These three gentlemen get compared a lot against each other. In this post, I’m going to describe each one of them and tell you why you can’t compare them to each other. All three of them are not normal, and that scares the crap out of normal people.

Who wants to be normal and get normal results? Not me that’s for sure, and I’m guessing you are the same. Each of these guys brings something different to the world that we haven’t seen before. All three of them are overly passionate and unique characters in their own right.

They’re probably three of the most judged people online right now. They say things that make you think twice and question everything you’ve ever known. They’re confusing a lot of the time in the most beautiful way.

Each of them has skyrocketed towards success because they have used the online channel well, by telling their own message in a simplistic way that everyone can understand. They’re not like the Ph.D. scientists of the previous generation who had lots of valuable things to say but couldn’t convey it in a way that humans can understand.

These prehistoric messages were about saying something using the biggest words possible to inflate your ego and make yourself sound smarter and superior to everyone else. These models of the world are dead. Simple, authentic, beautiful, aggressive, raw, and uncensored is the new way.

Clark Kent (Tai Lopez) – The Self Help Guy

Tai is very well poised and he is not as over the top as the other two in the way he speaks. That’s why he reminds me of Clark Kent because he’s like Superman before he changes into his costume, and runs around saving the world. Tai’s glasses look exactly like Clark Kent’s too….lol.

Don’t take this unsuspecting man as a nobody. If you have watched his 67 Steps program or seen any of his YouTube ads like I have (what’s the deal YouTube showing me his ads five times a day), you’ll see that he loves to show his amazing house, car collection, and book collection.

He doesn’t do this to show off, though, he does it so he can show us all what is possible. Tai looks like he may just be some wannabe internet guy until you hear him talk in-depth about a topic. In his 67 Steps program, the knowledge and wisdom he shares will literally knock you off your freaking seat.

This knowledge doesn’t come from nowhere, and Tai is happy to admit that; the knowledge comes from all the books he has read that you can see behind him in a lot of his videos. You literally can’t walk through some parts of his house without falling over all of his books.

He’s like a walking talking book quote guy. He can remember even the most difficult quotes to memorize. Tai’s fundamental lesson that we all need to learn is that you have to deserve your success. We all want success but do we deserve it? I don’t think we do most of the time.

We haven’t grinded our way through the daily hustle and overcame the challenges that winners do. Tai can easily look like a con man and in fact, if you Google his name you will see a bunch of bad press about him saying that he started a sugar daddy website, hires model girls for his videos, and rents his cars.

Once you get past these superficial statements which may or may not be partly true, you get to gain access to what Tai has to offer. Tai is like Tim Ferris; they’re both new age versions of Oprah Winfrey in so many ways.

His words are carefully chosen and haunting. The things he talks about are very different to anything else you’ve heard, which scares the hell out of normal people living a mediocre life, who have nothing better to do than troll him.

While I haven’t met him personally, I know two people that know him well and they assure me he’s more real than freaking Santa Clause on Christmas Eve coming down your chimney and drinking your eggnog.

Yosemite Sam (Grant Cardone) – The Entrepreneur

Grant has one of those wild cowboy accents that I wish I had. At the end of last year, I was hanging out with a few friends in Perth, and we were literally pissing ourselves for hours over some of his jokes, and the way he expresses them.

Don’t be fooled though as Grant is no joker. He’ll rip your face off when it comes to business, and he’s one of the most aggressive entrepreneurs of the modern age. He has no interest in what you or your mamma thinks of him.

Grant says a lot of wild things, especially his video about buying a jet instead of renting one. If you analyze what he’s saying, his business knowledge is incredibly profound. He uses his over the top character to build rapport with audiences all around the world, and he sure doesn’t need the money – he does it because he can.

What makes Grant the entrepreneur to watch is his understanding of sales. Many entrepreneurs forget that you can’t just build the next awesome tech startup, and then walk around like Mark Zuckerberg in the same jeans and t-shirt for the rest of your life. You actually have to sell stuff.

Grant did the hard yards selling cars and then working for a media corporation. He combined the skills of marketing and sales to accelerate his many entrepreneurial endeavors. He’s another one of those guys that will massively break you out of your comfort zone and challenge your thinking.

His reality TV show that was on a while back blew my mind. The show was designed to do one thing and one thing only: make you understand that you have to work harder than anyone else.

“You have to be able to face rejection, get hit in the face with a meat pie, and then get back up again without crying like a little baby who hasn’t had their milk”

Grants the real deal and you should never forget that. Don’t mistake his wild persona for something it’s not. He has a message, and you need to listen to it.

Gary Vaynerchuk – The Social Media Strategist

There’s no comparing Gary Vaynerchuk with anyone. He’s a character in his own right but reminds me a little of Danny Devito in one of his explosive parts in a movie when he loses the plot. Gary has redefined what the voice of social media sounds like.

He has no problem calling out fake entrepreneurs and people who are not authentic. He started out as a social media guy, but he’s almost turned into a personal development mogul like Tony Robbins. He’s learning how the way we think has more to do with our success than the social media strategy or business plan we may be trying to execute on.

Deep down, he’s a beautiful human being that greatly cares for people and wants to help wake them up from the nightmare of a life they’ve been living. He’s bold because he knows that’s the only way people will listen.

Getting people out of their own paradox of defeating thoughts is so hard, but Gary get’s it. On my own personal iPhone lock screen I have one of his famous quotes: “It Begins And Ends With You.” After a difficult day, I look at my phone and remember that instead of blaming the world for my often-difficult problems, I should remember that it is me that creates this world.

In Australia mate, Gary Vaynerchuk is a cat. Cat is Aussie slang for a cool guy. It’s not used very often, and so I think it suits Gary to a tee.

Which of these three guys do you think is number one? Whose advice is most valuable to you? Let me know on my website timdenning.net or my Facebook.

How Your Friends Determine Whether You Succeed or Not

Can anyone do without having friends? We all have our friends, we share ideas with them, talk together, have fun, and fight. Yes, that’s the baseline of friendship. But, do you know that aside from you, your friends can determine whether you achieve success or not?

There are two things in friendship which are the ability to ”love” and the ability to “influence”. This means you are loved and you are influenced. How do your friends affect your success in life? How are they one of the biggest deciding factors of your success? Let’s find out.

What type of friends do you keep? 

First, what type of friends do you keep? Who do you call your best friend? There are two different kinds of friends, good friends, and bad ones. A lot of people have lost their pathway to success and some have also found their road to success all because of the friends they keep, the people they mingle with. 

Who is your best friend? Answer carefully. Having a best friend means you find each other compatible and understanding. Analyze who your best friend is. If your best friend has not motivated you to do something positive, if who you call your bestie has never given you positive advice, lastly if your best friend has never informed and advised you on your shortcomings, then you don’t have a best friend.

This quote tells us “birds of the same feather flock together”. Countless people have changed from their good nature into a bad one all because of friends. One thing to note is, “negative people move with negative aura”. If your best friend is filled with negativity inside-out then you will surely be affected by his/her negative aura.

They influence your success with positivity or negativity 

The friends you keep can either influence you with positivity or negativity because your friends have the power to change your kind of person completely. 

This is how your friends influence you:

  1. They influence you indirectly with what they do
  2. They influence you directly by teaching and giving you advice 

Yes, that is how they influence you. For instance, you watch a movie and you like the way the actor walks. The question is if you truly like the way the actor walks, won’t you try to imitate the actor? Of course, you will.

Just the way you imitate the actor is the same way your friends can influence you with their character. However, the funny part is, they don’t have to teach you to do things like them. You just find yourself imitating and copying them gradually.

An important question to ask is, are you imitating a good friend or a bad one? If you imitate a good friend then you will be good, but if you imitate a bad person, you will surely become a bad person.

Everyone wants to succeed, a good friend will always teach, enlighten, and motivate you for success. A bad friend will only motivate you to do evil things (smoking, drinking, fight, envy,).

And you should know that things like that are a great enemy of success and even of God. So, if you have these bad elements in your life, how will you achieve success? There is no way!

And also, they can teach and advise you directly. But, what do your friends teach you? When you ask them for advice do they inspire you positively or teach you the bad stuff.? A lot of people have regretted lifelong decisions just by listening to the advice of friends. 

The company you keep has the power to influence and change you. Never forget that a positive influence will teach, motivate, and brush you up for success. While a negative influence will inspire you to become a bad person, change your good nature, and leave you with regrets in the end.

Here Are 4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Podcast, Youtube Channel or Online Show

why you should have a podcast

Confidence comes from a place of strong understanding of self. After close to three years on radio, I’ve grown from a shy introvert to a shy introvert with an extrovert persona. When the mic is turned on, I can channel a version of myself that some say is attractive, strong, and of course, confident but it wasn’t always this way.

What I want to share with you is what I discovered on this journey into broadcast that you can apply to your life, your ventures, and your personal development. This doesn’t require any fancy gear. It does require a leap of faith on your part because once you go down the road of media; it can change your life.

1. Perceived Expertise

When you go to a doctor, you expect their knowledge will guide them to a solution to your problems. When you have a show, you become your listeners’ doctor. For all the multiple thousands, maybe millions, of YouTube channels, podcasts, and user-created content in the world, each person that gets behind a mic takes a position on their passion, their opinions, and their themes.

They challenge the status quo for the benefit of their listeners in hopes to entertain and educate. With consistency on your side, those fans place you on a platform and give you permission to influence them.

2. Global Acknowledgement

One of the benefits to increasing confidence is when you receive thank you notes from people you may never meet. The feeling of enriching someone’s life from halfway around the globe, provides validation you’re enhancing someone else’s life with your wisdom and your wit.

The very first time I was told I was making a difference in someone’s life in a country other than my own, I felt like I caused massive impact that transcends my circle of influence. When you experience just how much you can cause impact and it comes back to you, it’ll change your worldview.

“Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining – it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn’t solve any problems.” – Zig Ziglar

3. Backed By Numbers

One of the most exciting ways to measure success is to quantify your growth. It’s not enough to just broadcast. Having subscribers and downloads helps to know, numerically, how well you’re doing. Word of caution. This can be a way to set yourself up for distress because of number envy but if you understand what the numbers mean; you can control the narrative of the numbers.

The major number that makes most people smile is 10,000. I’d advise it to be 1. Here’s why. As you grow in your industry, so does your reach. If you learned that the one person that subscribed totally changed for the better because of you, wouldn’t that be worth the effort?

4. Effective Communication

While it’s not talked about much, having a show is documentation. You create a dynamic account of your life, your industry, and the pulse on what’s important simply by having a show. When you find a channel to improve your communication skills, you demand attention and people will listen to you. You become more trusted as a leader and people will follow you once they believe you can lead them to their wants and needs.

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” – Tony Robbins

These insights have helped many people become leaders and, ultimately, move others to their best selves. It’s worked for me and I hope it works for you. At the end of the day, it’s all about showing up and showing out.

Have you ever thought about having a radio show? If so, what would you talk about? Let us below!
