Today is episode 69 of a daily dose of greatness quest. And you know what they say about 69, it’s a pretty sexy position. So, today we’re going to talk about what you can learn from the 69 position. It’s going to be a sexy episode.
(INTRO – AUDIO)
Hey, welcome back. And today, we’re gonna talk about the 69 position. I don’t know about you, but for a long time, I have not been participating in the 69. I love it. We talked about it. It’s a jokey type of thing that people typically snicker when I was a teenager, which I don’t feel much older than now. I used to, you know, it’s one of those funny things we could talk about. And also something that you look forward to doing if you’ve never done it before. And I have done it. I’m sure you have done it. Or and if not, for God’s sake, for the love of all that is holy, you got to find a willing participant and partake in some 69.
In fact, that’s my challenge for you today. If you haven’t done it yet, or if you haven’t done it lately, my challenge for you is to try it out. I’m going to take up, I’m going to take my own advice on this one. And I do not mean figuratively, I mean, literally find a willing partner and engage in some 69 and see what you learn.
Because there is a back and forth, give and take, give and receive. So my power question for you today. So think about what are you, are you a better giver or are you a better receiver? Because I have found that one of my bigger challenges has been to try to become a better receiver. And I want to even train that in my kids.
So, my daughter and I, my wife and my little son just went to New York. And we did this amazing trip. And we took my daughter to go see her girlfriends that she used to go to school with and that was her present. And then we took her to go see Hamilton, which is a pretty expensive musical. And she got all kinds of gifts. And we found that she wasn’t terribly grateful. That’s not exactly accurate, I’m sure she is grateful. But she doesn’t say thank you that much.
Now, she certainly doesn’t wrap up the present we give to her. Because we’ve trained her in that. But I don’t know that as humans, we did the gratitude and being a really good receiver is something that we’re all just natural at. And so I would challenge you to, maybe you want to become a better receiver. Because the more gratitude that you have, the more blessings and abundance you’ll receive. So say that again. So you have it for the quote of the day “Being grateful attracts blessings and abundance.” And so, are you being grateful when you receive gifts in life? Now, maybe that’s a present that you receive from a friend or in this case, a family member when we gave it to my daughter. But we also have these gifts in life like your health, your ears, your eyesight. One of the things that I try to focus on every day is my job.
And I just take a deep breath and look around me and I stay. And I asked the question about what am I grateful for. And I look up in the sky and right now when I’m doing that, I look up and I see a cloudy day. In fact, I’ll probably get caught in the rain while I’m recording this podcast. And I’m grateful for, I’m grateful for the grass that I see around me. I’m grateful for the fact that I, you know, I will sometimes focus on my body, the fact that I’m walking around. Like, I don’t know, if you ever met a bummed knee man. You’re grateful for walking, I’m grateful for running. I’m grateful for what I can see. And I don’t know that we do this often enough. And when it comes to our kids, are you training your kids to be grateful and to be appreciative and to become really good receivers?
Because I saw this happen once with Tony Robbins. So check this out. I was doing a lot of volunteering with Tony Robbins when I first went to my first event. For the next couple of years, I rarely missed an event that Tony put on whether it was paid and I paid to go see him around the country around the world sometimes or I just went to volunteer. And then I was also interacting with a lot of his trainers and coaches and different people that were in the organization because I bought all the Tony stuff. I wanted to get more insight into myself and what I wanted. And I wanted help. So, what I did was, I practice what I preach. In this case, I just hired somebody. And then I wanted to consume all their information.
So, I went to the events. And what I saw, there were some trainers in the environment. One in particular on this one day of this one event that everybody loved. I’m not going to name his name right now. But everybody loved this guy. And they kept complimenting. They’re like, “Oh my God. Dude, you’re changing my life. Thank you so much.” And they were so grateful. And not wanting to receive the praise and wanting to give credit to the people who were taking action, the guy was like not receiving the compliment. And I’m right, I’m getting caught in the rain right now. So my prediction came true.
So to wrap this up, my buddy was just an awful receiver. People were begging him, a whole room full of people were complimenting. “Hey, dude. Thank you. I appreciate you. Thank you.” And he was deflecting, deflecting, deflecting. And what I noticed was how everybody who’s giving him compliments, everybody who was trying to say, to be appreciative and they were disappointed. They were crestfallen because they had wrapped up the best present they could possibly give to this guy and he wouldn’t receive it. Instead all he did was kept deflecting it and reflecting it.
Now what happened on the same day is, that Tony Robbins was in front of thousands of people. And the events and all of the crew members were up on stage with Tony. There’s a couple hundred of them. And Tony is leaving the stage walking through a literally a sea of people that are all on stage, couldn’t get through unless you bumped into, like it was just like very, very tight quarters. And security is right there to make sure nobody like messes with Tony.
But what I saw Tony do is he smiled at people. He looked them in the eyes and he shook their hands. And he just walked through the sea of people. And what he did is he received their gratitude. Sometimes people had a moment to talk to him and they said, “Hey, thank you.” Sometimes they know that they might have said a longer sentence or two. Sometimes they just shook his hand. And what I saw Tony do was take a moment to squeeze their hands, look into their eyes. And if he couldn’t reach them, he still would pick someone, look at them and receive their thanks and gratitude.
And all he would do is smile. That took him a second, maybe took five seconds. But in five seconds, he gave them a phenomenal gift. And what I saw in the ripple effect that was in the room of the people that he had, that had just complimented Tony and said thank you. These people were elated and overjoyed because Tony had acknowledged them and received their appreciation.
So, my question for you today again is: Are you a better giver? Are you a better receiver? What I found is most people are that is giving, it’s easy, makes us feel good. But there’s two parts of the equation when you’re in the 69 position. There’s the one that’s the receiver. And it’s fun, man. Come on, get home. I want it. Now hit it. Get it deeper. You know, you’re better. Hey, no teeth, right? But then there’s the giving part. Are you more focused on the giving or the receiving? I don’t know which is better. I like a little bit of both. How about you?
But my challenge for you today is go get yourself some 69. Seriously, that’s your job is to go ahead and find a willing partner and then engage in some literally 69. And if you want, extend this into your business, into your life and into your kids’ lives.
What my wife and I realized is that my daughter is not this ungrateful little spoiled brat. Although she’s pretty spoiled because we give all kinds of cool stuff. But we have not trained her about how to be properly appreciative and grateful when we went on this trip. And so, we’re going to do that. It’s not her fault. She’s a sweetheart and she was really appreciative. She actually feels a little guilty about how much stuff we’ve been giving her. And she knows how expensive it was to take trips like this. So, we just haven’t shown her how to show the appropriate appreciation. Because when you are grateful and you share that with the universe, you will receive more blessings and gratitude.
That’s all I have for you today. Or so blessings and abundance, right? Like attracts like. And if you’re fucking bitching all the time and complaining all the time, and your nose is caught on someone’s asshole because you’re giving them a 69, you think you’re this shit. Stinks. I get it. I get it. But if you’re gonna bitch and complain, you’ll probably get more bitching and complaining all your life. And if you’re going to be grateful and find, I mean, you practice the skill of becoming a better receiver you can give a massive gift to others.
That’s a big gift for you today on a daily dose of greatness quest. I can’t wait to see you tomorrow. What I’m going to share with you, what do you think? Time management principal like a little hack or about how to hack your success. I haven’t decided which is going to be the next show yet.
