“Commitment is doing the thing you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.” – Darren Hardy

Darren Hardy (1971 – present) is the New York Times best-selling author of “The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster” and “The Compound Effect.” He’s also the publisher and founding editor of SUCCESS, a business magazine in the United States.

Hardy was already earning a six-figure income by age eighteen until he owned a company producing $50M a year in revenue by age twenty seven. He is one of the big names in the personal-development industry, having held executive positions at two personal-development-based television networks, namely The Peoples Network (TPN), and The Success Training Network (TSTN), where he launched over a thousand TV shows, live events, and products.

The quote above can be found in his 2010 self-development book, “The Compound Effect,” where he shared his own strategies for getting to the top. He emphasizes the significance of having a life-changing routine and committing to it, no matter the circumstance. He said, “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”

Developed unconscious habits of success are one of Hardy’s distinctions of superachievers, as mentioned in his interview with the Dayton Business Journal interview. He maintained that repeating an activity over and over becomes an unconscious habit, that’s why we have to be aware of what we habitually do because “we become what we practice the most.”

Doing the habit of making good choices doesn’t abruptly produce significant results, but success based on practice tends to happen more often.
