Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is all about the wonderful world of self-control and self-discipline.

Self-discipline is a wonderful thing. It can mean the difference between achieving goals and not achieving goals. It can give a person a greater sense of self-worth. It can allow someone the ability to work harder for a shorter amount of time and accomplish much more than before. Self-discipline can make the process of dropping bad habits in favor of good ones much easier to accomplish. People who have self-discipline are happier in life. They have a greater sense of purpose overall and a greater sense of accomplishment in everyday life. Seeking self-discipline is the best way to a better life.

Self-discipline is a goal that will only be accomplished by following a path that will cause a great deal of pain. Walking this path will require a good deal of hard work and dedication because this path is not an easy one to walk. Sometimes, people fall off. Sometimes, the direction of the path needs to be changed. Sometimes, the path needs to be broken up into smaller trips in order to be able to complete the whole journey.

Self-control and self-discipline require hard work and serious commitment. If a person is not really serious about the need to develop self-discipline, then it just will not happen. No one can give anyone else self-discipline. It needs to be learned within.

However, consider what happens if self-discipline is never developed. Can a person go on in life without ever developing any level of self-discipline? Of course they can. What they will be missing out on is a lifetime of achievement. They will be giving up all sense of self-worth and self-fulfillment. They will lose out on the ability to replace bad habits with good ones. They will never know the joy of getting rid of addictions and temptations. They will be forever plagued by negative feelings of anger and regret and guilt. They will live their entire lives accomplishing nothing because they lack the necessary self-discipline to accomplish anything. They will not succeed.

Of course, it is a purely personal choice. It is possible to live life without accomplishing anything. It is possible to just skate through life devoid of any sense of self-worth and self-love. It is possible to get to the end and never achieve any type of goal. However, what kind of life would that really be?

The best way is to begin today to work on personal goals. Start now by deciding which habits are bad and need to be replaced. Make a list of good habits that need to be cultivated. Decide when this new lifestyle will begin - keeping in mind that sooner is better. Write down all the goals that need to be achieved and all the good habits that need to be cultivated. Post this list where everyone can see it. Tell family and friends. Get everyone involved.

Most importantly, remember that a successful outcome will be its own best reward!

Loved this

I feel like half of this is common sense, and the other half gave me “ah ha” moments! It feels good hearing someone say those things, having someone tell me how to achieve my goals! I have instantly started using these exercises! Wonderful! I will listen over and over and over again to remind myself how important my goals are!

It was just ok

This is like someone explaining the difference between right and wrong, yes and no the advantages or going up rather than down. It was a little basic to me.

I even bought 3 more of the books by this author

I enjoyed the definition the author gives for words that the novices probably won't get it. Enjoyed the sites he would give just as welcoming those of us to get in touch with him on issues the peruser probably won't get it. Such a little book with so a lot of secured. I trust I could state the book is the best book I have ever perused regarding the matter of contributing. I don't prefer to peruse long books when this one covers something very similar in it's little size.
