Free Program From Brian Tracy

I'm a fan of Brian Tracy's. Every time I need a swift kick in the pants to get me going, I pick up a Brian Tracy book. I found this passage in his Goals book:

Self-Discipline is the ability, within yourself, based on your strength of character and willpower, to do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.

Character is the ability to follow through on a resolution after the enthusiasm with which the resolution was made has passed. It is not what you learn that is decisive for your future. It is whether or not you can discipline yourself to pay the price, over and over, until you finally obtain your objective.

You need self-discipline in order to set your goals and to make plans for their accomplishment. You need self-discipline to continually revise and upgrade your plans with new information. You need self-discipline to use your time well and to always concentrate on the one most important task that you need to do at that moment. You need self-discipline to invest in yourself every day, to build yourself up personally and professionally, to learn what you need to learn in order to enjoy the success of which you are capable.

You need self-discipline to delay gratification, to save your money, and to organize your finances so that you can achieve financial independence in the course of your working lifetime. You need self-discipline to keep your thoughts on your goals and dreams and keep them off of your doubts and fears. You need self-discipline to respond positively and constructively in the face of every difficulty.

If you have never read or heard any of Brian Tracy's material, you might want to check him out. Right now, he has a special offer of a free audio program (yeah, you have to pay $4.95 shipping and handling). Anyway, it is a cheap way to acquainted with him.
