grant cardone biography“Leaving your comfort zone is hard. Staying broke is hard. Pick your hard.”

“Do what you are scared to do and watch your confidence grow.”

“The weak compete. The strong dominate.”

 

“It’s been said that FEAR stands for False Events Appearing Real, which aptly implies that most of what you’re afraid of doesn’t ever come to pass. Fear, for the most part, is provoked by emotions, not rational thinking. And in my humble estimation, emotions are wildly overrated   and the scapegoat many people use for their failure to act.”

“Quit sharing bad news and gossip, you aren’t a garbage truck.”

“Set no targets and you will get nowhere.”

“No matter how much it may seem otherwise, no one has control of your life but you.”

“If you don’t confront the tough stuff it will always have control over you.”

“I don’t have time is the biggest lie you tell yourself.”

“Success is no different than any other skill. Duplicate the actions and mind-sets of successful people and you will create success for yourself.”

“All your dreams await just on the other side of your fears.”

grant cardone biography“Success is a full time job.”

“You sleep to rest the body. You wake up to make your dreams a reality.”

“I don’t go to work to work, I hate that saying! I want you to go to work to prosper. Go to work for freedom. This is what wealthy people do different than anybody else. Wealthy people work for freedom. They’re not working for comfort items, not for a weekend, they’re working for freedom.”

“Realistic thinking is based on what others think is possible—but they are not you and have no way of knowing your potential and purposes.”

“What if the only thing standing in the way of your greatness was that you just had to go after everything obsessively, persistently, and as though your life depended on it?”

  1. “Set no targets and you will get nowhere.”

    I tend to not set enough big goals out of fear of not meeting the goals.

    “Spectators pay, players get paid.”

    I like this one because I have made some huge strides in my Affiliate Marketing business start-up.

    1. Hi Alexander! Im happy to hear about the new opportunities you’re having in your business startup. Im glad these quotes resonated. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hello

    I have never really heard about this guy. I guess we all have our favorite entrepreneur we look upon. Reading this story about him makes me tickle in my body. Someone told me once…It’s all about to make a decision. A decision to change your life, to be committed. Many of us think we have become committed, but when we turn on Netflix to watch our favorite show for a few hours. Are we then really committed?What is your favorite quote?

    1. I don’t think I have a favorite quote because there are so many good ones, and some are good for certain situations. I do like his quote “Never lower your target; increase your actions.”

  3. Hello and thank you for this amazing article Tiffany. I was always interested in investing in myself but never really knew how and what does it mean to invest in yourself. Tony Robbins books states that learning new skills everyday makes you better and because of this you provide a great value. I agree on that one.

    As for Grant Cardone, I am really amazed with how serious and dedicated he is. There is no way to fail if you outwork everyone. That is the key to success. If you shift your mind to work mode, and understand that this is what will bring you the success – you will reach stars.

    I will definitely get to know more about Grant Cardone’s work and his books. Do you have any other authors you recommend like a must know for success in life?

    Thanks,

    Strahinja

    1. Hi Strahinja!

      Grant Cardone’s tips on work ethic will definitely get you pumped up. There are quite a few others that have been very influential for me that you can check out. It looks like you’re already familiar with Tony Robbins, so I won’t mention him, but you should check out the others in my “Success tips from Successful Entrepreneurs” category. I keep updating it because there’s been so many great entrepreneurs I’ve watched. Right now, I have John Maxwell, Michael Hyatt, Oprah Winfrey, Daymond John, Russell Brunson, Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn, Del Walmsley, and others. You should check that category out. I’ll keep adding to it.

  4. Hi Tiffany,

    You have provided us with a wonderful collection of Grant’s quotes.  My particular favourite :

     “As long as you are alive, you will either accomplish your OWN goals & dreams, or be USED as a resource to accomplish someone else’s!”  

    For me, this quote provides a great reason for anyone who is sitting on the fence because they are feeling undecided about whether they should stay in a job to stay in their own comfort zone, or whether they should take that step and the risk to start their own business.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Best wishes 

    Debs
