“Emotional intelligence is knowing how to control your own emotions in sync with also reading how others feel about you.” - Tai Lopez

Great marketing requires a storytelling finesse.

This is because audiences are smart, and can detect the tricks you might be trying to play. Say your video’s call-to-action is too explicit; a viewer will see that and turn the other way. Or if the product’s need is not rooted in enough emotional weight, the potential customer might not feel incentivized enough to purchase. Whatever the case may be, the cure to this is to tell relatable stories.

A relatable story is an emotional story. From the failure stories to the love stories, if the core of the messaging is rooted in something that the viewer or reader can relate to, the storytelling becomes much easier. No longer are you tiptoeing through the tripwires in the potential customer’s head; he or she is on the same page and will inevitably feel motivated to buy your product.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are taking a close look at relatability. In a conversation with my brother, we discuss all things related to storytelling, marketing, and interpersonal relations. How can you be more relatable in each of these domains is the question we answer in today’s episode.

“Anything you can do to make people see themselves in your story will automatically connect them with you. Next time a police officer pulls you over, make him see himself in the driver’s seat.” - Tai Lopez

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Being real is being relatable
  • When trying to get what you want, present your need in a way that people can relate to
  • The Kardashians are successful because their family dysfunction, at its core, is relatable
  • Love is the most relatable theme in any marketing or storytelling material
  • Everyone can relate to being hurt, and the vulnerability that creates
  • You have to make the person see yourself in your shoes
  • People relate to the failure story; another reason to launch businesses and fail, it will help you relate in the future
  • Emotional intelligence is the soft skills, far different than the IQ they teach in school
  • If you’re ever losing the crowd, say “I want to tell a story about someone close to me who betrayed me”
  • Optimism bias causes a person to believe that they are at a lesser risk of experiencing a negative event compared to others

“If you get too far behind financially in your life, it’s almost impossible to catch up.” - Tai Lopez

You can either be right or rich.

So if you’re not rich, then you’re most likely holding onto your opinions too strongly. You’re doing this because you’re afraid of being proved wrong. Well, in educating yourself by listening to others, you learn that you are wrong. And the moment when you accept this is the start to a life of wealth.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing how to go from rags to riches through self-education. When you pursue profit, the first step is making sure you have your head on straight. What industry are you tackling? What specific niche are you going to carve out? What are you going to do different than the competitors? Tune in today to learn how to approach the path to financial freedom!

We all have side hustles.

But are these things we do with our spare time actually making us money or just wasting our time?

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by The Altman Brothers. In 2008, after the market collapsed, they moved out of their multi-million dollar mansion into two-bedroom apartment. Now, in the past 5 years, they’ve sold over $2 billion in property. How they achieved their success was through a unique type of hustling that involved walking the hills of Hollywood and talking to the people standing in line at Starbucks. Tune in to learn their tricks and take your hustling mindset to the next level!

“The problem is we have not structured our medicine to look at it in a holistic, global way.” - Dr. Kim

(click to tweet)

You can’t stop aging.

And that’s a good thing. There are many important benefits that come from aging. Our brain develops, our muscles form, and our systems mature. But at some point during the aging process, it turns on us and our body begins to break down.

Right now, depending on the ailment, we respond with treatment. Physical therapy for the injured back, blood-thinners for hypertension, and a new diet for diabetes. But scientists today are learning how to respond before the ailment presents itself. And as our technology continues to grow exponentially more powerful, the question of, “Can we live to 700?” becomes less and less unreasonable.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by gerontologist Dr. Paul H. Kim MD to discuss how realistic living to 700 will be. Dr. Kim’s expertise in genetics, aging, and hematology helps us determine how to best approach aging in the healthiest way possible.

“If half of your lifespan is met with chronic diseases that you’re dealing with and ailing with, are you really enjoying life or able to be functional?” - Dr. Kim

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Clean your blood and look what’s occurring at your cellular level
  • The problem with lab testing is we’re responding to the results as parameters to treat you

  • Diabetes and hypertension can be noticed far before the manifest (pre-hypertension and pre-diabetes)
  • Look at your genetic makeup to find out where to start your regimen
  • We are 1% human and 99% bacteria
  • Hormones are important for signaling in our aging
  • Hormones are more than testosterone: thyroid, cortisol, human growth hormones, insulin
  • Studies show that managing sleep, stress management, physical activity, and diet/nutrition is equivalent to the potency of pharmaceutical medication
  • VO2 max training looks at how efficiently your system burns calories
  • We aren’t creatures of intellect, we are creatures of movement
  • Heavy lifting activates hormone release
  • Telomere study tells us that there is a finite number of divisions to each cell
    • This is called “the hayflick limit”
  • New DNA technology uses microscissors to alter DNA code
  • Studies show young blood plasma transplants rejuvenates older patients
    • In plasma, it’s the mixture of beneficial molecules
  • At some point stem cells will enable us to build organ tissue to replace our decaying organs
  • We used to think stem cells were irreversible but new technology allows them to be engineered in multiple directions
  • Look at oxidative stress markers for indication of risk to cancer
