The 75 Best Tai Lopez Quotes – [Himself & Others from the 67 Steps]

BEST Tai Lopez Quotes - you have to deserve it

Here is my collection of the best Tai Lopez Quotes that I found online and gathered from his 67 Steps program.  He quotes a wide spectrum of incredible and influential people throughout history.  I’ve gathered these quotes from his program and then also gathered quotes from just him… in case you wanted both quotes – I’ve separated these below.

Sometimes Tai recrystallizes quotes from other people and provides a different interpretation.  I think when he does this that it’s really valuable because it puts some of these great quotes into a different light and helps us understand them better from a different angle.

If you want to know more about the 67 Steps Program, I’ve reviewed and summarized it here or if you are wondering if he’s a scam.

Most of his quotes comes from the books he reads, If you’re curious, here are the top books that Tai Lopez Recommends:

  1. Managing oneself by Peter Drucker
  2. How to Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie
  3. The selfish gene by Richard Dawkins
  4. Civilization and Its Discontents by Sigmund Freud
  5. The One Thing by Gary Keller
  6. Poor Charlie’s Almanack: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger by Peter Kaufman
  7. Disrupt you! Master Personal Transformation, Seize Opportunity, and Thrive In the Era of Endless Innovation by Jay Samit
  8. Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
  9. The Essential Drucker by Peter F. Drucker
  10. Awaken the Giant Within by Tony Robbins

Can’t find the time to read? Want to learn more in less time?

We all know that successful people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet constantly read books. The problem is that people can’t find the time nowadays to read the books they want.

TIP #1: To learn more in less time, I use a service called Blinkist and give it my highest recommendation. See my Blinkist review here to find out what it is and how I use it.

TIP #2: If you want to read more, you have to learn how to read faster. Another great tool I love using to increase my reading speed is 7 Speed Reading. It’s software teaches how to read the right way with the correct techniques and exercises. Definitely worth it if you want to drastically improve in this area.


Tai Lopez Quotes – Quoting others from his 67 Steps Program

“I constantly see people rise in life who are not the smartest, sometimes not even the most diligent, but they are learning machines. They go to bed every night a little wiser than they were when they got up and boy does that help, particularly when you have a long run ahead of you. Spend each day trying to be a little wiser than you were when you woke up. Discharge your duties faithfully and well. Step by step you get ahead, but not necessarily in fast spurts. But you build discipline by preparing for fast spurts. Slug it out one inch at a time, day by day. At the end of the day – if you live long enough – most people get what they deserve.”

-Charlie Munger


“The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities.”

-Stephen Hawking


“At the end of the day, most people get what they deserve. Your world is a reflection of who you are and what you deserve.  To get what you want, you have to deserve what you want.”


“When you are not practicing, remember, someone somewhere is practicing, and when you meet him he will win”

-Ed Macauley


Yes, change is the basic law of nature. But the changes wrought by the passage of time affects individuals and institutions in different ways. According to Darwin’s Origin of Species, it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself. Applying this theoretical concept to us as individuals, we can state that the civilization that is able to survive is the one that is able to adapt to the changing physical, social, political, moral, and spiritual environment in which it finds itself.
-Leon C. Megginson


” My greatest skill was being teachable. Even if I thought my coaches were wrong, I still tried to listen and learn something.”

“Good artists copy, Great artists steal”

– Pablo Picasso.


“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants”

-Sir Issac Newton


“You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?”

NKJV Matthew 7:16


You’ve gotta learn to love the grind. Because life IS the grind.

Be quick, but never hurry.

 “You can innovate out of any problem.” – Jeff Bezos Amazon CEO


If you chase after two rabbits, you catch none. – Chinese Proverb


“Don’t live other people’s dreams for you” – Chinese Proverb


“Know thyself” – Chinese Proverb


“Adversity makes men.  Prosperity makes monsters.”

– Victor Hugo


 “You can’t solve today’s problems with yesterday’s thinking”

Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.
– Picasso


“birds of a feather, flock together”


“Do not put off tomorrow, what you can do today” – Ben Franklin


“The answer is stuck in the balance”

– Aristotle



This planning can be applied to all aspects of our lives.  I love this Tai Lopez quote.

“Do what is difficult when it is easy.” – Lao Tsu


“The biggest tragedy in life, is being good at the wrong thing.” – Joel Salatin


People are frugal in guarding their personal property; but as soon as it comes to squandering time they are most wasteful of the one thing in which it is right to be stingy.

-Source: Brain Pickings


It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested. But when it is wasted in heedless luxury and spent on no good activity, we are forced at last by death’s final constraint to realize that it has passed away before we knew it was passing. So it is: we are not given a short life but we make it short, and we are not ill-supplied but wasteful of it… Life is long if you know how to use it.

“Do what is difficult when it’s easy”

– Lao Tsu

The enemy of Greatness is expectancy.  Planning for things that aren’t guaranteed – one of the simplest and best Tai Lopez quotes in my opinion.

“Today is the youngest you’ll ever be.”

Even More Tai Lopez Quotes!

Just when you thought that there weren’t any more Tai Lopez quotes!

Learn what makes people say yes. People value different things. Find what they like & use that to negotiate.

KSE: remember, after Knowledge you must Strategize and Execute.

Everyday wake up and say to yourself “I love my life.” Do it about 100 times under your breath.

It’s amazing what a little consistent brain training can do for your life.

Obsessed is a word used often by the lazy, in order to describe the dedicated.

The weakness of both intuition and logic is that logic can be too slow, and intuition can be too fast.

Rules of negotiation: let others air their opinions first to understand their values so you can see what to negotiate on.

To succeed you need a system of “carrots & sticks” – ways to motivate yourself by receiving rewards and avoiding punishment. You need both.

Predict and prevent. Predict and prevent. This is the key to avoiding trauma and huge mistakes…

Plan. Do. Double Check. Act.

Don’t let procrastination kill your hopes and dreams.

To do big things you have to insist on thinking things through… Thinking pretty hard to get the right answer and then acting on it…

You can always find time. You don’t get paid for making excuses.

Number one rule for becoming a millionaire; you gotta hang out with people who would be embarrassed for only making $1 million.

Number two rule for becoming a millionaire; whoever experiments the most usually wins. So you have to run through at least 100 to make money.

Remember, you can’t vote yourself rich (in money, love, or happiness)… It’s not politics that will improve your life.

Every day you have to think big & small. Bigger than you did the day before, but also smaller. If you don’t do both, you’ll get lost.

Never wait until it’s too late. Dont let tragedy be your only trigger for revaluation and action.

Increase your attention span. Your ability to concentrate predicts your long term success at almost anything.

Understanding personality types is the most important social skill you can have. If you understand people, you can influence them. In order to understand them, you must be able to analyze them.

If you’re unhappy in the modern world you have an “unfortunate misappraisal” of reality. Standards of living are higher than ever.

Focus on your goal and elevate your game and what you want will find you.

My favorite way to make money is while I sleep.

It’s harder to not be idiotic than most of us think.

It’s ok to have material things. Just be sure you invest most of your money in your brain (books, travel, consultants, mentors, courses, conferences, programs)…

I love listening to Charlie Munger say, “I know of no wise person who doesn’t read a lot.”

Everybody wants more out of life. Question is, what do you want?

As the saying goes, “faith without works is dead.” You gotta combine your faith with your actions.

My first mentor Joel Salatin said, “If you have to go on a vacation from your job, never come back.”

Never chase what you want. Elevate your game until what you want chases you.

It’s hard to predict what will be successful. The best approach is to experiment with products until you find what sticks.

When you make a mistake, sometimes the only way out is to walk away and never look back.

You have to be optimistic & just ignore some things. Like Ben Franklin said, “Keep your eyes wide open before marriage & half shut afterwards.”

When you find a better way don’t be stubborn. Like H. G. Wells said, “Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature’s inexorable imperative.”

The biggest puzzle you must figure out: the balance between how realistic vs. how idealistic you should be in life. What’s the balance?

One of the lessons I took from yesterday’s game is that life is about momentum. If things are going well in your life, don’t stop. Double down on what is working.

In the modern world it’s easy to be distracted instead of being grateful.

Want to be successful? Be nice.

One thing I’ve noticed with the successful. They don’t spend a lot of time on the past.

You have to be “impatiently patient.” Impatient to get started but patiently perseverant to finish what you started.

The right books always give you a great ROI.

Leaders are readers.

To get what you want, you must deserve what you want.

People have more theories on me than Albert Einstein had on the universe.

The amount of important life lessons not taught in high school is insane: how to read people, how to invest in the stock market, understanding extroverts vs introverts, real estate, how to break up with people, how to get investors…
