  • we all have superpowers and if you're not using them to the utmost of your abilities to do something better for your people, your community, your country, whatever every day, and getting a little scary and maybe getting a little hate from it, you're kind of dishonoring this beautiful gift of life somehow, you know?

  • And I think I think when you know your book brave, when people saw what you did, it was I think a lot of people were like, wow, yeah, it's hard to, you know, it's funny.

  • Uh we're brave.

  • Like I have these, I have two boys and three and four years old.

  • And so I tell them a story every night and I usually have a stuffed animal there and the stuffed animal gets scared during the story and I say, what do we do when we're scared?

  • And they say brave, they say brave and I was like, what does it mean to be brave?

  • And so they know the concept, but whenever they're scared they don't want to be brave.

  • And so it's a weird thing with humans that it's hard to go into the fear, but you can learn that or be inspired by people like you, I think you can say to your Children or do anybody about being brave, because that's the question I get asked a lot, How do I become great?

  • And the thing is you will be scared, bravery is not the absence of fear, it is leaning into it and doing it anyway and persevering and it will not blow you, you know that fear is not going to disintegrate you, and usually we've all gone through so much stuff in our lives like what are they going to do if they haven't already done too?

  • So be brave and my platform um something of course outline I'm actually building for my book, my platform is 10 better, That's what it is.

  • I just want people every day including myself 10 to 10 go how could what can I do better today?

  • Or inherently Justin myself be better by 10 and that 10 can grow and grow and grow.

  • And so yeah, be better.

  • Be brave, Why not?

  • And and so I think, you know, for you, I think it's punk, I like that you're a disrupter, I respect that you're an outsider that also kind of because the finance world and and you know, it's not it's just looking at it differently.

  • It's really looking at the system differently and seeing how we can just make it work better, more streamline so we can all get to our destination faster.

  • It's like improving traffic on the freeway.

  • It's really not that complicated, but it is complicated when you're dealing with power mongers that won't move.

  • Yeah.

  • These gatekeepers, whether it's a political party or mainstream media outlet or something, they're not used to change.

  • They just resisted.

  • It's not necessarily they're complicit.

  • They just resisted because business as usual is good for everyone.

  • And so I felt that resistance, they don't want me in on the debates and stuff.

  • At the same time though.

  • I think we're doing things that now will raise the bar on all future people running from there.

  • So we're like super digitally transparent.

  • I got a digital battle bus.

  • I'm driving through every borough of London.

  • You know, we're doing digital outdoor ads and Youtube before.

  • They're like, what?

  • So yeah, it's been crazy.

  • Mhm.

we all have superpowers and if you're not using them to the utmost of your abilities to do something better for your people, your community, your country, whatever every day, and getting a little scary and maybe getting a little hate from it, you're kind of dishonoring this beautiful gift of life somehow, you know?
