Richard Branson's Hurricane & The Imaginary World of Kanye West
How to remake the world in your own image
What is an entrepreneur? In this 67 steps, Tai Lopez explains his definition of the word as being someone who makes the world in their own image.
Think about the highly successful people throughout history, not just financially but in all areas like Dalai Lama, Gandhi, Mother Teresa. What do they all have in common? Well, they all saw the world in their own way, as if there were no obstacles and once the obstacles did come, they battled it!
Gandhi has a beautiful saying that stuck with me: "Be the change you want to see in the world" and in my opinion, the owner of Virgin Airlines, Richard Branson, did just that. He was stuck on an island where a hurricane was about to hit. There was pretty much no way out until Branson had the idea of chartering a small plane but the only problem was he didn't have the money for it. So, he sold tickets to people that were also stuck on the island and paid the plane, saving his and lot of other people's lives.
After the situation with the hurricane and possible death threat, Branson decided he never wanted to be in that position again and so he create Virgin Airlines! You can read his amazing journey on his book "Screw it, Let's Do It!".
If you have been paying attention, you can see that successful people don't chase money, they chase the things that would make their world better and easier. Most people are chasing what's more profitable and what has the opportunity to make the most money. You, on the other hand, will have to learn how to deviate from that type of mentality. Learn that the most money you will make will be in the things that matches up with your skill set, natural affinities, natural drive, natural ambitions and curiosity.
Tai provides a formula on how to figure your world out.Here it is:
1-Dream Big but Be Realistic
If you are a 35 year old who's just good at basketball, understand you will never make it in to major league. However, you can become a great coach, or become involved in the sport someway, somehow.
The process of remaking the world in your own image is your life. Stop trying to get to the end, the end is death and you don't need to rush to get there.
3-Be very specific in the definition of the BIG stuff (Health, Wealth, Love, Happiness)
Health - How would you maintain your health? Would you hire someone to help you plan your meals or maybe a personal trainer?
Wealth - What would your work be? What industry would you be involved in? How would the work be done on the day to day basis?
Love - Would you have more friends and family around? Would you get married? How would your social life be?
Happiness - Combine Health + Wealth + Love + Something greater than you. How would you help the world become a better place?
Take a couple of minutes to really think about this and remember, first watch then make but never just wonder!
