Step 5: My Poor Friends & Cameron Diaz’s Parrot

The Big Idea: Study how successful people think.  

  • Don’t pick your friends based on their success, but be selective about which friend’s advice you listen to.
  • Pay attention to how your more successful friends think and how your less successful friends think.
  • Like parrots, successful people repeat quotes all the time (not their own opinions.)
  • Successful people ask for other people’s opinions all the time.
  • I’ve never had an original idea in my life.  I just go to smart people and copy their ideas. —Joel Salatin
