8:38 am
just said. you have your own internal gps, guidance system, guidance system, the voice of god, whatever you choose to call it, and people get in trouble because you're following everybody else's. and so if you just lean into becoming more of who you are, who you're meant to be, that's why you're here. >> i think about it as an athlete and i would run track and you would get in trouble when you looked to your left and to your right. if you didn't win, if you can find glory in the victory of others -- >> yes. >> that's something -- >> i can't believe you just said that. i used to say that to my team every day. put all your energy into where you're headed, not what the other people are doing. it makes a huge difference. >> while the other shows are looking at you.
