Step 1: The Billionaire’s Brain and Jennifer Lopez’s Voice

The Big Idea: To get what you want, you have to deserve what you want.  Awareness is key to success.  If you’re not successful, be self-aware enough to understand why.

  • The good life = health, wealth, love, and happiness.
  • To get what you want, you have to deserve what you want.  the world is not a crazy enough place to reward a bunch of undeserving people. —Charlie Munger

  • There is a time to stop and smell the roses but it’s not all time. —Joel Salatin
  • Jennifer Lopez does not have a great voice but she’s an amazing entertainer and that’s why she’s successful.
  • Ask yourself, who would you not bet on?  And don’t be that person.
  • Ideas don’t make you rich.  Successful people often borrow from others and improve.
