No Excuses! Summary

About No Excuses! Book

You don’t need to have been born under a lucky star, or with incredible wealth, or with terrific contacts and connections, or even special skills...but what you do need to succeed in any of your life goals is self-discipline. Unfortunately, most people give in to the two worst enemies of success: they take the path of least resistance (in other words, they’re lazy) and/or they want immediate gratification: they don’t consider the long-term consequences of the actions they take today.

No Excuses! shows you how you can achieve success in all three major areas of your life:

1. Your personal goals.
2. Your business and money goals.
3. Your overall happiness.

Each of the 21 chapters in this book shows you how to be more disciplined in one aspect of your life, with end-of-chapter exercises to help you apply the “no excuses” approach to your own life. With these guidelines, you can learn how to be more successful in everything you do—instead of wistfully envying others who you think are just “luckier” than you. A little self-discipline goes a long way...so stop making excuses and read this book!

Self-Discipline and Personal Success

Self-Discipline and Personal Success

According to Aristotle, the ultimate aim of human life is to be happy. The biggest thing that holds most people back from pursuing their dreams and being happy is a lack of self-discipline. If you cultivate self-discipline, set clear goals, and begin doing the things you already know you should be doing, nothing will keep you from achieving success.

Remember, success isn’t an accident—you need to have the discipline to work hard at it.

And only with self-discipline will you have the drive to persist through the hardest obstacles in your path to success.

Self-Discipline in Business

Most, if not all, of us tend to get distracted in our day-to-day lives and stray further and further from completing our most important tasks, those that will help us achieve success. However, if we learn to set clear priorities and work on the tasks that bring us the most value, as well as cultivate the discipline to complete these tasks quickly and well, we will be on the path to success.

Furthermore, these abilities will help us consolidate ourselves as leaders instead of followers, which is an invaluable trait. Leaders are truly the ones who achieve their goals.

Part 3: Self-Discipline and the Good Life

Part 3: Self-Discipline and the Good Life

In all religions and philosophies the highest human good or idea has been peace of mind.

Material things aren’t the only measure of success, in fact, achieving happiness is the true measure of success. The desire to be happy is the one thing that drives all humans forward in life, and self-discipline is of utmost importance in achieving that. After all, you will only be happy and content when you are in control of your life. The thing about happiness is that it is simply a by-product of engaging in activities you enjoy with people you like and respect.

Brian Tracy sheds light on how procrastination feeds off of excuses, blames but ultimately, goals and dreams.

The Best Time To Act Was Yesterday

The Best Time To Act Was Yesterday

A most potent weapon against procrastination is a Disciplined mindset; Doing what you are supposed to do, when you don't want to do it.

It is vital to understand the frailty of limited time at our disposal if we must achieve the best version of ourselves!

Price Of Success

Price Of Success

“There are only three requirements for success. First, decide exactly what it is you want in life. Second, determine the price that you are going to have to pay to get the things you want. And third, and this is most important, resolve to pay that price.”

One of the most important requirements for success, once you have decided what it is that you

want, is the quality of willingness. Successful people are willing to pay the price, whatever it is and for as long as it takes, until they achieve the results they desire.

The price of success: It must always be paid in full—and in

advance.
