In this interview with Patrick Bet-David of Valuetainmentmultimillionaire sales guru Grant Cardone expounds upon entrepreneurship, why people lower their standards and why being a gold digger is a good thing.

The New York Times bestselling author and radio show host of The Cardone Zone also talks about how he looks and feels younger than he did 20 years ago -- because he stopped trying to please everyone and started living his life for himself. 

"I'm 57 years old -- I spent 30 years trying to please people... but the more energy I spent trying to please people, I still couldn't make everybody happy," he says. "I'm like, you know what? I'm done. I'm going to make me happy, I'm going to run my own gig -- and if you don't like my life, then you probably don't like your own, either." 

"When I'm in my game completely and on purpose, I'm most alive," he continues. "I'm in the game of change and expansion, and expansion means life. I'm still in the create cycle."
