Grant Cardone on Impressing Yourself

What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Focus on that. Obsess about it. Don’t let anything stop you. That’s what Grant Cardone, author, speaker and business expert, wants you to do with everything in your life. Obsession is normally perceived as a negative attribute, but Cardone says it’s the only way to achieve greatness. Listen in as SUCCESS Contributing Editor Don Yaeger and Cardone chat about overcoming failure, owning up to your mistakes and the importance of learning from like-minded people.

This interview appears on the SUCCESS Talks Collection November 2016.

  •         You are the only one of your kind. As unique as a thumbprint. Learn why you should embrace that difference to propel yourself toward success.
  •         Hear why Cardone would rather be criticized than not talked about at all.

Favorite quote from this episode:

“I think everybody has this gnawing inside of them, this obsession—a healthy one—that if they would just lend credence and flow power to this obsession, they would be successful.”

—Grant Cardone
