In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

Hey PAHQ, Stephen Watson calling in to cool off the hotline. Square body fan and a fan of people being better people. Along those lines, I feel like after the I believe it was Paul Carter maybe discussion where I think John was talking about not really wanting to talk to people about his opinions to impress them. I feel like there’s some room to talk about a couple of concepts along the lines of thoughts versus opinions. If that guy that asked for your thoughts on the subject, would you be more inclined to answer some questions and also along the lines of the words impress and inspire because we should all be living a life that tries to lead and inspire somebody, maybe a lot of people, probably should be a lot of people and those are kind of important things dead. The ability to do things that other people want to emulate be a wait live your life away that other people want to emulate and at what point or is it took actions that inspire people and when is it your words and your thoughts that inspire people. So there’s a whole lot to to use one of John storms off a whole lot to unpack right there. So there you go start unpacking by month.

Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.

John unpacks his thoughts on this week’s caller’s opinion on thoughts VS opinions and the role of the “influencer”. People demand your position wasting time arguing what is good, man. Why should we point fingers, assign shame, and falsely praise when we can focus on being a good man and empowering those around us. The rhetorician comes out to play with thoughts, beliefs, opinions, and ideas putting the ball in your court to wonder, are you talking or are you walking?
