Publisher's Summary

Do you want more success?
The primitive mind finds excuses to not do things even to the point of creating excuses and false perceptions all in the effort to reduce the level of energy expended on an endeavor. This can hinder our endeavors to become successful and reach our goals. Learning The Importance of Doing It and how to utilize discipline can change everything!
This book addresses a number of peripheral issues before honing in on the core substance of discipline itself. It looks at the psychological perspective of discipline as well as the evolutionary perspective and makes the case for balanced discipline. It goes on to lay out the steps of crafting discipline into a habit and again, makes the case for it.
To really get discipline to work for you, you need to know three things. First, you need to know how to recognize it. Second, you need to know how to invoke it. And, third, you need to know what it's not. When you apply this knowledge consistently you start to recognize the benefits, the habits are reinforced and the positive consequences of discipline begin to manifest in your life.
Discipline, in its simplest form, conveys the measure of the effort required to act on a thought, a decision, or a plan. The verb here does not only mean to physically act, but it can also mean the effort to mentally act, where a person is required to cogitate on something that is not entirely pleasurable or easy to do.
Discipline is not native to our physiology; it is something we learn along the way. Discipline effectively takes the power to act, almost exclusively endowed to our impulses and subliminal thoughts, and transfers it to the logical, reasonable and measured section of our faculties.
We are driven by a large measure by our desires, we are constrained by our limitations, and we worry about that which causes fear. All these factors, if not placed in proper context, can disrupt us and make our living a tormented one.

Nothing New Here

I expected a great motivational read but ended up with a college science textbook. It was about as much fun to read as one too. The author uses the word Discipline" so many times in this book, I think she has a fetish for the word. Less than 2 hours on audible and the second half was all testimonials. Honestly, this book touches on absolutely nothing new that hasn't been explored in countless other books, and quite frankly, this book feels very half-assed. I will not be recommending it.

Could Have Would Have - Blah!!

I knew I've heard the narrators voice before, I pulled out my now outdated dash mounted GPS and there she was. Unless I actually breakdown and buy this book I will never get past the awful narration, I believe I could have had a better experience listening to this if Siri or Alexa had read the narration. If your looking for a turn by turn audio experience while attempting to digest the information contained within this audiobook, then this is for you..
