The Slight Edge, by Jeff Olson is a fantastic book. When I started my journey into entrepreneurship, this was the first book I read. This book is great for everyone! The principles inside of it can be applied to many areas in life. It is for this reason that I am starting my mindset blog with a post about this book.
I do not want to ruin the book for you, so I will provide one or two concepts. The slight edge is constantly at work. It is working for you or against you. That is why you need to read this book as the first step to transforming your mindset. You want the slight edge working for you, so you can take steps to transforming your life.
The other concept I wanted to touch on is taking action. I do not know how you feel, but I often felt like if I could not make a significant step towards a goal that I would not act at all. By that I mean I did not see the value in taking a small step. I felt I had to take big steps. Thanks to this book, I understood the value of taking small steps. Taking small steps is very empowering. When you take a small step, you are closer to making your dream a reality!
So if you are serious are making your dreams reality, I have some action steps for you. Buy The Slight Edge, by Jeff Olson. Read it as many times as you have to for it to make sense. The next step is for you to celebrate small steps towards what you want to achieve. This does not mean having a crazy party and binge watching movies! Take that small step and tell yourself how awesome you are for being closer to your goal. Once you have done that, you just need to keep making small steps.
Imagine a small step every day! Who takes 365 small steps toward a goal in a single year? What if those small steps took five minutes? How awesome is that!
Thank you and congrats on taking your first steps to being your own leader.
