With the integration of Apple Car Play into most cars that are coming onto the market, it is only inevitable that podcasts become the new form of radio. Personally, podcasts are my favorite way to consume content to grow my business but between podcasts and audiobooks, entrepreneurs have an ever increasing selection of valuable audio content to choose from…

As a true supporter of self-help books since I was a child, “No Excuses! The Power of Self-Discipline” had me spell-bound and Tracy’s own words “learn what you need to know and do what you need to do, and never give up” truly resonates with me. We are so easy to find excuses and not resolutions. We look and find the quick solutions to get what we want quickly. With self-discipline, we will stick to what we want, and not try to do things quickly and get it over with. It becomes a way of living, not a quick fix.
I also like the idea of “voting yourself off the island of no discipline”. By doing that you surround yourself with people who believe like you and who want to stay with, shall we say “with the program?” In my own experience, I can guarantee you that the quickest way to fail in life is to surround yourself with toxic people. I personally don’t like the use of words like “winners” and “losers” in life to describe people. I truly prefer the term “like – minded” people. He emphasises how important it is to surround yourself with like – minded people and I completely agree with that.
Brian Tracy also says that, “without self-discipline nothing works. With self-discipline everything works”. “You will rise above yourself”. The truth is that most people do what is fun and easy rather than doing what is hard and necessary and this is the main difference between winners and losers. Self -discipline is also known as self-control, and I am sure that you will agree that this is a subject that is as much written about as can be. I suppose the reason why people still become millionaires by writing about this is because we lack self-control and cannot stick to things that take effort. Read this book, and make it part of your life. Then you will succeed, I guarantee you that.
What you will find in this book is how to incorporate self – discipline in 21 easy to read and follow chapters. These chapters are presented in three parts to complete the book.
In the first part, you learn about self-discipline and personal success. It is about courage, persistence, goals and how to master these with self – discipline. In the second part, you read and learn how to apply self-discipline in your sales, business and finances. In the third part, you read about the quality of life and how to apply self-discipline for ultimate success in fitness, health, and marriage.
With each chapter, you will find a number of exercises to guide you in the right direction. These exercises are really helpful and Tracy truly helps you find the areas in your life that need the most work for ultimate success. If you partake in all the exercises, you will definitely change your life positively.
All of Brian Tracy’s books are excellent and worth reading and I will definitely put this in the top three. He explores self-discipline and the best way to use this, and many aspects of life to ensure that you get where you want to be and stay there.
Most people think success comes from good luck or enormous talent, but many successful people achieve their accomplishments in a simpler way: through self-discipline. No Excuses! shows you how you can achieve success in all three major areas of your life, including your personal goals, business and money goals, and overall happiness. More info →
