Jay Papasan - Millionaire Psychology
The 15th episode of the Psychology Podcast with Daniel Karim features Jay Papasan, vice president of Keller Williams and co-author of the international bestseller The One Thing.
Why I wanted to learn from Jay Papasan?
One of the intentions of my psychology podcast is to deconstruct hyper competent people and understand where those 1%lers get their outstanding results from.
Growing up, money was always something that people around me didn’t like to talk about, but I always knew I had to educate myself on that very subject in order to live the life I wanted to live and go to the places I wanted to go.
This is why I reached out to Jay because I wanted to learn, and luckily for me, he was willing to teach.
Contrary to other finance gurus and bullshit artists, Jay Papasan is a no-nonsense guy who is a master of his craft and actually breaks down the numbers of what has to happen for you to become financially free.
In our conversation we discuss Jay’s journey of becoming, what he learned from interviewing over a hundred self-made millionaires and his take on psychology and success.
