Millions of people on the internet follow the life and advice of investor, entrepreneur, and multi-millionaire Tai Lopez. To many people, he is a go-to source for financial advice and general motivation. His history alone has provided many people with inspiration, as he built himself up from practically nothing to become one of the most influential businessmen of this millennium.
But, to customize a common saying, greater lessons come from studying a person’s actions than from listening to their words. So let’s take a look at what we can really learn from this successful speaker’s life, history, and actions, and how those have translated to a financial success.
You Can’t Underestimate the Value of Books
While Tai spends plenty of time talking about how important books are, the proof of his words can be found in his actions. Tai himself reads an entire book every day, and he credits much of his success to his avid reading habit. It was a habit that he began when he asked his grandfather the answers to some of life’s most difficult questions. His grandfather responded by sending him a package of 11 books and a note that read, “Start by reading these.” It’s a habit that has persisted throughout his life, and it seems to have paid off.
Social Media Matters
Take a look around the internet, and you’ll notice that Tai Lopez is pretty much everywhere. He’s on every social media platform out there, and he’s accrued millions of followers and almost every single one of them. While you could argue that his reputation has been the cause, and the followers are the effect, evidence seems to indicate that his social media activity has a direct impact on his successes.
Looking through his profiles and podcasts, you’ll notice that he posts every single day on almost every platform. This level of engagement keeps people interested and earns you more followers. And followers become customers, if you know what you’re doing—and it seems like Tai knows what he’s doing.
Sharing Knowledge Is Good for You
It seems that a lot of business owners think that keeping knowledge to themselves is the way to go. And, in some cases, this might be true. After all, you don’t want to go around sharing your business’s greatest secrets with everyone in the industry. But when it comes to life lessons and general knowledge that you’ve accrued, paying it forward can really pay off.
Tai Lopez offers a complete course that is dedicated to sharing his knowledge and helping others achieve what he’s done. This course, known as The 67 Steps, has become one of his most successful endeavors.
Everyone Should Have a Brand
Most people think that a “brand” is something that only businesses have. But if you want to establish yourself as anyone with significant influence, then you need to build a brand around yourself. Tai has modeled this idea in his life by building a personal brand that people recognize around the globe.
When asked about his personal brand, Tai had this to say: “I built a personal brand around who I already am, instead of who I wanted people to see me as, and I think that’s where a lot of people go wrong. It has to be authentic, otherwise no one is going to get on board.”
This life habit has paid off for him, and can be applied to anyone who wants to have a strong presence on the internet—either as an individual or as a business. By branding yourself and making yourself easily recognizable, you’ll draw people in, and that can translate to income very quickly.
Studying the habits of successful individual can provide you with a blueprint for your own future success. What other successful individuals do you model your habits after?
