So keep on reading if you want to find out what book made Mark realize he was dreaming far too low and how he manages to read being blind in his left eye. And by the way, if you’re struggling to pronounce Mark’s name, that’s “Stru Chess Skee”.
My favorite book which could be read for business as well as non-business reasons is the Bible. I read it every morning as part of my morning routine. Other books that I highly recommend is Grant Cardone’s “The 10X Rule” and Tony Robbins’ “Awaken the Giant Within“.
YES! I love what Grant Cardone writes in The 10X Rule, “wouldn’t coming up short on a 10X target accomplish more than coming up short on one-tenth of that goal?” In other words, he says it’s better to fall short of a one million dollar goal than a $100,000 goal.
Grant Cardone: The 10X Rule and Be Obsessed or Be Average; Tony Robbins: Awaken the Giant Within; Mel Robbins: The 5 Second Rule; and Maxwell Maltz: The New Psycho-Cybernetics. These books will encourage you but more than that EQUIP you to win!
I don’t read nearly as much as I would like but I always read for a minimum of 30 minutes a day. Good days are an hour plus but I do have a business to build and a podcast to do so there’s that. I prefer ebooks on my iPad because being able to only see out of one eye, I need the ability to make the font larger and to inverse the screen at bedtime (white lettering on a black screen).
And how do I make time for reading? Schedule it! Rarely will I find time to read if I don’t.
I highlight extensively. And when I am re-reading an ebook, I will use a different highlight color each time I re-read a book. Things that really affect me will be added to my Day One journaling app and even shared on social media.
I choose books based on recommendations from people mainly. Right now, I am big on Grant Cardone as I’m sure you can tell. I prioritize books written by successful people. I want to find out how they got to where they are.
Book? Ha! I’m not reading one book right now. That’s crazy. LOL. Right now, I am re-reading Tony Robbins’ “Awaken the Giant Within” as part of my morning routine, I’m re-reading Grant Cardone’s “Sell or Be Sold” and, yep, there’s more, I’m reading Dr. Michael Oren’s “Six Day War“. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the reading I want AND run my business.
