Publisher's Summary

You think your lack of willpower is why you always fail.

You think it’s why you can’t lose weight, or succeed as an entrepreneur, and why you procrastinate and waste your day. You think if only you had willpower like other people, life would be different. Everything would change.

But you are wrong.

Will isn’t something you have or don’t. It’s not genetic or gifted to you. It has to be developed. Strengthened like a muscle, built like an athlete from amateur to pro. It’s not about having the “right stuff.” This is about training.

Self-discipline.

Self-discipline is a workout of the mind that forges a new you. Over time you build habits, gain discipline. Your will begins to grow. You go from weak to strong. Things that once were hard become much easier for you. 

When you were a child you had to learn to balance, how to stand. At first it seemed impossible. You fell so many times. But you practiced every day. You got better. Soon your feet carried you. You walked, you ran, and you jumped. Eventually, your legs and body worked in perfect unison. To stand was nothing. To balance was automatic.

You became disciplined.

You built habits out of processes that were once so hard for you. In time, and with training, surmounting the impossible became your natural response. But somewhere along the way you forgot what that was like. You forgot the hard work and effort. You forgot how many times you fell. You forgot that you couldn’t always control your muscle, and you forgot about the long hours it took to build a skill into habit. But I will remind you.

Listen and you'll learn to:

  • Rediscover what it means to have self-discipline and the secrets to build it.
  • Train yourself to go from practically non-existent willpower to the will of a Navy Seal.
  • Build habits of enduring the hard parts until success becomes the only response.
  • Amass an inner sense of fortitude that kicks down walls that try to limit you.
  • Finally remember how it feels to achieve your desires in everything you do.

If that sounds like the transformation you need in your life, then listen to The Cure to Laziness right now!

Well done

So far this book is awesome. It jumps right into suggestions to help you. Not focusing on how and why it happened.

Terrible delivery.

Terrible delivery. Unatural pauses make it difficult to follow. The content is good but it would be much easier to follow with the written version. I would not recommend the audible version.

Useful concepts

Overall this was a very motivational book. The trouble is because of listening to it rather than reading, takes away the chance to mark pages or take notes! The narrator is very clear but occasionally goes into a bit of a monotone for long sentences with funny emphasis on some words and it makes it a bit hard to follow.
I’ll be listening to this more times to let the concepts sink in more, but I definitely recommend for content!

Just another way to procrastinate.

I'm a self-help junkie and still found several nuggets of wisdom within the pages. Best of all, it is concise and to the point so listening it didn't become just another way to procrastinate

The lesson that jumped out at me.

The lesson that jumped out at me, was the fact that once you start something that you have been putting off, it is not as bad as you thought it would be. Do not let any concern, fear, worry or another excuse of doing something, prevent you from starting and then finishing it.

Thanks, the author.

The author of this book had the problem of procrastination himself and the book is about what he learned in ridding himself of the habit. He has really good tips. At the end of the book, he presents a download of putting his tips into action. He sent also two emails w/ more tips. This was a very helpful book and a good purchase. Thanks, the author.
