"All of a sudden, when you get a million dollars, you're like, 'Oh. That's nothing,'" says Cardone, who was deeply in debt before building five businesses and a multi-million-dollar fortune.

When you get a million dollars today, you're going to realize, 'Oh, I've got about four or five years of money.' I know some of you think, 'I can live forever on that.' You're wrong."
