we become. And I was sitting out on this beach here in Hawaii, it was a call, it’s called poly Hill beach.

13:50 It’s one of if not the most gorgeous a beach in all of Hawaii. And it is just like when you go back there, it is a track, I mean let me tell you, it is three to four miles of going literally five miles an hour on your vehicle now. Like some made up hypothetical. Oh yeah. We only went five miles an hour, like literally five miles an hour or less because the potholes in the road is so bad and so bumpy you will break your car. And the reason I know that is because our truck literally broke down when we got back there because it was so rough. It, uh, like shook the starter right off of it and like an hour off the truck, but like it didn’t work anymore. And they had come out and like beat it with a hammer and, and like do all these repairs on it in order to get it to start again because the road was so rough.

14:30 But anyway, so we ended up getting stuck back there. But as we were stuck back and this beach, um, I was sitting there and it was about 10 o’clock at night and you can look up at the stars and you understand like there is absolutely no light there at all, right? There are no city lights, there are no other lights from other vehicles, there are no facilities, there’s no electricity, there’s nothing. And it’s just pitch black, pure darkness. And then you look up into the sky, right? And you see nothing but this just massive array of lights from the stars. And you can see the Milky way galaxy and full effect. And like you have this like just incredible perspective of the universe and how vast and how massive it is and how small we are. And I look at that perspective and, and I got to experience that in real life.

15:14 And then I look at someone that’s, you know, 12 years old, 15 years old, 25 years old that has grown up in it up poor or bad part of New York city or Chicago, their whole life in the bright lights that they’ve never been able to look up and just see this beautiful array of stars and understand the vastness of the Milky way galaxy, right? Like those are two very, very different perspectives of life. If I were to try to convince someone that there was truth, that that there was wisdom in this, this beautiful light SIS that I saw and I tried to convince someone from that small suburb that this was a real thing. Like they would look at that and be like, what are you talking about? Like, no, that’s not true. Like it’s like this whole totally polar opposite world because they would say, well, yeah, but that’s not really reality.

15:55 That’s not my reality, right? I’m going to believe in and hold true to my truth based on what I see here in Chicago or New York and they’re not going to be able to fathom how beautiful or the truth that I experienced in Hawaii or vice versa. And so I think perspective really goes and allows you to have a full, complete picture of the way things really are. And that’s one of the reasons, like I said that I’m going on this trip, is to really have a full, complete perspective of reality and what it all entails so that I can see how different people think and how different people believe and how different people act. And I think that the next time that we judged someone in the next time that you want to go out there and wonder like, well, why the heck does that person believe this?

16:32 How could they possibly think this way? You have to understand that there are things in their life that have gone on that have led them to believe that. And I talked about this in a previous episode, like understanding that perspective and understanding like there’s a reason the way people are that way, they all have a story like I talked about in a couple of episodes ago, right? Like you have to understand that and you have to realize like, okay, like if I can see things through their perspective, I’m going to have a greater understanding of how to help them. And that’s why I am so passionate about is really just helping people. And in order to do that I need to understand their perspective and I need to understand how to communicate to them. Well. And I would say that probably one of the biggest things that I have been focused on studying and learning here on this trip is how to communicate and the importance of communication.

17:19 And I would consider myself someone that is already a, a pretty good communicator. Like I communicate really well and I’m, I’m good in on camera and I’m, I’m good at telling stories. And you know, listening to people and, and figuring out what to say and how to, you know, portray things. But I’m only good where I know that I’m good at. I’m only good what I’ve been able to practice. But the more I go in, the more perspective I see, the more I better understand people the better I am able to communicate to them and show them my side of things. And that’s why I think the, in politics specifically but also in you know, religion and in life and in schooling and business. Like the next time you look at someone and you think, well, why the heck could they possibly think that way?

17:54 You know, I think my way is right. Or you know, if they just thought this way it would free them of whatever it is that they’re trying to do. Well guess what is because they had something that allowed them to uh, or had them grow up thinking that way or led them to think the way that they do now. And so I think that the next time that you are faced with that, seeing that other perspective is really, really important. So anyway, I know that’s kind of a little bit similar to the episode we did last Monday, but I want to continue putting these episodes out and kind of really sharing with you along the journey what I’m learning. And I think that perspective in communication right now has been a a very key moment or a very key thing with what it is that, uh, I’m learning right now is perspective and communication because, uh, there’s always, there’s always another perspective and there’s always a way to communicate.

18:38 Well, I firmly, truly believe that if we could all communicate better, that we would be able to solve a lot of the world’s problems. Not because that talking is the way to get things done because action is the only way to get things done. But simply by communicating well and understanding people better and being able to give better, more detailed instructions or having a full, better picture of something allows us to do a better job and move forward as a society as a whole. And so I think communication is probably one of the biggest things that we are lacking in society, which is ironic, right? Because we have so much communication, we have instantaneous communication. And I think that anytime that there is a overflow of something and it’s in excess, is when we, it really loses its value on, it really loses its meaning, right?

19:21 If you have perspective all the time, if you can go, if you could tell it for anywhere instantaneously all over the world at any point, guess what? That would lose its inherent value and the specialness of being able to go someplace would lose value simply because you’re able to do it at any given time. Right. The same thing has happened with communication because now we can do that with communication. We can talk to anyone at any time of the day, anywhere in the world, instantaneously through 25 different platforms. Right? We can text them, we can call them, we can FaceTime them, we can Skype them, we can Facebook message them, we can Instagram, Snapchat. I’m like, you know, there’s so many different ways to communicate with people all over the world and since, since there’s so much communication going on, but we’re all trying to be active on all of them and are trying to take an action everywhere because we’re putting out so much.

20:05 We forget to focus on the quality of it and we just shorten things up and we’re short with people and we’re trying to put all these different things out there to just to stay relevant when in reality that’s actually hurting our ability to communicate because words then lose their meaning. And so one of the things that I think is really important is yes, like putting out content, yes, being intentional, but really being intentional with your communication and what you’re saying and making sure that you’re saying it in the best way possible in a way that people can understand in a way that’s going to help further a cause and a message. And no one has time to be quiet and no one has time to talk. And what it is your time to talk when it is your time to communicate, do it in the best possible way that’s going to help as many people as possible.

20:43 And that could be in your personal life, that can be in your business. And I believe that we are called to have a voice. So I believe you are called to communicate. I believe each and every person, uh, has a, a, an actual like, um, a responsibility with inside of them to communicate to the world what it is that they know and what it is that they’re good at in their specialty. Now that’s all done in different ways of course, but like God gave us those things for a reason and we have our skill sets for a reason. I think that’s very, very important to really, um, take advantage of. And like we can really do a lot of good when we know how to communicate well. And one of the things that I’m really passionate about is understanding communication better. And that comes through having a greater perspective of, of people’s lives and how people grew up and how people are thinking.

21:26 And so the reason I’m sharing this with you, like I said, I know it’s a little bit repetitive, but I’m sharing this with you because this is where my head’s at right now and I’m in this phase right now of like perspective, perspective, perspective and communicating better and, and like better understanding people because that’s what’s ultimately going to allow me to go out there and change the world and make a difference in the world, um, is if I can better understand that. And so that’s what this movement is all about. And, um, you know, is going out there and changing the world and making it a better place. So, okay, well, uh, that’s all I’ve got for you this episode. I know these last couple episodes have been, I don’t wanna know all over the place is the right word, but like just a lot of my thoughts just kind of dumped into these things and I appreciate you guys taking the time to just listen to these and go through them.

22:03 I promise you that they’re not going to be like this forever because I do know that they’re not as professional, astounding as they normally are. Hub. You know, normally we have a much better Mike than this, but um, this is just really real and raw me and if you’re listening right now, like, seriously, I want to take the time to just say thank you and like that. I appreciate you because, um, you, I know you don’t have to be listening right now and right now, like if you allow me to just get vulnerable here for a second, like, like I’m, I’m going through this change, but like I’m really getting excited for the future because it’s becoming more and more clear what I need to do and I’m, I’m really close to getting there. I’m really close to figuring it out and I’ve been praying a lot and I’m in seeking a lot.

22:39 I’ve been searching a lot, but I’m, I’m really getting a much more clear understanding of like where it is that I’m supposed to be, how it is that I’m supposed to be communicating what I’m as I’m supposed to be creating. And right now I’m going through this phase of figuring out all out and I know that this message is going to change the world. I know that we’re going to be big. I know that think different theory and the, the, the free thinkers that we are going to be able to go out there and change the world. Um, and right now it’s kind of like my time of figuring it all out and um, you know, I’m being really hard on myself right now in a good way. Like I’m really pushing myself. Um, you know, on Monday we’re starting like a whole new diet plan and trying to figure out how to have the highest amount of energy possible and, and really understand health better.

23:18 Like I’m really going all out to have a, a really better understanding of what it means to be successful in all areas of life and I can’t where to wait to share this with you. Um, and my commitment to you is just continue to put out content to continue to put out episodes and uh, I approached appreciate all the downloads. I appreciate all the feedback and all the love that you guys have been sharing and uh, you know, how much you guys have supported. It means the world to me. So better episodes coming out, I’ll say better because these are good ones. Stupid, better quality episodes coming again soon. More interviews coming as well. We got some pretty cool ones lined up that we’re working on actually and we’re going get some really cool content in here. And um, one of the things that I’m toying around with, I don’t know if I should say this or not, but I’m going to kind of tease you with it, is we’re kind of toying around with the idea of doing the video content a little bit differently for YouTube, I’m sending over content to the editor has been a problem so far just with the internet connection that we have.

24:10 And one of the things that I’ve been really focused on is quality over quantity. And I think that with all the different footages and stuff that we have that we can make some really powerful more long form videos. And so we might be doing that as well. I’m still just trying to figure it all out. And like I said, like right now it’s just, it’s just a time of discovery in my life and figuring out exactly what it is that I’m doing and big, big things are coming. So thank you so much for listening. I appreciate you guys. If you could do me a huge favor, if you could just share this episode or your favorite episode of the podcast with a friend. Um, right now I’m traveling so I’m not putting as much time and effort into actually growing the podcast and getting new listeners as I would like to, um, just because everything’s been busy.

24:47 So if you could just simply share the podcast with one one friend, every time you listened to an episode, you’d be like, Hey, I thought you might like this podcast. Go check it out. That really helps us grow a lot. And I’m like, you might be sitting there thinking, Oh, somebody else might do it. Well, yeah, somebody else might do it, but you should do it as well. And, um, you know, if you’d be willing to do that, that would mean the world to me. And um, it just, it, it just means so much and like know that I do this all with a passion debt to help others, to help change the world, to help people better their lives. And if you would be, you know, feel that this could help someone, share it out with them and that would mean the world to me myself. All right guys, that’s all I’ve got for you as always, hustle, hustle, God bless you. Do not be afraid to think different because those of us that think different are going to be the ones that changed the world. I mean that we are free thinkers, we do it different, we think different and we live in a different way than anybody else can. I love you all and I will see you on the next episode. Take it easy fam. Peace.
