No Excuses — The Power of Self Discipline Summary
If people put as much energy into achieving their goals as they spend making up excuses for failure, they would actually surprise themselves. But first, you have to vote yourself off the island.
Great Quotes From the Author
‘Self-discipline is the ability to do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.’”
 
The two biggest enemies of success, happiness and personal fulfillment, are first the Path of Least Resistance and, second, the Expediency Factor.
 
The Path of Least Resistance Is what causes people to take the easy way in almost every situation. They seek shortcuts to everything.
The Expediency Factor
 In other words, most people do what is expedient, what is fun and easy rather than what is necessary for success. 
Take Control of Yourself
Success is possible only when you can master your own emotions, appetites, and inclinations.
 
Self-discipline can also be defined as self-control. Your ability to control yourself and your actions, control what you say and do.
Think Long Term
The most successful people are long-term thinkers. They look into the future as far as they can to determine the kind of people they want to become and the goals they want to achieve.
 
Author says Successful people make sure that everything they do in the short term is consistent with where they want to end up in the long term.
The Habit of Self-Discipline
Bad habits are easy to form, but hard to live with. Good habits are hard to form, but easy to live with.
 
“Everything is hard before it’s easy.”
The Big Payoff
“Self-discipline is the master key to riches.”
 
The ability to practice self-discipline is the real reason why some people are more successful and happy than others.

Hard Work Is the Key

Lasting success is possible only when you can discipline yourself to work hard for a long, long time.
 
The indispensable requirement for hard work is self-discipline.
The Secrets of Success 
One of the most important requirements for success, once you have decided what it is that you want, is the quality of willingness.
 
Author Says Everyone wants to be successful. Everyone wants to be healthy, happy, thin, and rich. But most people are not willing to pay the price.
Pay the Price
There is an interesting point about the price of success: It must always be paid in full—and in advance.
 
“The elevator to success is out of order, but the stairs are always open.”
 
Become All You Can Be 
 
Author Says “to achieve something that you have never achieved before, you must learn and practice qualities and skills that you have never had before.” 
 
Author Says “to become someone that you have never been before, you must do something that you have never done before.”
Self-Discipline and Goals
 
“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”
 
Author Says Your ability to discipline yourself to set clear goals for yourself and then to work toward them every day will do more to guarantee your success than any other single factor.
The Discipline of Writing
The act of writing forces you to think and concentrate. It forces you to choose what is more important to you and your future. As a result, when you write down a goal, you impress it into your subconscious mind.
Be the Best!
Author Says The greatest payoff is that every time you learn and apply something new.
 
Every time you learn and apply something new, you will have a greater sense of personal power.
Persistence
Author Says Persistence is self-discipline in action. Your ability to persist in the face of all setbacks and temporary failures is essential to success in life.
 
“Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel.”
Walk the Talk
When you become a leader, you must discipline yourself to be “leaderlike.” You must walk, talk, and act the part of a leader.
You Must Be Better
Author Says When you start a business or a new venture within a business, you require the discipline to do your homework thoroughly, in advance.
 
The discipline of advanced planning can spell the difference between success and failure.
Self-Discipline and Happiness
Author Says Your ability to achieve your own happiness is the true measure of your success in life.
 
Author Says You can only truly be happy when you practice self-discipline, self-mastery, and self-control.
The Law of Control
Author Says You have an internal locus of control when you feel that you are in charge, you make your own decisions, and what happens to you in life is largely determined by yourself.
 
The key to replacing an external locus of control with an internal locus of control is for you to decide today to take complete charge of your life.
The Reason for Happiness
“Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.”
 
Author Says When your income and your life are consistent with your goals and expectations and you are content with your situation, you feel happy.
Get Started First Thing
Here Author Says People who get up each morning and exercise for thirty to sixty minutes are much more likely to make exercise a permanent part of their daily routine.
Trick Yourself
Author Says Whenever people come back from a morning run or any other form of morning exercise, they are always happy and smiling.
Increase Your Intelligence
Author Says People who engage in aerobic exercise first thing in the morning have been shown to be brighter, more creative, and more intelligent throughout the day.
 
Author Says This makes you wide-awake and alert from first thing in the morning and then for several hours afterward.
The Disciplines of Listening
Author Says  The first discipline is to listen attentively , without interrupting. Listen as though the other person is about to reveal a great secret or the winning lottery number and you will hear it only once. 
Self-Discipline and Friendship
 
Author Says We learn who we are and know about ourselves only through interacting with other people.
Our destinies are determined by our interactions with others and theirs with us.
