  • WAS THAT I NEVER UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:05:22.260 --> 00:05:24.110
  • SLEEP FROM THE BENEFITS OF
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:28.160
  • SLEEP, AND SO I LOOKED AT SLEEP
  • 00:05:28.160 --> 00:05:29.110
  • AS SOMETHING THAT WAS TAKING
  • 00:05:29.110 --> 00:05:30.120
  • AWAY FROM MY TIME OF DOING THE
  • 00:05:30.120 --> 00:05:31.270
  • THINGS THAT I LOVE TO DO AND THE
  • 00:05:31.270 --> 00:05:32.220
  • THINGS THAT I FELT PURPOSE TO
  • 00:05:32.220 --> 00:05:33.220
  • YOU KNOW, NOW I TALK ABOUT
  • 00:05:35.240 --> 00:05:37.030
  • WELLNESS FOR PURPOSE.
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:37.250
  • WELL, SLEEP IS ONE OF THE
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:38.190
  • ESSENTIALS OF WELLNESS, AND I'D
  • 00:05:38.190 --> 00:05:41.070
  • JUST LIKE TO KIND OF DEFINE THAT
  • 00:05:41.070 --> 00:05:42.210
  • BECAUSE, IN MY CASE, I THINK
  • 00:05:42.210 --> 00:05:43.270
  • IT'S LIKE MANY OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:45.040
  • WE THINK OF "WELLNESS" AS THE
  • 00:05:45.040 --> 00:05:46.280
  • ABSENCE OF DISEASE.
  • 00:05:46.280 --> 00:05:49.210
  • IT'S NOT THE ABSENCE OF DISEASE.
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:51.060
  • I'D LIKE TO GIVE YOU MY
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:52.170
  • DEFINITION, AND THAT IS THAT YOU
  • 00:05:52.170 --> 00:05:53.260
  • CAN HAVE THE VITALITY AND THE
  • 00:05:53.260 --> 00:05:55.170
  • ENERGY TO DO THE THINGS THAT YOU
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:05:57.060
  • LOVE AND PURPOSE TO DO, TO DAILY
  • 00:05:57.060 --> 00:05:59.080
  • HAVE POSITIVE EMOTIONS OF LOVE,
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:03.170
  • FORGIVENESS, GRATITUDE, AND
  • 00:06:03.170 --> 00:06:05.210
  • ACCEPTANCE, AND TO DEVELOP A
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:07.160
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND KNOW
  • 00:06:07.160 --> 00:06:08.120
  • HIS PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:09.220
  • SO, IN MY LIFE, I KNEW FITNESS,
  • 00:06:09.220 --> 00:06:12.180
  • AND SO I RAN EVERY DAY, THREE TO
  • 00:06:12.180 --> 00:06:15.020
  • FIVE MILES, SOMETIMES, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:06:15.020 --> 00:06:17.170
  • MORE THAN THAT, AND I TRAVELED
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:20.260
  • THE WORLD.
  • 00:06:20.260 --> 00:06:22.010
  • I TRIED TO GO ON THREE HOURS,
  • 00:06:22.010 --> 00:06:23.070
  • FOUR HOURS OF SLEEP, AND IF I
  • 00:06:23.070 --> 00:06:24.240
  • HAD NO SLEEP, I WORE THE BADGE:
  • 00:06:25.010 --> 00:06:28.010
  • "I DON'T NEED SLEEP."
  • 00:06:28.010 --> 00:06:30.210
  • SO HERE I AM, I'M RUNNIN' UP
  • 00:06:30.210 --> 00:06:32.120
  • THE BACK SIDE OF TROON MOUNTAIN
  • 00:06:32.120 --> 00:06:34.190
  • IN ARIZONA, AND I AM ABOUT
  • 00:06:36.240 --> 00:06:39.240
  • HALFWAY UP THE MOUNTAIN,
  • 00:06:39.240 --> 00:06:40.120
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN,
  • 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:41.120
  • DOWN MY LEFT SIDE,
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:42.090
  • I GET THIS PAIN.
  • 00:06:42.090 --> 00:06:43.060
  • WELL, I JUST TURNED 50.
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:45.170
  • MY GRANDFATHER DIED AT 41 YEARS
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:48.250
  • OF AGE, TELLING A JOKE IN A
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:49.180
  • HUNTING CAMP AND FELL OVER DEAD.
  • 00:06:49.180 --> 00:06:50.260
  • MY DAD WAS DIAGNOSED WITH HEART
  • 00:06:50.290 --> 00:06:53.290
  • DISEASE AND A QUADRUPLE BYPASS
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:55.160
  • WHEN HE WAS 38 YEARS OLD, SO
  • 00:06:55.160 --> 00:06:56.260
  • PART OF MY PROGRAM WAS THE
  • 00:06:56.260 --> 00:06:58.290
  • ABSENCE OF DISEASE: "I'M GONNA
  • 00:06:58.290 --> 00:07:00.110
  • EXERCISE, I'M--" BUT NOW I'M
  • 00:07:00.110 --> 00:07:01.210
  • HAVING THIS PAIN.
  • 00:07:02.050 --> 00:07:05.050
  • I THOUGHT I WAS HAVIN' THE HEART
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:06.100
  • ATTACK, SO I SAT DOWN.
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:07.290
  • OKAY, I'M STILL ALIVE.
  • 00:07:07.290 --> 00:07:10.020
  • I WALK HOME.
  • 00:07:10.100 --> 00:07:13.100
  • BEING ME, NEXT MORNING, I'M
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:15.000
  • RUNNIN' THE MOUNTAIN AGAIN, SO
  • 00:07:15.000 --> 00:07:16.040
  • IT'S UP THE MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:17.090
  • I GET PARTWAY UP THE MOUNTAIN,
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:20.020
  • AND GUESS WHAT HAPPENS?
  • 00:07:20.020 --> 00:07:22.100
  • NOW IT'S FURTHER ON DOWN AND
  • 00:07:22.100 --> 00:07:23.230
  • INTO MY LEG.
  • 00:07:23.230 --> 00:07:24.290
  • WELL, TO MAKE A SHORTER STORY OF
  • 00:07:24.290 --> 00:07:27.280
  • THIS, OVER THE NEXT MONTH, ALL
  • 00:07:28.070 --> 00:07:31.070
  • OF A SUDDEN, I FOUND MYSELF JUST
  • 00:07:31.070 --> 00:07:32.290
  • ON FIRE, I MEAN, LITERALLY ON
  • 00:07:32.290 --> 00:07:35.150
  • FIRE.
  • 00:07:35.150 --> 00:07:37.180
  • I WOULD HAVE JOLTS GO THROUGH MY
  • 00:07:37.180 --> 00:07:38.140
  • BODY WHERE I COULDN'T EVEN
  • 00:07:38.140 --> 00:07:40.150
  • REALLY DO THE THINGS THAT I
  • 00:07:40.150 --> 00:07:42.220
  • LOVED TO DO ANY LONGER, SO I
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:43.240
  • CHECKED INTO ONE OF THE WORLD

  • RENOWNED INSTITUTIONS, AND
  • 00:07:45.030 --> 00:07:46.210
  • HERE'S WHAT I'D HAVE: SLEEP
  • 00:07:46.210 --> 00:07:48.180
  • DEPRIVATION AND A NERVOUS SYSTEM
  • 00:07:48.180 --> 00:07:50.230
  • THAT HAD AN OVERACTIVE ADRENAL
  • 00:07:50.230 --> 00:07:52.120
  • GLAND, AND THAT WAS THE
  • 00:07:52.120 --> 00:07:55.000
  • BEGINNING OF AN INCREDIBLE
  • 00:07:55.000 --> 00:07:57.250
  • PERIOD OF TIME FOR ME BECAUSE,
  • 00:07:57.250 --> 00:08:00.060
  • WHEN I MET WITH THE DOCTORS AT
  • 00:08:00.080 --> 00:08:03.080
  • THE END, THEY SAID, "MICHAEL,

  • SLEEP "THE MAID SERVICE OF THE
  • 00:10:24.230 --> 00:10:26.140
  • BRAIN" BECAUSE, WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:10:26.140 --> 00:10:27.040
  • AWAKE, YOU HAVE TOXINS, AND YOU
  • 00:10:27.040 --> 00:10:29.030
  • ALSO HAVE THE WASTE PROTEIN THAT
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:32.060
  • IS GOING ON IN THE BRAIN.
  • 00:10:32.060 --> 00:10:34.010

  • CONTRIBUTING INTO THE DEMENTIA
  • 00:10:36.260 --> 00:10:38.060

  • ARE HAPPENING NOW WITH THE LACK
  • 00:10:39.070 --> 00:10:40.090
  • OF SLEEP.
  • 00:10:40.090 --> 00:10:41.260
  • WHEN YOU ARE SLEEPING, THE MAID
  • 00:10:41.260 --> 00:10:42.230
  • SERVICE COMES, AND IT CLEARS THE
  • 00:10:42.230 --> 00:10:44.120
  • BRAIN.
  • 00:10:44.160 --> 00:10:47.160
  • THAT'S JUST ONE, WHEN IT CALLS
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:48.200
  • THE IMPORTANCE OF IT, BUT LET'S
  • 00:10:48.200 --> 00:10:49.200
  • TALK ABOUT THE NERVOUS SYSTEM.
  • 00:10:49.200 --> 00:10:50.190
  • MINE WAS A NERVOUS SYSTEM,
  • 00:10:50.190 --> 00:10:52.260
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:10:52.260 --> 00:10:53.270
  • WELL, IF YOU'RE IN THE
  • 00:10:53.270 --> 00:10:56.050
  • FLIGHT-OR-FIGHT MODE-- RIGHT?
  • 00:10:56.210 --> 00:10:59.210
  • -- WHICH ANXIETY IS-- OKAY?
  • 00:10:59.210 --> 00:11:00.130
  • -- YOU'RE PRODUCING ALL KINDS OF
  • 00:11:00.150 --> 00:11:03.150
  • CORTISOL AND ALL KINDS OF
  • 00:11:03.150 --> 00:11:04.180
  • HORMONES THAT ARE GOING ON.
  • 00:11:04.180 --> 00:11:06.280
  • YOU'VE GOT CHEMICALS RUNNING
  • 00:11:06.280 --> 00:11:08.160
  • THROUGH YOUR BODY.
  • 00:11:08.160 --> 00:11:09.180
  • I WAS IGNORANT OF ALL THAT.
  • 00:11:09.180 --> 00:11:10.130
  • I DIDN'T KNOW THAT UNTIL I MADE
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:12.010
  • SLEEP ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT
  • 00:11:12.010 --> 00:11:13.250
  • THINGS IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:11:13.250 --> 00:11:16.010
  • AND IT WAS BEFORE I MET MIKE AND
  • 00:11:16.010 --> 00:11:17.120
  • BEFORE I HEARD ABOUT THE
  • 00:11:17.120 --> 00:11:18.120
  • PILLOWS, SO THIS IS A NUMBER OF
  • 00:11:18.120 --> 00:11:19.260
  • YEARS AGO, BUT I BEGAN TO
  • 00:11:19.260 --> 00:11:20.260
  • CHANGE, AND HERE'S THE FIRST
  • 00:11:21.280 --> 00:11:24.280
  • THING I DID: I SIMPLY SAID,
  • 00:11:24.280 --> 00:11:27.050
  • "SLEEP, YOU ARE MY FRIEND.
  • 00:11:27.050 --> 00:11:29.020
  • I INVITE YOU INTO MY LIFE TO
  • 00:11:29.020 --> 00:11:31.260
  • HEAL AND RESTORE.
  • 00:11:31.260 --> 00:11:33.090
  • THANK YOU, GOD, FOR SENDING
  • 00:11:33.090 --> 00:11:34.060
  • SLEEP INTO MY LIFE."
  • 00:11:34.210 --> 00:11:37.210
  • AND IT WAS AN AMAZING THING
  • 00:11:37.210 --> 00:11:39.120
  • FOR A GUY WHO DIDN'T SLEEP.
  • 00:11:39.120 --> 00:11:41.050
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN, IN ABOUT TWO
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:43.190
  • WEEKS' TIME, I WAS A
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:45.020
  • SEVEN-HOUR-A-NIGHT SLEEPER, AND
  • 00:11:45.020 --> 00:11:45.280
  • SO I DO BELIEVE THAT-- AND I
  • 00:11:45.280 --> 00:11:48.170
  • KNOW, MIKE, YOU HAVE A LOT YOU
  • 00:11:48.170 --> 00:11:49.160
  • CAN BRING FORWARD AS FAR AS THE
  • 00:11:49.160 --> 00:11:51.010
  • PILLOW AND THE NERVES AND THE
  • 00:11:51.010 --> 00:11:52.050
  • NECK AND-- BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:11:52.200 --> 00:11:55.200
  • YOU HAVE TO EMBRACE SLEEP AS A
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:11:57.060
  • FRIEND AND INVITE IT.
  • 00:11:57.060 --> 00:11:59.000
  • - MIKE: YOU KNOW, I CAN RELATE
  • 00:11:59.000 --> 00:12:00.200
  • TO THAT AND SO CAN ANY ADDICTS
  • 00:12:00.200 --> 00:12:02.040
  • OUT THERE.
  • 00:12:02.040 --> 00:12:03.070
  • ONE OF THE THINGS THAT, YOU
  • 00:12:03.070 --> 00:12:04.150
  • KNOW, WE FORGET ABOUT-- I'M
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:05.160
  • GONNA TIE IT INTO ADDICTION NOW,
  • 00:12:05.160 --> 00:12:06.230
  • FOR DRUG ADDICTION.
  • 00:12:06.230 --> 00:12:09.080
  • I WOULD STAY UP ALL THE TIME
  • 00:12:09.080 --> 00:12:10.270
  • 'CAUSE I WANTED TO GET MORE
  • 00:12:10.270 --> 00:12:12.040
  • DONE, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:12:12.040 --> 00:12:12.290
  • I MEAN, YOU COULD GET MORE DONE.
  • 00:12:12.290 --> 00:12:13.280
  • I KIND OF VIEWED IT AS A WASTE
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:15.060
  • OF TIME TOO, AND I THINK THAT
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:16.100
  • ADDICTS THAT ARE OUT THERE DYING
  • 00:12:16.180 --> 00:12:19.180
  • AND WITH THESE PHYSICAL
  • 00:12:19.180 --> 00:12:21.270
  • PROBLEMS, A LOT OF IT IS JUST
  • 00:12:21.270 --> 00:12:23.000
  • NOT THE DRUG.
  • 00:12:23.000 --> 00:12:25.050
  • IT'S ALSO A LACK OF SLEEP.
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:25.240
  • YOUR BODY'S WEAKER.
  • 00:12:25.240 --> 00:12:26.150
  • YOU'RE GETTIN' A HEART ATTACK,
  • 00:12:26.150 --> 00:12:27.060
  • OR YOU'RE HAVING THIS AND THIS
  • 00:12:27.060 --> 00:12:28.120
  • HAPPEN FROM THE LACK OF SLEEP,
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:31.160
  • AND SO, FOR ME, I COULD RELATE
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:33.230
  • TO EVERYTHING YOU SAID WHERE,
  • 00:12:33.230 --> 00:12:35.190
  • YOU KNOW, I VIEWED SLEEP
  • 00:12:35.190 --> 00:12:36.100
  • DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:12:36.100 --> 00:12:38.090
  • IT WAS LIKE, "OH, YOU KNOW, A
  • 00:12:38.090 --> 00:12:39.160
  • WASTE OF TIME."
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:40.100
  • YOU KNOW, NOW I LOOK FORWARD
  • 00:12:40.100 --> 00:12:41.230
  • TO IT BECAUSE IT'S REALLY--
  • 00:12:41.230 --> 00:12:44.070
  • IN REALITY, YOU LOOK AT IT,
  • 00:12:44.070 --> 00:12:45.020
  • IT'S NOT-- QUALITY SLEEP IS
  • 00:12:45.020 --> 00:12:46.080
  • NOT A WASTE OF TIME 'CAUSE YOU
  • 00:12:46.080 --> 00:12:47.210
  • GET SO MUCH DONE DURING THE DAY,
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:49.030
  • YOU FEEL SO MUCH BETTER.
  • 00:12:49.030 --> 00:12:49.280
  • YOU'RE ENJOYING LIFE THAT GOD

  • - MICHAEL: ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:53.000
  • THAT HAPPENED TO ME IS, WHEN I
  • 00:14:53.000 --> 00:14:53.280
  • CAME HOME FROM THE INSTITUTION--
  • 00:14:53.280 --> 00:14:56.050
  • BUT WHEN I CAME HOME, I DIDN'T
  • 00:14:59.000 --> 00:14:59.210
  • HAVE THE FOGGIEST IDEA WHERE TO
  • 00:14:59.210 --> 00:15:00.150
  • START.
  • 00:15:00.150 --> 00:15:03.000
  • THEY JUST SAID, "YOU MUST CHANGE
  • 00:15:03.000 --> 00:15:03.250
  • THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT HEALTH
  • 00:15:03.250 --> 00:15:04.260
  • AND CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK
  • 00:15:04.260 --> 00:15:05.170
  • ABOUT LIFE."
  • 00:15:05.170 --> 00:15:08.070
  • AND I THOUGHT I WAS A
  • 00:15:08.070 --> 00:15:08.250
  • PRETTY SUCCESSFUL GUY.
  • 00:15:08.250 --> 00:15:10.120
  • I THOUGHT THE WAY I WAS
  • 00:15:10.120 --> 00:15:11.160
  • THINKING-- EXCEPT FOR I HAD
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:13.160
  • PAIN, I WAS ON FIRE, AND I
  • 00:15:13.160 --> 00:15:15.030
  • COULDN'T PERFORM ANY LONGER.
  • 00:15:15.030 --> 00:15:17.020
  • SO HERE'S WHAT I DID: I WENT
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:18.280
  • HOME, I WENT TO MY UPSTAIRS
  • 00:15:18.280 --> 00:15:21.140
  • WHERE MY OFFICE IS AT, AND I
  • 00:15:21.140 --> 00:15:23.220
  • LAID ON THE FLOOR, AND I WAS
  • 00:15:23.220 --> 00:15:25.040
  • LIKE, "GOD, WOULD YOU JUST DO
  • 00:15:25.040 --> 00:15:27.160
  • SOMETHING SUPERNATURAL FOR ME,
  • 00:15:27.160 --> 00:15:29.060
  • AND WOULD YOU HEAL ME, AND I
  • 00:15:29.060 --> 00:15:30.170
  • WILL BE A DIFFERENT GUY?"
  • 00:15:30.170 --> 00:15:32.170
  • DIDN'T HAPPEN.
  • 00:15:32.260 --> 00:15:35.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:15:35.260 --> 00:15:37.010
  • BUT I DID GET UP ON THE CHAIR,
  • 00:15:37.010 --> 00:15:38.130
  • AND I TOOK HOLD OF MY ARM, AND I
  • 00:15:38.130 --> 00:15:40.010
  • SAID, "YOU KNOW, YOU ARE HIS
  • 00:15:40.010 --> 00:15:42.070
  • TEMPLE, AND I'M GONNA LEARN TO
  • 00:15:42.120 --> 00:15:45.120
  • NURTURE, AND I'M GONNA LEARN TO
  • 00:15:45.120 --> 00:15:46.130
  • "GOD, I AM ON A WELLNESS JOURNEY
  • 00:15:50.040 --> 00:15:51.280
  • TO DISCOVER THE ESSENTIALS OF

  • WELLNESS, AND I WILL HONOR THIS

  • TEMPLE."
  • 00:15:56.250 --> 00:15:58.060
  • AND I THINK THAT'S ONE
  • 00:15:58.060 --> 00:15:59.140
  • OF THE MOST AMAZING THINGS FOR
  • 00:15:59.140 --> 00:16:00.200
  • EVERY ONE OF US TO DO IS TO COME
  • 00:16:00.200 --> 00:16:02.100
  • INTO THAT REALIZATION 'CAUSE IT
  • 00:16:02.100 --> 00:16:03.200
  • MAKES CHOICES A LOT EASIER.
  • 00:16:03.200 --> 00:16:06.080
  • IT WAS NO LONGER ABOUT JUST FOR
  • 00:16:06.080 --> 00:16:07.000
  • MY OWN HEALTH OR JUST FOR MY
  • 00:16:07.000 --> 00:16:08.190
  • OWN, YOU KNOW, WELL-BEING.
  • 00:16:08.190 --> 00:16:11.120
  • IT BECAME A "WHAT ARE THE
  • 00:16:11.120 --> 00:16:13.030
  • CHOICES THAT I'M GONNA MAKE,
  • 00:16:13.030 --> 00:16:14.200
  • FROM HERE ON OUT, TO HONOR THIS
  • 00:16:14.200 --> 00:16:16.160
  • TEMPLE, AND HOW WILL I NURTURE
  • 00:16:16.160 --> 00:16:17.270
  • AND HOW WILL I

  • NOURISH IT?"
  • 00:16:18.130 --> 00:16:19.220
  • AND THAT THE BEGINNING OF
  • 00:16:19.220 --> 00:16:21.120
  • AMAZING CHANGE IN MY LIFE.

  • OVER-THE-COUNTER TYPE OF

  • MEDICATION BECAUSE YOU'RE TAKIN'
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:11.120

  • INTERFERE WITH THE BRAIN AND
  • 00:17:24.110 --> 00:17:26.130
  • WHAT THE NORMAL PROCESS OF THE
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:27.140
  • BRAIN IS TO SLOW DOWN AND GO
  • 00:17:27.140 --> 00:17:29.190
  • INTO THE SLEEP STAGES, AND

  • DESERT, AND THE LORD SAYING
  • 00:18:18.010 --> 00:18:20.040

  • AND, IN GENERAL, A LOT OF THE
  • 00:18:33.020 --> 00:18:35.150
  • TRIVITA PRODUCTS CAME OUT OF A

  • ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP,
  • 00:18:44.190 --> 00:18:45.100
  • THE IDEA OF THIS, BECAUSE THE

  • OVERALL IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP?
  • 00:18:52.080 --> 00:18:55.080
  • OBVIOUSLY, IT'S A PERSONAL
  • 00:18:55.080 --> 00:18:56.050
  • IMPORTANCE TO WHAT YOUR
  • 00:18:56.050 --> 00:18:58.010

  • PURPOSE, WELLNESS FOR PURPOSE,
  • 00:19:21.020 --> 00:19:22.210
  • AND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THAT

  • ONE GUY BOUGHT A PILLOW FROM ME,
  • 00:34:43.090 --> 00:34:44.090

  • AND I SAID, "OH, I'M ALL OUT,"
  • 00:34:49.070 --> 00:34:51.020
  • AND I WROTE IT ON A PIECE OF

  • PAPER AND GAVE HIM THAT CARD.
  • 00:34:52.050 --> 00:34:53.220
  • AND AFTER CHRISTMAS THAT YEAR,
  • 00:34:53.220 --> 00:34:55.280

  • BUY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.
  • 00:35:17.110 --> 00:35:20.110
  • AND HE CALLS UP.
  • 00:35:20.110 --> 00:35:20.250
  • HE SAYS, "ARE YOU THE GUY THAT
  • 00:35:20.250 --> 00:35:21.160
  • INVENTED THIS PILLOW FROM HERE
  • 00:35:21.160 --> 00:35:22.070
  • IN MINNESOTA?"
  • 00:35:22.070 --> 00:35:23.190

  • 00:35:23.190 --> 00:35:24.220
  • HE GOES, "THIS CHANGED
  • 00:35:24.220 --> 00:35:25.210
  • MY LIFE."
  • 00:35:25.210 --> 00:35:26.050
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:35:26.050 --> 00:35:26.270
  • "THIS IS THE BEST--" NOT
  • 00:35:26.270 --> 00:35:27.260
  • "PILLOW"-- "THE BEST PRODUCT
  • 00:35:27.260 --> 00:35:29.040
  • I'VE EVER BOUGHT," WHICH I'VE
  • 00:35:29.040 --> 00:35:30.140
  • HEARD MILLIONS OF TIMES AFTER
  • 00:35:30.140 --> 00:35:32.070
  • THAT, BUT HE SAID,
  • 00:35:32.070 --> 00:35:34.060
  • "I RUN THE MINNEAPOLIS HOME

  • WOULD YOU LIKE A SPOT IN THERE?"
  • 00:35:36.230 --> 00:35:37.280
  • SO I WENT INTO THERE, AND I
  • 00:35:37.280 --> 00:35:38.180
  • CHANGED MY BOOTH.
  • 00:35:38.180 --> 00:35:40.070
  • I PUT A TABLE OUT IN FRONT OF

  • ME, AND I DID THE SELLING WHERE
  • 00:35:41.110 --> 00:35:44.100
  • I COULD TALK TO PEOPLE, AND WHAT
  • 00:35:44.100 --> 00:35:45.140
  • FED ME WAS PEOPLE WOULD COME UP
  • 00:35:45.140 --> 00:35:46.180
  • AND SAY-- YOU KNOW, THEY BOUGHT
  • 00:35:46.180 --> 00:35:49.110
  • THE PILLOW THE PREVIOUS DAY.
  • 00:35:49.110 --> 00:35:50.200
  • I MEAN, IT WAS A PHENOMENON.
  • 00:35:50.200 --> 00:35:51.230
  • THEY HADN'T EVEN SEEN AT THE
  • 00:35:51.230 --> 00:35:52.250
  • SHOW.
  • 00:35:52.250 --> 00:35:54.020
  • PEOPLE WOULD COME UP THE NEXT
  • 00:35:54.020 --> 00:35:55.000
  • DAY AND GO, "I SLEPT ON THIS
  • 00:35:55.000 --> 00:35:55.230
  • LAST NIGHT.
  • 00:35:55.230 --> 00:35:56.080
  • IT CHANGED MY LIFE."
  • 00:35:56.080 --> 00:35:56.240
  • AND THEY'RE TELLIN'
  • 00:35:56.240 --> 00:35:57.190
  • OTHER PEOPLE IN FRONT OF ME,
  • 00:35:57.190 --> 00:35:58.280
  • AND IT'S MAKIN' ME FEEL GOOD
  • 00:35:58.280 --> 00:35:59.180
  • INSIDE.
  • 00:35:59.180 --> 00:36:00.200
  • IT WASN'T ABOUT THE MONEY.
  • 00:36:00.200 --> 00:36:01.210
  • I'M GOIN', "WOW, THIS IS
  • 00:36:01.210 --> 00:36:03.030
  • AMAZING," AND, STILL, THAT'S
  • 00:36:03.030 --> 00:36:04.110
  • WHAT KEEPS ME GOIN' TO THIS DAY.
  • 00:36:04.110 --> 00:36:07.070
  • I'M GOIN', "WOW, WE HAVE ALL
  • 00:36:07.070 --> 00:36:08.070
  • THESE LIVES CHANGED,"
  • 00:36:08.070 --> 00:36:09.110
  • AND SO I DID SHOWS FOR
  • 00:36:09.110 --> 00:36:10.210
  • FIVE YEARS AND MADE
  • 00:36:10.210 --> 00:36:12.150
  • THE PILLOWS.
  • 00:36:12.150 --> 00:36:15.020
  • YOU KNOW, WE MADE 'EM OURSELVES.
  • 00:36:15.020 --> 00:36:16.090
  • I HAD TO LEARN HOW TO SEW.
  • 00:36:16.090 --> 00:36:17.200
  • I DREW A MAP FOR MY SON.
  • 00:36:21.110 --> 00:36:21.290
  • I SAID, "SOMEDAY, WE'RE GONNA
  • 00:36:21.290 --> 00:36:23.000
  • HAVE A FACTORY, AND WE'RE GONNA
  • 00:36:23.000 --> 00:36:24.090
  • HAVE-- IT'S GONNA BE CALLED

  • LITERALLY, THAT NAPKIN, YOU
  • 00:36:28.000 --> 00:36:29.050
  • COULD LAY IT OVER THIS BUILDING,
  • 00:36:29.050 --> 00:36:30.010
  • AND HE'D ASK ME ALL THESE
  • 00:36:30.160 --> 00:36:33.160
  • QUESTIONS BACK THEN.
  • 00:36:33.160 --> 00:36:34.200
  • WELL, THAT SAME SON NOW RUNS--
  • 00:36:34.200 --> 00:36:35.230
  • HE HAS A THOUSAND PEOPLE IN THE
  • 00:36:35.230 --> 00:36:37.260
  • TWO BUILDINGS THAT HE TAKES CARE
  • 00:36:37.260 --> 00:36:39.230
  • OF, YOU KNOW, AND THEN, I'M
  • 00:36:40.090 --> 00:36:43.090
  • GOING, "YOU KNOW, IF EVERYBODY'S
  • 00:36:43.090 --> 00:36:44.190
  • TURNIN' ME DOWN--" ALL THE BOX
  • 00:36:44.190 --> 00:36:45.250
  • STORES TURNED ME DOWN.
  • 00:36:45.250 --> 00:36:46.260
  • I WAS TURNED DOWN THREE TIMES BY
  • 00:36:46.260 --> 00:36:49.000
  • SHOPPING CHANNELS.
  • 00:36:49.000 --> 00:36:50.110
  • THEY GO, "THIS IS NOTHIN'."
  • 00:36:50.110 --> 00:36:51.170
  • I GO TO AN INVENTOR'S THING,
  • 00:36:51.170 --> 00:36:52.080
  • AND THEY GO,
  • 00:36:52.080 --> 00:36:53.020
  • "THIS IS NOTHIN', YOU KNOW."
  • 00:36:53.020 --> 00:36:53.230
  • BUT I KEPT HEARIN' IT FROM
  • 00:36:53.230 --> 00:36:55.150
  • THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES, AND
  • 00:36:55.150 --> 00:36:57.040
  • FINALLY I SAID, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:36:57.040 --> 00:36:58.090
  • IF NO ONE'S GONNA TAKE US, WE'RE
  • 00:36:58.090 --> 00:36:59.260
  • GONNA BRING IT RIGHT TO THE

  • PEOPLE."
  • 00:37:01.090 --> 00:37:02.020
  • AND I HAD A DREAM,
  • 00:37:02.020 --> 00:37:03.250
  • ANOTHER DREAM, OF AN INFOMERCIAL
  • 00:37:03.250 --> 00:37:05.070

  • TALK THEN, SO I'M KIND OF GOING,
  • 00:37:11.010 --> 00:37:11.240
  • "WELL, MAYBE SOMEBODY ELSE IS IN

  • THERE," YOU KNOW?
  • 00:37:12.160 --> 00:37:14.040
  • "I'LL JUST GIVE 'EM THE IDEA,"
  • 00:37:14.040 --> 00:37:15.200
  • AND I WANTED IT TO BE A REAL
