Steve Simeone speaking with Rob Spencer about loving and being selfless
Rob: What’s the busiest intersection where you live?
Steve: There’s one right up my corner. At like Ventura and Sepulveda.
Rob: Brutal right?
Rob: What time of day is it busiest?
Steve: Either in the morning or
Rob: And is it chaos?
Steve: Chaos, yea
Rob: Ok so instead of here, we’re on the corner of that, what street?
Steve: Ventura and Sepulveda
Rob: Ventura and Sepulveda we’re there having the same conversation. And we’re vibing and like; hey dude you need to be selfless, you need to love, right?
Rob: You’re like; yea yea I agree, you’re like cool. Now, this is what I want you to do, I want you to run out in the middle of the intersection. What are you gonna tell me?
Steve: That’s crazy.
Rob: Right, that’s stupid. Well, here’s 10 bucks, go run out on the intersection. You know you’re going to get creamed, so why would you do that, right? - You wouldn’t.
Steve: [You] wouldn’t. No.
Rob: But the very next day, we’re having the same conversation, the same time of day, at the same intersection and the only thing different is today, you have Cam (Steve’s nephew) in a stroller with us. And I say hey yea, you gotta be selfless, you gotta love. And you’re like yea great, and you let your hands go and you clap in excitement and he rolls out into the street, what are you going to do?
Steve: Immediately jump and get him.
Rob: Without a second thought, without a hesitation.
Steve: No, yea immediately. Right. Immediately.
Rob: You’re going to do the thing that you wouldn’t do for any money the day before, because you’re living life on the love level. You’re selfless.
Steve: That’s awesome, that’s so true.
Rob: So what I like to do as a teacher of Martial Arts, and now just as an influencer of friends and people...
Rob: I want to try to show people that you can live life on the love level. You can live every moment, like that moment.
Steve: Amazing. Just you saying that, I already feel better about myself and life in general right now. Like I feel my body feel like; i’m like, no I feel better. Yea you’re right.
Rob: It’s [that] you are what you fill yourself up with.
Steve: So true.
