WHAT IS THIS EPISODE ABOUT?
In this episode, I’m going to talk about how I struggle with purpose, finding happiness, and finding exactly what I’m supposed to be doing to accomplish my “Why”. I’ve been making good money and building my business to the point that it’s becoming bigger in terms of revenue and all, but I can’t help but wonder whether it will get me where I want to be.
WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?
That lack of clarity causes someone to have so much confusion about everything, and I hope that sharing with you what I’ve been trying to do to figure things out will help you on your own journey to fulfillment and happiness.
Here are the key topics discussed in this episode:
- The experience that got me thinking (01:16)
- Finding purpose, happiness, and clarity (04:03)
- My why and why it’s important to have one (08:05)
- The role that faith plays in trying to figure things out (12:55)
- Believing in the absolute truth in the universe (16:12)
- It all has to happen in steps and increments (21:02)

00:00 I struggle with purpose and finding happiness, and finding what I’m supposed to be doing to accomplish my “Why”, because I have a clear “Why”, but like, figuring out what the next steps are, and you know like, making a bunch of money in business, is that like, gonna get me to where I want to be, and just all sorts of those types of questions, and lacking that clarity. And I can’t promise you that you’re going to find the answers to all of that on this episode, because you’re not, but I want to share with you what I’m doing to try to figure this whole thing out because I think a lot of people struggle with that. And I know I do.
00:31 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.
01:16 What’s up guys? Welcome back to another episode of The Think Different Theory. My name is Josh Forti and we are on episode number 54. Welcome back to the program. It’s been an interesting week for me this week actually. Starting… Let’s see, last Friday, I went and I flew in… Actually went home, and I surprised my best friend with a surprise birthday party. And it was funny, because he had no idea it was coming, and so there was like, his girlfriend had planned out like an entire birthday surprise, and his birthday’s actually coming up this week, but we had planned it all for Saturday, and he had no idea. And so, I flew in, and I made up some excuse, because since I travel a lot. I said I was there for work, and I got in Friday night and said hi to him. And, in order to kind of cover up the fact that there was a party going on on Saturday, I told him that I had to leave at the time the party was starting, and then I needed to be at the airport the next day.
02:11 And so, anyway, we went and… So I get there, and they’re kind of like… like my best friend… He’s a little younger than I am, and so, they stay up pretty late there. Right? And so, he finds out that this is the case, that I’m there just for like 12 hours, or 15 hours, or whatever it was, essentially. And he goes, “Dude, like, we got to maximize this. I’m like so happy you came and hung out.” I told him I was there just to surprise them for… I told him I was there just for his birthday, cause I wasn’t gonna make it, and he was my best friend. I told him I just wanted to hang out. And, so he’s like, “Dude, we gotta stay up all night”, and we got to, you know, do a bunch of cool stuff, and yada yada yada.
02:45 So, we ended up staying up till like, I don’t know, it was like eight o’clock in the morning. And so, I am like dead tired. He goes to sleep, I go to sleep, and I wake up like an hour later. And so, by now, he’s like super, super asleep. So, we go and we start like, cleaning the whole house, and like we’re getting prepared for the party, and then I wake him up, and it was my job to keep him out of the house while they cooked all the food, and you know, set up the party, and yada yada yada, what have you. Right? And so, I ended up doing that, and I was on like two hours of sleep, or like less than… Like an hour and a half asleep. I took him out and we went to, you know, got food and hung out, and did whatever, and then I needed an excuse for keeping him out longer.
03:26 So I was like, “Dude, let’s go gun shopping.” Right? “I Kinda wanna get a handgun”, yada, yada, you know, and… you know, let’s go shopping. So, we ended up going shopping for guns in the store or whatever and kinda checked out some different things. So super, super cool. We had lots of fun. So we get back. The party was a complete success. Totally surprised, and it was awesome. We hung out and I got to be there for him for his birthday, and it was awesome, but I was exhausted over the weekend, and so I kinda got, I don’t want to say a rough start to the week, but I was kind of tired and a little bit checked out of the work mode for everything, which was just made for an interesting week so far, as though we were going in and doing everything.
04:03 But anyway, that being said, it was fun, it was awesome. But it got me thinking… I was doing a lot of thinking when I’m there and I always love hanging out with him, because we live such drastically different lives, like just so, so different. And, he’s in the middle of a job transition right now. And, so we got to talk about that and we got to talk about the future, and purpose, and happiness, and all that type of fun stuff. So, that kinda leads me to today’s episode topic, which is about purpose, and finding happiness, and clarity, and the next steps in the vehicle. And, you know, as I kind of sat down, and I was sitting on my porch, it is beautiful out here today. I was sitting on my porch, and I was kind of thinking about what to talk about on the podcast, and what these next episodes were going to entail.
04:47 And one of the things that just kind of hit me was, I’m like, “What do I want to do with my life?” And that might sound crazy for some people that know me. Right? Like I’ve always been the person that’s just been going and doing, and I just get things done. I don’t stop to think twice about something. I just decide what I want. I go do, but I’m 25 now, and I’m kind of at this point in my life where I’m like, figuring out life. And what I mean by that is, my whole life up until this point, has been 100% business focused. It has been how to build businesses, learn about marketing, learn about social media, make more money, you know what I mean? Like, just have success in the business sense. And, I haven’t really thought about life, because I just always knew my life was business.
05:37 And, I will say ever since my brother died, gosh, it’s been six weeks now, I think. Gosh, it’s so crazy. So, yeah, six weeks now it has been since this whole, you know, that whole tragedy went down. It really kind of reshaped my life and it really played a huge impact on me, as I kind of sat back and I thought, “Alright, like, what I want my actual life to look like. I’ve got to have a relationship with my family, and I’ve got to have, you know, my relationship with my friends. I can’t just be business obsessed this whole time.” And, I had a whole… Like, I basically had to completely re-figure out life since that point. And it’s been interesting, because I’m like, “Alright, I’m in a relationship now, and you know, I guess I do want to get married, and I guess I want kids maybe. I think so”, but you know, like kids to me.
06:25 My brother played a huge role in that because he had a son. He’s got a kid on the way, or had a kid on the way before he passed, and, was very, very involved in like, kids and the local community, and just all sorts of things like that. He was very influential in the Denver community, and it got me thinking about like, my impact and my life so far has really all been online. It’s all been through virtual relationships, and there hasn’t been a lot of, like in person time with lots of people consistently. It’s been different types of people, and whatnot. And I watched the impact that he had, and I started kind of studying, and really, like learning a little bit more about creating lasting, real impact, like generational impact, and really leaving a legacy behind, but more importantly, living a life that has purpose, and living a life that, you know, that I can be proud of, and living a life that would bring glory and honor to God, and to, you know, my family and to the people around me.
07:22 And so, I’ve really just had to go through and figure this whole thing out. And so like, I’ve kinda taken a step back and gone, “Okay, you know, I think I want to be more involved in like maybe local communities. I think I want to be more involved in like, kids’ lives”, because like when people are young and impressionable, between those ages of, you know, like five and 12 years old, they learn so much. And then between the ages of 12 and 18 years old, so many of their habits, and their things are formed that’s going to shape the rest of their life. So I started like, thinking about all this stuff, and it was quite fascinating. And so, for me, like one of the things that I have known for as long as I can remember since I started into this entrepreneurship journey, is my why. Right?
08:05 And I talk about the importance of having a why, and moving forward, and how a lot of things can change around that, but like, having your why is so important. And so, you know, for me, my Why is to inspire people to, you know, break free and know truth, and you know, create their own reality so that they fall in love with life, and make the world a better place. And it’s all about creating an impact that makes the world a better place, and empowering people to have personal responsibility to… So that they can go out and do that for themselves as well, and you know, create and design the life of their dreams, and do what they love to do on a daily basis. But now, you know, I’ve started thinking, I’m like, “Well, that’s my why, but like, where do I find fulfillment? How do I make that happen?”
08:47 And, you know, I’m good around people. I like being around people to a certain extent. I really thrive when I’m teaching and when I’m growing, but like, what about purpose? What about… Like what is my purpose for being here, and me as a Christian, and as someone that believes in God, that that means one thing, and then I thought like, “Okay, but what about the vehicle that I’m going to use to get there?” Right? Like my, you know, overarching why is that, but like, you’ve got to find a way to do that. Is that through education, is that through, you know, building a business in social media? Is that through building a business through whatever. Car selling, through selling paper, like whatever that thing is, that vehicle that you’re using to get to that point. And so, as I’ve sat back and really thought about this, I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve felt kind of lost.
09:33 And, at this point in my life where like, I’m like, “Man, I don’t… I don’t know what the next steps are.” You know, I have a clear goal in my business. Right? I’m very, very confident, like if someone comes to me, he’s like, “Josh, I want to learn sales. I want to learn all about social media”, but… I can crush that. Right? That’s… There are no questions there, and you know, we’re cranking in the business, and we’re doing really well there, and things are starting to scale up, and we’re getting our name known more, and really having a lot of impact in things there, but there’s the business side of things, and then there’s kind of like more of the impact, and the social side of things. And…. And yes, they do go hand in hand in a lot of ways, but it’s also very important to be intentional, I believe, about those things.
10:18 And so I’ve struggled with that. And because, I believe that the greatest gift, or the greatest investment that one can leave behind them when they die, is through children. I actually believe that. I believe that’s a biblical principle. And I believe that like, if you dedicate your life to just raising, you know, really awesome kids, that that isn’t an amazing legacy that you can leave behind. Now, that’s not to say that building a business, or a charity, or yada, yada, yada, or what have you, isn’t. Those are incredible accomplishments. And I plan to do those things, but I also understand the importance that children, and that the next generation plays on our society, and how much of a legacy can be carried on through having kids. Right? And through doing that stuff. And, I know you’re probably like, “Whoa, Josh. This is crazy.” Right?
11:11 But I’ve put a lot of thought into this, because my whole life I’ve always thought, “Yes, I want kids. No, I don’t want them now.” I don’t… Like, I don’t want… Like I got dreams. Right? I’ve got goals. I want to travel the world, I want to build a multi-million dollar business. I want to go out and do all these different things. And, I’ve always understood that having children, and being in a committed relationship, and raising them is so much of a sacrifice. Like, you give up so much of your own personal freedom, your entire life changes, and I’ve watched, not only from my parents, and their friends, and other people with kids, but I’ve watched it with my own friends, that are now getting married, that are now having kids. I have watched their whole lives, their whole businesses, their whole goals, and dreams, change around kids.
12:07 And I’m not saying that like, you can not have any other goals and dreams, or accomplish great things if you have kids, like quite probably, quite vice versa, but the other… or quite the opposite. But the other aspect of that is like, that’s time. You can’t be selfish anymore. Right? Like, you’ve got to go and give back. And so, you know, thinking about that, and thinking about the legacy that I want to give and leave behind, you know, it’s all… it’s all very confusing to me. And I… I sit there and I go, “Well, what… what do I do? Like, I’m in sales, I love sales, I love social media. I think I want to have a huge company. I think I want to go out and make millions of dollars, and I think I want to host events, and I think I want to be famous”, but also like there’s a big sacrifice that goes into that.
12:55 And then there’s also a big sacrifice that goes into, you know, a family, and relationships, and things of that nature. And I just was like, “Meh, I don’t know.” And I honestly, I don’t have the answers. And so, one of the things recently that I have done to kind of help me figure that out, is… And actually, let me kind of back up. For those of you that don’t know, or that… you know, maybe are newer here. I’m very… I’m a very strong believer in God. I consider myself a Christian, but more accurately than just the typical like, “Oh, Christian faith, God, Yay!” I actually genuinely believe that I have a relationship with God, and I believe that my purpose in a very broad sense of the word, is to just glorify God with my actions in life. Like, I actually believe that and I think that I have seen that come through in many, many areas of my life, and that drives so many of my decisions.
13:48 And so for me, I’ve always had a mentor of some sort in business, whether that was a free mentor that I just followed on YouTube, or Instagram, or email list, or whether that was an actually paid mentorship where I paid five thousand, ten thousand, thirty thousand dollars, at a time to be a part of. Like, I’ve always had that mentorship type of person in my life, to really guide me forward, and give me advice in business specifically. And so, since I’ve traveled so much, and since I’ve grown, you know, grown up, I have not had a mentor as much, in my faith, and for just like life. Like, I want to call it a life coach, because there’s a lot of things wrong with those people, I think, I mean, not all life coaches or bad, I think some of them do really well, but just truly like a mentor in my faith and in life.
14:38 And so, one of the things that I’ve done recently, is I have joined a men’s group with my church, where we just meet, we meet on Wednesday nights, and we just sit down and… you know, we do some worship stuff, but we really dive what the Bible has to say about life, and also just like, finding purpose in life, and finding what it means to be a man, to be a leader, to go out there and have a lasting impact in that sense. It’s been fascinating, and you know, it’s the one thing in my life, where I do have mentorship or guidance from someone else, that has nothing to do with business. And, quite frankly, I’m going to be honest with you. I have never been more excited about something when it comes to that in my life. I don’t think I’ve ever been more, like felt better about something when I’m there.
15:22 I’m very much at peace when I’m there, and I find a lot of clarity when I’m there, and you know, I feel really good about those things, but I still haven’t figured out life yet. And so, you know, for those of you that are out there struggling, I would say, for me, I had to go and identify ultimately what drives me, and ultimately how I base my decisions. And so, one of the things, and this is kind of like me going into teaching mode, cause I’m not really trying to teach on this podcast episode so much, trying to share with you what I have done, but one of the things that really, really has helped me. And, I think will really help a lot of people, especially, you know, if you’re listening to this right now, is you’ve got to figure out your… Like, what you base truth off of. And, you’ve got to figure out, like what you believe to be an absolute truth.
16:12 And I believe that there’s absolute truth in the universe, and not everybody believes that, you know, maybe you’re thinking that there is absolute truth for you, or it’s relative truth, or whatever, but for you personally, there’s got to be a guide, or a landmark, or something out there that actually like, that helps you make decisions and that you make decisions off of, not just like, “Oh”, just your gut or just this whatever. Like, what’s that thing? And for me, that is the Bible, and that is God. That is what I believe to be the ultimate truth, and while I believe that there’s a lot of, like God speaks to different people differently, and why some things might be okay for one person, they might not be okay for another. I believe those things exist, but for me, it’s like, “Okay, that is what I base my truth off of. That is what I base, what I believe off of, and how I am going to make life decisions.”
16:57 And so for me, I sat down and I looked at that, and I went, “Okay, if that is what I claim to be my truth, if I believe that, then I’ve really got to go start studying and figuring out exactly what that says about my life, and about like what I’m supposed to do, and how I’m supposed to live.” And so, I’ve been on this journey of figuring out what it means to live a fulfilled life, and what it means to actually have a lasting impact, and where I am supposed to go and put my time. I’ve always been money driven. Like, it doesn’t make sense to me if I can’t get a positive ROI out of it, not because I am money driven, and this is a very key point.
17:43 I just contradicted myself, not because I’m money driven. Like, I’ve always been driven by money but… and here’s why. And this is very important to understand. For me, I look at something and I go, “If it is costing me money, or whoever money, and it is not making money back. It is not sustainable by itself.” Like, there’s gotta be something else there, that funds it, and if that’s the case, then whatever that thing is, is always subject to whatever is funding it. So for example, a charity organization. I think charity is great, but there’s a huge problem with charity. I think that charity is essentially indebted to their donors. Right? And so, essentially what their donors say goes, because if they don’t do that, then they’re going to pull, then they’re going to go run out of money, and not sustain. So in my own life, and in my head, I’m like, “Yeah, charity work sounds great, and fulfillment work sounds great and helping other people sounds great, but I’ve got to do it in such a way to where it is making money, and it is self… you know, self-funding itself, and self-running, so that it’s not dependent on someone else.”
18:43 And so for me, this is a whole new avenue of figuring out, and investing time, and effort into things that I don’t know how I’m going to get a money ROI off of. I have no idea how I’m gonna get a money ROI off my faith. And, I’m sure that… you know, God will provide, and that, you know, everything’s going to work itself out, but I always have a plan going into something. And if it’s not there, I go, “Well, then it’s not worth my time if I can’t see how I’m going to profit from it eventually.” But I have found that my life has been better than… my mindset has been even better, and I’ve been at a lot of peace with life, since I’ve started to do that. But I still have a lot of questions. And so I… I always come back to… and I think the thing that’s fascinating, is me always coming back to… what I believe to be truth, what I believe to be the right way to live life.
19:32 And, once you have that direction, now you know what to base your decisions off of. And, let’s just say for the sake of the argument that you’re not a Christian, that you don’t believe in that there’s a God. You’ve got to ultimately determine, what is that thing that you base truth off of. What is the thing that you say, “This is how I make decisions”, so that you can ultimately go back to that and say, “This is what I’m going to do. This is how I determined that I’m going to go down this road. This is how I’m going to determine where I’m going to put my career efforts, where I’m gonna put my charity efforts, whether or not I’m going to get married, whether or not I should have kids, whether or not I should go, and travel are not”, like, all those different things.
20:15 And so for me right now, I look at it and I go, “Yup, I think I want a relationship, and I want to have kids someday.” I do. I think so. And I believe that that’s a biblical thing. I also know that I want to have success in business. I also know that I would… you know, I think I would like to have… and I’ve always wanted to have like, fame, to a certain extent, impact, and people to really know my name. I’m very driven by mastery, and people knowing that I’ve done a good job on things, and… that means a lot to me. And so, I look at that and I go, “Okay, what do I chase? What do I do now? I can’t do it all.” Right? Like, it’s impossible. I can’t travel the world, and build a multi-million dollar business, and have kids, and… you know, be involved massively in charity work, and still have time for personal development, and self… like at a rapid level.
21:02 I can’t do it all at the same time. It has to come in steps, it has to come in increments. And, so I question these things, and I sit down and I go, “How do I… Like, how do I determine this?” And so, for me, what I’ve done is ultimately finding that truth point, and what I believe to be true, and really studying that. For me, that’s the Bible. And so I’ve been diving into that a lot more, and having… you know, the Bible studies on Wednesday nights, and, been meeting with a really cool guy named Chad, and then also a pastor Bryan. And, it’s been awesome. And so, I want to encourage you, if you’re lost right now. Like you’re not going to find clarity, unless you establish what truth is. Unless you would establish the… the way or the map upon which you want to live life.
21:42 And, I see a lot of people wandering. And I wondered for a long time. Still wandering to some extent, but not having that clarity because I didn’t ultimately, first define what I believe to be the truth, and then, more importantly, go and actually seek that out. Even if I was wrong, even if you were wrong, at least going down that road, and figuring that out, I think is very, very important. And so, and that’s for me what I’ve been doing, as I’ve been sitting here going, “Okay, I’m good at sales.” It’s no question. And, I plan on being in sales for a long time. I plan on being in social media sales, and what I’m doing now, probably for the rest of my life, quite honestly. But there are so many different ways to do that. There are sales funnels, and there are courses, and there’s… you know, growing a $10 million business, or $100 million business, or $1 billion businesses.
22:28 If your goal is to do one or the other. Like, you’ve got to take different steps, and you’ve got to put your focus in different places. And if, you know, my goal is like, have kids now, then that’s going to be a huge sacrifice in my business, which I’m not planning on having kids now. Just to clarify. On the… you know, the flip side of that, like, alright, how do you set up for those things down the road? And it’s just been a very interesting point in my life as I’ve been going through all those things, and having a real meaningful impact is something that I’ve really questioned, because from a lot of my successful friends, monetarily successful, and a lot of the people that I follow, like Sam Ovens, I’ve gotten arguments from that say, “Listen. If you focus on business, and you focus on making a ton of money, and you focus on making a great customer experience with a great product or service, you’re going to have an amazing amount of impact.”
23:22 And if you just get laser-focused on that, you’re going to achieve all your goals and dreams. Don’t focus on charity work. Don’t focus on this. Don’t focus on that. Like, that’ll come later. yada, yada, yada. And I’ve struggled with that because I don’t know if I actually believe that. I don’t know if not being involved in other things outside of work is necessarily the right move. And so, that’s one of the things that I’m studying, and you know, trying to figure out now, and I’m really excited to share, you know, what I find with you guys because I don’t know what I’m gonna find. I don’t have the answers, and I’m really trying to… you know, figure that out and… and struggle with that, because there are so many options out there, and I see so many people that are my age.
24:00 And, you know, for those of you listening, maybe you’re 20, 25, 28, whatever that age group that you’re in, or even older than that, like, where we have different options. I want to travel, want to want to build a business, I want to be famous. I want to sit around and play video games all day. None of those things are inherently wrong. It’s not bad to go do any of those things. It’s not bad to go do all of those things, but for me, I’m like, “Which one of those things is going to bring me fulfillment? Which one of those things is going to make me feel good and happy? Which one of those things is going to be the route that I need to go down, to live the best possible life that I can, to help the most amount of people that I can, and yet still be able to give myself time to learn, and grow, and develop, and try other things, and build relationships, and spend time with family, and with people that are important to me in life.”
24:57 So as I go down this route of figuring that all… you know, all of these things out, I would love to… you know, I’d love to share those things with you, and that’s what I’m going to continue to do. And, you know, if you have questions about this, whether it’s about faith, or about purpose, or about happiness, and you want me to study them, I’m like, I would love to… to find specific answers for you. So, hit me up on Instagram @JoshForti, and shoot me a DM. I would love… I actually genuinely would love to hear your thoughts on this, about the purpose and whether or not you’re a person of faith or not, even if the DM is something as simple as like, “Josh, you know, I totally agree with you. I love what you’re doing. You know, I’m a Christian too, or I’m a man of faith, or a woman of faith too, you know, keep up the good work.” Great. Or something as simple as, “Josh, I disagree with you. I don’t think that faith is a real thing. I don’t think that… you know, there’s a God out there. And, here’s how I make decisions, or here’s what I’m trying to do to figure out how I make decisions. I’d love to hear back from you, or if you have specific questions on… you know, “Hey Josh, what do you think about yada, yada, yada?” I can go study that there as well. So hit me up on Instagram. I’d love to hear back from you on that, but that’s just where I’m at. Finding that ultimate truth, and how I make decisions. For me, it’s the Bible, and okay, so what does the Bible, and what does God say about business?
26:13 What does it say about relationships, about kids, about life, about traveling, about pleasure, about… you know, discipline, about how to live a happy, fulfilled life? Because, quite frankly, I don’t think it matters if you’re rich or poor. You can be happy in either scenario. You can be happy making $20,000 a year and fulfilled life. You can be happy living completely off of donations. You can be happy making a million bucks a year. You can be happy and fulfilled making a billion dollars a year. I truly genuinely believe that, but on the flip side, you can also be any of those things, and not be happy. And, happiness, fulfillment, purpose, and your life calling, I don’t think has anything to do with the amount of money you make at all. I think it has so much more to do with your intentions behind it, your purpose behind it, and you know, where you choose to put your focus.
27:02 And I’m just trying to figure out the balance of all that, especially because I do really want to be involved, and make meaningful, meaningful connections. It’s one thing to have an audience on Instagram, an audience on podcasting, and an audience on Facebook, whatever, what have you. It’s an entirely different thing to have a real meaningful connection, and in person with a lot of people, and leaving a legacy behind, in person, in real life, on your local community. Not that necessarily one is better than the other, but they are very different things and they… they do have very different impacts on that. And so, that’s where I’m at, and I’m trying to figure the whole thing out. And, I hope this… hope maybe this gave you some peace, about maybe where you’re at in your life, or if you can relate to this, let me know, because you know, it’s definitely where I’m at right now, and trying to figure everything out.
27:49 So, that’s what I’ve got for ya. And that’s… that’s today’s podcast episode. I hope it helped, and we’re going to go down this journey together, and it’s gonna be super, super fun. So, that’s that. Alright guys. As always, hustle, hustle, God bless. Do not be afraid to think different, because those of us that think different are going to be the ones that change the world. And on that, real quick, before I wrap up. Stop… or this is something that I’ve encouraged myself to do. Stop trying to figure out how everyone else says to live life, how everyone else says to think, and focusing on what everyone else is doing, and start just figuring out how you should live life, and where you should put your focus, because it’s crazy to me, but I’ve learned this so heavily.
28:38 The large majority of people are actually wrong on a lot of things. Most people have most of life wrong. And, just because it’s normal for society, that does not mean that you have to be a part of it, or that you have to partake in it. You have to go find out your truth, and figure out what you believe, and go live your life based off of that. Alright? Alright guys. I love you all. I look forward to seeing your messages on Instagram. Feel free… also, if you’re listening to that. I absolutely love re-sharing stories when you guys are listening to the podcast, so that’s awesome. So like, screenshotting this, posting it on Facebook, tagging me in an Instagram story. I love re-sharing those and engaging with you guys. That’s awesome. Alright guys, I love you all, and I will see you on the next podcast episode. Take it easy fam. Peace.
29:25 Yo, what’s up guys? You’ve been listening to The Think Different Theory with myself, Josh Forti, which I like to call, “A new paradigm of thinking”, and real quick, I got a question for you. Did you like this episode? If you did, I want to ask a huge favor. See, the biggest thing that helps this podcast grow, and that will spread this message of positivity and making the world a better place, is if you leave a review, a rating and subscribe to the podcast. What that does is, it basically tells the platforms that this is out on, that you like my stuff, and that I’m doing something right. So if you could take like three seconds out of your day and subscribe, leave a rating, and a review, I would be forever grateful for you. Also, I want to hear from you.
