"When you live in Iran you have a hard time believing in God": Patrick Bet-David opens up in Crowder interview
In this Ash Wednesday episode, Crowder was joined by Patrick Bet-David. The pair discusses choosing the right enemies on your way to success, politics, PBD’s career, what motivates highly successful people to continue to succeed, Tom Brady, and much more.
PBD started his podcast after he was told that media is not only the hardest profession to climb, but the most powerful.
Crowder mentioned how some of the most generous people he has met in life have been people who've been very successful and very wealthy and some of the most selfish and entitled people he has met have been poor people.
“Money amplifies character and if you're if you're a bad character it'll amplify it. So we as Christians and as conservatives are beholden to try and perform ethically,” Crowder said.
PBD is a Christian but prior to that, he was an Atheist due to his experience living in Iran.
“When you live in Iran you have a hard time believing in God,” PBD said.
He eventually became a Christian at 25 years old after he broke up with his girlfriend and asked God to bring his mom back into his life. Thirty seconds after he prayed, he got a call from her crying.
"I could have chosen to say it's ironic. I chose to believe it was God. He has my back and he's had my back from day one. That level of confidence I got from that moment -- that somebody was watching me and had my back is the reason why I am where I am today," PBD said.
PBD said he centered the book around choosing your enemies wisely because everyone has experienced unconditional love. Everyone has a person they loved that they really wanted to win over who betrayed them and backstabbed them. But if you choose the right enemy, it will bring out a side of you that's getting you to tolerate pain in ways others are not willing to tolerate.
“That'll help you compete at the highest level. So once I saw this format and I saw which people were the ones that were winning at the highest level and which ones weren't, the ones that typically won had chosen their enemies wisely. We put the business plan structure for them and they were on fire,” PBD said.
