So here's the big question how are entrepreneurs like us who have been hustling and struggling to make it to success, who seem to make it one step forward, two steps back work getting. That is the question.
Hello, everyone, and welcome, welcome, welcome to the Mind Body Business Show, I am beyond excited. I was just telling my wife right before I said I am really excited for this one. And it's because of this amazing, amazing man you are about to meet. Oh, I cannot wait to share him with you, Colonel Waldo Waldman, he is an amazing, amazing man and I cannot wait to get into some stories with him. Former fighter pilot served our country and thank you so much for doing so. And he has been in combat missions. I can imagine what stories he has to tell, but he has taken himself from the combat world into the career world. And that means in the business world and we're going to really dove deep tonight. This is going to be fun. The mind body business show. What is that all about? Well, in my now fifty six years on this planet, I spent about the last 10 or so just focused on successful people trying to understand and figure out what it is that made them more successful than, say, me. And after being with mentors like actual real mentors that I worked with for several years and reading books and meeting some of those authors, reading books of other authors who are no longer with us and just studying successful people in general. I started seeing patterns develop that kept trickling to the top, you know, bubbling up. And those three patterns you might figure out are part of the name of this very show mind. And that is each and every one to a person had developed a rock solid, positive and most importantly, flexible mindset. And then there's body. Each and every one of them also took great care of themselves, both nutritionally and exercise. So they took care of themselves from the inside and out. And then business business is multi multifaceted. And what each of these successful people had done and mastered the various areas of various skill sets that are necessary to not only create a thriving business, but to maintain and ever increase that business.
And those are skill sets like marketing, sales, team building, systematizing leadership that it just goes on and on and on. The list goes on forever. The good news is that no one person ICU needs to become a master at all of those skill sets. You really only need one of those that I already mentioned. Once you've mastered that one skill set, you can then branch out into the others. And that one skill set is leadership. Perfect because of the gentleman you are about to meet. That is his forte. That is what he does, what he trains corporations and entrepreneurs and business people in the area of leadership. And I cannot wait to dove deep into that.
So once you have mastered that skill of leadership, you can then delegate to others who have the skill sets already developed in those other areas. Because here, look, it's going to take more than a lifetime to master every skill set necessary if one person if it were up to one person. And so that's the good news. Another thing about very successful people that I found is they are all to a person, very, very avid readers. And with that, I like the Segway very quickly into a segment I affectionately call bookmarks.
Bookmarks who want to read bookmarks, ready, steady, read bookmarks brought to you by reach your peak library dot com.
There you see, reach your peak library dot, and a real quick word of advice, and that is instead of going off and clicking and looking for these resources while the show is going live, instead maybe take out that good old fashioned piece of paper and that writing instrument that goes with it, a pen or a pencil, and instead write this down, write this resource down. And then when Colonel Waltman comes on, we're going to have a lot more resources to jot down. So that way you don't miss a thing, because I would really hate it for you to miss one golden nugget from this man, because here's the thing. The magic happens in the room. Stay with us. To the end, take notes, whether it's on paper, whether it's on notepad, on your computer, whatever your means. But keep with us and get the most out of this, because this is about. My guest expert, this is not about me, and he brings great value to the show, your peak library. What is that all about? That is a website. I literally had put together with you in mind. Who are you? Entrepreneurs, business people that are looking to take it to the next level of success, whatever that is for you. And what I did was over the course of the last 10 years or so, I began cataloging all of the books that I had read that had profound impact on me either in business life or personal life or both. And so now you can go to a list that's at least vetted by one other successful person and have a higher likelihood of getting a good read in one that will have a positive impact on your life.
And speaking of positive impact on your life, no more no more teasing. It is time to bring on our guest expert. Here we go.
It's time for the guest expert spotlight, savvy, skillful, professional and deft, trained, big league qualified.

Now let's get to the man of the hour, Lou Tenwick. Colonel Waldo Waldman is a Hall of Fame leadership keynote speaker, executive coach and author of The New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller Never Fly Solo. His branding is immaculate, ladies and gentlemen. So picked pay attention to that. Take notes. Known as the winchman, he's an Air Force Academy graduate, combat decorated fighter pilot and expert in resilience, courage and helping others accelerate performance in changing environments. I mean, if anyone knows how to do this, you're looking at him and it's this guy over here is that guy. His clients include listen to this Marriott, American Express, Verizon, the Denver Broncos football team. And he's been featured on CNN Fox News Magazine Inc magazine and the Harvard Business Review. Finally, formally welcome to the show, my man, Colonel Waldo Waldman. Great to see you, Brian.
I have been so looking forward to this, and I love to learn about what your past experiences are, especially transitioning from not even a corporate world, but a government world which might even be more restrictive and more stringent than a corporate world into the entrepreneurial space. And for me, I've always what I've learned is the first word of this show is mind and mindset. It all starts up here. And I always love to peel away the onion and find out what's going on. That big, beautiful brain of yours, Waldo, that got you where you are today and keeps propelling you farther forward. So for you, when you get up in the morning knowing that there are challenges to meet each and every day as an entrepreneur, we know it's not easy. All of us know this when you know that you're about to face all these challenges every single day and you just continue to crush it for you. What is it that's going through your mind when you say get up and start your day to get you going and drive through and power through another day?
You just said it just then. The challenge. Some people are intimidated by challenge, others Welcome it. Challenge for me was a reason why I chose to go to the Air Force Academy when I could have met almost any other school I wanted to challenge.
I didn't. I always wanted to fly jets. I wasn't sure about flying fighters until I went to the academy and then saw the Jets and learned about them. But I always wanted to be in an environment where I was challenged. It's something inside of me maybe growing up with a twin brother, being competitive, having a demanding parent, which which there are some negatives to that. But in many ways there were great things to that. So I thrive on challenge and I love to be dependable. When somebody says, can I depend on you, that's what really the basis of winchman and never fly solo is about. So being Welcome, being welcoming to challenges is very, very important thing for any performer, because life will be very dreadful and you will suffer if you do not embrace challenges and enjoy the journey. And sometimes the scars that happen both both mentally and physically, when you when you take them on land, I couldn't agree more about life would be kind of dull if we didn't have these daily challenges.
If you didn't have anything in front of you to to solve or overcome that, that's not a life to me anymore. And sounds like the same for you. Thank you. Three I marketing for coming in and saying hello and Chris defeat the fearless. I don't know if I said that right. Maybe that's interesting. This picture isn't coming through there, but thank you for coming not we look forward to having you all comment, ask questions as we go through and yeah, that's the thing. I always ask this question often, although where I say, look, if you were to actually reach that ceiling, that there was this mythical ceiling and you reached it in business and in life and you could not go any farther, you're done. You've hit the top. What would that feel like? When there's no more room for progression.
Well, while it goes back to the challenge and also realizing that part of the challenge, I think when you really become more altruistic and reach a certain peak, right.
Is the byproduct of your success, who are you helping? Who you coaching? Are you impacting? So you may have a mindset, ceiling or ceiling and your business and career, but then it's time to now move your hand down and lift people up. Right. You can keep grabbing to the top. Right. And, you know, seeking on the ladder of life. You got to have a hand up. I always say reach one or two rungs up, not too far up, but then and ask for help with honor, but then have a hand down and say, who can I really impact? And I think in that sense and I coach a lot of leaders who kind of have this, you know, that they see and they're seeing a light at the end of the tunnel and they're losing that drive and ambition. Now, the elevation is seeking others. You can help finding a way to impact your family. I've got a nine and a half year old running around right now getting them soccer coaching. I love spending time with him. I've got family members. My mom's eighty six. She's in the hospital now. My sisters, they're helping her out. Some spend a lot of my time showing my success, not necessarily, not necessarily in business, but impacting my family in a positive way and maybe coaching somebody, a young twenty four year old kid. I got some of them on LinkedIn that I've been helping out. Nothing in return, nothing that I'm going to Facebook or post a LinkedIn comment about just giving. And that also is what helps elevate your mindset when you're facing a challenge, because sometimes we got to get out of this damn noggin that's holding us back and give to others, especially as we're going through covid-19 and meeting a lot of people who are struggling the in the dungeon of despair and paralyzed to take action.
You are the epitome of the person I love to have on the show is just completely encapsulated right there. That was phenomenal because here's the thing. A lot of people I don't know if we'll go too deep into the media side of things, but media has painted a picture of anyone that is successful or wealthy as a negative person, as a bad thing. And the interesting thing is, having done this show now for over two years and a one prior to this for another two years with a lot of successful entrepreneurs, nothing could be further from the truth. And what the media is portraying successful people to be, to look like, to act like they act and they are like what you just described you are and I salute you, my man, because if this is one of my missions, is to get the word out by this show, by letting people understand that the true successful people are the ones that love to serve. And those that are watching media are saying all those wealthy people, they just got handed this and they have this negative emotion toward them. In fact, mine's the opposite. I want you, Colonel Waldo Waldman, to exponentially grow your wealth. I mean, insanely, because I know that as you do that you will use part of that or a good portion of it to scale and serve more people like you just described.
Yeah, and it's about freedom, the freedom to make your choices, hopefully. Right. Choices, freedom. Did you know one of my favorite quotes that I didn't make it up, but it's when you sip from the fountain, don't forget who dug the well. And so a lot of people in our lives have dug out well for us. And part of our responsibility, it's not just about our motivation and our passion, it's about our responsibility. You know, when I flew in combat, it wasn't just about flying the jets, jumping in a plane. I had wings on my chest that winchman men and women, depending on me, I had a responsibility to go out and kick some butt and to know my aircraft and to hit the target. And as business people, as successful people, provided we have the right intentions provided that were honorable, we have a responsibility to pay it forward, to dig our own well sometimes. And then to and to to to make sure we're helping others dig there. Well, and once again, you know, look at look at what people post on social media. And once in a while I'm going to share some great stuff that I'm doing. You know where I'm going. I'm Trav. I got some great clients.
But there are others who are always posted about how great they are, the most philanthropic people, the most kind hearted, loving people, you know, successful people. Most of them aren't sharing all of their great things that they do and are sharing their story. There's one guy I was reading, the former military guy. I read his post the other day, really nice guy, but he spent like twelve paragraphs telling all the great things that he's doing and all his background and his sufferings and baba blah. Like it's this sense of insecurity that we have. Share all our successes, just do it and what you seek, you shall find what you give you shall get in return. And that's that's what's beautiful about life. And the more I live it is 50 years old, the more I honor and respect. And really look up to. Successful people that may not have the money in their wallets, but the honor, the character, the embodiment of the American spirit that we just celebrated last week for Veterans Day. That, to me, Brian, is true success. And it's not based on your wealth in dollars. It's based on the wealth and impact that you make often behind the scenes, doing honorable things for your community. And that's what I think truly define success. And to get there, you need freedom, right? You need the time to get there. You got to sacrifice and sweat, build a business, build relationships, overcome some hurdles, get your butt shot down in the process. Just like a lot of people that may be watching this. We're going to struggle. We're going to we're going to get shot down a little bit just to build that resilience, to get back up and stay focused on the prize, build the freedom to pay it forward and make the pie a lot bigger for people to make a man.
I mean, goodness. Chris says the thing I took away from all that was how to be a better and successful friend to others. Being a wingman to your friends is what makes life better. So true. And then Mardi Gras. Thanks for coming on. Push it up. What a good job. You look good for fifty two and Marty is a great friend of mine.
We both had the same have the same birthday, the exact same day we were at a conference. He hired me to, to speak at his conference. He's great in the landscaping industry, by the way. Save a tree just reached out. Marty, I want to talk to you about that. They got a program in January, hopefully, hopefully going to get the program. But Marty, the consummate honorable entrepreneur, speaker landscape professionally, he's got a program called Ace as well. He and I are very good friends.
And part of success is knowing your limitations and weaknesses and being able to call out to someone for help. You see, Marty knows that I could call him any day of the week and he can call me any day of the week, take off his mask and say hello. I'm messing up. I'm hurting, I'm deflated. I'm getting shot down. I'm running out of fuel. Kick my butt, lift me up. Put put me straight. And that relationship. Is based on.
You know, open, honorable conversations and mutual respect, and I respect him tremendously, and he's somebody that I consider a good friend and I'm thankful that he's watching this program because he just kick some butt. And sorry about the loss of your friend to Marty. I read that post yesterday, seemed like a great guy.
And you just sealed another thing, which is the importance of true relationships, not just superficial ones where, well, we're friends on Facebook, but we've never met and we don't actually talk on any kind of basis other than typing back and forth on post maybe a day or two. And a lot of people have lost sight. Entrepreneurs lost sight of the importance of that personal touch of one on one. Yeah, it takes more time, but it's a vital component in any business or personal relationship you must have.
Those personal connections is at best, you got to invest, has a lot of cursing and haphazard relationships. People, you know, you see it on LinkedIn all the time. I really looking to get to know you. And hey, you have a couple a couple of seconds. You know, can can we get on a quick chat? No, I don't have time for a quick chat. Right. You have time because you're seeking me out. And I'm being a little bit facetious here because I built great relationships with people. I spent ten thousand dollars on my website. Jordan, Howard, look them up on LinkedIn. Great guy. Built my website. I love this guy. He's honestly seek me out on LinkedIn, need a customized message shot a video sharing how he can help me with my website. Research put in the time sweat. He didn't take the LinkedIn contact for granted and he earned me. He earned the right to give me time for me to give him five more minutes. But don't pick people's brains, massage their cranium, you know, don't ask for a quick chat. Provide a solution because you did some legwork up front to nurture the relationship. Hopefully get some business, but true, authentic relationships because you really want to learn about what somebody else does. Their success stories or how you can really help them is a byproduct of hard work. And I think people are lazy loafers. They use social media as a quick, cursory, you know, instant access to people. But we're bombarded, right? Right now. We're bombarded way too much.
Take the time to nurture those relationships, just like I've done with Martin, with Chris. I think he saw me speak. I think he's with with a food performance for grouper, not food service. I can't remember. But you can build a relationship. And nurture one through words. You can have a pen pal on LinkedIn or Facebook, but then there's a time like you inferred to pick up the phone. Let's connect. Let's do a zoom call. Let's look eye to eye. And as you could tell on this call, especially as we get more used to video staring at that camera, sensing somebody's energy and passion, how we look in how we how we got back, how we use our props, that medium. It's a great medium and you can really build and further relationships and and create some bonds that you may not have had just by on the phone, you know, anyway.
And 16 men, the sexiest fighter on the planet.
It is it's it's a beauty and the heck out of it, you know.
Gorgeous. Yeah. You said so many unbelievable, wonderful nuggets right there. And it's all about when it comes down to it and you epitomize it is leadership and leading by example. And I read a great book is called Leaders Eat Last. I can't remember the author's name. I know you have one of your own. Never fly solo. I think I see it. Do you have that to put up closer to the screen the.
Yeah, so so there it is, never fly solo. The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal bestseller. So. I also have this book here, The Daily Stoic, I read spiritual stuff during the day, these are sixty five meditations I love reading some small stackable content is my buddy Chip Eichelberger likes to call it.
But, you know, feeding our brain and reading is such an important part of that, that mind body, body business component. I was I was talking to my son yesterday, Brian, and any parent would understand this because he's going to be 10 years old, he's playing soccer and he's he's doing actually pretty well. We hired a little coach with him and he worked with the coach yesterday. And he was working all sorts of muscles and he was in a lot of pain last night. He did get an hour training session. Then he spent 90 minutes playing soccer and his muscles that have an ache before Nankin. And I said, how does that feel? What is it? Was it mean to you? And he said, you know, Wheen's I worked really hard. I'm like, and so that pain is telling you. A story it's it's showing you that you put in the time and those skill sets that you're learning on the soccer field, the practice, the humbling, the messing up, the the constant work and refinement so that you work on your hand, eye coordination, you balanced your skills.
It's going to fully reveal itself maybe a week or two or maybe a year later. You just never know.
And so we have to be willing to put in the work to to read to create another context of success that we may not get by listening to ourselves write our own cranium. Sometimes the things that we tell ourselves is the most messed up things. So you need new tools. So we do it through our books. I'll share a little bit more about Never Fly Solo later, but I liken it, and this is important for the folks watching this or listening when you're on this podcast, watching these people, listening to Brian.
When you're reading that book, when you're attending the seminar, when you're having that conversation with that new relationship that you're nurturing over a virtual cup of coffee, you may be in six months when we're able to get together, they're providing you insights. Making you perhaps a little uncomfortable, maybe forcing you to get a little sore because you're training yourself to think in a new way. And you're creating new tools in your toolbox to access when you need to solve a problem, juggle a ball, negotiate with a client, have a conversation with your wife that you may be having an argument with or watching your weight increase because you're losing the discipline and mindset needed to stay mentally, physically in shape and have that horsepower.
So seek and you shall find read the books, attend the seminars. You made a choice today to listen to this and to watch me speak. Some of you that know me, but look at it as a tool, as an investment in one day, as long as you keep practicing it, you're going to think back in this conversation. Maybe it's something that I'm going to share with you today or that book that you're going to read. I've got the tool. I'm going to solve the problem.
And that's part of life, gathering as many tools that we can and then perhaps sharing those tools with somebody, a business partner or a customer or somebody that we love and care about as they seek to reach new heights in life.
They set of perfectly with stacking, stacking your tools, and it's very similar to like reading the same book a second, third or fourth time and realizing and noticing that I'm learning new stuff that I didn't the first time. The second time. The third time. What happened? And I always ask them. I said, so tell me that the pages literally change on you. Did you pull some of them out? Did you rearrange them? And they're like, no. Well, what changed then? And they finally get it said, well, I did because they grew and they were ready for the next level of learning. And the same thing of what you were just talking about, Waldo's attend seminars. Do that. Oh, my gosh. You remember Mr. T. you're old enough to remember him, right? And remember the gold chains he wore around his neck? I mean, they would I don't know if I could stand. That was a lot of weight. He had a bunch. Well, I'd go to so many seminars. You know, they give you those those attendance lanyards with the badge on the bottom line, kept as many as I could as they would allow. And I have more of those than Mr. T has gold chains. I put them on when I go on stage to show people just show up like you're saying, go to these seminars, feed your brain, read books and read the right books, read it's OK to have downtime. We're not saying don't have leisure time and relax, but when you are reading books, make sure they're feeding your brain in a positive way. When you're going to seminars, make sure there's an outcome that you had in mind before you went that was positive and just keep going forward. And I'm just kind of parroting everything he said already. But I just I saw a line with this. It's amazing. I love this.
That go ahead.
No, you're you're amazing guy Lloyd Lofton just came on while was being modest. All right. He has helped tons of people through Georgia chapter of National Speakers Association. I've seen a mentor, aspiring speakers the last five years I've been involved. That must have been the guy we were talking about earlier, isn't it?
That is Lloyd. Yeah, Lloyd. Lloyd is the one that that to phone and asked and recommended that I get on the show. And Lloyd is a guy that's a hard worker, great financial financial top gun and somebody that builds relationships. So thanks. Thanks for that, Lloyd. I appreciate it.
An amazing guy too. And I can see why he's affiliated with you and vice versa. The integrity factor, the character factors to the roof. So thank you, Lloyd. I appreciate that so very much, because without you, I wouldn't have been able to meet this amazing guy and end the show with you is amazing as well. Lloyd, I just so appreciate all of you. You're amazing because, look, well, there's not getting paid to be on the show. This is time out of his life. This is time away from his nine and a half year old son, from his wife, from his his mom, from everything. And he is doing this for you. He's not doing this for me. He's doing this for you to give you the value to help you succeed. And you know that because he opened the show by saying it's all about serving. It's not about him making more money, although that is important. And I hope he makes a boatload of money so that he can do continue what he's doing now at a scaled version. Money amplifies who you already are. What don't you want an amplified version of this guy? I do.
I do. That's just me.
I'm sure everyone watching and listening thinks the same way. You know, we're talking about mind, body business. And one of the key components is our physical fitness, both inside and out. And I know as a fighter pilot, I mean, people may not realize this, but you have to be in pretty immaculate shape to fly an airplane, to go through the G forces and everything you go through and mentally as well be right on top of it. So I'm curious now that that is behind you and now you're in the business realm and you've been for quite some time. I think you said around eighteen years or so in this realm. How has that transferred over the importance of physical fitness into your business and personal life? Since that time?
I mentioned the word before horsepower.
You know, your ability to grind it out. You know, resilience is mind fitness and body fitness. I still take it very seriously. You know, I'm in pretty good shape, way around one fifty five as my fighting weight. I'm five seven.
I try to have a green smoothie every day. I read that. I figure that out through through the example of some of my buddies in a garage. Whities. He's a warrior coach. Really, really good guy, really obnoxious foul mouth but really smart, does some great stuff. And I was listening to this podcast, you know, and then he said, you know, these green smoothies are great. You got to feed your mind and feed your body and let your cells ingest great, great content so that you can you can metabolize greatness. And so your energy is a byproduct of what you eat and working out. I work out four times a week, at least a lot of times I'll be reading books on on my I have a recumbent bike, so I'll sit back with my little readers because I'm going blind to fifty two and I'll read and I'll get a heart rate up and I'll start thinking this way. I wrote my book Never Fly Solo. Most of this book was written on USA Today's in magazines and plus a paper that I went to the gym. So I was killing two birds with one stone. I was maximizing my time when you elevate your heart rate and sweat a little bit.
For me, at least, I become creative, I start thinking and I will multitask as well. I'll read some news, I'll send some text message, I'll call people, they have to understand I'm going to be a little out of breath and I'm talking to them about squeezing as much juice out of the day as you can.
And so for me, setting the context of the day, I call it setting the vector of your day, what do you do when you wake up?
I always say start your day in service. I make my wife a cup of coffee. I feed the dog and cat. I say a prayer.
I read a little little passage either through daily stoic or through some other books I can show you. And sometimes I'll read it to my wife and son. Today we read it before we went to school and I wanted to share some philosophies with him and then I will sweat. I'll get my heart rate up if actually and then I try to meditate three or four times a week, I should be doing that more. But I want to get into the gym and sweat and think and come up with my plan for the day. And it catapults me and gives me horsepower out the gate. And to sustain that momentum for the day because we have to be on our toes, especially as entrepreneurs. So fitness is important. It allowed me to think well in this and also to overcome the G forces and cramped in this jet flying eight hours at night, you had to have had to have a tough Hynie No. One, but you also had to be present and you had to be in shape. And we we'll talk about resilience a little bit later, but. I still take that into my life now, because you can see my energy now, it's nine o'clock at night. I want to be energized and think more so I could serve more people and give better ideas and emulate excellence in my own life, if I'm sitting here like a toad, bored to death and kind of, you know, not full of energy, you're just not going to really people aren't going to game on again much. So there's a method to the madness put in the time work on your health and fitness because we'll give you more horsepower to make it through the day and get another round around the track.
I feel your passion. I feel your energy. It's amazing. I feel like I'm I think we were separated at birth. We must be brothers by another mother. So much is so I mean, I honestly get sad when I see the clock and like, I should probably go to bed now. I don't want to. I got more to do. I want to keep going. I wish there was no need for sleep, but we need to get sleep. We need to get plenty of it. And it's very important. And yeah. So we're getting some great comments. Richard Verrier, thanks for coming on. He says the body supports the brain. And I like to say that the mind and body are a team. And more importantly, they are your team and and they are both in tune with each other. Your entire every cell in your being is listening to your thoughts. So when you're getting up and you're starting out with service like Colonel Wildman does, then, you know, that's a great way to start an attitude of gratitude. He's serving others and giving. And then I love it. I love how you said it. Service. Don't sweat. I was waiting for another S for the big three. That was a perfect way to start a day. And another gentleman I had on the on a show some time ago talked about any time he was about to start a bigger task and he knew it was coming the next day he would be sure to work out right before it. I said that gave him the energy to push through. And so I literally worked out right before the show because just like you said, although I want to be here, I want to be present. I want to be energetic. I didn't need much to get up for this show, to be honest, because of you. But I do it anyway, because that's, like you say, the commitment factor. So I appreciate you. I truly do for being who you are and the example you set for others. And and thank you for your service. I truly thank you for that.
I mean. Sixty eight combat missions, something that affects sixty five. Sixty five. Yeah that's a lot. And I can't imagine the stories you have. Oh my gosh. At some point we need to sit down and talk because it just enthralls me.
I love everything to do with the Air Force. My dad was in it. He, he was unfortunately didn't make it as a pilot. He had a like a fly on his eye during the physical he wanted to be. Who knows? I don't know if I'd be here if he if he became one. There's a reason for everything, Whoknows. And I just appreciate everything you're saying. And so absolutely. It's just like we're on rails together. It's it's amazing. Shelley says, thank you both for being here to help everyone. I am excited to share you with my daughter. Yes. Leaving a legacy. She will love to hear this advice as she is striving to attend the Air Force Academy next year. Fantastic.
I love it. Yeah, well, I graduated in ninety and when I got out of active duty, I stayed in the reserve and I recruited for the academy. We interviewed a lot of young kids. I don't like calling it recruiting because we always had so many. For every hundred that applied, only three got in now. So so this going to be really important for the young lady. You talked about that. You know, part of part of what I coach a lot of I love coaching the younger kids, young adults as well, you know, dealing with failure, dealing with challenge. When you go to the academy, you're with your peers and everybody was valedictorian or best in class or captain of the football team. And suddenly you feel like you're subjugated, you're no longer top of your game. And now you with other folks who are challenging you now you allow the folks to your left and right. And by the way, thirty three percent wash out. You don't want it to be you don't want it to be. You want it to be him or her. Right. And so you've got to be willing to be OK with being around other great people. This is another part of success when it comes to working out. My buddy Doug Grady took me out of work out a couple of weeks ago. Great guy. He challenged me, my buddy Mitch Weintraub, while I'm having lunch with tomorrow, I work out with him a bit. I've got my own gym. I go, I Google high intensity fitness. Chris something cosac coach cosac. I watch his videos. I do a lot, I, I try to mix it up but I don't always get. But when I'm working out I'm always not top of the top of the line with my fellow speakers. I'm not always that's on the softball field and we just made the playoffs as I was telling you about.
But I want to be and you should want to be around other people who are challenging you, humbling you, pushing you to get better and giving you the feedback that you may not want to hear but need to hear if you truly want to be better in life. And anybody who knows me knows that I seek out feedback. Tell me why I'm messing up, bruised by ego, bring it. I want to be better. And you know, I'm a new. Walkaround a fighter pilot, but I some people are intimidated, maybe intimidated by me, give me feedback. I want to get better. So you should seek it out and seek out a players who are going to refine your flight plan, make you uncomfortable, and that your young daughter, when she goes to the academy, she's got to be well and to be among the best and be humbled. And and you heard me say it before when I talk about Marty as well as any of my friends, to seek out those who can ask, you can ask for help and then then put in the work, you know, read the book and then apply it, read the read the diary, then apply it, you know, watch the fitness guru and then apply it, put it in your life, put in the sweat, put in the time, and then slowly and surely you're going to incrementally increase in your and your skill set in mindset. And now what I've coined a recent phrase called Heart Set.
I came up with this a couple of months ago because it's not just about mindset and skill set, it's our passion and our drive, what inspires us, what pushes us to sweat and go through the pain and humble ourselves with people. It's that passion and drive. And as we deal with covid-19. Issues and distractions and headwinds and fears that paralyze us, then you've got to double down and say what pushes you would get you out of bed. You talked about it before. You know what gets me out of bed? What what excites me? It's that heart. And you feel it, you know, when you when when you're doing it. And that's why I love doing these shows, why I love coaching people, because that's where I feel my gift is not necessarily speaking, being on a stage and doing my keynotes. It's one on one with a group just sharing calling B.S. when I have day with some of the folks hugging people, but also kicking butts because some of us need to get our butts kicked just as much as we need to be hugged. Some of us need people to tell us to improve our vector and our flight plan because they love us enough. To piss us off, you know what I'm saying?
I'm a man of just I was dying over here. I was like, this is amazing. I was just telling my team yesterday that, look, I could be here and blow wonderful roses up your skirts all day long and tell you how wonderful they are.
And you did such a great job. But how will that help you grow? Will that help you grow? It won't. It will give you more confidence. Maybe that will help. But if I if I don't give you those slight stretches or pieces of feedback to take you to the next level, those things that might, as you just said, well, they'll bruise their ego for just that micro second of time, then you're not going to improve. And this is how I was given feedback. I got to the point, just like you, I want more. If I don't get it, I feel like I'm hungry. I'm starving. I'm I'm without nutrients. Give me the feedback, the stuff that says where I can improve, not just what I've done. Great. Tell me where I can improve. That's the only way you can improve is when you give it to him straight. And the whole bottom line to the ego is throw that aside as far as you can. I mean, we all have it. It's built in. But the less you rely on it, the more successful you can be. Much quicker, in my humble opinion.
Yeah. And tact is important. And we all want to be appreciated. We want we want to be honored and appreciated things that we're doing. And and I think people. When they know that your intention is to truly help them and you do it in the right way and you build a relationship and you earned it enough, then that's when that's when movement happens, then that's when action happens. And some people just do not like feedback. They don't want to hear it unless they ask for it or seek it out. But some people, as you well know, may not want to hear our feedback. We have to be tactful in how we do it, because one of the things that I talk about in my book, Never Fly Solo, is that as a pilot of a jet, we're flying in this aircraft and we could see out front, not our wings, pretty easy, but we have a blind spot behind us.
We can't see what's going on behind us if we're getting shot at, if we're leaking fuel, if we're on fire. But somebody who's flying next to us. They can look over their shoulder and maybe see if A can fuel around fire, call out the missile, tell us to take action. And so a good friend, a good wingman, a trusted partner will check your blind spots, call out to you the threats you may see perhaps in your personal health and fitness, perhaps in your relationship that you don't see perhaps in how you can improve your business or whatever and then be courageous enough to tell you to take action, give you some great advice, and then you. Have to be honorable and get your ego out of the way, listen to him and let's face it, they're not always going to be right. Somebody may give you feedback. They may not be right. You need to filter that through your own paradigm, what you what you believe in as well. And sometimes you've got to trust and verify. If one person tells you you suck at something and that may not be right. But if two or three people do, hey, it's time for you to take some action if I want to. But not every coach, not every friend, not every feedback is correct. But, you know, if they know you and you build time earning that relationship, building it before you really need it. By sharing, connecting, helping, humbling yourself, now you're building up those team of wingman who are going to go all the way. I posted I posted something on on Twitter. This is funny. You know, I said shift your I meant to say shift your mindset on the mind body does a show with Brian Kelly with me tomorrow, yada, yada, yada. But I accidentally left out the f ing shift.
And my buddy Rod Sandin, Maximo, who's a real estate coach, an amazing guy. His book just came out. His book is right over there. He sent me a text, although actually, no, I was it was rather my buddy Alex, I think it was. No, it was Alex. I apologize, my Navy buddy. I apologize for that. He sent me a text. He's like, hey, did you see this? I'm like, what do you talk about? I didn't get it. I finally read it again. And I'm like ex Navy man for having my husband, my back. And he and so I went in and changed it. He went out of his way. He was watching my tweet. Obviously, I'm not going to get defensive because I didn't want to look like a wingnut with with a with a four letter word on my Twitter post. That's that's a winchman.
That's somebody who has your back and who cares about you and is willing to be inconvenienced to send me a text and a screenshot. Also, you probably wanted to make fun of me. A good wingman. Scott.
It's funny, I have one exactly like that.
In fact, he is the owner of the sponsor of this trip that you see scrolling across the bottom. And that's of the big insider secrets on the upper right of your screen. If you're watching the big insider secrets Dotcom, that's Jason Narced, a really wonderful friend of mine. He's he would do exactly that for me as well. And and we would have fun with it, too. I mean, I'm telling you, we're living parallel lives in so many ways. It's pretty uncanny and pretty cool. And, my goodness, the time is fine. So I can imagine that over time, you know, you went from being a successful combat fighter pilot to a successful entrepreneur, speaking from stage, changing lives, helping corporations, shifting into entrepreneur space and all of that. And I can only imagine along the way there were some bumps in the road, if you will. And if if something were to stick out to you is as prominent, what would you say had been some of the biggest just the one or one or two of the biggest, what you would call sacrifices you've made in that journey to get where you are today?
Well, some people don't know part of my story, which I've been sharing more and more now as we deal with this combat covid is three years into my 11 year flying career doing what I love more than anything else, which is flying jets. I almost died in a scuba diving accident. Thirty five feet under the water mask, separated, inhaled water, freaked out panic attack. Just the worst experience of my life. I thought I was going to die. And anybody watching this or listening because ever had a panic attack, you know that that's not the most fun to have. And essentially, no combat mission could come close to how I felt the fear and panic of that day. So a few days later, I'm back in the cockpit flying a training mission. And I had basically the same panic attack as flying through the weather. I couldn't see the sun, couldn't see the ground. I was socked in the clouds and. Thought there was something wrong with my oxygen as I became hypoxic and dizzy and freaked out, but I realized there was everything wrong with me and had the same panic attack that I had just a few days prior. Instead of being thirty five feet out of the water now. Thirty five thousand feet in the air. Oh, claustrophobia. I'm like, I got to get the heck out of this plane. Probably not the best thing for a pilot to have. Right brain. And so.
That was a significant emotional event. It was PTSD that I had from just a few days prior, but it manifests itself in the jet. It was so miserable for the next eight years of my flying career.
Every single time I stepped into this plane, I had to deal with this phobia and fear of having that panic attack, which would often rear its ugly head. At the unwarranted time, usually at night, of flying in a weather and I would fight it, fight it, fight it. Long story short, I broke free, but it never impacted my ability to actually do the job. But it created extreme anxiety and fear in my life that forced me to truly evaluate. And double down on why I was getting in that jet and suffering through this experience that I used to love, but now it was like, man, how am I going to do this? And so. It got easier and easier. I fought through it, I read books, got a little private counseling from my friends, I didn't share with anybody else. I couldn't tell my buddies that I had this fear was my little dark secret, my skeleton.
Perhaps folks watching or listening to this may understand. But I found the more I got used to the fear and flying through that anxiety and panic. The more I realized I had the control. The more courageous I became, the more confident I I started to live and not very visible bleeding scar turned into just a little minimal scar that never went away. Our fears never go away. Our claustrophobia is our doubts, our fears and anxieties and panics, our addictions. They don't go away. They're often just a little Scott. No one doubling down on the purpose, you know, a lot of it was just my ego. I did not want to quit. I didn't want to give up on my dream. I didn't want to have to look back on my life and tell my son, hey, your dad had a dream to fly jet somebody. As soon as things got tough, he quit staying the Jets on face your fears. That's where leaders are made. I wanted to emulate that, be the example. That's why I feel I've earned it to be his coach and coach others because I know what it's like to struggle and be depressed. Wings in my hand ready to quit and then popping them back on my damn chest, saying I'm not going to give you one more day, got easier and easier. But here is the thing that we could kind of go full circle here that truly helped me. It's when I go on those missions. Either as an instructor with a student in my jet or next to me.
On a five or six hour night combat mission in Iraq, leading another wing man, a wing man to battle, as soon as I got fearful, as soon as I got into my head and started focusing on poor old me. I focused on that. Focused on the student, focused on checking their six, their blind spots find where the enemy was, making sure I was supporting them, whatever I was going to do, distracting myself from myself through service, through getting through getting out of myself and helping others. Which made me realize. That excellence is a byproduct of service, right, when you're truly helping and no longer it's no longer about you, you don't give a crap about your feelings and your anxieties. It's all about your wingman. And when you're in battle, folks, when your life is on the line and you have that trusted partner who truly has your best interests, there's nothing better. And it feels better to give it than to receive it. That's the. And so.
I became slightly to the core, I got a one on one on the wall slightly the quarter January to March, two thousand and two thousand four, I got out of the service the part of the year, No. One out of three and eight pilots. And San Antonio, they didn't know this guy named Walter Waldman was dealing with this claustrophobia and panic attacks. They didn't know, just like they don't know the crap that you're going through your life, the struggles and addictions and passions and insecurities that you fight every single day, we get in that cockpit and and keep pushing up the throttle and serving. And so that's that's what I want you to really think about. You know, the struggle, the character, the scars of character that are emblazoned on a spirit. Help us be better.
The humbling. They make us better.
But that's where life happens in those fearful moments as we deal with these issues. And as your business starts dropping and as you wonder if you're going to survive covid, if you're going to get back in the cockpit again and reached new heights in your business or whatever, or that friend of yours who may be struggling. Now it's time for you to say, who can I help? I may be suffering right now, but if I distract myself by helping somebody else out authentically and with credibility, don't give them bad advice. You know, I was a flight lead because I earned it. I earned that right. I went through the training just like you need to earn those wings. Stay in the jet, suffer through it, suffer honorably, take the road less traveled, choose to fly every day, even though you may have that panic attack and you'll be a much not just a better business leader, not just a better community member in a community that needs leaders, but you'll be a better human being.
That's truly what life is all about.
I cannot wait till we're able to see you back on stage again, I could envision you doing that entire thing right there. I'm like goosebumps everywhere. That was phenomenal. And I we were separated at birth because I went through panic attacks as well. It's crazy when you started saying, like, what, are you kidding me? And they would just crop up at the weirdest points of time in the weirdest locations and the same thing. It was all in the head and it took it took years for me to finally quell it and get it out of my system and now it's gone. But I'd be standing in line at a bank, you know, back in the day when we actually went to banks. This is going back some time and just just stand there.
Nothing happened and absolutely nothing. All of a sudden it hits. I'm like, what is going on? Why? Why now? I hear what I'm like analyzing the environment and going through the swirling through what I'm going through.
And like you said, it was about concentrating outside of what was happening at that moment. And I got to the point where I could control it and now it just doesn't happen. It just doesn't happen anymore. And I love I say scars and all that, and I love the great thing about a scar is that shows that you've healed. Yeah, right. You've overcome, you've got injured, but now it's healed and you can move forward. And so there's so many wonderful understory to everything you just said that was just going this is this is juice. I love this life.
I think the more we get older, the more we realize that, you know, our failures, call it the hero's journey or whatever. And I just really, you know.
I've just been really getting into this story a lot more because I find that it's driving me more, you know, when I really think about that.
I went on a hike in Oregon mountains eastern Oregon around two years ago with some military folks and some civilians. It was called The Crucible.
My buddy Jan is a Green Beret, and I had a panic attack for the first time in years going up that damn mountain. I'm like, what the heck is going on here? Which just going up this little mountain, I was too in my head.
I was too egotistical. I didn't want to embarrass myself in front of the folks. And so I put this undue pressure on myself. You see, when you're going away from safety, you going away from the base higher and higher and higher, away from safety. That's what it was psychologically for me when it first happened. I was going lower, lower, lower, away from safety, away from security, away from home. And so panic is really I think I learned it's about control. It's about comfort. It's about. Being OK or panic happens when you're not OK with where you're at and when we mature and are OK where we're at, where we're separated from our ego, where we don't have to win, we don't have to get the standing ovation. We don't have to close the deal. We don't have to be freaking liked.
I'm just going to be me and I'm OK with that. And so when you disconnect yourself from the outcome, it forces you to be present. And when you present. You no longer really afraid of messing up, you're just worried about sharing your story and helping people out and not every not helping everybody, not serving everybody, that maybe about one or two or 10 people or 100 hundred in a crowd of a thousand whoever. That you're going to truly shift and transform and help you and hopefully your message, whatever it is, or the job that you do as a financial adviser, as a safety professional, as a digital consultant or as a landscaper, is going to impact as many lives as you can. That's that's truly what we're trying to do here. The last thing I want to say, because I know we've got to finish up, is resilience. Is learned through those tough times, is staying in the jet of your life, knowing this turbulence and fear, and as you're going through that panic attack and watch the missile to be shot at, you staying in the jet and staying focused on the job, it's not just about calling a friend or meditating or taking a walk outside where you can bounce back.
True, resilient people are willing to put themselves through the crucible of life, to go through that panic and stay there just like a marathon runner or a fitness guru is just staying in the pain. They may not be in better shape than you or I, but they know how to stay in that zone, suffering through the pain of working through it. And that's what leaders do. We stay in that pain and stay on target and stay focused. Resilience is a byproduct of that.
So suffer well through this covered crisis, suffer well through this pain and insecurities that we're all going through because it's going to build our character, make us stronger and make us better leaders and human beings.
Amen. It's going to build many, many champions. Hey, before we go, though, we've got a couple of things left to do ironed out here, Colonel Walton. And that is I'd like to ask this one final question of every person I have on this show. And it's a telling, wonderful, amazing question. We've actually skirted across it several times tonight just by happenstance. And we have a couple of gifts to give away. And so we want to take care of that. So before that final question, I wanted to let everybody know how they can win a five night stay at a five star luxury resort, compliments of our pals at the Big Insider Secrets Dotcom. So you have both our permission right now to momentarily take your gaze away from the screen, take out your cell phone, bring up your messaging app and do the following where you would actually put in the name of the person you're going to text instead type in a phone number. And that is three one four six six five one seven six seven. And then go down to that area where you would type in the actual message, you know, where the emojis and all that thing. But no emojis, two words separated by a hyphen or a dash.
It's peak PIAC dash vacation, peak vacation, peak dash vacation.
So go to three one four six six five one seven, six, seven, and go ahead and type that in and then be sure to monitor that because you will get follow up messages and instructions to formally be entered to win. And I hope you win this. So enter that now and then. A little birdie told me that we have something else phenomenal for you, and it's compliments of Colonel Wildman himself. So what I would like to do is just turn it over to you real quick, if you don't mind, and have you explain what it is that are wonderful attendees are going to receive.
So so if you guys like what you heard today and want to kind of get a couple more videos on peak performance and courage and accountability and being a better wingman, I've got a program called ACE stands for Accountability, Commitment and Execution. And if you go to there he is actually go if you can. Why am I on the screen? There we go. If you go to your wingman dot for Wigram are like Mister, your wingman dot com programmer, you can put your name and email address and I'll send you five videos. You'll get access that will be sent to you with a little worksheet afterwards and you'll just get a little more content and juice to fire yourself up, share it with your team, share it with your family, your kids, and maybe an unsuspected entrepreneur who needs some motivation. So you're going with that approach smart. And then also I'm going to give away my audio book for free. That's a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. Where is it up here? If you go to your Remen dot com, where is it? Is it there on the screen? Yet the only thing that forward slash fast and fast never fly solo. You'll get my free audio book to download share with your friends and family, especially your daughter, who's going to the academy. She'd love to read that. I share some academy stories there and there's my LinkedIn, my LinkedIn app. If you want to put your phone on that and connect with me on LinkedIn and wall to wall. So a couple little goodies to take away and your wingman that comes how you can find me and other than that, take action and enjoy. That's that's all I really got for that. And I know we're going to finish up and let everybody get on their way here. It's nine thirty three East Coast time.
Yes, sir. Thank you so much for that. Oh, my gosh. I'm going to grab that book immediately. All right.
So this this question is it's a doozy. It's awesome. It's a little bit personal, but it's also phenomenal. And the only reason it's personal is because there's no such thing as a wrong answer. The only correct answer is your answer. That's it. It's that simple. And so I'm going to close the show with an amazing, amazing question for you, Colonel Woltman, are you ready?
Yes, he born ready. Of course he's ready. All right, Waldo Waldman. How do you define success?
Being content. With who you are and where you're at.
Nothing to prove.
Nothing to prove just being good where you are.
You know, success is a never ending horizon, right, if you look out at the horizon and coach strategic coach Dan Sullivan said this when I when I went to his. Coaching session about about the horizon, the never ending horizon of success, you're never going to get there, but success is being OK with the journey, OK with the battle and being OK with being who you are and not having to prove anything to anybody.
To me, that's what success is all about. And and then just constantly being in flow with improving and knowing that the way you can improve may not necessarily.
Bring in more money, but maybe bring you more joy.
And that's kind of where I'm getting at as a guy that's getting older.
Nothing to prove being good at where you're at. To me, that's a success.
I absolutely love it. One of the most interesting things to me, I've done over 120 of these shows, Colonel, and No two yet have answered it the same exact way. That's what makes it personal. The other interesting thing is no one had no one's answer has been anything about money, money centric, like when I get my next 20 million or whatever. It's always been about serving about things like you said, about being OK in your own skin. And and just I love this. And if I can get your permission, I'll ask later. I'm compiling a book. How do you define success with all of these wonderful quotes from you and previous guests as well to make it a collaborative and put your name out there even more? Because I can't wait to help to help spread the word and let us know when or let me know when you launch. I want to help. With with nothing, I'm not asking for affiliate link, nothing in return, let me know and I'm going to send it out as far and wide as I can. So I appreciate you, my friend. That is it for tonight's show. And I appreciate everyone for sticking with us live until the end. And on behalf of Colonel Waldo Waldman, The Amazing Man. Thank you again, my friend, for coming on. I am Brian Kilgore, host of The Mind Body Business Show. And until next week, we will see you again. Be blessed, everyone. Bye bye for now. Say.
