“This one basic principle serves as a masterclass in positive psychology, healthy relationships, mental well-being, and high-performance. The GAP and the GAIN can do everything that psychologists know about how to make a high-functioning and successful person.” (Benjamin Hardy, Ph.D.)
The majority of people, particularly those with strong ambitions, are dissatisfied with how they track their progress. We all have a “ideal,” a changing target that we never seem to be able to reach. We’re in “the gap” when we compare ourselves to that ideal. When we compare ourselves to our past selves, however, we are in “the gain.”
This is where the concept of the gap and gain comes into play. It was created by Dan Sullivan, a famed entrepreneur coach, and is based on his work with tens of thousands of successful business owners. When Dan’s coaching clients take stock of all they’ve accomplished – both personally and professionally – they’re frequently surprised at how much they’ve accomplished. They couldn’t enjoy their progress because they were always comparing themselves to their ideas or ambitions, no matter how much they accomplished.
You’ll learn in this book that comparing your current self to your old self provides a lot of psychological benefits. And that’s the secret to this deceptively simple yet nuanced concept: it’ll make you feel good, appreciative, and like you’re making progress even when things are difficult, which will boost motivation, confidence, and future success.
If you’ve tried everything and still can’t seem to find happiness, this simple mentality shift will send you on a life-changing path to greater contentment and success.
