Success Fundamentals – w/Kris Sykes

Speaker 1 00:00:20 Everybody. Thanks for joining me on grind, sell and elevate. This is your host, Ty, and I’m here with Chris Sykes. Who’s a financial advisor and also he is the co-founder of a really awesome podcast. Success fundamentals. Thanks Chris

Speaker 2 00:00:34 Ties with, thank you for having me. I’m very excited to do this. Thank you again.

Speaker 1 00:00:37 Yeah, man. Well, I love for everybody listing. I was on Chris’s podcast with his co-host Brian and we had a beautiful conversation, so we definitely want to get him and his, his, his insight here on, uh, grind, sell and elevate. Chris wants you to introduce your self to everybody. Just a little bit about your background and what really inspired you to create a success fundamentals.

Speaker 2 00:00:56 100%. So, uh, originally I’m from Atlanta, Georgia, so I’m from the south. So you’re probably going to hear that accent come across. Sure. Um, and one of the reasons why we started the podcast is because, uh, what we wanted, we believe that everyone can lead a successful and fulfilling life is all depends about it all depends on what they want to do. Right. Um, and, but we didn’t want to just create another success show. We wanted to add additional value. So like, you’d like you did ties or you came on the show, you talked about the fundamentals of success in terms of how you, how you see fit and give people actual actionable items to go out and be successes in their own lives. But then also too, what we’re doing is we want to add value outside, outside, outside of the podcast. So what we currently are, what we’re going to do is we want to partner with like, um, clinical psychologists, because maybe it’s a mental blockage for people. Maybe they know what to do. Maybe they’re just afraid to take that first step. And we’re going to partner with, with, with psychologists and therapists companies. So they can have maybe, you know, two or three free sessions to kind of get them talking about why they can’t take that for steps. So we can add additional value to people who are trying to be successes in their own lives.

Speaker 1 00:02:07 Yeah. I love that. That’s so important because you know how many people just like consume personal development books, but then don’t take action and they don’t even have to think, understand why that’s, what I loved about your shows because you know, it’s just like, I was acquainted to sports, right? Like when you develop the fundamentals, you know, I told you guys, I was a basketball guy. Obviously didn’t work out for me going into James, go in the NBA. But like teaching my son, you know, what a jump stop is, you know how to pivot and what’s a bounce pass, what versus a chest pass and that’s all relatable to business. Um, yeah. What do you think, did you think it mostly is mindset that people have these blockages from something with childhood? Or what have you seen from people?

Speaker 2 00:02:50 I think it’s, I think there’s a couple of things I think, because you have to is, is two things. Actually one is a, could be a mental blockage, meaning that, you know, why is it that you think that, you know, that you want to become successful, but you can’t take that first step. And maybe that reason is because you may, you may not think that you’re worthy enough to become successful. Right? The other more real thing is, is very, is it almost like it almost comes across as the thing to say, like if somebody asked you, do you want to be successful in life in general? You’re not going to say no. Right? You’re not going to say, absolutely not. Do not want to be a success, but then your actions speak louder than your words. So you can say you want to become successful, but then do you really?

Speaker 2 00:03:36 Right? So like, so do you look in the mirror? Like, you know what, I I’m really okay. The middle-class mindset, right? Where you get to a place of comfort and you really don’t want to push yourself, but then see, and then you have to ask yourself, do you really want to become successful? How you, how you see it, maybe you don’t want to put in all that work because as you know, ties are, you, you have experienced in, this is hard work, becoming a success in whatever you’re trying to do. And most people don’t want to put forth that work, but mostly from work from our audience and what the response that we’re getting, they’re saying more so is here. Right? They don’t know why they don’t want to take that step because a lot of people talk about the success of failure. I’m at the failure. I mean, the, um, uh, the fear of failure, as opposed to the fear of success, maybe people have that going along too, you know, that if they do the right things and then you do things to self set to self-sabotage or stuff, you may take that journey. You’d be like, you know, you know what, I don’t think I’m worthy of it, that you just stopped doing whatever you’re doing. So that’s what I, that’s what we found.

Speaker 1 00:04:35 Yeah. That’s interesting. I love that you guys are, they take it to the next level of service, right. And helping people really start to, uh, hit some of those foundational pillars, you know, to come over those mental blocks because you know, it is going to be really tough to be tough work for a lot of people sometimes to, to get past those blockages. I think I said that a lot of times, I think we’re not always cognizant that they’re there for, from your own journey and what you developed. Um, you know, I know I said a little bit about you and Brian’s background, um, and how successful you are, uh, in conjunction with podcasting. What were the things that you found that you had to work on as far as your fundamentals that help you start to level up your game?

Speaker 2 00:05:15 Oh man. Confidence for sure. And being in, uh, being curious to be honest, because, um, from, from a park standpoint, Brian and I, before we met, we always knew that we wanted to do a podcast. One. We didn’t really know what about, to be honest. And then we met back in 2020, and we were just having a conversation that we hit it off in terms of like, cause we think that the exact same, we said, we said we should have just started a podcast and we didn’t even know on what we said, well, we were business owners, so we should maybe do it on business. But then we started thinking through what additional value can we just ha can we provide besides just talking about business? So then, okay. That’s but then actually that’s where the, that’s where the show really started. So we brought on successful people in business to talk to them about success.

Speaker 2 00:06:00 And then that was it. But we thought that we were a business podcast in the beginning a month or so ago, we realized we’re not in the business space, we’re in the self-help space because yet, and it was funny. Cause we were wondering why, well, even though we ascend it quickly in terms of listenership, it was very unclear what we were actually trying to do. Right. So it’s like, so, so we had a company, we had a strategy and like, what are we, what are we doing really? Like, we’re just bringing people home and talking to people and what else can we give the audience besides? Okay, Hey, they’re going to talk to this guy about, you know, his fundamentals of success and dah, dah, dah, dah. So we’re like, yeah, because there’s only so much value you can provide in the pot. And so we, so we had a conversation, it was like, oh wow, you can partner up with like a therapist shop one that we vet and say, listen, if you use our name, then you can go talk to someone.

Speaker 2 00:06:57 If you feel like you need to talk to someone around, why do you think that you’re not worthy of success? What’s that mental blockage talk it through, right? The first couple of sessions are on us. Right? So that’s additional value. We can net our audience in order for them to kind of break through. And then if we see we can help people with that mint, mental blockage. And it’s not just therapists because we have an idea where we’re going to partner with like life coaches in of like meditation people. Because if I think everything starts with here, if you don’t believe that you can do it, then you’re not going to do it. So we want to partner with people that do that so we can add as much value to the audience as possible.

Speaker 1 00:07:35 I love that. That’s true. It all starts, it all starts there, right? It’s always me versus me. 100%

Speaker 2 00:07:40 And

Speaker 1 00:07:41 Social media has got us so fucked up or we think it’s us versus everybody else. You know, we’re watching everyone, else’s highlight reel, not realizing that like we both could go create your own, You know? Um, I’m just curious from the guests you’ve had on you guys gotta have got, you know, um, quickly several episodes up and going. Um, has there been a common theme? I know yours is confidence, you know, which has really been a pillar for you, but have you seen another common theme of like, this is fundamental, maybe it’s, uh, maybe it is confidence. Maybe it’s, you know, great public speaker. Maybe it’s a certain type of routine that you see all these people you’ve had on kind of have together.

Speaker 2 00:08:20 Oh 100%. Uh, I think your, your, um, your show was very powerful. I can not wait to that airs. Um, based on what, what you spoke about, um, just doing the work dude, having a work ethic is one thing, a work ethic, meaning, uh, do the work where you are currently, right. Being thankful for that or, or just showing that you can, because my thing is, listen, let’s just say you work at some, a sale shop and you’re not the manager of this sale shop, but then, but since you are not the manager, you do a horrible job as a sales rep because you’re not doing what you want to do. There’s no way that you can ascend to another position. If you don’t do a great job in the position you are now, you may not where you, you, you may not be where you want to be, but you have to show not just to your, your boss or whoever or the university, or however you define that you got to do the work where you, where you’re currently at today and do a good job at that.

Speaker 2 00:09:23 So that’s all a door can open. So, because now you’ve proven, regardless of what happens to you, you’re, you’re willing to do the work, you know, without being, without, uh, having the position that you want today is everything is a step by step basis and everything has a journey. The other thing is patience is what we talk to our audiences about. Um, because as human nature wants things right now, that’s just human nature. Like we start, like when we go to the gym, we lift some weights, we take off our shirts and like, like I’ll have a six pack kit. So it’s like, it’s like, no, you can’t do that. If you haven’t worked out for 25 years, 30 minutes of working out, is it going to produce a six pack? Right. So you, you know, you have to, you have to be patient, you have to be willing to, um, go, uh, through that journey and the lessons and the gyms are in that journey. For sure,

Speaker 1 00:10:16 Man. Yeah. I love that. Uh, the patients is key because again, going back to social media, the way we’ve been conditioned, instant gratification with everything, you know, my kids flip out, they have to watch a commercial. They’re like, what’s this shit. You know what I mean? It’s just like, yeah, but that’s, that’s just the type of society we’ve evolved to. Right. Where it’s just like, you know, and then a lot of people fall for like the courses online where you can become a millionaire by, you know, doing this, this Amazon store in six

Speaker 2 00:10:44 Months. You’re like,

Speaker 1 00:10:46 That doesn’t happen at all. No, no, no. I mean, I wish it did. And then we’d all be millionaires. I’m going to get your perspective. Do you think that there’s a way for businesses to help foster kind of a different type of mentality of what you’re talking about? Um, you know, cause I, I heard a beautiful quote, right? You’ve probably heard this of, uh, it was a news and news. Um, uh, crew was at NASA and they were interviewing people and they stopped and they interviewed the janitor and they said, you know, what do you do here? And she said, I send people to the moon, but it was because she had a clear, defined mission of how she contributed to the overall arching organization. So I want to get your perspective if there’s a way you think that managers or leaders could facilitate people to instill more confidence or to do better work.

Speaker 2 00:11:35 I think if you’re running a company because I do this in my office, if you understanding what those person’s strengths are and because a lot of people say work on your weaknesses, I think that’s, you can do that to a degree, but you want to know, like if you’re running like a sales team, understand what everybody’s strength is and hone in on that strength, right? Because you can’t be good at everything right. Ties or you’re good at whatever you’re good at and what, and what you’re good at makes you actually great. Right? Cause if you can hone that skill, for example, let’s use basketball. Steph Curry, Steph Curry has literally ruined the game in a great way because he, because people now in regular high school, that middle school games are taking threes from like half court because he makes them look so easy. Yeah.

Speaker 2 00:12:25 So when I say work on your strengths, his strength was shooting as skinny as he is. He’s six, two. He’s not looked at typical basketball player. Who’s like 6, 9, 16. Yeah. His weakness as you’ve looked at him as a basketball player, there’s no way he can grow to 16. That’s just not going to happen. Right. You can’t, you can’t do that. Okay. So he’s not the best defender in the world. Right. At all. Like he hasn’t been on any Ted hasn’t been nominated on any defensive teams at all, but what can Steph Curry do that? Just drives people crazy. He can shoot the ball. There’s no, it does not a bad shot for stepfather, for Steph Curry. So he honed in on his shooting skill. Right. And now he’s literally the greatest shooter guy has ever created. Right. Cause he can shoot from everywhere. So tie that back into business.

Speaker 2 00:13:13 If you, if you’re running a business, what are your people’s strength then take? And actually, if you care about them, take a really good look at what they do. Well, hone in on that. And then wherever their weaknesses are, somebody else may be strong in and you can kind of create an efficient system like that. And in terms of, in terms of a messaging standpoint, understand what you actually do. Like, like you said, the, the person at, um, in NASA said that they, she sent people to the moon. There’s very, very clear that that’s what she, that’s what they do. Right? Yeah. Um, understanding what arena you’re playing in. And once you understand who you’re selling to or who you’re trying to acquire as a client or a customer, having that clue clearly defined to you, you can communicate that to your team and then you can see what you need from them. So you can con so that you can still have confidence in them because as you, as we, we realized, well, you don’t really know what you’re doing or sailing or whatever, whatever the case may be, your confidence goes, what you’re doing is like, yeah. What, like what are we doing? I have no idea.

Speaker 1 00:14:12 Yeah, no, that’s, that’s absolutely pivotal. And I think that, you know, to your first point, I think it’s mostly self accountability, but I do think there’s, there’s a way for companies to really kind of foster more of a mentorship within our organizations and a lot of people, um, miss, you know, I want to go back to something you said, uh, that was interesting. A key phrase self-worth, you know, and what are some things or tools or fundamentals you think people could instill to like lift that? Because I think that that’s why we talked a lot about the middle-class mindset, you know, I was on success fundamentals. And I think that so much of that mindset of settling comes from that lack of self-worth. And so how do you, how do you think people can kind of tackle that problem?

Speaker 2 00:14:59 I would say be grateful. So anytime you think that you’re not worthy discount your blessings in terms of like what your, what you can be grateful for. Like, for example, if you’re not where you want to be today, you know, you, you can breathe, you can see, you can hear you, you can function, you have reason you have the ability to change your life. Right? A lot of people, the human mind automatically goes to a negative thing. So, and not, and everybody is guilty of that, even me to be honest. Um, but then I got this thing from Steve Harvey that helps me out a lot. He told me to write a gratitude list, not me personally, but that’s what he, that’s what he said on one of his talks, you say, write a gratitude list. And he named Eve in the, in the, when he was talking to this crowd, he named off like 15 things you can be grateful for.

Speaker 2 00:15:52 Right. Without, and he’s, I don’t even know y’all, but this is what you can be grateful for. And you use that and you can, you can build so forth. They’re like, oh yeah, I do. I can do this. I can do that. Because you start thinking about who can’t think about people who are blind. People who can’t hear people who can’t speak people who doesn’t have reason. Right? So you have the ability to lift your self worth just by being appreciative and grateful for what you already have. And then that can change your whole dynamic on life. Now, now it’s not going to happen overnight. You got to continue to do that. It took me a while to just, okay, anytime I get down, I have the book my niece gave me right here and I have about like 36 things I’m to be, to not extraordinary things, just basic things that I can be grateful for, that lifts me and makes me feel good about myself and know that I have the power to change my life if I want to do that.

Speaker 1 00:16:42 Yeah, yeah. That, yeah. Thank you for sharing that. That’s beautiful. I’m glad you brought up Steve Harvey too. I had a fortunate chance to see him speak at a 10 X growth con and um, his story people don’t realize Steve Harvey was homeless until he was until he was 38, you know, put it in perspective. Like, you know, it’s never too late to start. I mean, he has a really, really beautiful story. Uh, really inspired, man. You know, it’s one of those guys that just stays out of the shit. He just uplifts people and wants to help and serve. And the fact that he, he always gives us talks at the end of his show, I think says a lot about who he is and how he wants to serve. So thanks for sharing that. Cause he’s, he’s a really cool dude. Um, well, how do you start to instill work ethic? You know, you’re busy guy, you’re running the podcast with Brian, you know, you’re working full-time as a financial advisor and you’ve got a family,

Speaker 2 00:17:33 Just me and my wife.

Speaker 1 00:17:36 That’s still work. Let’s be honest. Uh, you know, so it’s talks just about how do you implement your work ethic and how do you kind of balance that with everything?

Speaker 2 00:17:49 Man, I think work ethic comes from, it comes from a few things. I think that it all depends on June. Actually. I got my work ethic from my dad. My dad always told me if you, if your name is going to be attached to something, you don’t want somebody to pick up something you do and say Christie at that. And it’s like, and it’s like half ass. Right. Um, so I got that from him. Um, so I think that’s where self-worth comes from though, to be honest, because like, if you to instill a work ethic is to everybody is different, but I kind of, by talking to these, to these successful people, including including yourself, I think in work, you have to do something that you’re interested in because if you’re doing something that you’re interested in, you don’t really see that as work. Right.

Speaker 2 00:18:34 But not all people are fortunate to do what you’re interested in. So like, uh, I hate saying the word hack, but what I say, um, if you’re trying to do that, if you’re currently stuck in, in, in a place where you don’t really like doing what you’re doing, what you can do is do the work that you don’t like to do it faster to go do things that you actually like to do, right? Because if you drift, they like, for example, if you work for, if you work, if you do a nine to five, maybe you can, I don’t know how it works now, but if you do it like a nine to five, maybe you, if you can get your work done early, you may can leave a few minutes early to kind of work on things that you, you want to do. So use what you want to do as the motivation to do your work well. So you can go on and, you know, put that your real work ethic into something that, that you actually want to do, you know, outside of what you’re currently doing. I think that that’s, that’s, uh, another thing, but I think a lot of that comes from so forth to be honest, because if you don’t, a lot of people are just floating through life really, and being 100% and that, and that, and that affects the work. Yeah.

Speaker 1 00:19:43 I totally agree. I mean, it’s, it’s, you know, it’s, uh, it’s just one of those things where people are like, oh, well, it’s easy for you to say, you know, you’re here now. Right. You’ve arrived. And, um, I did a video, I don’t know, maybe two months ago. And I talked about where I was 10 years ago and I talked about where I was 20 years ago, you know, I’m 37 at 17. Uh, you know, I was just getting ready to graduate high school. When I graduated high school, I had to work two jobs through college. I was working for a chiropractor and I worked in a lumber yard. I mean, you know, we all start somewhere. So like, I mean, I, you know, I know what you do, but like where were you 10 years ago? And talk to us a little bit about that. You know, what’s been your journey.

Speaker 2 00:20:24 I could tell you this for sure. Um, and, uh, hopefully that we can speak on this because your, your mom’s journey is one of the best things I’ve ever heard in my life. Seriously. Like it made me want to work even harder when I, when I heard that, to be honest. Um, but before I was, I was a financial advisor I worked with at and T and uh, before at and T right out of college, uh, I graduated in 2012. So out of college, um, no, it was, nobody was, was really hiring. And, uh, I, um, I worked at game stop for literally, it wasn’t even like a full shift, really. So I worked at game stop and I’m like the, the manager they will, if, if it was like from one to six, I, Hey, Chris, we have, you know, five hours would you want to just come and work?

Speaker 2 00:21:12 So I was like, oh my God, can I believe I went to college, I played collegiate football and now I’d even go to functions. Really, if I’m being honest, I didn’t go to functions at all because I didn’t want people to ask me, you know, oh man, you know, you, you were as a collegiate athlete and now you graduated, what, what, like, what’s your career path? What are you doing? And I said, well, you know, I work at game stop, you know? And I was like, yeah, I didn’t want to go. I don’t want to face that to be honest, which is really not anything to be embarrassed about. That that was just my pride at, at that time. Then I got a job with, at and T I started off as a retail sales consultant and I work my way up after like a year and a half, I got promoted to assistant manager.

Speaker 2 00:21:50 And after a year there, I got promoted to a retail account executive, which I’ve managed 20 stores. So that was fun. Um, and I hated my job, but it was fun to kind of like progress in that way. And then, uh, back in January of 2017 is one I w cause I’ve always been interested in two things, business and finance, um, and a financial advisor that allows you to do that. It allows you to put your, apply your business skills, which is what your, your financial skills to build a practice. Um, so I started, uh, working as a financial advisor in April of, uh, no officially August of 2017. Um, so that’s been like my journey. And then I got hired with, as a financial advisor in Atlanta, Georgia in April and in may of 2017, no, April, I got hired may. I’m studying for my, my licenses.

Speaker 2 00:22:45 And then June, I decided to move to a place where I have no connections. Uh, I moved to New York city and, uh, that was fun. So I didn’t have any connections. I came to a place where I did not know anybody. And then I’m going to start this financial planning practice in the financial sector, like in the, in the, in the financial capital of the world. So that was, that was a journey, which at the time when I first started, uh, I literally was knocking on doors in Brooklyn. I would like go to like these areas and this knock on doors and let people know what I was doing in the area. That was, that was fun. Uh, not really, but it was, it was, it was, it was an experience for sure.

Speaker 1 00:23:28 It was a fundamental, right. I mean, it’s like, whereas I want you to share a stories because it’s, I think it is so relatable to why, uh, you started success fundamentals, you know, we all start somewhere, you know, mine was in a lumberyard, same thing as you, uh, you know, I’m a little bit older. I graduated in 2007 from college. That was a bit of a shit storm. Then not good time to go out to the job market and be like, Hey, I got this degree. Nobody cared. You know, millions of people were losing their homes. And so I ended up at enterprise Rent-A-Car here. I am in all this debt five years after college. I mean, Escondido, you know, it’s 110 and I’m in a suit and tie washing cars

Speaker 2 00:24:08 Making $10

Speaker 1 00:24:10 And 55 cents an hour. Like, what the fuck did I do wrong? You know? But it’s, it was, uh, it was a starting point. And then it’s like, you’re starting to double down on your skills. You double down, how can I become the best, uh, account executive at, at and T? And you did that. Right. And you just started to level up from there

Speaker 2 00:24:26 100%. And I think in, in though, when you, when you realize things in that, in that area, I mean, w when you get to that point in life, I think you can go two ways, to be honest. I think that when you get to a point of, especially like out of college, you have two mindsets either this cannot be it. So let me work my tail off to continue to ascend in life, or you can have the mindset of, I guess this is it, right? So let me, and then that’s where you see people who stay at, in one position at one place for like 15 years without moving up, because it’s like, they went to college and then there was taught all their lives that they go to college and get a degree, then they have a good job. And then when you realize, when you come into to the job, especially you came out in the financial crisis of taught 22 in 2007 and eight. Right. You know, and that’s crazy. Right. And then, but you had the mindset because you have this amazing work ethic that, yeah, I’ll start here, but this is not the end for Tyson. Like I’m going to continue to continue to build, continue to Saint as a reason why you’re where you are today.

Speaker 1 00:25:33 Yeah. It’s, it’s, um, it’s interesting though. It’s where people start and what they want to do, and it, it you’re, you hit it on the head. You know, there’s lots of people that I graduated with. Um, man, they’re making that 75 K and they’re going to cash that until they die and that’s just their life. And I don’t, I don’t, I don’t personally understand that, but then maybe we should talk a little bit about circle of influence, because I look at like, I’m at a call with my best friend. Who’s, uh, he’s in, uh, San Diego, still both of them, well, one of them we’ve already discussed offline it, you know, and, and he’s doing a very financial wealth yet. My other best friend, he made 1.9 last year. Right. And he’s a year younger than me. So it really made me feel like shit.

Speaker 1 00:26:11 But, um, you know, like, so my circle of influence everybody, I surround myself with typically makes more money than me. Um, which is important to me because it never allows me to feel like, you know, all I’ve made it arrive, arrive when, you know, I’ll be, if my friend’s like, oh, I just bought a, an, uh, an apartment building. I’m like, cool, man, I invested in crypto. You know what I mean? It’s just like, we’re playing two different games. And so that pisses me off. So it drives me there. So let’s talk, talk to us a little about your perspective on that.

Speaker 2 00:26:38 Oh, man. I think the circle of influence is, is very, very key because you’re going to gravitate toward who you hang around a lot. So example your friends, your circle of influence, Boda basin pushes you to get to where they are or higher than, than they are. I think that you should people now, again, this is, if you want a better life, not everybody wants a better life, right? So if you’re, if you’re a person who wants that for, for themselves and say, you know, I, I want to make a change, right? Look at who you hang with, who look at who you associate yourself around. Right. Do those people have the same mindset? If you don’t know, just have a conversation. Hey man, what, what, what do you, what do you, what do you, what is your angle? Like? How do you think right.

Speaker 2 00:27:27 People would tell you, cause it could, they think that you’re having a conversation with you are, but you, but you’re getting, you’re getting into it. You’re getting data. Like how, how, how do they think, man, look, I want to stay at this job for the next one to five years. And you know, I just want, I just want a smooth Colt, like very smooth, comfortable life. I don’t want anything more. I don’t want to, you know, doing it. Okay. Then you start gathering that data. Like, okay, this guy, if I hang around this person, I’m going to gravitate towards that subconsciously because that’s who you, that’s what you around all the time. So then you get asked the question. Uh, well, Chris, what if, I don’t know anybody who makes a million dollars? So I don’t, I don’t know anybody who does X, Y, and Z, right?

Speaker 2 00:28:08 You, if you work at your job and if you’re trying to, and if you have a good relationship with your superior, you can next to them. What’s their mindset. And Hey, listen. And I’m, I’m trying to get to, again, if you’re not an entrepreneur, this I’m trying, I want, I want, wanna, I want to get into like a senior management position. Like, can, can you introduce me to one of the senior managers here at the company? I just want to see what the road is like, then you don’t have, you don’t have to actually know them. You can be introduced to them, whether it’s email or whatever the case may be. And if you don’t, if you, if you don’t, if you’re not comfortable doing that, there’s a lot of self-improvement things that you can research on your own, right? You can type in how to change my mindset.

Speaker 2 00:28:52 Like I have. It’s a lot of things out there that can help you with that. Um, but circle of influence is very circle. Again, like I said earlier, circle of influence. Doesn’t have to be people. You actually know. It could be people that you admire. Like, like you said, people at your job whose function at a high level acts, as a matter of fact, one of your coworkers, one of your peers could be a PE could be, have a growth mindset. If you see this person who’s number one in their job. Every single time, it’s like, I got to hang around this person. Like they had their, they have something that I want. So I want to let me grab that towards that.

Speaker 1 00:29:25 That’s powerful. Yeah, because it’s, I think oftentimes people think that you got to find this like unicorn, you know, multimillionaire where it’s, it’s not the case. You know, it’s just the person that’s just at the next level that you want to get to, um, is, is a great target. You know, the one thing I, when you’re talking that made me think of is this, um, homeostasis. Yeah. And you know, a lot of us don’t realize, and this, I want to bring full circle to what you guys are doing because it’s so important. Um, is, you know, a lot of us don’t realize that our, our self-worth is derived by the time we’re 12. And so you’ve already kind of made up in your mind how much money you’re going to make, you know, who you’re going to be, what type of life you’re going to have on a very deep, subconscious level, all that’s from your imprinting, you’re, pre-programming from your parents.

Speaker 1 00:30:11 So this is why you see people that they get a job and they make $50,000. They never really get above 70, but if they get fired from that job, you sure shit, they’ll find another job that makes $50,000, right. Because that’s their comfort level. So they stay in that. So it’s very hard to break out of that, which usually has to do with your conditioning. So I just love that a lot of people don’t even recognize they have those patterns involved. Uh, I’ve been really cognizant of that because I set big financial goals at an early age for myself. And then it’s just, how do I, how do I get that? And you know, like Charlie Munger says, you know, in order to become a millionaire, you have to have the character of a millionaire. You know, what got me here is not going to get me. There is another one that I, I really love. Um, so you know, Chris to kind of start to wrap this up a little bit, where do you see success, fundamentals going? Where do you guys want to take it?

Speaker 2 00:31:00 Oh man. Um, we have, uh, we have huge aspirations for, for success fundamentals. And, um, I’m a huge person of the law of attraction. So all your, your, your, your listeners out there, you know, if you haven’t read the secret, read it, but I miss a ton of, I’m a, I’m a nerd. I read all kinds of books, but, um, we see this company, uh, changing people’s lives in a, in a wholehearted way. So we want to be the first P like when people think of success, we want people to think of us first. Not, not. And again, this is when we talk about it, cause we’re not talking about anything that’s material with. We’re trying to help you become your best self. Right? And we’re going to not just talk about success. Like again, people when Tiser episode comes out, please listen to that.

Speaker 2 00:31:45 Cause he dropped a ton of knowledge in that, but we talked to these people and we get their mindset. If we get what helped them along their journey on a fundamental basis. And then we’re also going to add, give you things that allows you to help break through in your life. But by talking to therapists, having life coaches, understanding the power of meditation. Um, so we see that and also to this ultimate level is we see success, fundamentals get good, getting to a place where we can invest in other things to help other other companies or have a platform where, where if people to, Hey, you know, for some Brian I’ve been listening to your show, you’ve changed my life. I started a business. Would you mind if I come on, come into your show to kind of tell people what I do like help people out. I think that’s all what life is about is helping people. So if you have a, we have a big platform and we want to give people recognition, cause they’re doing the work and changing their lives based off the information and services that provide, we would love to have people come on the show and kind of talk about that as well.

Speaker 1 00:32:44 That’s really awesome. Um, where can people find you

Speaker 2 00:32:48 Man, on Instagram, at success fundamentals podcast, we post not just only, only our content, but other people’s content as well. That’s in line of what we’re trying to do. We also have a YouTube channel just type in success, fundamentals, and we should pop up. Um, and if you want to follow me personally is at Christopher that site’s K R I S T O P H E R dot psychs on Instagram. Um, you also follow my co-host Brian too. His name on Instagram is at Mr. Good goods,

Speaker 1 00:33:30 Well, for everybody listening, I will, uh, have all those handles and a link to Christian Brian’s podcasts.
