A friend and colleague of mine has recently turned me on to yet another personal development trainer, Florida real estate mogul Grant Cardone.
While listening to an audio book of his today, Sell or Be Sold, he made this provocative statement:
“I’d rather be fully committed to the wrong thing than be half committed to the right thing.”
I have to admit, his statement rattled me. Now, I’ve listened to enough of his material to know he’s definitely not arguing for getting behind a losing cause. “Choose well” is his advice.
But his unnerving statement highlights an important truth, one we’ve discussed here on The Upside: “Wherever you are, be all there.”
There is energy in full, unbridled passion for what is important to us. When we decide “This is it—I’m getting behind this effort, this value, this goal, taking no prisoners, come hell or high water,” stuff begins to unlock, paths open, your subconscious mind begins serving you and the target you’ve set.
Life is far too short to live in half-hearted fashion.
What are your goals and are they compelling enough to motivate you to burn your bridges and trash your excuses to make them a reality?
