4 Lessons I learned From Going To Grant Cardone’s Ultimate Job Interview

Grant Cardone Whatever it takes

Do you dominate your job interviews? The majority of the job interviews that I have gone to, it has always been easy for me to get the job.

As I received the email that I got accepted to Grant Cardone’s Ultimate Job interview I got excited and thought I would dominate this interview as I have done in the past, but it didn’t go as planned. The majority of job interviews I have gone to have been easy to get hired, but this was really the Ultimate Job Interview.

Normally I am always early to interviews and to any meetings. When I arrived to Grant’s office at 5:00 AM I realized this was going to be tough as there was already a candidate there. As everybody started arriving I started to get nervous because the majority of the candidates had the experience Grant was looking for except me.

Here are 4 lessons that I learned from going to Grant Cardone’s Ultimate Job Interview:

1. Be prepared

It sounds simple, but I didn’t practice enough and didn’t prepare enough to dominate this interview. As I normally always get hired at interviews, I thought this will be no different. Little did I know, I was very unprepared once we jumped into the interview. If I was fully prepared, the interview would’ve gone a completely different way. Always be prepared for any task or challenge that you’re going up against. Get prepared for the big day you want to dominate.

“Never reduce a target. Instead, increase actions. When you start rethinking your targets, making up excuses, and letting yourself off the hook, you are giving up on your dreams!” – Grant Cardone

2. Have self confidence

Normally at every job interview I have presence and confidence, but I started losing it when I saw my competition. My mind started telling me why I wouldn’t win with all these highly skilled individuals in the room. I started doubting myself and when it was my turn to introduce myself I was not confident to have presence and to leave a good impression on Grant.

Remember to always have self confidence in every situation. If you are able to keep your confidence high, you will be able to perform in the most pressured situations.

 

3. Don’t be sorry

As women we always say “I am sorry” for meaningless things that truly we are not sorry for. We have it in our subconscious to say sorry all the time. I’ve heard a lot of women say “sorry” for no apparent reason. When I was watching the show I noticed that I said “Sorry” and I kept asking myself why did I say sorry?

Always continuing to say sorry for things shows a lack of self confidence, like I spoke about in the last point. Be aware of that word and try to remove it. Own yourself and stop apologizing for something that you shouldn’t apologize for.

“Average is a failing plan! Average doesn’t work in any area of life. Anything that you give only average amounts of attention to will start to subside and will eventually cease to exist.” -Grant Cardone

4. Be you

As I first met Grant the, guy that has changed my life and the guy that reminded me to dream and act bigger, for some reason I lost all my confidence and felt intimidated. But like any job interview, you should be you and don’t try to be anyone else as you will be working with this person closely every day.

This is a job interview that I will never forget and every job interview should be like this in order to get out of your comfort zone and start playing at another level. This job interview didn’t allow you to play average like other jobs out there.
