There’s a harsh reality many people don’t dare accept; to get rich, you’ve got to go big.
I highly recommend following the famous salesman Grant Cardone, and credit where credit is due, I’m preaching this due to what I’ve learned from him. The reality of the situation is that people expect to become rich, doing what the masses are doing. Naturally, this is not the case, or else the masses would be rich, right? Here’s what they’re doing wrong; not taking big enough action.
Here’s an example comparing two people:
Bill is a 24 year old financial freedom-obsessed entrepreneur, he loves real estate and decided to raise money from family, friends, and connections to save enough for a down payment on an 8-unit apartment building, he is paying the investors and receiving about $400 every month, and delegates the managing to a property manager. He is successful.
John is a 24 year old financial freedom-obsessed business graduate, he loves real estate and decided that he would save enough money working his regular 9-to-5 job every week to purchase a decent condo as a rental. John was taught that it’s important to start small, he rents out the condo, manages it actively and cashflows a whopping $100.
Bill spends less time managing and earns more, John decided to start small, works more, and makes less money. The greatest argument to be brought here is the risk factor, naturally, going big does require greater degrees of risk.
The beauty of it all is that if you know how to calculate your numbers, and they check out. The deal works, calculated risks are calculated risks, whether you’re dealing with $1,000 or $1,000,000.
