The Compound Effect – Darren Hardy
My favorite quotes from the book The Compound Effect: Jumpstart Your Income, Your Life, Your Success by Darren Hardy which I rated 4/5 on my Goodreads account:
When the reason is big enough, you'll be willing to perform almost any 'how'.
Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon... must inevitably come to pass! ~ P. Meyer
Never ask advise of someone with whom you wouldn't wanna trade places.
You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.
Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.
You alone are responsible for what you do, don’t do, or how you respond to what’s done to you.
Forget about willpower. It's time for why-power. Your choices are only meaningful when you connect them to your desires and dreams. The wisest and most motivating choices are the ones aligned with that which you identify as your purpose, your core self, and your highest values. You've got to want something, and know why you want it, or you'll end up giving up too easily.
It's not the big things that add up in the end; it's the hundreds, thousands, or millions of little things that separate the ordinary from the extraordinary.
The first step toward change is awareness. If you want to get from where you are to where you want to be, you have to start by becoming aware of the choices that lead you away from your desired destination.
Your biggest challenge isn’t that you’ve intentionally been making bad choices. Heck, that would be easy to fix. Your biggest challenge is that you’ve been sleepwalking through your choices.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge.
The real cost of a four-dollar-a-day coffee habit over 20 years is $51,833.79. That’s the power of the Compound Effect.
All winners are trackers.
Consistency is the key to achieving and maintaining momentum.
