“The President, in my opinion, is a reflection of what’s already there. They don’t cause anything.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Our President is everywhere.

No matter where you turn, his face and some news headline is screaming at you. The mass media makes it near impossible for us to focus on anything else. However, some of the blame must be put on ourselves for keeping those Twitter feeds open, leaving the TV on, and letting our Facebook friends dictate our thoughts.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the importance of the President. By examining this, we can better understand what’s actually happening in our day-to-day when we become distracted by the mass hysteria. Inside this discussion, we unpack the other things that are important in life: diet, exercise, lifestyle, etc.

Tune in to this conversation to learn how to reframe your understanding of the President’s importance.

  • Read Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen Dubner
  • Be aware of how little mass media and news outlets are helping your life
  • To live the best life, be a contrarian by paying attention to what mass media doesn’t acknowledge
  • Washington D.C attracts narcissism, machiavellianism, and psychopathy
  • Ask the question if your politician changes views because of principle or politics
  • There are no more lifelong jobs inside today’s economy
  • Take note when politicians take credit versus blaming others
  • Studies show that people who focus on externalities don’t do as well in life
  • Your body is mostly a reflection of your diet, exercise, and lifestyle
  • Make sure the proportion of energy you spend on politics is aligned with other priorities

“The best marketing is to demonstrate. I don’t tell you why you should listen to me. I show you.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

If everybody knew how to do e-commerce, this opportunity wouldn’t exist.

But instead people choose skepticism over knowledge. They hear the words “dropshipping” and “e-commerce” and immediately think “That’s a scam!” Why they do this is for their own personal problems, but the reality of making money online is that it’s the great frontier of 21st century business. For under $100 today, you can start a business that can net you millions in under a year.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing how to make money online. There are many steps involved: selecting a domain name, purchasing a URL, driving traffic to your site or product through social media advertising. Executing each of these steps is the key to launching a successful business on the Internet. Tune in to today’s discussion to learn how and generate a revenue stream that puts you one step closer to financial freedom!

“It used to cost at least $100,000 to $200,000 to get into business. Today, you can literally start a business for under $100.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Think about business ideas from an angle of what you use in the house
  • You want to launch businesses that have competition
  • Example: McDonald’s only has 10% of the fast-food market
  • Choose a simple, memorable domain name
  • Use GoDaddy or Namecheap when purchasing a domain name
  • Look through AliExpress when finding a source for your product
  • AliExpress will do the shipping for you when someone orders your product
  • Use Shopify or ClickFunnels to build an online store on your domain
  • Today, you can literally start a business for under $100
  • When Jeff Bezos started Amazon in 1994, the website cost $100,000
  • Use Facebook ads to target specific demographics of people online
  • The best marketing is demonstration; show, don’t tell
  • To become rich, you must become a master of common sense
  • Understand that huge brands can disappear (ex: Myspace and American Apparel)
  • There’s no change without a change in routine
  • Don’t blame external resources
  • There are 3 reasons people are broke: procrastination, fear, and overanalysis

“Most people build self esteem around being right, good, or something else. Instead, build your self esteem around being the fastest, best learner” - Tom Bilyeu

(click to tweet)

Today we’re talking with the founder of Quest Bars about how he was able to build a health bar empire. Quest Bars sell 1.5 million bars per day, and today he is giving us a behind the scenes view of what it takes to do something on that scale, and just importantly, what it feels like to achieve the much success.

Tom places a tremendous amount of emphasis on where your self esteem comes from. If your self esteems comes from being right, you will feel too threatened to admit when you’re wrong, and learn from it. But if your self esteem instead comes from the idea that you are an incredible learner, the best learner in any room, you will be willing to admit when you’re wrong.

Just like he says, your behavior is driven by your identity. So the process of defining to yourself what your own identity is, will change your behavior, and in fact is one of the most powerful ways to change your behavior to be what you want it to be.

Learn how to achieve incredible success in whatever you plan to do in life, on this episode of The Tai Lopez Show!

“When your marketing, there has to be a subconscious thing that vibes with what your customer thinks about themselves” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • What you build your self esteem around matters
  • Most people build self esteem around being right, good, or something else. Instead, build your self esteem around being the fastest, best learner
  • Being a constant learner is the only way that you are going to achieve great things
  • Make your goal the adventure, rather than being right
  • Influencers are a powerful way to launch
  • Business partners are like a marriage: You need to really, really know the person before you agree to anything
  • When you do a really good influencer campaign, people will start going into stores, expecting them to be sold there, and asking about it, which will pressure the stores to stock your product
  • Say no to stores who want to carry your product, keep building online, evangelize your customers until they love you, and then in a year or so you can negotiate a deal that’s much better for you
  • What you chase moves away from you, and what you deny moves closer. So attract what you want, but don’t too much of a chaser
  • You have to play the long game
  • When your marketing, there has to be a subconscious thing that vibes with what your customer thinks about themselves
  • You should believe that you can learn to do literally anything
  • Behavior is driven by identity
  • Make your identity what you want it to be, and your behavior must follow
  • Use mentors instead of constantly trying to reinvent the wheel

“Machiavellianism is when people pursue in an interpersonally exploitative strategy.” - Dr. David Buss

(click to tweet)

We are all flawed.

But instead of trying to fix our own issues, we point the flaws in other people. This is an inescapable part of the human condition; it’s easier to look outwards than it is to look inwards.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by world-renowned evolutionary psychologist, Dr. David Buss, to discuss how to fix ourselves. Professor Buss is the author of The New Science of the Mind, and currently teaches at the University of Texas at Austin. He has previously taught at Harvard and the University of Michigan, and today he explains the mechanics behind human psychology.

“We evolved in small groups, and all groups have status hierarchies. From an evolutionary perspective, reproductively relevant resources always accrue to those with the highest status.” - Dr. David Buss

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Host networking events at your house once a month and invite people you want to connect with
  • Bullying is a massive predictor for psychological problems
  • Machiavellianism is a trait in people who pursue in an interpersonally exploitative strategy
  • This can be masked in charisma
  • Narcissism is a sense of entitlement and skewed value of others vs. value of themselves (welfare-tradeoff ratio)
  • Agreeableness is flexibility, patience, gentleness, and forgiveness
  • Conscientiousness is diligence, prudence, organization, and perfection
  • High psychopathy scores are void of empathy and impermeable to learning how to improve
  • Entrepreneurs score the worst on dark triad tests
  • Narcissism is tied to creativity and intelligence
  • Biggest red flags in long-term mate: high neuroticism or low agreeableness
  • High psychopathy scores are incapable of being fixed

“You have to know more about your business than everyone else in the world. Otherwise, someone’s going to kick your ass.” - Mark Cuban

There are only a few billionaires in the world. 

And when we sit down and talk to them, we learn that that there is only one thing separating them and us. That is the level of hard work they were willing to put in, day in and day out.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by the billionaire to discuss what lies behind this work ethic.  As a young 20-something, after discovering that he was skilled at technology, Cuban founded his first company, MicroSolutions. Since then, he’s gone on to forging a net worth of over $3 billion. He is the star of Shark Tank, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, the author of How to Win at the Sport of Business, and a source of knowledge for all of us to tap into.

“I’d be lying if I said I knew I was going to be a billionaire or that I thought it was even possible. It never crossed my mind. I just found whatever it took to motivate me.” - Mark Cuban

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • The one thing you can control is effort
  • Find something you love to do, be great at, and find a way to sell it
  • Follow your curiosity, not your passions
  • Don’t look to others for answers, find them yourself
  • Find out what motivates you and do that
  • Look at how technology is being used today to figure out where it’s going tomorrow
  • Age is relevant to your entertainment-watching decisions
  • As you get older, you take the path of least-resistance

“The best time management is spending the majority of the day on things you’re naturally good at.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Warren Buffet says the most correlated factor to making your first million dollars is the age in which you start
  • The #1 reason why people give up on making their first million is an expectation of it being easy
  • Your first business should be service-based where you sell your time (dog-walking, personal training, etc.)

  • As you rise in wealth, prepare for betrayal by developing thick skin
  • “A nation is born stoic, and dies epicurean.” - Will Durant
  • Read Managing Oneself by Peter Drucker to learn about time management
  • Read Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
  • Be sure you’re only working hard once you figure out what works for you

“Not all crazy ideas are smart, but all smart ideas are crazy.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


There’s book smarts. 

And then there’s street smarts. We know which of these two we have more of, and what areas of the other we need to work on, but how exactly do we go about doing this? 

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the balance of street smarts and book smarts. When we lean too heavily in one direction, our skills become lopsided and as a result, our career trajectory may flatten. But if we can welcome both domains of knowledge into our daily lives, we are able to reach new heights. 

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how to manage these sometimes opposing forces, so you can maximize your potential!

“If you’re too selfish, you get categorized as evil. If you’re too altruistic, you get taken advantage of and taken off the planet.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Be skeptical of people who claim to do things for purely altruistic reasons
  • Top executives like Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates are ruthless when they need to be
  • Street smarts is how well you navigate the real world, and wisdom is street smarts combined with book smarts
  • Agreeableness is flexibility, patience, gentleness, and forgiveness
  • Conscientiousness is diligence, prudence, organization, and perfection
  • This is the number one predictor of success in business
  • At their core, humans are risk-averse beings
  • Agriculture (not cars) is the most responsible factor for environmental degradation
  • Be careful of when you oversimplify, it’s neither just nature or just nurture
  • The biggest scams in America are the education and food systems
  • The spark of attraction is your body genetically registering reproductive health
  • Ask yourself how you solve problems when the situation is unfair
  • Language isn’t about grammar, rather it’s about communication 
  • Be careful of who you choose to have kids with

“Be firm with your beliefs. You will find people who try to move you to what they want to do. Resist. Resist. Resist.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

We all want to do everything. 

But when we try to attack this idea, we often get lost in the tsunami of action items. Do I open a business account? Build a website? Buy advertising? From the outside, this may look like stagnation. But the truth is that it’s part of the process, and we just haven’t distilled our goals down yet. This is the first step to forward progress. 

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are unpacking the essential components of effective time management. By uncovering the bare bones, we can more optimally approach our day-to-day and maximize what life has to offer.

“Clarify your goals. If you had more time, in an ideal world, what would you do with it?” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Distinguish between your conscious and subconscious goals
  • Read Civilization and Its Discontents by Sigmund Freud
  • Evaluate human behavior to get to the core of what they care about
  • There are many schools of philosophical thought that say work is the meaning of life
  • Know what your goal is, and then back into what’s required to achieve the goal
  • Use Whatsapp voice memos as an alternate communication medium

“We’ve grown up in under an antibiotic umbrella where we think antibiotics are going to cover and cure everything.” - Dr. Martin Blaser

(click to tweet)

 

Health is more than a diet and exercise regimen. 

When we take a minute to examine our health from a more global perspective, the other factors of well-being surface. Our lifestyle, our habits, our mindset—these are the things that shape a person’s vitality.  

And on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Dr. Martin Blaser, the Director of The Human Microbiome Project at NYU’s School of Medicine, to discuss the dangers of antibiotic use. Dr. Blaser has 28 patents, and is the author of Missing Microbes, a book that examines how our species is devolving with the declining supply of microbes in our system.

Tune in to this conversation to capture an educated perspective of the whole health ecosystem!

“Our system is completely backwards. It’s a false economy. People are making a lot of money out of germaphobia.” - Dr. Martin Blaser

  • Without microbes we would not be alive
  • There is evidence that our supply of microbes is disappearing
  • Evidence that this is at the root of the rising rates of autism, celiac disease, Alzheimer’s, etc. 
  • Most probiotics have not been tested in scientific studies over the long term
  • Kids who take on average more antibiotics than others turn out fatter
  • We only look at the benefits of antibiotics because doctors are too concerned about liability
  • Babies pick up their mother’s microbes in the birth canal
  • Rising rates of cesarean sections are preventing this from happening
  • 70 years ago, agriculture experts figured out that if you feed antibiotics to animals, they gain weight faster
  • Some cities have an antibiotics in their drinking water
  • Sweden uses 40% of the antibiotics we use
  • Epidemics come from the lack of diversity in our current living situations
  • Kids born by C-section are more prone to disease (celiac disease, juvenile diabetes, etc.)
  • The rate of juvenile diabetes is doubling every 25 years
  • A Denmark study showed that antibiotics increase risk of inflammatory bowel disease by 14% in kids
  • We’ve engineered a system where the doctor-patient relationship is sterile 
  • Antibiotics change the metabolism in adults 
  • We need better diagnostics to determine viral vs. bacterial infections
  • Food preservatives are antibacterials destroying our microbiome
  • Our good bacteria fights the bad bacteria; this is the problem with anti-bacterial products
  • Hospitals and doctors like C-sections because they’re scheduled

Mistakes are unavoidable. 

Especially in business, there will be times when hindsight crystallizes and the doubts of why you negotiated that way or sold at this price rise to the surface.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are diving deep into the #1 mistake in business—that which comes when selecting the wrong business partner. By wrapping our heads around this tendency of entrepreneurs, we can do our best to avoid the trap that many of us can fall victim to.

“If your goal is to make $1,000,000 because that’s what you’ve calculated is required to retire on—that’s not greed. That’s goal-setting. That’s logic.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • “For what profits a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul.”
  • On a neurological level, narcissism is a lack of brain matter in certain areas
  • The number 1 mistake people make in business is selecting the wrong business partner
  • Seek out sales jobs (60% of billionaires started in sales)

  • You can only learn business by being in the trenches
  • If hesitant about college, start by taking just one class at a time
  • Distill the law of attraction by taking action towards who you want to attract

“Common sense is no longer common.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


There’s reason to sit in front of the computer all day. 

With our projects calling for our attention, we may think that the more hours we spend in front of a computer screen, the better. However, if we can allocate just 20 minutes a day to removing ourselves from the digital traps, we can start to open up our eyes to better, and more nuanced ideas. 

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the importance of moving our bodies. In business, having a clear view of reality is one of the top predictors of success, and if we spend too much time cooped up in front of electronics, we may be running the risk of fogging our vision. 

Tune in to today’s episode to learn these fundamentals, so you can start to draw up your most creative business ideas!

“The world is very hectic. Most people aren’t thinking about anything.” - Tai Lopez

  • Read Civilization and Its Discontents by Sigmund Freud
  • At the core, people seek pleasure and avoid pain
  • Most pain comes from people 
  • Research shows that dating sites attract more promiscuous people
  • Behavior is a combination of genetics and nurture/environmental factors

“People love people that subconsciously remind them of themselves. Narcissists love narcissists.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Change is difficult. 

In our businesses, in our relationships, whatever the area of our life is that we’re seeking change in, it is a challenge. To initiate the shift, we have to of course look outward and examine the externalities of our lives. But the real momentum change comes when we look inward and assess ourselves. 

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing The 67 Steps. When we take personality tests, we can pinpoint what areas of ourselves need to be addressed. This helps us determine a course of action when trying to create the optimal health, wealth, love, and happiness.

Listen to this episode to learn about key personality traits, so you can better understand the people around you!

“You don’t want to be surrounded by ‘yes-men.’ You want to be surrounded by people who are going to say, “Hey Boss, I have a better way.” - Jocko Willink

(click to tweet)

Everybody has goals they want to accomplish. 

But very few are making the daily steps to make it happen. Too often in life we get caught up in the winds of obligation and commitment, and we leave our bigger dreams by the wayside. To combat this tendency, we must learn the keys to productivity. 

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Navy SEAL Jocko Willink to discuss productivity. Jocko is the author of 3 New York Times Bestsellers, most notably Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win. Willink’s insights spread across multiple domains: from discipline to foreign policy, all the way to how to run a business. Tune in to hear his insights, so you can learn how to do the most with your given schedule.

Say your video’s call-to-action is too explicit; a viewer will see that and turn the other way. Or if the product’s need is not rooted in enough emotional weight, the potential customer might not feel incentivized enough to purchase. Whatever the case may be, the cure to this is to tell relatable stories. A relatable story is an emotional story. From the failure stories to the love stories, if the core of the messaging is rooted in something that the viewer or reader can relate to, the storytelling becomes much easier. No longer are you tiptoeing through the tripwires in the potential customer’s head; he or she is on the same page and will inevitably feel motivated to buy your product. On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are taking a close look at relatability. In a conversation with my brother, we discuss all things related to storytelling, marketing, and interpersonal relations. How can you be more relatable in each of these domains is the question we answer in today’s episode. Don’t forget! You can also listen to The Tai Lopez Show on Spotify! Click “Follow” and let me know what you think!“Anything you can do to make people see themselves in your story will automatically connect them with you. Next time a police officer pulls you over, make him see himself in the driver’s seat.” - Tai Lopez(click to tweet)Points to Keep In MindBeing real is being relatableWhen trying to get what you want, present your need in a way that people can relate toThe Kardashians are successful because their family dysfunction, at its core, is relatableLove is the most relatable theme in any marketing or storytelling materialEveryone can relate to being hurt, and the vulnerability that createsYou have to make the person see yourself in your shoesPeople relate to the failure story; another reason to launch businesses and fail, it will help you relate in the futureEmotional intelligence is the soft skills, far different than the IQ they teach in schoolIf you’re ever losing the crowd, say “I want to tell a story about someone close to me who betrayed me”Optimism bias causes a person to believe that they are at a lesser risk of experiencing a negative event compared to others  Learn more about your ad choices.

Physical therapy for the injured back, blood-thinners for hypertension, and a new diet for diabetes. But scientists today are learning how to respond before the ailment presents itself.

Dr. David Buss: Why Understanding Evolutionary Psychology Will Get You Rich
03:06:19
“We evolved in small groups, and all groups have status hierarchies. From an evolutionary perspective, reproductively relevant resources always accrue to those with the highest status.” - Dr. David Buss (click to tweet) It’s no secret that a greater understanding of people will lead you to more success in business. From hiring to collaborating to managing to pitching, almost every touchpoint of business involves interacting with people. And if you’re not interacting, you are most likely working on your product that will ultimately affect or influence people. Thus, a greater understanding of human behavior and psychology will undoubtedly help you take your business to the next level. But how you choose to learn about human behavior is what will determine your level of knowledge and ultimately separate you from the competition. And that is why we are so focused on evolutionary psychology. To study evolutionary psychology is to understand the human being from the core; how did we evolve over the past hundreds of millions of years to be the way we are today. On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by world-renowned evolutionary psychologist, Dr. David Buss. Professor Buss is the author of The New Science of the Mind, and currently teaches at the University of Texas at Austin. He has previously taught at Harvard and the University of Michigan, and today he explains how the principles of evolutionary psychology can be applied to business.    Don’t forget!

“Augmented reality will eliminate the fear of others and make the world a better place.” - Jay Samit (click to tweet) Over the past few years, we’ve witnessed augmented reality technologies develop. But products like Google Glass and QR codes made us skeptical of whether this technology had a place in the real world. Then there was Pokémon Go, which caught the world’s attention, made over $1 billion dollars, and made any AR-related doubts vanish from our minds. On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by augmented reality-expert Jay Samit. He is the Independent Vice Chairman of Deloitte and the bestselling author of Disrupt You!

This episode is a bit higher level than other episodes have been. We’re discussing Will Durant and his ideas about humanity, hero’s, war, and the natural balance of the world.It’s important to train your brain to be able to tackle difficult or complicated topics.

Why You Must Take Responsibility for Your Results to Succeed
00:11:25
“You will always offend people with whatever you do, so don’t worry too much about it” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) This message is a hard hitting reminder that, while we all make mistakes, it’s extremely important that you always put out work that is the highest quality of which you are capable. After doing something, if you can honestly say it was the best you could have done, nobody can fault you. But if you did not pursue the work in a conscientious way, with an understanding of the consequences to yourself or whoever you work for, you have no excuse. This is a piece of internal communication with my team, as well as a lesson for everyone who wants to accomplish big things in this world: Everyone likes to make excuses for why they didn’t do as good a job as they wanted, but pure results are the real measure of what has been done. Hold yourself to this high standard, and you will go far. “It’s extremely important to be able to say and admit to yourself that you messed up” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind You will always offend people with whatever you do, so don’t worry too much about it Instead of immediately making a judgement call about something, good or bad, right or wrong, try to see what you can learn from it first Learn from everything instead of making an immediate value judgement about it Put yourself in someone else’s shoes to better understand what’s really going on The best way to deal with humans is to always start out nice with people, and then treat them back the way that they treat you You can tell when something is being dealt with in a consciousness way, or when it was not It’s extremely important to be able to say and admit to yourself that you messed up Learn more about your ad choices.

How to Learn from the Great Successes and Failures of History
00:50:19
“Study history so that you don’t make stupid decisions” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Do you read history? Today, most people don’t. Most people don’t read at all, but if they do read, it’s probably either light, fluffy novels or maybe a self-help book here and there. But what about history? What can a deeper understanding of history do for your life, in helping you achieve the best life possible? Today, I’m going through some moments in history, and what can be learned from them. Because without and understanding of history, there really is no way that we can predict the future. But because history tends to repeat itself, if we develop an understanding and knowledge of history and the trends that come back time and time again, we can better understand the world around us, and make more sense of where it’s headed, as well as if current political decisions are likely to be a good idea. "The reward should be emphasized in education to motivate students to learn" - Tai Lopez (click to tweet)   Points to Keep In Mind To start learning history, focus first on what you enjoy History should be more about stories than dates and numbers to be interesting Show the reward before you teach in order to effectively learn, and want to learn! First you get the mindset, then you launch the business, then you get the money. The progression is important Use the HEXACO personality test to more fully understand personalities The C, which stands for Conscientiousness, is probably the most important attribute when it comes to making money Conscientiousness: Perfectionism Organization Prudence (the ability to make good decisions) Parents are usually the worst thing for their kids Politics and Republican vs Democrat tends to have more to do with personality types Knowing history, and how it repeats itself, will help you earn more money and be more successful The mark of an intelligent person is to see both sides of a story Study history so that you don’t make stupid decisions Learn more about your ad choices.

The Ideal Business Model You Should Look For
00:05:09
“Be careful about business models where your costs grow with your revenue” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Everyone is looking for the ideal business model. They’re looking to discover the perfect model to bring ever increasing revenue. Today, I’m talking about two common business models, and which I prefer. The two models: Netflix and Spotify. Netflix buys out agreements with content creators, whereas Spotify pays royalties dependent on number listens. Therefore, as Spotify’s income increases, so too does their cost. But as Netflix’s income increases, their costs stay the same, or even decrease. This is one of the most important factors to look at when analyzing a potential business. Will cost increase as revenue increases, or will cost stay the same or even decrease? Look for business models where cost decreases as revenue increases. “The ideal business is one where you sell ever increasing units at an ever decreasing cost” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Be careful about business models where your costs grow with your revenue Look for a way for cost to decrease as income increases The ideal business is one where you sell ever increasing units at an ever decreasing cost When you start a business, be careful about signing licensing and royalty agreements where your cost will increase with increased revenue Learn more about your ad choices.

What They Should have Taught You in School
00:38:04
“The world needs people who are willing to say it like it is, and not gloss over it” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) We learn a lot of things in school, but the emphasis is often put on the less practical pieces of information, rather than the knowledge that will really help you get ahead and live a good life. On today’s episode, I’m going through some of the things that they should have taught us in school. I’m taking questions from the audience, to give you the information that is going to truly help you live the kind of life you want to. We go through how to get investments, how to pitch, why you should hire an accountant, how to save money on taxes, and why education will be the ultimate way we can lessen poverty in the world. “There are no solutions, only trade offs. So pick your poison” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind The world needs people who are willing to say it like it is, and not to gloss over it On the flip side, if someone tells it to you like it is, you need to not get offended by it, but take the truth from it and use it to motivate you Good investors know that they should invest in the human above the business If you’re pitching a business, you need to tell a story. A story will make something relatable and make it stand out to the people you’re pitching to If you’re looking for investments, start with people you know. It will be a lot easier to get the first money from them Unless you have a background as an accountant, you should probably hire an accountant, even before you’re making a lot of money The best way to save on taxes is to own a business and write off expenses Never mess with the IRS. Don’t try to be tricky with taxes If you want to make a lot of money, you will pay a lot of taxes You can’t tax people enough to end poverty. Instead, you must increase productivity if you want to combat poverty, and the best way to increase productivity is to educate people The way you fix the most problems in the world is through education There are no solutions, only trade offs.

Don’t Be Offended!
00:41:18
“You have to train yourself to laugh at adversity” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Today, it feels like everyone is looking for something to be offended by. Whether the thing has anything to do with them or not, they’re on the search for something that they can be offended by. If you really need to be offended, though, be offended by the big problems in the world! Or, better yet, choose to learn from the process of being offended, and improve yourself through it. Take the things that people say to you, that would offend weaker people, and use them as motivation to work on improving yourself everyday. “Use pain and feeling offended to motivate yourself to improve” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Today it seems like people are looking for ways to be offended Sometimes, you need to be a little hurt by the truth, to help you change something about yourself The sooner that you learn that people won’t like you and you will be offended, the sooner you can get used to it If all you do is get offended, you don’t hurt the person who offended you, you only hurt yourself Don’t take things personally, because 99% of the time it’s not even about you anyways You have to train yourself to laugh at adversity You’re only free when you’re the master of your thoughts Use pain and feeling offended to motivate yourself to improve Your brain gravitates toward negativity, so negative comments will really affect you if you let them The emotional motivation of pain can bring you to success Harness what offends weaker people, and turn it into your motivation Learn more about your ad choices.

The Real Reason Most People Fail, and How You Can Avoid It
00:42:47
“Never be the person signing a contract that you don’t fully understand” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) How careful are you about the contracts that you sign? Do you read them and fully understand them, in all of their details, before attaching your signature? Or do you think it will all just magically “work out” somehow for you? Too many people do the later. They don’t pay enough attention. This is such a common thread you see in the world: Plain ignorance. As I say on this episode, the root of all the problems in the world is not the rich getting richer. The root of all problems is ignorance, plain and simple. But, in a lot of ways, it’s not everyone’s fault: The schooling system has set them up for failure. It’s set them up to go through the most formative years of life without learning the most practical skills. Things like money management, entrepreneurship, just pure logical thinking, all get passed over, and, to make matters worse, children are given tons of sugar through the sodas they drink, and then forced to sit through a standardized test. It’s no wonder people don’t come out with good critical thinking skills. Don’t be someone who contributes to the main problem in the world of ignorance. Educate yourself, and learn to be smarter and more practical. “The root of the problems in the world is not the rich getting richer. It’s ignorance” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Be very careful with money. Always underestimate your claims to insure you are safe with your estimates Manage people’s expectations by underestimating Videotape something if you could potentially need more proof in the future If you ever invest money in something, don’t expect it to come back. Only give money you can survive without ever seeing back Don’t personally guarantee anything unless you are ready to pay the full thing, because you may have to Never be the person signing a contract that you don’t fully understand Children should start learning practical money management techniques young School should focus more on skills Incentive people with what works to incentivize them! Whether that’s cars, girls, mansions, do what actually works! People at the top should raise up everyone else, not keep them down The root of the problems in the world is not the rich getting richer.

“There are three types of people: People making things happen, people watching things happen, and people wondering what happened” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) People tend to underestimate what they can do, and what is possible, because they don’t have the ability to focus. If you can’t really concentrate your efforts on one task for an extended period of time, you’re going to find it a lot more difficult to actually get things done.

If you’re broke, admit it, and move on to the next phase The problem with people blaming other people for their financial problems is that they will never get out of the situation they find themselves in There’s no long-term fix for making more than you make, you have to recognize it and change it At the end of the day, nobody really cares about you but you If people took have the time that they spent complaining about things and put it into fixing their situation, they might not have anything to complain about anymore Learn more about your ad choices.

How Habits Bring You Success
00:03:08
“The school system should be less about memorizing information and more about forming good habits” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) The school system focuses far too much on memorizing data. In today’s age, data is not nearly as important as good habits. You can find any information you really need at a moment’s notice on your phone. But habits, which define how you spend your time day in and day out, are going to make the difference in how successful you are able to be.

The Secret to Everything You Hate and Love About Your Life
00:03:05
“Almost everything you hate or love about life stems from a habit” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet)  Almost everything in your life, whether you love it or hate it, can be traced back to some habit you formed. Whether it’s procrastinating when you know you should be working on something, watching hours of TV everyday, or good things like constantly looking for solutions, eating healthy, getting good amounts of sleep. In a large part, your life is simply made up of a bunch of habits you’ve created over time. This is why the school system should focus much more on forming the right habits, rather than memorizing things. Habits and having the right habits define how happy and successful you will be in life, but they’re not created instantly. They have to be refined and worked on continually, over a long amount of time. But keep at them, and they will turn into powerful pillars for your good life. “The school system should be far more geared toward creating the right habits, instead of memorization” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they’re too strong to be broken Almost everything you hate or love about life stems from a habit The school system should be far more geared toward creating the right habits, instead of memorization It’s much easier to form habits when you’re younger, so start now and work hard on creating the right habits It’s better to do 15 minutes a day for a long time then to keep going all in, and giving up Learn more about your ad choices.

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “The quickest path between two points is a straight line. FOCUS” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Today I’m talking about the three main pieces of advice that I would give my younger self if I could go back in time. These are the broad ideas that are going to make a big difference in your life, no matter what your specific goals are. First of all, the quickest path between two points is always a straight line. This means that you must bring determined and unrelenting focus to your goals. Whatever you see as your aim, you need to focus very strongly on that one thing, even though it can alter and change somewhat over time. Whatever it is right now, you need to be able to bring determined and long-term focus towards its accomplishment. This is what is going to separate you from the rest of the people in the world who are also trying to accomplish things. Most of the world is distracted, and that is what is holding them back. But in a world full of distractions and distracted people, you need to bring intense focus to your goals, and you will see them accomplished. For the other two things I would tell my younger self, as well as more advice on how to live the best life possible, listen to this episode of The Tai Lopez Show! “You can get almost anything you want in life, but it will always take you a bit longer than you think” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind The quickest path between two points is a straight line. FOCUS Build on your strengths, not on your weaknesses Do wish for other people’s strengths, and try to build on those You can improve weaknesses, but you can’t primarily build on them You can get almost anything you want in life, but it will always take you a bit longer than you think The temptation to give up is right before you succeed Life is a like a ladder, you start at the bottom, and if you try to jump up to the top too fast, you’ll fall on your face Go on step, one rung of the ladder at a time Go directly toward what you want, with focus, in everything in your life, whether personal or professional Build the mental skills to be able to bring singular focus to whatever you need to To get what you want, you need to deserve what you want Pray for what you want Everybody’s specific desire is different, but YOU know what you want, so FOCUS on it Even if you’re young, don’t assume that you have a lot of time.

How You Can Gain Wisdom, Not Just Information, To Be Truly Successful
00:12:01
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “Try to attain wisdom rather than just information” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Information is important, but facts can distract from the foundational principles of the world. A lot of people get far too caught up in the process of attaining peripheral information, rather than exploring and seeking to deeply understand the principles and foundations of life. Things like general economics, social skills, the ability to read people, and financial principles, are the kind of foundational knowledge that you should be seeking to acquire. Because without them, when you simply focus on the peripheral information and education, it’s easy to be led astray by things that are not true. But knowledge and wisdom of foundational principles will allow you to see through the lies, identify them, and allow you to build on that foundation in a strong way so that you can be more successful in life and your pursuit of health, wealth, love and happiness. “Wisdom is the common sense you get from being curious and observant” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Everyone has a different opinion on how to lead the best life. But you need focus in your life if you want to see success If you aren’t careful in life, you just won’t get anything done Try to attain wisdom rather than just information Understand the foundational principles, so that you don’t get distracted by all of the extra information available. Without the foundation, you won’t be able to tell the truth from the lies If you don’t have common sense and wisdom, you can make a lot of money, but will probably lose it Sometimes you must be cynical, and sometimes cynicism closes the door on opportunity Most problems come from problems of how to interact with people Wisdom is the common sense you get from being curious and observant Learn more about your ad choices.

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “Most people only make money with time, but making it with money is infinitely scaleable” - Warren Buffett (click to tweet) This episode is a recounting of the notes I took at a recent Berkshire Hathaway shareholder’s meeting. Speaking and in attendance were Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Charlie Munger and many more, so on this episode I am going back through my notes to deliver the takeaways and key points to you. Throughout the meeting, they got into issues like the concept of making money with money instead of time, why you should specialize, why you must be a constant, life-long learner, why good health is essential and should be a priority, as it will affect everything else that you try to do, and why you should do what you want to do NOW instead of waiting for the perfect time. “College degrees are fine, but what are you learning RIGHT NOW?” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind One of the definitions of investing is the ability to make money with money Most people only make money with time, but making it with money is infinitely scaleable You have to understand the basic fundamentals before getting into advanced topics You can’t be good at everything, you MUST specialize Experiment, find what you’re good at, and then double down on that Problems will not go away if left alone, they will only get worse College degrees are fine, but what are you learning right now? You don’t need a lot of wins to make a lot of money, you just need a few good ones If you let your health go down, it will negatively affect the rest of what you’re trying to do When you pick your career, don’t pick entirely based on money, pick based on your interest Be cautious when making investments based on EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization) Capitalism will always hurt a few while benefitting society as a whole Every type of society has pros and cons Never tell anyone about your problems. 90% of people don’t care, and the other 10% that do care are glad you have them The 7-Takeaways Focus on your circle of competence- what you KNOW you’re good at When a problem arises, in any situation, deal with it quickly A life of continuous learning is a life that’s well-lived. The more you learn the more you earn You can’t catch all the investments. Know that you will miss some, and be ok with that While you do learn new things, be sure not to unlearn the old principles Keep your physical body in good shape, otherwise it will negatively affect the rest of what you do If you have something to do, don’t wait!

Because most people think about themselves almost all of the time, are obsessed with themselves, their feelings, emotions and desires, these are the things that you need to appeal to if you want to be persuasive. This might seem obvious, but very, very few people are really good at putting themselves in someone else’s shoes and really approaching a conversation, whether sales or other, from that viewpoint. Today, we’re talking about how to effectively persuade someone through the skill of looking at life through the lens of their desires and emotions, not your own. “People are in love with themselves, not with you, and good marketers understand that” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind If you want to convince and persuade someone, appeal to their desires Nobody is ever convinced by logic. Appeal to desires, self interest, and emotions instead Emotion is still the most powerful thing in almost anyone’s life Start with other people’s interest, instead of your own, when you’re asking for anything People are in love with themselves, not with you, and good marketers understand that Focus on other people, and bring up your own needs last Learn more about your ad choices.

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “You are what you are, and you have to build on your strengths” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Have you heard the saying “jack of all trades, master of none?” It comes from the idea that someone who tries to do EVERYTHING might end up not being really good at anything. It’s the idea behind specialization. Too many people are trying to be too broad, or are trying to build on their weaknesses, instead of recognizing their strengths and working on those, to optimize their results. Then, work to surround yourself with people who have strengths in areas that you have weaknesses in, so that every area is covered. To spend too much time, energy, and effort working on your weaknesses will only be a waste of time. Therefore, the key is to be able to accurately identify your real strengths, and this is something that most people have a very hard time doing. Listen to this episode to learn how to find your real strengths, and build on them, to live the best life possible! “Awareness about yourself and who you are is the most important, first step” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind The idea of authenticity is tricky, because it tends to mean different things to different people You can change part of you, but part of you will always remain the same You are what you are, and you have to build on your strengths You’re wasting your effort and energy if you’re building on your weaknesses instead of your strengths You can be very successful without trying to become someone other than who you are Very few people actually have a good understanding of their strengths A lot of people project what they wish was their strength, when it is not Society will tell you that you need to be one way, but society speaks in generalizations which are often not completely correct To find your strengths, go back to what people said about you when you were very young Make a list of all your goals over the last 18 months, and then be very honest about which things were actually accomplished, and which you didn’t really do Don’t beat yourself up over your weaknesses, focus on improving your strengths Surround yourself with people who complement your weaknesses No matter what your personality is, there’s somebody who is the exact opposite, and you should get around people like that Awareness about yourself and who you are is the most important, first step Find a balance in your life between all the things that you want, and allocate time Learn more about your ad choices.

Today’s episode is about how you can set the right rewards in your life to make sure that you always have plenty of motivation to get beyond the temptation to procrastinate.

If you blend in, you simply will not be noticed by the movers and shakers in any industry, so you won’t be able to climb the ladder to true influence and earning potential. Today, I’m teaching you how to raise your VRIN score to stand out, and be more valuable in your industry, to earn more. VRIN stands for Valuable, Rare, Inimitable, and Non-Substitutable.

But now, in the modern age, we need to find new ways to raise VRIN scores, and I’m teaching you exactly how on this episode. “Have a combination of learning straight from the source and learning from people. Structure AND experiential learning” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Stand out by learning more than other people You can often get visitor passes to college classes There’s no single thing that will do as much to increase your ability to earn as much as educating yourself You must learn things that are valuable to the world if you want to earn more Understand where you stand as far as your employment status, and your full understanding of what you really want out of your life, and your motivations If you’re unsure of what you should be doing, you’re never going to do a very good job of it VRIN: Valuable, Rare, Inimitable, Non Substitutable College degrees used to raise VRIN, because not too many people had them.

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “If you’re not as well equipped, you’ll always lose, even if you’re a better fighter” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Put time and effort into developing the right toolset. Too many people think that hustle is all that they need, and that if they have enough hustle, they will get where they want to go. But it’s not true, because having the right tools, and knowing how to effectively us them will take you much farther than hustle. And HEXACO is a perfect example of that: If you know it, and understand how to apply it to real life, you will know who you should be friends with, go into business with, or have in your life for any reason, while the person who simply sees more hustle as the goal will have to go through a process of trial and error to find the right person, and waste tons of time on the way. Put effort into developing the right toolset through books, podcasts, seminars, conferences, and anywhere else you can learn. “Put time, effort, and money into developing the right toolset” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind The Hexaco score is one of the most cutting-edge psychological profiling tool to understand people Hexaco stands for: Honesty/humility Emotionality X- Extroversion Agreeableness Conscientiousness Openness to new experiences Understand Hexaco to know how to pick friends, business partners, investors, and everyone who will be a part of your life If you’re not as well equipped, you’ll always lose, even if you’re a better fighter When you don’t have enough equipment, you work hard, but don’t get the reward Put time, effort, and money into developing the right toolset Be a sponge: Learn from and soak up everything around you, just make sure it’s the right things to learn Think about your life as a “progress pyramid.” Work from a strong foundation at the bottom Having a negative net-worth is a dangerous place to be in If you make below $80k per year, it’s very easy to be in a place of financial insecurity Most people don’t have the focus to accomplish great things Learn more about your ad choices.

Just because an investor has a lot of money and is looking for an investment does not mean that they are a good fit for you. You have to match up the right investors for your idea.

Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “We are all deluded into thinking that we are the center of the universe, but it’s not true” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Almost everyone in the world makes the ego-centric, which is the error of thinking, often subconsciously, that the world is all about you. That you are, in essence, the “center of the universe.” Whether people think this consciously or not, it manifests itself in the way they behave. The mistake that this causes in sales and raising money from investors, is that you spend time making assumptions that the potential investor or customer is interested in the same things you are, instead of gathering data about what the other person is really interested in, and what is most important to them. Learn how to see the world through the wants and desires of those around you, to be able to exert more influence, sell better, and far more effectively raise money, on this episode of the Tai Lopez Show! “Constantly be gathering data about the world and the people around you” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind We are all deluded into thinking that we are the center of the universe.

The most common thought process if that if they had morning money, they could make the business work. But the truth is that most people are far more business-savvy constrained than money-constrained. The high-earners in the world put large amounts of time and effort into learning through reading, listening to smart people, going to conferences, and other activities. The world is far more competitive than most people realize when it comes to having the knowledge and skill-sets for making money. Warren Buffett reads 250-1,000 pages every day, and there are many high-earners just like him to who are consuming that much information, to help them grow businesses and create revenue. This is your competition, so focus on building skill-sets! But, in case you are at the point where you truly do require money for business-growth, this episode will teach you how to raise it from investors. “People tend to be far more culture-savvy than business-savvy” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind In today's society, it does take a certain amount of money to make money A lot of people think that they’re capital constrained, when there is really something else holding them back A lack of the skills of “business-savvy” is the most common constraint to business growth and success Most people think they have business-savvy, but few people do People tend to be far more culture-savvy than business-savvy, which is much less practical A lot of people don’t realize how competitive the modern world is Learn more about your ad choices.

It has to be trained” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Understanding how to read somebody is one of the most important skills you can develop. While it’s almost never taught in the classroom, the ability to discern aspects of someone else’s character rightfully, asses them and understand enough about them to know if what they will bring to your life will be negative or positive, is one of the most important skills in the world. On today’s episode, I am discussing specific negative character traits, how to spot them, and why they should be avoided at all costs. “Be careful not to date or partner with anyone who exhibits high levels of emotional instability” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Evolution has created a mind that is not well-adapted to the modern world.

A lot of people find themselves paralyzed by the decision making process, when in reality there is a simple tool to help you always make the right decision: Consider the downside. In every decision you make, look at what the downside of both options is. After looking at both, you usually will realize that one is far worse than the other, and your decision is instantly made. In addition, the ability to focus is as valuable as ever, but in far less supply than ever. Being able to focus, to keep away from you phone for chunks at a time, and to focus like a laser on a problem will separate you from the crowd and bring success. “Focus can solve a lot of your problems. You can solve almost anything if you focus” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Most people know what they should do. The difficult thing is simply doing it People struggle with procrastination because they do not have the force of will to do what they need to do In the “soft” life we live in the modern age, most people don’t experience very many life/death moments. But each moment in your life is life/death, as you choose what kind of life you will have Create micro-goals, that each get you slightly closer to your goal Focus can solve a lot of your problems.

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “Don’t waste your time not believing in yourself and your abilities” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Most people don’t realize how valuable their haters are to them. There is a progression that is very common among the successful. Initially, haters don’t even know who you are. They ignore you. Then, they laugh at and ridicule you. After that, as you become more and more successful, they hate you because it reflects poorly on their own life. And then, gradually and over time, they come to love you. So understand that you could be in any one of those stages. But it is a process that you are working through. Each stage leads naturally to the next, and the process has been proven over and over again with almost all success stories. So don’t hate your haters. Love them, appreciate their free PR, and understand which stage you are in. “First they ignore you, then they laugh, then they hate you, then they love you” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Don’t waste your time not believing in yourself and your abilities Being a hater is such a waste of time, energy, and life Haters are free PR for you First they ignore you, then they laugh, then they hate you, then they love you You must look out for yourself, because no one else will People look out for others according to how much DNA they share Always blame yourself if something goes wrong Learn more about your ad choices.

Don’t be in too much of a hurry” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Today’s episode is a small Q&A I did recently in Norway, while shooting hoops. I’m talking about how to very quickly judge whether or not a business is a good idea, why freemium is one of the best business models available today, and how to find the right category for you to thrive in. If you’ve ever wondered how you can know what your focus should be, what your business, or passion, or goal should be, this episode deals with how to define that quickly, and it’s through a process I’ve been talking a lot about lately: Experimentation. But it is a two-step approach to experimentation: Experiment initially to try to find your niche, the thing that you enjoy and are good at, and then experiment constantly once you have defined that, within that space, to optimize your results. “Freemium is one of the best business models: give things away for free, and then charge for just a few things” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Judge business ideas by whether they can make a small amount of progress, and money, very quickly Businesses should win and be a good experiment very quickly early on, and then it might take years to build Experiment constantly to find the initial thing you want to work in, and then experiment within that category Freemium is one of the best business models: give things away for free, and then charge for just a few things Everyone progresses at their own speed.

The Formula for Your Marketing Success: Experiments and How I Run Them

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “Take care of your family, love the people who love you, and destroy your enemies” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Running experiments separates the pros from the amateurs in the marketing world. Those who run the most experiments simply win the most. In fact, in my experience, I have to run about 18 experiments for each winner that I pick out and use again. You will find this to be the fact over and over again in life. The people who refuse to be open minded to other things, to different ideas and ways of doing things, remain stuck in their old ways and don’t innovate, don’t create, and ultimately don’t see the success that they are looking for. But there are specific concepts and methods to keep in mind when it comes to running experiments, and that is what I am talking about in this episode: How to run experiments, learn from them, and adapt, why authenticity is so important to marketing, how true happiness comes from memories, and why services are such a good first business for entrepreneurs. “Authenticity in marketing is powerful” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Look for ways to release dopamine in people’s brains through your social media The exact time you post is not nearly as important as what you are posting Take care of your family, love the people who love you, and destroy your enemies Authenticity in marketing is powerful Run experiments, and don’t be afraid to try new things Instead of being so sure of yourself, go try different things out A huge amount of happiness comes from good memories, so invest in creating them Lots of people put too much effort into their experiments. Instead, make them crappy, so you REALLY know if you have a winner The smartest marketers become experiment machines A lot of people tell you you need to make a lot of mistakes, but that’s only because they did. You can skip the mistakes if you can learn from others Service businesses are great as first businesses to learn with.

17 Ways to Motivate Yourself and Overcome Procrastination
00:32:54
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “Motivation is essential to success, but you need to LEARN how to motivate yourself” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Motivation is required for success. It’s as simple as that. But while most people understand this truth, few people take the time to learn how to motivate themselves effectively and well. People learn a few of the things that motivate them, like money, or relationships, or achievement, and they put all their energy into that one aspect. But below I’m outlining the 17 different aspects of what motivates you, and how you can use them to achieve more. In all of this, it’s importance to have balance. Too often people get all caught up in one or two of the below, and put 90% of their effort into those things. Instead, work on spreading these out evenly in your life, around 5% or so for each, to make sure your life is as fulfilling and happy as possible. “The secret to being able to change is understanding why things are the way they are” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Motivation is essential to success, but you need to LEARN how to motivate yourself Life is about doing and enjoying stuff The secret to being able to change is understanding why things are the way they are Everything in life is a trade-off of some good and some bad One of the most painful things in life is not being able to make sense of what happens ALL 17 of the below things must be experienced to feel fulfilled Don’t focus on any single one of the below things. Work for a mix of all 17 17 Reasons Ambition Achievement: Accomplish difficult tasks, overcome obstacles, and become an expert Recognition: Be recognized for what you do Exhibition: Impress others with your actions or words Materialism Acquisition: It’s ok to have some materialistic goals. Use it as motivation Order: Make things clean, neat, and tidy Retention: Hoarding things- within balance Construction: Build some things, get your hands dirty Defense of Status Infavoidance: Concealing a handicap or a failing Defense: Defend yourself Counteraction: Make up for failure by trying again, have pride Human Power Dominance: Control one’s environment Deference: Admire a superior person, praising and yielding to them Autonomy: Breaking free from constraints Contrarience: Being oppositional Aggression: Forcefully overcome an opponent Abasement: Surround and submit to others, and accept punishment Blame Avoidance: Shifting and stifling blame-worthy impulses Harm Avoidance: Desire to avoid harm Infavoidance: Avoiding being humiliated or embarrassed Affection Between People Affiliation: To be close and loyal to another person Sex: To form relationships that lead to sexual intercourse Rejection: Reject certain people and things Nurturance: Help the helpless, feed and keep them from danger Succorance: To have one’s needs met by someone else Play: Have fun, laugh, and relax Exchange of Information Sentience: Seek out and enjoy sensual experiences Cognisance: Understand, be curious, ask questions and find answers Exposition: Deliver information to others Learn more about your ad choices.

But you can always get more money, you cannot ever get more time, and that makes it the most valuable asset in the world, and worth guarding extremely carefully!

When You Should Stick it Out and When You Should Quit: Lessons from Steve Ballmer
00:24:28
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “Take quick trips to get our of your normal environment to increase your creativity” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Knowing when to give up and when to stick it out on a project is one of the most difficult things. While too many entrepreneurs and people in general are spending too much time working on a dead-end job, or a business model that is clearly not catching on, a lot of people also won’t stick things out long enough to actually find the success that they’re looking for. In this episode I’m talking about a conversation I recently had with Steve Ballmer about how to know whether a project is worth sticking out for the long run, or whether you need to give it up and work on something else. When “stickiness” (Steve Ballmer’s term) is required, it’s important that that stickiness and dedication to a clear vision is accompanied by a large amount of creativity. Because if you’re thinking about giving up on something, it probably means that exactly what you’re doing right now isn’t the best way to approach it. Get creative, and find a better way to move forward with it! “A lot of people try to get too much too fast with people they consider mentors” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind When you get the opportunity to meet amazing people, make sure you don’t turn it into an interrogation A lot of people try to get too much too fast with people they consider mentors Take quick trips to get our of your normal environment to increase your creativity Hard work isn’t the objective. Less work with more success is the goal A lot of people don’t have enough “stickability” to a project that has real potential One of the most difficult things is knowing whether to persevere and stick with a project or not Look for signs of potential to know whether to kill a project and move on, or to stick with it Listen to your intuition- you know a lot of things deep down Take every opportunity to learn efficiently, from wherever you can Be efficient in your learning and your life to have a good work/life balance Catch trends, and be open-minded to new things Learn more about your ad choices.

How to Launch a New Product: A Conversation with Tai Lopez and Caleb Maddix
00:17:28
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “If you’re product has to be perfect from the start, it’s not the right product” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) A lot of people are trying to force their customers to like their product. They think that they understand what is best for their consumers, and so they are in this constant uphill battle to make the product so perfect that consumers can’t help but buy it. But this is a losing strategy. A product that is a good market fit doesn’t even need to be perfect for people to want to buy it. This is why it’s important to initially put very minimal effort into testing products, to see if they fit well. Then, once one of them really takes off, you know which product you should be focusing all of your energy on! On today’s podcast, we talk about how to market and sell, how to date, why the internet is changing the age requirements for wealth, what you should focus on while you’re young, and how Caleb should go about launching his book club. “Sell what people already like, don’t try to force them to like it” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Launch new products with minimal effort to see if they take off, before putting a lot of effort into them If you’re product has to be perfect from the start, it’s not the right product Sell what people already like, don’t try to force them to like it Focus on finding the perfect lead to know if the marketing will work Understanding how to wrap your product up correctly to make it something people want is the most important part of marketing Be constantly observant to get better at reading people Ask people stuff. They want to tell you With the anonymity of the internet, you can get rich when you’re young When you’re young, focus on trying to figure out how to make a money machine that steadily increases your wealth instead of getting rich fast CalebMaddix.tvLearn more about your ad choices.

How to Motivate Yourself for Success with Caleb Maddix
00:28:02
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “The person who experiments the most wins” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Materialism motivates. It’s that simple. While everyone is different, and so the extent to which it will motivate you varies, it’s an important principle to keep in mind. Because many people feel guilty about their love of materialistic things. But use it as a tool! If cars motivate you, keep them around! If a nice house motivates you, keep that on your mind. Understand yourself, and your own intrinsic motivations, and then use those any time that you feel like you need an extra push of motivation. This is the second part of my conversation with 14 year-old Caleb Maddix, and we’re talking about why good parenting is one of the best ways to make the world a better place, why most people are working far too hard and training far too little, why critical thinking is an essential skill, why the person who experiments the most wins, and much, much more! “Materialism motivates, so use it for motivation!” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind You’re born with some talent. But when it comes to business, a lot of it is dependent on how much you train and practice, less innate talent Parenting is one of the most effective ways to make the world a better place Most people understand that learning is essential, but they don’t realize that humans learn faster under other people Original ideas are very rare. Almost everything is recycled Every time you meet haters, be thankful for them, they make it easier for you to succeed Hard work is not especially correlated with success. Hard training is Hours only count if they’re in a good training program Critical thinking is an essential skill Materialism motivates, so use it for motivation!

He’s 14 years old, has already made $100,000, and on today’s episode he’s talking about the key concepts and ideas that brought him success at such an early age. We’re talking about how to motivate kids to succeed, why people need to stop planning to do things “someday” and instead do them now, how to develop a hunger to learn, why curiosity is key, and why completion is the most essential part of anything you do! “Develop a hunger to learn” (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Motivate and incentivize your kids to succeed and continually improve themselves Kids shouldn’t be paid for chores, because adults aren’t. They should do that as part of the family Positivity is essential to good parenting Put emphasis on reading the right books in parenting Stop saying you’re going to do something some day. Do it now, take action Focus on a specific dollar number you want to make Develop a hunger to learn You can learn a lot by studying history The fastest way to learn is to click every button.

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “Work less, and READ MORE!” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Understanding and getting good at reading people is one of the most essential skills you work on. It gives you instant insight into whether or not you should trust someone, what you can expect from them in terms of their character, their level of responsibility, and their tendency to come through for you on promises. Developing this skill is essential toward taking dramatic steps towards living the good life. Today I am talking about reading people, why it’s important, what the “Dark Triad” is, why there are downsides to wealth and fame, how to know immediately if a new employee is going to suck, why bullying has such an affect on people, and why you should work less and READ MORE! “Knowing how to read people will help you get ahead like nothing else” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind There are downsides to the things people often desire, including wealth and fame Practice and learn how to read people. It’s one of the most essential things to get good at Knowing how to read people will help you get ahead like nothing else Reading people translates into marketing skills Let new employees have the opportunity to fail early, to show you if they will perform well or not long term Be very careful about people who have been bullied.

The Myth of Passive Income, and Why It Won’t Make You Wealthy
00:19:45
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “You will almost never build wealth through passive investment and income” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Passive income, and the power of it, is one of the most pervasive myths in modern culture. Many people think that passive income is what is going to eventually bring them real wealth. But look at the Forbes list! None of those people created wealth exclusively through passive investment and income. Those who make the most and become the most wealthy are those who are willing to be active in their investment, and to put in the time and effort required to build the kind of wealth they are looking for. On this episode I’m talking about the confusion and misinformation around passive income, how strong a motivator status is, why traditional schooling is holding so many people back, why you should set up multiple bases around the world for your business, and why life is a set of battles you should be willing to lose in order to win the war of having the ultimate good life. “Focus on winning the war of living the good life. Battles are insignificant. Withdraw if you need to” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Status is a strong motivator, and social media is playing a larger and larger role in status in the modern age The earned respect of peers is powerful If entrepreneurship and business could be integrate in traditional education, it would prepare people far better for the world Traditional schooling can really hold people back Consider setting up bases around the world for your business if you are at that level Couch surfing and visiting short-term is often not as enjoyable a way to go to places You will almost never build wealth through passive investment and income Focus on winning the war of living the good life. Battles are insignificant. Withdraw if you need to If you’re testing products, you need to be willing to give up very quickly if it doesn’t convert as well as you would like it to You want to get to the point with your business where you only need to put 3-4 hours a day into it Learn more about your ad choices.

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “If you can master rewards and motivation, you will make a ton of money” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) If you want to be successful in life, whether that means making more money, doing more good, achieving more, or anything else, you will need to master the skill of persuasion. Today, I’m talking about why reward is the strongest persuasion technique, and how to use it. In addition, we go over how you should play the “versus” game to find out what truly motivates you. Compare two common motivations, such as fame and money, and ask which you would rather do without in order to have the other. Once you’ve honed in on what truly motivates you at the highest level, make sure you have a lot of that thing around you, to keep you in a state of constant motivation. “Find out what motivates you, and then fixate on it” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind There is almost no persuasion technique stronger than reward If you can master rewards and motivation, you will make a ton of money Testimonials are extremely persuasive, and a powerful tool in selling Get testimonials that tell the whole story in detail Play the “versus” game to find out what motivates you Find out what motivates you, and then fixate on it Service businesses are great starter businesses Learn more about your ad choices.

Why Working 8 Hours a Day is Too Much
00:20:00
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “What you’re selling matters far more than all the best practices, tips, and hacks about how to sell” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) We’ve been over why there is not a correlation between working hard and having more money. The idea is disproven time and time again, even though it continues to be put forward is a reputable concept. I would even put forward that, unless you’re in a flow state where time seems to slow down (and fly by at the same time) and it basically doesn’t even feel like work, even 8 hours a day is too much! If you’re consistently working 8 hours a day in a non-flow state, you need to look into how you can decrease your input (hours worked) while keeping your output (money in) the same or increasing it. We’re going over all of that, as well as the skill of hiring the right people, why it’s a fool’s errand to try to predict outcomes, and why Dan Bilzerian might just be smarter than Coca Cola... “Hiring is a talent and skill that take time to develop and practice” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Work much smarter than you work hard You need turnover in your business. If you don’t have that, it means something is wrong, people aren’t being let go who should be Hiring is a talent and skill that take time to develop and practice If you have to train your employees too much, your input is too much. Try training less and see who makes it The only time you should work more than 8 hours a day is when you’re in flow In social media, simply post and compare results constantly It’s a fool’s game to try to predict outcomes.

How You Can Make More Money
00:23:52
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “You MUST know what motivates you. This is the most important” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Almost everybody would like to be making more money, if they’re completely honest with themselves. But there are so many mindset problems that people have around money, how it’s made, and how you can get more of it. Most importantly, you MUST know what motivates you, and be very clear about it. If you’re motivated by fast cars, great, use that! If you’re motivating by doing good, great, us that! With the correct motivation, you could do a lot more than you are doing, so the reality is that motivation is often a major missing piece of the puzzle. In addition, don’t make the common mistake of equating hard work with money. The hardest workers in the world are not the richest. There’s simply not a correlation. Learn how to use tools effectively, be smart, and be willing to put in the hard work. But look at the hard work as just one aspect. The input (hard work) should be minimized and the output maximized. Learn how to upgrade your mindset around money to make more of it on this episode of the Tai Lopez Show! “Retrain your mind to see hard things as how hard they ACTUALLY are, and not more” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind You MUST know what motivates you. This is the most important Think of yourself as an investor, and study investing You can always find reasons why you don’t think you can make money, but there are also always examples of people in your circumstances that are making money The people who make the most money are simple about their motivation You will get paid according to the difficulty of the problems you solve Train yourself to keep things absolute, to keep from turning something small into a big problem Retrain your mind to see hard things as how hard they ACTUALLY are, and not more Working hard does not correlate with wealth The goal is not to maximize input, but rather to maximize output Better tools beat harder work every time If you are feeling burnt out, it’s a sign that you’re doing it wrong  Learn more about your ad choices.

How You Should Set Up Experiments To Grow Social Media
00:02:39
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “As a marketer, think in terms of experimentation, learning, and then tweaking” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) A lot of people want to be an influencer, but not very many people know how to do it well. In fact, not very many people or brands know how to leverage and build social media effectively. If you look at top brands in industries, for instance people like Tony Robbins or brands like Coca Cola, their social media platforms have far too few followers and far too poor engagement for how wide and broad their reach is. Yet, having strong social media is so important that it could be argued that it won the presidency in the last election! The problem is that most people are not actively creating experiments, measuring, analyzing, and then tweaking their strategy to be as effective as possible. They think they already know what to do, but most people don’t. This episode is about how to set up effective experiments to grow your social media and influence. “Brands tend to be way behind in advertising, and they’re wasting a lot of money” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Building apps are a huge business opportunity, even if you can’t build them yourself Brands tend to be way behind in advertising, and they’re wasting a lot of money Use your brainpower to build good experiments and learn from them As a marketer, think in terms of experimentation, learning, and then tweaking In social media, keep it entertaining  Learn more about your ad choices.

It’s a sexy thing to do these days, with the bragging rights and fame that come with large numbers of social media followers and influence. But how do you build yourself into an influencer? This episode is about how to use social media to growing your following and turn yourself into an influencer. I’m talking about which platforms are ideal for what types of influence and demographics, how to approach different platforms, and how to win on any of them. “A lot of people simply won’t take the steps and do the work” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind The influencer field is getting crowded, and much more difficult to stand out in Focus in on a niche to differentiate yourself Pick something that is authentic to you to hone in on Don’t be afraid to have a small following, because smaller niche followings can be very active and powerful You’re socials don’t need to be all about your business A lot of people simply won’t take the steps and do the work to see success Be very responsive to what the customer is telling you Research other people’s social media to see what’s working for them and learn from it Over time, you can broaden your niche Facebook ads are one of the most important skills to have The opportunity of social media is only getting bigger Learn more about your ad choices.

Which Business Model Should You Emulate?

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “It’s not the smartest, but the most adaptable, who survive” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Too many people are copying the wrong people. They don’t realize that you can almost never achieve 100% of the what the people you are emulating have done, so you need to overshoot by a lot, so that when you don’t achieve as much as they did, you still end up pretty well off. This episode is about some of the best business models to emulate. Who you copy is extremely important, and I’m breaking down the different business models out there, the good and the bad, and whether you should be copying them or not.   “Go straight to the top: Learn from the very best” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind It’s not the smartest, but the most adaptable, who survive Spreading out and building multiple sources of income is the most powerful method of wealth creation Go straight to the top: Learn from the very best Seek out mentors who are so incredible that if you achieve just 1% of what they did, you will be happy with the result Copy the best Learn more about your ad choices.

What Is More Important Than Hustle?
00:08:00
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “If you don’t know how to use tools, it’s almost impossible to keep up with the competition” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) A lot of entrepreneurs have it backwards. They think that hustle is the goal, that hard work is something to brag about and even to strive for. The truth is that hustle and hard work constitute the input, while the goal of any business is to maximize output while simultaneously minimizing input. This is the confusion that is so pervasive to the entrepreneurial community, and it is holding people back. The hardest working people in the world are, unfortunately, often also the poorest, so there is no correlation. While it is important during times and seasons to work very hard, this should never be the main goal. “Humans got ahead mainly because of their ability to use tools, not because they worked harder” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind If you don’t know how to use tools, it’s almost impossible to keep up with the competition Sadly, the hardest workers in the world often make the least money Humans got ahead mainly because of their ability to use tools, not because they worked harder Hard work is important sometimes, but it will not make up for ignoring and not learning how to use tools well The goal is to not have to work hard Hard work is a cost, not a benefit The goal is to maximize output with as little input as possible  Learn more about your ad choices.

Why Most Businesses Suck
00:05:50
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “Most businesses suck, because businesses are created by people, and too many people are dumb” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) That’s quite a claim, right? But it’s true, most businesses suck. And it’s because businesses are created by people, and most people are dumb. So look for your competitive advantage, and what you can bring to the world that’s truly unique. There was a time when having a college degree was a competitive advantage, but no more. However, if you know how to sell and bring value, you will always be in high demand. “If you know how to sell, you will always be in demand” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Most businesses suck, because businesses are created by people, and too many people are dumb You can always make money by showing people what is new and effective College used to be a competitive advantage, because less people went.

Why You Shouldn’t Try To Be Too Successful Too Fast: Play the Long Game

The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “When you try to jump ahead too fast in life, you often fall on your face” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) People talk a big game. I’ve heard people talk about their “billion dollar idea,” but when asked if they’ve ever made $100 million, $1 million, $100,000, or even $10,00, the answer is no. Success comes in steps, gradually and over time. And believe it or not, this is actually a really good thing. While there are examples of people who have become extremely successful nearly instantly, the large majority of them fell flat on their face immediately thereafter. When steps are skipped, smaller mistakes are skipped, which means you miss the opportunity to learn from small mistakes, and instead make big mistakes. This is the value of taking the long-view in life. Try to become successful too fast, and you’re likely to fall flat on your face. Instead, strive to live each day better, to be more successful, to do better, slowly but gradually, and you’ll be surprised how far you get! Enjoy the journey! “Think about success as 1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base, home run in that order” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind When you try to jump ahead too fast in life, you often fall on your face When you get too much money too fast, you often haven’t made enough mistakes along the way, and you’ll probably make a big mistake and lose a lot Think about success as 1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base, home run You don’t need a home run, you just need continual improvement You have to earn the right to do big things “Make haste slowly” - Joel Salatin Don’t go backwards, but don’t go forwards too fast Consider the power of compounding interest: Over time, small amounts really add up.

Why You Should Fight to Think Outside the Status Quo to Be Successful
00:20:54
The Tai Lopez Show is now available on Soundcloud. Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “The real basis of America is free-thought, not free press. So be a free thinker!” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) If you know your history, you know that society, and the status quo, is almost never right. Whether it was the belief that the world was flat, slavery, or any other number of examples, if you have a tendency to simply accept the status quo and what society dictates, you’re setting yourself up to be horribly wrong. Today’s rant is about this idea. The concept that you should fight the power. Or at least, fight to think outside the status quo of the power. Because, as it turns out, the power is almost always wrong! Be a free thinker! America was built upon the basis of free thought, not free press, so exercise the muscles of thought that will allow you to see beyond the society’s status quo and into reality. “Anyone who doesn’t question the status quo is in severe danger of being very wrong. It’s proven throughout history” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Almost everybody cares about money more than they would want you to know Become a free thinker, and think for yourself The real basis of America is free-thought, not free press. So be a free thinker! Conventional thinking will get you conventional results Anyone who doesn’t question the status quo is in severe danger of being very wrong. It’s proven throughout history Fight the system, and stand up for what you believe in and what you believe is right Society is almost never right Learn more about your ad choices.

Check it out here: Soundcloud.com/TaiLopezShow “Winning is one of the best ways to shut up haters” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) A lot of people are taught that meekness is essential.
