Summary

Do you sometimes know you should do something, but you just cannot bring yourself to actually doing it? Do you find yourself procrastinating a lot and lack a lot of motivation even though you want to accomplish something? Would you like to stop wasting your precious time but are also a very rational, skeptical, and logical person who does primarily believe in logic and straight facts? 

If you answered "Yes" to at least one of the questions above, then this guide is specifically made to cater your needs. Most people have real trouble dealing with discomfort and delaying instant gratification, which often is too easy of a distraction. 

A common belief is that success comes from good luck or enormous talent. The truth is, many successful people achieve their accomplishments in a simpler way: through very strong self-discipline. 

The famous Stanford professor, accomplished researcher, and author Carol Dweck shows in her work how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. 

Her colleague Dr. Steve Bressert also was able to prove that strong self-discipline can be even more important than other traditional factors like IQ or good connections to achieve success. 

Therefore, the tools to finally cultivate your self-discipline and create long-lasting behavioral changes could be of tremendous value, no matter if it’s in business, private life, sports, or even the arts. 

In Self-Discipline Science & Daily Self-Discipline - 2 in 1, you’ll discover:

  • The 10 little-known universal traits to instantly kill your procrastination habit and achieve a huge improvement in willpower (even if you have struggled with it for years and believe it is a part of you!)
  • The four exact root causes of why you don’t currently have self-discipline so you can truly understand your starting point
  • Why this everyday self-discipline workout could transform your life forever
  • How these five life hacks help you to recognize distractions when they arise and how you can successfully avoid them
  • How the power to tolerate this one unknown emotion can play a major role in strengthening your newly found self-discipline
  • The biggest myths busted: Is there a biological basis for personality? Is laziness written in your DNA since birth?
  • Why these 17 common strategies are the most researched and promising to lead to success in your journey of increasing your self-discipline
  • The absolute worst three things you might be doing currently that could sabotage your whole self-discipline progress (avoid these mistakes at all costs if you want to finally increase your discipline dramatically!) 
  • And much, much more!

Grateful for the Book!!!

I've struggled all my life with undiagnosed ADHD. Everything is a struggle. The book provides strategies to creating a life by design and not by default! It starts with a shift in mindset and the willing to push through inertia. I'm looking forward to a better life.
