Abstract or Description

This is a book about an old-fashioned concept that has been neglected, but is due for a comeback. No matter how talented you are in life, talent on its own will not get you far. But talent plus self-discipline will. So what is self-discipline? In this book, self-discipline here means committing yourself to long-term goals, and taking the necessary steps to work towards them even if this is at the expense of shorter term goals. Using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques, this book looks at the skills and beliefs needed to do this, and explains how to get the most out of your long-term self.
