Looking for the best trust the process quotes of all time?

You're in the right place!

Here's what you'll find on this page...

Success Comes From Trusting the Process.

Two of my favorite productivity books of all time are The Compound Effect and The Slight Edge.

You know why?

Because they do a great job of reminding me that the most important parts of achieving any goal are preparation and patience and persistence.

Success doesn’t come from big sprints. Even when it might look like that from the outside.

Success comes from waking up every day and putting one foot in front of the other, no matter how hard or how futile that feels.

Success comes from trusting the process.

And yet…

Why Is It So Hard to Trust the Process?

Trusting the process is hard because humans tend to think in straight lines.

In other words, if we put consistent time and effort IN TO to a goal we expect and feel like we deserve consistent rewards to come OUT OF it (see milestones M1 and M2 below)…

The problem?

Nature almost NEVER takes a straight line.

In fact if there’s anything consistent at all, it’s that progress usually compounds…

Which means we rarely get results when we expect them.

Which often leads us to the pit of despair…

But here’s the truth…

The fact that you think that way isn’t your fault.

No matter how many times you go through this, your brain will still try to think linearly. (We are hard wired to underestimate compounding.)

The good news? There are some solutions.

And one of the simplest is just to remind yourself on a regular basis that people who’ve been there and done great things have all been where you’re sitting right now.
