Are you ready to be entre Vied? Let's break free of the life we're told to live, create freedom and well, by adding value to others live challenge traditions, challenge authority and get entre fied. Hi, guys. This is Jeff. I'm here with Patrick. We're gonna be doing our podcasts or not. Argue Patrick. Pretty good, Pretty good. I'll tell you what. We've got an entertaining show today. I don't think that there's gonna be a lot of different points, but one of the things that I wanted to talk about with you tonight is making sure you're being you. In other words, you're not just going through the motions and trying to be somebody else and tryingto convince yourself that I You've got to be a certain type of person because you see somebody that you look up to. What I'm trying to tell you is it's being authentically you because what it comes down to is those are the moments that you're gonna be hack. Those are the moments that you're gonna remember when you're authentically you in your life. You're not trying to be fake, and you're not trying to, you know, do something else. Somebody else is doing. You find out who you are and that's who You baby, that's how you be. That's who you are, uniquely. So what I'm saying is is God made you the way he made you your unique And you know, there's a reason you're who you are. So don't try to be somebody else trying to be the best version of yourself. What do you think about that, Patrick? Yeah. I mean, some people, some people like to like to put, like, the watch other people and really try to become them, mimic them. That's okay. You know, that's okay. If you're if you have a mentor and you're inspired by them, and you're like, Oh, you know, I'm gonna I'm gonna pick up that habit, that habit, you know, the positive habits. But you gotta be careful because you can also pick up the negative habits people too. But you want to be arsenic, and so so it's kind of a tricky rope there, But what I see is to be truly authentic is you have a mentor, somebody that you look up to and then you picked one or two gold nuggets, and then you build that into yourself, and then that creates a little off the authenticity. You're not just some guy mimicking somebody else, and, um, that way you can become more complete, you know? Yeah, I can see that. The the next point I wouldn't want to talk about which kind of goes with it is have a mission in your life for the things that you won't accomplish. I mean, you know, it's kind of like if you're gonna go through your life and you're not gonna have a plan, you're not gonna have a mission that you just don't accept what shows up. So I'm telling you, in your life, in my opinion, will you get out there in your day? Make sure that you're packing it with with productive work, But make sure you haven't fun. You know what I'm saying? And being you, in other words, not somebody else like I said earlier. But the next thing is is have a mission on what you want to get done. Yeah, and thinking she want to do in life, don't just show up and wait for life to be okay. What's gonna happen today, You know? I mean, I think you get a lot more out of life if you push laugh and what I mean is is you have an agenda. You want to get things done or you have something that you know. You have focused. Oh, you know, And you know pretty much what you want in the day. And if you have that, then you can work towards something, you know, And I think you could accomplish a lot more If you don't mean that, then you just count are waiting to see which shows up. Also, if you don't direct your day, there will be somebody there that's trying to trick for you. And you know, you better have a good excuse this time. Why you can't, uh, do the things that they want you to do or you wind up just doing what everybody else wants you. So make sure that you have a mission. And I'm not talking about just in your day, I'm talking about pretty much everywhere that's important to you. You know, every area of your life. I've talked about this before, but if you get to the point or you you know who you are, you know what I'm saying. you don't feel like that. Your rush. You don't have to be to meet this goal and meet this going meet that ago. If you know who you are and you're comfortable in your own skin, you know, and you can have these goals that you work towards, then success just pretty much takes care of itself. If you keep moving forward, that's the key. Guys is always keep moving forward. I don't feel like I've arrived. I think there's a lot of different things that I have accomplished. There's a lot of things that I haven't accomplished it. But what I can say is, as long as you know where you're running, you have a direction, and as long as you're moving forward, you're not moving backwards. So make a focus, have a mission. But BU don't get to the point where you feel like you've got to copy people and you've got to be, Oh, you gotta be this person because that's how that's how so that's what success is. This person does it better than anybody in this area. It's good to see what you can learn from equal, but in the end it's about you. You're not going to remember all that stuff. You're gonna remember the moments that you had fun, that you enjoy that you accomplished your mission. You know, those are the things that you're gonna look back on. And I was thinking about that today, Patrick and I'm a little bit long winded. So look over me tonight. But I was thinking about that today, 20 years ago, which I'm older now. I'm in my forties, so you know, you don't run scared or anything. I've lived a little bit, but not a lot of really, really long time. But like some people, which is nothing wrong with that is, you know, the alternative. The not living long is dying, and I don't want to die right now. Do you, Patrick? No way. We're live a little while, so getting older is a good thing. And if you could be a healthy in the process, that's a really good things. Well, I think that sometimes, but moving on, I was thinking about today, you know, 20 years ago, what was important to me, you know, and really a little bit further down and drilling down, knowing what I know. Now, what would I have done different. That was a really hard question for me because looking back, man, it's really, really tough even now. I mean, things worked out, you know, a lot better than what I thought that they would, and that's good that it did. But I think what would I have done different? And I really think what I would have done is, I think I would have tried to learn a little bit more in school and, you know, become more educated because I think that vestments in your staff is one of the most important investments that you could make. But I can't find a lot of things that I would have done different. You know, I think back on it. I think, you know, Hey, you know, things worked out good. But if I had to put little like one little thing off the top of my head, that would be I'd probably be my 1st 1 is I would try to be a little bit more educated. Uh, what's your thoughts on that, Patrick, I know you're younger than I am, but have you ever considered that looking back? Um, what you would have done Yeah, um, I would say that there's I think that you always hindsight is always 2020. I like that saying a lot because looking back, everything's always crystal clear. Um, earlier, I was listening to something, and I heard that this pretty funny saying, um, it's hard to see. It's hard to see the picture when you're in the pic when you're in the picture like it's hard to see the preacher, the whole picture when you're inside of the pictures. So as faras, anything I would probably change. Um, yeah. I mean, there's always things. I think I'd go back and try to alter and change, but, you know, just looking at where I am now on where I'm going, I think I think I would leave everything to sing because I think it's not about you know where I am right now. I think it's where I'm going. I think my trajectory is really solid, and I don't doubt that all my failures and bad experiences will, you know, eventually pay off because I learned from them various things. And so I think that I think that the negatives, if I was to go back and fix all the negatives. All my life would be positive up until this point. And if I had a bad day, tomorrow would probably destroy me because I've never extremes the negative in my life. So I think it's okay to leave. Something's messed up. Something's not done because I guess that's what makes you unique. That's what makes you think, Nick. And that's what makes you you. No, I talked with one person the other day and we was talking about, you know, going back and changing things, and, you know, and this is a conversation me and this person's had before And he said, You know, if I changed anything, A wouldn't be where I'm at today, you know, I may not have the anyway. He went into specifics, and I don't want to go into his life because I don't know how much he would want to share, But I will say this. He was basically saying that he didn't want change anything because it might change something that he really wanted in his life right now. And I can kind of see that, you know? So I mean, sometimes looking back, you can get a lot from that. But you know, a lot of people said We wanna look back. I don't think if I don't think you should really look back on a lot of things unless you can learn from it. But after you go through and you live a little while, you know, 10 20 years, you know, if your forties, you know, sometimes as long as you can keep perspective, I think it makes sense to look back because there are some things that you can learn. I mean, I have material in certain areas. Like I said, I don't feel like I've arrived. But I can tell you one thing. The person that I was when I was in my twenties, in my thirties, I definitely I'm not that person today and it doesn't mean it's bad. It's just different. As time goes along, we change. We think different. We learn, we get experience. Experience is important. There are other things that are important as well. But there is no doubt in my mind that I probably will not be the person that I am today when I'm 50 or 60 or 70 because I'm coming from a different perspective. But I want to move on from it. Let's cover the couple things that I've talked about here and that Patrick's talked about, you know, making sure you have a mission. Okay, that's very important. Making sure that you are a thin ical you and you're not just copying somebody else. You know, it's very important that you're authentically you because that sounds strange to say, doesn't it authentically you? Because in the end, in the end, in your life, you know, really, it's not gonna be all about your success. Looks like it's gonna be Was I truly me? And did I get my mission accomplished? Because if you was just copying somebody else, I just really don't think that's where you find happiness. It's a two. It's a resource to become better, but ultimately it's to make you better to make you a better you. You know, you're attracted to certain things, but just make sure that you're you're still being You know, I'm harping on this tonight, but it's so important, you know. And the next thing that's important is make sure every day that you have fun built into it. That's so important. I mean, I see that day in and day out. But it's so often that we forget that we get so in. We're either in this thing like we're all these extreme states, Patrick, we're either gotta go. Gotta go. Gotta go. Gotta go. Which is productive, productive, productive or were in Oran rest mo We all we gotta rescue. Chill out. We're gonna have, you know, But there's never this time where you're enjoying every moment that you have that balance in your life where you're you have stacked fooling in your life in every day unless they never moments fun. Okay, but what I'm saying is is you take a balanced approach to your days into your life. You look at it is hey, there certain things in my life that I've got to do. Let's let's Cypher, you know, I have a job, you know, And I have Patrick, you have your job. You have your job. So we have certain things that we do and have to do every day. You know, whether you're financially independent or not, whether you could retire whether you couldn't, whether you have a job, you know, because you want to or whether you have a job because you have to. You know, I mean, whatever the case is in those two scenarios there, what I'm saying is is generally to be productive and to be happy in life, you've got to be productive, because ultimately, I think if you're not, I just don't really think that that ends in a really good place. I think you'll find yourself possible. Really depressed. So let's take it back to your work day. There's days that you're gonna have that better. There's days that you're gonna have. That's not, you know, as good as yesterday, for instance. But making sure in those days did you take those moments of breaker you know, you think Look, look, this dude is gonna pass. It may be just something that you don't really like doing what you say. You know what? I'm gonna knock this thing out. I'm gonna go into the next thing, but I want you to stack those fun things in your life. I mean, you may be going through something. A transition period. You think? Oh, I gotta get through. This is gonna be a hard day, but make sure you have something to look forward to in your day, even if it's after work. Hopefully, it's during work, too. You got any insights on that, Patrick, and regards to your work left? I I mean, I think I think the most important thing is to have a life outside of work because a lot of people fail to do that. And, you know, I think that really hinders you. You because, you know, just be honest. Jobs are very, very risky. And people are like, What are you talking about? Well, if you get fired to model, you just lost 100% of your primary income stream. What's this? Oh, you're right about that. Yeah. If you only have one income stream, your it's over, it's game over. So you should be spending. You know, you should have a plane outside of a job because the job isn't the be all Indo. And ah, So having that second idea 1/3 idea, whatever. Having multiple revenue streams is definitely a big factor. I mean, I I love stocks. That's my that's my, you know, huge secondary income stream. And I know that I've been investing in space companies and I mean she's been astronomical. These past few months. Actually, yeah, I just completely blew the lid off this past two months off one. It's just crazy how it can happen. And so having a secondary income stream will get you things like, you know, pay off debt quicker. Uh, get a second house, third house quicker, having multiple flows of income that aren't necessarily tied to your time. I think that's another important thing you think about like the stocks. That's not tired of my time. I couldn't leave it alone. Let it go. And, uh, that's what I did in the two months later, I'm like, Whoa, Oh, that's crazy. And, um so yeah, that's I think that's important is to outside of work, have a different location. You know, that's where you're talking about school, college, technical school. I think a lot of people overlook technical and vocation trades because I'm gonna make episode on this later. But there is a study about plumbers, and, you know, a plumber actually makes more than a lawyer, and it's hilarious. So starting out the plumber obviously is gonna be making Maur because there's a lot you have to start at the bottom. But the plumber He's already doing pretty good and the butter actually stays on par with a lawyer. So, you know, people underestimate those things. I know a guy, my uncle, he he built a shed. And he does. I think, I think, like gutter work. He does some kind of work. He like Weld stuff on the weekends, and he's making killing just a killing. And I think, like I said, it's very important to have something else because, you know, you're building when you work a job for somebody else. You're basically putting a ladder up against the law, and there may not be a wall there when you get to the top or you may be climbing it and somebody push you off right in the middle of it, because they just say, Hey, we don't need you anymore. You're laid up and that could happen tomorrow. It's nothing is guaranteed people. People think they're safe and secure in their jobs. They don't They don't realize that they're not at all. I mean, is really risky, extremely risky, and you don't have anything to lose per se as faras like you're not gonna lose money if you lose the job well, technically one long run. But you know, like a business. You put money up front, hopefully make money later. Like said, hopefully it. So it's a little bit riskier and scarier about with a job. You just put time up front toe, hopefully get compensated later. And so you just have to kind of you have to realize that there, you know, when you're when you're working towards, you know, whatever goals dreams you have. If you just put all your eggs in one basket and you drop that basket, it's over. So that's what I think about that. That's a lot of good information there and and we could parlay into that. Maybe will take just a moment to do that here in just a few minutes, I got a couple more points and we'll get into that. Maybe some income generation possible ideas that I've done. Um, and the Patrick's been in the stocks and things like that. I've been more into the rental properties of different things and I'm kind of actually thinking about going in a different direction now, which is I'm not against the rental properties and I still do that. But it's just I'm ready to go into a different section of that Possibly, um, and I'm looking more into that. Maybe we could talk a little bit more about that, but briefly, I said, We'll talk about later. Let me briefly talk about it, and then we can go more into it, Possibly in this podcast. We'll try not to hold you too long, guys. But I think there's a difference between, uh, income long term income versus income that you can get to pay off debt now or reinvest. Let me explain that right fast. So real properties depend. Opponent your cash flow. Positive cash flow A via some people, Uh, explain if you've got a lot of cash. You buy this. You could make, you know, a certain percentage every year, possibly if everything goes well, and you know you do fairly well. But if you keep buying properties, keep buying properties. If you're going to the bank and get Matt and using collateral or you're putting 20% down or there's several different things, I'm sure that you can do I generally to put 20% down, right use collateral. But, uh, those are the two main areas of the day, but they're really long term money. You know, they're not something that really pays off right now, especially if you got debt with the bank. If you are, you know that free. And you can buy these properties. You obviously, most of time, you're gonna make Maur return on your investment. You have that cash to put toward that. But you know, people have different ideas on this, but I think there's a point that you reach and this is you know, this is very is one of these things that people don't necessarily agree on. Okay, But I think there's a point where you start looking at these properties is long term. You get so many of them, you're like, you know what? For a while, I'm done with this. I'm ready to start flipping properties. I'm ready to, you know, start generating income. That's quicker because you can take a police property, possibly. And I'm not saying possibly because there's a lot of different things that you have to factory. You have to factor in for one. Knowing what you're doing, you have to know that the properties under value, you have to know how you can get the construction help at a good price, good quality and be able to turn around and flip it. You've got to know that the area to make sure that ah, you know, you're building an area that has value, that it is perceived as a location that people want to be in. There's a lot of different things that Geoff factor in there. But what I'm getting at is you can possibly take a piece of property like that, build it up and then sell it for a profit. Really quick. You take that profit, possibly reinvested in, do the same thing over and over and over. But Reynolds is a little bit different. You buy a piece of property if you got it with bank and you let it pay off over time, and then as you are as you pay that off, you know, then possibly you're making more money. But it's years sometimes if you just pay the minimum. So I say I was briefly going to get into this, but it seems like I've just went right in the rabbit hole here. But what I'm getting that is is for me, where I'm at right now, I think I would rather just try something a little bit different because I'm kind of bored of the rails. You know, I've done this for a while. I enjoy it, but, ah, I have a different slant on it than some. I mean, I actually like that put value into my properties. And I'm not just, you know, trying to get everything from the person I'm written from, you know are written to, But I actually tried to put value in the properties for that. If I need to get out of him, I can turn around and selling, probably for more than what I paid for him. So it's kind of like a double win. You know, if I want to rent and I make money that away, if I ever decide I want to get out of it, I put so much value into this property that I possibly can turn around and sell it for a profit. So I've got an out. Always leave yourself now. That's just Ah, um what I think. But what I was getting that was I'm trying to move in the direction of keeping what I have. It just trying something You, in other words, going and building, putting value into these houses in the trying to sail wanted and trying to move up that away. I've had a lot of success with the Reynolds and I enjoy it, but I'm kind of tired of it right now. And I mean, Patrick, I think I don't know you. We've talked about this here recently or not, but that's kind of the direction I'm headed right now is um, looking into that in the next year or so of just trying todo into that direction? I think I get bored, was certain opportunities, and I just kind of let him stay there and pay their self off. And I may come back to what your thoughts on that Well, I mean, I know that, um, I know there's different kinds of investors in stock market. There's three ways you can deal in stocks. That's you could be a day trader. You know, you with stock for a couple of minutes, Thio couple hours. But you never go to sleep with it. And there's the swing trader you know, to stock for two days. The two weeks, two months, uh, and you generally sell before a year in the news. The long term, you know, buy and hold forever. Kind of guys like Warren Buffett. And I feel like when you deal with the real estate, you know that that Warren Buffett, by hold forever mentality kind of falls into the rental properties. Uh, and that's you know, obviously, I think that all three strategies air good. You just have to pick one and master it. Um, and I know that myself personally. I'm the best. That swing trading. I like to hold something for two months, and then that's it. I'm like, All right, See you. I just you know, I'm just too like, like, for example, the space stock I had. I took profits on it today. I sold it, and then I just use that money to reinvest in other areas and other investments ahead. And then I just reinvested about 50% of it and other, you know, stocks. So I feel like I feel like one problem people have, and I have it myself, is you? Let's say you get a really good hit. You get a really great deal, you know, really great house. That's worth 100 grand and you pay 30. I mean, it's a sweet deal and, you know, obviously you can hold it and collect rent forever from it, and that's a great idea. But at the same time, I feel like people are afraid to take profits because they're afraid. Once it take profits, they won't find another opportunity like that opportunity. So true. That is so true. Yes, and it's it's scary, and I live that life all the time. The You know, I the stock I had. It's been a 300% in three months and you know, you don't even know what to do at that point. You're like, What I this and you know, I heard it said that You okay, when you when you make a lot of money, you feel pressure. But when you lose that same amount of money, let's say you have $1000. Let's say you make $1000 so you make $1000. It's a lot of pressure and stress, but when you lose that $1000 it's twice the amount of pressure and stress is making it so for people to to to make money and sell at the top. That's one of the most disciplined in difficult things to do, because if you have a house like I said, that's worth 100 that you get for 30 and the house market crashes next year, too. I don't know. 30. You missed your opportunity to sell high and make a nice profit and reinvest in something else. But at the same time, if you want a weather the storm and hold it, it'll probably bounce back up to 100 or whatever. But I just I just meet personally. I am. I'm the swing trader. You may be the daily guy. You may be the guy who's constantly, you know, flipping houses, mind the house. Flipping it are, you know, Dylan and host cell contracts, or you made the B the go by the whole forever. But nothing is important to identify what you're the best at and trying to stick with it because I've tried all three styles and the bind hold forever is just boring. Like you're talking about houses may so boring. It's like watching paint dry and, you know, I I remember somebody one time asked me. They said What What? When do you take profits? And I was like, Well, you know what? When do you take profits? And it's like when you're in that mentality of you, Ambassador Reinvesting Best Revis You never take profits. And so you know, I saw that as a day trader. It's very stressful. You constantly trading constantly, trading constant, watching your almost obsessive over it. And there's a lot of risk and stuff, and it's like, Wow, that's crazy. But it with the swing trader, it's kind of like to me, it's like a boxing match, you know? Ah, boxing match doesn't last forever last 10 rounds and you have, you know, you're looking for an opening, a sweet spot. You're throwing some jabs, you're getting some hits. You finally land the haymaker and ko the guy. And that's what I think to me is the swing trader is. I'm holding some for a couple months and I'm getting rid of it. So I guess you could equate that to somebody that flips houses. I guess that's kind of what I like to do, because and another thing I like to think about it is buy sell high. I feel like that is something or by high, so higher. I've been trying that, and it's hilarious because let's say you go into a market like Nashville, Tennessee, where I live in in the market. Housing market is crazy, hot, crazy, hot and let's say it's a hot. I don't know how hot it is specifically, but I know is really, really hot. So let's say you come in here, you find a deal, and it's really it's really expensive. Make 2 to 300 grand for a house and you pick that house up and you flip it for 3 50 or 400 in the next couple of months because I find that in my experience in the midterm, which is where I like to stay is in the middle. Not too long, not too short. I find in the middle for myself that if I find something that's hot, that's on fire, if I can pick it up and just touch it for a few minutes, it'll boost. It'll keep going up. It'll keep going up like like I said, this space stock. I bought it $7 today it hit $38 I kept buying as it kept going up and my money just kept going up. And it was astronomical because the moment, um I think it's important you have to have two factors to be to have a successful mo mentum trade because that's one of the trade my mental to have a successful mo mentum trade in written housing stocks. Whatever you're doing in, you have to spot mo mentum and how you do that as you look at the volume. So if there's 10 million people trading the stock on average, and today they're 70 million people and it's going up, then that should be all I'll go for you to be like, You know what? That's probably going to keep blowing up. Oh, sorry. And this woman factor If it breaks the record over the past 52 weeks, it's a new year high, and I know I'm kind of getting into specifics, but that's that's just some of the stuff that I like to do is just That's much that's my thoughts on that. I don't I don't like to do the long term, so I agree with you there on the long term kind of four. Let's just make sure that everybody understands you're not giving stock advice or anything like that. But now definitely that's that is not what is what I mean, you know, because I know a lot of people made. They may not like that kind of thing. So I think he's more or less telling about his strategy of how he does things. But it's I don't think it needs to be taken, is he's given it by some that, but a SZ faras the rental thing you mentioned something on, you know, the two factor, you know? I mean, I think about which I come from the take field. You know, when I'm in the tech field right now, so you know, you talk about two factor authentication and things like that. So when you say to factor, that's one of the things that comes to my mind. But with to factor in regards to having, uh, like Reynolds and stuff like that. You know, if you have your primary income and you have like rentals, too, that's paid off over time. That's kind of like two ways that you're generating money now. You know, if you have a multi factor type of thing which were talking a little bit of tech things now, which you know most of the factors. A lot of a lot more than just two. It's a lot, you know, Could be just could be three or more or something like that. But what I'm saying is if you have multiple ways to congenital rate income and Patrick mentioned something like this before, you know, if you just relying primarily on your income, you know there's a problem. Possibly with that, because if you lose that ink, what are you going to do? And a lot of people said, Well, I've got you know, my accolades or I've got my education. You know, I've got that to fall back on. And if you know that's up to you, you know you can go that way. And I don't, uh, say that it's wrong. It's definitely good to have a education. But if you have some stuff on the side, such as Reynolds or some other investments that's making you money, you know, I wouldn't it be in a good position where you didn't have to work. You just looked looked at it from the standpoint of hey, your answer that awful quickly back. But where you didn't really have to work, you know, I mean, when you get to that point and I'm not saying I really arrived at that, I mean, I think that you know what? I don't want to get off into that, whether I could or whether I could. Ah, but what I want to say is, I hate to talk about, you know, my finances and things like that. I don't really like to get into that, because I mean, a lot of things is it's hard to predict the future. It really is. And there's a lot of things that you just never know about your health and things like that. And a lot of people that get into the situation where they think Oh, well, I could just make it. I'm fine. You know? You don't even know what you're tomorrow holds. I don't care who your you could be a Megan er, a billionaire. It could be walked out in a day, a day either. I will be, I don't know. You could get sued. You could. I mean, you know, you could you could lose a lot of stuff I don't know if you could lose a $1,000,000,000 I thank you. Good. My point is what I'm getting that is his life is not guaranteed. Guys, you do the best that you can do. But I want my great back into, uh, what I was talking about before we talked about a lot about the riddles and the flipping and things like that. And I think it's important to have an investment strategy, in my opinion, you know where you're not dependent upon just one particular area, but it's also important, regardless, what you do that you enjoy your days. And that's one of the points that I wanted to talk. But I talked about building fund into your days, but I want to throw something else back at you here. How many opportunities have you lost that you could have had a joy? What I mean is, is, were those joy moments There was joy, specific times that you could have taken advantage of. But you mean it's because you was too busy, too stressed out to, you know, you had all this other stuff going on. Life consists of moments, and if you're always telling yourself that you're going to get there. You're gonna miss it. Because that's the thing You're never gonna get there. You have to be there. Now. You have to plan for the future. Yes. Have to have a mission for the future. Yes, you work toward it. You're moving forward to it. But you don't always. I mean, I'm not saying you arrive there tomorrow. Let me put it this way. I have a mission constantly moving forward, even if it's in a small way and then enjoy the moments the jury in because that may be all you get in your day. You know, I believe that when we lived this life, we go through this life, you know, we lay down our accolades, we die. Everybody does, you know. And I believe ultimately and me and Patrick's talked about this before. He knows how I feel. He probably knows what I'm going to say before I say the eternal things are what matters. Because one day you're gonna lay this down. You're gonna like everything that you've done down, and the eternal things is what matters. But in my opinion, when you're talking about your day and those moments in your day, you need to start stacking them full of things that you want to remember. You know, it's not about the destination. I'm telling you, because when you get there, the destination is gonna change. You're going to say, if it was a $1,000,000 for you, you're gonna go to take me. And if it I mean, if you said well, I want a big fine house paid off well, then you're gonna want cars and yachts, and who knows what else? My point is is it keeps changing. You've got to learn to appreciate and enjoy the moments that you're living today. That's really all that I have to say today. Patrick on this. But I wanted to make sure that people are looking at the moments of their life in the right frame. What do you think about that? Yeah, I agree. Think this, uh, really important that we we kind of like we talked about reflect, be authentic. Look back at moments of my life, see where we could have improved and ah, just keep keep going. Keep making logical choices one to the next. And, ah, like I said earlier, don't forget that you know your job. Whatever is not. That's not the only income stream you're gonna wanna have. You're definitely gonna have something else. So just keep that in mind. Guys, they say Listen to the show. Hope he enjoyed it.
