So what is your secret to being successful in business? In business, the key is self-awareness, Michael. You have to know what you are good at and what you like. So many people are chasing what they wish they were or where the money is. But this is a simple game of self-awareness. Are you good at it and do you like it because you have to like it because it's too hard if you don't. We know a lot of -- The other thing -- Go ahead. The number one thing people miss is patience. This takes a ton of time. This takes a lot of time. Everybody thinks they'll make their first million in five seconds.

So what kind of questions are you getting now from people who are struggling? I mean, people are struggling in general because about perspective. They're just really upset so I tell them you need to go into the gap and let me explain, not the store. The gap is gratitude, accountability and perspective. Are you just grateful? The reality is are you grateful for what you have versus what you don't. Everyone is talking on Twitter and social and to their friends and each other about what they lost. I can't go on a vacation. I miss the office. But are you actually grateful for your health? Have you looked at the numbers? Then there's accountability. Are you actually accountable to make yourself happy? Instead of pointing the finger, Michael, you know this, everybody points the finger to the government, my boss, this person, that person, how about pointing thumbs. Are you accountable? What can you do to make yourself happy and then perspective? The reality is, it's very simple. If you were watching this program with Michael and I right this second -- Gary, hold that thought.
