00:00
good morning everybody I hope you guys
00:03
are doing amazing my name’s Russell
00:05
Brunson I want to welcome you to market
00:07
in your car welcome to the marketing in
00:10
your car podcast where you can increase
00:12
your traffic conversions and sales in
00:15
just 10 minutes a day and now here’s
00:18
your host Russell Brunson all right guys
00:22
it’s a beautiful day beautiful day I’m
00:25
excited got my hair cut yesterday so you
00:28
guys heard which is nice and I wanted ad
00:31
thinking about last I was getting my
00:32
hair cut and there’s one other thing I
00:34
was telling you guys about so my OCD is
00:35
like socks and stuff and I realize
00:37
another reason why i hate socks so I’m
00:40
the chocolate one more thing to my OCD
00:41
in this and then we’ll get back to get
00:43
back to business so you know when you
00:44
have pants on like Levi’s and shoes and
00:47
socks and you have white socks under
00:48
knees right and you sit and like when
00:51
you’re standing your pants is right
00:52
length most of time so as you sit and
00:54
they come up and you can see your white
00:56
socks it feels like you’re at high water
00:58
anyway I hate that too so when you have
01:02
sandals on flip-flops and you sit down
01:04
and if your pants are a little bit
01:05
higher nobody knows you got white socks
01:08
on everybody know so another reason why
01:10
i hate sucks alright so now that we are
01:13
over that let’s get back to work so this
01:16
morning was awesome woke up early went
01:17
out there’s doing squats and legs and
01:18
had a good leg day and the end lady I
01:20
thought oh I’m gonna do box jumps
01:22
because that’ll be a great way to
01:23
destroy my legs at the end of lake day
01:25
right and I learned a very valuable
01:27
lesson that’s important for all of you
01:29
guys who do legs and that is don’t do
01:31
box jumps at the end of lake day because
01:34
somewhere in the 10th you know I did
01:37
three three sets of 10 box jumps really
01:39
the higher ones i was like 33 box jumps
01:43
left and I slipped and smacked my shin
01:45
in two spots on the box and I am
01:47
bleeding and I’ve got a goose bump the
01:50
size of a golf ball on my leg and then
01:53
that and were above it both bleeding
01:54
like crazy so that’s that was not fun so
01:57
another lesson to learn today alright so
02:00
today I’ve actually got two important
02:02
lessons that actually are useful as
02:04
opposed to the ones I gave you yesterday
02:05
and today so
02:08
I hope that you made it through
02:10
yesterday and now you guys are prepare
02:12
for some good stuff so I’m gonna teach
02:14
you guys two lessons I learned from my
02:16
dad that have been vital to everything
02:19
in my life and I think that they are
02:22
helpful for you and for your kids and
02:25
for your everybody who is work with and
02:28
have a chance to serve and so I would
02:31
think about this a lot because my dad
02:33
and I next week are actually going to
02:35
the NCAA wrestling tournament so as you
02:38
guys know I’m kind of obsessed with
02:39
wrestling and wrestling we don’t were
02:41
not on TV we don’t get you know people
02:44
show up at our matches and it’s just
02:45
kind of like it’s a sport that it gets
02:47
very little of right it’s a little once
02:49
a year when like it’s like a big deal
02:51
we’re actually on ESPN maybe’s espn2 I
02:54
don’t even know but we’re actually on
02:55
TVs NCAA wrestling tournament and so a
02:58
couple years ago my wife and my dad
03:00
surprised me they booked me a trip out
03:03
to the NCAA’s that I didn’t know they
03:05
they basically said here’s airplane
03:06
tickets you’re going somewhere and I
03:08
kind of knew i’m like why no NCAA
03:09
tournament this weekend everyone the
03:11
airport’s got cauliflower ear kind of
03:12
know what’s happening right so I’m
03:14
getting there and they they like when
03:15
you land in denver open this package but
03:17
don’t open before so I land in denver
03:19
open the package and there’s a there’s
03:22
two tickets the NCAA tournament and it
03:25
says meet your dad at terminal whatever
03:27
and it was just the coolest gift I
03:29
didn’t know I’d Ava’s come in and went
03:30
oh that tournament I dad was there and
03:32
we went to NCAA’s together and had a
03:33
great time I was pretty sick years ago
03:35
and so I’m going back once or twice
03:37
since then Dagan Smith my man invited me
03:40
a couple times and we uh I think two
03:43
NCAA’s ago we sat he got me front-row
03:44
tickets so I flew in got front-row
03:46
tickets to the finals watch the finals
03:48
together and I flew out which was so
03:50
cool and so this year Dagan’s like hey
03:53
you go one nothing I don’t think I’m
03:54
gonna go this year just have so much
03:56
stuff happening there live event and
03:57
then I was like you know what what my
03:59
dad went with me to be worth it so I
04:00
text my dad like hey Dad if I get taken
04:02
sin CAU you in and he takes back yes I
04:05
was like cool and that was me that was
04:07
before church couple weeks ago so then
04:08
after church I called and I was like hey
04:09
just want to make sure you’re and he’s
04:10
like we better be going he’s like I’ve
04:12
been telling everybody I’m going to see
04:14
a turnip it sound like Sweden so we
04:16
bought tickets and it sits in Madison
04:18
Square Gardens this year
04:19
her in New York and so we got a place
04:22
downtown we’re gonna stay in I got 12 30
04:24
seats I trying to front row seats but
04:26
they are gone so we had 12 row seats
04:28
which is pretty sweet and it’s gonna be
04:30
it’s gonna be fun so I’m excited looking
04:31
forward to that and so just been
04:33
thinking about my dad a lot and and
04:34
actually called lash or call them on was
04:38
on my birthday Tuesday’s my birthday
04:39
call him he called me my birth name we
04:40
talked in an hour and just super fun so
04:43
I start thinking about him and just cool
04:45
stuff that I’ve learned from him and I
04:46
said there’s two lessons that I think
04:49
were really really important and I want
04:51
to show you guys so lesson number one my
04:56
dad used to always tell me when we’d
05:00
have our little dad conversations you
05:01
know we’re driving or whatever and and I
05:04
don’t know how it came up I remember him
05:05
saying this multiple times and it had
05:07
like a really big impact on me i
05:08
remember i just always hearing this
05:11
thought in my head but he used to tell
05:12
me said that there’s two kinds of people
05:13
in this world Russell he said there are
05:16
people who are really good at finding
05:18
problems he’s like that’s the majority
05:20
of the world he said the second kind of
05:23
person are people that are really good
05:24
at finding answers and says you want to
05:26
make sure that you’re the type of person
05:27
that finds answers and and I remember
05:32
thinking I remember hearing that and I
05:33
thought it was cool but I didn’t make
05:35
sense to me then right and I fast
05:37
forward and started this business I
05:39
started doing things and I realized that
05:40
that’s how the majority the world is
05:43
there they’re finding problems all the
05:45
time but I they come to you here’s a
05:46
problem here’s another problem here’s a
05:47
problem here’s a brand they’re just all
05:49
about finding problems and it’s it’s
05:52
about as hard to find a problem is it is
05:54
to find a solution and so as I started
05:57
this business and I realized that people
05:59
always have these problems I thought I
06:00
went back to my dad’s less than I
06:02
thought you know I’m like there’s a lot
06:03
of problems out there I don’t want to be
06:05
the dude who’s always finding problems
06:06
let me be the guy who finds solutions
06:07
and and that’s served me my whole life
06:10
it served me so much my business you’ll
06:13
get why we create products like it’s we
06:16
we are creating answers to people’s
06:18
problems and so the problems are
06:20
everywhere I we just got to figure out
06:21
how to solve those problems and people
06:23
will give you insane amounts of money
06:24
for that I look at my coaching programs
06:26
look at our software i look at all the
06:28
stuff that we do is
06:29
all were the second person were the
06:32
people that are that are finding
06:34
solutions we’re finding answers and that
06:36
little nugget that he gave me probably
06:38
in was 10 or 11 years old and repeated a
06:41
few times for my my childhood has meant
06:43
the world to me so that’s the first one
06:45
I’ll repeat that there’s two types of
06:46
people in this world people who find
06:48
problems and people who find solutions
06:50
make sure you’re the type of person who
06:51
find solutions so I was number one which
06:53
is is so cool on so many different
06:56
levels so there you go and then number
06:58
two and this was a lesson that was a lot
07:01
more subtle and I realized it was a
07:04
lesson at first I thought it was more of
07:06
a guilt trip but man it worked so my
07:11
parents were really good at giving us
07:13
chores and making sure that we worked
07:14
and we’re producers inside of our family
07:17
right it wasn’t it wasn’t like we didn’t
07:20
we didn’t have work to do which I’m
07:21
grateful for I hated at a time but love
07:23
it now so one Saturday you know they’re
07:28
giving out the chores everyone for the
07:30
for the Saturday day well my chore was
07:32
to go and clean his car and and so I
07:37
went I watched the outside of it and I
07:39
watched the inside of it you know and
07:40
I’m spraying the windows that do all
07:41
kind of stuff and then um I came I came
07:45
to my dad ice okay dad I’m done I said
07:48
want to come look at it and looked at me
07:49
he said I came or exactly with somebody
07:53
he basically said he said uh excitement
07:57
like one come look at and make sure it’s
07:58
good and then I’ll be done he’s like
08:00
were you proud of it and I go my proud
08:03
of it he said he said if if you’re proud
08:08
of it then you’re done and I’m thinking
08:11
I am i proud of this like did I like I
08:18
and I was thinking to my head on my wall
08:20
like I think I know that I cut corners
08:22
like I was trying to get done like go
08:24
goof off and he’s like if you’re proud
08:27
of it you’re done and I’m ever thinking
08:28
I was like well let me let me go check
08:30
again dad I’m gonna go back and check
08:31
someone back again I start looking
08:32
around and I realize like I wasn’t that
08:35
proud of it like I just like you know
08:37
gone halfway and did a couple things and
08:39
so like when back in the car and
08:41
and I did it right I did it in the spot
08:44
where I was proud of it I came back and
08:45
I said dad I’m done you wanna come do
08:47
you want to come look he said you proud
08:49
of it and I said I am he said okay then
08:50
you’re done and he didn’t even have to
08:53
look at he knew that if I was proud of
08:54
it that I had I had done it and i think
08:56
that uh again then the lessons served my
08:59
whole life like I look at what i do in
09:00
wrestling and business in parenting and
09:04
like all the different things that comes
09:06
back to me like well you proud of it did
09:08
you do like all right did you get enough
09:10
job that you were proud of it and if you
09:11
did then you’re done if not I go back
09:13
and do it till you’re proud of it right
09:16
and anyway just just kind of a little
09:18
thing that has meant the world to me so
09:20
there you go there’s two amazing lessons
