Jeff Olson Quotes 804220

You know what you're supposed to eat. We all do. Fresh fruits and vegetables, complex carbs, salads, whole grains, lean meats, more fish and poultry and less beef. ... You know it, I know it, we all know it. So why do so many of us still go out and chow down cheeseburgers and fries every day? I'll tell you why: because it won't kill us. Not today. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 559343

A positive philosophy turns into a positive attitude, which turns into positive actions, which turns into positive results, which turns into a positive lifestyle. A positive life. And a negative philosophy turns into a negative attitude, which turns into negative actions, which turns into negative results, which turns into a negative lifestyle. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 573541

Americans know they're overweight. In fact, we spend huge amounts of money on diet books and diet programs to help us lose that burdensome extra weight. There are more than 30,000 fitness clubs in the United States, all aimed at serving the national desire to lose weight and be fit. And it's not just a question of being a little too heavy, or of how we look. Nutrition is one of the most significant factors in society's major killers, like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Most of us are literally digging our graves with our teeth. And we know all this - yet clearly the majority of us aren't doing anything about it. Why not? — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1390858

Successful people do the things that unsuccessful people won't do. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 82813

Things like taking a few dollars out of a paycheck, putting it into savings, and leaving it there. Or doing a few minutes of exercise every day - and not skipping it. Or reading ten pages of an inspiring, educational, life-changing book every day. Or taking a moment to tell someone how much you appreciate them, and doing that consistently, every day, for months and years. Little things that seem insignificant in the doing, yet when compounded over time yield very big results. You could call these "little virtues" or "success habits." I call them simple daily disciplines. Simple productive actions, repeated consistently over time. That, in a nutshell, is the slight edge. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1065432

Your habits operate at the unconscious level; you are not normally aware of them. It's only by bringing a habit into your conscious awareness that you can observe what it's doing, how it empowers and serves you or doesn't. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1950773

You can't build your dream by what you're going to do or planning to do or intend to do. You only build your dream by building it. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 427817

Each and every incomplete thing in your life or work exerts a draining force on you, sucking the energy of accomplishment and success out of you as surely as a vampire stealing your blood. Every incomplete promise, commitment and agreement saps your strength, because it blocks your momentum, inhibits your ability to move forward, to progress and improve. Incomplete things keep calling you back to the past to take care of them. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 564311

When you don't take responsibility, when you blame others, circumstances, fate or chance, you give away your power. When you take and retain full responsibility - even when others are wrong or the situation is genuinely unfair - you keep your life's reins in your own hands. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 628594

Make a simple roadmap for each one, consisting of three elements: 1) your dreams for that area, expressed as goals - specific, vivid, and with a timeline; 2) a simple plan to start (and when I say simple think: "find Germans"); and 3) one simple daily discipline that you will commit to doing each and every day from now on. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 690277

Gandhi put it this way: First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 905108

The truth is, what you do matters. What you do today matters. What you do every day matters. Successful people just do the things that seem to make no difference in the act of doing them and they do them over and over and over until the compound effect kicks in. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 927000

Being productive and being busy are not necessarily the same thing. Doing things won't create your success; doing the right things will. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 982481

I am a great believer in luck. The harder I work, the more of it I seem to have. - Coleman Cox — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1032789

Another good image for the slight edge is Lady Justice, the blindfolded statue. The statue itself, of the woman holding the scales and sword to represent the idea of justice, has been around since the days of ancient Rome, but in those days it didn't wear a blindfold. That part wasn't added until the sixteenth century, during the renaissance in thinking that eventually gave birth to our modern ideas of representative democracy and universal human rights. The blindfold doesn't imply that justice is "blind," as people sometimes assume; its point is that true justice is impervious to external influence. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1055305

It's always too late to wait. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1374093

You can gauge the limitations of a person's life by the size of the problems that get him or her down. You can measure the impact a person's life has by the size of the problems he or she solves. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1382916

The question we should be asking. Would I want to be sponsored by me? — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1386576

The reason diets and other how-to's don't work for most people is the same reason most how-to books and courses don't work for most people. It isn't that the actions are wrong. It's that people don't keep doing them. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1463006

Sometimes you need to slow down to go fast. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1469833

No matter what you have done in your life up until today, no matter where you are and how far down you may have slid on the failure curve, you can start fresh, building a positive pattern of success, at any time. Including right now. But you need to have faith in the process, because you won't see it happening at first. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1567860

There are three simple, essential steps to achieving a goal: Write it down: give it a what (clear description) and a when (timeline). Look at it every day: keep it in your face; soak your subconscious in it. Start with a plan: make the plan simple. The point of the plan is not that it will get you there, but that it will get you started. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1729360

Shawn Achor's five happy habits: Every morning write down three new things you're grateful for. Journal for two minutes a day about a positive experience from the past 24 hours. Meditate daily for a few minutes. At the start of every day, write an email to someone praising or thanking them. Get fifteen minutes of simple cardio exercise a day. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1748858

The slight edge can carve the Grand Canyon. It can do anything. But you have to give it enough time for the power of time to kick in. The right choices and wrong choices you make at the moment will have little or no noticeable impact on how your day goes for you. Nor tomorrow, nor the next day. No applause, no cheers, no screams, no life-or-death — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1856927

So when bad things are happening to you, embrace the funk. That, too, is cultivating positive outlook. When something is hard or difficult and adversity is at your front door, embrace it, because it will make you stronger and your life richer. You can't know happiness unless you feel sadness. If you embrace it as part of the process, it can be life-altering. Life is going to get you down and the funk is going to get you. Embrace it and fight through it and know you are not alone. Take baby steps, remember all the slight edge allies you have, and know that there is a path out of the funk. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1903526

Every day, in every moment, you get to exercise choices that will determine whether or not you will become a great person, living a great life. Greatness is not something predetermined, predestined or carved into your fate by forces beyond your control. Greatness is always in the moment of the decision. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1914243

You may get inspired by that uplifting story or inspirational pep talk, but you can't freeze that feeling or glue the emotions of the moment into place. Emotions change like the wind, and you can't stop them. No one can. They keep moving; that's why they're called emotions and not e-standingstills. You can't dictate how you feel. No matter how much you may tell yourself to feel positive about this how-to step or that how-to step, what if you just don't? Today, you're excited about getting fit. You feel like doing your twenty minutes on the treadmill. Great! But what if tomorrow you just don't feel like doing it? To find the path to success, you have to back up one more step. It's the understanding behind the attitudes that are behind the actions. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1930166

How you feed your mind is every bit as critical to your happiness as how you feed your body. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1934751

We only need to walk or bike ten percent of the time to make a significant change in society. That is just two days of walking, bicycling or taking transit per month for a typical commuter. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1945675

You plant, then you cultivate, and finally you harvest. Plant, cultivate, harvest. In today's world, everyone wants to go directly from plant to harvest. — Jeff Olson

Jeff Olson Quotes 1981735

Jeff Olson Quotes 2084890

I've always said if somebody wrote a book and they took their whole life to learn that knowledge in that book, why you won't just read that book to learn what they know?

Jeff Olson Quotes 2193782
