Well coach Joseph Gibbs has -- -- like you wouldn't believe I don't know where you would be -- you -- more you would have been living if you don't know who he is three time Super Bowl winning head coach three time NASCAR series championship team owner.
And -- pro football hall of Famer as a head coach of course of the Washington Redskins.
He also works with troubled youth in and between all that and finds time to write some books this one's already on the New York Times.
Latest book is called game plan for life your personal.
Play book for success.
Great stuff coach -- Honored to have you on the program thanks for hanging out -- -- and.
I'm -- thank you very much.
See you all over the place I feel like we spent a lot of time together we've had one other phone conversation but rather mad that.
I'm thrilled to be on the show thanks for having me on.
Now thank you sir we're we're glad to have you here so I I kind of know the secret to this have been looking through it and man recognize some friends doing this book with you.
Some others -- mutual friends that you and I have but talk about it what is the game plan for life.
Well I -- candidate is you and -- are playing and Mara thought about.
Life as I went through it.
Life really to me is a game you and I the players gods are hitting coach we're playing in the biggest game evolve and certainly -- wants them lose in the biggest game evolved.
So if guys are -- coach.
The most importantly I -- with the risk cancers crafty game plan.
-- -- put us here to play the game of life without a game plan out thanks so it's his word.
And so basically what this project is its eleven scholars that is spent their life studying like god has to say in his word about the topics.
He's eleven topics and eleven topics.
Are the ones that -- we commissioned every search firm to go out America and ask America why -- the eleven.
Topics are issues are not eleven leading -- -- number.
We said why the issue that you need to have success and dilemma modern day successful lightning came back those topics and we matched up.
Two scholars my part -- it is to kind of -- the average Joseph that's -- averaged John not a scholar.
We've my story through there and illustrate to people when you veer away from these principles you -- in big trouble.
So people like Randy -- -- who has a fabulous book called heaven.
And -- he speaks in this book about haven't we we've got Josh McDowell on the relevance of the Bible Don Meredith phone sex marriage relationships absolutely home run there.
Of course Tony Evans odds -- who better to talk about vocation and odds.
Wow what a great.
What a great down -- got you got it -- all star lineup here.
Yeah I I -- -- I was so nervous when I initially because.
-- send -- the reputations most of these guys have are they they haven't been published and all things they've done in life I got a case that my hands sweat and he -- pop baffled when I go to -- some of these guys because.
And a lot of ways it was a coal column I was saying Tom I like here's the project that I was so nervous about approaching them let them but I think as a group.
This an outstanding group the guys are one of the greatest things about this project is I've got.
Be on the show with you I've got a chance to meet these guys personally.
They've all agreed to do four hours here with me on updated video conversations so we can update -- material as we go.
While so the eleven most -- topics most -- conversations including finance including marriage.
Including your vocation choosing your location those kinds of wind -- from the top people broken down but your story is woven through here too and you know.
I think that's important -- blew my buddy a good friend -- the financial section in this which is absolutely incredible I don't think you could've gotten anybody better.
So talk a little bit about that because you you mean you've been through some stuff NASCAR is not a cheap endeavor.
Yeah and you guys have been there is uninteresting stuff financially -- -- gives household.
Now I have as a matter of fact I wish -- next year that -- back here is Big Apple today hit it about as a matter of -- with Ron.
And -- Paul -- and a few people that.
Came on board to kind of help me what happened to me basically.
And as I was playing in the game of life.
OK but I was a study in the game plan.
And became makers and -- -- Redskins.
I looked around and I said to myself OK I got to use this platform is I'm not making a lot of money.
To get financially.
And instead of just being willing to trust -- coach football I jumped off and two simple partnership.
And Norman Oklahoma and real estate and as you know if you're in a simple partnership the first principle that god teaches in here.
-- -- about finances is never coast time alone unless you're willing to pay it off in other words if you get on along.
And you agree to stand by somebody you may have to pay it off why got a simple partnership.
Which allowed as you know a simple partnership says the partnership can sign on any.
Anything they want -- out there -- not I'm also signed.
I think you wouldn't tell me talk here -- fool that which I was.
And so the bottom line is nice story -- here is weaving through sand like this is where I veered away from godly principles.
And that the thing I want to share with people -- -- I say time to read the book I'll save you ten years of misery -- if if if itself.
But all the places where I kind of went rock then of course -- By following God's principles.
You know I've been able to meet with some measure success at an average Joseph the PE major that's ballroom dancing and -- Has a chance to go out in the world.
And obviously when Super Bowls senate and listen championships and then develop a business.
Of our own here in Charlotte so.
I think that's kind of average Joe's story.
With the scholars.
Writing one chapter to try to show America CA I think the principles we need him to live life by her in this word.
I would love -- many times we're talking about these subjects that were talking about today politically morally.
I wish people -- stop and say I wonder what god has say about this.
Because that's what I -- -- know and making a decision.
-- certainly take you.
