The Daily Scroll: A Mentorship Recap - May 6th, 2021 Show Notes

Kay:

Hey, there Questers welcome back. It's Thursday, May 6th, and this is episode 349. We have a J-Lo quote for you today and she says, "You get what you give. What you put into things is what you get out of them."

Shi:

Jennifer Lopez, she's so lovable and she's so talented.


Kay:

She is indeed still Jenny from the block.


Shi:

She is, and she's banging, and I love her and she's amazing. She's an actress, a singer, a songwriter, a dancer. She began just as a fly girl on In Living Color for those of you who remember that show. She was a regular there until she decided to pursue her acting career a couple of years later. So, J-Lo from the block and from In Living Color and now renown, of course, artist and featured in so many different things, but this is just good old fashion J-Lo advice.


Kay:

Oh, man. Well, she really did. She did and does put so much into everything that she does and this quote where she says, "You get what you give. What you put into things is what you get out of them." I think I have to say one of my favorite examples of this principle in action when it comes to J-Lo was the compounding consistency of a 50-year-old woman shaking her thing up on a Superbowl stage, the way that she did two years ago, like, holy! Can I please look that good when I am 50?


Shi:

Right.


Kay:

Dear Lord.


Shi:

Tony Robbins at his conferences often says, you know, if you work out five times a week or more, stand up, and then he says you can see the difference in people. If they have that level of commitment and you see that consistency compounded for someone like her. She's had an extremely active and dedicated, consistent life and that's shown in the results that have compounded for her over time. But not just physically, of course as her talents in singing have really advanced her range of voice, her ability to act. She's gotten into some serious roles and you think when you at first heard her and you started to see her in movies, that she wasn't going to be likable or believable, and she totally was. She's adorable, she's lovable, she's dimensional and she is a great reflection of this quote, "You get what you give, " and she has given a lot and she's gotten a lot.


Kay:

She really has and what I love that she really brings to the table is that she gives everything. I think that she has not just in practice, but in energy as well when she comes to the stage and you feel that. It's the difference between her and the people who haven't made it, I think that there is nothing left in J-Lo. I mean, there probably is. She could dig deep and find it.


Shi:

Probably yeah.


Kay:

She's a professional but she really puts her whole heart into her work, and she gets whole hearts out of that in return from her fans and loving her and following her and supporting her. When she was in that Super Bowl show, I just was like, man, every song, I forgot how many just solid hits…


Shi:

Solid hits keep on coming.


Kay:

J-Lo's got.


Shi:

They do. I think if you're like, you hear, you get what you give. What you put into things is what you get out of them and you 100% intellectually agree with that.


Kay:

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.


Shi:

Of course, I understand that I understand the way that our universe works. But in reality, if you're like me, you also argue with this a lot, you feel like you put in more, or you guilt yourself about not putting in enough, or the results don't match what you think you've put in. So, now you've got to have this internal conflict about what could I have done better, or what should I have done less of, or how could I have done things in a different way? So, we can get hung up on that, trying to analyze, I think the price that we've put in, and then we get stuck with arguing with the truth. What we know about that is that when we argue with reality, we're only wrong 100% of the time.


Kay:

Because the reality is what it actually is. So, when we embrace that, it can be very empowering for us. J-Lo, she's such a great example of this and when she's talking about what you put into things is what you get out of them you can work on something really, really hard and carry a sense of anxiety about that. While you have the hard thing and have the outcome come bad or not come out how you anticipated or expected, maybe because you didn't just put in hard work, but you also put in a lot of anxiety. You also put in a lot of fear. So, what are you putting not just physically energetically, emotionally, what are you putting into your dreams like J-Lo does in order to get out what she gets on the other end?


Shi:

So, to remind you, Ms. J-Lo tells us, "You get what you give. What you put into things is what you get out of them."


Kay:

So, we've got a #ThoughtfulThursday Quest for you today. We want you to give as much as you get, whether it is finalizing a project you're hoping will help you get to the next step in your career, or spending time with a little one to help you get to know them a little better. Swap out getting for giving today and just see where it takes you. Are you ready?


Kay & Shi:

Let's quest!
