So it’s going to be a great time. If you haven’t got your tickets yet I’m showing him. Let’s get out there and meet us. We can help you out, so here is our next top emailed and they said what are some of the beliefs that you have that most people think are crazy boy. Based upon that business coach question, I am now going to probably irritate 60% of our audience all at one time, and so just going to the question was asked, didn’t, say clay. What’s a politically correct thing, you should say that would make the audience happy. The question was:what are some of the beliefs that you believe that most people think I’m crazy, so the first onei believe that lazy people are literally being punished by god and should not be assistant so I’m going to give an example, so proverbs 10:4, states lazy hands make for poverty, lazy hands make for poverty, and what book is that written in the bible? Is that book supposed to be divinely?
Crafted hookup is that book supposed to be inspired by god is supposed to be infallible? Is the bible judeo-christians out there listening? Is the bible supposed to be the literal, the literal book, inspired by christ and infallible if I’m, if I’m wrong here, then you tell me so the book says the good book says:lazy and make your property but diligent hands, bring wealth, so lazy hands make poverty. So here’s the thing:if you want to violate god’s rules i, can you score a touchdown? You get six points, that’s the rule! If a guy gets to the 1-yard line, doesn’t score and you want to run onto the field and give them six point anyway. Are you not violating the rules to the game? So I asked you if you help lazy people out financially, are you not breaking god’s laws? You are because that’s how it works. So, if your team’s behind a football game and they get to the 1-yard line-and you give them six points-you’re violating the rules right so again, if the speed limit is 65 in your police officer, can pull somebody over for going 75 and you decide not to get mad if you’re violating what the loss so against, says, lazy, hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring, will tell the people that can’t help themselves. This applies to people who cannot help themselves proverbs 22:9 state, the generous will help themselves or is it just the generous will themselves be blessed for they share their food with the porch, or does that mean I used to work with a kid named? Adam and adam had down syndrome work with adam for a year, I was working, the kidding, chris nelson chris nelson passed away and he had muscular dystrophy chris for 2 years, and you know that why I worked with chris for 2 years, because I went to high school and when I went to highschool with the young.
Kid do like fun of me: cuz i, stuttered, until 6, so I decided in high school I wanted to spend my time that I had free with a kid with cerebral palsy. Why? Because nobody was nice to the stuttering, kid and so I did it and I did it, and eventually I found state of oklahoma for state of minnesota I think all the home health program where they could pay you to watch a kid. I need 24/7 care until I actually spent almost my entire I’m, not kidding I didn’t go out one time with anybody. My entire junior high school, that was with chris as with adam, and you know:why did it cuz? It can’t help them freaking sales. They need help. That’s who needs help! You want to help somebody go to a nursing home and help somebody help a kid who can’t help themselves. Don’t get money to your freaking lazy son, who refuses to do their freaking job quantum off the couch violating god’s lawn they’re losing because they’re terrible they deserve the heart and the hardship will teach them that it’s easier to be diligent. You want to ruin your kid’s life, go ahead and keep giving them handouts. Just keep saying: oh, it’s, okay, you can live with us until you figure out what you want to do, an idiot even entitled idiot. So don’t do it now, if you don’t like the bible I’m sure that you know everybody likes the bible, but if you don’t ask says, he’s all tip he could have a group of proverbs. It worked like hell, I mean you just have to put in 8200 hours per week. This improves your odds of success. Other people are putting in 40 hour weeks and you’re putting in $100 weeks, then, even if you’re doing the same thing, then you know that you will achieve in 4 months what it takes for them to achieve. In a year, aa little company called tesla that didn’t make a profit for 10 years, who is elon musk? Is he a business coach? A company called paypal for 3 years, who’s, elon musk rockets to go to space and can return and land be reusable he’s replacing nasa who is elon musk?
Oh he’s changing the way we do. Energy, solar, city’s, novel largest solar power grid in the world, changing the world. So how come he has time to do it? How come I don’t have time to go: cuz I’m on facebook for 2 hours a day and I watch tv for 5 hours a day according to the new yorker will put on the show notes. The Average americans (not business coach clients) watch is 5 hours a day of tv in 2 hours of social media. So you really don’t have time to be successful. So if you want to ruin, somebody’s life go help a lazy person. If you want to help your life stay tuned as charles colaw breaks down this next concept of working more than 40 hours. If you want to get ahead, it’s about time show on your radio get ready to enter the thrive time, show 3 conversation. A question was emailed and i. Don’t know if you want to know the answer to it, but the question was emailed click clark. What are some of the beliefs that you have that most people think are crazy, believe number, one that I just shared with you I’m sure that was a blasty blast for some of you. The second one is the concept of the 40 hour work week has condemned most people to a life of poverty, and it is yet another violation of god’s laws, strong claims. If I can back. It was something-and you give me genesis, chapter 1 and 2, just read it for a second god created the earth. You did this, you did that boom boom. How many days it take him 6. So if you read the bible and you believe it to be, the literal infallible word of god it’s supposed to what show patterns. So why did it say? God created the earth in 6 days and he rested on the 7th I know:i, probably just random, I guess right:okay, I’m at exit is 3421 where it says directly.
6 days you shall labor who sang that, by the way who sang that. Who is saying I’m going to you again six days you shall labor, but on the 7th you shall rest even during the flowering season in harvest. You must rest who is saying that you should work 6 days. Who is it if your judeo-christian got really interesting? How god said we’re supposed to work 6 days in genesis and exodus? Know it’s a little to move on to 1938, because 1938 got updated. The bible right deducted it didn’t 1938 was that when god hired fdr’s on god talk to franklin delano roosevelt, a pseudo socialist and said, hey fdr, could you update the bible for me and he says sure god I mince pie? If I got a 90, 1938 fdr decided to write in the bible, you can add things to his work. Know it isn’t, but the bible. So he went ahead and add it on to the bible. This whole thing in 1938 this, this wonderful, there’s, wonderful or testament heretic. That’s a strong word. But if you say something it’s against god’s laws and you preach it like it’s supposed to happen, then I have a problem with that so 1938. He says the fair labor standards, act of 1938 united, states labor law that creates the right to the minimum wage in the time-and-a-half overtime. When people work more than 40 out, the problem is now is that to be successful and I have never met and will never meet. Any entrepreneur has ever worked less than 80 hours a week, 80 that we can actually catch you so you’re screwed. It’s a purpose, I think it’s almost like it setup to kind of keep you in your place, so I’m going to well.
Okay, if you really I just recorded your research on fdr, and you will actually just discovered that he actually created a welfare program that was designed to keep acer race of people dependent upon the government that he actually has for his plan. He didn’t like a certain people group. Do your own research and I’ll find it, and he actually said that there’s no verification from multiple sources that he actually wanted to enslave. A group of people on their government checks because he knew they would all live together in a thing called the projects. I, don’t you know these things, so he actually wanted you to become dependent, because you would always vote for who santa claus the guy, giving you the free stuff. I don’t have business coach time for somebody. That’s a real think. So charles will get your take on this and eric chappell take the politics out of it. Have you ever met somebody charles who’s built a successful company, including yourself that when starting it worked less than 50 hours a week, never and I have never seen anybody and I had said. I trained, probably were five thousand people in many of those have been multi-millionaire type people nobody has ever been successful. Happiest people I’ve ever met are the ones that work there. Freaking butt off serving others. God created us to love, others serve others and anybody who’s doing something that they’re passionate about doing it. 40 50, 60, i, actually, the more they do it, the more excited they get. It’s like rain, a race when you get ahead of everybody actually makes you more encouraged rate run faster than you win. You feel great, yes, you want to do it again and I really truly believe i. Could you look at like rock concerts? People are throwing their hands up in the air, worshiping they’re, actually putting their hands up and worshipping something you would like a any concert, but any like a football didn’t like the super bowl. We all want to watch and serving about in the more that we do stuff and god created us to serve others and we serve others.
You actually get excited about it, but he wants. The whole thing is:is I’ve never seen anybody succeeded in 40 hours a week. I actually think that the whole mindset between 40 hours a week is a is a purposeful limit. Brian kept us i, really think that if you want to work 40 hours, a the word, damn damn I want to give you that word. Damn is right, make sure you enter the word. Damn means a lot of times it. It said in people, don’t let means the word. Damn mean to be condemned by god to suffer eternal punishment in hell, so damn is like hell, so you’re not damned if you don’t, if you’re not you’re, not go to hell as a result of working 40 hours a week. Okay, you get sick still get salvation, but on earth you will lose in your business will be terrible and your life will be terrible and you will deserve the poverty that you get as a result of not sowing the seeds not chop. This is this is the thing. Let’s say that somebody has listen to this and I go that’s pretty controversial. One are you? Are you having more controversial thoughts of what the question was? What are some of the beliefs that you have that most people think are crazy. This third belief is that those that over-deliver will rule the world and those that don’t want those that business coach over-deliver will rule the world and those that don’t want to break it down what it means to over-deliver champ means to go above and beyond. That’s one of these five, a right that he looks for in team members. Are employees going above and beyond, went above and beyond to do so. You personally my life when I work with you is like I will talk about this on the show in the past I’m, not an owner of thrive, but I treat what I do as though I was what I do as though I was because I know I’m watching you know, like you always say, god is watching work into the lord.
I know that I’m watching myself, I want to do the best that I can do every partner that I have is some of that I have approached as a result of them working hard all of them. Why would you do anything else? That’s what I was getting at is like why any man that I want to team up to the limo company because he’s diligent diligent, do we had a successful career in all up to this point, and so it’s it’s. It’s really a mindset and it’s how you get ahead in life. If you over deliver there’s a law of reciprocity, if I do something for you, it gives you the feeling that you need to do something back for me. So here is where I’m going to leave you two more notable quotable colossians 3:23 hand on the bible that a body it says, whatever you do work at it with all of your heart as working for the lord and not for human masters, little quote from napoleon hill. He said you can start right where you business coach stand and apply to have it going extra mile by rendering more service in better service than for which you are paid. The point is:if you go to thrive time, show.Com and you book a ticket to our workshop, we was scholarship program. So, if you can’t afford will meet you halfway to three-quarters of the way, the tickets are $99 a piece, but you got to try to buy it. If you can’t afford it, just tell us what will bridge the gap but I promise you the money back, guarantee I promise you when you get there, I’m, not working for you not working for anybody, not working for the man that work for the government, not working for the goals.
I’m, not working for anybody, I’m working as unto the lord yes I’m, going to do the very best I can do and that’s all I can do so I’m going to do the very best and that people tell me that I may say I feel like watching you do the workshop. Your passion for the subject see passion for the topics of passion, for the thing you went over was kind of like a pastor like I feel like this is like what you’re called need to do and I said:get your blood checked out. The word vocation means call it. The word. Vacation needs to retreat. I don’t ever want to go on a vacation, because I have found my vocation. So for me, every single day is a great day. Cuz I know my calling and I believe that you might just be called to book a ticket at drivetime show.Com. We have four tickets left for this. Friday’s conference buy your tickets today at thrive time, show.Com. What’s going to thrive time, show.Com stay 2 play broadcast broadcasting live from the center of the universe, presenting the world’s only business school without the bs, with optometrist turned entrepreneur and business coach, dr. Robert zoellner, and he ussba entrepreneur of the year clay clark get ready to enter the thrive time show on talk. Radio 1170 cast of the box in the conversation is the drive time show on your radio. The show that’s all about you and specifically the entire reason why you’d want to build a successful company. Is it you have the time, freedom and financial freedom to do things that you feel called to do right at some point, the business is just a vehicle to get you where you want to go and so yeah thriver who emailed us a tough question is what are some of the beliefs that you have that most people think are crazy. I would just say overall, every belief. I have is kind of cultural. What pretty much every belief I have is countercultural, which is why my success is countercultural.
I mean everything that I believed in do is very eccentric, because the centric isn’t working. This did the centric. The average american spend $400 save the average american according to gallup 70% of 70% and shuffle put the notes on their 70% of people according to gallup hate, their jobs, 77 out of 1000, the majority of of married americans report not having a happy marriage. The majority of americans have less than $400 saved I love, my wife I love, my job, I love the people I work with cuz I do stuff like fire customers that are antagonistic fire. Employees are antagonistic, i, don’t put up with people that don’t share my values. My businesses are closed on friday, saturday and sunday for thrive, because I want my business coach team to have that time. We do get to work. Lol times at 4 a.M. We have a workshop once a month that we often don’t charge for people. Can we give us a review to when I get her but a chance to attend? We do it unbelievable amount of volunteer hours is a team meeting about their basic working at a workshop for you in many cases, without compensation, if they want to help you I might bring my kids to work everyday I’m obsessed with america i, believe the constitution is a great document. I believe that independence requires individual responsibility, I believe and the constitution believed in our country, I believe very strongly in a strong military, a big stick. You won’t have to use it, hopefully
I believe in the bible to be a literal infallible word of god I said a lot of police are leaving like homeschooling i. Don’t know that, there’s much that I believe everyone else believe. So that was just give me that the top five here, okay, so that the final for the final two moves that I dumped out two things I believe the brave few other people believe he is for it’s not about my 4th id. It’s not about ideas. It’s about the execution of ideas to your big new business ideas. It’s great, but it’s a joy. It doesn’t matter, I mean it’s kind of it’s like it. It’s just the beginning, point ii ii believe I want to share with you that, for the final belief is, if you are lazy, you’re worse than an unbeliever in god’s eyes, so wake up and decide to live before you die and that’s a pretty harsh thing to say so. I thought you probably give me some bible verses to 1st timothy 5:8 states. Anyone who does not provide for the relatives, especially for their household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. Did you check your check that, like you’re worse than an unbeliever, if you don’t have a job, yes get to work, you lazy, ass, get up, go, get a freaking job, go start sweeping the sidewalk. Get your ass up, get a job, I’m, not kidding! That’s a problem! The second verse you right back to you, john proverbs. Those who work their hand will having a bunch of food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense. I guess I need to interpret i. Don’t that mean the third one diligent hands will rule but lazy inns in forced-labor proverbs, 12:24, proverbs, 14:23, bible verses. It’s all hard. Work brings a profit, but merely talk leads to poverty, so I’m going to have a cluster crazy I’m going to see you at the drive time. She works out on friday, but now i, literally at this very moment, have to leave right now trip to take my son and watch my daughter’s compete in a cheerleading event, which I’ve been told. My wife is not gymnastics. Negotiable, guys take the business coach charge, hopefully things don’t blow up just a second ago.
I truly believe that god has created us to. You know, serve others and actually work and do things every person I know that he is actually doing something that they can use their time, that that god has gifted them with and give him a desire to do that they love their life. They love doing it, one of the ones that I meet that don’t have any type of like focus or purpose, and they want something handed to them for free they’re. Very, very sad, they’re, not happy, there’s a guy that I trained puppy 15 years ago, military guy, a veteran guy, and he is on disability now, but he was here. He was I saw him at walmart and I said:hey how you been haven’t, seen you in forever he’s like I hate you or what? What’s going on now in a wheelchair, well I’m on disability, now I’ve got this really great idea. He got all excited about. It told me about his idea:cuz he can do this computer thing. It can help all these people and he thinks he can make good money, but he’s afraid he’ll lose his $1,500 disability check and I’m like who cares? It’s actual disability check his left him in a spot. Where he’s not going to prosper. That’s like who cares about the disability check. Go. Do that you’re, so smart you’re, so skilled you’re, so driven go. Do that and it’s kind of soap. My whole thing is people that generally work have a job or happier and the people that don’t are unhappy, and so, when you know that your serve the god is giving you your the skill, the skill set for disability any syrup. You actually love your life, you love what you do and you get compensated for it, because god created us to sir I got on a roll right now, I love. What you’re doing I want to ask you a question as a fitness expert. So let me know we’re talking about if you’re lazy you’re worse than an unbeliever okay, what are some just quick tips? You can give somebody that maybe they’re feeling lazy eye I believe that I could be wrong. You tell me if I’m wrong, but your diet, your sleep patterns, your exercise, what you do really does all add up to the amount of laziness you have in your life.
So do you have any tips you can give people at the way I feel like man. I am kind of that lazy. Guy was some things that you found in your life that you had clients do that you can see man I’ve got energy levels now actually feel like getting up and doing this stuff as a trainer. Your kind of like a life coach right and what you have to do is kind of prioritize and time block each person’s life. So every 3 hours in person today I’ll tell him to say we have to eat every 3 hours. You got six meals a day and every 3 hours. You put all your events in between that. Your life now revolves around you:nutrition, plan., to, apex, 24, hour fitness. In esm, cooper institute I got eight national certification as a trainer and certified dietary guidance in nutrition. It mean anything and every place you look around the country says 70 to 80% of your success is dictated by what how you eat and also to mental clarity, focus drive, energy all comes to fuel and so I said number one. If this is the first thing, prepare the meals tonight before the pair, the meals you’re not going to have something will screw up your day. But if you got all your meals, you got three meals pack, you got two shakes packets in a lunch container trade to go you wake up in the morning. You grab it out of there and you’re ready to go. You got all your food plan for the day you’re under $10 to $12 a day for your whole day suit. That’s good! So that’s set up for success, so preparing meals at night, the night before, and then everything the hours you’re sliding in your time blocking all your tasks. Now before you go to bed every night, you got your food plant. You got to work out, set up and got all your event set up. Every 3 hours or fuels write your ears, you try everything, you’ve now mastered and so I’ve trained over 5,000 business coach clients in my life I told me exactly what to do. What time to do it, how much water to drink time block it with him walking through give him a day-by-day journal that I hold him accountable, I sign for every day and every other day we meet and I go through that. So when you take full control, say hers it or how about you just keep doing what you’re doing on your own or you give me the driver seat. Give me know:what’s what’s Happening:i’m a self-made millionaire in my early twenties doing fitness. Okay, nobody gave me money right now, live it breathe it and I tried it. I love it, and so, when I can take, somebody can coach him through the next 6 months. It was 50 60 lb in the best shape of their life. Right, that’s awesome, and then they also say when I’m trying to help him make better life choices and so, like the word, righteousness right right choice living like to work right, choice living what is a healthy? No, you got to say the healthy nose in life to so many things. So you get to say the healthy. Yes, as in life and I lived in $115,000 house for 15 years and I’ve built bought, bought almost at your house, so I went from $115,000 and it’s because of delayed gratification to do that kind of thing and you never get there at 1:40 hour work week, you’re never going to get there.
You know you know having some hope agreement, not taking action, but god has created to serve and it the more that you serve with you. What you believe that you’re passionate about you can work more than 40 hours a week and you get excited about anyone at grind on it speaking to take an action. Drive nation we’ve got four ways:we can help you right. We got the podcast, we’ve got the online business school, we have the in-person workshops and we I want to come up this friday and saturday so get those tickets. If you haven’t got them, we’ve got a couple spots left for making some extra room so well, and we have the in person one-on-one business coaching as the fourth way so charles any parting. Last words about 15 seconds. What’s your one thing take action:how do you? How do you make this up to? You doesn’t listen to this business coach? If you feel like a little tug on your heart, you know to say:hey ty I probably really need to surround myself with that time. So it’s basically you’re going to say:go there to sign up, get going to get going okay and on that 3 2 1 boom
