How does it feel for them to call you the mt powerful M in country sic? I guess good? I don't know if that's true but it's good, yeah. That's all Y got is good? I try to cultivate new artists. That's a big dealo see people when they're staing out and mentor them. Before the "Idol" thing I was trying to do that in Nashville, with artists in nashvie, so the "Idol" thing was a cool extension. To be a mentor or "Idol" a you see these talented young people trying to become stars or trying to become successful in whatever field they're in, what are some of the commo challenges that they face that every day people face? A lot of us go we like this end result so how do we get to that end result the quickest. What a lot of pple don't see and eve the contestants don't realize there are baby steps. That's how you get to th end. Instead of -- we'll U I had dol for example, insteadre going to the top four it's what's my next song, my next note. People here, you work I an office, what's the next hour, th next half-hour. You. How are you going to get the quarterback the next play. It's not always about the final score of the game B what can I do in the next cident. You're clearly a success story. Why did you name the book "Fail until you don't"? I failed a lot, man. Most of R life we look at Instagram and go, man, I wish that me, it looks so easy. In reality the most successful people are the people that have actually failed the most. It's not that we're ser talented. It's that we can fall and get back up and not only get back up but learn from that at the same time. That's what iound to be T common denominator with a L of people that are super successful. Super successful people in ur book, Steve jobs, Stephen king and Elvis Presley, some of the most sucssful people in their fields but you use them in aur book as an exame. Let's put our audience to the test. Grab your clicker and guess which one of these three men faced failure, STE jobs, Stephen king or Elvis Presley. Who do you think or "D," all of the above. What did the audience say? They say -- boy, this is taking a while. That's what I say. Oh, all of the above seems to be the winner. What's you answer? It is all of the above. Yeah, U all win. You all get to go to Mike's house laternd have dinner. Congratulations. We're go over. Yeah. Ring the bell to see who shows to answer the door. No one. I think a lot of these guys, if you look at Elvis, Elvis went to play the grand ole opry and they said you aren't a good singer, you should try Annika pella group. Eastern Stephen king had a STA of letters on his door that were rejection slips. He quit. He threw "Carrie" into the garbage and H wife pick it up. Andne of the best selling books of all time. He sold millions. That's really what 'S all out. It's about everyone is goi to fail all the time but how many times can you get back up and do it gin. I wrote this book bec sometimes I read Tse books and theyeither preach it to me and they're yelling at me I jus wanted write practical advice for pple going through practical things. I'm jus guy from NSAs, a small town, trying T mak it, man. Now you have a lot of success. Thank you very much. Appreciate youharing it with everybody.
