I'm here in Palm Springs doing some work with my team and thought I would make a quick book of the day. I got asked if someone had a gun to my head and I was completely broke how I would make 1 million dollars? Here's my answer, "I would go out to a big market and I would take an idea that is working really well and bring it to a small market."

Have you ever asked yourself these questions:
How smart am I and does it even matter?
Do I need a high I.Q. to be rich?
Today's Book of the Day is, “Successful Intelligence: How Practical and Creative Intelligence Determine Success in Life” by Robert Sternberg.
Sternberg hypothesizes that I.Q is not a fixed measurement, the way it has been misunderstood for years, and he gives us a lot of insight into how IQ is changeable.
Can you answer these questions as a comment below?
1. What is a self defeating attitude that you have had towards your I.Q. or intelligence?
2. What is a negative expectation that others have put on you that you want to defy?

Eating almond butter while reading a good Book-of-the-Day on a beautiful California morning. The author of "Riveting" explains how you can make your message go viral (it takes real skill or you will be ignored and forgotten).
Jim Davies says you have to understand 6 things about the human brain to win friends and influence people:
#1. We are interested in stories about humans...
#2. We pay particular attention to things we hope or fear are true…
#3. We delight in finding patterns...
#4. We are attracted to incongruity, apparent contradictions, novelty, and puzzles...
#5. The nature of our bodies—the nature of our eyes and other sense organs, affects what kinds of things draw us...
#6. We have certain psychological traits, many of which are evolved, that make us like and dislike, believe and disbelieve....
So when you speak, write, and interact with other people make sure you utilize all 6 of these to compel, fascinate, and persuade everyone you meet...

For today's book of the day, I chose "Man Alone with Himself" by Friedrich Nietzsche. He says that everybody aspires to be set apart from the crowd. What do you have to do to become great, to not be just another blip on the radar? In the book, Nietzsche says, "Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies." Too many people create strong convictions and stick with them without ever challenging the idea. You must challenge your convictions if you want to grow.
Here are three action points to take:
1. What resonated most with you form this video?
2. What is an action point that you can take from this video?
3. What is a conviction that you need to challenge?

Today I was reading "On the Shortness of Life" by Seneca and I was thinking about one of the 8 ways he says people waste time, "going after no fixed goal." You must have an end goal. Time is limited, you have to know how to use it properly.
Can you answer these three questions?
1. What is your end game goal?
2. What frivolous activity are you doing?
3. Which area of your life is going to make you more of a philosopher?

A lot of you are probably interested in self-help. One of the best idea's in self help comes from Socrates who said "Know Thyself".
Here are 3 ways to know yourself:
1. It's not natural
2. Some of what you think about yourself will be delusional and some of that is ok
3. Define what areas you need to know about yourself
Do you know yourself?

I just talked with John Lee, self made millionaire, about how to he made his money. He thinks that you become a millionaire in your mind before you actually become a millionaire in the real world.
You need to get in a mental positive loop to reach your goals.
I really agree with something else he said, "pay for the best advice you can afford, because you will lose more money on your mistakes."
I talk about that in Step #19, "Amazon.com & The $32,000 Brain Budget." Check it out here: http://goo.gl/myE0zy

In today's book of the day we are going to dive deep as I try to break down an absolute masterpiece by Sigmund Freud called "Civilization and Its Discontents".
This book probably has more insight word for word than any other book I've ever read. You are going to learn why asking "What is the meaning of life?" is probably the wrong question to ask and why it is impossible for you to experience happiness at all times because lack of happiness is mandatory to experience happiness.
If you want 67 in depth talks like this about ideas from people like Dr. Freud and you want the most important book you could ever read for free check this out http://goo.gl/AYoERC
