Conversations with Cliff, ROBBIE w CLIFF #1.1

ROBBIE w CLIFF #1.1

I learned that Robby lives in perhaps the smallest community that I have ever heard. In a small village with about 200 people in it, as he said, not big in people, but big in land. So he has a lot of farmers who are neighbors, which works out pretty well for him because they can use tractors to plow the roads and whatnot, and he doesn't have to do any shoveling. Uh, he works in computers, um, and he watches a lot of movies and TV that are in English and he understands them, uh, right away. They, he doesn't translate that into Slovenian, into his head in his head, but when he speaks English, he first thinks it in Slovenian and then translate it. And he would like to break that habit and get more comfortable with just expressing himself directly in English. Uh, and the reason for that is because he likes to travel and he says, everybody speaks English. Uh, he has been to Argentina, Peru, Chile, Bolivia. And when he went there, he hiked because he likes to hike.

Uh, the problem is that, uh, he doesn't have very many friends who liked to hike, but he did, uh, join a club not too long ago, um, in order to have some companionship on those hikes, because it is better to share it. Uh, and that would have been a whole lot better. Had the pandemic not broken out and forced them to cancel a bunch of their outings. And it's still a little bit of an issue, but he still likes to get out there and hike. Um, as for his masterclass, he's not particularly big on sports and he doesn't follow formula one racing. So, um, his interest in Mr. Hamilton has nothing to do with his, uh, with his sports status, but more what he's talking about, which is success. And he's very interested in a success mindset and wants to learn how to be more successful, which also came out when we talked about who he would invite to a dinner, if he had the choice of anyone in the world, because he chose Tony Robbins and for the same reason self‑growth and success. So he's definitely somebody who has a lot of focus and drive in that area.
