The Slight Edge Success Principles
The Slight Edge Success Principles : Each day, we make a multitude of what seem to be “tiny, insignificant” decisions. However, those decisions compounded over days, months, years and even decades define the quality of your life and if applied correctly, to your entrereneurial success
It was one of the first books we read as we entered the world of personal development back in 2005 and later re-read when we became entrepreneurs as we shared in our post The First Entrepreneur Books We Read
Now we’re reading The Slight Edge again as we prepare for a keynote presentation in Reno Nevada where we will be speaking in front of a room of online entrepreneurs and share how we use the slight edge success principles in our business…EVERY DAY
Easy to do? NO Easy Not to do? YES Does it make a difference? Of course it does!
The Slight Edge is a way of thinking, a way of processing information that enables you to make the daily choics that will lead you to success and the achievement of your goals in life. It’s the difference between those who make dream after dream come true while others just continue dreaming and often times spend their lives building dreams for someone else (that was what we were doing in our management consultancy business and most people do as employees)
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Meaning you have complete control over the direction that the rest of your life takes!
YOU >> CHOICE + BEHAVIOUR + HABIT + COMPOUNDED = GOALS
Where choice is a decision you make. Behaviour is an action you take and Habit is the repeated action and Compounded is time
But here’s the rub! YOU can adjust your attitude by getting inspired but that’s never going to be enough. YOU need a positive SLIGHT EDGE philosophy – thats the one that creates your attitdes, which creates your results, which creates your life.
We could go on but honestly you will get great value from reading (and/or listening) to The Slight Edge
Here’s some of our favourite quotes from The Slight Edge
“What I came to realize is that the information about how to become successful has always been readily available, but if the person absorbing that information doesn’t have the right philosophy to apply it the right way, success will elude their grasp.”
“If you don’t change your thinking, no amount of how-to’s will offer a real solution. It’s not the ‘hows’ it’s how you do the ‘hows'”
“Focusing on the actions is not enough, because it’s the attitude behind the actions that keeps those actions in place.”
“Your philosophy is your view of life, something beyond feelings and attitudes. Your philosophy drives your attitudes and feelings, which drive your actions.”
“That the things you do every single day, the things that don’t look dramatic, that don’t even look like they matter, do matter. That they not only make a difference – they make all the difference.”
“Everything you need to do to transform your life is easy to do. Simple little disciplines that, done consistently over time, will add up to the very biggest accomplishments.”
“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”
“It’s never too late to start. It’s always too late to wait.”
“A simple, positive action. A simple error in judgement. Either way, it’s the Slight Edge at work – working for you or working against you.”
