Publisher's Summary

If you would like to build iron-like willpower and unshakable self-discipline...and do it even if you are (currently) lazy, undisciplined, and couldn’t motivate yourself out of a paper bag...then this audiobook will show you how.

You might think that successful people are simply "lucky" or backed by a rich family, but that’s certainly not the case most of the time. Success comes to those who are disciplined and mentally tough; people who can withstand any challenge that comes their way.

Learning self-discipline is necessary to effectively organize your time and energy and to use it wisely to motivate yourself and successfully achieve all your goals and dreams.

Do you want more:

  • Self-discipline?
  • Confidence?
  • Self-awareness?
  • Achievement?

Many people question the value of self-discipline. For some, developing self-discipline is a pointless endeavor. Why control yourself from doing what you want when it can only make you sad? The truth is, self-discipline is not just all about control, nor is it a form of self-deprivation; rather, it is about working your way toward success. You may not see it as you take your journey, but it will soon reveal itself when you reach your goal.

One of the things that could help you ultimately develop your self-discipline is to know 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.

This audiobook is a complete guide to maintaining your composure and self-discipline at all possible scenarios and will let you achieve great success with the help of these habits.

Hilariously awful.

Gave up on this joke of a book somewhere between the laughably naïve hypothetical about how an alcoholic self-disciplined himself into only being half an alcoholic a year later, and the verbatim sentence that we are the least disciplined generation in history, from infancy, except Asians and Africans. Also, what the fuck does that subtitle even mean?

Straight to the Point

Writing books can be both rewarding and challenging. It can be a joyful activity with the benefit of providing significant passive income. This book is a valuable resource for providing discipline in important areas relating to starting, working on and completing writing projects. It is highly recommended.

I never knew Self-Discipline can be learnt

The ideas in the book helped me resist temptation, control impulses, avoid distraction, end procrastination, change habits, and control my attention, emotions, and desires, in any area of life. Usually, I read a book, highlight what I think makes sense and move on without incorporating what I just noted. The thing is that I become to understand human nature more deeply thanks to this book.

A fantastic book

I love this book. Plan on getting it for a family member too. I’ve defined my why and am starting to implement some these great ideas. I can say that it's a good psychological book, which helps to motivate and to stay active, enjoy the life and realize veritable parts of a plastic human brain. With the help of this book also easy to help and understand the main concepts of self-discipline both for children, teenagers, and adults. Enjoy having this book.

Packed with good info

Good starter book or refresher course in self-motivation. I would not do some of the things he does (like cold showers or extremely long fasts) but, as he says, these are only suggestions which he encourages you to create your own incentives. Overall, good book, with lots of references for deeper research. Very important to find a book, where will be included short but needed information in the way that it will be very effective. I like this book for it's right information and tips of using it.

Awful! Avoid until this re-narrated

Let’s face it... these kind of things are never easy listens. In this case the monotone American drawl makes absolutely a waste of time. Reads like an endless list of things I must do. Avoid!

Self-Discipline is Achievable

The Self-Discipline Blueprint I feel that I have found that one system to help me to develop and sustain the habits I desire. I found Patrick's concise writing style as well as the incorporation of considerable research references very appealing. I followed the instructions and read the book first before using the workbook and I am glad I did.

Excellent Book

I read a lot of self-help books for both myself personally and for my business. 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. Finished in one sitting. Had to stop highlighting because I was highlighting virtually every sentence. A Practical guide to behavior change. I'll be checking out all his other books.

Very good book; it motivated me to go to the !!!!

Let me tell you a story. I've been an entrepreneur wannabe for twenty-five years. I've started seven businesses, but none have ever worked out. That is SO disappointing to me. After listen Shawn Norman 's book, I'm beginning to really understand where I've been thinking wrong and how my discipline issues have constipated my progress. Identifying your problem is one thing, but Martin explains the science behind the principle then offers numerous action steps to solve every single issue and problem he discusses in his book.

Field Manual to Daily Success !!!!!!!!!!!

I loved that the information is readily available, its straight to the point well explained and easy to follow. This book was an easy read yet filled with so many great tips to start improving for the better NOW! loved it and will continue to reference it. Exactly what it says it is, a field manual. If I had to describe it I would call it the ultimate excuse killer. Shawn Norman instructs you how to navigate the mine field of excuses you'll encounter while you're getting after it, whatever "it" may be. From procrastination to injury, from why, where, when, to your own weakness.
