this week is super casual just a stream of consciousness for you don't really even know where i'm going with this we'll see what this is this week it's just like if you and i sat down in my favorite restaurant i have just finished a plate of delicious biscuits and gravy i'm on who knows what cup of coffee maybe one too many and i'm just a little bit too talkative here's some things i'd like to share with you hi this is larry k with shadowanyone.com i'm the creator of the
00:31
investigators ultimate guide series i am a number one best-selling author a couple of times over and i've got all sorts of resources for free over at shadowanyone.com the thing that i want to talk about i don't know if you've ever heard this phrase or made this distinction but i think it really applies in our industry investigative and security industry my brothers and sisters who work security this is right in there for you as well it's the idea of inherited knowledge versus earned
01:01
knowledge or i think the way i originally heard it was it's the idea of inherited power versus earned power and the the classic example of this is a firearm a gun if someone has saved up their money driven down found the sidearm that they like they've got the cleaning uh gear for it the hard case the lock they've really
01:31
earned it more right they've gone out and worked a job to pay for this firearm and they're taking time of course to go to the range and practice and gun safety so now this person has earned the power of that firearm imagine now a person a crackhead walks down the street breaks the window of a car finds a handgun under the front seat while he's just rooting around for spare change
02:03
that's inherited power he just it just landed in his lap he didn't do anything to earn it think about how these two people treat that power differently the crackhead or anybody who who just comes across a stolen gun any kind of criminal they're going to be a lot more casual about how they handle that weapon how they how they carry that weapon pointing at people discharging it very casual because they just inherited all that power it's too much power
02:35
without the character to wield it properly okay what does that have to do with us maybe you don't have a sidearm maybe you don't carry one regularly for your job all perfectly fine i don't don't care to haven't for 20 plus years of doing this but the knowledge that we possess is the same thing some people go online and learn
03:05
something very casually and then they treat that knowledge casually whereas other people have really earned it over the years i you know a really great example of this in my mind is lock picking when i was growing up when i was learning this there was this was before the world wide web if you wanted to learn about something you had to go to the library go through the card catalog excuse me if i'm speaking a foreign language to some some younger people here
03:36
the every book was listed on three different cards one by topic one by author and one by uh drop it into comments whatever the third one is i i forgot what's title one is one title one is by author and one is by subject so you could go to the card catalog and look up lock picking find the books that correspond with that use the dewey decimal system to translate that book into a number go to the shelf and find it whoo i almost exhaust myself just explaining it i hope you didn't click away
04:08
and then you pull down the book and you start reading and what is this and i don't quite understand it and this other book added a little bit more and you eventually picked up whatever skill it was that you were interested in chemistry lock picking whatever it was now and to me it's a little scary not saying it's wrong it's just a little scary that there are people like crazy teaching lock picking instantly online you almost if you just have a whim you pull out your phone if you you tap a little bit with your thumbs and someone
04:40
is teaching you a skill that might have taken quite a bit of time back in the day to learn even once you put all the effort into finding the resource chemistry is the same way to learn it as i just described from a library that's a lot different than just click click click online and maybe it's just a suggested video for you of how to make some kind of explosive or inflammatory type thing that's just inherited knowledge then
05:10
they just dump into your lab how to make something from household household available chemicals and things that goes boom that's going to get abused and i'm not going to name specific examples but if you're in this industry or just maybe just in real life you you know what what types of things go boom in the real world on a petty small level on a on a teenagers that are bored or what that kind of level you know i would say even at the big
05:40
level the global terrorism type level um there are a lot of people who can learn to make some very deadly things very easily they've just inherited that knowledge rather than earning it and they use it like that they use it too casually the reason that i'm thinking about these things that it comes up for me is after eight years of teaching things weekly online what you know there's only so much you can teach and and i'm actually very blessed that you know you send me things and and that i get
06:12
ideas and my brain is always working and that i work in this industry and i'm always thinking of things i want to share with you and teach you and by the way when it comes time to buy stuff remember don't be buying stuff from someone promising you results they haven't obtained in their own life yeah this is my industry this is where i work and live and and love this stuff so i'm always coming across things to share with you but is there stuff that i hold back because
06:44
i just don't want it falling into pop culture yeah absolutely absolutely and it only takes a quick breeze through the comments to see the number of people that reach out to me to find their long-lost sister or whatever it might be how do i do it they might ask or where do i start well first of all i grant you eight years of videos is a lot of videos but at shadowanyone.com it's keyword searchable and skiptracing will give you a ton of ideas and places
07:16
to start if you need to find somebody earn the information if you're too lazy to actually learn it then you probably won't find this person and the problem is not that it really is a long lost sister but if this is a domestic violence thing and the victim is hiding old larry kay is not going to just hand you the answer to finding her it's just not going to happen and i truly believe a lot of people are stopped at that point as simple as it is if you're in this
07:46
industry they skip tracing that's pretty straightforward 99 of the time how you know but people outside this industry they don't know they check social media it comes up blank and then they're at a loss which public records mini course shadowanyone.com if you want to learn to find people without using social media or when that's a dead end or they don't have social media that's the place to learn it but let people there's just some stuff that people need to earn and sometimes that earning is not all
08:18
that difficult i will add in here piracy stealing digital information online be it books training videos that type of thing i mean obviously that's something that it's very close to home with me because you know that's a big chunk of my living is training people and the paid training and that is not a small part of my income i have it's a modest income but it's a big chunk of it and when my stuff is pirated and and traded around online
08:49
for free i will tell you what for a veteran-owned business a family business a small guy you know that hurts that really hurts the only consolation i have in a sense is the people who steal it pro probably aren't even watching the whole thing probably aren't learning it and i i don't believe anyone who's ever stolen my information has ever made any something of themselves from it because
09:19
they're just that's not their character that's not who they are the person who wants to invest one of my my big courses are 400 bucks a pop and yes they're frequently available for 250 250 not a small amount of money but the person who's willing to put that much skin in the game they're in the game now they're that's a person who's going to put the energy and time and effort into really learning it and making something from themselves of themselves and i know from the many many emails that i get and it
09:50
didn't happen for the first couple years which was kind of interesting but as i've done this year after year after year they've started to come in and it's more and more all the time of people saying larry you changed my life or larry i opened my business larry i got my pi license and that really is a big deal congratulations if you've done it because it's not an easy thing to do to get your pi license opening a process serving company not the hardest thing in the world anybody that's got
10:22
who's who's got the motivation for that can make that happen but getting your pi license that's that's a tough thing to do and i credit you if you got your pi license if you learn stuff from me if you are motivated by me if my courses have helped you that's wonderful but you know and i guess i guess i'm missing part of it because the people who steal my stuff are never going to contact me and say that that i was helpful to them but i honestly don't believe that they have it in in their core to succeed
10:53
in this industry and i i honestly think until they stop doing the wrong thing that really is holding them back if you're on the on if you're on that side of the the the wall the mountain the hill i get it i get it i i was quite broke once when you get to the top of the mountain when you get over the hill and you're on the other side you begin to realize you know that's you only get to the other side by doing the work to climb that mountain that's
11:23
just the way it works did you do you think this or did you ever think this oh my goodness i'm embarrassed i'm gonna share it with you anyways i probably will edit this out stupid embarrassing man if somebody would just if i just get five grand a month there's all these big rich corporations and all these wealthy people if somebody if i just had five grand a month coming in i would be set you know i wouldn't have to go to work i could just read or do whatever i want to do it did that you know i'd be set
11:55
oh my if you think that now i get it 100 used to believe that that ain't the way it is at all the way your life gets better is by the work that gets you to the point that you're trying to get to if somebody hands it to you no it ain't gonna happen you're just not you're not a better person the real ultimate goal is working to make yourself the best version of yourself that's that's what it's all about
12:27
if you are a praying person i think that it makes a pretty good prayer dear lord make me the best version of myself so i can lead others to you by my life and my love wow i'm not saying i'm there but that's where i'm headed and without doing the work no it doesn't matter if someone hands you if you just inherit that it's not going to work hit how many people hit the lottery and then 18 months later three years later they're bankrupt
12:58
they didn't earn it they didn't have the skill set to handle money when it was a hundred or a thousand dollars at a time when it's a hundred thousand dollars or a million dollars they still don't have that skill set what you do with pennies matters when you have dollars or thousands of dollars okay if you had to sum that up i guess how you do anything is how you do everything so don't if you're frustrated right now if you're a point where you're working and struggling to earn something be it
13:30
knowledge or a certain dollar amount or number of clients or whatever it might be man it's worth it it's a hundred times worth it because of the person it makes you if you have any ideas about this want to share please let me know i'd love to hear from you in the meantime this is larry k with shadowanyone.com remember do the right thing even if it's the hard thing
