Melissa: We’re so excited to have Nick Santonostasso with us here today.

Rob: Thanks for jumping on here.

Nick: You got it. I’m ready to drop some bombs here.

Rob: Let’s get started. Nick, tell us a little bit about your backstory, kind of who you are, where you’re at, for people that don’t know you just give us a little backstory.

Nick: So, long story, short story is, I’m 25 years old, but in 1996, my mom went in for a late ultrasound and, they sat them down, they pulled the baby up on the screen and suddenly the doctors started freaking out and they said, “well, what’s going on?” And they said, well, “from the looks of it, it doesn’t look like your baby’s limbs are being developed.

It looks like he’s missing his legs. His arm, his face might be messed up.” And in that moment, they classify me with what they call Hanhart syndrome. And Hanhart syndrome is a super rare genetic disorder that either leaves the babies with undeveloped limbs or undeveloped organs.. And so at the time of my birth in 1996, I was the 12th baby of medical history that they’ve ever seen this happen to.

And out of the 12, eight of those babies have passed away and. They told my parents, they said, Hey, your baby boy has about a 30% chance to live, and my parents were like, all right, let’s, let’s take this on. And, I came out looking like this, and so I got no legs of an arm and my unicorn body. But all my organs are a hundred percent healthy.

And, like I said, the long story, short story is I’ve, I’ve faced a lot of adversity in my life, just like everyone listening. And I got obsessed with a few things. The first question that I got obsessed with waswhy is change so hard? And why can’t everyone change their life?

And then for me, the pain that I experienced because of being born with no legs, one arm and struggling with self-confidence, and all this different types of stuff, pushed me to learn more about the human brain and how I can unwire, rewire my brain. And so now at this point I’ve done some pretty cool things.

I was a prankster, a bodybuilder, but I guess right now, I’d say I’m the brain guy where I help entrepreneurs, unwire and rewire so they can have more joy, fulfillment, success, happiness, whatever that looks like. And, now we’re here on the show.

Rob: That’s awesome. Yeah. And we got to hear you speak live, at a conference we were at a couple of months ago, in front of 3000 people in the room and another 3000 people tuning into it.

And it was amazing. It had huge implications on mine and Melissa’s life.

Melissa: For you for sure. Exactly! The rewire, when you spoke about that, it, it really hit home

Rob: for you. It did. It totally did. And I’ve realized some of the habits that I have in my life that are not good habits. And I had to figure out not only how to get rid of the habits, but how to rewire my brain.

So I wouldn’t fall back into those habits and it was an amazing, amazing experience. And that’s why we actually reached out to them. We have been, everything has been pretty cool. So, definitely Nick has had a huge impact on us. So, like I said before, we greatly appreciate you doing this Nick in and stepping in here.

And helping everybody, and giving some great value bombs that,everybody can take away, to try to help grow their businesses.

Melissa: Have you always had the positive outlook that you have, and the energy that you have now?

Nick: Yeah, that’s a great question. And so the answer is no, a hard, no. And, we all come somewhere.

And so, you know, for the majority of my life, I’m 25 for the majority of my life. I was the victim. I was in the victim role. Meaning that I was blaming everyone else for my problems. More importantly, God, the universe, like, why would you make me like this? And that was kind of my role or my story.

That I told myself, I was like, oh, I can’t do that because I’m born like this. And I can’t have that because I’m born like this. I’ve never worked a job, because I’m born like this. And that what’s pretty interesting is the victim mentality that I was in, the, another analogy for it is like, you’re you’re in cause and effect.

Meaning like this is the cause, and this is why my life is like that. And the real shift for a lot of people is if we can get people from cause and effect to causing the effect, then you move from the passenger seat of your life, to the driver’s seat of your life, which really means ultimately that you take a hundred percent accountable.

For the damn reason why you are, where you are, is because of your actions and not because of what happened to you in the past. And so, yeah, so that is just super powerful for me, and anyone listening is because, excuse my language, but shit is going to happen to all of us. You know, all of us moving forward,

I don’t care how successful you are. Stuff is going to happen to you. And I think one of the most powerful things that I’ve become a master at is, exercising that lens of not being a victim, but being a victor in the sense of I’m going to find the gifts, I’m going to find the learnings. I’m going to find the meanings.

I’m going to find who I became. And that’s gonna allow me to fail faster because I’m not afraid of it. And I don’t even know if I answered your question, but I’m just excited to be here. No, you

Rob: did great. Yeah, it was awesome for sure.

Melissa: Whenever you talk about, you can’t do this because you’re born this way or something that you became a bodybuilder, like who would have thought, like how, why, what, made you change your thought that

Nick: you could be a bodybuilder?

That’s a great question. And so, a lot of us know with human psychology. There’s two reasons why humans change. And it’s pretty interesting, two reasons why humans change, the first is pain. And the other thing is pleasure, but what’s pretty interesting is that humans will run away from pain, faster than we’re run towards pleasure.

Meaning, that we’ll wait until the doctor says you have diabetes to start on your health and fitness journey. You’ll wait until someone forcing something on you, and then in your employee, to finally go all in on your dreams, or you’ll wait until the relationship gets extremely toxic for you to find it, leave it.

It’s that pain threshold that we wait for. And the question that I would challenge everyone listening is like, why wait until you experienced enough pain? Why don’t you change from a state of appreciation, joy, pleasure, all that, all that great stuff.

Melissa: What made you decide to do bodybuilding?

Nick:

Exactly. So, the pain and pleasure. And so I experienced enough pain in the sense of the one thing that was a massive pain for me was, relationships was women. When I was in middle school and high school, the girls didn’t like me, or, that was my story that they didn’t like me the way that I like my friends.

And so I think, any dude or any girl listening, like a lot of times after like a breakup or something, doesn’t go your way. They joined the gym. I don’t know that’s just me, but it happens a lot. And so I started wrestling to dig myself out of a, deep hole. And then I fell in love with not only the physical gains, but the mental gains.

And what I mean by mental gains is what’s pretty interesting is when you move your body, you put your body under stress. Whether that’s a workout, a jog, and dance moves, shaking your butt, whatever. Your body then releases dopamine, which we call the awesome sauce. That’s stuff that makes you feel amazing.

And that’s why we’ve always all said I don’t want to work out, but when we work out, we feel so much better. I feel so much better. And so I got into bodybuilding and it’s pretty funny because when I got into bodybuilding, people were like, well, how are you gonna become a bodybuilder? You have no legs.

And I was like, well, most of these guys skipped leg day anyway, you know, I’ll fit right in. And that’s what I, I told the event we were at, right? And I became a bodybuilder, but there’s a few things on how I became a bodybuilder. The first thing was. I was resourceful. I was resourceful. You know, like there is always lack.

There’s always a lack in your life if you tend to focus on it, but there’s also a lot of gain and a lot of resources, that you probably are not tapping into because you’re not focused on it. And so for me, I’ve built all of my success on modeling people who already have the life or results that I want.

And that’s exactly what y’all do for people. In the sense of like, I’m not going to take health and fitness advice from someone who’s overweight, it’s just not going to happen. And so when I wanted to become a bodybuilder, I moved to Tampa and I found the biggest dude. I became best friends with them. We’re still best friends.

And I was like, can you train me? And he’s like, absolutely. And what that does is when you learn from someone who has the life or the results that you want, it expedites the time, and expedites the process, and all successful people know we’re always willing to invest in something that can save us time, because you can never get tired.

And so I became a bodybuilder because I tapped into my resources, but also, I had a compelling vision. And we talk about those two forms of motivation. There’s push and there’s pull. And most of you listening have been pushing too long. You’ve been pushing towards the money. You’ve been pushing towards a relationship, you’ve been pushing towards the goals.

You only get so far, but if you have something that pulls you, for example, it’s like, I can ask you, why do you work out? You’re like, well, I have to, I have to stay in shape. It’s like, no, do you want to break the generational curse? Do you want to play with your kids without being out of breath? Do you want to live a long time

so you can spend all the damn money you make? What is it? Right. And so does that make sense? And so there’s a few things that go into play of achieving things, but I think the first one is realizing that it’s not a lack of resources. It’s just, you’re not tapping into your resourcefulness. And the second one is really identifying why are you even doing what you’re doing?

Rob: I love it for sure. Yeah. And the push and pull. That’s amazing. And I’ve never thought of it that way, but that is an amazing analogy of that.So yeah, that’s all getting to the pulling of it.

Nick: Wow. How old were you whenever, you made this shift

Melissa: in your mind? When you were a kid, how did that affect

Nick: you?

I think, it was gradual, in the way that we look at the brain as it’s a muscle, right? And if we don’t, use it all the time or exercise, it all the time, it gets weak. And so I think the first shift for me was, I was wrestling and I wasn’t the best wrestler. And I came off the mat after getting my butt kicked and this lady came up to me crying.

I’m like, oh my God, what did I do wrong? And she was like, Nick, I want to thank you. And I was like, for what? For entertaining you, like, what did I do? And she’s like, well, my daughter is on the sideline and she was watching you. And my daughter is very shy, she never wanted to do a sport or an activity.

And after seeing you out there, she asked if she could try something new, and I want to thank you for having that shift. And I was like, oh my god, the first thing was, I was on the mat for myself. I was being selfish. I was trying to dig myself out of my damn hole. I wasn’t trying to be inspirational, motivational Nick.

And I was doing it. And the second thing was I felt a fuzzy feeling inside called fulfillment, that I don’t think I felt before. And a lot of the times we get fulfillment by contribution. We get it by growth and contribution, and that’s what we’re all seeking by the way is fulfillment and happiness.

And so I was like, Ooh, I like this little fuzzy feeling I get inside. I want to do more of this. Imagine if I focus my energy on how I can do more service to others while also serving myself. And so that was the shift for me of realizing that my suffering stops when I serve something greater than myself. My suffering stops when I’m not only in Nick’s world, but I’m like, this is much bigger than Nick’s world.

How can I impact the world? Does that make sense? Of course, for sure.

Rob: Yeah. That’s awesome. We help other flippers and stuff and help them, to grow their business. And when we started, we had no idea the impact, like people are doing amazing things in their business and it’s so fun to see, you get that.

Melissa: You do you get that feeling like, oh,

Rob: it’s so cool. And we flip some cool stuff. Let me make really, really good money, flipping some really cool stuff. But the fulfillment, just like you were talking about the fulfillment that we get, when we see somebody else flip something amazing. And we know we had a part in that journey, we can’t do it for other people, but we can lead people, give them the blueprint.

And when we see them execute it. That’s even better than our own flips. That’s better than us making a thousand dollars on flipping something. When you get to see somebody else do what you’re teaching them, and then they keep growing from it. It’s amazing. So I totally relate to that, that fulfillment inside of us because of

Nick: that.

That’s awesome. Yeah. And it also builds more belief in certainty in your skillset and what you do, and your passion, and your mission. It’s like a lot of people that are listening, like you’re brilliant. Go share it. And then when you go share it, you’re realize that you’re a lot more brilliant than you think you are because people are actually getting the results, so well done on what you, what y’all built.

That’s for sure. That’s awesome.

Melissa: How does the mindset guy deal with down days? Do you, do you get them?

Nick: Yeah, that’s a great question. And so, the biggest thing, like for people that are listening, if there’s one thing that you write down, it’s, I make people more conscious. I make people more aware of the human experience.

I break them out of the matrix. And so what I mean by that is, and I said this when, we met on stage, is that by the time you’re 30 or 35 years old, 95% of who you are is on autopilot. It’s your neural pathways already made inside the brain. And that means your thoughts, your actions, your emotions, your focus, your habits.

Good, bad, good, and bad habits they’re already there. And your brain relies on the autopilot because it takes up less energy and doesn’t have to burn as much calories it’s easy. Right. So. My down days getting into my down days. I have my down days because, and everybody’s going to have their down days because your brain is always trying to pull you back to your old identity.

Your brain’s main focus is to keep you safe. It’s to keep you certain, it’s make you comfortable. And as you know, as an entrepreneur, shit, ain’t comfortable. It is not comfortable. It’s ups and downs. It’s one moment. One month is really good. One month is not so good. It’s inconsistent sometimes.

And it’s really scary. That’s why I applaud entrepreneurs. And so, and I want to share this because it will make sense as we go into this question, is that your ancient brain is 7 million years old and it’s evolved a ton, but there’s still aspects of the ancient brain that are still there. And so every opportunity of growth, expansion,and investment, and event, you name it, is a potential threat to your brain.

And it’s going to try to tell you no, because we want to stay safe. We want to stay fat, we want to stay comfortable, in the sense of I want comfort. Right? And so we talked about an override. The word override is your brain on your down days is giving you an opportunity to override, to become a greater version of yourself.

But you decide whether you go backwards or forwards, but if you’re not aware that your brain is doing it, you’re like, oh, it’s just trying to look out for me. Of course I’ll eat the cake. Of course I’ll hit the snooze button. Of course, I won’t go to that event because it’s a little uncomfortable. And so, if you’re aware that your brain really doesn’t want you to win, then you can be more conscious of the little voice that’s trying to talk you out of the things and you can override it to become a greater version of self.

But that. doesn’t happen overnight? And it’s just so like the person you see here, I built this person and that’s why repetition is so important. Whether that’s the repetition of selling repetition of flipping repetition of going to events, repetition of the gym, is because if you can do something that you normally don’t do

over and over and over again, the next time you’re feeling shitty, your brain will default back to that setting that you’ve already created. Does that make sense? So your habits are already elevated. So yes. To get to your question, Nick has low days. And the first thing I’d say is sometimes I sit in my shitty diaper.

You know, sometimes I sit in the emotion. Sometimes I sit in, in, in the thing, but remember I talked about awareness. Can I actually give them a little exercise? Is that okay? Of course. So there there’s an acronym and this is a neuro-plasticity exercise and it’s called AIA, AIA. And so the first A stands for awareness.

And so when you’re feeling down, when Nick’s feeling down, I can ask myself, okay, hello emotion. Where are you coming from? What was I focused on? What did I do? Was I creating something? Was I focusing on something that hasn’t even happened? Where is this emotion stemming from? And while you’re doing right now is becoming more aware of where your thoughts, your focus was that created that feeling.

Because a lot of the times, if we’re feeling anxiety, stress, or overwhelm, we might be thinking about something that hasn’t even happened yet. Or maybe thinking about something that hasn’t even happened yet. And predicting that it’s going to turn out shitty. Right. And so we create overwhelm. Yes. They’re like we do this.

Right, and so the first A is awareness, where is this emotion coming from? Hello? Acknowledge it. Where’s it coming from? And what did I do to induce it? Because it’s most likely self-induced it doesn’t just happen. But that’s the shift is most people out there is they feel shitty, and they just accept it and they go on feeling shitty.

And it’s like, no, let’s like figure out where this came from. So first A is awareness. The second letter is I, which stands for intent. And you ask yourself, okay, Rob and Melissa, is it my intent to feel stressed? Probably not. Is it my intent to feel overwhelmed or fearful or anxiety, or sad, or angry or insecure?

Right. And you kind of chuckled because you’re like, no, it’s not my intent to feel this way. And you kind of make a joke out of it. And it’s like, okay, well, what is my intent? How do I want to feel? Because you see a lot of people can talk about intent and they think I know what I’m going to do today, but let me ask you this.

Can you be, can you set more intention on feeling better emotions? Can you set intention on having better thoughts? Can you set intention on focusing on good things rather than bad things? And the answer is yes. Right? So what is my intention? Do I want to feel certain? Do I want to feel confident? Do I want to feel I’m productive?

And then the last, the last letter is action, which is okay. Remember Nick has one finger and it’s like, what’s the one thing that I can do in this moment. That’s gonna move me forward to make me feel the emotion that I want to feel? Because a lot of the times, we can get overwhelmed. Maybe it’s a massive goal.

We get overwhelmed. Like, oh shit. I don’t think I could get that goal. But then when you break it down into the first step, you’re like, okay, this is tangible. And so that exercise is just simply called AIA. And it’s an exercise that you go through when you’re having a low day to one, be aware of where this habit or where this emotion is coming from.

And then how can we be more aware of it? Because if we can become more aware, we take what’s unconscious, we turn it into conscious and now we can strip power away from it. But you can’t strip power away from something that you don’t know is. Yeah,

Melissa: that was what, that was one of my questions too, is like, how does somebody even know that they have a mindset or that issue is that they’re thinking all these things in their head, but they don’t know that’s the issue why

Rob: they’re doing it.

But like you’re saying, being aware of it is half the battle. You have to realize that it’s that way and you do not want it to be that way. So when you realize that you can tackle it, you can attack it and you can get it out of your life. So, that’s awesome. I love

Nick: that acronym. And I think as well, just, um, we, this society, we’ve been conditioned to be like hard asses you know, all the time, especially as entrepreneurs, we’re alpha we’re integrators.

We go, go, go. And, maybe that came from childhood where you heard, you know, big girls don’t cry or girls should be seen not heard. And then you develop a belief, especially men just put it out there. It’s like, you’re a man. You know what your shit is it’s like? Well, no, because how does that end up? You start stacking, stacking, stacking, stacking, and then.

Maybe you have suicidal thoughts and you have depression because you didn’t work through it. And so it’s one thing to be aware of it. And then the next thing is to be able to drop your ego and communicate.

Rob: Yeah, that’s awesome. I even think back to flipping, I mean, some of the big things that we deal with is flipping is, you know, we can’t do this.

We have to ship out an item. You know, it’s going to be hard to do that. Or, you know, we get a return. Somebody asked for a request on return. All these things are stuff in your mind. They will sabotage you. It will be like, okay, shoot. I do not want to, I don’t want to deal with this or I’m having to deal with this.

What do I do as the next step? You have to remember, you have to realize this thought is coming in. There’s a way out of it and you guys can work past it. So no, I just think back to our business all the times that we’ve been severed, I’ve been sabotaged by those thoughts that come into your. And they are there they’re dealable.

You can definitely figure out how to deal with them. But realizing that it is a bad thought and you do not want to dwell on it. You don’t want it in your mind. Yeah, you definitely can get out. I’ll bring it back to the store real quick, Nick, this is, this is crazy. This thing messed me up in my mind.

We sold a car a year ago, one of our cars, we sold it and I was in a rush. The guy was late coming to pick up the car. I was in a rush to get out, to go pick up my kids from school. The guy pays me. I, and I think we sold for like $6,500. The guy pays me and he’s counting out like $20 bills and I’m in a rush and I’m counting these $20 bills out and I’m getting it.

And he gets to, he goes $5,000 and then gives me an extra $500, which I think it was 6,500. He paid me $5,500. He didn’t realize it. And at that point I didn’t realize it cause I’m in a rush. So, I was like, okay, okay, that’s good. Here’s the title? I gotta go. I gotta go pick up my kids. Well, I ran in the house, put it into the safe and left it in the safe, because it was cash.

So a couple days later I went to pull it out and take it to the bank. And, I counted it and I’m like, wait a minute, this guy’s shorted me a thousand dollars. So I call the guy back up and I said, Hey, the guy bought it in Georgia, his buddy picked it up, so crazy stuff. And I’m like, this guy shorted me.

He’s like, I didn’t short you. And I said, yeah, yeah, somebody shorted me because I don’t have the thousand dollars. He’s like, well, I paid the money, but my buddy who picked it up, my. All that being said is my mindset was screwed up for the next couple of days. I’m like, I just got screwed out of a thousand dollars.

What do I do? And I had to keep remembering, okay, this is not going to make or break me. We can figure out how to get past this, make another thousand. Exactly. Keep moving forward. Instead of dwelling on that thousand dollars, I lost. Okay. Now, how can I go make that thousand dollars up? What can I sell? What can I go buy to do that?

So that’s the mind shift that you have to be thinking about that for us, that’s kind of how it comes into play. So, I

Nick: love it. I love that. And that’s a perfect example of exercising, your emotional control, you know, and you can analyze this and people it’s like, if, people easily get pissed off in traffic or they spill a cup of water, like you’re like, wow, That’s a very small problem.

It’s a very small problem. And, and if you go into entrepreneurship, which most people listening, this is what you’re in. It’s like your, your success is directly correlated to how much chaos you can withstand. And, you know, when we, when we got to learn together, we’ve got the opportunity to, learn from Tony Robbins as well.

And he talked about like a pain threshold. And so anytime you get shortage, anytime the product doesn’t your way.. Instead of being like, this is a terrible problem. It’s more of a worthy opponent for you to exercise your emotional control. Because if we didn’t have anything that, that made us pissed off, we wouldn’t be able to grow up.

We wouldn’t be able to expand. We wouldn’t be able to become more and exercise our emotional control. And so I love the, I love the shift too, in the sense of like this, isn’t a problem, it’s a worthy opponent and I’m going to destroy this worthy opponent. And it’s going to allow me to exercise and become a greater version of.

Rob: I love it. And that is huge point about growing because you guys, if you think about the times in your life that you have grown, even Melissa and I starting this business five years ago, we pretty much were at a crossroads. We lost our health insurance. We had to do something else with our jobs and we got thrown into this.

That was the hardest, most stressful time in our lives and look at what has come out of it. So reflect back on just like Nick is saying and think about those times where you’re in that spot and you want to figure out how to go to the next level. Typically, this is where you’re made. This is where you, the decisions that you make and you make the decisions to put, push through and go to that next level.

That is huge. So yeah, a hundred percent.

Nick: That’s awesome. Yeah. And real quick, I just want to have, I just want to add is. And I mentioned this when I was with y’all is asking the right questions is so important because your brain is a problem solving mechanism. And it’s always going to give you an answer to the questions you ask, and it may not be the right answer, but it’s going to give you a damn answer.

And so, for example, I work with a lot of entrepreneurs. You know, some of them are like, well, why am I not a successful dad? Or why am I not as successful in my relationship? I’m like, you’re asking the wrong question. Question. I mean, like challenge yourself. What makes you successful already in this very moment?

What makes you successful as a father already? What makes you successful as a mother already? What makes you successful as an entrepreneur already? And that will give you the evidence that, oh my God, I have a track record. Push it to the side. I’ve been focusing on the things that I’m not right. And so asking the right questions is going to lead lead to the right answer.

And when you’re in those moments of growth problems, challenges worthy opponents. The golden question for me is like, what am I going to learn from this? What am I going to learn? And who is it going to make me become? Because it’s going to give me something. And if I, and if I look back on my life and I said, who did I become?

Because girls didn’t like me. I said, I would have became more confident and pushing me to become more confident. It pushed me to have a better physical body. The kids bullying me, who did I become? Because kids bullying me I love people even more. I want to serve people and I don’t want people to ever feel like that.

But if I always felt great, I probably wouldn’t serve people because I’m like, people don’t need me. You know, people don’t need that. I feel great. You know, does that make sense? And so like your adversity and your past really cultivated you into who you are, but you choose whether you want to find the gift or not.

And that’s really the choice. It’s like, am I going to be a victim of my past and my present and the future? Or am I, I’m going to be the victor and, and literally upgrade from everything that happens to me. And imagine if your emotional control was so good that despite what happened to you, you knew a few exercises, you calm yourself down and you took action and you bulldoze through whatever that was.

Life would never be the same. And so honor the problems and the obstacles because they give you opportunity to.

Melissa: Yeah, that’s awesome that you answered. You’re answering my questions right before I’m going to ask them cause I was like, what is somebody, how did somebody start to like realize this and just asking the right questions and being aware, I think are the two biggest things to start with.

And like it’s something comes at you evaluate it instead of just like jumping to the conclusion or getting upset or whatever. And see what the actual problem is and how you can react to it.

Rob: Yeah. Thank you so much. Wereyou gonna say

Nick: something? Oh no, I’m good. I’ll go as long as you want, but

Rob: that was what I was gonna say.

I want to be respectful of your time. You’ve given us so much great information. I’m going to be reflecting on this all day todissect my brain like I at the conference. When I mean, we just took so much away. We, meditated on it and really got a lot out of it. When you

Melissa: spoke about rewiring your brain and your habits, like a lot, a lot of the times at night, long day, you’re tired.

We have these, you know, big projects we want to work on, but then at night after the kids go to bed, we go and watch Netflix. So that was a big thing. That

Rob: It’s a habit. I’m exhausted. Sit down in my chair and watch TV for the next three or four hours. And that was not a good habit. That’s not a good habit.

So after we listened to the conference, so now I’m up usually until I would say 10, 11, maybe even 12 o’clock some nights, and we’re working on the business, we’re working on how to serve, how serving people better, um, reaching out to people, doing more stuff like that. And it’s just that time on the weekends too.

Well, that’s one of the biggest takeaways we took away from your talk is rewiring. One of the ways that we actually put it into play. One of the things you had

Melissa: said is you have to do something to spark that change. So you said after we put the kids to bed, I’m going to do like 20 pushups and then get my energy back up instead of just sit down in my chair.

So, and it’s

Nick: the little things. Yeah. It’s doing stuff that you normally don’t do, with repetition and then you become that person, you know? And, and I think, just to end off with, I want to, I want to acknowledge that. The few things is, you know, meditation is thrown around, like people don’t really understand it.

And if I literally could stress the importance that when you meditate and you exercise that muscle, you’re literally allowed to go into your subconscious mind and unwire things and rewire things. A lot more people would meditate. And the reason being especially in the morning is the best time because you’re literally, your brain is still in Beta state, which is the door to your subconscious mind.

That’s where all of your, like, if the conscious mind, if we looked at the brain as a glacier, your conscious mind is the tip of the glacier and your unconscious mind is everything on the water. And we wonder why we set goals, but we don’t achieve them. Cause we’re, consciously, we want things, but unconsciously, you don’t want things.

So if we can get in alignment with our unconscious and our conscious mind, then we go from goals. The goal achievers. And then the last thing I would say is, I am proof that you can build amazing things through modeling, to people who have the results that you want. And Robyn, Melissa, with what they’ve done with the flips and all the things that they’re going to teach you.

These are learning from, got over here, a babyyoda.There are these, they are learning from the baby Yodas and, and learning from people who have already walked the path and they can guide the path. They can say, don’t go left, go, right. There’s a pothole. There don’t go there. There’s a booby trap over there.

You don’t want to go over there. They’re going to save you time. And so I promise if you play full out in this event that we’re going through, you will expedite your journey, but most importantly, you’ll take your finances to the next level, your business, to the next level. And then your life will never be the same.

So be excited to embark on this journey with Robin, Melissa. I love it. I love

Rob: it, Nick. Hey, there’s a lot of people that are on here are gonna want to know how to connect with you. What is the best way people can reach out? Can learn some more stuff from you. What’s the best way for people to

Nick: reach out.

Yeah. Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, mostly Instagram. You’ll find me. And it’s just Nick Santonostasso, but it’s a really long last name. So if you type in Nick space, Santo, it’s the guy with no legs, but armed with a bunch of tattoos. I’m the only one.

Melissa: We’ll put your links on the page too.

Rob: That’s awesome.

So thanks for spending the time with us. We greatly appreciate you, man. Yeah, this has been very, very amazing for us to take in this information. So exciting to share with everybody. I know you’re going to touch so many people in this as well, so thank you. Thank you.

I grew up in Central Florida and have lived here my whole life. I first got into buying and selling items when I was 16 years old, and have been hooked ever since. It has mostly been a hobby that makes some extra cash, but sometimes it serves as my main income as well. I don't plan on stopping any time soon. I find too many fun toys for my family (or myself), and just love the whole process.
