What's the secret of success?

Self-discipline, of course. At least that's what self-help guru Brian Tracy claims in "No Excuses! 21 Ways to Achieve Lasting Happiness and Success." Tracy's latest book describes how you can use self-discipline to become a successful, "superior" person in 21 areas of your life.

Yes, Tracy does occasionally use the rather Nietzschian language of "superior people" vs. "weak and irresolute people." But his advice throughout "No Excuses" is so sound, and the book is so readable, that Tracy may just convert you into a self-disciplinarian by the last page. He certainly had me interested long before that.

What's Inside

Tracy quotes Elbert Hubbard to define self-discipline as "the ability to do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not." He tells you how to employ self-discipline in 21 well-organized, easy to follow chapters. These chapters are clustered into groups of seven, which in turn make up the three parts of the book.

Part I covers self-discipline and personal success. This part covers things like goals, courage, and persistence, and how self-discipline helps you master them. Part II tells you how to use self-discipline in business, sales, and finances. Part III talks about quality-of-life issues like personal health, fitness, and marriage, and how you can use--you guessed it--self-discipline to achieve success in those areas.

Each chapter features a number of end-of-chapter exercises to get you moving in the right direction. Unlike many other books I've read, these exercises are good. Tracy truly helps you figure out where you are in each area of your life, and what you need to do to find success.

One of my favorite movie scenes is when Al Pacino is dressing down the faculty at the Baird School in "Scent of a Woman" when he tells of the many times he has come to the crossroads in his life. He says he always knew what was the right thing to do but never did it because it was just too hard. Too many people go through life just like the Colonel. That's why books like NO EXCUSES: THE POWER OF SELF DISCIPLINE, by Brian Tracy are necessary.

As the introduction states, "Your ability to think, plan and work hard in the short term and to discipline yourself to do what is right and necessary before you do what is fun and easy is the key to creating a wonderful future for yourself." Just like the Colonel, we know the right things to do, but often choose an easier route. This is why self discipline is the key ingredient needed to break the habit of mediocrity.

All of Brian Tracy's books are well worth reading, and I have to put this one in the top two or three. Here Tracy explores self discipline and how its' refinement and application benefit so many aspects of life. This is self discipline as it applies to everything from money to relationships; goal setting to problem solving.

The book is broken into three main parts, Self Discipline and Personal Success; Self Discipline and Business, Sales and Finances; and finally Self Discipline and The Good Life. Each part has 7 related chapters. Each chapter concludes with Action Exercises.

You won't have much success getting where you want to be in life without a big dose of self discipline. This book will help show you the way; how to build it, and how to apply it.

This book is a compilation of great ideas to keep or initiate a life of self discipline leading to success. I can see Brian Tracy bringing to the table the advice of many other successful people. What I like the most is the motivation that you get every time you read or re-read this book.

I bought this book a year ago and I still getting more and more from the book. I bought the audio version from audible.com (which belongs to Amazon). I wrote notes when I listened and just by revisiting my notes I get energy. Of course re-visiting a book and taking action from the advice it is what makes the difference! Actually it has impacted me more revisiting my notes over and over again than the first time I read the book.

The only point I don't agree is that he recommended to put an extreme amount of hours in the work, which I think contradicts to have a balance life with your family which is one of the topics he also addresses. This is minimum disagreement when I compare with all the good advice I got from this book. That is the reason I give my 5 stars.

I highly recommend this book as a reference book packed with a lot of wise advice for success. This is a book to read more than once.

"No more excuses! Do it or don't do it but don't make excuses. Stop using your incredible brain to think up elaborate rationalizations and justifications for not taking action. Do something. Do anything. Get on with it! Repeat to yourself: `If it's to be, it's up to me!' Losers make excuses; winners make progress. Now, how can you tell if your favorite excuse is valid or not? It's simple. Look around and ask, `Is there anyone else who has my same excuse who is successful anyway?' When you ask this question, if you are honest, you will have to admit that there are thousands and even millions of people who have had it far worse than you have who have gone on to do wonderful things with their lives. And what thousands and millions of others have done, you can do as well--if you try."

~ Brian Tracy from No Excuses!

Brian Tracy is one of my favorite old-school, kick-your-motivation-into-high-gear gurus.

I've read a *lot* of his stuff and listened to a *lot* of his stuff as well. He asks some of THE most provocative questions and reading his books often leads to some long journaling sessions packed with insight.

This book is packed with wisdom on how to get our self-discipline on. I highlighted nearly the whole thing in my Kindle and this Note is from Ideas in only the first half of it. :)

"I discovered that you can achieve almost any goal you set for yourself if you have the discipline to pay the price, to do what you need to do, and to never give up."

If you're resonating with the Ideas here, I think you'll love the book!

Here are some of the Big Ideas:

Someday Isle - It's time to vote yourself off.
The Battle Within - Lawyers, wolves, and angels.
Think Long-term - And rock it.
