Do you ride the escalator or do you take the stairs? No matter how you define success, it always requires one thing: self-discipline. But as popular speaker and strategist Rory Vaden explains, we live in an "escalator world", one that's filled with shortcuts, quick fixes, and distractions that make it all too easy to slide into procrastination, compromise, and mediocrity. What seems like an easier path is really much harder in the end - and, most important, it won't take you where you want to go.
How do successful people stay focused and achieve results? This lively and insightful guide presents a simple program for taking the stairs - that is, for overcoming the temptations of quick fixes and procrastination, conquering creative avoidance, and transcending personal setbacks in order to tackle the work that leads to real success. Whatever your goals are, Rory Vaden's proven approach will get you there - one stair at a time.

Great book. Rory is a no-nonsense guy and he covers a lot in this book - if you have already read a bunch of motivational books and find most of them shallow and repetitive, regurgitating the same anecdotes and smart catchphrases, here is someone fresh, original, with substance that will help you become a better person. Would recommend him any day over the well known motivational "gurus" who speak a lot but say little. Cory is the real deal.
One of the best.
Awesome book. Helped me in a number of ways. I haven't been to the gym in 4+ years and I started going again this week. Got a good schedule going. I'm way more conscious of the 100s of little choices I make about things every day.
I also noticed this book referenced a number of other books, so I started checking those out as well. I like Secrets of the Millionaire mind.
Rory Vaden did a great job with this book. I've selected several clips of the audio tape and played during staff meetings. awesome book across the board.
Really brilliant ideas and information to uplifting messages. All about this book; actions. I really love it. Cool. God bless him.
I will read this book again and buy multiple hard copies to share with friends, family and students. I consider this a "must read."
Clear understandable delivery of valuable principles that create true change for a successful business and a successful life. Well worth the time.
This is a great book for personal development! Great Motivation! I'm listening to the audible for the second time!
This was just as good if not better than the second book. I was well written with many examples that related to me.
loved it. good principles and eye opening. easy to listen to. you need to get this book if you struggle with your time.
