Opportunities, habits, compound effect, success

To turn opportunities into success you must practice consistent everyday habits of making simple positive changes and let the compound effect over time lead you to success in life and work.

That’s exactly what this book is about. The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy, publisher of SUCCESS magazine, is an inspirational book that shows you how to jumpstart your income, your life and your success by following the simple but powerfully effective principle of the compound effect. A book that guides you gently on the road to self improvement and keeping you on track on your success path.


I was never a success doing that! How often have we been sidetracked from achieving our long-term goals; something that we always wanted to do but never started.

I wish I would have come up this product? The seeds of invention or creating something new have been on our minds for long but somehow we never could make it a reality.


There is no magic bullet or a genie to achieving success; it’s hard work, time and some motivation and guidance. That’s exactly where this book comes in handy – the action exciting guide to motivate you to success.

Every decision you make today is leading you to your future building grounds. To act and to act mindfully is what adds on to the compound effect, but first you must know where you want to go.

Darren Hardy brings in effective real world examples to drive home the point that making small changes and adding small disciplines in your life will ‘lead you in the direction of your goals.’ The compound effect offers some free retargets on its website and that could be used for assessments and benchmarking success plans.

“Don’t wait another day to start the small disciplines that will lead you in the direction of our goals! The key is to start NOW. Every great act, every fantastic adventure, starts with small steps. The first step always looks harder than it actually is.”

We hear these and read about every now and then but how often do we put them to practice. Every now and then when we get a gentle nudge or a rude shake the emphasis is on action. Don’t just read along, have a pen and paper ready or your PDA to write down the action which you can take in your life now which can have a compound effect on your happiness in success over time.

To create profitable and effective routines, you must first decide what behaviors and habits you want to implement.

Perhaps these are not any amazing new tips, it has always been said and done. But a guidance and nudge is what is needed now and then to motivate us to action. This book comes well in time, before the year ends and a new year begins. Suddenly we realize that we have not met certain goals that we had set for this year. Time has sped at a faster rate than ever before and perhaps we are losing control. It is often more on we set our goals – the clarity, the purpose, the reasoning, the path and the follow-through. It’s time to analyze and to rectify what we can to ensure more success in future and even more fulfillment and happiness.

Darren Hardy puts it well:

“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.”


My inspiration for the year or maybe right now comes for the closing sentences of this book:

“It takes very little extra to be the EXTRAordinary. in all areas of your life, look for the multiplier opportunities where you can go a little further, push yourself a little harder, last a little longer, prepare a little better, and deliver a little bit more. Where can you do better than expected?”
