When I heard about the 10X Rule, I ran out to buy it.
While the concept is powerful, and I HAVE learned a thing or two from the book, I thought it was terribly redundant.
If you are into Sales Motivation books, there is Nothing ground-breaking here.
The second to last chapter has a list of 32 qualities of sucessful people...and if you pay attention you will see that he repeats himself several times. I was able to consolidate the list down to about 24 items, maybe less.
Dont spend $20.00+ on this book. Just do this:
Understand and accept that no matter HOW bad the economy is, people ARE making money.
Set VERY high goals for yourself...make a powerful and convincing plan of action...and you'll be on the way to being successful. The higher you set the bar, and the harder you push yourself, the further along the track you will get.
The folks who DON'T plan and DON'T try are the ones whining about beinbg losers.
Don't be a loser.
Thisd book can potentially be life changing.
I've created many of my own products and sold millions online. Yet, I
took away some very valuable ideas from this book.
Here are the top 7 things I learned (or was reminded of in a positive way):
1. Instead of blaming the economy for down sales, blame your activity level for being too low
It's easy to get in the mindset that the problem is the market or the economy. He makes a
great case that the problem is the activity of you and/or the employees in your company.
2. Become omnipresent
He has a chapter about omnipresence. This is a GREAT mindset for marketing....become
omnipresent in your market.
3. Seek to dominate your market instead of being competitive.
Being competitive is the wrong target. This is a great point and changes your mindset
4. We consistently underestimate the activity level required to get a result
The problem isn't laziness or anything else. It's simply that we underestimate
the activity level required to launch a new product, make sales or create a
successful marketing funnel.
5. 10x thinking + 10x action
This isn't about thinking only (like Think and Grow Rich) or action only.
Action without the right thought behind it spins your wheels.
6. Set your goal to be 10x greater than you think you need
Expand your thinking. I like this idea. It changes the activities you
plan to reach your goal.
7. Plan to take 10x the actions you think you need
Now, there are a LOT of ideas and nuances I didn't list above.Read more ›
Grant Cardone writes a game changing book, this book is great for entrepreneurs and sales teams. The book talks about talking massive actions, aligning your goals with other goals. It is a highly motivational book and I would recommend anyone reading this to read it like a text book. Reading once through is not good enough. I see a possible book sequel with proper in-depth tools and tips.
The 10X Rule book talks about:
1. The 10X Rule
§ You must set targets that are 10 X what you think it will take to accomplish.
§ Massive thoughts are followed by taking massive actions, operating at 10X levels.
Grant Cardone says that people generally do not take enough action, let alone massive actions. People are generally setting targets that are too low and not exciting, spending time competing and not dominating. 10X rule says do 10 actions and set targets 10 times higher than you first imagine.
2. Why the 10X Rule Is Vital
§ Never reduce a target. Instead, increase actions.
§ Any target attacked with the right actions in the right amounts with persistence is attainable.
Grant talks about the more actions you take, the better chances of you getting "lucky".
3. What is Success?
Success is important. If you quit caring, then you quit winning; quit winning long enough, and you will just plain quit.
4. Success is your duty.
You must constantly demand success as your duty, obligation, and responsibility.
5. There is no shortage of success.
You must rid yourself of the concept of success can be restricted in any way. Operating under this notion will hurt your ability to create success for yourself.Read more ›
Grant Cardone does provide a thought-provoking approach to attaining whatever it is you want in your life... if you want BIG things, then you must take BIG action.
I appreciate Grant Cardone as a sales trainer, motivator and a current-day inspiration for people who want better out of life.
If you are a person who has struggled, or is struggling to make your dreams a reality, pick up this book, read it, highlight and take notes, because you will find guidance that will assist you in making a better life happen... NOW!
