Jeff Haden Quotes

Many of these inspiring Jeff Haden quotes were discovered in one of his articles on Inc.com where Jeff is a contributing writer and editor. That led to the discovery of Jef’s book, The Motivation Myth, from which more gems of wisdom were mined.

Jeff is an exceptionally talented professional editor and writer of articles and books — his own and that of others as ghost writer.

Jeff has had years of experience in his own writing journey. Beyond that he’s had the opportunity to associate with and write about — and for — many highly successful entrepreneurs. We’re glad Jeff finally published his own tome of wisdom, The Motivation Myth.

We’re big on motivation and inspiration through quotes, which is why we’re sharing these. However, we also very much agree with Jeff’s summation of motivation:

I was in the grip of an insidious myth. I thought motivation was a prerequisite to starting a tedious learning process—a spark necessary to get me going. But motivation is really a result. Motivation is the fire that starts burning after you manually, painfully, coax it into existence, and it feeds on the satisfaction of seeing yourself make progress. The problem with waiting for motivation to strike is that it almost never comes with enough voltage to actually get you started.
~Excerpted from The Motivation Myth, by Jeff Haden, speaker, editor, author, ghost writer

Motivation begins when you do.

A slice of satisfaction, fulfillment, and happiness can be found in the achievement . . . but the real source of consistent, lasting happiness lies in the process.

When you consistently do the right things, success is predictable. Success is inevitable. You just can’t think about it too much. No obsessing allowed.

Goals – Jeff Haden Quotes

Have a goal, have a plan… and then be willing to maneuver. What seems like the wrong place might actually be the right place. That chance meeting might be the start of an important partnership or collaboration. What seems like bad luck might cause you to stumble on an idea, a market, a new business… As long as you’re open to the possibility.
~Jeff Haden, speaker, editor, ghost writer, author

The road to a target, to a goal, to a finish line is filled with countless hours of work and determination and sacrifice . . . and countless opportunities to feel good about what you have accomplished, each and every day along the way.
~Jeff Haden, speaker, editor, ghost writer, author

SOURCE: Excerpt, The Motivation Myth, by Jeff Haden

Be ‘unrealistic’ when you set a goal, and then be realistic about how you will achieve that goal.
~Jeff Haden, speaker, editor, ghost writer, author

Incredibly successful people set a goal and then focus all their attention on the process necessary to achieve that goal.

Hard Work – Jeff Haden Quotes

Hard work tends to be rewarded. 
~Jeff Haden, speaker, editor, ghost writer, author

SOURCE: Inc.com article

It’s easy to look back on a path to greatness and assume every vision was clear, every plan was perfect, every step was executed flawlessly, and tremendous success was a foregone conclusion. It wasn’t.

Success is never assured. Only in hindsight does it appear that way.

If you’re willing to work hard, and persevere, and take the right steps and follow the right processes day after day after day, who you are is more than enough.
