The 10X Rule – Grant Cardone – Review
I read all the time… no that’s a lie. I tend to listen to audio books and podcasts all the time. It’s a more efficient way of cramming in personal development into my busy day. Plus it makes the washing up more interesting on an evening!
There’s plenty of content, which I consume that I love at the time! Two weeks later though… couldn’t tell you what it was about.
Not the case with Grant Cardone’s audiobook – The 10X rule.
What a book! So, thought I’d give you my
two pence on it… basically you should read it… right now!
A friend at our local BNI business referrals group recommended it to me, and it certainly did not disappoint.
What stands out straight away is that the author reads his own audiobook. Grant makes the audiobook come alive in a way that so often the delivery of other ebooks does not. His passion for his work and his life belts of the page and it’s hard not to get carried along in the enthusiasm.
Grants sets the scene well and his structure is easy to track and relate to – very little repetition on tertiary themes.
So, who is this book for? Those who want more out of their life and their work, but aren’t quite hitting their goals.
The problem – they’re not thinking big enough. The solution – think bigger, act bigger. Sounds simple and it is.
I’m not going to try and unpack Grant’s mindset theory, he does that more than adequately in his brilliant audiobook.
What I will say is that every single chapter was relevant to my business and had really great actionable insights and suggestions for changes in action and mindset.
Two key take-homes for me were:
- ‘Work-life balance’ is not a balanced way to look at life. This construct splits the two and leaves work as the second class citizen in the life we live… Surely the goal should be to maximise your life – full-stop. When did we stop seeing work as life-giving?
- Massive goals create massive motivation, which create massive action. If there is a problem in the chain, work back.
So the other point of view… the critics will probably say that Grant Cardone’s approach to hitting your goals is theoretical, too anecdotal, too American… Probably they all have a point, and would be worth listening to if they have value to contribute to the discussion around mindset, success and mbusiness.
But, ever noticed how all the critics and pundits that make us laugh at their savage take downs of high-profile self-help gurus never really seems to make that much money? How many of these critics are out their helping other people achieve their dreams like Grant Cardone, Tony Robbins, Gary Vee?
For all that they are right, what are they doing to help move your business forwards with their content?
Stuck in a rut? Doing well, but want to do better? Wish you were smashing it, instead of sculling by?
Give 10X a listen – it won’t disappoint!
