This is article is part of The 30-Day Challenge series. See all articles here.

I wanted to share some of the best quotes I have found recently. These are quotes that either changed the way I think about success or brought clarity to my mind.

The quotes are from two books that I love: Atomic Habits by James Clear and Principles by Ray Dalio.

“Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you’re willing to stick with them for years.”

“You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.”

“Winners and losers have the same goals.”

“You do not rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems.”

“If you only do the work when it’s convenient or exciting, then you’ll never be consistent enough to achieve remarkable results.”

– quotes by James Clear

“In order to have the best life possible, you have to:

  1. know what the best decisions are and
  2. have the courage to make them.”

“It is a fundamental law of nature that you get stronger only by doing difficult things.”

“Everyone makes mistakes. The main difference is that successful people learn from them and unsuccessful people don’t.”

“It seems to me that if you look back on yourself a year ago and aren’t shocked by how stupid you were, you haven’t learned much.”

“Intelligent people who embrace their mistakes and weaknesses substantially outperform their peers who have the same abilities but bigger ego barriers.”

“Self-reflectiveness is the quality that most differentiates those who evolve quickly from those who don’t.”

“Pain + Reflection = Progress”

Use the 5-step process to get what you want out of life:

  1. Have clear goals.
  2. Identify and don’t tolerate problems that stand in the way of your achieving those goals.
  3. Accurately diagnose problems to get at their root causes.
  4. Design plans that will get you around them.
  5. Do what’s necessary to push these designs through to results.

– quotes by Ray Dalio
