In the year 2012 I have made the goal to read more. My goal is to push myself to expand my knowledge through books. I plan to devour a book a week and then review what I have learned here in this group.
I plan to read a mix of Motivational, Biographies, and How to .
I would like to invite all to join me read a book, post a review.

Welcome to the book of the week review, this week I read Grant Cardone’s latest book “The 10X Rule”This book is awesome! I mean Grant really lets you have it; he lays it out there in a way that makes you feel like you just got reamed by your boss for being a slacker! I needed that.I read this book cover to cover and then again. Then I ordered the audio disc set. The one key theme throughout the book is to take action, massive action! I have been replaying this theme in my head since I first read it, the only one that can insure my success is me, if I take no action I get exactly that in return, NO ACTION! If you want good things to happen you have to be out there making them happen, by taking massive action every minute of every day. No Excuses, you owe it to yourself, your family and your customersGrant addresses fear in a straight no BS way that basically says “Quit being a little bitch” This is pure motivation and those five words are worth the price of the book!!! If you haven’t read it, take action and order it. Just a couple of thoughts I have on the book, I invite others to comment on what you took away from it, Continue
I have read this book several times , I also own the classic tape cassette series that I purchased in the early nineties, still need to burn those to a cd! LOL, but anyway if you haven’t heard of Earl Nightingales get on Amazon and buy it all!!!This guy was ing things in 1950’s that are still current today, his insight to achieving the success you truly want and desire are on the money!To think of the foresight he had in a time where America was at its best, fresh out of a depression , war, and before the any of the craziness started(hippies, drugs ,disco, and computers ), but he was still sending the message that we can all do more, we can achieve greatness, we live in the greatest land of all the land of opportunity!I imagine Earl would be disgusted by the occupy movement, I think his advice to these people would be to look at your situation, find something you are good at and start to create your own opportunities!!! Don’t wait for a hand out and criticize the successful! Earl points out that in America opportunities are equal, they don’t discriminate, they aren’t reserved for any certain class or race, they simple require you to take action and then own the opportunity and make it what you envision it to be.The strangest secret has been called many things but the truth is it’s not a secret and the only thing that makes it strange is that more people don’t apply it to their lives. Imagine what a world of hurt we would be in if the mindset of our current population was transported in time back to the settlers days, and it was on them to establish the work ethic and structure that our country was built on , Would we survive? I don’t think so I think we would not have the innovation that has propelled us to greatness.I think of the power books like this have to form our thoughts, and I wonder why they aren’t on the required curriculum of our schools?
