Publisher's Summary

Most people think success comes from good luck or enormous talent, but many successful people achieve their accomplishments in a simpler way: through self-discipline. Brian Tracy knows this firsthand. He didn’t graduate from high school, and after working for a few years as a laborer, he realized he had limited skills and a limited future. But through the power of self-discipline, he changed his life, achieving success in sales and marketing, investing, real-estate development, and management consulting. He has consulted to more than 1,000 companies, given motivational speeches and seminars to more than four million people in 40 countries, and written 45 books.

No Excuses! shows you how you can achieve success in all three major areas of your life:

  • Your personal goals: self-discipline can help you realize that you are responsible for your success and shows you how persistence really does pay off.
  • Your business and money goals: self-discipline can make you a better leader and a better manager, help you close more sales and make more money, improve your time-management and problem- solving abilities, and make you more effective and successful at work.
  • Your overall happiness: self-discipline can help you be happier, healthier, and more physically fit, and it can help you in your marriage and your relationships with your children and friends.

Each of the 21 chapters in this audiobook shows you how to be more disciplined in one aspect of your life, with end- of-chapter exercises to help you apply the “no excuses” approach to your own life. With these guidelines, you can learn how to be more successful in everything you do—instead of wistfully envying others who you think are just “luckier” than you. A little self-discipline goes a long way...so stop making excuses and listen to this audiobook!

There are really no excuses why your not where you

I read this book years ago and then it hit home with what I learned in the Marines. Hard work does pay off in the end. Waiting for someone else to get you moving toward the goal you want to reach is a sure path to failure. Today our political leaders talk about how we don’t start and run a business, that is a team effort. That is true once the business is started. I’ve started and closed three companies. If I had waited on other help I would never have started them. If I had waited on others I wouldn’t have closed them. Each failed for their own reason. If I had listened to others I would have kept the last one open even though it was bleeding money. You can’t spend more than you take in unless you’re the government. Here I was reminded that I’m exactly where I am because of all my past thoughts, actions and beliefs. Without having read this book I’ve begun once more to change my thinking. I re-read this book because its a good source of information and a swift kick when needed. I recommend it to everyone who is or isn’t running a business.

for excuses.

Good listen for teens'

What did you love best about No Excuses!?

I didn't love this book but I do enjoy Brian Tracy. His narration is without any passion. It sounds like he has said these same pointers over and over for so long that even he is board with it all. I didn't learn anything new but that is because I have been a student of self help all my life. This is a good listen for younger people just trying to get their independent footing.

Fantastic, unique perspective on discipline

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. Brian Tracy does a fantastic job of showing his readers why having and exerting discipline is so important.

What did you like best about this story?

Brian Tracy addresses the need for discipline in every aspect of your life - business, finances, personal life, relationships and raising kids. He not only shows you why having discipline in these categories is so important - he shows you step by step what actions need to be taken to achieve that discipline. This is truly an eye opening, engaging book that can be used by anyone, at any stage in their life. He also touches on the Law of Attraction, though I don't believe he directly refers to it as such.

Have you listened to any of Brian Tracy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

His performance was excellent. The reading of the book was in a very natural, conversant tone that makes it clear that he is an excellent public speaker and presenter. His tone varies based on the content, and portrays a level of seriousness when he needs to drive a point home, and joviality when drawing the listener in. I would certainly listen to his audiobooks in the future.

Any additional comments?

Overall, this is a fantastic book for anyone who struggles with excuses and lack of self-discipline in their life. Tracy's approach is both no-nonsense and empathetic. He knows that it is not easy to change your behaviors - but he adamantly believes that you can make your life absolutely anything that you want it to be by applying his methods. You truly get the sense that he cares what becomes of your life, and wants the best for you. Listen to it.

Clear concise and potentially life changing

I have been a fan of Brian Tracy since reading Eat That Frog a few years ago. I found that my productivity increased dramatically and I became more organised and in control. Over time I slipped back into my old ways and got frustrated with myself. I decided to listen to No excuses to help get back on track and it has not disappointed. Brian explains how to be more organised and controlled but in a way that is easily digested and actionable. I recommend this book for business owners who want to increase productivity and quality of life.

Succint and to the point

This audio book isn't particularly long (in comparison to other books of this genre I've listened to) but every chapter is clear enough to really hit the point home.

Examples are used to back up every point and this makes it an easy book to understand. At the end of every chapter you are given a summary of the key points for that chapter and various techniques are offered for you to implement immediately to improve your life.

I've listened to it twice back to back so far and will listen to it again many more times as the messages in this book could be of use to any human being.

Excellent book

Mostly it's interesting and very informative but
a bit dragged in the middle.
I love last few chapters.
It is for everyone from business man to house wife.
I am a housewife or stay at home mum and I found useful information.
I will definitely listen to it again.
