Publisher's Summary

Self-control affects almost every aspect of a happy and healthy life: exercising, eating right, avoiding alcohol and drugs, working harder, studying more, and spending less. Self-control or willpower is something that separates humans from our ancient ancestors as well as from the rest of the animal kingdom. Instead of responding to our immediate impulses, humans can evaluate, have the ability to plan, and can avoid doing things they will regret in the future. 

There are times when people lose their self-control, which makes things more complicated. Gaining self-control is a crucial ingredient for success in any field or facet of life in which we are involved. Willpower can mean the difference between creating a good impression and creating a really terrible one. It can also greatly change your life and the lives of others.

Self-control is not about having control over the things you want to do; it's also about having enough control over the things that come into your mind. Everything really begins within your mind, so if you are able to control your mind, you will also be more successful in achieving self-control.

People must also learn to choose their thoughts, just as they choose the clothes they will wear every day. Thought control is an essential component of a successful self-control effort. It is a great power that you can always cultivate. If you really want to control the things in your life that aren't so good, you have to work on your mind; that's all you have to try to control.

Learn to master your life and your mind today! Take control!

I think this is a reliable audible for us

This audiobook made me take a very long look at myself in order to realize the things that I should and should not do with myself if I want to improve.

What a surprise! So short but so useful!

This book is short. It is true.
But the lessons in this book are life changing. Even if common sense gives us some clues, science is always better.
This time science provides us with secrets for a better life for ourselves and our family.
This audio deserves your attention.

Set my mind free

For anyone who questions their belief system, this book is a "must read".
For me personally, it freed my brain from the cult indoctrination that I have suffered for over 30 years of my life.
Reading performance is a lot like the conversation you may already have in your head when reading this book.

Unlistenable

The voice was so hsrd to follow, I am allways wuite well focusing on what I am listening but this one was so terrible to focus on mainly because of the readers intonations and jumpy reading style. sounds like crappy commercial of 30minutes.
