Overview

Achieve "Massive Action" results and accomplish your business dreams!

While most people operate with only three degrees of action-no action, 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 know as the 10 X Rule, is that level of action that guarantees companies and individuals realize their goals and dreams.

The 10 X Rule unveils the principle of "Massive Action," allowing you to blast through business clichŽs 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 10 X Rule, remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success.

    Not Satisfied with your Life? Start Thinking Huge!

    Grant Cardone keeps publishing books about altering life to empower us to succeed, and obviously the books (most become best sellers) have a major impact. THE 10X RULE is no exception. One of the reasons Cardone's books are credible lies in the fact that he uses his own life and ladder to success as an example to follow. No created stories of nerds breathing in, expanding the lungs and the mind, and witnessing miraculous change: Cardone shares his own journey and thereby makes his concepts live and blossom.
    Cardone's writing style is conversational with the reader and he makes the reader feel as though the conversation and lessons he shares are between two people. Granted, that style is a 'technique' but it works. At the end of each very readable and brief chapter he provides a one-page exercise to make sure the reader is up to par with the progress. Sound pedantic? Try moving on to the next chapter without taking advantage of these exercises and it is likely that the committed reader will back track and complete these easy but serious assignments.
    Cardone's 10X Rule (Domination Mentality) is in words rather simple: think far beyond current expectations and goals, making them 10 times the size of current concepts, and don't let anything get in your way to reaching greater, substantial heights - in career expectations, in money, in relationships, and in health and longevity. Or as Cardone proposes, 'You must set targets that are 10 times what you think you want and then do 10 times what you think it will take to accomplish those targets. Massive thoughts must be followed by massive actions.' Early on in his book he offers the following: 'the following is the basic series of mistakes people make when setting out to achieve goals: 1. Mistargeting by setting objectives that are too low and don't allow for enough correct motivation. 2. Severely underestimating what it will take in terms of actions, resources, money, and energy to accomplish target. 3. Spending to much time competing and not enough time dominating their sector. and 4. Underestimating the amount of adversity they will need to overcome in order to actually attain their desired goal.'
    The remainder of this book tackles all the possibilities and accompanying techniques for achieving the 10X Rule. The messages are self help oriented and may sound like 'easy for him to say but not for me' dialogue, but the difference in Grant Cardone's principles is that he believes it is a given that all the potential lies within us - and he works on that assumption eventually proving to us that it is true: remember, he is standing beside us all the way giving his own life as an example. Though there are many passages in the book that merit sharing, reading and participating in the 10X Rule makes those pieces of wisdom and advice become gifts to the reader. 'Successful people talk, think, and approach situations, challenges, and problems differently than most - and they definitely think about money differently....Have a 'can do' attitude, Believe that 'I will figure it out', 'Focus on opportunity', 'Love challenges', 'Seek to solve problems', Persist until successful', 'Take risks', 'Be unreasonable,' 'Be dangerous', 'Create wealth', 'Readily take action', 'Always say 'Yes' ', 'Habitually commit', 'Go all the way', 'Focus on 'Now' ', 'Demonstrate courage', 'Be on a mission', 'Commit first - figure out later', 'Be disciplined', 'Reach up in relationships' etc.

    For the Entire Family

    This is really a moment of truth for self and family. My son (15) has realized a new level of confidence that I can only be grateful for. We now have discussions that have transcended our relationship to challenge each other for greater good. Yes he is only 15.

    You Must Read!!!!

    Grant has done it again! This book will make you take massive action. You can not read it and be the same. Grant says that success is your duty, obligation and responsibility. If you are AVERAGE and want to be ABOVE AVERAGE in every part of your life then follow the "THE 10X RULE"

    One of the most Inspirational Books.

    I not only read this but I bought the audio version as well. I can not get enough. Many of the things Grant reminds us in this books is how we control our own destiny. We are the writers of our own endings and beginnings. Valuable words that helped me to recognize some of my short comings and realize my potential !

    Only for the Ambitous!

    I have been an avid fan of Cardone since I invested in his selling seminar. It is simply the best money you will invest. His attack everything attitude will inspire and push the ambitious to their full potential. I have just purchased this book and am sure it will fulfill the need to succeed like everything else he produces.
