This is possibly the book I enjoyed reading the most in 2014. It made me feel pumped and introduced me to pig latin.
Grant Cardone has a strong personality and strong opinions and they definitely come through in the book.
- You will see laziness when you fail. You get lazy because you are afraid of failing again.
- America is a country of one uppers.
- Whatever business you’re in, first and foremost you are in the people business.
- Always agree with the customer.
- People believe what they see more than what they hear;show, don’t tell.
- Rich people buy time. Poor people waste it.
- Work your powerbase. That is, friends, family, fans and existing customers.
- Meals, e.g. lunch time are opportunities to sell. Don’t waste time eating with colleagues – you can’t sell to them. Go out and eat with customers.
- Be seen where your ideal client is.
- If you aren’t where you want to be in life you need to work every angle, you need to work every minute and you need to seize every opportunity: you owe it to your family, you owe it to yourself, you owe it to your future.
- There is no treasure greater than a great attitude and there is no way to get a great treasure without it.
- You are a product of everything you surround yourself with: TV, news, people, etc.
- Obscurity is a bigger problem than being broke.
- Anything lots of people do can’t be good for you!
- He thinks most people indulge themselves in far too much leisure – they ain’t done ickday all week and then when Sunday comes they say,“The good book says I should rest.”As far as Grant Cardone is concerned, he believes God did that because he built the whole world between Monday and Saturday so he was entitled – what have you done?!
I loved the bit where he’s analyzing how much time there is in a day to spend working (I paraphrase): if I spend 2 hours with my kids, 1 hour with my wife, that’s 3 hours with my family; plus 7 hours in bed – what does that leave me? 14 hours. Wait am I doing this right, yep, that’s right that leaves me exactly 14 hours to do what? Grow my bidness!
Grant Cardone just made the word bidness cool for me because he’s cool and he uses it.
I was a little lost when he used the words itchbay, ickday, itshay but it later transpired they were b*tch, d*ck and sh*t in pig latin. It sounds a lot more acceptable in in pig latin.
In summary, I love Grant Cardone and I would definitely do one of his sales programs.
