Speaker 2: Here is your host, Dave Woodward. Hey Every welcome back to funnel hacker radio. This is going to be kind of a crazy episode. I am literally in my sister's House in Utah with my son Chandler. It's early in the morning. Everyone else's sound asleep. We're just coming back from spring break. We've been down in Moab, Utah, uh, literally enjoying the beautiful surroundings of Moab and arches and uh, just spent a couple of days down there on razors, driving all over the crazy rocks, hiking, mountain bike riding Can's back of superstore because got beat up yesterday and I'm just sore because I'm not a shape. But anyways. Well we thought his mood actually, oh, Shannon brought this up to me that week and a half ago and I've been thinking about all weekend. You know what, I need to do a podcast about this. So the topic we want to talk about is how do you actually control belief? Now there's a couple of different ideas and theories behind this, but I think Chandler said it best. A laughter, listen to podcasts from Stevens. All right.
Speaker 3: Yeah. Yeah. So Steven was talking about it and um, after reading this book called, uh, from Ryan holiday, it talks about this concept of um, whoever controls content controls belief. And one of my favorite ways to think about that is, uh, and he actually mentioned it as well as, as both being religious people and uh, actually going out and like we actually went out and actually, so I spent two years serving a mission for my church. And on that mission we, we taught people, taught people, and those entities see people who would believe we're the ones who are consuming the content. And you think of anyone who goes into disbelief. I think any religion, think of anything you're doing, it's because you're not consuming that content. You're not consuming that thinks. And so when we thought a lot about this podcast was talking about exactly like how do you control belief in people. And actually I was thinking this is a super cool as well, is when you were, um, I had a chance to go and actually look at your, um, the legendary marketers you put together and everything you are putting together a was people will these super famous people 10 years ago and it's engineers go back and actually study these out again and she didn't see who's actually still publishing is the ones who were actually still relevant to.
Speaker 2: Oh my gosh. It's so funny. Mixed it. I actually had that same conversation with Russell. Um, so let's kind of to, I'm going to talk to real quick guys about this whole idea of the importance of the content. You personally control determines the beliefs that you currently have. So right now, do you think of the people you associate with, the people who you're talking to, the people who, whose books you're reading and people's podcast, you're listening to adventure, attending, all of those things, who's ever content you're consuming is literally whose belief system you're going to essentially adapt. And I think it's important that you become super pretty kind of judgemental about who it is you're actually the content you consume because whoever's content you consume is exactly whose, whose beliefs you eventually will adapt. I getting Chandler is talking about from a religious standpoint, I don't care what your religious background is, but if you take a look at anybody, any religion who has his scriptural content, if you start consuming that content and you start adapting and starting using it, starting to apply in
