We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. ~ Aristotle

What Is Your Philosophy?

What??? That would have been my reaction if you had asked me that question a few months ago. I had never stopped to really think about it till I read an awesome book by Jeff Olson called The Slight Edge!

Your philosophy is your view of life something beyond feelings and attitudes, it is what drives those feeling and attitudes which in turn drives your actions. So if you want an attitude adjustment, change your philosophy!   I have learned that the best gift you can give yourself is your own personal development! Investing in improving your own personal growth and betterment is the best thing you can do for yourself because things don't stand still, you are either moving forward or.......  moving backward! I want to be moving forward in every area;  health, relationships, finances, and life so how do I plan to do that?  Simple positive actions repeated over time, that's how!!!

"Simple little disciplines that, done consistently over time, will add up to the very big accomplishments." - Jeff Olson

I would encourage anyone and everyone to read this book. Your life will be better for it!
