  • I was led to your channel because of your interview with Bedros. It got me to look into your background and who you are as a business leader and to my surprise you are a army veteran like myself. I have been in for 8 years 9 in January. I am currently on my second deployment and want to become an entrepreneur once I return home next year. The fact you broke this down the to traits of what the military taught you is exactly what I experienced while being in and currently experience with 8 years under my belt. I will be checking more of your videos for mor knowledge for the world of business. I'm currently getting my certification for fitness and my goal is to help over 10 million people to become healthier and live a fitter lifestyle. Thank you again for this video and may God continue to bless you on your future success.

  • Thank you for the video. Its very inspiring. .

  • Excellent video. I love listening to “Banda-Bing” guys. They get to the point quickly (I’m a New Yorker now living in Texas”.) I’m retired. Retired early due to many of your suggestions. Best motivator for me: Someone telling me i won’t make it. Nothing motivates me more then proving someone wrong. Now I’m lost. Don’t know what direction to take. So.... searching for the answers. This was very helpful. I’m looking to make a difference now in the world in a volunteer setting.. Stay tuned. Glad I found this video.

  • Are you Israeli? We live in Israel.

  • Hi Pat. Am retired air force from other country. Just wow! I’m now a manager in servicing company in oil n gas business. My wife is an entrepreneur. I’m just wowed. You make me think a lot tonight. I can honestly relate to all your point. Thanks for the video. I should make my move! Thanks a lot! So inspiring..

  • " I was listening to 3 songs on repeat, back then on a walkman" lol! Nostalgia😅 yes radio- casette tapes- walkman ( still casette tapes) - portable cd players - then came the never ending ipods (ipod original- palm size heavy kind- ipod shuffle, ipod mini then the ipod generations)

  • Great Content Love From India

  • Haha I remember the laundry room fights in boot.

  • Thanks so much for this paramount video keep it up sir . May the lord bless you abandauntly .

  • maybe they didn't want him at the military because he was Iranian? I don't know...

  • Thanks for your service! Stumbled to your video about college scam tonight, and I'm hooked. I too come from divorced parents, barely graduated from high school, and enlisted in the U.S. Army after high school and went to basic in Fort Knox in March 1990. Your videos will be useful. Again, thank you and God Bless!

  • I really didn't know who this guy is.

  • Definition of this video? Flexibility. Side note: Re-classing from 88M to an 31 Echo when deployment is over. It'll be my second contract with the Army! Can't wait to start a new adventure and learn a new trade. #OperationAtlanticResolve

  • NICE TRY

  • Apart of yourself , and your hapra cadapra business advice ....what do you sell in real life..?

  • What a pussy he should have joined the coast guard.

  • this dude is real.he needs to speak more at varsities and stuff..

  • That 3rd song is “I Belong to you” by Brian McKnight.

  • thanks so much for this video I learned alot it saves me many years. before I had the intention of becoming a military man to learn discipline but as a result of your video I understand that I don't need to go to military to learn discipline because that's my weak point actually I am lazy. But your video inspired me so much thanks for that. May God bless you and your family.

  • As an entrepreneur, I thank you sir!!!

  • Fighting in the army !!!! OMG who would have thought ?.there was a time when the military wanted guys who wanted to fight. The T.I. Or D.I. Would take these guys and mold them with disipline. Why would you not a guy like that. Harvard business school ? Good luck ! They re all progressives now

  • Kc and jojo ,#2

  • please dont sing

  • *I HOPE EVERYONE CAN RECOGNIZE THE INTERIOR OF A TRAILER. YOU ARE SITTING INSIDE A TRAILER TELLING ME HOW TO BE A MILLIONAIRE. AND NO, I'M NOT GONNA BUY THAT YOU SIMPLY HAPPEN TO PREFER LIVING IN A TRAILER. SOME NICE PEOPLE LIVE IN TRAILERS, BUT I LIKE THOSE OF THEM THAT ARE NOT LIARS.* *THEY FOOLED YOU, THEY HAD YOU, THEY OWNED YOU, THAT GROUP SERGEANTS DID. THEY ARE EXPERIENCED EXPERTS AT THE YOUNG SOLDIER;S MENTALITY. THEY ARE STREET LEVEL, (PRACTICAL TYPE OF), PSYCHOLOGISTS. THEY PULL THE STRINGS OF ANY GUY WHO IS STILL HALF A CHILD, AS WE ALL WERE IN THAT AGE. K. JUST THINK, WHAT DOES THE MILITARY DO? IT FIGHTS. SO THEREFORE A PERSON WITH FIGHT IN HIM IS THEIR BEST CADRE. LMAO, BUT THEY ACTED LIKE THE PRINCIPAL IN THE HIGH SCHOOL OFFICE JUST TO PUT ONE OVER YOU. THEY KNOW YOU ARE CONDITIONED ALREADY FROM HIGH SCHOOL TO THINK THAT YOU ARE IN BIG TROUBLE FOR FIGHTING. THE CHOICE THEY PRESENTED YOU WITH WAS THEIR WAY OF BACKHANDEDLY PERSUADING YOU TO STAY. AND THEIR "TRYING TO BREAK YOU" AFTERWARDS, WAS ALSO PART OF THEIR TACTIC.*

  • If you can’t enroll in the military I highly suggest self defense classes like boxing or Krav Maga. You’ll learn a lot of these lessons as well.

  • this video is great and don't leave me girl is A CLASSIC

  • If you doing to good in business. What are you doing as a youtuber?

  • Awesome. New subscriber

  • In iran, military service is an option but they don't give you a passport or driving licence if you don't do it. So, you really didn't have a choice.

  • I enjoyed this video so much! It is really on point I’m a business owner it is no joke Hard and you need to be hard too

  • Super and thorough list. Respect

  • I managed things by diplomacy and lies in order to avoid fights, it lead me to complete failure, but this video taught me what I lack... a fighting spirit.

  • It all sounds great but people often forget that soldiers purpose is also to kill. If you are going to military there is a chance you will have to kill others. I know lot of you are "tough guys" etc. but even people so trough like you have psd, often ex soldiers commit suicide or drink/take drugs. ThIs guy probably didn't have to kill anyone. I'm wondering what he's life would be if he did it. I'm not pacifist/soyboy. But army is not harder version of boyscouts or selfdevelopment school for confused boys without money.

  • I agree with the theory. Yet there is one huge flaw. Only those who serve Yeshua will survive any of this. No real soldier will deny this fact.

  • Great lessons man. They are all true. I served for many years in the Brazilian Army as a Sergeant. I am a lawyer currently and all skills I`ve learned in the Army such as discipline, leadership, honor and so on are important for my current job.

  • isnt it backstreet?

  • so much of his military story sounds like total bullshit, i wanna see a dd214

  • I literally part my life in before and after "military video" now. Thank you SO MUCH

  • This dude was not in the military lol... so obvious

  • Thank you

  • After winding to and fro like a vagabond in world of learning at last i finally found the most interesting one. Thanks sir.

  • Why didnt i learned about this key message before. Im glad it opens up and I dare, i will apply it. I believe its not yet late, its still two year old video.

  • Pat are you coming to the DFW area? I enrolled in a Entrepreneurship boot camp program starting in 2019 and was wondering if you are on of the Military millionaires coming to speak?

  • How old is usher then??

  • Great stuff to learn .... it´s so much valuable...

  • You punk... Thank you!. Thank you very much for what you said and gave me.

  • Great insights brother! I discovered long ago that I do perform better under pressure, just as I do better when I play a 3 minute chess game. Brother, although your insights are hitting all the right targets, it behooves your audience to know that personal belief, counts for 50% of what ever we're trying to accomplish in LIFE!... To believe in oneself is beyond paramount, is actually the SECOND most difficult thing for any of us to achieve. And the MOST difficult one is to FORGIVE oneself! The THIRD one is related to the SECOND one, which is to take MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF ACTION on what we believe!!!!!

  • The front line is errywhere, there be no shelter here.

  • Bullshit, you become a millionaire by simply knowing the right group, it has nothing to do with any of this shit. The tribe thing is definitely something I lack. He is lying, multitasking is never good for you.

  • Persian here 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

  • This was an excellent & informative talk on business lessons.

  • This is great PBD. I would always be ready to learn from you, anyday, anytime!. Please Can I get a video about HOW TO HANDLE THINGS YOU NEVER WANTED TO ENTER INTO?

  • Brilliant tips

  • Air Force ✈️

  • Great video #respect

  • Great video.

  • 20. Verify! (how'd you miss this boss ;-)

  • Thank you. Good points. I wrote them done.

  • I came across this at the right time for many reasons. WOW!!!!! Thank you so much.

  • You have great materials - I'm studying them just now. Thank You for your effort and making this channel

  • Patrick thank you, I have recently retired from the military and 01 February 18 started working at a small business in California bringing home 6k a month after taxes plus still collecting checks from the USCG as well so I was able to save a decent amount of money. After 7 months at this job it went under. Now my wife (also ex-military) and I are picking up our 3 children and moving across the country without jobs and no safety net and looking to start our own business in Fitness in sunny Florida. Thank you for reaffirming what I have already suspected. In the service it was no problem for people to handle a Million dollar budget or be in charge of a asset that's worth a couple of Hundred of thousands of dollars. Yet in the civilian world no one wants to give you that shot cause you have no degree. Not realizing all the training and experience and moneys that the government has invested in you only to come out of the military and get a job that pays 65K a year. I want more. Keep the content coming, keep dropping those gems it is greatly appreciated.

  • Retired Army SF, been doing contracting for two years since I got out. It's scary but I am making the jump and watching as many things as I can to gain knowledge before doing it. Thanks for the video and I hope you're right PDB.

  • Thank you for the kick in the butt inspirations!!!
