  • 00:05:27.240 --> 00:05:28.230
  • SOMETHING THAT GOD ENDS UP USING
  • 00:05:28.230 --> 00:05:30.230
  • YOU AS A SPEAKER AND A
  • 00:05:30.230 --> 00:05:31.190
  • COMMUNICATOR?
  • 00:05:31.190 --> 00:05:32.140
  • - TRENT: EXACTLY, EXACTLY.
  • 00:05:32.140 --> 00:05:33.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:33.040 --> 00:05:34.120
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:05:34.120 --> 00:05:36.170
  • BUT I END UP FINDING THE JOY IN
  • 00:05:36.170 --> 00:05:37.220
  • IT, LIKE, AND I WOULD GET GOOD
  • 00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:39.170
  • GRADES, AND THE TEACHER'S LIKE,
  • 00:05:39.170 --> 00:05:41.120
  • "YOU'RE A GREAT SPEAKER."
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:43.030
  • AND IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE I
  • 00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:44.020
  • NEVER SAW MYSELF AS THAT.
  • 00:05:44.020 --> 00:05:44.250
  • YOU KNOW, I'M A INTROVERTED GUY,
  • 00:05:44.250 --> 00:05:45.170
  • AND I'VE ALWAYS BEEN.
  • 00:05:45.170 --> 00:05:46.090
  • I MEAN, MY PARENTS WOULD TELL
  • 00:05:46.090 --> 00:05:48.050
  • YOU, LIKE, IF THEY HAD TO PUT A
  • 00:05:48.050 --> 00:05:49.230
  • BET ON THREE KIDS, I WOULD BE
  • 00:05:49.230 --> 00:05:50.230
  • THE LEAST TO BE A SPEAKER 'CAUSE
  • 00:05:50.230 --> 00:05:52.060
  • I WAS ALWAYS QUIET, AND ENDED
  • 00:05:52.060 --> 00:05:53.180
  • UP, YOU KNOW, MAKIN' IT TO THE
  • 00:05:53.180 --> 00:05:55.290
  • NFL, AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU
  • 00:05:55.290 --> 00:05:57.250
  • WANNA GET INTO THAT STORY RIGHT
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:05:59.020
  • NOW--
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:05:59.190
  • - CLIFTON: YEAH.
  • 00:05:59.190 --> 00:06:00.170
  • - TRENT: OKAY.
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:01.020
  • - CLIFTON: WHY NOT?
  • 00:06:01.020 --> 00:06:01.180
  • WHY NOT?
  • 00:06:01.180 --> 00:06:02.160
  • JUST BRIEFLY BECAUSE IT LEADS US
  • 00:06:02.160 --> 00:06:04.210
  • TO TALKING ABOUT FINDING YOUR
  • 00:06:04.210 --> 00:06:06.080
  • PURPOSE.
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:06.290
  • - TRENT: EXACTLY.
  • 00:06:06.290 --> 00:06:07.210
  • SO I MAKE THE NFL, BUT IT WASN'T
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:10.280
  • THE WAY I WANTED TO MAKE IT, AND
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:13.230
  • I WAS PROJECTED TO BE A
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:15.130
  • FOURTH-ROUND TO A LATE-ROUND
  • 00:06:15.130 --> 00:06:17.120
  • PICK, AND I'M WATCHING THE NFL
  • 00:06:17.120 --> 00:06:19.010
  • DRAFT, AND MY NAME ISN'T BEING
  • 00:06:19.010 --> 00:06:20.160
  • CALLED, AND THAT WAS THE FIRST
  • 00:06:20.160 --> 00:06:22.080
  • TIME IN MY LIFE WHERE I REALLY
  • 00:06:22.080 --> 00:06:24.010
  • FELT LIKE I WASN'T ENOUGH, AND I
  • 00:06:24.010 --> 00:06:25.230
  • HAD TO MASK IT BECAUSE MY MOM
  • 00:06:25.230 --> 00:06:27.270
  • WAS THERE, AND PEOPLE WOULD CALL
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:29.000
  • AND SAY, "TRENT, ARE YOU OKAY?"
  • 00:06:29.000 --> 00:06:30.140
  • AND IT'S FUNNY: THE BEST WAYS WE
  • 00:06:30.140 --> 00:06:31.270
  • SAY WE'RE NOT OKAY IS BY SAYING
  • 00:06:31.270 --> 00:06:33.230
  • WE ARE OKAY, RIGHT?
  • 00:06:33.230 --> 00:06:35.100
  • AND SO THAT WAS ME: "I'M ALL
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:37.060
  • RIGHT; I'M GOOD," EVEN THOUGH I
  • 00:06:37.060 --> 00:06:38.060
  • WASN'T GOOD.
  • 00:06:38.060 --> 00:06:38.200
  • AFTER THE NFL DRAFT, I DIDN'T
  • 00:06:38.200 --> 00:06:40.020
  • GET DRAFTED, BUT I WAS A
  • 00:06:40.020 --> 00:06:41.070
  • HIGH-PRIORITY FREE AGENT, SO
  • 00:06:41.070 --> 00:06:42.170
  • THAT MEANS THAT, YOU KNOW, TEAMS
  • 00:06:42.170 --> 00:06:43.290
  • WHO WANTED TO DRAFT YOU, THEY
  • 00:06:43.290 --> 00:06:45.000
  • JUST DIDN'T DO IT, SO MY PHONE
  • 00:06:45.000 --> 00:06:45.220
  • IS RINGIN' OFF THE HOOK, AND MY
  • 00:06:45.220 --> 00:06:48.010
  • UNCLE, HE COACHES --
  • 00:06:48.010 --> 00:06:51.010
  • HIS NAME IS GEORGE STEWART.
  • 00:06:51.010 --> 00:06:51.210
  • HE COACHED, I MEAN, SINCE I CAN
  • 00:06:51.210 --> 00:06:52.140
  • REMEMBER, BUT HE COACHES FOR THE
  • 00:06:52.140 --> 00:06:54.090
  • CHARGERS NOW.
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:54.220
  • HE SAID, "GO WITH THE
  • 00:06:54.220 --> 00:06:55.090
  • INDIANAPOLIS COLTS."
  • 00:06:55.090 --> 00:06:55.280
  • HE SAID, "I KNOW COACH DUNGY.
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:56.240
  • HE'S A MAN OF GOD.
  • 00:06:56.240 --> 00:06:57.270
  • HE'S GONNA GIVE YOU A FAIR
  • 00:06:57.270 --> 00:06:58.160
  • SHAKE.
  • 00:06:58.160 --> 00:06:59.050
  • YOU'RE NOT GONNA MAKE THE TEAM
  • 00:06:59.050 --> 00:07:01.020
  • 'CAUSE YOU'RE MY NEPHEW, BUT
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:01.290
  • HE'S GONNA GIVE YOU A FAIR
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:03.060
  • CHANCE TO GO THERE."
  • 00:07:03.060 --> 00:07:04.250
  • SO I GO TO INDIANAPOLIS THE
  • 00:07:04.250 --> 00:07:05.150
  • YEAR AFTER THEY WIN THE
  • 00:07:05.150 --> 00:07:06.030
  • SUPER BOWL.
  • 00:07:06.030 --> 00:07:06.150
  • IT'S LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE.
  • 00:07:06.150 --> 00:07:07.080
  • I'M SEEIN' PEYTON MANNING AND
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:08.100
  • REGGIE WAYNE AND
  • 00:07:08.100 --> 00:07:09.110
  • MARVIN HARRISON.
  • 00:07:09.110 --> 00:07:10.060
  • LIKE, I HAD LIKE A FANBOY AT THE
  • 00:07:10.060 --> 00:07:12.210
  • MOMENT WHERE I'M LIKE, "OH, MY
  • 00:07:12.210 --> 00:07:13.190
  • GOSH, ALL THESE PEOPLE I'VE BEEN
  • 00:07:13.190 --> 00:07:14.110
  • LOOKIN' UP TO MY WHOLE ENTIRE
  • 00:07:14.110 --> 00:07:16.050
  • LIFE."
  • 00:07:16.050 --> 00:07:16.210
  • AND I GET THERE, AND I HAVE
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:17.120
  • THE BEST PRESEASON OUT OF ALL
  • 00:07:17.120 --> 00:07:18.220
  • ROOKIES IN THE NFL, A GREAT
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:20.280
  • PRESEASON, SO I'M JUST THINKIN',
  • 00:07:20.280 --> 00:07:22.190
  • "OKAY, I'M ABOUT TO MAKE THIS
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:23.290
  • TEAM.
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:26.010
  • I'M GOOD."
  • 00:07:26.010 --> 00:07:26.210
  • WE GET TO THE THIRD PRESEASON
  • 00:07:26.210 --> 00:07:27.120
  • GAME, AND THEY DON'T PLAY ME,
  • 00:07:27.120 --> 00:07:29.120
  • AND SO THIS WAS VERY ODD TO ME
  • 00:07:29.120 --> 00:07:30.220
  • 'CAUSE I'M LIKE, "I'VE BEEN
  • 00:07:30.220 --> 00:07:31.270
  • BALLIN' OUT.
  • 00:07:31.270 --> 00:07:33.040
  • I'VE BEEN PLAYIN' GOOD.
  • 00:07:33.040 --> 00:07:33.220
  • WHY WON'T THEY PLAY ME?"
  • 00:07:33.220 --> 00:07:34.160
  • I TALKED TO A VETERAN.
  • 00:07:34.160 --> 00:07:36.000
  • I'M NOT GON' SAY HIS NAME, BUT
  • 00:07:36.000 --> 00:07:37.120
  • HE SAID, "TRENT, THE REASON
  • 00:07:37.120 --> 00:07:38.200
  • THEY'RE NOT PLAYIN' YOU, BECAUSE
  • 00:07:38.200 --> 00:07:40.020
  • THEY'RE HIDING YOU."
  • 00:07:40.020 --> 00:07:41.230
  • HE SAYS, "THEY WANNA PUT YOU
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:42.130
  • ON PRACTICE SQUAD,
  • 00:07:42.130 --> 00:07:42.280
  • BUT IF THEY KEEP PLAYING YOU
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:43.200
  • AND YOU DO GOOD, IF THEY CUT
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:45.000
  • YOU-- SO THEY'RE PROBABLY GON'
  • 00:07:45.000 --> 00:07:46.030
  • CUT YOU, SO IF THEY CUT YOU,
  • 00:07:46.030 --> 00:07:47.000
  • ANOTHER TEAM WILL PICK YOU UP
  • 00:07:47.040 --> 00:07:50.040
  • FOR WAIVERS, BASED UPON YOUR
  • 00:07:50.040 --> 00:07:51.180
  • STATS," AND SO, FAST-FORWARD,
  • 00:07:51.180 --> 00:07:52.090
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:07:52.090 --> 00:07:52.260
  • THEY CUT ME, THEY SIGNED ME TO
  • 00:07:52.260 --> 00:07:53.170
  • THE PRACTICE SQUAD, AND SO I'M
  • 00:07:53.170 --> 00:07:54.170
  • THINKIN' IN MY MIND THAT I'MMA
  • 00:07:54.170 --> 00:07:55.280
  • BE ON THE TEAM FOREVER, SO WHAT
  • 00:07:55.280 --> 00:07:57.140
  • DO I DO?
  • 00:07:57.140 --> 00:07:58.050
  • MY WHOLE VIEW OF SUCCESS,
  • 00:07:58.050 --> 00:08:00.190
  • GROWIN' UP, WHICH IS THE WRONG
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:01.100
  • VIEW, IS I GO BUY A CAR.
  • 00:08:01.100 --> 00:08:02.220
  • I GO BUY RIMS THAT COST $10.000,
  • 00:08:02.220 --> 00:08:04.060
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:08:04.060 --> 00:08:06.200
  • - CLIFTON: LORD--
  • 00:08:06.200 --> 00:08:08.020
  • - TRENT: AND I'M TRYIN' TO
  • 00:08:08.020 --> 00:08:08.220
  • IMPRESS PEOPLE BECAUSE, WHEN I
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:09.160
  • I HAVE TO SHOW EVERYBODY THAT I
  • 00:08:11.280 --> 00:08:12.200
  • MADE IT, RIGHT?
  • 00:08:12.200 --> 00:08:13.040
  • AND SO, TWO WEEKS INTO ME BEIN'
  • 00:08:13.040 --> 00:08:14.160
  • IN INDIANAPOLIS, I GET A CAR; I
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:15.140
  • GET A APARTMENT.
  • 00:08:15.140 --> 00:08:17.020
  • I GET A CALL FROM A 317 NUMBER,
  • 00:08:17.020 --> 00:08:18.290
  • LIKE, "HEY, WE NEED YOU TO COME
  • 00:08:18.290 --> 00:08:20.070
  • HE'S LIKE, "WE NEED YOU TO COME
  • 00:08:23.250 --> 00:08:24.170
  • IN, AND WE NEED YOU TO BRING
  • 00:08:24.170 --> 00:08:25.070
  • YOUR PLAYBOOK," AND I THOUGHT IT
  • 00:08:25.070 --> 00:08:25.290
  • WAS A JOKE, SO I'M LOOKIN' AT
  • 00:08:25.290 --> 00:08:26.200
  • THE PHONE, LIKE, AND I HANG UP.
  • 00:08:26.200 --> 00:08:27.120
  • THEY CALLED ME BACK, AND IT WAS
  • 00:08:27.120 --> 00:08:28.040
  • LIKE, "THIS IS THE ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:08:28.040 --> 00:08:29.130
  • WE NEED YOU TO COME HERE RIGHT
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:30.040
  • NOW AND BRING YOUR PLAYBOOK."
  • 00:08:30.040 --> 00:08:31.060
  • THEY CUT ME, AND SO I DRIVE BACK
  • 00:08:31.060 --> 00:08:33.020
  • HOME FROM INDIANAPOLIS TO TEXAS,
  • 00:08:33.020 --> 00:08:35.140
  • WHICH IS A LONG DRIVE AFTER YOU
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:36.230
  • GET FIRED, AND I'M THERE FOR A
  • 00:08:36.230 --> 00:08:38.090
  • FEW WEEKS, BUT WHILE I'M THERE,
  • 00:08:38.090 --> 00:08:40.140
  • I'M TEACHIN' MYSELF HOW TO RUN
  • 00:08:40.140 --> 00:08:42.030
  • FROM MY REALITY, AND A LOT OF
  • 00:08:42.030 --> 00:08:44.100
  • TIMES, WHAT WE DO IS WE SUPPRESS
  • 00:08:44.100 --> 00:08:45.290
  • THINGS, AND SUPPRESSION LEADS TO
  • 00:08:45.290 --> 00:08:47.270
  • DEPRESSION, AND SO I'M IN MY
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:49.060
  • MOM'S HOUSE IN MY ROOM.
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:51.020
  • I DIDN'T WANNA GO OUT BECAUSE
  • 00:08:51.020 --> 00:08:52.180
  • IT'S SEPTEMBER, SO IF I GO OUT
  • 00:08:52.180 --> 00:08:53.130
  • IN FORT WORTH, TEXAS, NOT A LOT
  • 00:08:53.130 --> 00:08:54.250
  • OF PEOPLE MAKES THE NFL.
  • 00:08:54.250 --> 00:08:56.120
  • PEOPLE ARE LIKE, "TRENT, WHY ARE
  • 00:08:56.120 --> 00:08:57.050
  • YOU HOME?
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:58.230
  • YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE IN
  • 00:08:58.230 --> 00:08:59.130
  • INDIANAPOLIS."
  • 00:08:59.130 --> 00:09:01.140
  • SO INSTEAD OF DEALIN' WITH THAT,
  • 00:09:01.140 --> 00:09:02.250
  • I STAYED IN MY ROOM,
  • 00:09:02.250 --> 00:09:03.260
  • AND I STARTED TO GET DEPRESSED.
  • 00:09:03.260 --> 00:09:04.180
  • TWO WEEKS LATER, I GET A CALL
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:05.180
  • BACK.
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:06.210
  • THEY BRING ME BACK UP, AND
  • 00:09:06.210 --> 00:09:07.240
  • THAT'S MY WHOLE NFL CAREER FOR
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:09.170
  • THREE YEARS, GETTIN' CUT,
  • 00:09:09.170 --> 00:09:11.190
  • GETTIN' RELEASED, GOIN' TO
  • 00:09:11.190 --> 00:09:12.220
  • PRACTICE, AND SOON AS YOU GET
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:14.040
  • OFF THE PRACTICE FIELD, THEY
  • 00:09:14.040 --> 00:09:15.240
  • TELLING YOU THAT YOU'RE GOIN'
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:17.010
  • HOME.
  • 00:09:17.010 --> 00:09:17.140
  • SEE, A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T SEE
  • 00:09:17.140 --> 00:09:18.050
  • THIS SIDE OF THE NFL.
  • 00:09:18.050 --> 00:09:18.220
  • YOU KNOW, YOU SEE THE MEGASTARS,
  • 00:09:18.220 --> 00:09:19.140
  • BUT THERE'S GUYS AT THE BOTTOM
  • 00:09:19.140 --> 00:09:20.270
  • OF THE TOTEM POLE, TRYIN' TO
  • 00:09:20.270 --> 00:09:22.060
  • MAKE THE TEAM, AND YOU'RE
  • 00:09:22.060 --> 00:09:23.030
  • LITERALLY WALKIN' ON EGGSHELLS,
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:24.060
  • SO IF I DROP A PASS, IN MY MIND
  • 00:09:24.060 --> 00:09:25.200
  • I'M LIKE, "OH, MY GOSH, I MIGHT
  • 00:09:25.200 --> 00:09:26.150
  • GET CUT," AND IT REALLY LED ME
  • 00:09:26.150 --> 00:09:28.220
  • TO A REALLY DARK PLACE, SO
  • 00:09:28.220 --> 00:09:30.000
  • ACHIEVIN' MY DREAMS WAS LIKE THE
  • 00:09:30.000 --> 00:09:31.250
  • BIGGEST NIGHTMARE IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:09:31.250 --> 00:09:33.110
  • - CLIFTON: DID YOU FEEL LIKE
  • 00:09:33.110 --> 00:09:35.080
  • YOU WERE RUNNING FROM YOUR
  • 00:09:35.080 --> 00:09:36.040
  • PURPOSE?
  • 00:09:36.040 --> 00:09:37.270
  • - TRENT: YEAH, I DID, AND EVEN
  • 00:09:37.270 --> 00:09:39.020
  • TALKIN' ABOUT PURPOSE-- IN FACT,
  • 00:09:39.020 --> 00:09:41.160
  • I ACTUALLY-- I WANNA
  • 00:09:41.160 --> 00:09:43.230
  • FAST-FORWARD TO, LIKE, NOW WITH
  • 00:09:43.230 --> 00:09:44.240
  • PURPOSE BECAUSE I BELIEVE
  • 00:09:45.000 --> 00:09:48.000
  • PURPOSE IS SOMETHIN' DIFFERENT,
  • 00:09:48.000 --> 00:09:50.080
  • AND I ACTUALLY REWROTE THIS
  • 00:09:50.080 --> 00:09:51.230
  • CHAPTER IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:09:51.230 --> 00:09:52.170
  • I HAD A EPIPHANY ABOUT, LIKE, A
  • 00:09:52.170 --> 00:09:53.240
  • YEAR AGO, AND I REWROTE THIS
  • 00:09:53.240 --> 00:09:55.270
  • CHAPTER BECAUSE, A LOT OF TIMES,
  • 00:09:55.270 --> 00:09:57.250
  • WE TELL PEOPLE TO GO FIND THEIR
  • 00:09:57.250 --> 00:09:59.050
  • PURPOSE, AND, FOR ME, I ALWAYS
  • 00:09:59.050 --> 00:10:01.130
  • BELIEVED THAT, BUT IT'S LIKE,
  • 00:10:01.130 --> 00:10:03.170
  • WHERE ARE WE SEARCHING FOR OUR
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:04.110
  • PURPOSE AT?
  • 00:10:04.110 --> 00:10:04.270
  • LIKE, WHO HAS IT?
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:05.290
  • DOES THE GUY DOWN THE STREET
  • 00:10:05.290 --> 00:10:06.240
  • HAVE IT?
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:07.100
  • LIKE, WHO HAS YOUR PURPOSE?
  • 00:10:07.100 --> 00:10:08.140
  • AND I REALIZED THIS: FOOTBALL
  • 00:10:08.140 --> 00:10:10.020
  • WASN'T MY PURPOSE.
  • 00:10:10.020 --> 00:10:12.080
  • FOOTBALL WAS JUST THE VEHICLE.
  • 00:10:12.080 --> 00:10:13.130
  • IT WAS AN AVENUE FOR ME TO, AT
  • 00:10:13.130 --> 00:10:15.240
  • THE TIME, WHAT I SHOULD'VE BEEN
  • 00:10:15.240 --> 00:10:17.090
  • DOIN' IS USING MY LIFE TO SHINE
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:20.190
  • GLORY UPON GOD,
  • 00:10:20.190 --> 00:10:21.190
  • BUT AT THAT TIME, I WAS BECOMING
  • 00:10:25.150 --> 00:10:28.150
  • SELFISH, AND SO WHEN I LOST
  • 00:10:28.150 --> 00:10:29.150
  • FOOTBALL, I LOST MY LIFE, AND
  • 00:10:29.150 --> 00:10:30.130
  • SO, BACK TO PURPOSE, I BELIEVE
  • 00:10:31.260 --> 00:10:34.260
  • PURPOSE IS NOT AN EXTERNAL
  • 00:10:34.260 --> 00:10:35.170
  • THING.
  • 00:10:35.170 --> 00:10:36.030
  • IT'S AN INTERNAL GIFT.
  • 00:10:36.030 --> 00:10:36.210
  • I BELIEVE YOU WERE CREATED WITH
  • 00:10:36.210 --> 00:10:37.130
  • PURPOSE.
  • 00:10:37.130 --> 00:10:37.230
  • I BELIEVE YOU ARE PURPOSE AS A
  • 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:39.010
  • PERSON.
  • 00:10:39.010 --> 00:10:39.170
  • LIKE, GOD CREATED YOU FOR
  • 00:10:39.170 --> 00:10:40.230
  • PURPOSE ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:10:40.230 --> 00:10:42.070
  • IT'S NOT TIED TO POSITION.
  • 00:10:42.070 --> 00:10:43.260
  • IT'S NOT TIED TO PROFIT.
  • 00:10:43.260 --> 00:10:45.000
  • SO, A LOT OF US, GOD COULD BLESS
  • 00:10:45.000 --> 00:10:47.020
  • US WITH OUR PURPOSE, AND WE SAY,
  • 00:10:47.020 --> 00:10:49.120
  • "OH, THAT'S NOT IT BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:10:49.120 --> 00:10:50.110
  • NOT POPULAR, OR I'M NOT MAKIN' A
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:51.040
  • LOT.
  • 00:10:51.040 --> 00:10:51.160
  • THIS CAN'T BE MY PURPOSE."
  • 00:10:51.160 --> 00:10:53.250
  • AND IT WAS THE SAME THING WITH
  • 00:10:53.250 --> 00:10:54.170
  • SPEAKIN'.
  • 00:10:54.170 --> 00:10:54.280
  • WHEN I WALKED INTO REHAB TIME, I
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:55.200
  • THOUGHT BEIN' A SPEAKER WAS JUST
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:57.280
  • BEIN' REAL.
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:10:58.280
  • IT WAS CORNY.
  • 00:10:58.280 --> 00:10:59.280
  • I DIDN'T WANNA DO THAT WITH MY
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:00.220
  • LIFE, BUT I REALIZED THIS WAS
  • 00:11:00.220 --> 00:11:02.130
  • THE AVENUE FOR MY LIFE TO BE
  • 00:11:02.130 --> 00:11:04.200
  • USED MOST EFFECTIVELY TO BRING
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:07.060
  • GLORY TO GOD, SO PURPOSE IS
  • 00:11:07.060 --> 00:11:08.040
  • SOMETHIN' THAT YOU ARE.
  • 00:11:08.040 --> 00:11:08.250
  • IT'S NOT SOMETHIN' THAT YOU
  • 00:11:08.250 --> 00:11:10.160
  • SEARCH FOR.
  • 00:11:10.160 --> 00:11:11.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:11:13.020 --> 00:11:16.020
  • - CLIFTON: THERE'S A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:11:16.020 --> 00:11:16.240
  • BETWEEN YOUR DREAMS,
  • 00:11:16.240 --> 00:11:18.220
  • WHICH YOU STARTED OUT WITH AS A
  • 00:11:18.220 --> 00:11:19.240
  • CHILD, AND YOUR REAL PURPOSE--
  • 00:11:19.240 --> 00:11:22.190
  • - TRENT: THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:11:22.190 --> 00:11:23.070
  • - CLIFTON: -- AND WHILE YOU
  • 00:11:23.070 --> 00:11:25.270
  • WERE RUNNING FROM THE REALITY OF
  • 00:11:25.290 --> 00:11:28.290
  • THE DIFFICULTIES YOU FACED, YOU
  • 00:11:28.290 --> 00:11:30.080
  • DISCOVERED YOUR PURPOSE; ISN'T
  • 00:11:30.080 --> 00:11:32.160
  • THAT RIGHT?
  • 00:11:32.160 --> 00:11:33.070
  • - TRENT: YEAH, I DISCOVERED IT
  • 00:11:33.070 --> 00:11:34.120
  • IN A WAY OF NOT WANTING TO
  • 00:11:34.120 --> 00:11:37.040
  • DISCOVER IT.
  • 00:11:37.040 --> 00:11:39.010
  • SO IT'S SO FUNNY BECAUSE, AT
  • 00:11:39.010 --> 00:11:41.060
  • THIS TIME, IT WAS PROBABLY-- I
  • 00:11:41.060 --> 00:11:42.290
  • DON'T KNOW-- 2011, I GOT
  • 00:11:42.290 --> 00:11:44.010
  • RELEASED.
  • 00:11:44.010 --> 00:11:46.140
  • I'M HIDING BECAUSE, YOU KNOW--
  • 00:11:46.140 --> 00:11:49.060
  • AND I JUST WANNA BRING THIS UP:
  • 00:11:49.060 --> 00:11:50.050
  • THERE COMES A POINT IN LIFE WHEN
  • 00:11:50.050 --> 00:11:52.020
  • SOMEBODY TELLS YOU, YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:11:52.020 --> 00:11:54.010
  • ENOUGH, RIGHT?
  • 00:11:54.010 --> 00:11:55.090
  • MAYBE YOU GET FIRED FROM A JOB.
  • 00:11:55.090 --> 00:11:56.030
  • MAYBE A TEACHER TELLS YOU THAT
  • 00:11:56.030 --> 00:11:57.280
  • YOU'RE NOT ENOUGH, AS A KID, AND
  • 00:11:57.280 --> 00:11:59.030
  • YOU BELIEVE THAT, AND SO, FOR
  • 00:11:59.030 --> 00:12:00.080
  • ME, FOOTBALL WAS THAT FIRST TIME
  • 00:12:00.080 --> 00:12:01.180
  • WHERE I FELT LIKE I'M NOT
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:02.270
  • ENOUGH, AND WHAT WE DO IS WE TRY
  • 00:12:02.270 --> 00:12:04.250
  • TO FIND FALSE IDENTITIES THAT WE
  • 00:12:04.250 --> 00:12:06.120
  • PUT ON OUR LIFE TO MAKE US FEEL
  • 00:12:06.120 --> 00:12:08.030
  • LIKE WE'RE ENOUGH TO PLEASE
  • 00:12:08.030 --> 00:12:09.010
  • OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:12:09.010 --> 00:12:09.180
  • AND SO WHAT DID I DO?
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:10.280
  • I TRIED TO BE A RAPPER.
  • 00:12:10.280 --> 00:12:12.050
  • I TRIED TO HAVE AN ENTERTAINMENT
  • 00:12:12.050 --> 00:12:13.140
  • COMPANY BECAUSE IT WAS
  • 00:12:13.140 --> 00:12:15.090
  • VALIDATION TO OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:12:15.090 --> 00:12:17.180
  • PEOPLE LIKED THAT.
  • 00:12:17.180 --> 00:12:18.030
  • AND SO WHILE I WAS PLEASIN'
  • 00:12:18.030 --> 00:12:18.230
  • OTHER PEOPLE, I WAS CONTINUING
  • 00:12:18.230 --> 00:12:19.140
  • TO LOSE MYSELF.
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:20.230
  • SO MY FRIEND, DR. TONY EVANS'
  • 00:12:20.230 --> 00:12:23.100
  • SON-- DR. TONY EVANS IS A
  • 00:12:23.100 --> 00:12:25.000
  • AWESOME MAN.
  • 00:12:25.000 --> 00:12:25.160
  • - CLIFTON: ANTHONY EVANS, JR.
  • 00:12:25.160 --> 00:12:27.030
  • - TRENT: WELL, ANTHONY, RIGHT?
  • 00:12:27.030 --> 00:12:28.210
  • YUP.
  • 00:12:28.210 --> 00:12:29.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:12:29.040 --> 00:12:29.290
  • SO ANTHONY-- THE WHOLE FAMILY IS
  • 00:12:29.290 --> 00:12:30.210
  • GREAT.
  • 00:12:30.210 --> 00:12:31.160
  • HIS SON JONATHAN, JONATHAN
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:32.230
  • PLAYED WITH ME AT BAYLOR, AND HE
  • 00:12:32.230 --> 00:12:34.260
  • PLAYED WITH ME AT WASHINGTON.
  • 00:12:34.260 --> 00:12:36.090
  • AT WASHINGTON, WE WERE ROOMMATES
  • 00:12:36.090 --> 00:12:38.210
  • FOR JUST A BRIEF TIME BEFORE HE
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:39.130
  • GOT CUT.
  • 00:12:39.130 --> 00:12:39.280
  • I GOT CUT RIGHT AFTER HIM SO--
  • 00:12:39.280 --> 00:12:40.260
  • BUT WE WERE ROOMMATES, AND HE
  • 00:12:40.260 --> 00:12:42.210
  • KEPT SPEAKIN' INTO MY LIFE.
  • 00:12:42.210 --> 00:12:44.220
  • HE SAID, "TRENT, THERE'S
  • 00:12:44.220 --> 00:12:46.070
  • SOMETHIN' INSIDE OF YOU--" AND
  • 00:12:46.070 --> 00:12:48.050
  • THIS WAS WAY BEFORE THE REHAB
  • 00:12:48.050 --> 00:12:49.100
  • TIME THING BLEW UP.
  • 00:12:49.100 --> 00:12:49.260
  • "THERE'S SOMETHIN' INSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:12:49.260 --> 00:12:51.060
  • THAT YOU DON'T SEE IN YOURSELF."
  • 00:12:51.060 --> 00:12:51.280
  • AND, AT THAT POINT, I'M LIKE,
  • 00:12:51.280 --> 00:12:53.100
  • "WELL, I HOPE THAT YOU SEE ME,
  • 00:12:53.100 --> 00:12:54.250
  • LIKE, GETTIN' SIGNED BACK TO THE
  • 00:12:54.250 --> 00:12:56.030
  • FOOTBALL TEAM BECAUSE THAT'S
  • 00:12:56.030 --> 00:12:56.280
  • WHAT I WANT," YOU KNOW?
  • 00:12:56.280 --> 00:12:57.250
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:12:58.110
  • - CLIFTON: YEAH, YEAH.
  • 00:12:58.110 --> 00:13:00.250
  • - TRENT: AND SO HE'S LIKE, "NO,
  • 00:13:00.250 --> 00:13:01.170
  • IT'S SOMETHIN' BIGGER THAN
  • 00:13:01.170 --> 00:13:02.060
  • THAT."
  • 00:13:02.060 --> 00:13:02.200
  • HE'S LIKE, "I COME FROM A FAMILY
  • 00:13:02.200 --> 00:13:03.120
  • OF SPEAKERS AND PREACHERS."
  • 00:13:03.120 --> 00:13:04.100
  • HE'S LIKE, "THERE'S
  • 00:13:04.100 --> 00:13:05.190
  • SOMETHIN' INSIDE OF YOU."
  • 00:13:05.190 --> 00:13:06.270
  • SO, A FEW MONTHS LATER,
  • 00:13:06.270 --> 00:13:07.290
  • MAYBE A YEAR LATER, OR SO,
  • 00:13:07.290 --> 00:13:10.010
  • HE INVITES ME TO SPEAK
  • 00:13:10.010 --> 00:13:10.180
  • AT HIS CHURCH.
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:11.050
  • IT'S CALLED THE CAGE EVENT,
  • 00:13:11.050 --> 00:13:12.190
  • AND IT'S ABOUT-- SEEMED
  • 00:13:12.190 --> 00:13:15.150
  • LIKE 50.000,
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:16.240
  • BUT IT'S ABOUT 3- TO 5.000 KIDS,
  • 00:13:16.240 --> 00:13:18.050
  • AND IF YOU NEVER SPOKE IN
  • 00:13:18.050 --> 00:13:19.270
  • FRONT OF KIDS BEFORE,
  • 00:13:19.270 --> 00:13:20.290
  • IT'S THE MOST TERRIFYING THING
  • 00:13:20.290 --> 00:13:21.240
  • EVER, RIGHT?
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:23.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:23.000 --> 00:13:23.270
  • BECAUSE KIDS WILL LET YOU KNOW
  • 00:13:23.270 --> 00:13:24.240
  • EXACTLY HOW THEY FEEL, RIGHT?
  • 00:13:24.240 --> 00:13:26.030
  • - CLIFTON: MM-HMM.
  • 00:13:26.030 --> 00:13:27.070
  • - TRENT: AND SO I DIDN'T WANNA
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:27.290
  • AND I HAD A FEAR, AND I WAS
  • 00:13:30.140 --> 00:13:31.040
  • LIKE, "MAN--" I WAS TRYING TO
  • 00:13:31.040 --> 00:13:31.250
  • FIND ALL THESE EXCUSES.
  • 00:13:31.250 --> 00:13:32.130
  • LIKE, "ARE YOU SCARED?"
  • 00:13:32.130 --> 00:13:33.010
  • AND I WAS LIKE, "I'M NOT SCARED.
  • 00:13:33.010 --> 00:13:34.010
  • I JUST DON'T WANNA DO IT."
  • 00:13:34.010 --> 00:13:36.000
  • HE SAID, "NO, I THINK YOU'RE
  • 00:13:36.000 --> 00:13:36.200
  • SCARED."
  • 00:13:36.200 --> 00:13:37.000
  • AND SO, "FINE," I SAID,
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:37.180
  • "FINE, I'LL DO IT."
  • 00:13:37.180 --> 00:13:38.070
  • I PREPARED THE WHOLE NIGHT
  • 00:13:41.230 --> 00:13:42.120
  • BEFORE.
  • 00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:42.220
  • LIKE, I MEAN, IT WAS A
  • 00:13:42.220 --> 00:13:43.130
  • FIVE-MINUTE SPEECH, BUT, YOU
  • 00:13:43.130 --> 00:13:44.090
  • KNOW, IN YOUR FIRST START AT
  • 00:13:44.090 --> 00:13:45.130
  • SPEAKING, IT SEEMS LIKE FIVE
  • 00:13:45.130 --> 00:13:46.160
  • HOURS, SO I PREPARED THE WHOLE
  • 00:13:46.160 --> 00:13:47.070
  • NIGHT BEFORE.
  • 00:13:47.070 --> 00:13:48.210
  • I'M LIKE, "I'M GONNA GET 'EM,"
  • 00:13:48.210 --> 00:13:49.120
  • "I'M GONNA KILL 'EM IN THE
  • 00:13:49.120 --> 00:13:50.130
  • MORNING WITH IT," LIKE, "IT'S
  • 00:13:50.130 --> 00:13:51.040
  • GONNA BE PERFECT."
  • 00:13:51.040 --> 00:13:52.220
  • I WALK ON STAGE,
  • 00:13:52.220 --> 00:13:53.090
  • AND I LOOK OUT AT THE AUDIENCE,
  • 00:13:53.090 --> 00:13:55.240
  • JUST LIKE THIS, AND I FORGET
  • 00:13:55.240 --> 00:13:56.140
  • EVERYTHING I PREPARED FOR.
  • 00:13:56.140 --> 00:13:57.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:01.250
  • SO I'M LIKE, "ALL RIGHT."
  • 00:14:01.250 --> 00:14:03.040
  • SO I SAID THESE THREE WORDS
  • 00:14:03.040 --> 00:14:04.150
  • THAT I STILL SAY TODAY
  • 00:14:04.150 --> 00:14:06.070
  • THAT I ALWAYS SAY.
  • 00:14:06.070 --> 00:14:07.220
  • I SAID, "GOD, USE ME."
  • 00:14:07.220 --> 00:14:08.100
  • AND IN THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:14:08.100 --> 00:14:11.060
  • I NEVER FELT SO MUCH PEACE
  • 00:14:11.100 --> 00:14:14.100
  • IN THE MIDST OF UNCERTAINTY--
  • 00:14:14.100 --> 00:14:15.010
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:14:15.010 --> 00:14:16.290
  • SO MUCH CLARITY IN THE MIDST OF
  • 00:14:16.290 --> 00:14:18.030
  • CONFUSION, AND I SPOKE TO THE
  • 00:14:18.030 --> 00:14:20.010
  • KIDS, AND THEY WERE LOCKED IN.
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:22.030
  • THESE KIDS DIDN'T MOVE.
  • 00:14:22.030 --> 00:14:23.170
  • THEY DIDN'T BUDGE.
  • 00:14:23.170 --> 00:14:24.040
  • I COULD TELL BY LOOKIN' IN THEIR
  • 00:14:24.040 --> 00:14:25.040
  • EYES, AND AFTER, THEY'RE ASKIN'
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:26.280
  • ME ALL THESE THINGS LIKE,
  • 00:14:26.280 --> 00:14:29.060
  • "HOW DO I LIVE FOR GOD MORE?"
  • 00:14:29.060 --> 00:14:31.060
  • I'M JUST LIKE, "MAN, I NEED TO
  • 00:14:31.060 --> 00:14:31.270
  • BE ASKING YOU."
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:32.200
  • LIKE, "I'M PREACHIN' TO
  • 00:14:32.200 --> 00:14:33.130
  • MYSELF RIGHT NOW,"
  • 00:14:33.130 --> 00:14:33.290
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:14:33.290 --> 00:14:34.080
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:34.080 --> 00:14:36.230
  • BUT IT WAS IN THAT MOMENT THAT I
  • 00:14:36.230 --> 00:14:37.170
  • REALIZE FOOTBALL WASN'T IT FOR
  • 00:14:37.170 --> 00:14:39.020
  • MY LIFE.
  • 00:14:39.050 --> 00:14:42.050
  • I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IN NEW
  • 00:14:42.050 --> 00:14:42.250
  • ORLEANS THE NEXT DAY TO REPORT
  • 00:14:42.250 --> 00:14:44.040
  • TO ARENA FOOTBALL BECAUSE I
  • 00:14:44.150 --> 00:14:47.150
  • WAS STILL TRYIN' TO HANG ON, AND
  • 00:14:47.150 --> 00:14:48.230
  • THAT'D BE A QUESTION I WANNA
  • 00:14:48.230 --> 00:14:49.250
  • ASK, LIKE, EVERYBODY WATCHIN',
  • 00:14:49.250 --> 00:14:51.090
  • LIKE, "WHAT ARE YOU HOLDIN' ONTO
  • 00:14:51.090 --> 00:14:52.130
  • THAT YOU NEED TO LET GO OF?"
  • 00:14:52.130 --> 00:14:53.210
  • -- RIGHT?
  • 00:14:53.210 --> 00:14:54.050
  • 'CAUSE SOMETIMES WE'RE HOLDIN'
  • 00:14:54.050 --> 00:14:55.090
  • ONTO SOMETHIN' THAT WE NEED TO
  • 00:14:55.090 --> 00:14:56.140
  • LET GO OF, AND GOD CAN'T PLACE
  • 00:14:56.140 --> 00:14:57.190
  • WHAT HE WANTS TO PLACE IN OUR
  • 00:14:57.190 --> 00:14:59.050
  • LIFE BECAUSE WE'RE HOLDIN' ONTO
  • 00:14:59.050 --> 00:15:00.100
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:15:02.140 --> 00:15:05.140
  • - CLIFTON: I THINK THAT'S A
  • 00:15:05.140 --> 00:15:06.060
  • GOOD PLACE FOR US TO DO A
  • 00:15:06.060 --> 00:15:07.040
  • ROLL-IN CALLED "WHAT IS YOUR
  • 00:15:07.040 --> 00:15:07.260
  • WHY?"
  • 00:15:07.260 --> 00:15:10.210
  • THIS IS TRENT TALKIN' ABOUT
  • 00:15:10.210 --> 00:15:11.270
  • "WHAT IS YOUR WHY?"
  • 00:15:11.270 --> 00:15:14.050
  • - TRENT: TWO SITUATIONS
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:16.040
  • HAPPENED THAT CHANGED MY LIFE,
  • 00:15:16.040 --> 00:15:17.230
  • THAT GOT ME ON THE RIGHT TRACK
  • 00:15:17.230 --> 00:15:18.290
  • AND WHAT YOU SEE WITH REHAB TIME
  • 00:15:18.290 --> 00:15:21.030
  • TODAY: ONE, THE BIRTH OF MY SON.
  • 00:15:21.030 --> 00:15:22.290
  • I WANNA TELL EVERYBODY HERE
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:23.250
  • THAT'S A PARENT, YOU A LEADER,
  • 00:15:23.250 --> 00:15:24.180
  • MAN.
  • 00:15:24.180 --> 00:15:26.040
  • YOUR KIDS ARE GONNA WATCH WHAT
  • 00:15:26.040 --> 00:15:27.010
  • YOU DO, SO IT DON'T MATTER IF
  • 00:15:27.010 --> 00:15:28.210
  • YOU'RE SUCCESSFUL IN THE WORLD
  • 00:15:28.210 --> 00:15:29.190
  • IF AIN'T SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR
  • 00:15:29.190 --> 00:15:30.130
  • HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:15:30.130 --> 00:15:31.170
  • STRAIGHT-UP, I WANT YOU TO
  • 00:15:31.170 --> 00:15:33.280
  • UNDERSTAND THAT SOME PEOPLE JUST
  • 00:15:33.280 --> 00:15:35.000
  • WORK, WORK, WORK, BUT THEY AIN'T
  • 00:15:35.000 --> 00:15:35.280
  • THERE FOR THEIR KIDS.
  • 00:15:35.280 --> 00:15:36.170
  • I'M NOT SAYIN' YOU DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:15:36.170 --> 00:15:37.090
  • GO HARD AND PROVIDE, BUT IF YOU
  • 00:15:37.090 --> 00:15:39.120
  • AIN'T PROVIDING T-I-M-E TO THEM,
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:40.080
  • THEY DON'T CARE HOW MUCH MONEY
  • 00:15:40.080 --> 00:15:41.050
  • YOU PUT IN THEIR POCKET.
  • 00:15:41.050 --> 00:15:43.170
  • AND, FOR ME, SEEIN' MY SON, THE
  • 00:15:43.170 --> 00:15:44.180
  • FIRST THING I TOLD MY SON WHEN
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:46.000
  • HE WAS BORN-- HE'S A BABY.
  • 00:15:46.000 --> 00:15:46.280
  • HE CAN'T TALK BACK, RIGHT?
  • 00:15:46.280 --> 00:15:47.290
  • BUT-- SO I SEE HIM, AND I SAID,
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:49.180
  • "TRISTAN, I DON'T WANT YOU TO
  • 00:15:49.180 --> 00:15:51.090
  • GROW UP TO BE LIKE ME."
  • 00:15:51.090 --> 00:15:52.210
  • AND FOR ME TO TELL MY SON THAT,
  • 00:15:52.210 --> 00:15:54.290
  • THAT HURT ME TO
  • 00:15:55.010 --> 00:15:58.010
  • MY CORE BECAUSE, REGARDLESS,
  • 00:15:58.010 --> 00:16:00.160
  • MY SON, TILL HE CAN MAKE HIS
  • 00:16:00.160 --> 00:16:01.240
  • OWN DECISIONS, IS GONNA FOLLOW
  • 00:16:01.240 --> 00:16:03.000
  • MY PATH, IS GONNA FOLLOW
  • 00:16:03.000 --> 00:16:04.010
  • MY LEAD.
  • 00:16:04.010 --> 00:16:06.020
  • THE FIRST VIEW OF RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:16:06.020 --> 00:16:07.230
  • FROM YOUR KIDS IS YOU.
  • 00:16:07.230 --> 00:16:09.000
  • WE PLANT SEEDS IN OUR KIDS
  • 00:16:09.000 --> 00:16:11.100
  • DAILY.
  • 00:16:11.100 --> 00:16:12.240
  • WE WONDER WHY WE HAVE THESE
  • 00:16:12.240 --> 00:16:13.140
  • CYCLES AND CYCLES AND CYCLES AND
  • 00:16:13.140 --> 00:16:14.100
  • THESE GENERATIONAL CURSES
  • 00:16:14.100 --> 00:16:15.270
  • BECAUSE IT STARTS WITH US, AND
  • 00:16:15.270 --> 00:16:17.090
  • NOT JUST WITH YOUR KIDS-- YOUR
  • 00:16:17.090 --> 00:16:19.150
  • WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE BECAUSE A LOT
  • 00:16:19.150 --> 00:16:20.200
  • OF PEOPLE TALK IT, BUT A FEW
  • 00:16:20.200 --> 00:16:22.060
  • PEOPLE LIVE IT.
  • 00:16:22.060 --> 00:16:24.150
  • AND SO, IMMEDIATELY, I SAY, "YOU
  • 00:16:24.150 --> 00:16:25.070
  • KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:16:25.070 --> 00:16:25.180
  • I'M A LEADER."
  • 00:16:25.180 --> 00:16:26.010
  • AND EVERY ONE OF YOU
  • 00:16:26.010 --> 00:16:26.170
  • IN HERE IS A LEADER.
  • 00:16:26.170 --> 00:16:27.030
  • YOU DON'T NEED NO PLATFORM TO
  • 00:16:27.030 --> 00:16:27.280
  • BE A LEADER.
  • 00:16:27.280 --> 00:16:28.100
  • SOMEBODY, AT SOME TIME,
  • 00:16:28.100 --> 00:16:29.110
  • SOMEWHERE, IS WATCHIN' WHAT YOU
  • 00:16:29.110 --> 00:16:30.200
  • DO AND STUDYIN' WHAT YOU DO, AND
  • 00:16:30.200 --> 00:16:33.120
  • THE PEOPLE'S LIVES YOU'RE GONNA
  • 00:16:33.120 --> 00:16:35.010
  • AFFECT THE MOST MIGHT NOT SAY A
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:36.010
  • THING TO YOU, SO "WHAT IS YOUR
  • 00:16:36.010 --> 00:16:36.290
  • LIGHT PUTTIN' OUT?"
  • 00:16:36.290 --> 00:16:39.110
  • WILL BE MY QUESTION TO YOU.
  • 00:16:39.110 --> 00:16:41.010
  • THE SECOND SITUATION THAT
  • 00:16:41.010 --> 00:16:42.100
  • HAPPENED WAS MY COLLEGE ROOMMATE
  • 00:16:42.100 --> 00:16:44.200
  • COMMITTIN' SUICIDE, SO WHEN YOU
  • 00:16:44.200 --> 00:16:45.120
  • SEE MY VIDEOS AT 3 AND 4 IN THE
  • 00:16:45.120 --> 00:16:46.280
  • MORNIN' ABOUT SUICIDE, IT COMES
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:48.060
  • FROM A REAL PLACE.
  • 00:16:48.060 --> 00:16:48.230
  • I MEAN, JUST IMAGINE SOMEBODY
  • 00:16:48.230 --> 00:16:50.170
  • THAT'S YOUR FRIEND, BEST FRIEND,
  • 00:16:50.170 --> 00:16:52.100
  • COMMITTIN' SUICIDE.
  • 00:16:52.100 --> 00:16:53.240
  • I PLACED SO MUCH GUILT ON MY
  • 00:16:53.250 --> 00:16:56.250
  • LIFE BECAUSE I FELT LIKE I
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:58.000
  • WASN'T THERE FOR HIM, AND AT
  • 00:16:58.000 --> 00:16:59.080
  • THAT TIME, I WAS STARTIN' TO
  • 00:16:59.080 --> 00:17:00.120
  • LIVE REHAB-ISH-- I WASN'T ALL
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:01.140
  • THE WAY REHAB TIME-- AND I
  • 00:17:01.140 --> 00:17:03.080
  • TALKED TO PEOPLE, GENUINELY
  • 00:17:03.080 --> 00:17:04.180
  • DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING IN RETURN
  • 00:17:04.180 --> 00:17:05.120
  • - CLIFTON: THAT PRESENTATION
  • 00:17:14.040 --> 00:17:14.250
  • JUST BEGS SO MANY QUESTIONS, BUT
  • 00:17:15.020 --> 00:17:18.020
  • THE FIRST ONE I WANNA ASK YOU
  • 00:17:18.020 --> 00:17:19.110
  • BEFORE WE GET TO THE SUICIDE OF
  • 00:17:19.110 --> 00:17:21.190
  • A DEAR FRIEND IS "WHAT IS REHAB
  • 00:17:21.260 --> 00:17:24.260
  • TIME, AND HOW DID YOU START IT?"
  • 00:17:24.260 --> 00:17:26.150
  • - TRENT: RIGHT.
  • 00:17:26.150 --> 00:17:27.270
  • SO REHAB TIME STANDS FOR--
  • 00:17:27.270 --> 00:17:29.060
  • I GUESS THE COOL ACRONYM WOULD
  • 00:17:29.060 --> 00:17:29.280
  • BE
  • 00:17:29.280 --> 00:17:30.090
  • "RENEWING EVERY HEART AND BODY,"
  • 00:17:30.090 --> 00:17:31.090
  • BUT MY DEFINITION THAT I LIKE TO
  • 00:17:31.090 --> 00:17:32.290
  • TELL PEOPLE IS "REHAB" MEANS
  • 00:17:32.290 --> 00:17:35.120
  • PUTTIN' STRENGTH BACK INTO A
  • 00:17:35.120 --> 00:17:36.090
  • WEAKNESS, AND IF WE'RE ALL
  • 00:17:36.090 --> 00:17:38.210
  • HONEST, WE ALL HAVE THAT
  • 00:17:38.210 --> 00:17:40.080
  • WEAKNESS THAT WE CAN
  • 00:17:40.080 --> 00:17:41.080
  • STRENGTHEN-- RIGHT?
  • 00:17:41.080 --> 00:17:42.060
  • -- WHETHER IT'S MIND, BODY, OR
  • 00:17:42.060 --> 00:17:42.280
  • SOUL.
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:43.110
  • FOR ME, AT THAT POINT IN MY
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:44.090
  • LIFE, IT WAS ALL THREE,
  • 00:17:44.090 --> 00:17:45.120
  • YOU KNOW, I WAS REALLY LACKING
  • 00:17:48.030 --> 00:17:49.020
  • IN MY FAITH.
  • 00:17:49.020 --> 00:17:49.250
  • MY PARENTS-- MY DAD'S A PASTOR.
  • 00:17:49.250 --> 00:17:51.180
  • I GREW UP IN CHURCH, BUT I WAS
  • 00:17:51.180 --> 00:17:52.090
  • RUNNIN' TO THE THINGS THAT I
  • 00:17:52.090 --> 00:17:53.080
  • THOUGHT WOULD FILL ME UP THAT
  • 00:17:53.080 --> 00:17:54.080
  • GAVE ME A TEMPORARY FULFILLMENT
  • 00:17:54.080 --> 00:17:55.070
  • INSTEAD OF REALLY FILLIN' THAT
  • 00:17:55.070 --> 00:17:57.070
  • VOID WITH GOD'S PRESENCE IN MY
  • 00:17:57.070 --> 00:17:58.170
  • AND SO "REHAB" FOR ME, I DON'T
  • 00:18:01.010 --> 00:18:01.220
  • KNOW WHERE THE NAME ACTUALLY
  • 00:18:01.220 --> 00:18:02.230
  • CAME FROM.
  • 00:18:02.230 --> 00:18:03.280
  • I JUST REMEMBER BEIN' IN MY
  • 00:18:03.280 --> 00:18:05.040
  • MOM'S ROOM-- WELL, NOT MY MOM'S
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:06.080
  • ROOM-- MY MOM'S HOUSE, IN MY
  • 00:18:06.080 --> 00:18:07.160
  • ROOM, IN MY BED.
  • 00:18:07.160 --> 00:18:08.290
  • 2009, I JUST GOT CUT FROM THE
  • 00:18:08.290 --> 00:18:11.070
  • SEAHAWKS.
  • 00:18:11.070 --> 00:18:12.040
  • TRISTAN IS ABOUT JUST OVER ONE
  • 00:18:13.010 --> 00:18:16.010
  • YEARS OLD, AND I'M LOOKIN' AT
  • 00:18:16.010 --> 00:18:17.220
  • ALL THE PICTURES IN MY ROOM.
  • 00:18:17.220 --> 00:18:18.280
  • I'M LOOKIN' AT ALL MY TROPHIES,
  • 00:18:18.280 --> 00:18:20.030
  • AND I JUST ASKED GOD, "GOD,
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:20.260
  • LIKE, IS THIS IT FOR MY LIFE?"
  • 00:18:20.260 --> 00:18:21.290
  • AND SOMETHING CAME OVER ME,
  • 00:18:21.290 --> 00:18:23.290
  • WHICH I KNOW WAS THE HOLY
  • 00:18:23.290 --> 00:18:25.060
  • SPIRIT, AND THE WORD "REHAB
  • 00:18:25.280 --> 00:18:28.280
  • TIME" CAME TO MY HEART, AND
  • 00:18:28.280 --> 00:18:31.180
  • REHAB TIME WASN'T FOR ANYBODY
  • 00:18:31.180 --> 00:18:34.120
  • ELSE.
  • 00:18:34.120 --> 00:18:36.040
  • I DIDN'T START THIS TO SPEAK.
  • 00:18:36.040 --> 00:18:38.030
  • I DIDN'T START THIS TO INFLUENCE
  • 00:18:38.030 --> 00:18:39.160
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:18:39.160 --> 00:18:40.110
  • I STARTED THIS TO CHANGE MY
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:41.130
  • LIFE.
  • 00:18:41.130 --> 00:18:42.120
  • SO I SAID, "MIND, BODY, AND
  • 00:18:42.120 --> 00:18:43.220
  • SOUL, WHAT CAN I CONTROL?"
  • 00:18:43.220 --> 00:18:45.070
  • BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE, WHEN WE GO
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:46.210
  • THROUGH CRISIS SITUATIONS IN OUR
  • 00:18:46.210 --> 00:18:48.040
  • LIFE, WE'RE ALWAYS TRYIN' TO
  • 00:18:48.040 --> 00:18:49.290
  • FOCUS ON THE THINGS THAT WE
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:51.140
  • CAN'T CONTROL, RIGHT?
  • 00:18:51.140 --> 00:18:53.140
  • WE'RE TRYIN' TO FOCUS ON THE
  • 00:18:53.140 --> 00:18:54.160
  • THINGS THAT WE CANNOT CONTROL AT
  • 00:18:54.160 --> 00:18:55.290
  • ALL INSTEAD OF FOCUSIN' ON
  • 00:18:55.290 --> 00:18:56.220
  • SOMETHING THAT WE CAN CONTROL.
  • 00:18:56.220 --> 00:18:58.070

  • NOW?"
  • 00:18:58.290 --> 00:18:59.200
  • WELL, I CAN GET INTO MY WORD.
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:01.060
  • THAT TAKES NOBODY ELSE
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:02.280
  • PERMISSION BUT MY OWN.
  • 00:19:02.280 --> 00:19:05.040
  • I CAN REHAB MY BODY, REHAB MY

  • ALONG THE WAY.
  • 00:19:16.220 --> 00:19:18.240

  • LIKE, AT 12 A.M.
  • 00:19:28.220 --> 00:19:29.230
  • NOBODY WAS THERE, SO WE CAN
  • 00:19:29.230 --> 00:19:30.200
  • ACTUALLY RECORD-- 'CAUSE WE'RE
  • 00:19:30.200 --> 00:19:31.190

  • AND WHILE WE'RE DOING THIS LIVE
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:40.030
  • STREAM, PEOPLE WOULD START TO
  • 00:19:40.030 --> 00:19:41.080
  • ASK QUESTIONS.
  • 00:19:41.080 --> 00:19:41.230
  • THEY WERE LIKE, "WELL, WHAT
  • 00:19:41.230 --> 00:19:42.200
  • ABOUT THIS?"
  • 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:43.140
  • OR "WHAT DID YOU DO WHEN YOU LET
  • 00:19:43.140 --> 00:19:44.170
  • GO OF FOOTBALL?"
  • 00:19:44.170 --> 00:19:45.140
  • "HOW DO I BUILD MY RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:19:45.140 --> 00:19:46.220
  • WITH GOD?"
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:47.210
  • ALL THESE QUESTIONS, AND I WOULD
  • 00:19:47.210 --> 00:19:48.240
  • ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS, AND SO
  • 00:19:48.240 --> 00:19:49.270
  • IT GOT TO A POINT WHERE I WAS
  • 00:19:49.270 --> 00:19:51.150
  • LIKE, "MAYBE I SHOULD PICK UP MY
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:53.040
  • PHONE AND RECORD SOME VIDEOS."
  • 00:19:54.030 --> 00:19:57.030

  • A CAMERA.
  • 00:20:01.000 --> 00:20:02.110
  • I HAD MY CELL PHONE, AND I MADE
  • 00:20:02.110 --> 00:20:03.250
  • TOO MANY VIDEOS BECAUSE I FELT

  • WAS TOO LONG.
  • 00:20:06.170 --> 00:20:07.120
  • I WOULDN'T WATCH ANYTHING OVER

  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:10.010

  • HARD WAS BECAUSE ANTHONY HAD
  • 00:22:20.100 --> 00:22:22.190
  • BEEN ON BOTH OF OUR HEARTS, AND,
  • 00:22:22.190 --> 00:22:24.120
  • YOU KNOW, AS YOU GET OUT OF
  • 00:22:24.120 --> 00:22:26.070

  • EVERY SINGLE DAY, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:22:29.000 --> 00:22:30.060
  • AND IT WAS HARD FOR ME BECAUSE,
  • 00:22:30.060 --> 00:22:33.000
  • WHEN THEY FOUND HIM, I WAS ON MY
  • 00:22:33.010 --> 00:22:36.010
  • WAY, EVEN THOUGH WE DIDN'T MAKE
  • 00:22:36.090 --> 00:22:39.090
  • IT, BUT I WAS ON MY WAY TO GO
  • 00:22:39.090 --> 00:22:41.100
  • PARTYIN'.
  • 00:22:44.020 --> 00:22:47.020
  • I WAS ON MY WAY TO GO TURN UP
  • 00:22:47.020 --> 00:22:47.230
  • AND ALL THAT STUFF, AND I WAS
  • 00:22:47.230 --> 00:22:48.230
  • LIKE, "WOW," LIKE, "I'M SO
  • 00:22:48.230 --> 00:22:50.050
  • WRAPPED UP IN THIS FACADE WORLD
  • 00:22:50.050 --> 00:22:51.190
  • THAT I DIDN'T EVEN CHECK ON MY
  • 00:22:51.190 --> 00:22:52.290
  • FRIEND, EVEN AT TIMES," AND SO I
  • 00:22:52.290 --> 00:22:55.030
  • HAD SO MUCH GUILT, BUT I KNEW
  • 00:22:55.030 --> 00:22:57.250
  • GUILT WASN'T GONNA SERVE ME IN
  • 00:22:57.250 --> 00:22:59.190
  • ANY TYPE OF WAY, MOVIN' FORWARD,
  • 00:22:59.190 --> 00:23:01.100
  • SO I GO TO HIS SERVICE AND SPEAK
  • 00:23:01.100 --> 00:23:03.030
  • AT HIS SERVICE, AND IT WAS A
  • 00:23:05.050 --> 00:23:08.050
  • PROMISE THAT I MADE TO HIM, AND
  • 00:23:08.050 --> 00:23:09.040
  • I SAID, "ANTHONY, THE ONLY WAY I
  • 00:23:09.040 --> 00:23:11.250
  • FEEL LIKE I CAN REMOVE THIS
  • 00:23:11.250 --> 00:23:13.030
  • GUILT IS THAT I MAKE SURE THAT
  • 00:23:13.030 --> 00:23:16.020
  • OTHER PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, WHEN
  • 00:23:16.020 --> 00:23:18.150
  • THEY GO THROUGH DEPRESSION, WHEN
  • 00:23:18.150 --> 00:23:19.160
  • THEY LOSE SOMEONE OR
  • 00:23:19.160 --> 00:23:21.000
  • SOMETHING--" BECAUSE I DON'T
  • 00:23:21.000 --> 00:23:22.140
  • KNOW THE EXACT REASON WHY HE
  • 00:23:22.140 --> 00:23:23.080
  • TOOK HIS LIFE, BUT I BELIEVE
  • 00:23:23.080 --> 00:23:24.040
  • IT'S BECAUSE SOMEONE LEFT HIS
  • 00:23:24.040 --> 00:23:25.040
  • LIFE.
  • 00:23:25.040 --> 00:23:26.200
  • I BELIEVE BECAUSE HE LOST
  • 00:23:26.200 --> 00:23:28.210
  • FOOTBALL ALSO, AND I BELIEVE
  • 00:23:28.210 --> 00:23:30.080
  • THAT HE THOUGHT THERE WAS NO
  • 00:23:30.080 --> 00:23:31.270
  • OTHER WAY OUT, AND SO WHEN
  • 00:23:31.270 --> 00:23:33.270
  • PEOPLE SEE MY VIDEOS ABOUT "YOUR
  • 00:23:33.270 --> 00:23:34.260
  • LIFE ISN'T OVER," OR PEOPLE ASK
  • 00:23:34.260 --> 00:23:37.170
  • TRENT, "WHY DO YOU TALK ABOUT
  • 00:23:37.170 --> 00:23:38.150
  • REMOVAL SO MUCH?"
  • 00:23:38.150 --> 00:23:39.040
  • BECAUSE IT WAS MY PROMISE TO HIM
  • 00:23:39.040 --> 00:23:40.260
  • THAT, WHEN SOMEBODY LOSES
  • 00:23:40.260 --> 00:23:42.090
  • SOMETHIN' IN THEIR LIFE, WHETHER
  • 00:23:42.090 --> 00:23:43.120
  • IT'S A JOB, RELATIONSHIP, OR

  • DREAM, I'M GONNA MAKE SURE THAT
  • 00:23:44.230 --> 00:23:46.170
  • THEY KNOW THEIR LIFE ISN'T OVER.
  • 00:23:46.170 --> 00:23:48.210
  • AND ANTHONY, NO KIDDING, HE'S
  • 00:23:48.210 --> 00:23:51.120
  • MORE ALIVE IN MY LIFE THAN HE'S
  • 00:23:51.120 --> 00:23:53.010
  • EVER BEEN.

  • THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:24:01.290 --> 00:24:04.140
  • WHAT KIND OF ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD
  • 00:24:04.170 --> 00:24:07.170
  • YOU HAVE FOR SOMEONE WHO
  • 00:24:07.170 --> 00:24:09.190
  • NEGLECTED TO CALL HIS FRIEND OR
  • 00:24:09.190 --> 00:24:11.080
  • MADE ANOTHER KIND OF MISTAKE?
  • 00:24:12.000 --> 00:24:15.000
  • WHAT KIND OF ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD
  • 00:24:15.000 --> 00:24:16.040
  • YOU HAVE FOR THAT PERSON?

  • WHETHER IT'S A FRIEND THAT
  • 00:24:20.110 --> 00:24:21.100
  • COMMITTED SUICIDE OR WHETHER

  • THE NOW, RIGHT?
  • 00:24:26.040 --> 00:24:27.280
  • AND JUST BECAUSE YOU MADE
  • 00:24:28.120 --> 00:24:31.120
  • MISTAKES DOESN'T MEAN YOU ARE
  • 00:24:31.120 --> 00:24:33.040
  • ONE, AND I LOVE TO TELL PEOPLE
  • 00:24:33.040 --> 00:24:35.030
  • THAT "YOU'RE NOT YOUR PAST," AND
  • 00:24:35.030 --> 00:24:36.080
  • IT'S HARD BECAUSE I KNOW, EVEN
  • 00:24:36.080 --> 00:24:37.120
  • IN MY LIFE-- AND I'M SURE YOU
  • 00:24:37.120 --> 00:24:38.240
  • CAN ATTEST TO THIS TOO-- IT'S
  • 00:24:38.240 --> 00:24:39.230
  • LIKE, WHEN YOU MAKE YOUR CHANGE,
  • 00:24:39.230 --> 00:24:41.080
  • WHEN YOU TRY TO DO BETTER WITH
  • 00:24:41.080 --> 00:24:42.010
  • YOUR LIFE, A LOT OF TIMES,
  • 00:24:42.010 --> 00:24:42.270
  • PEOPLE DON'T WANNA SEE THAT.
  • 00:24:42.270 --> 00:24:44.050
  • YOU KNOW, THEY TRY TO CHAIN YOU
  • 00:24:44.050 --> 00:24:45.110
  • TO YOUR PAST AND WHO YOU USED TO
  • 00:24:45.110 --> 00:24:47.080
  • BE AND WHAT YOU USED TO DO, AND
  • 00:24:47.080 --> 00:24:48.160
  • THEY BRING UP, LIKE, "OH, I
  • 00:24:48.160 --> 00:24:49.180
  • REMEMBER YOU IN HIGH SCHOOL."
  • 00:24:49.180 --> 00:24:50.230
  • I'M, JUST, LIKE, "HIGH SCHOOL--
  • 00:24:50.230 --> 00:24:51.180
  • WHAT?"
  • 00:24:51.180 --> 00:24:52.030
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:24:52.030 --> 00:24:53.080
  • BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE NEVER MOVE
  • 00:24:53.080 --> 00:24:55.070
  • INTO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED THEM TO
  • 00:24:55.070 --> 00:24:56.260
  • MOVE INTO BECAUSE THEY'RE SO
  • 00:24:56.260 --> 00:24:58.190
  • AFRAID OF BEIN' JUDGED.
  • 00:24:58.190 --> 00:25:01.190
  • THEY'RE SO AFRAID OF THE
  • 00:25:01.190 --> 00:25:02.070
  • PERFECTION THING.
  • 00:25:02.070 --> 00:25:03.000
  • REALIZE, LIFE IS NOT ABOUT
  • 00:25:03.000 --> 00:25:04.090
  • PERFECTION.
  • 00:25:04.090 --> 00:25:05.080
  • IT'S ABOUT PROGRESSION, AND THE
  • 00:25:05.080 --> 00:25:06.180
  • MORE YOU CAN OPEN UP AND THE
  • 00:25:06.180 --> 00:25:09.010
  • MORE YOU CAN SHOW YOUR REAL
  • 00:25:09.010 --> 00:25:10.060
  • AUTHENTIC SELF, YOU BECOME
  • 00:25:10.060 --> 00:25:11.060
  • RELATABLE.
  • 00:25:11.060 --> 00:25:13.040
  • YOU KNOW, I REMEMBER GROWIN' UP
  • 00:25:13.040 --> 00:25:14.010
  • IN CHURCH, YOU KNOW, AND I WOULD
  • 00:25:14.010 --> 00:25:15.120
  • SEE PASTORS, AND, FOR ME, FOR ME
  • 00:25:15.120 --> 00:25:17.090
  • PERSONALLY, I WAS LIKE, "I CAN
  • 00:25:17.130 --> 00:25:20.130
  • NEVER BE LIKE THAT," BECAUSE
  • 00:25:20.130 --> 00:25:22.060
  • THEY WEREN'T SHARING ANY OF
  • 00:25:22.060 --> 00:25:25.020
  • THEIR STRUGGLE AT ALL OR
  • 00:25:25.020 --> 00:25:25.200
  • ANYTHING THAT THEY DEAL WITH.
  • 00:25:25.200 --> 00:25:26.200
  • I'M BLESSED THAT I HAD A
  • 00:25:26.200 --> 00:25:28.240
  • FATHER THAT WAS A PASTOR.
  • 00:25:28.240 --> 00:25:29.280
  • MY DAD WOULD OPEN UP AND SAY,
  • 00:25:29.280 --> 00:25:30.190
  • "LISTEN, I'VE STRUGGLED WITH
  • 00:25:30.190 --> 00:25:31.170
  • THIS.
  • 00:25:31.170 --> 00:25:33.080
  • I STRUGGLE WITH THIS NOW."
  • 00:25:33.080 --> 00:25:33.270
  • AND THAT MAKES IT MORE
  • 00:25:33.270 --> 00:25:34.230
  • RELATABLE,
  • 00:25:34.230 --> 00:25:36.000
  • AND SO ONCE I START SEEIN'
  • 00:25:36.000 --> 00:25:37.140
  • PASTORS AND SPEAKERS TALK
  • 00:25:37.140 --> 00:25:38.260
  • ABOUT-- I'M LIKE, "OH, YOU GO
  • 00:25:38.260 --> 00:25:40.040
  • THROUGH THIS TOO, BUT THIS IS
  • 00:25:40.040 --> 00:25:41.190
  • HOW YOU GET THROUGH IT?
  • 00:25:41.190 --> 00:25:42.120
  • OH, THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO
  • 00:25:42.120 --> 00:25:43.050
  • DEPEND ON GOD AND LEAN ON GOD.
  • 00:25:43.050 --> 00:25:44.020
  • OKAY, I GET IT NOW."
  • 00:25:44.020 --> 00:25:46.030
  • AND SO I JUST WANNA TELL
  • 00:25:46.030 --> 00:25:46.210
  • PEOPLE THIS:
  • 00:25:46.210 --> 00:25:47.260
  • YOUR TRANSPARENCY WILL LEAD TO
  • 00:25:47.260 --> 00:25:49.010
  • OTHER PEOPLE'S TRANSFORMATION.
  • 00:25:49.010 --> 00:25:50.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:25:54.010 --> 00:25:57.010
  • - CLIFTON: YOU HAVE A VIDEO
  • 00:25:57.010 --> 00:25:59.050
  • THAT SPEAKS TO THE ISSUE OF REAL
  • 00:25:59.050 --> 00:26:02.020
  • FRIENDSHIP AND THAT EVERYBODY'S
  • 00:26:02.020 --> 00:26:05.000
  • NOT YOUR FRIEND.
  • 00:26:05.000 --> 00:26:07.030
  • - TRENT: YEAH.
  • 00:26:07.030 --> 00:26:07.170

  • ARE YOU GOING THROUGH WITH YOUR
  • 00:26:17.060 --> 00:26:17.280
  • FRIENDS AGAIN, OR WHAT?
  • 00:26:17.280 --> 00:26:19.140
  • - ANNIE: I THOUGHT SHE WAS MY
  • 00:26:19.140 --> 00:26:20.120
  • FRIEND.
  • 00:26:20.120 --> 00:26:20.240
  • I HAD A TALK WITH HER THE OTHER

  • THIS.
  • 00:26:30.100 --> 00:26:31.100
  • EVERYBODY AIN'T YOUR FRIEND.
  • 00:26:31.100 --> 00:26:34.060
  • JUST BECAUSE THEY STANDIN' NEXT
  • 00:26:34.060 --> 00:26:35.180

  • JUST BECAUSE THEY SMILE IN YOUR

  • UNDERSTAND REAL SITUATIONS
  • 00:26:42.000 --> 00:26:43.180

  • GON' SEE WHO'S DOWN FOR YOU,
  • 00:26:49.140 --> 00:26:50.140
  • STRAIGHT-UP.
  • 00:26:50.140 --> 00:26:51.080
  • I JUST GOTTA BE REAL.
  • 00:26:51.080 --> 00:26:52.270
  • EVERYBODY IN YOUR CIRCLE MIGHT

  • NOT BE IN YOUR CORNER.
  • 00:26:54.100 --> 00:26:56.090
  • EVERYBODY YOU CALL A "FRIEND,"
  • 00:26:56.090 --> 00:26:57.120
  • MIGHT NOT BE A FRIEND.
  • 00:26:57.120 --> 00:26:59.170
  • PEOPLE PRETEND WELL.
  • 00:26:59.170 --> 00:27:00.220

  • WITH YOU.
  • 00:27:07.090 --> 00:27:08.220
  • JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE YOUR BEST
  • 00:27:08.220 --> 00:27:10.020
  • FRIEND DOESN'T MEAN THEY ALWAYS
  • 00:27:10.020 --> 00:27:11.150

  • STRENGTH OF THE FRIENDSHIP.
  • 00:27:16.050 --> 00:27:17.240
  • DON'T LET THE HISTORY KEEP YOU
  • 00:27:17.240 --> 00:27:18.250
  • IN THE MISERY.
  • 00:27:18.250 --> 00:27:21.040
  • JUST BECAUSE THEY GREW UP WITH

  • 00:27:22.080 --> 00:27:23.170
  • YOU GROW.
  • 00:27:23.170 --> 00:27:24.030
  • I MEAN, WHAT'S THE POINT OF
  • 00:27:24.030 --> 00:27:26.010
  • HAVING PEOPLE AROUND YOU THAT
  • 00:27:26.010 --> 00:27:27.200
  • AIN'T FOR YOU?
  • 00:27:27.200 --> 00:27:29.200
  • WHAT'S THE POINT OF HAVING
  • 00:27:29.200 --> 00:27:30.150
  • PEOPLE STAND BY YOUR SIDE THAT
  • 00:27:30.150 --> 00:27:32.080

  • BECAUSE YOU'RE LOYAL?
  • 00:27:35.080 --> 00:27:36.030
  • THAT'S NOT LOYALTY.
  • 00:27:36.030 --> 00:27:38.050
  • THAT'S STUPIDITY.
  • 00:27:38.050 --> 00:27:39.110
  • DON'T LET YOUR LOYALTY BECOME
  • 00:27:39.110 --> 00:27:40.160
  • YOUR SLAVERY.
  • 00:27:40.160 --> 00:27:41.220
  • BE LOYAL TO YOURSELF FIRST.
  • 00:27:41.220 --> 00:27:43.090
  • BE LOYAL TO SOMEONE WHO BRINGS
  • 00:27:43.090 --> 00:27:45.180
  • YOUR LIFE PEACE, NOT PROBLEMS.
  • 00:27:45.180 --> 00:27:47.020
  • BE LOYAL TO SOMEONE WHO BRINGS

  • YOUR LIFE DREAMS, NOT DRAMA,
  • 00:27:49.120 --> 00:27:50.160
  • GOALS, NOT GOSSIP.
  • 00:27:50.160 --> 00:27:51.220
  • BE LOYAL TO SOMEONE WHO'S GON'
  • 00:27:51.220 --> 00:27:53.130
  • STAND UP FOR YOU WHEN YOU AIN'T

  • THERE TO EVEN STAND UP FOR
  • 00:27:54.260 --> 00:27:56.140
  • YOURSELF.
  • 00:27:56.140 --> 00:27:57.000
  • STOP BEIN' LOYAL TO THE WRONG
  • 00:27:57.000 --> 00:27:58.010
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:27:58.010 --> 00:27:59.200
  • YOU CANNOT CONTROL SOMEONE'S
  • 00:27:59.200 --> 00:28:00.240
  • LOYALTY.
  • 00:28:00.240 --> 00:28:02.060
  • NO MATTER HOW GOOD YOU ARE TO
  • 00:28:02.060 --> 00:28:03.150
  • THEM DOESN'T MEAN THEY GON'
  • 00:28:03.150 --> 00:28:04.170
  • TREAT YOU THE SAME.
  • 00:28:04.170 --> 00:28:05.170
  • NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO
  • 00:28:05.170 --> 00:28:07.130
  • YOU DOESN'T MEAN THEY GON' VALUE
  • 00:28:07.130 --> 00:28:09.020
  • THE SAME.
  • 00:28:09.020 --> 00:28:10.150
  • SOMETIMES IT'S THE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:28:10.150 --> 00:28:12.010
  • YOU LOVE THE MOST TURN OUT TO BE
  • 00:28:12.010 --> 00:28:14.140
  • THE PEOPLE THAT YOU CAN TRUST
  • 00:28:14.140 --> 00:28:15.130
  • THE LEAST.
  • 00:28:15.130 --> 00:28:16.050
  • FAKE PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU
  • 00:28:16.050 --> 00:28:17.220
  • REAL REASONS TO CUT THEM OFF.
  • 00:28:17.220 --> 00:28:20.020
  • I THINK IT'S TIME YOU DO SOME

  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:28:22.160 --> 00:28:24.070
  • LISTEN TO ME: IF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:28:24.070 --> 00:28:25.210
  • AROUND YOU DON'T WANNA SEE YOU
  • 00:28:25.210 --> 00:28:27.030

  • DON'T WANNA SEE THE BEST YOU, IF
  • 00:28:28.290 --> 00:28:30.180
  • THEY DON'T INSPIRE YOU OR

  • YOU GOT A CAGE, AND SOMETIMES
  • 00:28:36.140 --> 00:28:38.080
  • THE BEST WAY TO ADD TO YOUR LIFE
  • 00:28:38.080 --> 00:28:40.230
  • IS NOT TO ADD TO IT, BUT TO

  • SUBTRACT FROM IT.
  • 00:28:41.130 --> 00:28:43.190

  • 00:29:08.000 --> 00:29:09.140
  • - CLIFTON: YOU'RE DOIN' A GREAT
  • 00:29:09.140 --> 00:29:10.080
  • JOB.
  • 00:29:10.080 --> 00:29:10.210
  • - TRENT: THANK YOU.
  • 00:29:10.210 --> 00:29:11.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:29:11.260 --> 00:29:13.230
  • - CLIFTON: NOW, IF PEOPLE HAVE
  • 00:29:13.230 --> 00:29:14.150
  • HAD BAD CHAPTERS IN THEIR LIVES,
  • 00:29:14.150 --> 00:29:15.070
  • HOW CAN THEY END THEIR STORY
  • 00:29:15.070 --> 00:29:16.210
  • WELL?
  • 00:29:17.280 --> 00:29:20.280
  • - TRENT: YEAH, WELL, THAT'S A
  • 00:29:20.280 --> 00:29:21.190
  • AND I LOVE TO SAY THAT JUST
  • 00:29:23.220 --> 00:29:24.120
  • BECAUSE YOU HAD SOME BAD
  • 00:29:24.120 --> 00:29:25.000
  • CHAPTERS DOESN'T MEAN YOUR STORY
  • 00:29:25.000 --> 00:29:25.220
  • CAN'T END WELL.
  • 00:29:25.220 --> 00:29:26.200
  • IT'S ABOUT UNDERSTANDING WHAT
  • 00:29:26.200 --> 00:29:29.000
  • PAIN REALLY IS TOO, AND TALKIN'
  • 00:29:29.000 --> 00:29:31.210
  • ABOUT THIS, I MEAN, WE ALL CAN
  • 00:29:31.210 --> 00:29:33.260
  • RELATE MAYBE TO WORKIN' OUT OR
  • 00:29:33.260 --> 00:29:34.220
  • LIKE, WHEN YOU GO TO THE GYM OR
  • 00:29:37.080 --> 00:29:38.000
  • YOU'RE RUNNING YOUR MILES, WHEN
  • 00:29:38.000 --> 00:29:38.220
  • DO YOU GET STRONGER?
  • 00:29:38.220 --> 00:29:39.190
  • YOU DON'T GET STRONGER WHEN IT'S
  • 00:29:39.190 --> 00:29:40.110
  • EASY.
  • 00:29:40.110 --> 00:29:40.200
  • YOU GET STRONGER WHEN IT'S
  • 00:29:40.200 --> 00:29:41.090
  • HARDER, AND SO THE THING I LOVE
  • 00:29:41.090 --> 00:29:43.090
  • TO TELL PEOPLE IS THAT AT THE
  • 00:29:43.090 --> 00:29:44.090
  • FOUNDATION OF STRENGTH IS PAIN,
  • 00:29:44.090 --> 00:29:45.160
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:29:45.160 --> 00:29:47.190
  • AT THE FOUNDATION OF STRUGGLE IS
  • 00:29:47.190 --> 00:29:49.090
  • HOW YOU GROW.
  • 00:29:50.170 --> 00:29:53.170
  • AT THE FOUNDATION OF GROWTH IS
  • 00:29:53.170 --> 00:29:55.260
  • STRUGGLE, AND SO WHEN YOU
  • 00:29:55.260 --> 00:29:56.240
  • REALIZE THAT, YOU'RE ABLE TO
  • 00:29:56.240 --> 00:29:57.240
  • GROW, AND I TELL PEOPLE, LIKE,
  • 00:29:57.240 --> 00:29:58.220
  • "YOUR CURRENT SITUATION IS NOT
  • 00:29:58.220 --> 00:29:59.130
  • YOUR FINAL DESTINATION, SO YOU
  • 00:29:59.130 --> 00:30:00.240
  • HAVE TO FORWARD-THINK AND LOOK
  • 00:30:00.240 --> 00:30:02.050
  • FORWARD IN YOUR LIFE AND SAY,
  • 00:30:02.050 --> 00:30:03.110
  • 'OKAY, THIS IS A STORM.
  • 00:30:03.110 --> 00:30:04.130
  • THIS IS A SEASON.
  • 00:30:04.130 --> 00:30:05.280
  • THIS IS A CHAPTER.'"
  • 00:30:05.280 --> 00:30:08.260
  • BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE
  • 00:30:08.260 --> 00:30:09.210
  • SOME BAD CHAPTERS,
  • 00:30:09.210 --> 00:30:10.140
  • YOU CAN STILL TURN THE PAGE,
  • 00:30:10.140 --> 00:30:11.040
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:30:11.040 --> 00:30:12.000
  • GOD IS THE AUTHOR OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:30:12.000 --> 00:30:13.030
  • AND SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:30:13.030 --> 00:30:15.030
  • SENSE IN WHAT YOU'RE GOIN'
  • 00:30:15.030 --> 00:30:17.020
  • THROUGH UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY GET
  • 00:30:17.020 --> 00:30:18.070
  • THROUGH IT, AND WHEN YOU LOOK
  • 00:30:18.070 --> 00:30:19.240
  • BACK, YOU CAN CONNECT THE DOTS,
  • 00:30:19.240 --> 00:30:20.240
  • SO, FOR ME, THE TIMES I WAS
  • 00:30:20.240 --> 00:30:22.140
  • COMPLAININ' ABOUT, LIKE, "GOD,
  • 00:30:22.140 --> 00:30:23.240
  • WHY DID YOU LET ME GET--" IT'S
  • 00:30:23.240 --> 00:30:24.270
  • FUNNY HOW WE BLAME GOD FOR THE
  • 00:30:24.270 --> 00:30:25.280
  • SITUATION WE PUT OURSELVES IN,
  • 00:30:25.280 --> 00:30:26.240
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:30:26.240 --> 00:30:27.130
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:30:27.130 --> 00:30:27.270
  • - CLIFTON: YEAH.
  • 00:30:27.270 --> 00:30:28.230
  • - TRENT: BUT, LIKE, "GOD, WHY'D
  • 00:30:28.230 --> 00:30:29.150
  • YOU LET ME GET CUT?"
  • 00:30:29.150 --> 00:30:30.110
  • AND NOW I REALIZE, OF COURSE,
  • 00:30:30.110 --> 00:30:32.130
  • I DID SOME THINGS TO GET MYSELF
  • 00:30:32.130 --> 00:30:33.240
  • CUT.
  • 00:30:33.240 --> 00:30:34.260
  • I TAKE THAT RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:30:34.260 --> 00:30:35.160
  • BUT HE HAD A GREATER PURPOSE IN
  • 00:30:35.250 --> 00:30:38.250
  • MY LIFE THAN THE PAIN THAT I'M
  • 00:30:38.250 --> 00:30:39.220
  • CURRENTLY GOIN' THROUGH.
  • 00:30:39.220 --> 00:30:40.220
  • SO REALIZE THAT WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:30:40.220 --> 00:30:42.290
  • GOIN' THROUGH, IT QUALIFIES YOU
  • 00:30:42.290 --> 00:30:44.060
  • TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE GET THROUGH
  • 00:30:44.060 --> 00:30:45.250
  • IT.
  • 00:30:45.250 --> 00:30:46.130
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:30:46.200 --> 00:30:49.200
  • IF WE WERE TO-- I LIKE TO USE
  • 00:30:49.200 --> 00:30:50.200
  • THIS ANALOGY: IF YOU WERE TO GO
  • 00:30:50.200 --> 00:30:52.220
  • HIKE AND YOU'VE NEVER BEEN ON
  • 00:30:52.220 --> 00:30:55.080
  • THIS TRAIL BEFORE AND I COME TO
  • 00:30:55.080 --> 00:30:56.050
  • YOU AND I SAID, "HERE'S A MAP,
  • 00:30:56.050 --> 00:30:57.040
  • OKAY?
  • 00:30:57.040 --> 00:30:57.260
  • I NEVER HIKED THIS TRAIL BEFORE,
  • 00:30:57.260 --> 00:30:59.200
  • BUT HERE'S A MAP, AND THIS IS
  • 00:30:59.200 --> 00:31:01.290
  • HOW YOU GET THROUGH IT."
  • 00:31:01.290 --> 00:31:02.270
  • YOU WOULD LOOK AT
  • 00:31:02.270 --> 00:31:03.280
  • ME AND BE LIKE,
  • 00:31:03.280 --> 00:31:04.150
  • "I'M NOT TAKIN' THAT MAP."
  • 00:31:04.150 --> 00:31:05.080
  • BUT IF I CAME TO YOU AND SAID,
  • 00:31:05.080 --> 00:31:06.150
  • "LISTEN, I HIKE THIS TRAIL ALL
  • 00:31:06.150 --> 00:31:07.210
  • THE TIME.
  • 00:31:07.210 --> 00:31:08.170
  • I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT.
  • 00:31:08.170 --> 00:31:09.100
  • LOOK, LOOK FOR THIS, LOOK FOR
  • 00:31:09.100 --> 00:31:10.090
  • THAT.
  • 00:31:10.090 --> 00:31:10.290
  • HERE'S A MAP."
  • 00:31:10.290 --> 00:31:11.240
  • YOU WOULD, LIKE, "OKAY,
  • 00:31:11.240 --> 00:31:12.280
  • I'LL TRUST THIS GUY, AND
  • 00:31:12.280 --> 00:31:13.240
  • I'LL TAKE THAT MAP."
  • 00:31:13.240 --> 00:31:15.020
  • AND IT'S THE SAME
  • 00:31:15.020 --> 00:31:17.250
  • THING IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:31:17.250 --> 00:31:19.280
  • LIKE, REALIZE EVERYTHING YOU'VE
  • 00:31:19.280 --> 00:31:20.200
  • BEEN THROUGH, YOU'RE LIKE THAT
  • 00:31:20.200 --> 00:31:21.250
  • TRAIL THAT YOU'VE HIKED.
  • 00:31:21.250 --> 00:31:22.240
  • NOW YOU CAN GIVE PEOPLE THE MAP
  • 00:31:22.240 --> 00:31:24.220
  • IN CONFIDENCE, AND NOW YOU CAN
  • 00:31:24.220 --> 00:31:25.160
  • BE AN EXPERT IN WHATEVER IT IS,
  • 00:31:25.160 --> 00:31:26.240
  • AND PEOPLE CAN, LIKE, LOOK AT
  • 00:31:26.240 --> 00:31:27.290
  • YOUR LIFE AND YOUR STORY AND
  • 00:31:27.290 --> 00:31:28.190
  • REALIZE, "OKAY, I CAN REALLY
  • 00:31:28.190 --> 00:31:29.200
  • FOLLOW THEM, FOLLOW THAT PERSON,
  • 00:31:29.200 --> 00:31:31.190
  • AND REALLY BUILD MY LIFE"
  • 00:31:31.190 --> 00:31:32.170
  • BECAUSE OF YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:31:32.170 --> 00:31:34.180
  • AND REALIZE, EVERYTHING YOU'VE
  • 00:31:34.180 --> 00:31:35.090
  • BEEN THROUGH IS QUALIFYING YOU.
  • 00:31:35.090 --> 00:31:37.060
  • - CLIFTON: PRAISE THE LORD,
  • 00:31:37.060 --> 00:31:37.260
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:31:37.260 --> 00:31:38.140
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:31:42.210 --> 00:31:45.210
  • DISCOVERING YOUR PURPOSE CAME AT
  • 00:31:45.210 --> 00:31:47.210
  • ONE MOMENT, BUT DEVELOPING YOUR
  • 00:31:47.210 --> 00:31:49.060
  • PURPOSE WAS A PROCESS.
  • 00:31:53.010 --> 00:31:56.010
  • GIVE US A FEW MORE DETAILS ABOUT
  • 00:31:56.010 --> 00:31:56.250
  • THE PROCESS OF PURSUING-- OOH,
  • 00:31:57.170 --> 00:32:00.190
  • GO AHEAD, CLIF--
  • 00:32:00.190 --> 00:32:02.060
  • - TRENT: YEAH.
  • 00:32:02.060 --> 00:32:02.200
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:32:02.200 --> 00:32:03.130
  • - CLIFTON: -- PURSUING YOUR
  • 00:32:03.130 --> 00:32:04.030
  • PURPOSE.
  • 00:32:04.030 --> 00:32:05.010
  • - TRENT: SO MY PROCESS OF
  • 00:32:06.070 --> 00:32:09.070
  • PURSUIN' IT, I LIKE TO ALWAYS
  • 00:32:09.070 --> 00:32:09.280
  • BREAK IT DOWN INTO SOME
  • 00:32:09.280 --> 00:32:10.280
  • FRAMEWORK THAT PEOPLE CAN TAKE
  • 00:32:10.280 --> 00:32:11.270
  • AWAY, AND, FOR ME, IT WAS THREE
  • 00:32:11.270 --> 00:32:13.230
  • R'S.
  • 00:32:13.280 --> 00:32:16.280
  • THE FIRST WAS "REALITY."
  • 00:32:16.280 --> 00:32:19.190
  • YOU'LL NEVER WIN YOUR
  • 00:32:19.190 --> 00:32:20.210
  • WAR BY RUNNIN'
  • 00:32:20.210 --> 00:32:21.230
  • FROM YOUR BATTLES, AND SO, FOR
  • 00:32:21.230 --> 00:32:22.250
  • ME, I HAD TO FACE MY TRUTH.
  • 00:32:22.250 --> 00:32:25.040
  • I HAD TO STOP RUNNING.
  • 00:32:25.040 --> 00:32:27.000
  • I HAD TO STOP TRYIN' TO HIDE IT
  • 00:32:27.000 --> 00:32:28.120
  • AND SWEEP IT UNDER A RUG.
  • 00:32:28.120 --> 00:32:29.140
  • I HAD TO LOOK AT MYSELF IN THE
  • 00:32:29.140 --> 00:32:30.260
  • MIRROR AND SAY, TRENT, YOU'RE
  • 00:32:30.260 --> 00:32:31.290
  • TRIPPIN'.
  • 00:32:31.290 --> 00:32:32.170
  • TRENT, YOU NEED TO ACTUALLY MAKE
  • 00:32:32.170 --> 00:32:34.100
  • THIS CHANGE, NOT JUST FOR YOU,
  • 00:32:34.100 --> 00:32:35.130
  • BUT THE PEOPLE WHO NEED YOU TO
  • 00:32:35.130 --> 00:32:37.040
  • MAKE IT, THE PEOPLE WHO NEED YOU
  • 00:32:37.040 --> 00:32:38.080
  • TO BE THE BEST YOU."
  • 00:32:38.080 --> 00:32:38.290
  • THE SECOND THING WAS--
  • 00:32:38.290 --> 00:32:41.050
  • THE SECOND R WAS "RELEASE,"
  • 00:32:41.050 --> 00:32:42.110
  • AND JUST LIKE THAT VIDEO,
  • 00:32:42.110 --> 00:32:44.160
  • "EVERYBODY ISN'T YOUR FRIEND,"
  • 00:32:44.160 --> 00:32:45.180
  • IT MIGHT NOT BE FRIENDS.
  • 00:32:45.180 --> 00:32:47.010
  • IT MIGHT BE YOUR OWN HABITS IN
  • 00:32:47.010 --> 00:32:48.090
  • YOUR LIFE, BUT I CAN PROMISE YOU
  • 00:32:48.090 --> 00:32:49.270
  • THIS: THERE ARE CERTAIN BRIDGES
  • 00:32:49.270 --> 00:32:51.220
  • IN YOUR LIFE THAT NEED TO BE
  • 00:32:51.220 --> 00:32:53.040
  • BURNED BECAUSE THERE ARE CERTAIN
  • 00:32:53.040 --> 00:32:54.100
  • THINGS YOUR LIFE CANNOT AFFORD
  • 00:32:54.100 --> 00:32:55.160
  • TO GO BACK TO.
  • 00:32:55.160 --> 00:32:56.140
  • 'CAUSE PEOPLE SAY, "DON'T BURN
  • 00:32:56.140 --> 00:32:58.140
  • BRIDGES"-- LIKE, I KIND OF AGREE
  • 00:32:58.140 --> 00:32:59.160
  • WITH THAT.
  • 00:32:59.160 --> 00:33:00.030
  • THERE ARE CERTAIN BRIDGES YOU
  • 00:33:00.030 --> 00:33:01.230
  • HAVE TO BURN, WHETHER THAT'S
  • 00:33:01.230 --> 00:33:02.210
  • HABITS, WHETHER THAT'S
  • 00:33:02.210 --> 00:33:05.160
  • PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:33:05.160 --> 00:33:06.080
  • LOOK AROUND YOUR CIRCLE.
  • 00:33:06.080 --> 00:33:07.240
  • I MEAN, DO THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU
  • 00:33:07.240 --> 00:33:09.190
  • REALLY WANT THE BEST FOR YOU?
  • 00:33:09.190 --> 00:33:10.100
  • AND SOMETIMES IT'S HARD BECAUSE,
  • 00:33:10.100 --> 00:33:12.250
  • FOR ME, THE HARDEST THING ABOUT
  • 00:33:12.250 --> 00:33:15.080
  • UNDERSTANDIN' THE BRIDGE IN OUR
  • 00:33:15.080 --> 00:33:16.240
  • LIVES, RIGHT?
  • 00:33:16.240 --> 00:33:17.100
  • EVERY PERSON IN YOUR LIFE IS A
  • 00:33:17.100 --> 00:33:19.030
  • BRIDGE.
  • 00:33:19.030 --> 00:33:19.200
  • IT'S EITHER LEADIN' YOU--
  • 00:33:19.200 --> 00:33:20.280
  • THAT PERSON'S EITHER LEADING
  • 00:33:20.280 --> 00:33:22.000
  • YOU TO THE GREATER
  • 00:33:22.000 --> 00:33:23.230
  • YOU OR A LESSER YOU.
  • 00:33:23.230 --> 00:33:25.160
  • AND WHEN YOU HAVE SOMEBODY WHO
  • 00:33:25.160 --> 00:33:26.070
  • GIVES YOU PAIN, IT'S KIND OF
  • 00:33:26.070 --> 00:33:27.110
  • EASY TO IDENTIFY, BUT FOR NE,
  • 00:33:27.110 --> 00:33:29.090
  • THE HARD PART WAS REALIZIN' THAT
  • 00:33:29.090 --> 00:33:31.040
  • THEY WERE GOOD PEOPLE IN MY
  • 00:33:31.040 --> 00:33:33.120
  • LIFE.
  • 00:33:33.120 --> 00:33:33.270
  • IT JUST WASN'T GOOD FOR ME IN
  • 00:33:33.270 --> 00:33:34.270
  • WHERE I WAS GOIN' WITH MY LIFE.
  • 00:33:34.270 --> 00:33:37.030
  • AND SO I HAD TO LET THOSE PEOPLE
  • 00:33:37.030 --> 00:33:38.160
  • GO, AND THE FUNNY THING ABOUT
  • 00:33:38.160 --> 00:33:40.060
  • THAT WITH MY FRIENDS IS THEY
  • 00:33:40.060 --> 00:33:41.230
  • DIDN'T GET IT.
  • 00:33:41.230 --> 00:33:43.110
  • SOME OF 'EM DIDN'T LIKE IT.
  • 00:33:43.110 --> 00:33:44.110
  • SOME OF 'EM BECAME MY "ENEMIES,"
  • 00:33:44.110 --> 00:33:46.040
  • QUOTE, UNQUOTE, BUT NOW I'M
  • 00:33:46.040 --> 00:33:48.240
  • SEEIN' THOSE FRIENDS MAKE THE
  • 00:33:48.240 --> 00:33:50.190
  • CHANGE BECAUSE NOW THEY'VE BEEN
  • 00:33:50.190 --> 00:33:51.140
  • INSPIRED BY MY GROWTH IN MY
  • 00:33:51.140 --> 00:33:52.040
  • LIFE.
  • 00:33:52.040 --> 00:33:53.130
  • SO SOMETIMES IT TAKES YOU
  • 00:33:53.130 --> 00:33:54.090
  • STEPPIN' OUT AND DOIN' THAT.
  • 00:33:54.090 --> 00:33:56.150
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:33:56.150 --> 00:33:58.130
  • AND THE THIRD R IS "REPAIR."
  • 00:33:59.010 --> 00:34:02.030
  • AND REPAIR IS DIGGIN' UP THOSE
  • 00:34:02.030 --> 00:34:04.070
  • BAD SEEDS IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:34:04.070 --> 00:34:05.250
  • WE ALL HAVE-- PEOPLE PLANT SEEDS
  • 00:34:06.130 --> 00:34:09.130
  • IN YOUR LIFE EVERY SINGLE DAY,
  • 00:34:09.130 --> 00:34:10.240
  • BUT I REMEMBER, YOU KNOW, BEING
  • 00:34:10.240 --> 00:34:12.100
  • A YOUNG CHILD, AND A TEACHER
  • 00:34:12.100 --> 00:34:14.130
  • PLANTED A SEED, JUST FOR
  • 00:34:14.130 --> 00:34:15.100
  • EXAMPLE, SAYIN', "TRENT, THROW
  • 00:34:15.100 --> 00:34:18.050
  • AWAY THAT FOOTBALL DREAM.
  • 00:34:18.050 --> 00:34:19.070
  • YOU'RE NOT GONNA DO THAT.
  • 00:34:19.070 --> 00:34:19.260
  • IT ONLY HAPPENS TO CERTAIN TYPE
  • 00:34:19.260 --> 00:34:20.180
  • OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:34:20.180 --> 00:34:20.290
  • IT'S ONLY LESS THAN 1%, AND
  • 00:34:20.290 --> 00:34:22.200
  • YOU'RE GONNA FAIL IF YOU TRY."
  • 00:34:22.200 --> 00:34:25.130
  • EVERY TIME FAILURE CAME UP WITH
  • 00:34:25.130 --> 00:34:27.120
  • SPORTS, THAT TEACHER'S WORDS
  • 00:34:27.140 --> 00:34:30.140
  • REPLAYED IN MY MIND, AND I
  • 00:34:30.140 --> 00:34:31.050
  • BELIEVED THAT.
  • 00:34:31.050 --> 00:34:33.180
  • AND A LOT OF US, WE HAVE SEEDS
  • 00:34:33.180 --> 00:34:35.080
  • PLANTED FROM OUR CHILDHOOD.
  • 00:34:35.080 --> 00:34:36.280
  • WE HAVE SEEDS PLANTED BY FRIENDS
  • 00:34:36.280 --> 00:34:38.100
  • OR WHATEVER, SEEDS OF DOUBT,
  • 00:34:38.100 --> 00:34:39.150
  • SEEDS OF FEAR, SEEDS OF
  • 00:34:39.150 --> 00:34:40.210
  • LIMITATIONS, AND A LOT OF US, WE
  • 00:34:40.210 --> 00:34:42.120
  • KEEP THOSE SEEDS IN OUR LIFE,
  • 00:34:42.120 --> 00:34:43.290
  • AND WE WONDER WHY, WHEN STRUGGLE
  • 00:34:43.290 --> 00:34:45.250
  • SHOWS UP, WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:34:45.250 --> 00:34:47.120
  • FIGHT THROUGH IT.
  • 00:34:47.120 --> 00:34:49.000
  • AND SO, DIG UP THOSE SEEDS AND
  • 00:34:49.000 --> 00:34:50.030
  • REPLACE THOSE SEEDS WITH SEEDS
  • 00:34:50.030 --> 00:34:50.290
  • OF FAITH.
  • 00:34:50.290 --> 00:34:51.150
  • GO BACK TO THE TRUTH THAT GOD
  • 00:34:51.150 --> 00:34:54.110
  • SAID ABOUT YOU, NOT WHAT MAN
  • 00:34:54.110 --> 00:34:55.010
  • TRIES TO SAY ABOUT YOU,
  • 00:34:55.010 --> 00:34:57.140
  • NOT WHAT OPINIONS TRY TO
  • 00:34:57.140 --> 00:34:58.240
  • SAY ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:34:58.240 --> 00:35:00.140
  • WHAT DID GOD SAY ABOUT YOU?
  • 00:35:00.140 --> 00:35:01.040
  • I LIKE TO CALL THAT "FACTS OVER
  • 00:35:01.040 --> 00:35:01.260
  • FEELINGS."
  • 00:35:01.260 --> 00:35:02.070
  • FEELINGS ARE REAL,
  • 00:35:02.070 --> 00:35:03.250
  • BUT THEY AREN'T ALWAYS RIGHT.
  • 00:35:03.250 --> 00:35:04.160
  • PEOPLE SPEAK FEELINGS ON YOU,
  • 00:35:04.160 --> 00:35:06.130
  • AND WHEN PEOPLE THROW FEELINGS
  • 00:35:06.130 --> 00:35:08.240
  • AT YOU, REMIND YOURSELF OF THE
  • 00:35:08.240 --> 00:35:09.150
  • FACTS.
  • 00:35:09.150 --> 00:35:10.160
  • SO WRITE DOWN TEN FACTS THAT GOD
  • 00:35:10.160 --> 00:35:11.260
  • SAID ABOUT YOUR LIFE, EVERY TIME
  • 00:35:11.260 --> 00:35:13.170
  • A SITUATION SHOWS UP TO TELL
  • 00:35:13.170 --> 00:35:14.200
  • YOU, "YO, YOU'RE NOT GONNA BE
  • 00:35:14.200 --> 00:35:16.010
  • NOTHIN'.
  • 00:35:16.010 --> 00:35:16.140
  • YOU'RE NOT GONNA DO NOTHIN'."
  • 00:35:16.140 --> 00:35:17.050
  • WHAT DID GOD SAY ABOUT YOUR
  • 00:35:17.050 --> 00:35:17.270
  • LIFE?
  • 00:35:17.270 --> 00:35:18.110
  • NOT WHAT THAT PERSON SAID ABOUT
  • 00:35:18.110 --> 00:35:19.150
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:35:19.150 --> 00:35:19.290
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:35:19.290 --> 00:35:21.130
  • - CLIFTON: HOW DO YOU GET RID
  • 00:35:22.230 --> 00:35:25.230
  • OF TOXIC PEOPLE?
  • 00:35:25.290 --> 00:35:28.290
  • - TRENT: YES, SO, I MEAN, THE
  • 00:35:29.060 --> 00:35:32.060
  • EASY WAY IS YOU JUST CUT 'EM
  • 00:35:32.060 --> 00:35:33.110
  • OFF, RIGHT?
  • 00:35:33.110 --> 00:35:34.100
  • BUT I WOULD SAY, DEFINITELY,
  • 00:35:34.100 --> 00:35:36.030
  • AND IT'S THE SAME QUESTION THAT
  • 00:35:38.270 --> 00:35:40.030
  • I TALKED ABOUT EARLIER IS THAT
  • 00:35:40.030 --> 00:35:41.090
  • YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF THIS
  • 00:35:41.090 --> 00:35:42.120
  • QUESTION, LIKE, "WHERE IS THIS
  • 00:35:42.120 --> 00:35:44.100
  • RELATIONSHIP LEADING ME?"
  • 00:35:44.100 --> 00:35:45.230
  • I MEAN, CHECK YOUR TEXT
  • 00:35:45.230 --> 00:35:47.110
  • MESSAGES.
  • 00:35:47.110 --> 00:35:48.080
  • GO ON YOUR PHONE AND CHECK YOUR
  • 00:35:48.080 --> 00:35:49.250
  • TEXT MESSAGES.
  • 00:35:49.250 --> 00:35:51.130
  • SEE THE CONVERSATION THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:35:51.130 --> 00:35:52.110
  • IF YOU WANNA BE THE GREATEST
  • 00:35:54.250 --> 00:35:55.150
  • YOU, BUT YOU'RE HAVIN'
  • 00:35:55.150 --> 00:35:56.280
  • CONVERSATIONS ABOUT DRAMA AND
  • 00:35:56.280 --> 00:35:57.190
  • GOSSIP, THINGS THAT GON' PUSH
  • 00:35:57.190 --> 00:35:58.100
  • YOU TOWARDS THAT, THEN MAYBE
  • 00:35:58.100 --> 00:36:01.040
  • IT'S TIME TO CHANGE YOUR CIRCLE.
  • 00:36:01.040 --> 00:36:02.010
  • MAYBE IT'S TRYIN' TO CHANGE YOUR
  • 00:36:02.010 --> 00:36:02.230
  • ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:36:02.230 --> 00:36:03.070
  • AND SO, FOR ME, I HAD TO LOOK AT
  • 00:36:03.070 --> 00:36:05.000
  • THAT.
  • 00:36:05.000 --> 00:36:05.140
  • I WAS LOOKIN' AT MY

  • TALKIN' ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:36:09.210 --> 00:36:10.270
  • WE TALKIN' ABOUT THINGS THAT
  • 00:36:10.270 --> 00:36:11.260
  • DON'T MOVE US FORWARD.
  • 00:36:11.260 --> 00:36:12.160
  • I'M TRYIN' TO STRENGTHEN MY
  • 00:36:12.160 --> 00:36:13.060
  • FAITH.
  • 00:36:13.060 --> 00:36:13.210
  • WE TALKIN' ABOUT THINGS THAT
  • 00:36:13.210 --> 00:36:14.210
  • DON'T STRENGTHEN MY FAITH."
  • 00:36:14.210 --> 00:36:15.190
  • SO HAVE A CONVERSATION, BUT,
  • 00:36:15.190 --> 00:36:17.170
  • EVERYBODY, I'M GONNA BE REAL.
  • 00:36:17.170 --> 00:36:18.270
  • LIKE, EVERYBODY, THAT MIGHT NOT
  • 00:36:18.270 --> 00:36:20.260
  • BE EASY FOR YOU, BUT YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:36:20.260 --> 00:36:22.210
  • MAKE A REAL DECISION, AND LIKE I
  • 00:36:22.210 --> 00:36:24.170
  • SAID IN THE VIDEO, SOMETIMES
  • 00:36:24.170 --> 00:36:25.070
  • PEOPLE HAND YOU THE SCISSORS,
  • 00:36:25.070 --> 00:36:27.170
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:36:27.170 --> 00:36:28.010
  • SO YOU CAN'T FEEL GUILTY FOR
  • 00:36:28.010 --> 00:36:29.270
  • CUTTIN' THEM OFF WHEN THEY
  • 00:36:29.270 --> 00:36:30.170

  • SHARE WITH OUR AUDIENCE ABOUT
  • 00:36:39.280 --> 00:36:41.190
  • THE HEALING OF A HEART.
  • 00:36:41.190 --> 00:36:43.170
  • HEARTS GET BROKEN, BUT GOD CAN
  • 00:36:43.170 --> 00:36:46.160
  • HEAL.
  • 00:36:46.160 --> 00:36:47.050
  • [MUSIC]

  • 00:36:50.220 --> 00:36:52.250
  • WHAT'S GOIN' ON WITH YOU?

  • WHAT'S GOIN' ON?
  • 00:36:59.180 --> 00:37:01.100
  • - ANNIE: HONESTLY, I JUST, I'VE
  • 00:37:01.100 --> 00:37:02.050
  • BEEN THINKING A LOT.
  • 00:37:02.050 --> 00:37:04.140
  • I GRADUATED, LIKE, THREE MONTHS
  • 00:37:04.140 --> 00:37:05.060
  • AGO, AND IT JUST SEEMS LIKE
  • 00:37:05.060 --> 00:37:07.040
  • EVERYONE'S GETTING JOBS,
  • 00:37:07.040 --> 00:37:08.130
  • STRAIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE, AND
  • 00:37:08.130 --> 00:37:09.030
  • EVERYONE JUST THINKS THAT I'M SO
  • 00:37:09.030 --> 00:37:11.040
  • PUT TOGETHER AND THAT I HAVE
  • 00:37:11.040 --> 00:37:13.010
  • EVERYTHING FIGURED OUT, BUT,
  • 00:37:13.010 --> 00:37:13.220
  • REALLY, I FEEL LIKE I'M JUST
  • 00:37:13.220 --> 00:37:14.210
  • FALLING APART.
  • 00:37:14.210 --> 00:37:16.120
  • - TRENT: LISTEN, I UNDERSTAND
  • 00:37:16.120 --> 00:37:17.220
  • WHAT YOU'RE GOIN' THROUGH.
  • 00:37:17.220 --> 00:37:18.270
  • I'VE BEEN THERE, BUT I NEED YOU
  • 00:37:18.270 --> 00:37:20.270
  • TO UNDERSTAND THIS: SOMETIMES IT
  • 00:37:20.270 --> 00:37:22.080
  • TAKES CERTAIN THINGS FALLIN'
  • 00:37:22.080 --> 00:37:25.040
  • APART FOR BETTER THINGS TO FALL
  • 00:37:25.040 --> 00:37:26.240
  • INTO PLACE.
  • 00:37:26.240 --> 00:37:27.200
  • SOMETIMES IT TAKES LOSIN' WHAT
  • 00:37:27.200 --> 00:37:29.150
  • YOU'RE SETTLIN' FOR TO REMIND
  • 00:37:30.020 --> 00:37:33.020
  • YOU OF WHAT YOU TRULY DESERVE.
  • 00:37:33.020 --> 00:37:35.040
  • SOMETIMES IT TAKES THE MOST
  • 00:37:35.040 --> 00:37:35.260
  • UNCOMFORTABLE PATHS TO LEAD YOUR
  • 00:37:36.000 --> 00:37:39.000
  • LIFE TO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:37:39.000 --> 00:37:39.260
  • PLACE.
  • 00:37:40.010 --> 00:37:43.010
  • I KNOW IT'S HARD, BUT YOU'LL
  • 00:37:43.010 --> 00:37:43.210
  • NEVER SEE THE PURPOSE OF THE
  • 00:37:43.210 --> 00:37:44.110
  • STORM UNTIL YOU SEE THE GROWTH
  • 00:37:44.110 --> 00:37:45.240
  • IT PRODUCED.
  • 00:37:45.240 --> 00:37:47.140
  • YOU'LL NEVER SEE THE PURPOSE OF
  • 00:37:47.140 --> 00:37:48.270
  • SOMEONE LEAVING YOUR LIFE UNTIL
  • 00:37:48.270 --> 00:37:51.140
  • YOU SEE WHAT'S BEST FOR YOUR
  • 00:37:51.140 --> 00:37:52.170
  • LIFE.
  • 00:37:52.170 --> 00:37:53.000
  • YOU'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY
  • 00:37:53.000 --> 00:37:54.070
  • YOU'RE GOIN' THROUGH WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:37:54.070 --> 00:37:55.150
  • GOIN' THROUGH UNTIL YOU SEE THE
  • 00:37:55.150 --> 00:37:58.000
  • STRENGTH, THE POWER, THE GROWTH
  • 00:37:58.000 --> 00:37:59.120
  • THAT IT BUILT INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:37:59.120 --> 00:38:01.260
  • I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THIS
  • 00:38:01.260 --> 00:38:03.250
  • AND BELIEVE THIS, ANNIE.
  • 00:38:03.250 --> 00:38:05.100
  • YOUR CURRENT SITUATION IS NOT
  • 00:38:05.100 --> 00:38:06.110
  • YOUR FINAL DESTINATION.
  • 00:38:06.110 --> 00:38:08.080
  • THIS STORM WILL EVENTUALLY RUN
  • 00:38:08.080 --> 00:38:09.280
  • OUT OF RAIN.
  • 00:38:10.200 --> 00:38:13.200
  • THIS STRUGGLE THAT'S SEEMING
  • 00:38:13.200 --> 00:38:14.280
  • LIKE IT'S LASTED FOREVER WILL
  • 00:38:15.130 --> 00:38:18.130
  • EVENTUALLY RUN OUT OF PAIN.
  • 00:38:18.130 --> 00:38:19.070
  • THIS HURT YOU WILL TURN INTO THE
  • 00:38:19.240 --> 00:38:22.240
  • GREATEST YOU.
  • 00:38:22.240 --> 00:38:24.110
  • THIS BROKEN YOU WILL TURN INTO
  • 00:38:24.110 --> 00:38:25.020
  • THE BEST YOU.
  • 00:38:25.020 --> 00:38:27.020
  • LET THESE HARD TIMES, THE
  • 00:38:27.040 --> 00:38:30.040
  • HARDEST TIMES IN YOUR LIFE, TURN
  • 00:38:30.040 --> 00:38:30.260
  • INTO YOUR BEST LIFE.
  • 00:38:30.260 --> 00:38:32.110
  • LET THESE BAD DAYS CREATE YOUR
  • 00:38:32.110 --> 00:38:34.070
  • BEST DAYS.
  • 00:38:34.070 --> 00:38:36.100
  • LIKE THAT PROVERB SAYS, "JUST
  • 00:38:36.100 --> 00:38:38.030
  • WHEN A CATERPILLAR THOUGHT THE
  • 00:38:38.040 --> 00:38:41.040
  • WORLD WAS OVER, IT BECAME A
  • 00:38:41.040 --> 00:38:41.240
  • BUTTERFLY."
  • 00:38:42.190 --> 00:38:45.190
  • SO UNDERSTAND, JUST BECAUSE
  • 00:38:45.190 --> 00:38:46.090
  • SOMETHIN' IS OVER DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:38:46.090 --> 00:38:48.250
  • YOUR LIFE IS OVER.
  • 00:38:48.250 --> 00:38:50.290
  • THIS CHAPTER IS NOT YOUR STORY.
  • 00:38:50.290 --> 00:38:52.090
  • THIS MOMENT IS NOT YOUR
  • 00:38:52.090 --> 00:38:52.270
  • IDENTITY.
  • 00:38:52.270 --> 00:38:55.090
  • THIS PAIN IS NOT YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:38:55.190 --> 00:38:58.190
  • YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THE TABLES

  • SPEAKING DEALS WITH THE ISSUE OF

  • FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:39:46.080 --> 00:39:48.040
  • WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO FORGIVE?
  • 00:39:48.040 --> 00:39:50.280
  • WE UNDERSTAND THE CHRISTIAN
  • 00:39:50.280 --> 00:39:52.120
  • THEOLOGY BEHIND IT, BUT PUT IT
  • 00:39:52.140 --> 00:39:55.140
  • IN PRACTICAL TERMS.
  • 00:39:55.140 --> 00:39:57.170
  • - TRENT: SO FORGIVENESS IS
  • 00:39:57.170 --> 00:39:59.260
  • IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT'S KIND OF

  • LIKE-- I ALWAYS LIKE TO TRY TO
  • 00:40:01.030 --> 00:40:03.090

  • MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:40:05.080 --> 00:40:05.190
  • ANYBODY EVER HIKED A MOUNTAIN
  • 00:40:05.190 --> 00:40:06.100
  • BEFORE?
  • 00:40:06.100 --> 00:40:06.200
  • ANYBODY?
  • 00:40:06.200 --> 00:40:07.070
  • OKAY.
  • 00:40:07.070 --> 00:40:07.220
  • WELL, HIKIN' A MOUNTAIN IS HARD.

  • - TRENT: EXACTLY.
  • 00:40:15.090 --> 00:40:16.290
  • OR EVEN WALKIN' UP SOME STAIRS,
  • 00:40:16.290 --> 00:40:17.230
  • WHATEVER IT MAY BE, AND IF YOU
  • 00:40:17.230 --> 00:40:20.100
  • EVER HIKED A MOUNTAIN WITH WHAT
  • 00:40:20.100 --> 00:40:21.150
  • THEY CALL A "RUCK"-- RIGHT?
  • 00:40:21.150 --> 00:40:23.190

  • 00:40:23.190 --> 00:40:24.230
  • VERY, VERY HARD TO HIKE THAT
  • 00:40:24.230 --> 00:40:25.240
  • MOUNTAIN, AND I FEEL LIKE LIFE,
  • 00:40:25.240 --> 00:40:27.040
  • RIGHT, IS A MOUNTAIN, AND THE
  • 00:40:27.040 --> 00:40:28.220
  • LESS YOU FORGIVE, IT'S JUST
  • 00:40:28.220 --> 00:40:30.250
  • CARRYIN' ALL THIS EMOTIONAL
  • 00:40:31.060 --> 00:40:34.060
  • WEIGHT THAT YOU'RE WALKIN'
  • 00:40:34.060 --> 00:40:34.260
  • AROUND, TRYIN' TO HIKE THIS
  • 00:40:34.260 --> 00:40:35.160
  • MOUNTAIN OF LIFE.
  • 00:40:35.160 --> 00:40:36.090
  • AND SO WITHOUT FORGIVENESS, YOU
  • 00:40:36.090 --> 00:40:38.280
  • CAN MOVE ON FROM THE PERSON, YOU
  • 00:40:38.280 --> 00:40:41.090
  • CAN MOVE ON FROM THE SITUATION,
  • 00:40:41.090 --> 00:40:43.130
  • BUT YOU'LL NEVER MOVE ON FROM
  • 00:40:43.130 --> 00:40:44.240
  • THE PAIN.
  • 00:40:44.240 --> 00:40:47.180
  • YOU WILL NEVER MOVE ON FROM IT.
  • 00:40:47.180 --> 00:40:48.150
  • THAT'S WHY WE'LL SEE PEOPLE--
  • 00:40:48.150 --> 00:40:50.250
  • I'LL JUST PUT IT BACK ON ME.
  • 00:40:50.250 --> 00:40:52.100
  • I'VE HAD PEOPLE HURT ME IN
  • 00:40:52.100 --> 00:40:53.220
  • BUSINESS, AND I HAD A PROMOTER
  • 00:40:53.220 --> 00:40:55.040
  • TAKE MONEY FROM ME AND DIDN'T
  • 00:40:55.040 --> 00:40:57.190
  • PAY ME, AND SO WHAT HAPPENED WAS
  • 00:40:57.190 --> 00:40:58.120
  • I MADE OTHER PEOPLE PAY FOR THE
  • 00:40:58.120 --> 00:41:00.190
  • MISTAKE THAT HE MADE.
  • 00:41:00.190 --> 00:41:02.040
  • SO I DIDN'T WANNA TRUST NOBODY.
  • 00:41:02.040 --> 00:41:04.100
  • I DIDN'T WANNA DO BUSINESS WITH
  • 00:41:04.100 --> 00:41:05.140
  • NOBODY.
  • 00:41:05.140 --> 00:41:06.030
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO TRUST ANYBODY
  • 00:41:06.030 --> 00:41:07.110
  • BECAUSE OF THAT PERSON, AND I
  • 00:41:07.110 --> 00:41:09.170
  • REALIZED THAT I WAS LIVIN' MY
  • 00:41:09.170 --> 00:41:11.110
  • LIFE-- HE ALREADY HURT ME IN MY
  • 00:41:11.110 --> 00:41:12.050
  • PAST.
  • 00:41:12.050 --> 00:41:12.290
  • I'M GIVIN' THIS DUDE THE
  • 00:41:12.290 --> 00:41:15.080
  • PERMISSION TO HURT MY FUTURE.
  • 00:41:15.080 --> 00:41:16.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:41:20.190 --> 00:41:23.190
  • SO THAT'S WHY FORGIVENESS IS
  • 00:41:23.190 --> 00:41:24.110
  • IMPORTANT 'CAUSE SOME OF Y'ALL
  • 00:41:24.110 --> 00:41:25.050
  • MIGHT BE LIKE, "TRENT, YOU DON'T
  • 00:41:25.050 --> 00:41:26.020

  • SO FORGIVE AND MOVE ON.
  • 00:41:39.190 --> 00:41:40.230
  • OF COURSE, GOD FORGIVES YOU, SO
  • 00:41:40.230 --> 00:41:41.250
  • EVERYBODY DESERVES FORGIVENESS.

  • YOU MADE MISTAKES.
  • 00:41:42.170 --> 00:41:44.020
  • YOU'RE GONNA NEED FORGIVENESS
  • 00:41:44.020 --> 00:41:45.110
  • FROM OTHER PEOPLE.

  • WE UNDERSTAND THAT.
  • 00:41:46.080 --> 00:41:47.160
  • BUT IF YOU DON'T FORGIVE THAT

  • RIGHT?
  • 00:42:16.180 --> 00:42:17.260
  • WE TEND TO POINT THE FINGER AND

  • 00:42:26.100 --> 00:42:27.190
  • A RELATIONSHIP IS A TWO-WAY
  • 00:42:27.190 --> 00:42:28.090
  • STREET, AND THE MORE IT BECOMES
  • 00:42:28.090 --> 00:42:29.180
  • A ONE-WAY STREET, IT WILL
  • 00:42:29.180 --> 00:42:30.120

  • SHE DOES THINGS-- NO
  • 00:42:57.120 --> 00:42:58.190
  • RELATIONSHIP IS PERFECT, BUT I

  • BEST ME" THAT THEY CAN BE?
  • 00:44:04.130 --> 00:44:07.130
  • - TRENT: RIGHT, THAT'S A TOUGH
  • 00:44:07.130 --> 00:44:08.050
  • QUESTION.
  • 00:44:08.050 --> 00:44:08.160
  • READ THE BOOK,
  • 00:44:08.160 --> 00:44:08.290
  • "THE GREATEST YOU."
  • 00:44:08.290 --> 00:44:09.250
  • NO.
  • 00:44:09.250 --> 00:44:10.120
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:44:10.120 --> 00:44:11.200
  • NO, SERIOUSLY, I THINK STARTIN'
  • 00:44:11.200 --> 00:44:12.190
  • OFF WITH BECOMIN' THE BEST
  • 00:44:12.190 --> 00:44:14.090
  • YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT
  • 00:44:17.050 --> 00:44:17.280
  • MEANS AND WHAT THAT IS FOR YOU.
  • 00:44:17.280 --> 00:44:18.200
  • I MEAN, WHAT'S YOUR END GOAL OF
  • 00:44:18.200 --> 00:44:19.120
  • LIFE?
  • 00:44:19.120 --> 00:44:21.070
  • YOU KNOW, FOR ME, AS A BELIEVER,
  • 00:44:21.070 --> 00:44:21.290
  • MY END GOAL IS NOT TO BE THE
  • 00:44:21.290 --> 00:44:23.220
  • MOST SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:44:23.220 --> 00:44:25.110
  • I MEAN, WE TALKED ABOUT HOW MANY
  • 00:44:25.110 --> 00:44:26.180
  • FOLLOWERS I HAVE ON SOCIAL
  • 00:44:26.180 --> 00:44:28.280
  • I APPRECIATE IT BECAUSE IT SHOWS
  • 00:44:30.200 --> 00:44:31.120
  • THE GROWTH AND THE LIVES THAT
  • 00:44:31.120 --> 00:44:32.030
  • I'M IMPACTIN' THROUGH GOD'S
  • 00:44:32.030 --> 00:44:32.230
  • HELP, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY,
  • 00:44:32.230 --> 00:44:33.150
  • THAT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING,
  • 00:44:33.150 --> 00:44:34.190
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:44:34.190 --> 00:44:36.290
  • I CAN HAVE MAN'S REWARDS AND
  • 00:44:36.290 --> 00:44:38.070
  • MAN'S PRAISE AND MAN'S SUCCESS
  • 00:44:38.070 --> 00:44:39.080
  • HERE, BUT IF I'M NOT SUCCESSFUL
  • 00:44:39.160 --> 00:44:42.160
  • IN GOD'S EYES, WHAT DOES THOSE
  • 00:44:42.160 --> 00:44:43.070
  • THINGS MATTER?
  • 00:44:43.200 --> 00:44:46.200
  • AND SO ONE QUESTION THAT HAS
  • 00:44:46.200 --> 00:44:47.170
  • BEEN REALLY ON MY HEART, YOU
  • 00:44:47.170 --> 00:44:50.130
  • KNOW, THE LAST YEAR, IS WHAT'S
  • 00:44:50.130 --> 00:44:51.070
  • GONNA REALLY MATTER?
  • 00:44:51.070 --> 00:44:51.230
  • AT THE END OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT'S
  • 00:44:51.230 --> 00:44:54.220
  • GONNA REALLY MATTER?
  • 00:44:55.060 --> 00:44:58.060
  • IS IT THE PEOPLE THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:44:58.060 --> 00:44:59.030
  • TRYIN' TO IMPRESS?
  • 00:44:59.030 --> 00:45:00.160
  • IS IT THE STATUS THAT-- YOUR JOB
  • 00:45:00.160 --> 00:45:01.260
  • POSITION, YOUR BANK-- WHAT'S
  • 00:45:01.260 --> 00:45:03.200
  • GONNA REALLY MATTER?
  • 00:45:03.200 --> 00:45:04.260
  • AND WE ALWAYS-- THE LAST TIME I
  • 00:45:04.260 --> 00:45:06.080
  • CHECKED, I HAVEN'T SEEN A U-HAUL
  • 00:45:06.080 --> 00:45:07.030
  • ATTACHED TO A HEARSE, RIGHT?
  • 00:45:07.030 --> 00:45:10.010
  • SO WE'RE TAKIN' NONE OF THOSE
  • 00:45:10.010 --> 00:45:10.220
  • THINGS WITH US.
  • 00:45:10.220 --> 00:45:11.230
  • SO, FOR ME, BEING "THE GREATEST
  • 00:45:11.230 --> 00:45:13.290
  • ME" IS ME UNDERSTANDING WHO GOD
  • 00:45:13.290 --> 00:45:16.070
  • HAS CALLED ME TO BE, AND IT'S A
  • 00:45:16.070 --> 00:45:18.200
  • PROCESS BECAUSE I HAVEN'T EVEN--
  • 00:45:18.270 --> 00:45:21.270
  • OF COURSE, I HAVE A IDEA, BUT
  • 00:45:21.270 --> 00:45:23.150
  • I'M CONTINUALLY NOT TRYING TO
  • 00:45:23.150 --> 00:45:24.160
  • BECOME ANYTHING.
  • 00:45:24.160 --> 00:45:25.200
  • I'M TRYING TO "UN-BECOME"
  • 00:45:25.200 --> 00:45:27.120
  • BECAUSE THERE'S BEEN SO MANY
  • 00:45:27.120 --> 00:45:28.240
  • LAYERS OF FAILURE, SO MANY
  • 00:45:28.240 --> 00:45:30.230
  • LAYERS OF DISAPPOINTMENT IN MY
  • 00:45:30.230 --> 00:45:32.160
  • LIFE, SO MANY LAYERS OF
  • 00:45:32.160 --> 00:45:33.170
  • INFLUENCE BY OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:45:33.170 --> 00:45:35.000
  • LIKE, WE'VE BEEN INFLUENCED
  • 00:45:35.000 --> 00:45:36.060
  • SINCE WE'VE BEEN OUT THE WOMB.
  • 00:45:36.060 --> 00:45:37.170
  • SO MY THING IS GETTING BACK TO
  • 00:45:37.170 --> 00:45:39.000
  • THE CORE OF WHO GOD CREATED
  • 00:45:39.000 --> 00:45:40.250
  • TRENT SHELTON TO BE.
  • 00:45:40.250 --> 00:45:41.180
  • THAT'S THE GREATEST YOU, AND
  • 00:45:41.180 --> 00:45:44.170
  • THAT'S A JOURNEY I FEEL LIKE
  • 00:45:44.170 --> 00:45:45.230
  • WE'LL BE TAKIN' TOWARDS THE END
  • 00:45:45.230 --> 00:45:47.150
  • OF OUR LIFE, BUT THAT'S THE
  • 00:45:47.150 --> 00:45:48.050
  • JOURNEY THAT I'M ON, AND I WANNA
  • 00:45:48.050 --> 00:45:49.180
  • FIND THAT PERSON BECAUSE I KNOW,
  • 00:45:49.180 --> 00:45:50.230
  • WHEN I FIND THAT TRENT SHELTON
  • 00:45:50.230 --> 00:45:52.040
  • AT THE CORE THAT GOD CREATED ME
  • 00:45:52.040 --> 00:45:53.120
  • TO BE, THEN THAT'S WHERE I'LL
  • 00:45:53.120 --> 00:45:55.080
  • FIND WHAT I CONSIDER SUCCESS,
  • 00:45:55.080 --> 00:45:56.200
  • WHICH IS TRUE PEACE.
  • 00:45:59.000 --> 00:46:02.020
  • - CLIFTON: AMEN, AMEN.
  • 00:46:02.020 --> 00:46:03.170
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:46:03.170 --> 00:46:05.280
  • I'VE GOTTA SHARE WITH YOU THAT
  • 00:46:05.280 --> 00:46:06.240
  • I'VE BEEN DOING A LOT OF
  • 00:46:06.240 --> 00:46:08.260
  • TELEVISION ACTING, AND IT CAN
  • 00:46:08.260 --> 00:46:11.150
  • JUST GOBBLE YOU UP, AND YOU GET
  • 00:46:12.080 --> 00:46:15.080
  • SWEPT UP IN IT, AND IT'S LIKE
  • 00:46:15.080 --> 00:46:16.220
  • RIDING A TIDE.
  • 00:46:16.220 --> 00:46:19.100
  • THE WAVES COME AND THEY GO, AND
  • 00:46:19.100 --> 00:46:21.150
  • YOU'RE IN THERE FIGHTING FOR
  • 00:46:21.150 --> 00:46:22.280
  • EVERY LITTLE PART, AND LITTLE BY
  • 00:46:22.280 --> 00:46:24.200
  • LITTLE, YOU MAY LOSE SIGHT OF
  • 00:46:28.090 --> 00:46:31.090
  • WHAT GOD REALLY CALLED YOU TO
  • 00:46:31.090 --> 00:46:32.000
  • - TRENT: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:46:34.110 --> 00:46:35.240
  • - CLIFTON: THAT IS A WITNESS
  • 00:46:35.240 --> 00:46:37.160
  • FOR HIM, AND YOU DON'T EVER
  • 00:46:37.160 --> 00:46:38.070
  • WANNA LOSE THAT BECAUSE
  • 00:46:38.070 --> 00:46:39.090
  • HE BLESSES ME IN THE
  • 00:46:39.090 --> 00:46:40.190
  • BUSINESS SO THAT I CAN BE A
  • 00:46:41.230 --> 00:46:44.230
  • TESTIMONY TO THE TRANSFORMING
  • 00:46:44.230 --> 00:46:45.140
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:46:50.100 --> 00:46:52.000
  • - CLIFTON: SO IF I SUDDENLY
  • 00:46:52.000 --> 00:46:53.060
  • NEGLECT MY JOB IN DISCUSSING
  • 00:46:53.080 --> 00:46:56.080
  • THE TRANSFORMATION,
  • 00:46:56.080 --> 00:46:58.140
  • THEN THE OTHER SUCCESS IS
  • 00:46:58.140 --> 00:47:00.230
  • NOT AS TASTY.
  • 00:47:00.230 --> 00:47:03.140
  • IT IS ONLY DELICIOUS IF I
  • 00:47:03.150 --> 00:47:06.150
  • FULFILL MY PURPOSE IN GOD AND
  • 00:47:06.150 --> 00:47:08.250
  • TELL SOMEBODY ABOUT THE GOD WHO
  • 00:47:08.250 --> 00:47:11.020
  • TURNED MY LIFE AROUND.
  • 00:47:11.020 --> 00:47:12.080
  • - TRENT: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:47:12.080 --> 00:47:13.000
  • YES, SIR.
  • 00:47:13.000 --> 00:47:13.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:47:13.180 --> 00:47:14.110
  • I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:47:14.110 --> 00:47:15.260
  • - CLIFTON: YOU TALK ABOUT IT IN
  • 00:47:15.260 --> 00:47:18.100
  • A VIDEO CALLED "MAKE A CHANGE."
  • 00:47:18.100 --> 00:47:20.170
  • I WANNA SHARE THAT WITH OUR
  • 00:47:20.170 --> 00:47:22.090
  • - TRENT: CHANGE ISN'T GONNA
  • 00:47:27.150 --> 00:47:28.110
  • HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE BY
  • 00:47:28.110 --> 00:47:30.040
  • COMPLAININ' ABOUT YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:47:30.180 --> 00:47:33.180
  • CHANGE ISN'T GONNA HAPPEN BY YOU
  • 00:47:33.180 --> 00:47:34.200
  • JUST TALKIN' ABOUT YOUR
  • 00:47:34.200 --> 00:47:36.150
  • PROBLEMS.
  • 00:47:36.150 --> 00:47:38.270

  • YOUR PROBLEMS ARE REAL.
  • 00:47:41.290 --> 00:47:43.120
  • YOUR SETBACKS ARE REAL, BUT I
  • 00:47:43.120 --> 00:47:45.190
  • JUST WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT
  • 00:47:45.190 --> 00:47:46.110
  • TALKIN' ABOUT IT IS GONNA DO
  • 00:47:46.110 --> 00:47:48.170
  • NOTHIN' ABOUT IT.
  • 00:47:48.170 --> 00:47:50.290
  • CHANGE ISN'T GONNA HAPPEN IN
  • 00:47:50.290 --> 00:47:51.250
  • YOUR LIFE UNTIL YOU START MAKIN'
  • 00:47:53.030 --> 00:47:56.030
  • CHANGES TO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:47:56.030 --> 00:47:58.140
  • I WANT YOU TO WRITE THIS DOWN
  • 00:47:58.140 --> 00:47:59.050
  • AND REMEMBER.
  • 00:47:59.050 --> 00:47:59.290
  • I'M GONNA SAY IT AGAIN.
  • 00:47:59.290 --> 00:48:01.160
  • CHANGE ISN'T GONNA HAPPEN IN
  • 00:48:01.160 --> 00:48:03.000
  • YOUR LIFE UNTIL YOU START MAKIN'
  • 00:48:03.000 --> 00:48:05.110
  • CHANGES TO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:48:05.260 --> 00:48:08.260
  • LIKE, YOU GOTTA STOP COMPLAININ'
  • 00:48:08.260 --> 00:48:09.180
  • ABOUT THE THINGS YOU AREN'T

  • WILLIN' TO CHANGE.
  • 00:48:12.160 --> 00:48:14.270
  • BUT IF YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO

  • CHANGE AT IT BE DIFFERENT, YOU
  • 00:48:15.170 --> 00:48:16.250
  • GOTTA MAKE A DECISION.
  • 00:48:16.250 --> 00:48:18.150
  • YOU GOTTA SAY, "ENOUGH IS
  • 00:48:18.150 --> 00:48:19.200
  • ENOUGH."
  • 00:48:19.200 --> 00:48:20.090
  • YOU GOTTA SAY, "NO MATTER HOW
  • 00:48:20.090 --> 00:48:21.140
  • HARD IT MAY BE, I HAVE TO
  • 00:48:21.140 --> 00:48:22.200
  • GET THIS DONE BECAUSE, LISTEN,
  • 00:48:22.200 --> 00:48:24.000
  • I'D RATHER THE PATH BE HARD
  • 00:48:24.000 --> 00:48:25.200
  • THAN STAYIN' IN THE SAME PLACE
  • 00:48:25.200 --> 00:48:27.120
  • THAT'S FULL OF PAIN."
  • 00:48:27.120 --> 00:48:29.240
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S LIKE COMPLAININ'
  • 00:48:29.240 --> 00:48:30.160
  • ABOUT A FIRE THAT YOU'RE GETTIN'
  • 00:48:30.160 --> 00:48:31.280
  • BURNED BY A FIRE, BUT YOU'RE
  • 00:48:31.280 --> 00:48:33.160
  • CHOOSIN' TO STAY IN THE FIRE.
  • 00:48:33.160 --> 00:48:34.150
  • AND YOU WANNA HAVE A LOT OF
  • 00:48:34.150 --> 00:48:36.280
  • SUPPORT.
  • 00:48:36.280 --> 00:48:37.140
  • CHANGE DOESN'T MEAN EVERYBODY'S
  • 00:48:37.140 --> 00:48:39.280
  • GONNA SUPPORT YOUR CHANGE,
  • 00:48:39.280 --> 00:48:41.040
  • EVERYBODY'S GONNA APPLAUD YOUR
  • 00:48:41.040 --> 00:48:42.030
  • CHANGE, BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOUR
  • 00:48:42.030 --> 00:48:44.270
  • CHANGE REMINDS PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:48:44.270 --> 00:48:45.260
  • THEY'RE NOT CHANGIN'.
  • 00:48:45.260 --> 00:48:46.130
  • SOMETIMES YOUR CHANGE REMINDS
  • 00:48:46.130 --> 00:48:47.240
  • PEOPLE THAT THEY CAN NO LONGER
  • 00:48:47.240 --> 00:48:49.270
  • USE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:48:49.270 --> 00:48:51.260
  • BUT IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO STOP
  • 00:48:51.260 --> 00:48:53.090
  • STAYIN' IN THE SAME PLACE.
  • 00:48:53.090 --> 00:48:54.010
  • IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO STOP
  • 00:48:54.010 --> 00:48:55.180
  • BLAMIN' EVERYBODY ELSE FOR YOUR
  • 00:48:55.180 --> 00:48:57.050
  • SITUATION, AND ACCEPT YOUR
  • 00:48:57.050 --> 00:48:59.070
  • SITUATION.
  • 00:49:00.070 --> 00:49:03.070
  • AND I KNOW THAT HURTS SOMETIMES
  • 00:49:03.070 --> 00:49:03.290
  • 'CAUSE YOU'RE LIKE, "I DON'T
  • 00:49:03.290 --> 00:49:05.090
  • WANNA ACCEPT THIS," LIKE, "YOU
  • 00:49:05.090 --> 00:49:07.020
  • DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS

  • UNDERSTAND MY ENVIRONMENT," "YOU

  • DON'T UNDERSTAND."
  • 00:49:09.260 --> 00:49:12.020
  • BUT I DO UNDERSTAND THIS:
  • 00:49:12.020 --> 00:49:14.010
  • ACCEPTANCE IS FREEIN'.
  • 00:49:14.010 --> 00:49:15.220
  • BECAUSE, AS LONG AS YOU'RE
  • 00:49:15.220 --> 00:49:16.180
  • LIVIN' IN DENIAL, YOU'RE GON'
  • 00:49:16.180 --> 00:49:18.210
  • STAY IN THAT PAIN.
  • 00:49:18.210 --> 00:49:20.290
  • AS LONG AS YOU'RE LIVIN' IN
  • 00:49:20.290 --> 00:49:22.270
  • DENIAL, THAT PERSON AND THAT
  • 00:49:22.270 --> 00:49:23.170
  • SITUATION IS GONNA HAVE POWER
  • 00:49:23.170 --> 00:49:24.100
  • OVER YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:49:24.100 --> 00:49:25.180
  • ACCEPT IT.
  • 00:49:25.180 --> 00:49:28.000
  • AND ALSO ACCEPT THIS: ACCEPT
  • 00:49:28.000 --> 00:49:30.000
  • THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO STAY
  • 00:49:30.000 --> 00:49:32.090
  • THERE.
  • 00:49:32.090 --> 00:49:34.050
  • ACCEPT THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:49:34.050 --> 00:49:34.260
  • STAY THERE.
  • 00:49:34.260 --> 00:49:36.210
  • ACCEPT THAT YOU CAN MOVE ON FROM
  • 00:49:36.210 --> 00:49:37.210
  • IT, AND IT IS GONNA BE A
  • 00:49:37.210 --> 00:49:38.200
  • PROCESS.
  • 00:49:38.200 --> 00:49:39.070
  • THE PROCESS SUCKS.
  • 00:49:39.070 --> 00:49:41.020
  • THE PROCESS IS HARD.
  • 00:49:41.020 --> 00:49:43.090
  • THE PROCESS ISN'T BEAUTIFUL, BUT
  • 00:49:43.090 --> 00:49:45.240
  • I PROMISE YOU THIS: IT WILL TAKE
  • 00:49:45.240 --> 00:49:47.220
  • YOU TO A BEAUTIFUL PLACE.
  • 00:49:47.220 --> 00:49:49.160
  • WHAT MATTERS, THAT YOU SAY,
  • 00:49:49.160 --> 00:49:51.190
  • "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:49:51.190 --> 00:49:52.220
  • RIGHT NOW IS GON' BE THE MOMENT
  • 00:49:53.090 --> 00:49:56.090
  • THAT MY LIFE CHANGES FOREVER.
  • 00:49:56.090 --> 00:49:58.130
  • IT'S GON' BE THE MOMENT THAT I

  • STOP ACCEPTING LESS.
  • 00:50:00.210 --> 00:50:02.100
  • IT'S GON' BE THE MOMENT THAT I
  • 00:50:02.100 --> 00:50:04.220
  • STOP TALKIN' ABOUT CHANGE, AND I
  • 00:50:04.220 --> 00:50:06.030
  • ACTUALLY MAKE CHANGE.
  • 00:50:06.030 --> 00:50:07.150
  • WELL, LIKE I SAID IN EVERY
  • 00:50:07.150 --> 00:50:09.260
  • SINGLE VIDEO, YOU KNOW WHO IT

  • NEVER LET THIS WORLD TAKE YOUR
  • 00:50:20.120 --> 00:50:21.200
  • SMILE.
  • 00:50:21.200 --> 00:50:22.130
  • - CLIFTON: ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:50:22.130 --> 00:50:23.000
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:50:24.010 --> 00:50:27.010
  • THIS WORLD WILL TAKE YOUR SMILE.
  • 00:50:27.010 --> 00:50:28.110
  • THEY WILL ROB YOU OF YOUR JOY.
  • 00:50:28.110 --> 00:50:31.090
  • THAT'S WHY THE JOY OF THE LORD
  • 00:50:31.090 --> 00:50:32.240
  • IS MY STRENGTH.
  • 00:50:32.240 --> 00:50:34.140
  • - TRENT: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:50:34.140 --> 00:50:35.280
  • - CLIFTON: MM-HMM, WELL, NOW,
  • 00:50:35.280 --> 00:50:38.120
  • YOU KNOW, THERE ARE A LOT OF
  • 00:50:38.120 --> 00:50:40.040
  • FOLK WHO ARE OLDER, LIKE ME, AND
  • 00:50:40.040 --> 00:50:41.050
  • THEY'RE AFRAID OF CHANGE.
  • 00:50:41.050 --> 00:50:43.190
  • THEY'RE USED TO LIFE BEING A
  • 00:50:43.190 --> 00:50:45.200
  • CERTAIN WAY, AND THIS IS THE
  • 00:50:45.200 --> 00:50:47.140
  • PROBLEM THAT THEY KNOW, SO THEY
  • 00:50:47.140 --> 00:50:49.230
  • HOLD ONTO IT.
  • 00:50:49.230 --> 00:50:51.000
  • WHEN SOMEONE IS AFRAID TO MAKE A
  • 00:50:51.060 --> 00:50:54.060
  • CHANGE, WHAT STEPS CAN THEY TAKE
  • 00:50:54.060 --> 00:50:55.250
  • TO IMPLEMENT THAT CHANGE?
  • 00:50:55.250 --> 00:50:58.100
  • - TRENT: WELL, IT'S LIKE I SAID
  • 00:50:58.100 --> 00:51:00.100
  • IN THE VIDEO, I MEAN, IT'S LIKE
  • 00:51:00.160 --> 00:51:03.160
  • THIS: IF YOU DON'T WANNA MAKE A
  • 00:51:03.160 --> 00:51:04.180
  • CHANGE, FINE, BUT DON'T COMPLAIN
  • 00:51:04.180 --> 00:51:06.060
  • DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT THE
  • 00:51:08.260 --> 00:51:09.140
  • SITUATION YOU'RE CHOOSING TO
  • 00:51:09.140 --> 00:51:10.120
  • KEEP YOURSELF IN.
  • 00:51:10.120 --> 00:51:12.210
  • SO IN STEPS OF MAKIN' CHANGE,
  • 00:51:12.210 --> 00:51:14.140
  • THE FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO
  • 00:51:14.140 --> 00:51:15.210
  • IS YOU HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT--
  • 00:51:15.210 --> 00:51:17.160
  • YOU HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU
  • 00:51:19.260 --> 00:51:20.180
  • HAVE A PROBLEM, THAT YOU HAVE A
  • 00:51:20.180 --> 00:51:21.250
  • SITUATION, AND "I NEED HELP" IS
  • 00:51:21.250 --> 00:51:23.060
  • THE GREATEST WORDS YOU EVER
  • 00:51:23.060 --> 00:51:25.100
  • COULD SAY, PEOPLE.
  • 00:51:25.100 --> 00:51:25.260
  • LIKE, IT DOESN'T MAKE YOU WEAK
  • 00:51:25.260 --> 00:51:26.190
  • TO SAY, "I NEED HELP."
  • 00:51:26.190 --> 00:51:28.160
  • AND WHEN I STARTED
  • 00:51:28.160 --> 00:51:29.240
  • ASKIN' FOR HELP IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:51:29.240 --> 00:51:30.140
  • I RECEIVED HELP-- PERIOD.
  • 00:51:30.140 --> 00:51:31.170
  • AND THEN I SAID, "OKAY, WELL,
  • 00:51:31.170 --> 00:51:32.220
  • WHAT'S SOMETHING THAT I CAN
  • 00:51:32.220 --> 00:51:34.200
  • CONTROL," WHICH WE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:51:34.200 --> 00:51:35.240
  • EARLIER, "THAT I ACTUALLY CAN
  • 00:51:35.240 --> 00:51:36.150
  • DO?"
  • 00:51:36.150 --> 00:51:37.210
  • SOMETIMES WE THINK CHANGE IS
  • 00:51:37.210 --> 00:51:39.000
  • THIS, LIKE, MEGA-THING THAT WE
  • 00:51:39.000 --> 00:51:41.090
  • HAVE TO MAKE, BUT SOMETIMES IT'S
  • 00:51:41.090 --> 00:51:42.240
  • A CHANGE OF A HABIT, SOMETIMES A
  • 00:51:42.240 --> 00:51:43.240
  • CHANGE OF HOW YOU START YOUR
  • 00:51:43.240 --> 00:51:44.230
  • DAY.
  • 00:51:44.230 --> 00:51:45.090
  • SOME OF US, WE DON'T START OUR
  • 00:51:45.090 --> 00:51:46.210
  • DAY WITH PRAYER.
  • 00:51:46.210 --> 00:51:47.150
  • WE START OUR DAY ON FACEBOOK,
  • 00:51:47.150 --> 00:51:48.070
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:51:48.090 --> 00:51:51.090
  • - CLIFTON: OH, YEAH, OH, YEAH.
  • 00:51:51.090 --> 00:51:52.080
  • - TRENT: WE PICK UP OUR PHONE
  • 00:51:52.080 --> 00:51:54.220
  • AND GIVE OUR THUMB EXERCISE.
  • 00:51:54.220 --> 00:51:55.180
  • AND SO, FOR ME, IT'S OKAY,
  • 00:51:55.180 --> 00:51:56.170
  • SAYIN', "WHAT CAN I DO RIGHT NOW
  • 00:51:56.170 --> 00:51:58.050
  • THAT'S A STEP?"
  • 00:51:58.050 --> 00:51:59.140
  • BECAUSE, A LOT OF TIMES, WE
  • 00:51:59.140 --> 00:52:01.040
  • NEVER TAKE THE JOURNEY BECAUSE
  • 00:52:01.040 --> 00:52:03.020
  • WE DON'T UNDERSTAND THE JOURNEY.
  • 00:52:03.020 --> 00:52:05.030
  • WE DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW TO GET
  • 00:52:05.030 --> 00:52:05.240
  • THERE.
  • 00:52:05.240 --> 00:52:07.180
  • TAKE A STEP, AND I PROMISE YOU,
  • 00:52:07.180 --> 00:52:08.280
  • GOD WILL REVEAL THE "HOW TO,"
  • 00:52:08.280 --> 00:52:10.100
  • ONCE YOU DO IT.
  • 00:52:10.100 --> 00:52:11.170
  • SOME OF US, WE NEVER MOVE ON
  • 00:52:11.170 --> 00:52:13.150
  • BECAUSE WE'RE LIKE, "I DON'T
  • 00:52:13.150 --> 00:52:15.040
  • KNOW WHAT I'M MOVIN' ON TO."
  • 00:52:15.040 --> 00:52:16.160
  • KNOW WHAT YOU'RE MOVIN' ON FROM
  • 00:52:16.160 --> 00:52:19.140
  • BECAUSE, ONCE YOU TAKE THAT STEP
  • 00:52:19.140 --> 00:52:21.020
  • AND TRUST GOD AND HAVE FAITH IN
  • 00:52:21.020 --> 00:52:22.180
  • GOD, HE WILL REVEAL THAT TO YOU.
  • 00:52:22.180 --> 00:52:24.290
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S KIND OF LIKE--
  • 00:52:24.290 --> 00:52:25.230
  • IF YOU DON'T MIND,
  • 00:52:25.230 --> 00:52:26.180
  • CAN I GO INTO THIS REAL QUICK?
  • 00:52:26.180 --> 00:52:27.090
  • - CLIFTON: YEAH, YOU CAN.
  • 00:52:27.090 --> 00:52:28.050
  • - TRENT: OKAY, COOL.
  • 00:52:28.050 --> 00:52:28.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:52:28.220 --> 00:52:29.240
  • SO, IN MY LIFE, I WOULD PRAY
  • 00:52:31.210 --> 00:52:34.210
  • THESE VICTORIOUS PRAYERS.
  • 00:52:35.060 --> 00:52:38.060
  • I WOULD SAY, "GOD--" YOU KNOW,
  • 00:52:38.060 --> 00:52:41.050
  • X-Y-Z, YOU KNOW, "IF YOU TAKE ME
  • 00:52:41.050 --> 00:52:42.110
  • OUT THIS SITUATION, I'M GONNA
  • 00:52:42.110 --> 00:52:43.110
  • HONOR YOU.
  • 00:52:43.110 --> 00:52:44.010
  • I'M GONNA DO ALL THESE THINGS."
  • 00:52:44.010 --> 00:52:45.030
  • BUT THEN, I WOULD GO LIVE A
  • 00:52:45.220 --> 00:52:48.220
  • DEFEATED LIFE, AND IS THAT
  • 00:52:48.220 --> 00:52:49.170
  • REALLY FAITH?
  • 00:52:50.240 --> 00:52:53.240
  • IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE THE POWER
  • 00:52:53.240 --> 00:52:54.280
  • OF GOD, YOUR ACTIONS, RIGHT,
  • 00:52:55.130 --> 00:52:58.130
  • YOUR BELIEFS SHOULD REFLECT
  • 00:52:58.130 --> 00:52:59.220
  • THAT.
  • 00:52:59.220 --> 00:53:00.060
  • A LOT OF US HAVE A POWERFUL
  • 00:53:00.060 --> 00:53:02.020
  • PRAYER LIFE, WHICH WE NEED, BUT
  • 00:53:02.020 --> 00:53:02.280
  • YOU REALLY-- DR. TONY EVANS SAYS
  • 00:53:03.070 --> 00:53:06.070
  • THIS ALL THE TIME: "FAITH IS IN
  • 00:53:06.070 --> 00:53:07.210
  • YOUR FEET."
  • 00:53:07.210 --> 00:53:08.080
  • SO IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE IN THE
  • 00:53:08.080 --> 00:53:10.240
  • PRAYERS THAT YOU'RE PRAYIN',
  • 00:53:10.240 --> 00:53:12.020
  • IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE IN
  • 00:53:12.020 --> 00:53:12.280
  • THE WORD THAT YOU'RE READING,
  • 00:53:12.280 --> 00:53:14.130
  • IT SHOULD BE A REFLECTION
  • 00:53:14.130 --> 00:53:15.140
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:53:15.140 --> 00:53:16.080
  • AND SO, FOR ME, I HAD TO CHANGE
  • 00:53:16.080 --> 00:53:18.080
  • THAT.
  • 00:53:18.080 --> 00:53:19.200
  • Y'ALL CAN CLAP FOR THAT, FOR
  • 00:53:19.200 --> 00:53:20.100
  • SURE, YEAH.
  • 00:53:20.100 --> 00:53:20.230
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:53:20.230 --> 00:53:22.120
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:53:22.270 --> 00:53:25.270
  • SO I WANTED TO DO MY PART AND
  • 00:53:25.270 --> 00:53:28.140
  • SAYIN', "OKAY, GOD, I TRUST YOU,
  • 00:53:28.140 --> 00:53:30.020
  • AND I'M TRUSTIN' YOU SO MUCH,
  • 00:53:30.020 --> 00:53:31.230
  • EVEN THOUGH I DON'T KNOW WHERE
  • 00:53:31.230 --> 00:53:33.130
  • THIS PATH IS LEADING ME, I'M
  • 00:53:33.130 --> 00:53:34.280
  • GONNA TAKE THIS FIRST STEP," AND
  • 00:53:34.280 --> 00:53:36.270
  • WHEN I HONOR GOD BY SHOWING GOD
  • 00:53:36.270 --> 00:53:38.220
  • THAT I TRUST HIM, HE'S REWARDED
  • 00:53:38.220 --> 00:53:40.100
  • MY LIFE IN A MAJOR WAY.
  • 00:53:40.100 --> 00:53:42.270
  • - CLIFTON: HOW DO WE GET INTO A
  • 00:53:42.270 --> 00:53:44.240
  • CHAMPIONSHIP MIND-SET?
  • 00:53:44.240 --> 00:53:47.130
  • NOW, I KNOW YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS
  • 00:53:47.130 --> 00:53:49.240
  • TO THINK CHAMPIONSHIP, SO TELL
  • 00:53:49.240 --> 00:53:51.220
  • US HOW WE CAN HAVE THAT SAME
  • 00:53:51.220 --> 00:53:53.270
  • MIND-SET.
  • 00:53:53.270 --> 00:53:54.220
  • - TRENT: FOR SURE.
  • 00:53:54.220 --> 00:53:57.180
  • SO, WITH ME PLAYIN' SPORTS, YOU
  • 00:53:57.180 --> 00:53:58.100
  • KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF A
  • 00:53:58.100 --> 00:53:59.000
  • CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, RIGHT?
  • 00:53:59.000 --> 00:53:59.190
  • IT'S EITHER YOU WIN OR YOU GO
  • 00:53:59.190 --> 00:54:00.290
  • HOME, AND TO RELATE THIS TO
  • 00:54:00.290 --> 00:54:03.030
  • LIFE, THIS IS JUST FACTS, AND
  • 00:54:03.030 --> 00:54:05.030
  • I'M NOT TRYIN' TO SCARE ANYBODY,
  • 00:54:05.030 --> 00:54:06.230
  • BUT 150.000 PEOPLE DIE EVERY
  • 00:54:06.230 --> 00:54:08.280
  • DAY.
  • 00:54:08.280 --> 00:54:09.200
  • THAT'S 55 MILLION PEOPLE A YEAR,
  • 00:54:11.020 --> 00:54:14.020
  • 55 MILLION PEOPLE A YEAR.
  • 00:54:14.020 --> 00:54:15.190
  • AND SO, FIRST OF ALL, IF YOU'RE
  • 00:54:15.190 --> 00:54:16.170
  • LOOKIN' FOR A BLESSIN',
  • 00:54:16.170 --> 00:54:17.050
  • UNDERSTAND, YOU'RE BLESSED TO
  • 00:54:17.050 --> 00:54:18.110
  • HAVE BREATH, AND YOU'RE BLESSED
  • 00:54:18.110 --> 00:54:19.040
  • TO BE HERE, FOR ONE, RIGHT?
  • 00:54:19.040 --> 00:54:19.240
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:54:21.290 --> 00:54:24.290
  • BUT THE REALITY IS, A LOT OF US
  • 00:54:24.290 --> 00:54:26.120
  • ARE GONNA SPEND OUR WHOLE LIFE
  • 00:54:26.120 --> 00:54:28.130
  • WAITING, NOT IN A POSITIVE WAY,
  • 00:54:28.130 --> 00:54:29.110
  • BUT WAITING ON SOMEONE TO
  • 00:54:29.160 --> 00:54:32.160
  • BELIEVE IN US, WAITIN' ON
  • 00:54:32.160 --> 00:54:33.150
  • SOMEONE TO SUPPORT US, WAITIN'
  • 00:54:33.150 --> 00:54:36.040
  • ON THE RIGHT PERSON, RIGHT?
  • 00:54:36.040 --> 00:54:37.100
  • WAITING, WAITING, WAITING.
  • 00:54:37.100 --> 00:54:38.140
  • YOU'RE GONNA SPEND YOUR WHOLE
  • 00:54:38.140 --> 00:54:39.150
  • ENTIRE LIFE, WAITING.
  • 00:54:39.150 --> 00:54:40.260
  • AND SO, FOR ME, I SAY, "YOU KNOW
  • 00:54:40.260 --> 00:54:42.050
  • WHAT?
  • 00:54:42.050 --> 00:54:43.060
  • I'M NOT GONNA WAIT.
  • 00:54:43.060 --> 00:54:44.020
  • I'M GONNA TRUST WHAT GOD HAS PUT
  • 00:54:44.020 --> 00:54:45.090
  • IN MY HEART, AND I'M GONNA BE A
  • 00:54:45.090 --> 00:54:46.290
  • DOER OF THE WORD," RIGHT?
  • 00:54:46.290 --> 00:54:47.240
  • AND SO I CAME UP WITH THESE FIVE
  • 00:54:47.240 --> 00:54:50.090
  • TRAITS OF A CHAMPIONSHIP
  • 00:54:50.090 --> 00:54:51.150
  • MIND-SET: NUMBER ONE IS
  • 00:54:51.150 --> 00:54:53.110
  • COMMITMENT.
  • 00:54:53.110 --> 00:54:54.180
  • YOU WANNA BE A CHAMPION?
  • 00:54:54.180 --> 00:54:56.110
  • YOU GOTTA HAVE COMMITMENT.
  • 00:54:56.110 --> 00:54:57.110
  • MY DEFINITION OF "COMMITMENT" IS
  • 00:54:57.110 --> 00:54:58.060
  • "STAYIN' LOYAL TO WHAT YOU SAID
  • 00:54:58.060 --> 00:54:59.170
  • YOU WERE GONNA DO, LONG AFTER
  • 00:54:59.170 --> 00:55:01.280
  • THE MOOD YOU SAID IT IN HAS LEFT
  • 00:55:02.030 --> 00:55:05.030
  • YOU."
  • 00:55:05.030 --> 00:55:07.020
  • HOW MANY OF YOU GUYS ARE
  • 00:55:07.020 --> 00:55:08.120
  • STILL STICKIN' TO YOUR
  • 00:55:08.120 --> 00:55:09.000
  • NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS, RIGHT?
  • 00:55:09.000 --> 00:55:09.210
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:55:10.190 --> 00:55:13.190
  • AND THE REASON WHY A LOT OF US,
  • 00:55:13.190 --> 00:55:14.120
  • WE DON'T STAY COMMITTED IS
  • 00:55:14.120 --> 00:55:15.010
  • BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE A BIG
  • 00:55:15.010 --> 00:55:15.210
  • ENOUGH REASON.
  • 00:55:15.210 --> 00:55:16.250
  • IF THE REASON IS BIG ENOUGH--
  • 00:55:16.250 --> 00:55:18.150
  • YOU KNOW, EVEN FROM A HEALTHY
  • 00:55:18.150 --> 00:55:19.240
  • LIFESTYLE, IF YOU BECOME SICK--
  • 00:55:19.240 --> 00:55:22.050
  • MY MOM HAS CANCER RIGHT NOW, AND
  • 00:55:22.050 --> 00:55:23.250
  • SO NOW THAT REASON TO BE HEALTHY
  • 00:55:24.030 --> 00:55:27.030
  • HAS NOW BECOME REAL BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:55:27.030 --> 00:55:28.210
  • BECOME LIFE OR DEATH.
  • 00:55:28.210 --> 00:55:30.060
  • WHEN THE REASON IS BIG ENOUGH, I
  • 00:55:30.060 --> 00:55:32.170
  • PROMISE YOU, YOU'LL STAY
  • 00:55:32.170 --> 00:55:33.200
  • COMMITTED.
  • 00:55:33.200 --> 00:55:34.060
  • THE SECOND THING IS DISCIPLINE.
  • 00:55:34.060 --> 00:55:36.140
  • DISCIPLINE IS SIMPLY THIS: GET
  • 00:55:36.140 --> 00:55:38.210
  • GOOD AT SAYIN', "NO," TO THE
  • 00:55:38.210 --> 00:55:40.230
  • THINGS AND PEOPLE THAT DON'T GET
  • 00:55:40.230 --> 00:55:41.170
  • YOU YOUR "YES"-- PERIOD.
  • 00:55:44.260 --> 00:55:47.260
  • THE THIRD THING IS CONSISTENCY.
  • 00:55:47.260 --> 00:55:48.180
  • "CONSISTENCY," FOR ME, TO PUT IT
  • 00:55:48.180 --> 00:55:50.020
  • IN A SHORT TERM, IS "SHOWIN' UP,
  • 00:55:50.020 --> 00:55:51.040
  • REGARDLESS."
  • 00:55:51.040 --> 00:55:53.030
  • WHEN YOU BECOME CONSISTENT,
  • 00:55:53.030 --> 00:55:54.220
  • YOU BECOME RELIABLE.
  • 00:55:54.220 --> 00:55:55.100
  • WHEN YOU BECOME RELIABLE,
  • 00:55:55.100 --> 00:55:55.290
  • YOU BECOME A
  • 00:55:55.290 --> 00:55:56.130
  • TRUSTWORTHY PERSON.
  • 00:55:58.200 --> 00:56:01.220
  • THE REASON WHY YOU GO TO YOUR
  • 00:56:01.220 --> 00:56:02.130
  • FAVORITE FOOD PLACE IS BECAUSE
  • 00:56:02.130 --> 00:56:03.170
  • THEY'RE CONSISTENT.
  • 00:56:03.170 --> 00:56:04.030
  • THE REASON WHY I'M ON THIS STAGE
  • 00:56:04.030 --> 00:56:05.070
  • RIGHT NOW IS MY CONSISTENCY.
  • 00:56:05.070 --> 00:56:06.160
  • IT'S NOT NECESSARILY BECAUSE OF
  • 00:56:06.160 --> 00:56:07.080
  • TALENT.
  • 00:56:07.080 --> 00:56:09.170
  • CAN PEOPLE TRUST YOU?
  • 00:56:09.170 --> 00:56:10.050
  • CAN YOU TRUST YOU?
  • 00:56:10.090 --> 00:56:13.090
  • THE FOURTH THING IS FAITH.
  • 00:56:13.090 --> 00:56:14.030
  • YOU GOTTA HAVE FAITH.
  • 00:56:15.120 --> 00:56:18.120
  • FAITH IS BELIEVIN' THE ODDS ARE
  • 00:56:18.120 --> 00:56:19.040
  • BEATABLE EVEN WHEN THE ODDS SAY
  • 00:56:19.040 --> 00:56:19.260
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:56:19.260 --> 00:56:20.100
  • THAT'S FAITH.
  • 00:56:20.100 --> 00:56:21.280
  • FAITH IS KNOWIN' THAT, "OKAY,
  • 00:56:21.280 --> 00:56:22.280
  • GOD'S SHOWN ME THIS VISION.
  • 00:56:22.280 --> 00:56:24.150
  • EVEN THOUGH I CAN'T SEE IT, EVEN
  • 00:56:24.150 --> 00:56:25.140
  • THOUGH I CAN'T SEE IT IN THE
  • 00:56:25.140 --> 00:56:27.050
  • PHYSICAL FORM, EVEN THOUGH I'M
  • 00:56:27.050 --> 00:56:27.260
  • EXPERIENCING ALL THESE STORMS
  • 00:56:27.260 --> 00:56:29.090
  • AND FAILURE, I KNOW WHAT GOD'S
  • 00:56:29.090 --> 00:56:30.140
  • SHOWING ME, SO I'M GONNA KEEP
  • 00:56:30.140 --> 00:56:33.040
  • WALKIN' THAT PATH."
  • 00:56:33.040 --> 00:56:33.200
  • THAT'S FAITH.
  • 00:56:33.200 --> 00:56:35.110
  • LAST STEP IS HEART, FINDIN' THE
  • 00:56:35.110 --> 00:56:36.130
  • STRENGTH TO GIVE MORE EVEN WHEN
  • 00:56:36.130 --> 00:56:38.070
  • EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY ELSE
  • 00:56:38.070 --> 00:56:39.230
  • SAYS YOU HAVE NOTHIN' LEFT.
  • 00:56:39.230 --> 00:56:41.260
  • SO WHEN EVERYBODY COUNTS YOU OUT
  • 00:56:41.260 --> 00:56:43.020
  • WHEN YOU'VE COUNTED YOURSELF
  • 00:56:43.020 --> 00:56:44.040
  • OUT, ARE YOU STILL GONNA BELIEVE
  • 00:56:44.040 --> 00:56:45.220
  • THAT GOD GOT YOU?
  • 00:56:45.220 --> 00:56:47.000
  • THAT'S THE CHAMPIONSHIP
  • 00:56:47.000 --> 00:56:48.220
  • MIND-SET.
  • 00:56:48.220 --> 00:56:50.190

  • - CLIFTON: WE ARE MORE THAN
  • 00:56:54.290 --> 00:56:55.190

  • YOU IS NOT SOMETHIN' EXTERNALLY.

  • GOD CREATED YOU WITH WORTH.
  • 00:57:13.160 --> 00:57:14.240
  • I KNOW, A LOT OF TIMES, WE HAVE
  • 00:57:14.240 --> 00:57:16.060
  • OUR WORTH DEPENDIN' ON
  • 00:57:16.060 --> 00:57:18.100
  • EVERYTHING EXTERNAL, WHETHER
  • 00:57:18.100 --> 00:57:19.030
  • WHETHER IT'S-- WHATEVER.
  • 00:57:21.230 --> 00:57:22.190
  • GOD GAVE YOU WORTH AT BIRTH.
  • 00:57:22.190 --> 00:57:23.170
