相信国度的大伙儿们 大家好 我是伊万
What’s up believe nation?It’s Evan.
My one word is believe and I believe in people
more than they believe in themselves.
And my sincere hope is that if you see in you
what I see in you,
you’ll be able to change the planet.
我创建Mentor ME 系列是为了
I started the Mentor ME series with the goal
to try to learn from people who’ve done a
lot more than us. Try to hang out with people who
had more success than us and hopefully some
of their belifs, some of their mindset, some of their
将它融入我们的（信念 思维和工作方式） 助我们成为最好的自己
ways of working seep into us to help us become the best
version of ourselves. So today we’re gonna learn
from Floyd Mayweather and Carter McGregor and their motivation.
Also as you’re watching,
if you hear something that really resonates with you, please
leave it down in the comments below
and put quotes around it,
so other people can be inspired by it as well.
And if you leave it within the first couple hours of this video going live
you have a chance to win one of two daily prizes.
Do you remember the first time
that the thought of fighting Floyd Mayweather crossed your mind?
It’s been on,
it’s been on my radar for a long, long time.
And as a
as a young man coming up in the game,
in the sport of MMA,
I was listening to him in a similar weight class,
similar weight category,
speaking ill of the sport, speaking ill of the discipline.
And as a young kid
I’m looking at him in such a high level
saying these things about the sport
that I’m dedicating my entire life to, and I’m thinking
I’ll see you for that one day.
Why are we getting ready to watch Floyd “Money” Mayweather
in the ring against Conor McGregor August 26?
额 兄弟 是人们想要看的
Oh, man. It’s what the world demanded.
I put myself in the right position
to make it happen.
对 调整好自己 迎接它的到来
So I put myself in the right position to make it happen.
It’s all about chess.
And it’s not really about being on the chess board anymore.
It’s about controlling the chess board.
And you know that’s what I was able to do.
Did you want this fight,
or did you respond to somebody who wanted you?
Actually, I asked for the fight.
I think it was kind of mutual.
You know, I think I wanted to fight.
Pretty sure he wanted to fight.
I don’t think in the beginning,
Dana White thought the fight could happen.
But we’re here now
You wanted to fight, why?
Not just because that’s what the people wanted.
－我知道 我刚才听你说了 但－当然了
-I know, I got that answer but…-Of course.
– What else?- I mean, of course…
I mean if I could put myself in a position
to make nine figures, why not? Why not?
So I put myself in the position.
there would never be a fighter that’s on my level.
Because you have to be able to go where I go mentally.
You have to be on my level mentally.
And it’s hard for anybody to be on my level mentally.
Because I think outside the box.
That’s why I’m always doing record breaking numbers.
That’s why I’m always doing record breaking things.
That’s why I was able to go
on Dancing With the Stars and take chances
and go on WWE and still fans from the WWE
同样的 也一直是与星共舞的粉丝 并能抓住机会
are still fans from Dancing With the Stars and take chances
to become a household name.
To become a pay-per-view star,
to become a mega-superstar,
to have the biggest deal in sports history.
I roll the dice. I take chances.
When you hear boxing aficionados like Max Kellerman
say you’re not going to land a punch,
how did you react to that?
The people, like today, we posted videos of you hitting the bag
and it’s all people saying,
“Look, how slow he is.”
“He doesn’t know what he’s doing.”
“Look at this movement stuff.”
Do you enjoy that?
-Is that better for you?-You know, it it
It happens to all great straining methods.
Everything is criticized.
嗯 回顾以前 弗洛伊德最开始
I mean, originally Floyd, way back,
his method of hitting the pads and hitting the bag was ridiculed.
During the Hatton buildup
when I first can start seeing about Floyd.
They ridiculed his methods.
And then all of a sudden,
everyone starts trying to follow his methods.
You know, I mean when there’s success.
It’s been the same with me.
When I started incorporating movement training,
and I started incorporating soon, attacks and certain approaches
in the mixed martial arts game.
Ridiculed, it’s a joke, a joker.
As well, how many times have I been called a joke or a joker?
但后来 所有人都开始追随 尝试学习
And then everyone starts following, and trying to study.
It’s no different here.
The boxing game.
“哦 看啊 他不是这样做的”
“Oh, look, he doesn’t, he doesn’t move this way.”
“What’s he doing, this, that and the other.”
They just don’t understand. I mean they don’t understand.
They just try and discard it.
But thankfully, August 26th,
there can be no running from it.
So it will, the same thing that will happen that always happens.
They will try and push it away.
It will face… it will be put in front of them.
Floyd will be slapped,
and then they will begin the studying process,
and then they were… and then the implementing process,
and then I’m on to the next.
Which is what?
I’m on to my next wave of preparation.
So they’re here, and I’m here again.
And then I’m here, and then I’m here.
-Do you understand what I’m saying?-Yeah.
So that’s it. That’s life.
A man that has never been in a boxing ring,
is in the ring with the best ever.
That’s what you talk,
that’s what you describe yourself as being.
I don’t describe myself.
我们必须知道 人会说谎 但数据不会
We must realize, men lie, women lie, numbers don’t lie.
49 and 0.
Not just 49 and 0, you know.
Let’s really talk about,
Mayweather who didn’t broke every record in boxing.
When we get to talk about highest gate,
even it was like right now they’re saying,
“Off, Mayweather’s fight didn’t sell off.”
额 你知道吗 当他们能卖出去的时候
Well, you know, when they do sell out,
I think I’ll reach somewhere, like, you know that,
live gate reached like, 80 some million for this fight.
Already we’re already at 60 something million,
for those who are saying that Mayweather is not doing numbers anymore.
For us taking the less punishment.
I took less punishment than any fighter.
Not just best defense, let’s talk about offense.
The most accurate fighter of all time.
On the outside of the ring,
it’s not just about being in the inside of the ring.
I’ve already conquered that.
I was…I’m even smarter on the outside.
You know, I have to be a genius to even make a fight like this happen.
So what does that say about me
for making this fight happen?
It says that you’re a brilliant business man, not just a great boxer.
And that’s what I always spoke about,
that’s what I always spoke about.
I get my credit about what I do in the ring.
But I don’t get my credit about what I do on the outside.
Are you, I mean you’re enjoying great riches and success now,
but can you put yourself in the mindset of the guy who is waiting in line with other people?
-You remember what that guy was thinking?-Always.
Were you daydreaming of this? Was even possible to daydream?
Every second of every day I was daydreaming of it.
当然 我回过头再想 他们
But of course I can go back and think they’re,
You know, I live there in my inner that I already be there.
You know I show up and work every single day like I’m not in the position I’m in, like I’m not me.
So that’s the mindset I have and…
You’ve got fighters.
They may be faster than me.
You got fighters.
They may hit harder than me.
You got fighters that are very athletic.
But you don’t have no fighter that can make adjustments like me.
You don’t have fighters,
that can be on my level mentally.
It’s never personal for me.
It’s always business.
Every other fighters fight for certain things.
Every body fights for what they fight for.
My thing is this:
I keep my eyes on the prize.
I never focus on things outside the ring.
My focus is the guy that’s in front of me.
You get to where you’re tring to get to,
by staying focused, staying on a parallel path.
I always had a dream,
and my dream was to be the best.
No matter what happens Saturday.
When it comes down to boxing,
I’m the best at this.
What do you think they’ll say about you in 50 years?
You know, I’m not quite sure what they’ll say about me.
They’ll probably just say I’m a, I’m a young kid
who showed up when he said he was gonna show up.
就这样 我不知道 我确实没想过
That’s it. I don’t know. I don’t really think about that.
-You walk in here with the…-I just what I do know is, and that… I just know that it will live on.
That’s what I do know.
I cannot control what people say about me now, or in the future.
But I certainly know what I am doing,
and the stuff that I am doing and achieved
will live on long after I am gone.
As you’ve been away from the game and you reflect on your life and your career right now.
Where are you?
Just looking at the life of Floyd Mayweather.
Just looking at my life.
I don’t think most people could handle and do being in my shoes.
我觉得没人 我是说现在 我觉得
I don’t think, I mean, as right now, I don’t think.
No one can handle my situation.
– Why not?
– They just can’t.
-What’ your situation that can’t be handled?
I’m just saying that it’s like, I mean it feels like a pressure on me.
I mean, I guess they try to defeat me in many different ways.
They try to bring up the tax thing, they try to bring up he’s been locked up.
I mean, he’s arrogant, he’s unappreciative.
I mean, years and years and years,
they’ve been trying their best to defeat me mentally.
I can’t be defeated. I’m a strong individual.
Nothing can throw me off, nothing can throw me off, throw me off key.
I’m always focused on what I’ve got to do.
And that’s going to be the case August 26th?
August 26th is going to be real interesting.
And I’m told you that,
you’re not backing up.
I’m not backing up.
When I was a kid I always visualized stadiums.
And like, even when I was playing football and I kicked the ball against the wall,
and pretend I’d scored a goal and I’d run off and I’d be raising my hand,
and I’m visualizing an arena full of fans.
And that was something I’ done as a kid that was on my own.
Just running around kicking the ball.
I’d always had these visions of something.
I just did’t know what it was.
And I suppose when I came to these events,
and I started training and came to an event.
It was like,
okay, this is it, this is, this is what I’m going to do.
And then now I’m doing it.
但你有没有过我们称之为平凡的工作 朝九晚五 康纳 ？
But did you ever have, let’s call it a normal job, Conor, a 9 to 5?
Yeah, cause the Irish thing is to get into a trade straight away.
I was no different.
As soon as I finished school,
I was always getting pestered.
What are you doing with your life?
And this deal and that.
and… they did’t know what it was.
They did’t know what MMA was.
They did’t know none of this.
They did’t know what could I make a career out of it.
As far as they were concorned, my mum and dad I’m talking about.
As far as they were concorned, I was just getting into a cage,
and fighting with some other guy.
他们真的对此一无所有 没人懂 真的
They did’t know nothing about it. No one did, really.
But I knew.
You know what I mean, I knew.
I ended up getting a trade just to keep them quite.
I always uesd to have a lot of fights with my dad.
What trade did you get?
I ended up getting a trade as a plumber.
How bad was that?
– Plumber?- Yeah.
Were you actually in the trenches?
I mean it was an industrial.
So I’d be like building this, it’d be like the plumber that would be needed place like this.
Six o’clock in the morning and the motorway way.
I used to have to walk for about hour to get to the,
走到高速公路 站在路边 等着搭便车
to get to the motorway, and then I stand on the edge of the motorway, wait for a bloke to drive boy.
So you give me a lift and then the motorway was like a renovation at the time so.
It’ll take me two hours or two and a half hours to get to the place that was out in the country.
I’de be there for ten hours working,
and I was a first-year so as the worst of the worst.
And I mean, I was only a beginner.
Then two hours to get back in the traffic again.
Which was a horrible, horrible time.
That was like a gonna work.
I don’t want to do this, and then I just left,
I last 18, 18 months still,
was a tough time for me, just like,
it wasn’t the life for me.
and then, and then John said because I was training,
training with John as well at the time,
and then John got on Twitter says,
亲爱的 你有机会 把握住它 去拼搏吧
You have a show, on the show, would like to fight, honey.
And that was it.
I just packed it in, didn’t show up.
I used to come in and punch the head on me and like try and drag me a bag.
And I just wouldn’t go and I mean had Oprah off for a good few years with him all verbal and,
and, that was, yeah, I just packed it in, quit, and then focused on training.
我知道未来怎样 也知道我总有一天会成功 但他们不知道
That’s, I knew what was going to happen. I knew I was going to get here, they didn’t.
So that’s stress for years.
And a lot of tough times.
I proved them wrong.
I proved myself right.
But everything I do in my life is related to this.
I don’t do anything else if it’s not got to do with fighting.
I mean, that, that is why, you mean to be true that is more.
All you gotta do is show up.
And, I don’t know.
Do I look unhealthy?
Take a look at this physique.
I’m in a phenomenal shape in body and mind.
To me what is healthy is living an unhealthy life,
to me what’s unhealthy is getting up
and gone to the same day everyday.
A life like 9:00 to 5:00 in an office or in it.
God, that’s unhealthy.
That beats your mind.
I don’t work.
I love what I do, and that’s why I’m doing what I love.
你懂的 我爱它 所以把它当做事业对待
You know what I mean, that’s why it became a career for me because I love it.
I love what I do.
