Thank you for listening to a slice of life with me eugene lowe
00:00:07.880
your those of do-it-yourself motivation online create life and today I speak with
00:00:11.680
serial techno prisoner with a love for writing alex
00:00:15.710
chung who together with his co-author steven has written a series
00:00:20.320
of self development books called project you under...collective pen name
00:00:23.870
...from nieces can share with us why decided not to put your
00:00:29.520
names to this book series all I think when we started this series we thought of
00:00:34.540
all okay why we can of course we can put our names on it but,
00:00:38.130
...there's a certain belief that project view
00:00:42.860
...stands for something it means something to...this project you should,
00:00:47.740
should live as long as he has a natural only natural life and,
00:00:52.720
you can even outlive us so if you look at from that perspective our names are not made of
00:00:58.630
and it's very...but if you really think about it the put you itself...on for
00:01:03.250
...fifty hundred-years but the people behind it could change so really
00:01:08.030
the our names are...read important but what we believe in it
00:01:12.490
...it's very important so there's a reason why we came up with the project you
00:01:16.120
...we think we as a brand I mean if you really look at
00:01:20.840
dummies right you think about the dummy series all you thing about the chicken soup
00:01:27.990
for so you think about...of the brain so itself greedy project you
00:01:33.050
is a is very similar in terms of concept and okay and,
00:01:37.860
...the collective name if you will that maybe the band name if you will
00:01:41.720
flow nieces also has a rather interesting meaning behind
00:01:45.990
it and you share with us what that is what...nieces okay, so,
00:01:51.790
common with is quite hot even...stephen king came up with the what I struggle with
00:01:55.720
...in essence the meaning of the what it means
00:01:59.400
a knowledge interaction well knowledge in itself has
00:02:06.020
...everybody thing about it doesn't do anything right you learn something but if you leave
00:02:10.990
it in within you with us and you don't put things into action it has no meaning
00:02:15.660
right so for this is really about putting knowledge into action right
00:02:19.590
so basically what we want to do with project you is putting
00:02:25.180
whatever we learn whatever we know into...action maybe some action plan
00:02:29.930
ok so that's the reason why we call it...okay so tell us about this knowledge
00:02:34.440
ok that's contained within this broke this book series which is...project...
00:02:40.640
in the y all you ...is just give us the just the essence of what
00:02:47.640
you view the series is about well this series is really about we will call it
00:02:52.750
putting the individual on the road map to authentic success so you might ask
00:02:57.400
what is authentic success but all the fix-all to us authentic success is really a
00:03:02.390
...something a success that is defined by you and nobody else meaning that not
00:03:07.730
the primary family not if I may society not defined by the by the stereotype success
00:03:12.940
that's a line to your own values right...right...own personal value and,
00:03:15.580
...really appalled a holistic approach
00:03:20.570
...personal development I mean we there are a lot of the above and
00:03:25.860
...development all solve ...books...that talks about maybe the
00:03:31.500
profession alive on the family life as a silo right but
00:03:36.290
...like that is too...to us project you is really about the seven elements that
00:03:40.070
we look into...of we have the personal life family
00:03:44.710
...life we have for health and fitness we have spiritual and,
00:03:49.570
we have a mental emotional life and the loss of all we should be few the
00:03:53.580
...most important which is a little bit out they we call
00:03:56.790
it interconnected life interconnected like means
00:04:01.680
...live these things that are bigger than quite bigger than you think
00:04:07.000
...you say-so is really about how you can improve the ball to solve
00:04:13.210
so on so forth so like I said adding put...not just a single is really about the entire
00:04:16.480
series entire concept of very holistic
00:04:20.620
look into your individual life yes I have a look through, you know,
00:04:25.830
the focus...the contents as well and it really does look rather massive the
00:04:30.430
kind of scope and trying to achieve here and,
00:04:35.380
I was just so one what I...to ask you as well and of course it is a stereotype, you know,
00:04:39.300
you coming from an it background and you...you still
00:04:44.620
...techno...very no sort of course the stereotype is why is that tech
00:04:48.720
guy talking about these kind of a metaphysical philosophical
00:04:54.770
aspects of life which is quite silly when you think about it because we all are living lives right
00:04:59.630
we all have the right to share all expertise on how we live our lives but I'm curious to find
00:05:04.430
out how you actually came to want to write this book where did you droll,
00:05:06.320
you know,...motivations
00:05:11.000
an influence from let's go back to the stereotyping thing that
00:05:15.680
...tend to look at people so...we...people normally below people normally
00:05:19.670
...nice but however if you look at say, for example, new
00:05:23.270
under the beach...what is he so he's
00:05:29.860
...he's a sculptor he's a painter he's many things to manyis many things
00:05:35.610
...multiple...so I...I certainly believe that each of us
00:05:40.850
as individuals we multi tenant for potentially multiple so
00:05:46.580
when I say I'm pretty good ip doesn't really mean that I you don't you're not
00:05:52.200
getting somebody else let's say, for example, right I have a friend who's actually you might get the same reaction if you wrote a
00:05:53.640
cookbook...
00:05:59.320
Asthma is a tech guy writing a cookbook service that sort of thing...
00:06:05.120
yes this is the is like a banker and can be highly...them playing a
00:06:11.630
...so we so, ...from oppression writing for many years
00:06:16.060
ago from oppression writing so we this is more of a little vehicle could be
00:06:21.460
right to realize my personal dreams as well how did you discover your passion for writing?
00:06:21.840
Okay,
00:06:27.020
that was when I did my masters in economics which I
00:06:31.660
...in any part of my life the economics in terms of the korea right but
00:06:36.670
there was if you if there's a defining moment that will be on a train right from manchester
00:06:42.750
...edinburgh that very specific moment I felt very frustrated
00:06:47.740
about homework okay because I was there must rise are possible right something
00:06:52.030
...okay I have to do right these and say why do I have the right this.
00:06:55.080
...so if...might one writer then
00:07:00.610
I will determine what I want to write and what I like to...so that was like a
00:07:05.930
small little spot in me and that was there was a easily about twelve years ago
00:07:10.440
...began...like a burning question yes right yes okay to begin
00:07:12.890
...burning question and the lives
00:07:18.120
...by a...you down and then you sort of lost the solve forget things
00:07:23.010
quite a game something's happened in couple years back and that sort of
00:07:26.920
...the this desire to right okay so did start
00:07:29.170
...like journalism, you know,
00:07:33.010
something you wrote about your own experiences...pouring out
00:07:38.520
to own sort of like trying to try to make sense of the world?
00:07:46.300
Was...a way yes when I...writing actually back then when I was
00:07:51.970
doing my I caught myself...when blocks...even popularI had a
00:07:57.890
blog...because...exists...was it was under something...I'm shake
00:08:02.180
...where I what brought about because economics and,
00:08:07.440
back then I mean you still is like subject that nobody understood
00:08:10.460
...need to know right and,
00:08:13.480
I decided to put this all this?
00:08:16.650
Complex terms in a very simple with...this...sort of
00:08:21.240
...that they until someone writing but...like I said a
00:08:26.150
...one getting married having children mu starting a business and sort of
00:08:29.230
that stop something had to give so that writing
00:08:34.520
...for a while right so that didn't I didn't really seriously right to
00:08:38.170
...like I said I decided to do a project you and
00:08:41.890
...something that the so,
00:08:46.550
that during that period you had no inkling at all that all that sort of bits of writing
00:08:50.570
...that...desire to write what results in a book, you know,
00:08:55.060
what I told myself I did a sharepoint time I did the I met
00:08:59.590
...professor tom be cool at dinner and,
00:09:03.810
it was one of those things that on...I do I set up with him
00:09:07.980
is it okay I promise youwhen I published a book
00:09:12.340
out often copy to-you and eventually I did...the I
00:09:16.980
did last year when it first published I met him in a pop
00:09:22.560
right and I said okay professor...sort of...right and, he was like okay I promise you
00:09:27.270
...back down send you a book...was...me okay thank you very much I'm show the
00:09:31.460
...okay with this guy but I think is really a ball
00:09:36.700
and fulfillment of a promise and that was fulfillment of that moment was
00:09:41.630
to me it was quite defining if you ask me and I've been speaking with alex john co-author of the
00:09:46.100
series of self development books writing under a collective pen name of phony
00:09:49.790
...more information on the project you books is available
00:09:55.000
on amazon-dot-com I'm eugene lowe on a slice of life and, my conversation with
00:10:00.170
alex continues in a while online create life eugene lowe on a slice of life...three
00:10:05.040
eight life my conversation with alex chung continues now alex is a...no but,
00:10:09.440
apart...entrepreneurial korea alex has a...passion for writing he
00:10:13.670
coke created and co-authored the project you living a determined live series
00:10:17.250
a series focusing on helping people create determined lives that
00:10:21.450
lead to authentic success self satisfaction and happiness the project
00:10:25.170
you series has been helping people around the world has appeared on
00:10:30.010
...bestsellers list for personal transformation my conversation with alex
00:10:35.140
continues...the scope of this book is extremely ambitious it...very
00:10:39.680
...as well...encompasses like you...it's a very holistic, you know,
00:10:47.810
...or pathway or whatever you want to call it of how to live a good life...
00:10:53.650
in that sense so there's so much in it and how did you what was the process
00:10:58.330
like of getting all of that together was it that you did you write one perhaps
00:11:03.100
what article week where did you get inspiration from what did you write
00:11:08.000
to maybe randomly when you felt something in burning in your in your chest you
00:11:11.780
...to get out what was it like okay I think?
00:11:17.350
Well, I think every writer has a different style I mean you're...some of you have your own style and,
00:11:20.390
I think is the number one I think the most important.
00:11:25.320
...attribute for right...discipline right yes,
00:11:31.080
you need inspiration but type thing was it the thomas edison
00:11:36.470
set invention was ninety percent invention is ten percent inspiration ninety percent
00:11:41.310
perspiration so is really a box...the...aspiration...book
00:11:47.090
involved doing these is right ...target is something that you should do
00:11:50.300
recap in the morning sometimes you
00:11:55.750
...you get inspired and you just...do the thing that you need to do right which is right
00:12:00.250
so that means you decided you wanted to write a book about,
00:12:05.600
you know, the sort of thing and then you put yourself on this path of
00:12:10.090
a disciplines should jewel of writing it yea this is right
00:12:13.430
...he some writers the right because the we have to
00:12:17.710
...that passion they cannot do anything else it just explodes from them right they don't
00:12:23.320
do it for anybody else...you know, for you then why did you decide to write this but why
00:12:26.270
do you feel that this book should be written?
00:12:29.670
...a little story behind this...behind...how you
00:12:34.580
...thought that was actually a friend of mine well a buddy of mine actually he's rios
00:12:39.830
...thirty nine years so he went a couple years back when he was...forty four now I mean couple
00:12:42.050
years but he dropped it
00:12:45.890
...res...in a patrol station literally just
00:12:50.140
...so I mean when things like that happen to you
00:12:56.140
...I mean I still remember the time the day when I was looking at into his
00:12:57.230
coffin right say-so.
00:13:00.930
What am I doing my life what I
00:13:05.480
have a achieve right and in one way one of my one of my was my purpose
00:13:10.680
in life so that sort of took me back into...I will call up
00:13:16.400
on personal journey of self discovery seeing...not on purpose and,
00:13:20.350
luckily enough I had my own opportunity to so-call?
00:13:26.820
Clear the table of what they have just clear the table and start putting...back what things are
00:13:31.280
important to you that I realize okay and obviously a family of
00:13:34.280
...so-and-so forth right but one of those things
00:13:40.600
that was my passion which is...okay I obviously at
00:13:44.720
...point...I decided I should look at what are the most important things in my life
00:13:48.310
and the most important thing was...
00:13:52.880
...without help nothing works...right you can have a things that you campuses as
00:13:56.340
...right so, what I did was so,
00:14:00.890
I decided to change everything so after eighteen months I lost something like eighteen
00:14:06.200
...right memphis marathon rightI reorganize my entire
00:14:11.010
...schedule right in fact it also during that time I did
00:14:15.200
another I decided that I should exist might current at
00:14:20.280
a time current business and start doing something more meaningful right something that
00:14:26.490
I few that this more...those sorts of this on the career path right and?
00:14:31.360
And, essentially that was the eight and mv end product was really like
00:14:35.330
...I strongly felt that has had a story to tell.
00:14:39.630
So,...a friend of mine she...how it right.
00:14:44.420
And, to see whether that might whether my store we sort of mix and
00:14:47.280
...anyway I just want to write it so I...device to
00:14:53.190
remote from steven telling him that okay other story right and, I...anybody
00:14:58.800
...friend to die to go to what I did and.
00:15:03.680
To find new basically what I did...I did had a sort
00:15:09.630
of rebirth you really think...I had a rebirth and,...okay right at a point
00:15:14.480
...was health and fitness right entire story health and fitness and maybe some
00:15:18.120
...motivational stuff right and,
00:15:24.850
stephen have something in his cellar...my...the
00:15:31.720
...the concept of project...so after two months working on my book is that,
00:15:36.040
you know, alex...something else so he explained the entire...project
00:15:40.900
you and it took me five minutes I mean I
00:15:45.400
had to recover because it was shocking because so humongous so big
00:15:48.280
right so ridiculous that.
00:15:53.030
...height...had to stop whereas it stephen.
00:15:56.570
What have you been smoking invert?
00:16:05.400
Something...previous...nothing but this how I view life and,
00:16:08.440
we were very close in terms of...and I said.
00:16:14.850
Let's do it that was about eighteen months ago so we.
00:16:20.280
From the conception of the idea of obviously we had to work on the
00:16:22.970
...what one was the moans and things
00:16:28.090
...by essentially that the ideas further about eighteen months ago that period when between means
00:16:33.190
steven I mean...the process because I mean as you can
00:16:37.710
...two little boys coming together and coming up within an idea of and,
00:16:42.150
just...a realizing that suddenly you to have something in common right
00:16:46.310
yes, right I mean and, the other thing is I mean I'm in
00:16:50.620
singapore and stevens is in palm springs us.
00:16:54.520
So, we are...we and we are able to.
00:16:57.550
Publish a book all start to publish a series of
00:17:01.090
books having both possible and
00:17:05.300
everybody thing about it is really a mixture of what is even worse.
00:17:12.560
So, I think this is something that is ...for pursuing I mean we have to differ determine life
00:17:17.000
that's our multiple anyway this I'll take...so we just doing what we believe in
00:17:22.630

00:20:31.080
...really about living...to me...right but
00:20:35.920
...determine...is not good enough in our concept because if you live
00:20:43.030
...in life you can turn out to be other figure...determine life right all some
00:20:48.700
michael many x right they have determination over your gambler bigger, bigger determine life address, you know,
00:20:54.340
as a...so all these we have what we call before we
00:20:57.650
...about going into what we call the put in
00:21:02.310
like tony we have to have a set ofso-called values by this
00:21:09.090
...what we call project you primary keys this study...you mention you beatings
00:21:13.780
that attitude...you optimism respect responsibly things like that
00:21:16.930
...these are these are very important because this
00:21:20.750
...foundation as a person right a person not just
00:21:25.550
for an individual but as a family member as a part of the community
00:21:28.040
...obviously part of the human resource
00:21:32.250
...so that's the reason why we have to touch on things
00:21:35.690
like pretty cute and these are the primary keys this...
00:21:40.720
...if...so many different values right then and there's so many and that, you know, cover
00:21:46.420
even really list down there but I notice that self definition happens quite early on in your
00:21:50.350
disk so that is so definition is comic self-awareness...book called
00:21:54.820
...that as well right isn't that the most is that the most important thing you have to get down
00:21:57.630
pinned down first before you get to the other things yes,
00:22:02.410
definitely I mean if you if you look at if you want to move forward
00:22:07.280
and you have to look at...office right and not just about looking where you
00:22:09.920
are looking at who you are is readable solve
00:22:14.100
...discovering upon what you're good at and what he
00:22:22.950
...I remember this show...I mean...cartoon is check...this show
00:22:30.470
called guardians and, the...to check...call then and he huge across
00:22:35.460
...understand about what he sees what is calling...is meant to doing is live and
00:22:41.260
eventually found that he's he can make people happy he can make people laugh so that?
00:22:43.130
You have to find.
00:22:48.410
Each of us is good...something is like I said talented right and they have to
00:22:52.790
find within themselves what is the output on purpose and,
00:22:58.350
if you again, like, for example, describing what you could at so I think the self discovery part in
00:23:04.500
...definition part is very important meaning that,...I went tookay,
00:23:09.850
I'm...to myself okay I'm a father...wonderful kits
00:23:14.560
that I'm that way so how do I why am I going to be
00:23:17.940
what how far am I going to be so is really...determining
00:23:23.380
okay I'm this I'm good at this I'm going good at...is...say,
00:23:28.950
for example, I'm all the...that doing part of your negotiate with your
00:23:34.060
...things...you do some things are those and things so this is again a
00:23:38.500
sub discovery is actually what we call the very first stage of what we call
00:23:43.780
the project you life join...for putting like journey has five stages...the
00:23:48.710
very first each image is some discovery the second-stage is what we call
00:23:53.440
shift momentum because after discovering what you're good at what you're not good at...you look at
00:23:57.300
...okay I need to change direction then you have to make the decision to
00:24:02.030
change direction...against the stages after deciding
00:24:07.710
lobby get stuck there right...okay I want to change direction but used to carry on
00:24:12.090
doing what you do you can't do...you can't expect things
00:24:16.320
will change to carry on doing what you do you have to move forward in that
00:24:18.620
...from direction you have to move forward
00:24:23.850
...really is the third stage is really a moving forward...for a lot
00:24:30.040
of people face that we call...stage which is facing challenges well this is where the hot part
00:24:33.980
...mean you have to you have to when your face challenges what
00:24:38.610
will be your response because everybody will face challenges in life so,
00:24:43.790
for example, man atomic...I mean I don't prevent them from falling down but I keep telling them you you've
00:24:49.310
got to stand-up you gotta pick yourself up and carry on so that's that sense
00:24:54.070
of self responsibility and that...ability to help yourself every new yourself
00:24:57.950
is very important because we talk about self-awareness of definition that's all well
00:25:02.890
and good but most people still depend on other people to make them
00:25:07.380
happy still feel still depend on external people external factors
00:25:12.100
to do something for them before they can fulfill that self and also
00:25:16.390
...focus is so important because you have to find the strength within yourself to be
00:25:22.010
that a person that you want to be because otherwise it's not going to work and most of us
00:25:26.880
don't realize that till...really bad happened which is
00:25:32.210
in a way surprising I mean not surprising but, you're right I mean in reality I mean
00:25:37.190
...court room when you talk to people ball...you because process was putting you and you have
00:25:40.650
...to...especially strangers.
00:25:45.770
And, they say okay then...is...that a lot of them
00:25:51.560
the regardless of whether the assess windy careers and not what they tend to be
00:25:57.100
they never thing about what is the purpose of what you just can...lives and,
00:26:00.960
do it but yeah, I...we take a step bank?
00:26:03.800
You have to fulfill something right so,
00:26:08.790
what's the what are called the hungry spirit what is your hungry spirit when you're screwed
00:26:13.020
on we fall...you have to go to that solve this
00:26:16.720
...resolver when...all that in order to understand
00:26:19.940
what is your spirit truly hungry for and,
00:26:22.360
when you have that then you do not need
00:26:28.120
any external satisfaction meaning I mean that's the reason why if you look at the world today
00:26:33.980
there's a lot of things that gives that sort of instant gratification thing I...for example,
00:26:37.050
retail therapy allowed women...people shop
00:26:41.670
...I mean because it makes if you could write but is that?
00:26:46.810
A few...long that feeling long-term most likely not right that's the reason why they
00:26:52.890
have to go again and again and, resolve the reason why partly you look at the wheel today's
00:26:59.140
is a mess and I've been speaking with alex...that code creator and co-author of the project
00:27:03.410
...living a determines live series of self development and motivational
00:27:08.240
books more information at amazon-dot-com all projects you life dot com that's
00:27:12.060
...while you life dot com I'm eugene lowe and my
00:27:17.270
conversation with alex continues in a while I'm eugene lowe on a slice of life online create
00:27:21.910
live in today I'm talking about a series of books called project you living a
00:27:24.560
determinant life which focuses on holistic
00:27:29.160
self development and motivation alex john is one of the code creators and
00:27:33.820
co-authors of this book series which has appeared on amazon's bestsellers list
00:27:38.240
for personal transformation my conversation with alex continues of course
00:27:41.710
...two things here one is the purpose in your life and what you can do for
00:27:49.060
you also there's a very selfish...the bus, you know, as either I mean...I kill
00:27:53.930
seeing these as well the cell love is very important because you cannot...this absolutely no way you can
00:27:59.880
have somebody else simple right but however if you look in from the interconnect that will
00:28:05.240
...perspective...connect that we are connected to the entire...is...family
00:28:10.300
...the community so you are part ofentire ecosystem,...
00:28:15.020
right so but however if we if we start thinking about competing with each
00:28:19.310
other because if we if we I mean if you look at the solve for
00:28:21.240
...gratification bodies is very much to equal
00:28:26.250
...the cell the person right you have to look into
00:28:29.270
the what we call the beginning you
00:28:33.960
...beginning you so very much is really about contributing to it
00:28:34.460
costs?
00:28:39.840
So, what is that cause they...has to...to...to be defined
00:28:44.630
...right...mean I decided means even...write...
00:28:50.410
series because we decided that we want to influence as many people sp can
00:28:55.270
...book series to project you write however, we can also do if
00:29:00.450
we decide otherwise we can probably do...committee level of family level
00:29:05.420
is the same thing project you but at this point time we just saying that we have to bring?
00:29:08.220
And, you're right I mean we there's a lot of a self
00:29:14.680
...a lot of self-help books about the self but not so much about the interconnect
00:29:19.430
...this of each of us...and I think that's very important to discuss right
00:29:22.320
...this finding this course that is so important but, you know,
00:29:25.000
most a lot of...of
00:29:28.900
a confused by that because we think of the calls we think of
00:29:33.880
okay charity volunteering, you know,things like that and,
00:29:38.460
some people may not be into say helping animals all the all
00:29:40.060
...green.
00:29:44.560
Agenda or the environment or whatever so they get very confused anything and they give up at some point like, you know,
00:29:49.020
what is microsoft okay anymore but we're really saying that it doesn't matter what the
00:29:53.960
...is of course...shouldn't be a negative of course we're talking about things like you
00:29:57.760
mention family level it can be something as basic and simple
00:30:02.750
as saying hey maybe I have them being as good a son or daughter as I should
00:30:04.970
have been and then at designing at that point
00:30:09.010
...maybe I will try to be a better son the better...service a father
00:30:13.720
...mother and that will be your calls and then from then on the grows and grows and grows
00:30:18.190
...becomes very spontaneous read and write I think I know these really about
00:30:24.230
it becoming a habit and it becoming something that you just live let's say, for example,
00:30:30.270
I mean if you're if I tell you a story that if I tell you the this something called a
00:30:35.840
spaceship right and within the spaceship there couple of questions so we did
00:30:40.010
the astronauts so what the special...do when let's see,
00:30:43.450
for example,...eating right all they have to recycle
00:30:50.570
...the space key right I mean that's greedy readable recycling and things
00:30:56.530
like that so if we imagine that this spaceship right
00:31:01.750
is called the new so if you start acting like cowboys instead of
00:31:07.700
...cowboys we just take what they need...that somewhere...and,
00:31:12.650
pollute the spaceship mobile...the spaceship
00:31:15.890
...just disintegrate so?
00:31:18.070
Really I mean you really think about...
00:31:22.290
you think the thing about the interconnect business then it will become.
00:31:24.900
You will become conscious
00:31:29.730
that you should not do something rather than you do something rather than not do something so,
00:31:33.810
of course, you know, sometimes...guilty of actions but very often we also
00:31:38.470
...of emissions so is really about the way you live.
00:31:44.900
And, I think this is something that of course ...very much part of project you as well because this
00:31:48.170
...be that sometimes...
00:31:53.160
It's quite scary reading about what we're trying to do but, heck I'll really try to do
00:31:56.800
...yeah, I mean I think simply put in a nutshell... through,
00:32:01.530
through the course of reading the book I think you help people realize that first
00:32:06.250
yes you must know yourself and love itself but from that you must to realize that
00:32:07.720
...something bigger than us of
00:32:11.940
outside of yourself that you need to find in order to find the colorful film and that
00:32:16.320
is not just, you know, eat something and then you become hungry again because the sort of things
00:32:21.260
very external...virtually the sustain you in the long-run so you really need to be part of a
00:32:23.430
...ecosystem, you know, and,
00:32:29.530
give something back and that is the kind of fulfillment that will enable you to help people and that
00:32:33.510
is wavefile purpose as well...a human being there but like
00:32:38.180
you said unfortunately sometimes you need a negative event for things to trigger but
00:32:43.790
...project you we really hope that this can be a trigger to bring...when
00:32:47.360
...the need for what I'll call the very first thing itself
00:32:52.360
we fiction to see where you are before, before doing something anything else so
00:32:57.090
...there's a reason why we call it authentic success because authentic success
00:33:03.520
is something is...for...something right we can just live life
00:33:08.040
floating without a without a purpose well of course we can but
00:33:12.720
that's not I don't know whether this...living but that's not...to...now is not that
00:33:16.850
somebody not living right so this because you'll really have something you don't have
00:33:22.100
a like foundation stone to keep you crowned with and things happen because life
00:33:26.370
is so unpredictable right if you go through your...just like not care about anything the
00:33:31.910
moment something hits you are you finding that much more difficult to get up again, you know, you
00:33:37.540
do have you just don't have the resilience because you don't have that vision that bedrock, you know,
00:33:42.780
that you...trying to find like you to find something whether it is again to do your
00:33:44.150
calls your calls, you know,
00:33:49.130
...the calls that keeps you going day-in-day-out despite what life throws
00:33:52.660
that usually so when you say what lectures are you a lot of times b
00:33:55.250
...failures I'll.
00:34:00.740
People phyllis failures right so the thing...failure and desperate sometimes quite typical in terms of
00:34:04.880
the asian society where the way we look at fingers media failure okay these guys
00:34:10.490
...it but if you really think about if theta is just a temporary situation right so,
00:34:12.910
if you again you look back at what thomas
00:34:16.420
...he felt ten thousand times before you did a light bulb so
00:34:21.020
imagine he decide okay out of the three tries to give up...you will
00:34:23.720
...in total...is, yeah,
00:34:26.800
right so imagine you he doesn't he's got determine,
00:34:31.730
yeah, he's talented all these things but...above all he has to be determine...he has
00:34:36.700
that vision to decide okay I want to invent a light bulb what coming
00:34:42.180
out of your people see people offering...right...then I thought okay that's not the way to
00:34:46.980
do a...we so that's...determination and I've been speaking with alex
00:34:51.780
john code creator and co-author of the project you living a determines live series
00:34:56.220
of self development books you can find more information at amazon-dot-com
00:35:00.880
