So right now what I'm doing is, you know, helping others. So that's one thing that it's actually very important for me because you hear a lot of people saying, oh, man, I want to give back and blah, blah, blah. And sometimes it's B.S., you know, people just want to sell you something.
But sometimes you genuinely want to help people. And me, right now, there are people around me that I really want to help, just because they're good people. And I like to do good things for good people. If you see someone who's actually giving their best. And being very passionate about what they do and very committed and everything. I like to reward these people by helping them anywhere I can.
So I might not be the expert in whatever they're doing, but I can come up with something or I might know someone who can help or I might have a suggestion based on something I've heard. I can point them in the right direction or something like this. But it is something that's very dear to me.
You know, if someone is putting in the effort, because I think people can achieve way more than they think. But only a handful of people are actually going to be committed enough to go through the hardship and do it. It's something that I admire in people.
And it's very important not to forget the people who helped you before. So there are two things that I like to, you know, to do. And if my time comes I'll be able to say, you know what? I'm kind of proud of these two things.
The first thing is being able to help people without expecting anything specific in return. That's an implicit deal that I have with my buddies. They do understand this concept of, dude, I can help you today, you know, regardless what it is, I help you. I'm not asking for anything in return because I know one day you'll help me if I need something, I know you'll be there regardless what it is, you know.
And my closest friends are people who actually think like me. And again, I don't know if it's something about education, the way we were brought up or something. Some people helped me when they didn't have to. They didn't ask anything in return. And the minute I could help them, if they needed something, then I was here.
But I do believe that if you do good things, other people will do good things for you. If you're a jerk, nobody wants to help you.
How anybody can build an army of faithful soldiers.
I have a buddy, and the first time I met the guy, he had just bought some brownies. So the brownies were super good. So the dude rocks to this house. I was there because I knew people in the house. Right.
So he shows up and he sees me there. He has never seen me ever. He doesn't know who I am. And the dude comes up and says, Oh, dude, you want some brownie? And I'm like, well, who's this guy? And I'm like, Yeah, well, who am I to say no? Right. So I try one. The spread is good. And I thought you don't know me, right? You don't know me. Why are you giving me half your brownie?
And then later it was my turn. He needed help for something and I helped him out. He was like, oh, man, you don't have to. It's big and stuff. I'm like, dude, maybe you don't remember the first time we met, but the first time we met, you gave me half your brownie. You give me some of your brownies, like, yeah, but it's just a brownie man. And I'm like, dude, I don't care if it’s just a brownie.
If the situation was that you had something and you gave me a piece of it, I and I don't care if it was a million dollars, the concept is you had something you had no obligation to give it to me. You didn't know me and you still gave it to me.
And I think that it's something that could, you know, make the world a better place.
