Hello, everyone. It's that time for the JMOR Tech Talk show. Where we answer questions about technology, explain the way they should work and why they don't sometimes. And now here's your host, John C Morley. Well, Hey everybody. And welcome once again to the JMOR Tech Talk show, happy, healthy, prosperous, wonderful New Year to everyone. It's great to see you, Marcus, how are you doing this year?
Marcus Heart: (00:46)
Hey, happy new year, John, to everyone out there. We are welcome to 2022.
John C. Morley: (00:52)
And you believe we're in 2022 already.
Marcus Heart: (00:55)
I can't believe it, John.
John C. Morley: (00:56)
Can't believe that we are already into 2022 and our first episode of 2022 today, January 7th, we didn't skip an episode. It's just that the way the year fell there was a snow show till the seventh. So we have lots of great stuff. We have some amazing authors coming on? We have a great one coming on pretty soon. Who's going to be talking to us about remote killing, not an easy book to read "How to kill remotely". He's a former military person or Colonel very interesting book but not an easy book to read because of reading about people getting killed. I know it's a job but it's a hard type of book to read Marcus.
Marcus Heart: (01:49)
Yeah, I can imagine
John C. Morley: (01:52)
I'm halfway through it. So I get to finish that book then I can bring him on because one of my guarantees is I always read my guest books from cover to cover. I never bring a guest on and never read their books. So, that's a great thing. Another good thing that happened to us is if many of you were following, we were just featured on Shock Your Potential the international podcast. So we're pleased about that. So let's dive right into what we got for 2022 because we got a lot. Well, first of all, if any of you know, I think it's a Marjorie Taylor Greene, any you familiar with the Marjorie Taylor Greene? Well, her account was suspended. Yes, the representative Marjorie Taylor Greene had been suspended for repeated violations. Now they're starting to clamp down Marcus. She was kind of brought under this because of misinformation that she's disseminating about COVID 19.
Marcus Heart: (03:03)
John C. Morley: (03:05)
And I want to quote what actually Twitter said, "we permanently suspended the account @mtgreenee for repeated violations of COVID 19 misinformation policy." And they were very clear that their strike system for this policy would permanently suspend accounts. They repeatedly violated this rule and Greene appeared to still have access through to her professional account, which is @repmtg but Twitter has not commented on what caused her account to be suspended. Greene said in a statement, I want to quote this recently through her office that she was suspended for tweeting statistics from the vaccine adverse event reporting system. Now I'm not here to get into what's going on with Twitter but all I can tell you is this Twitter does not want any information about COVID getting out to the outside world.
John C. Morley: (04:18)
We could be talking about statistics. We could be talking about speculations, anything that has something to do with what the government is doing. And if you're in, let's say non-parallel to that well, they're going to stop you. And the way they're going to stop you is they're going to slap you. And then they're going to suspend your account. In one breath Marcus, I don't have all the facts to be able to give a truthful recollection of this but Greene was suspended multiple times in 2021 for violating the company's policies. I don't know if she was extorting the truth. I have no idea and last year Greene was issued a suspension for making false claims about widespread voter fraud in Georgia. So she has been temporarily suspended again in July than in August for violating the COVID 19 policy with tweets regarding vaccines. So maybe she said something about the numbers. I don't know but all I know is whether you're on Facebook, whether you're on Instagram, whether you're on Twitter if you're going to make a speculation about something and you can't prove it and that information is not public they're going to collator you.
Marcus Heart: (05:37)
Yeah, they are. And there are national way accounts left and right.
John C. Morley: (05:44)
And I think this was done not so much because of the violation, although I know, I understand that's what they said. I have to believe that this was done because of who Marjorie Taylor Greene is. And being the United States representative she's known by her initials as MTG. She's an American politician businesswoman and a far-right conspiracy theorist as per Google. And she has served as the US representative for Georgia's 14th congressional district since 2021 but she's been a handful for our government to deal with.
Marcus Heart: (06:27)
Yeah. And I'm quite sure she's not going to be the first because we know that many people are standing on different sides of each issue that our country faces. And because we have a certain set of people that we going to push people like this, we are going to find more and more of these types of violations and these types of news down on.
John C. Morley: (06:53)
I think this was done, Marcus as an example. So let the government panel know that we're not going to tolerate any nonsense. And so if you guys think if you are the big brawl that you're just going to be able to just knock us down because you're the government, well think again because we're going to suspend you. Now it's interesting that they suspended her account, not a professional account. So my question is why the heck would you be tweeting things like this on your account, right? If it has something to do with law and order or something to do with our company and you're a representative, why are you even tweeting it on your account? That's my whole first question.
John C. Morley: (07:47)
So I feel there's going to be more of this coming and it's going to happen from not just Twitter, it's going to happen from Instagram, it is going to happen from the owners as well. Facebook, now we call them Meta or whatever we will call them this year or next year till they change their name again. I think a lot of these social media companies, they're scared. They're scared because we're getting whistleblowers as we did with Facebook just last year. And I think they're trying to put people in a place. It almost reminds me what politicians do. Sometimes you become very motivated and passionate about what you want to do for the people. But what a lot of times they'll say, you're like, they may not say it to your face, “You are a bull in a China shop.” Now, what does that mean? It means that if there's a China shop and you pretty much are in there, you're going to just move around and break everything you have to and then just start over or knock the whole shop down.
John C. Morley: (08:49)
And I think a lot of the conservatives if I have to say for a moment I don't want to take a political stance but a lot of the conservative political people don't like this approach because they're afraid of a couple of things. The revocations that might put under their halo for the type of political person they are that might bring repercussion back or the fact that they might be afraid that they're looking to get control. And that usually isn't the case. So I feel that when you're doing something you have to be tactical in how you do it. And it's really important to let the people know that you're not out for their job. You're out to try to work together. And I was just talking about this the other day on my stream which is going on for another week about how to deal with difficult people.
John C. Morley: (09:51)
These people have in their heads that you're after them or you're trying to expose them for something. And so the best thing you can do is go away, literally go away, be cordial with them. If you believe you've done something wrong to them, then make a public apology. One of the best ways to do that is in writing. And if you're having a problem with, let's say it's the mayor, or let's say it's another head official, don't go to that person. Go to somebody who has to report to them. Your message is going to be getting through. Put it in writing, ask for a meeting and send if it is email and say, "Can I have 10 or 50 minutes? I want to share something with you." You go in there and you say to them, "look, I'm a little bit of a zealous person."
John C. Morley: (10:49)
"You know, my heart's always in the right place but sometimes I think because of clashes and egos and the way politics is and I'm though expert in politics then maybe I ruffle a few feathers. Maybe I'm perceived as a bull in a China shop when we're all just trying to do good for everyone. So I like to take this opportunity to formally apologize to you and the committee and the board." Now you might say, "John, I like to go in front of them and apologize in person." Don't do that. Because if you go before the board, you're now going to make that person look very bad and now they're going to become defensive. So the most important things to do are to listen and not be defensive and then kind of go away. And once you said your peace and you go away, don't try to knock the apple cart over. Don't try to gain power. Don't try to cause any problems, just go away and don't be a troublemaker. And if you do something that directly impacts, what they're doing it impacts you. Then you have to make a decision. Are you going to try to win this war? Or would you rather win the battle?
John C. Morley: (12:14)
My suggestion is to forget about the wars because there are going to be many of them. I'd rather lose a few wars and win the battle at the end for when they see I'm a person of the character and morals that they didn't think I was, it might change their reputation of me.
Marcus Heart: (12:34)
Yeah, absolutely. I like that approach. I think that's really good advice John and that shows very good diplomacy on your part. And you know, I think that's a really good tactic.
John C. Morley: (12:47)
A wise person once told me, Marcus everyone always says that there's strength, character, and fighting for what you want. I hear you but sometimes there's more strength, character, and honor in being able to walk away.
Marcus Heart: (13:05)
Yeah, I agree.
John C. Morley: (13:06)
So that is an interesting thing that I believe a lot of people if they have that big ego, they don't want to admit that and it could be a fact that you're younger than them. It could be the fact that you are already popular. And what I found is that if you can let that go when other opportunities come up you might need their blessing. They're just going to grace over that and let you have it because you've let the other rest. Do you know what I'm saying? The other recommendation I suggest to people and you're having trouble with a difficult person is to get a slate or a little blackboard or a whiteboard, whatever you have, have a whole bunch of numbers of junk written on it.
John C. Morley: (14:02)
Then take your race and say, "You know what, Mr. what I'd like to ask you to do? I'd like to ask we've all had challenges. I know I'm not perfect. I'd like to ask your permission if we could erase the slate and start over like nothing ever happened. Can we do that?" And let you start on a clean slate for 2022 or for going forward. And I've had tremendous success with that. They usually come back and say, "You don't have anything you have to apologize for." "Well I understand but I feel there might be some animosity. So I just want to kind of clear everything if that'd be okay." And they're going to be very taken back that you have the humility to want to apologize or don't expect a bow which you're not going to get one but you're going to get a subtle difference in their mind that they're not going to try to challenge you at every moment. That's what I think you're going to see. And as that progresses more and more, you might start to build a friendship. I'm not going to tell you they're going to be your long-lost friend but you might start to build something because there's a commonality of the fact that you two both are working for a common good which is for the people or for an organization or what have you.
Marcus Heart: (15:23)
Yeah, that's brilliant I like that. Showing some community on your part and saying, "Hey, I'm willing to like get this thing a clear plate here."
John C. Morley: (15:37)
I think that's what it's about. Who cares, Marcus, and who cares who was wrong? But we were younger, we always say, "Oh, I have to be right. I have to be right all the time." Why do I have to be right?
Marcus Heart: (15:48)
Why do we always have to be right? I think that's the biggest issue right now is everybody wants to be right.
John C. Morley: (15:56)
And when you're right it's different when you're wrong and you have to say, "Oh, I made a mistake." And when somebody knows, you say, "Hey, I'm human. I made a mistake. I apologize." Now first they're going to poke at you. But then after they poked you for, they're like, "Well, wait a minute. It took that person more respect to admit they were wrong." And I think that's what it's about. But talking about things in 2022 with our world and lots of stuff happening. So we have heard a lot about the battery tech and a lot about wind. So the battery is not going to revolutionize the world right now but what I see is starting to happen the next five to 10 years wind power is going to start helping. And I think we're going to start to see wind power creating a potential to store power in batteries because batteries have a limit. We can get it from solar but we seem to have more ability with the wind than if we are with solar for some reason.
Marcus Heart: (17:06)
Yeah, the wind has been a little bit more reliable. And I think that used to be one of the disadvantages of wind is when reliability and the worry about when turbines being a threat to wildlife.
John C. Morley: (17:21)
It is that and I think there's another thing. And that is the fact that when you deal with heat, you have to always do a lot more adjustment with where the sun is coming from. If the wind isn't coming so it just turns, it's very easy to figure where the wind's coming from. With the sun, you've got to do this whole geometrical or engineering formula to figure out what's the best angle. Also when you deal with the sun you get to be careful that you don't damage things because things in the solar world get broken. Things in the wind world don't get broken. Our issue in the past was just they didn't spin fast enough. So now we're starting to see that I think the wind is going to become the new incubator for power and it's going to be stored to cells like could be the Tesla wall battery or other types of wall batteries. But I'm still on the fence yet as to whether a wall battery is going to replace a generator. I'm still on the fence about that. I think if somebody said to me, "John, what do you want to power your home?" It wouldn't be wind.
John C. Morley: (18:29)
It'd be a gas generator because they're reliable. We know natural gas is here. It definitely wouldn't be a diesel generator and the other thing when you get to think about generators is that if you have something important, you also going to have a battery wall to be able to handle the switchover point. Because when the generator kicks in, which usually takes about 30 to 45 seconds, you lose complete power. There is nothing. And with a computer, if there is no battery on it and you unplug it for even a second and you plug it back in all your temporary storage is gone. There's no getting it back. So I feel that companies going forward today, that have infrastructures that have things that are so volatile to the second. It's not enough to have generators. There has to be something in between before the generator kicks on. And that could be coming through a battery wall, which could be recharged by either power or possibly wind.
Marcus Heart: (19:46)
Yeah. That makes a lot of sense.
John C. Morley: (19:49)
The gas generator could even help to charge the walls. There are going to be lots of safety issues coming up but I just see our world being more about sustainability.
Marcus Heart: (20:01)
Yeah, because we don't know what's going to happen. There are been so many natural disasters even coming to the year. You see what happened with the Northern part of Georgia you get to have a way to keep things going when things happen.
John C. Morley: (20:22)
I think it's a challenge and people don't know where to go. Some people can't get workers. We can't even get parts from certain places of the country and they say it's because of COVID. But I think I'm sick of hearing that.
Marcus Heart: (20:37)
Yeah, I'm very sick of hearing COVID, I was told that I'll be waiting four months at a BMW park.
John C. Morley: (20:46)
And when do the four months start? Did it start already or does it start like when they get it? When does it start?
Marcus Heart: (20:53)
No one could give me a clear answer.
John C. Morley: (20:56)
They keep changing the shipping dates. I had this happen for a client. They changed the shipping date suddenly. It was supposed to go in October to November to December to June, that's just pathetic. And I think it just goes back to the point Marcus that we're not manufacturing enough in the United States. We need to become sustainable so that we can exist as a country, without the other countries. So the United States can operate independently. I mean look what's going on with the electric cars. Now the company that's making in China and Japan, they're going to make their battery chain centers. We don't have that in the United States. And then of course we all know about the global chip shortage that's been going on and on and on. And how can you manage the business during this crisis? When does the chip shortage just keep going on and when is this chip shortage ever going to end?
John C. Morley: (22:13)
Everything that we have in technology uses a chip in some form or fashion and with the rapid change and growth of the IoT, which is the internet of things has been one of the big earmarks that have helped but also been a big problem in the industry because of the pandemic we didn't need as many IoT devices. Now we need a lot more of them for medical and things like that. The US needs the world of developing and selling semiconductors. We account for roughly 45% to 50% of global billings. Manufacturing has now shifted to Asia, Taiwan and Korea now account for 83% of global processor chip production and 70% of memory chip output, and the region's lead is projected to continue to expand at that rate we're not going to produce anything in the United States. Now you know what that means? Our prices to acquire chips are going to go up more and more. And with things like windows 11, which I'm not a big proponent of right now, you can't even use Windows 11 without a TPM chip. And most of the computers that were manufactured a few years ago don't have a TPM chip. So people who want to upgrade a Windows 11 can't even do it if they wanted to, not that they should because there's a shortage of TPM chips.
John C. Morley: (23:50)
This is just crazy Marcus.
Marcus Heart: (23:52)
Yeah, It's terrible and it's disgraceful but the country hasn't allowed us to be run into.
John C. Morley: (24:05)
I don't know if I buy this Marcus, they claim that the people that were making chips were forced to make other things because of COVID. I don't know if I buy that they also blame the people that were making beer and these other things that they can't make them now because they switched over 90% of operations to make hand sanitizer. I just can't buy that.
Marcus Heart: (24:34)
No, I can't either.
John C. Morley: (24:36)
Some companies are making N95 masks. I just see this is as crazy and companies like zoom and other companies out there are profiting but automakers are still having a challenge.
Marcus Heart: (24:54)
John C. Morley: (24:57)
And then after canceling orders early in the pandemic many suppliers became angry and now have tightened their supply. I just feel like this whole thing is something that the other countries planned on stage. It was just too precise. This was more than a pandemic. This was a global disaster.
Marcus Heart: (25:26)
John C. Morley: (25:29)
And everything was just architecture too properly for it to just fall into place.
Marcus Heart: (25:42)
Well, it is clear who's winning during this whole crisis and who's not.
John C. Morley: (25:53)
It's not the United States.
Marcus Heart: (25:55)
No, it's not.
John C. Morley: (25:57)
But the question is when will the chip shortage end? Do you know what the answer is around expected today, early? "2023." I want to quote Deloitte Touché and they said the report released at the end of the year they're saying that by the end of 2022 customers will still be waiting 10 to 20 weeks for multiple kinds of chips to go into cars and other types of devices that we use every day from laptops to remote controls to cell phones to security devices. So that means the world is going to be crippled for about another year.
Marcus Heart: (26:55)
And it all takes us back from when they originally said about this whole thing, you know, they did it all sounds like lies.
John C. Morley: (27:08)
And according to Gaurav Gupta Gartner's vice president for somebody conducting electronics. He said something as well that I want to quote, "Enterprise networking chips recovery would also be towards the end of 2022." So no matter how your skin, the orange or the apple here, you're still talking about the end of 2022. And unfortunately, this is affecting so many things but they're all blaming it on COVID-19. They're claiming that factories in China were working too hard. I just never heard anything as stupid as this and then people say to me, "John, why isn't the chip shortage is going to end soon?" Well, because they don't want it to end soon. The global chip shortage has been so far-reaching this year that it became a meme back in early December. And I want to quote one person had said, "I'm sorry. I forgot out to do the dishes. There's a global chip shortage."
John C. Morley: (28:34)
Now we can joke about this all we want but this is serious. It's affecting medical devices, systems and hospitals can't get fixed because we can't get a chip. That's just crazy and we already know what happened with NVidia and then the video chip industry. That's been a whole disaster with card prices not just doubling and tripling and being extorted by these people that are just crazy. This is even causing problems with the Microsoft Xbox, AT&T similar products, other Wi-Fi devices, and routers we are talking about a lot of stuff.
Marcus Heart: (29:22)
John C. Morley: (29:24)
And the really big one with the cars is they can't get the chips to start the cars. That's why they sticker-priced cars with another $5000 or $10,000.
Marcus Heart: (29:37)
And they did it you know why Marcus? They did it because they can. We've been hearing a long time about Metaverse, I'm sure you remember Metaverse. Metaverse is this virtual reality world where people can come together in a hybrid environment they can ask questions. They can interact with bots and other types of systems. It's a new kind of place where humans and bots play games, conduct business, socialize and even shop to conform to life. But the real question is it's not a reality yet it's something that's in the sky. Metaverse might be a few years away. We've got bigger challenges right now to get chips into products that we can see and use, forget a virtual world. We can't even make our real-world work. How the heck are we going to make a virtual world work? So I think what Facebook was jumping on this, they're jumping on something that could be very big but I don't think our world is ready to grasp more concepts like animal crossing, sports night and other types of virtual reality games and augmented reality games because we're still trying to solve the immediate problem at hand, which is the supply chain logistics issue. I'd rather have a product that is something that I could touch and explore in person than something I control through billions of miles over the internet and fiber optics.
John C. Morley: (31:33)
So I have to see what Metaverse is going to be but it's not here. Things like Oculus and Quest and there is some beginning to this but we're just scraping the surface and it's not where it needs to be right now because we don't have the infrastructure to build it. We don't have the chips to build it. And for a while I've talked about this Marcus, everybody's concerned about AI artificial intelligence. The biggest challenge we talk about is security all the time. And the AI backlash is not a joke, it's a serious problem. Artificial intelligence businesses are getting exploited by more AI algorithms and even everyday citizens because they're saving money. After all, businesses are learning about their habits. People said to me, "John, when you build your dream home, would you put smart technology in it?" And I said absolutely.
John C. Morley: (32:36)
But one thing I won't do it, I won't put technology that links to everything on the internet. Cameras have to link fine but I don't want my lights, my blinds, my water I don't want them all being controlled remotely. The only way I want them controlled is onsite or through a remote, that is local on a private network. I don't want them getting outside of the home. I don't want them linked to Alexa or Google Wi-Fi. I mean, that's just ridiculous. I think you're just planning an attack when you do that. Just one hacker has to get in there. So why not just leave it the heck off the internet and keep your cameras separate from everything. But nobody wants to do that like, "Oh, I could just do it on my phone." It's great but what if something goes wrong? "Oh, that never happens." You have to wait till it does. You're talking about a major problem. A virus shutting your house down that you can't get water out of faucets. I don't like that, I like the idea of things being automated but I don't like it to a point where everything is too controlled. I don't even like the idea when you push something and seven things happen. Like you push a button and your stereo comes on, the water place and the fireplace. I don't know if I'm too in love with that idea.
Marcus Heart: (34:00)
Yes. That's beyond it.
John C. Morley: (34:04)
I think having smart faucets and things like that and having things you could touch, you control lighting and stuff like that. But I think when we get beyond lighting, that's when I get a little uncomfortable, I think it's nice to have blinds and stuff but I like everything to have its own separate thing. I don't want seven things being controlled when I decide to push one button that says open house. Sorry, I don't feel comfortable with that. But the technology provider, "Oh, it's so safe." Yeah, until they have a lawsuit.
Marcus Heart: (34:34)
Exactly. You are part of that.
John C. Morley: (34:36)
About speaking about new technology. Well, you guys all know CES, The CES show. Well, CES has unfortunately, we learned just today that they're ending a day early. We talked last week about many of the companies not wanting to be a part of it and some of them are going to be virtual but some of them don't even want to be a part of it virtually. They've taken additional safety measures to current health protocols to put in place. And the event organizer the CTA consumer technology association had said that the event is going to end today, January 7th. And I think it's interesting but in the same breath, I think this wasn't the right time to do a CES show. I think we probably either should have stayed virtual but you got companies like Google that don't even want to waste their resources to have a virtual booth. Something is wrong with that picture.
Marcus Heart: (36:02)
Yeah, it sounds like it wasn't interested in the first place.
John C. Morley: (36:07)
And I think it's because the CES didn't take the approach of COVID. I think maybe they needed to focus more on technology, we're seeing so much technology now around but I just feel that the world is not ready for a whole bunch of minutiae on them. When they have a job just to deal with whether they're going to get COVID or not, whether it's safe to go outside or should they wear a mask when going to the food store. It's crazy Marcus it's insane. So 2022 is going to be a lot more automation but I think it's going to be important that we have our due diligence to understand what is going to be pulled from us. We've talked about the bill of rights we've all heard bill rights from utility companies and other types of providers.
John C. Morley: (37:14)
But do we know what information is being pulled from us? I'd say the answer is no. "Oh, you could save a hundred dollars a month." "Yeah but you just know how you got there was a commercial on TV." "Oh, well honey, I just gave my social security number and that's how I got free parking." "Oh, I just gave our home address and we got free popcorn for a year." That's how my brother got a free car wash for a month by just giving out three birthdays in his family. And we laugh about this Marcus but it's really serious. I always say to people, you wouldn't give your credit card out to a total stranger in person. Why the heck are you doing it on the internet? Is it the fact that you're alone and you feel you're all cozy and warm and nothing can happen to you? And you're, how can I say facade that you're painting?
John C. Morley: (38:21)
I mean, you just feel that there's no way you could be in any danger. I think people have developed a false sense of security at home and do not realize that the more they increase their bandwidth, which is not a bad thing as long as you have the right security. I always say to people, it's not a question if you will be a hack but when? If you don't have the right security, most people don't even know about having security, let's say block things like ransomware. And it's not the fact that you could just reformat your laptop and get up and running again. It's all the information that you might have willingly handed over to a hacker, to the enemies.
John C. Morley: (39:18)
So I think as 2022 evolves, we as citizens and business owners need to be cognizant about what information is being pulled from us, where it's being used. Is it being sold to anybody? And we need to know that before we decide on if we're going to render that information. So I think 2022 is going to get a few people back on the planet going again. But one thing I do want to lead with is that there's a lot of people out there, whether it's dating, whether it's shopping, they're making excuses to not want to do something because it's COVID so go, do it safely. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't go meet somebody. It doesn't mean you should stop your life. I was giving a presentation the other day and the person's like, "Well, I'm not ready to do something I'll wait until things calm down with the spike."
John C. Morley: (40:16)
So I said to the person, "If that's what you're telling your partner or the person you're dating. I would respond to that person." He says, "What would you say?" I say, "I'm not a texting guy and I'm not looking to have a relationship with my phone. So I'm looking to date. It seems like you're not, which is perfectly okay. I wish you all the best and take care." You need to put your foot down and enough of this COVID nonsense because when you do that, these phony people. Because when you do that these phony people are going to fall to the wayside. They're still using COVID markets as a crutch and we need to stop being enablers and allowing people to use COVID as a crutch because they want to feel safe. They're not feeling safe. They're starting to be deceptive and they're starting to lie about what they want in life. And I think that's the biggest problem I see with COVID is people are using COVID to abuse others.

John C. Morley: (42:18)
That's what it's about and I want to share with you, in just a few months, I'm launching my first book ever "25 Gifts of inspiration to change your life and everyone else in it." And I want to leave you with an amazing thing that I shared on one of my casts the other day. If you want things to happen in your life, no one is going to make them happen for you. So you've got to do it yourself. And you got to be committed by not just having a positive attitude but taking the time right now. If you have not already done it, I know it's the 7th of January, but it's never too late. Sit down, spend a few hours and write down everything either on paper or in words that you want in your life. Now notice I said the words, "Want in your life." I didn't say believe you can have in your life.
John C. Morley: (03:53)
That's relationships, that's things you want possessions, that skills you want in your life, and that trips you want to go on every single night before you go to bed or when you get up whatever is easy for you. Review that list and believe you already have those things. I want you to write down at least 300 things. When you get to 75 things you're going to make, "Oh my God, I can't do anymore." Well, that's when it gets hard but that's when you got to dig deep because see your mental capacities are shutting down because you're not used to being this abundant. You're not used to having this. The more you exercise that muscle, the more your abundance muscle is going to start expecting things and causing your brain to think in ways that you've never thought of before. Now, this isn't for the people who are looking for everybody to do everything for it.
John C. Morley: (44:10)
This isn't for the people that are going to get things handed to them. This is for the people who want to make a change in their life. That's what it's about. Do you want to have an amazing 2022 or do you want to do what a friend of mine once said, "My car stopped working? So I went out to the local auto body shop, bought a spark plug for $50. Put it in drove another 20 miles, the car made some wonderful noises. Happened again, happened a third time." Are you changing spark plugs in your life when the problem is deeper? The problem might be with the whole engine manifold. So are you going to act the same way you did in 2021 and expect different results? If you are, that's insanity. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insanity.
John C. Morley: (45:13)
So I'm asking you right now friends. Are you tired of getting the same results you had in 2021? If you're not that's okay, then just keep doing everything you were doing. And it'll be the same way it was this year but if you want to make a difference if you want people to say wow, not because you're great but because you choose to apply yourself. The energy will be so infectious and you'll have friends that you don't even want. But remember, you've got to take the step and do the mental work. If you don't, none of this is going to become a reality. This was our first show, January 7th of the JMOR Tech Talk show. It has been a privilege, a pleasure, and an honor to be with you today. Unfortunately, we got to say goodbye, Marcus.
