- The 10x Rule, Sell or Be Sold

- Be Obsessed or Be Average
The 10x Rule’ is about goals. The book generally talks about setting goals in life, coming up a plan to achieve them and the common mistakes people make when setting goals. That you should make goals that are 10times bigger and take massive actions that are 10 times bigger. The book also insists that anyone can be successful and warns that if you do not then you will be used to make someone else successful.
Be Obsessed or be Average’ is a book inspired from Cardones’ drug addiction when he was 25. He had an option of giving up on his dreams, but he decided to abandon that path. Instead of obsessing about how miserable he was, he refocused his efforts in being successful in life. That is why he is who he is today: a respected international personality.
The sales sector is not an easy thing. Cardone knows this and in his book Sell to Survive’, he explains to readers that they sell to survive. If you do not then your products and services become useless in the world.

Challenges and failure is part of success. It is not always a smooth ride.
