Speak­er 1:

We believe and have always believed in this coun­try that man was cre­at­ed in the image of God, that he was giv­en tal­ents and respon­si­bil­i­ties and was instruct­ed to use them to make this world a bet­ter place in which to live. And you see, this is the real­ly great thing of America.


It’s time to dis­cov­er what binds us togeth­er. And find­ing it has the pow­er to trans­form our world. That’s what I believe. How about you?

All right. Hel­lo, every­body. And wel­come to Believe. Great to have you along with us today is a spe­cial day. We’re going to be talk­ing about this frus­tra­tion, this unhap­pi­ness that it seems to be in the world today, and how it might be hurt­ing us in Amer­i­ca. But we’re with a guy who’s an amaz­ing, pos­i­tive per­son. We’re with David Meltzer. And David, you have been a great his­to­ry of engage­ment of pos­i­tiv­i­ty. And your exam­ple has inspired movies. Your abil­i­ty to talk to peo­ple around the world is spec­tac­u­lar. And I know you were just with a bunch of friends [inaudi­ble 00:01:15] and the Direct Sell­ing Asso­ci­a­tion recent­ly. So tell me about that real quick [inaudi­ble 00:01:20] how that went.

David Meltzer:

Yeah. I did­n’t know you were involved with them, but I was just blessed to leave my daugh­ter’s high school grad­u­a­tion par­ty ear­ly. I heard I was blessed to leave that with all those kids to fly overnight to Boca Raton for the DSA, the Direct Sell­ing Asso­ci­a­tion’s annu­al meet­ing. And I keynote not­ed that with a talk about hap­pi­ness, about empow­er­ing oth­ers to make mon­ey, help peo­ple and have fun, and the extra­or­di­nary oppor­tu­ni­ties that direct sell­ing gives to peo­ple in order to make a lot of mon­ey and help a lot of peo­ple and have a lot of fun.

But what I real­ly enjoyed most beyond the extra­or­di­nary peo­ple like Joni Rogers-Kante and oth­ers who had invit­ed me down there was that there’s no bet­ter indus­try to illus­trate one of the biggest facades that exists today, which I call the extra mile. You see, with the hun­dreds of peo­ple that I work with in my own com­pa­ny and thou­sands around the world, they all tell me, David, Mr. Meltzer, I go the extra mile.”

And I was like, You cer­tain­ly do, just like my kids do. You go the extra mile every once in a while.” And that does­n’t work in the direct sell­ing world at all, because what hap­pens is peo­ple who go the extra mile every once in a while, they live their life in blame, shame and jus­ti­fi­ca­tion, because going the extra mile every once in a while does­n’t do it. And so they go back and say, Oh yeah, but I went the extra mile here.” And it’s like a kid com­ing home and break­ing cur­few, right? In the morn­ing when you take away their phone for break­ing cur­few, what do they jus­ti­fy? Oh, but I’m a good kid. I got straight As, dad. Don’t take my phone.”

I’m like, Whoa, whoa, you went the extra mile every once in a while to get good grades, but not every day, right?” I’m talk­ing about in order to be suc­cess­ful in DSA, in order to be suc­cess­ful in life, you need to enjoy the con­sis­tent every day, per­sis­tent, with­out quit, pur­suit of your poten­tial. You need to go the extra mile every day to live in the emp­ty mile. And here’s the good, nice thing about it, as you see this in direct sell­ing, the emp­ty mile is less com­pet­i­tive. There’s less resis­tance. There’s less fric­tion. So the peo­ple who live in the emp­ty mile by going the extra mile every day some­how end up with these huge down­streams in unbe­liev­able health, wealth, hap­pi­ness and wor­thi­ness, while every­body else is jus­ti­fy­ing with blame and shame why they’re not where they want to be, because they went to the extra mile two weeks ago.


Right, right. Well, you’re right. Going that extra mile every day is impor­tant. Talk a lit­tle bit about … and I just love the way you have the phras­es … you have this under­stand­ing, and you have this per­spec­tive. There’s a lot of peo­ple who are not in that place right now. There’s a lot of divi­sion that’s in our coun­try, that I won­der how it’s hurt­ing our coun­try. So talk a lit­tle bit about the peo­ple who aren’t there, who are blam­ing, who are jus­ti­fy­ing their posi­tion. How do we under­stand where they are so that we can help them make that transition?

David Meltzer:

First, you have to meet peo­ple where they’re at. So you need to ask them and find peo­ple to meet where they’re at that have open minds. I tell every­one that every­one has an open mind at a cer­tain time. Some peo­ple have open minds 90% of the time, some peo­ple have open minds 10% of the time. So what we want to do first is vet for the open mind to find the open hearts and open hands in order to meet peo­ple where they’re at, because most peo­ple spend the major­i­ty of their time on peo­ple that are bleed­ing them, let alone peo­ple that are not open-mind­ed. And so by find­ing out what peo­ple are doing today and then find­ing out what they like about it and what they don’t like about it, we then can explore through open-end­ed ques­tions that have an open mind, Would it help you if I did this?”

You see, if we know what we want in a day, per­son­al­ly, expe­ri­en­tial­ly, giv­ing and receiv­ing-wise, we can find out who we can help, but also who can help us. And when we do that, we cre­ate inspi­ra­tion, or in spir­it, we real­ize and we acknowl­edge, remind, remem­ber and rec­ol­lect that we are con­nect­ed to abun­dance, to infi­nite every­thing for every­one, that we don’t have to live in a zero-sum game in a world of not enough, where you’re a vic­tim or just enough, where things come for you, where you’re buy­ing things you don’t need to impress peo­ple you don’t like.

But there is actu­al­ly a world of faith where the source, the omni­scient, all-pow­er­ful, all-know­ing source, the omnipresent source, loves you more than your mom, where you’re always pro­tect­ed and pro­mot­ed with more than enough of every­thing for every­one. You don’t have to live in a zero-sum game. You can live in a val­ue-add game, but it does know good. Unless you find the open mind, the open heart and open hand by find­ing out by open-end­ed ques­tions, What are you doing today? What do you like about it? What don’t you like about it? And would it help you if” … That is the tem­plate that I’ve cre­at­ed for peo­ple to find those open minds, to meet peo­ple where they’re at, to teach them grat­i­tude, for­give­ness, account­abil­i­ty, and live inspired.


Yeah, I love it. David, when you talk about these sorts of things, when you have this incred­i­ble out­look and we rec­og­nize that there’s peo­ple … You talk about how we can con­nect with peo­ple who are in an unhap­py state, a cou­ple things come to mind. It’d be easy to say, Well, you just must have had every­thing going your way. You must have nev­er had a chal­lenge in your life. Every­thing was just per­fect for you.” It’s easy for you to say that. But you’ve had a few chal­lenges in your life. Share with our audi­ence some of the things that you’ve gone through, because life isn’t with­out chal­lenge, and it’s not with­out tak­ing risks to get to a bet­ter place.

David Meltzer:

Yeah, I have tons of pain, set­backs, fail­ures, mis­takes, voids, short­ages and obsta­cles in my life, like every­one else. I still have them. I have what every­one else has today, but I spend min­utes and moments, not days, weeks, months, and years. So I grew up with a sin­gle mom, six kids, not enough food. My mom worked two jobs, packed my din­ner in a paper bag so that we could eat in between being a sec­ond grade teacher and fill­ing up turn­stiles with greet­ing cards at con­ve­nience stores. And yet from there, I also was abused as a nine-year-old, from a rel­a­tive of mine. Then I go and I don’t have mon­ey to go to col­lege, but find a way through that. Then I end up liv­ing a life of for me, where I make mul­ti­mil­lions of dol­lars, and I end up los­ing everything.

2008 hits, I lose over a hun­dred mil­lion dol­lars and go bank­rupt. I go from 33 homes in San Diego, a ski moun­tain and a golf course to lit­er­al­ly a rent­ed house, rent­ed fur­ni­ture, one car, three daugh­ters under 10 years old, and a preg­nant wife with my son. I then rebuild that as well, with all types of chal­lenges, set­backs and fail­ures, the same as any­body else, that I had to re-engi­neer what I was doing in mul­ti­ple dif­fer­ent directions.

But I will tell you this: through dai­ly prac­tices and val­ues of grat­i­tude, for­give­ness, account­abil­i­ty and inspi­ra­tion, through the under­stand­ing that I’m already hap­py, healthy, wealthy and wor­thy, I just con­tin­ue fig­ure out what I’m doing to inter­fere with it. And I only let the inter­fer­ence last for min­utes and moments, not days, weeks, months and years. I know what I want every day, real­is­ti­cal­ly, who I can help, who can help me, how to get it done.

I know how to pri­or­i­tize it, but most impor­tant­ly, I know how to apply my why. I’m not in search of being hap­py, healthy, wealthy and wor­thy. I already know I am. I’m fig­ur­ing out what I’m doing to inter­fere with it. And I use lin­ear time, prag­mat­ic time, today, to think about and dream about an unre­al­is­tic future and past, because my yes­ter­day and tomor­row are rel­a­tive in time. Today is real­is­tic time. So I’m going to be pro­duc­tive, acces­si­ble and gra­cious with my real­is­tic time towards a tra­jec­to­ry, by empow­er­ing over a bil­lion peo­ple to be hap­py, by empow­er­ing peo­ple to make more mon­ey, help more peo­ple and have more fun. Doug, I’ve nev­er met any­one that makes a ton of mon­ey, helps a ton of peo­ple and has a ton of fun that aren’t happy.


There you go. There you go. And being hap­py, this idea of being hap­py is not stuff. This is an inside out thing. You’ve talked and I’ve seen you talk about your cen­ter, your faith, and that hav­ing a place … and you just talked about it a lit­tle bit. Maybe go just a touch deep­er. Because when we talk about believe in this pod­cast, we’re talk­ing about encour­ag­ing peo­ple to find their cen­ter. What do they real­ly believe? And then from there, they could move for­ward. So help us under­stand how you’ve gone through that, and your center.

David Meltzer:

Well, I thought I was in con­trol of every­thing. I lived, like most peo­ple, as a tube, food in, food out, push­ing a Boul­der to the top of the hill, just to have it roll down to the bot­tom the next day. I call it igno­rant arro­gance, where we know we don’t know what we don’t know, but we’re pre­tend­ing like we do. I then shift­ed to igno­rant humil­i­ty, which allows me to tell peo­ple, Look, I don’t know what I don’t know, but I’m going to do my best, learn lessons and have fun.” I’m going to live my life with ser­vice and with val­ue by doing so. But in order to do so, I have to have faith. No longer am I going in search of any­thing of what’s com­ing to me. All I’m focused in on is what I’m becom­ing, because I give mean­ing to every­thing I see.

And if I give mean­ing to every­thing I see, I can’t find out­side of me what I can’t find inside of me. And so I’m uti­liz­ing that enjoy­ment of the con­sis­tent, per­sis­tent pur­suit of my poten­tial, the five dai­ly prac­tices … which by the way, for your audi­ence, every­one, my book on dai­ly prac­tices for free for your audi­ence, email me, david@​dmeltzer.​com. I’m more than hap­py to send it to every­one, david@​dmeltzer.​com, because it ends up in being some­thing I did­n’t have when I lived in the world of just enough, buy­ing things I did­n’t need to impress peo­ple I did­n’t like, think­ing I was in con­trol. I am not in con­trol of any­thing out­side of me. I am only in con­trol of my mind­set, my heart­set and my handset.

And so in order to acknowl­edge that, I believe that there’s some­thing big­ger than me, an omni­scient, all pow­er­ful, all-know­ing, omnipresent source that loves me more than my mom loves me. And the anal­o­gy that changed my life was I remem­ber when I was three years old. Now, my mom is a con­sum­mate sec­ond grade teacher. She’s a Sun­day school teacher. She has giv­en her life to her six chil­dren, all who went to the Ivy Leagues, grad­u­at­ed sum­ma cum laude, and lived by the line, Doc­tor, lawyer or fail­ure.” My mom is an incred­i­ble mom, but she nev­er yelled at us. She nev­er hit us. But when I was three years old, I went to reach a hot stove. My mom slapped the crap out of my hand and screamed at me, No.” I start­ed to cry.

I’m like, Mom, why are you yelling at me? What did I do? Why’d you hit me?” I could­n’t believe it. I’m like, Why are you pun­ish­ing me?” I’m three years old. She imme­di­ate­ly hugged me.

And she’s like, Hon­ey, I’m not at all pun­ish­ing you. I’m pro­tect­ing you from what you don’t know. I’m pro­tect­ing you. I’m pro­mot­ing you to a safer, a bet­ter place.”

Well, I some­how con­nect­ed that to my whole life, say­ing, How could going bank­rupt, liv­ing in a rent­ed house with rent­ed fur­ni­ture and one car, how could that be a pro­mo­tion and a pro­tec­tion?” Only if I had faith that there’s some­thing that knew every­thing that was look­ing and lov­ing me more than my mom loved me, because she’s igno­rant and hum­ble like me. She does­n’t know what she … My mom actu­al­ly told me the inter­net was a fad, not to take my job in the inter­net, which paid me over a mil­lion dol­lars in nine months and let me buy her the house and the car that I dreamed about buy­ing her.

I was pro­tect­ed and pro­mot­ed when they did­n’t let me into the right law school. I was pro­tect­ed and pro­mot­ed when I took job in the inter­net, not as a real lawyer. I was pro­tect­ed and pro­mot­ed when my wife threat­ened to leave me because I was on the wrong path. I was threat­ened and pro­mot­ed when my dad sent me a jack­et with no pock­ets and told me I was just like him. And I told him, I’m noth­ing like you. You’re a liar, a cheater, a manip­u­la­tor. I hate you,” to find out I was my father and I hat­ed myself.

We can find the light, the love and the lessons in every­thing, and rec­on­cile time, whether it’s worth to find it at that day, time and moment, by uti­liz­ing the open-end­ed ques­tion guide, by find­ing open minds, open hearts and open hands. But most impor­tant­ly, real­iz­ing we are in con­trol of our mind­set, our heart­set, and our hand­set, con­nect­ed to and through an omni­scient, all-pow­er­ful, all-know­ing, omnipresent source that loves us more than your mom loves you, or even more than my mom loves me.


Wow. Wow. That’s a pow­er­ful state­ment, and to put it in that con­text of love and pro­tec­tion so you can move for­ward. So your les­son is that we can learn. You talk about grat­i­tude a lot. And when you talk about the dif­fi­cult expe­ri­ences that you’ve gone through, you’ve shown how you have used those to move your­self for­ward. Talk a lit­tle bit about the inside feel­ing of how you feel about those, that sense of grat­i­tude that you speak about. I’ve seen you speak about that. Help us under­stand that and how we can apply that in our lives and build on a belief sys­tem, like you’ve been talk­ing about.

David Meltzer:

I love the word par­tic­i­pa­tion. I look at what peo­ple think about me, say about me. And I say to myself, What did I do to par­tic­i­pate in their per­cep­tion of me, in their activ­i­ty? What did I do to par­tic­i­pate, and what am I sup­posed to learn through that to find the light, the love and the lessons in every­thing?” But the one thing that most peo­ple don’t talk about beyond par­tic­i­pa­tion in grat­i­tude, the coher­ence of remem­ber­ing to be thank­ful and actu­al­ly being thank­ful … which believe it or not is more dif­fi­cult than any­thing else. It takes 0.1 sec­onds, it is free, but by tonight, most peo­ple will for­get to say thank you. And by tomor­row, most of us will for­get to say thank you. And with­in three days, almost all of us will for­get to say thank you. That’s how hard it is to par­tic­i­pate in gratitude.

But beyond par­tic­i­pa­tion, the rec­on­cil­i­a­tion of time with­in the con­text of grat­i­tude … This is why I talk about real­is­tic, lin­ear time, to know our dai­ly prac­tices today, to be unre­al­is­tic and rel­a­tive of yes­ter­day and the future. The rea­son it’s so impor­tant is that there is light, love and lessons in every­thing. Most peo­ple spend the major­i­ty of their time with peo­ple, things and events that bleed them; jobs they don’t like, rela­tion­ships that bleed us, events, sit­u­a­tions that bleed us, instead of rec­on­cil­ing time and say­ing to our­selves, Hey, I know there’s light, love and lessons in Doug, but is it worth my time today, today?”

And if it is, then we can go ahead and par­tic­i­pate in the rela­tion­ship, the sit­u­a­tion, the book, the idea, what­ev­er it may be, or the per­cep­tion of some­one else of us. Peo­ple waste so much time with oth­er peo­ple’s per­cep­tions instead of their own. They’re so wor­ried about what oth­er peo­ple think, say, do and want for them. It’s ter­ri­ble. Trust me. You should only be con­cerned of your par­tic­i­pa­tion in that oth­er per­son­’s per­cep­tion of you.

I have three teenage daugh­ters. And if I could take back all the time, emo­tion, val­ue and friend­ships that they’ve wor­ried about because of what oth­er peo­ple have said, done, or thought, and I’ll say to them, How are you wor­ried about what they think of you when you don’t even know or wor­ry about what you think of you?” Why not just ask your­self, What am I doing to par­tic­i­pate in what those peo­ple think of me, and what am I sup­posed to learn from it?” Don’t wor­ry about the judge­ments and con­di­tions and attacks that you feel or think or per­ceive. I can’t tell you how much time, emo­tion, val­ue and rela­tion­ships I’ve wast­ed on thoughts about what oth­er peo­ple think about me that were so far off, that were so far off, that I just wast­ed my time, emo­tion, val­ue and rela­tion­ship over wor­ry­ing or com­plain­ing about some­body else’s per­cep­tion of me, when all I had to do is ask, What am I doing to par­tic­i­pate in the per­cep­tion, and what am I sup­posed to learn from it?”

There’s light, love and lessons in every­one. Grat­i­tude is the abil­i­ty to not only find the light, the love and the lessons, but to rec­on­cile time. Is it worth it? Are they bleed­ing me or feed­ing me? And let’s go ahead and find the light, the love and lessons in the peo­ple that are feed­ing us and feed that. Sur­round your­self with the right peo­ple and the right ideas. It’s much eas­i­er to have coher­ence of grat­i­tude to uti­lize your 0.1 sec­onds that’s free, in its most advan­ta­geous manner.


Yeah, yeah. I love all the per­spec­tives that you bring about how we par­tic­i­pate, what we do. Let’s go back a lit­tle bit and talk, because we’ve talked before about this idea, and you talked about the direct sell­ing, this idea of the Amer­i­can dream and this idea of over­com­ing these things. And if we talk about the chal­lenge with unhap­pi­ness and that it’s hurt­ing Amer­i­ca, if we were to get to the hap­pi­ness part, if we were to put these prac­tices into our dai­ly lives, as you talk about, what do you see we could change in our com­mu­ni­ty, in our state, in our country?

David Meltzer:

Yeah. Well, first, clear­ing the inter­fer­ence not only between us and what we’re con­nect­ed to and through, but clear­ing the inter­fer­ence between us and every­one else, right? When we have less inter­fer­ence or less fric­tion in the dis­tri­b­u­tion of inspi­ra­tion, to be tru­ly con­nect­ed in a world of more than enough, then abun­dance can flow freely. Let me show you how it works. So if we can, num­ber one, appre­ci­ate our dif­fer­ences and our sim­i­lar­i­ties … not just the sim­i­lar­i­ties, right? I get when peo­ple, Oh, we’re all human.” Okay, great. We can appre­ci­ate that we all have bod­ies and minds and we’re all human, but why not appre­ci­ate the dif­fer­ences, right, uti­liz­ing the weak­ness­es to move to a place where they’re strengths, and max­i­miz­ing the strengths of one anoth­er? Because as a whole, if we appre­ci­ate, if we live in a val­ue-add world, not a zero-sum world, when we appre­ci­ate, we expand, which is what the uni­verse is doing, expand­ing and grow­ing and accelerating.

Now, in that same con­text of how we can unite with one anoth­er, clear the inter­fer­ence that we per­ceive exists between one anoth­er, the dif­fer­ences that are not appre­ci­at­ed, once we appre­ci­ate the dif­fer­ences, we can acknowl­edge and rec­og­nize the dif­fer­ences by giv­ing it away, by allow­ing it to be lost, stolen or manip­u­lat­ed with no judg­ment or con­di­tions. Because the only way we can acknowl­edge and rec­og­nize the con­nec­tiv­i­ty, the inspi­ra­tion between us, the sim­i­lar­i­ties and the dif­fer­ences that are appre­ci­at­ed, is to give it away, to acknowl­edge it and rec­og­nize it.

Now, most peo­ple stop there. What I try to encour­age peo­ple to do is to ask, to be more inter­est­ed than inter­est­ing, to not live in a zero-sum game, but to live in full faith that there’s more than enough of every­thing for every­one. So not only do I want every­one to appre­ci­ate the sim­i­lar­i­ties and dif­fer­ences, to rec­og­nize and acknowl­edge them by giv­ing them away, but I want you to add val­ue by ask­ing for help. By uti­liz­ing the open-end­ed ques­tion tem­plate, by sim­ply ask­ing peo­ple and find­ing the open minds, open hearts and open hands, What are you doing today? What do you like about it? What don’t you like about it? Would it help you if I did this? Would it help you if I could do this? Would it help you if I intro­duced you to this? Would it help you if” … Then you could cir­cle back to com­plete it by say­ing, Do you know any­one that can help me?”

See, what I want to cre­ate is a com­mu­ni­ty of not only pow­er spon­sors, peo­ple that can help one anoth­er, but even fur­ther­more, espe­cial­ly with social media, a com­mu­ni­ty of spon­sors, peo­ple who know peo­ple that can help us. Nev­er before … you and I are a lit­tle bit longer in the tooth, Doug. We remem­ber a day where we only had access to our com­mu­ni­ties, to a news­pa­per arti­cle, at best a TV show.


Yeah, right. Right.

David Meltzer:

Not today. We have access to 7.6 bil­lion peo­ple. Our fre­quen­cy is our neigh­bor­hood. Let’s ele­vate the aware­ness. Let’s ele­vate oth­ers to ele­vate our­selves by ask­ing, Do you know any­one that can help me?” If you ask for help, which is just as impor­tant as giv­ing it, I think it’s crit­i­cal to unite through not only giv­ing, but receiv­ing, by ask­ing for help through appre­ci­a­tion, acknowl­edge­ment and hope.


Beau­ti­ful. And you talk, this con­nects … And we’ll wrap here, because I know we’ve got a short peri­od of time to chat. But you talk about being open and build­ing rela­tion­ships and ask­ing that ques­tion and lis­ten­ing to peo­ple. And you talk about this idea of a bil­lion peo­ple being hap­py, but to empow­er a bil­lion peo­ple … because you can’t make some­body hap­py. Help us under­stand how we can be part of empow­er­ing some­body with us, some­body that we know, so that they can find that path to happiness.

David Meltzer:

I love that. Well, first of all, it’s over a bil­lion peo­ple. I always tell peo­ple the only thing that you want to kill in your life­time is your lim­i­ta­tions. [inaudi­ble 00:23:17]-


There you go. I like it. Okay, over a bil­lion peo­ple. I’m with you there.

David Meltzer:

Over a bil­lion peo­ple. And yes, the only way that I can get there is by empow­er­ing oth­ers to empow­er oth­ers. So I’m look­ing for a thou­sand peo­ple like you, Doug, that I know in your life­time will empow­er a thou­sand peo­ple to empow­er a thou­sand peo­ple. A thou­sand times a thou­sand’s a mil­lion. A mil­lion times a thou­sand’s a bil­lion. Now, how do we do it? Well, let’s not have peo­ple lis­ten to us. What I want peo­ple to do is to be more inter­est­ed than inter­est­ing. I want peo­ple to learn what peo­ple are lis­ten­ing for. I want peo­ple to find the open minds, open hearts and open hands and find out what they’re lis­ten­ing for, and how can we add val­ue to what they’re lis­ten­ing for, and how can they add val­ue to what we’re lis­ten­ing for?

And when we are in this abun­dant faith-based per­spec­tive of more than enough of every­thing for every­one, with an omni­scient, all-pow­er­ful, all-know­ing, omnipresent source that loves us more than our mom, we can empow­er oth­er peo­ple with the heart­set and the hand­set to not only cre­ate abun­dance for them­selves and live in an infi­nite world, but empow­er oth­ers to do the same. We could share our heart­set, the way we feel, and we could share our hand­set, the pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, acces­si­bil­i­ty and grat­i­tude, by shar­ing our mind­set, heart­set and hand­set, by find­ing open minds, open hearts and open hands to uti­lize the mind­set, hand­set and heartset.

It’s amaz­ing how much more pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, acces­si­bil­i­ty and grat­i­tude there’ll be in the world. And the more pro­duc­tive the world is, right, the more val­ue the world is pro­vid­ing, the more acces­si­ble the world is. When we’re more acces­si­ble, we are able to access more, too. So we bring a duplica­tive val­ue to acces­si­bil­i­ty of not only being acces­si­ble of oth­ers, but receiv­ing. And then that all will rec­on­cile into grat­i­tude by uti­liz­ing man­made, con­struc­tive time to find out and pri­or­i­tize, is it worth it to find the light, the love and the lessons in those peo­ple and sit­u­a­tions that feed us so we can feed those, max­i­miz­ing our love and truth, max­i­miz­ing our poten­tial, allow­ing us to enjoy, to be hap­py with the con­sis­tent, every day, per­sis­tent with­out quit, pur­suit of our own potential?

Every­one born and appre­ci­at­ing the gifts that we’ve been giv­en, not what oth­er peo­ple [inaudi­ble 00:25:36] for us, not what’s miss­ing, not what we have, but what we want, our poten­tial. And all of this will aggre­gate and accu­mu­late and coor­di­nate and col­lab­o­rate togeth­er to cre­ate a greater expec­ta­tion, greater per­cep­tion of the par­tic­i­pa­tion in the jour­ney that we’re all on togeth­er as a col­lec­tive con­scious­ness, remind­ing, remem­ber­ing and recollecting.

What is it? What do you think? Those sure sound like words of togeth­er­ness. So let’s all remind, remem­ber and rec­ol­lect togeth­er. Let’s empow­er one anoth­er to empow­er oth­ers to be more inter­est­ing, to be kind, not only kind, but kind to our future selves by doing good deeds. My name, David, means beloved. My last name, Meltzer, means ser­vant. Let us all be David Meltzers. Let us all be beloved ser­vants to one anoth­er by ask­ing how we could be of ser­vice and val­ue and ask­ing for help. I promise you, you will make a lot of mon­ey, help a lot of peo­ple and have a lot of fun, and most impor­tant­ly, be happy,


Be hap­py. Well, there you go, my friend, David Meltzer, what a beloved ser­vant, and words of wis­dom. And I think that being inter­est­ed in some­body else and putting that rela­tion­ship as a pri­or­i­ty out there, help­ing us be hap­py. And if we are empow­er­ing oth­ers to find that source of hap­pi­ness them­selves, we can cre­ate uni­ty and make our com­mu­ni­ties a bet­ter place. David, thank you so much for tak­ing your time with us. We appre­ci­ate it. God bless you. Take care, and we’ll look for­ward to see­ing you soon.

David Meltzer:
