No Excuses! shows you how you can achieve success in all three major areas of your life:
Your personal goals: self-discipline can help you realize that you are responsible for your success and shows you how persistence really does pay off.
Your business and money goals: self-discipline can make you a better leader and a better manager, help you close more sales and make more money, improve your time-management and problem- solving abilities, and make you more effective and successful at work.
Your overall happiness: self-discipline can help you be happier, healthier, and more physically fit, and it can help you in your marriage and your relationships with your children and friends.
Each of the 21 chapters in this audiobook 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 listen to this audiobook!

Same stuff - and the title is misleading
I was patient, I waited until near the end but Brian - just adding 'Self-Discipline and " to a chapter heading on things you've written about before (repeatedly) doesn't make it a book about self-discipline. I've read widely in this area (Covey, Robbins, Ziglar, Rohn, Canfield) and 1) there's not an original thought here and 2) I was looking on advice about self-discipline and there really wasn't any. Just 'Self Discipline and ..... business, wealth, work, time management. In effect, chapters about those subjects with Self-Discipline added to the title but little actual advice on SD!
You're a good writer but you're getting repretitive. And stop pausing after 'the' or 'and' - it sounds like you've forgotten what you're going to say.
In a nutshell, the advice is good but it is NOT what the title promises. Buy something cheaper.

It is not easy to criticise Brian Tracy as his work is generally outstanding and this audiobook does contain a few gems, BUT there is nothing new. It is all his old work over many years simply preceded by a paragraph on how it takes self discipline to achieve ( sales, money, time management etc etc). Having several of his other books, I regret buying this one.

Don't buy this book if you have his GOALS! book
What would have made No Excuses! better?
if it wasn't basically a jazzed up copy of Goals! I was pleased with his goals book and thought this one would help.
it had the same questions as goals and I feel ripped off. Buy one or the other don't buy both, you'll regret it.

Michelle, not Steve, Carver: I absolutely loved this book! I've probably listened to it to it 3 or 4 times already. It's very fast moving and the ideas are very well organized. I did not buy this book to find a never-before-heard of secret to self-discipline and so hearing familiar thoughts and ideas was in no way a disappointment to me. Rather I'd hoped to find motivational encouragement to put into practice those ideas I know to be true about achieving greatness in life and this book absolutely delivers! I'll definitely be listening to this book many more times. I honestly find myself already doing hard things that I would rather procrastinate and that is the motivation I hoped to find in this book. Two thumbs up!
