Semi-deep thoughts from inside the wrestling room.

On this episode Russell talks about how trying to teach his boys to love wrestling the way he does has been met with a lot of resistance, but why he isn’t giving up. Here are some of the cool things in this episode:

-Why even though Russell’s boys have not really enjoyed wrestling so far, it’s important to push forward anyway.

-Why anything new that you try to do brings resistance, but if it’s important you need to continue to move forward.

-And how getting his boys to do wrestling is similar to starting something new with your business. You need to be passionate about it if it’s going to work.

So listen here to find out why you should continue to push forward in the new things you try, despite the initial resistance you will get.

what’s up everybody this russell brunson welcome to a special resting room edition of the marketing secrets podcast so the big question is this power on Brewers like us who didn’t cheat and take on venture capital we’re spending money from our own pockets how do we mark it in a way the lets us get our products and our services and the things that you believe in out to the world and yet still remain profitable that is the question in this podcast we’ll give you the answers my name is Russell Brunson and welcome to marketing secrets everyone so I’m here in the resting right my home why is taking it to my detached garage but those who haven’t seen it for watching the video version this is what it all looks like is my little piece of heaven here on earth and I love it so but today was the very first ever wrestling practice I did with my kids and their friends here this is the t-shirts we made because a little eccentric and can’t have a practice on a t-shirt so we made t-shirts and everything but it’s fun we had I think 12 or so boys here and for my little kids aged up to the older kids and it was a it was fun but it was hard it was anyway he’s interesting my obviously wrestling’s with my passion and my whole life one my kids Amina for some reason like they just have so much resistance to it it’s like ah I remember this year my 12 year old twins started wrestling finally and very first day they went to practice I know practice started yeah I thought of starting the next day and they came home both in tears like we hate wrestling we’re never going back and I was like oh man so I called the coach up I got to know him and he said well you should come out coach then I’m like dang it so I decided to be a assistant coach I spent the next two months two and a half months or so every day wrestling practice which ended being amazing how with the kids but it was hard cuz I reached brigly week where dad can quit yet I watched my kids go they get beat up and just like how am i by doing the right thing like part is like you got to make your kids be tough and force them to do hard things but a part of me is like man they’re not having any fun I’ve had dad for doing it anyway this is the emotional turmoil that goes through my head as I’m trying to learn this whole parenting game which is way harder than I thought was gonna be and making millions of dollars is way easier than raising kids but anyway they finished the season they had a good time and by the end of it Bowen who was the one who the most told me that wrestling’s his favorite sports I’m like yes and then Dallin he got injured pretty bad I think I did a podcast on that but he liked it as well so finally I’ve been trying to like you know season’s over like we got a wrestling in our backyard let’s like get a bunch of kids together so but trying forever and finally today was the first day we made it happen and I had my little boy ADA now here too it’s with his friends and man it was crazy cuz it’s just it’s it’s something just as you start new things again you forget like how much resistance normally comes when you start something new like I’ve been trying honestly for two years just to have this wrestling practice and then like six months ago I printed these sure so I could do this weekend and then we didn’t do it again and finally happened today and then today a man like last night Aidan my 7 year old go to bed like I can’t like I can’t go to bed now because it was like so it still weighs like 10 o’clock mate cuz we gotta get four rustling I know one wrestled the morning he’s like I got I have a homework and I have all these things and make him homework your first grade dude he’s the gap five hours of homework I can’t do resting up to a homework in the morning like whatever like just fighting this morning he was fighting I was fighting they’d want to come and then like they came out and the boys were fighting and like twins were fighting and like on the left his friends show up which was good and then we did practice and then practice wait I guess is funny in your head you’re like okay they’re all gonna listen weirdest things we’re gonna get through stuff and I was hardly an odd number of people so I’d help like be a drill partner plus coach but trying to coach everyone Plus anyway oh it was tough and there’s so much resistance and then in the end my boys are fighting they’re crying and I tried these little wrestle off stick his wrestling and – my boys are crying by the end of it say at her and like so much resistance so anyway the the reason I making this video is twofold number one I think someday it’ll be fun to come back here if I can get these kids past the initial pain of a new thing be fun to like show them this may this is date number one the practice guys this is how beat up your dad was not tired how like how bad I wanted to quit already because then you start anything new the initial resistance is insane it’s like you have to push this boulder up a hill and if you’re not insanely passionate and obsessive about what you do you’re not gonna make it up that hill there’s just too much resistance that happens initially as people tell me I’m sort of business kind of just like I’m not passionate anything I just just like do you know they just wanna do something like hey you can but there’s a lot of resistance that goes and starting a business and you gotta push this Boulder up the hill if you don’t love it ma’am you’re gonna you’re gonna yeah I can write it love rustling you’d love this tie spending time with the boys like I’d quit after today that today was as much fun as it was it was kind of horrible thank you so hard then anyway it was not horrible it was good it was just not the picture I painted my head you know and I think a lot of times we get into business we have this picture in our head of like hey this was gonna look like some amazing did you get in there like huh nobody wants my stuff Wow traffic is expensive Wow problem problem problem problem if you’re not insanely passionate initially the resistance will stop you and I’ll bury you before you ever get there so as I’m trying a new thing a new chapter in my life and being a coach of my kids which and I’m going through that resistance I just wanted to share with you guys cuz we all go through it and you know mostly as listening to this podcast here you’re here because you want to learn marketing in business and scaling and things like that and I just um you’ll probably think about hearing me talk about wrestling coaching but it’s the same principle anything new we start we will be immediately met with tons of opposition and resistance no matter what it is especially if it’s a good thing the better it is the more opposition resistance you will get and that’s a sign that you’re doing the right things and so that said I’m done I’m gonna go sit in the hot tub I’m gonna my stuff I have stuff he knows I’m kind of sick but I’m just gonna celebrate today act like it was everything I dreamt of the more so I can forget about some of the the hurdles that way we’ll be able to keep moving forward and keep doing this and I just know that I do this consistently for a month for six months for a year my kids will be good they’re gonna like it I’m gonna like it will have wrestlers that know what they’re doing and practices become fun and it’ll be awesome but it all starts somewhere so today was my starting name and wherever it is you’re starting at or wherever you are meeting the most opposition right now hopefully this gives you a little bit of hope and faith and the energy you need to push through that opposition because the amazing stuffs around the other side we’ve got to get there it’s happened so many times in my life in so many different areas and I’m excited for to happen out here the wrestling stuff long as the kids don’t quit so there’s my there’s my job it’s harder like witness yourself yet you don’t have to quit the kids right we don’t like this it’s harder but they’re liking it more it’s getting better so alright guys that said I’m gonna go and maybe take a nap or so I don’t even know but whatever you’re doing break that resistance I’ll talk to you soon everybody would you like to see behind the scenes of what we’re actually doing each day to grow our
