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

Narcissists are everywhere.

Today, more than ever before, the ego is inflated. With the rise of social media, our smartphones have become devices that pump our self-esteem through Instagram likes. If we rely to heavily on this for our self-worth, we run the risk of falling into the trap of narcissism.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing narcissism and other personality traits. When we take personality tests, we can then decide where to push our efforts for self-improvement. Listen to this episode to learn how to detect the narcissists around you, and then best navigate their complex personality.

The problem isn’t the amount of time in a day.

“A high utilization rate hurts your credit score as much as missing a payment.” - Stephen Liao

Banks are willing to lend us credit cards.

With these credit cards, our purchasing power increases. We are able to purchase the things we want, as long as we pay the bank back. But these credit card companies also incentivize us to purchase more with bonuses and gifts. So the question becomes: how can we use these free perks to pay off our credit cards?

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, Stephen Liao teaches us how to sift through the world of credit card perks to be able to do just this. Stephen dropped out of Stanford to figure out the credit card game just a year ago, and today he has a credit-limit that exceeds $3 million spread across 220 different credit cards. If he’s not flying first-class, he’s on a private jet. And if he’s not staying at the Waldorf Astoria, he’s at the Ritz-Carlton. Tune in today to learn his secrets on building a good credit score!

“Essentially, it’s legal money laundering. You pay off your credit card with cash equivalence, get your sign up bonus, and then pocket the $150.” - Stephen Liao

“Humans aren’t really logical. They just think they are.” - Tai Lopez

We get stuck in our routine.

It’s inevitable that between a full-time job, demands at home, and extra-curricular activities, we can become robotic as we tend to each commitment and obligation. This predictable behavior can feel comfortable and yield a healthy paycheck, but if we’re not careful, we can become confined by it.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing interruption patterns. In our society of comfort and predictability, our days become clones of the previous. In order to break the norm, we must seek out experiences and wakeup calls that interrupt our traditional modes of thinking. When we do this, we can induce that growth and change we have always wanted. Suddenly, we are starting the business that’s been sitting in the back of our head instead of talking about it.

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how to go towards the interruption patterns in your life, so you can start your path to financial freedom!

“Not being connected to the natural cycles that we evolved to be in is the biggest problem.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

We are stuck in our bubbles.

In the modern world, we get trapped in the sterile nature of highly industrialized life. From working in an office to sleeping in an apartment, our days are spent in air-conditioned units, away from the natural environment we evolved to be in.

By understanding their methods of living, we can tap into their secrets for happiness, and apply those to our lives. Tune in to this episode to learn how to approach your day-to-day in this most natural way, so you can connect with your evolutionarily built hardwiring.
