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.
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 huge philanthropist, live in a mansion, 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 achieve balance and take it easy. But this has really just given us an excuse to be unexceptional.
If you want real success, you have to be obsessed and know how to harness that power 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
You can be obsessed...or you can be average. It's your choice. Why not start going full-throttle towards your obsession today?

"Money? Yes. Full Life? Not quiiiiite...."
Cardone says he wrote this book because people were telling him they applied the 10X philosophy and, while their financial/business success soared, other parts of their lives were falling apart. "Be Obsessed or Be Average" is supposed to show you how you can have it all.
Uhm, well, you can have a great marriage... as long as you marry someone who doesn't mind that "date night" is actually for four or more people and is used to network. Marry someone who, when asks, "Gee. We're now moving, the car's rolling; where are we moving to?" and responds, "Oh... okay," when you say, "I don't know." And you can have a great family life by spending 15-20 minutes with your children per day (Quality time vs. Quantity time because, "Kids don't need that much time, especially the older they get.")
Okay, so there's that. But the good takeaways I got were about how being obsessed wipes out zero free time/wasted time. About how to be steadfastly persistent. About how to cultivate the positive influences in your life (Listen to people who are more successful than you; negative people are usually those who are fearful and who haven't done much). There were parts that were inspiring, parts that filled me with a positive zeal.
This is a listen where the tent revival preacher shouts the good news to you (and I do mean "shouts"). Just don't expect to find much in the way of balance here. Plus, be prepared to listen about Grant's jet a whoooole lot...
"Inspiring, resonates to the core fibers of my existence and passion."
Astounding book that captures the essential characteristics of the few who have made a dent in this world.
"All in for the long haul!"

"A Must Read for All Entrepreneurs!"

never be the same again.
Grant takes day to day niceties and just crushes them with reality. He flips your mind on it's head, as he makes you stop and realize you're walking down a dangerous path to average. Get obsessed!
"A wake up call for those who aren't living up to their potential"
Cardone's refreshing attitude and way of doing business is something that's unfortunately less and less common amongst businesses in today's America... Fortunately this book in my opinion is his best thus far and will serve as a blueprint for me going forward in entrepreneurship. Thank you Grant, keep striving for greatness, you have inspired me!
