  • PARENTS DIVORCED WHEN DIVORCES WEREN'T COMMON
  • 00:02:37.010 --> 00:02:38.230
  • BACK WHEN I WAS 7 YEARS OLD, AND I WAS PUT INTO A
  • 00:02:38.250 --> 00:02:41.200

  • BACK NOW AND JUST TRY TO FIT IN I COULDN'T TALK TO
  • 00:02:44.200 --> 00:02:46.260

  • THE 2 TO TRY AND BE ACCEPTED.
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:51.200
  • AND BY THAT TIME I WORKED AT A GROCERY STORE AND A

  • DRIVE IN MOVIE THEATER, AND IN FACT, GOT FIRED
  • 00:02:56.190 --> 00:03:02.080

  • BUT I GOT TO MY FIVE YEAR REUNION AND PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:03:10.030 --> 00:03:12.240
  • SO FAR AHEAD OF ME.
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:14.110

  • 00:06:45.220 --> 00:06:47.230
  • SECOND DEGREE BURNS, JUST THINGS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:06:47.250 --> 00:06:49.180
  • - SO YOU WERE BASICALLY A MESS BACK THEN.
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:50.280
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:52.060
  • OH, YEAH.
  • 00:06:52.080 --> 00:06:53.200
  • I WOULD DO STUFF TO SHOW OFF TO PEOPLE TO
  • 00:06:53.220 --> 00:06:56.070
  • BE ACCEPTED.
  • 00:06:56.090 --> 00:06:57.170
  • - AND WHAT WAS INSIDE OF YOU THAT WAS CAUSING YOU
  • 00:06:57.190 --> 00:07:00.110
  • TO ACT OUT IN THIS WAY?
  • 00:07:00.130 --> 00:07:03.190
  • - I DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:07:03.210 --> 00:07:05.150
  • I CAN LOOK BACK NOW AND SAY, YOU KNOW, IT WAS A
  • 00:07:05.170 --> 00:07:10.120
  • FEAR OF FALLING TOO FAR BEHIND MY PEERS, MY FEAR
  • 00:07:10.140 --> 00:07:13.040
  • OF REJECTION, WANTING TO BE ACCEPTED.
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:14.280
  • THERE WAS A LONELINESS THAT GOES WITH I THINK
  • 00:07:15.000 --> 00:07:17.020
  • PEOPLE THAT GET DEEP INTO ADDICTION.
  • 00:07:17.040 --> 00:07:18.270
  • AND I WANTED A FAMILY.
  • 00:07:18.290 --> 00:07:21.070
  • I WANTED -- I CAN IMAGINE GRANDCHILDREN AND I'M
  • 00:07:21.090 --> 00:07:24.080
  • GOING THIS IS WHAT I WANTED.
  • 00:07:24.100 --> 00:07:26.050
  • IN MY UP BRINGING I HAD SEEDS PLANTED, BIBLE
  • 00:07:26.070 --> 00:07:28.220
  • SCHOOL AND WE WENT TO CHURCH, BUT IT WOULD ONLY
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:30.250
  • BE WHEN I NEEDED IT.
  • 00:07:30.270 --> 00:07:32.130
  • I'M GOING OKAY, GOD, GET ME OUT OF THIS.
  • 00:07:32.150 --> 00:07:35.060
  • GET ME OUT OF THIS, AND I GOT TO BE COMPLACENT.
  • 00:07:35.080 --> 00:07:37.130
  • NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENED TO ME I'D COME OUT THE
  • 00:07:37.150 --> 00:07:39.080
  • OTHER SIDE UNSCATHED, AND THEN IN 1987 I ENDED UP
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:42.150
  • MEETING THIS GAL AND WE GOT MARRIED, AND
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:46.200
  • EVERYTHING WAS HANDED TO ME, OR ALL THE SUDDEN MY
  • 00:07:46.220 --> 00:07:48.290
  • DREAM WAS ANSWERED.
  • 00:07:49.010 --> 00:07:51.030
  • I HAD A WIFE, FOUR KIDS, AND WE WERE VERY FUNCTIONING
  • 00:07:51.050 --> 00:07:55.010
  • 20 YEAR MARRIAGE, BUT WE ENDED UP ENTREPRENEUR
  • 00:07:55.030 --> 00:07:57.040
  • BUYING BARS, OKAY.
  • 00:07:57.060 --> 00:08:00.240
  • THAT WAS A REAL GOOD TIME.
  • 00:08:00.260 --> 00:08:03.020
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:03.040 --> 00:08:04.230
  • SO WE HAD ONE OF THE BARS I HAD FOR 13 YEARS, AND
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:06.260
  • NEVER USED A BANK.
  • 00:08:06.280 --> 00:08:08.210
  • I WOULD BUY IT ON CONTRACT FOR DEED,
  • 00:08:08.230 --> 00:08:10.130
  • RESTRUCTURE IT, AND I WORKED HARD.
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:13.020
  • BUT IN THE BAR I COULD ENTERTAIN PEOPLE.
  • 00:08:13.040 --> 00:08:16.060
  • THERE WAS NEVER ANY FIGHTS.
  • 00:08:16.080 --> 00:08:17.240
  • I LEARNED I COULD READ PEOPLE WHEN THEY CAME
  • 00:08:17.260 --> 00:08:19.190
  • IN THE DOOR.
  • 00:08:19.210 --> 00:08:20.290
  • - STILL ON DRUGS?
  • 00:08:21.010 --> 00:08:22.100
  • - OH, YEAH.
  • 00:08:22.120 --> 00:08:23.130
  • OH, YEAH.
  • 00:08:23.150 --> 00:08:25.060
  • - HEAVY COCAINE, BUT YOU'RE IN A BAR.
  • 00:08:25.080 --> 00:08:27.090
  • EVERYBODY WAS DOING DRUGS OR DRINKING, AND I WAS
  • 00:08:27.110 --> 00:08:29.040
  • ALWAYS ON COCAINE THEN.
  • 00:08:29.060 --> 00:08:31.030
  • WE DID SO MUCH AT THE TIME, BUT
  • 00:08:31.050 --> 00:08:33.030
  • VERY FUNCTIONING.
  • 00:08:33.050 --> 00:08:34.240
  • AND YOU'RE IN THE BAR BUSINESS SO THAT WAS EASY.
  • 00:08:34.260 --> 00:08:37.040
  • THINGS I GOTTA WAY WITH WHERE I DIDN'T HAVE TO
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:39.060
  • WORRY ABOUT-- AN ADDICT, THERE'S SO MUCH WORK THAT
  • 00:08:39.080 --> 00:08:42.180
  • GOES INTO ADDICTION TO HIDE YOUR ADDICTION, TO
  • 00:08:42.200 --> 00:08:44.250
  • GET YOUR ADDICTION, TO ALL THESE THINGS, THE
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:46.290
  • PERSON YOU ARE INSIDE AND MAYBE YOU'RE BREAKING
  • 00:08:47.010 --> 00:08:49.210
  • SOME OF THESE THINGS THAT, YOUR PROMISES
  • 00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:54.000
  • OR WHATEVER.
  • 00:08:54.020 --> 00:08:55.180
  • BUT I WAS VERY GOOD AT TRYING TO
  • 00:08:55.200 --> 00:08:57.020
  • HIDE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:08:57.040 --> 00:08:58.170
  • IN FACT, MY KIDS WILL TELL YOU THEY NEVER EVEN
  • 00:08:58.190 --> 00:09:00.040
  • KNEW WE WERE ON DRUGS.
  • 00:09:00.060 --> 00:09:01.120
  • - WOW.
  • 00:09:01.140 --> 00:09:02.240
  • - LET'S PUT A PIN KIND OF IN WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:04.200
  • FIRST OF ALL, I JUST WANT TO SAY THIS, WE'RE HERE
  • 00:09:04.220 --> 00:09:09.110
  • IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, WE'RE SITTING DOWN WITH
  • 00:09:09.130 --> 00:09:11.160
  • MIKE LINDELL, AND I THINK EVERYBODY IN THE
  • 00:09:11.180 --> 00:09:14.240
  • UNITED STATES KNOWS YOU AS THE MY PILLOW GUY, AND
  • 00:09:14.260 --> 00:09:19.110
  • SO WE ARE ALL FAMILIAR WITH YOUR MY PILLOWS,
  • 00:09:19.130 --> 00:09:23.260
  • LAURIE AND I HAVE ONE OF YOUR TOPPERS.
  • 00:09:23.280 --> 00:09:26.210
  • YOU SENT IT TO US.
  • 00:09:26.230 --> 00:09:28.030
  • THANK YOU.
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:29.130
  • - THANK YOU. LOVE IT.
  • 00:09:29.150 --> 00:09:30.200
  • - WE HAVE YOUR PILLOWS.
  • 00:09:30.220 --> 00:09:31.210
  • WE HAVE BOUGHT YOUR PILLOWS.
  • 00:09:31.230 --> 00:09:32.290
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW, AND WE WANT TO GET INTO THAT,
  • 00:09:33.010 --> 00:09:34.060
  • BUT WHAT WE'RE REALLY HEARING IS THAT YOU WERE
  • 00:09:34.080 --> 00:09:36.040
  • FOR SOME REASON A VERY INSECURE PERSON.
  • 00:09:36.060 --> 00:09:39.260
  • - SURVIVING ADDICTION.
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:42.180
  • - YOU WERE A FUNCTIONING ADDICT WORKING IN THE BAR
  • 00:09:42.200 --> 00:09:47.240
  • BUSINESS, SO YOU HAD ACCESS TO DRUGS.
  • 00:09:47.260 --> 00:09:51.260
  • WERE YOU AN ALCOHOLIC ALSO?
  • 00:09:51.280 --> 00:09:53.190
  • - OH, YEAH.
  • 00:09:53.210 --> 00:09:54.250
  • ALCOHOLIC.
  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:56.190
  • COCAINE WAS MY DRUG OF CHOICE.
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:09:58.120
  • AND I WAS SMOKING, BETTING SPORTS.
  • 00:09:58.140 --> 00:10:00.210
  • A FULL BLOWN ADDICT IN EVERY SENSE.
  • 00:10:00.230 --> 00:10:02.240
  • BUT IT ALL SWITCHED IN ABOUT 2000 WHEN CRACK
  • 00:10:02.260 --> 00:10:06.240
  • CAME IN.
  • 00:10:06.260 --> 00:10:08.050
  • CRACK IS NOT-- THERE'S COCAINE, AND THEN THERE'S
  • 00:10:08.070 --> 00:10:10.140
  • CRACK COCAINE, AND IT AFFECTS YOU DIFFERENT.
  • 00:10:10.160 --> 00:10:13.000
  • IT'S LIKE THE DEVIL'S CANDY THEY CALL IT.
  • 00:10:13.020 --> 00:10:14.100
  • BUT WHEN IT CAME TO OUR TOWN, AND IT'S NOT -IT'S
  • 00:10:14.120 --> 00:10:17.260
  • A VERY PARANOID DRUG SO YOU'RE LOOKING OUT
  • 00:10:17.280 --> 00:10:20.020
  • WINDOWS, AND EVERYTHING CHANGED THEN WHERE PEOPLE
  • 00:10:20.040 --> 00:10:24.120
  • THAT YOU KNEW THAT WERE ON CRACK THEY'RE NOT IN
  • 00:10:24.140 --> 00:10:26.080
  • THE BAR ANYMORE.
  • 00:10:26.100 --> 00:10:28.220
  • THEY'RE HOME HIDING, LOOKING OUT WINDOWS.
  • 00:10:28.240 --> 00:10:30.080
  • AND ANYBODY THAT'S ON CRACK KNOWS WHAT I'M
  • 00:10:30.100 --> 00:10:31.060
  • TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:10:31.080 --> 00:10:32.160
  • IT'S HORRIFIC THE PARANOIAS THAT GO WITH IT.
  • 00:10:32.180 --> 00:10:34.050
  • BUT BY A SERIES OF EVENTS I ENDED UP HAPPENING -- AT
  • 00:10:34.070 --> 00:10:36.120
  • THE TIME I THOUGHT IT WAS DEVASTATING THAT I HAD TO
  • 00:10:36.140 --> 00:10:38.120
  • SELL THE BAR, AND IT WAS LIKE WHEN I GOT FIRED AT
  • 00:10:38.140 --> 00:10:43.160
  • THE GROCERY STORE WAY BACK.
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:45.140
  • AT THE TIME OH, THIS IS THE END OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:10:45.160 --> 00:10:47.260
  • AND I LOOK BACK NOW AND WHAT A BLESSING.
  • 00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:49.250
  • IT WAS GOD'S PLAN.
  • 00:10:49.270 --> 00:10:51.230
  • AND WHEN I SOLD THAT, IT WAS THE END OF AN ERA.
  • 00:10:51.250 --> 00:10:54.130
  • IT WAS 13 YEARS, AND I TOOK MONEY.
  • 00:10:54.150 --> 00:10:57.050
  • I ENDED UP GOING TO CARD COUNTING, AND FOR THE
  • 00:10:57.070 --> 00:11:00.210
  • FIRST TIME I HAD A DEVIATION.
  • 00:11:00.230 --> 00:11:02.250
  • I LOST EVERYTHING.
  • 00:11:02.270 --> 00:11:04.240
  • AND THEN THE SPRING OF I BELIEVE IT WAS 1984 I
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:08.230
  • HAD THIS DREAM AND THAT WAS THE PILLOW.
  • 00:11:08.250 --> 00:11:12.170
  • - A CARPET CLEANER, A FARM HAND, A CARD COUNTER,
  • 00:11:12.190 --> 00:11:15.180
  • A LUNCH WAGON, BAR, AND RESTAURANT OWNER.
  • 00:11:15.200 --> 00:11:19.010
  • WHAT DO THEY ALL HAVE IN COMMON?
  • 00:11:19.030 --> 00:11:21.030
  • MIKE LINDELL.
  • 00:11:21.050 --> 00:11:22.280
  • HE'S TRIED A MYRIAD OF BUSINESSES NONE OF WHICH
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:25.020
  • AMOUNTED TO MUCH CONSIDERED HE FUNNELED
  • 00:11:25.040 --> 00:11:26.290
  • WHAT LITTLE HE MADE TO HIS $500 TO $1.000 A WEEK
  • 00:11:27.010 --> 00:11:28.260
  • COCAINE HABIT.
  • 00:11:28.280 --> 00:11:32.110
  • HOW DID MIKE LINDELL GO FROM THIS TO THIS?
  • 00:11:32.130 --> 00:11:35.270
  • - HELLO.
  • 00:11:35.290 --> 00:11:37.020
  • I'M MIKE LINDELL, INVENTOR OF THE WORLD'S
  • 00:11:37.040 --> 00:11:38.050
  • MOST COMFORTABLE PILLOW.
  • 00:11:38.070 --> 00:11:39.070
  • MY PILLOW.
  • 00:11:39.090 --> 00:11:40.150
  • - MIKE WILL TELL YOU IT WAS NOTHING SHORT OF
  • 00:11:40.170 --> 00:11:41.270
  • A MIRACLE.
  • 00:11:41.290 --> 00:11:43.040
  • IT ALL STARTED WHEN A SLEEP DEPRIVED MINNESOTA
  • 00:11:43.060 --> 00:11:45.180
  • NATIVE HAD A DREAM.
  • 00:11:45.200 --> 00:11:47.240
  • - WHEN I GOT UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, IT
  • 00:11:47.260 --> 00:11:50.060
  • WAS ABOUT 2 IN THE MORNING AND I HAD MY
  • 00:11:50.080 --> 00:11:53.140
  • PILLOW, WROTE EVERYWHERE IN THE KITCHEN AND ALL
  • 00:11:53.160 --> 00:11:56.070
  • OVER THE HOUSE MUCH MY DAUGHTER, ONE OF MY
  • 00:11:56.090 --> 00:11:58.250
  • DAUGHTERS AT THE TIME, SHE CAME DOWNSTAIRS.
  • 00:11:58.270 --> 00:12:00.190
  • SHE LOOKED AROUND, SHE GOES WHAT ARE YOU
  • 00:12:00.210 --> 00:12:03.190
  • DOING, DAD?
  • 00:12:03.210 --> 00:12:05.030
  • I SAID, I'VE GOT THIS IDEA FOR THIS PILLOW.
  • 00:12:05.050 --> 00:12:06.120
  • IT'S GOING TO BE CALLED MY PILLOW.
  • 00:12:06.140 --> 00:12:07.230
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT?
  • 00:12:07.250 --> 00:12:08.290
  • AND SHE LOOKS AT ME, SHE GOES, THAT'S
  • 00:12:09.010 --> 00:12:10.020
  • REALLY RANDOM.
  • 00:12:10.040 --> 00:12:11.070
  • SHE WENT BACK DOWNSTAIRS.
  • 00:12:11.090 --> 00:12:12.190
  • - NEVERTHELESS MIKE KNEW HE WAS ONTO SOMETHING.
  • 00:12:12.210 --> 00:12:14.140
  • AFTER A YEAR OF TESTING, HE FOUND THE FORMULA THAT
  • 00:12:14.160 --> 00:12:16.020
  • RESULTED IN THIS PILLOW.
  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:17.240
  • BUT IT WAS NO EASY SELL.
  • 00:12:17.260 --> 00:12:19.260
  • STORES WEREN'T INTERESTED.
  • 00:12:19.280 --> 00:12:21.170
  • - I WALKED INTO A BOX STORE.
  • 00:12:21.190 --> 00:12:23.100
  • I SAID, HOW MANY PILLOWS -I WAS THE BEST PILLOW
  • 00:12:23.120 --> 00:12:24.260
  • EVER MADE.
  • 00:12:24.280 --> 00:12:26.020
  • HOW MANY WOULD YOU LIKE?
  • 00:12:26.040 --> 00:12:27.090
  • AND I'M ALL EXCITED.
  • 00:12:27.110 --> 00:12:28.230
  • AND THE GUY LITERALLY LOOKED AT ME AND GOES, I
  • 00:12:28.250 --> 00:12:30.090
  • WANT TO SEE YOUR BUYER, AND HE GOES,S YOU NEED
  • 00:12:30.110 --> 00:12:31.140
  • TO LEAVE.
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:32.290
  • - SO MIKE ULTIMATELY PITCHED THE PILLOW ON AN
  • 00:12:33.010 --> 00:12:34.200
  • INFOMERCIAL, AND SALES TOOK OFF.
  • 00:12:34.220 --> 00:12:37.080
  • IN 40 DAYS, MIKE INCREASED HIS WORK
  • 00:12:37.100 --> 00:12:39.190
  • FORCE FROM 5 TO 500 JUST TO KEEP UP.
  • 00:12:39.210 --> 00:12:42.200
  • BUT THEN THERE WAS THE ISSUE OF THE DRUGS.
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:45.190
  • MIKE KNEW THERE WAS A BETTER WAY, SO HE WENT TO
  • 00:12:45.210 --> 00:12:48.060
  • BED AND PRAYED TO GOD TO TAKE HIS DESIRE FOR
  • 00:12:48.080 --> 00:12:50.190
  • DRUGS AWAY.
  • 00:12:50.210 --> 00:12:52.200
  • THE NEXT MORNING, HIS CRAVING WAS GONE FOR GOOD.
  • 00:12:52.220 --> 00:12:55.090

  • - MIKE LINDELL, MY PILLOW, TAKE ONE.
  • 00:13:09.290 --> 00:13:11.190
  • I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO THAT.

  • - THE STORY STARTS IN 2004.
  • 00:13:23.000 --> 00:13:25.260
  • I HAD A DREAM FROM GOD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

  • ABOUT THE NAME MY PILLOW, AND I WROTE IT ALL OVER
  • 00:13:28.290 --> 00:13:31.150

  • 00:20:21.230 --> 00:20:24.220
  • I DID SHOWS AND FAIRS FOR YEARS THEN, AND
  • 00:20:24.240 --> 00:20:29.250
  • EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED WE DON'T EVEN HAVE TIME,
  • 00:20:29.270 --> 00:20:32.260
  • ALL THE BETRAYAL.
  • 00:20:32.280 --> 00:20:34.140
  • PEOPLE WOULD COME IN TRY AND TAKE MY COMPANY,
  • 00:20:34.160 --> 00:20:36.150
  • THEY WOULD TRY TO TAKE WHAT LITTLE WE HAD,
  • 00:20:36.170 --> 00:20:38.190
  • TAKE THE MANUFACTURING.
  • 00:20:38.210 --> 00:20:41.110
  • IT WAS LIKE YOU'D BRING SOMEONE IN AND THEY'RE
  • 00:20:41.130 --> 00:20:43.230
  • FIGURING OUT YOU CAN JUST-- AT ONE TIME I WAS
  • 00:20:43.250 --> 00:20:45.260
  • AT GUNPOINT IN MILWAUKEE, AND I HAD EVERYTHING OUT,
  • 00:20:45.280 --> 00:20:51.170
  • MY WEDDING RING, MY TRUCK, SMOKING CRACK OR
  • 00:20:51.190 --> 00:20:56.130
  • WHATEVER THIS GUY, HE'S GOT ME AT GUNPOINT HELD
  • 00:20:56.150 --> 00:20:59.030
  • CAPTIVE, AND THE NEXT DAY I HAD TO COMPLETELY GET
  • 00:20:59.050 --> 00:21:03.160
  • OUT OF ALL OF THAT, AND THE NEXT MORNING BY THE
  • 00:21:03.180 --> 00:21:05.100
  • TIME I GOT MYSELF STRAIGHT TO FUNCTION
  • 00:21:05.120 --> 00:21:07.070
  • WHERE I CAN REWIND THE TAPE, SO TO SPEAK,
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:09.070
  • I GOT EVERYTHING BACK.
  • 00:21:09.090 --> 00:21:10.270
  • THE VERY NEXT DAY IN MINNEAPOLIS, I WAS AT
  • 00:21:10.290 --> 00:21:13.020
  • THIS RESTAURANT EATING WITH THREE OF THESE
  • 00:21:13.040 --> 00:21:14.280
  • MILLIONAIRE GUYS, AND ALL OF THEM PULLED ME AWAY
  • 00:21:15.000 --> 00:21:17.280
  • FROM THE TABLE AND SAID WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T
  • 00:21:18.000 --> 00:21:19.170
  • TELL THEM YOU DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY. I GO OKAY.
  • 00:21:19.190 --> 00:21:21.220
  • BUT ALL THREE SAID THE SAME THING.
  • 00:21:21.240 --> 00:21:23.160
  • I GO I THINK I FELT SAFER YESTERDAY IN THAT.
  • 00:21:23.180 --> 00:21:26.120
  • I FELT EVIL BOTH PLACES. IT WAS SO BAD.
  • 00:21:26.140 --> 00:21:29.190
  • EVERYBODY WAS AFTER ME.
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:31.160
  • AND THEN I ENDED UP LOSING A 20 YEAR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:21:31.180 --> 00:21:36.130
  • THESE GUYS WERE TAKING THE COMPANY, AND LIGHTS
  • 00:21:36.150 --> 00:21:38.260
  • WENT OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
  • 00:21:38.280 --> 00:21:40.010
  • THIS IS MAY OF 2007.
  • 00:21:40.030 --> 00:21:44.080
  • THE LIGHTS WENT OUT SAME DAY. SHE COULDN'T TAKE ANYMORE.
  • 00:21:44.100 --> 00:21:47.050
  • WE WERE LABELING PILLOWS IN OUR LIVING ROOM. LABELING.
  • 00:21:47.070 --> 00:21:51.050
  • AND THE KIDS, I REMEMBER MY DAUGHTER SAYS DAD,
  • 00:21:51.070 --> 00:21:54.110
  • WE'RE A DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY.
  • 00:21:54.130 --> 00:21:55.230
  • I SAID DON'T YOU EVER SAY THAT!
  • 00:21:55.250 --> 00:21:57.090
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:21:57.110 --> 00:21:58.260
  • AND WE HAD JUST KIND OF EVERYTHING HAD FELL
  • 00:21:58.280 --> 00:22:00.140
  • APART, AND PEOPLE HAD TAKEN EVERYTHING. THEN MY
  • 00:22:00.160 --> 00:22:03.150
  • PILLOW THE WHOLE TIME IS LIKE A LITTLE HEARTBEAT.
  • 00:22:03.170 --> 00:22:07.050
  • - EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE YOU'D SEE SOMETHING JUMP UP.
  • 00:22:07.070 --> 00:22:10.040
  • - BUT I NEVER BROKE TRUST WITH THE SHOW.
  • 00:22:10.060 --> 00:22:11.260
  • IF I DID A SHOW, I WAS THERE ON TIME.
  • 00:22:11.280 --> 00:22:14.180
  • I NEVER BROKE TRUST AND THAT'S VERY KEY TO MY STORY.
  • 00:22:14.200 --> 00:22:18.010
  • IT WAS 2008, AND HERE IT WAS LIKE FEBRUARY
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:23.260
  • I BELIEVE, AND I HAD DONE A LITTLE THING ON A PUBLIC
  • 00:22:23.280 --> 00:22:26.200
  • ACCESS TV CHANNEL, AND I HAD FOUR CALLS THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:22:26.220 --> 00:22:30.040
  • AND I WAS ALL BY MYSELF. I'M LOSING ONE HOUSE AND THEN
  • 00:22:30.060 --> 00:22:34.000
  • LIVING IN THIS FARM PLACE BY MYSELF.
  • 00:22:34.020 --> 00:22:37.100
  • AND MY PHONE RINGS ABOUT 8:00 O'CLOCK AND THIS
  • 00:22:37.120 --> 00:22:39.130
  • LADY SAYS ARE YOU THE GUY I SEEN ON CHANNEL 6?
  • 00:22:39.150 --> 00:22:42.050
  • I SAID YEAH. SHE SAYS WELL, SHE SAID I'M NOT BUYING
  • 00:22:42.070 --> 00:22:46.100
  • A PILLOW BUT SHE SAYS I'M GONNA PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:22:46.120 --> 00:22:48.220
  • GOD TOLD ME THAT IT'S VERY IMPORTANT WHAT
  • 00:22:48.240 --> 00:22:51.120
  • YOU'RE DOING FOR HIM, AND YOU CAN'T EVER GIVE UP.
  • 00:22:51.140 --> 00:22:54.130
  • SO SHE WAS PRAYING, AND I'M STILL DOING MY DRUGS,
  • 00:22:54.150 --> 00:22:57.070
  • AND SHE PRAYS FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES AND SHE HANGS

  • COMPUTER. TWO HOURS LATER ANOTHER LADY CALLS.
  • 00:23:03.150 --> 00:23:06.200
  • THIS NEVER HAPPENED IN HISTORY.
  • 00:23:06.220 --> 00:23:08.040
  • I USUALLY GOT ONE CALL A WEEK TO LOOK AT A PILLOW.
  • 00:23:08.060 --> 00:23:11.010
  • AND SHE SAYS YEAH, I RECOGNIZE YOUR VOICE,
  • 00:23:11.030 --> 00:23:15.020
  • I SEEN YOU ON THAT CHANNEL 6.
  • 00:23:15.040 --> 00:23:16.130
  • SHE SAYS GOD TOLD ME TO CALL YOU UP AND TELL YOU
  • 00:23:16.150 --> 00:23:19.240
  • WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS SO IMPORTANT,
  • 00:23:19.260 --> 00:23:21.150
  • IT'S A PLATFORM FOR SOMETHING SO BIG.
  • 00:23:21.170 --> 00:23:23.260
  • SHE SAID DON'T YOU EVER GIVE UP.
  • 00:23:23.280 --> 00:23:25.160
  • - LAURIE: I HAVE CHILLS.
  • 00:23:25.180 --> 00:23:27.030
  • - AND SHE PRAYED FOR 45 MINUTES.
  • 00:23:27.050 --> 00:23:30.030
  • I HAD TO PUT HER ON MUTE SO I COULD DO MY DRUGS.
  • 00:23:30.050 --> 00:23:32.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:23:32.260 --> 00:23:35.160
  • - HERE, YOU PRAY FOR A MINUTE. GIVE ME A SECOND.
  • 00:23:35.180 --> 00:23:39.010
  • - AND HERE NOW, ABOUT 3:00 IN THE MORNING, I'LL

  • ON CHANNEL 6? I GO YEAH.
  • 00:23:47.080 --> 00:23:49.220
  • HE SAYS WELL, I DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD, BUT HE
  • 00:23:49.240 --> 00:23:52.100
  • SAYS I KEEP HAVING THIS DREAM I'M SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:23:52.120 --> 00:23:54.090
  • CALL YOU UP AND TELL YOU WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS
  • 00:23:54.110 --> 00:23:56.110
  • IMPORTANT TO GOD. I HOPE MY DREAMS STOP NOW!
  • 00:23:56.130 --> 00:23:58.130
  • AND HE SLAMMED THE PHONE DOWN.
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:23:59.270
  • - OH, MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:23:59.290 --> 00:24:01.210

  • YOU WANT TO PRAY. SHE GOES HOW DID YOU KNOW?
  • 00:24:09.210 --> 00:24:11.020
  • IT SEEMS TO BE THE THING TO WANT.
  • 00:24:11.040 --> 00:24:12.190
  • SO SHE PRAYS FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES.
  • 00:24:12.210 --> 00:24:14.260
  • NOW THAT STARTED, I WOULD ALWAYS STAY UP UNTIL
  • 00:24:14.280 --> 00:24:17.270
  • I TRIED TO GET SOMETHING SOLVED.
  • 00:24:17.290 --> 00:24:19.140
  • WELL FOR 14 DAYS I WAS UP WITH NO SLEEP.
  • 00:24:19.160 --> 00:24:22.200
  • I'M DOWNTOWN MINNEAPOLIS, AND THERE IN ONE OF THE

  • SMOKING MY CRACK, AND HERE I COME OUT OF THE
  • 00:24:29.230 --> 00:24:32.060
  • ROOM, AND THERE'S THREE OF THE BIG, MY DEALERS,

  • AND THEY CONTROL ALL THESE OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:24:35.040 --> 00:24:37.060
  • AND THEY GO, IT'S LIKE AN INTERVENTION. I GO

  • WHAT ARE YOU DOING? THEY GO YOU'RE GOING TO BED.
  • 00:24:39.100 --> 00:24:40.280
  • YOU'VE BEEN UP 14 DAYS.
  • 00:24:41.000 --> 00:24:42.090
  • HE TELLS THE OTHER GUYS, HE'S BEEN UP 14 DAYS,
  • 00:24:42.110 --> 00:24:44.230
  • NONE OF YOUR GUYS ARE SELLING.
  • 00:24:44.250 --> 00:24:46.170
  • AND I'M NOT ARGUING BECAUSE I KNOW.
  • 00:24:46.190 --> 00:24:50.040
  • SO THE ONE GUY GOES, WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU,
  • 00:24:50.060 --> 00:24:52.240
  • AND HE LEAVES. THE OTHER GUY TOOK OFF.
  • 00:24:52.260 --> 00:24:54.240
  • IT WAS HIS HOUSE. KICKS HIM OUT.
  • 00:24:54.260 --> 00:24:56.190
  • HE SAYS HOW MUCH YOU GOT LEFT?
  • 00:24:56.210 --> 00:24:57.280
  • I HAD A COUPLE CRACK ROCKS LEFT.
  • 00:24:58.000 --> 00:24:59.140
  • I SMOKE THEM AND I WAITED.
  • 00:24:59.160 --> 00:25:01.200
  • HE FINALLY WENT TO SLEEP, AND I HEADED DOWN TO THE
  • 00:25:01.220 --> 00:25:05.090
  • STREETS, AND I COULD NOT BUY CRACK ANYWHERE.
  • 00:25:05.110 --> 00:25:08.010
  • I WENT OUT--
  • 00:25:08.030 --> 00:25:09.100
  • - LET ME MAKE SURE I UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:25:09.120 --> 00:25:11.120
  • YOUR DRUG DEALERS CARED ABOUT YOU ENOUGH
  • 00:25:11.140 --> 00:25:15.170
  • TO DO AN INTERVENTION?
  • 00:25:15.190 --> 00:25:16.290
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:25:17.010 --> 00:25:18.050
  • - WHY DID THEY WANT YOU TO MAKE IT?
  • 00:25:18.070 --> 00:25:19.270
  • - HERE'S WHERE IT COMES RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:25:19.290 --> 00:25:21.160
  • I GET BACK UP AFTER-- I'M NOT-- I'M VERY RESOURCEFUL.
  • 00:25:21.180 --> 00:25:24.090
  • I WENT OUT IN A RING.
  • 00:25:24.110 --> 00:25:25.280
  • I WENT IN PLACES I'D NEVER BEEN.
  • 00:25:26.000 --> 00:25:27.160
  • I'M OFFERING PROBABLY OFFERING TOO MUCH MONEY
  • 00:25:27.180 --> 00:25:30.020
  • FOR CRACK. THEY'RE GOING WHAT'S UP? THIS IS WEIRD.
  • 00:25:30.040 --> 00:25:32.180

  • GOES HOW DID THAT WORK OUT FOR YOU? I'M SO MAD.
  • 00:25:34.190 --> 00:25:37.100
  • AND HE GOES GIVE ME THAT PHONE OF YOURS.
  • 00:25:37.120 --> 00:25:40.020
  • HE SAYS I'M GONNA TAKE A PICTURE.

  • AND YOU'RE GONNA COME BACK AND HELP US ALL OUT
  • 00:25:47.190 --> 00:25:49.000
  • OF THIS ADDICTION.
  • 00:25:49.020 --> 00:25:50.090
  • AND HE GOES WE'RE NOT GONNA LET YOU DIE ON US.
  • 00:25:50.110 --> 00:25:52.040
  • AND HE WAS SHOOING ME OUT BECAUSE I WOULD TELL HIM
  • 00:25:52.060 --> 00:25:54.010
  • ALL THE TIME SOME DAY I'M GONNA QUIT.
  • 00:25:54.030 --> 00:25:55.290
  • AND I SAID I HAD SO MANY OF MY OTHER FRIENDS QUIT
  • 00:25:56.010 --> 00:25:58.240
  • JUST ME TALKING TO THEM.
  • 00:25:58.260 --> 00:26:00.110
  • I SAID I'M GONNA COME BACK AND HELP YOU.
  • 00:26:00.130 --> 00:26:02.060
  • TO FAST FORWARD ON JANUARY 16, 2009, I MADE
  • 00:26:02.080 --> 00:26:06.130
  • A DEAL WITH GOD. I SAID OKAY GOD, HERE'S THE DEAL.
  • 00:26:06.150 --> 00:26:09.250
  • THIS ISN'T WHEN I SURRENDERED.
  • 00:26:09.270 --> 00:26:11.120
  • I WANT EVERYBODY TO KNOW THAT.
  • 00:26:11.140 --> 00:26:12.250
  • I SAID GOD, HERE'S THE DEAL.
  • 00:26:12.270 --> 00:26:15.030
  • I SAID THIS PLATFORM THING YOU'VE GOT GOING
  • 00:26:15.050 --> 00:26:17.110
  • ON, AND I SAID BECAUSE IF FELT HORRIBLE.
  • 00:26:17.130 --> 00:26:19.090
  • I'M NOT GONNA HAVE MY DRUGS AND THE WEIGHT OF
  • 00:26:19.110 --> 00:26:20.280
  • THE WORLD IS ON ME. THAT'S THE WAY I FELT.
  • 00:26:21.000 --> 00:26:22.230
  • I GO I HAVE MY OWN PAIN.
  • 00:26:22.250 --> 00:26:24.110
  • AND I SAID I WANT TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AND
  • 00:26:24.130 --> 00:26:26.190
  • NEVER HAVE THE DESIRE AGAIN, THEN I'LL DO
  • 00:26:26.210 --> 00:26:28.110
  • THIS PLATFORM THING.
  • 00:26:28.130 --> 00:26:29.290
  • AND AT THAT MOMENT IN TIME THEY SAID IS WHAT
  • 00:26:30.010 --> 00:26:31.170
  • YOUR LOWEST POINT? WAS THAT YOUR BOTTOM?
  • 00:26:31.190 --> 00:26:33.270
  • I SAID FOR ME, IT WAS LIKE THE OLD BLACK AND
  • 00:26:33.290 --> 00:26:36.030
  • WHITE TV THAT WENT DOWN TO THAT LITTLE DOT AND
  • 00:26:36.050 --> 00:26:38.110
  • YOU TURN IT BACK ON AND IT COMES BACK TO LIFE.
  • 00:26:38.130 --> 00:26:40.120
  • BUT WHEN I DID THAT, MY CALLING WASN'T GONNA BE
  • 00:26:40.140 --> 00:26:43.280
  • GONE-- WAS GONNA BE GONE.
  • 00:26:44.000 --> 00:26:45.240
  • SOMEBODY ELSE WAS GONNA BE CHOSEN.
  • 00:26:45.260 --> 00:26:47.080
  • THAT CALLING WAS GONNA BE GONE FOREVER AND I KNEW THAT.
  • 00:26:47.100 --> 00:26:50.070
  • I KNEW THAT. I MADE SURE I DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY LEFT.
  • 00:26:50.090 --> 00:26:54.020
  • NOTHING WAS LEFT. EVERYTHING WAS TAKEN.
  • 00:26:54.040 --> 00:26:55.280
  • - SO YOU FELT LIKE THAT MOMENT WAS WHETHER OR NOT
  • 00:26:56.000 --> 00:26:58.140
  • YOU WERE GONNA ACCOMPLISH THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:26:58.160 --> 00:27:01.070
  • GOD CREATED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:27:01.090 --> 00:27:02.190
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:27:02.210 --> 00:27:04.020
  • - OR THEY WERE GONNA BE TRANSFERRED TO SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:27:04.040 --> 00:27:05.070
  • - OR GONE FOREVER.
  • 00:27:05.090 --> 00:27:06.160
  • THAT WINDOW OF TIME WOULD BE GONE FOREVER.
  • 00:27:06.180 --> 00:27:08.210
  • AND I KNEW THAT ONE HUNDRED PERCENT.
  • 00:27:08.230 --> 00:27:11.120
  • AND NOW, I WOKE UP THE NEXT DAY AND IT WAS A
  • 00:27:11.140 --> 00:27:15.230
  • PEACE. THEY WERE GONE. I NEVER LOOKED BACK.
  • 00:27:15.250 --> 00:27:18.250
  • - HERE WE GO.
  • 00:27:18.270 --> 00:27:19.290
  • - HOW YOU DOING?
  • 00:27:20.010 --> 00:27:21.010
  • - I'M DOING GOOD.
  • 00:27:21.030 --> 00:27:23.080
  • - SO JUST THROW IT IN THERE? CAN I DO THIS?
  • 00:27:25.080 --> 00:27:28.040
  • OKAY.
  • 00:27:28.060 --> 00:27:30.010

  • THESE MIXERS, THESE BLUE MIXERS. ALL THREE SIZES.
  • 00:27:56.200 --> 00:28:00.250
  • ALL THREE SIZES ARE MIXED TOGETHER IN HERE.
  • 00:28:00.270 --> 00:28:04.010
  • IT'S LIKE BUTTER.
  • 00:28:04.030 --> 00:28:05.130
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE TOO MUCH OR TOO LITTLE IN ONE PLACE.
  • 00:28:05.150 --> 00:28:08.180
  • IT DOESN'T CORK.
  • 00:28:08.200 --> 00:28:10.080
  • - MATT: SO WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS YOUR KEY TO SELLING
  • 00:28:10.100 --> 00:28:14.170
  • 44 MILLION PILLOWS IS THAT THIS FOAM GETS

  • SHOULDERS AND NECKS ARE ALL DIFFERENT SIZES.
  • 00:28:35.000 --> 00:28:36.270
  • SLEEP IS ABOUT THE DISTANCE FROM YOUR HEAD
  • 00:28:36.290 --> 00:28:39.050
  • TO YOUR BED, AND IF A BED IS TOO HIGH OR TOO LOW,
  • 00:28:39.070 --> 00:28:43.070
  • YOU DON'T GET GOOD SLEEP.
  • 00:28:43.090 --> 00:28:45.010
  • DOWN PILLOWS ARE NOTORIOUS.
  • 00:28:45.030 --> 00:28:47.060
  • YOU PUFF A DOWN PILLOW, "OH, I FEEL COMFORTABLE".
  • 00:28:47.080 --> 00:28:49.230
  • - WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT HERE?
  • 00:28:49.250 --> 00:28:53.260

  • GUYS THAT ARE PUTTING THAT ON THERE RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:29:04.160 --> 00:29:06.260

  • WE USED TO JUST DO IT BY HAND, FILL THESE UP RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:29:12.140 --> 00:29:16.270
  • TAKE A PILLOW.
  • 00:29:16.290 --> 00:29:20.060
  • IT WOULD TAKE A PILLOW AND FILL THESE UP BY HAND
  • 00:29:21.190 --> 00:29:24.140
  • IN A BIN, ONE SCOOP,
  • 00:29:24.160 --> 00:29:28.090
  • YOU WOULD BE COVERED IN FOAM.
  • 00:29:28.110 --> 00:29:29.280
  • - FROM YOUR DREAM TO STANDING HERE TODAY,
  • 00:29:30.000 --> 00:29:33.000
  • HOW MANY YEARS?
  • 00:29:33.020 --> 00:29:34.270
  • - IT WOULD BE ABOUT.
  • 00:29:34.290 --> 00:29:37.180
  • - FIFTEEN?
  • 00:29:37.200 --> 00:29:38.220
  • - ABOUT FIFTEEN YEARS, BUT WE DIDN'T GET
  • 00:29:38.240 --> 00:29:41.170
  • PICKED UNTIL 2011.
  • 00:29:41.190 --> 00:29:43.100
  • PRIOR TO 2011, THAT FIRST INFOMERCIAL, I SOLD
  • 00:29:43.120 --> 00:29:47.150
  • MAYBE, I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE 10-20.000 PILLOWS.
  • 00:29:47.170 --> 00:29:54.130
  • AND 2011 EXPLODED BECAUSE NOBODY WOULD TAKE ME.
  • 00:29:54.150 --> 00:29:57.000
  • I TOOK IT RIGHT TO THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:29:57.020 --> 00:29:58.200
  • - I LIKE THIS ACTION HERE BUT LET ME ASK YOU
  • 00:29:58.220 --> 00:30:02.030

  • 00:30:11.040 --> 00:30:13.240
  • WE WOULD FILL THEM BY HAND ONE HANDFUL AT A
  • 00:30:13.260 --> 00:30:16.240
  • TIME. WE WOULD SEW THEM SHUT.
  • 00:30:16.260 --> 00:30:19.090
  • WE WOULD QUALITY THEM, MAKE SURE THERE'S NOT A
  • 00:30:19.110 --> 00:30:21.060
  • THREAD OUT. MAKE SURE THEY'RE IDENTICAL.
  • 00:30:21.080 --> 00:30:23.030
  • WE WOULD ROLL THEM UP FOR SHIPPING.
  • 00:30:23.050 --> 00:30:25.030
  • PUT THEM IN A THING, IN A BAG.
  • 00:30:25.050 --> 00:30:27.150

  • GET SEWN DOWN THE LINE HERE, THIS IS REALLY A
  • 00:30:31.060 --> 00:30:35.110
  • MIRACLE. IT STARTED WITH A DREAM.
  • 00:30:35.130 --> 00:30:37.140
  • YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE RIGHT HERE BEHIND THIS
  • 00:30:37.160 --> 00:30:40.160
  • LENS, MIKE. THEY HAVE SOMETHING THEY'VE DREAMED.
  • 00:30:40.180 --> 00:30:44.130
  • THEY HAVE SOMETHING THEY WANT TO DO,
  • 00:30:44.150 --> 00:30:47.190
  • THEY WANT TO ACCOMPLISH.
  • 00:30:47.210 --> 00:30:49.140
  • I THINK STANDING HERE AT THIS PART, YOU COULD LOOK
  • 00:30:49.160 --> 00:30:52.150

  • AND I HAD FELL AWAY FROM GOD.
  • 00:35:04.100 --> 00:35:05.200

  • SHE SAID, MIKE, YOU NEED TO BE IN THAT COMMERCIAL.
  • 00:35:20.080 --> 00:35:22.100
  • I SAID I DON'T WANT TO BE IN IT.
  • 00:35:22.120 --> 00:35:23.260
  • I JUST DIDN'T FEEL IT.
  • 00:35:23.280 --> 00:35:25.180
  • SO THEY PUT ME IN THERE AND IT EXPLODED AGAIN IN '14.
  • 00:35:25.200 --> 00:35:30.050

  • - IN '15, THINGS STARTED HAPPENING TO ME.
  • 00:35:46.100 --> 00:35:49.070
  • MY WRITER WAS WRITING MY BOOK, AND WE HAD ALL
  • 00:35:49.090 --> 00:35:51.030
  • THESE EPISODES LAID OUT ON MY TABLE IN 2015,
  • 00:35:51.050 --> 00:35:54.090
  • AND I SAID I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO LEAVE IN,
  • 00:35:54.110 --> 00:35:56.110
  • WHAT TO LEAVE OUT. HE GRABBED AN EPISODE,
  • 00:35:56.130 --> 00:35:58.190
  • HE GOES JUST PICK THIS ONE. 1987 JANUARY.
  • 00:35:58.210 --> 00:36:01.240
  • HE GOES ANYBODY WITH THIS THING RIGHT HERE WOULD
  • 00:36:01.260 --> 00:36:04.220
  • SURRENDER ON THE SPOT.
  • 00:36:04.240 --> 00:36:07.030
  • HE SAID MAYBE THIS IS ALL HAPPENING FOR YOU, MIKE,
  • 00:36:07.050 --> 00:36:09.200
  • SO THAT YOU CAN-- GOD'S CHASING YOU.
  • 00:36:09.220 --> 00:36:12.010
  • I'LL NEVER FORGET WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:36:12.030 --> 00:36:13.210
  • WELL THEN THINGS STARTED HAPPENING.
  • 00:36:13.230 --> 00:36:15.140

  • I HAD TO LEARN IT. I'M GOING, I HAD NO IDEA.
  • 00:36:33.110 --> 00:36:36.280
  • I'VE BEEN A CRACK ADDICT. SO TO FAST FORWARD,
  • 00:36:37.000 --> 00:36:40.230
  • I END UP AT THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION.

  • I SAID, I WAS WITH THE GAL, KENDRA, NOW FOR FOUR
  • 00:37:43.060 --> 00:37:45.100
  • YEARS, AND SHE SAYS, YOU DON'T HAVE A
  • 00:37:45.120 --> 00:37:47.220
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.
  • 00:37:47.240 --> 00:37:49.120
  • YOU HAVEN'T FULLY SURRENDERED, MIKE.
  • 00:37:49.140 --> 00:37:51.030

  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:38:06.150 --> 00:38:08.050
  • BUT I WENT INTO THIS WITH HIGH HOPE, AND IT WAS THE
  • 00:38:08.070 --> 00:38:13.260
  • SECOND DAY, IN FEBRUARY 18TH, 2017, I DID A FULL
  • 00:38:13.280 --> 00:38:17.290
  • SURRENDER TO JESUS CHRIST, AND I TELL YOU WHAT.
  • 00:38:18.010 --> 00:38:22.040

  • I'M LEADING THEM IN PRAYER.
  • 00:38:35.080 --> 00:38:36.250
  • - AND THEY WILL PRAY TO YOU, LORD, AND ASK YOU
  • 00:38:36.270 --> 00:38:39.240
  • INTO THEIR HEARTS AND SURRENDER,
  • 00:38:39.260 --> 00:38:41.210
  • SURRENDER TO YOU, JESUS.
  • 00:38:41.230 --> 00:38:43.270
  • AND WE PRAY FOR THE ADDICTS, ANYBODY ADDICTED

  • 00:38:59.160 --> 00:39:01.000
  • PLEASE FORGIVE OUR SINS, LORD.
  • 00:39:01.020 --> 00:39:02.210
  • FORGIVE US AND LISTEN TO OUR PRAYERS TONIGHT.
  • 00:39:02.230 --> 00:39:06.020
  • IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.
  • 00:39:06.040 --> 00:39:08.220
  • - AND ALL GOD'S PEOPLE SAID...
  • 00:39:08.240 --> 00:39:10.070
  • - HEY!
  • 00:39:10.090 --> 00:39:14.000
  • - WHAT WAS THAT ENCOUNTER?
  • 00:39:14.020 --> 00:39:16.200
  • WHAT WERE YOU MISSING ALL OF THOSE YEARS?
  • 00:39:16.220 --> 00:39:18.270
  • WHAT HADN'T YOU DONE?
  • 00:39:18.290 --> 00:39:20.260
  • - I JUST FELT -- IT WAS LIKE SHOW ME MORE.
  • 00:39:20.280 --> 00:39:24.290
  • I KEPT SAYING SHOW ME MORE.
  • 00:39:25.010 --> 00:39:26.150
  • THEN HE SHOWED UP, AND IT WAS LIKE HE WAS
  • 00:39:26.170 --> 00:39:28.070
  • RIGHT THERE WITH ME.
  • 00:39:28.090 --> 00:39:29.250
  • WE WENT BACK, WE BROUGHT ME BACK, WE BROUGHT BACK
  • 00:39:29.270 --> 00:39:31.160
  • TO MEMORIES, SOME CHILDHOOD MEMORIES THAT
  • 00:39:31.180 --> 00:39:33.040
  • WERE DEEP DOWN, AND JESUS WAS RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:39:33.060 --> 00:39:35.090
  • AND THOSE WERE THINGS -- WE DID THAT, AND ALL OF
  • 00:39:35.110 --> 00:39:39.020
  • THE SUDDEN HE WAS RIGHT THERE, AND IT WAS LIKE.
  • 00:39:39.040 --> 00:39:41.180
  • AND NOW TO BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:39:41.200 --> 00:39:43.070
  • I'LL TELL YOU THE DIFFERENCE FOR ME.
  • 00:39:43.090 --> 00:39:46.080
  • I CAN BE PROACTIVE IN PRAYER INSTEAD OF BEING
  • 00:39:46.100 --> 00:39:49.110
  • REACTIVE, AND PEOPLE ALWAYS SAY TO ME, THEY GO
  • 00:39:49.130 --> 00:39:53.080
  • -- I TELL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, AND THEY GO WELL,
  • 00:39:53.100 --> 00:39:55.090
  • I PRAY FOR THIS AND PRAY FOR THAT.
  • 00:39:55.110 --> 00:39:56.210
  • WELL, IT MIGHT NOT BE GOD'S WILL.
  • 00:39:56.230 --> 00:39:58.210
  • AND I SAY GOD'S WILL IS IN THE WORD.
  • 00:39:58.230 --> 00:40:01.140
  • SO YOU GO TO THE WORD AND SEE IF IT'S GOD'S WILL.
  • 00:40:01.160 --> 00:40:04.080
  • YOU'RE PRAYING FOR SOMETHING, YOU MIGHT BE
  • 00:40:04.100 --> 00:40:06.040
  • PRAYING FOR SOMETHING THAT ISN'T GOD'S WILL.
  • 00:40:06.060 --> 00:40:07.260
  • SO FOR ME, IT WAS LIKE IT JUST WHOOSH.
  • 00:40:07.280 --> 00:40:10.250
  • BUT IT WASN'T LIKE -- HE WAS ALWAYS RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:40:10.270 --> 00:40:15.030
  • HE'D GET THERE, HE'D BE WITH ME, AND I'M GOING,
  • 00:40:15.050 --> 00:40:17.010
  • OKAY, SHOW ME SOME MORE.
  • 00:40:17.030 --> 00:40:19.180
  • NOW I CAN JUST GO ON, AND YOU ME, I'LL GO ON AND
  • 00:40:19.200 --> 00:40:22.260
  • TALK, AND IT'S JESUS' WORDS RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:40:22.280 --> 00:40:27.070
  • - SO WHAT WAS IT? WAS IT A PRAYER?
  • 00:40:27.090 --> 00:40:29.220
  • - YEAH, I WAS WITH A GUY.
  • 00:40:29.240 --> 00:40:31.120
  • WE WERE ONE-ON-ONE, AND IT WAS SALVATION, JESUS
  • 00:40:31.140 --> 00:40:34.240
  • DIED FOR MY SINS. AND I DID A FULL SURRENDER.
  • 00:40:34.260 --> 00:40:40.130
  • - SO YOU KNEW A LOT ABOUT IT.
  • 00:40:40.150 --> 00:40:44.140
  • - I GOT FORGIVEN.
  • 00:40:44.160 --> 00:40:46.230
  • I FORGAVE MYSELF, FORGAVE. HE DIED FOR ME SINS.
  • 00:40:46.250 --> 00:40:49.120
  • IT WAS JUST A FORGIVENESS WHERE I COULD LET IT GO,
  • 00:40:49.140 --> 00:40:52.000
  • AND I DIDN'T HAVE THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON MY
  • 00:40:52.020 --> 00:40:54.080
  • SHOULDERS ANYMORE.
  • 00:40:54.100 --> 00:40:55.240
  • IT WAS LIKE WHOOSH, OKAY.
  • 00:40:55.260 --> 00:40:57.120
  • - IT WAS LIKE YOU KNEW ABOUT JESUS, BUT THEN YOU
  • 00:40:57.140 --> 00:40:59.030
  • SURRENDERED TO JESUS.
  • 00:40:59.050 --> 00:41:01.020
  • - ABSOLUTELY. THERE'S A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:41:01.040 --> 00:41:02.140
  • I HAD WHAT KENDRA HAD.
  • 00:41:02.160 --> 00:41:04.020
  • THERE'S A RELATIONSHIP, OR THERE'S BEING -- AND
  • 00:41:04.040 --> 00:41:05.260
  • SHE KNEW RIGHT AWAY.
  • 00:41:05.280 --> 00:41:07.090
  • I GOT THE, "YOU SURRENDERED!"
  • 00:41:07.110 --> 00:41:09.090
  • AND I COULD TELL THE DIFFERENCE. IT WAS LIKE EASY.
  • 00:41:09.110 --> 00:41:16.150
  • THINGS BECAME SO MUCH EASIER.
  • 00:41:16.170 --> 00:41:19.030
  • - AND WAS THAT WHEN YOU RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT?
  • 00:41:19.050 --> 00:41:21.080
  • - YEAH, YEAH.
  • 00:41:21.100 --> 00:41:22.230
  • ACTUALLY, ON THAT, I DON'T KNOW THERE OR A
  • 00:41:22.250 --> 00:41:26.120
  • LITTLE BIT LATER BECAUSE KENDRA AND I, WE PRAYED
  • 00:41:26.140 --> 00:41:29.070
  • IN A ROOM, AND THEN I WAS BAPTIZED IN THE JORDAN
  • 00:41:29.090 --> 00:41:31.240
  • RIVER BY JONATHAN CAHN OVER IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:41:31.260 --> 00:41:33.260
  • SO THERE'S BEEN PIECES.
  • 00:41:33.280 --> 00:41:36.020
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S A TRANSFORMATION.
  • 00:41:36.040 --> 00:41:40.020
  • - YOU KNOW, MIKE, LET ME JUST SAY THIS.
  • 00:41:40.040 --> 00:41:43.020
  • WHAT IS SO INTERESTING ABOUT YOUR STORY IS THE
  • 00:41:43.040 --> 00:41:48.080
  • "MY PILLOW" WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN,
  • 00:41:48.100 --> 00:41:52.140
  • AND IN SPITE OF YOU, IT CONTINUED.
  • 00:41:52.160 --> 00:41:57.000
  • THE PLATFORM IS NOW MASSIVE.
  • 00:41:57.020 --> 00:42:00.030
  • HOW MANY PILLOWS HAVE YOU SOLD?
  • 00:42:00.050 --> 00:42:01.190
  • - 44 MILLION PILLOWS.
  • 00:42:01.210 --> 00:42:03.060
  • - 44 MILLION. AND HERE WE SIT, 2019.
  • 00:42:03.080 --> 00:42:08.230
  • YOU'RE FULLY SURRENDERED TO JESUS.
  • 00:42:08.250 --> 00:42:11.220
  • YOU PRAYED AND RECEIVED HIM AS YOUR SAVIOR, BUT
  • 00:42:11.240 --> 00:42:15.100
  • THE WHOLE TIME YOU WERE INVENTING THIS, THE HOLY
  • 00:42:15.120 --> 00:42:19.130
  • SPIRIT WAS BRINGING YOU AND INVITING
  • 00:42:19.150 --> 00:42:22.290
  • YOU TO THIS POINT.
  • 00:42:23.010 --> 00:42:25.150
  • THE "MY PILLOW" WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:42:25.170 --> 00:42:27.250
  • WHY DO YOU THINK IS IT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN?
  • 00:42:27.270 --> 00:42:30.030
  • - A HUNDRED PERCENT.
  • 00:42:30.050 --> 00:42:31.210
  • THIS PLATFORM THAT GOD HAS BLESSED ME WITH,
  • 00:42:31.230 --> 00:42:34.010
  • IT'S A PLATFORM -- IT IS JUST A PLATFORM.
  • 00:42:34.030 --> 00:42:38.210
  • IT ISN'T ABOUT THE PILLOW SALES.

  • 00:50:50.230 --> 00:50:52.250
  • I'M GOING TO TELL THE ADDICT, BECAUSE I'M
  • 00:50:52.270 --> 00:50:54.180
  • SELLING TO THE ADDICT, HERE IS YOUR HELP.
  • 00:50:54.200 --> 00:50:57.070
  • YOU GO THROUGH THIS, AND YOU COME OUT,
  • 00:50:57.090 --> 00:50:59.020
  • AND I'M GOING TO BE WAITING FOR YOU.

  • THEY TAKE THEM WHEN THEY COME OUT OF THERE TO
  • 00:51:06.240 --> 00:51:08.190
  • GUIDE THEM THROUGH BECAUSE THEY MADE IT THROUGH.
  • 00:51:08.210 --> 00:51:10.170
  • AND THEN I'LL HAVE AN APP.
  • 00:51:10.190 --> 00:51:12.090
  • THEY'LL COME OUT WITH A FOUNDATION OF JESUS,
  • 00:51:12.110 --> 00:51:14.140
  • THEY'LL HAVE THAT, THEY'LL HAVE JESUS.
  • 00:51:14.160 --> 00:51:16.080
  • BUT THERE MIGHT BE SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:51:16.100 --> 00:51:18.080

  • NOW THEY'LL PUT IN AND THEY'LL GET A MENTOR THAT
  • 00:51:22.100 --> 00:51:24.090

  • 00:51:36.040 --> 00:51:37.250
  • HE HAS SUCH A PASSION TO BEAT THIS OPIOID
  • 00:51:37.270 --> 00:51:39.240
  • EPIDEMIC, AND I KNOW THAT GOD HAS PUT ME INTO

  • POSITIONS FOR ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT THINGS.

  • DOING SO MANY THINGS.
  • 00:51:47.010 --> 00:51:48.130
  • AND I SAY, IT'S NOT WORK.

  • I LOVE WHAT I'M DOING. AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:51:50.040 --> 00:51:51.220
  • WORK IS BEING AN ADDICT. IT WAS SO HARD.
  • 00:51:51.240 --> 00:51:53.210
  • ANY ADDICT OUT THERE, IT'S SUCH HARD WORK.
  • 00:51:53.230 --> 00:51:56.080
  • AND WHEN THEY GET FREED OF THAT AND FIND JESUS,
  • 00:51:56.100 --> 00:51:58.180
  • THEY'RE THE BEST WORKERS ON THE PLANET.
  • 00:51:58.200 --> 00:52:00.180
  • THEY WANT TO SET THE WORLD ON FIRE.
  • 00:52:00.200 --> 00:52:02.040
  • - THAT'S AWESOME.
  • 00:52:02.060 --> 00:52:04.020
