Books Description:

The Slight Edge is a way of thinking, a way of processing information that enables you to make the daily choices that will lead you to the success and happiness you desire. Learn why some people make dream after dream come true, while others just continue dreaming and spend their lives building dreams for someone else. It’s not just another self-help motivation tool of methods you must learn in order to travel the path to success. It shows you how to create powerful results from the simple daily activities of your life, by using tools that are already within you. In this 8th anniversary edition you’ll read not only the life-changing concepts of the original book, but also learn what author Jeff Olson discovered as he continued along the slight edge path: the Secret to Happiness and the Ripple Effect. This edition of The Slight Edge isn’t just the story, but also how the story continues to create life-altering dynamics—how a way of thinking, a way of processing information, can impact daily choices that will lead you to the success and happiness you desire. The Slight Edge is “the key” that will make all the other how-to books and self-help information that you read, watch and hear actually work.

Books Description:

From the millionaire entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author of The 10X Rule comes a bold and contrarian wake-up call for anyone truly ready for success. One of the 7 best motivational books of 2016, according to Inc. Magazine. Before Grant Cardone built five successful companies (and counting), became a multimillionaire, and wrote bestselling books... he was broke, jobless, and drug-addicted. Grant had grown up with big dreams, but friends and family told him to be more reasonable and less demanding. If he played by the rules, they said, he could enjoy everyone else’s version of middle class success. But when he tried it their way, he hit rock bottom. Then he tried the opposite approach. He said NO to the haters and naysayers and said YES to his burning, outrageous, animal obsession. He reclaimed his obsession with wanting to be a business rock star, a super salesman, a huge philanthropist. He wanted to live in a mansion and even own an airplane. Obsession made all of his wildest dreams come true. And it can help you achieve massive success too. As Grant says, we're in the middle of an epidemic of average. The conventional wisdom is to seek balance and take it easy. But that has really just given us an excuse to be unexceptional. If you want real success, you have to know how to harness your obsession to rocket to the top. This book will give you the inspiration and tools to break out of your cocoon of mediocrity and achieve your craziest dreams. Grant will teach you how to: · Set crazy goals—and reach them, every single day. · Feed the beast: when you value money and spend it on the right things, you get more of it. · Shut down the doubters—and use your haters as fuel. Whether you're a sales person, small business owner, or 9-to-5 working stiff, your path to happiness runs though your obsessions. It's a simple choice: be obsessed or be average.

Books Description:

Dave Hollis used to think that “personal growth” was just for broken people. Then he woke up. When Dave Hollis’s wife, Rachel, began writing her #1 New York Times bestselling book, Girl, Wash Your Face, he bristled at her transparency and her willingness to talk about such intimate details of their life. But when a looming career funk, a growing drinking problem, and a challenging trek through therapy battered the Disney executive and father of four, Dave began to realize he was letting untruths about himself dictate his life. As he sank to the bottom of his valley, he had to make a choice. Would he push himself out of his comfort zone to become the best man he was capable of being, or would he play it safe and settle for mediocrity? In Get Out of Your Own Way,Dave tackles topics he once found it difficult to be honest about, things like his struggles with alcohol, problems in his marriage, and his insecurities about being a dad. Dave helps us see our own journeys more clearly as he unpacks the lies he once believed—such as “I Have to Have It All Together,” “Failure Means You’re Weak,” and “If They Doesn’t Need Me, Will They Still Want Me?”—and reveals the tools that helped him change his life. Offering encouragement, challenge, and a hundred moments to laugh at himself, Dave points the way for those of us who are, like he was, skeptical of self-help but wanting something more than status quo, and helps us drop bogus ideas about who we are supposed to be and finally start living as who we really are.

Keith Ferrazzi, the internationally renowned thought leader, consultant, and bestselling author of Never Eat Alone, shows us that becoming a winner in any field of endeavor requires a trusted team of advisors who can offer guidance and help to hold us accountable to achieving our goals.

Books Description:

ABOUT THE ORIGINAL BOOK Success is not the product of chance, much less of magic or secret formulas. Success is achieved through consistent actions that are carried out every day with the right attitude and the necessary behavior. The media strives to sell us quick solutions to any problem that obstructs our achievements, but the time has come to ignore the easy answers that are not really going to take us anywhere. Nothing is built from nothing; every goal requires sustained effort and "quick success" is harmful and unreal.The success or rather, the lack of success, is a direct consequence of our daily decisions, which give direction to our life. This book is about how to pursue our goals and overcome any kind of obstacle. The compound effect is, therefore, an action plan that anyone can take advantage of to be as successful as Arnold Schwarzenegger or Michael Phelps. This is through making small changes in everyday decisions to generate other, larger, long-term changes. Ultimately, it's about taking responsibility for our own satisfaction and happiness.INTRODUCTION The modern world is obsessed with wealth, health and eternal youth, and aims to sell us fantastic remedies backed by unreal testimonies of people who achieved success by almost miraculous means. Among all this bombardment of information, or misinformation, we have found ourselves lost in confusion, which does not allow us to see where the pillars of success really are.To start depurating we must be aware that this is a slow process that will require a long period of practice. The objective is to transform this constant change into habits, that become automatic to the point where their practice no longer requires great effort. This can only be done over time. But the advantage is that the changes consist of very simple things, such as spending a greater part of the day on healthy pastimes instead of sitting in front of the television.All of the above also has the ability to determine our failure. It is almost impossible for us to achieve a radical change overnight. One day we can wake up, feel especially good and prone to a positive attitude that motivates us to face our fears and approach one more step to our goals. However, the next morning may not be so simple and we may wish to postpone the change until next week, hoping to feel better again. That is why when we aim for sudden changes, perseverance will not appear and without it, we will not be able to move forward.Therefore, the problem is not usually with our attitude nor the level of difficulty of the objectives that we set, but it is with our approach, which we must redirect from negative habits towards positive habits. This implies that our negative mentality, for example rooted in the concerns, changes towards a positive one.A small change that we can begin to make to help ourselves, is to disconnect from all those false means and start listening to motivational means, or surround ourselves with inspiring people in our environment. This will help us to make an in-depth revision of our habits, to develop an efficient plan that allows us to improve ourselves, and make the small daily decisions that will re-shape our day to day life.ABOUT DARREN HARDY: THE AUTHOR OF THE ORIGINAL BOOKDarren Hardy is a great entrepreneur and author regarding success and productivity. At the age of eighteen, he established a bus company that made him a millionaire, and at twenty-seven he was already a true winner in the real estate sector.He was also the executive producer of two television networks: Red Popular. He was the executive director and editor of the magazine SUCCESS, for which he interviewed a wide variety of business and opinion leaders, creating a great source of information with which he produced guides about success.He is a speaker and productivity coach, and has trained dozens of entrepreneurs.

Books Description:

Be more effective with less effort by learning how to identify and leverage the 80/20 principle: that 80 percent of all our results in business and in life stem from a mere 20 percent of our efforts. The 80/20 principle is one of the great secrets of highly effective people and organizations. Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts. Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today's business world, author Richard Koch reveals how the principle works and shows how we can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase our effectiveness, and improve our careers and our companies. The unspoken corollary to the 80/20 principle is that little of what we spend our time on actually counts. But by concentrating on those things that do, we can unlock the enormous potential of the magic 20 percent, and transform our effectiveness in our jobs, our careers, our businesses, and our lives.

Books Description:

Creating Authentic Customer Connections in a High-Tech World In The Relationship Economy, author John DiJulius teaches business leaders about the importance of relationship building in the digital age. He argues that in spite of (and because of) the advances in tech, we've become a less connected society. We have dramatically evolved away from face-to-face communication, and the skill of building rapport is evaporating. This means that customer personalization and relationships are more important now than ever—and they will be the key to success for businesses moving forward. As he aptly states, “Being able to build true sustainable relationships is the biggest competitive advantage in a world where automation, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are eliminating the human experience, which is what creates the emotional connections that build true customer loyalty.” This book reminds readers of the importance of personal connections and shows them how to attain meaningful, lasting relationships with their customers.
