Mindset is one of those rare audio books that can help you make positive changes in your life and at the same time see the world in a new way. A leading expert in motivation and personality psychology, Carol Dweck has discovered in more than 20 years of research that our mindset is not a minor personality quirk: it creates our whole mental world. It explains how we become optimistic or pessimistic. It shapes our goals, our attitude toward work, and ultimately predicts whether or not we will fulfull our potential.

I found the book very repetitive. Maybe that was the point tho. She outlines the 2 mindsets then the rest of the book are different stories. I did find it opened my eyes to a new way of looking at situations. I would still recommend this book!

Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

First 2-3 chapters are great. Middle gets a bit redundant last chapter is a great finish.

We're in the middle of an epidemic of average. So-called "normal" people get up every day, go to work, do what's asked of them, leave promptly at five, and return home to sit on the couch and watch TV. Society tells us that this is what it means to lead a balanced life. Don't stress too much or work too hard. Your career isn't everything. But Grant Cardone thinks this preoccupation with balance has really just given an excuse to be mediocre.

This book awoke the sleeping giant inside. As a realtor I had slacked. I had became average. Before I had even finished the book I've probably profited $30,000-$40,000.

Now I'm obsessed and it feels sooooo good. When you know your destined for more being average kills you a little every day inside. Being obsessed feels like I've been saved!

Highly recommended. Even as someone who is well established and debt free currently I failed to complete step 1 property. A fully fu des emergency fund.

If you have zero or millions I would recommend this book and to everyone in between.

Real talk. Real advice. Get it!!!

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in nine Americans works in sales. Every day more than 15 million people earn their keep by persuading someone else to make a purchase. But dig deeper and a startling truth emerges: Yes, one in nine Americans works in sales. But so do the other eight. Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others.

I found the book fairly vague. As a direct salesperson in real estate I didn't find this book very practical. Lots of general sales topics and study's but not much to grab a hold of.

If you are in a service (not direct sales) business this may give you some insight into how to make some small changes to your business.
