I am sorry for the delay in posting. Geez what a year end and beginning! I hope that all went well for you. Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back on the wagon and spit some more 10X knowledge!
As Grant said, “anything done at an average action will not succeed.” This is the core concept of taking 10X action. Normal action will generate average results. Who wants to be average? Not me! The hard part is the 10X work that is needed to be successful which is why there are so many “average Joe’s” in the world.
Average, as an adjective, is defined as “typical; common; ordinary” by dictionary.com. On the other hand, extraordinary is defined as “very unusual or remarkable” by the same website. Which one of these adjectives would you prefer to be suggested when someone is speaking about you? I know that I don’t want to be referred to typical or common and I bet that you wouldn’t be fulfilled if people saw you this way. Worse off, if you see yourself that way, there is serious work to be done.
How do you become remarkable? “10X your life baby!”
Grant Cardone suggests to write your goals as if they have already happened. For example, “I have a net worth of over a million dollars.” “I own the largest limo fleet in Southern California (if that’s your dream).” Goals should be set across all aspects of your life, not just financial or business related. It’s important to make sure that your goals are equal to your potential but are NEVER realistic or reasonable goals. Cardone provides the following advice when setting goals:
- Set goals for you!
- Anything is possible!
- You have much more potential than you realize
- Success is your duty, responsibility and obligation
- There is no shortage of success
- Regardless of the size of the goal it will require work
Remember that your goals can be manipulated by your surroundings, so surround yourself with positive people who are successful and have reached their goals or are on the right path to getting there. “You are who you surround yourself with.” I’m not sure who said that but it’s a really good quote! Positivity is contagious!
Write out your goals based on this advice and be willing to rewrite them every day until you achieve them, is Grant’s advice. Also, set 10X targets for goals and align them with other purposes. Write them down every night before bed and in the morning when you wake up. This will re-enforce these goals which will help to bring them to fruition!
Well peeps…this brings up to the end of my Grant Cardone piece. I will back sooner than later with some more inspiring, motivational and positive info to help bring or keep that smile on your face! J
