Here's the secret. Ready? This is going to blow your fucking mind.
The secret to being successful is...
Work really fucking hard.
Marketers and salesmen (self included) love to pad all of their self-help talk with tons of unnecessary words. But when it comes down to it, all you really need to do to be successful is just work your ass off.
I'm sure you can guess the subject of the books by their title.
Cardone is a self-proclaimed workaholic. And he's worth about $400 million dollars. Completely self-made.
He was addicted to drugs at a young age and got in lots of trouble. Finally, he went to rehab and got his life together.
During this time he was working at a car dealership because that was the only place that would hire him. They let him have his job back when he got out of rehab.
Cardone hated everything about being a car salesman. He hated the customers, hated the cars, hated his business cards... everything.
But even more than that, he hated being a fucked up addict with no money. He hated his life.
So he resolved to putt 100% of his heart and soul into becoming the best damn car salesman in the world. He got to the office earlier than everyone else and left later. Within a few months he was the top producer at the dealership.
Now he runs a successful consulting company and owns hundreds of millions of dollars in real estate. He has his own private jet. He's worth mega bucks.
I use Cardone as an example because his whole pitch about success is that you need to work 10x harder than you think you need to. The first time I heard this, a lightbulb went off in my head.
I had listened to self-help stuff before, but most of it was filled with little tips and tricks on how you could convince yourself to work.
Cardone was the first one who explicitly stated that to be successful, you just have to work a lot harder than everyone else.
Anyway, not to toot my own horn or anything, but I am definitely working my ass off now.
- I wake up at 6 AM every day.
- I manage almost 60 Instagram accounts
- I'm growing a personal IG page so I can build my personal brand
- I write 3-5 articles a day on Steemit (mostly crypto)
- I work out every day
- I try to have a social life and meet new people every day (staying in a hostel makes this easier)
And before this I was working my ass off in Australia. 6 days a week selling products face to face. If I didn't sell, I didn't make money.
It was such a stressful job that I started to plan my escape. I knew that when I finished that job, I would run away to a cheap country in SE Asia and work on making money online.
I paid such a high price to get to where I am today - and I don't want to go back to where I was, not for any amount of money.
I love being able to work from my computer. I love that I can walk 10 minutes and be at a gorgeous beach with hot girls walking around in thong bikinis all year round. I love that I pay less than $300 a month for rent and can eat delicious street food every day.
So that's why I work my ass off. I have a reason to do it.
What about you? Do you want to quit your job and make money online? Let me know what your biggest problem with it is and I'll try to help
