Who is Tai Lopez?
At the age of 16, Tai received a letter from his scientist-grandfather explaining that there is no “secret formula” or shortcut to success in life.
He explained to Tai that the modern world is too complicated to find the answerers from any one person. Tai would have to seek his answers from a multitude of people and sources.
A week later, Lopez received a package from him grandfather, inside were 11 old books. The enclosed note simply said, “Start by reading these."
That day, Tai began his search for what he would later call the four pillars of life: health, wealth, love and happiness.
He began by reading thousands of books written by the important figures in history like Freud and Aristotle. He also traveled and spent two-and-a-half years living with Amish people, worked at an Indian leper colony and spent time with Joel Salatin, the pioneer of grass-fed, sustainable agriculture.
After becoming just another college dropout who was dead broke, Tai ended up back home with his mother. Through perseverance and patience, he eventually convinced five, multi-millionaire entrepreneurs to take him under their wings and mentor him.
With their guidance, Tai became a Certified Financial Planner. With the experience he gained in the world of finance, Tai began to appear on various TV and radio shows. He spoke at top global universities and created a successful podcast and developed videos for YouTube channels.
Having reached the level of success he had dreamed about, Tai decided to summarize all he had learned along the way into a series of ‘mentor shortcuts’ he named "The 67 Steps."
It’s a video course where Lopez talks about 67 important lessons he learned throughout his life. He teaches that by balancing your health, your wealth and your social life, you can achieve what he calls “The Good Life.”
Tai illustrates each step with personal stories from his life or with insights he picked up from reading books.
His 67 steps program is really a collection of common sense ideas gathered from the thousands of books he devoured, listening to the wisdom of intelligent men and women over the ages and gathering first-hind tools of success from various mentors he has worked with.
As billionaire Warren Buffett has said, “You only learn from mistakes, but they don’t have your mistakes. Let others make mistakes and learn from them.
The following are the first 5 steps of his 67 steps. They provide some insight as to what you can expect to learn by exploring the complete journey with Lopez.
1. Be Worth a Damn
To achieve the life you desire, you have to take necessary actions. Lopez says most people somehow think they’re entitled to “the good life” without putting in the hard work necessary to achieve it. They’re wrong!
Tell yourself you’re worth damn more success than what you have today and bet on yourself to achieve it. Take full responsibility for your life and do the things necessary to attain the life you desire.
2. Be Adaptable
In the dynamic environment we live in, people with only static skills will not thrive. Be in the lookout for changes and trends in the world and use them to your advantage.
Make your choices on a long-term basis. Be constantly aware of your current actions and surroundings.
Create a survival strategy for your life by keeping abreast of trends in politics, social and economic environs and new technologies.
3. Be Humble
Everyone has something valuable to offer. Humility comes from what we learn from others even if we think they have nothing of value to share.
Listen and learn from people who have achieved greater results than you. Spend your money on books and seminars, and try networking with mentors who are willing to help you. Avoid mistakes by tapping into the wisdom of great minds that have come before you.
4) Get A Mentor
Lopez claims that utilizing mentors will save you years of your learning curve. He teaches the law of 33 percent:
1. Spend 1/3 of your time to teach the ones you mentor.
2. Spend 1/3 of your time with people on your same level.
3. Spend 1/3 of your time with your mentors.
Look for people to be your mentors who are busy, aren’t full time teachers and actually make money using the talents and techniques they preach about.
5. Ignore The 99 Percent
Understand that most people (99 percent) form opinions based on social bias rather than their own thinking. Associate yourself with the one percent who are independent thinkers and who exhibit signs of expertise.
For instance, don’t take health advice from an overweight trainer or follow financial ideas given from someone who’s always struggling with their own finances.
Too many people think they know what they’re talking about when they really don’t. Try to go to the top people in an organization to get advice and cut out the middle men. Also, reading successful-selling books can be a valuable source of mentoring by copying their successes and adopting their ways of thinking.
