Publisher's Summary

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.
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 huge philanthropist, live in a mansion, 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 achieve balance and take it easy. But this has really just given us an excuse to be unexceptional.
If you want real success, you have to be obsessed and know how to harness that power 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
You can be obsessed...or you can be average. It’s your choice. Why not start going full-throttle towards your obsession today?

Quit whining and get obsessed!

If you could sum up Be Obsessed or Be Average in three words, what would they be?

In. Your. Face.

What other book might you compare Be Obsessed or Be Average to, and why?

Possibly something by Tony Robbins, but this guy is waaaaay more intense!

Have you listened to any of Grant Cardone’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my first (and I'll definitely get more!)

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

No excuses.

Any additional comments?

Ok,yeah GC is loud, obnoxious and arrogant (and he's entitled to be, he's made an incredible life for himself). And yeah, he swears. But man, he puts a rocket up your behind like not other!!! It took me two weeks to get through this book. I listened each morning as I got ready for work (I work freelance from home) and each day I have gone to work and pushed myself harder and further than I ever dreamed I would. He really makes you see that you can't get what you want as well as make excuses for why you're not trying hard enough (we've all got them!). I'm absolutely exhausted but still pushing myself! Because when you're obsessed you don't care about being tired! Thanks GC!I would say this isn't for newbies to the self-help world because it's pretty hard core, so it's perfect for extreme self-helpers! But then again, if you're looking for inspiration and motivation and you are really ready to put the work in, this book will do that whether you are new to self help or not.Now tempted to get 10x! I'm obsessed!!!

For my personal development I listen at least one audiobook per week. It is only rare to discover a book that challenges your thinking over and over again. I listened this book 1.5x speed, which makes Grant Cardone even more intense then he already is.
If you want you drive and passion to be lifted to another level, this is the book for you.
