How Mentors Can Make You Great; Pat O’Brien w/ Tai Lopez On Lessons From Showbiz…

What do Michael Jordan, Al Pacino, Madonna, John Gotti, and Mickey Mantle know about greatness that can apply to your life today?

How can you become super ‘connected’ – winning friends and influencing people?

The great TV host, Pat O’Brien stopped by my house and shared some answers – what he learned from 40 years in showbiz.

My main takeaways were:

1. One mentor took him under his wing and made all the difference in his life.

2. Humility is hard when you are great at something, but without it you will be planting the seeds of your own eventual destruction.

3. Check out the 5 things he learned from the best athletes to ever play. I have never heard any of these before!

Pat is one of the most connected humans in the world – with more stories than about anyone I have ever met.

After a career as a sportscaster with CBS Sports from 1981 to 1997, host of Access Hollywood from 1997 to 2004, and The Insider from 2004 to 2008.

He covered six Olympic Games, two for CBS (1992 Winter and 1994) and four for NBC (2000, 2002, 2004 and 2012). He has also covered the World Series, Super Bowl, NBA Finals, and Final Four as a pregame host while at CBS.

George Karl & Tai Lopez (And “Sugar” Shane Mosley) On Winning And Focus

NBA coach, George Karl, was telling me after the game (notice “Sugar” Shane Mosley the boxer shooting around behind us haha) what he’s learned as one of the greatest coaches in basketball history.

He says it’s all about character and the fundamentals.

Everyone is looking for some magic bullet. He told me to be great you have to, “Have a commitment to focus.” How true.

The world is full of people who aren’t able to even sit in a chair for 15 or 30 minutes straight and read a book every day. Make sure you commit to focus.

Focus even when you’re not sure it’s the right thing to be focused on. Train your brain.
