Publisher's Summary

This mindset and these exercises will help you build everlasting self-discipline and unbeatable willpower.

Imagine that you have this rare kind of power that enables you to maintain iron resolve, crystal clarity, and everyday focus to gradually realize all of your dreams by consistently ticking one goal after another off your to-do list. Way too often, people and their minds don't really play in one team.

Wouldn't that be profoundly life-changing to utilize that power to make the best partners with your brain?

This rare kind of power is a mindset. The way you think, the way you perceive and handle both the world around you and your inner reality, will ultimately determine the quality of your life. A single shift in your perception can trigger meaningful results. Life can be tough. Whenever we turn, there are obstacles blocking our way. Some are caused by our environment and some by ourselves. Yet, we all know people who are able to overcome them consistently, and, simply speaking, become successful. And stay there! What really elevates a regular Joe or Jane to superhero status is the laser-sharp focus, perseverance, and the ability to keep on going when everyone else would have quit. I have, for a long time, studied the lives of the most disciplined people on this planet. In this book, you are going to learn their secrets. No matter if your goals are financial, sport, relationship, or habit-changing oriented, this book covers it all. Today, I want to share with you the science-based insights and field-tested methods that have helped me, my friends, and my clients change their lives and become real-life go-getters.

Answers questions and doubts about self discipline

Would you listen to Self-Discipline again? Why?

Yes, great book. Ian Tuhovsky nails every question I had on self discipline and is clear not to confuse "willpower" with self discipline. From other books I have read including this one, willpower is temporary and it is important to understand the difference. Ian goes into detail to answer questions such as how to use self discipline, and why. Also how to prevent burnout and meditate.

Any additional comments?

As a full time employee and part time grad student self discipline is a must have. I have used the concepts in this book to assure I am completing tasks for work as well as assuring I have time for family, prayer, and exercise. Sometimes failure does happen, but as Ian mentioned in his book to move forward and not dwell on the past.

An Excellent Self Help Book

I have listened to this book twice since I purchased it recently and enjoyed both times. I really like the fact that the book references to the Zen and Present moment awareness. Within the past 4-5 years I have started my journey in trying to discover the Zen way of living. While I am not an expert in knowing or even completely following the Zen way of living, it certainly impacts my attention and interest positively, every time I read or listen to a book that references it it. This is because I can confidently claim that my life and self discipline has been improved tremendously with as little as I know and practice the reality of life the Zen teaching has introduced me. Great Book Ian Tuhovsky. The world needs more folks like you.

Very Freeing

If you could sum up Self-Discipline in three words, what would they be?

Let's keep momentum!

What does Randy Streu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Randy Streu did a great job! His narration is top notch. He sounds so convincing that makes you want to listen!

Any additional comments?

We all make choices every day, why not make the right ones? It was very liberating to realize that even though motivation is a great key to success, the times when we don’t feel motivated, we can still make the right choice in order to accomplish our dreams. Let’s keep the momentum!

I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!

Interesting Concepts

I got this ARC via audiobook boom. The concepts and exercises presented in this volume were indeed interesting and most were doable. Some left me wondering who would do them and why. Overall they could help as long as one understands that there is room for improvement but we are not the ones totally in charge. We are indeed created beings who are a result of a higher power than ourselves.

You’re not alone

I initially downloaded this book due to going through a tough period in my life leading to losing interests in tasks and hobbies I once excelled in.

This book made my realise that I’m not alone in my experiences giving me great strength, knowledge and tips on how to overcome my struggles.

Really helpful

I found this book incredibly helpful in numerous ways; came across it at the right moment, when I’m having to cope with some unwelcome changes in my life - both in work and personal life. This book, together with various audiobooks by Jim Rohn, Jack Canfield and Brian Tracy have given me direction and confidence going forward. Try this out and see! If you don’t like it you can always return it, but I suspect you’ll find it invaluable and listen often. I’ve only given 3 stars for performance because it is read too fast, with no pauses between sentences, which makes some words difficult to catch; I therefore had to keep rewinding to hear again, which was a little annoying.

Inspiring approaches to becoming more determined

Listening to the book I began to think it was almost written for me. The situational examples resonated with my current position and hearing about the various approaches towards building a determined and motivated mindset has become part of my recovery process. To improve further I would like a 'further reading' list related to the approaches discussed in the book so I can explore them in more depth.

Very informative and pragmatic

This book provides mindsets that can help us pursue the things that we really want in our life, which is sometimes more than applying sheer forces in doing something to achieve the goal.
This book is certainly worth a read. It is amazing that how people can change their daily habits by simply applying technique in this book.
