Thoughts On Tai Lopez?

30 posts in this topic

I have seen his ads on youtube and watched some of his videos but the fact that he always appears partying and living a luxury life makes me feel a little suspicious about him.

What do you think?

I prefer youtubers who tell me that under no circumstances I will make money by watching their videos......... @Leo Gura :D

Not guys who need to draw on board concepts that a 4-year old would understand if spoken... and then go ahead to talk about their products for another hour.

He has some personality, but if you'd write down on paper what he says in one of his videos... There is nothing of content in any single one. Just catchy surface touching borrowed sketches of very popular ideas. Why waste time.

Here:

 

What he says for 16 min: successful people are nice.....

 

Chicks in background...

I don't even know why I took time to talk about him.

I have got his 67 steps. I listened to the first 8 so far, just had not time to finish all of them yet. The impression that his material gives me is that he didn't prepare well enough before recording it. Kind of like he woke up and said "lets talk about XYZ" , kind of like telling you "Hey pal, with my high status I don't have time to make the best content ever for you, but it is cheap". Leo's free videos are much deeper. But despite that Tai is more superficial than Leo I believe you must listen to Tai too. See, every guru out there has it's own focus and he will talk about what hurts him most. Tai is also more practical than Leo, he will talk you about ROI , and many stuff about business. Tai has also read a lot of books and he is a walking encyclopedia, so you definitely can learn a lot from him. You just have to be smart enough to identify what is good and what you want to keep and what is not. That easy.

The end  justifies  the means. Orange. For some it might be interesting.

I like Phil Smy's (non-glowing) recommendation - that basically it's $67 and if you go through it you should get more than $67 worth of value out of it. He characterizes Tai as a curator of information is opposed to some guru you should follow. I will probably get it even though I'm sure there's some overlap with other sources that are on my radar like Brian Johnson. 

I agree with Nulik - Leo's free content is way better organized, methodical and prepared. Leo is way more deliberate and mindful...

Of course, compared with the topics Leo talks about, Tai Lopez's videos are less valuable in terms of what really matters. On the other hand, he's actually doing a great job pushing personal development to the masses.

He "speaks the same language" as the majority of the population. You won't hook the masses in by talking about enlightenment or the ego. These things are simply out of their ball court.

Now, show them lamborghinis and hollywood parties in big mansions and you'll grab their attention. Hell, they might even pick up a book and read it just because they associate such success with learning.

Once they start walking the path towards wisdom, I would imagine, they  will naturally gravitate towards more deeper topics. Tai himself isn't some sort of a moron who simply stumbled upon his success. He knows what he's talking about, to a degree and on certain topics, but I think his purpose is to simply make people more aware about he importance of knowledge...in his garage.

@JoseM Tai looks super fake and autistic. I don't know why but he comes off as very inauthentic in all of his videos. If people say he's charismatic im like "u joking? This guy cant even hold an eye contact."

I bought his 67 steps program when it was first launched, it was 5$ back then. His videos were good and they got me out of the rut. He is the one person who got me to work more on myself. I am an avid reader so his ideas about importance of reading books and a lot of suggestions for good books resonated with me. That was 2 years ago.

In the meantime he has completely changed his approach and things he does. He is even contradicting himself in many instances:

1) Often quotes Daniel Kahneman saying that if your income in US is over $75 000 more money doesn't increase your happiness. He also says work as much as you can like 18 hours a day or something and then he sells programs that can make you $100 000 a month. So if you fulfill money's role in creating happiness in one months why would you work remaining 11 months? In that case work doesn't contribute to your hapiness.

2) He often talks about how investing in cars is not good since those are the goods that rust, rot and depreciate and then he flaunts cars all over his videos. Because people are materialistic and equate cars with sucess and happiness.

3) He often says that you should build your skills for a long time and work on them constantly, Mastery concept, including  to become rich and all and then he offers you get rich quick shortcuts.

He has that typical American thing, Mother Theresa good, read what she did so you become good too and improve the quality of your life. Also he is against meditation since Confucius "meditated" a whole day and said after that something like Answers are not within us, they are outside, in books (I am paraphrasying).

Bottom line, I will always be grateful for start he gave me :)

@Morten 1. Well, it says that money doesn't make you any happier if you earn over 75k a year.  But if you can earn 200k a year and do what you love, which person would be happier? Money is kinda the fuel to do whatever it is you want to do. The thing that brings happiness in the latter case is doing what you love, the money itself does not bring that happiness, he talked about that yesterday on his Snapchat.

2. Well, he's not investing in those cars, he's using them for enjoyment, just as some people watches TV for enjoyment. So that's the difference there.

 

Overall I would say Tai is one of the best "motivators" for starting self-development (reading books and improving yourself) but I don't know about the "Get Rich" things. Sure he might be renting that house/cars or whatever, but he has the money to rent a big damn house in Hollywood Hills as well as renting some damn expensive cars for a long while. Doesn't really matter whether or not he rents them as he has enough money to rent them I mean, and who knows maybe he gets some good deals (aka it being cheaper than buying) and that's why he's renting them.
