The 10X Rule unveils the principle of "Massive Action," allowing you to blast through business cliches and risk-aversion while taking concrete steps to reach your dreams. It also demonstrates why people get stuck in the first three actions and how to move into making the 10X Rule a discipline.
Chapter 3: What is success?
" The economic events of the past several years should have made it obvious how badly we all underestimated the importance of success- and how essential it is actually to our survival."
You say - Sometimes, when I write down a plan, let's say earn a million in 5 years, I will purposely add one more zero to make it 10 million. Ironically, this makes me more motivated and work even harder!
I am an incredibly positive person but I cannot believe adding a nought could help you achieve?! Yes plan big but in a realistic way - that sounds like fairies at the bottom of the garden stuff! You don't explain instances of how it has worked for you.
There are stories of people hitting 100's of millions, even billions in shorter time frames than 5 years. The important thing is to have an end goal that is so unbelievably unrealistic that you're forever going to be dreaming about... Shoot for the stars and you'll hit the moon etc.
On top of that, though, it's important to set short-term achievable goals that cause you to take action. Yes, it's possible to be a multimillionaire in a few months with the right product, but it's not going to achieve that if you don't put the work in and achieve the right short term goals.
The 10x rule is a good idea, but should not be used in isolation of other goal setting methods.
