The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone

What I like best:  Grant has an in your face, my way or the highway style that he has owned throughout his career - not for the faint of heart, ha. For those of you who don't know Grant's story he is a former car salesman with a history of drug and alcohol abuse who has spent a lifetime on determined action and reform. He has made a career in sales training, motivation, and real estate with an estimate net worth of $400 million, it's fair to say he's come a long way in 30 years. "There is no shortage on success," says Cardone. Just because somebody else is having success in a particular industry, line of work, investment - whatever - that doesn't inhibit you in the least bit from doing the same. 

What I really enjoyed is this idea that if you want extreme success then you can't act like everybody else, in fact you need to be different, you need to take 10X the necessary action as the "normal" person. By doing this you remove common buzz words that follow extreme success like "luck" or "chance." He has an interesting take on action citing that most people only have three degree's of action - no action, retreat, or normal action. The uber successful all operate with a that fourth degree of action - MASSIVE action or 10X action. Get use to criticism though because as Grant contends it always precedes admiration. Fun read for already highly motivated individuals.  

Best quote: "As long as you are alive, you will live to accomplish your own goals and dreams or be used as a resource to accomplish somebody else's."
