Tai Lopez Notes for Chp: 38 “About life”: Building a Moat Around Your Castle.

health, wealth, love and happiness.

Throwing idiots to the crocodiles.

You have limited Choices. Make bounds on rationality even in family. Figure these two thing. People you want to be friends with and people you don’t. Friendly competition, Healthy competition. True competition, Nature, biology: germs and viruses.

Let’s figure out who we don’t want to be around: You want to compete with a bunch of idiots. Look for opportunity where people aren’t full and there’s an influx of people in it.

Also think about net worth. Mexico is good at oranges. Canada is good at apples.. (apple trees die in mexico it needs a winter cycle.).. Find out what your good at. If mexico starts making apples it’s possible but inefficient. If Canada starts making oranges it’s possible but inefficient. Let Mexico make oranges and Canada apples and the net worth when they trade results are amazing.

Your castle needs a moat. Land(people), labor and capital is important but – the idea of the moat is not the most important factor but it helps. Get rid of low self esteem people or people with distorted sense of esteem. You don’t want someone who is down all the time and pulling your mood down. There are people who know they are not a certain way. Distorted sense of esteem: Dangerous type of idea, creates worst type of people. They think they are overall better, better looking .. etc. It’s not only low self esteem people who are butt hurt all the time or have too distorted self esteem where they think they are so good and their ego is so big that they think they are better. There’s a neurosis and pent up rage when people question that and deflate their ego with negative feedback.

You want consistent, stable people. You need to watch for evidence for fake people. You want genuine, thoughtful people who you want to spend time with. Distorted is where they think they are already there when they are not. Optimism is a different concept, optimism is great. People who are tough on themselves, who think critical and negative. You also don’t want people who just say yes to everything. You need a synthesis of everything.. Stable is most important.

Look for allies that are long term and stable. Those are gold. Build an advantage for yourself.
