In a short while, I’m going to rewire your mind with The 10X Rule book by Grant Cardone and his 7 ways to execute and become successful.
In fact, when I first read the book 10X Rule last year, it hit my brain to boost my own self-development to the next level.
And since then, Grant Cardone has become my mentor through his resources, books, and videos.
Without a doubt, all chapters of The 10X Rule book are full of wisdom, but chapter 22 struck my attention immensely.
That chapter is called Successful or Unsuccessful?
Because it resonates with Pat VC’s philosophy of personal and professional development to recondition your mindset.
For that reason, in this part, I’ve handpicked 7 Grant Cardone’s ways that he has discovered about successful people.
So, let’s jump in together with my comments and my interpretation.
7. The 10X Rule – Seek To Solve Problems
Listen, some industries or people create problems, and other industries or people solve those problems.
So what does it mean for you?
It means you must stay alarmed and learn from it.
Because when you see the problem and you solve it, you will be rewarded.
And of course…
Because every problem is a product.
at Pat VC’s personal and professional development, we solve the problem of people’s mindsets who live in scarcity.
It means their annual income is not more than USD 70,000, and they live from paycheck to paycheck.
Now, this is a mass audience but we target only those who…
- are Doers,
- want to do more,
- who are interested in climbing the wealth pyramid and not staying average.
And the way we do it is using the 7 Wealth Stages framework.
Now, as Grant Cardone said.
“One of the best ways to distinguish yourself from the masses is to make yourself who makes the situation better, not worse.” - Grant Cardone
It means to seek to solve other people’s problems.
Would you agree?
6. You Have To Persist
The truth is,
as soon as you set off on a step-by-step journey to financial independence and prosperity, you will face setbacks, unexpected events, or negative feedback.
But listen, when you are determined in your course, you will eventually make it.
And this is a mantra of our Pat VC personal and professional development.
Look, I observe around dozens of wannabes, who just wish or want somehow to escape that scarcity level in the wealth pyramid.
But they will not!
Because they aren’t persistent, as it requires a lot of work to escape their comfort zone and start doing uncomfortable things.
As Grant Cardone said.
“To be persistent is a trait you do or do not have. It is something that you must develop.” - Grant Cardone
In this case,
you have to push and force yourself to take as Grant says, “10X action until all resistance morphs into support.”
Unfortunately, most people give up on the ability to persist.
So what about you?
5. Take Risks
You must engrave in your mind that successful people take risks.
Listen, when I understood this, it was an aha moment.
And yes, it took me a few years to grasp the point.
But The 10X Rule book enlightened and underlined the fact.
In addition, Grant Cardone’s part about Las Vegas casinos reminded me of the following story when I was living in Manila.
I was sitting at Rizal Park in Manila and suddenly one older man sat next to me. We were having a typical chat about life in the Philippines, and I found he had worked at a casino. He started talking about how a casino manipulates “average” players to almost always lose…
You see, unsuccessful people won’t make it.
It means you must-have status and recognition, so you must invest yourself first.
And it applies to any part of your life.
Because you were taught…
- to play safe,
- don’t take risks,
- be quiet,
- don’t create attention,
- and do what you are told to do.
But you know what?
And as Grant Cardone said.
“Successful people are willing to put it all out there and know, regardless of the outcome, that they can go back and do it again.” - Grant Cardone
4. Create Wealth
In the the 10X Rule book Grant Cardone says that creating wealth is about attitude.
And that’s how successful people act.
Because average people who live in scarcity believe that they must work and sell their souls to the devil of the company to make money and help someone else become more successful.
On the other hand, successful people know the way to generate wealth is about…
- Implementing new ideas and bringing them to market fast.
- Creating solutions to problems as well as creating products and services.
But the most important thing that Grant Cardone mentioned is:
“Successful people know there is an infinite amount of money and money exists in abundance. And that money flows to those who create products or services because in this way wealth is not limited to a monetary supply.” - Grant Cardone
Do you get it?
Ponder on it how different the growth mindset of successful people is…
3. Readily Take Action
The whole 10X Rule book is about taking massive action.
It’s about not competing but dominating and taking 10X actions in every area of your life.
And I cannot agree more.
And I feel the same. I cannot just sit a few hours and do nothing.
I feel guilty after that because I don’t learn anything or I don’t produce any productivity.
On the other hand, when you look at unsuccessful “average” people, they just talk about their plans and hopefully one day they will take action.
But in most cases, it won’t happen.
Tell me, how many times have you witnessed it?
And the most important part to remember here is this.
It is about self-discipline.
You must develop your self-discipline daily with actions.
Because when you take action, you form a habit and that habit becomes in your control, which creates success.
2. The 10X Rule – Focus on “Now”
There are only two times for successful people.
The first time is “now” and the second time is “the future”.
But observe around you how unsuccessful people always spend their time talking about the past. They make a lot of excuses because they refer to the past that something didn’t work for them.
It’s frustrating, isn’t it?
So I want you to focus on NOW.
Because successful people keep focusing on actions today that will affect their future.
And you must think the same way, take incremental steps, and do not procrastinate.
Do not be overwhelmed by the end goal. Instead, prepare a plan, break it down into small tasks and work on it daily.
Again, you must embrace self-discipline and take action when other people think about that plan and procrastinate.
And it’s absolutely true what Grant Cardone said.
“You will be amazed how much you can get done when you quit thinking, calculating, and procrastinating and make a habit to act NOW.” - Grant Cardone
It means you must discipline yourself to execute now, no later but NOW.
1. Be Goal-Oriented and Have a High Level Of Motivation
At Pat VC’s personal and professional development, we continually say how critical it is to be goal-oriented and how critical it is to be motivated to work.
Because every person or company must have goals to move forward.
All successful people have dreams and big goals. It means they are goal-oriented.
Remember the following Grant Cardone’s saying.
“If you don’t stay focused on your goals, you will spend your life achieving the objectives of other people - especially those who are goal-oriented.” - Grant Cardone
In my words,
Just think about it.
And to keep going, you must have a high level of motivation.
Because when you motivate yourself, it keeps you goal-driven.
And you take the necessary amount of action to accomplish what you need to do today.
But when you look at unsuccessful people, their motivation is very low.
And the biggest takeaway of this part is this.
When someone was asking Grant in his seminar the question “how do you stay motivated?”
He replied, “I created new reasons to show up.”
Just ponder on it…
It’s Time For You To Take Massive Action With The 10X Rule Book
When you read The 10X Rule book, it gets in your mind to become super productive.
And as I mentioned, chapter 22 hit my brain most because I’m deeply interested in the concept of how successful people think and how to recondition mindset.
So remember this:
Just as simple as it sounds…
