The 67 Steps by Tai Lopez (REVIEW)

What is The “67 Steps” Program?

The last couple of months I’ve stumbled upon something I’ve never come across before on the internet..

It’s a video course where Tai Lopez (An investor, entrepreneur and author) talks about 67 important lessons he learned throughout his life.

By balancing your health, your wealth and your social life you’ll reach a state of eudaimonia. Which is a fancy word for “excellent life quality” – or as Tai calls it; “The Good Life”

Tai illustrates each topic with personal stories from his life or insights he picked up from reading books.

And he has read quite a few… (5000+ )

67 steps review Tai Lopez books

The course is was completely free and you even got a additional copy of “Managing Oneself” by Peter Drucker to discover your personal strengths.

This course is gold

It this review I’m going to share the most important lessons I’ve learned from the course and how I plan to implement those steps into my life (the ones I’ve found relevant at least)

At the moment I’m at 16 19 21 different key lessons.

Note: These are my personal interpretations of what his 67 steps mean. Different conclusions are always possible.

Let’s go.

————————————————————-

1) Be Worth A Damn

67 steps review Tai Lopez be worth a damn

To deserve the life you want, you’ll have to do the actions that are necessary.

He says most people are delusional. We somehow think we’re entitled to “the good life” without putting in the effort required to actually get there.

When you look at your life today, would you objectively say you deserve a higher life quality than others – according to the work you’ve put in? Are you better than your competition?

Look around in your life, who would you bet on to make a million dollars? Would you bet on yourself? If not – what needs to change?

Application & Thoughts

Take on an attitude of full responsibility for your own life. If you want a higher life quality there will be things you’ll have to do and things you’ll have to give up. This way you’ll increase your chances of attaining the life you desire (duh).

How?

This made me look at my life and compile a list of essential habits that are required to build a great life. Then I proceeded to break these down into actionable steps to implement gradually.

2) Be Adaptable

This step is based on the theory of evolution which states that the person who’s best-adapted to his environment is the one that’ll survive. “The good life” doesn’t go to people who don’t notice the “change of seasons.”

The person with static skills will never thrive in an dynamic environment. Look for changes & trends and use those to your advantage. Make choices on a long-term basis.

Application & Thoughts

Be aware of your current actions and surroundings. Check up on your habits and see if the way you’re living is an ESS (evolutionary stable strategy) meaning you quantify your decisions based on long-term thinking.

Devise a survival strategy for your life.

  • Is eating at McDonalds a maintainable strategy?
  • Is spending money on clothes and dinners a maintainable strategy?
  • Is working a 9-5 job without added entrepreneurship a maintainable strategy?

The way I do this is by staying aware of political, social, economic and technological trends. I wouldn’t watch the news (solely) since they are heavily biased towards ratings.

Subscribe to different websites who keep you updated of occurring events that may impact your life.

3) Be Humble

Everyone has a piece of gold that we can extract from them. We find humility in what we learn from others, even the ones we think can’t provide us any value.

Be teachable by people who achieved far greater results than you have. Look for deep domain expertise (does he/she actually have the knowledge?) and references (does he/she have the results you desire?)

Many people are unhumble know-it-alls, unable to listen to people who know more than they do.

Application & Thoughts

Spend more time learning from the ones that came before you and less from your own mistakes. Spend your money on books & seminars. Spend more time tracking down and networking with mentors.

This will enable you to avoid a lot of mistakes by “standing on the shoulders of giants”. It allows you to tap into the collective wisdom of great minds that have come before you.

4) Get A Mentor

Mentors will shave years of your learning curve and I recommend you to get one. Whether this is in books, seminars or real-life.

Mentor others too. Tai talks about the law of 33%, which states that you should spend;

  • 1/3 of your time with people below you (the ones you mentor)
  • 1/3 of your time with people on your level (close friends, brothers in arms)
  • 1/3 of your time with people above you (your mentors)

Find people who aren’t full time teachers but are actually making money with the things they’re preaching about. Keep in mind that;

  • Good mentors are busy (He mentions a story in which a man tried 17 times before he got mentored)
  • Some are burned up
  • Build the relationship slowly (Establish contact over a 18 month period)
  • Don’t be a leech, provide value by using the concept of reciprocal kindness.
  • Interview people you admire on a self-created platform
  • Buy and read their books

Application & Thoughts

Make a list of 10 mentors and contact all of them. A great way to create a networking spreadsheet is by using the free ebook from John Corcoran – I’ve found it to be invaluable.

I don’t necessarily believe the law of 33% is that relevant/practical. Learn from the great and teach it to others (to improve your memory)

5) Ignore The 99%

Most people’s opinions are simply reflections of social bias. Look for references and signs of expertise before taking advice.

  • Don’t trust health advice from a personal trainer that’s overweight.
  • Don’t take money advice from someone’s who’s constantly struggling financially.
  • Don’t listen to relationship advice from someone who doesn’t have a (girl)friend(s)

Select the people you listen to carefully.

Many people think they know what they’re talking about yet rarely do – me included. Go straight to the top of people that can give you advice and cut out the average.

This is a BIG reason why I’m so fond of books. It allows us to learn from the greatest and copy their relative successes by adopting their thinking patterns.

Application & Thoughts

See the difference between your “rich” friends and “poor” friends in each area. The friends who are “rich” in health;

  • How do they think?
  • How do they eat?
  • How do they train?

Same goes with financially rich people;

  • The way they manage their money
  • Their spending habits
  • How much they read
  • What they talk about
  • How much tv they watch

Same with people who have great relationships;

  • How they treat others
  • How they behave in company
  • Their body language

Invert their behavior and see how it pays off.

Overall be careful who you imitate. Through observational learning it’s possible to instill bad patterns in you that you remain stuck with for a great while (e.g. your dad that smoked, your splurging habits of your friends, …) We admire status and prestige in others and are sometimes blinded by the way they’ve acquired it.

Find highly concentrated knowledge and not just random people who don’t know what they’re talking about.

Observe and select the ones you learn from carefully. Cut out the average.

6) Grind It Out

All (sustainable) success comes from “the grind”. Process over events.

You have less chance of winning the lottery than you have of;

  • Getting hit by lightning
  • Being eaten by a shark
  • Being hit by a piece of scrap metal from a plane

Yet how many people buy lottery tickets each day?

Look at your life as one big piece of marble and everyday you grind away one small piece of imperfection. Tai calls this “the sculpture approach”. Choose the general direction you want to go and adjust accordingly. Most people are looking for “events” as opposed to “grinds”.

Health, wealth and love don’t come in events but by carefully selected actions every single day. Don’t think others have it easier than you – they don’t.

You often come to the conclusion that other peoples’ good fortune is derived from a factor outside of their control, that their favorable achievements can be attributed to circumstances. This is because you’ve never seen the hard work, doubts and pain involved that gave birth to those successes.

We don’t observe the inner workings of another and are therefore more inclined to ascribe their successes to outside forces.

Tai compares this to observing the passing seasons.

“We only observe people who are in the fall (harvest) of their life. Forgetting about the longs months of planting in the spring and cultivating during the summer that preceded”

Most are delusional as to how much time it’ll take to get the results they’re looking for. They’ve never planted nor cultivated their crops – yet hope to harvest in the fall.

Application & Thoughts?

Set a realistic time-frame it’ll take to achieve expertise. Focus on planting and cultivating good actions instead of hoping for events.

A mind shift from events towards processes.

And don’t ever buy lottery tickets, that makes you a fool – seriously.

7) Escape The Salary Mentality

We have been conditioned all our lives to feel helpless and dependent on others. By being constantly provided by our school, our parents and later our jobs with secure income we have become “learned helpless” meaning we have hardwired our brain to need a steady/regular income.

Get away from this. Stop getting paid for the time you spend in a certain place but start wiring your brain to get paid for performance.

It will make you responsible for your own financial support by actively searching new opportunities you can turn into a profit. If you’ve hardwired your brain in this salary-slave-mentality you become blind to new opportunities.

Application & Thoughts

Ask your employer to get paid according to your performance instead of your time. Tell him your reasoning and ask him how you can improve your performance. This is a win-win.

Secondly analyze your strengths (see step 12) and skills you can combine to create value for others.

  • Are you good at repairing? Repair some stuff from people you know
  • Do you know about health & fitness? Make a training program and sell it to your friends

Initially it’s not about the profit you make but about the re-wiring of your brain to avoid downward spirals of bad habits.

8) Life Long Learning

“Survival machines that can simulate the future are one jump ahead of survival machines that can only learn based on trial and error”

Tai recommends to learn from the failures of others instead of only relying on your own. Trial and error takes times and energy – frequent errors can even be fatal. Simulations (derived from books) are both safer and faster.

How?

Learn from books! 

This is invaluable. We’ve been conditioned by school that learning is boring and unrewarding but this is simply not true.

It’s not enough anymore in our current information-society to be a mere expert – let alone a generalist.

Tai recommends everyone to become a so-called “renaissance-man” or polymath. Become highly specialized in one particular field and develop conversational level depth in all other subjects. Become so good at one particular field they can’t ignore you.

“Be impressive beyond belief in one thing”

This will allow you to stir & combine more ideas in your mind which will blend to form great opportunities. Tai recommends learning about science, music, language, history & culture (literature, art & poetry)

Application & Thoughts

Life-long continuous learning. I recommend to master health, social and your area of expertise first before spreading out since those are most practical. Learn from others’ mistakes first.

Here’s how to read a book;

  1. Read non-fiction books that help improve your life quality.
  2. Ask yourself; How will I use this information to improve my life quality/move me closer to my goals?
  3. What questions will this material answer?
  4. Don’t read everything! (20%ofthebookyou’re reading has 80% of the content; It’s you job to find it/filter it out. See yourself as a gold-miner)
    • Read cover, back, contents, introduction and conclusion first then select chapters that help you answer the question you had in step 3

My Guide To Optimal Learning

9) Be Tough

Tai recommends everyone to take on a more stoic view on life. Meaning you should “sacrifice today for a better tomorrow”. We – as a society – have become too soft. Too YOLO.

“Adversity makes men and prosperity creates monsters.”

Spartans used to go through the agoge learning stealth, cunning, fighting skills and mental resilience from the ages of 7(!) till 21.

Nowadays? There’s nothing like that.

We suffer from a lack of role models, an estrogen inducing diet, media propaganda, too much comfort and more stuff that is making us a shade of our former selves.

Application & Thoughts

Here’s some I do;

  • Take a cold shower every morning
  • Eat a ketogenic or paleolithic diet high in fat to increase testosterone
  • Wake up early (between 5-7 AM) every day
  • Do deadlifts, squats and bench presses
  • DO NOT watch porn nor masturbate
  • Monitor your body language and self-talk

It’s not about what you do that really matters but about the the mental resilience that discomfort builds.

10) Master Your Mind

Our brain is mal-adapted to the times we live in. It is human tendency to move away from pain and into pleasure. Our limbic system is still geared towards instant gratification based on instinct whilst our “newer” neocortex makes more intelligent long-term decisions

“Your neuroprogramming doesn’t understand the complexities of the modern world.”

For Example;

  • Fast Food
  • Drugs
  • Alcohol
  • Narcotics
  • Sugar
  • Frivolous spending

They all create dopamine highs (pleasure hormone) you become addicted to.

But as many studies have proven time and time again these habits are not good for us in the long-term. Over-indulgence has led to many of the recent problems in our modern world.

Application & Thoughts

Don’t trust your own brain

See your brain as a divided entity: one being your instinctual craving for instant gratification – the part that’s holding you back. The other being the “real you” (e.g. your neocortex) which makes intelligent decisions.

GREAT quote I’ve stumbled upon recently;

“Our brains are battlefields between our nature and our nurture” – Carlo

11) Build On Strength

People leave school without knowing the things they excel at nor in which industry they can thrive. This skipping from job to job disables them to really develop deep domain expertise which is a requisite for making it big.

“A person can only perform from strengths, and cannot build performance on weakness.

 

“Successful careers are not planned. They develop when people are prepared for opportunities because they know their strengths, their method of work, and their values.”

 

“It takes far less energy to move from first-rate performance to excellence than it does to move from incompetence to mediocrity.” – Peter Drucker


Application & Thoughts

Read Managing Oneself by Peter Drucker or Download The SummaryFind answers to the underlying questions, they are indicators of strengths.

  • In what did you grow up around?
  • What do strangers compliment you on?
  • What did you want to become as a child (what were the underlying trends?)
  • What have you been doing the last 10 years?
  • What can you effortlessly talk about without losing drive?
  • What are the things you effortlessly excel at? What comes easy for you?
  • What are the things that make you feel energetic when you do them?
  • In what areas do you learning quickly?
  • Who do you envy? Who are your mentors?

Build up an array of intangible and tangible skills that are highly desired and difficult to learn suited to your strengths.

If you’re more of an introvert and dislike unstructured/chaotic environments, don’t place yourself in those. If you find you thrive in stimulating environments or need to work with people, go for that.

Read My Post On Finding Your Strengths

12) Find Something You Like – Not “Passion”

Look for work you can sustain for a long time. Your work is going to fill a large part of your adult life therefore it’s imperative you put yourself in a position you can excel at (by knowing your strengths).

Tai states that if you have a job where you need vacation from, you should never go back to it.

A life you need vacation from is a pathetic life.

He goes on to say you shouldn’t look for your passion either, looking for that illusive pot of gold that “feels just right”. It will send you on a wild-goose chase blocking you from building up deep domain expertise in one area.

Find something you like instead.

“Never do something you love, once you do it for work you won’t love it anymore. Do what you like” – Allan Nation

It’s ok to have an eb and flow of work and play  but your end-game shouldn’t be vacation. It should be – as he calls it – “tapdancing” out of bed. Meaning you’re excited and motivated to start your day and feel competent at what you’re doing.

Application & Thoughts

Don’t look for passion but build on strength. We’re often told to “follow our passion” but that’s rarely adequate. Position yourself in areas you like and are good at and after a while you’ll learn to love it.

Find work you have an natural advantage in and use that to your own benefit. It’ll become your passion after a while.

Again, read managing oneself.

13) Be Prepared

67 steps review Tai Lopez Tools

Our life is the combined result of our knowledge and our ignorance. We achieve what we understand deeply but lose that what we’re ignorant about.

Ask yourself how many “tools” you have in your tool-belt to deal with your problems. Are you well-rounded enough?

If you don’t have it in your head, you’ll have it in your heel.

(meaning ignorance is costly)

Application & Thoughts

Ask yourself the worst case scenarios that can happen in each area of your life; what is necessary to prepare yourself  for the future? Do you know;

  • Basic physiology & nutrition to eat well?
  • Psychology to improve your mindset?
  • Accounting to maintain the money you’re having?
  • Investing to grow it?
  • Social skills to build strong relationships?
  • How to build attraction with the opposite gender for intimate relationships?

14) Adopt The Investor Mentality

67 steps review Tai Lopez Investing

It’s not enough to merely make money, it has to be maintained and grown into larger quantities. Adopt the “investor mentality” and start spending money on things that bring you a return in profit over time.

Most people buy things that rust, rot or depreciate as Tai says; New furniture, latest technological gadgets, fancy cars they can’t afford and so-on. These are consumption’s – not investments.

See you dollars as little seeds you plant to generate and grow a better future.

Many people are frivolous in spending. Not only money but also time, energy and health. He recommends calculating the real cost involved of something instead of just taking into account the price.

  • How many hours do you have to work to pay for this item?
  • How much of your health are you sacrificing by eating “cheap” food?
  • How much energy will this purchase cost you?

Application & Thoughts

Information is your most valuable asset.

  • Invest in books, seminars & mentors
  • Invest in good food for a clear mind (I recommend paleo/ketogenic type diet)
  • Study investing before trusting-off your money to others!
  • Spend money on events over material possessions to create what Daniel Kahnemann calls ‘memory happiness”
  • Sell all the stuff you don’t use

15) Be A “Social Chameleon”

There are different types of people with different sets of personalities. Tai Lopez recommends becoming a “social chameleon” and shifting to a communication style suited to the person you’re talking to.

He has developed his own “personality system” to categorize 4 different people. (A bit like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.) He calls it the P.A.S.E.-system: Practical, Action, Social & Emotional. Representing 4 “styles” people embody.

  • Practical people are slower. They like to plan their work and need a lot of structure. They are unmalleable.
  • Action-takers burn through stuff. They’re more hands-on kind of types. They start a lot of stuff but don’t really finish it.
  • Social people are more go-with-the-flow kind of people. They are more gregarious and people oriented. They can be flaky at times.
  • Emotional people are comparable to deep oceans. They’re sensitive and intuitive.

Application & Thoughts

I don’t like his system but I like the purpose it serves. I’m convinced some personalty traits are inborn and it’s important to “speak other peoples’ language” and adapt to their way of thinking. Being  a social chameleon like Tai says.

I personally like the MBTI test for categorizing people.

  • Talk quieter and more deeply with introverts
  • Be more sensitive/caring around emotional people and more rational/to-the-point around logical ones.
  • Read How To Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie (GREAT book)

16) Be A Truthseeker

Life is never black or white. It’s not enough to see through your own eyes but you should see the world through “truths eyes”.

What does this mean?

Never become adamant in any set of beliefs before heavy experimentation. 

Don’t be blinded by others. Much “common knowledge” is simply a reflection of social bias. Document YOUR reality by reading the “obvious signs”.

  • Health: Take of your shirt and look at your body in the mirror. Is it healthy? Do you exercise? Do you eat right?
  • Wealth: Open up your bank account next or check your financial template. Is your balance going down? Do you know you strengths? Are you taking initiative?
  • Social: Lastly, check the relationships on your phone. Do you want more friends and/or more meaning in your relationships (breadth/depth?)

The closer we get to the truth the better we’ll do in each area.

Be a constant experimenter on yourself and track progress on the things you’re doing. Here’s the process one should go through to adopt the experimenter mentality;

  1. Ask a research question
  2. Research & Form a hypothesis (Ask opinions of experts)
  3. Test it (1-3 months) – stick to it
  4. Observe & record the process and the result
  5. Make a conclusion
  6. Implement/Discard

Application & Thoughts

The best way I’ve found is to experiment by keeping a journal. I’ve been writing one since late 2013. I’ve accumulated a lot of data and knowledge about my life. It allows me to see recurring trends and the results of my experiments. This way I can adjust my life to whats necessary.

I’ve tried;

  • Eating 15 eggs a day
  • Doing frequent morning runs at 5am
  • Going out to nightclubs and approaching x amount of women in a night
  • Doing sleeping experiments
  • Keeping a dream diary for lucid dreaming
  • 2-day fasting

Discard useless experiments and implement what’s beneficial.

17) Define Your End-Game

Tai recommend doing “the funeral test” to see what you really want out of life. Envision your funeral and ask yourself what you would want other to say about you and your life. What will you have left behind? How will others remember you?

In your mind’s eye, see yourself going to the funeral of a loved one. Picture yourself driving to the funeral parlor or chapel, parking the car, and getting out. As you walk inside the building, you notice the flowers, the soft organ music. You see the faces of friends and family you pass along the way. You feel the shared sorrow of losing, the joy of having known, that radiates from the hearts of the people there.

 

As you walk down to the front of the room and look inside the casket, you suddenly come face to face with yourself. This is your funeral, three years from today. All these people have come to honor you, to express feelings of love and appreciation for your life.

 

As you take a seat and wait for the services to begin, you look at the program in your hand. There are to be four speakers. The first is from your family, immediate and also extended —children, brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents who have come from all over the country to attend. The second speaker is one of your friends, someone who can give a sense of what you were as a person. The third speaker is from your work or profession. And the fourth is from your church or some community organization where you’ve been involved in service.

 

Now think deeply. What would you like each of these speakers to say about you and your life? What kind of husband, wife, father, or mother would like their words to reflect? What kind of son or daughter or cousin? What kind of friend? What kind of working associate?

 

What character would you like them to have seen in you? What contributions, what achievements would you want them to remember? Look carefully at the people around you. What difference would you like to have made in their lives? – 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

Look at your role models and the life they’ve build for themselves and ask whether you want to be In their shoes. Most people drift aimlessly because they’ve never really analyzed the results they’re looking for.

Without this it’s far too easy to become trapped in the plans of someone else.

Application & Thoughts

Define for each area of your life what you exactly want. I personally use the 7 areas of life approach to solve this problem but the visualization does help to figure out what you truly value.

Off course you’ll want the nice car, off course you’ll want the wild sexual adventures, off-course you’ll want to master your favorite instrument. But all that’s inessential simply burns away in contrast with death.

Read My Post On Setting Goals

18) Choose Relationships Wisely

The world is a competitive place where not everyone has you best interest at heart. The only person who does is yourself (and maybe some of your family). We’re selfish animals by instinct, programmed for survival. Not everyone adheres to the same moral laws you abide by.

Don’t be a sucker by not understanding human nature.

Irresistible forces are always at work. So don’t be fooled by outward appearances, people aren’t always what they project to be.

Morality is the cognitive victory on our animalistic nature. An unwritten code for effective living that can inspire trust and security. Yet it doesn’t always win on our instinctual war for scarce resources.

“Man can do what he wills but he cannot will what he wills”

the animal nature of man is a product of genetic evolution; the urges of man are therefore basal at best. Money, reproduction, happiness, sex, … .

Overall: be careful who you trust, especially when it comes to money.

Application & Thoughts

Set high criteria for the people you allow in your life. Stay away from the unfortunate, unlucky, emotional unstable or otherwise untrustable.

Interview & judge people through recommendations and background checking. It takes a while to completely trust someone, so let people be around you for a long time to see “all their sides”

19) Spend Time Wisely

Life is long if you know how to use it, most people waste their time on useless trivia. We’re not given a short life, but we’re wasteful of it.

Seneca describes 8 ways in which people waste their life;

  1. Greedy activities
  2. Dedication to useless tasks
  3. Drinking & drugs
  4. Laziness
  5. Worrying what others think of you
  6. Self-imposed servitude to thankless people
  7. Pursuing others people money (making others rich)
  8. Having no clear direction

Here’s another cool quote I’ve compiled from several different sources;

Poor is the man never able to unshackle the chains of his instinctual conditioning.

Predestined for waste, indulgence and decay is he who’s incapable to recollect yesterdays events, utilize today and anticipate the wonders of tomorrow.

Blind of time we waste much of it.

Merely existing, not living.

Don’t be without true pleasure or improvements of the mind – to avoid weeping over the days that will never come again.

Application & Thoughts

I think it’s best to divide your time between 80% stoicism and 20% epicureanism. I call it the 80/20 YOLO-Rule.

Read My Post On Time-Management

20) Prioritize

Not everything is equally important. In your effort to juggle around all things everything gets shortsighted.

There are six BIG lies when it comes to productivity (One Thing by Gary Keller)

  • All things matter equally. Not everything is equally as important. There’s really only one thing that truly matters.
  • Multitasking is good & efficient. Multitasking is a myth it’s simply switching back and forth between different tasks rapidly. Don’t let you workflow be interrupted by distractions (re-engaging in a project consumes considerably more time and energy)
  • Discipline in everything is necessary.  You have to be selectively discipline. Success is about doing the right things right, not everything right. Become selectively disciplined until habits are formed.
  • Willpower is always on will-call. Willpower is like a battery, it depletes over time. This concept is called willpower depletionThink of it like the power bar on your cell-phone, it drains over time. Do your most important work first.
  • Balance is important. To achieve an extraordinary result, you must choose what matters most and give it all the time it demands. This requires getting extremely out of balance related to other life areas.
  • Big is bad. How big you think becomes the launching pad for how high you achieve. Our results are directly related to the magnitude of our thinking. Think big. Now double it.

Application & Thoughts

  • Do your most important activities first
  • Plan your “3-4 big rocks” the day before
  • Don’t multitask
  • Make habits 
  • Read “The One Thing” by Gary Keller

21) Shut The Fuck Up And Do Something

67 steps review tai lopez

There’s so much lost potential of woulda, shoulda, coulda’s. It’s often not the ideas nor capacity that holds someone back in life as much as his own mind.

Who needs enemies when you got yourself, right?

When in doubt just do something. Action will always lead to a result. Whether a bad one or a good one. At least you’re learning. Doing nothing gets you nowhere.

Be courageous enough to do things other people shy away from. Be bold. There’s actually less competition for higher spots because nobody truly believes he is that valuable.

Be a bit delusional about yourself and just throw enough shit against the wall until something finally sticks.

“If you lose at least you tried man. “I failed” is 10x more of a man than someone who said “What if?” because “What if?” never went to the arena” – Greg Plitt

The doubt, insecurity and fear is a temporary price you pay for not being a spectator in life. Not sitting on the sidelines watching your life ooze by – no recollection of current events.

That might be some motivational rambling without real content but in the end there’s only two options you can take after reading this post;

  • Action that might give you a chance for something better
  • Fear until death & suffering takes you

Take your pick.

Conclusion

I think the content provided is legit although Tai talks a bit (too?) much and therefore doesn’t always stick to the topic. He elaborates a lot about his personal life and repeats different lessons throughout his program.

Another (maybe biased) reason I like this guy is because he’s friends with Elliot Hulse and Owen Cook. Two other men I’ve learned a lot from.

I believe the advice I’ve summarized in this post is the most essential to take away from the 67 steps course.

Thanks for reading my review of the 67 steps. If you liked the 67 steps by Tai Lopez – Let me know in the comments below!

What Did You Learn From The 67 Steps?

– Simon

Update 15/04/2016

Should You Get This Course?

There’s been quite some people now who’ve asked me if there’s going to be more steps or if the 67 steps is really worth its money – So I’m going to try to answer this as honestly as possible (although bias is inevitable if I’m having an affiliate link in the bottom of this article);

I’d say If you haven’t done many self-improvement courses you’ll definitely learn a lot of new insights and it’ll also enable you to deeply reflect on your own actions/life and become more conscious of the actions you need to take for a better life. Especially for mainstream/non self-dev people this can be a real eye-opener.

The biggest take-away for me personally, was the part of “building my career on strengths” and how to discover these. It allowed me to direct my career (web-developing) into a more favorable direction.

My aim was to get wealth (money, cash, ba-bling, $$) when picking up this course, it hasn’t made me rich (yet) but has put me in the right direction from my understanding.

However – I believe that if you understand & integrate the lessons I’ve outlined in this article into your life, then I don’t think you should get the full course though. I’ve found a lot of it to be common knowledge.

Yet – Common knowledge isn’t always common practice and it can often be good to be reminded of essential truths that we forget over time. + I’ve spent 67 bucks on more stupid shit, like video-games & other illegible self-improvement “guru’s”.

Yeah he has a lot of marketing, yeah he’s a smooth talker. But he has the knaawledge to back it up.

So – if you do decide to get the 67 step course after reading  this article, consider purchasing it through this linkIt’s an affiliate link, meaning I’ll get a small % of your purchase – the price stays the same though :).

I’d suggest to cancel the future payments immediately though – it’s in the fine print.print The VIP coaching calls & book summaries are not that great. That money is IMO better spent on buying & reading the books he recommends. Which overall have the highest ROI.

Then again I’m a cheapass.

Take care,

  1. This was great !
    Took me a day to read due to work but I made it a point to finish this
    Thanks for this info
    I also wanted to know what exactly was VIP calls? Does this program as live chats with tai as well?

  2. I’m just wondering, why dont you have a few ads down the sides of this blog? It wouldn’t really hurt the webdesign of your page and could well make you some profit.

  3. Ive been charged none of this does anythi g i feel ripped off i want the money u took yesterday back

  4. Wonderful comments. I did exactly as Tai suggested not to do. I had a Small Business which I started without knowledge. I made some money. I understand my mistake but would like that second chance to start over; to restore.

  5. Hi Simon,

    Thanks a lot for sharing beneficial knowledge from the 67 steps with us, truly appreciate it!

    However, i would like to add that the four parts of the “good life” in the order of priority should be:

    1) DEEN (Ultimate Purpose in Life)
    2) FAMILY / SOCIAL
    3) HEALTH
    4) WEALTH

    When you see a bridge, a building or an automobile, you automatically consider the person or company that constructed it. When you see a large ship, an airplane, a rocket, a satellite; you also think about how incredible it is. [You know by its design who the maker is.] When you see a super international airport, nuclear plant or an orbiting space station you have to be thoroughly impressed with the engineering dynamics that are involved. Yet, these are just things that are manufactured by human beings. So what about the human body with its massive and intricate control systems? Think about it.

    Think about the brain: how it thinks, functions, analyzes, retrieves and stores information, as well as distinguishes and categorizes information in a millionth of a second, all of this constantly.

    Think about the brain for a moment. (And don’t forget the fact that you are using your brain to consider itself!) This is the brain that made the automobile, the rocket ships, the boats, and so on. Think about the brain and who made that!

    Think about the heart. Think about how it pumps continuously for sixty or seventy years [taking in and discharging blood throughout the body] maintaining steady precision throughout the life of the person.

    Think about the kidneys and the liver and the various functions they perform. The purifying instruments of the body that perform hundreds of chemical analyses simultaneously and also controls the level of toxicity in the content of the body. All of these are done automatically.

    Think about your eyes, the human cameras, that adjust, focus, interpret, evaluate, discern color automatically, naturally receiving and adjusting to light and distance.

    Think about it-Who created them? Who has mastered their design and function? Who plans and regulates their function? Human beings do this? No, of course not. What about this universe?

    Think about this. This earth is one planet in our solar system, and our solar system is one [of possible many] solar systems. Our galaxy, The Milky Way, is one of the galaxies. There are ONE HUNDRED MILLION GALAXIES in the universe. They are all in order and they are all precise. They are not colliding with each other. They are not conflicting with on another. They are swimming along in an orbit that has been set for them. Did human beings set that into motion and are human beings maintaining that precision? No, of course not.

    Think about the oceans, the fish, the insects, the birds, the plants, bacteria, and chemical elements that have not yet been discovered and cannot be detected even with the most sophisticated instruments. Yet each of them has a law that they follow. Did all of this synchronization, balance, harmony, variation, design, maintenance, operation and infinite numeration happen all by chance? Do these things function perfectly and perpetually also by chance? No, of course not. That would be totally illogical and foolish. In the least, it indicates that however it came to exist-it exists beyond the realm of human capability. We will all agree to that. The Being, The Almighty Power, God, The Creator who has the knowledge to design and proportion created all of this and is responsible for maintaining it. HE is the only one that deserves praise and gratitude.

    If I were to give each one of you one hundred dollars for no reason, just for posting here, you would at least say thank you.

    What about your eyes, your kidneys, your brain, your children, and your life: Who gave you all of that? Is He not worthy of praise and thanks? Is He not worthy of your worship and recognition?

    Allah said to us in the Holy Quran: “And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.” [Surah 51: Ayah 56] this is what the Almighty said.

    Our purpose in this life is to recognize The Creator, to be grateful to Him, to worship Him, to surrender ourselves to Him and to obey the laws that He has determined for us. It means worship is our purpose in life. Whatever we do in the course of that worship, [i.e., the eating, the sleeping, the dressing, the working, the enjoying,] between birth and death is consequential and subject to His orders. But the main reason for our creation is worship. I don’t think anyone who is analytical or scientific will have much of an argument with that purpose. They may have some other reason with themselves-but that is something they have to deal with between themselves and Almighty God.

  6. Thank u for summering the 67 steps .

  7. Thanks a lot, great article. This article also opened up my eyes to your page, so i will definitely look into it!

    IMO, Tai Lopez is a man who has a lot of good point. However, he appears not to be trustworthy by the way he presents his content. I think it is a shame, because people could really learn from this guy.

    After reading this article, I do not think it is necessary to purchase his program, because you have presented the reader with the most important and basic tools to really change your life.

    Ones again, great article and i look forward to read other content on your page.

  8. This is a very helpful page. Thank you

  9. I paid $89CAD for the 67 steps but never got an email or the program itself. Is this some sort of scam?

    • Hey Caryl the exact same thing just happened to me, I live in Toronto, Ontario. I purchased the program online for 93$ CAD and after the purchase it sent me to a website with other “special offers” which i thought they would just have sent me to the actual 67 steps program so i had to figure out how to end up in the program website nd it sent me to an ERROR page with no other option or way of getting the actual 67 program. Did you end up getting any different results by any chance ?

  10. I paid $89CAD for the 67 steps but never got an email or the program itself. Is this some sort of scam?

  11. Watched that YouTube video & thought he actually had spoken so much of it that I barely felt the need of taking it any further. I was just checking randomly for his profile coz I liked his speech in one TedTalk about reading a book-a-day. Then I came accross your review & I think you nailed it 100%! Thanks for sharing this, worth keeping.

  12. great summary, thank you for this! Appreciate the genuine introspection.

    • Thank you for your Insight to the 67 steps and definitely was quite compelling ! I truly feel in reality that the 67 step program should be taken to the true Gospel of Life ,The Bible ! Read it from front to back and this will give you a true meaning of how to be successful and healthy & wealthy and RICH in SPIRIT ! By reading the word will open up more opportunities to everyone and they shall be blessed more then they could ever ask ! Moreover then reading all these self-taught books and it’s free ! If you have problems with your life and where to go read the word ! Be blessed

  13. Thank you for this summary and review. I have found it very helpful.

  14. Everything great. What comes to me as a surprise is that I have been recently applying all this steps without knowing or hearing about it. Just letting life flow. And I am about to open a 100 beds hostel. And without putting a penny on it, except all my big ideas. Only point I do not agree is about asking not to watch porn and not explaining why. Are you against porn industry?

  15. I believe that the 67 steps by Mr Lopez are mostly usefull overall if they are implemented on a daily basis (even if most of the people cannot apply them to their own life).
    However I strongly disagree with Tai Lopez and its commercial practices. If you want to substantially improve your life: start saving money and learn how to invest wisely rather than buying his bullship. Anyone with very little common sense can figure out most of its steps and recomandations as they are so obvious and so general that its often of no use or not applicable to one’s particular situation. If you look deeper at his character and start scratching the cover of the book you’ll soon realize that everithing about him is fake. He’s a decent marketer but don’t let yourself fool by him.

    Hope this steps could be useful to some !

  16. The 67 Steps programme is a good programme, it was the catalyst for me to begin to dream and start on a personal journey. It is true to a point it is valuable. BUT, in my opinion the program has a few flaws (or possible improvements, if you like), it can lead some to lead an unauthentic life… I think this may lead you to complicate you life so much, and bring so much in, that you end up becoming someone your not, and end up living a life that really isn’t for you… I went through the whole programme and felt great after, I was going to go out, make money, build businesses etc. I was setting goals, for the year, the month, the week, and I was trying to steer my life in a direction, almost forcing it, to go where I thought it was going to be best. But then, a few weeks ago actually, I took a trip abroad to Iceland, saw the Northern Lights, and was slapped in the face. This life wasn’t me. I was taking the ideologies of other people to become something that I didn’t want to be deep down, something that in societies eyes was ‘successful’… I stopped all the daily/weekly goal setting, and I have now have just one simple summit to aim towards each year, and one vision I have for myself and what I truly want my life to become. My life is so much simpler and I’m feeling so much better not trying to keep up with the self-development rat-race, trying to be as good as everyone else. I now see ENJOYING THE JOURNEY is what really matters. I see many many people that live in their heads, who despite having the knowledge to be successful, aren’t happy because they didn’t listen to themselves… I’m NOT talking about living in the forest and hugging trees for the rest of your life etc. I have massive things I want to accomplish in my life still, but I feel that I needed the space to see them, and all this self-development stuff has one HUGE flaw, in that it’s not tailored to YOU specifically, it’s being shown to thousands of others, and I guarantee that you all won’t deep down, want or need everything Tai talks about in this program to live the happiest, most fulfilled life you can… I would love to talk to Tai personally about how fulfilling his life really is, he’s on snapchat all the time, posting all the time, keeping himself busy all the time, almost wearing it like a badge of honour. But is he as happy as he portrays on social media? Is he teaching people to be happy, or successful in the eyes of society? (No offence to the man at all, I have faith that he is a good person, meaning well, I only mean to pose the question, that not many ask)… Living the 67 Steps life style for a time, has taught me that we seek to consume too much information, we complicate our lives and justify why we do it. I was forgetting to live the moment, and to live true to who I really want to be. There is no right or wrong, you don’t have to feel you NEED to be a business owner or entrepreneur to live a fulfilling life. The 67 Steps program is good, there are certain rules I will take away from it, around valuing your life, seeking help and having the desire to improve, but it gets to the point where you lose sight of what you really want, I was taken down a path that made my life more complex and I was disregarding aspects such as family and my close friends, to pursue this ideology, it was turning me into someone I wasn’t… My advice it to let go of goal setting, and reading for a whole week or month, let go of what people are telling you to do, and take some space to ask yourself tough questions. Find out who YOU are, and don’t take other people’s opinions on what you should be doing, the 10-12-56-67 steps to this or that, as gospel. Let go of it all for a time, and honestly decide whether it serves you or not. Because there are many people in this life that get to the top of the mountain, and realise that it wasn’t what they thought. All because they have been living a life that they were told to live, to get to a place they were told they should be living to be ‘happy’. I hope that isn’t you… Thank you for reading, I wanted to give a honest opinion and look at the program, any questions feel free to reply. All the best to you and your future, believe big, believe in YOURSELF.

    • Good on you Louis, you are the one who should be running courses!
      Real happiness will only ever be found within. So many people feel like failures after doing these types of programs because they don’t make millions or haven’t had success in business or other things. It can take them years to get over it.
      Success, happiness and fulfillment are just a state of mind that’s always available to everyone, we have all just forgotten.

    • Holy mother of textwall

      • Now that’s out of the way;

        But is he as happy as he portrays on social media?

        Good insight. I also think Tai is too prominent on social media which imo lowers his life quality. Then again he might get fulfillment out of spreading his ideas just like I do when I write articles.

        It’s difficult finding a balance between self-improvement and peace of mind. I see a lot of succesful people struggling with this balance. I’ve actually written an article on this in the past Self acceptance vs self improvement. Is this what you mean?

        Living the 67 Steps life style for a time, has taught me that we seek to consume too much information, we complicate our lives and justify why we do it.

        It seems you’re over-consuming information then without acting on it and should be doing a low information diet? It’s easy to become overwhelmed in our current information age. Here’s things people can do to counter that;

        – Don’t check facebook, twitter, youtube nor blogs during the day. Always read with a purpose regarding your goals.
        – Read one fact-based book at a time. (Aim for one/10 days)
        – Don’t watch the news nor any other tv programs (except pre-defined movies/documentaries)
        – That’s all, most information is in-actionable or completely irrelevant anyway.

        My advice it to let go of goal setting, and reading for a whole week or month

        Here’s mine;

        I don’t recommend people not to set goals; it makes you passive and directionless, leading to lessened results. Set fewer, high impact ones & make time for stress releasing activities. Limit tasks to the important ones using pareto & shorten work-time (set a daily time where you stop working) to increase time-pressure (parkinsons’ law).

        Only care about the actions that have a great ROI on your life quality (working out, eating healthy, developing a skill to make money, relaxing, sleeping, dating, …). Read only one fact-based book at a time.When feeling overwhelmed, cut back on the input and focus more on output.

        • Great Responce my friend, in hindsight I think you are right to say I’m accumulating not acting, but I would say to that the program never taught me (on an emotional level at least) how to know what to act on.
          I guess what I was trying to say, is that doing everything he says isn’t going to make you happy, it may make you a lot of money, but depression and loss of identity may come with that.
          You hit the nail on the head when you said its a balence with peace of mind. Peace of mind is SO important, but it is hardly mentioned.
          In regards to goals, I needed to get out of my own way, and take some space, away from books and goals for a whole month, to ask myself more important questions (‘What do you really want?’ Or ‘How much of you does the world get to see?’) and give the answers space to come natural.
          Tai’s program is great, the tactics are good, but it’s very external and intellectual. Seeking intellectual help (step 1, step 2 etc.) on core emotional problems (‘what should I do with my life?’, why do I not feel fulfilled and purposeful?’ Etc.). It’s annoying for people like me who want to get started, but after the program I feel no closer to getting started at all, (aside from the new investing mindsets, which I would say are invaluable, that really changed my life).
          I just want to make sure people going into this program are aware of that, nothing kills me more than to see a guy/girl chasing the material, monetary goals that society emphasises in this world. It’s not going to make them any happier, or moreover, anyone else for that matter!
          Bottom line: I wouldn’t want to swap my life with Tai, and I recommend making your own judgement, and taking things with a pinch of salt.

          Sorry for another text wall (:P), you can tell I’m passionate about getting the message across.

    • I actually read your entire post haha I wasn’t expecting to. But I took some great insight from you. You’re so right! We as human beings need to find ourselves, get lost a bit, use guidance but don’t change too much of us to gain what the 3% has. I still want to be the humble fun individual before and after. I would say reading the books are more so to be used as an empowerment tool; to get the motors running. Some people need that type of motivation, but I like the way you put things into perspective.

    • Annpeacelover

      Thank for ur awesome advice i totally agree with u abt living life simple.

    • excellent post.

  17. Hey man thanks for the great summary. Partially based on your review, I signed up for the 67 Steps. Probably the biggest 3 things I’ve learned/reinforced so far are: 1. read a lot of good books, 2. health wealth and love, and 3. grind it out.

    I think it’s a pretty good program, assuming $67 is within your educational budget. If $67 isn’t within your budget, then I would watch free videos on YouTube to get educated about what Tai’s talking about. Also, I would research and find reviews of the books Tai recommends without buying them.

    Also, I canceled the VIP membership. It wasn’t hard to do, though I didn’t reach anyone until the 3rd call. The people that do answer the number are really nice and easygoing.

    I am in the process of writing up information about my experience going through the 67 Step course on my website. The high quality of your writing/review is inspiring.

    I also signed up for the affiliate program, though I am planning/hoping to be as fair as possible with regard to the course, though I wouldn’t sign up for the affiliate program if I didn’t think it was a good product. I’m curious about why you haven’t decided to sign up as an affiliate (no pressure one way or the other)?

    Thanks

    • Good points

      1) I didn’t know there was an affiliate program – but I’ve included a link in the article now. Thanks!

      2) I don’t really know how I feel about people pushing products on me. I feel reviews are mostly biased if they include sponsored links in the body :/ Same reason why I don’t advertise on this site – It kinda annoys me.

      When I come to a site to read articles, I just want to read the fucking article and not have to navigate through a maze of fullscreen pop-ups wanting stuff from me.

      However – I dig the program, I dig Tai and I certainly like the ideas he’s spreading out. Might as well make a buck of it.

      Cheers,

      • Hey man,

        1) Glad to point that out. Hope it works out well.

        2) Ya I hear you, It’s a delicate balance. If someone is trying to make a full-time living from a website, some sort of marketing and promotion to sell products/services is most likely required. But there are some ways to do so that are definitely more classy and some that are less.

        I agree using affiliate links removes some of the impartiality from the review. But then I would only advise recommending worthwhile products/ideas/services/etc.

        Having a reputation for honest and fair reviews, will over time, probably produce better results than a site that gives good reviews to bad products to make money. One should be partial towards anything suggested to others, because liking something is being partial towards it. In a way, an affiliate link is a sign of partiality and an endorsement of that product/idea/service/etc.

        Steve Pavlina just redesigned his site and it’s very sleek and user-friendly. He talks about some of the design choices he made, basically that he’s making the site for friends. I notice your site has layout focused on the writing without sidebars, which definitely (to me) improves to overall feel of the site.

        • Good points :)

          writing without sidebars

          Yeah, I’ve noticed the same thing too. It also improves the users’ focus & comment count. The idea came from Mark Manson’s blog.

    • Tai talks way too much.

      • I think a lot people hold that opinion. I personally enjoy his talks/lectures, though I understand how some others wouldn’t, especially if they want to cut straight to the point.

        I think different people in general learn in different ways. For example, one person may want a straight-to-the-point presentation with bullet points and the most important points highlighted. Another person may enjoy the slower pace of a lecture series, including all the personal stories, etc.

  18. Peterson Kamau

    Great Summary. Keep it up. Some people may not be able to afford paying 67 dollars per month. In some countries like kenya, that is ksh 6700. This could be a whole months salary for millions of people. Thanks a lot for making these ideas available to millions of people out there. Blessings.

    • Some thoughts;

      I’m still unsure if I’m ripping Tai Lopez off with this review. It’s a fine line between doing a “review” and copying his content.

      I’ve done my best to make my own interpretation out of it though.

    • I had no idea it was $67 a month. I thought it was a one time payment.

  19. Hey Simonsomlai I realy admire your work and I dont think these advices are bad at all. But if u want save some time and realy want the evidence about Tai Lopez, I think this video is clearing the truth in funny way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRBkS-QWo6w sort of :-D. I hope I have helped you. Take care. ;-)

  20. Anthony Godleski

    Very nice. Thank you for sharing. I was pondering about purchasing his “67” steps but thought I could find most of it online somewhere else.

  21. I’m doing the program right now. I read your summary before I started. I have a shortcut on my home page. Excellent work. Thank you. Johnny X

  22. I went through the program and i’m impressed how you put everything together as summary. Thanks a lot.

  23. Sounds Awesome!
    I’m currently in a selling mastermind where you pay monthly and have learned the value of investing in yourself.
    I will join this when I’ve finished with the mastermind.

  24. Really good documentary, it changes my perspective on life. Thanks a lot. I’m happy that I ran an to your add on youtube.

  25. Great post thank you for writing it.

    Tai advises to search books for gold nuggets, that at most only 20% of the information is useful and that the other 80% should be ignored. Despite advising this he still goes on to talk endlessly often telling the same or irrelevant stories.

    P.s. you should delete the link to the porn site in the comments otherwise it can negatively effect your own website’s rankings.

  26. Pingback: The Ideal Self-Help Methods For An Improved Life | Now Charlotte Bailey

  27. Tai Lopez aka (Taino Adrian Lopez) is relatively new to the scamming game and is a member of a “syndicate.” A well done documentary on the concept is https://youtu.be/Z0LZ6DNCgrY?t=475 .

    The mission is to get the maximum amount of money from the victims by getting all of their emails and phone numbers, and rotating fake time limited offers one by one against the list. They hit them over the phone and by email at many different price points from $6,000 and down.

    So Tai uses a cloaking link on his youtube videos go turn you into a “lead” to be fed into the syndicate machine.
    Sometimes his link leads you to his own landing page, sometimes it takes you to a co-conspirators page.
    Here are some of the members of his syndicate he promotes, and their offers.
    Notice the common themes of fake time limits, fake limited supply, forcing email signup to discover price, prices that end in 7.

    1. Tai himself. $697 dinner or $67 a month autobill membership or $997 accelerator. He has other upsells.
    2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_h3ICZmDP8 OMGmachines $699 a month for 12 months, $8,388 total
    You can find him on the videos promoting this scam directly in person with Mike Long, and Liz Herrera, so he doesn’t even maintain his distance from this scam.
    3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADBBEtKnkjY http://nonjobs.com/dvd/ 100 dvd limit, lol. $497 dollars.

    There’s lots more of this, I am tired of reading it all.
    What is the theme? They teach you to get “rich” doing what IS NOT making them rich.
    They make sites to rank for “tai lopez scam” in google searches, and then use that rank to make testimonials.

    Now the hard to find data. He by law was required to disclose his business activities as a broker. Tai’s publicly registered government forms with FINRA http://brokercheck.finra.org/Individual/4472672 (click detailed report pdf in top left.) States he’s had a total of 3 years in the insurance industry, and he’s no longer licensed, and he had 2 other business activities:
    1. 50% PARTNER IN THE “LEGARY LIFE GROUP” WHICH IS THE COMPANY WE FORMED TO MARKET & SELL FIXED INSURANCE PRODCUTS.

Tai came from nothing, defrauded some folks with fake dating sites, and moved on to better scams by joining a syndicate and hitting it big on social media. If he had any other non scam success, he would call it out by name, as other successful people do, and enjoy the free publicity for his other business. And he’d have other domains in his name with age. And he’d have other corporate filings in his name with age. And he’d have testimonials from the past and photos from the past, and promotions from the past. Sadly, because he is a scam artist, what he has is a very well invented present, and ads out for 9 new employees to help him take people’s money.

    Please stop scamming and polluting what should be a healing not harming industry.

      For anyone caring enough & having the time to check all the links mentioned in the above comment – I’ve decided to keep this comment on.

      I – however – think Tai Lopez is legit and has some great information to share. Some of which has directly influenced the way I’ve chosen my career-path.

      Both sides of the argument are welcome.

      • Thank you very much simonsomlai for maintaining truthfinder’s post. You are truly unbiased in this issue for letting others investigate for themselves. But as of this moment, my opinion is that the knowledge he imparts are legitimate. Im about to purchase the 67 steps program. Im just checking about the scam thing and if the money back guarantee is really guaranteed. Thanks man. Ur awesome. I wish to have a sensible friend like you in real life.

    • That’s awesome that you wasted your time responding to that. Who cares about your opinion? You’re a broke jokester and you’re getting nowhere in life. Enjoy death.

    • Thank you for your very valuable posting. This will help a lot of innocent people.

    • Regardless of whether he’s in it for the money, he’s still advocating pursuing knowledge and purging ignorance. I’d say it’s helped more people than not. I was doing a monthly auto-renewal for a few months, decided I wanted to cancel and they returned my payment. Most scammy things wouldn’t. I may not totally agree with his approaches to some things, but I certainly have a greater awareness and better habits as a result of his numerous lectures.

      • Totally agree with this you! I’m getting a lot out of this 67Steps program. I wouldn’t join the more expensive offerings from OMG, Sam Ovens, etc. But… for the 67 bucks a month, that’s a bunch of great, relevant info & advice. The advice on which books to read (as an entrepreneur) along are very valuable! I will never talk anybody into joining the 67STeps, but I can tell you, it’s changed my life for the better the last months!
        I’ve been offered coahing programs by the likes of Rich Dad Society for thousands of dollards, and by a Belgian business coaching entreprise for 10.000+ euros! So, once again, 67USD is a bargain.
        Sincere greetings from a Belgian small business owner.

    • According to his standard of “scam”, anyone who is trying to make money is a SCAMMER. …Man…why am I wasting time replying this type of messages….I never learn

  28. Hey there, I see that this is an old version of the 67 Steps. I’m now on my Step 15 and it seems like it does not match starting from Step 5. But, I guess that doesn’t make any of these less true and less informative. Thank you for sharing another version of the steps and insights! :D

    • I’ve only went through the 67 steps once and made this post as a summary of the most important lessons overall to take-away. It’s possible the lessons have changed.

      – Good luck on the steps!
