Cheers Keith. I already liked you. And I like beer as much as martinis.:-)

@Tom & Jerry: I like to get a lot of Type A personalities working for me so that I can go home and enjoy my family. Then, after my family goes to sleep, I still work my @ss off 3-4 hours more! :)

Forget the bandaids, Tom gave me a martini, twice, on here. Here's a beer for both of you!

@Jerry Thank you so much for offering your view. You may be right about getting hired over me. Most employers (maybe even me) want to think you are more interested in them than anyone else (including your wife and family). It's so 20th century, don't you think? I said nothing about work produced and the quality of that work.

By the way Jerry, I hope you live to your 60s or 70s to enjoy the fruits of your labor. As far as working your @ss off... do you think any of us goes home without his job? Most of us live their job and think about it day and night. Some people are actually more creative and productive when they are away from the office and constant interruptions for trivial and meaningless things.

"Now in no way am I trying to tell you how to live your life. That's the beauty of where we live, we each have the ability to live our lives as we want. So I have no problem with the way you live your life, but when you start preaching to others how they should mimic your life style choice, well that's when I say you've crossed the line."

Get it?

BTW, Grant gave me a band-aid. What you didn't know, becuase I am not so obvious, is that I gave him one back. My job is not to put others down or make fun of them. It is to build people up and make more of them. I do that in my personal and professional life.

@Tom, If I wanted to live that life style I'd have me a double wide in the trailer park and I'd live a meager life. Then I could volunteer at the soup kitchen all I wanted. But that's not for me, I enjoy the nicer things in life and the only way to get there is by working my @ss off. This way when I am in my 60's I won't need to work anymore and I can enjoy the fruits of my labor. People get ahead by working harder not easier. That's a major problem with our country right now, people expect handouts when they should be providing for themselves.

If you and I went on an interview for a sales position, and we both expressed our views, I guarantee you I would get the job over you 99% of the time.

Now in no way am I trying to tell you how to live your life. That's the beauty of where we live, we each have the ability to live our lives as we want. So I have no problem with the way you live your life, but when you start preaching to others how they should mimic your life style choice, well that's when I say you've crossed the line.

Now the funniest thing I've seen all week was when I logged on to your profile to learn more about you and I noticed that Grant sent you a "Band Aid." That's some funny stuff right there.

I want to say something to all you proud "Type A" personalities out there. "Get a life!" I truly feel sorry for you. I am almost 60 years old. I love my company. I do my best for my company (and I do well). But NOTHING is more important than my family. It is not the hours you put in for your company that makes you valuable. It is the quality of time. Don't be so proud of 12-16 hour days. It means you are not able to help your company without inhuman efforts. It means you are difficient. You are lacking in ability. When I see your pride, I feel sick. You think that by being so devoted to your employer, you are providing for your loved ones (or yourself). Your blindness tops your own humanity, blinds you to other's humanity and you think your sales pitch is erfective. But real human beings appreciate other real human beings .... not your sales pitch. You are transparent. Most people avoid you, online or otherwise. You don't even notice in your blindness. Grow up and become human. Others will appreciate it. This is the age of the consumer. Not the "sales"man.

This video is fantastic!

I love the smell of "SMACKDOWNS" in the morning. I don't even sell cars and this video makes me want to go outside, snatch somebody up by the scruff of the neck, and put them in a vehicle - ANY vehicle - I don't care if somebody already owns it. "Sir, did you know the car you're driving was reported stolen this morning?" "Uh, NO, officer. This guy just sold it to me yesterday. I was walking my dog and the next thing you know I'm buying this car that was parked at McDonalds. He kept saying something about some guy named Grant Cardone showing him the light." “Blind man, I don't know how you found your way onto this lot, but you aren't leaving without a car!” ---The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

Thank you, Ralph. That meant a lot to me.

"Go Patton!!!!" :) I look forward to what Grant has to show and teach us all.

@Keith - I see your point, and I do agree that Friday Morning, or Saturday Morning meetings should be about pumping up the troops. A "Come to Jesus" meeting is more of a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday deal, and whether your hero is George Patton, Vince Lombardi, Jesus Christ, Muhammed, Budha or whoever, the messaging around "Do the right thing" regardless of circumstances or excuses is pretty universal... And, THAT is why i think I like this video so much. It's all about accepting responsibility without citing excuses. This concept is something I used to see when I first started selling cars and we still had a lot of WW !! and Korean War vets in the car busiuness. Why did you see a top salesman out back on the wash rack with a chamois cloth getting a car ready for delivery while the customer was in finance? We had lot attendants to do that! The answer I would get would be "Because if i don't do it, the customer will be waiting on the car when they get out of finance, and that's no way to treat someone who just made the second largest purchase in their life..." THAT reflected the no-excuses, get the job done approach that I liked so much about the car business... Grant's video reminds me of that spirit.
