This podcast was about the GOAT of all character traits: Discipline. 

  • The excerpt at the start of the show was from the book Discipline Equals Freedom, by Jocko Willink. Jocko is a retired Navy Seal Commander and an all around inspirational guy. You can buy the book here. I highly recommend reading it if you respond well to tough love. You can also follow Jocko on Instagram and get your daily dose of motivation.

  • The quote, "Dozens of studies show that willpower is the single most important keystone for individual success" is from the book, The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg. You can buy that book here.

  • This week's Call-To-Action is about exercising discipline to start a new habit. We're going to choose something relatively simple so that we can experience success and make a benchmark for more ambitious changes in our future.

  • The quote I ended the podcast with is by Teddy Roosevelt. In case it bears repeating it goes like this, "The one quality that sets one man apart from another- the key which lifts one to every aspiration while others are caught up in the mire of mediocrity- is not talent, formal education, nor intellectual brightness- it is self-discipline. With self-discipline, all things are possible. Without it, even the simplest goal can seem like the impossible dream."
