Summary

Do you understand the connection between what you think and the success you experience or do not experience in your job or career? If you could learn to discipline your thoughts toward an attitude of success, do you believe it is possible you could in turn become successful? 

There is a well-known phrase that talks about the importance of working smarter. While there are many interpretations of what it can mean, overall, it is meant to emphasize the benefits of being focused, disciplined, and working hard. 

Hard work is the backbone of any career, but over time, and when routine work habits are established and set in, the effort that a person exerts may become conditionally based. It could be due to a person's perception of a "bad" boss, poor working conditions, not receiving a pay increase or recognition for their effort, and the list continues. 

While there may certainly be merit to these feelings, it serves no real purpose to make working hard a conditional characteristic of your job performance. 

Self-discipline is an innate habit which strengthens our progress and helps us build skills from small outer rewards. Rewarding improvements in self-discipline is achieved when you have willpower to continue building self-discipline and the ability to continue rewarding yourself. For example, when you do something positive for yourself, take time to give yourself a reward.

What you are going to learn:

  • The value of self-discipline
  • Reasons why you haven't achieved your goals 
  • Steps to cultivate self-discipline as a success mind-set 
  • Reasons why procrastination is your enemy 
  • Methods to having achievable objectives

If you want to be good at any career, it takes self-discipline to establish good work habits, push yourself to continually learn, get outside your comfort zone, and not be distracted from your goal. 

Almost anything that you can do to better yourself or to improve your life requires some self-discipline. It may be old-fashioned, it may be tough, but I believe that someone who has self-discipline is a long way down the road to success because they can achieve anything!

Don't understand all the 5 stars reviews :-/

They are deceiving. This is not that good, not even close. Maybe it has some new information for someone who never thought about self-discipline at all (very young adults maybe?), but even so, I don't think it would help that much. If you really have a lifelong problem with self-discipline, as I do, this book probably won't help. The ideas are not new nor explained in a new light, it will probably make you feel like already knew everything it says and ends up being a waste of time. There's no "blueprint" to be found in the sense that there's no plan or explanation of how it really works, just general ideas of how a self-disciplined life should look like, or a healthy life for that matter. Again, it might be ok for someone that needs to evaluate and focus on the very basics. I need something more advanced and scientific, I guess. It certainly has a self-help preachy vibe in the way it is written, which I don't appreciate, and it sounds kind of pretentious using very weird phrasal constructions (that don't really work), confusing wording and unexpected turns mid-phrase that don't make sense. More than once I found myself trying to end the phrase I was listening to, just to hear the narrator saying something completely different next. This would be gold if it ended up making sense and provoking more thought, but no, the narrator would just say something that sounded out of place, not really related to the proposition or idea presented before. This made me give up on the book before the end, it was not worth my time. I just heard the audiobook, didn't read the words on paper, so I can't say for sure how the performance of the narrator influenced my experience. To be honest, I did not find the performance particularly good, I found the intonation kind of random and sometimes just wrong, and it was very difficult for me to follow, but I feel like the fault might be more on the side of the material. In short, I found the content weak and the style of writing very weird.

I took in a great deal however the book would be progressively helpful without such a great amount of useless (to me) restorative phrasing.

Just what I needed

I am still listening the book. I find it very interesting and is a great book for beginners. It is easy to understand and has a lot of great information. I definitely recommend it for people who don't have time or don't like listening long books that goes off in the history instead of what you actually want to know.

A lady that changed my life

This book was recommended to me through a mutual friend of mine and Gemma’s as I was going through a very difficult time in my life. I did mastermind work with Gemma and she’s taught me so much. My life is very different now even after a few short months. I journal and read a lot more and have reached out to so many like minded people. I get that I can’t control everything now and how to deal with certain situations. I feel that I have more of a plan and know who I am and where I want to go. I can’t thank Gemma enough for her outlook on life and lessons she is teaching me. I will be forever grateful to her.

Facile to detect the direction and clear examples

The story of how Pixar has become successful. What it takes to be the best! Understanding the beginning of an idea can become great with time and new perspectives. Not to give up let go of the idea of failure.
