How To Be Like James Bond
FROM THE OFFICE OF GRANT CARDONE: When Grant was young, he watched James Bond. He would thing to himself, “that’s the guy I want to be… Cardone. Grant Cardone.”
But it’s pretty obvious, in our society you can’t tell people you want to be James Bond. You’re not allowed to tell people you want to be rich. You can’t tell people you want your face to be on the side of a bus. Why?
Because people will call you arrogant, tell you it’s too much—that it’s not necessary. People will tell you to settle down, don’t aim too high, just be normal.
Sorry—Grant doesn’t want an average life… And neither should you!
As a young man, Grant wondered how to be like James Bond. He saw Bond with cool weapons, great suits, and attractive women. He also saw he was in charge, willing to disregard authority to do the right thing and be more dangerous than the bad guys. But as a young man, what really made your Uncle G aspire to be like James Bond?
The were 4 qualities that stood out for Grant more than anything else. There are for core elements of being 007, that anyone, including you, can incorporate into your life so you too can be more like James Bond. Can we share them with you?
The 4 Qualities 007 Has That You Should Too:
- CONFIDENCE: Bond knows who he is and what he can do. He has courage and takes risks. Nobody who ever makes it big in anything avoids risk. But to tackle your fears, it takes being assertive. You must be decisive that you’re going to take action in a situation, not sit back and be passive. As I say in The 10X Rule, go massive or go passive! Confident people take action, usually 10X action to make sure the job gets done.
- SELF-CONTROL Bond does what he says he’ll do. He keeps calm during drama. He doesn’t crack under pressure. This takes a certain level of self-control, something most people in our society lack. You don’t see Bond wasting his weekends. He doesn’t over-indulge. You know just by seeing him in action that he lives a disciplined life. Being disciplined and having self-control is usually one key trait that separates the successful from the failures in life.
- PHYSICALLY FIT: Bond has a good build. He’s muscular. He takes care of himself. No boy ever said to himself that he wants to be a wimp, to be out of shape, to be soft…right? While being fit, 007 is good in hand to hand combat as well. He knows how to handle weapons. In short, he’s prepared. When danger comes, he can physically handle it! You too need to be ready, to take responsibility for your surroundings.
- GREAT WARDROBE: Bond dresses nice. You don’t see him in sweat pants, he’s busting out suits, collared shirts, and well-fitting trousers. A stylish, quality wardrobe goes a long way in how you’re perceived. A flashy car like an Aston-Martin certainly doesn’t hurt either. Like it or not, people will take you more serious if you step it up a notch with how you present yourself.
These 007 Traits are GOOD for your life and business.
Be confident, be self-controlled, get physically fit, and give yourself a great wardrobe to choose from each morning. You’ll feel better about YOU and you’ll become more productive in life—and you’ll increase your income. Be great. And If this blog was helpful to you, check out Grant’s 10X Super Life Webinar.
