The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone
The 10X Rule (Hardcover)

240 Pages | ISBN: 978-0470627600
While most people operate with only three degrees of action-noaction, retreat, or normal action-if you’re after big goals, you don’t want to settle for the ordinary. To reach the next level, you must understand the coveted 4th degree of action. This 4th degree, also known as the 10X Rule, is that level of action that guarantees companies and individuals realize their goals and dreams.

The 10X Rule unveils the principle of “Massive Action,” allowing you to blast through business clichés and risk-aversion while taking concrete steps to reach your dreams. It also demonstrates why people get stuck in the first three actions and how to move into making the 10X Rule a discipline. Find out exactly where to start, what to do, and how to follow up each action you take with more action to achieve Massive Action results.

· Learn the “Estimation of Effort” calculation to ensure you exceed your targets
· Make the Fourth Degree a way of life and defy mediocrity
· Discover the time management myth
· Get the exact reasons why people fail and others succeed
· Know the exact formula to solve problems

Extreme success is by definition outside the realm of normal action. Instead of behaving like everybody else and settling for average results, take Massive Action with The 10X Rule, remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success.

“Success is no different than any other skill. It can be trained and it can be mastered.” ~ Grant Cardone

Be Obsessed Or Be Average by Grant Cardone
Be Obsessed or Be Average (Hardcover)

240 Pages | ISBN: 978-1101981054
Before Grant Cardone built five successful companies (and counting), became a multimillionaire, and wrote bestselling books… he was broke, jobless, and drug-addicted.

Grant had grown up with big dreams, but friends and family told him to be more reasonable and less demanding. If he played by the rules, they said, he could enjoy everyone else’s version of middle class success. But when he tried it their way, he hit rock bottom.

Then he tried the opposite approach. He said NO to the haters and naysayers and said YES to his burning, outrageous, animal obsession. He reclaimed his obsession with wanting to be a business rock star, a super salesman, a huge philanthropist. He wanted to live in a mansion and even own an airplane.

Obsession made all of his wildest dreams come true. And it can help you achieve massive success too. As Grant says, we’re in the middle of an epidemic of average. The conventional wisdom is to seek balance and take it easy. But that has really just given us an excuse to be unexceptional.

If you want real success, you have to know how to harness your obsession to rocket to the top. This book will give you the inspiration and tools to break out of your cocoon of mediocrity and achieve your craziest dreams. Grant will teach you how to:

· Set crazy goals—and reach them, every single day.
· Feed the beast: when you value money and spend it on the right things, you get more of it.
· Shut down the doubters—and use your haters as fuel.

Whether you’re a sales person, small business owner, or 9-to-5 working stiff, your path to happiness runs though your obsessions. It’s a simple choice: be obsessed or be average.

“Dreams don’t happen on couches.” ~ Grant Cardone

Sell Or Be Sold by Grant Cardone
Sell or Be Sold (Hardcover)

200 Pages | ISBN: 978-1608322565
Whether it’s selling your company’s product in the boardroom or selling yourself on eating healthy, everything in life can and should be treated as a sale. And as sales expert Grant Cardone explains, knowing the principles of selling is a prerequisite for success of any kind.

In Sell or Be Sold, Cardone breaks down the techniques and approaches necessary to master the art of selling in any avenue. You will learn how to handle rejection, turn around negative situations, shorten sales cycles, and guarantee yourself greatness. Cardone will also teach you the success essentials of
Selling in a bad economy

· Overcoming call reluctance
· Filling your pipeline with new business
· Staying positive, despite rejection

With the experience of a seasoned sales vet at the helm, Sell or Be Sold will change the way you perceive the sale and life.

“Your greatness is limited only by the investments you make in yourself.” ~ Grant Cardone

3 Earl Nightingale Books Worth Reading

Earl Nightingale was an American radio personality, writer, respected speaker, and author in the subjects of motivation and success. Here are 3 of Earl Nightingale’s books worth reading.

Earl Nightingale (March 12, 1921 – March 28, 1989) was an American radio personality, writer, respected speaker and author, dealing mostly on the subjects of human character development, motivation, excellence and meaningful existence; so named as the “Dean of Personal Development.” He was the voice in the early 1950s of Sky King, the hero of a radio adventure series, and was a WGN radio show host from 1950 to 1956. Nightingale was the author of The Strangest Secret, which economist Terry Savage has called “…One of the great motivational books of all time”. …Read More
The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale
The Strangest Secret (Paperback)

44 Pages | ISBN: 978-1603865579
I’d like to tell you about the strangest secret in the world… Live this new way, and the floodgates of abundance will open and pour over you more riches than you may have dreamed existed.

Money? Yes, lots of it. But what’s more important, you’ll have peace. You’ll be in that wonderful minority who lead calm, cheerful, successful lives. Start today. You have nothing to lose, but you have a life to win.

These ideas are not new they have been around for years maybe even centuries.

Maybe it was brought on because of the recent recession, or the economic and demographics of America or maybe its and underlying movement permeating the world.

People are looking for answers science and religion just haven’t been able to answer adequately.

Questions such as why do some people have such fabulous wealth and others barely get by. Is there some outside force to blame? The Government, Wall Street, The 1%….who knows.

“All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.” ~ Earl Nightingale

The Essence of Success by Earl Nightingale
The Essence of Success (Paperback)

168 Pages | ISBN: 978-9562915731
Discover the secrets to a great life as Earl Nightingale expounds upon the key concepts of “attitude”, “enthusiasm”, “service”, and “gratitude.” Learn the great law of “rewards equal contributions”, and how the amount of service you give determines your success in life. Successful people have one thing in common: A winning attitude. How the world treats us is a reflection of our attitude. If we put our minds and attitudes to work, we tend to get from life what we expect from it. Enthusiasm has been called “the God within”, and enthusiastic people are the happiest and most interesting people in the world. Enthusiastic people can be spotted in a crowd on account of their energy, direction, intentionality and delight. Conversely, the dull-eyed plodders live life defensively, reacting to events rather than causing them.

All rewards in life, tangible and non-tangible, come from making the best use of what we are in the SERVICE of others, and only to the extent that we serve others do we know the joy of living. There is a law operating at all times, whether we know and believe it or not: the Law of Rewards Equal Contributions. Our rewards in life will always be in direct proportion to our contribution. This is the law of all economics and of our well being. Finally, expressing gratitude activates the Law of Increase, for when we are grateful and use what we are good at in the service of others, we attract all we desire.

“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.” ~ Earl Nightingale

Failing Forward by John Maxwell
Failing Forward (Paperback)

226 Pages | ISBN: 978-0785288572
Are some people born to achieve anything they want while others struggle? Call them lucky, blessed, or possessors of the Midas touch. What is the real reason for their success? Is it family background, wealth, greater opportunities, high morals, an easy childhood?

New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell has the answer: The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.

Most people are never prepared to deal with failure. Maxwell says that if you are like him, coming out of school, you feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But Maxwell has learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.

“I want to help you learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway,” says Maxwell. “Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with them. Stop failing backward and start failing forward!”

“A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.” ~ John Maxwell

Here are 10 bits of wisdom left by Jim Rohn that can help us on our path to success.

You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.

Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.

Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.

Success is steady progress toward one’s personal goals.

3 Richard Branson Books You Should Read

Richard Branson is an English business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. Here are 3 of Richard Branson’s books you need to read at least once in your lifetime.

Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson is an English business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. He is best known as the founder of Virgin Group, which comprises more than 400 companies.

Virgin is one of the world’s most irresistible brands and has expanded into many diverse sectors from travel to telecommunications, health to banking and music to leisure. There are now more than 100 Virgin companies worldwide, employing approximately 60,000 people in over 50 countries. ..Read More

Richard Branson The Virgin Way
The Virgin Way (Paperback)

400 Pages | ISBN: 978-1591847984
While building the Virgin Group over the course of forty years, Richard Branson has never shied away from tackling seemingly outlandish challenges that others (including his own colleagues on many occasions) considered sheer lunacy. He has taken on giants like British Airways and won, and monsters like Coca-Cola and lost.

Now Branson gives an inside look at his strikingly different, swashbuckling style of leadership. Learn how fun, family, passion, and the dying art of listening are key components to what his extended family of employees around the world has always dubbed (with a wink) “the Virgin Way.”

This unique perspective comes from a man who dropped out of school at sixteen, suffers from dyslexia, and has never worked for anyone but himself. He may be famous for thinking outside the box—an expression he despises—but Branson asserts that “you’ll never have to think outside the box if you refuse to let anyone build one around you.”

Richard Branson Like a Virgin
Like a Virgin (Paperback)

352 Pages | ISBN: 978-1591845683
It’s business school, the Branson way.

Whether you’re interested in starting your own business, improving your leadership skills, or simply looking for inspiration from one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time, Richard Branson has the answers.

Like a Virgin brings together some of his best advice, distilling the experiences and insights that have made him one of the world’s most recognized and respected business leaders.

In his trademark thoughtful and encouraging voice, Branson shares his knowledge like a close friend. He’ll teach you how to be more innovative, how to lead by listening, how to enjoy your work, and much more.

In hindsight, Branson is thankful he never went to business school. Had he conformed to the conventional dos and don’ts of starting a business, would there have been a Virgin Records? A Virgin Atlantic? So many of Branson’s achievements are due to his unyielding deter­mination to break the rules and rewrite them himself. Here’s how he does it.

Richard Branson Losing My Virginity
Losing My Virginity (Paperback)

416 Pages | ISBN: 978-0812932294
“Oh, screw it, let’s do it.”

That’s the philosophy that has allowed Richard Branson, in slightly more than twenty-five years, to spawn so many successful ventures. From the airline business (Virgin Atlantic Airways), to music (Virgin Records and V2), to cola (Virgin Cola), to retail (Virgin Megastores), and nearly a hundred others, ranging from financial services to bridal wear, Branson has a track record second to none.

Losing My Virginity is the unusual, frequently outrageous autobiography of one of the great business geniuses of our time. When Richard Branson started his first business, he and his friends decided that “since we’re complete virgins at business, let’s call it just that: Virgin.” Since then, Branson has written his own “rules” for success, creating a group of companies with a global presence, but no central headquarters, no management hierarchy, and minimal bureaucracy.
