In this video, Alex Hormozi discusses two ways to identify potential wealth in individuals and how one can align themselves with those character traits. He emphasizes the importance of mindset shifts in perspective that allow people to have an unfair advantage. The two traits he focuses on are related to time and money.
- Measuring Sticks: Hormozi talks about the concept of measuring sticks, which are base units that people use to measure things. He explains that the bigger the unit of money that people measure things in, the more likely they are to think in terms of larger financial goals. He encourages viewers to increase their base unit of measurement over time, such as thinking in terms of 10k units, cars, houses, businesses, etc.
- Mindset Shifts: He emphasizes the importance of hanging around people whose base unit of measurement around money is far greater than yours. This helps in thinking about money in greater terms and makes it less likely for individuals to participate in low-value activities.
- Rich Dads vs. Poor Dads: Hormozi contrasts the teachings of rich and poor dads, stating that rich dads generally teach their kids to go after higher leverage opportunities with bigger base units of money.
- Align with Successful Mindsets: Surround yourself with individuals who think in terms of larger financial units. This can help you shift your mindset towards greater financial goals.
- Focus on Higher Leverage Opportunities: Seek opportunities that align with your increased base unit of measurement. Avoid low-value activities that don’t align with your financial goals.
- Educate Yourself: Consider the teachings and mindset of successful individuals and how they approach money and time. Apply these principles to your own life and business.
