Grant Cardone’s 10 Tips To Stay Positive
You got the negative creeping up on you? Do you struggle with negativity? Would you like to be more positive? And it’s hard, I get it. Traditional media has a massive negative bias and will sensationalize everything with that negative bias in mind to keep you watching. Social media has this exact same bias. It’s almost as if your good natured noggin is under assault. How many Debbie Downers are around you at any moment?
This is exactly why there is so much truth in Grant’s principle that states “people will pay more for a great attitude over a great product.”
And it’s also why you need an action plan on how to protect yourself every day from the invading forces of negativity. Whether that’s someone you’re close to, AM talk radio, cable news or social media, you have to protect yourself.
Here’s 10 Tips to Stay Positive
- Counter negativity by surrounding yourself with positive images and messages: On my mirror in the bathroom with a dry erase marker is a positive affirmation to myself. On the center console of my car is another one. Between the glass and the wood of my desk are images of my goals. It’s everywhere.
- Separate yourself from the negative people. This may mean physically but it definitely means emotionally. Moods can be contagious. And they’re also a choice. Just because your Aunt Rose is convinced we’re on Flight #666 on Handbasket Airlines doesn’t mean you need to take a seat with her. That’s hers. Doesn’t have to be yours.
- Read positive books and listen to and watch positive programs. What are you feeding your brain? Is what you listen to and watch inspiring? Does it make you better, stronger, richer? Because if not, it’s doing the exact opposite.
- Exercise every day. Healthy body. Healthy Mind. Nurture your meat suit. Quality exercise should leave you stronger, faster, leaner and better. The level of fitness you’re at right now is what you want to improve on. This is You-Vs-You.
- Go to sleep earlier and wake up earlier. Seriously, nothing good for you happens after 10pm. And you get a head start on the world when you beat the sun up.
- Eat a healthier diet and drink more water. How do you feel after a #2 combo with a 55 gallon drum of soda? Remember, nurture your meat suit. Consume fresh, easy to digest foods and drink a gallon of water everyday and see what happens to your energy levels.
- Avoid drugs and alcohol. From personal experience learned the hard way, there is nothing in this world that can happen to you that you need to burry under a bottle of Jack or a Peter Tosh level blunt. Celebration and ceremony. Leave it at that if at all. I haven’t had a drink since 07 and it was the best decision of my life.
- Write down your future goals in the present tense. The universe only knows one time and that time is now. If you’re going to put your intentions into the universe best to do it in a language it understands so it can help. Also, think about something you’d like to create in your life. Wishing and hoping for it will get you just about jack squat. Imagine that goal or target happening right now. How do you feel? What if you carried that feeling with you when you write your goals and through out the day?
- Commit to a disciplined schedule. Wanna meet the devil? Have nothing to do. He’ll show up right on time. Typically brings his fiddle too.
- Fill up your free time with activities that contribute to your goals. If time is money, are you spending time or investing time. What will be the ROI of the moment you’re in right now? If what you’re doing right now getting you closer to or further away from your goals?
The quality of your time on planet Earth is and always has been your responsibility and completely under your control. If response is an ability then that means you can improve. It means that you have options and that you chose your response. And anyone who tries to convince you otherwise is not looking out for you or your best interests…
