An ex-Navy SEAL presents a guide on how to achieve freedom through discipline, outlining the mental and physical practices that shaped his career and continue to help him reach fulfilling goals while outmaneuvering common pitfalls.
"People look for the shortcut. The hack. And if you came here looking for that: you won't find it. The shortcut is a lie. The hack doesn't get you there. And if you want to take the easy road, it won't take you to where you want to be: Stronger. Smarter. Faster. Healthier. Better. Free. To reach goals and overcome obstacles and become the best version of you possible will not happen by itself. It will not happen cutting corners, taking shortcuts, or looking for the easy way. There is no easy way. There is only hard work, late nights, early mornings, practice, rehearsal, repetition, study, sweat, blood, toil, frustration, and discipline. There must be discipline. Discipline: the root of all good qualities. The driver of daily execution. The core principle that overcomes laziness and lethargy and excuses. Discipline defeats the infinite excuses that say: not today, not now, I need a rest, I will do it tomorrow. What's the hack? How do you become stronger, smarter, faster, healthier? How do you become better? How do you achieve true freedom? There is only one way. The way of discipline."--Pages 2-3.

Strict and harsh. Lacks self compassion and wiggle room. Often states the obvious. Written White print on Black background. For an alternative, I recommend "Making a Change For Good. A Guide to Compassionate self-discipline" by Cheri Huber. Reading it one after the other, really shows the difference and how the 'Black book" doesn't work for humans. Good luck on your path.
