“Build on your strengths, rather than trying to get a different strength” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

People are much closer to their side hustle than they think. A lot of people think that they need to acquire new skills in order to start a side hustle, but the reality is that most people already have a fantastic skill, probably several, that could be turned into a side hustle.

Today, we’re talking with Chris Guillebeau about the 3 ways you can start building a side hustle immediately. Procrastination is the killer of hopes and dreams, so there really is no reason to wait, and Chris talks us through the 3 ways that you can start earning money on your own terms today.

Don’t forget, you can listen to The Tai Lopez Show on Spotify! Click “Follow” and let me know what you think.


“Procrastination is the killer of hopes and dreams” -Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Build on your strengths, rather than trying to get a different strength
  • Everyone's an expert in something, they just don’t always know it
  • Brainstorm through the things you’re good at, write them all down, to organize your potential ideas
  • Get things out in the world, even if you feel like it’s not ready, because you probably won’t ever think it’s ready
  • Procrastination is the killer of hopes and dreams
  • Some of those closest to you will become the people who mess up your world the most, because the will externalize their own paranoia
  • Don’t project your own insecurities about yourself on other people
  • If you can come up with $100, you can change your life financially
  • People are often looking for a way to remove all insecurity in their life, but that is the wrong goal
  • Understand the cycles that will always come

3 Ways the Average Person Can Start a Side Hustle

1- Look at the skills you already have, rather trying to get a new skill

2 - Don’t just have idea, go from idea to OFFER. The promise. How will this change your life?

3 - Launch before you think you’re ready

I’m answering your questions about how to get money, what to do with it once you have it, and how and why to start investing early. We’re talking about why reading people is an essential skill to earning more, as well as how to do it. A lot of people like to talk about how money isn’t everything, and they’re right.

So listen to this episode to learn more about money, how to make more of it, and how to manage it, to bring more freedom and happiness into your life. “Money isn't everything, but you will never have complete freedom if you’re broke” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Reading people is an essential skill to make more money Ask yourself how many hours per week you spend around someone who is 20 years ahead of you financially Spend as much time as possible around the people who are where you want to be financially You must know the language of the environment that you are in When you meet people, especially if you want to be able to successfully interact with people, you need to be able to read them and speak directly to them Being able to adapt quickly will be essential to making money in the modern world The most incredible brands in the world have died from an inability or an unwillingness to change You have to put in time and effort to find mentors in your life Money isn't everything, but you will never have complete freedom if you’re broke Setup automated withdrawals from one bank to another, and make it a pain to access the second account, so that you automatically save Get started investing and making smart money decisions even if you have a very small amount of money to work with When you’re broke, don’t try to live like you’re rich Things like fear and negative thoughts tend to make it far more difficult to make money If you want to make more money, you have to have energy If you feel depressed, do not hang out with other depressed people Make sure you’re around a variety of different people Use technology to approximate mentorship with podcasts, youtube videos, etc Learn more about your ad choices.

“If people like your vibe, they will be likely to buy from you” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

To be successful in anything in life takes an ability to sell, or more generally to be persuasive. Whether your focus is business, or even if you’re simply deciding where to go out tonight and have to convince your friends of your idea of where to go, you’re going to be selling.

Today’s episode digs into the specific techniques in sales that will take you from not knowing what you’re doing and having a low level of persuasion, to having the ability to effectively persuade others, and so be able to lead your best life and see the success you are desiring in it.

“Enthusiasm will go a long ways in sales” Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Good salespeople start with questions, bad salespeople start with features
  • You can’t sell the solution if you don’t know what the need/problem is
  • Keep the prospect talking as much as possible
  • People hate silence on the phone, if you leave silence, people will start to reveal more and more about themselves
  • Choose which “frame” you want to use to show why someone should buy from you
  • Salespeople have to have incredible amount of positiveness in their attitude
  • Enthusiasm will go a long ways in sales
  • Even genius people are not super logical. You have to appeal to emotions
  • If people like your vibe, they will be likely to buy from you

“You have to be able to see possibilities before you pursue possibilities” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Your potential will be what you decide it is. The reality is that what holds most people back is their own mindset. If you think you have unlimited potential, within your circle of competence, you really do have unlimited potential within that circle.

The circle of competence refers the range of things that you are really competent in. For instance, if you are not at all naturally athletic, you do not have unlimited potential in athletic pursuits. But provided you have a certain level of competence within a pursuit or skill, your potential is probably only being limited by what you mindset is.

So increase the range of your mindset, and what you believe is possible for you to achieve. As you do that, you will see your results begin to increase in kind.

Don’t forget, you can listen to The Tai Lopez Show on Spotify! Click “Follow” and let me know what you think!


“About 90% of the world only operates at 10% of their potential” -Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • You have to be able to see possibilities before you pursue possibilities
  • About 90% of the world only operates at 10% of their potential
  • Nothing happens unless you, at some point, really believe it is doable
  • There are a lot of things that are required to live a good life, but money is one of the most measurable
  • See risk as opportunity
  • Look for balance in your work life
  • 70% of billionaires did sales. It’s a great early education
  • Most of society is not ready or willing to learn
  • You have to believe it is possible before you can achieve it
  • Each thought starts to create a groove in your mind. As you continue to think negative thoughts, you reinforce bad mental habits that will keep you down
  • Your mental frameworks of thought will define what is really possible for you
  • You are not entitled to a good life, just the pursuit of a good life
  • If you solve problems, you will make money. The harder the problem you solve, the more money you will make
  • Understand your audience, and make an impression on them
  • Up your vocabulary to seem smarter
  • Whatever you can conceive, within your circle of competence, you can achieve
  • Find what’s working, and then double down
  • Obstacles are the sign that you’re about to make big money
  • Anything that is easy will likely not make much money
  • Make up for problems with volume
  • You will always have a job of you are not afraid of the phone

This week was all about learning how to live the best life you possibly can, on your own terms. This means thinking through very carefully what that specifically means for you, what is most important to you, and what you would like written on your tombstone, and then optimizing your entire life around that end-goal.

“Organisms that only learn through trial and error tend to die out”

  • Use the above biography test regularly to evaluate your decisions
  • The modern lifestyle gives us so much convenience that it’s almost like the life is sucked out of it

  • Go to places and categories where the smartest people are
  • To grow any physical business, make sure you get out to meet people in different categories
  • Organisms that only learn through trial and error tend to die out
  • Know what you want out of life, and optimize your life aggressively around that goal
  • You must understand the psychology of people, and know how to read them, if you want to be able to make money

“Spend at least a couple hours per day really thinking through what you’re doing in your life” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Unintended consequences often negate the good that a regulation or ruling in government is trying to do. In fact, often the problem that was supposed to be solved is simply magnified through the unintended consequences, and the same thing can be true for your life.

That is why I believe that entrepreneurs, and really everyone else as well, need to learn game theory, to understand the various ways in which their decisions will affect other people’s decisions, thereby potentially changing the outcome, and sometimes reversing the good you were trying to do with the decision in the first place.

Listen to this episode to learn more about game theory and how it can apply to the decisions you make.

Also, make sure to checkout the new Tai Lopez Flash Briefing on Alexa!


“In the modern world, you need to be careful not to be overstimulated” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • A lot of regulations have unintended side effects that must be considered
  • For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
  • Humans have a desire to simplify complex topic to understand them, with the result often being that the wrong conclusion is reached
  • Mother nature always laughs last
  • Entrepreneurs need to understand game theory
  • Always consider how your actions will be perceived by others, not just the immediate impact
  • The current education system encourages students to pump information into their brain and then dump it out once they finish the test
  • In the modern world, you need to be careful not to be overstimulated
  • Spend at least a couple hours per day really thinking through what you’re doing in your life
  • The human body is built to do HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training
  • It’s always better to sell to the willing

3 Reasons Most People Fail

Read more

“To be good in business, you have to be able to listen carefully and read people” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Stubbornness is a primary reason for most people’s inability to achieve what they want, and be successful on their own terms. When you are stubborn, you limit your opportunities. But the truth is that really good opportunities do not come around too often in life, so if you really want to be successful you have to seize them when they do, and take full advantage of them.

In addition, a lot of people are completely unwilling and even unable to see their own faults, because of their sensitivity to input and correction from others. When you are corrected, but all you can see or feel is how hurt you are that someone else doesn’t think you know everything, you are setting yourself up for failure.

Listen to this episode to hear the 3 reasons most people fail, and how you can avoid them, to achieve great things in your life.

“If things change, you acquire new evidence, you need to change and not be stubborn” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • The number 1 reasons people aren’t successful is because they are stubborn and unable to change
  • To be good in business, you have to be able to listen carefully and read people
  • Most people are completely unwilling to change their routine
  • If things change, you acquire new evidence, you need to change and not be stubborn
  • By being stubborn, you limit your opportunities
  • Do not be overly optimistic. Very few lives are full of opportunities, so seize them when you do
  • Many people are overly sensitive to advice or correction

“Good eating lifestyle is not a diet, because it’s not limiting. It’s a lifestyle” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

The Gracie Diet is an eating lifestyle, developed by the Gracie family of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fame, and designed to combine the correct foods with each other, to give you energy and health to accomplish what you want in life.

But even more fundamentally, in this episode I talk about why it is important to be willing to experiment. Those who have done incredible things have always been willing to experiment, to try things out and see if they work, and whether that’s diet, lifestyle, habits, or anything else, everyone is different, and so experimentation is often the only way you can know if something is right for you specifically.


“When starting a new lifestyle, take it slowly and in stages” -Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • The fuel you put in your body is going to affect your performance in a powerful way
  • Most people don’t pay nearly enough attention to how certain foods make them feel
  • Many people are guided almost entirely by the pleasure of eating
  • Good eating lifestyle is not a diet, because it’s not limiting. It’s a lifestyle
  • Most people lack potassium in their diet
  • Eat fruit for dessert
  • A 24 fast once per month is a great cleanse
  • If you write down everything that you eat, you will realize that you’re not eating the way you want
  • When starting a new lifestyle, take it slowly and in stages
  • Make sure you hang out with people who eat similarly to the way you want to eat, because it will affect you greatly
  • Be constantly willing to try out different things, to find out what works for you
  • Willingness to experiment is extremely important to success
  • Take naps

The 5 Crucial Rules to Public Speaking

Podcast cover
Read more

“When you’re trying to get people’s attention, speak fast. When you’re trying to get people’s trust, speak slow.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Most of us are scared of public speaking.


But that’s only because we have yet to have a good experience getting in front of an audience. The stage fright and perceived threat of embarrassment makes us content with staying inside our comfort zone.


If we’re not careful, this level of content can persist throughout our lives, leaving us in a position of never facing our fears.


That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are breaking down the 5 rules of powerful public speaking. From mastering emotional transference to understanding the different levels of cadence, this toolset gives us a framework to reference the next time we get in front of an audience.


Tune in to this episode, so you can start to cease the speaking opportunities that are presented to you!

“Humans, by their very nature, don’t trust other people.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind


  • Understand evolutionary psychology and risk-aversion to become a good public speaker
  • Slow down your speech if you start to feel anxiety or nervousness
  • Find that balance between improvisation and preparation
  • “Builder” personality-types like to listen to more structured speaking styles
  • Master emotional transference, the act of transferring your strongly held beliefs to another perosn
  • Understand that the only thing words are good for is transferring emotions
  • Pursue your life with logic ahead of anything else
  • What makes you a great speaker is the same that makes you great at anything: practice

“Build on your strengths, rather than trying to get a different strength” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

People are much closer to their side hustle than they think. A lot of people think that they need to acquire new skills in order to start a side hustle, but the reality is that most people already have a fantastic skill, probably several, that could be turned into a side hustle.

Today, we’re talking with Chris Guillebeau about the 3 ways you can start building a side hustle immediately. Procrastination is the killer of hopes and dreams, so there really is no reason to wait, and Chris talks us through the 3 ways that you can start earning money on your own terms today.

“Procrastination is the killer of hopes and dreams” -Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Build on your strengths, rather than trying to get a different strength
  • Everyone's an expert in something, they just don’t always know it
  • Brainstorm through the things you’re good at, write them all down, to organize your potential ideas
  • Get things out in the world, even if you feel like it’s not ready, because you probably won’t ever think it’s ready
  • Procrastination is the killer of hopes and dreams
  • Some of those closest to you will become the people who mess up your world the most, because the will externalize their own paranoia
  • Don’t project your own insecurities about yourself on other people
  • If you can come up with $100, you can change your life financially
  • People are often looking for a way to remove all insecurity in their life, but that is the wrong goal
  • Understand the cycles that will always come

3 Ways the Average Person Can Start a Side Hustle

1- Look at the skills you already have, rather trying to get a new skill

2 - Don’t just have idea, go from idea to OFFER. The promise. How will this change your life?

3 - Launch before you think you’re ready

“It’s ok to be a little eccentric, but know where it becomes a problem” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

As you go through life, you come to the realization that many people have serious psychological problems. Whatever metric or system you use to measure psychological issues, you will find that a very large number of the people that you run across exhibit those traits.


But times reveals everything, so when it comes to deciding the people you will have relationships with, whether personal or business, give it some time. It’s easy for someone to pretend to be someone that they are not for a few weeks or a few months, but try to give it a year to make sure you know who they really are.


Then, understand that everyone has a little weird in them. Everyone has a different mix of character traits, with desirable and less desirable aspects mixed in. Just make sure the weirdness doesn’t out-weigh the rest too much. Allow for the mix in your relationships, as long as it’s not overboard.

“Three things that will mess you up: Pride, stubbornness, and being overly sensitive” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Probably about 70% of people that you will run into have serious psychological issues
  • If you don’t understand psychological issues, you might start second-guessing yourself and thinking that you’re the one with issues
  • The dark triad is one way to understand psychological issues of varying degrees
  • It’s ok to be a little eccentric, but know where it becomes a problem
  • Three things that will mess you up: Pride, stubbornness, and being overly sensitive
  • A lot of times pride expresses itself as anger
  • Often, stubborn people come across as very nice, but do not act on advice
  • Everybody is allowed to be a little weird. Maybe 20%. Just not too much
  • The first step in progress is massive awareness
  • Be careful about all new relationships. Time reveals all, so give it time to understand who people really are
  • Be honest with yourself. Admit who you are and your weakness. And see if maybe you should get a pro to help you, and see a psychologist

“When everything is unpredictable in your life, you’ll have no brain power left to innovate” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Making money with social media is a lot more doable than most people think. It comes down to having a good understanding of human nature, understanding the technology, and then testing and iterating.

Today, we’re speaking with experts in all areas of branding, about the specific steps that are required to make money with social media. Whether you want to make money with your own social media accounts or by managing other people’s socials, this episode will show you the way forward.

One last note: We’re up on Spotify! Make sure to head over to Spotify and listen to The Tai Lopez Show over there!


“Be careful about making too much money too fast. You might not know how to handle it” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • If you want to make money with anything in your life, you need to become a master of systems
  • When everything is unpredictable in your life, you’ll have no brain power left to innovate
  • To make money with social media, start by selling other people’s products
  • Do collaborations with other influencers to get started building your social media
  • Vlogging is the future on all social media platforms. Tell your story
  • Smart work always beats hard work. But do both
  • Part of execution is strategy
  • When something is good enough, launch it. Then, innovate and improve as you go
  • If you don’t launch with errors, you waited too long
  • Spend 70% of your time on stuff that works now, 20% on things that you’re pretty sure will work but you’ve never done, and 10% on hair-brained, crazy ideas
  • Never be the first, or last, to an idea
  • Be careful about making too much money too fast. You might not know how to handle it

“Don’t try to please everyone. Just do you” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

It feels like the level of narcissism in the world is continually increasing. Just take a look at your Instagram feed, and you will see it proudly on display. It seems like nothing is more important to people today than themselves and their looks.

Maybe it’s time to take a step back and reevaluate our emphasis. Put more effort into the truly important things in life, and less into the ones that don’t matter. Put less effort into how you look, and more into what you do.

At the end of the day, you can’t please everyone, so don’t worry about it. Just do you, and do good in the world.


“Be willing to experiment. Don’t be close-minded” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Don’t try to please everyone. Just do you
  • Narcissism is everywhere. People think it’s all about them
  • Be willing to experiment. Don’t be close-minded
  • You need a small amount of narcissism to improve yourself. But it seems like it’s out of control these days
  • We need to become more curious people about many things

“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

“Age is irrelevant. You don’t know when you’re going to die.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


People lie, but numbers don’t.

As our businesses and brands grow, we attract more and more people into our network. These individuals will have things to say about our success, and if we’re not careful, we can become distracted by that external noise and lose focus of what’s actually important.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are debating a hater online. When we acknowledge the peanut gallery, we gain insight into the lapses in judgement in those around us. Thus, we are able to move forward with a more accurate vision for our future.

“If you’re ruthless, you want a recession to happen.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Ask yourself what the most famous people in the world have done for you
  • You want businesses that move in the opposite direction of the economy (inverse correlation)
  • The stages of capitalism: recession, expansion, bubble, and then repeat cycle
  • A recession happens about once every 7 years
  • Understand that you can make more money at that bottom if you’re ruthless
  • Normal unemployment rates are at 5-6%
  • People lie, but numbers don’t

“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.

  • 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
