Transforming weakness into power.

Tom talks about humilating experience in High School Band by having to push the bass guitarists amplifier cart while marching.  The biggest strongest trees always get uprooted during a storm, where as a palm tree or willow bend with the storm and survive. Brazilian jiu jitsu uses this technique on the mat to constantly fight to a verbal submission in order to get better and better at the sport. Sticking it to the man. Why Storm Troopers can not hit the broad side of a barn with their blasters.

This laws of power teach us how to play the game and also teach us how not to be played. The history of smoke being blowed up your butt saying based on an old medical treatment. John does not believe Toms story about the origins of the story. Avoiding the big brand barber shop and patronize local business. The story from the book shows how con men in the 1800's suckered some of the most intellectual men of the time by salting mines with diamonds and gems. How to avoid being the sucker and how to use this law to your advantage. 

Defining yourself as an authority. Does starting a podcast make you an instant expert in your field? How the media creates hype when a hurricane or tropical storm approaches South Florida. Actionable items, read the fine print and do the research. What are systems and how do they apply to life and business. Question everything including laws and rules. Know who your dealinig with and do not be an open book in order to protect yourself. Do your own thinking.

It is the fool that always rushes in to take sides, remain neutral. It is a delicate to keep this law from happening. Politicians are adept in the use of this law. How Donald Trump is using this law to his advantage. A fable about losing your ass, the old man, young boy and Jackass. Put your quarrels aside and avoid getting caught up in the hot button isssues and focus on getting our government to address the issues that pertain to all citizens. Queen Mary retains her virginity for the sake of England. Tell your boss to just shove it, a nice goal to aspire to. George Washington denies help from France during the American Revolution to avoid any strings attached and to gain the respect of the world. RIP Wayne Dyer who passed away on the evening before we recorded this podcast.
