Are you thinking in terms of your potential?
Grant had to do a lot of work to get his mind right. In fact everyone who’s ever created a large amount of success had to do a lot of work to get their mind right. When Grant was a kid, scarcity was all around him. He was told to be happy with what I had, that we were better off than so many others. Both his mom and dad thought the same way.
Thinking like they did would have never given Grant the life that he has today. Now he can help many more people than he could if he’d have adopted his parent’s mindset.
When you think small, you focus and worry about YOUR problems:
- your car payment
- your rent
- your job
- your health
Here’s the deal: it’s selfish. Yes, that’s right, selfish. And it also limits your potential, your true ability to expand and accomplish exceptional, 10X things.
If you’re not where you want to be it’s because your mind is not right. It’s your mindset that dictates what actions you will take. And it’s your actions that will produce the outcomes that you want.
Mindset can be defined as attitude, disposition, or intention.
According to Webster, mindset is defined as a mental attitude or inclination; a fixed state of mind; a mental inclination, tendency, or habit.

Thinking big takes the same amount of effort as thinking small.” -Grant Cardone
Where’s your intention? Not what, but where. Is it on just getting by or is your intention on something massive? If you don’t know something is possible, then you won’t take the steps to reach it. So, if your attitude and intention towards money or success is negative, how can you possibly be able get it?
To get to your potential, to be 10X, you have to expand your mindset to massive levels.
Reprogram Your Mind
Your thoughts are in your control. Embrace the fact that what is happening to you right now is because of you. It might be a tough pill to swallow but you have to if you want to be 10X.
Grant says, “I didn’t always take 100% responsibility for everything in my life. I had to enroll in a rehab facility before I realized how out of control my life had gotten.”
If you want control in your life, you have to master your mind. You have to reprogram it, to think differently, to think 10X. It saved Grant’s life and will save yours too.
Before you say, “I don’t need extraordinary levels of success” or “success is not every- thing” or “I just want to be happy” or whatever else you may be mumbling to yourself at this very moment, understand something: in order to get to the next level of whatever you’re doing, you must think and act in a wildly different way than you previously have been.
To control your life and reach your potential, you must control your mind. 10X thinking means approaching life with the right mindset. If you don’t change the way you think, you will never change your life in a large, significant way.
