How’s everyone doing? Let me give you my philosophy about what’s going to happen here in the next couple of hours together. I believe time flies when you’re having fun. Are you okay with that? I want you to just sit back, relax, enjoy yourself, let your hair down if you’ve got it, and let’s have fun together. Now, there’s a few things that you should know about your speaker. I’m probably the only speaker you ever listened to that needs a little… Because the secrets to success are really attitudinal and not circumstantial. Trust me, they have nothing to do with what’s happening in the market; absolutely nothing. They have nothing to do with what’s happening in your relationships right now; absolutely nothing. They have to do with your attitudinal – you say, “Oh here he goes, he’s going to give us that little attitude speech, oh my goodness!” You bet, because it’s the cornerstone of everything you and I do that helps us become successful in life and guess what, some of you heard it, but you’re not doing anything about it. Is that fair? And then you wonder why, since your attitude stinks, you’re still getting the same results. So until that attitude changes, and trust me, there’s going to have to be some strategy involved if we’re going to make that happen, but once we do it will turn us on a dime. Why? Having a bad attitude is like peeing your pants; everyone else can see it, but only you can feel it. That’s good right there, isn’t it? Come on. She’s like writing that down. I’m putting that on the water cooler tomorrow there. It’s so true. Here’s what happened. I went home that day and I didn’t know what the diagnosis was going to be. We had a week to determine what the biopsy was going to look like, the margins, and so on. I had no clue and if you know anything about melanoma, you know this, it goes quick and it metastasizes into your brain, into your spine, and into every fiber of your being in maybe, 6 to 9 weeks and you’re gone. So I went home and I thought, you know what – if I’ve got nine weeks, I probably ought to start figuring out what that nine weeks needs to be about because I’m 34 years old and I don’t know why God put me here, so maybe I should start on the path of discovery. So I wrote this at the top of the pad – this might be your best exercise to discover it. I wrote this at the top. My purpose in life is… I started writing. I didn’t do any judging, I just started writing – My purpose in life is… I’d write a sentence and I’d look at it nah, that’s not it. Then I’d write the next one, My purpose in life is… and I’d write another sentence and I’d say, nah,
