Grant Cardone’s Secret To Success.
#1. Set 10x Goals.
Let’s say your goal is to make 1 million, Grant’s advice here is to aim to make 10 million and if you do fail in making 10 million and you end up making less, guess what? You will be making 1 million or more anyways. So, set higher and bigger goals. This mindset is very true and important to grasp. When you set small goals and you fail to meet them, that might be an outright failure but when you set bigger goals, even your failure is a win!
This concept of setting really bigger goals and audacious goals helps to stretch what you believe is possible. A lot of the times, we are conservative in our goal setting process. It’s one of those better-safe-than-sorry type of scenarios whereby you’d rather reach a goal with ease than challenging yourself to see what’s even possible. The reason we and people do this is because we would rather like to reach a small goal and feel successful than fall short of a wildly ambitious stretched goal.
No matter what aspect of your life you want to achieve success in, be it in personal achievement, professional accomplishments, social status or financial results, when you allow yourself to think 10 times what you deem okay to achieve, you are pushing yourself to think bigger and come up with ideas and plans that pushes you to attain such heights. To grow exponentially, the 10x thinking and mindset is one you must have.
#2. Stop All Poverty Behaviors
Mindset and behavior is everything. If you continue to indulge in poverty behaviors, you will remain poor. Here is a list of some “poverty behavior”: Indulging in drugs, abusing the use of alcohol, Spending and not investing, wasting weekends, depending on the government, always looking for shortcuts, having a victim mentality, not reading and educating yourself, refusing to network or travel and more! If you notice, most people who are poor and have the poverty mindset have similar behaviors. They are always pointing at someone else other than themselves as the reason why they are poor or here they are at the moment.
They have hour long arguments with peers on how the government is laundering all the money and how the rich are getting richer by the day. They complain, waste time and energy on things that they have zero power on or over. The aim here is to do the opposite of what they do – spend more time educating yourself, spend less times partying every weekend (I need to this myself), stay away from drugs and alcohol abuse and choose healthy living instead because you can only become and enjoy riches with a sound mind, stay away from the victim mentality as well, spend more time placing yourself in places and locations where you build your network and also experience new things.
By all means, aim to stop all poverty behaviors and start behaving like the person you dream about and want to become.
#3. Pay Attention to The Money.
There is always going to be an argument about if money equals success. Regardless of what side of the fence you are on, money will always be an important aspect of our lives and will always be an element of success. Grant Cardone’s advice is to pay attention to the money and ways to earn it.
Being a touchy subject, most people do not like talking about money, they believe money is the root of all evil, so they shy away from money conversations and situations. In order to be successful, it is important to learn skills, get information, acquire knowledge and pay attention to how you can make money with your skill, talent or service. Always pay attention to the money!
You’ve just read Grant Cardone’s top 3 tips and rules for success. The first was to set bigger goals (ideally 10x what you would love to achieve), then you should stop all poverty behaviors and lastly pay attention to the money. Lets go! Lets work! Let’s win!
