About this item


Book Synopsis

From the millionaire entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author of The 10X Rule comes a bold and contrarian wake-up call for anyone truly ready for success. One of the 7 best motivational books of 2016, according to Inc. Magazine.

Before Grant Cardone built five successful companies (and counting), became a multimillionaire, and wrote bestselling books... he was broke, jobless, and drug-addicted.

Grant had grown up with big dreams, but friends and family told him to be more reasonable and less demanding. If he played by the rules, they said, he could enjoy everyone else's version of middle class success. But when he tried it their way, he hit rock bottom.

Then he tried the opposite approach. He said NO to the haters and naysayers and said YES to his burning, outrageous, animal obsession. He reclaimed his obsession with wanting to be a business rock star, a super salesman, a huge philanthropist. He wanted to live in a mansion and even own an airplane.

Obsession made all of his wildest dreams come true. And it can help you achieve massive success too. As Grant says, we're in the middle of an epidemic of average. The conventional wisdom is to seek balance and take it easy. But that has really just given us an excuse to be unexceptional.

If you want real success, you have to know how to harness your obsession to rocket to the top. This book will give you the inspiration and tools to break out of your cocoon of mediocrity and achieve your craziest dreams. Grant will teach you how to:

- Set crazy goals--and reach them, every single day.
- Feed the beast: when you value money and spend it on the right things, you get more of it.
- Shut down the doubters--and use your haters as fuel.

Whether you're a sales person, small business owner, or 9-to-5 working stiff, your path to happiness runs though your obsessions. It's a simple choice: be obsessed or be average.

This is an incredible book. I wish that I would have been able to read this 10 years ago. I would be in an entirely different league. Looking forward to applying what I've learned from this book.

All your life you are told to be happy with what you have and not ever strive for anything more. This book sheds lots of bad information you have learned in your life away, and replaces that with inspiring information that will help you reach the things you've always wanted.

GRANT CARDONE!!! If those two words don't tell you all you need to know about why you have to buy this book...then let me give you MY story... I am 30 years old, from the age of 21-28 I was addicted to pills, and furthermore had addictive tendencies. Grant Cardone played a HUGE part in saving my life through his books and online material. I was suffering on my worst days and living an average life on my best, I thought or rather KNEW something was wrong with me and that was always, ALWAYS my excuse to play it safe and play it small. I LOVED the pity people gave me and the attention. Until the day where Enough became Enough, you get sick and tired of being sick and tired. This is when Grant Cardone entered my life via Youtube, after watching almost ALL of his content (thousands of videos) and reading his books..I come to find out he had the SAME exact story as I did...and man..if Grant can do it? as he tells us...ANY of us can do it, it gave me HOPE and Belief in myself for the first time. Grant took me from average to Superman. My life is amazing now, I am successful, love my life for the first time in well...30 years, my whole life. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH ANY OF YOU OUT THERE! You just need to learn how to FOCUS your energy into the behaviors you want! IF anything, having addictive behaviors is almost a Superpower! The energy it takes to have an "obsessed, addictive" rush is exactly the energy that it takes to make MILLIONS of dollars and be successful in ALL aspects of your life. This book has just confirmed what I already knew from following Grant for the past couple of years AND it strengthened my belief in him and what he is constantly...CONSTANTLY teaching ALL of us. Please PLEASE get this book, read it, and BELIEVE in it..BELIEVE in yourself! You owe it to you...you owe it to your family..and you owe it to the World...to be the best you that YOU can be...Like Grant, I want to help people on their path, and if that means helping 1 person be the best they can be..I am ALL in. Thank you so much for reading my review, seriously...Thank you!!!! -Matthew Barry *Los Angeles,New York* (Instagram: @Mbarry727) ps- I have never met Grant Cardone, but intend to one day..to Thank him..Thank you Grant and everybody over at Cardone Enterprises!!! Jarrod, Sherri, Steve S., Ryan Tseko, Elena and kids! and everybody else...Thank you!
