11 Limiting Beliefs And What To Do About Them
11 Limiting Beliefs And What To Do About Them  What we say to ourselves sometimes is how we make sense of not living to our fullest potential.  And understand what these 11 phrases I pulled from an older blog post of Grant's actually mean will revolutionize the way you interpret some everyday comments you hear day in and day out.  Take note of these limiting beliefs and ask yourself, do you say these often?  What level of agreement do you have with them?  Are you allowing this line of thinking to keep you from creating the life you want and deserve?   FULL TEXT:  https://cardonesolutions.com/limiting-beliefs/   FREE ACCESS TO CARDONE U:  https://cardonesolutions.com/cardoneufree  LEARN MORE ABOUT COACHING:  https://cardonesolutions.com/coaching

The shocking truth behind why you're not getting paid
The shocking truth behind why you're not getting paid  "Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough to not quit."   -George Carlin  There is a very simple pragmatic truth to the reason why you're not getting paid enough.  This truth can be better explained with a short story.  Have you ever heard the one about a plumber who went to a homeowner, whacked a pipe with a wrench and ended a leak?  “That will be $200,” he says.  The homeowner replied, “You were only here for a few minutes and I only saw you hit the pipe with your wrench. I demand an itemized bill.”  The plumber wrote the following...   FULL TEXT https://cardonesolutions.com/why-youre-not-getting-paid/   FREE ACCESS TO CARDONE U:  https://cardonesolutions.com/cardoneufree   LEARN MORE ABOUT COACHING:  https://cardonesolutions.com/coaching

How do you dominate?
SMALL GOALS WILL ALWAYS LEAVE YOU COMPETING WITH OTHERS  A STERN WARNING FROM GRANT CARDONE:  How do you dominate?  It starts with your thinking.  How many times do we see people set goals and then either never get started or bail on them?  Frequently and regularly, most of us have been warned against setting goals “too high.”  The reality is that if you start small, you are probably going to go small.  People’s failure (myself and Grant included) to think big enough usually means they will never act big enough, often enough, or persistently enough!  After all, who gets excited about so-called realistic goals?  FULL TEXT:  https://cardonesolutions.com/how-do-you-dominate/  FREE ACCESS TO CARDONE U:  https://cardonesolutions.com/cardoneufree  LEARN MORE ABOUT COACHING:  https://cardonesolutions.com/coaching

Seizing Control Today
Seizing Control Today. Today, put 100% of your attention ONLY on the things YOU can control.   Focus on what you have immediate control over and on what you can do, not what you can't.  This would include, but not limited to your personal development, healthy diet & exercise, managing your mindset & attitude, responding NOT reacting.  Bottom line here is you are either getting better at being your divine self today or you are getting worse.  Sorry, there is no middle of the road here...  And if you're not in control of these things then WHO is?

The only person who can create your future is you (but we can help) Ya know, when you think about it, most of what people are afraid of has never, and probably will never even happen to them.  Which is nuts when you consider that most of those fears come from something that happened to someone else. It is because of these irrational fears that most people in general never make any attempts to bring their dreams to life…  They are too afraid to even try because they’ve been convinced that nothing good can happen to them.

One proven way to increase sales (and most certainly gross profit)
One proven way to increase sales (and most certainly gross profit)  One proven way to increase sales and most certainly gross profit is by presenting options to your prospect in your proposals. Options can be a great way to capture deals that you are missing now. Keep in mind, when a buyer says “No”, often times they are just saying “No” to what you have presented, and in my experience this arises more often than not when only one option is presented by the sales person. Choices support decision making."  -Grant Cardone  Options give your buyer the ability to compare and in most cases lock in on what they really want and need, then select the package that is most appropriate for solving their problem...  FULL TEXT:  https://cardonesolutions.com/one-proven-way-to-increase-sales/

The reality is that people have changed over the last fifty years, so the sales process must change with them.   https://cardonesolutions.com/perfect-sales-process/

Grant Cardone's 10 Commandments of Sales
Grant Cardone's 10 Commandments of Sales  There's an infographic I saw on LinkediN recently that reminded me of an ancient blog post of Grant's that was probably from somewhere between 2010 & 2011 called The 10 Commandments of Sales Success.  So I dug up the blog post and...  Remember that scene in Mel Brook's History of The World where he's playing Moses and comes down off the mountain with 15 Commandments, drops a tablet and immediately reduces the number to 10?  Hysterical, right?  So, as I was looking at the two lists I noticed a slight difference between them.   Somewhere between 2010 and 2021, the 10 Commandments of Sales changed or morphed or perhaps fell victim to another set of commandments (like marketing) and got repurposed.  All I can tell you at this point is that there's probably 12 commandments of sales here, not 10 and here they are...  https://cardonesolutions.com/10-commandments-of-sales/

5 Sales Myths That Are Total BS (and killing your production)
5 Sales Myths That Are Total BS (and killing your production)  Cold calling doesn’t work. Selling through social channels is the only way. It’s all about digital marketing. More leads means better leads. Automation has replaced person to person contact. Buyers know everything now. Nobody can be sold unless they want to be. People don’t even want to talk to a salesperson anymore....  Blah, blah, blah.  There may be some truth to all that but when it comes to sales, the more things change the more they stay the same. However, there is always somebody out there announcing their new “revolutionary theory” which is going to redefine the entire concept of selling. Of course, you gotta buy their book or attend their seminar to learn the secret recipe. Unlike GC, they rarely give away any knowledge because if they did, people would realize right away how full of it they are. During Grant's 35 years in the sales game he's seen these jokers come and go. Unfortunately, the misinformation they dump on people lasts long after they are forgotten.  Here are 5 sales myths that will bring you down and hold you down until you’re out or until you realize they are complete BS.  https://cardonesolutions.com/5-sales-myths/

#SalesTips GO FIRST
GO FIRST: NEVER let the buyer start the negotiations < because they’ll most likely give you a number you can’t do. Never position the buyer to make a low offer, a claim about pricing they’ve seen somewhere else or potentially not be truthful with you. You start. You open. Don’t take the easy way out and chase their number. Instead become fully prepared and a master at handling price objections.
