The Tai Lopez Show

In today's book of the day, I'm going to talk about one of my all time favorite books "All Quiet on Western Front" by Erich Maria Remarque.

Remarque remarks, "To 'forget' is the secret of eternal youth. One grows old only through memory. There is much too little forgetting"

This is coming from a guy who survived the first world war, where a million men would die in a single battle, within a single week. Men would literally get their faces blown off and climb out of the trenches knowing that two thirds of them would die from enemy gunshots. 

Growing up with certain Judeo-Christian influences, I remember a quote along the lines of "You must become like a little child before you can enter the kingdom".

So...practical takeaways: be like Warren Buffet and deeply ponder. Have your time when you mourn and you weep. But then learn to move on. Learn the lesson, but then forget it so you can remain eternally young.

Leave a comment here. Or reach out on @Tailopez if you're on Twitter. Ask yourself "What is a memory that you're better off forgetting? What is a memory that is making you old, stressing you out and dragging you down?

Remember, forgetting is the secret to eternal youth.

You have probably heard that you have to rely on yourself and not others. Or that you should have enough inner power to be strong on your own. In today's Book-Of-The-Day I discuss a book that debunks this mentality and a lot of the group think that you and I learned growing up. 

 

"The Power of Others: Peer Pressure, Groupthink, and How the People Around Us Shape Everything We Do" by Michael Bond shares the newest research that we will be happiest when we have a lot of friends. But the key is that they have to be an exact type of friend to really help you find the good life.

 

In 2008, 2 social scientists, Christakis & Fowler found that, "... most people will not be surprised that people with more friends are happier, but what really matters is whether those friends are happy."

 

The book also explains, "Four decades of research into how people decide to do what they do has shown that we are highly susceptible to the winds of social influence - indeed it is impossible to escape them, short of living in hermitic isolation (and even that may not immunize us...)."

 

Listen in as I explain the detailed nuances of what you will need to know to improve your social life.
