The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone: What I learned

Personal development and entrepreneurship books are becoming increasingly popular. It seems like nearly everyone promises to have the key to success for business, or the key to life.

What I’ve found, is that many books say a lot of things that sound good, but they don’t provide realistic steps for achieving goals. As a result, we walk away feeling motivated momentarily, only to later be doubly disappointed by the sensation leaving, as well as the lack of an action plan.

 

What  I love about the 10X Rule by Grant Cardone is that as soon as I read chapter one, I was bubbling with energy to get started on changing my strategy.

 

In this podcast episode, I share the concepts I learned, which have in just a month’s time increase sales for my business as well as viewers for my podcast.

I hope you enjoy!

Becoming More Disciplined | Wonderfully Made Podcast

I’m not sure if I’ve ever really considered myself to be a particularly disciplined, person. I’ve been called that many times over the course of my life, but I’ve never really….resonated with it. To me a disciplined person looks like someone extremely regimented and always on time, and super super organized….And, yes. Maybe it is those things.

But when I really think about what disciplined means to me, it has to do with setting goals, assigning tasks based on those goals, and then completion. So a person cannot merely be called disciplined because they are a dreamer, or even if they are super organized with their planner. It’s discipline when the action is carried out, andcarried out consistently. Generally, people who do this get results.

Graduation Season: Transitioning in Life | Wonderfully Made Podcast

Graduation season is a reminder for me that life has important times of great shift and transition. These times are meant to mature us, but they are difficult and uncomfortable.

I share 6 tips for shifting your mindset and easing your transition.

 

  1. Keep things in perspective. We often fear one move or one choice will make or break our future, and it causes a dangerous paralysis. In reality, we are all who we are, and where we are due to a series of choices. We have the ability to change course, correct, and move in a new direction. So, we must move. Move knowing, that we don’t know all there is to know, till we are motion.
  2. Be okay with making mistakes. The reason we sometimes feel full of promise in college, but terrified when we finish is because we stand to lose something or to make a mistake. What I need you to understand, is mistakes actually raise your potential. That is, if you learn from them. I find a person who has gone out and taken risks in life far more interesting than someone who has only done things they’re familiar with or what was expected of them. What you learn when you fail can sometimes teach you more than any theoretical knowledge you may have.

Surround Yourself with People Who Think Differently | Wonderfully Made Podcast

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when we have done nothing to renew our way of thinking. So often we go to the same places, eat the same foods, and hang with the same people. How can we find new solutions in life and gain a fresh perspective unless we surround ourselves with people who don’t just think the same way we do?

As we face transitions in life or difficult times, it becomes obvious how imperative a fresh mindset is. If we can examine our mindset, the people we spend time with, the places we go, and even the things we eat, we can likely find a relationship between our habits and are lack or abundance of progress.

 

In this episode, I explore some of the ways I keep a fresh perspective.
