Off the Shelf: The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone

The 10x Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure by Grant Cardone

Pages: 256

While this is more business-oriented than my normal self-help picks, this book can apply to life as well as work. Mr. Cardone presents the 10X rule, which basically states that in order to be a success, you must invest 10x more effort than the average person does. While this seems like a simple concept, as you read the book and realize how few of us really go that extra step (or ten) it changes the way you view all your goals, whether career or personal. 

The chapter on fear was an eye-opener for me. As a somewhat over-cautious person, I realized that more of my decisions are based on avoiding a negative outcome than on pursuing a positive one. The author brilliantly explains why this mindset will hinder and even prevent you from reaching your true potential. The world-changers don’t play it safe, they go all in! Even though it is marketed as a business book (it's particularly geared for people working in sales), the principles in this book can be applied in many areas of life.

Have you read this book? If so, did you apply to 10x Rule in your life or business? Feel free to leave a comment!

Off the Shelf: Atomic Habits by James Clear

Title: Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones

Author: James Clear

Pages: 307

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

I thought I'd start this year of blogging off with a self-help book, and I hit the jackpot with this one. Using psychology hacks to explain why good habits are so hard to stick with and why bad habits are so hard to break, James Clear goes on to give numerous examples of ways we can outwit our nature and stick to our habits this time! I loved this book so much, I also bought the audiobook to listen to on my way back and forth to work. 

I can't wait to put the tactics discussed in this book to use, and have already got my habit tracker journal ready to go! Has anyone else read and tried the exercises? Leave a comment and let me know how it worked out for you.
