00:34
hair on top of that and like it just

keeps getting thicker and thicker it’s
00:38
like as my hair keeps growing look Matt
00:40
the size of my head actually looks
00:42
bigger the point where like it gets hard
00:44
and I’ve got a thick neck from wrestling
00:46
but it gets hard to hold me up there huh
00:48
not just kidding I remember he has all
00:51
seen so I married an axe murderer one of
00:53
my favorite shows ever but there’s like
00:55
that little kid with a huge Olaf road he
00:57
keeps watching TV to keep stood up in
00:58
front of them Mike Myers playing his dad
01:00
like for the TV news like he’s like
01:03
yelling at his head he’s like it’s like
01:06
an orange on a toothpick and anyway I
01:08
always thought that that was funny so I
01:09
feel like that today if like my head is
01:11
like an orange on a toothpick so I’m
01:12
gonna go go and get it chopped down to
01:15
normal size which would be which would
01:17
be super cool so then I’ll be able to
01:19
function better it’s interesting like
01:21
I’m gonna tell you guys all my personal
01:23
drama is a little kid growing up but
01:25
when I was a kid growing up and ever my
01:26
family’s got really thick hair actually
01:29
my brother Scott who edits these audios
01:31
he’ll probably hear this he’s got the
01:32
thickest hair of my family just insane i
01:35
remember i could we stood to drive down
01:36
the street and he like stick his head
01:38
out the window di going crazy he’s like
01:40
check out my hair guys and pull back in
01:41
a big funk and we just sit there like
01:43
this big like a shell and yes this is
01:46
the thickest mines right behind i could
01:47
just lift thick hair right and and so
01:50
growing up like I was embarrassed clay I
01:51
don’t know how to comb my hair and never
01:53
combed it was always just big helmet on
01:54
my head i’m peering my parents knew how
01:56
to like style it so I was like
01:58
self-conscious my whole life super
02:00
embarrassing whole life growing up and
02:01
then come junior high and like people
02:03
you know my first couple days in your
02:04
high someone’s like
02:05
how come you don’t comb your hair and
02:07
I’m just like knows a junior high kid
02:09
devastated embarrassed and scared and
02:10
all these things wrapped into one and so
02:12
I start combing my hair but it’s not
02:14
like it’s not like me getting a comb and
02:16
combing it like it was trauma I’d have
02:18
to wake up two hours earlier and then
02:21
going the right they put gel in my hair
02:22
cuz I my hair so thick you can’t part of
02:24
that I got it you know I’m mountain full
02:26
jealous but I was gelling it and I’d
02:27
like you know part my hair and almost
02:30
looked horrible and like make a little
02:31
cool wave in the front and I would blow
02:33
dry it till it get hard as a rock cuz
02:35
all the jelly beans writing was like
02:37
harden and crunch and I get the big ol
02:39
like girl brush and I break it out and
02:41
it would break them to stay in like with
02:42
the part oh but I always hated it looks
02:45
so horrible but I go to school like
02:46
after two hours every day of trying to
02:48
my hair so look normal and I was just
02:50
like and if someone like bump me my
02:52
whole life my turkey tail in the back
02:54
would pop up boom and it would just be
02:55
horrible right and it was social i was i
02:59
had like extreme anxiety every single
03:01
day it’s my bump me my hair would pop
03:02
out of place and i would look like an
03:03
idiot that’s what I do because some
03:05
little punk kid told me I needed to comb
03:07
my hair right so there’s there’s my
03:08
childhood drama I know I lived a
03:11
horrible life that was the worst of it
03:12
all but it was tough for me like and so
03:15
there’s a reason why I’m telling you is
03:16
this so fast forward now to 9th grade no
03:21
10th grade 10th grade I’m rustling which
03:24
just makes your hair get even bigger
03:26
right so it’s like it’s it’s horrible
03:29
like it’s just huge right so I go
03:30
dressing price come out it’s just like
03:31
my head’s twice the size the rest of my
03:34
body and it’s just it’s horrible right
03:36
and so everyone’s kind of making fun of
03:38
me all the time so find that summer I
03:39
shaved my head shaved it off and the
03:44
next one woke up didn’t have to comb it
03:45
didn’t do anything it was amazing and I
03:47
member has a start growing back out i
03:48
kept shaving off shaving off and one day
03:50
i was realized that like I had more
03:52
self-confidence having a shape that I
03:54
had more excitement more happiness more
03:56
like everything and so I didn’t I shaved
03:58
my head every every week every other
04:00
week for Android 10-15 years and I feel
04:04
like I’m like in the Bible you know
04:05
story Sampson where he’s got like hair
04:07
they cut it and they become
04:08
I felt the opposite like soon as I cut
04:09
my hair I became like the strong person
04:12
again and so I come here for forever and
04:14
that gave me the confidence I needed to
04:17
be able to become wrestler all the other
04:18
things that need my life and my hair was
04:20
like this limiting factor and it’s funny
04:21
cuz I think like five or six years ago a
04:23
little longer now my wife’s like you
04:25
should grow your hair out I think you
04:26
look good so I did and and like it was
04:30
we’re sure growing yeah I became super
04:32
self-conscious about my hair about
04:33
everything I was like this is not good
04:36
this is like ruining me so finally I
04:37
figure out a way to do it where Ike it’s
04:40
easy it looks all right doesn’t look
04:42
great but it’s like whatever I’m fine
04:43
and then and that I’m okay with it right
04:46
so but took me like a couple months to
04:48
get to that point where I was like okay
04:49
with like I was literally like hiding
04:51
because I’m so embarrassed my hair and
04:53
the other problems my head is so fat I
04:54
can’t wear a normal hat p I always tell
04:56
people I go whatever try try this happen
04:58
i put a hat on the right whoa your head
05:00
is really fat like I know us I’m telling
05:02
you like I can’t wear normal hat like
05:04
I’m not a normal person my head is just
05:07
thick in any way there you go so and
05:10
that there’s my drama the reason why I’m
05:12
sure he has this is because as stupid as
05:15
little things like that are like they
05:17
have a huge impact like I can’t even
05:19
tell you how hard it was a function in
05:21
school because of my stupid hair and
05:22
then he I start growing in like I was
05:24
embarrassing with the office and to do
05:25
videos and all these kind of things that
05:26
that were brought up because of that so
05:30
why do I tell you is that i don’t really
05:32
know other than when I feel comfortable
05:35
I can do more stuff right with myself so
05:37
it could be a lot of things it could be
05:38
like your looks it could be your weight
05:40
it could be your clothes can be whatever
05:41
those things are you know I know that
05:48
like I don’t want to feel like a jerk so
05:52
I’m gonna I’m trying to like phrases
05:54
carefully right but like when I have I
05:58
closed that I like that I fit well and I
05:59
feel comfortable like I do better and
06:02
not and like I don’t like I’m not a suit
06:05
and tie guy like I can’t stand a suit
06:06
against an atty can’t stand suit jackets
06:09
can’t stand all those kind of things do
06:11
I can’t stand shoes and socks like I
06:13
were bare feet all winter long because
06:14
it’s like I feel more comfortable I
06:16
think a lot of times we try to put on a
06:18
suit or a uniform or something to like
06:19
impress other people right and there’s
06:22
there’s a place in a time for that right
06:23
like like I go to church I dress up I
06:26
dress nice if I was to go get a job and
06:28
you go dress nice like there’s times to
06:29
dress nice but there’s times when are
06:31
like functional time you’re trying to
06:33
get things done in accomplishing some
06:34
move things forward and try to be an
06:36
entrepreneur we’re trying to run you’re
06:37
all these kind of things like I really
06:39
think that these little barriers that
06:41
are our inner awake and can actually
06:42
slow us down and hurt us it’s kind of
06:44
interesting I remember went back you
06:48
know if you listen my podcast for any
06:49
eggs for a while you know all my stores
06:51
but back when we had our big office with
06:55
100 employees the guy that ran the cells
06:57
for he liked dressing up so he made guys
06:59
dress up nice every single date on
07:01
Friday they would have a casual day and
07:02
I was like that’s kind of cool but I
07:04
want to flip it so I had like casual day
07:06
every day but friday i made everyone
07:07
dress up and i remember for my two or
07:10
three months like I would wear a shirt
07:12
and it tied everything in and everyone
07:13
did and and like we looked good I
07:16
remember like hating it I hated it so
07:19
bad and like I didn’t like I was so
07:22
miserable ever one day like I’m trying
07:24
with a stupid tie on a tie and I’m like
07:25
I hate this like why am I doing this
07:28
this isn’t like i created this business
07:30
I shouldn’t have to do this if I don’t
07:31
want any way I don’t think anyone else
07:33
is enjoying it like let’s just not do
07:34
that like let’s all be comfortable cuz
07:36
we’re comfortable then we can we can do
07:38
our thing and we can just get stuff done
07:40
and so I’m a big believer in that so I
07:43
would say like
07:45
is sit back and like like next time your
07:48
your desk where ever you do your work
07:50
sit there for a second and just notice
07:51
like what what parts are comfortable not
07:54
like are your shoes really comfortable
07:55
they are cool if they’re not take them
07:57
off put on sandals like I do right
07:59
you’re wearing slacks you like these are
08:01
our genes or whatever like my kids hate
08:03
jeans right I love jeans like I would
08:05
sleep in him every night my wife didn’t
08:06
think that was weird my kids hate jeans
08:08
right so why my mate why make them wear
08:10
jeans if they want to wear like
08:12
basketball shorts every day even in the
08:13
winter right cuz it’s like it’s
08:14
comfortable then if they’re comfortable
08:16
they’re gonna perform at a higher level
08:17
right something like that like I think
08:20
about for me for weight a lot of times
08:21
like some day is like when I eat healthy
08:22
and do good like I feel better right
08:23
sometimes I don’t wanna like I see my
08:26
stomach my double chin wherever those
08:27
things are and like those things make me
08:29
self-conscious and they keep me from
08:31
producing right even this a small
08:33
subconscious level like I might not want
08:35
to go on a phone with someone or talk to
08:36
me to a webinar or go to state go to a
08:38
seminar whatever because I don’t feel
08:40
comfortable and and and again it can any
08:45
lead your hair like I’m really excited i
08:47
am done a periscope guess why guess why
08:48
this is a periscope or this is a mark in
08:51
your car not a periscope cuz my head
08:53
looks like an orange on a toothpick like
08:54
I’m in like it looks horrible in me and
08:56
so because I like I’m not producing in
08:58
my highest level right it’s just like
08:59
these Duke stupid little things that
09:01
don’t matter at all except for they
09:02
matter so much because it keeps you from
09:05
from from doing what you want to do
09:06
right and so I guess my message for
09:10
today and maybe it’s like the dumbest
09:13
message of my entire however many
09:15
episodes will be done but I think it’s
09:17
important to keep be comfortable like
09:19
you can’t produce if you’re not in a
09:20
comfortable spot right I’m talking about
09:22
weight talking about how you look I’m
09:24
talking about you feel talking about the
09:25
clothes you wear the chair you’re in
09:27
your surroundings all those kind of
09:29
things have have huge a little tiny
09:32
impact but but they compound and they
09:34
become really really huge and when you
09:36
have all those things together it can
09:37
keep you back from doing what you need
09:38
to do right we’re entrepreneurs we have
09:40
a mission we have something we’re trying
09:42
to do and trying to accomplish it in
09:43
people’s lives were trying to change it
09:45
so all those little things are friction
09:46
point
09:47
they keep you from from moving forward
09:49
and so I think a big thing is next time
09:51
you guys are sitting there working is to
09:52
stop and like and Bo become aware and
09:55
cow am I feeling but I feel awkward I
09:57
feel good do I feel weird do I feel like
09:58
how do you how do you actually feel and
10:00
then try like figure how to break off
10:02
those friction points and for me it was
10:04
as simple as I stopped wearing socks hey
10:07
like like it was just like this is the
10:10
dumbest thing but like when I wear socks
10:11
like the compression under few so you
10:13
take socks off and there’s like that
10:14
sock line right and so like I hate
10:17
excellent cuz like you go someone’s
10:18
house you know and you take your shoes
10:20
off and maybe your socks thinking oh
10:21
crap let me take my socks level you do
10:23
nigga it’s like sock compression like
10:24
all these issues that seem so dumb that
10:27
happened in a split of a millisecond in
10:29
your head but all those things keep you
10:32
from producing and performing your
10:33
highest level when I flipped it off got
10:34
socks on or no socks that flip flops and
10:36
I don’t have that issue anymore right it
10:38
just magically disappears and it ended
10:42
so dumb so he has a rolling your eyes
10:44
are you serious Russell you have OCD
10:46
like I never even knew but it’s not
10:48
about that it’s about it’s about getting
10:50
rid of any resistance to me performing
10:53
my highest level and so becoming aware
10:56
of those things it’s interesting I was
10:59
this long time ago I was listening to a
11:01
matte fury course about productivity and
11:04
about I can’t remember exactly what it
11:05
was but he was talking about just like
11:06
how changing your back ear and fireman
11:08
your atmosphere how much it changes
11:09
things he’s like for example next time
11:11
you go in your office they just move
11:12
something move your desk remove your
11:14
monitor move something and like and
11:15
notice how it feel like it feels
11:17
different right there’s a whole study
11:18
about Fung Shui I don’t know anything
11:20
about it I know it has to do with that
11:21
same kind of concept right and it’s just
11:23
like if you sorta can be aware of it
11:25
like how is this how are these like
11:26
little things all affecting me if you
11:28
start tweaking them and changing and
11:29
moving around and then it can have a
11:31
really big impact long-term so there you
11:34
go there’s the the message from the LCD
11:36
Russell of and I’m six attica’s in seven
11:41
minutes from now my hair will be chopped
11:43
deck down to size and I will be able to
