There are only a few billionaires in the world. 

And when we sit down and talk to them, we learn that that there is only one thing separating them and us. That is the level of hard work they were willing to put in, day in and day out.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by the billionaire to discuss what lies behind this work ethic.  As a young 20-something, after discovering that he was skilled at technology, Cuban founded his first company, MicroSolutions. Since then, he’s gone on to forging a net worth of over $3 billion. He is the star of Shark Tank, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, the author of How to Win at the Sport of Business, and a source of knowledge for all of us to tap into.

“I’d be lying if I said I knew I was going to be a billionaire or that I thought it was even possible. It never crossed my mind. I just found whatever it took to motivate me.” - Mark Cuban

“Not all crazy ideas are smart, but all smart ideas are crazy.” - Tai Lopez

There’s book smarts. 

And then there’s street smarts. We know which of these two we have more of, and what areas of the other we need to work on, but how exactly do we go about doing this? 

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the balance of street smarts and book smarts. When we lean too heavily in one direction, our skills become lopsided and as a result, our career trajectory may flatten. But if we can welcome both domains of knowledge into our daily lives, we are able to reach new heights. 

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how to manage these sometimes opposing forces, so you can maximize your potential!

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Be skeptical of people who claim to do things for purely altruistic reasons
  • Top executives like Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates are ruthless when they need to be
  • Street smarts is how well you navigate the real world, and wisdom is street smarts combined with book smarts
  • Agreeableness is flexibility, patience, gentleness, and forgiveness
  • Conscientiousness is diligence, prudence, organization, and perfection
  • This is the number one predictor of success in business
  • At their core, humans are risk-averse beings
  • Agriculture (not cars) is the most responsible factor for environmental degradation
  • Be careful of when you oversimplify, it’s neither just nature or just nurture
  • The biggest scams in America are the education and food systems
  • The spark of attraction is your body genetically registering reproductive health
  • Ask yourself how you solve problems when the situation is unfair
  • Language isn’t about grammar, rather it’s about communication 
  • Be careful of who you choose to have kids with

“Be firm with your beliefs. You will find people who try to move you to what they want to do. Resist. Resist. Resist.” - Tai Lopez

We all want to do everything. 

 

But when we try to attack this idea, we often get lost in the tsunami of action items. Do I open a business account? Build a website? Buy advertising? From the outside, this may look like stagnation. But the truth is that it’s part of the process, and we just haven’t distilled our goals down yet. This is the first step to forward progress. 

 

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are unpacking the essential components of effective time management. By uncovering the bare bones, we can more optimally approach our day-to-day and maximize what life has to offer.

“We’ve grown up in under an antibiotic umbrella where we think antibiotics are going to cover and cure everything.” - Dr. Martin Blaser

Health is more than a diet and exercise regimen. 

When we take a minute to examine our health from a more global perspective, the other factors of well-being surface. Our lifestyle, our habits, our mindset—these are the things that shape a person’s vitality.  

And on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Dr. Martin Blaser, the Director of The Human Microbiome Project at NYU’s School of Medicine, to discuss the dangers of antibiotic use. Dr. Blaser has 28 patents, and is the author of Missing Microbes, a book that examines how our species is devolving with the declining supply of microbes in our system.

Tune in to this conversation to capture an educated perspective of the whole health ecosystem!

“Our system is completely backwards. It’s a false economy. People are making a lot of money out of germaphobia.” - Dr. Martin Blaser

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Without microbes we would not be alive
  • There is evidence that our supply of microbes is disappearing
  • Evidence that this is at the root of the rising rates of autism, celiac disease, Alzheimer’s, etc. 
  • Most probiotics have not been tested in scientific studies over the long term
  • Kids who take on average more antibiotics than others turn out fatter
  • We only look at the benefits of antibiotics because doctors are too concerned about liability
  • Babies pick up their mother’s microbes in the birth canal
  • Rising rates of cesarean sections are preventing this from happening
  • 70 years ago, agriculture experts figured out that if you feed antibiotics to animals, they gain weight faster
  • Some cities have an antibiotics in their drinking water
  • Sweden uses 40% of the antibiotics we use
  • Epidemics come from the lack of diversity in our current living situations
  • Kids born by C-section are more prone to disease (celiac disease, juvenile diabetes, etc.)
  • The rate of juvenile diabetes is doubling every 25 years
  • A Denmark study showed that antibiotics increase risk of inflammatory bowel disease by 14% in kids
  • We’ve engineered a system where the doctor-patient relationship is sterile 
  • Antibiotics change the metabolism in adults 
  • We need better diagnostics to determine viral vs. bacterial infections
  • Food preservatives are antibacterials destroying our microbiome
  • Our good bacteria fights the bad bacteria; this is the problem with anti-bacterial products
  • Hospitals and doctors like C-sections because they’re scheduled
