“Billions of dollars are spent every day to manipulate and change your thoughts, desires, and behaviors. The reference points for your own success are being created for you, not by you. If you’re not paying for the product, then your behavior change is the product.” ― Benjamin P. Hardy, The Gap and The Gain:
“When you’re in the GAIN, you transform your experiences. In the GAP, you compare your experiences to other people’s, and feel worse off as a result. You don’t take ownership of your experiences, but instead, you distance yourself emotionally from them, which ends up creating debilitating trauma of varying degrees.” ― Benjamin P. Hardy, The Gap and The Gain: The High Achievers' Guide to Happiness, Confidence, and Success
“You have an ideal in your mind, and you’re measuring yourself against your ideal, rather than against the actual progress you’ve made. This is why you’re unhappy with what you’ve done, and it’s probably why you’re unhappy with everything in your life.” ― Dan Sullivan, The Gap and The Gain:
“Transforming” your experiences means you go back to your former experiences again and again and, through your evolving thinking and reasoning, change what those experiences mean to you. You also continually extract new lessons from those experiences” ― Benjamin P. Hardy, The Gap and The Gain
“If you focus on what you lack, you lose what you have. If you focus on what you have, you gain what you lack.”
