Own Up To Your Mistakes | Episode 20 | Infinity Effect


– We all have an ego. When you’re so caught up in yourself, it can potentially block your brain, and block your thought patterns, and block your thought process in and around the very thing
that you’re trying to achieve. Ego is something that
stops you from growth. (relaxing beat-driven music) Here I am in beautiful Singapore. I’ve been in Singapore for 4 days now, 5 days actually, and interestingly flying home tomorrow. It’s been a great trip, and thought I’d do a little bit of a vlog in regards to a bit of a topic
that we’re talking about, which is ego. And I can definitely think
of a time in my life where, not a time sorry, many times
in my life where you know, my ego definitely got in
the way of personal growth and personal development. Way back when I used to work
in the oil and gas industry, I was actually in Algeria, of all places. In Africa, the top of Africa in the middle of the Sahara Desert, in a place called Hassi Messaoud. And part of my role, just to quickly give you some background, is, or was to, I suppose, sell medical
and security services. I can remember a negotiation
where I literally said, something to the effect of you know, “You’d be crazy not to
work with my organisation,” at the time, the company
that I was working with, “and go to a competitor
because we’re better.” I’m sure you can probably
figure out where this is going. They actually went with my competitor. And I was literally dumbfounded. And they literally said
something to the effect of, “You were so full of
yourself, that we just went, we don’t want to deal with you, and we definitely don’t want
to deal with your organisation if they’ve got people like you in there. And, you know, in the moment it was really tough to hear. I was really humbled
and it made me realise, you know what, a bit of
humility really goes a long way. – One of my mentors once said to me, “You can either be right,
or you can be happy.” And if we would be willing
to accept our mistakes, and admit them, then we would be capable of growing, and expanding so much more. Cause we owe it to ourselves to challenge the way that we approach any particular outcome that
we’re seeking to achieve and accomplish. And rather than hinge our
self-worth on being right, we can hinge our self-worth on our ability to open up our awareness, understand where it is that
other people are coming from, and understand the possibility that there is so much more
than the frame of reference that we’re utilising. And if we would be willing
to accept our mistakes, and admit them, then we
would be capable of growing, and expanding so much more. – Welcome to The Infinity
Effect, I’m Garry Pesochinsky. – And this is John Sader. – And this is Michael Peroumal. – Finally I’m back in the country, I’ve had a holiday– (Michael hollers)
(John laughs loudly) (laughs) How was everyone’s week? Or weeks, because I haven’t
been here for that long. – A stop. – Ah, stop. – Audio track not selected. Sucks. That sucks. is that they happen all the time I mean I know I make mistakes daily. Welcome to The Infinity Effect. Welcome to the Infinity Effect. How is everybody? I know that I am back (laughs) (John and Michael laugh) We discussed this a little bit earlier, and it’s a bit weird, (mumbles) start that one again. we can —-ing start that one again. (John and Michael laugh) (videographer laughs) (John and Michael laugh)
it’s not the same anymore! We like to deflect mistakes, and say that we are perfect, because it does have like,
an ego associated with it. Because everyone wants to be perfect. Yes, I know I’m saying
something that’s weird, but no, yes, people do want to be perfect, and be seen to be perfect, and seen to be not making mistakes. But in essence that’s actually impossible. – Take three – Welcome everybody, this
is The Infinity Effect, I am Garry Pesochinsky,
and we are joined by – John Sader, and uh – Welcome everybody, this
is the Infinity Effect, – You need to throw away the notion that you need to be perfect, because perfection can never be achieved. (beep noise)
Welcome, this is The Infinity Effect. No, this is not The Infinity Effect. Is it? (mumbles)
(John laughs) – Aw, last chance this is the Infinity Effect. No, this is not the Infinity Effect. – (mumbles) But you’re
looking at me (murmurs) – Oh, I’m sorry, okay. – It comes back to your ego, and the things that you can control. (beep noise)
Welcome, – I know but you’re looking
at me, it’s making me blush. I am Garry Pesochinsky, and welcome, welcome to all our whistlers? Listeners! (laughs)
(John laughs) I can’t speak today, but
that’s all very good. this is the Infinity Effect, John
(everybody laughs) – Hell. (everybody laughs)
Okay, enough! (everybody laughs) This is nice though. We need a laugh. – Welcome to all the whistlers. (everybody laughs) John! (everybody laughs) – Oh —-ing hell. and who you are, and who
you’re being on a daily basis. Welcome,
(beep noise) this is The Infinity Effect, I am Gary Pesochinsky. There are many of us that live our life, that we try to control
our whole environment, which in essence is very difficult, so it’s actually impossible. (person murmurs) – Now I’m looking at the audio, and I’m fearing that
I’m not recording you. – (laughs) Awesome. this is the Infinity Effect, – You reason! (everybody laughs) – So what you really need to do is just control you, and act upon the things
that you can improve, – Now I’m looking at the audio, so that you can then achieve the result that you want to achieve. (beep noise) – —- you reason! of The Infinity Effect. I hope everyone is feeling great, and I am Garry Pesochinsky, and I’m here joined with – John Sader – Welcome John. Let’s talk about admitting mistakes, John. – Ooo – When you have to own
up to things like that, you find out your real self. of the Infinity Effect.
