  • OF SOLACE.
  • 00:00:02.230 --> 00:00:04.190
  • EVEN WHEN I WROTE THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR, ONE OF
  • 00:00:04.210 --> 00:00:07.240
  • THE THINGS YOU HAVE TO DO IS FIND INNER PEACE WHEN
  • 00:00:07.260 --> 00:00:09.140
  • THE WORLD IS IN CHAOS IN THE WORLD AROUND YOU.
  • 00:00:09.160 --> 00:00:11.190
  • AND SHOOTING BASKETS IS ONE OF THE WAYS THAT I
  • 00:00:11.210 --> 00:00:13.080
  • FIND PEACE IN MY LIFE OWN.
  • 00:00:13.100 --> 00:00:15.030
  • AND I TELL THIS PRETTY RIDICULOUS STORY ABOUT
  • 00:00:15.050 --> 00:00:17.120
  • HAVING BEEN ON THE ROAD MAYBE A WEEK OR TWO.
  • 00:00:17.140 --> 00:00:20.010
  • I WAS GONE.
  • 00:00:20.030 --> 00:00:21.110
  • I WAS TRAVELING AROUND THE WORLD, AND I CAME
  • 00:00:21.130 --> 00:00:23.030
  • HOME AND I SAID TO MY WIFE KIM, I SAID, HI.
  • 00:00:23.050 --> 00:00:25.200
  • AND SHE SAID, TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE.
  • 00:00:25.220 --> 00:00:28.070
  • AND WHEN SHE SAID TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE, IT KIND
  • 00:00:28.090 --> 00:00:29.280
  • OF IRRITATED ME.
  • 00:00:30.000 --> 00:00:31.130
  • AND I SAID HEY, I JUST WALKED IN THE DOOR.
  • 00:00:31.150 --> 00:00:32.280
  • I'M REALLY TIRED.
  • 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:34.010
  • CAN YOU JUST LET ME REST?
  • 00:00:34.030 --> 00:00:35.040
  • SHE FELT TERRIBLE.
  • 00:00:35.060 --> 00:00:36.070
  • SHE SAID, I'M SO SORRY.
  • 00:00:36.090 --> 00:00:37.070
  • JUST SIT DOWN.
  • 00:00:37.090 --> 00:00:38.050
  • TAKE A BREAK.
  • 00:00:38.070 --> 00:00:39.130
  • SO I SAT DOWN, AND THEN I GOT A PHONE CALL FROM ONE
  • 00:00:39.150 --> 00:00:41.250
  • OF MY GUYS, AND HE SAID, HEY, BRO.
  • 00:00:41.270 --> 00:00:44.040
  • I HEARD YOUR HOME.
  • 00:00:44.060 --> 00:00:45.180
  • WE GOT A BASKETBALL COURT.
  • 00:00:45.200 --> 00:00:47.000
  • YOU WANT TO COME PLAY BALL?
  • 00:00:47.020 --> 00:00:48.250
  • SO I GOT UP AND I WALKED OVER TO MY WIFE, AND I
  • 00:00:48.270 --> 00:00:49.290
  • SAID HEY, HONEY.
  • 00:00:50.010 --> 00:00:52.050
  • AFTER I TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE. [LAUGHTER] I
  • 00:00:52.070 --> 00:00:55.080
  • WAS WONDERING IF IT WOULD BE OKAY TO PLAY BALL WITH
  • 00:00:55.100 --> 00:00:56.220
  • THE GUYS.
  • 00:00:56.240 --> 00:00:58.040
  • AND SHE SAID, OH NO. NO. NO.
  • 00:00:58.060 --> 00:01:00.100
  • YOU SHOULD NOT GO OUT WITH THE GUYS AND
  • 00:01:00.120 --> 00:01:02.100
  • PLAY BASKETBALL.
  • 00:01:02.120 --> 00:01:03.190
  • YOU'RE TOO TIRED.
  • 00:01:03.210 --> 00:01:04.250
  • YOU NEED TO STAY HOME AND REST.
  • 00:01:04.270 --> 00:01:06.150
  • I SAID NO, IT'S CRAZY.
  • 00:01:06.170 --> 00:01:08.160
  • I HAVE ALL THIS ENERGY NOW.
  • 00:01:08.180 --> 00:01:10.190
  • [LAUGHTER] AND YOU KNOW, THE FUNNY THING IS
  • 00:01:10.210 --> 00:01:12.240
  • I WASN'T LYING.
  • 00:01:12.260 --> 00:01:14.090
  • WHEN SHE ASKED ME TO TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE I WAS
  • 00:01:14.110 --> 00:01:16.000
  • TIRED, AND WHEN THE GUYS ASKED ME TO PLAY
  • 00:01:16.020 --> 00:01:17.130
  • BASKETBALL I WAS RE ENERGIZED.
  • 00:01:17.150 --> 00:01:19.260
  • AND I JUST THINK IT'S A REALITY OF LIFE THAT
  • 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:23.130
  • THERE ARE THINGS IN LIFE THAT COST US ENERGY AND
  • 00:01:23.150 --> 00:01:25.010
  • THINGS IN LIFE THAT GIVE US ENERGY.
  • 00:01:25.030 --> 00:01:26.210
  • AND ONE OF THE CODES IN THE BOOK IS TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:01:26.230 --> 00:01:29.010
  • WHAT GIVES YOU STRENGTH, WHERE YOUR STRENGTH COMES
  • 00:01:29.030 --> 00:01:30.090
  • FROM, TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE RECHARGING YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:01:30.110 --> 00:01:35.170
  • - THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR I THINK IS IT ERWIN MCMANUS'
  • 00:01:35.190 --> 00:01:39.030
  • MOST INTENSE BOOK MAYBE EVER.
  • 00:01:39.050 --> 00:01:44.140
  • IT'S THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR.
  • 00:01:44.160 --> 00:01:46.040
  • IT'S ERWIN MCMANUS.
  • 00:01:46.060 --> 00:01:47.220
  • IT'S PRAISE.
  • 00:01:47.240 --> 00:01:48.250
  • AND IT'S RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:01:48.270 --> 00:01:50.270
  • - GOOD TO BE HERE.
  • 00:01:50.290 --> 00:01:52.000
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:01:52.020 --> 00:01:58.020
  • - TONIGHT ON PRAISE.
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:02:00.030
  • FROM LOS ANGELES, BEST- SELLING STORY TELLER AND
  • 00:02:00.050 --> 00:02:03.040
  • LEAD PASTOR OF MOSAIC, ERWIN MCMANUS!
  • 00:02:03.060 --> 00:02:06.060
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:02:06.080 --> 00:02:10.000
  • AND NOW MATT AND LAURIE CROUCH.
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:14.090
  • - MATT CROUCH: EVERYONE PLEASE MAKE WELCOME
  • 00:02:14.110 --> 00:02:15.180
  • ERWIN MCMANUS.
  • 00:02:15.200 --> 00:02:18.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:02:18.100 --> 00:02:20.200
  • IT IS THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR.
  • 00:02:20.220 --> 00:02:23.270
  • COME ON NOW.
  • 00:02:23.290 --> 00:02:25.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:02:25.040 --> 00:02:27.260
  • WE'VE GOT A SPARTAN HELMET AND EVERYTHING.
  • 00:02:27.280 --> 00:02:31.200
  • - ERWIN: THAT'S PRETTY EPIC.
  • 00:02:31.220 --> 00:02:33.150
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:02:33.170 --> 00:02:35.290
  • SO ERWIN, WHY WERE WE PLAYING BASKETBALL?
  • 00:02:36.010 --> 00:02:38.050
  • WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT BACK OVER THERE?
  • 00:02:38.070 --> 00:02:42.000
  • WHY WERE WE SHOOTING BASKETS BEFORE
  • 00:02:42.020 --> 00:02:43.170
  • THIS BROADCAST?
  • 00:02:43.190 --> 00:02:45.040
  • - WELL, YOU NOTED THAT IN THE BOOK I USE
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:46.130
  • BASKETBALL A LOT IN THE STORY TELLING PROCESS.
  • 00:02:46.150 --> 00:02:48.200
  • AND SOME OF IT IS I LOVE BASKETBALL, AND EVERYONE
  • 00:02:48.220 --> 00:02:52.180
  • NEEDS TO FIND THAT ARE PLACE OF SOLACE, THAT
  • 00:02:52.200 --> 00:02:53.260
  • PLACE WHERE THEY CAN RECHARGE AND CONNECT TO
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:55.250
  • THE INNER SELF.
  • 00:02:55.270 --> 00:02:57.220
  • AND BASKETBALL IS THAT PLACE FOR ME.
  • 00:02:57.240 --> 00:02:59.210
  • I THINK THE HUGE PART IS I HAVE SO MANY THINGS
  • 00:02:59.230 --> 00:03:02.000
  • GOING NONE MY LIFE, CHAOS AND DISTRACTIONS AND SO
  • 00:03:02.020 --> 00:03:04.220
  • MUCH PRESSURE THAT YOU CAN FEEL OVERWHELMED BY
  • 00:03:04.240 --> 00:03:07.030
  • THE STRESS.
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:08.120
  • AND WHEN I'M PLAYING BALL I'M JUST FOCUSED ON THE
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:11.040
  • GAME, AND SPECIALLY WHEN I'M COMPETING.
  • 00:03:11.060 --> 00:03:12.290
  • SO I BLOCK OUT EVERYTHING AROUND ME.
  • 00:03:13.010 --> 00:03:14.280
  • IN THE BOOK I TALK ABOUT HOW WHEN I HAD CANCER I
  • 00:03:15.000 --> 00:03:18.020
  • HAD A SIX AND A HALF HOUR SURGERY, AND ONE OF THE
  • 00:03:18.040 --> 00:03:21.060
  • THINGS I DID IS I ASKED THE SURGEON WHAT'S THE
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:23.130
  • WORLD RECORD FOR A SIX AND A HALF HOUR SURGERY
  • 00:03:23.150 --> 00:03:25.080
  • AND THEN TO PLAY BASKETBALL?
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:27.240
  • AND HE SAID, THERE IS NO WORLD'S RECORD.
  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:29.280
  • I SAID WELL, GOOD.
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:31.050
  • IT'S GOING TO BE MINE.
  • 00:03:31.070 --> 00:03:32.210
  • SO I WALKED OUT OF THAT HOSPITAL WITH A CATHETER
  • 00:03:32.230 --> 00:03:35.110
  • SO I DIDN'T LOOK I'D BE PLAYING BASKETBALL
  • 00:03:35.130 --> 00:03:37.010
  • VERY SOON.
  • 00:03:37.030 --> 00:03:38.270
  • BUT LITERALLY THREE WEEKS AFTER HAVING THAT SURGERY
  • 00:03:38.290 --> 00:03:41.150
  • I SNUCK OUT OF THE HOUSE BECAUSE MY WIFE DID NOT
  • 00:03:41.170 --> 00:03:43.160
  • WANT ME TO WALK OUTSIDE, AND I TOLD HER I WAS
  • 00:03:43.180 --> 00:03:46.090
  • GOING TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE, GO HANG OUT WITH
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:48.070
  • SOME OF THE GUYS.
  • 00:03:48.090 --> 00:03:49.270
  • WE RENTED THE GYM, AND PLAYED TWO HOURS
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:51.020
  • OF BASKETBALL.
  • 00:03:51.040 --> 00:03:52.220
  • AND I HAD SIX HOLES THAT WERE GLUED TOGETHER, AND
  • 00:03:52.240 --> 00:03:53.290
  • THEY WERE BLEEDING.
  • 00:03:54.010 --> 00:03:55.250
  • AND THE GLUE WASN'T HOLDING.
  • 00:03:55.270 --> 00:03:57.270
  • WELL, BUT MY THREE POINT SHOT WAS DROPPING SO I
  • 00:03:57.290 --> 00:04:00.020
  • KNEW IT WAS A GOOD THING THAT GOD WAS WITH ME.
  • 00:04:00.040 --> 00:04:02.230
  • AND I THINK A HUGE PART OF IT FOR ME WAS I JUST
  • 00:04:02.250 --> 00:04:06.030
  • LEARNED OVER A LIFETIME THAT THERE ARE THINGS
  • 00:04:06.050 --> 00:04:08.140
  • THAT COST YOU ENERGY AND THINGS THAT REPLENISH
  • 00:04:08.160 --> 00:04:10.120
  • YOUR ENERGY.
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:12.030
  • AND I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT, AND ONE OF THE
  • 00:04:12.050 --> 00:04:15.080
  • REASONS I WRITE THIS BOOK, THE WAY OF THE
  • 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:17.060
  • WARRIOR, IS THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE ARE TAKING THE
  • 00:04:17.080 --> 00:04:19.150
  • NECESSARY TIME TO DEAL WITH THEIR INNER WORLD.
  • 00:04:19.170 --> 00:04:21.060
  • THEY'RE FIGHTING AND STRUGGLING AND JUST
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:23.100
  • TRYING TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE DAY.
  • 00:04:23.120 --> 00:04:26.170
  • AND I TALKED TO ENDLESS NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:04:26.190 --> 00:04:29.010
  • STRUGGLING WITH STRESS, PANIC ATTACKS, ANXIETY
  • 00:04:29.030 --> 00:04:30.120
  • ATTACKS, 24 YEAR OLDS THAT ARE MEDICATED
  • 00:04:30.140 --> 00:04:34.040
  • BECAUSE THEY CAN'T DEAL WITH THE DEPRESSION
  • 00:04:34.060 --> 00:04:36.200
  • THEY'RE FEELING OR ARE MEDICATED BECAUSE THEY
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:38.230
  • FEEL OVERWHELMED BY STRESS.
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:40.270
  • AND I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER WRITTEN A BOOK THAT
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:43.020
  • WAS MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE MOMENT IT
  • 00:04:43.040 --> 00:04:44.260
  • WAS WRITTEN.
  • 00:04:44.280 --> 00:04:46.150
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: RIGHT.
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:48.130
  • - YOU KNOW, THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR, THIS BOOK
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:52.070
  • CAME TO LAURIE AND I.

  • WE HAVE NOW FINISHED AND COMPLETED LISTENING TO IT.
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:58.010
  • WE HAVE READ IT.
  • 00:04:58.030 --> 00:05:00.080
  • I HAVE PAGES MARKED UP.
  • 00:05:00.100 --> 00:05:01.290
  • WHAT I WANT YOU TO KNOW THOUGH IS FOR THOSE THAT
  • 00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:05.180
  • UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF ANY ERWIN MCMANUS
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:09.130
  • BOOK THIS HAS A TOUCH OF LIFE AND DEATH ATTACHED
  • 00:05:09.150 --> 00:05:15.080
  • TO IT.
  • 00:05:15.100 --> 00:05:17.040
  • THERE'S A --THERE'S AN IMPORTANCE TO THIS BOOK
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:19.090
  • THAT I BELIEVE IS PROFOUND.
  • 00:05:19.110 --> 00:05:22.240
  • - THANK YOU.
  • 00:05:22.260 --> 00:05:24.100
  • - AND WE HAVE AN 800 NUMBER ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:05:24.120 --> 00:05:26.200
  • IT'S AVAILABLE NOW.
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:28.120
  • AND LET ME JUST TELL YOU FOR SOMEONE THAT IS IN A
  • 00:05:28.140 --> 00:05:32.010
  • SERIOUS SITUATION, ANY KIND OF SERIOUS SITUATION
  • 00:05:32.030 --> 00:05:36.050
  • THIS BOOK SPEAKS LIFE INTO SITUATIONS THAT ARE
  • 00:05:36.070 --> 00:05:39.030
  • LIFE AND DEATH.
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:41.250
  • AND IF YOU'VE GOT A SERIOUS SITUATION ON YOUR
  • 00:05:41.270 --> 00:05:44.040
  • HANDS I'D ENCOURAGE YOU TO ORDER IT.
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:46.200
  • THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR.
  • 00:05:46.220 --> 00:05:49.040
  • LET'S START AT THE VERY BEGINNING, ERWIN.
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:50.190
  • WHAT IS THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR?
  • 00:05:50.210 --> 00:05:53.020
  • - WELL, THE BOOK IS SUBTITLED AN ANCIENT PATH
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:56.090
  • TO INNER PEACE.
  • 00:05:56.110 --> 00:05:58.050
  • THERE'S A JUXTAPOSITION OF WORDS BETWEEN WARRIOR
  • 00:05:58.070 --> 00:05:59.260
  • AND PEACE.
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:02.020
  • AND I THINK A HUGE PART OF THAT FOR ME IS THAT
  • 00:06:02.040 --> 00:06:05.230
  • PEACE DOESN'T COME EASY.
  • 00:06:05.250 --> 00:06:08.100
  • IT NEVER COMES BY ACCIDENT OR BY BEING
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:10.060
  • PASSIVE, SO I CHOSE THE WARRIOR LANGUAGE BECAUSE
  • 00:06:10.080 --> 00:06:12.180
  • I THINK THE BATTLE FOR YOUR SOUL IS THE MOST
  • 00:06:12.200 --> 00:06:15.200
  • IMPORTANT BATTLE YOU WILL EVER ENGAGE IT.
  • 00:06:15.220 --> 00:06:18.210
  • AND I STARTED LOOKING AT THINGS EVEN FROM A
  • 00:06:18.230 --> 00:06:19.170
  • BROAD LEVEL.
  • 00:06:19.190 --> 00:06:21.030
  • LOOK AT THE WORLD WE'RE LIVING IN RIGHT NOW WITH
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:23.260
  • RAGE AND ANGER, TERRORISM, VIOLENCE,
  • 00:06:23.280 --> 00:06:25.260
  • WITH WAR.
  • 00:06:25.280 --> 00:06:28.020
  • IT'S NOT GETTING BETTER.
  • 00:06:28.040 --> 00:06:29.170
  • IT'S GETTING WORSE.
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:31.070
  • THERE WAS A TIME WHERE YOU WERE AFRAID OF THE
  • 00:06:31.090 --> 00:06:32.290
  • BATTLE LINE BUT NOW YOU'RE AFRAID OF THE
  • 00:06:33.010 --> 00:06:34.140
  • ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.
  • 00:06:34.160 --> 00:06:35.250
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:06:35.270 --> 00:06:37.180
  • - AND WE KNEW WHO THE ENEMY WAS BEFORE AT LEAST
  • 00:06:37.200 --> 00:06:39.290
  • IT SEEMED, BUT NOW IT SEEMS LIKE YOUR NEIGHBOR
  • 00:06:40.010 --> 00:06:42.170
  • MAY BE THE MOST DANGEROUS PERSON IN THE WORLD
  • 00:06:42.190 --> 00:06:44.180
  • AROUND YOU.
  • 00:06:44.200 --> 00:06:46.170
  • AND I STARTED ASKING WHY IS IT WE HUMAN BEINGS ARE
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:49.130
  • SO UNIQUE?
  • 00:06:49.150 --> 00:06:51.250
  • I MEAN, WE ARE A PRETTY SPECIAL SPECIES.
  • 00:06:51.270 --> 00:06:54.010
  • WE ARE THE SPECIES THAT HARNESSED FIRE, LEARNED
  • 00:06:54.030 --> 00:06:56.030
  • HOW TO CONTROL LIGHT.
  • 00:06:56.050 --> 00:06:58.220
  • WE'RE THE SPECIES THAT HARNESSED NUCLEAR AND
  • 00:06:58.240 --> 00:07:00.210
  • SOLAR POWER.
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:02.070
  • WE INVENTED THE INTERNET, THE CELL PHONE,
  • 00:07:02.090 --> 00:07:03.240
  • THE TELEVISION.
  • 00:07:03.260 --> 00:07:05.130
  • WE'RE THE SPECIES THAT DID ALL THAT.
  • 00:07:05.150 --> 00:07:07.290
  • WE FIGURED OUT HOW TO TRAVEL UNDERNEATH THE
  • 00:07:08.010 --> 00:07:09.190
  • WATER IN SUBMARINES AND LEAVE THE ATMOSPHERE IN
  • 00:07:09.210 --> 00:07:11.190
  • SPACE SHIPS, BUT WE CAN NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO
  • 00:07:11.210 --> 00:07:13.120
  • BRING WORLD PEACE.
  • 00:07:13.140 --> 00:07:15.070
  • HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT WE'RE SO COMPLEX AND SO
  • 00:07:15.090 --> 00:07:17.140
  • INNOVATIVE AND INVENTIVE BUT WE FIND PEACE TO BE
  • 00:07:17.160 --> 00:07:22.180
  • ILLUSIVE, AND THE REASON IS BECAUSE YOU CAN'T
  • 00:07:22.200 --> 00:07:25.000
  • CREATE WHAT YOU DON'T HAVE.
  • 00:07:25.020 --> 00:07:26.210
  • THE REASON THE WORLD IS AT WAR IS BECAUSE WE'RE
  • 00:07:26.230 --> 00:07:28.270
  • AT WAR.
  • 00:07:28.290 --> 00:07:30.090
  • THE REASON THERE ARE WARS THAT RAGE AROUND US IS
  • 00:07:30.110 --> 00:07:31.260
  • BECAUSE THERE'S WARS THAT RAGE IN US.
  • 00:07:31.280 --> 00:07:33.150
  • AND WE WILL NEVER HAVE WORLD PEACE UNTIL WE HAVE
  • 00:07:33.170 --> 00:07:35.220
  • INNER PEACE.
  • 00:07:35.240 --> 00:07:37.100
  • SO I WROTE THIS BOOK TO SOLVE 2 PROBLEMS.
  • 00:07:37.120 --> 00:07:39.260
  • ONE, HUMANITY'S PROBLEM OF NOT BEING ABLE TO
  • 00:07:39.280 --> 00:07:43.120
  • CREATE PEACE BUT EACH INDIVIDUAL'S PROBLEM BUT
  • 00:07:43.140 --> 00:07:45.260
  • NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND PEACE.
  • 00:07:45.280 --> 00:07:48.070
  • SO I THINK WE'RE GOING TO FIND THAT THE WAY TO
  • 00:07:48.090 --> 00:07:50.260
  • WORLD PEACE IS TO BRING INNER PEACE ONE PERSON
  • 00:07:50.280 --> 00:07:53.220
  • AT A TIME.
  • 00:07:53.240 --> 00:07:55.110
  • - BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:58.090
  • - YOU KNOW I LOVE -[APPLAUSE] I LOVE HOW YOU
  • 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:01.270
  • SPEAK ABOUT WHAT A WARRIOR IS AND HIS
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:04.290
  • DEMEANOR AND YOU JUST EXPLAIN ALL THE DIFFERENT
  • 00:08:05.010 --> 00:08:07.230
  • CODES IN THE BOOK, BUT THE WARRIOR IS A MAN OF PEACE.
  • 00:08:07.250 --> 00:08:12.210
  • - I'M GOING TO PUSH BACK JUST A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:08:12.230 --> 00:08:14.070
  • - OKAY. OKAY.
  • 00:08:14.090 --> 00:08:16.080
  • - BECAUSE THE WARRIOR CAN BE A WOMAN OF PEACE, TOO.
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:17.060
  • - OH!
  • 00:08:17.080 --> 00:08:18.120
  • I THOUGHT I WAS IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:08:18.140 --> 00:08:20.000
  • - NO, NO, NO.
  • 00:08:20.020 --> 00:08:21.130
  • BECAUSE YOU SAID THE WARRIOR THAT HE IS, AND
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:24.010
  • I'M MARRIED TO AN AMAZING WOMAN NAMED KIM AND SHE'S
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:27.000
  • ONE OF THE GREATEST WARRIORS I'VE EVER KNOWN.
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:28.170
  • THE BOOK IS DEDICATED TO HER.
  • 00:08:28.190 --> 00:08:30.120
  • - YES.
  • 00:08:30.140 --> 00:08:32.220
  • AND WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DEDICATION.
  • 00:08:32.240 --> 00:08:34.050
  • - SHE SAYS IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE BOOK.
  • 00:08:34.070 --> 00:08:35.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:35.070 --> 00:08:35.270
  • - IT IS.
  • 00:08:35.290 --> 00:08:36.200
  • I THOUGHT SO, TOO.
  • 00:08:36.220 --> 00:08:37.220
  • - SHE CRIED.
  • 00:08:37.240 --> 00:08:38.260
  • - IT'S AMAZING.
  • 00:08:38.280 --> 00:08:40.180
  • - BUT MY WIFE IS AN ORPHAN FROM THE AGE OF 8
  • 00:08:40.200 --> 00:08:42.050
  • TO 18.
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:43.180
  • SHE LIVED IN A FOSTER HOME.
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:45.200
  • SHE WAS STARVING AS A CHILD IN A GOVERNMENT
  • 00:08:45.220 --> 00:08:48.090
  • PROJECT UNTIL SOCIAL SERVICES FOUND HER.
  • 00:08:48.110 --> 00:08:50.210
  • SHE WALKED HERSELF TO CHURCH.
  • 00:08:50.230 --> 00:08:52.150
  • SHE WAS THE FIRST OF NINE BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO
  • 00:08:52.170 --> 00:08:54.030
  • GO FINISH HIGH SCHOOL, TO GO TO COLLEGE, TO GET YOUR
  • 00:08:54.050 --> 00:08:56.050
  • MASTER'S DEGREE.
  • 00:08:56.070 --> 00:08:57.110
  • AND EVEN THOUGH THE LANGUAGE MAY SEEM
  • 00:08:57.130 --> 00:09:01.070
  • MASCULINE, I WANT TO SAY UP FRONT THAT WOMEN ARE
  • 00:09:01.090 --> 00:09:03.270
  • SOME OF THE GREATEST WARRIORS
  • 00:09:03.290 --> 00:09:05.220
  • WE'VE EVER KNOWN, FIGHTING FOR MARRIAGES AND OUR
  • 00:09:05.240 --> 00:09:08.020
  • CHILDREN AND FOR OUR COMMUNITIES, FIGHTING FOR
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:11.170
  • OUR SCHOOLS AND OUR WORLD.
  • 00:09:11.190 --> 00:09:14.010
  • AND SO YES, WE WRITE ABOUT THIS WARRIOR
  • 00:09:14.030 --> 00:09:18.080
  • LANGUAGE BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW THIS BOOK IS
  • 00:09:18.100 --> 00:09:20.060
  • WRITTEN AS MUCH FOREWOMEN AS IT IS FOR MEN.
  • 00:09:20.080 --> 00:09:22.030
  • AND I THINK A HUGE PART OF THE PROBLEM IS YOU
  • 00:09:22.050 --> 00:09:23.090
  • STEP BACK IS WHEN A PERSON BELIEVES IN JESUS
  • 00:09:23.110 --> 00:09:26.170
  • AND HAS FAITH IN GOD BUT IS STILL STRUGGLING WITH
  • 00:09:26.190 --> 00:09:30.230
  • DEPRESSION OR WITH PANIC ATTACKS, THEY DON'T
  • 00:09:30.250 --> 00:09:33.010
  • NOWHERE TO GO BECAUSE WHEN A PERSON DOESN'T
  • 00:09:33.030 --> 00:09:35.160
  • BELIEVE IN GOD THEY CAN SAY HEY, I'M DEPRESSED OR
  • 00:09:35.180 --> 00:09:37.270
  • STRESSED OUT OR I'M HAVING PANIC ATTACKS.
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:39.090
  • AND EVERYONE EXPECTS IT.
  • 00:09:39.110 --> 00:09:41.070
  • THEY GO WELL, YEAH.
  • 00:09:41.090 --> 00:09:42.180
  • JUST GET SOME THERAPY.
  • 00:09:42.200 --> 00:09:43.230
  • GET SOME HELP.
  • 00:09:43.250 --> 00:09:45.040
  • BUT WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS A LOT OF TIMES
  • 00:09:45.060 --> 00:09:47.000
  • PEOPLE WILL SAY TO YOU JUST MEMORIZE THIS VERSE
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:48.110
  • OR PRAY ABOUT IT OR JUST TRUST IN JESUS.
  • 00:09:48.130 --> 00:09:50.060
  • SO THAT PERSON NEVER FEELS FREE AGAIN TO TELL
  • 00:09:50.080 --> 00:09:52.070
  • YOU I'M DEPRESSED OR I'M ANXIOUS OR I'M REALLY
  • 00:09:52.090 --> 00:09:55.150
  • STRUGGLING OR I'M HAVING PANIC ATTACKS BECAUSE IT
  • 00:09:55.170 --> 00:09:58.040
  • SOUNDS LIKE THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FAITH IN JESUS.
  • 00:09:58.060 --> 00:10:00.100
  • AND WHAT I WANT PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND IS IF YOU ARE
  • 00:10:00.120 --> 00:10:03.210
  • HONEST WITH YOURSELF AND IF YOU'RE DEALING WITH
  • 00:10:03.230 --> 00:10:06.230
  • STUFF INSIDE OF YOU, IT DOESN'T MAKE YOU A COWARD.
  • 00:10:06.250 --> 00:10:08.290
  • IT MAKES YOU A WARRIOR BECAUSE YOU FINALLY HAVE
  • 00:10:09.010 --> 00:10:10.130
  • THE COURAGE TO FIGHT THE MOST IMPORTANT BATTLE OF
  • 00:10:10.150 --> 00:10:12.050
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:10:12.070 --> 00:10:13.220
  • SO I CHOSE A LANGUAGE OF THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR
  • 00:10:13.240 --> 00:10:15.230
  • ONE, BECAUSE MEN AREN'T GOING TO CARRY A BOOK
  • 00:10:15.250 --> 00:10:17.130
  • THAT SAYS I'M HURTING, HELP ME [LAUGHTER] BUT
  • 00:10:17.150 --> 00:10:19.150
  • THIS BOOK ACTUALLY ADDRESSES THE ENDLESS
  • 00:10:19.170 --> 00:10:24.120
  • NUMBER OF MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE HURTING AND THEY
  • 00:10:24.140 --> 00:10:27.060
  • NEED HELP.
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:28.240
  • AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW JESUS IS THE WAY TO
  • 00:10:28.260 --> 00:10:31.070
  • PEACE, BUT THE WAY TO PEACE DOES NOT COME
  • 00:10:31.090 --> 00:10:32.170
  • WITHOUT A BATTLE.
  • 00:10:32.190 --> 00:10:33.260
  • - WOW.
  • 00:10:33.280 --> 00:10:35.160

  • - THE STANDARD ANSWER-- - I WAS TRYING TO THINK
  • 00:14:00.180 --> 00:14:02.050
  • OF SOMETHING SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:14:02.070 --> 00:14:04.070
  • - YEAH, THE BIBLE.
  • 00:14:04.090 --> 00:14:06.060
  • - GET THE BIBLE.
  • 00:14:06.080 --> 00:14:08.100
  • AND CODY JUST TOOK OVER AND HE SAID THE
  • 00:14:08.120 --> 00:14:09.270
  • ARTISAN'S SOUL.
  • 00:14:09.290 --> 00:14:11.070
  • - BY ERWIN MCMANUS.
  • 00:14:11.090 --> 00:14:12.180
  • - AND IT WAS JUST IMMEDIATE.
  • 00:14:12.200 --> 00:14:14.220
  • - AND IT WAS THE EXACT RIGHT THING AT THE RIGHT
  • 00:14:14.240 --> 00:14:17.000
  • MOMENT FOR THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE RIGHT TIME
  • 00:14:17.020 --> 00:14:19.150
  • LOOKING FOR THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:14:19.170 --> 00:14:21.150
  • - SO BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:14:21.170 --> 00:14:24.110
  • - AND OUR FAMILY BELIEVES IN EVERYTHING
  • 00:14:24.130 --> 00:14:26.260
  • YOU EVER WRITE.
  • 00:14:26.280 --> 00:14:28.020
  • WE LOVE YOU VERY MUCH.
  • 00:14:28.040 --> 00:14:29.130
  • WE BELIEVE IN YOUR VISION.
  • 00:14:29.150 --> 00:14:30.250
  • WE BELIEVE IN YOUR HOLLYWOOD VISION.
  • 00:14:30.270 --> 00:14:32.160
  • WE BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU'RE ACCOMPLISHING.
  • 00:14:32.180 --> 00:14:34.240
  • AND THE VIEWERS AND THE LISTENERS AT TBN AND
  • 00:14:34.260 --> 00:14:36.270
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:39.050
  • ACCOMPLISH, WE'RE BEHIND YOU.
  • 00:14:39.070 --> 00:14:40.120
  • WE'RE WITH YOU.
  • 00:14:40.140 --> 00:14:41.140
  • WE LOVE YOU.
  • 00:14:41.160 --> 00:14:42.180
  • - THANK YOU SO MUCH.
  • 00:14:42.200 --> 00:14:43.200
  • - ERWIN MCMANUS.
  • 00:14:43.220 --> 00:14:44.290
  • COME ON.
  • 00:14:45.010 --> 00:14:46.080
  • GIVE HIM A CLAP.
  • 00:14:46.100 --> 00:14:48.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:50.010
  • THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR.
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:52.030
  • AND YOU HAVE A PRETTY DESCENT OUTSIDE SHOT.
  • 00:14:52.050 --> 00:14:54.020
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:54.040 --> 00:14:56.000
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:14:56.020 --> 00:14:58.260
  • SO AN ANCIENT PATH TO AN INNER PEACE.
  • 00:14:58.280 --> 00:15:00.230
  • WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS START UNFOLDING.
  • 00:15:00.250 --> 00:15:04.050
  • TELL ME WHERE YOU WANT TO START.
  • 00:15:04.070 --> 00:15:05.290
  • I'VE GOT CORNERS FOLDED DOWN.
  • 00:15:06.010 --> 00:15:08.190
  • I'M PREPARED TO KIND OF JUMP INTO A FEW THINGS,
  • 00:15:08.210 --> 00:15:11.210
  • BUT WHY DON'T YOU START WITH WHERE YOU WANT
  • 00:15:11.230 --> 00:15:13.280
  • TO START.
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:17.100
  • THERE WAS -- IN THIS BOOK YOU'RE TALKING YOUR
  • 00:15:17.120 --> 00:15:19.290
  • OPERATION, YOUR CANCER, ALL THAT KIND OF STUFF.
  • 00:15:20.010 --> 00:15:21.280
  • SO KIND OF START WHERE YOU WANT TO START BUT
  • 00:15:22.000 --> 00:15:24.030
  • I'LL BE PREPARED TO KIND OF THROW YOU A FEW
  • 00:15:24.050 --> 00:15:26.120
  • QUESTIONS HERE IN A MINUTE.
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:28.060
  • BUT START WHERE YOU WANT TO START.
  • 00:15:28.080 --> 00:15:29.140
  • - LET ME JUST KIND OF GIVE A BASIC OVER VIEW
  • 00:15:29.160 --> 00:15:31.080
  • BECAUSE THE BOOK IS BROKEN DOWN INTO 8 CODES.
  • 00:15:31.100 --> 00:15:33.190
  • SO I WROTE THE BOOK AS IF AN ANCIENT SAMURAI IS
  • 00:15:33.210 --> 00:15:38.010
  • WRITING IT TO A YOUNG SAMURAI.
  • 00:15:38.030 --> 00:15:40.020
  • AND I WROTE IT AS IF I WAS MENTORING MY SON OR
  • 00:15:40.040 --> 00:15:42.110
  • DAUGHTER AND GIVING THEM THE PRINCIPLES OF
  • 00:15:42.130 --> 00:15:45.050
  • THE WARRIOR.
  • 00:15:45.070 --> 00:15:47.210
  • SO THESE 8 CODES ARE PRINCIPLES BY WHICH YOU
  • 00:15:47.230 --> 00:15:50.160
  • LIVE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:15:50.180 --> 00:15:52.150
  • AND THERE ARE 2 FREQUENCIES IN THE BOOK
  • 00:15:52.170 --> 00:15:54.000
  • THAT I LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT.
  • 00:15:54.020 --> 00:15:56.070
  • ONE IS FOR THE PERSON WHO IS REALLY STRUGGLING WITH
  • 00:15:56.090 --> 00:15:58.180
  • DEPRESSION OR ANXIETY OR FEAR OR WORRY AND FEELS
  • 00:15:58.200 --> 00:16:01.020
  • PARALYZED, IS TRYING TO MOVE TO WHOLENESS.
  • 00:16:01.040 --> 00:16:04.020
  • THERE IS ANOTHER FREQUENCY.
  • 00:16:04.040 --> 00:16:06.170
  • IT'S FOR THAT PERSON WHO KNOWS THEIR LIFE IS TO
  • 00:16:06.190 --> 00:16:10.180
  • MAKE A MARK ON THE WORLD.
  • 00:16:10.200 --> 00:16:12.140
  • THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO DO SOMETHING THAT MATTERS
  • 00:16:12.160 --> 00:16:14.150
  • AND THEY'RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO LIVE AT
  • 00:16:14.170 --> 00:16:16.080
  • THEIR OPTIMAL LEVEL.
  • 00:16:16.100 --> 00:16:17.250
  • SO IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BOOK I ACTUALLY PUT A
  • 00:16:17.270 --> 00:16:19.210
  • TRIAD AROUND SELF MASTERY.
  • 00:16:19.230 --> 00:16:22.010
  • OVER THE YEARS AND YEARS I OBSERVED LEADERSHIP, I
  • 00:16:22.030 --> 00:16:24.140
  • INTERVIEWED THE MOST POWERFUL AND EFFECTIVE
  • 00:16:24.160 --> 00:16:26.020
  • LEADERS IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:16:26.040 --> 00:16:28.030
  • I FOUND CONSISTENT PATTERNS OF HOW THEY
  • 00:16:28.050 --> 00:16:30.200
  • ENGAGE THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:16:30.220 --> 00:16:32.060
  • ONE OF THE CHAPTERS IN THE BOOK, I BELIEVE IT'S
  • 00:16:32.080 --> 00:16:34.130
  • CODE FIVE IS THAT THE WARRIOR OWNS DEFEAT.
  • 00:16:34.150 --> 00:16:36.270
  • I THINK IT'S THE SHORTEST CHAPTER IN THE BOOK AND
  • 00:16:36.290 --> 00:16:38.290
  • MAYBE THE MOST IMPORTANT CHAPTER.
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:41.140
  • IT DEALS WITH PERSONAL OWNERSHIP
  • 00:16:41.160 --> 00:16:43.250
  • AND RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:16:43.270 --> 00:16:46.010
  • IT'S ONE OF THE PROFOUND THINGS I THINK THAT YOU
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:48.220
  • LEARN OVER A LIFETIME IS THAT WHEN YOU OWN DEFEAT,
  • 00:16:48.240 --> 00:16:51.110
  • DEFEAT WILL NEVER OWN YOU.
  • 00:16:51.130 --> 00:16:52.260
  • IF YOU DO NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR
  • 00:16:52.280 --> 00:16:55.190
  • FAILURE, YOU ARE POWERLESS TO CHANGE THE
  • 00:16:55.210 --> 00:16:58.000
  • COURSE OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:58.020 --> 00:17:00.020
  • I'VE SEEN A CULTURAL PATTERN WHERE PEOPLE
  • 00:17:00.040 --> 00:17:03.020
  • ALWAYS BLAME SOMEONE ELSE.
  • 00:17:03.040 --> 00:17:04.230
  • IN FACT, YOU SEE THIS IN ATHLETES.
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:07.040
  • WHEN THEY WIN, THEY TAKE CREDIT FOR BEING
  • 00:17:07.060 --> 00:17:08.050
  • THE STAR.
  • 00:17:08.070 --> 00:17:09.180
  • WHEN THEY LOSE THEY SAY THEIR TEAM ISN'T
  • 00:17:09.200 --> 00:17:10.280
  • GOOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:17:11.000 --> 00:17:12.030
  • - FIRE THE COACH.
  • 00:17:12.050 --> 00:17:13.100
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:17:13.120 --> 00:17:14.110
  • THEY'RE FIRING THE COACH.
  • 00:17:14.130 --> 00:17:16.040
  • THEY'RE GETTING RID OF THE PLAYERS.
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:17.130
  • AND ONE OF THE HUGE SHIFTS A PERSON HAS TO
  • 00:17:17.150 --> 00:17:18.270
  • MAKE IS THAT IF YOU BLAME SOMEONE ELSE, YOU ARE NOW
  • 00:17:18.290 --> 00:17:21.040
  • POWERLESS TO BRING THE CHANGE.
  • 00:17:21.060 --> 00:17:23.110
  • WHEN YOU BLAME SOMEONE ELSE FOR YOUR LIFE, YOUR
  • 00:17:23.130 --> 00:17:25.180
  • CIRCUMSTANCES, YOUR SITUATION, THE PROBLEM IS
  • 00:17:25.200 --> 00:17:27.260
  • SOMEONE ELSE MAY ACTUALLY BE TO BLAME FOR PART OF
  • 00:17:27.280 --> 00:17:29.290
  • IT, BUT EVEN IF IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT, IT'S STILL
  • 00:17:30.010 --> 00:17:31.270
  • YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:17:31.290 --> 00:17:33.240
  • SO I COULD SPEND MY WHOLE LIFE BLAMING EVERYONE.
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:36.000
  • I'M AN IMMIGRANT FROM EL SALVADOR.
  • 00:17:36.020 --> 00:17:37.170
  • I NEVER KNEW MY REAL FATHER.
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:39.170
  • I CAME FROM A REAL TUMULTUOUS
  • 00:17:39.190 --> 00:17:41.180
  • FAMILY SITUATION.
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:43.150
  • I WAS IN A PSYCHIATRIC CHAIR BY THE TIME I
  • 00:17:43.170 --> 00:17:44.080
  • WAS 12.
  • 00:17:44.100 --> 00:17:45.160
  • I COULD SPEND MY WHOLE LIFE BLAMING OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:17:45.180 --> 00:17:46.290
  • FOR THE LIFE I NEVER CHOSE TO LIVE.
  • 00:17:47.010 --> 00:17:49.220
  • OR I CAN STOP GIVING THEM POWER OVER MY LIFE AND
  • 00:17:49.240 --> 00:17:53.100
  • SAY MY LIFE IS MINE TO DECIDE, TO TAKE MASTERY
  • 00:17:53.120 --> 00:17:59.000
  • OVER MY LIFE, TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR
  • 00:17:59.020 --> 00:18:00.270
  • WHERE I AM.
  • 00:18:00.290 --> 00:18:02.230
  • AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS, YOU FINALLY HAVE THE
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:04.280
  • POWER TO BRING THE CHANGES YOU WANT TO CHANGE.
  • 00:18:05.000 --> 00:18:07.020
  • ADAM AND EVE WHEN THEY BROKE THEIR RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:18:07.040 --> 00:18:09.060
  • WITH GOD THE FIRST THING THEY DID WAS BLAME.
  • 00:18:09.080 --> 00:18:11.000
  • ADAM BLAMED EVE.
  • 00:18:11.020 --> 00:18:13.080
  • EVE BLAMED THE SNAKE, AND THE SNAKE HAD NO
  • 00:18:13.100 --> 00:18:15.210
  • ONE TO BLAME.
  • 00:18:15.230 --> 00:18:17.230
  • AND I THINK WHAT YOU FIND IS THE BROKENNESS IN THE
  • 00:18:17.250 --> 00:18:20.020
  • HUMAN PSYCHE IS THAT WE SHIFT BLAME SO WE DON'T
  • 00:18:20.040 --> 00:18:23.220
  • HAVE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:18:23.240 --> 00:18:25.210
  • THAT CHAPTER IS TO ME THE MOST IMPORTANT CHAPTER IN
  • 00:18:25.230 --> 00:18:28.130
  • TERMS OF TAKING OWNERSHIP OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:18:28.150 --> 00:18:30.060
  • IF YOU DO NOT LIKE WHERE YOUR LIFE IS, STOP
  • 00:18:30.080 --> 00:18:32.280
  • BLAMING OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:18:33.000 --> 00:18:34.120
  • STOP BLAMING YOUR PAST.
  • 00:18:34.140 --> 00:18:35.220
  • STOP BLAMING YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:18:35.240 --> 00:18:37.040
  • TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE AND WATCH WHAT
  • 00:18:37.060 --> 00:18:39.010
  • GOD CAN DO WITH THAT.
  • 00:18:39.030 --> 00:18:40.140
  • - BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:18:40.160 --> 00:18:41.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:18:41.270 --> 00:18:44.110
  • - YOU KNOW, I LOVE WHEN YOU TALKED ABOUT ADAM AND
  • 00:18:44.130 --> 00:18:47.250
  • EVE AND YOU WERE SAYING IT MAKES IT SOUNDS LIKE
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:50.090
  • THERE WAS ONLY 2 TREES WHEN THERE WERE ALL THESE
  • 00:18:50.110 --> 00:18:52.210
  • OTHER TREES IN THERE.
  • 00:18:52.230 --> 00:18:54.150
  • DO YOU REMEMBER THAT PART?
  • 00:18:54.170 --> 00:18:56.090
  • - YES, I DO. OF COURSE.
  • 00:18:56.110 --> 00:18:58.140
  • WHEN I FIRST STARTED HEARING THE STORIES OF
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:18:59.240
  • THE BIBLE, I'M LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE, YOU HEAR THE
  • 00:18:59.260 --> 00:19:01.070
  • STORIES BEFORE YOU READ THEM, RIGHT?
  • 00:19:01.090 --> 00:19:03.000
  • AND THEN LATER WHEN YOU READ THEM YOU REALIZE
  • 00:19:03.020 --> 00:19:05.000
  • IT'S NOT THE WAY IT WORKED.
  • 00:19:05.020 --> 00:19:06.100
  • IF YOU HEAR THE STORY IN GENESIS YOU THINK THERE'S
  • 00:19:06.120 --> 00:19:09.050
  • ONLY TWO TREES AND THE REST IS JUST A DESERT.
  • 00:19:09.070 --> 00:19:12.020
  • THERE'S A TREE OF LIFE AND THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:19:12.040 --> 00:19:13.240
  • OF GOOD AND EVIL.
  • 00:19:13.260 --> 00:19:15.030
  • BUT WHEN YOU READ THE BIBLE YOU REALIZE, OH,
  • 00:19:15.050 --> 00:19:16.160
  • THERE ARE LOTS OF TREES.
  • 00:19:16.180 --> 00:19:18.100
  • IT'S A PARADISE, IT'S LUSH WITH TREES AND
  • 00:19:18.120 --> 00:19:21.070
  • FRUIT, AND GOD SAID EAT FREELY. THAT'S THE FIRST
  • 00:19:21.090 --> 00:19:24.090
  • COMMANDMENT IN THE BIBLE BY THE WAY.
  • 00:19:24.110 --> 00:19:25.270
  • I LOVE THAT THE FIRST COMMAND FROM GOD TO
  • 00:19:25.290 --> 00:19:27.200
  • HUMANITY IS EAT FREELY.
  • 00:19:27.220 --> 00:19:29.150
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE EATING FREELY AND BEING
  • 00:19:29.170 --> 00:19:31.030
  • NAKED AND UNASHAMED? JUST A SIDE NOTE.
  • 00:19:31.050 --> 00:19:33.280
  • - NO, NOT REALLY.
  • 00:19:34.000 --> 00:19:36.270
  • - I CAN'T EAT FREELY AND I'M DRESSED AND
  • 00:19:36.290 --> 00:19:38.190
  • ASHAMED, SO I'M THINKING THIS IS HOW BAD IT'S COME.
  • 00:19:38.210 --> 00:19:42.170
  • SO I LOOK AT THAT SITUATION AND REALIZE NO,
  • 00:19:42.190 --> 00:19:44.100
  • GOD GAVE THEM AN ENDLESS NUMBER OF TREES.
  • 00:19:44.120 --> 00:19:46.270
  • GOD IS ALL ABOUT GIVING US OPPORTUNITY AND FREEDOM.
  • 00:19:46.290 --> 00:19:50.180
  • THERE WAS NOT ONLY ONE GOOD TREE.
  • 00:19:50.200 --> 00:19:53.140
  • THERE WAS ONLY ONE TREE THAT WOULD BRING THE
  • 00:19:53.160 --> 00:19:55.260
  • WRONG FUTURE.
  • 00:19:55.280 --> 00:19:58.060
  • SO MANY OF US ACT AS IF GOD IS ALWAYS LIMITING
  • 00:19:58.080 --> 00:20:00.150
  • OUR CHOICES WHEN IN FACT EVERY DESTRUCTIVE CHOICE
  • 00:20:00.170 --> 00:20:03.100
  • YOU MAKE LIMITS YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:20:03.120 --> 00:20:06.010
  • EVERY CHOICE YOU MAKE IN ALIGNMENT WITH GOD
  • 00:20:06.030 --> 00:20:08.230
  • ACTUALLY OPENS UP YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:20:08.250 --> 00:20:10.210
  • YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO YOU TWO HAVE A MADE SO
  • 00:20:10.230 --> 00:20:12.220
  • MANY GOOD CHOICES AND NOW YOUR PROBLEM IS HAVING TO
  • 00:20:12.240 --> 00:20:16.000
  • CHOOSE BETWEEN SO MANY GOOD OPTIONS.
  • 00:20:16.020 --> 00:20:18.260
  • WHEN WE STARTED OUR JOURNEY, WE'RE KIND OF
  • 00:20:18.280 --> 00:20:20.100
  • CHOOSING BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG, GOOD AND BAD,
  • 00:20:20.120 --> 00:20:22.130
  • DO I DO THIS DESTRUCTIVE CHOICE OR DO I DO THE RIGHT
  • 00:20:22.150 --> 00:20:25.200
  • THING? BUT AS YOU GROW IN YOUR FAITH, YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:20:25.220 --> 00:20:28.040
  • CHOOSING BETWEEN A BAD CHOICE AND A GOOD CHOICE;
  • 00:20:28.060 --> 00:20:30.140
  • YOU'RE CHOOSING BETWEEN ALL THESE GOOD CHOICES
  • 00:20:30.160 --> 00:20:33.020
  • AND THE BEST CHOICE.
  • 00:20:33.040 --> 00:20:34.260
  • I LOVE BEING PARALYZED BY SO MANY GOOD OPTIONS,
  • 00:20:34.280 --> 00:20:37.240
  • NOT ALL THE BAD OPTIONS AND ONE GOOD OPTION.
  • 00:20:37.260 --> 00:20:40.030
  • - LAURIE: RIGHT. I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:20:40.050 --> 00:20:42.230
  • - IN THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR, I KIND OF
  • 00:20:42.250 --> 00:20:45.210
  • STOPPED EARLY IN THE BOOK, AND I'LL JUST READ
  • 00:20:45.230 --> 00:20:49.060
  • A COUPLE OF LINES OUT OF IT.
  • 00:20:49.080 --> 00:20:50.240
  • "I'VE COME TO KNOW THE PAINFUL TRUTH IN LIFE,
  • 00:20:50.260 --> 00:20:53.010
  • MOST PEOPLE WOULD RATHER LIVE IN THE
  • 00:20:53.030 --> 00:20:55.140
  • PREDICTABILITY OF CAPTIVITY THAN RISK THE
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:58.150
  • UNCERTAINTY THAT COMES IN A FIGHT FOR FREEDOM."
  • 00:20:58.170 --> 00:21:02.020
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?
  • 00:21:02.040 --> 00:21:06.190
  • - I PROBABLY WROTE THAT LINE A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:21:06.210 --> 00:21:07.270
  • OUT OF FRUSTRATION.
  • 00:21:07.290 --> 00:21:10.090
  • I'M 60 NOW AND I'VE LIVED IN THIS JOURNEY OF
  • 00:21:10.110 --> 00:21:13.200
  • FAITH FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:15.260
  • I'VE HAD SO MANY PEOPLE I LOVE SO DEEPLY AND I
  • 00:21:15.280 --> 00:21:19.020
  • COULD SEE A FUTURE FOR THEM THAT THEY COULDN'T
  • 00:21:19.040 --> 00:21:20.270
  • SEE OR I COULD SEE A FUTURE FOR THEM THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:21:20.290 --> 00:21:24.210
  • WANT. AND ONE OF THE PAINFUL THINGS YOU BEGIN TO
  • 00:21:24.230 --> 00:21:27.260
  • REALIZE OVER A LIFETIME IS YOU CANNOT LEAD A
  • 00:21:27.280 --> 00:21:29.200
  • PERSON INTO A FUTURE THEY DO NOT WANT, YOU CANNOT
  • 00:21:29.220 --> 00:21:33.010
  • LEAD A PERSON TO A FREEDOM THAT THEY DO NOT WANT.
  • 00:21:33.030 --> 00:21:35.170
  • IN FACT, IF YOU HELP A PERSON FIND FREEDOM THAT
  • 00:21:35.190 --> 00:21:38.050
  • DOES NOT WANT FREEDOM, THEY'LL BECOME BITTER
  • 00:21:38.070 --> 00:21:39.210
  • AGAINST YOU BECAUSE YOU'VE PUT THE WEIGHT OF
  • 00:21:39.230 --> 00:21:41.280
  • RESPONSIBILITY ON THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:21:42.000 --> 00:21:44.070
  • AND IT JUST BREAKS MY HEART WHEN I SEE PEOPLE
  • 00:21:44.090 --> 00:21:46.020
  • MAKE DESTRUCTIVE CHOICES BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT
  • 00:21:46.040 --> 00:21:49.240
  • THE RESPONSIBILITY THAT COMES WITH FREEDOM.
  • 00:21:49.260 --> 00:21:52.110
  • HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SEEN SOMEONE CYCLE BACK
  • 00:21:52.130 --> 00:21:54.120
  • TO THE SAME KIND OF RELATIONSHIPS OR THE SAME
  • 00:21:54.140 --> 00:21:56.240
  • KINDS OF CHOICES AND THEN THEY WONDER WHY THEIR
  • 00:21:56.260 --> 00:22:00.080
  • LIFE MAKES NO PROGRESS.
  • 00:22:00.100 --> 00:22:02.070
  • ON THE OTHER SIDE, EVERY HUMAN BEING IS JUST ONE
  • 00:22:02.090 --> 00:22:07.050
  • CHOICE AWAY FROM A LIFE THEY COULDN'T EVEN
  • 00:22:07.070 --> 00:22:10.130
  • IMAGINE, AND THAT'S WHY I WRITE THIS.
  • 00:22:10.150 --> 00:22:13.190
  • I WANT TO IN A SENSE CREATE MORE FEAR FOR
  • 00:22:13.210 --> 00:22:17.110
  • LIVING IN THE SAFETY OF COMPROMISE AND CONFORMITY
  • 00:22:17.130 --> 00:22:22.250
  • THAN TO BE AFRAID OF STEPPING INTO THE UNKNOWN
  • 00:22:22.270 --> 00:22:26.030
  • AND WATCHING GOD CREATE THE NEW.
  • 00:22:26.050 --> 00:22:28.130
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:22:28.150 --> 00:22:30.110
  • THE SECOND PLACE I KIND OF HIGHLIGHTED, "THERE IS
  • 00:22:30.130 --> 00:22:34.000
  • NO SURE WAY TO LOSE YOURSELF THAN TO SPEND
  • 00:22:34.020 --> 00:22:37.140
  • YOUR LIFE THINKING ABOUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:22:37.160 --> 00:22:40.160
  • WHEN YOU FULLY KNOW YOURSELF, THE FOCUS OF
  • 00:22:40.180 --> 00:22:44.060
  • YOUR MIND MOVES TOWARDS SERVING OTHERS.
  • 00:22:44.080 --> 00:22:47.080
  • TO KNOW YOURSELF IS TO KNOW THE WORLD."
  • 00:22:47.100 --> 00:22:50.120
  • WHERE IS YOUR-- EXPAND ON THAT.
  • 00:22:50.140 --> 00:22:54.230
  • - JUST THE OTHER DAY I WAS ASKED, IN FACT
  • 00:22:54.250 --> 00:22:57.060
  • YESTERDAY IN ONE OF THESE INTERVIEWS FOR A NATIONAL
  • 00:22:57.080 --> 00:23:00.170
  • BROADCASTER, WHEN YOU COME TO THE END OF YOUR
  • 00:23:00.190 --> 00:23:03.090
  • LIFE, HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED?
  • 00:23:03.110 --> 00:23:05.090
  • AND I THOUGHT HOW ODD THAT-- THAT'S A COMMON
  • 00:23:05.110 --> 00:23:08.090
  • QUESTION, BUT IT REALLY BOTHERED ME.
  • 00:23:08.110 --> 00:23:11.110
  • I WAS THINKING HOW I DON'T CARE IF I'M
  • 00:23:11.130 --> 00:23:13.200
  • REMEMBERED, I CARE IF I LIVED.
  • 00:23:13.220 --> 00:23:17.070
  • AND THE PROBLEM IS THAT MOST US SPEND MOST OF OUR
  • 00:23:17.090 --> 00:23:19.200
  • LIFE WORRYING ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK ABOUT
  • 00:23:19.220 --> 00:23:21.210
  • US THAN WHO WE REALLY WERE.
  • 00:23:21.230 --> 00:23:25.030
  • AND THERE HAS TO BE A SHIFT WHERE EVENTUALLY
  • 00:23:25.050 --> 00:23:28.000
  • YOU STOP WORRYING ABOUT YOUR REPUTATION AND YOU
  • 00:23:28.020 --> 00:23:30.180
  • START WORRYING ABOUT YOUR ESSENCE.
  • 00:23:30.200 --> 00:23:32.270
  • YOUR FOCUS IS HOW, WHAT IS LIFE I'M ACTUALLY CHOOSING?
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:38.010
  • WHAT ARE THE CHOICES THAT ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:40.140
  • IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:23:40.160 --> 00:23:42.200
  • AND I THINK THE EASIEST WAY TO LOSE YOURSELF IS
  • 00:23:42.220 --> 00:23:44.120
  • TO SPEND YOUR WHOLE LIFE THINKING ABOUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:23:44.140 --> 00:23:46.210
  • IT'S A SELF-INDULGENCE OF NARCISSISM.
  • 00:23:46.230 --> 00:23:50.180
  • SO WHAT ABOUT IF YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:23:50.200 --> 00:23:54.240
  • SUPPOSED TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:23:54.260 --> 00:23:56.100
  • YOU JUST SPENT YOUR WHOLE LIFE HELPING OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:23:56.120 --> 00:23:58.100
  • FIND THE LIFE THEY WERE CREATED TO LIVE.
  • 00:23:58.120 --> 00:24:00.170
  • I THINK THERE'S A BEAUTY WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE
  • 00:24:00.190 --> 00:24:04.040
  • TO SERVE OTHERS BECAUSE WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE
  • 00:24:04.060 --> 00:24:06.220
  • FOR OTHERS, I THINK THAT'S WHEN GOD ACTUALLY
  • 00:24:06.240 --> 00:24:10.090
  • TAKES CARE OF YOUR LIFE TO MAKE SURE YOU LIVE THE
  • 00:24:10.110 --> 00:24:13.070
  • LIFE YOU'RE CREATED TO LIVE.
  • 00:24:13.090 --> 00:24:15.000
  • I DIDN'T SPEND MY LIFE GOING HOW CAN I LIVE OUT
  • 00:24:15.020 --> 00:24:17.050
  • MY DREAMS? I SPENT MOST OF MY LIFE GOING HOW CAN
  • 00:24:17.070 --> 00:24:19.000
  • I HELP OTHER PEOPLE LIVE OUT THEIR DREAMS.
  • 00:24:19.020 --> 00:24:21.250
  • I THINK YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO SERVE OTHERS AND LET
  • 00:24:21.270 --> 00:24:24.220
  • GOD TAKE CARE OF YOU.
  • 00:24:24.240 --> 00:24:28.070
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:24:28.090 --> 00:24:32.110
  • - OKAY. LET ME JUST KIND OF RESET IF YOU JUST TUNED IN,
  • 00:24:32.130 --> 00:24:38.030
  • THIS SWEET AUDIENCE HERE KIND OF DO A LITTLE
  • 00:24:38.050 --> 00:24:41.140
  • WAVE AND SMILE.
  • 00:24:41.160 --> 00:24:43.150
  • SMILE WHETHER YOU HAVE TEETH OR NOT.
  • 00:24:43.170 --> 00:24:45.070
  • JUST REAL BIG SMILE. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:24:45.090 --> 00:24:47.270
  • AND WE WELCOME YOU TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:24:47.290 --> 00:24:50.020
  • - THAT WAS REALLY FUNNY.
  • 00:24:50.040 --> 00:24:51.250
  • - AND WE ARE SITTING WITH ERWIN MC MANUS.
  • 00:24:51.270 --> 00:24:53.250
  • BY THE WAY, I WANT TO JUST SAY THAT YOUR
  • 00:24:53.270 --> 00:24:56.240
  • CHURCH, AND EVERYONE KNOWS MOSAIC CHURCH IS IN
  • 00:24:56.260 --> 00:24:59.260
  • LOS ANGELES, I THINK IT'S RIGHT AT CORNER OF
  • 00:24:59.280 --> 00:25:02.090
  • HOLLYWOOD AND LA BREA.
  • 00:25:02.110 --> 00:25:03.150
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:25:03.170 --> 00:25:04.240
  • - I USED TO DRIVE PAST THERE A LOT.
  • 00:25:04.260 --> 00:25:07.190
  • I KNOW THAT'S RIGHT ON HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD JUST
  • 00:25:07.210 --> 00:25:09.200
  • OFF THOSE KIND OF FAKE OSCAR LOOKING THINGS
  • 00:25:09.220 --> 00:25:14.020
  • ON THE CORNER THERE.
  • 00:25:14.040 --> 00:25:15.250
  • YOUR CHURCH RIGHT THERE AT THE CORNER THERE IN
  • 00:25:15.270 --> 00:25:21.050
  • HOLLYWOOD IS WHERE YOU HOLD CHURCH.
  • 00:25:21.070 --> 00:25:23.120
  • IT'S WHERE I THINK ABOUT WHEN I THINK ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:25:23.140 --> 00:25:26.050
  • BUT YOU'RE STARTING TO EXPAND DOWN INTO ORANGE
  • 00:25:26.070 --> 00:25:29.130
  • COUNTY, AND BY THE WAY THERE'S INFORMATION ON
  • 00:25:29.150 --> 00:25:33.260
  • THE SCREEN THAT CAN HELP YOU FIND OR CONNECT WITH
  • 00:25:33.280 --> 00:25:38.270
  • THE MOSAIC VIBE AND ERWIN MC MANUS AND THE WHOLE
  • 00:25:38.290 --> 00:25:46.010
  • MOSAIC THING HERE IN ORANGE COUNTY AND GET CONNECTED.
  • 00:25:46.030 --> 00:25:50.090
  • PLUG IN. L.A., ORANGE COUNTY, THE WHOLE AREA.
  • 00:25:50.110 --> 00:25:54.050
  • WHEN YOU THINK OF THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR AND YOU
  • 00:25:54.070 --> 00:25:58.120
  • THINK OF YOU DON'T USE THE WORD, OR YOU USE THE
  • 00:25:58.140 --> 00:26:03.020
  • WORD BUT YOUR VERBIAGE AND YOUR VERNACULAR ARE
  • 00:26:03.040 --> 00:26:06.040
  • SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT, BUT AREN'T YOU TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:26:06.060 --> 00:26:08.210
  • VICTIM MENTALITY WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:26:08.230 --> 00:26:12.060
  • THIS, THAT THAT'S REALLY ONE OF THE BIGGEST
  • 00:26:12.080 --> 00:26:16.110
  • ANCHORS TO A PERSON MOVING ON IN A LIFE AND
  • 00:26:16.130 --> 00:26:21.150
  • ACCOMPLISHING THING THAT GOD HAS FOR THEM TO DO.
  • 00:26:21.170 --> 00:26:24.040
  • SO BASICALLY BLAMING YOUR UPBRINGING, BLAMING YOUR
  • 00:26:24.060 --> 00:26:29.200
  • VICTIM MENTALITY IS KIND OF THE WORST CASE
  • 00:26:29.220 --> 00:26:32.190
  • SCENARIO FOR SOMEBODY.
  • 00:26:32.210 --> 00:26:33.270
  • IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.
  • 00:26:33.290 --> 00:26:35.200
  • - ABSOLUTELY. IT'S SUBTLE TOO BECAUSE ONCE WE HAD THESE
  • 00:26:35.220 --> 00:26:38.170
  • FRAMEWORKS OF WHETHER SOMETHING IS RIGHT OR
  • 00:26:38.190 --> 00:26:40.030
  • WRONG OR SOMEBODY WAS GOOD OR BAD, AND NOW WE
  • 00:26:40.050 --> 00:26:43.140
  • HAVE THIS FRAMEWORK YOU'RE EITHER A VICTIM
  • 00:26:43.160 --> 00:26:46.150
  • OR A VICTIMIZER, AND THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO
  • 00:26:46.170 --> 00:26:49.150
  • BE A THIRD OPTION.
  • 00:26:49.170 --> 00:26:51.110
  • SO IT PUSHES EVERYBODY TOWARD BEING A VICTIM
  • 00:26:51.130 --> 00:26:53.120
  • BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS TO BE A VICTIMIZER.
  • 00:26:53.140 --> 00:26:56.040
  • AND DO YOU THINK WE HAVE THIS CULTURAL MENTALITY
  • 00:26:56.060 --> 00:26:59.090
  • THAT WE'RE ALL VICTIMS, AND BECAUSE OF THAT WE
  • 00:26:59.110 --> 00:27:02.260
  • END UP LIVING OUR LIVES POWERLESS.
  • 00:27:02.280 --> 00:27:06.030
  • HERE'S THE CRAZY THING, THE VERY PERSON WHO SAYS
  • 00:27:06.050 --> 00:27:10.220
  • THE REASON I'M THIS WAY IS BECAUSE OF ALL THESE
  • 00:27:10.240 --> 00:27:13.090
  • THINGS, THERE'S SOMEONE STANDING NEXT TO THEM WHO
  • 00:27:13.110 --> 00:27:15.200
  • WENT THROUGH MORE.
  • 00:27:15.220 --> 00:27:17.160
  • AND SO YOU REALIZE THAT RESILIENCE HAS VERY
  • 00:27:17.180 --> 00:27:21.160
  • LITTLE TO DO WITH WHAT YOU GO THROUGH, BUT WHAT
  • 00:27:21.180 --> 00:27:24.240
  • YOU ACTUALLY BUILD WITHIN YOURSELF.
  • 00:27:24.260 --> 00:27:27.170
  • AND SO YOU'RE RIGHT, THERE IS THIS CULTURE OF
  • 00:27:27.190 --> 00:27:30.000
  • VICTIMIZATION, AND WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL
  • 00:27:30.020 --> 00:27:31.250
  • BECAUSE THE MOMENT YOU SEE YOURSELF AS A VICTIM,
  • 00:27:31.270 --> 00:27:34.020
  • YOU CHOOSE YOUR POWERLESSNESS.
  • 00:27:34.040 --> 00:27:36.010
  • BY THE WAY, THIS IS WHY FORGIVENESS IS SO
  • 00:27:36.030 --> 00:27:37.190
  • IMPORTANT BECAUSE WHEN YOU ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN
  • 00:27:37.210 --> 00:27:40.270
  • HURT BY SOMEONE, WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN WOUNDED BY
  • 00:27:40.290 --> 00:27:42.170
  • SOMEONE, WHEN YOU'VE BEEN VICTIMIZED BECAUSE THERE
  • 00:27:42.190 --> 00:27:44.230
  • ARE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY ARE VICTIMS AND THEY'VE
  • 00:27:44.250 --> 00:27:47.050
  • BEEN VICTIMIZED, IF YOU DON'T FORGIVE, YOU
  • 00:27:47.070 --> 00:27:49.230
  • ACTUALLY LIVE IN THAT PAST EXPERIENCE
  • 00:27:49.250 --> 00:27:51.260
  • THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:27:51.280 --> 00:27:53.130
  • AND YOU GIVE A PERSON WHO SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAD ANY
  • 00:27:53.150 --> 00:27:56.130
  • POWER OVER YOUR LIFE CONTINUED POWER OVER YOUR
  • 00:27:56.150 --> 00:27:59.130
  • LIFE. THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN BREAK THE POWER OF THAT
  • 00:27:59.150 --> 00:28:04.050
  • VICTIMIZER FROM YOUR LIFE IS ACTUALLY FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:28:04.070 --> 00:28:07.240
  • AND WHEN YOU FORGIVE, YOU MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:28:07.260 --> 00:28:09.100
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:28:09.120 --> 00:28:13.050
  • - YOU FIND SO MANY PEOPLE THAT GET STUCK IN
  • 00:28:13.070 --> 00:28:15.030
  • A TIME AND THEY CAN NEVER GET PAST THAT
  • 00:28:15.050 --> 00:28:17.120
  • TIME IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:28:17.140 --> 00:28:19.030
  • - THEY'RE LIVING IN THAT MOMENT.
  • 00:28:19.050 --> 00:28:20.230
  • AND ISN'T IT TRAGIC TO LIVE IN YOUR WORST MOMENT?
  • 00:28:20.250 --> 00:28:25.150
  • AND THAT'S WHAT BITTERNESS DOES. BITTERNESS MAKES
  • 00:28:25.170 --> 00:28:27.230
  • YOU A PRISONER IN YOUR WORST MOMENT.
  • 00:28:27.250 --> 00:28:30.000
  • - AND THAT PERSON CAN BE DEAD AND
  • 00:28:30.020 --> 00:28:31.150
  • NOT EVEN HERE AND STILL--
  • 00:28:31.170 --> 00:28:33.190
  • - AND IF THEY'RE UNREPENTANT, WHICH DRIVES A PERSON
  • 00:28:33.210 --> 00:28:36.120
  • CRAZY, WHY SHOULD I FORGIVE A PERSON WHO'S NOT SORRY?
  • 00:28:36.140 --> 00:28:39.120
  • AND YOU GO BECAUSE THEY MOVED ON, THEY MOVED INTO
  • 00:28:39.140 --> 00:28:42.140
  • THEIR DARKNESS. YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE TRAPPED THERE.
  • 00:28:42.160 --> 00:28:46.060
  • SO WHY LEAVE YOURSELF THERE WHEN THEY'VE MOVED ON?
  • 00:28:46.080 --> 00:28:50.020
  • AND THE BOOK REALLY FOCUSED A LOT ON TAKING
  • 00:28:50.040 --> 00:28:53.030
  • MASTERY OVER YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:28:53.050 --> 00:28:55.100
  • THE LAST CODE IS THE WARRIOR STANDS IN THEIR PAIN.
  • 00:28:55.120 --> 00:28:58.160
  • ONE OF THE THINGS I HAD TO FACE, IN FACT I WROTE
  • 00:28:58.180 --> 00:29:01.100
  • ABOUT IT IN THE BOOK, WHEN I HAD THE SIX AND
  • 00:29:01.120 --> 00:29:03.150
  • A HALF HOUR SURGERY.
  • 00:29:03.170 --> 00:29:04.230
  • IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A TWO HOUR SURGERY AND
  • 00:29:04.250 --> 00:29:06.020
  • ENDED UP BEING SIX PLUS HOURS.
  • 00:29:06.040 --> 00:29:07.240
  • THEY PUT ME IN THE HOSPITAL ROOM AT 9:00 P.M.,
  • 00:29:07.260 --> 00:29:09.180
  • I WOKE UP AT MIDNIGHT, THREE HOURS LATER.
  • 00:29:09.200 --> 00:29:12.210
  • I WOKE UP MY WIFE KIM WHO WAS SITTING IN A CHAIR NEXT
  • 00:29:12.230 --> 00:29:14.130
  • TO ME, AND SHE WAS PANICKING WHEN I WOKE HER
  • 00:29:14.150 --> 00:29:16.120
  • UP BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG.
  • 00:29:16.140 --> 00:29:18.000
  • I SAID I'M GONNA GET UP AND WALK.
  • 00:29:18.020 --> 00:29:20.270
  • AND KIM SAID YOU'RE NOT GETTING UP AND WALKING.
  • 00:29:20.290 --> 00:29:23.090
  • - YOU JUST PUT HER THROUGH SO MUCH.
  • 00:29:23.110 --> 00:29:26.210
  • - SHE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS GETTING INTO.
  • 00:29:26.230 --> 00:29:27.250
  • WE WERE MARRIED 35 YEARS.
  • 00:29:27.270 --> 00:29:30.080
  • SHE GOES YOU'RE NOT GETTING UP AND WALKING.
  • 00:29:30.100 --> 00:29:31.130
  • I SAID NO, I'M GETTING UP AND WALKING.
  • 00:29:31.150 --> 00:29:33.010
  • SO SHE SNITCHES AND CALLS THE NURSE AND THE NURSE
  • 00:29:33.030 --> 00:29:37.280
  • COMES IN, SHE GOES CAN I HELP YOU?
  • 00:29:38.000 --> 00:29:39.090
  • AND MY WIFE IS LIKE HE WANTS TO WALK, TELL HIM
  • 00:29:39.110 --> 00:29:40.280
  • HE CANNOT GET UP AND WALK.
  • 00:29:41.000 --> 00:29:42.100
  • AND THE NURSE SAYS YOU CANNOT GET UP AND WALK.
  • 00:29:42.120 --> 00:29:44.010
  • I SAID NO, I'M GONNA GET UP AND I'M GONNA WALK.
  • 00:29:44.030 --> 00:29:46.000
  • AND THE NURSE SAID SIR, YOU CANNOT GET UP AND WALK.
  • 00:29:46.020 --> 00:29:48.080
  • MY WIFE'S PANICKING GOING YOU CANNOT GET UP AND WALK.
  • 00:29:48.100 --> 00:29:50.010
  • AND I LOOKED AT THE NURSE AND I SAID CAN I ACTUALLY
  • 00:29:50.030 --> 00:29:53.140
  • DO ANY DAMAGE TO MYSELF IF I GET UP AND WALK?
  • 00:29:53.160 --> 00:29:56.060
  • AND SHE SAID WELL NO, TECHNICALLY NO.
  • 00:29:56.080 --> 00:29:59.150
  • I SAID THEN I'M GONNA GET UP AND I'M GONNA WALK.
  • 00:29:59.170 --> 00:30:01.050
  • SHE SAID IF YOU'RE GONNA DO THAT, LET ME GET YOU
  • 00:30:01.070 --> 00:30:03.150
  • SOME PAIN KILLERS FIRST BECAUSE IT'S GONNA BE
  • 00:30:03.170 --> 00:30:04.290
  • PRETTY PAINFUL. AND I SAID NO.
  • 00:30:05.010 --> 00:30:08.260
  • I SAID THIS IS THE WHOLE POINT.
  • 00:30:08.280 --> 00:30:10.190
  • I KNOW IF I CAN STAND IN THIS PAIN, I CAN FACE
  • 00:30:10.210 --> 00:30:12.150
  • WHATEVER PAIN'S AHEAD OF ME.
  • 00:30:12.170 --> 00:30:14.090
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:30:14.110 --> 00:30:19.140
  • - BUT NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE DO THAT.
  • 00:30:19.160 --> 00:30:21.130
  • - NO BECAUSE MOST OF US, WE'VE BEEN TRAINED THAT
  • 00:30:21.150 --> 00:30:24.020
  • OUR PAIN IS OUR BOUNDARY WHEN WE DON'T REALIZE
  • 00:30:24.040 --> 00:30:27.270
  • THAT GREATNESS IS ALWAYS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF OUR
  • 00:30:27.290 --> 00:30:30.080
  • PAIN. AND IN ANY ENDEAVOR IN LIFE, WHETHER IT'S IN
  • 00:30:30.100 --> 00:30:34.110
  • SPORTS OR IN MARRIAGE OR IN PHYSICAL RECOVERY, IF
  • 00:30:34.130 --> 00:30:39.160
  • THE AMOUNT OF PAIN YOU'RE ABLE TO ENDURE WILL
  • 00:30:39.180 --> 00:30:43.080
  • DETERMINE THE AMOUNT OF STRENGTH YOU'LL HAVE ON
  • 00:30:43.100 --> 00:30:45.060
  • THE OTHER SIDE OF IT.
  • 00:30:45.080 --> 00:30:47.000
  • AND WHEN I STOOD UP, I WISH I COULD TELL YOU
  • 00:30:47.020 --> 00:30:49.050
  • THERE WAS LIKE THIS MIRACULOUS INTERVENTION
  • 00:30:49.070 --> 00:30:51.110
  • WHERE I FELT NO PAIN, BUT THAT WOULD BE A LIE.
  • 00:30:51.130 --> 00:30:55.080
  • I FELT SO MUCH PAIN, IT WAS ALMOST UNBEARABLE.
  • 00:30:55.100 --> 00:30:58.040
  • WHEN I STOOD ON MY TWO FEET AND THE WEIGHT OF MY
  • 00:30:58.060 --> 00:31:00.290
  • BODY ON THOSE SIX HOLES IN MY ABDOMEN, I WANTED
  • 00:31:01.010 --> 00:31:04.060
  • TO SCREAM BLOODY MURDER.
  • 00:31:04.080 --> 00:31:06.180
  • AND I TOOK MY FIRST STEP AND I WANTED TO JUMP BACK
  • 00:31:06.200 --> 00:31:08.280
  • IN THAT BED, BUT I TOOK A SECOND STEP AND A THIRD
  • 00:31:09.000 --> 00:31:11.220
  • STEP AND A FOURTH STEP AND TO THEIR SURPRISE I
  • 00:31:11.240 --> 00:31:14.100
  • WALK OUT OF THE ROOM DOWN THE HALLWAY.
  • 00:31:14.120 --> 00:31:16.250
  • AND THREE HOURS LATER, I DID IT AGAIN.
  • 00:31:16.270 --> 00:31:19.230
  • I WOKE MYSELF UP AND I WALKED FURTHER, THEN AT
  • 00:31:19.250 --> 00:31:22.200
  • 8:00 IN THE MORNING OR SO WHEN THERE WAS A
  • 00:31:22.220 --> 00:31:24.210
  • NURSING SHIFT AND MY WIFE WENT TO GET COFFEE,
  • 00:31:24.230 --> 00:31:26.220
  • I GOT UP OUT OF THAT BED. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:31:26.240 --> 00:31:28.240
  • - LAURIE: I'M GLAD YOU WAITED.
  • 00:31:28.260 --> 00:31:31.100
  • - I TOOK A SHOWER, I GOT MYSELF DRESSED TO GO
  • 00:31:31.120 --> 00:31:34.120
  • HOME, AND WHEN THEY CAME BACK I SAID I'M READY TO
  • 00:31:34.140 --> 00:31:37.170
  • BE RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL. AND THEY SAID
  • 00:31:37.190 --> 00:31:41.080
  • YOU HAVE TO AT LEAST EAT ONE MEAL HERE.
  • 00:31:41.100 --> 00:31:42.240
  • I SAID NOW THAT IS TORTURE. NO.
  • 00:31:42.260 --> 00:31:44.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:31:44.190 --> 00:31:46.070
  • THAT'S A PAIN I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN BEAR.
  • 00:31:46.090 --> 00:31:48.120
  • AND I WENT HOME THAT DAY AND I COULD TELL YOU THE
  • 00:31:48.140 --> 00:31:51.050
  • REASON I WAS ON A BASKETBALL COURT IN THREE
  • 00:31:51.070 --> 00:31:54.110
  • WEEKS AND THE REASON I WAS BACK IN FULL SWING
  • 00:31:54.130 --> 00:31:56.110
  • WITHIN WEEKS WAS NOT BECAUSE I HAVE A
  • 00:31:56.130 --> 00:31:59.100
  • SUPERNATURAL CAPACITY.
  • 00:31:59.120 --> 00:32:01.200
  • IT WAS BECAUSE I WAS WILLING TO BEAR MORE PAIN
  • 00:32:01.220 --> 00:32:03.230
  • THAN MOST PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO TAKE.
  • 00:32:03.250 --> 00:32:05.210
  • I LEARNED EARLY ON IN MY LIFE THAT FEAR WILL LIMIT
  • 00:32:05.230 --> 00:32:10.270
  • YOU, THAT PAIN WILL LIMIT YOU, AND THAT FAILURE
  • 00:32:10.290 --> 00:32:14.210
  • WILL LIMIT YOU.
  • 00:32:14.230 --> 00:32:16.100
  • YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR FUTURE IS ON
  • 00:32:16.120 --> 00:32:20.000
  • THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR FAILURE, THAT YOUR
  • 00:32:20.020 --> 00:32:24.050
  • FREEDOM IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR PAIN AND
  • 00:32:24.070 --> 00:32:27.050
  • THAT YOUR GREATNESS IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR FEARS.
  • 00:32:27.070 --> 00:32:31.100
  • - WOW. GOODNESS.
  • 00:32:31.120 --> 00:32:34.170
  • ERWIN MC MANUS THINKS DIFFERENTLY THAN MOST OF US.
  • 00:32:34.190 --> 00:32:41.130
  • I WOULD HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT WHAT KIND OF PAIN
  • 00:32:41.150 --> 00:32:45.000
  • MEDICATION THAT THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO
  • 00:32:45.020 --> 00:32:48.130
  • GIVE ME AND HOW MANY, AND YOU'RE TALKING
  • 00:32:48.150 --> 00:32:51.130
  • ABOUT THE OPPOSITE.
  • 00:32:51.150 --> 00:32:55.090
  • THAT'S WHY HE WRITES BOOKS LIKE THIS,
  • 00:32:55.110 --> 00:32:58.070
  • THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR.
  • 00:32:58.090 --> 00:33:00.090
  • YOU HAVE THE MOST AMAZING ABILITY TO SMACK SOMEBODY
  • 00:33:00.110 --> 00:33:07.130
  • UPSIDE THE FACE AND ENCOURAGE THEM AT THE
  • 00:33:07.150 --> 00:33:11.000
  • SAME TIME, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE YOU'RE JUST
  • 00:33:11.020 --> 00:33:13.240
  • SMACKING THE IDEA OF VICTIMIZATION.
  • 00:33:13.260 --> 00:33:18.280
  • WHEN YOU'RE SAYING YEAH, BUT HE DID THIS, AND I
  • 00:33:19.000 --> 00:33:22.170
  • DIDN'T GET AN OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE THEY GOT IT, AND
  • 00:33:22.190 --> 00:33:26.070
  • I GOT KICKED OUT OF THIS, OR I GOT-- AND I'VE BEEN
  • 00:33:26.090 --> 00:33:30.190
  • STOLEN FROM AND ALL THIS.
  • 00:33:30.210 --> 00:33:32.160
  • IT SOUNDS SO WHINY WHEN YOU'RE READING THIS BOOK,
  • 00:33:32.180 --> 00:33:38.290
  • BUT AT THE SAME TIME IT'S SO ENCOURAGING IF THAT'S
  • 00:33:39.010 --> 00:33:41.250
  • THE WAY THAT YOU LITERALLY ARE
  • 00:33:41.270 --> 00:33:44.280
  • EXPERIENCING YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:33:45.000 --> 00:33:46.130
  • IF YOU FIND YOURSELF WHERE MOST OF THE TIME
  • 00:33:46.150 --> 00:33:51.200
  • YOU THINK YOU'RE A VICTIM, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU.
  • 00:33:51.220 --> 00:33:55.190
  • IT WILL IRRITATE YOU AND AT THE SAME TIME
  • 00:33:55.210 --> 00:33:58.260
  • ENCOURAGE YOU INTO SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:33:58.280 --> 00:34:00.250
  • GOD HAS FOR YOU THAT.
  • 00:34:00.270 --> 00:34:02.160
  • - I LOVE WHAT YOU SAID THOUGH ABOUT ENCOURAGE.
  • 00:34:02.180 --> 00:34:04.210
  • IT MEANS TO PUT IN COURAGE.
  • 00:34:04.230 --> 00:34:06.230
  • YOU'RE PUTTING, WHEN YOU'RE ENCOURAGING
  • 00:34:06.250 --> 00:34:08.210
  • SOMEONE YOU'RE PUTTING COURAGE INTO THEM.
  • 00:34:08.230 --> 00:34:10.130
  • I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:34:10.150 --> 00:34:12.100
  • WE SHOULD ALL DO THAT.
  • 00:34:12.120 --> 00:34:13.260
  • [APPLAUSE] I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:34:13.280 --> 00:34:15.270
  • - IT'S SO SWEET!
  • 00:34:15.290 --> 00:34:19.210
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR,
  • 00:34:19.230 --> 00:34:22.050
  • ERWIN MC MANUS IS GONNA BE HERE ALL HOUR.
  • 00:34:22.070 --> 00:34:24.090
  • WE'VE GOT A LITTLE BIT OF A BOOK THING TO SHOW YOU

  • MORE ABOUT THE BOOK. WATCH THIS. CALL THE NUMBER.

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:34:28.270 --> 00:34:31.110
  • - ERWIN: WE LIVE IN A CITY THAT HAS AN EXTREME CONTRAST,
  • 00:34:31.130 --> 00:34:36.250
  • BUT OVERWHELMINGLY A REALLY SMART CITY,
  • 00:34:36.270 --> 00:34:40.040
  • A REALLY TALENTED CITY, A REALLY GIFTED CITY,
  • 00:34:40.060 --> 00:34:43.100
  • A REALLY CREATIVE CITY, AND IF YOU LOOKED AT IT
  • 00:34:43.120 --> 00:34:46.090
  • FROM THE OUTSIDE, YOU WOULD THINK THIS IS THE CITY
  • 00:34:46.110 --> 00:34:48.140
  • WITH ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT ALL TOGETHER.
  • 00:34:48.160 --> 00:34:51.120
  • THIS SHOULD BE THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH.
  • 00:34:51.140 --> 00:34:54.180
  • AND IT'S NOT THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH.
  • 00:34:54.200 --> 00:34:57.200
  • IT'S A CITY FULL OF PEOPLE STRUGGLING WITH
  • 00:34:57.220 --> 00:35:00.270
  • DEPRESSION, A CITY FULL OF PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING
  • 00:35:00.290 --> 00:35:04.170
  • WITH AN OVERWHELMING SENSE OF DISCONNECTION
  • 00:35:04.190 --> 00:35:06.270
  • AND LONELINESS, IT'S A CITY WHERE PEOPLE REALLY
  • 00:35:06.290 --> 00:35:11.180
  • SUFFER FROM ANXIETY, IT'S A CITY THAT IS
  • 00:35:11.200 --> 00:35:15.080
  • SELF-MEDICATED BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW OURSELVES.
  • 00:35:15.100 --> 00:35:23.060
  • AND ON THE BACKDROP OF EIGHT OF THE MOST AMAZING
  • 00:35:23.080 --> 00:35:26.210
  • DAYS FOR 265 PEOPLE LEAN IN AND SAY YES TO JESUS
  • 00:35:26.230 --> 00:35:30.270
  • IN SOME FORM OR ANOTHER, WE WAKE UP AND ONE OF THE

  • YOUNG GUYS IN OUR COMMUNITY TAKES HIS LIFE.
  • 00:35:36.030 --> 00:35:40.190
  • WHEN I WROTE THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR, I WAS
  • 00:35:43.020 --> 00:35:44.220
  • GRAPPLING WITH ONE UNIVERSAL QUESTION:
  • 00:35:44.240 --> 00:35:47.080
  • CAN HUMANITY EVER COME TO KNOW PEACE?
  • 00:35:47.100 --> 00:35:50.140
  • THE WORLD RAGES IN WAR BECAUSE THERE'S A WAR
  • 00:35:50.160 --> 00:35:53.070
  • THAT RAGES WITHIN US.
  • 00:35:53.090 --> 00:35:55.230
  • HOW DO WE COME TO WORLD PEACE?
  • 00:35:55.250 --> 00:35:57.220
  • IT CAN ONLY BE ANSWERED IN ONE WAY.
  • 00:35:57.240 --> 00:35:59.290
  • THE WORLD WILL NEVER KNOW PEACE UNTIL WE KNOW PEACE.
  • 00:36:00.030 --> 00:36:03.110
  • THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR IS A BATTLE FOR PEACE AND
  • 00:36:03.130 --> 00:36:06.180
  • THE STRUGGLE IS COMPLETELY WITHIN US.
  • 00:36:06.200 --> 00:36:11.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:36:11.100 --> 00:36:14.290
  • - SOMEHOW WE HAVE FIGURED OUT HOW TO FOR
  • 00:36:15.010 --> 00:36:20.060
  • ANY GIFT OF ANY AMOUNT THAT BOOK IS AVAILABLE,
  • 00:36:20.080 --> 00:36:23.230
  • THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR.
  • 00:36:23.250 --> 00:36:25.110
  • THIS IS A BRAND-NEW BOOK, FANTASTIC.
  • 00:36:25.130 --> 00:36:28.250
  • IF YOU'RE WATCHING THIS THE FIRST TIME IT'S ON
  • 00:36:28.270 --> 00:36:31.080
  • THE AIR, IT'S THE FOURTH OF APRIL 2019, AND WE
  • 00:36:31.100 --> 00:36:36.290
  • ENCOURAGE YOU TO GO AND GET THIS BOOK,
  • 00:36:37.010 --> 00:36:38.250
  • THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR.
  • 00:36:38.270 --> 00:36:40.030
  • - I ALWAYS LOVE TO HEAR-- THIS SOUNDS SICK.
  • 00:36:40.050 --> 00:36:43.150
  • HOPEFULLY IT'S NOT SICK.
  • 00:36:43.170 --> 00:36:45.110
  • I LOVE WHEN PEOPLE HAVE A NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE TO
  • 00:36:45.130 --> 00:36:49.170
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY AFTERWARDS, AND
  • 00:36:49.190 --> 00:36:52.180
  • I THINK, I MEAN I HAVE LOVED AND JUST WANTED TO,
  • 00:36:52.200 --> 00:36:59.010
  • I LOVED EVERY BOOK, I MEAN FROM THE FIRST ONE
  • 00:36:59.030 --> 00:37:02.210
  • ON, AND THIS ONE, I MEAN-- SO I LISTEN,
  • 00:37:02.230 --> 00:37:08.020
  • I LISTEN TO A LOT OF BOOKS BECAUSE IT HELPS ME.
  • 00:37:08.040 --> 00:37:11.160
  • - ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE BARBARIAN WAY AND
  • 00:37:11.180 --> 00:37:13.040
  • ARTISAN SOUL AND ALL THE--
  • 00:37:13.060 --> 00:37:15.120
  • - BUT THIS ONE,
  • 00:37:15.140 --> 00:37:18.010
  • THE ENDING OF THIS BOOK WAS JUST SUCH A CHALLENGE
  • 00:37:18.030 --> 00:37:23.270
  • AND SUCH AN ENFORCEMENT OF WHAT YOU CAN BE AND
  • 00:37:23.290 --> 00:37:27.240
  • WHAT YOU CAN DO, AND I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:37:27.260 --> 00:37:29.220
  • BUT YOU TALK ABOUT THE WARRIOR BEING INVISIBLE.
  • 00:37:29.240 --> 00:37:33.050
  • CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE?
  • 00:37:33.070 --> 00:37:35.160
  • - SURE. I THINK ONE OF THE EARLIER CODES, MAYBE CODE
  • 00:37:35.180 --> 00:37:39.150
  • THREE IS THE WARRIOR SEEKS TO BE INVISIBLE, AND THERE IS
  • 00:37:39.170 --> 00:37:44.040
  • A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAME AND GREATNESS.
  • 00:37:44.060 --> 00:37:47.060
  • I LIVE IN A CITY THAT IS DRIVEN BY FAME.
  • 00:37:47.080 --> 00:37:50.090
  • AND IF I COULD JUST SIMPLIFY IT, I WOULD SAY
  • 00:37:50.110 --> 00:37:53.000
  • THAT FAME IS WHAT YOU DO FOR YOURSELF AND
  • 00:37:53.020 --> 00:37:55.050
  • GREATNESS IS WHAT YOU DO FOR OTHERS.
  • 00:37:55.070 --> 00:37:57.220
  • SO MANY OF US FEEL SO INSIGNIFICANT THAT WE'RE
  • 00:37:57.240 --> 00:38:00.260
  • DESPERATE TO DIE IN OUR INVISIBILITY SO WE'RE
  • 00:38:00.280 --> 00:38:04.260
  • TRYING TO BE SEEN AND WHAT YOU SEE EVEN IN THE
  • 00:38:04.280 --> 00:38:08.010
  • WORLD OF SOCIAL MEDIA IS THAT PEOPLE ARE DESPERATE
  • 00:38:08.030 --> 00:38:11.020
  • TO BE HEARD, TO BE SEEN, SO THEY'LL DO THE MOST
  • 00:38:11.040 --> 00:38:14.050
  • DESTRUCTIVE AND EVEN DEHUMANIZING THINGS JUST
  • 00:38:14.070 --> 00:38:18.270
  • SO THAT NO ONE WILL DIE WITHOUT BEING KNOWN, AND
  • 00:38:18.290 --> 00:38:26.100
  • THE WARRIOR UNDERSTANDS THAT IT'S NOT IMPORTANT
  • 00:38:26.120 --> 00:38:29.020
  • TO BE SEEN, IT'S IMPORTANT TO BE WORTH BEING SEEN.
  • 00:38:29.040 --> 00:38:32.270
  • IT'S NOT IMPORTANT TO BE REMEMBERED, IT'S
  • 00:38:32.290 --> 00:38:34.160
  • IMPORTANT TO BE WORTH BEING REMEMBERED.
  • 00:38:34.180 --> 00:38:37.000
  • AND I THINK A HUGE PART OF THE POSTURE I WRITE
  • 00:38:37.020 --> 00:38:40.110
  • ABOUT IN THE BOOK IS THAT THE WARRIOR SEEKS
  • 00:38:40.130 --> 00:38:43.190
  • INVISIBILITY, NOT THAT YOU'LL ALWAYS BE INVISIBLE.
  • 00:38:43.210 --> 00:38:46.200
  • YOU MAY SEEK INVISIBILITY JUST TO SERVE OTHER
  • 00:38:46.220 --> 00:38:48.060
  • PEOPLE, JUST TO GIVE YOUR LIFE AWAY.
  • 00:38:48.080 --> 00:38:50.270
  • GOD MAY ACTUALLY PUT A LIGHT ON YOU AND MAKE YOU
  • 00:38:50.290 --> 00:38:53.030
  • VISIBLE, BUT WHEN YOU SEEK TO BE INVISIBLE BY
  • 00:38:53.050 --> 00:38:55.030
  • NOT SEEKING FAME BUT BY SEEKING GREATNESS, BY NOT
  • 00:38:55.050 --> 00:38:58.040
  • TRYING TO BE SPECTACULAR, BUT BY LEARNING TO LIVE
  • 00:38:58.060 --> 00:39:00.160
  • YOUR LIFE BY SERVING OTHERS, DON'T BE
  • 00:39:00.180 --> 00:39:02.200
  • SURPRISED WHEN GOD MAKES YOU VISIBLE BECAUSE
  • 00:39:02.220 --> 00:39:05.010
  • YOU'RE ALREADY VISIBLE IN GOD'S EYES.
  • 00:39:05.030 --> 00:39:06.210
  • AND IN THE MOST POWERFUL WAY, YOU ARE MOST VISIBLE
  • 00:39:06.230 --> 00:39:09.170
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE VISIBLE FROM THE
  • 00:39:09.190 --> 00:39:11.100
  • PERSPECTIVE OF ETERNITY.
  • 00:39:11.120 --> 00:39:14.000
  • BUT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE TRYING SO HARD TO BE SEEN
  • 00:39:14.020 --> 00:39:16.170
  • IN A MOMENT.
  • 00:39:16.190 --> 00:39:18.040
  • WHEN YOU'RE A KID -- WHEN YOU WERE RAISING YOUR
  • 00:39:18.060 --> 00:39:19.270
  • KIDS, AND THEY DIDN'T FEEL LIKE THEY WERE
  • 00:39:19.290 --> 00:39:21.170
  • GETTING THE RIGHT ATTENTION, SO THEY START ACTING UP?
  • 00:39:21.190 --> 00:39:23.030
  • - SURE.
  • 00:39:23.050 --> 00:39:24.190
  • - ISN'T IT FUNNY HOW A LOT OF KIDS ACT OUT WHEN
  • 00:39:24.210 --> 00:39:26.030
  • THEY FEEL LIKE THEIR PARENTS DON'T
  • 00:39:26.050 --> 00:39:27.050
  • PAY THEM ATTENTION?
  • 00:39:27.070 --> 00:39:28.110
  • - YES, YOU DID THAT.
  • 00:39:28.130 --> 00:39:29.200
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:39:29.220 --> 00:39:30.190
  • I WATCHED IT.
  • 00:39:30.210 --> 00:39:32.030
  • - AND THE PROBLEM IS A WILL THE OF PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:39:32.050 --> 00:39:35.080
  • STILL ACTING OUT AS ADULTS.
  • 00:39:35.100 --> 00:39:36.190
  • - YOU DO THAT.
  • 00:39:36.210 --> 00:39:38.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:39:38.030 --> 00:39:41.180
  • - BUT WHEN YOU'RE FREE FROM THE OPINION OF
  • 00:39:41.200 --> 00:39:43.290
  • OTHERS, YOU CAN NOW LIVE YOUR LIFE
  • 00:39:44.010 --> 00:39:46.150
  • WITH YOUR INTENTION.
  • 00:39:46.170 --> 00:39:48.130
  • IT'S THE MOST LIBERATING THING IN THE WORLD WHEN
  • 00:39:48.150 --> 00:39:51.000
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HOW PEOPLE
  • 00:39:51.020 --> 00:39:53.000
  • WILL REMEMBER YOU.
  • 00:39:53.020 --> 00:39:54.170
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:39:54.190 --> 00:39:56.150
  • - BUT WHETHER YOU HAVE A STORY WORTH TELLING.
  • 00:39:56.170 --> 00:39:57.270
  • - I CAN'T GET PAST, ERWIN, THE THOUGHT THAT
  • 00:39:57.290 --> 00:40:03.270
  • THIS BOOK IS MORE SERIOUS ERWIN MCMANNUS PIECE.
  • 00:40:03.290 --> 00:40:10.010
  • THERE IS, I'VE SAID IT EARLIER IN THE BROADCAST,
  • 00:40:10.030 --> 00:40:13.040
  • THERE'S A LIFE AND DEATH KIND OF FEEL TO THIS.
  • 00:40:13.060 --> 00:40:17.030
  • THIS IS LIKE A BOOK THAT NEEDS TO GET TO SOMEONE
  • 00:40:17.050 --> 00:40:22.090
  • THAT YOU WOULDN'T NORMALLY GIVE A BOOK TO.
  • 00:40:22.110 --> 00:40:25.060
  • SOMEBODY IN A VERY TOUGH SITUATION NEEDS
  • 00:40:25.080 --> 00:40:27.270
  • TO READ THIS BOOK.
  • 00:40:27.290 --> 00:40:29.260
  • OKAY, IF SOMEBODY'S LISTENING RIGHT NOW, IF
  • 00:40:29.280 --> 00:40:34.130
  • THERE IS A NUTSHELL OF WHAT YOU WERE TRYING TO
  • 00:40:34.150 --> 00:40:38.000
  • GENERATE IN THE THOUGHT, WHAT WAS THE VERY
  • 00:40:38.020 --> 00:40:41.200
  • SEED OF THIS BOOK?
  • 00:40:41.220 --> 00:40:43.260
  • WHAT WAS THE VERY INTENTION BEHIND THIS
  • 00:40:43.280 --> 00:40:46.260
  • ENTIRE TOME HERE?
  • 00:40:46.280 --> 00:40:50.130
  • - WELL, THE FIRST LANE OF THE BOOK, I WAS
  • 00:40:50.150 --> 00:40:54.070
  • DRIVING DOWN HOLLYWOOD -- DOWN VINE WITH MY WIFE,
  • 00:40:54.090 --> 00:40:57.170
  • AND I CAN'T REALLY FULLY EXPLAIN IT.
  • 00:40:57.190 --> 00:40:59.190
  • I HEARD AN INNER VOICE, AND I HEARD THIS VOICE
  • 00:40:59.210 --> 00:41:02.190
  • SAY TO ME, THE WARRIOR IS NOT READY FOR BATTLE
  • 00:41:02.210 --> 00:41:05.170
  • UNTIL THEY COME TO KNOW PEACE.
  • 00:41:05.190 --> 00:41:07.170
  • THIS IS THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR.
  • 00:41:07.190 --> 00:41:09.170
  • AND I LEANED OVER TO MY WIFE AND I SAID, I KNOW
  • 00:41:09.190 --> 00:41:11.130
  • WHAT MY NEXT BOOK IS, AND I KNOW WHAT THE
  • 00:41:11.150 --> 00:41:12.290
  • FIRST LINE IS.
  • 00:41:13.010 --> 00:41:14.180
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE THE BOOK WAS
  • 00:41:14.200 --> 00:41:16.010
  • GOING TO TAKE ME.
  • 00:41:16.030 --> 00:41:17.170
  • THE FIRST CODE IS THE WARRIOR FIGHTS
  • 00:41:17.190 --> 00:41:18.260
  • ONLY FOR PEACE.
  • 00:41:18.280 --> 00:41:20.190
  • AND I'VE STRUGGLED WITH ALL KINDS OF STUFF, AND I
  • 00:41:20.210 --> 00:41:23.060
  • FELT LIKE IT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT TO BE
  • 00:41:23.080 --> 00:41:25.070
  • TRANSPARENT.
  • 00:41:25.090 --> 00:41:26.210
  • I'M A PERSON WHO STRUGGLED WITH DEPRESSION.
  • 00:41:26.230 --> 00:41:29.260
  • I WAS A REALLY EMOTIONALLY
  • 00:41:29.280 --> 00:41:34.080
  • TROUBLED AS A KID.
  • 00:41:34.100 --> 00:41:35.260
  • I WAS IN PSYCHIATRIC CARE AT THE AGE OF 12.
  • 00:41:35.280 --> 00:41:37.150
  • I HAD AN OVERWHELMING SENSE OF INSIGNIFICANCE,
  • 00:41:37.170 --> 00:41:42.200
  • DISCONNECTION.
  • 00:41:42.220 --> 00:41:44.070
  • I FELT LIKE SOMEHOW I DIDN'T BELONG IN THIS
  • 00:41:44.090 --> 00:41:45.290
  • WORLD, AND I THOUGHT I WAS ALONE
  • 00:41:46.010 --> 00:41:47.200
  • IN THIS FEELING.
  • 00:41:47.220 --> 00:41:49.200
  • AND KNOW, I'VE ALWAYS HAD LIKE MASSIVE STRUGGLES
  • 00:41:49.220 --> 00:41:53.090
  • INSIDE OF MY OWN MIND.
  • 00:41:53.110 --> 00:41:55.040
  • I HAVE THIS THING THAT'S CALLED -- OF A SLOW
  • 00:41:55.060 --> 00:41:59.070
  • NEUROSPEED, WHICH MEANS THAT I CAN'T STOP DATA
  • 00:41:59.090 --> 00:42:01.180
  • AND INFORMATION FROM GOING INTO MY BRAIN, SO I
  • 00:42:01.200 --> 00:42:03.120
  • GET OVERLOADED BY MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF INFORMATION
  • 00:42:03.140 --> 00:42:05.140
  • THAT I CAN'T STOP.
  • 00:42:05.160 --> 00:42:07.190
  • WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER, ESPECIALLY WHEN I WAS
  • 00:42:07.210 --> 00:42:09.290
  • MARRIED TO MY WIFE KIM EARLY ON, SHE WOULD SEE
  • 00:42:10.010 --> 00:42:11.290
  • ME IN A FETAL POSITION BECAUSE I COULDN'T STOP
  • 00:42:12.010 --> 00:42:13.270
  • THE INFORMATION COMING INTO MY BRAIN.
  • 00:42:13.290 --> 00:42:16.020
  • AND THERE'S ONE OF THE IMAGES THAT I USE IN THE
  • 00:42:16.040 --> 00:42:18.130
  • BOOK THAT "HE WAS NOT DRIVEN TO MADNESS BECAUSE
  • 00:42:18.150 --> 00:42:20.100
  • HE COULD COUNT THE RAIN DROPS, BUT BECAUSE HE
  • 00:42:20.120 --> 00:42:22.260
  • COULD COUNT THE SPACES IN BETWEEN THE RAIN DROPS."
  • 00:42:22.280 --> 00:42:24.260
  • I THOUGHT THAT WAS ME.
  • 00:42:24.280 --> 00:42:27.050
  • SO THIS BOOK COST ME A LOT, TO
  • 00:42:27.070 --> 00:42:29.110
  • BE HONEST WITH YOU.
  • 00:42:29.130 --> 00:42:31.130
  • I DIDN'T JUST REMEMBER.
  • 00:42:31.150 --> 00:42:34.000
  • I HAD TO GO THERE, AND I FELT LIKE IT TOOK ME TO A
  • 00:42:34.020 --> 00:42:37.210
  • LOT OF DARK AND PAINFUL AND DISRUPTIVE
  • 00:42:37.230 --> 00:42:41.000
  • PLACES IN MY SOUL.
  • 00:42:41.020 --> 00:42:42.240
  • AND EVERY BOOK FOR ME REALLY MATTERS, AND I
  • 00:42:42.260 --> 00:42:46.110
  • THINK EVERY BOOK I'VE EVER WRITTEN, I'VE TRIED
  • 00:42:46.130 --> 00:42:49.060
  • TO WRITE SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE WORTH THE
  • 00:42:49.080 --> 00:42:51.160
  • READER'S TIME, AND IT WOULD STILL HAVE VALUE A
  • 00:42:51.180 --> 00:42:54.090
  • HUNDRED YEARS FROM NOW OR A THOUSAND
  • 00:42:54.110 --> 00:42:56.070
  • YEARS FROM NOW.
  • 00:42:56.090 --> 00:42:58.040
  • BUT THIS BOOK COST ME THE MOST, AND I THINK PART OF
  • 00:42:58.060 --> 00:43:00.140
  • THE REASON IS I DON'T THINK YOU CAN SPEAK IT A
  • 00:43:00.160 --> 00:43:02.210
  • PERSON IN THEIR PAIN IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO GO
  • 00:43:02.230 --> 00:43:04.090
  • TO YOUR PAIN.
  • 00:43:04.110 --> 00:43:06.030
  • YOU CANNOT HELP A PERSON OUT OF THEIR DESPAIR IF
  • 00:43:06.050 --> 00:43:08.200
  • YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO WALK INTO YOUR OWN.
  • 00:43:08.220 --> 00:43:10.270
  • AND I FEEL LIKE I WAS TAKEN ON A JOURNEY INTO
  • 00:43:10.290 --> 00:43:14.010
  • THE DARKEST PARTS OF MY OWN LIFE SO I COULD BRING
  • 00:43:14.030 --> 00:43:16.110
  • PEOPLE TO LIGHT, TO HELP THEM KNOW THAT THEY'RE
  • 00:43:16.130 --> 00:43:18.210
  • NOT TOO BROKEN TO FIND WHOLENESS.
  • 00:43:18.230 --> 00:43:21.130
  • YOU'RE NOT IN TOO DARK OF A PLACE TO FIND LIGHT.
  • 00:43:21.150 --> 00:43:23.090
  • IT'S NOT TOO LATE.
  • 00:43:23.110 --> 00:43:25.210
  • AND BY THE WAY, YOU'RE NOT ALL ALONE.
  • 00:43:25.230 --> 00:43:28.080
  • THE ONLY REASON YOU FEEL ALONE IS BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:43:28.100 --> 00:43:30.090
  • LOST IN THE DARK, BUT A LOT OF US ARE THERE TOO,
  • 00:43:30.110 --> 00:43:33.100
  • AND IF WE JUST GRAB HOLD OF EACH OTHER, WE CAN
  • 00:43:33.120 --> 00:43:34.270
  • FIND OUR WAY BACK TO LIGHT AGAIN.
  • 00:43:34.290 --> 00:43:36.120
  • - VERY VULNERABLE.
  • 00:43:36.140 --> 00:43:38.040
  • I LOVE THE WAY YOU TALKED ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:43:38.060 --> 00:43:40.160
  • SO WE LOOK AT THE OLD TESTAMENT, AND IT SEEMS
  • 00:43:40.180 --> 00:43:43.070
  • LIKE GOD IS A GOD OF WAR, BUT HE WAS ACTUALLY
  • 00:43:43.090 --> 00:43:45.120
  • FIGHTING FOR PEACE.
  • 00:43:45.140 --> 00:43:47.210
  • - YES! OH, I GET SO MANY PEOPLE WHO COME TO HOLLYWOOD AND
  • 00:43:47.230 --> 00:43:51.080
  • SAY, I LIKE JESUS, BUT I REALLY DON'T LIKE THE GOD
  • 00:43:51.100 --> 00:43:53.150
  • OF THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:43:53.170 --> 00:43:55.150
  • AND THEY THINK THERE'S TWO DID HE HAVE GODS, OR
  • 00:43:55.170 --> 00:43:58.280
  • GOD HAD REAL ISSUES, WENT TO THERAPY, AND
  • 00:43:59.000 --> 00:44:01.220
  • CAME BACK AS JESUS.
  • 00:44:01.240 --> 00:44:03.110
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:44:03.130 --> 00:44:05.290
  • I'M GOING, NO, NO.
  • 00:44:06.010 --> 00:44:08.230
  • LOOK I HAD A FRIEND ONE TIME WHO WAS AT THE TOP
  • 00:44:08.250 --> 00:44:10.170
  • STORY OF A MALL.
  • 00:44:10.190 --> 00:44:12.240
  • HE SAW A MAN ROBBING A WOMAN OF HER PURSE
  • 00:44:12.260 --> 00:44:15.080
  • AND BEATING HER.
  • 00:44:15.100 --> 00:44:17.060
  • HE'S A FORMER...
  • 00:44:17.080 --> 00:44:19.050
  • - NAVY SEAL?
  • 00:44:19.070 --> 00:44:21.000
  • - YEAH, AND RUNS DOWN THE STAIRS, KNOCKS THE
  • 00:44:21.020 --> 00:44:25.090
  • GUY OUT, BASICALLY. THE GUY GETS UP AND RUNS.
  • 00:44:25.110 --> 00:44:28.050
  • HE GRABS THE WOMAN'S PURSE.
  • 00:44:28.070 --> 00:44:30.070
  • HE GIVES HER HER PURSE.
  • 00:44:30.090 --> 00:44:32.090
  • SHE'S SO PANICKING, SHE THINKS HE'S THE THIEF AND
  • 00:44:32.110 --> 00:44:35.050
  • STARTS SCREAMING. HE GETS ARRESTED.
  • 00:44:35.070 --> 00:44:38.150
  • - OH, NO.
  • 00:44:38.170 --> 00:44:40.210
  • CAN WE LOOK AT THE CAMERAS, PLEASE?
  • 00:44:40.230 --> 00:44:43.110
  • - HIS REPUTATION GETS DESTROYED BECAUSE HE
  • 00:44:43.130 --> 00:44:47.180
  • INTERVENES TO SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE.
  • 00:44:47.200 --> 00:44:49.110
  • - OH, NO.
  • 00:44:49.130 --> 00:44:51.150
  • - THAT'S GOD. GOD'S REPUTATION HAS BEEN TAINTED
  • 00:44:51.170 --> 00:44:56.180
  • BECAUSE HE REFUSED TO LEAVE US ALONE.
  • 00:44:56.200 --> 00:44:58.210
  • - OH, MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:44:58.230 --> 00:45:00.150
  • - HE STEPPED IN TO INTERVENE FOR US, TO
  • 00:45:00.170 --> 00:45:02.290
  • FIGHT FOR US, AND WE KEEP THINKING HE'S THE ONE
  • 00:45:03.010 --> 00:45:05.030
  • FIGHTING AGAINST US.
  • 00:45:05.050 --> 00:45:06.260
  • SO I OPEN THIS BOOK BY SAYING, NO,
  • 00:45:06.280 --> 00:45:08.190
  • GOD IS NOT VIOLENT.
  • 00:45:08.210 --> 00:45:11.070
  • GOD IS A GOD OF PEACE.
  • 00:45:11.090 --> 00:45:13.270
  • BUT WE ARE A PEOPLE OF VIOLENCE, AND GOD STEPPED
  • 00:45:13.290 --> 00:45:16.090
  • INTO OUR VIOLENCE, AND HE ALLOWS HIMSELF TO BE
  • 00:45:16.110 --> 00:45:19.010
  • TAINTED BY US TO FIGHT FOR US.
  • 00:45:19.030 --> 00:45:21.090
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:45:21.110 --> 00:45:23.250
  • - THE LITTLE MUSIC CUE THAT JUST STARTED
  • 00:45:23.270 --> 00:45:27.230
  • INDICATES THAT TIME IN THE PROGRAM THAT
  • 00:45:27.250 --> 00:45:31.100
  • YOU LOVE SO MUCH.
  • 00:45:31.120 --> 00:45:33.050
  • - THAT I LOVE SO MUCH.
  • 00:45:33.070 --> 00:45:35.100
  • - AND SOMETHING THAT TBN DOESN'T -- WE DON'T LIKE
  • 00:45:35.120 --> 00:45:40.280
  • TO ACCOMPLISH ONE OF THESE PROGRAMS,
  • 00:45:41.000 --> 00:45:43.120
  • ESPECIALLY WITH ERWIN MCMANNUS, WHERE WE DON'T
  • 00:45:43.140 --> 00:45:46.020
  • LET HIM LOOK INTO THE CAMERA AND TALK TO YOU
  • 00:45:46.040 --> 00:45:48.040
  • ABOUT THIS PERSON JESUS, WHICH IS THE
  • 00:45:48.060 --> 00:45:50.160
  • ANSWER TO EVERYTHING.
  • 00:45:50.180 --> 00:45:54.220
  • THE "WAY OF THE WARRIOR"IS OUR OFFER.
  • 00:45:54.240 --> 00:45:57.210
  • THE ANSWER IS JESUS.
  • 00:45:57.230 --> 00:46:00.050
  • AND JUST INVITE PEOPLE THAT ARE IN
  • 00:46:00.070 --> 00:46:01.210
  • THAT DARK PLACE.
  • 00:46:01.230 --> 00:46:04.110
  • THEY'RE LISTENING TO YOU NOW, AND THEY NEED TO
  • 00:46:04.130 --> 00:46:06.280
  • HEAR THAT THERE'S HOPE.
  • 00:46:07.000 --> 00:46:10.030
  • - WELL, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I THINK IS
  • 00:46:10.050 --> 00:46:12.250
  • INTERESTING IS WHEN I SENT THE BOOK TO THE
  • 00:46:12.270 --> 00:46:14.240
  • PUBLISHER, THEY CAME BACK AND TOLD ME THEY WERE SO
  • 00:46:14.260 --> 00:46:16.270
  • SURPRISED THAT I TALKED ABOUT JESUS SO MUCH.
  • 00:46:16.290 --> 00:46:18.160
  • AND I SAID, IN SOME WAYS, I WAS, TOO, BECAUSE WHEN
  • 00:46:18.180 --> 00:46:24.060
  • I WRITE, I JUST START BY TRYING TO DEAL WITH TRUTH
  • 00:46:24.080 --> 00:46:26.200
  • AND LET IT TAKE ME WHEREVER IT GOES.
  • 00:46:26.220 --> 00:46:28.290
  • AND WHAT I KEPT FINDING IS THAT EVERY TIME I
  • 00:46:29.010 --> 00:46:32.130
  • WOULD UNWRAP A PATH TO PEACE, IT WOULD ALWAYS
  • 00:46:32.150 --> 00:46:34.030
  • RUN ME RIGHT INTO JESUS.
  • 00:46:34.050 --> 00:46:36.010
  • I DON'T THINK IT'S AN ACCIDENT THAT THERE ARE
  • 00:46:36.030 --> 00:46:39.020
  • CERTAIN PEOPLE THROUGHOUT HISTORY, WHEN YOU THINK
  • 00:46:39.040 --> 00:46:41.240
  • ABOUT THEM OR THINK ABOUT THE WORLD THEY WERE IN,
  • 00:46:41.260 --> 00:46:44.040
  • THEY RISE TO THE SURFACE.
  • 00:46:44.060 --> 00:46:46.000
  • IF IT'S ART, IT MIGHT BE PICASSO, OR IF IT'S
  • 00:46:46.020 --> 00:46:47.270
  • MUSIC, MAYBE IT'S THE BEATLES.
  • 00:46:47.290 --> 00:46:49.250
  • IF IT'S GOLF, MAYBE IT'S TIGER WOODS, OR
  • 00:46:49.270 --> 00:46:52.270
  • BASKETBALL, IT'S MICHAEL JORDAN.
  • 00:46:52.290 --> 00:46:54.200
  • BUT IF YOU'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT PEACE, IF
  • 00:46:54.220 --> 00:46:58.140
  • YOU'RE GOING TO FIND A WAY THROUGH DESPAIR AND
  • 00:46:58.160 --> 00:47:01.010
  • DEPRESSION, IF YOU'RE GOING TO FIND HOPE TO
  • 00:47:01.030 --> 00:47:03.270
  • CALM THE TURMOIL INSIDE OF YOUR SOUL, IT'S JESUS.
  • 00:47:03.290 --> 00:47:09.090
  • AND I WOULD SAY TO YOU THAT I THINK SOMETIMES
  • 00:47:09.110 --> 00:47:11.100
  • JESUS GETS LOST IN ALL THE IMPERFECTION OF
  • 00:47:11.120 --> 00:47:14.260
  • PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO BELIEVE IN JESUS, AND
  • 00:47:14.280 --> 00:47:17.270
  • THEN YOU LOOK AT US, AND YOU THINK, WELL, WE'RE
  • 00:47:17.290 --> 00:47:19.250
  • NOT LIVING UP TO THE STANDARDS THAT
  • 00:47:19.270 --> 00:47:21.180
  • WE SHOULD BE LIVING.
  • 00:47:21.200 --> 00:47:23.050
  • I JUST WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE
  • 00:47:23.070 --> 00:47:24.240
  • REASON THAT'S TRUE IS BECAUSE EVERY PERSON WHO
  • 00:47:24.260 --> 00:47:27.010
  • BELIEVES IN JESUS, EVERY PERSON WHO FOLLOWS JESUS,
  • 00:47:27.030 --> 00:47:29.230
  • IS A BROKEN, IMPERFECT PERSON WHO'S TRYING TO
  • 00:47:29.250 --> 00:47:32.070
  • MAKE SENSE OF LIFE AND TRYING TO DO LIFE, TOO.
  • 00:47:32.090 --> 00:47:35.150
  • AND I WOULD JUST SAY THAT I'M NOT THE MEASURE OF
  • 00:47:35.170 --> 00:47:38.120
  • WHO JESUS IS, BUT HE IS ABSOLUTELY THE HOPE OF
  • 00:47:38.140 --> 00:47:41.020
  • EVERYTHING THAT I'VE BECOME.
  • 00:47:41.040 --> 00:47:43.090
  • AND IF YOU'RE HERE, AND YOU'RE JUST STRUGGLING,
  • 00:47:43.110 --> 00:47:45.200
  • IF YOU KNOW THERE'S SOMETHING MISSING IN YOUR
  • 00:47:45.220 --> 00:47:47.270
  • LIFE, I WOULD JUST ENCOURAGE YOU TO FIND
  • 00:47:47.290 --> 00:47:50.030
  • YOUR WAY TO WHO JESUS IS, TO FIND A WAY TO GET TO
  • 00:47:50.050 --> 00:47:52.000
  • HIS MESSAGE BECAUSE JESUS IS THE PEACE YOU'RE
  • 00:47:52.020 --> 00:47:54.080
  • SEARCHING FOR.
  • 00:47:54.100 --> 00:47:55.270
  • HE'S THE HOPE YOUR SOUL IS LONGING FOR.
  • 00:47:55.290 --> 00:47:57.270
  • AND I JUST WANT YOU TO NOT GIVE UP BECAUSE HE'S
  • 00:47:57.290 --> 00:48:00.040
  • FIGHTING FOR YOU, SO DON'T GIVE UP ON THIS FIGHT.
  • 00:48:00.060 --> 00:48:02.220

  • I WANT YOU TO MAKE SURE YOU SUMMARIZE THE BOOK

  • THE WAY YOU WANT TO.
  • 00:50:14.040 --> 00:50:15.240
  • BUT I HAVE ONE FIND PIECE THAT I UNDERLINED WHEN
  • 00:50:15.260 --> 00:50:18.060
  • HE WAS READING IT EARLIER LAST WEEK.
  • 00:50:18.080 --> 00:50:20.110
  • "WHEN YOU RUN FROM THE BATTLES YOU MUST FIGHT,
  • 00:50:20.130 --> 00:50:23.100
  • EVENTUALLY YOUR JOURNEY WILL TAKE YOU FULL CIRCLE
  • 00:50:23.120 --> 00:50:26.030
  • BACK TO THEM." OKAY, SO I WANT YOU TO ADDRESS THAT.
  • 00:50:26.050 --> 00:50:29.270
  • "THERE ARE BATTLES YOU MUST FIGHT, WOUNDS YOU
  • 00:50:29.290 --> 00:50:32.090
  • MUST BEAR, SCARS THAT YOU MUST CARRY.
  • 00:50:32.110 --> 00:50:36.140
  • TO RUN FROM THE BATTLE IS SIMPLY TO DELAY THE
  • 00:50:36.160 --> 00:50:38.250
  • INEVITABLE." I LOVE THIS.
  • 00:50:38.270 --> 00:50:41.250
  • LITERALLY, HOW MUCH MORE CLEAR COULD YOU MAKE IT?
  • 00:50:41.270 --> 00:50:44.150
  • "IT'S NOT THAT GOD CALLOUSLY INSISTS THAT
  • 00:50:44.170 --> 00:50:47.190
  • YOU FACE ANOTHER STRUGGLE.
  • 00:50:47.210 --> 00:50:49.210
  • IT'S THAT GOD REFUSES TO ALLOW YOU TO SURRENDER TO
  • 00:50:49.230 --> 00:50:54.000
  • A LESSER LIFE THAN THE ONE YOU WERE CREATED TO
  • 00:50:54.020 --> 00:50:57.230
  • LIVE." YOU'RE CALLING TO US
  • 00:50:57.250 --> 00:51:01.040
  • TO BECOME SOMETHING MORE.
  • 00:51:01.060 --> 00:51:03.180
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:51:03.200 --> 00:51:05.120
  • - YOU'RE CALLING TO US.
  • 00:51:05.140 --> 00:51:07.150
  • YOU'RE BEGGING US IN THIS BOOK TO STOP BLAMING

  • TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND COME UP HIGHER
  • 00:51:17.020 --> 00:51:19.190
  • TO A NEW LIFE.
  • 00:51:19.210 --> 00:51:20.240
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:51:20.260 --> 00:51:22.190
  • - YOU'RE SCREAMING THAT IN THESE PAGES, BUT I
  • 00:51:22.210 --> 00:51:25.050
  • WANT YOU TO KIND OF DO YOUR OWN WRAP UP.
  • 00:51:25.070 --> 00:51:29.200
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO KNOW ABOUT THIS BOOK?
  • 00:51:29.220 --> 00:51:33.020
  • AND WHY IT'S GOING TO HELP PEOPLE.
  • 00:51:33.040 --> 00:51:34.240
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:51:34.260 --> 00:51:37.120
  • I THINK THIS IS THE TENTH BOOK I'VE EVER WRITTEN,
  • 00:51:37.140 --> 00:51:39.150
  • ASK IT'S PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK
  • 00:51:39.170 --> 00:51:41.060
  • I'VE EVER WRITTEN.
  • 00:51:41.080 --> 00:51:43.210
  • I'VE ALREADY BEEN RECEIVING MESSAGES FROM
  • 00:51:43.230 --> 00:51:48.060
  • INSTAGRAM AND TWITTER, AND I'VE HAD PEOPLE SAY
  • 00:51:48.080 --> 00:51:52.060
  • TO ME, I WALKED IN, AND I HEARD THE
  • 00:51:52.080 --> 00:51:54.110
  • MESSAGE OF THIS BOOK.
  • 00:51:54.130 --> 00:51:56.030
  • I CAME IN TO KILL MYSELF, AND I WALKED OUT WITH HOPE.
  • 00:51:56.050 --> 00:51:59.030
  • - PRAISE JESUS.
  • 00:51:59.050 --> 00:52:01.020
  • - I'VE HAD PEOPLE JUST CONSTANTLY SENDING
  • 00:52:01.040 --> 00:52:02.240
  • ME NOTES, AND IT'S ONLY BEEN OUT A FEW WEEKS,
  • 00:52:02.260 --> 00:52:05.010
  • TELLING ME HOW THEY HAD COME TO THE END OF THEIR
  • 00:52:05.030 --> 00:52:07.030
  • LIVES, OR THE END OF THEIR MARRIAGE, AND THE
  • 00:52:07.050 --> 00:52:10.120
  • BOOK HAS ALREADY TURNED THEIR COURSE OF ACTION.
  • 00:52:10.140 --> 00:52:13.120
  • I AM SO CONVINCED THAT WE HAVE AN EPIDEMIC IN
  • 00:52:13.140 --> 00:52:17.070
  • OUR CULTURE, THAT WE HAVE A
  • 00:52:17.090 --> 00:52:20.000
  • CULTURE PARALYZED BY FEAR.
  • 00:52:20.020 --> 00:52:22.120
  • WE HAVE A LANGUAGE OF PHOBIAS.
  • 00:52:22.140 --> 00:52:24.120
  • OUR KNOWLEDGE OF MENTAL ILLNESS NOW HAS
  • 00:52:24.140 --> 00:52:27.110
  • BECOME PH.D LEVEL.
  • 00:52:27.130 --> 00:52:29.010
  • EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BIPOLAR
  • 00:52:29.030 --> 00:52:30.230
  • OR O.C.D. OR A.D.H.D.
  • 00:52:30.250 --> 00:52:32.210
  • OR MANIC DEPRESSIVE OR SCHIZOPHRENIC.
  • 00:52:32.230 --> 00:52:34.180
  • WE HAVE SO MUCH LANGUAGE NOW BECAUSE WE HAVE SO
  • 00:52:34.200 --> 00:52:37.240
  • MUCH BROKENNESS.
  • 00:52:37.260 --> 00:52:39.200
  • AND WHAT I WOULD SAY IS I WROTE THIS BOOK BECAUSE
  • 00:52:39.220 --> 00:52:41.250
  • I'M ABSOLUTELY CONVINCED THAT IN ARE PEACE, THAT
  • 00:52:41.270 --> 00:52:44.230
  • WHOLENESS, THAT HEALTH, IS NOT JUST AN ILLUSION.
  • 00:52:44.250 --> 00:52:47.170
  • IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE CAN HAVE NOW
  • 00:52:47.190 --> 00:52:49.060
  • IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:52:49.080 --> 00:52:50.290
  • BUT IT'S NOT A PERMANENT STATE OF BEING BECAUSE
  • 00:52:51.010 --> 00:52:55.210
  • LIFE IS FULL OF CHALLENGES, AND LIFE IS
  • 00:52:55.230 --> 00:52:57.270
  • FULL OF PAIN, AND LIFE IS FULL OF DISAPPOINTMENTS.
  • 00:52:57.290 --> 00:53:00.060
  • AND ONE DAY YOU'RE FEELING GREAT, THE NEXT
  • 00:53:00.080 --> 00:53:02.070
  • DAY THE WORLD FALLS APART FOR YOU.
  • 00:53:02.090 --> 00:53:04.040
  • SO THIS IS AWE DAILY BATTLE.
  • 00:53:04.060 --> 00:53:06.060
  • YOU HAVE TO HAVE A POSTURE FOR LIFE.
  • 00:53:06.080 --> 00:53:08.200
  • YOU DON'T JUST BREATHE ONCE.
  • 00:53:08.220 --> 00:53:10.190
  • YOU BREATHE EVERY SECOND OF YOUR LIFE , AND YOU
  • 00:53:10.210 --> 00:53:13.060
  • DON'T JUST FIGHT FOR PEACE ONCE.
  • 00:53:13.080 --> 00:53:15.200
  • YOU HAVE TO DECIDE 'I'M GOING TO LOVE THIS LIFE
  • 00:53:15.220 --> 00:53:18.090
  • IN SUCH A WAY WHERE MY INNER WORLD WILL FIND
  • 00:53:18.110 --> 00:53:20.220
  • WHOLENESS AND HEALTH. AND WHEN YOU HAVE PEACE,
  • 00:53:20.240 --> 00:53:23.050
  • THEN YOU CAN BRING PEACE, OR YOU HAVE HOPE, THEN
  • 00:53:23.070 --> 00:53:25.120
  • YOU CAN GIVE HOPE.
  • 00:53:25.140 --> 00:53:27.140
  • WHEN YOU HAVE JOY, THEN YOU CAN BRING JOY.
  • 00:53:27.160 --> 00:53:30.080
  • WHEN YOU'RE FULLY ALIVE, THEN YOU CAN GIVE LIFE.
  • 00:53:30.100 --> 00:53:33.080
  • AND WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS MOST FROM EVERY PERSON
  • 00:53:33.100 --> 00:53:35.200
  • IS FOR YOU TO BE FULLY ALIVE.
  • 00:53:35.220 --> 00:53:38.080
  • AND WHEN YOU'RE FULLY ALIVE, YOU OVERFLOW WITH
  • 00:53:38.100 --> 00:53:40.280
  • LIFE, AND YOU POUR LIFE INTO OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:53:41.000 --> 00:53:43.110
  • AND BY THE WAY, I AM CONVINCED
  • 00:53:43.130 --> 00:53:44.270
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS DID.
  • 00:53:44.290 --> 00:53:46.180
  • HE IS THE FULLNESS OF LIFE, AND WHEN HE DIED ON
  • 00:53:46.200 --> 00:53:49.170
  • THE CROSS, AND HIS BODY WAS BROKEN, THAT LIFE
  • 00:53:49.190 --> 00:53:51.230
  • JUST POURED INTO EVERYONE WHO WOULD RECEIVE IT.
  • 00:53:51.250 --> 00:53:55.050
  • - THE "WAY OF THE WARRIOR" IS THE
  • 00:53:55.070 --> 00:53:57.060
  • TITLE OF THE BOOK.
  • 00:53:57.080 --> 00:53:58.250
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:53:58.270 --> 00:54:00.150
  • - WHAT ARE YOU FIGHTING FOR?
  • 00:54:00.170 --> 00:54:02.010
  • - I'M FIGHTING FOR INNER PEACE.
  • 00:54:02.030 --> 00:54:04.050
  • I'M FIGHTING SO THAT EVERY PERSON CAN LIVE A
  • 00:54:04.070 --> 00:54:07.060
  • LIFE OF FULLNESS.
  • 00:54:07.080 --> 00:54:08.250
  • IN THE SAME WAY THAT JESUS SPOKE TO THE WIND
  • 00:54:08.270 --> 00:54:11.000
  • AND THE WAVES AND SAID, PEACE BE STILL, I'M
  • 00:54:11.020 --> 00:54:12.250
  • FIGHTING SO THAT EVERY PERSON CAN HAVE JESUS
  • 00:54:12.270 --> 00:54:15.000
  • SPEAK THOSE WORDS TO THEM AND LIVE THE LIFE THAT
  • 00:54:15.020 --> 00:54:17.220
  • ARE CREATED TO LIVE.
  • 00:54:17.240 --> 00:54:19.130
  • I WAKE UP EVERY DAY -- IT'S CRAZY WITH ALL THE
  • 00:54:19.150 --> 00:54:21.230
  • PRESSURE IN OUR LIVES, WITH ALL THE CHALLENGES
  • 00:54:21.250 --> 00:54:24.030
  • AND ALL THE CHAOS, I ALMOST FEEL EMBARRASSED
  • 00:54:24.050 --> 00:54:26.170
  • BECAUSE I LOVE LIFE SO MUCH.
  • 00:54:26.190 --> 00:54:28.220
  • WHEN YOU'RE FULLY ALIVE, COLORS ARE MORE
  • 00:54:28.240 --> 00:54:31.230
  • BEAUTIFUL, FLAVORS ARE MORE POWERFUL, AROMAS ARE
  • 00:54:31.250 --> 00:54:34.050
  • MORE BRILLIANT.
  • 00:54:34.070 --> 00:54:35.270
  • WHEN YOU'RE FULLY ALIVE, YOU FEEL THE WONDER OF A
  • 00:54:35.290 --> 00:54:38.160
  • RELATIONSHIP AND YOUR LOVE.
  • 00:54:38.180 --> 00:54:40.140
  • YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE WHEN YOU ARE
  • 00:54:40.160 --> 00:54:42.200
  • FULLY IN LOVE.
  • 00:54:42.220 --> 00:54:44.100
  • IT CHANGES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:54:44.120 --> 00:54:46.140
  • AND MY HOPE IN THE "WAY OF THE WARRIOR"IS NOT
  • 00:54:46.160 --> 00:54:49.100
  • JUST THAT A PERSON FEELS LIKE SOMEONE
  • 00:54:49.120 --> 00:54:51.060
  • UNDERSTANDS THEM.
  • 00:54:51.080 --> 00:54:52.260
  • MY HOPE IS THAT ONE DAY SOMEONE WILL GET THROUGH
  • 00:54:52.280 --> 00:54:54.210
  • THE PROCESS, TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND SAY, "WOW,
  • 00:54:54.230 --> 00:54:56.160
  • THIS IS THE LIFE I'VE ALWAYS LONGED FOR.
  • 00:54:56.180 --> 00:54:59.140
  • I ALWAYS HOPED I COULD GET THERE, BUT NOW I'M
  • 00:54:59.160 --> 00:55:02.100
  • LIVING WITH THIS NEW ERA IN MY LIFE."
  • 00:55:02.120 --> 00:55:04.260
  • - WHAT'S THE MOST COMMON OBSTACLE TO THAT LIFE THAT
  • 00:55:04.280 --> 00:55:10.040
  • YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT AND BECKONING US TO?
  • 00:55:10.060 --> 00:55:13.040
  • - YOU KEEP WANTING IT TO HAPPEN, BUT YOU NEVER
  • 00:55:13.060 --> 00:55:16.060
  • MAKE THE DECISIONS TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
  • 00:55:16.080 --> 00:55:18.200
  • I TOLD A GROUP OF COLLEGE STUDENTS.
  • 00:55:18.220 --> 00:55:21.130
  • THEY SAID, WHAT'S YOUR ONE PIECE OF
  • 00:55:21.150 --> 00:55:23.010
  • ADVICE FOR THIS WEEK?
  • 00:55:23.030 --> 00:55:24.180
  • AND I SAID, "WHATEVER YOU KNOW TO DO, DO IT RIGHT
  • 00:55:24.200 --> 00:55:28.270
  • NOW AND DO IT FAST." IF YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO
  • 00:55:28.290 --> 00:55:32.250
  • CHANGE, THEN INVEST IN YOURSELF.
  • 00:55:32.270 --> 00:55:35.170
  • GET INTO YOU WHAT YOU NEED.
  • 00:55:35.190 --> 00:55:38.010
  • GOD CAN DO THE WORK, BUT HE WILL NOT DO FOR YOU
  • 00:55:38.030 --> 00:55:41.000
  • WHAT YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO STEP INTO FOR YOURSELF.
  • 00:55:41.020 --> 00:55:43.140
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:55:43.160 --> 00:55:51.050
  • - WHAT WAS ERWIN MCMANNUS' HARDEST
  • 00:55:51.070 --> 00:55:56.040
  • CHALLENGE TO GET TO THE POINT WHERE YOU
  • 00:55:56.060 --> 00:55:58.010
  • WERE A WARRIOR?
  • 00:55:58.030 --> 00:56:00.080
  • - THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.
  • 00:56:00.100 --> 00:56:04.010
  • YOU KNOW, I WAS ALWAYS PARALYZED BY FEAR.
  • 00:56:04.030 --> 00:56:09.130
  • I THOUGHT I HAD THE DNA OF A COWARD.
  • 00:56:09.150 --> 00:56:12.080
  • THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE WHEN ARE HEROIC.
  • 00:56:12.100 --> 00:56:14.140
  • I THINK MY BIGGEST CHALLENGE WAS BELIEVING
  • 00:56:14.160 --> 00:56:18.030
  • THAT I WAS THE SAME MATERIAL FROM WHICH
  • 00:56:18.050 --> 00:56:21.090
  • HEROES COME, AND TO BELIEVE THAT JESUS COULD
  • 00:56:21.110 --> 00:56:25.210
  • TURN ME INTO THE KIND OF PERSON I ALWAYS
  • 00:56:25.230 --> 00:56:27.250
  • LONGED TO BE.
  • 00:56:27.270 --> 00:56:29.210
  • I WANTED TO BE A CERTAIN KIND OF PERSON.
  • 00:56:29.230 --> 00:56:31.200
  • I WANTED TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT
  • 00:56:31.220 --> 00:56:33.050
  • ON THE WORLD.
  • 00:56:33.070 --> 00:56:34.240
  • I WANTED TO LOVE A HEROIC LIFE.
  • 00:56:34.260 --> 00:56:36.140
  • I WANTED TO LIVE A LIFE OF COURAGE AND HONOR.
  • 00:56:36.160 --> 00:56:38.080
  • I JUST DIDN'T THINK THAT I HAD THE RIGHT MATERIAL
  • 00:56:38.100 --> 00:56:40.090
  • INSIDE OF ME TO BE ANY OF THAT, AND IRONICALLY, I
  • 00:56:40.110 --> 00:56:43.150
  • THINK THE GREATEST OBSTACLE WAS THAT I DID
  • 00:56:43.170 --> 00:56:45.270
  • NOT BELIEVE THAT MY LAUGH WAS WORTH THAT
  • 00:56:45.290 --> 00:56:48.050
  • KIND OF STORY.
  • 00:56:48.070 --> 00:56:53.110
  • AND WHEN I HEARD THIS POSSIBILITY, THAT JESUS
  • 00:56:53.130 --> 00:56:57.290
  • CREATED ME FOR HIMSELF THAT GOD CREATED ME WITH
  • 00:56:58.010 --> 00:57:01.240
  • INTENTION AND PURPOSE, THAT MY LIFE WAS NOT
  • 00:57:01.260 --> 00:57:04.010
  • INSIGNIFICANT, THAT I ACTUALLY MATTERED, THAT
  • 00:57:04.030 --> 00:57:07.180
  • GOD SAW ME AND HE KNEW ME, AND HE WAS WAITING
  • 00:57:07.200 --> 00:57:11.150
  • FOR ME TO BELIEVE IN WHAT HE SAW IN ME -- I USED TO
  • 00:57:11.170 --> 00:57:16.090
  • WAIT FOR PEOPLE TO CHOOSE ME.
  • 00:57:16.110 --> 00:57:17.240
  • I'D ALWAYS BE THE LAST PERSON CHOSEN ON EVERY TEAM.
  • 00:57:17.260 --> 00:57:20.170
  • AND I WOKE UP ONE DAY, AND I THOUGHT?
  • 00:57:20.190 --> 00:57:21.270
  • YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:57:21.290 --> 00:57:23.170
  • I COULD SPEND MY WHOLE LIFE WAITING FOR SOMEONE
  • 00:57:23.190 --> 00:57:25.050
  • TO CHOOSE ME, OR I CAN CHOOSE MYSELF.
  • 00:57:25.070 --> 00:57:26.260
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT'S MORE POWERFUL?
  • 00:57:26.280 --> 00:57:28.140
  • WHEN YOU WAKE UP ONE DAY, AND YOU GO, OH, WOW.
  • 00:57:28.160 --> 00:57:30.000
  • GOD CHOSE ME.
  • 00:57:30.020 --> 00:57:31.110
  • IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER.
  • 00:57:31.130 --> 00:57:32.260
  • - IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER.
  • 00:57:32.280 --> 00:57:34.100
  • - WHAT ANYBODY ELSE CHOOSES.
  • 00:57:34.120 --> 00:57:36.080
  • - WOW, IT IS THE "WAY OF THE WARRIOR".
  • 00:57:36.100 --> 00:57:40.190
  • THERE'S A NUMBER ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:57:40.210 --> 00:57:42.060
  • I'M GOING TO STAND UP, AND I WANT YOU TO STAND
  • 00:57:42.080 --> 00:57:44.080
  • UP WITH ME, AND AS WE FINISH THIS PROGRAM, I
  • 00:57:44.100 --> 00:57:47.050
  • JUST WANT TO HAND YOU THE ACADEMY AWARD OF THE
  • 00:57:47.070 --> 00:57:51.030
  • "WAY OF THE WARRIOR".
  • 00:57:51.050 --> 00:57:52.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:57:52.280 --> 00:57:56.040
  • - IS THIS REALLY FOR ME?
  • 00:57:56.060 --> 00:57:57.180
  • - YEAH. THIS IS --
  • 00:57:57.200 --> 00:57:59.000
  • - EPIC.
  • 00:57:59.020 --> 00:58:02.070
  • - THIS IS THE WARRIOR AWARD FOR ERWIN MCMANNUS.
  • 00:58:02.090 --> 00:58:04.260
  • SEE YOU NEXT TIME, BYE BYE.
  • 00:58:04.280 --> 00:58:06.210
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:58:06.230 --> 00:58:19.210
