BE POSITIVE

May 20, 2017

Hi guys, we are leaving the circus.  That was fun. 146 years they’ve been doing the circus. That’s it, that’s the end of it. All those mistreated circus folk don’t have to put up with that anymore.  What we’re gonna do real quick is just talk about your attitude.  Having the right attitude as being a successful entrepreneur.  I got a few successful entrepreneurs right here. I got Stu, I got Mr. Wayne, and I got Mr. Snyder here.  How do you maintain a positive attitude when you show up at the wrong venue, two hours away at a different stadium?  How do we maintain that positive attitude when something goes wrong?  Today we planned it perfectly to get to the circus. We got the three kids all excited to see the last circus that Michael told us about.  The very last circus. We go to the Brooklyn Barclay center, and it’s not there. It’s out here in Long Island. At the Coliseum. So we could have had a bad attitude, right? We could have got all ticked off and said, “Hey, we missed half the circus”, or we could get an Uber.  Then get here in time and still have a blast, and the kids had no idea they missed something. They’re having a blast. Jumping up and down.  Got lights spinning in our face. Only because we turned it around. It was our attitude. We messed up, but let’s make the best of it. That’s what it really comes down to.

I’ve always been a fan of attitude.  The way I looked at it was that I’ve got a one-up on Stu. That was like a major detour.  I mean, we get off the train. There’s the stadium, we noticed something. There are no people. It was a little sparse.  It’s probably not the right place. He looks at his ticket. He goes, “Hey, we’re going on an epic adventure to Long Island”. I was like, “right on man. Another epic adventure. Bring it on”. Then it was a wonderful evening. We had a great time. We got here for the best part, the motorcycles.  Motorcycles in a cage. Who makes this stuff up? A couple of drunk guys betting on each other. That’s what it was. You put seven motorcycles in a little bitty iron ball cage and have them race around each other. One little slip and its spelling formula for disaster.  It was insane. 

It started right here in New York, and that’s where it ends. It started right in Coney Island where they started going around a little motorcycle dome and then put a cage on it.  These are people that are easily entertained. Remember, no matter what happens, maintain a positive attitude. Always look on the bright side of things. Alright, guys have a great night. We’ll see you tomorrow. Bye, everybody.
