Hi, before I get into reviewing this champions book, let’s talk about Grant Cardone for a moment shall we?
Mr. Cardone is a boss to start with. He has been the top salesperson in the world for many years.
That by itself is incredible. I have always admired professional salespeople. However the elites of the sales world are very impressive indeed.
I have watched a few videos of this guy, and he has a strong personality. He can seem “cocky” for sure.
One video I watched, he talked about how he was a ladies man in highschool, and was also popular.
We have covered thus far that this dude was a popular ladies man in highschool, and is the best salesperson in the world
So he is a big money maker, he is a winner, and experienced the “winners lifestyle” for many years, so for him it is part of his every day life. (Success and winning)
That is pretty cool for sure.
OK, lets check out this champions book.

About the Book
OK, so we discussed that Grant is a super winner, and remember that I warned you are going to see that in this book.
The basic premise of this book is:
1. Your goals should be 10 times bigger then what you think you can achieve.
2. Your actions should be 10 times bigger then what you believe is required to achieve them.
Grant conveys that people set their goals too small, thus taking weak actions, getting weak results. He stresses that the only way to be winning in your life is to be taking massive action.
Grant Cardone as we discussed, has a winners mentality, so this is BIG thinking and the fact that he comes from the sales background, he is very battle hardened and has many victories under his belt.
Remember, this guy has been winning since highschool. I am sure he has had his share of failures and hard times, undoubtedly.
Grant talks about how people set there goals too low, and how this is such a big mistake. He stresses that people underestimate how much action and investment will be required to achieve their goals.
According to this champion, people set goals not realizing the difficulty of the adversities they will have to overcome.
If that is the case, people should set goals that are even 10 times higher. Why not go for 100 times higher while we are at it?
Maybe I will write a book called Jake’s Super Success 1000X formula.
Stop setting your goals so weak at 10X and go for 1000X instead.
Just go take massive action and think positive, and give me 25 dollars for that advice because I am a Law of attraction Guru.
Grant the legend says that if you do not chase after your dreams, then somebody will hire you to create their dreams for them.
Grant tells people to stop minimizing the importance of success, as people do not believe it is that important. However Mr Cardone says that is the most important thing ever.
He Says That Failure Is Not An Option.
He stresses that no successful person is a victim, and to drop that attitude as it is preventing your success.
Do not blame or complain about your past because that is what unsuccessful people do. All the time.
He stresses that people think too “average”. We are so caught up in trying to fit in and be normal, that we try to be more average.
“Average” is the new broke.
However, if you want to be successful, happy, and healthy, you should stop trying to be normal.
Grant says, in his hot selling book, that people set their goals way to small in the beginning, This leads to small actions and thus small results.
In order to get BIG results, you gotta set BIG goals, according to this legend.
He stresses that the top performers do not try to copy or compete, but rather they dominate their field. Well that is wonderful, I am sure explains how to do that in this book.
Grant explains the importance of being original and not trying to adapt to the norms of the industry but instead look for something only you can offer, that will make you stand out.
I like that he says you need to be obsessive about your success. I have always had an “obsessive” personality, and I have always felt bad about it. As such I have channeled my obsessive nature towards my personal success.
Normal people would think this is strange. So this book may not be for normal people.
He says, look for the thing in your life that would cause you to become obsessed about it. What goal in your life gives you enough desire to become obsessed about it?
OK, I have probably summarized this book well enough that you may not need to go buy it now. If you want you can give me some free money for this review and I would be fine with that. Thank you for thinking of me in that regard.

I really wanted to dislike this book. Grant Cardone is so unforgiving of any excuses and has a very ´aggressive´ attitude to winning and sales. As a woman and as a mother I find it too extreme … except … that he is absolutely right.
It made me uncomfortable because it highlighted how many excuses I make. Even if I don´t want to take it to his level, he is right in demanding more, in telling us to aim higher, aim bigger.
He reminds me of an army officer at boot camp screaming at you to get off your arse and do more, be the best you can be. You would curse them during training, but when it is over, appreciate how they helped get the best out of you.
