The Millionaire Booklet
Grant Cardone recently wrote a book called the Millionaire Booklet. He wrote this short 45 minute book in just under 2 hours after coming back from a charity banquet. As you can see on the left I prefer listening to my books rather than reading. This wasn’t any ordinary charity banquet – it was one for the books (literally!). The Charity’s goal was 2 Million dollars. You heard that right… 2 MILLION DOLLARS.
That’s a huge goal, but we know Grant thinks big. The first half million was donated by about 50 people with each person serving up a BMW 350i’s equivalent in cash. The second half million was donated by just 5 people with each donation being close to $100,000.
The last donation was done by 1 person; one single person donated $1,000,000 to that charity. People were cheering, crying and shocked beyond disbelief. How could one person possibly have that much to donate? Success – that’s why.
Grant was then inspired to write a book called The Millionaire Booklet in which he gives 5 essential tips for success. I don’t want to reveal all of them to you, but I did touch on the first one in my previous post.
Guide to Being Super Rich
Before you go ahead and buy Grant Cardone’s Millionaire Booklet I would recommend that you read the following books.
- Cash-flow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki
- 10X Rule by Grant Cardone
- How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie
- Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
- Sell or Be Sold by Grant Cardone
Note: Do not buy any of Robert Kiyosaki’s courses. I have in the past, and was $5000 in the hole with some serious disappointment. I won’t say it wasn’t worth the money, because it totally change my mindset. Would my mindset have changed anyways? Maybe, but thinking about what ifs isn’t really a good use of time.
Who’s got my Money
One of the “King Kong Huge” success tips that I got from Grant’s Millionaire Booklet was “Who’s got my Money?” In a nutshell “Who’s got my money?” is referring to who has big money, and how do I get in front of them. I learned this essential fact much later in my career.
If I had known that I needed to spend more time getting in front of people who had big money than I would have stopped messing around with hard selling buyers who didn’t have deep pockets. I often felt more at ease trying to sell someone who doesn’t have big money, because they were more on my playing field at the time.
The problem with that mindset is the foundation. If you can remember from my post on the three things you must believe in to be successful than you already know what the problem is. The problem is that the belief in myself isn’t strong enough to go for the big deals. I’ve got to sell myself on my ability to make $10,000 a month off a deal.
Once I’m totally sold on having the ability to get serious results for my different clients than I’ll be able to adopt the “Who’s got my money?” mindset. Mindset is key – I paid about $5000 for mine. At this point, I’d pay another five in a heartbeat.
