What I’m Reading – January 2023

I’ve just finished reading, The Power of Discipline – How To Use Self-Control and Mental Toughness to Achieve Your Goals by Daniel Walter.

The book’s underlying theme is taking responsibility for where you are now, and for your actions to get where you want to be.  I learned that self-discipline is actually a skill, one that can be learned just like any other skill. Self-discipline is so key that without it, no other success principles work.

Self-discipline is the key to crack the code of personal fulfillment and can take the ordinary person to extraordinary heights.

This is a small book with several chapters that will support you in –

  • Creating and building habits and behavior patterns that can transform your life
  • Understand what self-discipline, and how critical it is to getting what you want
  • Learning to take control of your habits, your patterns and your actions

Self-discipline is about putting in the work to reap the benefits. It’s about taking control of your financial life, your personal life, and your work life and achieving something remarkable, this book provides many ideas.

He also provides a free gift of “Master Your Morning”. The power of a consistent morning routine can take your life from mediocrity to soaring new heights. It is a fantastic beginning to start your journey of self-discipline.

A quote from the book on the benefit of self-discipline –

“A self-disciplined person is confident because, regardless of where they are at that moment, they know that they are the best version of themselves. They are eating properly, exercising, and working towards their goals. They feel good about life because they are in the driver’s seat, and they know exactly where they are going.”

If you’re interested in learning the skills of discipline, self-control, and willpower, this book is a great place to begin your journey.
