Today's Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 560, originally published in August 2015.

If you are in control of your life your kids do not talk back to you, you tell the waiter your food is subpar and you believe in every single word you say. If the aforementioned doesn’t ring true for you then you need to “grow a pair” and get your house in order. If you decide not to tell someone they are stealing your time and money at your business then by default you are condoning it. Larry believes you are providing people a service by telling them the truth. They need to experience the failure and the pain in order to allow them to learn from their mistakes. Keeping quiet doesn’t help anybody. 

Key Takeaways:

Jason’s Editorial:

 

[4:56] Is this the beginning of the economic meltdown

Larry Winget Interview:

[8:07] Entitlement is the biggest enemy to our society

[8:59] People need stronger opinions and need to stand up for them

[9:44] Living on the edge is what gets one into history books

[10:50] The “I have a pair” test 

[12:16] If you put up with something you condone it

[12:50] If you want to do the other party a service speak up about crappy service

[13:54] Peale’s “ruined by praise than saved by criticism” quote

[14:57] Ground your opinion and refuse to create drama

[16:14] I provoke people on purpose 

[17:33] Which is better having rabid fans or rabid enemies

[19:35] I can count on my haters, they buy my products 

[20:28] Numbness is a caused by a of lack of confidence in a speaker's’ faith in what they say 

[21:51] Businesses can grow a pair by refusing to tolerate thieves or 20% of their employees

[23:27] We expect more out of our government than we expect out of ourselves 

[25:21] Being in the middle is a safe place but it’s no fun

[27:12] Honest and open communication isn’t welcome in a world of political correctness

[28:44] I respect all opinions on my social media page 

[30:38] It’s not about changing somebody else it’s always about yourself

[32:49] Kid’s need to experience failure and friends need the truth
