Steve and Daymond John Talk About The Importance of “Rise And Grind”
Your success is dependent on your grind
Daymond John is a businessman, investor, author, television personality, and motivational speaker. Perhaps you’ve seen him on Shark Tank as an investor, or read his book The Power of Broke: How Empty Pockets, a Tight Budget, and a Hunger for Success Can Become Your Greatest Competitive Advantage. Whether you’ve read his book, heard him speak, or seen him handle business on Shark Tank, Daymond John has made a name for himself.
During his recent appearance on STEVE, Daymond discussed his “Rise and Grind” theory, which is all about how we use our grind. We all have the same 24 hours in our day, but are we taking full advantage of the time that we’ve been given to be as successful as we can be?
Steve expanded on Daymond’s theory, saying, “I rise to grind.” He believes that God wakes us up for a purpose; there’s something that He’s got for us to take advantage of, something for us to receive. When you rise to grind, you take advantage of the time God gives and get things done—which is as it should be.
And if that sounds like too much work? According to Daymond, “Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.”
For the entrepreneurs out there, Daymond says it’s important to do something you love. Make sure you have mentors, surround yourself with like-minded people, and always give back. If you’re looking for an example of a real entrepreneur, Daymond suggests you take a look at mothers. They’re thrown into the role with no blueprint—and yet, they figure it out.
The bottom line: fear shouldn’t stop someone from starting their dream business or making their dream product, so jump in.
Daymond’s book, Rise and Grind: Outperform, Outwork, and Outhustle Your Way To A More Successful Life, will be released in January 2018.
