This guy is an entrepreneur which owns 20 multi-million dollar businesses (you can read more about him here), but that’s not the reason I’m naming him here. He gets to be in my Successful People category because of the mindset he has. I love the fact that most of these rich folks had almost no intention in getting rich (at least, that’s what they say). They just have a dream, they make up a plan and they execute it.
Let’s get back to Mr. Lopez and his mindset. If you do some search on YouTube, you’ll see lots of videos where he shows his cars and his house and luxury things. Hold your thoughts and wait for the motive: he does it as a part of the educational process. Why? Because that’s what most of the people want so it’s a great strategy to draw the attention. After he draws the attention with all that bling-bling, he tries to teach what it takes to get them. Things like reading books, putting in tons of work and things like that are mandatory parts of the process of getting those bling-blingy stuff.
Our educational system doesn’t know how to draw the attention and that’s partly because the things that are taught there are not that interesting nor useful as it could and he knows that. He shows that there is no easy win in life and because of this, lots of things are required in order to get where people what to. Most of the people don’t even know where they want to go… they just want the expensive stuff. That’s ok too, I guess, but the work is still required.

My favorite rule is #6 (Invest in yourself). Since our lives start with us, it makes perfect sense for us to start improving our lives with improving ourselves. What’s your favorite rule?
