9 to 5 or 95?
I’ve been called the Benjamin Button of business. I just keep getting younger and younger the older I get. What is the secret? I’m in the game—I’m on purpose. I’m youngest when I’m expanding. I like feeling good, feeling excited and feeling young. I want to be in the upward cycle of creation. I just turned 58 years old but I’m building something every day, not sitting back.
Most people work 9 to 5. I work 95 hours (per week). If you ever want to be a millionaire, you need to stop doing the 9 to 5 and start doing 95. In most states your speeding if you go above 65 to 75 but I say just take it all the way up to 95. The closer you get to 100 the more benjamins you will make. Be the Benjamin Button in your space and start making more Benjamins.
If you gave me 5 billion dollars, I’d still be grinding tomorrow. Be on the field. That’s where you get the win. I want that.
My life is not in the stands. My life is not as a spectator. My life is being a player on the field.
Those who work only 9 to 5 have given up on their dreams and are mostly spectators.
Start paying attention to who you are listening to. There is no regulation on experts. People out there say they are social media experts and have only 2,000 Facebook fans. You need to look a little deeper. What’s their money like? What’s their bank account?
As a self-made millionaire I am telling you that if you want massive success in life you will have to grind. Most experts are about contraction. I’m about expansion.
Suzie Orman says: Don’t spend the money.
Dave Ramsey says: Don’t borrow the money.
I say: Learn to create the money.
Who will you follow? There are guys who make a lot of money but don’t have a lot of investments. There are other guys who have a lot of investments but don’t make a lot of money. Because I am the tortoise AND the hare, I have both. I take all my income, and I push it aside. I don’t diversify. Put all the eggs in one basket, and make sure that the basket doesn’t fall. I’m broke all the time—even when I’m flying 10X Airlines. I have to create each month to pay my bills.
If someone doesn’t like me, it says more about them than it does about me. If you are patient, you’ll get crumbs. I’m in a hurry. I’m not just about being rich,I’m about being wealthy. Rich means you have money—wealth is affluence in every area: health, family, kids, wife.
You need to get your income up to $125K to get your head above water in today’s world. People are trying to do the impossible, they are trying to save what they make. You can’t save your way to being a millionaire by making $60K. You can, but you will be 90 years old. Who wants that?
There’s no shortage of money. Every dollar on this plant has been manufactured. There is a shortage of people doing 95 hours each week. If you are doing 9 to 5 and want to start making some changes, get on Cardone University. I will train you so that you can not only get your head above water, but so that you can get wealth. There ain’t nothing wrong with that.
Get younger every day,
