Success is a journey many aspire to have. Often, lots of people seek guidance from books.
Myself is included.
And here is what I’ve learnt from the book “The 10X Rule” by Grant Cardone.

30 Inspirational Traits of Success People From The Book ‘The 10X Rule’
- Stay Positive: Always approach situations with a positive mindset. Believe that challenges can be overcome.
- Problem-Solving Attitude: When you don’t know something, admit it, but also commit to finding a solution or seeking help.
- Focus on Opportunities: Big problems often hide big opportunities.
- Embrace Challenges: Don’t shy away from tough situations; they help you grow and win.
- Solve Problems: Successful people see problems as opportunities for reward.
- Persevere: Keep going until obstacles turn into support.
- Take Risks: Don’t fear failure; be willing to take calculated risks.
- Be Unconventional: Sometimes, acting outside of practical norms leads to success.
- Be Prepared: Train yourself to handle challenges and emerge victorious.
- Take Action Promptly: Unsuccessful individuals often discuss plans without executing them. Successful people understand that consistent, persistent action, even without immediate rewards, leads to future success. I rely on massive action, even during tough times.
- Embrace “Yes”: The word “yes” is full of life and potential. Avoid saying “no” unless necessary. Initially, say “yes” to opportunities, but as you become more successful, learn to manage your time by adding “no” strategically.
- Commit Habitually: Successful people remain committed despite challenges, staying true to their promises. Act as if you’re already successful and demonstrate this commitment to others.
- Go All In: Partial efforts yield no results. If you’ve contacted a client repeatedly without success, it’s like not contacting them at all.
- Focus on the Present: Successful people live in the present and plan for the future, while the unsuccessful dwell in the past or procrastinate. Take immediate action to shape your desired future. Procrastination is a significant weakness. Act now to build momentum and confidence. Quit overthinking and start doing. Discipline yourself to act promptly, and you’ll see an increase in both the quantity and quality of your work, boosting your confidence and conviction.
- Show Courage: Courage is the inner strength that makes people confront scary situations despite their fear. The more you tackle things that make you a bit uneasy, the more others will see you as courageous and be drawn to you. Courage comes from taking action, especially when facing your fears.
- Embrace Change: Don’t resist change; let it excite you. Change is an opportunity for growth and improvement.
- Find and Follow the Right Path: Successful individuals invest time, effort, and resources in self-improvement. When you’ve mastered your approach and are achieving success, it won’t feel like work; it will feel like triumph.
- Challenge Conventional Thinking: Companies like Google, Apple, and Facebook break with tradition to find better ways of doing things. They create new traditions instead of following established ones. Don’t limit yourself to accepted thinking; be a “thought leader” who envisions a better future through forward thinking. Don’t change things just for the sake of change; do it to create better products, relationships, and environments.
- Focus on Goals: Pay more attention to your objectives than the problems you encounter. If you don’t stay committed to your goals, you’ll spend your life achieving someone else’s goals. Writing down your goals keeps your focus on where you want to go, rather than dwelling on current difficulties.
- Have a Purpose: Unlike the unsuccessful, who view their work as a job, successful people approach their tasks as if they’re on a meaningful mission. Approach every endeavour with the belief that it could positively impact the world.
- Stay Highly Motivated: Motivation is the drive to take action. To succeed, you must stay excited and driven. Continually find new reasons to stay motivated and reach new levels of success. Keep giving yourself fresh reasons to keep going.
- Value Results: Successful people prioritize outcomes over the time spent or efforts made. Until you become obsessively focused on achieving results, you won’t reach your goals. Drive yourself to the max, so others don’t have to push you.
- Set Ambitious Goals: How big are your aspirations?
- Shape Your Reality: They don’t care about what others consider possible or impossible; they focus on making their dreams a reality.
- Commit First, Figure It Out Later: Success isn’t solely for the smartest; it’s for those who passionately commit to their cause.
- Maintain High Ethics: If you don’t give your all every day, you’re cheating on your family, future, and employer. Ethics means doing what you promised until you succeed. Effort without results is unethical—it’s self-deception and a breach of commitments.
- Value the Team: Your success depends on the people around you. Strive to elevate your team.
- Embrace Lifelong Learning: Successful CEOs read many books and attend numerous conferences each year.
- Elevate Your Relationships: Regularly connect with individuals who are better connected, educated, and more successful. Surround yourself with those who can help you achieve your goals.
- Practice Discipline: Discipline is a structured, repeatable behaviour that leads to your desired outcomes. Make productive habits part of your routine to achieve and maintain success.
