00:00
what’s up everybody so Brunson and I got
00:03
a really cool message I want to share
00:04
with you guys tonight
00:06
that first may not seem like a marketing
00:10
secret but I really could probably the
00:14
secret behind all the gifts and talents
00:16
we’ve been given so the big question is
00:19
this power onch Brewers like us who
00:22
didn’t cheat and take on venture capital
00:24
we’re spending money from our own
00:25
pockets how do we mark it in a way the
00:28
lets us get our products and our
00:30
services and the things that you believe
00:31
in out to the world and yet still remain
00:34
profitable that is the question in this
00:37
podcast we’ll give you the answers my
00:40
name is Russell Brunson and welcome to
00:41
marketing secrets alright everybody so I
00:48
hope first off that you’re all having a
00:50
great day and I just want to share a
00:53
really neat experience and I’m gonna get
00:56
slightly religious for like five seconds
00:58
but just to be able to illustrate a
01:00
point
01:01
behind why I believe you’ve been given
01:03
the gifts that you have and I guess if
01:05
you’re here listen to my podcast that’s
01:08
not a fluke you’ve been blessed with
01:11
something amazing and because of that
01:13
you’ve also been blessed with desire to
01:15
share to help order server to something
01:17
right like it’s just it’s not something
01:19
I understood for a long time it’s
01:20
something I see so clearly now a big
01:24
believer that that God he calls us to do
01:31
things and then he qualifies us by
01:36
oftentimes taking us through a long
01:38
horrible road for us to learn the skills
01:43
we need to be able to accomplish the
01:45
thing that he wants us to do it’s
01:46
interesting so and you may or may not
01:49
believe that but regardless it’s it
01:51
happens you’ve seen it right you’ve seen
01:52
where it’s like I’m gonna accomplish
01:53
this thing I have no idea I’m gonna do
01:54
that and you go through this horrible
01:56
painful process often times and then on
02:00
the out the back side of it you’re able
02:02
to accomplish that thing and it’s like
02:03
oh that actually wasn’t that bad and
02:04
it’s because of this this journey this
02:07
road we’ve gone on that has increased
02:08
our capacity to be able to actually do
02:10
the thing we need to do anyway so last
02:13
the weekend we were in San Diego for for
02:18
David or Sun Chandler got married and it
02:20
was a cool thing and so my wife and I
02:22
had a chance to fly down there and be
02:24
there for the wedding and the reception
02:24
and it just it was really really cool
02:26
and then Sunday we’re flying back home
02:28
and normally we you know try to go to
02:31
church something but we couldn’t because
02:32
it’s just the way timing was that but
02:34
there’s a really cool thing in San Diego
02:36
that it’s called the Mormon Battalion
02:41
visitor center something like that and
02:44
so we had like an hour before flights we
02:47
went from our hotel there and then
02:48
what’s a little tour of the thing and
02:50
for those who don’t know Mormon history
02:52
doesn’t really matter but it was
02:53
interesting is that after after people
02:57
murdered the Prophet the the Mormon
02:59
prophet Joseph Smith they were leaving
03:00
and they were trying to come basically
03:02
back West to find like somewhere to hide
03:05
from these people who didn’t like the
03:06
Mormons right and so they get these hand
03:08
cards and they’re moving all this stuff
03:09
and they’re literally fleeing from from
03:12
from the government and then all of a
03:14
sudden one day all these these guys show
03:16
up and these horses and like hey we need
03:19
500 of your men to to join them this
03:22
this army to fight with the country
03:24
against the the Mexican Army’s and and
03:28
you know first like dude you guys
03:30
literally you killed our property around
03:31
us out of the town you killed our people
03:33
you’ve done these things and now you
03:34
want us to join in your army and and
03:38
anyway basically I’m not gonna get too
03:41
much in the whole story but but they
03:43
prayed about it I felt like yes when you
03:45
do this so five hundred these men left
03:47
their wives and less there’s children
03:48
and what and this long huge a year-long
03:52
journey down down to Texas and across
03:55
Arizona all the way to California part
03:59
of this this little army called the
04:00
Mormon Battalion and they were promised
04:02
by the Prophet Brigham Young at the time
04:04
that if they went on this journey that
04:05
they wouldn’t actually see war and their
04:07
families be protected so that’s kind of
04:08
this thing’s they go on this huge
04:09
journey and I promise you guys who were
04:12
their religion the non-religious people
04:14
are listening saying why is he talking
04:15
about this there’s a purpose at a point
04:17
and I think it’s important so anyway
04:20
takes these people and they go on this
04:21
journey for all these for you know
04:24
months and months and get finally get
04:25
all the California
04:26
they don’t see any war they go in
04:29
California actually end up in San Diego
04:31
and when their San Diego was interesting
04:34
like they brought with them like they
04:37
learned how to make bricks all these
04:39
sort of things they came to San Diego
04:40
and taught the people to hear this and
04:41
they actually help settle San Diego
04:43
initially and then from there they’re
04:45
their year and of being up with the with
04:48
the armies had a chance to go back and
04:49
get their families and help them come
04:51
across the plains and was interesting
04:53
about it and this is I want to share
04:55
this is that they went on this big long
04:57
journey that they felt called by the
04:58
Lord to go on they didn’t you know
05:01
they’re like hopefully you know to help
05:04
in this war they didn’t get in the war
05:07
they never fought they never eat
05:08
anything but they went on this journey
05:10
and through this journey
05:12
man they got dehydrated they didn’t eat
05:14
or drink for weeks at a time all sorts
05:16
of things they met Indians that I did
05:19
also have a bit on this journey they’ve
05:21
learned a whole bunch of really cool
05:22
things they learned how to farm in
05:24
desert land they learned how to get how
05:27
to make bricks they learned how to kind
05:29
of find food they learned all these
05:30
amazing things so then when they get
05:32
back and they get their families they
05:34
moved to Salt Lake when you get to Salt
05:35
Lake Lake Salt Lake was like a horrible
05:37
place right there’s this big salty lake
05:39
in the middle this valley everything’s
05:40
dead and this is where the Mormons
05:43
decide to settle right and they get
05:45
there and these five hundred men that
05:46
gone on this big huge journey they get
05:48
here in the Reich well we know how like
05:51
we learned on this journey how to go and
05:54
like how to irrigate water we learn how
05:56
to make bricks we learned how to do all
05:57
these things and all these skills that
05:59
they had to have when they got to Utah
06:01
to be able to settle that place and be
06:03
able to build this amazing city that
06:04
they did and as I’m watching it’s like I
06:07
literally like tears in my in my eyes
06:09
like as I’m as I’m realizing how
06:13
symbolic this is to most the missions
06:15
will we go on right like for some reason
06:17
we always have some kind of calling
06:19
right and it comes in different ways
06:20
some people some of you guys like you
06:21
got into this business because you’re
06:23
like the calling was like I need to make
06:25
money for my family right that was
06:26
definitely initially what got me into
06:28
this right and it’s the equivalent like
06:30
hey you’re gonna go to war to California
06:31
leave your family or no this huge long
06:32
journey so you go on this journey and I
06:34
think if people would have told us ahead
06:35
of time like hey if you do on this
06:37
journey here’s what’s gonna happen
06:39
you’re gonna you know you’re not gonna
06:40
have water he gave me going through like
06:42
Arizona in the middle of summer you’re
06:44
not gonna have like I was horrible day
06:46
if we knew the journey and I’m wounded
06:47
done right if you knew also he had to go
06:49
through the builds your business
06:50
you probably would’ve done initially
06:51
right I can like that that’s just too
06:53
much I can’t do that some of you guys
06:56
you know came in not because you wanted
06:58
money maybe was because you wanted
06:59
impact or you had a message or you found
07:02
a product that you loved or there’s
07:04
someone you believe and you want to
07:05
support them or whatever we all come in
07:07
for different reasons different things
07:08
that bring us into this this journey and
07:10
then we have to go through a journey
07:12
that typically is not easy like if I
07:15
look back on the last 14 years of my
07:17
life the journey to get to where we are
07:19
today and get click phones were like it
07:21
wasn’t it was not all sunshine and roses
07:25
it was tough it was really really tough
07:30
but what happens when you go through
07:32
those hard times like it increases your
07:34
capacity to handle things you learn
07:36
little pieces of every single thing
07:38
along the way and I feel that that God
07:42
is preparing you for whatever your
07:43
Romish it is and I don’t even think
07:46
click phones was my real mission to me
07:47
Leon it’s like I think it’s it’s
07:48
something it’s they click phones to
07:50
prepare me for something different I
07:52
think I have Inklings of an idea of
07:54
where my real mission is I could be
07:58
completely wrong I don’t I don’t know
07:59
but all the ups and the downs of trials
08:02
errors I learned and it helped help me
08:05
for a decade my life to increase in
08:06
capacity so that when this amazing
08:08
opportunity clickfunnels came I’ve been
08:09
able to handle it I know that I look at
08:11
my partners people my team I look at the
08:13
journeys they allow to go through to
08:14
build increase their capacity to be able
08:16
to handle this thing because then I
08:18
don’t know about I think who talked us
08:19
out a little bugs podcast like it’s it’s
08:21
not all sunshine and roses it’s it’s a
08:23
battle every single day we’re getting
08:25
the crap kicked out of sometimes some
08:27
things it’s like you knocked down you
08:29
get back up again but if that would
08:32
happened five years ago we couldn’t
08:33
handle it and so we when I was an
08:35
interesting journey where we got beat up
08:37
over and over and over again increase
08:39
our capacity so when we got to this
08:41
battle to this war to this to this stage
08:44
or on now we had the capacity to handle
08:46
these things and it’s so fascinating and
08:50
yeah and it just makes me so grateful
08:53
for that journey and for those things
08:57
like I think that’s why I started crying
08:58
and watching this thing with the Mormon
08:59
Battalion like like none of them wanted
09:01
to go on that journey the journey was
09:02
horrible but because they were on that
09:04
journey they come back to the Salt Lake
09:06
Valley and they they had been blessed
09:08
with the gifts and the talents and
09:10
abilities they needed to be able to
09:12
thrive in the desert next to a big huge
09:15
salty nasty lake right and I feel like
09:19
all of us go on the same journey and I
09:22
don’t know like most you guys I’m sure
09:24
the journey that you thought you were
09:25
going on when you get back to where yeah
09:27
now like it wasn’t the same journey
09:28
right like it’s similar and but all
09:31
these things you learn along the way
09:31
made it possible and again I feel like
09:33
this this clickfunnels thing that we’re
09:34
doing now as much as I love it and I’m
09:36
obsessed with it and I’m like so
09:37
grateful for it but it flow for the ups
09:39
and the downs and for everything like
09:41
it’s it’s preparing me for something
09:43
else is preparing people my team for
09:45
something I don’t know what that is yet
09:47
I don’t think maybe I’m wrong but I
09:50
don’t think God cares a ton about you
09:53
know if my funnel converts or not which
09:55
by the way the new fund we launched last
09:56
week is killing it but he doesn’t care
09:58
right but but he’s giving me and you and
10:05
us the talents the skillsets the
10:07
relationships the abilities the things
10:09
we need so we can do it he really wants
10:11
us to do so my recommendation for this
10:15
podcast and my thoughts is just for you
10:17
guys to think about like what is he
10:18
really calling you to do maybe there is
10:22
no God maybe maybe honestly just think
10:24
that like other like maybe there’s not
10:26
maybe this is all just coincidence I
10:28
don’t know but regardless this journey
10:30
we go on it’s it’s preparing us for the
10:33
next thing and I believe in a God I
10:35
believe that he’s there guiding this
10:36
stuff and so like I’m not afraid to talk
10:38
about that I believe it but when you do
10:42
believe it it’s interesting because it’s
10:43
just like wow that there’s this hand in
10:44
this guy to me like what am i learning
10:46
along the way like why why did I have
10:48
this horrible trial this horrible thing
10:51
that happens like well a lot of times we
10:53
don’t know right now but in hindsight
10:54
you look back later you’re like wow I
10:56
could not have done that if it wasn’t
10:57
for that I think how fascinating that
10:59
that thing that I hated became this you
11:01
know such a good thing ever Tony Robbins
11:03
have been
11:04
he asked everyone is like who here like
11:06
surprise never his hands are raised he’s
11:07
like bullcrap
11:08
he’s like he’s like you like surprises
11:10
that are good you know him like
11:12
surprises that are bad you know like all
11:14
the issues like the bad things happen
11:16
those are all surprises you don’t like
11:17
those surprises right like we like the
11:18
surprises that are good but the other
11:19
surprises are there but I believe
11:23
they’re there for our good they’re
11:25
taking us and preparing us and expanding
11:27
our capacity so we can really do it our
11:29
real mission is and most of us probably
11:31
don’t know what our real mission is but
11:33
I think it’s important to keep moving
11:34
forward
11:35
and whatever the thing the path that
11:37
you’re you’re on because as you do that
11:39
like that vision of like what your true
11:41
calling is will appear someday and but
11:44
only if you’re prepared for it if you’re
11:45
not prepared for it’s not gonna be there
11:47
what a tragedy that moment finds him
11:50
unprepared or unqualified for that
11:52
moment which could have been his finest
11:53
hour one of my favorite quotes so there
11:56
you go there’s a little religion from
11:58
from Russell Manor preached you guessed
11:59
and I hope you don’t mind but I just
12:02
think it’s it’s fascinating it was it
12:03
meant a lot to me so I want to share
12:04
with you guys as well and just think
12:07
about that this journey we’re going on
12:08
like the ups and the downs of
12:09
frustrations like don’t give up because
12:11
there’s something there you’re supposed
12:13
to learn is something there’s your
12:14
capacity to prepare you for something
12:16
that’s coming and I know if that’s
12:17
coming in a month now week from now a
12:19
year from now five years time finishing
12:20
I don’t know what it is but I promise
12:23
you these skill sets these things you’re
12:24
learning along the way aren’t just
12:25
happened chance right like there’s no
12:28
reason like like III barely like I
12:34
struggled in school right like how in
12:35
the world was I blessed with these
12:37
abilities to write books and dry copy
12:39
and to speak like if you saw me ten
12:41
years ago I was the most awkward person
12:44
ever like III couldn’t look someone in
12:46
the eye and talk to him right I want a
12:48
mission for the Mormon Church to knock
12:50
doors for two years door by door I was
12:53
so shy and awkward and nervous and like
12:55
I hated it you know I would have to
12:58
speak in church on Sunday I be so scared
13:00
like all these things like but like
13:02
those skills like those things you learn
13:04
like man like like there’s so many ways
13:06
that I’m using it today and
13:09
anyway just fascinating it’s just a cool
13:12
thing looking backwards it’s hard to
13:14
seem forward and so I just wanted to
13:16
pause tonight and look backwards from my
13:19
own perspective because I’m now seeing
13:21
the fruits of those things in my life
13:23
and depending on where you are and all
13:26
of you guys are different spots right
13:27
some of you guys probably did some
13:30
really really tough times right now and
13:31
it’s hard to look back and be like oh
13:32
this blessings awesome
13:35
but I promise you like it’s not gonna
13:38
last and there will be a time able to
13:40
stop and look back and think wow so
13:41
grateful for that thing I still think
13:43
about like the most painful probably the
13:46
most painful experience in my life was
13:48
when we built up every call center made
13:51
a hundred people and some he hasn’t
13:52
heard me tell the story before but I for
13:53
the whole thing collapsed and I had let
13:55
go 40 50 60 people overnight when I had
13:57
people that I loved and cared about and
13:59
thought were my friends and it walked
14:01
out on me and like I think that was so
14:06
like so much pain and in that moment
14:08
like man I I could have never looked at
14:10
that and been like oh this is awesome
14:11
but was it’s so fast and now looking
14:13
back on that and I am so so grateful for
14:18
that course correction that that was
14:22
forced upon me like if it wasn’t for
14:24
that look at the direction we were going
14:26
like who knows like it wouldn’t have
14:28
been good wouldn’t been this it would’ve
14:29
been and that time when I was in the
14:33
darkest like I I still remember one
14:36
morning trying to leave the house and I
14:41
was in Seoul like so much mental anguish
14:43
like I didn’t wanna go out the door and
14:45
my wife came into my room she’s like
14:47
what’s what’s going on and I couldn’t
14:49
even talk and I just start crying and I
14:51
understood me and like pulled me down to
14:54
our knees and we sat there and and she
14:57
prayed for me
14:58
and prayed for us and prayed for this
15:00
thing and I’m looking back like that was
15:03
such a scary scary moment and I know how
15:06
I was gonna survive that from a business
15:09
from a like there’s so many things I
15:11
like how many survives I don’t know no
15:13
idea they stood up she gave me a kiss I
15:16
got the door and back into battle and
15:18
I’m gonna figure it out and because of
15:21
that again that’s what
15:23
