“Self-denial and self-discipline, however, will be recognized as the outstanding qualities of a good soldier.” – William Lyon Mackenzie King
Life is indeed a battle. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying or living in a bubble. Just to be able to have all your needs met requires that you battle against many things like laziness, stress, the desire to do something else other than sit on a chair and in front of a computer for at least 8 hours from Monday to Friday, and sleeping in on a cold, rainy morning.
And that’s just your needs. If you’re looking to experience massive successes in life, then you’re looking at even bigger opponents such as highly competitive work colleagues or business rivals, very critical bosses and clients, inflation and rapidly changing customer needs and wants, among other things. To get through life, you’ll need to work both smart and hard.
To work hard enough, you’ll need to be able to consistently do things you don’t want to do to get those things that you really want. Doing that is called self-discipline. And it’s a necessary ingredient for success. And to put it in battlefield terminology, self-discipline is your single biggest weapon as a soldier engaged in a very intense battle for personal and professional success. Whether it’s getting promoted to general manager at your firm or getting the ripped, 6-pack abs you’ve always been dreaming of, self-discipline is the component that can make your smart work stick around long enough to bear much fruit.
Within the pages of this book are key self-discipline tactics – hacks, if you want to call them that – which will enable you to muster enough self-discipline to achieve major breakthroughs in your life. These are very practical hacks that you can do that can significantly tilt the odds in your favor – the odds of becoming disciplined enough to succeed in life. By the end of the book, I’m confident that not only will you be in a good position to win the battle for success, but that you’ll also be encouraged to start applying the things you’ll learn here.
