* Follow your ends values
Quotes from the book:
-The greatest leverage you can create for yourself is the pain that comes from inside, not outside. Knowing that you have failed to live up to your own standards for your life is the ultimate pain
-It states “the desire for gain must exceed the fear of failure” in order to accomplish something.
-Once we effect a change, we should reinforce it immediately. Then, we have to condition our nervous system to succeed not just once, but consistently
-The difference between acting badly or brilliantly is not based on your ability, but on the state of your mind and/or body in any given moment
-All too often, the security of a mediocre present is more comfortable than the adventure of trying to be more in the future
