  • How do I train myself to be self disciplined?

    There is no one answer to this question since every person has different motivations and tips to achieve discipline. However, some tips and recommendations on how to train yourself to be more self-disciplined may include set personal objectives on a journal, management of those same objectives by breaking them down into smaller pieces, create a "timeline or schedule" (we put this in quotes because it's a fancy way of saying set a deadline for your goal!!), and holding yourself accountable by telling someone, or some motivational people, you trust (maybe even a person coaching you who hopefully already reached your goal and can help you get there). We can go on and on but these success habits and tips are pretty universal in helping you achieve discipline and other things (in fact, you've probably seen them every so often in all the disciplines lists).

  • Which of these discipline books is the best to teach me self discipline and self-control?

    Based on all the things from our research, the #1 book about discipline is "No Excuses!" by Brian Tracy.

  • Is the first of these books definitely the best one?

    Not necessarily, like we said before "everyone has different motivations and methods for disciplining themselves". So I'd check 2-3 of these books and taking the best advice from each to build your own bullet-proof self discipline method.

  • Why did you make this list of top self-discipline books?

    There are many lists on the internet and they all are about the author's opinion. So we thought if we averaged the top opinions only, we'd have a list that's superior. We believe we did a good job at this and succeeded.

  • How many books are in this list?

    There are 15 (each a self-discipline book) in this list.

  • Why can't I add any of these books to a shopping cart?

    Our number one rule is "don't try to out-Bezos Bezos". Se we didn't add many features you can already find on Amazon (things like how each book is rated, one click buy, quotes, make reviews, etc...) Our goal is to write the best possible list and article for you (vs being yet another "me-too" page, which doesn't help anyone).
