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

Step 5:

To mix it up a bit I decided to give you a little glimpse of what other people thought about step 5 of Tai Lopez’s 67 Steps with my buddy Phil.

I liked the bit about Cameraon Diaz’s parrot because it funny, but it make sense.  Rich people repeat and talk about ideas of people who are richer, or famous instead of talking about their own ideas.


My friend Neil is always struggling with his $$ and I notice that he spends so much time facebooking about his opinions and complaining about his personal issues.

It’s almost time to just block him out, because I don’t want to have to read that stuff.  My best friend is the richest person I know, he makes more than double what my wife and I make together and then some.  When we hang out, he never talks about issues, or complains, or starts many sentences with I..  On the other hand, I’m thinking I’m the poor friend.  I talk about myself often, instead of the newest book I read.  Damn.

As you can tell from reading my other posts such as Step 3 or 4 that I’m very hard on myself. As you should be because believing everything is your fault is always better than just making excuses for everything.
