I had never heard of Grant Cardone until this project, but believe me, the points he has made in his book are right on the nail. We all know these things, but to hear it so point blank is definitely an eye opener. He comes across as arrogant, but I feel that he’s just saying it like it is. Most of this chapters and topics relate back to being “above average”. Working 10x harder than the next person will show 10x greater success. Being average is always wiped out by anything “above average”.
Take credit of when you win or don’t win. Never play the victim role. Victims are never secure and turn over responsibility to another party. Negativity is a huge problem. Negativity comes from our family, co-workers, and surroundings. It’s killing us. Motivate yourself and be positive. This is not always easy, so get your family involved. Criticism is a sign of success. People who don’t take enough action will criticize you. Success is our duty, obligation, and responsibility. It’s our obligation, not an option. You cannot lay low to avoid attention.
Multiply and controlling time: Grant discusses how to take control of your time and not allowing other to do so. People act like work is something to get through, rather than viewing it as a reward. To be successful, it needs to be something you want to do. Work harder while at the office which will allow you to create more time. Generate changes, challenge yourself. I like the point he makes regarding making the most of your time. 15 phone calls in 15 minutes, where the other person may make 15 calls in 1 hour. The first person now has 45 minutes freed to do other things. The marketplace is brutal and will punish those who don’t take the right amount of action. Quit thinking about competing. Cardone states “Competition is for sissies”. Dominate vs Compete; Dominating is healthy where competing is unhealthy.
His teachings can be applied to any aspect of our life including family, work, school, etc. It’s time to put the sign up that reads “No Negativity Allowed Here”.
