Summary

"With self-discipline, all things are possible. Without it, even the simplest goal can seem like the impossible dream." (Theodore Roosevelt)

Imagine how different your life would be if you knew a way to hack your daily habits to become a highly self-disciplined and productive person.

This audiobook contains proven steps and strategies on how to start leading a more successful life through improving self-discipline and confidence.

In the modern day in which we live, we all want to be successful. Either we are working jobs that we don’t enjoy or we are wishing we would move on and better ourselves, or we need to lose weight, or achieve this, that, or the next thing.

In this audiobook you'll learn:

  • Productivity and discipline hacks
  • How to gain the upper hand
  • What you lose to your lack of self-discipline
  • So much more!

If you are suffering from not having self-control in your life, then you know what it is like to continually be disappointed with yourself. When you don't feel you have control over your decisions, your self-confidence also struggles. Also, each time you give in and lose willpower and make the wrong decision, you lose a little bit of yourself. After all, if a friend told you over and over again that he or she would do something but over and over again they didn't follow through with it, chances are you would stop believing them. This also applies to you every time you don't follow through with a decision or choice you tell yourself - you can't be trusted to reach your outcome! Obviously, this is not what we want.

So, if you are ready to go all-in with proven strategies for self-discipline, then you will not want to miss out on listening to this audiobook.

One of the things that could help you ultimately develop your self-discipline is to know that you can get something great out of it. Realizing its benefits before you begin in your journey is a good motivational factor that will help you stick to what you have started.

A Whole-hearted 5 stars from me!

This is a powerful work that is both inspiring and uncomfortable to read. It is uncomfortable, if you are really thinking about it, because it presents a brutally honest level of self examination and uncompromising standard for self improvement. Paradoxically sufficient exposure also, in my case, had a calming effect in that it feels embarrassing, even comedic, to get so worked up about stuff

starsEasy to Follow and Great Results!!!

I really liked reading this book and couldn't put it aside before finishing it. It is an easy read, packed with useful and concise information. As I read through pages, I really felt motivated to start doing what I really wanted to do and ended up with a sturdy plan in mind. Some concepts are briefly explained without going much into detail but that's okay for the context of the book and can be further researched from other resources.

Incredibly Written .................

Straightforward advice in a well written and easy to understand style. Key points are listed at the end of each chapter, which makes it easy to go back and review. I've started to incorporate the key messages into my life and it's really been helpful in building up a daily exercise and meditation habit When reading this book it's content will cause you to see yourself and reflect not only what you may have been doing incorrectly but also how to make changes toward more positive personal attitudes Ray Grant Edwin 's book "Self-Discipline" is a is informative guide. Self-discipline goes by many names—self-control, sense of self-worth, and self-drive. They all point to the same fact: this person is in charge of themselves and knows how to utilize their inner strengths to get what they want out of life. Many people wonder why self-discipline is so important. They wonder why they cannot just go on as they have been going on all this time, whirling around in their merry little unorganized lives.

This is an excellent companion to his diet book

This is a terrific resource for entrepreneurs touching on something often overlooked in other books for those starting and running their own business - the master key to success - self-discipline. The author covers concepts and principles regarding self-discipline that are invaluable and may not have been learned even by those who have listen many other books on this topic.

It helped me a lot !!!!!!!!!!!!

True concepts warriors applied how to win battles. this piece is also applicable to one's self, don't get the impression that this is only for soldiers. When you are motivated to achieve something, anything that could win you in struggling with life. One is venturing into a business- this will surely serve as an eye-opener for you. Practical tips enclosed for your daily routines that can help you improve. I like the book because it is short without useless text. I'd give this book 6 stars if I could. I highly recommend it to anyone who'd like to strengthen their resolve and get a bit more self-discipline in their lives. I've always been a goal setter, but my problem is that I'll switch gears half way towards accomplishing whatever goal I had set-- thereby not really accomplishing much at all.

Good motivation for me.

If you’re looking for the latest cutting-edge 6-step formula on how to reprogram your mind for success, and how to easily overcome laziness and procrastination – then do not buy this book. You’ll want to look elsewhere, as you won’t find it here. As someone who never followed or listened to Grant Edwin before and merely happened upon this book in a store, I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It's perfect parts motivational and informative.

Simple Approach that Works Wonders

I love the fact that this book is broken into daily readings. I start each day reading a daily passage from this book. A lot of what's in this book really resonates with me and helps to give me a new or different perspective on forming self-discipline. I learned about this book from a friend who, in my opinion, is self-disciplined. In this short but very useful book,Grant Edwin gives us the keys to the kingdom. Well not exactly the kingdom but to a good life filled with all the things we want. The key is discipline and the key to discipline is habit. Habits as Grant Edwin lays out clearly and simply are the daily things we can do to nudge us along and keep us in line with our North Star (the long term picture). His approach will help even the most undisciplined find a simple way to keep on track for the long hall.

Accessible, Practical, Usable

This book although short is packed with tremendous value. I like reading the author's books because they are straight to the point and practical. In this book he writes about writing, which he is qualified to write about because he's a best-selling author and have written multiple books.

great book for Self Discipline.

Self-Discipline can be a tricky thing. For both my clients and me, it’s often the thing we fight against the most but when we have it in any aspect of our life, we are the happiest. This book not only explained this phenomenen but gave some simple yet powerful insight into how change is possible. As elusive as self-discipline can be, I felt for the first time it’s doable.

best parent guide

I found this book so helpful that I purchased it for all the mothers in my playgroup. In helping parents to be kind but firm, assertive but not aggressive, compassionate but not permissive, Jane Nelson inspired me to be the parent I want to be. She helped me look to the root of my children's misbehavior and address what was causing my child to be unhappy rather than trying to just address the behavior.

This book is changing my life little by little

Quick listen and great tips. The narrator could be slightly less dry on the audio tape but overall the book has important pointers. Every thing from cold exposure to intermittent fasting... This book says something slightly different from other self help books.

Great purchase, highly recommend!

This is a short but to the point book on self-discipline fundamentals and strategies. After focusing on the four building blocks of self-discipline, the book goes through several strategies to improve self-discipline in order to achieve personal or professional goals All chapters are clear and provide ideas that can be put to practice.
