Synopsis: 

In a highlight reel, microwave world — we’re led to believe success is right around the corner.

It’s not working.

Not only is it not working with our ability to achieve our goals, we’ve never been more frustrated, stuck and unfulfilled.

But what if there was a way to shut out the noise, fall in love with the process and take one step forward every single day — leading to an undeniable confidence as we paint our life’s masterpiece?

Enter The 1% Rule — a daily system designed to help you close the gap without the crushing pressure that leads most people less inspired, and more stuck.

The 1% Rule was designed to answer three core questions:

Why do some people seem to achieve massive success in everything they do, while others can’t even get out of their own way?

What separates those who get excited and inspired for a season, a quarter, a month or a week — and those who are consistently on fire?

What are the core principles, mindsets, habits and rituals of those who execute ruthlessly, and those who sit on the sidelines pondering?

…through exploring these answers over the last decade the core principles, strategies and proven framework of The 1% Rule were born and are now yours today.

If you’re ready to ditch the highlight reel illusion…

If you’re tired of sitting on the sidelines waiting…

If you’re frustrated with the 24/7 noise…

You’ve come to the right place.

 

Review: 

I won this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. Thank to you Goodreads, Tommy Baker, and Archangel Ink for a copy of the book. As always, an honest review.

The 1% Rule is all about the process of achieving your goals, your big dreams, the wildest possibilities. First of all the author is very motivational, which you want in a business self help type book. He truly inspired me to start making more positive changes in my life. But even better, most of the book centers around practical steps to make your big dreams a possibility.

I loved that he focused on breaking everything down into small daily steps to hold yourself accountable. It will be different for each person, since each person’s goal and process is unique. The emphasis is on putting in the mundane, necessary hard work each day. Over time the results will at least add up, if not compound on each other. The process makes absolute sense yet many books don’t focus on this. I also appreciated the focus on doing what works for you and not worrying what other people think. I also loved the little trick the author uses to keep motivated. Makes complete sense and is incredibly helpful when you get in a slump.

Even with all these amazing aspects, at times it felt a bit much. It’s definitely a book for highly motivated people who will stop at nothing to make their dreams a reality. I prefer, and actually require, a bit more balance and calmness in my life.

However, I’ve already implemented changes in my daily routine based on the author’s suggestions in the book. Keeping myself accountable and putting in consistent daily work towards my book blog. And I’ve already seen small improvements. The 1% Rule is a self help book geared towards business that might actually help you get where you want to go.
