“I understand there’s a hierarchy. I don’t care that my mom told me I’m special. I understand that this person’s more special than me in this area, so I am going to listen to what they have to say.” - Tai Lopez

Becoming the best is not rocket science.
If you hang around someone great and ask questions, then pretty soon you will be adopting their habits via osmosis. This is how humans learn, but the education system makes us believe learning has to involve classrooms and memorization.
On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are taking a close look at how to be great. It’s something we all want but don’t know how to achieve. The good news is that the formula is simple but requires that we check our egos at the door and reflect honestly on why we haven’t achieved greatness just yet. Once we complete this step, the sky’s the limit.
