Daymond John knows what it means to push yourself hard – and he also knows how spectacularly a killer work ethic can pay off.

Daymond John – Rise and Grind Audio Book Summary
The founder of popular clothing brand FUBU and one of the original sharks on the infamous investing and startup show Shark Tank, Daymond John is a leading emblem of entrepreneurial success.
In his previous book, The Power of Broke, John outlined why he thinks coming from a background of poverty helped to instill within him the drive needed for his success. He follows up on that idea with his newest book, Rise and Grind: Outperform, Outwork, and Outhustle Your Way to a More Successful and Rewarding Life.
Rise and Grind outlines a clear and simple philosophy: when you make it a habit to get up and grind, every single day, you will be on the path to success. No matter how you look at it, John argues, there’s no substitute for pure, old-fashioned hard work. Despite the current trends of people looking to “make it quick” and find shortcuts for success, behind every successful businessman is a track record of intelligently driven, direct, hard work.
The key, John asserts, is to turn your work into a passionate habit. You need to get to the point where you wake up every day and don’t question whether or not you can do something, but question how you’re going to do it, and then push through with the necessary resilience in order to make that idea happen.
This is the secret of every successful entrepreneur, and is the number one determining factor behind what makes some people successful while others aren’t. John has seen that evidenced in his own life, those of his partners and associates, as well as the would-be entrepreneurs he sees on the Shark Tank.
This is an excellent book that tells it like it is. There are no shortcuts, there is only hustle. You can’t think your way around the need to grind. Instead, keen, intelligent thought is essential to combine with the grind, because your competitors are, and will always be doing the same thing. By combining these two traits, you’ll be nearly assured of success, regardless of the field in which you operate or the endeavor you seek. It isn’t just about fame or money, it’s about the satisfaction and fulfillment of getting up every day knowing that you’re on track to achieve your goals, whatever those goals may be.
