Grant Cardone says burn the place down
Once you start taking 10X actions in your life, you must continue to add wood to your fire until you either start a brushfire or a bonfire—or as Grant Cardone says, burn the place down.
Add wood to your fire and you’ll eat your fears
What does that mean; burn the place down? It means, don’t rest and don’t stop—ever. Keep stacking wood until the fire is so hot and burns so brightly that not even competitors or market changes can put your fire out. Your fire has to continue to be stoked, and that means more wood, more fuel, and in your case, more actions.
It’s easiest and most natural to continue taking massive actions when you are winning— and winning is only possible with massive actions. When you begin to “heat things up,” you’ll quickly become aware—even obsessed—with the possibilities before you and will start to see new levels of positive results.
An Object In Motion Continues In Motion
Keep taking action until you can’t stop your forward momentum. It’s somewhat like a lawn or garden; no matter how green it gets or beautiful the flowers, you must continue to tend to it. You have to keep mowing, trimming, edging, watering, and planting; otherwise, your grass will turn brown and your flowers will die. That is the case for success as well. There can never be enough wood on your fire. You can never take too much action or accumulate too much success. Most people don’t even get in the neighborhood of building a bonfire.
Fear is the great indicator
If you are going to keep “stacking wood“, you need to realize that fear isn’t bad or something to avoid; conversely, it’s something you want to seek and embrace.
Fear is actually a sign that you are doing what’s needed to move in the right direction.
An absence of concerns signals that you are only doing what’s comfortable for you—and that will only get you more of what you have right now. As strange as it may sound, youwantto be scared until you have to push yourself to new levels to experience fear again.
In fact, the only thing that scares me is a complete lack of fear!
Fear doesn’t just tell you what to do; it also tells you when to do it. Ask yourself what time it is at any point in the day, and the answer is always the same:now. The time is always now—and when you experience fear, it’s a sign that the best time to take action is at that very moment.
All the excuses in the world won’t change one simple fact: that fear is a sign to do whatever it is that you fear—and do it quickly. Everyone fears something in life; however, it’s what we each do with that fear that distinguishes us from others.
Eat your fears; don’t feed them by backing off or giving them time to grow. Do this by taking 10X actions and “burn the place down“.
