Your work for years He says how important is loyalty to you I said very he says tell me the names of People that you trust trust trust That you know you can talk openly and I Gave nine names me and Adam for sure but Nine names I gave right and I give these Nine names and first name status I'm Giving these nine names and he says okay So you understand the bigger you get how Much harder it is to trust people Because of how many people backstab you Yes That guy's been backstabbed so many Times That the bigger you get it's harder to Trust more people And I totally agree with them now here's The benefit if a guy like that or me or Somebody that's going to be growing Businesses for many many years Takes a liking to you and starts working With you there's a very high likely Chance you're going to win that that's The that's the uh what what factor That's the X Factor when when there is Somebody behind closers like you know For me I'm not getting spiritual on you but I'm Convinced a lot of the things that Happen to me I'm convinced I've read a Book called David and Goliath it says People who are close who had a close Call of dying they feel they have a

Certain you know not connection like you Have certain favor like you think you're Supposed to do you're destined right It's a very interesting way he explains It but I think God's on my side and I Think God's on our side and I think what We're doing is a necessary message that We have and I think miracles happen Right there's a very unique confidence That show when you walk around known Somebody like that's got your back you Just walk different you talk different You process different you do things in a Different way when you know someone has It kids have that when they know who Their dad is you know players do that When they have a coach a coach doesn't Want the owners be there is a certain Feeling now you want to take this Approach all you're doing is for the Employees that are going to think about Using this against the employer good Luck to you good luck to what happens And go in the marketplace and see if That strategy is going to work out by The way again all this does the Stupidity of things like this it creates A division between the employer and the Employee as if we don't already have Enough Division let's add some more division Between employer and employees and act Like we're on the employee side keep Doing that and see what happens and you

Can only do this once by the way yeah You've that once you know if you pull This trick off and you get a little bit Of money they know you're not loyal You're probably not going to get a next Promotion at the place you just extorted The arrays from and if you left anyway You know If you really did that with a new Employer if someone came to me if I was A week let's say I was a weak-minded Kind of a low ethics uh competitor and I'm welcoming A salesperson to bring in All these you know contacts that came From the other company or something or Or information they really shouldn't Have brought in my door do I trust him No because I can set my watch means Someday he's going to do that to me for His next job so it doesn't work this way You're absolutely right Pat it doesn't Work you you get marked you pull it off Once you're still a marked person Because you respect honesty like you You'd rather have somebody walk in but Not with all this gimmick and Just be like Pat like even and even if They got emotion like Pat I need this raise Eggs For a dozen and I have a date coming Over She wants that would actually work that Would work
