The Compound Effect Quotes

You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.
You alone are responsible for what you do, don’t do, or how you respond to what’s done to you.
Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE.
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.

A daily routine built on good habits and disciplines separates the most successful among us from everyone else. A routine is exceptionally powerful.
We can all make powerful choices. We can all take back control by not blaming chance, fate, or anyone else for our outcomes. It’s within our ability to cause everything to change. Rather than letting past hurtful experiences sap our energy and sabotage our success, we can use them to fuel positive, constructive change.
The dream in your heart may be bigger than the environment in which you find yourself. Sometimes you have to get out of that environment to see that dream fulfilled. It’s like planting an oak sapling in a pot. Once it becomes rootbound, its growth is limited. It needs a great space to become a mighty oak. So do you.
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.
Consistency is the key to achieving and maintaining momentum.
There’s nothing wrong with ordinary. I just prefer to shoot for extraordinary.
If you are not making the progress that you would like to make and are capable of making, it is simply because your goals are not clearly defined.
Losing is a habit. So is winning. Now let’s work on permanently instilling winning habits into your life.
The Compound Effect is the principle of reaping huge rewards from a series of small, smart choices.
Since your outcomes are all a result of your moment-to-moment choices, you have incredible power to change your life by changing those choices. Step by step, day by day, your choices will shape your actions until they become habits, where practice makes them permanent.
