If you want to make positive changes in your life and achieve your long-term goals, I can't think of a better way to do it than to learn how to become more self-disciplined.
Science has figured out a lot of interesting aspects of self-discipline and willpower, but most of this knowledge is buried deep inside long, boring scientific papers. If you'd like to benefit from these studies without actually reading them, this audiobook is for you. I've done the job for you and researched the most useful and viable scientific findings that will help you improve your self-discipline.
Here are just a few of things you will learn from this audiobook:

Unless you are an absolute beginner in self awareness, I would certainly not invest in this book. You can get way more info for free by browsing websites on internet. The author can be arrogant and pretentious at times. Additionally, I have a hard time taking seriously people that resolve to extreme behaviors to get things out of life.
The book is a summary of key points for building good habits and self-discipline. There are a lot of examples of eating healthy and losing weight as a lot of people can relate to that. Some tips are obvious, like replace candies with fruits or don't go shopping when you're hungry. There are also suggestions for small changes, like meditate for a minute or exercise for five minutes and build on that over time. The hardest part is getting started. If you can make it a habit to do something good, however small, it will get the momentum rolling to do more over time.
I am certain that the author is successful and that his message is well intended. However, he lost me at daily 16 hour fasting and icy cold showers. I just think that those extreme positions must be limited to a very small fraction of the worlds population. BMac.
As a person who struggles with temptation and impulses I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I can use and practice what's in it. I recommend repeated listening though to solidify what's gleaned. narration was clear and there were spots of humor I enjoyed and found refreshing. recommend you buy this one.
The book was worth the time. I like Mr. Meadows direct and easy approach. I will listen to more of Mr. Meadows books.
One of the first books that should be read by this author. it explains so much about the role dopamine plays in willpower and finally dispels the myth that willpower is a finite resource.
I loved how the author spoke and how he explains all he was and is and how much this CAN BE a reality. .I will absolutely listen again and my husband is now also wanting to listen after I told him about it..
loved it.used it to ptatice dpiritual prenciples in my every day lifr.some new thoughts.and iddad
Narration was ok, but he was all over the place with some pretty crazy suggestions on building self discipline. Much better books on will power and self-discipline out there.
