[00:00] Welcome to funnel hacker radio podcast, where we go behind the scenes and uncover the tactics and strategies top entrepreneurs are using to make more sales, dominate their markets, and how you can get those same results. Here's your host, Dave Woodward.
[00:17] A funnel hackers will welcome back. This is a warning in advance. This is going to be a ramp, uh, dealing with some idiots in life that I am so tired of and the people I'm most frustrated with right now are the critics. Those people who sit on the sidelines who tell other people they can't do it, who have no other solution, but to be able to tear other people down. The people who sit there and point the finger scorn and others and tear them apart basically saying, oh, this won't work and that won't work and you'll never make it. Those are the people I cannot handle. And most importantly, if you are one of those people, I doubt you are, you wouldn't be listening to my podcast. But if you are and you're a critic who's sitting on the sidelines telling others they can't make it, by all means.
[00:59] You shouldn't be listening to this and you should go find something else to do because I cannot handle nor tolerate the critic who sits there and tears other people down who hasn't been in the fight, who hasn't understood the pain, who hasn't gone through the journey, who sits there, and the only way, the only satisfaction they get out of life is by tearing other people down or they decided they're going to go ahead and sue somebody because it didn't work exactly the way they want. It has to be someone else's fault and not willing to take credit for for their own mishaps in life. There is a quote I am I love more than anything else and from Theodore Roosevelt says, it's not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
[01:43] The credit belongs to the man who was actually in the arena whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood. Who strives valiantly. Who Errs, who comes short again and again because there's not an effort without error and shortcoming, but who does actually strive to do the deeds? Who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause? Who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. So if you haven't been in the fight and you don't understand what life's like, you don't have an opinion and your opinion does not matter. And if summit for those of you guys who are listening and you're being impacted by the feelings and opinions and critics, just turn it off.
[02:31] Don't. Whatever you do, do not let them get in your head. Those people haven't been in the fight who haven't done what's there. They do not deserve the opportunity to even have their words. Grace your ears. I am so tired and so frustrated with people who sit on the sidelines and tear other people down who don't give any other solution who don't provide any other value. I cannot. I've dealt with this so in different times in my life and right now is one of those little tiny pieces. It hardly ever impacts me. Every once in a while that little element comes up and the little thorn where it's like, I've been scratching at this thing and I'm just either have to cut off the limb or take it out so this one's being taken out. So for those of you who are trying to basically a tear others down to make yourself better, shame on you, and if you're being impacted by those people who don't have a better all option or a better way for you to achieve your goals and your dreams, please, please do me a favor.
[03:33] Do not let them get into your head. Do not let them even impact you. In the very, very least, their opinions mean nothing. They absolutely have no value. They have no merit. They have no credit. They've done nothing at all. They can't understand where you're at. They can't understand your dreams, your goals, your passions, your vision, where you're going, the people you want to serve, the lives you want to touch. Do not whatever you do, do not let them impact you. Again, it is not the critic who counts. That's the person who has done nothing. Do not let them get in your way. Do not let them impact you. Please do not let them impact you. Uh, I know at times you, there have been times where I literally have to physically remove myself from the person just to make sure that their caustic cancer driven ideas don't impact me.
[04:20] And so if you literally have to physically remove yourself from it, even if it's a family member, please do it. It is a cancer that it just, it eats up everything that's healthy, strong, good and right in life. So understand that if you're in the good, if you're doing the fight and you're doing what you know you're supposed to be doing, keep doing it. Don't let the critic get in the way of you achieving your goals. I hope you have an amazing day and I'm sorry for the rant. I just, I've met the boy. I just can't take it anymore. There are people who every once in a while get to me in right now. There's one of those things and, uh, I just want you to know it's worth it as you keep going for the fight and have an amazing, amazing day. Hopefully I can see you at some point at an event or if you're ever in the area in Boise or whatever else or you want hit me up on instagram or facebook, by all means do.
