Maintain Your Gear: Surefire Strategies to Dominate, Execute, and Scale in Business and Life


Get a “safe” job. Work nine-to-five. Take out a mortgage. Invest in your 401(k). Then, forty years later, maybe you can retire at about that same mediocre standard of living. And then, you die.

Most people call this the American dream. Joseph McCabe calls it the middle-class trap. But it’s a trap you can escape—if you’re willing to go to war for your success.

Maintain your gear is a military saying that defines a way of life. It is the practice of owning everything in your world to an extreme degree. It means you are solely responsible for everything that could possibly make your mission successful. This concept can be daunting at first, but it is ultimately empowering. Once you accept that everything that happens does so because of you, you realize you have ultimate control over your success!

This book is for leaders, salespeople, employees, students, soldiers, and all others who want to own every part of their lives. If you can't figure out what is holding you back, this book will help you realize that you are holding yourselfback. There are no secrets, gimmicks, or tricks in this book, nor is there a hidden agenda. The only goal is your success.
