Summary

Do you have dreams and ambitions that you cannot achieve because your lazy side takes the better of you? Are you falling for your temptations?

A lot of times, our temptations take the better of us. We have goals and ambitions and we have work to do, but we just keep wasting hours at doing things of no use. We look at other people's bodies, physiques, and successes and we get jealous of them.

You know that you are capable of doing similar or better things but you are just not doing it. Every time you try, you fail only because you don't stick to the plan and give up on it easily. You don’t lack motivation or ideas; you lack discipline.

Train yourself to the top!

It’s time you stop whining and start achieving. Through this audiobook you will:

  • Become efficient
  • Be more productive
  • Create a productive mind-set
  • Learn to live healthily
  • Climb the ladders of success
  • Build confidence and self-esteem

Start building yourself now!

Don’t put it off for another second. While you wait, someone is already training to be better!

Get this audiobook now and be the best version of you.

Robotic

Sounds like a robot reading. Tried to stick with it but just so monotone and robotic. Just couldnt bring myself to continue listening. A book such as this you need upbeat and positive vibes, felt completely the opposite.

Interesting.

This book covered it all on the subject of self-discipline. A very good book to refer back to. Read a couple of other books on the subject but this one is tops.

Dreary, monotonous voice

I usually listen to audio books whilst driving my commute to and from work, but this is dreadful.
The narration is monotonous, robotic even, meaning that I barely notice what he's saying half the time. It's been a 45-minute drive this morning, and I honestly couldn't tell you what he's been talking about - he sounds like the kind of person everyone tries to avoid at parties!
I also found that a lot of punctuation was skipped because of the lack of intonation, meaning several phrases or sentences simply didn't make sense.
Avoid!

The tips are very realistic and worth trying out.

I really, REALLY recommend this book if you have self-discipline issues. It explains better ways to deal with urges, procrastination, and how to get working on things you want to do. For the price, it's a complete steal.

Awful robotic narrator

Couldn’t listen to this book as the narration was absolutely terrible. Such a shame. Not sure why they chose this type of voice/tone to read this??? Very odd.

Surprisingly, it was ok

When I first started listening, I thought ‘I can’t listen to this as the narrator voice is awful’

But I stuck with it and and had a few light bulb moments and by the end, enjoyed his voice. Worth a listen in my opinion

Poor narrating

I haven't been able to actually fully finish this book, due to such poor narrating. The guy sounds like a robot so much I couldn't focus on the words.

Very concise

Very concise book, I love that. It's just what I needed. It teaches you several strategies and talks about many potential pitfalls but focuses on the most effective way to be successful—to develop your self-discipline.

Excellent read, I thoroughly enjoyed learning all that this book has to offer, the realization that motivation is not the key to progress but building momentum and self-discipline is how you will make progress and get ultimate success. I loved it

Good listen.

Thr author reiterates several points that makes the reader realize taking action is the only way forward. Each chapter ends with a summary which is useful. Yhr narrators voice took some timr getting used to, but is much better than other voices i've listened to. This book is a good starter for those who just are lost and dont know which step to take next.
