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 think you can do. One most significant mistake that most people make in their lives and which causes 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 live 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.
For anyone looking for a book to motivate oneself or to put life in the upper gear, this book is for him.
