  • - So, please give your

  • biggest warmest HTC welcome

  • to my mentor, Mr.Dan Pena

  • [Crowd Cheering]

  • - Thank you.

  • Thank you, thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you

  • It's a, you can't imagine how, how proud I am of Dan.

  • We were just talking before I came out on stage.

  • It was before his 22nd birthday that we met

  • and he came down to have breakfast with me.

  • What he didn't add, or alluded to, he's dead broke.

  • He didn't have enough money to buy a plane ticket

  • but he got there somehow.

  • And we spent a few hours together

  • that fateful a summer day of 2003.

  • And now look at him.

  • He does have a following of millions and indirectly.

  • That means I had something to do with it.

  • So I'm very pleased to be here

  • and we're going to go through some history.

  • I am a salesman that started out door to door,

  • door to door, and I took those sales skills

  • and I improved them years after year after year

  • decade after decade until I was selling countries.

  • So I didn't realize I was a high ticket, closer, you know

  • 40 years ago.

  • But today is a special day.

  • [audience Cheering]

  • Today is a special day for September the sixth

  • 1,969 was the day I was discharged

  • from the military 50 years ago, 50 years ago.

  • So, but when you've lived, as long as I have

  • and I just turned 74 in fact, last night at dinner

  • Dan and I were discussing I'm twice as old as he is.

  • It's hard to fucking believe

  • but the he's a little younger than our oldest son.

  • And he's a little older than our youngest son

  • but he has continued to make me proud.

  • But today in the time that I have with you

  • success leaves clues.

  • some of the clues you don't want to accept.

  • I E Steve jobs was a miserable asshole.

  • Warren buffet is alive, but a cantankerous old man

  • Henry Ford the first, was a miserable asshole.

  • and I can go on and on and on and on.

  • If they weren't neurotic, they were psychotic.

  • And sometimes they were both

  • but they were all mostly miserable human beings.

  • Now all my life, I have never given a birthday card

  • sent flowers, bought candies,

  • the kinds of thing that you've done all your life.

  • And where has it gotten me?

  • Millions love me.

  • And I have more money than this room

  • put together times a thousand.

  • Success leaves clues.

  • So when I point to various traits that are super

  • high performance people that I've had the pleasure

  • of working with, knowing myself included, just think about

  • do you fit that bill?

  • Do you have that trait?

  • One of the things that Dan asked me,

  • which was part of my talk, as you know

  • I give talks to universities for free

  • about six or seven years ago.

  • I decided to give two thirds of my time pro bono, meaning

  • for free.

  • Okay.

  • And thank you.

  • And I do that because if I can reach the kids

  • when they're youngest

  • and that doesn't mean you have to go to university,

  • I didn't need it, flunked out of university three times

  • been arrested and jail five times

  • done a lot of things I'm not proud of,

  • but the bottom line is

  • I understood success, leaves clues more than most.

  • And so I patterned, I modeled, I copied

  • I mimic the super high-performance people that I've had

  • the privilege of being around.

  • In the beginning, it was the military.

  • And when I got out, I was naturally gravitated.

  • Now this is Dan, 16 years ago.

  • It's not much of an exaggeration.

  • He did have two shoes though when he met me,

  • this is him and now look at him.

  • It's quite remarkable.

  • And I had the pleasure of mentoring, coaching, teaching.

  • A lot of high-performance people.

  • Dan is one of the most high-performance individuals

  • I've had the privilege of working with.

  • He, continued there he is in his mid twenties

  • where there's, you can't really see the pimples

  • on his face there, but he had them.

  • And then that's when he got a little older

  • and there he is more recently on the right,

  • my right, your left.

  • And but one of the things that he listened

  • to me more than most is how to stay focused

  • follow one course until successful.

  • Most of the room would be infinitely more successful.

  • If they got became more laser beam focused

  • because being a six-figure hitter

  • isn't a big fucking hitter!

  • And the real world is not even a hitter.

  • It's no money.

  • And I'm here to tell you a way that you can be

  • a seven figure, eight figure hitter,

  • and like myself a nine figure hitter.

  • Cause good things come to those who

  • go out and fucking earn it.

  • My mother was a prayer.

  • She thought prayer would solve all her problems.

  • Every time I got arrested, she pray some more.

  • She say a rosary

  • a few novenas, our father didn't help him.

  • I was rebelling against something else.

  • I was rebelling against a extremely stern father

  • and he was an authority authority figure.

  • I didn't want, I did need, but I didn't want for sure

  • as for some of the young men in the audience will attest to.

  • But the reason that I'm here, it's the

  • I didn't know that males, weren't all alpha males.

  • All my dad's mates, chums,

  • buddies, friends from the second world war

  • and the Korean war were fucking tough as nails.

  • Hence I come up with the word, the phrase snowflakes.

  • Because the current generation, the last generation

  • and a half, melt under pressure.

  • I read in the wall street journal a few days ago,

  • 14% of the people surveyed,

  • admit and crying at work at least once a week, crying

  • some cry every day.

  • 87% of the people on the planet.

  • according to Gallup, Gallup poll are unhappy,

  • and living quiet lives of desperation.

  • Now money's not the only thing in life

  • but you only God thing, anybody counts.

  • Okay. So I'm going to tell you,

  • show you how You can follow in Dan's footsteps

  • and how he is following in my footsteps.

  • A few weeks ago when he sent me these tweets

  • I think they are about when he would interview me

  • at his little lovely home and how he bought the book

  • which he's already alluded to and how he came to the castle.

  • And I went through the seminar.

  • And in those days, the days that Dan came through

  • there was no mentor program

  • and I'm not here to sell the Castle seminar,

  • Although a number of the high ticket kids have come

  • to the castle, but we're sold out this year.

  • We have a waiting list for another year and a half

  • and I'm not sure I'm going to give seminars

  • Castle seminars next year.

  • And I'm waiting on a number of things.

  • And I'm a full disclosure guy.

  • Number one, I'm working

  • on three documentaries, two movies, two books.

  • And if called, I will serve

  • in the next Trump administration.

  • Therefore I can't have seminars with you guys

  • for two or three years out in advance and full disclosure.

  • I knew president Trump in another life.

  • I haven't talked to him in many, many years

  • but I knew him when we both shared the same lawyers

  • that we did back in the

  • late seventies, early eighties

  • all the way up until the early nineties.

  • Dan's model is his name recognition

  • Dan's model is ,

  • all the people he's trained over the years

  • both in person and online.

  • But real generational wealth,

  • hundreds of millions and billions is made not

  • with one transaction, but a series of transactions.

  • And that's buying and selling companies.

  • I'm here to show you that the same

  • Dan that's pictured there

  • is the same kind of kid

  • that did the largest deal in recorded history.

  • One of my mentees 500 billion with a B

  • NEOM, the city of the future of the 22nd century

  • Klaus Kleinfeld who came to me

  • even before Dan in 1997.

  • So I have from teenage multimillionaires, like Josh Kim

  • who I'm going to get around to in a minute

  • who flies around in his own goddamn jet, as a teenager.

  • And what were you doing young man, as a teenager?

  • Other than jerking off in front of your computer,

  • not goddamn thing.

  • Not a goddamn thing,

  • to the largest deal in recorded history.

  • Now, a lot of people say I'm A Neanderthal.

  • Well, I do have an extra 13th rib

  • which is a throwback to Neanderthal.

  • My dad had a 13th rib.

  • My grandfather had a 13th rib.

  • So there is some truth, but a better story.

  • And one that I liked better

  • is I was born after they bombed Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

  • 74 years ago, first bomb was dropped on the sixth.

  • The second bomb was dropped on the 9th of August.

  • And I was born on the 10th of August.

  • There's a whole theory.

  • That's not popular anymore.

  • For those of you that have seen the movie Godzilla.

  • Godzilla came up because they were doing atomic testing

  • and then a little lizard turned

  • into a big ugly animal where there was a theory back

  • in the late forties and early fifties

  • that it changed the DNA of the planet

  • for fucking ever!

  • those two atomic bombs, forever!

  • And I was born right at the cusp of those atomic explosions.

  • So for those of you who don't want to go back

  • and study history in Google fuck it.

  • I am a product of those bombs.

  • And the 13th extra rib I have,

  • which is a throwback to Neanderthal,

  • it's because of those two bombs.

  • I am different, there's no question about it.

  • I read the website for this event

  • not once as they say in Texas,

  • not twice, but three fucking times.

  • Some of the questions you people asked.

  • How to get here?

  • I don't have a visa or a passport

  • and my Dick is only one inch long.

  • Can I still come?

  • Okay, my wife doesn't want me to go

  • to Vancouver because it's sex drugs and rock and roll.

  • I couldn't believe that shit.

  • I mean where were you people born?

  • And Dan told me last night at dinner.

  • He says, Dan, those are only some of the questions,

  • we got worst questions that they ask us.

  • My generation would be embarrassed

  • to ask those questions.

  • My generation, they're gonna to go to a deal like this.

  • I'm young, single, and I'm going to drink

  • and fuck my brains out.

  • That's it.

  • Why else would I come to this goddamn thing?

  • But now you worry about this and you worry about

  • you have a whole different set

  • of circumstances that you're concerned about

  • and none of them make you a fucking dime.
