10/06/2022 – Tom His Father’s Legacy – Section 1
00:00:01.470 –> 00:00:23.260
Tom Painter: Hello, everyone! This is Tom Painter, and welcome. You can see we have people from all over the world that are joining us. Thank you. Thank you for being with us. This is the success of money live class, and in the next section i’m going to bring on a friend of mine, Mr. Nathan Osman. But before I do that, I want to congratulate you. I want to congratulate you for making a difference in people’s lives.
00:00:23.270 –> 00:00:39.079
Tom Painter: You know the success money foundation is your foundation. This foundation was created and designed to help people all over the world, and today I it’s kind of an interesting day that just popped up onto my calendar. But my father passed away six years ago today,
00:00:39.090 –> 00:01:00.979
Tom Painter: and one of the things that my dad taught me is is. He taught me about success and money principals. I’m. One of ten children. There’s seven of us boys. I was number seven uh my grandpa would just start. The very top would go through all the names before he hit us, and so we just to give ourselves numbers. That was easier. But you know my father was very of was was
00:01:01.010 –> 00:01:13.780
Tom Painter: the closest thing that I could say is the self made man, you know. He started with nothing uh my mom, and he started with nothing, and they were able to to make a life for themselves and for their family members,
00:01:14.150 –> 00:01:36.939
Tom Painter: you know. Uh, in nineteen thirty uh My mom and dad were both born uh right before that the credit crunch and the great depression started, and Hitler came into power in about twenty, eight, twenty-nine. But before that you know, things were roaring, things were going well, and my mom and dad were both born in one thousand nine hundred and thirty. My dad is four days older than Warren Buffett,
00:01:36.950 –> 00:02:06.939
Tom Painter: and so I had my own small Warren Buffett, if you will. That was able to teach us kids about success and money principles. Now both my mom and dad grew up without two nickels they rub together. They started with nothing. Uh they fell in love. They got married at an early age they started having children, and my dad started working with with my uh grandfather in fixing up old cars, and they would go. Find all these old cars in the fields and barns and stuff like that, and they would literally tone back to the service station,
00:02:06.950 –> 00:02:29.939
Tom Painter: going to start fixing them up, and then they would resell them. Later they were able to get a franchise uh with Chrysler, and they were able to start selling cars, so I grew up in the car business, which is a tough business uh the the margins are very tight. It’s very hard to do, but I learned a lot of things from my dad and kind of in his honor today. I just. I I want you to know that this foundation would not have started
00:02:29.950 –> 00:02:31.269
Tom Painter: without my dad.
00:02:31.900 –> 00:02:44.560
Tom Painter: My dad was the one that that taught us the things uh he. He had systems that he taught us. We did things. I look back, and I connect the dots on a lot of the things that I’ve done
00:02:44.750 –> 00:03:13.210
Tom Painter: over the years and the businesses I’ve ran, and the real estate we’ve bought, and all those things, and it all goes back to little techniques and strategies that my dad taught me. But he didn’t just teach me. We did it together, and I remember specifically one time that we were uh I was helping him paint this little house that was next door to us. Now I grew up in a little town of Nephi, where there’s like three thousand people in Central Utah. Uh. There was only like eighty kids in my graduating class.
00:03:13.220 –> 00:03:27.020
Tom Painter: But when I was a teenager there was a little house that my dad had bought that was next door to our house, and that little house was kind of run down. It was older, and uh, we were out there scraping off the old paint so we could repaint it,
00:03:27.030 –> 00:03:34.209
Tom Painter: and it was hot, and I wasn’t having any fun. And I says, dad, am I getting paid to do this? And he goes No, son, get back to work,
00:03:34.220 –> 00:03:51.269
Tom Painter: You know he’s very kind about it, but you know he could see that wasn’t quite the answer that I was looking for. So I said again, Dad, are you sure that I can’t get paid for doing all this work? It said. You know what, son? Um, you know we bought this house so that we could have extra money to help put you kids through college
00:03:51.290 –> 00:04:09.440
Tom Painter: now as a teenager. I really didn’t care that much about college, and he could see that, was not the answer I was looking for, and uh, you know. And then he told me something. He says, you know some. Did you know that some people make so much money off of their real estate, their investments, their businesses,
00:04:09.450 –> 00:04:11.379
Tom Painter: that they don’t have a job.
00:04:11.580 –> 00:04:15.120
Tom Painter: All they do is manage those things,
00:04:15.720 –> 00:04:33.030
Tom Painter: and that just wasn’t like a light bulb, really, you know, because I’ve been working down at the at the uh dealership, you know, sweeping up, cleaning the bathrooms and stuff like that. I worked at a A as a dishwasher at truck. Stop! That’s how I got started, and one of the first checks I ever made
00:04:33.040 –> 00:04:43.860
Tom Painter: uh doing dishes literally at a truck. Stop um! I didn’t have a checking account. We actually put it in with a little account that my dad had where we had loan money to people to buy cars,
00:04:43.870 –> 00:05:02.449
Tom Painter: and at the time interest rates were really high, and there’s a lot of people that uh needed to be able to get a car, but they didn’t have the finances to do it, or couldn’t qualify, but they were good people, and so I started loaning money to my dad to this little account, and he paid us the interest, and I was making twelve on my money as a teenager.
00:05:02.500 –> 00:05:04.859
Tom Painter: Now, what’s so amazing about that
00:05:05.060 –> 00:05:10.679
Tom Painter: is that my dad taught me a lot of lessons. But one lesson that he taught me specifically was, he said, You know,
00:05:10.780 –> 00:05:14.450
Tom Painter: son, If you, if you sell someone a car,
00:05:15.230 –> 00:05:23.269
Tom Painter: sell them a good car, sell them a car that’s gonna run, sell them a car that doesn’t, break down, and you know what they’ll pay you,
00:05:23.330 –> 00:05:36.520
Tom Painter: you know, if you loan them money to be able to buy the car. They’ll pay you if you sell them jump. They won’t, so don’t sell junk, make sure that it works for them. And that was very, very important for my dad. I remember times that My dad,
00:05:37.860 –> 00:05:42.669
Tom Painter: you know, saw somebody that was driving a car that had bad tires,
00:05:42.880 –> 00:05:50.340
Tom Painter: and he would give him a little card and send him down to the to the Tyler dealership, and they would just put new tires on the car for people
00:05:51.170 –> 00:05:52.700
Tom Painter: because he was worried about.
00:05:54.100 –> 00:05:54.960
Tom Painter: But
00:05:56.250 –> 00:05:58.010
Tom Painter: that’s all right.
00:05:58.970 –> 00:06:02.670
Tom Painter: This is this is what the foundation was created.
00:06:03.200 –> 00:06:08.020
Tom Painter: Um! And my dad, this would not be her was for my dad,
00:06:08.080 –> 00:06:10.280
Tom Painter: because he taught me these things.
00:06:10.360 –> 00:06:15.690
Tom Painter: My mom and Dad were very giving, and they were very compassionate, and they were very loving,
00:06:16.080 –> 00:06:23.329
Tom Painter: and they wanted the best for their kids and their grandkids, and and they did some interesting things in one thousand nine hundred and eighty four.
00:06:23.480 –> 00:06:28.779
Tom Painter: They had twelve grandchildren, and they started an account,
00:06:28.910 –> 00:06:36.880
Tom Painter: You know they started sub-accounts for all the Grandkids, and they started putting money into those accounts and for investment.
00:06:37.080 –> 00:06:48.500
Tom Painter: Now we always talk about growing your own money tree, and and you know which is, which is planning a money seed, and then watering it, and then taking care of it and growing it well. They did it
00:06:48.510 –> 00:07:08.950
Tom Painter: mit ctl, and they had twelve grandkids, and they they created all these sub-accounts for these grandkids. They put in money in there They took care of these little investments that they did, they watered them, they put more money into them, and they took care of them. And then, when the Grandkids got to be twenty, one years of age. They could either leave the money in there, or they could take the money out for real estate, or a small business, or something else. Two hundred and fifty,
00:07:09.120 –> 00:07:23.289
Tom Painter: and then the tree basically and now is your responsibility. And the amazing thing is that when my mom and dad both passed away Um, my dad passed away six years ago. Um! He was eighty six years of age when he passed away.
00:07:24.180 –> 00:07:25.310
Tom Painter: Um!
00:07:25.500 –> 00:07:36.509
Tom Painter: My mom passed away a few years ago, but they had seventy, seven, zero, great, grand, and great grandchildren, and every one of them had one of these investment accounts.
00:07:36.730 –> 00:07:41.500
Tom Painter: When they get older they get to take that money. So all my kids have these investment accounts.
00:07:41.700 –> 00:07:51.499
Tom Painter: My mom and dad could have taken that money and spend it. My my mom did sacrifice my dad’s sacrifice so that their kids could have a better life,
00:07:51.650 –> 00:07:57.570
Tom Painter: and their grandkids could have a better life because it was tough growing up during the depression,
00:07:58.480 –> 00:08:02.060
Tom Painter: and that’s why we’re doing the stuff we do at the foundation.
00:08:02.250 –> 00:08:19.439
Tom Painter: You know It’s not easy, you know, doing the things that we’re going to ask you to do. It’s not easy opening up in an investment account. It’s not easy funding it and worrying if you’re going to lose money. But the reason that we get you to do that is because it changes your life. It changes how you think.
00:08:19.450 –> 00:08:25.519
Tom Painter: Now you’re an investor. You think differently, just like my dad got me thinking differently as a teenager
00:08:26.150 –> 00:08:54.719
Tom Painter: real estate. Not only did he teach me about the real estate next door, but we had this one little one uh property, and he split it in half is a pretty good size. Property. Split it in half. He gave one half to my brother to put a small house on, and then he took the other one and sold it to someone, and they made monthly payments to it. And those are the monthly payments that help put me on my my uh Christian mission um to to Toronto Canada. So I was learning these things from my dad,
00:08:54.850 –> 00:08:56.000
Tom Painter: and
00:08:56.440 –> 00:09:03.060
Tom Painter: you know. The amazing thing is, I look back on my career, and just the strategies that he taught me
00:09:03.070 –> 00:09:20.870
Tom Painter: by doing it, not just talking about it. But we did it. You know we were buying stocks as a teenager, you know. I remember vividly laying on the floor looking at the newspaper, and he and I would go through the stocks and stuff like that, and and we were buying stocks. I was engaged. I was an owner, I I I you know I thought differently,
00:09:23.020 –> 00:09:40.949
Tom Painter: and so he’s made a huge difference. And so, as I look back, as you know, Steve Jobs says, you can’t connect the dots going forward. You have to connect them going backwards. So if you connect to Dots backwards, you can see the strategies that you’re using here that someone taught you in the past.
00:09:41.230 –> 00:10:07.379
Tom Painter: That’s why the success money foundation was created, and techniques that my dad taught me in business I used, and you know, as you know, on our small and our businesses I’ve done. I’ve done millions and millions of dollars with the real estate millions of dollars of of businesses. My businesses that that i’ve uh controlled, owned, was a partner in some with with Robert Allen, who was a neighbor of our next guest.
00:10:07.540 –> 00:10:22.169
Tom Painter: You know we’ve done over four hundred five hundred million dollars in in revenue. So the things we’re teaching you, the things that we’re bringing to you with with all of our guests is This is not academic. We’re not making this stuff up. We lived it,
00:10:22.580 –> 00:10:36.709
Tom Painter: we lived it, and the strategies that I’ve learned in the past were ones that I used to to do hundreds of millions of dollars for the sales. We just added Zeros. We say that if you want to be successful, find out what successful people are doing. One hundred and fifty
00:10:36.970 –> 00:10:40.640
Tom Painter: then simply follow and do what they do
00:10:41.160 –> 00:10:44.470
Tom Painter: now. Some of the very successful people, all they do is add zeros.
00:10:44.480 –> 00:11:08.349
Tom Painter: They’ve had more and more zeros, and if you’re going to make a cake and your grandma told you how to make it, and she gave you the recipe, and you followed up step by step. You could make the same cake now. She’s probably not going to tell you everything, but she’s going to tell you most of it because she wants to be special with that kind of stuff. It’s the same way with you To be successful. You have to follow a strategy you have to continue to learn, and I’m still learning.
00:11:08.360 –> 00:11:22.710
Tom Painter: I still go through classes. I still go through classes myself. Now i’m I’m retired. I got all the money, and I I put on my my investments on automatic pilot, so that I have all kinds of investing groups that I I invest Worth? Because now I can spend my time working in the foundation.
00:11:22.720 –> 00:11:34.720
Tom Painter: Um, And this is this foundation is dedicated to my mom and dad. So the money that you are receiving for your investment. Accounts are all coming from the Gym and Zoma painter uh Scholarship Fund.
00:11:34.920 –> 00:11:40.330
Tom Painter: Now, how did we fund this foundation. How did we get the money in? The foundation was real estate?
00:11:40.370 –> 00:11:42.350
Tom Painter: I started buying real estate
00:11:42.580 –> 00:12:07.150
Tom Painter: in one thousand nine hundred and eighty-three, with my my girlfriend who became my wife, and we would buy houses and fix them up, and fourplexes and things like that. Well, the first fourplex I ever bought in one thousand nine hundred and eighty-four, is one of the buildings that we donated to the foundation. We donated three four unit buildings and and a house, and Berkshire, Hathaway stock, the Warren Buffett stock. I’ve got three of his autographs. So the things we’re teaching you is stuff that we do.
00:12:07.580 –> 00:12:23.080
Tom Painter: That’s how it was founded and funded. I started doing all this stuff because I had a heart attack when I was thirty, four years of age, and as they were wheeling me into the operating room. I looked over my wife and wondered if I was coming back, and if I didn’t come back, who’s going to take care of my special needs. Children.
00:12:23.830 –> 00:12:36.039
Tom Painter: I had to find a way to get to take care of myself. Better and more importantly, I had to find ways to create systems to be able to take care of my special needs, children, because
00:12:36.150 –> 00:12:42.579
Tom Painter: I don’t think the government’s going to do very good job with that, and and I don’t want. My kids have to compete with other kids that have those issues,
00:12:43.380 –> 00:12:49.089
Tom Painter: and we did so much investing and stuff like that that later on. We were able to take a lot of that and put that into the foundation.
00:12:49.230 –> 00:12:58.249
Tom Painter: So today I just want to tip my hat to my dad. I want to to acknowledge him especially. Today. I was six years ago that he passed away,
00:12:59.060 –> 00:13:12.900
Tom Painter: and both my mom, He taught us the things how to be compassionate capitalists, and that’s what we’re trying to teach you, and I know It’s hard. It’s hard doing, buying that little house and fixing it up and flipping it.
00:13:12.910 –> 00:13:26.210
Tom Painter: Um, I know it is the very first house I bought. I fixed it up, and my financing didn’t go through that. I was told it was all good, and then it didn’t go through, and I ended up, had given the house back to the seller. I fixed up his house for free,
00:13:26.220 –> 00:13:35.059
Tom Painter: but for some crazy reason I still had the belief that it would work because of the things my dad taught me and things that Robert Allen taught me. And so the next property I bought.
00:13:35.690 –> 00:13:41.019
Tom Painter: The second or third was that little fourplex that we ended up using for the foundation years later.
00:13:41.400 –> 00:13:48.079
Tom Painter: It’s okay to fail, you’re going to fail. If you’re not failing, you’re not trying hard enough.
00:13:48.220 –> 00:14:05.690
Tom Painter: You need to fail more. You need to fail more, because every time you fail, that’s another. No, because you gotta get like twenty, fifty to twenty is thirty. No, before you get a Yes, so just be known, hey? That’s a no good, and it’s not personal. It’s not personal. It’s just not appropriate for that person you’re talking to.
00:14:05.700 –> 00:14:25.220
Tom Painter: You’re going to do real estate All of you have to have a place to live. You’re going to do investments. Your investments are going to go up and down roller, coaster, roller coaster versus the America route which we’ve talked about, and it’s not. It’s not easy to do. But you’re going to set these up for your kids because their brain changes now they become an investor. They think differently.
00:14:25.540 –> 00:14:43.459
Tom Painter: You’ve got to start thinking differently. You’re going to start small businesses. We’re going to teach you how to get those businesses to multiply and grow. Now remember, there’s five steps Number one. You have to learn how to make more money. The way you make more money is by solving bigger problems, adding more value and studying successful people
00:14:43.680 –> 00:14:53.610
Tom Painter: do what they do. Number two. You got to separate it. You’re going to create all kinds of systems. I have all kinds of systems that we use then now control and run all of our money because I set them up,
00:14:53.880 –> 00:14:57.869
Tom Painter: and if you can’t control a small amount in your own home. How are you going to control
00:14:57.990 –> 00:15:09.809
Tom Painter: all these money through your business? It’s number three. You gotta give it away. You gotta give it away, you know. Um. My dad and mom taught me about charitable giving. Robert Allen was very influential in teaching about about that
00:15:09.820 –> 00:15:23.189
Tom Painter: you kind of give it away. You got to give the secrets away. You got to get the strategies the way you got to get the money away, and you got to help them. So today we’re going to be announcing the the make a difference program which we have done in the past. But Christmas is around the corner,
00:15:23.250 –> 00:15:52.960
Tom Painter: and and we’re going to be able to send money out to you, and we’re going to buy. But you’ve got to fly. That means that you’ve got to go find the people that need to help. Take that little bit of money and go help them, and we’re going to talk about that a little bit more uh just a bit later as we get it finished up. But that’s kicking off right now, because we need to make a huge debt with people to help those people in need. Number four. You got to automatically invest. That’s the key. If I can only teach you one thing. If you could only teach one thing to your family and and you could not, and that’s the only thing
00:15:52.970 –> 00:15:58.970
automatically invest automatically, automatically invest. And I know it’s hard, and I know it’s scary. But if that’s the way you do it,
00:15:59.020 –> 00:16:05.390
Tom Painter: and then Number Five is to save and spend. Now, if you want to be wealthy. If you want to have generational wealth, you
00:16:05.400 –> 00:16:24.230
Tom Painter: you have to do the well formula. You have to do this on a weekly monthly basis. Every time you make money you need to put it away into your long-term investing program Times time. You don’t vis overnight. We’re building a foundation. We want that foundation to be solid. We want to go down to bedrock, and then we want to build the foundation around that, and then build the house on top of it.
00:16:24.660 –> 00:16:44.620
Tom Painter: It takes time and then have it go up in value. Why do we invest in the stock market? Because it beats inflation? Why do we start small businesses with their multiple streams inside? Hustle Because you need extra streams of income. You need extra money. Inflation is killing you as as stuff gets more inflated around the world, it’s harder and harder for you to be able to keep up.
00:16:44.700 –> 00:16:54.620
Tom Painter: And so you have to change that you’ve got to make more money, and you need to have a small business, so you can have some tax. Write off because the government is coming after your money.
00:16:54.630 –> 00:17:11.719
Tom Painter: That’s the reason you do. The side hustles, and many of those side hustles. Um, we’ve taken that money we’ve dumped it right down into the well, formula. And so now there’s all this money that’s there that makes us more and more money. That’s the key. Now, today I just want to announce a couple of great things, you know. Today is Thursday, and
00:17:11.869 –> 00:17:31.129
Tom Painter: you know we’re gonna be putting a link in right after our class today with, because, as part of the foundation. You know our purpose is very simple. Our purpose is to provide free success. Many classes for anyone anywhere. Now we have a platform, but you’re the ones that are doing it. This isn’t my foundation. This is your foundation.
00:17:31.280 –> 00:17:47.529
Tom Painter: Just that my dad and my mom were very instrumental in getting it put up and created. But this is your foundation. We’re not teaching it. We’re just creating a platform. You guys are the ones that are teaching it. They don’t have to go to our class to learn. You can get out, pull out an envelope and teach somebody these five steps.
00:17:47.550 –> 00:17:52.649
Tom Painter: You can do that in an elevator. You can start doing that and making it very simple
00:17:52.720 –> 00:18:02.019
Tom Painter: mit Ctl and Mission number. One, of course, is to provide financial rewards for students when they go through classes and share the wealth. What’s the wealth? The wealth is the information.
00:18:02.030 –> 00:18:17.730
Tom Painter: When you get this money from us, and we’ve been doing, we’ve gone over fifteen thousand transactions. I want to thank my team for doing that, because that’s just amazing Moving that much kind of money. Um, they’re small. These are money seeds, you know. I’m not giving you money tree. I’m giving you a money seed,
00:18:17.740 –> 00:18:36.249
Tom Painter: and then we’re giving you money, and we’re gonna give you some some money water to help with grow. You can reach into your own pocket. Don’t. Pull out some money i’d plant that seed. You don’t need my money you can. Anybody will do. You don’t need my seat, but you know that’s how you get started. Mission Number two is that we provide donations and a platform
00:18:36.260 –> 00:18:43.840
Tom Painter: for groups, schools, churches, charities, groups, and teams. So you can do this together and have fun and be competitive.
00:18:44.000 –> 00:18:55.470
So all the high schools around the world can compete with each other. Inside the high school the grades can compete with each other inside the grades. All the students compete with each other who could be with everybody around the world. At the same time.
00:18:55.730 –> 00:19:09.470
Tom Painter: Churches can do that. Congregations can do that. Colleges can do that. Your companies can do that anybody can do that, and we want to do that so that it’s fun. Now, when you get a membership you can come in, and of course do it as an individual. But if you have a group,
00:19:09.480 –> 00:19:26.499
Tom Painter: you know, we’ll set a group up for you, and the third one is to help those in need. Now, who are the people in need? Me? I am you are We’re all in need. We all need this information. Why do you go to church every week. Not because you’re perfect is because we’re in perfect. We’re all screwed up, all of us,
00:19:26.560 –> 00:19:30.080
Tom Painter: and we need that we need that shot in the arm every week,
00:19:41.570 –> 00:19:42.950
Tom Painter: and you go to that every day.
00:19:44.810 –> 00:19:46.829
Tom Painter: We need to help those in need
00:19:47.250 –> 00:19:55.339
Tom Painter: for every hour You’re in class. We’re going to donate a pair of eyeglasses. Why, I glasses? Because if there’s only one thing that I could help someone with
00:19:55.390 –> 00:20:01.989
Tom Painter: to make them more effective if they lost their sight. If they just can’t see they’re just in trouble, you know. I take these off, and i’m in trouble.
00:20:02.120 –> 00:20:11.749
Tom Painter: So we do eyeglasses, and we’ve done thousands and thousands and thousands of those uh we do mills, and we do clean water.
00:20:12.830 –> 00:20:16.799
Tom Painter: That’s what the foundation was created for. That’s what we do.
00:20:16.860 –> 00:20:18.919
Tom Painter: This is not my foundation.
00:20:19.040 –> 00:20:22.019
Tom Painter: This foundation is dedicated to my parents,
00:20:22.080 –> 00:20:25.039
Tom Painter: because without them this would have never started.
00:20:25.090 –> 00:20:26.280
Tom Painter: Um!
00:20:26.480 –> 00:20:30.750
Tom Painter: They’re the ones that set the tone. They’re the ones that
00:20:30.790 –> 00:20:34.550
Tom Painter: drop that pebble into the water that has rippled
00:20:35.050 –> 00:20:39.570
Tom Painter: not through our family, but through generations. You
00:20:40.480 –> 00:20:45.099
Tom Painter: that never would have happened if my dad would have not taught me those things,
00:20:45.240 –> 00:20:52.659
Tom Painter: but it never does happen. If you wouldn’t take me by the hand and and and put a paper, I should my hand. It says, let’s go paid.
00:20:52.860 –> 00:20:54.219
Tom Painter: But it never happened.
00:20:55.790 –> 00:20:58.209
Tom Painter: You know there’s a story that my good friend,
00:20:58.460 –> 00:21:08.609
Tom Painter: what Larson talks about. That’s just so appropriate for my for my family. Um, you know they had a big family like us, and they were. They were raised in tomatoes and sell them,
00:21:08.750 –> 00:21:24.269
Tom Painter: and one of the kids went through and looked at the looked at the cost, and says, Uh, you know, he figured out how much it cost for the seed, how much for the water and for the labor, and for the land, cost and stuff like that, and what what they got out of it for raising tomatoes, raising and selling tomatoes,
00:21:24.810 –> 00:21:34.310
Tom Painter: and he went to Stat and says, Dad, this does not make financial sense. You know it doesn’t make sense for us to raise these tomatoes and sell them,
00:21:34.850 –> 00:21:40.489
Tom Painter: and his dad looked at him. He says, you know, son, i’m not raising tomatoes. I’m raising a family.
00:21:41.310 –> 00:21:42.980
Tom Painter: That’s what you’re doing.
00:21:43.110 –> 00:21:45.880
Tom Painter: That’s what you’re doing, My good friend Robert Allen says
00:21:46.140 –> 00:21:54.070
Tom Painter: Good parents give their kids good memories, bad parents give their their kids bad memories. Your job is to give your kids good memories
00:21:54.300 –> 00:22:04.780
Tom Painter: and to teach him how to drive the car. Don’t, let him give him the keys to the Ferrari. When you pass away. Give him the keys the day Volkswagen, and go teach him how to drive.
00:22:05.800 –> 00:22:07.340
Tom Painter: That’s why you’re here.
00:22:07.640 –> 00:22:21.850
Tom Painter: So today today is a special day. It’s dedicated to my parents. Um! Who um are so instrumental in making all this work. Without them it never would have happened. The ripple effects, and what’s so amazing is that when you go to the
00:22:22.090 –> 00:22:28.360
Tom Painter: to the leaderboards, Kyson, can you pull up the leaderboard and let’s look at the referral board? You know the one thing that people
00:22:29.540 –> 00:22:33.760
Tom Painter: you don’t really understand how big of an impact you’re making.
00:22:33.900 –> 00:22:51.799
Tom Painter: So let’s go to the referral boards. And so every time that you share your link with someone, and everybody has a free link. It’s right under when you log in up in their course is Hi kaisen, and then you just pull it down and says, There’s your referral link that’s your for your referral link. Remember, we’re a charity. We’re a foundation and not selling stuff. We’re just trying to help you.
00:22:51.810 –> 00:23:02.640
Tom Painter: Um! But you simply look at that, and you can see that Carlyle and Johnson and Daryl. Look at all the referrals that they’ve done. But more importantly, they look at the hours that they’ve done
00:23:02.650 –> 00:23:17.210
Tom Painter: mit ctl. And you know, Carlisle’s little group has done two thousand four hundred hours that these are these are people that they that they’ve real Johnson who’s on here and and Darryl uh their spouse has worked with them. Look at the you know one thousand five hundred hours that they’ve done one hundred and fifty.
00:23:17.410 –> 00:23:28.809
Tom Painter: And so let’s look at the last seven days, because if you’re on the seven Day board. We’re going to send you a a financial reward. Now, remember, you got to put it in your investment account, but you can see all the hours
00:23:28.820 –> 00:23:41.220
Tom Painter: that the people that you, that they have given this link to that have gone through class. Can you imagine going to a university which all of us do, and spend a whole semester learning stupid stuff, which is what you’re probably learning.
00:23:41.640 –> 00:23:51.839
Tom Painter: You’re learning stuff. That doesn’t, do you? Good. We’ve got students have been in class for two hundred and fifty hours. They’re going to college at the success of Money University right here.
00:23:52.040 –> 00:23:58.980
Tom Painter: Now you can see me. I’m the top refer right there. I did all of this with my phone. I didn’t do any of it on social media.
00:23:58.990 –> 00:24:23.429
Tom Painter: So let’s go back to the to the top referral number, and you can see that I i’m just getting started this last week. I referred ten people, and I literally pulled out my phone copy. Add my I copied my uh unique referral link, copied it, texted it to someone, had to open it up right there in the spot and click on it and got a free free membership, and then click on it and say, this is how you watch the classes and show them a couple of classes.
00:24:23.440 –> 00:24:35.099
Tom Painter: Now, I’ve got to start getting these people to go to more classes. So it’s important that you sign people up. I plan it a lot of seeds. But the referral hours is what’s so important. Now, if you’re on this board,
00:24:35.110 –> 00:24:49.230
Tom Painter: you are going to get a a jot form that you could fill out because we’re going to send you a financial reward just for sharing the wealth. Okay, I’m going to give the money away. Anyway. You know, we put three million dollars into the foundation. And this is how we’re giving it back.
00:24:49.290 –> 00:25:00.589
Tom Painter: Okay, And we’re giving it back for you to do things to make a difference in your life and the life of those people that you love. Let’s go to the influencer board just for one second Kaisen, and then we’re going to introduce our next guest.
00:25:00.650 –> 00:25:19.690
Tom Painter: So this is the really cool thing. Right? Here is the influencer board. So here are the people that you influence. But, more importantly. How many people did they influence? Okay. So you look at Johnson and his wife a medie right there. They did one hundred and twenty-eight people, but those people signed up another one hundred and ninety-two
00:25:21.250 –> 00:25:34.330
Tom Painter: that have been on for three thousand seven hundred hours. He’s responsible with his wife for over five thousand hours of our students going to class. How do you change somebody’s world? Give him a fish. You feed him for a day,
00:25:34.650 –> 00:25:45.689
Tom Painter: you give him a fission poll. You can feed him for a lifetime. But if you teach him how to teach, you can change a whole generation of people. That’s what we’re doing. We’re changing a whole generation of people,
00:25:45.800 –> 00:25:55.940
Tom Painter: and just the simple act by Carlisle and Johnson and every one of you. You can see the total hours that your people have gone to class. This is influencing for good.
00:25:56.290 –> 00:26:04.390
Tom Painter: You know. We could get people money, you know. What would your other have? You don’t give one thing to somebody love money, knowledge, or experience. You got to give them one of those three. What are you going to give them?
00:26:04.400 –> 00:26:23.780
Tom Painter: Well, what do we do. We just give money because it’s easier, and we don’t want to talk to him about it. Okay, that doesn’t work. We give them some knowledge, but not very good knowledge, because they are our kid. We’re not going to tell your family anything different than you, would they? They just need to hear from another source. And then the last one, of course, is experience. We’re going to have you experience it and do it, and it’s.
00:26:23.790 –> 00:26:32.390
Tom Painter: You’re gonna fail, and you’re going to succeed, and that’s the only way that it’s going to change your life. So today i’m ready to check uh get into our our next segments here,
00:26:32.720 –> 00:26:43.929
Tom Painter: but I wanted to acknowledge my dad um, and I wanted to acknowledge my parents for the hand that they’ve had in making such a huge difference and the ripple effect.
00:26:43.970 –> 00:26:55.750
Tom Painter: They don’t have any idea. My dad has no idea that putting a a paintbrush in my hand and teaching me about things and doing it with me, and pulling the trigger on things
00:26:56.000 –> 00:27:11.769
Tom Painter: ripple effect that it’s had through me through our family, through all the businesses we’ve created, and the the event businesses and stuff like that, and all the stuff we’re doing in the foundation. We just hit one hundred thousand hours. We’re going to have a million hours on this thing,
00:27:11.780 –> 00:27:21.750
Tom Painter: and it’s going to be wonderful. So I want to thank you all. I want to express my gratitude to my parents because one of them this would not be.
00:27:22.780 –> 00:27:24.100
This would not be.
00:27:24.260 –> 00:27:26.180
Tom Painter: The same is true for you.
00:27:26.860 –> 00:27:36.829
Tom Painter: Your family is going to is going to be on a pathway, and if you can help get them on a different pathway, you can change their life.
00:27:37.030 –> 00:27:42.419

10/06/2022 – Nathan Osmond On The Osmond Family – Section 2
00:00:02.230 –> 00:00:23.709
Hello, everyone! This is Tom Painter. Thank you so much for joining with us. We have people from all over the world that are following us on all kinds of social media platforms. Uh, my wife and I are the co-founders of the success of money foundation dot org. And we have a good friend of mine that I’ve known for many years Mr. Nathan Osman, in the house. He’s going to be our first guest,
00:00:23.740 –> 00:00:42.720
and of course everybody has an Osman story. So i’m going to tell you one quick story about the Osman’s uh Osman family, of course, uh Nathan’s Father’s Allen, who was a neighbor with Robert Allen, and they they uh, you know. Nathan grew up with with Bob’s son uh Aaron.
00:00:43.280 –> 00:00:49.549
But you know my my aunt Um was Olivine Sword Center, Larry Sorensen’s mom,
00:00:49.730 –> 00:01:02.599
and she worked with your grandmother Olive in this club in the Fan Club, and she used to just talk about all the wonderful things about the Osmond and the whole family and everything else,
00:01:02.610 –> 00:01:16.609
and it was a wonderful experience for all of them. Jimmy was friends with with Larry because they’re about the same age. I remember them saying that they snuck down to the by, you football stadium and snuck in somehow, and did all kinds of
00:01:16.840 –> 00:01:20.420
anyway. Um, My aunt,
00:01:20.620 –> 00:01:26.749
she got older, had had some real diabetes problems, and she was put into a rest home.
00:01:27.010 –> 00:01:33.270
And uh, she lost both her lakes because of diabetes problems. And so she was in a wheelchair, and she was just really down
00:01:33.300 –> 00:01:49.430
um, and just you know it’s just It’s just not a very good time for in our life, and I bought a small little Tv with a video player in it, remember. And I put that video player and I found a whole bunch of Osman shows,
00:01:49.440 –> 00:02:04.680
and and I took it to her. And there’s all these vhs Osmond shows, and she just watched him for hours and hours and hours, because she said that she loved your family, your grandparents, your your parents and uncles and aunts so much. Um!
00:02:05.230 –> 00:02:24.179
And so that’s just a legacy. It’s a legacy to your to your grandpa and grandma, because absolutely you look at the all the generations. Without them none of this would happen anyway. Today. I’m so excited to have Nathan on with me, Nathan, as I’ve known him for many, many years. He’s he’s done amazing things. Not only is he an entrepreneur?
00:02:24.190 –> 00:02:31.670
Uh! He is an artist, a country artist. He’s had four. Number one hits this have come out which is pretty impressive.
00:02:31.680 –> 00:02:44.870
Um! And he’s done some amazing things. He’s an investor. He’s a philanthropist. He gets back. His whole family gets back, you know, because I I’ve watched the all his dad and mom do so many amazing things. The whole family is that way.
00:02:44.880 –> 00:02:55.529
And uh, and i’m so excited to have him on today. Um jumping in there, and I think the most important thing that he is is that he’s an ad. He’s the dad and the husband that would probably be his.
00:02:55.900 –> 00:02:58.769
Probably the one thing he’s probably um
00:02:59.080 –> 00:03:28.690
the happiest about and most excited about. Anyway, i’m going to turn time over to my friend, Mr. Nathan Osman. Take it away, Nathan. Ha, ha! Thank you, Tom, man! I tell you what a great blessing it’s been to be on here this morning, and to see so many incredible faces from across the world. Some are saying, Good evening. I’m just waking up this morning, you know, and it’s not credible that we’re all on the same planet. We’re all in the same what I call campus. We’re all here to learn. We’re all here to grow. We’re all here to share and learn from one another,
00:03:28.700 –> 00:03:53.410
and we’re all here to give back, and it’s not what we do here, not not the quantity of days we have on the earth but the quality, and we want to leave a legacy. And I see that as you, with your your success and money foundation is doing around the world. I just want to congratulate you. You know I I know it’s got to be a very uh tender day today as you got that to notification about your father’s passing, because um,
00:03:53.420 –> 00:04:14.510
you know we love our parents at least I hope we do. You know our parents are put in our path for a reason, and you know It’s their first time being parents. Your dad and mom did a great job raising you, I posted in the chat. You know Tom Painter is the great man, and I emphasize great and so many people who agreed. Tom. Thank you for the goodness that you are, and for the the change that you’re making in so many of these People’s lives.
00:04:14.520 –> 00:04:44.510
We’re all children are the most High God. He loves each one of us equally, and he wants us to succeed. You know he knows where the gold is, too, and we need to put our trust in him. We need to be humble like you are, Tom. Look at the goodness that you’re doing, and I love it. You’re giving credit to your parents, you know, in one of my favorite books. This is an honorary life, father, on my mother. The days might be long upon the land, and I I hope that you live to be a thousand years old, because the good that you’re doing. But I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Nathan Osmond, and I.
00:04:44.520 –> 00:04:58.580
I do come from a musical family, and typically you know the the thing that I I’m asked the most is, who’s your daddy since we’re talking about daddy’s here. I thought i’d introduced you to my family is because we got a lot of younger people in here, and they probably don’t know
00:04:58.590 –> 00:05:10.610
the stories that we were just talking about about my family. My father’s one on the far left there dancing. His name is Alan Osmond. He is the oldest of the performing brothers, and I say that because he has two older brothers, that we’re both born to death,
00:05:10.620 –> 00:05:39.720
and so they didn’t do a lot of performing with the group. But he, you know. I grew up watching them in television studios and on the tour buses. I travel on the road with my father and uncles and got to see them perform. He was a cartoon character, as you could see on there, and there was just so much fun, and you want to grow up to be like your parents a lot of the time, and my brothers and I actually started our own group, and we used to mimic my father and uncles. We even had a boy band. I used to two around the world. Um, I been to over twenty-six countries
00:05:39.730 –> 00:06:06.859
singing in many of their languages. I’ve had three songs in the top Forty in the Uk. Um, With my brothers, we worked with new kids on the block. How to be bad salt and pepperoni by nature extreme. You know all these big bands from the nineties, and I was a lot of fun. But boy bands grow up, and so I actually explored the the genre of country music. And here’s just a little sample of what my life has been like over the last several years is that they had the opportunity and the blessing of being able to create a lot of great music and
00:06:06.870 –> 00:06:08.970
perform it all over the world.
00:06:09.190 –> 00:06:30.190
And that’s a lot of fun to to see some of these videos to look back, and and you know it’s fun, and I like to share my stories. I have a podcast as well called achieving awesome is now, which I hope all your listeners will go to subscribe to as well, because you know it’s very much in harmony with the message that Tom Painter is painting out there for everybody, and that is that there is hope.
00:06:30.200 –> 00:06:59.120
And when you do the right things over and over again. You can create match that you can create a legacy. We’re going to talk about that here today, and I would love to have Tom Painter as a guest on this podcast as well. But I enjoy doing that, and being a life coach, as you know, Tom, you know I’ve been teaching real estate all over the world. I had the opportunity to represent many big names. She’d probably already recognize everybody from Donald Trump to Kevin, O’leary, from Shark Tank, Uh, Barbara Corker and Robert Hirschebec. You name it,
00:06:59.130 –> 00:07:12.080
Tony Robbins. I’ve had the opportunity to share the stage and get to know these people as my friends, and you know, when Covid shut down the world, I Still, what am I going to do with the knowledge and education and I have that I’ve been sharing with so many people. And I say, well,
00:07:12.090 –> 00:07:35.619
when we go back to school, get our license and do the mortgage world. And so I started Osmond Home loans dot com, which is a lot of fun. So day in and day out, i’m helping people to invest in real estate and get get you know pre-approved, and get out there and become homeowners. But, like you said, you said it best that uh the thing I am most pleased with the most proud of is my family. I’m still grateful to be a husband and a father of four sons.
00:07:35.630 –> 00:07:45.290
We live here in Utah, and um, you know each and every single day I count my blessings because I was doing my you know one hundred and seventy-eight push-ups today.
00:07:45.300 –> 00:08:15.280
I just every time I went down and pushed back up. I gave thanks and appreciation for the blessings that I I I love, and that’s my wife and my four sons, and my Savior, and and all the blessings that I have to have out roof over my head, you know. And as I took my mind off of the physicality of what I was doing, and I just with every breath I just breathed out gratitude. And it really made a difference this morning as I watched some of these videos here that were showing on the screen. It’s It just makes me account my blessings that I’ve had the opportunity
00:08:15.290 –> 00:08:28.409
to to uh be married to such a beautiful lady, and and have these four incredible sons right here, and, as you can see, we have a family of four boys. I was born into a family of eight boys. No girls,
00:08:28.420 –> 00:08:37.709
so the Osman name is here to stay so in a nutshell that soon Nathan Osmond is, and just honored to be here with you guys today. But the question is, why are we here today?
00:08:37.880 –> 00:08:57.729
Why are we here? We’re here to up our game, and that’s an important thing to me is, what does that mean to become the best at what we do? You know, I think it’s important to know. There is a game going on. In fact, you know what you become, the who you hang around. So I want to find out who i’m hanging out with. I want to invite somebody that’s willing to read a letter
00:08:57.740 –> 00:09:11.509
from Cambridge University on air here today. This is a letter that was written by Cambridge University. It all you have to do is read it. Do I have a volunteer that’s willing to come on here? So first one to unmute yourself and say I and i’ll let you read it.
00:09:11.560 –> 00:09:20.610
Who wants to read this letter? Okay, perfect, whoever that was it just said I, i’m gonna put it on the screen and all you have to do is read it out loud for all to here.
00:09:20.630 –> 00:09:22.290
Can you read that?
00:09:23.980 –> 00:09:24.950
00:09:25.480 –> 00:09:27.979
I Okay. Let me read it.
00:09:30.190 –> 00:09:32.400
Only smart people can read this,
00:09:33.190 –> 00:09:37.549
cannot believe that I could actually understand what I was reading.
00:09:38.280 –> 00:09:43.930
The phenomenal phenomenal power of the human mind. According to a research at Cambridge University,
00:09:44.110 –> 00:09:47.869
it doesn’t matter in what part of the letters in a wood are.
00:09:48.020 –> 00:09:53.339
The only important thing is that the first and last letter being the right piece.
00:09:54.160 –> 00:09:55.600
00:09:55.760 –> 00:09:56.880
00:09:57.160 –> 00:09:58.480
00:09:58.700 –> 00:10:00.020
00:10:00.460 –> 00:10:09.100
the the reset, or the reason, the reset, the rest could be a total mass. The rest can be a total mess, and you can still read it
00:10:09.750 –> 00:10:11.220
without the problem.
00:10:11.280 –> 00:10:18.529
This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself. But there would, as a whole
00:10:18.640 –> 00:10:20.000
00:10:20.200 –> 00:10:23.460
Yeah. And I was always thought
00:10:23.470 –> 00:10:53.409
from Cambridge University round of applause for my friend right there for those of you who can’t see this right here. This letter is all garbled up. Not a single word is really spelled correctly, hardly, and you are still able to read it. Did you know that you could do that before you walk up this morning. I mean what an incredible power of the mind! The mind is a beautiful thing, and we can do more than we think we can, but the key is to believe it was possible. You see, there’s a great quote
00:10:53.420 –> 00:11:12.430
right here. It is never telling a young person that something cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for somebody ignorant enough of the impossible to do that thing. If you would have told that little Tom Paine, or with the paintbrush in his tan that was painting, that shed in the house, and everything that he was going to do what he’s done. So far he may not have believed it at the time,
00:11:12.450 –> 00:11:17.230
but his father took the time to teach him what was important
00:11:17.330 –> 00:11:24.569
he took. He took the time. And then look at the legacy. When I heard you honoring your father today, man, that just made my heart swell, because
00:11:24.580 –> 00:11:38.119
I I hope that my children someday will say the same of me, you know. But the key is, is we got to start now? We have to start now teaching young people what it is. That’s possible, because there’s a lot of crazy things going on in the world right now,
00:11:38.130 –> 00:11:47.350
and a lot of people are nervous. A lot of people are uncertain about their futures. So let me just say this when there’s hope in the future there is power in the presence of the key is believe,
00:11:47.360 –> 00:12:01.050
and sometimes it just takes a lot of faith. Faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things. Wherefore, if you have faith. You believe in things which you’re not, seeing which are true. I want to congratulate every young person and older person here today. You see how I said, older, not old.
00:12:01.080 –> 00:12:30.889
I want to congratulate you for taking time out of your day, whether it’s in the evening or the or the early morning for getting up and investing in your future by taking time to further your education. Tom. Thank you for creating this great foundation. It’s incredible. There’s a great guy named Earl Nightingale. I want to share this story, Earl Nightingale. He um. He recorded a a recording for his business, for for his company, right for his employees. He wanted to empower his, the people that were working for him and helping to build his legacy.
00:12:31.440 –> 00:12:49.519
So he did, and it was so good that they actually released it as a recording as a record, and it became a gold record like Elvis Presley. Right? It’s sold so many. In fact, it’s called the strangest secret. If you ever get the opportunity to go, listen to this. It is incredible. It’s short and sweet to the point,
00:12:49.530 –> 00:12:58.540
but he says something very important. He says that you become what you think about most of the time. It isn’t that interesting that they call that a secret the strangest secret
00:12:58.550 –> 00:13:15.740
that you become what you think about most of the time. You mean you got Rhonda Byrne out there writing the secret. You remember that book you got Augmentina Talk about the greatest secret in the world. One of my favorite books is, as a man think is so is he, or so shall he be in that book’s been out a long time. So think about that. You become what you think about.
00:13:15.750 –> 00:13:21.000
So i’m going to challenge you guys to type type in the chat box. What are you thinking about?
00:13:21.040 –> 00:13:33.290
You know, because you become what you think of another’s an exception. Otherwise it’s. Every young man would become a young woman by the age of sixteen, but in most cases you become what you think about. So my focus needs to be. What do I want.
00:13:33.350 –> 00:14:03.270
What am I doing? Am I doing things that are going to help leave a legacy? Am I furthering myself today? Am I closer to my Creator today than I was yesterday. If not who moved, you know you got to ask yourself the good question is a good friend of mine, named Andy. Andrews told me that once, he says, Nathan, the quality of your answers is determined by the quality of your questions. So are you asking yourselves the right questions? You know there’s a great book, guys. These books. You should go out and read these. But there’s another smart man named Jim Rowan, who says this about a sequences, you become the average. Some of the
00:14:03.280 –> 00:14:09.069
people with whom you associate isn’t That interesting. They’ve done studies on people when it comes to wealth, you
00:14:09.080 –> 00:14:39.060
that not only do they, you know, dress the same a lot and act the same, but in most cases their bank accounts are just within dollars of each other that you actually earn like type top five people with whom you associate. So what wealthy people to do? And this is what Tom just said. You want to hang around Successful people do what they do. Go where they go. I’m just gonna say a big amen to everything that Tom Painter just said, because it’s absolutely true. If you want to be a better tennis player, place someone that’s better than you. You want to hang around smart
00:14:39.070 –> 00:14:42.739
people because it brings your level up.
00:14:42.750 –> 00:15:10.070
If you play somebody that’s worse at that sport than you are, your game is probably going to go down. You’re not going to improve. So that just like going to the gym. When you want to build those muscles, we do those push-ups every morning. You’re creating resistance, and I tell you I I love what Tom had to say about failure. We’re going to talk about failure. You’re here in just a second, but you know the key is is you got to make sure you’re Picky, with whom you surround yourself because you become just like them. If there’s any parents in here I can guarantee you’re not.
00:15:10.080 –> 00:15:28.489
You’re You’re just like me. When you think about your children you’re absolutely concerned about the types of kids. They’re hanging around because in most cases they become just like them, You know. I I I do like sports. Um, I don’t follow baseball a whole lot. But I found this story to be quite interesting. There’s a group called the Boston Red Sox.
00:15:28.720 –> 00:15:35.019
Speaking of Mindset. Did you know that for eighty-six years they believed that they played under a curse.
00:15:36.320 –> 00:15:47.599
Let me ask you the question. If you’re walking out on a baseball diamond, or a tennis court, or a soccer field or a football field guys, You you believe that you’re cursed as a team.
00:15:48.010 –> 00:15:50.030
How are you going to play
00:15:51.070 –> 00:15:52.680
like the loser
00:15:52.750 –> 00:15:57.529
And they did for eighty-six years?
00:15:57.690 –> 00:16:07.820
The Boston Red Sox had this mindset that they were losers, that they were cursed, and that uh, that’s just the way it was.
00:16:08.410 –> 00:16:22.970
But I gotta tell you this. They decided to change their mindsets here in two thousand and four guys. They ended up winning the World series because they got new coaching new Mindset, and they decided to break the curse.
00:16:22.980 –> 00:16:33.440
And I love this story. Not only went into two thousand and four, they went to two thousand and seven, two thousand and thirteen, and it’s just incredible, you know. So what you need to do is break the curse,
00:16:33.790 –> 00:16:37.860
you know there’s this one saying that people say Sunday aisle
00:16:38.700 –> 00:16:52.559
someday i’ll go do this Sunday. I’ll and go invest someday. I’ll buy, you know i’ll flip the house Someday i’ll do all the things that Tom painter taught me to do, and some day never comes because they just they live in that sunny place with a lot of excuses called Sunday aisle.
00:16:52.570 –> 00:16:59.759
You guys, if you live on that island. Here’s my advice. Book it yourself off the island just like the Red Sox did, and break that curse.
00:16:59.770 –> 00:17:16.250
I once again with sports. You probably heard of this guy the four minute mile, you know, For as long as four petitions kept track and track and field records it was literally, humanly impossible to run the mile. In less than four minutes the the Greeks used to tie people to horses
00:17:16.260 –> 00:17:25.059
just to see if they could do it how anything happened to those people that would have hurt. But the thing is this: this young
00:17:25.069 –> 00:17:45.019
medical student over in Oxford, England, you know, decided he wasn’t going to listen to the experts. He wasn’t going to listen to the naysayers that he believed it was humanly possible to do something. He had to change his mind. He got coaching. He got people that believed in him and pushed him, and and and every day he saw himself
00:17:45.030 –> 00:17:47.999
running the mile in less than four minutes.
00:17:48.470 –> 00:17:49.710
00:17:49.720 –> 00:18:11.540
the year came. Guys right there. We’re, Roger Bannister on May the sixth, one thousand nine hundred and fifty-four, did the what was humanly impossible. He ran the mile and three point fifty-nine point four seconds. He did it. They even put him on the front cover of sports, illustrated, as you can see his sportsman of the year, this medical student did the impossible. That’s fantastic, Hoopla.
00:18:11.550 –> 00:18:22.389
But what he didn’t tell you is just forty-six days later a guy named John landing over in Turkey, Finland actually broke Roger Bannister’s record. He ran it in three minutes to fifty-eight seconds flat.
00:18:24.170 –> 00:18:26.340
But what they didn’t tell you is this
00:18:26.500 –> 00:18:37.530
is that within ten years three hundred and thirty-six other athletes continue to break the four minute mile record, including high school students.
00:18:38.160 –> 00:18:41.720
So what changed? And Don’t say steroids?
00:18:41.750 –> 00:18:43.390
00:18:44.890 –> 00:18:51.030
They gave themselves permission to believe that it was now possible, because Roger did it,
00:18:51.170 –> 00:19:08.029
and if Roger can do it. So can I? Forty-six days later, and look at that Over three hundred and and many, many more people since then guys have continued to break the four minute mile record. So the key is, Give yourself permission to believe that your dream is possible.
00:19:08.040 –> 00:19:22.739
Mindset is everything. We’re going to talk about mindset here today. I just love it. Walt Disney had to say about this. He says it’s kind of fun to do the impossible. What a great dreamer he was. I am a big fan of Disney. Now. I want to just share a quick story here
00:19:22.770 –> 00:19:44.679
about how I came to be here in front of you today because this was a pay little moment in my life. This picture that you see, this was my family and myself on a big television show here in America called Good Morning America. It’s nationally shown all across the country we are in there performing and in sharing. You know, about this tour. We’re going to do with my father and uncle’s and aunt,
00:19:45.300 –> 00:19:54.959
and there are a lot of us on the screen, as you can see there. I used to be shy. I used to not be able to talk like this and express myself this way because I was just timid,
00:19:54.970 –> 00:20:18.569
and when we go on television I was jet lag. It was two. It was two hours earlier. New York is still dark outside. I was tired. All these big Tv lights from my face there with my family on this kid right here, you can see. And the thing is is that in the middle of this interview in front of national television. That lady on the left. Joan London asked me this question. So, Nathan, do you enjoy this entertainment business
00:20:18.860 –> 00:20:27.629
and guess who freezes up on stage? I did in front of the whole country. I said. Two words came out of my mouth. Uh yes, ma’am,
00:20:27.810 –> 00:20:39.999
and she goes. Oh, I like that, ma’am, but that’s the only thing I said. My father’s side wasn’t going to see anything else, so he jumped in and save the interview, and then we were finished as I was walking out of that Tv studio. My father!
00:20:40.190 –> 00:20:48.710
Bless his heart, we love our dad. We’re talking about our dad’s here today. He put his arm around me, and he said, Son, it’s a talk show talk.
00:20:48.790 –> 00:20:53.380
People want to hear what you have to say, and on one end of the spectrum. I felt like
00:20:53.530 –> 00:20:57.850
I just let my family down on national television. I feel like a failure.
00:20:58.230 –> 00:21:03.239
But on the other hand, I was liberated because my father, my hero, my dad,
00:21:03.460 –> 00:21:09.720
the man that has sold over a hundred million records, a man who was a black belt trained by Czech Norris,
00:21:09.760 –> 00:21:17.339
a man that could do anything. He won three out of the four trophies in the army. This guy was a doer. He was a he was a hero, it still is.
00:21:17.490 –> 00:21:25.680
He looked at me with the eyes of God, who said, You know, treat a man the way that he is, and he only becomes worse. But treat a man the way that he could be, and then he becomes what he should be.
00:21:25.690 –> 00:21:46.870
I like that. And so uh you know that’s That’s The thing is that we come what we think about most of the time. Um, I want to share one quick video here with you guys. And so hopefully. You guys can hear the audio on this. Let me go ahead and turn this up here for you. But I want to introduce you to some other famous failures. Okay, See if you recognize any of these people right here.
00:21:50.380 –> 00:21:51.439
There it goes.
00:21:52.330 –> 00:21:58.409
Dismissed from drama school with a note that read wasting her time she’s too shy to put her best foot forward.
00:21:59.070 –> 00:22:05.960
Goose, a ball turned down by the Decker Recording Company, who said, We don’t like their sound and guitar music is on the way out.
00:22:06.420 –> 00:22:07.700
00:22:07.880 –> 00:22:22.700
a failed soldier, farmer, and real estate agent at thirty, eight years old. He went to work for his father as a handyman, Ulysses, as brands cut from the High School basketball team. He went home, locked himself in his room, and cried:
00:22:22.710 –> 00:22:38.470
Michael Jordan, A teacher told him he was too stupid to learn anything, and he should go into a field where he might succeed by virtue of his pleasant personality. Thomas Eddis fired from a newspaper because he lacked imagination and had no original ideas.
00:22:38.480 –> 00:22:45.289
His fiancee died. He failed in business. Twice he had a nervous breakdown, and he was defeated in eight elections.
00:22:45.770 –> 00:22:49.170
Abraham Lincoln, if you’ve never failed
00:22:49.900 –> 00:22:51.340
you’ve never lived.
00:22:52.380 –> 00:22:53.790
What a message
00:22:53.980 –> 00:22:59.389
Did we just not hear Tom Pain, or say that if you’re not failing. You’re not doing enough things.
00:22:59.570 –> 00:23:09.650
In fact, you got a failure way to success just like this man, Abraham Lincoln said about failure. He says my concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure,
00:23:09.790 –> 00:23:23.020
you know. Maybe you’ve made an investment that went on south. Maybe you’ve invested in things. It didn’t work out exactly as good as you wanted them to. Maybe you did something that embarrassed you right. Maybe you made a mistake in life. Maybe, whatever it was,
00:23:23.220 –> 00:23:26.590
my question is, Are you content with that failure?
00:23:26.780 –> 00:23:31.970
I don’t believe there’s such a thing as failure? I think there’s feedback, and life will give you plenty of it.
00:23:32.360 –> 00:23:48.550
But you got to be in tune. You got a listen. Learn from the mistakes, shake it off, and keep on keeping on, and that’s what Abraham Lincoln had to do. And look at how we changed our country. Uh, there’s a lot of other famous uh, you know failures out here like they ate to.
00:23:48.560 –> 00:23:57.240
Do you consider him a failure? No, I mean he’s a world-renowned. But did you know that his own music teacher told him he was hopeless as a composer.
00:23:57.320 –> 00:24:01.619
It was good thing he was deaf. He didn’t hear what she said,
00:24:01.810 –> 00:24:10.540
and then Charles Schultz, the guy that created Charlie Brown I mean every one of his cartoons were turned down by his, his, his, his high school yearbook staff,
00:24:10.710 –> 00:24:24.449
every one of them they didn’t know he was the great Charles Schultz. Vincent Van Gogh paid it over two thousand paintings during his lifetime, but only sold one. Is he a failure. Henry Four failed. The women broke five times before creating the model T automobile.
00:24:24.670 –> 00:24:38.789
Oh, I love Henry, for he’s got a some break quotes, too, that I’ve lived by Charles Darrow, the guy that created the game um monopoly. If you ever play monopoly he took it to Parker Brothers, and they said that Monopoly had fifty-two design errors.
00:24:38.860 –> 00:24:54.789
So, instead of changing any of those suggestions, he just published it the way it was, and it became the biggest, most biggest selling uh border game of all time, and of course, Team and Steven Spielberg rejected from film school three separate times. What What if he had just listened to the experts
00:24:55.050 –> 00:25:10.169
the nays sayers. What if he what we wouldn’t have et jaws Any of these great movies right? Think of a think of what the world would have been out of if we hadn’t heard from him. You gotta get tough, and i’m gonna save this segment here, Tom, for the next
00:25:10.180 –> 00:25:24.550
The next segment we’re going to do. But, uh, I just wanted to thank you, Tom, for having me on this show hopefully. What I’ve said here so far today is resonated with you guys, and I just want to let you guys know that I believe in you, and just like my father.
00:25:24.580 –> 00:25:41.099
As we walked out of that studio when he said: People want to hear what you have to say. You know at times. If you don’t believe in yourself, you got to believe in somebody else’s belief in you until your own belief kicks in. And I can say this: Mr. Tom Painter believes in you,
00:25:41.270 –> 00:26:11.259
and so do I the fact that you’re here today in this podcast in this broadcast? The fact that you’re taking time. Some of you are still in bed, and it’s dark, and I can see your land on your pillows. You’re putting in the time right now to be successful. You are not normal, and that is fantastic. You never want to be normal, be different. Normal, doesn’t pay very well. Most people are not. They just go along with the ninety-seven Only three percent of people actually go into retirement at the higher level of income, and they
00:26:11.270 –> 00:26:23.679
they had their best working years because they did what Tom Paine or told him to do. You’re on a good track. Stay with that because when there’s hope in the future there’s power in the present. I’m. Nathan Osman. Thanks. You guys hope you enjoyed this segment.
10/06/2022 – Nathan Osmond & His Singing TUFF – Section 3
00:00:03.090 –> 00:00:07.149
Hello, everyone! This is Tom Painter. Thank you so much for being with us,
00:00:07.160 –> 00:00:24.459
as you know we’re. I am the founder of the success of money foundation Org. Now we have a special guest on today uh who our families have a lot in common. Uh, but I got a little story to tell you, Nathan, something that you probably didn’t know. But did you know that Marie Osman kissed me? What
00:00:31.650 –> 00:00:35.330
in front of my wife? What?
00:00:36.220 –> 00:00:37.249
00:00:37.330 –> 00:00:54.870
Are you serious,
00:00:54.990 –> 00:01:01.059
Marie Osman? Which is, which is uh Nathan’s, and
00:01:01.520 –> 00:01:06.159
I didn’t kiss her. She kissed me.
00:01:06.870 –> 00:01:10.319
Now what do you think it took for that to actually happen.
00:01:11.480 –> 00:01:22.089
Oh, let me guess. Did she pull you on stage? She didn’t pull me on stage? She walked out on the audience and look for anybody that had a big, old bald head, and I was the one that got it.
00:01:22.100 –> 00:01:33.010
She loves those bald men. I love it. We left her lip lip marks right here on your
00:01:33.060 –> 00:01:47.570
you know. She did that for fun. She she always put extra lipstick on, too, because she wanted to make sure that. Uh you had a little souvenir there on your forehead when you left the the theater, you know I didn’t my forehead for three years.
00:01:47.600 –> 00:02:15.379
I’m so sorry, anyway, hey? Everybody, Thank you so much for joining on our podcast and our live class today on the success of money life. We have Nathan Ozma on with this so gentleman that I’ve known for for many, many years. He’s a talented man. He’s done amazing things an entrepreneur, a recording artist. He’s done all kind of investing a philanthropist, and most important. He is a husband and dad,
00:02:15.390 –> 00:02:21.290
and we’ve got him in the studio today, so we’re so excited to have him on. So, Nathan, I’m going to turn the time to you.
00:02:21.360 –> 00:02:36.400
Well, thank you for that, Tom. I I tell you we come from a fun family, and I shared a little earlier on with some of your students here a little bit about who my father is. My father is my my Aunt Marie’s older brother, Allen. He was the oldest of the performing brothers,
00:02:36.410 –> 00:02:50.259
because, you know, he was the oldest that can hear out of nine children. He was the two oldest were both born death. My grandparents were told that their children would be raised in an institution, and my grandmother said, not on my watch. These are my kids.
00:02:50.270 –> 00:03:16.650
I’ll raise them. I’m an English major, and i’m going to insist that they learn how to speak. I’m going to teach them how to play saxophone, a tap, dance, and everything else. But my father, being the oldest I could hear, became the oldest of this performing generation, and actually the leader of the group. Uh, like I said, I, I used to travel around the world and watched him perform so over one hundred million records. He was a black belt train by Chuck Norris, you know he could do anything in the world. The guys tough
00:03:16.660 –> 00:03:23.650
and um he’s he’s just been my hero, but I remember a day
00:03:23.740 –> 00:03:29.370
back in one thousand nine hundred and eighty-five. Okay, That’s when you started your foundation. Why, eighty five
00:03:29.500 –> 00:03:46.939
um or we started investing. And Um, I tell you this this this that year was memorable, because this morning my mother and father gathered us all together in our dining room and sat down with this big table. We all these big back chairs, where we used to have Scripture study there, and
00:03:46.960 –> 00:04:03.000
early in the morning my parents say to us sons. My and my father says um, I have something that doctors are calling Ms. He says it stands for many sons. It stands for multiple sclerosis. They didn’t know much about it in nineteen eighty-five,
00:04:03.010 –> 00:04:19.930
he says. Now i’m not going to die from this physical challenge I may end up in a wheelchair some day, but as long as I have you and your your mother’s love here, I we’re going to make this through it. And he said something That day he says I might have Ms. But a master does not have me.
00:04:20.149 –> 00:04:36.350
You see that attitude, that belief system from day one, he says, I might have Ms. But M. Mass does not have me. He’s tough. In fact. Here’s a picture of a rock that’s right outside of his house. He had this made up, and it’s called Life is tough
00:04:36.760 –> 00:04:46.230
- U. F. Now he’s not a very good speller. No, actually that’s just an acronym that he came up with, and I want to break down what it means to be tough.
00:04:46.570 –> 00:04:57.549
Because my father said this, he says life is tough, but so are you. Tough times never last, but tough people do, and this is how the Osman family defines the word tough.
00:04:57.600 –> 00:05:05.039
The first letter in tough is T, and it stands for target. Go ahead and write that down. If you’re taking notes up there,
00:05:05.050 –> 00:05:23.110
Target, What is your target? Do you know what you want to hit? Do you know what your financial goals are? Do you know what your physical goals are? Your spiritual goals, your your social goals? Do you know what it is it. Do you want to get married some day? Do you want to have a family? You know? What does that look like? What is your target
00:05:23.260 –> 00:05:33.300
cause? Let me just tell you this: if you don’t have a target. It reminds me a lot of Allison Wonderland when that jet shire cat says, Hey, if you don’t know where you want to go. It doesn’t matter which road you take.
00:05:34.030 –> 00:05:41.360
It reminds me of this song that George Harrison from the Beatles wrote called. If you don’t know where you got going, any road will take you there,
00:05:41.540 –> 00:05:57.620
man, I tell you so. You gotta focus like that scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. He’s pointing both ways. No, you gotta pick. You gotta choose a target. You gotta aim at it and you gotta focus in there and and just just go get that target. You know what I’m saying,
00:05:57.630 –> 00:06:03.239
but that’s the first letter. What is your target? What is your goal? Write it down.
00:06:03.410 –> 00:06:15.439
Number two is, you understand? It’s the second letter of tough. Understand what it’s going to take to get you there, and I understand that it’s not going to be easy.
00:06:15.880 –> 00:06:21.850
Okay, Repeat after me. It’s hard. Say that out loud.
00:06:22.510 –> 00:06:24.420
00:06:24.890 –> 00:06:28.109
and say it like you mean it. It’s hard,
00:06:28.320 –> 00:06:37.639
you know why I have people say that when I speak to groups, Does that sound like a motivational speaker? Uh, but you know why I have people say it out loud and say it like they mean it,
00:06:37.970 –> 00:06:43.989
because once you come to grips that life is hard, life is tough. So what
00:06:44.700 –> 00:06:46.210
do it, anyway?
00:06:46.580 –> 00:07:06.380
You know what i’m saying, and that’s the attitude you got to have life stuff. So what I worked for the guy that went blind. He wasn’t always blind. He went blinded around nineteen. That’s hard, that’s tough. In fact, he wrote a book called I’m Blind. So what I love that title, you know what? When he went blind. His friends took him to the Mall
00:07:06.390 –> 00:07:10.300
and left him there and said, Find your way home, Buddy.
00:07:10.360 –> 00:07:12.530
Now that’s tough love,
00:07:12.570 –> 00:07:14.759
because they knew that they couldn’t just
00:07:14.880 –> 00:07:21.070
let him use it as a crunch as a handicap the rest of his life He had to learn how to live in a dark world. Now
00:07:21.330 –> 00:07:25.770
that’s hard, that’s tough. He made it home. He was so depressed
00:07:26.040 –> 00:07:31.290
as a as a nineteen, twenty year old that he even contemplated suicide.
00:07:31.460 –> 00:07:43.909
He told me this, he said. Nath and I had the sheet tied to the bed, and I had it tied around my neck, and I was ready to jump out of the second story window. But then I heard my mama walking downstairs, and I thought to myself, I cannot put her through that,
00:07:44.090 –> 00:07:45.940
and it saved his life.
00:07:46.330 –> 00:08:05.020
So he decided to get tough. He started the focus, and now he’s out there as a motivational speaker inspiring the world over. Have you ever read that book. No excuses by Kyle Maynard. Go to read that book. Here’s a guy that was born with no arms and no legs, and he’s a football champion and a wrestling champion. You know why? Because his parents treated him the same way. They treated their other children.
00:08:05.090 –> 00:08:22.960
It’s mindset people will rise to what their expectations are. And Thomas put some great expectations on you guys. He believes in you just like in the Last Segment. Sometimes you got to believe in somebody else’s belief in you until your own belief kicks in. So just understand the life’s hard lifestyle. Then you get past it. So what?
00:08:22.970 –> 00:08:52.629
So that’s the second letter of Tough. The third one is called F Focus. Now this is where I struggle, Tom, and I think a lot of a struggle with this, you know I thought I had d. So I went and saw my doctor. He says, no, it’s much worse. You have eighty os, I said. What does that mean? He says. Attention! Deficit? Oh, look shiny things! You know what we have trouble focusing in our world. You know the adversary doesn’t need weapons of mass destruction, our cell phones, our computers, our televisions,
00:08:52.710 –> 00:08:57.060
There’s so many people trying to fight for your attention.
00:08:57.860 –> 00:09:22.249
There’s every distraction in the world of why you should put your money over here over here over here over here over here, Guys, and and you probably if you stayed up late at night last night. You probably saw infomercials with every one of their mother trying to sell you creams and dreams of smoke and bloomers, and we buy because we’re tired and we’re not focused. We’re not thinking straight, and we waste money. We throw it away buying stupid things. I just watch my friend talk about how poor people buy stuff,
00:09:22.290 –> 00:09:24.159
they buy lots of it,
00:09:24.180 –> 00:09:43.540
you know. What do? What do you mean? Middle class people buy. They buy what’s called liabilities that go crash eventually. But what do rich people buy? They buy what Tom Painter buys, they buy assets, they’re going to pay them, and enough of them that they don’t have to have a job. You know what Job stands for or just over broke,
00:09:43.550 –> 00:09:57.619
you know that’s the thing is you’re willing to do today. The things that others want. Eventually. Tomorrow you can have the things that other people can’t. That came from my friend Brian Tracy. You know I’ve worked with some really smart people, and I went up to Brian Tracy one time, and I said, Hey, can I use this quote
00:09:57.630 –> 00:10:13.439
that you have in your book the twenty one secrets of self-made millionaire. She says, Nathan, you can use any one of my quotes, and never even give me credit. I’m like, Excuse me, he’s just let me teach you something, he says in Ecclesiastes. It says there’s nothing new under the sun. Where do you think we got that stuff
00:10:13.890 –> 00:10:18.449
and the people that we got it from. Robert Allen will tell you this. What do you think he got it?
00:10:18.690 –> 00:10:27.249
And and in ten years, fifty years, one hundred years from now people will still be craving the same material because it’s truth.
00:10:27.460 –> 00:10:31.730
It never goes out of style. What Tom Painter teaches here is truth.
00:10:31.970 –> 00:10:39.040
What a labor of love that he’s put together here because he cares about you because you are his brother or his sister.
00:10:39.190 –> 00:10:52.760
Spiritually. We are all children of the Most High God, and he loves us. And if you don’t know that, hang out with Tom Painter for a while, or new friend Nathan O’s been here because you have to believe in his belief in you to make it,
00:10:52.770 –> 00:11:05.760
and you have helped me on your measure that you can’t even see. That’s what faith is. But you gotta focus because there’s going to be every wind of doctor and every voice and whispering out there trying to distract you from hitting your goals.
00:11:06.030 –> 00:11:21.620
But I tell you this: I believe that you need. You have greatness within you. I believe that you can really accomplish what it is that Thomas painting here for you and the visualize that have that target. Understand what’s going to take to get you there and focus.
00:11:21.890 –> 00:11:24.420
You know what it was hard um
00:11:24.590 –> 00:11:28.380
in our family when when my grandparents were given that uh
00:11:29.090 –> 00:11:36.500
that diagnosis of a deaf child, and then the second one comes along, and they said he’s to F as well
00:11:36.610 –> 00:11:38.520
don’t have any more children.
00:11:39.580 –> 00:11:42.540
My grandmother’s train was to have a large family.
00:11:42.590 –> 00:11:46.989
Her dream was to be able to raise them, and and to teach them what she knew.
00:11:47.110 –> 00:11:51.220
I’m so grateful that she didn’t listen to the experts because I wouldn’t be here today.
00:11:51.360 –> 00:12:04.719
I’m so grateful that she has seven more children who became the Honestman family, but she wanted to do something. She wanted to take this this challenge of of deafness and make a difference, just like Tom is doing here with his foundation.
00:12:04.830 –> 00:12:14.130
My grandmother started a foundation called Osman Foundation for Children of the world to help make a difference for deaf children.
00:12:14.400 –> 00:12:21.820
Well, they were approached by two gentlemen uh named uh Mick Shannon and Joe Lake. They came to my house
00:12:21.830 –> 00:12:48.959
when I was a child sat down with my parents. My mother made tuna fish sandwiches, and they pitched this idea of taking this foundation and expanding it to not just deaf children, but children all over the world, that they are in children’s hospitals. They know that we had a television studio, and we are capable of producing great entertainment, and they said we would love to work with the Osman family and take the nonprofit that all of Osmond, my grandmother, started,
00:12:48.970 –> 00:13:00.139
and see if we can help you, but more kids. So what you knew is Osman foundation of Children of the World actually changed his name to Children’s Miracle Network.
00:13:00.150 –> 00:13:27.390
And if you’ve ever seen that big balloon in Walmart and Costco’s and Dairy queens, and you name it across the country and across the world. That was my grandmother’s legacy. They’ve now raised almost eight billion dollars for children’s hospitals across the world, and that all started in my home around our kitchen table with tuna fish sandwiches. If you have a good idea, like Tom did with this incredible success and money foundation, org,
00:13:27.400 –> 00:13:29.439
you can change the world
00:13:29.610 –> 00:13:34.039
and my grandmother. I could say this before she passed away.
00:13:34.780 –> 00:13:41.160
She was in a coma. She came out of this call when she couldn’t talk because she had a triyotomy in her in her throw here,
00:13:41.300 –> 00:13:51.909
but she tapped my father’s hand and asked for him to handle the the little clipboard with piece of paper she loved to write, and that was the way of communicating. So she needed to write something down for him.
00:13:52.960 –> 00:13:55.049
She came back to tell him this,
00:13:55.590 –> 00:14:05.259
and she writes this, and I have a I have a copy of this letter, and it says Allen. That’s my father. He she says there is no limit to the good we can do
00:14:05.390 –> 00:14:08.029
if we don’t care who gets the credit
00:14:08.230 –> 00:14:09.480
00:14:10.400 –> 00:14:12.390
She had to share that with him.
00:14:12.780 –> 00:14:25.090
That’s how she lived. She was a fighter. That’s the last F. And tough because you got to put some fight into it. You have to go after. You can’t just set a goal and do nothing about it,
00:14:25.150 –> 00:14:30.189
because if we’re not, we can’t expect God to guide our footsteps. If i’m willing to move our feet,
00:14:30.480 –> 00:14:49.899
you have to be tough. You have to have mindset. I might have that mass. But Ms. Does not have me. What is my target to do this this in this in life? Okay, Do I understand what’s going to take me to get me there? Am I focused, or am I distracted, and am my fighting daily for that goal? You got to put the um in triumph, father says,
00:14:50.280 –> 00:14:51.730
00:14:52.380 –> 00:14:54.009
that’s how you get top.
00:14:54.450 –> 00:14:58.599
You know I had a chance to take my father to to lunch a couple of years ago,
00:14:58.880 –> 00:15:08.529
and we were sitting in this Chinese food restaurant as a nice buffet, and it was just the two of us, one on one, and I thought to myself, This is a great opportunity for me to uh
00:15:08.750 –> 00:15:13.659
to be able to talk to my father and really ask him some questions.
00:15:13.820 –> 00:15:17.059
So I said to my father, I said, Father,
00:15:18.580 –> 00:15:20.690
if you could go back in time,
00:15:21.300 –> 00:15:26.400
and if you could see your younger self and talk to your younger self.
00:15:27.330 –> 00:15:34.999
What would you tell your younger self? And here’s what he’s dead, he says, Son, here’s a He made it smart, all remark, and I laughed,
00:15:35.100 –> 00:15:39.519
but then he got serious, and he said to me, This these works, Tom, You’ll appreciate this. He goes.
00:15:39.570 –> 00:15:41.740
It’s not who you are,
00:15:41.980 –> 00:15:45.110
but who you become that ultimately matters
00:15:47.050 –> 00:15:49.749
if that’s not profound. I don’t know what it is.
00:15:49.980 –> 00:16:01.890
It’s not who you are right Now You just talked about going to Church. We all need it. We all need to improve ourselves because we all mess up. We have all send and fall, and short of the glory of God like, Paul said. But you know what
00:16:01.900 –> 00:16:15.649
we gotta keep the on keeping on. We gotta to keep it getting up when they knock us down. I wrote a song about that you got to keep getting up when they knock you down. Come on, dust yourself off, and go to town until you give it all you got don’t throw your dreams away
00:16:15.740 –> 00:16:34.599
when your friends start to laugh. Look them in the eyes. Remember, good things happen to the man who try. Come on, pick yourself up and show him that you’re here to stay as a lyric, and that fun because I saw that in my dad I wrote a song about attitude about being tough. It’s called. I can still dance in the rain. His life is sometimes cloudy. Guys are often great.
00:16:34.610 –> 00:16:46.810
My heart pounds like thunder, my tears fall down like rain. Then I think about my father sleeping in his favorite chair. He’s had so many trials, so many things he’s had to bear. I used to watch him daily. He smile when things got tough.
00:16:46.820 –> 00:17:06.330
Yeah, he just keep on fighting when others just gave up his life a living message. He always showed the way. When I think about my father I could hear him say, here’s the chorus. If this whole world should crumble, and if the heavens fall i’ll be sure to go out laughing. Yeah, I’ll be standing tall when the world thinks that i’m crazy when they swear I’ve gone insane.
00:17:06.339 –> 00:17:14.600
I can still dance in the rain. You’re going to have some rain in your life. You’re going to have some challenges. You’re going to have to get to.
00:17:14.619 –> 00:17:26.999
She can’t have a rainbow without any rain. You know what i’m saying uh. Nobody likes to rain, but we all love the the benefits of it. So you’re going to go through the pain in life. You’re going to go through hard. Things get tough,
00:17:27.160 –> 00:17:32.929
tough times never last, but tough people do. Life is tough. So are you.
00:17:33.030 –> 00:17:40.780
I’m so grateful for this message. Here, you guys Hope you’ve got something out of it. But you can’t build a reputation based on what you’re going to do, since Henry, for,
00:17:40.790 –> 00:18:00.619
in fact, you know what I was actually cast as Charlie Brown in the national tour of You’re a good man, Charlie Brown. So I’ve done not only country music, but I’ve also done Broadway. I’ve traveled around doing Joseph from the amazing technic of the dream code. I played Zebelon for two years on the North American tour, and after that was over I can get cast as this kit. Yell No, Charlie Brown.
00:18:00.630 –> 00:18:07.059
Well, listen. I wanted to be the best Charlie Brown. That was the target I focused. I understood. I got in the game. I got tough
00:18:07.140 –> 00:18:17.169
and thing is, I went out and bought me that yellow shirt with that black zigzag on it, and I just every day I walked around and put paper bags on my head. I said good grief.
00:18:17.180 –> 00:18:47.130
I went out, and I bought this cardboard cut out of Charlie Brown down to the Mall, and I put it in my in my apartment, where I could look at it every single day, and I was going to become the best Charlie Brown out there. I even started taking acting lessons, and in these acting lessons, you know, I started working on this one particular scene called the Doctors in, and this is a scene where Charlie Brown is sitting there talking to Lucy, who’s acting like a a doctor, and she says, Charlie Brown, you need to come out and just talk about everything that’s wrong with you,
00:18:47.140 –> 00:18:48.690
and he does.
00:18:48.990 –> 00:18:55.550
He does. In fact, the song is called the Doctors, and here’s some of the lyrics of that song. It goes like this:
00:18:56.380 –> 00:19:00.259
I’m not very handsome, or clever or lucid.
00:19:00.550 –> 00:19:04.740
I always been stupid as spelling and numbers.
00:19:05.000 –> 00:19:12.180
I’ve never been much playing football, or baseball, or stick, ball, or checkers, or marbles, or pain.
00:19:12.530 –> 00:19:29.960
I’m usually awful in parties and dances. I stand like a stick, or I cough, or I laugh right. Don’t bring a present, or I spill the ice cream right? Guess so to press that I stand that I screen. Oh, how could there possibly be
00:19:30.270 –> 00:19:35.460
one small person, is thoroughly, totally, utterly
00:19:35.790 –> 00:19:37.390
00:19:37.430 –> 00:19:50.320
And I tell you, Tom, those casting directors were spot on. That was me during my life. At that time I had literally become this kid. I was failing math, not the stupidest spelling in numbers.
00:19:50.330 –> 00:19:58.479
Everything I was going wrong. I was carrying around this heaviness on my shoulders. How many guys have you ever done that? Raise your hand If you’ve ever carried around this
00:19:58.880 –> 00:20:03.219
heaviness in your heart, in your mind on your shoulders.
00:20:03.360 –> 00:20:05.750
I had no reason to feel down.
00:20:05.910 –> 00:20:16.240
I just made a lot of money doing a big national tour. I would just. But my dream car was dating my dream Girl, who later became my wife. I just got cast on a national tour, and i’m walking around feeling like a loser.
00:20:16.900 –> 00:20:31.299
So I got Still, I needed to figure things out. So I went to the Provo Temple, where my parents had been married, and back in seventy-four, and I sat out there there was a place where I could go, get quiet, get still, and meditate and think and pray.
00:20:31.790 –> 00:20:35.430
And as I sat there in my red Pontiac
00:20:36.240 –> 00:20:43.810
looking up at this place with worship, and closing my eyes, and praying and trying to figure myself out. I had the most spiritual experience,
00:20:43.900 –> 00:20:53.550
and um. I know this is in a religious podcast. But, guys, i’m a religious person, and I believe that their power is beyond our own out there, that there’s purpose, and there’s a plan
00:20:53.590 –> 00:20:55.350
because I heard something,
00:20:55.860 –> 00:20:59.649
and this voice changed my life, and it wasn’t me who said it? This is
00:21:00.080 –> 00:21:03.579
why don’t you love yourself the way that I love you,
00:21:04.870 –> 00:21:06.450
and I heard it.
00:21:07.820 –> 00:21:22.330
I even looked to my passenger seat as if someone that was sitting there had just said it to me, and I knew who it was, and it changed my life, and I realized in that moment I had literally become Charlie Brown. I had become everything I thought about
00:21:22.340 –> 00:21:35.819
all these things that I just saying is spelled out here for you. I was thinking that over and over again, and told myself these messages over and over again. No wonder I was depressed. I had literally become this little kid with zero confidence.
00:21:37.090 –> 00:21:40.070
Congratulations, Nathan. You became Charlie Brown,
00:21:40.710 –> 00:21:48.550
but it affected me in my personal life. You know there’s actors like a heath ledger. What killed Heath Ledger, the joker.
00:21:48.830 –> 00:21:50.679
He couldn’t get out of that role.
00:21:50.930 –> 00:21:57.160
Well, Angelina Jolie talks about this all the time about the certain roles that she’s gotten into. She’s been had a hard time getting out of,
00:21:57.410 –> 00:22:11.909
and it affects you because you become what you think about most of the time. So that’s my Charlie Brown story, and i’ll say this next story for our next segment. But, guys, I just want to let you know that when life gets tough get tough right back. That’s the message for the day.
10/06/2022 – Nathan Osmond Butterfly Wonderful Life – Section 4
00:00:02.430 –> 00:00:23.339
All right, everybody. I don’t know if we have any country music lovers out there, but I am a country convert. Okay, I’ve sung pop music. I’ve done barbershop harmony. I’ve done s music. I’ve done uh you name it all sorts of different genres of music, even musical theater. But I remember doing a musical theater show, called Annie. Get your gun and my wife,
00:00:23.350 –> 00:00:40.479
Sarah. She would just. We’re just newly weeds. Um. She sees me come out as this character named Mac on stage just during a dress rehearsal, and during the break, you know, I come walking over to her. I’m juggling some circus balls and things like this, where my my chaps, my best, my cowboy hat,
00:00:40.490 –> 00:00:48.499
and I go walking up to her, and she looks at me, having just married me, and she says you’re supposed to be a country singer. I said, what
00:00:48.560 –> 00:01:07.769
you know I mean. I love country music. Um! But I never thought of myself as doing it. And so I thought, Wow, that’s interesting, because think about it. Look at all the songs you’re writing, and they’re very crossover. You got the look. Maybe it was just the outfit I was wearing, but but she gave me that. She planted that seed in my mind
00:01:07.780 –> 00:01:12.800
that you could be a great country artist, and I thought, Wow, okay, And I believed her.
00:01:12.940 –> 00:01:30.859
So what I did is I had the opportunity shortly there after that summer, to work with the band called Lone Star. You guys ever heard of this group, Lone Star? They’ve had so many big hits and um this guy, Dean Sams right here. He’s the founding member of that group, and he um
00:01:30.870 –> 00:01:44.229
you know they we just performed in front of like sixty-five thousand people with these guys, and as my brother’s just a kind of our pop group, you know, none of my family knew I wanted to go out and do music and country sing and all that stuff. But
00:01:44.240 –> 00:01:53.899
um, I did. I had that dream in that vision in my mind, and I always love these guys songs. So I said, i’d love to write a song with you guys. I walked up to Dean.
00:01:53.910 –> 00:02:23.639
He’s the keyboard player. I play the piano as well. So I said, Is that your keyboard? Of course it was. He was just playing it. But sometimes you want to talk to somebody. You got to have something in common to talk to them about. So I said, That’s your yeah. That’s my keyboard. So that’s awesome. And I start talking about that, I said, i’m a songwriter. You know I love to write songs. I’ve had Brian Mcnight produce a few things from mine and my brothers and some of my songs. And but you guys never do a bad song. It’s always been my dream to come out to, you know, to to write with you guys, and that would just be just a dream come true.
00:02:23.930 –> 00:02:31.130
And he says, Well, here, you you guys on the right on. He gave me his email address, and I wrote it down. It’s just come out to the Nashville sometime, and we’re right.
00:02:31.360 –> 00:02:48.169
Huh! I thought, Is it that easy? Even the lead singer gave me his email address to told me to come on out. So i’m thinking, No, it’s not going to be that easy. They’re not going to call me. I’ve got to create the opportunity. So shortly after that meeting with these guys after that show,
00:02:48.380 –> 00:03:00.089
I uh I emailed Dean. It’s a dean i’d love to take you up on your offer to right. So they held his feet to the fire a little bit, you know, if somebody makes you a promise, hold them to it.
00:03:00.100 –> 00:03:19.639
So I I had to use strategy, though I had to say, Okay, when are they going to be off the road? When can I most likely have the best chances of hitting this goal, probably before Christmas, but not too close to Christmas. So I said early December. So I said, Dean, i’m coming out to Nashville. Between this aid and this date i’d love to take you up on your offer to write with you.
00:03:19.980 –> 00:03:38.770
He wrote back to me, says Great Nathan, it’ll be fantastic. Um, I’m producing a dual. So as we get closer, why, don’t you email me? I’ll tell you what I can and can’t do, I said perfect. So with Faith I went ahead and booked my hotel, my rent, a car, my everything else by plane ticket to get me to Nashville, Tennessee. Now we’re getting about a week out.
00:03:38.780 –> 00:03:58.729
So I wrote out to Dean. I said, Dean, i’m excited. I got my hotel in my car, my my ticket book to fly out there. I’m excited to take you. Take you up on your offer to write with you. Um! Do you happen to have a phone number where I can reach you when I get out there, because all I have is your is your email address. Would you please send that to me so we can get in touch and chat
00:03:58.740 –> 00:04:00.360
00:04:01.470 –> 00:04:04.110
Shoot! I just put a lot of money into this trip,
00:04:04.810 –> 00:04:09.770
and all I have is his email address, and no laptop to take with me.
00:04:10.890 –> 00:04:27.470
So, as I get towards the day of flying out, I write to him again. It’s the day before I fly out of Nashville. Hey, Dean, I’m coming out to Nashville. Um, I don’t have any way of reaching you on a phone. Do you happen to have a cell phone number or studio number. I can reach you at nothing. He never responded.
00:04:27.770 –> 00:04:33.079
Now i’m going to the Nashville, Tennessee, absolutely blind on complete blind faith,
00:04:33.220 –> 00:04:37.319
hoping that I can meet him and do all we decided. We’re going to do the
00:04:37.540 –> 00:04:40.670
that I have no way of reaching him. So what do you do you get tough?
00:04:40.680 –> 00:05:04.899
You got a network. You got to be willing to get out of your comfort zone, or what Brian Tracy calls your danger zone, and to be willing to do well. Most people Aren’t, willing to do cold call, reach out to people, ask questions, hey? You haven’t have a number on loan start. No, i’d sorry. Do you know? Lost? Try don’t sorry, hey? And I called up a drummer friend of mine. Do you happen to have any numbers on loan stars. Actually, I might have their tour managers number perfect.
00:05:04.910 –> 00:05:16.039
So he gave it to me because I asked for it, and I called the guy. His name is coach. He’s a coach. How you doing Nathan Osman. We worked with you guys this summer in front of sixty-five thousand people there in by you Stadium,
00:05:16.050 –> 00:05:30.299
I said. I’m supposed to be out here in Nashville, writing with Dean. I just landed last night. Um, I know he’s got a new studio. I try to prove I new to the guy, I said. Hey, do you have? I have, like a studio number on him. He says all I have is his personal cell phone number. I said perfect,
00:05:30.760 –> 00:05:33.490
and he gave it to me because I asked.
00:05:33.670 –> 00:05:46.010
One of my favorite books is, Do you have not, because he asked. Not so I just asked for it. He gave it to me. So now I got his number. I’m. Sitting in a studio with another songwriter friend of mine, Miranda Lambert’s, in the other room, and she was. She had quite made it big yet.
00:05:46.020 –> 00:05:56.970
I got to meet her, and so I call him up. I said, Dean, how you doing? I’m in Nashville. This is Nathan. Um, You know i’d love to. I I thought I gave you. My cell phone number said No. I got it from coaches. Let me call you back in ten.
00:05:57.150 –> 00:06:04.100
Well guess he doesn’t call me back in ten or twenty or an hour, or four hours or six hours.
00:06:04.460 –> 00:06:23.670
Now Charlie Brown starts kicking back in. I start, beat myself up again inside going. He thinks i’m just a fan of some psycho kid that’s now got his cell phone numbers in his backyard in Nashville. All these negativity thoughts started flowing through my mind, and I had to shut it off just like I did with Charlie Brown, I said, Stop it.
00:06:24.070 –> 00:06:26.719
Whether or not he calls you back.
00:06:27.250 –> 00:06:42.639
You go. Let Nashville turn you on. You go and get inspired by this music city. Usa. I’d heard about this place called called called Broadway, where they have all of these famous honky talks, where all the legends used to go and play. And I said, Go down there
00:06:42.650 –> 00:06:57.789
and just listen to the music get inspired. I had a little tape record in my pocket, so I went down there. What’s the legend’s Corner? What’s Tutsis? What’s the stage? What’s this building right over here. It looks like a church, the Ryman auditorium. That’s the original operi. How I didn’t know any of this stuff
00:06:57.800 –> 00:07:03.030
That’s the original opery house before the grand old operating, and I I just learned a time.
00:07:03.040 –> 00:07:21.050
My wife had had a dream that I was discovered singing Karaoke. I saw this one big blue neon sign that, said Wannabes Karaoke. So I went in. There I waited almost an hour in line to be able to seeing I saying, God bless the usa to the top of my Longst, and everybody gave me a standing ovation. I didn’t get discovered,
00:07:21.100 –> 00:07:26.770
but it kept me out late enough that when I was finally in front of the Wild Horse saloon.
00:07:27.240 –> 00:07:32.140
Right? They’re waiting to go in there. My phone goes off at about ten, thirty at night,
00:07:33.260 –> 00:07:48.629
and it’s steam. Sams and Dean Sam says to me, Hey, Nathan, what are you doing right now? So sorry i’m such an idiot! I totally spaced it totally forgot to call you back. What are you doing right now? I said. I’m in my car driving to your house. How in the heck do I get there?
00:07:48.640 –> 00:08:06.210
And he just last. He says, Nathan Osman, I love you. Tenacity! That’s what you got to have to win it out here in Nashville. You got to have that that go get it added to right. So it’s to gave me. I didn’t even have a Gps. This complete miracle. I actually found my way out to Franklin, Tennessee in the middle of the night,
00:08:06.220 –> 00:08:17.889
right around midnight, you know. I found my way into a studio there, and it was so amazing, you know That’s Broadway. Right? There’s a picture of Broadway where I went, and uh, but the thing is, I walked into the studio, and there is this
00:08:18.220 –> 00:08:21.330
brand piano. I took a picture of it right here,
00:08:21.380 –> 00:08:28.849
and he was sitting in there with another songwriter, and he says, All right, we’ll sit down with the piano. Show us what you got. In other words, prove yourself.
00:08:29.410 –> 00:08:32.890
I had waited for this moment my whole life,
00:08:33.140 –> 00:08:50.900
and so I’ve started pulling out some of my best songs, just snippets of them, just to kind of wow him, he said, Wow, you wrote that song, I said, Yeah, he’s just playing another one. So I did. He love that one to play another one. I did. Finally he cuts me off. He goes, Nathan Osman, three things number one: I hate you,
00:08:51.300 –> 00:08:52.909
and I got nervous.
00:08:53.200 –> 00:09:06.469
And then he finished the sentence. He says, because i’m a piano player and you make that look easy. Number two. What are you doing in Utah? You have so much to offer, Nashville. We got to get you out here Number three tomorrow night at nine o’clock. Guess who’s coming to my house to right you are,
00:09:06.750 –> 00:09:13.140
and I was trying to like contain all my emotions inside. I was so thrilled about his reaction to my songs,
00:09:13.500 –> 00:09:20.260
and so I I use some strategy. I this play up on the ego a little bit. You know this guy’s a superstar, I said. Hey, Dean,
00:09:20.580 –> 00:09:34.200
you haven’t have any starters, any songs you started. They haven’t finished yet. We can maybe work on one of your songs. See? That’s a key to success. Guys helping help people get in in life what they want. You’re gonna get what you want to unfold. So we started with one of his. I recorded this melody,
00:09:34.210 –> 00:09:47.780
and I took it home with me that night. I’m a little tape recorder, and the whole next day I spent the entire day working on this song, trying to frame, trying to figure out what’s the song supposed to be about? I wrote. The whole thing showed up at nine o’clock with the whole song written,
00:09:48.000 –> 00:09:51.959
I said, Hey, Dean! I sat down with that same piano. I said, listen to this. See what you think,
00:09:52.150 –> 00:09:58.260
And after saying the song, It’s like you wrote that, I said. I just kind of threw it together. I spent the whole day on that song,
00:09:58.590 –> 00:10:06.379
and he loved it. We tweaked it. We made it even better. And then I had enough time that night to actually record this song.
00:10:06.470 –> 00:10:24.899
I had a whole demo, and I cried as I drove back to my hotel room because I had been tough. I targeted. I understood what I had to do. I focused on my thought, and now i’m listening to the stream coming out of the car speakers as i’m. Driving back to my hotel a demo that I had just written with Lone Star and performed and played the keys on.
00:10:26.270 –> 00:10:36.110
See, the thing is is that there’s a lot of people in life that will tell you what you can and can’t do. How many of you guys are related to people that just love you so much? They don’t want to see you get hurt.
00:10:36.270 –> 00:10:43.730
I didn’t tell a single person in my family that I was going out to Nashville to work on this stuff. And the thing is, Guys, let me just tell you what happened.
00:10:44.650 –> 00:10:54.679
This song that we wrote was written for Rascal Flats, but they already had their album in the cancel Lone Star decides They’re going to tie up this album. Okay,
00:10:54.690 –> 00:11:06.350
And this song that we just wrote. I’m thinking the first song I ever write Nashville gets tied up by the one of my favorite bands. It’s not. It can’t be that easy. And you’re right. Here’s the rest of the story. Paul Harvey.
00:11:07.170 –> 00:11:19.629
About two weeks or so after this all happened. Dean calls me up. He says, Nathan, you’re not going to believe this, but the Our lead singer of fourteen years, Ritchie Mcdonald just emailed the band and said,
00:11:19.860 –> 00:11:38.059
he’s gonna go solo. He wants to be a Christian artist and wants to do a solo act, and we’re just devastated as a band. You can imagine how frustrated we are. I’m thinking of great. There goes my big opportunity. There goes one of my favorite country bands, so I had to think quickly. I thought about my dream again,
00:11:38.210 –> 00:11:49.969
and I told Dean I said, Dean, i’m so sorry to hear that. Let’s do this. If you guys are going to record that song that we wrote. Do you mind if I do? You see It’s always been my train to be a country artist,
00:11:51.530 –> 00:12:03.790
and he says, I mean Nathan Osman. Why don’t you just come to my house, and i’ll record you. I’ll produce you. We’ll do it a prior message. You’d better not be full man, you know i’ll take you up on that, and I did, and that’s how I got my foot in the door.
00:12:03.800 –> 00:12:14.740
I went out there to Nashville, and I recorded with him That’s meaning that my first recording experience there in Nashville, Tennessee, and that’s my very first day album. We got four consecutive number one hits.
00:12:14.750 –> 00:12:28.459
But the thing, as I said at the time before I went out there just to record with them, I was teaching real estate and on stage. I was in Big Mc for big financial conferences, doing one hundred and fifty-five conferences a year I was busy. How am I going to break away to go pursue a dream.
00:12:28.530 –> 00:12:34.860
My boss isn’t gonna let me off to go and and follow my dream. He likes me where i’m at working for him.
00:12:35.680 –> 00:12:44.640
I didn’t want to tell my parents about going out there, because they told me Keep it a hobby. Keep it a hobby. We all are related to people that just love us so much? They don’t want to see us get hurt. Why is that?
00:12:44.700 –> 00:12:50.019
Why is it that the people that we love. The most oftentimes are the biggest toxic dreambusters.
00:12:50.320 –> 00:13:08.099
Maybe they’re afraid that you can make it. You’re going to leave them in the dust. Or maybe they’re just concerned that because they couldn’t make it, or but they did. It didn’t work that you can’t do it either, so rather than have those conversations with the people I love the most. I just decided i’m going to go out and do it, but I hadn’t figured out how i’m going to get out of the job for a week to go and record.
00:13:08.320 –> 00:13:26.780
So I told my boss. I said, Hey, listen! My brother Dave is getting married. Um! I need a week off for the wedding. You need a week off for a wedding. I do. You know how many Osmo is there? Are? You know how long the reception line is, I just had to make light of it. He let me have the week off, but what I didn’t tell him was that I was on my way to Nashville, Tennessee, to record for
00:13:26.790 –> 00:13:29.140
songs with Lone Star,
00:13:29.870 –> 00:13:31.959
and then I went to the wedding.
00:13:33.480 –> 00:13:36.890
I have some of the biggest players in Nashville, Tennessee, on my album.
00:13:37.110 –> 00:13:42.599
I brought it home, and when my parents, my brothers, everybody listened to it. They said, When did this happen?
00:13:42.810 –> 00:13:47.659
And I thought to myself exactly when nobody was watching,
00:13:48.090 –> 00:13:53.150
and that’s what you got to do. If you want to go, do something in life. Go, do it.
00:13:53.160 –> 00:14:09.649
I tell you these guys have become good friends of mine When I went out there to record, there’s the little air that I got to sleep in their studio right there on the floor, right below all their platinum, albums and everything. And you know what you got a dream. Go after it. Why, you why not you
00:14:09.680 –> 00:14:29.290
can. You can think of anyone else better than you to have this happen to, you know. And this I look back, and I see where that one decision to go out to pursue a dream where it led. You know none of these experiences that you’re seeing on the screen right now would have ever happened if I had never taken that leap of faith to go after a dream. A vision of what I believed was possible
00:14:29.300 –> 00:14:40.459
at one point in time. In this microphone I’m speaking on. Used to just be a dream, right? Everything that you see around you at one point in time was nothing more than just an idea or a dream.
00:14:40.590 –> 00:14:46.610
So what dreams are you fostering within your mind and within your heart? Do you believe that you can win?
00:14:46.760 –> 00:14:52.080
Do you believe that you have the goods to make it? Because there’s going to be everyone in their dog telling you why you can’t,
00:14:52.220 –> 00:15:06.560
So you gotta get tough in life, and you just gotta go. Just go do it. Nike has a great slogan. Just do it right, and that’s what we got to do is run with our dreams. Don’t ask permission to go after what it is that you want in life. Tom knew what he wanted,
00:15:06.570 –> 00:15:16.810
and he went after it. Now look at it. How many, how many millions of people your out there’s lives are going to be changed because of that, i’m going to tell you one last story here. I love this story
00:15:17.010 –> 00:15:19.970
because I believe in the power of one.
00:15:19.980 –> 00:15:42.110
I believe, as I’ve listened to Tom here today how powerful the power one is. Uh! There was a guy named Josh that will talk Josh for Lawrence Chamberlain. He was a professor of rhetoric, and he served during a crazy time in our nation’s history during a civil war when we fought against ourselves. And I want to show you a picture of this man, Joshua, Lawrence, Chamberlain, Colonel, and the Union army of the Twentieth Main,
00:15:42.120 –> 00:16:00.900
and this gentleman right here was given a very hard order. You see, there’s the twentieth main soldiers right there. These are the actual guys, but on July the second one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three Joshua Lawrence chamberlain, was on the far left edge of eighty thousand men. They’ve been dwindled down to a small number of eighty thousand. They had a lot more than that.
00:16:00.920 –> 00:16:14.409
But what happened on that day is uh the South is coming up through uh the Valley of Death. In fact, they came right down because they’re gonna come right here through Devil’s Dan, they’re gonna come right up here, guys, and it all hazards
00:16:14.420 –> 00:16:25.660
and all hazards. You were to hold them back, Josh, with Lawrence Chamberlain, because if they come over this wall they will take the higher ground, and they will wipe us out in this little town called Gettysburg.
00:16:26.160 –> 00:16:30.289
So they gave him those orders that all hazards you hold the line
00:16:30.790 –> 00:16:47.040
well at two thirty pm. On that afternoon the fifteenth and the Forty-seven and Alabama attacked, and they attacked with that readable Yale. That rebel yell was so piercing. It just made you your heart pound and want to run. But they stood there ground it all hazards. They pushed them back on the first run.
00:16:47.050 –> 00:16:54.280
On the second run they pushed him back on the fourth chart. Third charged. He actually uh They got over the wall, and they pushed him back.
00:16:54.440 –> 00:17:09.319
But there was black hotter and smoke and and gunfire going off, and and bayonets and everything else, and they barely pushed them back from the fourth charge. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain takes a bullet to the Belt buckle boom. He thought he was a dead man,
00:17:10.329 –> 00:17:16.399
but he realized he was okay, and the guys were able to finally push him back over over the fourth after the fourth charge,
00:17:16.410 –> 00:17:32.649
and after this for charge they were completely out of ammunition. They had no bullets. In fact, they were down to just about eighty men. Tom and his brother James were there as well. He had two brothers fighting his brother. Uh Tom comes out of, he says, do we sound in the retreat? He goes? No.
00:17:32.660 –> 00:17:36.949
Tell your brother James keep his head down with three of us here. This could be a bad day for momma
00:17:37.210 –> 00:17:45.199
man. Three brothers, Sergeant Tozer comes over, he says. Do we sound the retreat? He says, no fix bay and nets
00:17:45.340 –> 00:17:53.010
they don’t pull. They start putting still on still, and they’re thinking, This guy’s, nuts he’s. What do we do? He says, exercise a great right. We all
00:17:53.460 –> 00:17:55.070
I like What?
00:17:55.680 –> 00:17:57.600
What’s a great right wheel?
00:17:58.170 –> 00:18:02.600
One man says the kernel intends to charge,
00:18:05.000 –> 00:18:09.889
and before they could do anything. He takes out his kernel sword,
00:18:10.110 –> 00:18:12.100
and with faith
00:18:12.140 –> 00:18:21.169
he throws it downhill. He says, Charge, charge! And over this wall eighty man with no bullets
00:18:21.700 –> 00:18:31.060
jump over the wall and into history, and we’re able to hold guys. They were able to hold over four hundred men at a gunpoint with no bullets.
00:18:31.390 –> 00:18:32.770
00:18:33.650 –> 00:18:35.060
00:18:35.090 –> 00:18:36.340
00:18:36.790 –> 00:18:38.269
00:18:38.340 –> 00:18:40.570
It’s just a complete miracle story.
00:18:40.620 –> 00:18:48.319
In fact, one guy was holding about a hundred guys, but Guy on point by a tree in Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain comes walking by, and he says, Sir,
00:18:48.520 –> 00:19:04.960
I have no bullets, and he says to this man, well, don’t tell them that he’s a real man. He wasn’t trained. He was a professor of rhetoric. He was the first guy to show up in the recruiting office. All right. We got ourselves a kernel. That’s how it worked back then.
00:19:04.970 –> 00:19:10.560
But he did the impossible, and and historians real smart people
00:19:10.680 –> 00:19:19.329
have studied this story, and they said that this one man’s move this one day changed the whole face of the United States of America.
00:19:19.880 –> 00:19:35.800
How one man, one professor, rhetoric, how’s that? Well, you see, if they say that if the South had won that battle in Gettysburg they would have won the entire Civil War, and if they had won the entire civil war, our country would look a lot more like Europe.
00:19:35.810 –> 00:19:49.530
It would have different countries, little small countries, more of a patchwork. We would not have had a military big enough on two sides to fight two wars with Hitler on one side, and here a heo on the other. During World War Ii
00:19:49.540 –> 00:19:55.980
and the United States would not have been there to do so many great things for so many other countries, but because one man one day
00:19:56.030 –> 00:20:00.410
decided he was going to at all hazards, Hold the line,
00:20:01.250 –> 00:20:03.860
he and eighty- with no bullets.
00:20:04.400 –> 00:20:06.460
We’re able to do the impossible,
00:20:06.580 –> 00:20:12.920
so I thought this cannot be the same arm loop and fighting. They have to been reinforced, and they quit. They gave up,
00:20:13.790 –> 00:20:19.620
you know. An interesting story happened to, because later on that man and became the governor of Maine.
00:20:19.950 –> 00:20:21.460
00:20:21.730 –> 00:20:24.759
and on one random day
00:20:25.010 –> 00:20:29.059
he receives a random anonymous letter on his desk.
00:20:29.650 –> 00:20:31.609
And it says, this:
00:20:31.630 –> 00:20:40.570
dear sir, I want to tell you of a little passage in the battle of Little Round to Gettysburg is turning you and me, which I am now glad of.
00:20:40.590 –> 00:20:53.249
Twice in that fight I had your life in my hands. I got a safe place between two rocks and drove bead fair and square on you. You were standing in the open behind the center of your line, full exposed.
00:20:53.360 –> 00:20:59.950
I know your rank by your uniform and actions, and I thought it might be good thing to put you out of the way.
00:21:00.230 –> 00:21:04.089
I rested my gun on the rock and took steady aim.
00:21:04.370 –> 00:21:09.530
I started to pull the trigger, but some strange notion stopped me.
00:21:09.790 –> 00:21:14.750
Then I got ashamed of my weakness, and went through the same emotions again.
00:21:14.850 –> 00:21:17.430
I had you practically certain
00:21:17.780 –> 00:21:26.309
but that same strange something shut right down on me. I couldn’t pull the trigger and gave it up. That is your life.
00:21:26.440 –> 00:21:34.490
I am glad of it now, and hope you are you yours truly, a member of the fifteenth Alabama.
00:21:35.680 –> 00:21:38.100
This is real history, Ladies and gentlemen.
00:21:38.330 –> 00:21:45.830
The reason I tell you this story is, uh, there’s a great book that says that I days are known, and that year shall not be numbered less.
00:21:46.970 –> 00:21:51.340
It also says that if you’re still here, your mission is. You get to be completed.
00:21:51.550 –> 00:21:55.340
The key is finding purpose in what it is that you do daily.
00:21:55.390 –> 00:21:59.929
One man made one move one day that changed the entire face of the earth.
00:21:59.980 –> 00:22:18.060
You changed the whole country that we know of today, and I’m forever grateful for that. I wanted to share one last thing here, if I can, because I love history, and I got this from my good friend Andy Anders. Yes, I asked him. I can share this here, he said, absolutely. I was like to give him credit, but he said that Nathan,
00:22:18.150 –> 00:22:42.749
I love that story, Josh, for Lawrence Chamberlain, because I believe that we all make a difference. Every one of us has the power to change the world. One person can change the world, and I can prove it, he said. Really, I said, Yeah, this one night I was in my room ironing a shirt, and I had it in the other room. The television was on, and it was that person a week. Peter Jennings was talking about the person of the week for this week, and he was listening, and to see who the name was going to be so. The person of this week guys
00:22:42.760 –> 00:22:55.050
uh is Norman Borlaug. I’m going to show you guys, this Norman Borlaug, Norman Borlaug um ninety some one year old Norman Borla. I was being awarded person of the week because
00:22:55.140 –> 00:23:10.790
he had created a a hybridized type of corner. We need to be planted in in the you know, plains of Siberia and South Africa, and and in in South America, and it is literally um say the lives of over two billion people and counting
00:23:11.030 –> 00:23:20.229
one man, Norman Borlock, and he’s now being award for this and um. You see, Norman Borlaug, he was really upset because
00:23:20.820 –> 00:23:26.689
the Andy said that, you know I knew it wasn’t normal and Port Log to save the two that two billion people in counting,
00:23:26.910 –> 00:23:47.329
he said it was this: Henry Wallace, the Vice President and I’m going to pause the story here for a second. You see, the reason I bring up this butterfly effect is because this came from doctor named Edward Lorenz back in the one thousand nine hundred and sixty-three exactly. He was there, the New York Academy of Sciences, and he had this idea that that butterflies on the other side of the world
00:23:47.360 –> 00:23:48.430
00:23:48.560 –> 00:24:15.839
could flap their little butterfly wings, and it could move the air molecules which could then move more air molecules, and so on and so forth, until it can create actually a big hurricane or a storm on the other side of the world. It was ridiculous, but it was interesting. So it’s stuck around, and after further inside of looking into this thing which he called the butterfly effect, they actually found out that it was actually viable, and worked every single time, and not just with butterflies, but with every form of moving matter, including humans. Which is Why, i’m going to show you the story.
00:24:15.850 –> 00:24:45.039
In fact, they actually gave the butterfly effect the status of a law. They, the the acts like the law of gravity. The butterfly effect is better known as the law of sensitive dependence upon initial conditions. This is huge. You’re going to see how this ties into this story now, because he says it Wasn’t, or from a board log to save the two billion people in county, was Henry Wallace, the Vice President, under under Roosevelt, and people say, Well, I thought Truman was the Vice president of the Roosevelt. You’re right. He had a couple of Vice Presidents, but it is very first Vice President was a guy named Henry Wallace,
00:24:45.050 –> 00:25:00.439
and while Henry Wallace had that position in that power of Vice President of the United States of America. He hired a a young Norman Borlock to go down to Mexico, open this post to learn how to hybridize corn and to save the lives of people.
00:25:00.450 –> 00:25:20.459
Well, so you think about it. It was really Henry Wallace, that, save the lives of two billion people and counting, unless perhaps maybe was just George Washington Carver. Now you guys have probably heard of George Washington Carver, if you like peanut butter or barbecue sauce, or worship, or sauce, or peanuts and sweet potatoes. Heck. The guy actually created the the Victory Garden, which fed half the United States during World War Ii.
00:25:20.470 –> 00:25:38.739
But when he was a young Uh student at Iowa State University. He had a dietary Sciences professor that was, send their students out on Saturdays and Sundays on these botanical expeditions, and he would allow his little nine year old son to accompany George Washington Carver as they go out and look at these plants, and
00:25:38.920 –> 00:26:05.519
while he’s flapping his butterfly wings on peanuts and creating all those different products. And over here on sweet potatoes, creating all those products in the Victory garden. When nobody was looking, he flapped his butterfly with wings into the heart of a young Henry Wallace teaching, and what plants could do, and the possibility to change humanity and the possibility to save lives. So if you really start to think about, I don’t. I think, that George Washington Carver deserves that award person of the week don’t you,
00:26:06.030 –> 00:26:12.019
unless maybe just. Maybe it was the farmer from Diamond, Missouri,
00:26:12.030 –> 00:26:33.100
Moses and Susan. Now they lived in a slave state, but they didn’t believe in slavery, which caused a lot of problems with these Radicals, like Quantro’s raiders that would come in and shoot people and burn barns and still horses. And one day they came on Mo Moses and Susan’s farm, and they started doing the exact same thing, shot a few people burned their bar and stole their horses and rode off with this one lady named Mary
00:26:33.110 –> 00:26:39.589
Mary Washington, because she refused to let go of her little infant baby boy.
00:26:39.690 –> 00:26:59.569
Now Susan and Mary were best friends. So this made Susan very distraught, and so, rather than just mourn and be sad about what happened, Moses decided to do something. You see, he hung a poster over here and acquired over here, and a few days later was actually able to align a meet up with a offshoot group of quant trails raiders.
00:26:59.580 –> 00:27:17.939
So on a cold January night. In the middle of the night, at a crossroads in Kansas, they could come riding up on their horses with their burlap sacks on their heads, and the the holes cut out for their eyes. And Moses get stand off of this horse, and they throw to him in this burly lap, sack something for which they traded his only horse,
00:27:17.950 –> 00:27:19.899
and they wrote off in the night.
00:27:20.470 –> 00:27:38.590
Well, Moses gets down on his hands in his knees, and he opens up this burlap sack, and he pulls out this frozen, almost dead baby boy, and he opens up his shirty stuff, that baby and his shirt next to his warm skin, and he walked that baby out, talking to him, promising him that he would raise this child as his own, because he knew that
00:27:38.600 –> 00:27:40.989
that his mother Mary, had already been killed.
00:27:41.530 –> 00:27:50.200
And this is how Moses and Susan Carver came to raise that little boy, George Washington. They gave them their last name.
00:27:50.620 –> 00:27:59.579
So if you stop and think about it, guys wasn’t it really the farmer from Diamond, Missouri that saved the lives of over two billion people and counting
00:28:00.670 –> 00:28:12.310
unless and that’s the point. We could go on and on and on. Who knows who it was that made that one move that one day that to save the lives of over two billion people in counting, and who knows who it will be in your life?
00:28:12.320 –> 00:28:42.150
I mean, there are generations. You have them born whose very existence depend on what you do today and tomorrow and the next day, because everything that we do matters just like Josh, when Lawrence Chamberlain. Look at the effect that that one professor or rhetoric made that one day on July the second one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three think about the people whose lives you’re going to change just like that movie. It’s a wonderful life. I called this the George Bailey effect. He wished he had never been born in the movie, and then God gave him an opportunity to see how the world would have been had he not been born
00:28:42.540 –> 00:29:02.069
guys. Every one of us makes a difference, and not just for one or two of three of us. But for all of us, because everything that you do matters every single time. I’m gonna wrap this up here with one last story. This is David Bach. He wrote all these great books. He he’s got a great library. There you go read fantastic books, you know. I was working with him,
00:29:02.280 –> 00:29:15.290
and uh, we’re at the Copic at Ban in New York City. First time I had worked with the guy, and I’ve seen him on Oprah’s debt diet and read his books, and he comes up to me. He’s probably just practicing his topic. Because, Nathan Osman, do you want to be rich? What do you think I said? Oh, yeah,
00:29:15.580 –> 00:29:20.699
he says. Got you? That’s a trick question. Everybody says they want it to be rich. Here’s the real question.
00:29:20.840 –> 00:29:23.969
Why? Why do you want to be rich?
00:29:24.050 –> 00:29:32.589
And then we start talking about things that really mattered. Our family, our lives, our legacies, travel in the world, experiences that we give to our children.
00:29:32.830 –> 00:29:39.219
You know all that matters. And so I I always thought about that. Why? Because you see, that’s the thing.
00:29:39.410 –> 00:29:43.650
This is what really rich riches and and wealth is to me,
00:29:43.690 –> 00:29:57.690
and there’s even a great billboard on the free way. I saw, because sometimes we buy into the idea that we work for a company, or supervisor, or logo, or a slogan, or whoever but this side of the sign right here. Change in my life. It says, people, the people that you work for waiting for you at home.
00:29:58.830 –> 00:30:00.760
Think about that message for a minute.
00:30:01.180 –> 00:30:07.019
Who’s depending on you to make that one move today? It’s going to change their future.
00:30:07.450 –> 00:30:27.730
It’s the high way of inspiration right there. Guys, if you want to read a great book or read this one answers for meaning by Dr. Victor Frankel. This man was he a survivor of three Nazi death camps. He had his entire Life’s work ripped out of his hands in his briefcase that he worked on his whole life and burned into fires. He exited the train at A. At a concentration camp.
00:30:27.980 –> 00:30:49.960
His wife was ripped from his arms and his in-laws, and other people, and every one of them died he survived three Nazi death camps. Why? Because he had a He has something bigger than him waiting outside those gates. This is barred wires and those towers with the machine guns. He had to restore what was burned in front of him. His life’s work. It was so big it was bigger than him, and it kept him alive.
00:30:50.240 –> 00:31:16.119
And he says in his first chap, he says, Don’t, aim at success, for success, like happiness cannot be pursued. It must ensue, and can only do so as an unintended side effect to one’s dedication to a cause greater than one self. Now that’s fancy talk, so he breaks it down in the very next sentence he says, if you know your why, you can enter almost anyhow. Do you know why you want to be well, wealthy? Do you know why you have the goal that you have? Do you know What is it bigger than you? Is it bigger than money?
00:31:16.600 –> 00:31:28.480
It’s Got it to be bigger than all those things, and if you’ll make your why big enough, you can endure almost anyhow. And this is your friend at the Osmond, saying, I believe in you they’ll make it happen.
00:31:28.990 –> 00:31:58.770
Thank you so much for having me on Here, guys, I want to give you guys a little gift. Hope you guys will go subscribe to my podcast, too. But I want to. I want to give you guys something here. If you get a chance, go ahead and text the word home, and I want to send you a free song, and there’s my email address right there. If I could ever be of assistance. Let me know what I could do for you guys. But thank you so much, Tom Painter, for having me on the show today. Sure appreciate you. Thanks, Nathan. You know It’s amazing listening to that last talk that you did. And I think my most favorite movie is It’s a wonderful life.
00:31:58.780 –> 00:32:09.220
Yes, uh such a great show. Isn’t it, it’s my father’s favorite show, too,
00:32:09.650 –> 00:32:16.600
that movie, and that he did. That made a huge difference, And the same is true with you
00:32:16.640 –> 00:32:28.629
the small and simple things that you’re doing. You are having effect. You’re putting that little pebble in the water, and it’s having ripple effects. And When you look at the influencer, the leaderboard,
00:32:28.640 –> 00:32:43.099
you can see those little things that you’ve done, and the thousands and thousands of hours that people are getting the education that they need to change their life. You know this problem with social media. That’s all over the place, you know. There’s there’s no connection to it.
00:32:43.280 –> 00:33:09.079
The foundation is step by step. What you do. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, and it’s the best. It’s the best that’s out there. So you don’t have to surf through all this stuff. You can basically get that college education on success and money just by doing it online. My good friend, Nathan Osman. Um, you know. Download uh, you know. Reach out to him uh give one of those great songs I love his stuff that he’s done. His music is wonderful. His family is wonderful, and he is
00:33:09.090 –> 00:33:10.620
really, truly um
00:33:10.820 –> 00:33:26.209
an artist in so many ways, not only an artist and music, but an artist in words, and then deeds, and an artist for making a difference. People’s lives. This is Tom Painter. Thank you so much for watching, and we’ll see you in another class.
