my name is Russell Brunson and welcome
00:28
to marketing secret everyone I hope
00:37
you’re excited for today I’ve got this
00:39
weird thing I think a lot of
00:40
entrepreneurs suffer from this is me but
00:43
today I’m going on vacation for week I’m
00:47
actually like looking forward to it but
00:49
the same time it really stresses me out
00:52
and I it’s one of those things like it’s
00:57
funny because everybody always tells me
00:58
I’ll see you on the vacation you’re
01:00
going to burn out if you keep doing the
01:02
stuff you’re the pace you’re doing all
01:03
sorts of stuff but it’s weird because
01:05
like when I’m whoa sorry
01:08
try to do the new camera tripod while
01:12
I’m driving
01:13
it’s weird though because like when I’m
01:16
at the office and working and being like
01:19
doing my my thing
01:21
like I never feel stressed everything
01:23
under stress you overwhelmed like not
01:25
really like I feel like I’m I’m kind of
01:27
like in my in my flow my motion whatever
01:31
you want to call right when I’m on
01:33
vacation I get like super stress and
01:35
anxiety and like sitting there and not
01:38
doing stuff like it’s really really hard
01:41
for me good that’s why I like reading on
01:43
vacations but we stuff like I’m like
01:44
something’s progressing it’s interesting
01:46
I’m at the Pirates Club mastermind with
01:49
Alex sharpen come and help him to kind
01:53
of figure out how to monetize his
01:55
entrepreneurial personality type content
01:57
which I’m excited for but it’s funny cuz
02:00
I told him I first heard him speak by
02:03
two or three years ago long nails for a
02:05
personality type it was amazing
02:07
I thought I connected with and
02:09
everything I was like okay now when I
02:11
hear some light that I want to give
02:12
somebody money or something and I like
02:14
there’s no way for me to give him money
02:16
so that’s what I actually I asked him if
02:18
I could buy the part that punched her
02:20
personality type from him and he’s like
02:22
no
02:23
and he’s like why am I know exactly what
02:26
I do my hat I can get crap ton of money
02:28
with it he’s like all right enjoy the
02:30
coachee process right afterwards so I
02:32
can help them do it’s like it’s kind of
02:33
fun we’re helping both of the props now
02:34
he’s gonna kill it
02:35
it’s exciting but one thing he talked
02:37
about them interesting about
02:38
entrepreneurs if you have studied Alex’s
02:41
stuff like it’s worth it and it’ll be
02:42
soon in the format it’s going to be a
02:44
podcast let me train your progress with
02:45
a bunch of stuff that he’s kind of going
02:47
to expert seekers process now to figure
02:49
out how to take in something and other
02:52
side when it’s done I’ll be the first
02:53
customer and I think that all you all
02:55
because you’re all like me shouldn’t as
02:56
well but sailing for a personality title
02:59
he’s talking about like different traits
03:00
of entrepreneurs one thing that it’s
03:03
kind of weird I think I’ve heard give
03:07
the presentation three times his core
03:08
kind of main presentation and all three
03:11
times he says one party talks about how
03:13
entrepreneurs don’t identify was happy
03:16
or sad and I was like whatever identify
03:19
with that and then like the more he
03:20
started the more like he started talking
03:25
about the more I was I thinking I’m like
03:27
what am i happier sounds like people I
03:29
said look happy but I’m like I’m just
03:32
kind of happy person it’s funny I am I
03:38
should probably more personal you guys
03:41
want to know but what got my
03:43
testosterone taken actually three years
03:45
and we launched a clip from came back
03:46
like 160 which the doctor literally told
03:49
me is like your grandma higher
03:50
testosterone in New York and then like
03:54
six a month later I did again I was like
03:56
350 and I got done this week I was like
03:57
I was like 450 but every time I got it
04:00
done the doctors always told me like how
04:03
are you standing here you should have no
04:04
energy no motivation as I know it’s like
04:07
the opposite like I like I’m so much
04:10
motivation so much energy that smells
04:12
something like you like you feel higher
04:13
mic like well I was like tired right now
04:16
sometimes it’s like you feel like did
04:21
you do have that like bad memory right
04:24
now it’s like you still like depress
04:26
make no like you feel like all the
04:28
things and
04:29
innovate he was like he’s like true why
04:31
are you here my collection saucers
04:32
reloaded you have no symptoms of that I
04:34
was like because like everything’s so
04:36
exciting right now and I start thinking
04:38
more else with alec stuff like the
04:39
entrepreneurs don’t really look happy
04:41
you’re sad that’s kind of thinking like
04:42
this sadness obviously and someone dies
04:44
or things like that but like as a Holy
04:45
Week in the morning it’s not like am I
04:47
happy am i sad it’s still I was kind of
04:49
confused and I was like I wonder how
04:51
most people view happy and sad like it
04:53
didn’t really make sense to me and then
04:54
his next slide next portion he said he
04:57
said a word and like for me I heard I
04:59
got chills I was like well that’s what I
05:02
do and he said the entrepreneurs don’t
05:03
feel happy or sad what they feel is
05:05
either momentum or a lack of momentum I
05:08
can move them toward something or
05:09
they’re not and moving away from
05:11
something and that’s what we relate to
05:13
it if wouldn’t like what we relate
05:15
happiness to is like motion forward and
05:18
we’re really late
05:20
sadness to wherever is is like not
05:22
progressing not moving forward and I
05:25
think it’s just I think it’s just
05:27
fascinating like momentum movement like
05:30
that’s what what drives entrepreneurs
05:32
like that’s this is not a happier status
05:35
its movement momentum and I think I’d
05:38
say as I’m going to say keishon like
05:39
it’s like the lean face like I’ve done
05:41
all late last night I’m up early this
05:42
morning and I try to get stuff done
05:43
because and like I almost like enjoy the
05:47
process of ready for vacation hey so
05:49
much stuff done for my freak-outs I
05:51
gotta leave those times I’m running
05:52
running around running and moving
05:53
momentum and then like your vacation
05:55
it’s like you stopped like everyone
05:57
wants to just like chill out they want
06:01
to sit and they want to just like sit at
06:03
the beach like I don’t know what it is
06:05
like I get I sitting in the beaches
06:09
because it doesn’t do anything for me
06:13
yeah it’s just weird so like for me it’s
06:16
like I have to have momentum in this in
06:19
this experience as vacation real from
06:22
the drive rest of my family and friends
06:23
and everyone is with us nuts and if I
06:25
didn’t even know they should likewise
06:26
wrestle switching over to the sides like
06:28
because I need momentum I need something
06:30
is like that’s obviously great and I’ll
06:31
read or I’ll be sitting there like
06:32
they’re all talking about my thinking
06:34
about something like what
06:36
to do this I’m creating a creating one
06:37
since they’re thinking because I make
06:38
nervous and it’s just funny cuz my
06:40
wife’s leg you’re on vacation I’m not
06:42
talk about business I’m like so I don’t
06:44
talk about business than like everything
06:46
halts and stops progressing in my life
06:49
and I lack a moment momentum lack of
06:52
movement lack of like direction as well
06:55
other than make me depressed and and and
06:56
sad and like gap like stuck and so
07:01
anyway it’s a funny funny line that we
07:04
have to do especially all your
07:06
entrepreneur czar out there because if
07:08
we see the world a little differently
07:09
and I know people think we’re freaks
07:11
because of it but nothing bad with it
07:13
like I think there’s something bad like
07:14
it’s it’s like why businesses are
07:16
created way but there’s momentum in the
07:17
world I think it’s because entrepreneurs
07:19
will poop dry the entire soul drive is
07:21
momentum towards moving like like we
07:24
have to have that so why would go on
07:28
vacation because we love our wives and
07:29
our kids and our family members I could
07:31
see it’s probably the hardest most
07:32
stressful part which is so weird because
07:34
it’s like go relax go take some time
07:36
you’re going to burn out it’s different
07:39
so anyway so I’m excited I’ve been
07:42
plotting I have three vacations summer
07:44
been plotting all of them like what
07:46
books to read which order or course them
07:48
a study like like what things I’m going
07:50
to be movie I guess it’s funny how like
07:52
that’s the most exciting for me is like
07:54
planning what I’m going to do when when
07:58
I’m not doing anything such a dirt
08:00
anyway there you go that’s what
08:02
entrepreneurs so if you’re not referring
08:03
to her and you don’t really have your
08:05
staff but you do relate with momentum
08:06
and movement and you stressed out about
08:08
vacations and that’s what I’m at and I
08:10
relate with you so there’s nothing else
08:12
on your family vacations is summer when
08:14
you’re stressed now because you do
08:15
nothing I get you
08:17
so while that’s happening think ponder
08:20
vision the a dream like that’s that’s
08:23
what at least for me keeps me going and
08:25
lifts me function like a normal human
08:28
being with everybody else so anyway
08:30
that’s all I got you guys have an
08:31
amazing day
08:32
have a good vacation if you’re gonna
08:33
want to and applaud you by would you
08:37

08:39
we’re actually doing each day to grow
