  1. The 10x Rule by Grant Cardone

The 10x Rule says that you must set targets that are 10x greater than what you believe you can achieve and you must work and take actions 10x greater than what you believe you can do. One biggest mistake that most people make in their lives and which cause them failure and ordinary life is their inability to set higher goals.

When you do not set higher goals for yourself, it is unlikely that you will work hard. When you do not work and take massive actions, you cannot reach your full potential and end up living an ordinary life. To avoid this vicious cycle, set goals 10x high and work 10x more to achieve them. Do not know how? This book is the epitome of how to do it with practical examples and demonstrations.
