The Compound Effect

1️⃣ To achieve bigger things in your life, it’s not that one big thing that’ll contribute to your success, it’s a series of small things/habits that make you a better person to achieve your goals.

2️⃣ It doesn’t matter how smart you’re or how much your IQ is, you can achieve anything in your life when you do the most essential thing consistently with enough persistence.

3️⃣ Take 100% responsibility for your failures and mistakes. Don’t blame any other person or circumstances, it all happens because of your decisions. So, make conscious decisions to become successful in your journey.

4️⃣ Choices are the root of your results. Each choice starts a behavior that over time becomes a habit and makes one a good decision maker and a successful person. So concentrate more on developing good habits that contribute to your goals and make them routine.

5️⃣ Identify your motivation and what drives you the most. Make sure your goals are clearly defined, only then a person can develop habits and make choices according to them.

6️⃣ Point out the bad habits holding you back and remove them from your life. One can remove bad habits by identifying the trigger points and cleaning up the things that compel us to do that. Another way is by swapping the bad habits with good ones.

7️⃣ After developing good habits you need momentum, which helps you to push through the tough times that is when you strive to maintain those good habits. Be in momentum by doing things consistently which helps you to be in a flow state.

8️⃣ Although you want to be consistent, you have to be consistently positive. If you notice any routine that no longer contributes to you in a better way, then remove it from your life.

9️⃣ Explore yourself in an environment that makes establishing the compound effect easier. Try to be surrounded by positive, optimistic, and like-minded people to achieve your goals.

🔟 Always be accelerated to do the extra work to switch from an ordinary to an extraordinary person and to break out all the obstacles that make you stay backward.

So, in a nutshell, we all are capable of doing great things and we all can be successful in our life. Just define your goals clearly, make wise choices, develop good habits, track them over time and be consistent to be in the momentum. All those small good habits and decisions will compound over time in your life and you’ll achieve your goals. 💪😄 🌟
