Publisher's Summary

If you want to make positive changes in your life and achieve your long-term goals, I can't think of a better way to do it than to learn how to become more self-disciplined.

Science has figured out a lot of interesting aspects of self-discipline and willpower, but most of this knowledge is buried deep inside long, boring scientific papers. If you'd like to benefit from these studies without actually reading them, this audiobook is for you. I've done the job for you and researched the most useful and viable scientific findings that will help you improve your self-discipline.

Here are just a few of things you will learn from this audiobook:

  1. What a bank robber with lemon juice on his face can teach you about self-control. This story will make you laugh out loud, but its implications will make you think twice about your ability to control your urges.
  2. How $50 chocolate bars can motivate you to keep going when faced with an overwhelming temptation to give in.
  3. Why President Obama wears only gray and blue suits, and what it has to do with self-control.
  4. Why the popular method of visualization can actually prevent you from reaching your goals and destroy your self-control (and what to do instead).
  5. What dopamine is and why it's crucial to understand its role if you want to break your bad habits and form good ones.
  6. Five practical ways to train yourself in self-discipline. Discover some of the most important techniques to increase your self-control and become better at resisting instant gratification.
  7. Why and when indulging yourself can actually help you build your self-discipline. Yes, you can stuff yourself (from time to time) and still lose weight.
  8. You too can master the art of self-discipline and learn how to resist temptations. Your long-term goals are worth it. Scroll up to buy the audiobook now.

    Story
    "Not worth a credit or any money."

    Unless you are an absolute beginner in self awareness, I would certainly not invest in this book. You can get way more info for free by browsing websites on internet. The author can be arrogant and pretentious at times. Additionally, I have a hard time taking seriously people that resolve to extreme behaviors to get things out of life.

    "16 hour fasting and icewater showers?"

    I am certain that the author is successful and that his message is well intended. However, he lost me at daily 16 hour fasting and icy cold showers. I just think that those extreme positions must be limited to a very small fraction of the worlds population. BMac.

    "The narration way was lazy, without emotion in it"

    I struggled to finish it, sleepy somehow, no emotions on it. The information was important that's why I finished the book.

    "clear, actionable and practical"

    As a person who struggles with temptation and impulses I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I can use and practice what's in it. I recommend repeated listening though to solidify what's gleaned. narration was clear and there were spots of humor I enjoyed and found refreshing. recommend you buy this one.

    "Great book!"

    One of the first books that should be read by this author. it explains so much about the role dopamine plays in willpower and finally dispels the myth that willpower is a finite resource.

    Story
    "Summary for Building Good Habits"

    The book is a summary of key points for building good habits and self-discipline. There are a lot of examples of eating healthy and losing weight as a lot of people can relate to that. Some tips are obvious, like replace candies with fruits or don't go shopping when you're hungry. There are also suggestions for small changes, like meditate for a minute or exercise for five minutes and build on that over time. The hardest part is getting started. If you can make it a habit to do something good, however small, it will get the momentum rolling to do more over time.

    "Does what it says on tin"
    What made the experience of listening to How to Build Self-Discipline the most enjoyable?

    The author starts by how he ventured into this and then talks about the techniques that he uses... I have tried a few of these and they worked well for me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Build Self-Discipline?

    Nil particular- I enjoyed the whole book however the memory comes from applying these techniques.. Reading alone wouldn't do...


    Which character – as performed by John Gagnepain – was your favourite?

    Not applicable
