6 Lessons of Success from Real Estate Guru Grant Cardone
1. Do the Millionaire Math
How much money have you made in your life? After your spending and taxes, it’s easy to not think about the total amount we have made in our lives.
Is your goal to be a millionaire? Hundred millionaire? Billionaire?
Let’s say you want to earn a million dollars as it seems to be a popular goal for a lot of people in today’s world.
As Grant Cardone has pointed out, it’s not as difficult as you might think. Start by doing the “millionaire math”:
5 Ways to Earn $1,000,000
- Salaried Job = $100K — 10 years to reach $1,000,000
- Salaried Job = $200K — 5 years
- 5,000 people buy a $200 product
- 2,000 people buy a $500 product
- 1,000 people buy a $1,000 product
Have you ever broke it down that way? I’ve seen several bloggers and online entrepreneurs routinely make over $100,000 a month. One of the biggest revenue sources?
$197 – $497 products, usually in the form of online courses or coaches.
If you don’t have a blog or website don’t worry. I think there is a ton of value in having a passionate side hustle you can earn a million dollars by investing, saving, and earning more.
Most people don’t become millionaires because they lack the belief that it’s possible. Grant Cardone shows that clearly, it’s not the case.
Start by setting and writing your goals to understand what you want to achieve financially. Once you know what you want to achieve you can create a plan to make it happen.
2. Save Money for 10X Opportunities
Saving money is important but Grant Cardone has an even better way to look at saving. You need money to invest.
Not necessarily in the stock market but in any opportunity that comes your way. Whether it’s starting a business, buying stocks after a crash or some other opportunity. Without having money saved you can’t take advantage of great opportunities.
The majority of people don’t save because they suffer from lifestyle inflation. If you get a raise or bonus do you adjust your lifestyle or do you keep everything as is?
If you raise your standard of living with each raise you will never make any progress towards your financial goals. Instead, keep your lifestyle the same and start saving money for future opportunities.
3. Don’t Be Scared of Debt
If you’re a reader of Dave Ramsey or Suzie Orman then you’re probably ready to quit reading. But hear me out. No, I’m not recommending you go and max out all your credit cards.
As Grant points out, “All the big companies, Google, Coca-Cola, Apple — they all use debt. Debt is the reason we are able to put 5% or more down and get a mortgage.”
While I agree some debt is bad, don’t be afraid to use it as leverage to grow a business or buy a property. To become a self-made millionaire you will need to take risks, just make sure they are calculated ones!
4. Don’t Be Normal
Grant and I agree 100% on this, don’t be normal if you want to live a great life and earn money.
This quote says it perfectly, “Let’s face it, even though there is plenty of money floating around on this planet, most people don’t have much of it. It’s because most people won’t take more actions to get more money.”
You need to take massive action to change your life in any way. Whether it’s changing your personal, financial, or professional life. If you stay normal you will have a “normal” life.
5. Create Multiple Income Streams
Grant Cardone didn’t get super wealthy from a single income stream. He did by growing his businesses, buying property, and diversifying.
If you depend solely on your job you are at the mercy of your employer.
It’s been said that the average millionaire has seven income streams. How many do you have?
6. Set Big Financial Goals
Do you have an amount of money you want to earn this year? If you asked friends or family do you think they would have a net worth they are trying to achieve? My guess is probably not.
As I said earlier, money is taboo in our society and people are quick to get defensive talking about money. But if you don’t have a financial goal it will be easy to never hit it.
If you want to become a self-made millionaire you have to have big goals. There are no downsides of dreaming big in any area of life.
Start small, you won’t become a millionaire tomorrow just because you read this post and create an income target. Start by trying to make $500, $1,000 or $5,000 extra a month.
Wanting to make “X amount” probably won’t be the motivator you need. Instead, think of the financial goal and what you will do with it. Maybe it will help you pay off debt, save up for a down payment, take a vacation, or quit your job.
Whatever it is, make sure your goal isn’t just money, tie it to a reason that will keep you motivated.
Once you start hitting your goals keep increasing them to reach new levels of success. He talks about this even more in this Lewis Howes interview.
