Reflections on The 10X Rule and The 5-Second Rule – Both Bestsellers

I read Grant Cardone’s book The 10x Rule, because I thought it might be similar to my newest book, The MISOGI Method. And while Cardone promotes going for 10X the goals you set out for yourself, his book relates it to everything you do. I think this is admirable and inspirational, but I’m not sure I can 10X everything in my life, all at once. And I’m not sure I equate it with success or failure. Life is not black and white. It always comes at us in shades.

I prefer to unplug and listen to the inner me to find the one big reach that can change my life for the better. And then go through the MISOGI Method process of pursuing that reach. The cool part is, that even if you don’t fully achieve your MISOGI, you haven’t failed.

Step one is to unplug and reflect. Our truest desires often develop when we played, unsupervised, as a child. When we go back and tap into that freedom, we often find what we really love most, and too often have set aside due to parental or societal expectations, money or self-imposed pressures. It requires reflection and intuition.

Which brings me to The 5-Second Rule by Mel Robbins. When I was chosen from a long list of applicants to deliver my TEDx talk, the organizers told me I reminded them of Mel Robbins. Well, she’s much more animated on stage than I am, but I loved the compliment.

Mel’s main message is to make big decisions in 5-seconds or you won’t make them. She talks about gut feelings. Cardone says do 10x as much. One follows instinct or intuition, and the other big leaps.

My book, The MISOGI Method wants you to find that One. Big. Thing. that you can go for to transform your life for the better. It won’t happen in 5-seconds and it won’t require you to 10X everything you do. But once you’ve found your MISOGI, the results will last much longer than 5 seconds and you will probably end up doing 1000x what you thought you could.

You’ll realize the possible in your life….and then you’ll probably want to do another one.

I know you’ll enjoy The 10x Rule by Grant Cardone, and The 5-Second Rule by Mel Robbins, and if you’re anything like me and love Self-Help, Transformational and Motivational roadmaps, then consider grabbing my latest book The MISOGI Method, you won’t be sorry.
