    Episode Highlights:


    Dave’s directive really became clear when he was five years old because his dad left.


    Dave believed money bought happiness because he grew up with very little.


    He grew up playing football and picked a college where he could play football.


    He learned that he could sell early and that’s part of why he went to law school.


    He found a way to weave sports into his first job out of college.


    All of Dave’s brothers and sisters were doctors and lawyers.


    Parents don’t tell kids what to do, they show you.


    You don’t do what you love, you learn to love what you do.


    How to change your mindset about your job – find the light in it.


    If things aren’t going the way you expect them to go, pray for someone’s happiness.


    Just because you’re financially successful doesn’t mean you’re actually successful.


    When things happen for you, you can have too much and it can make you unhappy.


    Spirituality and math go into Dave’s decision-making process.


    If you can create a “habit machine” then you can think about what you want to do and get out of your own way.


    List out three things in your life that you know are good for you, but you don’t do.


    If you believe that if you say “thank you” for over 30 days your life will be different and then you do it, your life will change.


    Getting growth doesn’t start without action, even small actions.


    We input data into our systems through the five senses, but our data is foggy.


    It takes one particle of light to cancel out a million particles of darkness.


    Neural pathways create habits and they’re impacting your DNA.


    We usually make decisions based on the opinions of others which is how you make huge mistakes.
