Work Like You Are Paid 10X Your Wildest Dreams
Whatever you think you need to do to get the job done, increase the amount far more than you think is necessary and you’ll get results beyond your wildest expectations. You must begin with having a 10X Attitude. Here are 2 important tips for having a 10X Attitude:
1. Be Willing to Expend Energy: A lot of people won’t expend energy without complete assurance of immediate or short-term payoff. An attitude like this only guarantees the demise of your economy. I often see others setting conditions on what they are willing to do and hear others say, “There is no way I am going to work any harder than I have been” or “There is no way I will work for that little bit of money.” Abandon this kind of outlook immediately. You have to be willing to do whatever it takes, regardless of how much effort it takes or how insignificant the payoff seems to be.

If I had to take a second job flipping hamburgers to take care of my family, I would flip burgers. If I have to wash cars to take care of my family, I will wash cars. Drop the arrogance, your old beliefs, and any limitations on what you are willing to do, and get going on producing your economy. Pack your calendar with efforts at production and be willing to expend your energy.
2. Don’t Treat It as a Grind: In order for your life not to feel like “work”—or like you’re running on a hamster wheel—you must think in terms of the right volumes. Work is only a grind when your mindset and actions are too small and will not create enough of a payoff. You are capable of much more than you’re doing now. Once you match your mindset with the right purpose, you will start taking 10X actions—and find yourself simultaneously propelled into more places than you ever thought possible.
People act as though work is something to get through, yet in reality, they spend very little of their time even doing it. Most people only work enough so that it feels like work, whereas successful people work at a pace that gets such satisfying results that work is a reward. Truly successful people don’t even call it work; for them, it’s a passion. Why? Because they do enough to win. Quit treating it as a grind!
Anyone who tells you that you’re working too hard is not working hard enough.
Money may not make people happy, but production and results will. Working harder while you are at the office will make it feel less like work and more like success. It all starts with having the right attitude.
