Everyone has great ideas. But ideas are nothing without implementation, and today’s episode is all about how to go from idea to reality. There are three very important steps to go from concept to reality, and you will learn about them on this episode.

But one of the most important, earliest steps, is the ability to get excited before getting started. While a lot of people can do this, many cannot, and it is essential to success. The reason for this is because understanding what motivates you, what excites you, and what makes you want to work, is the understanding that will help you achieve great things.

Learn more about how to take an idea all the way to reality and achieve success on today’s episode.

In order to be successful, you will have to learn how to efficiently and effectively manage yourself. This means you need to look into your daily schedule, find out what you are doing with your time, and then be purposeful about allocating that time to the specific activities that will move you forward toward your goals.

Today I’m going through how I break up my day, why I focus on just a few large chunks instead of many small chunks, as well as a deep dive into what you should look for in the very first business you start.

“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
