    Story
    "Learn Self-Discipline, on your time!"
    If you could sum up Self Discipline in three words, what would they be?

    Willpower, Achievement, Goal-Reaching


    What did you like best about this story?

    The section about eating the appropriate foods was really eye-opening. I thought motivation was purely a mental-game. But it appears that I can stay more motivated by watching my diet!


    What about Joshua Mackey’s performance did you like?

    He's a very clear speaker, and manages to sound enthusiastic over the whole book. It doesn't sound like he's reading from a script either.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, but neither of those. It really made me want to get up and do something! I actually started putting into action some of the items on my bucket list because of this book!


    Any additional comments?

    If you're struggling to start something like getting a project off of the ground, going to the gym, or starting a new activity, you owe it to yourself to get this book! You won't regret it!

    The audio book exceed my expectations.
    Provided an opportunity for me to self reflect and see where I need to change.
    Supports the concepts of other greats such as John Maxwell.

    Story
    "You need this book to better your self-discipline!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Self Discipline to be better than the print version?

    I'd say the audiobook is a lot better than the print version. This is because you can understand the work better, and retain information longer.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I went into reading Self-discipline cautious, as I do with every self-help book. By the end of the book, though, I knew it was the perfect book to bring my self-discipline up. I loved learning that with self-discipline and persuasion, it can bring me better opportunities at the work place, and even make my relationships better. I also appreciated the information that winners have a strong willpower and they don't give up. What helped me learn how to build up my willpower is to think of our willpower, which has been proven to be a limited source, as filling up the gas tank in a car; I have to do some things to refill my willpower. This being cut down on sugary snacks and beverages, choose whole grain food options when available, and more.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Chapters three and four were my favorites. Three because it gave tips on how to build my willpower, and four because it was about self-discipline. I learned that to do anything, especially improve our self-discipline, we have to take a look at ourselves. We also need to figure out our strengths and weaknesses, and make goals we want to achieve. With self-discipline, you need to make sure you are not overwhelming yourself when trying to build your self-discipline and make small changes to your life at a time.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Self Discipline?

    I think the insight from chapters one, three, and four is what I will really apply into my life. I've always struggled with willpower and self-discipline problems. I believe that, if I follow the exercises and tips in Ace McCloud's book, I can not only improve these two things in my life, but also improve my quality of life, my relationships, and even my career!


    Any additional comments?

    This book can help anyone suffering from self-discipline and willpower issues. It may seem impossible at first, but if you read this book, follow the exercises, and listen to what Mr. McCloud has to say, your life will improve greatly! Mine sure has. This guy knows what he is talking about.

    strong willpower, discipline and self-esteem


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was a great book, as it changed how I could think and act.


    What does Joshua Mackey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Before reading this book, I did not know that in order to be successful in your field, you need to maintain discipline with yourself, your health, money, work and other things.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When it especially spoke about thriving at your job or have better relationships with the people through Self Discipline.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not have to tell why gaining or improving these skill sets are so important. The benefits through this book will be tremendous in helping attain one’s goals, thriving at a job/profession or have better relationships with the people that matter in your life. Couldn't recommend it enough.

    "Influence yourself to success"

    I found this audio-book highly motivating, and would recommend it to anyone looking to increase their willpower and self-control. I learned some easy ways to boost my influence and persuasion skills, which are useful to use on myself when I need to talk myself into doing something. It was very interesting to learn about some of the things that can affect willpower, and ways in which to strengthen it.

    The audio-book includes some simple and effective step by step exercises that help to build a more positive self image and be more confident. I found the tips really helpful, for example the list of habits that build willpower, and instructions on how to create a motivational list. I also found the quotations really inspiring.

    "Super hints and tips to improve Self Discipline"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Self Discipline to be better than the print version?

    They are equally as good, I found it useful having it in both formats so I could make notes while listening.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Self Discipline?

    I really loved the bits that went into the biological factors surrounding our ability to be disciplined - it was really interesting to know that low blood sugar levels can be damaging to our ability to remain disciplined and will be taking it into account in future.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favourite?

    This is a how to inormation book, so no characters, but Josh did a good job of keeping it interesting and helping you to take points on board.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not exactly, but I like the idea that self discipline is like a muscle, that you need to work it to make it stronger!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great guide with some well-researched and interesting information, which I will be happy to put into practice in my own life. Thanks Ace and Josh - I will be downloading more!

    If you could sum up Self Discipline in three words, what would they be?

    Useful. Contemplative. Engaging.


    What did you like best about this story?

    While not a story in the strictest sense of the word, the theme and purpose of the book was useful; self-discipline, even if not to the point of Kolinahr, is something that can be very useful in one's personal life as much as a professional one depending on personal events and the disposition of the individual.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes; the narrator was well-paced.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.

    Story
    "Highly motivating"
    Where does Self Discipline rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Self Discipline is a mighty book, that offers a huge amount of motivational information in a compact form. With a listening time of just over an hour, it leaves you with the feeling that you have just heard a week of seminars on the subject. The book itself tells you how to deal with this without becoming overwhelmed, and there are scores of practical suggestions as to where to begin, how to progress and how to succeed. I would rank the book in the top 3 motivational books I have ever listened to, in terms of content and capacity to initiate real change.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Self Discipline?

    The walk through "how to" in relation to focussing down on one (big) thing and progressing it through to success was extremely helpful. I, like many of us, can become overwhelmed by wanting to change too much, all at the same time. Also the idea that our actions are the outcome of what we have truly decided, so if there is no new action, we have not truly decided to change.


    What does Joshua Mackey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    In his usual style, Joshua brings his innate enthusiasm and clarity to the presentation of this subject, where it adds an extra layer of positivity.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I actually listened in two sittings, because I began listening when I didn't have time to complete it, but when the time came to switch it off I didn't want to; I was making notes while listening and feeling very inspired for change.


    Any additional comments?

    Self Discipline takes you through building competence in persuasion, will power and discipline; looks at how to fight the need for instant gratification; and then at some great role models. However, the detail covers a massive range of subjects from blood sugar fluctuation, to laughter therapy and practicing gratitude. A worthy listen.

    "Self Discipline Explained!"
    What did you like most about Self Discipline?

    This is the second book I've listened to by Ace McCloud and just like the first, Self Discipline is tremendous at outlining all the key elements to consider when it comes to self-discipline. The book manages to strike that perfect balance between being informative and engaging, while at just 1 hour in length, it was ideal and inspiring to listen to driving in before work.

    It goes into great detail on topics like controlling negative influences, how to influence lives both personally and professionally, while the section on willpower is truly fascinating. The tips that the author gives are so simple but they make so much sense when you hear why and how they can help you.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Self Discipline?

    The chapter on willpower is very interesting. It offers information, advice and examples of how you can increase your willpower and I found it to be very enlightening.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favourite?

    There were no characters in the book, but I thought the narrator does a really great job of engaging the listener and putting emphasis on many of the key points that are included.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in gaining more influence on there lives. I listened to this and immediately I saw instances in my life in which I saw opportunities to utilize some of the tips given in the book.

    I have listened two books... it comes second

    Joshua Mackey has like a trustable voice that compels you to listen to the book to the end


    What about Joshua Mackey’s performance did you like?

    This guy is a keeper. That voice is straight salesmanship


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    i dunno. to me the book is always better


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is the perfect size for a modern motivational book. Ace covers only the essential stuff without fillers. Joshua Mackey with his "you-can-do-it" voice killed it.

    However, i disagree with some of the opinions here but i guess we are all essentric to our individual opinions
