Be Obsessed or Be Average By Grant Cardone
We’re in the middle of an epidemic of average. So-called “normal” people get up every day, go to work, do what’s asked of them, leave promptly at 5, and return home to sit on the couch and watch TV. Society tells us that this is what it means to lead a balanced life. Don’t stress too much or work too hard. Your career isn’t everything. But Grant Cardone thinks this preoccupation with balance has really just given an excuse to be mediocre.
Some of Grant Cardone’s maxims:
“Criticism is easily avoided by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.”
“Never fear the haters – fear the weak who listen to them.”
“Most people are dying at 20 and making it official at 80. Most people are living their life with nothing to brag or talk about.”
If you’re looking for someone to coddle you and make excuses for your lack of success, you’ve come to the wrong book.
In his own words, Grant Cardone explains the following:
“If you have been labeled obsessive, compulsive, ADD, ADHD, too much, over the top, a maniac, too intense, and more you must get Be Obsessed or Be Average. My entire life I was labeled these things and more. I was even prescribed drugs to manage my so called “issues.” When I finally learned how to use my obsessions rather than make excuses for them my life exploded. I finally found the girl of my dreams, wrote five best selling books, 12 best selling business programs, built a $500m real estate portfolio and got into the best physical and spiritual condition of my life.
In Be Obsessed or Be Average I will show you how to flip your so called problems into the gifts of genius and the energy necessary to fulfill your purpose and unique reason for even existing. I will show you how your obsessions and supposed neuroses are the very things you have in common with every great person that has ever walked this planet.”
