I got the audio book and at the beginning it caused stress and anxiety since it made me feel that I was doing everything wrong and falling very far behind. After our last 1:1 that you explained me the rationale behind reading it at the beginning of the program I started assimilating it in a totally different way. I am just half way, but Chapter 7 has changed even the way I exercise and eat.
Things that up to know I’ve learned:
– The way you see success is as important as the way you approach it
– No game in life is truly enjoyable without first accepting control over your understanding of the game, how to play the game and the outcomes of the game
– Victims will never be secure since they elected to turn responsibility to others and never elect to know for themselves of what they can do

A bit confused, 1st week assignment says “get the audiobook” going forward i stopped at “get the kindle and then the audio book” I read there is a book summary and also that the the listening length is 7+ hours instead of the 1.5 hour stated at the session #1.

COMMENT OF THE DAY – Half way through the 10X Rule audio book – a lot of information but some great talking points thus far.
ONE THING I LEARNED – It is our duty, responsibility and obligation to demand successful in our life, being mediocre is simply, unacceptable!

10X Rule Audio Book – Things I learned from the Book
1. Chapter 1 – What is the 10X Rule?
Any DESIRABLE TARGET OR GOAL will always suggest something you have yet to accomplish. As long as you are alive and breathing, you will either live to accomplish your dreams and desires or you will be used as a resource to help another accomplish theirs.
2. Chapter 7 – 4 Degrees of Action
There are 4 DEGREES OF ACTION (1) is to do nothing (2) to retreat or contract (3) to take average levels of action or lastly (4) taking massive action. Massive action is allowing yourself to get out of your comfort zone which will create new problems/challenges. This is the Degree of Action you want to remain in at all times and this will ensure you succeed at the highest level possible.
3. Chapter 20 – Omnipresence
Be everywhere at all times and be PRESENT and become a household name. Be INVOLVED within your community and become the Subject Matter Expert (SME) by being connected to those around you and everything that ties you, to the people, to the community and to the product and service you are offering the public…
Five things that I took away from 10x:
1) Set target goals 10 times what I think I want and then do 10 times what I think it will take to accomplish those targets. Set Massive Goals and take Massive ACTION!!!
2) Success is important. Success is my duty, obligation, and responsibility. Success is not an option. It must be treated as a must-have obligation, a do-or-die mission, gotta-have-it mentality. The only way to live up to my full potential is to have this mentality towards Success, Everyday!
Success doesn’t happen to me; it happens because of me and because of the actions I take.
3) No Excuses. Take 100% responsibility for everything that happens in your life, whether good, bad, or nothing at all. I must assume control for everything that happens to me, even for those things that I appear to have no control over. Even if I am in control or not, I must still elect to claim responsibility and control so that I can do something to improve my situation going forward.
4) FEAR (False Events Appearing Real). Rather than seeing fear as a sign to run, it must become my indicator to Go!! Handle fear by omitting time from the equation– since time is what drives fear. The more time I devote to the object of my apprehension, the stronger it becomes. So starve the fear of its favorite food by removing time from its menu.
5) Omnipresence!!! Being everywhere – in all places, at all times. I want people to see me so often that they think of me constantly and instantaneously identify my face or name or logo with not just the offering I represent but even the offering made by those similar to me. I must first make a vow to have my brand, idea, concept, company, product, or service make a footprint on the planet. To do so I must get involved with my community, school system, neighborhood, and local politics. I must attend and be seen at events, write in the local paper, and get connected to the players in my community. Once involved I must do everything possible to stay active, have people see me, read me, hear me, and think about me. Say yes to every opportunity to get my word out. Write about it, talk about it, give lectures on what I do, and even bark on the street corners if I have to. I must Commit to OMNIPRESENCE!!!
rite Three things you have learned from 10X Book
1) Magnify your Goals, and Exponentially increase your Actions
2) If you do not work on Your Goals and Dreams, then you will be working on someone else’s Goals and Dreams
3) SUCCESS……is for me a Higher Calling! It’s my duty, and my obligation!

1) 10X is a conduit for persistence, which is required to penetrate and successfully navigate this Maze called life, for unbelievable results and success.
It reminded me of some of the practices I utilized to get to where I am today as a Commercial Pilot.
It required obsession to achieve my otherwise impossible dream.
One of my friends for years mockingly called me “The Ultimate Optimist”.
That all came to an end on October 25th 1999 when this “Ultimate Optimist” achieved his dream by getting hired by his airline of choice, American Airlines.
(2) General Colon Powell, who led the first invasion of Iraq, firmly believed that overwhelming power should always be used when fighting the enemy.
10X replicates this action.
My desire for 10X results will therefore require domination, another intimidating word. It is the only way to separate ones-self from the pack.
(3) Another Army General from the first Gulf war, Norman Schwarzkopf, surprised the enemy by quickly encircling the enemy followed by an unpredicted, rapid deployment.
The fight was essentially over before it had begun.
Using this analogy, one must always be forward reaching & forward thinking.

1. Assume control on everything, be responsible and accountable for every action
2. Dont compete, Dominate
3. Average is a failing formula, unemployment is getting higher, competition is becoming more fierce, average is what made circuit city fail and other huge companies that went bankrupt in the recession.
4. Have 10x goals, they fail to set goals that are high enough, if you start small, you will always go with small. Who gets satisfaction going small?
5. Break out of the middle class mentality, this group is most hurt by members and actions, this group is the most trapped, most manipulated.

great advice learned from this book;
1- SUCCESS is my obligation and my responsibiltiy and is the outcome of my habits and actions!
2- Face FEAR by doing whatever it is that makes me fearful anyway – take pressure off by forgetting about time frame rules.
3- MAKE the commitment to be present in my community at charity events, local events, write in local newspapers or online info sources and social media – ATTEND AND CONNECT be active and present!
Thank you Orlando

Great Audio book! I really enjoyed!
3 things that I’ve learned:
We should never underestimate our efforts to achieve success.
Success is our duty not optional.
Always dominate the market.
Orlando, I have a question:
Don’t you think if we say yes for every opportunity we would lose to focus towards our goal?
