Learn why boundaries are not bad, why humility is hard, how to milk your momentum, how passion powers progress, why persistence is a virtue and patience is not optional. Learn how to be your own cheerleader, know your own creative cycle, and say so long to the Sunday night blues. Most importantly, learn how curiosity is the new vulnerability, and why, without it, self-discipline will never last. Do you struggle with finishing projects? Need to lose weight? Can’t get to bed at a reasonable hour? We all know we need more self-discipline, yet most of us are a bit foggy on what it actually is. Is it being on time to everything? Or early? Waking up at 5am? Doing everything everyone asks us to, on time, all the time? Or is it something more meaningful, more nourishing? This handbook will teach you how to take joy in cultivating self-discipline. Learn what it is, how to get it, why we need it, how to keep it, and why we want it. It also covers the major stumbling blocks in our way, both internally and externally. If you could use a boost of self-discipline along with a healthy dose of self-confidence, pick up this handbook today. You can’t afford not to.

I believe in synchronicity, that things come into our path at the right time. This book seems to be one of those instances. I consider myself a fairly disciplined person, but I sometimes hit unproductive periods that slow me down. This book sparked my inspiration, and I’m so thrilled to have found it! We all want to reach our full potential in all areas of our lives, but it is hard. We all need a little help and perspective, which is what this book offers. The author has walked the walk before she talked the talk (she tells her story in this book), so she comes across as highly credible. However, she speaks in the manner of a good friend or supportive coach rather than a drill sergeant. This book provides instructions for creating a directed, purpose-filled, meaningful life that is positive, nurturing, balanced, and effective. Through learning how to prioritize, we can get more of what we want out of our lives (achieving goals, having passion, gaining momentum, health, balance) and less of what we do not (burnout, unhealthy stress, ineffectiveness in all of its forms). The author talks a lot about “vital energy” and how it is a precious resource that we must use wisely. This message resonated with me because I tend to get distracted by people and things that usurp my energy, leaving me feeling less pep for what matters. The author gives numerous ways to harness our energy to achieve what is most important, and how to eliminate the nonessentials. The author did a lot of research to write this book, but the message comes across in a lively manner—something I don’t often see in books like these. As a result, I feel lighter and more inspired—mentally, physically, and spiritually. It reminded me that I can approach my goals with a spirit of fun, and that I am in control of every step of the journey.
