The Path To Success: Two Things You Must Do
FROM THE DESK OF GRANT CARDONE: There are 2 things to do this week to get on the path to success. Do this, and you’ll be successful. Period.
Do you want to get super rich? If you’re like me, you know that you’re capable of doing unbelievable things. I believe that you can do it but you’ll need money and lots of it to reach your full potential. “Should I put my 5K in stocks or cryptocurrency?” I get questions like this all the time.
There are 2 things I tell people looking to get on the path to success:
- Spend money on yourself
- Spend money on a sure thing
The Path to Success Tip One: Spend Money On Yourself
People don’t create wealth because they never invest enough in a deal to get a big pay off. Significant wealth creators make big plays, not little ones. If you have a little bit of money, the only big play that you can make is to invest yourself.
Spend your money on:
- developing new skills,
- gaining knowledge, and
- making powerful connections.
You can never lose when you invest in yourself. What skills can you learn that will increase your ability to collect money from others?
When I was 25, I spent my last $3K on an audio program and I can honestly say the investment and commitment to go “all in” are the reasons for my success today. Before that, I was addicted to drugs and obsessed with all the wrong things.
One single investment changed the whole course of my life. Do you see how powerful investing in yourself can be? The sad truth is that most people don’t take it seriously. Maybe you have a friend that talks about riches and glory but won’t spend a few thousand dollars to learn a skill or make a connection that can make their dreams come true.
How does that make sense?
Those kinds of folks, if they do anything at all, look for opportunities to get rich quick without thinking of how to create wealth that can never be destroyed. Don’t let that be you. Spend money on yourself so that you can get your income to massive levels. Once it’s up, you’ll be ready to start making investments in income-producing assets. Take your money and use it to become better. Add skills and your value will increase in the marketplace.
