    @David agree this is such a good point. If you think that you should treat others how you want to be treated it seems so obvious. @Sam ❤️

    @Gillian135 I have to constantly remind myself of this with my kids and my spouse. It’s ridiculous how easy it is—especially with smarphones, headphones, tv, etc—to neglect to be fully present for others. It’s a work in progress…

  • 17:35 “Your energy is your example [to others].” That is to say that your energy may leave a stronger impression on others than your actual message.

    Yea he makes such a good point here. Energy is infectious and taking ownership of your own energy is such an important thing we can do. I like that he leads by example here with his energy 🔥

    Nice episode Sam. The story about his daughters and the telephone was great. Brian is one of those interviews where you just kind of step back and let him monologue. That said, you did a great job of letting him do his thing.

  • 10:00 epic example about how where you focus your attention affects what you get sucked into. Great reminder to focus on the positive things you want rather than the negative things you want to avoid
