Helping other people he’s with us right frequency and we’re ready to go.
Thank you, man, you’re awesome.
Thank you break down what get! Let’s get ready for this jump pop yeah.
I feel like i’m rambling, so much as i do so often.
I don’t know what that was: it’s okay, cheers so good.
So in the jump box we like to have our guests come on and then they give a little tip for the people out there for our audience.
Sometimes you just need a little something that’ll help you get your day going, sometimes that just adding that little jump box onto the battery for two seconds that car kicks over.
So you thought it was completely dead and then the battery’s good to go again.
It’s just a little bit of help.
I know glenn, you have a lot of great things that you’ve put out there.
You’ve, i’ve watched a lot of your podcast i’ve seen a lot of your um, the guests that you’ve had on your show and they’ve, given out a lot of tips.
So we absolutely would love for you to throw one out there for our audience to let them know hey.
You do something like this.
This will change your life or this could make your day better.
What would that be? If you were to throw something out there? Glenn, my goodness man.
Well, the main thing.
That’s been resonating a lot with me.
Lately you mentioned the word.
You know frequencies and i’m all about trying to get into that incredible frequency, which is why i’m all about like morning, routines those types of things, the things that we do to start our day, but once you’re in frequency.
I think it’s super important that you open yourself up to receive and to absorb whatever it is the universe god.
Whatever word you want to use, is trying to teach you in that particular moment or season.
So the reason that i preface everything with that is lately, what’s really been resonating with me and what i want to share with that one person: that’s listening to the podcast today or one person, that’s watching um today that maybe is just feeling uh, maybe maybe a Little less than maybe they’re feeling a little stuck, maybe they’re feeling, like you, know, they’re kind of trudging through the day they’re going through the motions but they’re not really getting anywhere and they’re, not real sure how they can get there right.
They see people around them that are thriving, that are succeeding that are growing and it’s frustrating they’re, like i’m doing the right things.
I think i’m doing the right things, i’m trying to do things, but i’m not getting there, and so i want to talk to you.
If that is you, i want to talk to you this morning, i want to share uh one one, one, quick story that i recently heard a quick little metaphor.
I think it was les brown td jakes.
One of those guys was talking about uh.
You know the the the acorn right like this this this, this acorn man, it’s it’s got everything in it.
It’s got everything in it that ultimately, it needs to become a big massive tree right, like everything it’s all already there like from the outside.
It just kind of looks like a like a nut right.
It just looks like a nut, but literally everything that it needs everything that it will ever need everything that it needs to be great to become this big grand massive tree already exists in that little tiny nut, and i think sometimes we get caught up in the.
If i had this, then i could, if i were around this person, then i could.
If i do what they do, then i could.
If i had not lost what i lost then i could have, and i think sometimes we get stuck in that, and so i want to talk to you.
If that’s you today, if you’re in a position where you’re like, if i could, if i had if i would, if i had not have, i want you to shake that this morning, i want you to shake that this morning.
I want you to know and understand that everything that you need to be great.
It’s already in you, it’s been in you from the get-go.
We just got to make sure that it gets planted right right.
We got to make sure that it gets nurtured.
We got to make sure that it gets fertilized, it’s not about bringing in something new, it’s about extracting, what’s already in you, and that takes intention that takes in purpose a lot of purpose, and so what i suggest to you today, you’re wanting to make the moves.
You’re feeling a little frustrated, you’re feeling a little stuck, because i want you to take a look around.
Take a look around at your life.
Take a look around all of the things that you do have, let’s take a look at where you are.
Where are you right now not: where do you want to go? Not where do you want to be not where? Where did you used to be? Where are you today, and the bible itself says that every miracle, every miracle is always created with what we have what’s left, what is left in your life that you can be grateful for if you start to focus on those things, become a master of the things That are left the things that you have access to the resources that you currently have become a master to those, and you will extract that greatness that exists inside you.
You will bloom, you will blossom.
You will become that big, massive giant tree that people stare at in awe in time, but for now master where you are focus on what’s left understand that the miracle is in you and you are not just a nut.
You are a great and mighty tree, come on wow how’s that for a start i just took so many notes.
I just took all kinds of notes.
You know one easy question turned into a beautiful answer.
I think that if you are out there guys and you’re in you’re searching for something like you’re looking, you feel like you have to look for outside sources to help you get to where you need to go.
It’s not true.
You have it inside you, glenn said.
I mean he’s the bible said folks.
We all have the power inside of us, it’s a beautiful thing which you can do when you have the right mindset, glenn put it down and he laid it out there for us very clearly, and i love the words that he used because man you’re a master Of wordsmith, i love how you put things together.
You you’re you’re, unbelievable to listen to and when the way you you just made that just come together.
You know i’ve heard different ways of saying it, but the way you said it is just so simple yet complex enough to make you feel like.
I need to listen to this and man things like master of what you have.
Oh no he’s over here about the person it seems.
Lou always does i love that about luke, but you know master of what you have that’s right.
I love that.
That’s it’s! It’s uh! That’s! I want to make a shirt that says that i’m the master of what i have, because it’s true you know and when you focus on those things when you focus on the gratitude.
Just like you talk about on your daily routine you’re in your morning, five and i implemented the gratitude thing immediately after i read your book a year and a half ago, and i was like man this gratitude thing.
I do it a little bit different.
I do mine in the middle of the day, but because i because i use that to help me lift back up in the middle of the day when i’m kind of down right.
So i use that and i have a little a whole book that i use write my gratitude and it’s so true that power of understanding what you do have is everything you need, and i absolutely agree with that statement.
I have everything i need the i just deserve more.
You know i said abundance should come to me.
I you know we all should have the abundance and that’s right.
I’m going to let lou talk cause.
I could tell lou’s like ready to buzz at the scene, but glenn that’s exactly dead on folks, if you guys are looking for something look inside yourself, because i promise you, if you search yourself and you give yourself more credit than you than you just you think You should have, i promise you you’re going to go so much further than you than you could ever imagine.
What do you say? What do you have to say that blue? Well, i mean to echo the the egg corn right.
I don’t know about that.
Oh, my god that was beautiful yeah if it was um dutch sheets or uh damon thompson, i’m kind of caught in between there, too, of a couple of different people that expanded on that that understanding of the acorn and the way that they described it was that There’s a forest in here inside of this one acorn is an entire forest, so beyond just the tree wow that tree will contain many many acorns right that will grow into a deep rooted oak right that entire forest, it does run back in line with and and Speaking of the bible, the seedtime harvest parable right.
Jesus said that if you can understand seedtime and harvest, you can understand every single one of these parables.
Okay, you can understand that that as a man sews, he reaps, and there is the process of time.
So, though, you may have that egg corn, you have to deposit that acorn, you have to sow that right.
You can’t you can’t just take it and not use it.
It has to be sewn in be faithful with what you have sow.
It give it for god.
So loved the world that he gave the first he gave right we give of ourselves to other people, glenn gives of himself to other people in order to see growth out of a forest.
This acorn, that is the glenn lundy right, is impacting many many people to grow deep, deep roots and finding out the potential that they have to sow seeds amongst an entire planet, but there’s also the application of time.
You have to give seed that time to do multiple things, including die die to old understandings, die to the old form that they’re in right, so a seed once once it goes into the ground for those of you that don’t know the process of it.
It goes into the ground and it and it completely goes into death mode.
Then there’s an incredible power that ignites it to grow and push out of where it can’t be seen and reach towards light and glenn is doing that.
Car guy coffee podcast is trying to do that and pouring into so many people.
By turning on the light and exposing what it is that god has created in you, you’re never going to be glenn, lundy you’re, never going to be lou, ramirez, fred, lennart’s, you’re, never going to be any of these people you’re only going to be you, but that Does not change that the capabilities of greatness are able to come out of you once you unlock them by dying to old thoughts, old concepts.
Okay, just like a dead battery sometimes needs that jump box.
It needs to have an external source ignited with power in order for it to thrive and live again.
So here we are on the podcast.
Talking about these great things and glenn is, is one that i know he’s.
He he’s right there inside of our generation.
That knows about this one movie that i consider one of the greatest movies of all time.
It’s never going to win it’s a great movie.
It should have won oscar louise.
She should have won the oscars the globe, we’re going to have the glory with leroy, with bruce lee, roy and shonoff right and inside of that movie.
There is uh, willie cl, really watch a song, and it’s called inside you – and i play this throughout the show room to get the guys understanding that you are the last dragon and you possess the power of the globe.
We do not own the rights to this music, but this is what we listen to and we hear that it’s inside you it’s inside you.
Yes, sometimes you need to focus but know that that power is inside you inside you, folks.
I love it.
Oh, did i watch this movie a million times a million times, my goodness i put my kids through it, so hard go on the way with the dvd player we just kept watching it again.
They’re like oh, my gosh.
Are we done with this like wait, hold on a second watch? Look at this converse.
I love it just a little bit.
I want to expand on you know.
When i talk about uh, you know mastering what’s left right, some some people might be like okay.
Well, you know what what does that mean? What do what? What does that look like? How do i master? What’s left, i don’t i don’t i don’t.
I don’t have anything.
I don’t have anything glenn, i’m sitting in a i’m sitting in a in a one bedroom studio.
I’ve got you know nothing.
I don’t have family, i don’t have a connection, i’m financed.
I don’t have credit, i don’t know nothing.
How do i? How do you master? What’s left – and i want to to speak to that real quick, because if you’re listening to this podcast or you’re watching this live stream, then you have internet at some point right somewhere.
Somehow you have internet or otherwise you wouldn’t be able to hear this and so start there.
You see i’m a master.
I know that the internet is a tool to my success, so i’ve become a master of the internet, you’ll notice.
Every time that i talk every time that i refer every time that i um share an idea, a thought or whatever, like i don’t claim to be genius whatsoever right back in the actual in in the roman days.
This is actually a modern concept.
The concept of genius is a modern concept.
It is not an old concept.
Back in the old days they used to have um, they used to believe they used to truly believe that, like homes, certain homes or certain people had a genius which was a spirit or a deity that existed in their home in their property or so or whatsoever.
So when people came up with incredible ideas, concepts, beliefs, success so on and so forth back then they would say that that person has a genius, not that that person is a genius, but that person has a genius big difference and see.
When you have a genius.
Someone that gives you ideas and thoughts, and so on and so forth, when you have that it’s actually really good for the ego right.
If i have a genius, then i can only attribute success partly to me and partly to my genius.
I can’t get big-headed or inflated or egotistical, or think that i’m the man right, because i have to share that with an outside source, an outside spirit and outside energy right on the other side, if i fail at the same time it’s kind of nice on my Ego, i don’t have to take it all on me.
I don’t have to say well, i’m the only you know.
This was all my creation, i can say hey, you know what i fell down, but my genius, my spirit, my energy, that’s with me, is still here with me to lift me back up, i’m not alone in my failures right and so everything that i referred to And and all of the knowledge – and you talk about me being able to speak well and all of those things i have to give credit to a genius, i mastered the internet, man, i master it.
I i study the greats i study et.
I study les brown.
I study the bible, i study uh, you know td jakes, i studied jim rohn, i studied jim maxwell or john maxwell.
I read lots and lots and lots of different books.
I consume i’m seeking for simon sinek and all of these other human beings right.
I’m a master of the internet, and so, if you just have that one piece, whether it be you have to walk two and a half miles to go down to the library, get your library card and go sit down and sit on a computer for an hour.
Become a master of it, use other people’s genius, bring them in and you can master that so i just wanted to kind of clarify on that point.
When i’m talking about mastering, what’s left literally take a look around, i know there’s sales people in the industry they’re like i want to be a sales manager.
I want to be a finance manager.
I want to be a gsm.
Why can’t i get a shot? Why won’t they give me a chance? How come i’m not lucky enough? How come i don’t get this why’d? He get that.
Why didn’t i get that and i’m just telling you listen, dude just master.
What you’ve got.
I promise the rest will come.
I always wanted to be a gm, that’s what i wanted to be, but i never ever tried to force or impress that upon anyone else.
I never let anyone else’s success or anyone else control my ultimate destiny.
I just became a master salesperson.
I was a master dude.
You can look at my numbers, you can look at my stats.
You talk to my old customers.
I was a master.
I mastered my products, i mastered the process.
I was an absolute master person, that’s what got me promoted to sales manager.
Then i became a master sales manager which got me promoted to be in a gsm.
Then i became a master gsm and that’s how i became a gm, so master where you are.
My man master, where you are with what you must want and you will grow and you will shine that applies to everything in life.
You know your relationships, master, your your personal relationships, master, your relations with your children, your friends with you know with everything i.
I absolutely think that is amazing way to think, because there’s a lot of people out there that are always looking for the next thing.
They’re not looking for how amazing that they have what they have currently and how much more they have room for growth.
You did your on your in your um rise and grind elite.
You did you had us, do an impact score.
You know i when i went through my impact score.
I i honestly i thought about rating higher, but i sat there and i really thought deep glenn and i thought i could go higher because in a lot of people’s eyes, i’m higher in a lot of these spots.
But i also know that i have so much potential.
I have so much more inside me that i need to let out that i haven’t unleashed yet it’s my own what i have already right.
So i know that if i tap into that – and i have you know – glenn’s rising grind – you know hashtag rising, grind elite group to help me get there.
It’s gon na be accountability even more, so it’s gon na be a lot of fun and i’m really excited about that.
But i put an impact score of 40.
I believe it was right and obviously the max is 77.
, but i felt like yeah my career is a great career.
I mean in the eyes of the local car business.
I have a great career.
I should be closer to the 10-11 mark, but in my eye i see potential.
I see that i’m more like a five or six.
I can really just if it’s, and maybe i’m lower than that really because i don’t want to like say: okay, i only need to go up two steps.
I want to go up so much more.
I almost want to put one, but i didn’t do that because i felt like that’d be crazy right.
So i was like you know, i’m gon na put.
There’s i’m pretty happy, you know, don’t get me wrong.
I love what i do.
I have a great job.
I work for a great owner.
I have great people i work with like lou ramirez and my wholesale staff.
I love them everybody from my top salesperson down to the newest guy.
I absolutely every single one of those guys that i that work with me my teammates.
I have a passion for those guys that i just hope that they one day are doing what i’m doing, what you’re doing glenn and just and they can look back and that’s part of my legacy is that i help these guys get to that next level.
That’s right um, but yes, it’s all inside you, folks, everything that you need just like that, acorn, just like everything else, it’s right there inside you.
You just need to just understand it’s there and plant, it sow it.
Let it happen, let it grow and then, if you really you water it, you fertilize it, you do everything you need to make that seed.
What it needs to be.
I promise you, if you take care of it, it’s going to be the biggest tree that it’s just going to bring shade to everything that you need.
It’s going to bring you the fruit that you need to pull off and harvest.
It’s going to give you everything that you possibly possibly ever can eat in life and glenn’s right.
It’s all inside you already.
You have so much power there.
It’s unbelievable! I love it.
Man i mean guys.
I mean i really love the last dragon.
I mean that’s inside of that he does he’s the best.
The the concept at the beginning of the movie was reaching the the final level reaching the next level and he’s dealing with his his the master right he’s dealing with his sensei and trying to figure out how to get to that next level.
And so he goes on to this mission to see and to find the answer outside and hunt around now folks, if you’re vulnerable to the things outside of you, they can affect the things inside of you negative and positive okay.
So whatever darts are coming at you all right, if you’re not rooted properly inside, you can topple right.
Your your foundation can break if it’s not deeply rooted in and the entire flow of the entire movie was about who’s.
The master right showing up is walking around talking about who’s, the master, who’s, the master right, showing off showing up and at the end of the movie, when leroy gets the glow.
That one question is asked one more time.
One more time give me goosebumps yes, so there comes that point where leroy realizes all of this mission to find this next level is not outside of me.
It’s in me.
The potential is in me to begin to explode that glow.
I need to realize there is never going to be anything outside of me.
That’s going to create anything greater than what’s already inside of me.
What’s in me, needs to at times get reactivated needs to get a little bit of another spark.
That’s it just like a jump box just need a little bit of other energy to juice, that up so that you can reach the final level inside of your life and folks, there is no real final level.
We don’t know what it looks like in the full eternal flow.
We are eternal beings – okay, this little tiny of life that we have here on earth in this little shell right is so fleeting.
It’s so quick.
There is so much in the cosmos that we can’t even comprehend yet no, but when we reach the depths of understanding who it is that we are inside.
We take deep, looks at going over the numbers in our self taking an honest approach of what it is that we have uh and where it is that we have to grow man.
Our growth potential becomes incredibly want to find the right word there, because i’m kind of feeling it so much but glenn helps other people.
We’re trying to help other people do that here and it’s so great when the when the energies and all come together and we’re able to explode into an entire people group to bring hope to bring love and to see growth in other people, guys it’s inspiring.
If you’re, not inspired by glenn lundy and the mission that he’s on to make sure that people rise and grind each and every day, finding their full potential well, folks, you need to go get the jump box, because there might be something wrong with your battery.
Okay, because he is he’s an incredible individual he’s an exciting person, and i mean he brings such energy into this room that that i cannot explain how pumped up we get just sitting here, waiting to have the conversation and have some fun but here’s another kentuckian.
That’s doing great things folks.
This has been a great time.
Uh that we’ve been able to spend here in the car guy cafe.
Make sure that you share share, share, share, share share around okay.
If you need somebody, if you know somebody that needs a little bit of a jump box inside of their life, if you know somebody that needs to realize, there’s great potential inside of them just share this with them.
You might speak to your blue in the face to get a person to understand the potential that’s inside of them, but share this around.
Let them have some fun.
Let them laugh a little bit.
Matt crinky great beans, yeah back drinking smart pet he’s he’s a great guy.
Great followers he’s a good person he’s with a smart payment plan, company and uh man they’re a good company they’re doing some things out there and they’re really trying to help people find a way to budget their life a little bit better and pay off cars.
A little bit quicker and mortgages the whole nine program, if you guys have any questions about that, get a hold of me or lou um.
But another thing i want to throw out really quick folks, if you guys are loving what glenn’s talking if you’re, if you’re liking, what he’s laying out there for you, you need to go to his go to his website.
Com he’s got a lot of different programs.
He’s got a free book on there.
If you guys we talked about the morning five, you need to go on there and read that thing.
I’m telling you it’s a very quick, easy read: it’s going to give you a little history about glenn where he came from the the trials and tribulations and what changed him in this morning.
Five was a big part of that for him, so folks go check that out the morning five, it’s a great book, but then on there you’ll see about his 800 club you’ll, see about the rise and grind elite.
Folks are still time me and lou are in this group, there’s a ton of other people very much like lou, and i and glenn that are there just trying to uplift each other, much like how we do with our cafe, except for it’s a tighter group, and It’s just: oh, it’s beautiful folks, come check out that rising ground elite too, because glenn glenn comes on there and he’s he’s helping you.

Let’s go morning, five glenn.
We are about to close the hood on this jump box session.
Is there anything you want to do to take us home as uh? We make sure that everybody answers the question of who’s the master and they say that i am i mean you got the globe tie on.
I mean they’re they’re glowing with the tie right there, my goodness the golden glow.
Just like we’re going great.
It’s awesome anything! You want to do to take a slope.
I’m going nuts over here, hey man, there’s no more there’s, no there’s, no two more powerful, powerful words in the english language than i am whatever whatever comes after that sentence is, is your reality, man there’s a book called the alchemist by paulo coelho, which is it’s.
It’s basically the the last dragon in in book form um, but it takes takes place a long long long time ago, and this guy’s got to go on this incredible journey to ultimately discover the power that is within him.
It’s an incredible book if you ever get a chance to read it, but just think about it.
I am right all the way back biblical times.
God used those words to describe who he was in our lives and who we were in his and so anything positive or negative.
That follows that i am statement becomes your truth.
So keep that in mind when you’re saying i am fat, i am ugly.
I am not worthy, i am not enough enough you’re right as long as you continue to tell yourself that you will always be right.
Transform those words to i am beautiful.
I am a child of god.
I am capable.
I am able.
I am great.
I am powerful, i am a creator, you change it to those words, your frequency instantly changes, the universe will bend around you and you will find that that exists inside.
You know have nothing left to say on this.
One just drop that mic real, quick bam.
Real again, people that drop mics right, don’t know the value and how much mike’s cost huh, but you dropping some real knowledge glenn.

So it was like one o’clock in the morning.
I guess it was one o’clock in the morning and i was laying in bed my two-year-old was in bed with me and normally uh my girlfriend, my two, my two-year-old mom.
She was um, she never like went out.
She never did anything like.
I was always you know.
I was the guy that worked from eight in the morning till eight nine at night, and then i might go out with my buddies and drink a few beers or do whatever go to vegas as often as possible.
It was only three and a half hours from where i worked and lived at the time, and so she never went out.
But she was.
She went out this night with some of her girlfriends and she wasn’t the type to like go out late or party, or you know anything like that, so it was like yeah go out with your girlfriends i’ll see you later so i went to bed with my Two-Year-Old at uh at like 10, and i woke up at one o’clock in the morning.
She still wasn’t home and so i texted her she didn’t answer.
I tried calling her she didn’t answer, so i called her friends.
I was like hey man if, if you guys seen her she’s, you know she’s out and about she’s missing in action.
I’m scared there was snow on the roads.
I thought she might be in a ditch all kinds of other stuff.
They were like.
She left here at like nine o’clock.
I was like what it’s one in the morning.
She left there at nine, and so i loaded my two-year-old up in the car in uh in her pajamas and we went driving in the snow looking in the ditches trying to find um, you know my my girlfriend at the time my daughter’s mom trying to find Her and as we traveled and made our way across town uh on the other side of town.
Far from where i lived, i lived like six miles out of town and this was all the way on the other side of town.
So this was, you know, good 15-20 miles from the house, we’d been out there for a while calling texting.
All of that couldn’t find her scared to death called the ambulance called the jails called everybody and uh.
We come across barnes and noble parking lot and there i see the new, the brand new nissan pathfinder that i had bought her sitting in the barnes, noble parking lot and there’s another car sitting next to it, and so i pull up and there she is she’s In the car, with some dude right, like they’re like making out – and so i go, i go crazy, which glenn used to get crazy by the way i used to get crazy.
I go crazy.
This dude freaks out, you know he jumps in his car and takes off because he knows i’m about to kill him and uh and her and i fight jump back in the car.
We fight all the way back to the house and um long story short.
We end up.
We end up splitting up over that particular occasion right.
That was the end of our relationship, so fast forward a couple more years her and i stay somewhat friendly.
I guess you could say we stay somewhat friendly for a kit for our kid’s sake, but i’m still doing the same thing like i’m still working eight in the morning till nine at night.
Then, when i get off work, i’m going having a couple drinks with the buddies and then i’m heading out to vegas on the weekends doing all of those things and i’m burdened i’m burned.
When i have my ch when i have my child, i was burned by that because it kept me from doing some of the social things that i wanted to do, and so we stayed amicable for a little while and then she came and got her from me.
One day on a friday, she came and picked up my daughter um.
You know she was just gon na have her for the weekend and on and fast forward two days and she was supposed to bring her back and there was a knock on the door.
I thought it was her.
I’m like hey come in, you know i figured she was bringing my daughter back over and um it’s some guy at the door.
It’s a process server and this guy’s got uh.
He’s got papers that says that he uh you know she.
I’m not using her name on purpose, but my my ex-girlfriend wanted full custody of my daughter.
My daughter was six years old at this time, and so i got the papers.
I was like what this is crazy.
What’s she talking about she’s nuts, you know all that good stuff, and so i went.
We talked to a lawyer and so on and so forth and because we weren’t married, i wasn’t on the.
I was on the birth certificate, but i still was going to have to do a dna test and it was going to be 15 000 retainer and because i was always going to vegas and i was always going out to the bars – and i was always doing All those things i really didn’t have any money, and so i wasn’t able to pay the 15 000 to get the lawyer fast forward 30 days later and i lose full custody of my child.
I’m not allowed to see her, i’m not allowed to contact her.
I’m not allowed to do anything that moment of my life sent me on a spin man.
I was so mad at everybody, so mad at the world.
I felt like such a victim and i and i left and i blamed the auto industry.
I blamed her for cheating on me.
I blamed everyone and, as i spent that time in blame, it ultimately took me down a crazy path, man, a crazy path that, ultimately, i ended up, homeless, depressed and suicidal.
The reason that i share this with you as my car guy confession, is because i watch people in this business do exactly what i did every single day.
I watched them, do it and what i now realized.
Looking back that, i want all of you to be able to see and know and understand, is that she cheated on me, because i didn’t make her a priority.
I lost custody of my daughter because i didn’t make her a priority.
It wasn’t because it wasn’t her fault she cheated on me.
It was mine, it wasn’t the state’s fault that i lost custody, my daughter, it was mine, it wasn’t the car business’s fault that i lost my daughter.
It was mine, and so the lesson that i want you guys to learn from my mistake is dude make the ones that you love a priority.
We can get so caught up in this business selling that next car handling that next appointment, making sure that we’re.
You know we we’re coming in on our days off we’re hanging out with the boys afterwards we’re doing all of the things we’re spending all of our money as fast as we can turn it as fast as we can make it we’re blinging we’re high siding, we’re Riding in the nice cars we’re wearing the nice watches, we’re buying the mop blocks, we’re picking up the suits, we’re doing all of these things.
It’s begging, you, i’m begging you to just take a look and stop the auto industry is amazing man and it can take.
You places that no other industry that i know of can take you.
It is the only industry where you can walk in with no down payment, as i re as i say, you don’t have to have a nickel to your name.
You don’t have to have a college degree.
You don’t have to have any of those things and the auto industry can take you as far as you want to go, but don’t let it cloud the reality of why we’re here.
We are here on this planet to make a positive impact in other people’s lives.
The people that love you and that pour into you are far more important than anything that the car business has to offer, make your family a priority.
My friend make your finances a priority, my friend, and take this life and make the best of it.
Man that hit deep – oh, do you guys you’re right, i mean i’m, i’m speechless, i’m okay, just leaving it right there.
I love how open your your book is.
So real your book is so open and i and i i love reading from the pages you, you definitely have a great story.
I think a lot of people and what i love about it is that you know a lot of people like to highlight the good things in life.
All the oh hey.
I did this.
These are like my achievements and this and that you know to dig deep and to talk about mistakes and to talk about to really like how deep you went with that.
Like you put it on yourself and you and it’s true, you know, i know that any time that i’ve had any relationship issues any time i’ve had any type of problems.
It was all stemmed from my mentality, from where i was going, the toxic stuff that i was doing you know once i changed that and i completely made that thing like as lou talked about, i die, i let it die.
You know with like the seed before it started to grow.
I let it die so it could grow.
That’s that’s what happened and man glenn.
That’s that story.
You know, that’s why it took me on a roller coaster.
You know you talked about catching and i felt that i felt that emotion and i felt the emotion of like losing my child and i felt the emotion of like real life.
The realization of it was my fault.
I felt that too man and i it’s a beautiful thing – how far you’ve come it’s a beautiful thing, because if everybody can see that and that’s what’s so neat about who you are glenn, you are able to show people hey, i’m not just good all the time You know, because it’s very easy, you know you come off, you know when people just see you on the outside, they can say: hey rise and grind.
You know, you know, he’s a he’s, a god man and he does all this amazing stuff and he’s always sharing he’s trying to help, but he they don’t realize.
Sometimes you have to hear those stories and know that you can’t you had some darkness in your life at one point you know, and you had to learn from that, but we all need to go through things like that.
We all need to go through our failures.
So we can keep growing many of you have heard before to make to take your mess and make it your message.
That’s right and i’m looking forward to it, not the who was it.
That was on your show the other day.
She’s talking about victim, ease, right, yeah victimized.
You can’t be living speaking that type of language.
Yet you can’t do that um, but constantly speaking about.
Oh, woe is me: you’re, never going to rise uh to the to the level that you’re designed to rise to.
If you constantly stay low, blaming everybody else remember the answer is inside of you.
If you didn’t get the chance to listen to the jump box, folks, go back, go back and listen to it and understand that check out his father’s side of you and sometimes what’s falling apart, is because of what’s inside of you and what needs to have an Adjustment, so we are so honored to have glenn here to give you this car guy confessions session.
