Excerpt

Introduction
We all have dreams, but in order to make these dreams into
reality it takes an awful lot of determination, self-discipline
and effort.
Jesse Owens
Do you know who you are? Do you love what you are
doing? Do you have what you want out of life? Do you
know what you want out of life? Do you wake up and
jump out of bed every morning eager to face the challenges
of a new day? If not, then this step-by-step process will get
you “disciplined for life,” inspiring you to take control of each day.
After all, you are the author of your future.
My objective in writing this book is to help you help yourself:
to connect you to the most accurate central processing unit there
is—you! To do this, I will provide you with a step-by-step
approach to a method—complete with exercises to help you
author your future—which I have labeled “the 12 Disciplines.”
Living the lifestyle of your choice requires a conscious effort to
master the 12 Disciplines, but it’s a straightforward course of
action, and it’s available to everyone. However, you may have to
change some of your habits or behaviors.
In most organizations, management devotes enormous
energy to setting work objectives and conducting performance
reviews for individual employees. Corporations go through this
time-consuming and costly exercise to ensure the most favorable
11
You Are the Author
of Your Future
results for their firm. In professions such as sales, considerable
time is spent discovering and understanding the needs of clients
in order to provide a recommended action plan.
In contrast, how much time and energy do you expend discovering
your own needs and desires, and then consciously setting
objectives, developing action plans with measurable performance
standards, and finally reviewing your own performance? By
engaging in such an exercise, you will be doing something about
your life. You will be going to work on yourself, for yourself.
What’s different about this book? First of all, this book is not
about getting you high for a day or two. It is a self-discovery companion
and planning guide that will make a significant difference in
your life. It is based on adult learning principles and the adage that
“I could give you a fish and feed you for a day, or I can teach you
how to fish and feed you for life.”My intention is the latter, to provide
you with the tools to help you find and lead the life you crave.
There are millions of books in the market on this
topic.However, they all tell you what to do.Unfortunately,
I cannot tell you what your dreams are or what your
future will be. Only you can do that. So what I have done,
after sharing some of my own experiences with you, is ask
you some questions, and I have left space for you to write
out your answers. This process allows you to seek out the answers
from the inside out.Writing down the answers makes them clear.
When you write them down, you know the answers are yours, and
not someone else’s. You now own them, and this leads to a higher
level of commitment—and that is what commitment is all about.
By writing an answer as you come across a question, you not only
start to become “disciplined for life,” you literally become the
author of your future.
To benefit from this book will require discipline on your part as
you learn about self-motivation and personal leadership. You must
complete each exercise as it appears.As you complete them you will
start to realize that only you can make the difference in your life. By
doing the exercises, you are going through a self-discovery process.
As you discover and write out your answers, you take ownership,
and that is what makes the difference. Because it is your idea, you
own it and you are more committed to making it happen.
12
Life Disciplined for
I cannot tell you what your dreams are
or what your future will be. Only you
can do that.
Discipline is the key. Discipline is a commitment to
the most important person in the world. It means doing
what you have to do, even when you do not want to do it.
You now have in your hands the ideas and tools, combined
with an internationally proven adult learning process, for you to
make the difference in your life. The choice is yours, but it will
take discipline.
This book is divided into two parts. Part I is a process of selfdiscovery
and self-understanding. In Part I we get to understand
our Motives. Once your concept of success is defined and you
know your personal rights, you can make the decisions needed to
take control of your life.Meanwhile, you will learn about yourself,
what you want out of life, and how you want to be remembered.
In Part II, taking all the elements of Part I into consideration,
you will crystallize your future into an Action plan. This book’s
techniques and tools will guide you through the process. You just
have to do the work and put your plan into action.
It is in the doing that things get done.
Don’t think about it, just do it!
The process will be driven by you and it is thought-provoking
work. I have tried to make it as easy as I could for you by sharing
some personal life experiences and examples. However, if you
complete each exercise as it appears, and if you monitor and measure
your progress every month, I guarantee you that you will be
rewarded far beyond your expectations.
• • •
As a teenager, I didn’t know what I wanted to do or where I
wanted to go. My mind was cluttered with conflicting ideas from
school, religion, family and friends. I didn’t even know who I
really was. All I knew was what others told me about myself. My
whole life was driven by others.
When I turned 20, I began to explore the powers of the mind
and how attitude plays a significant role in everything. I became
13
You Are the Author
of Your Future
obsessed with it. Everything I read was about attitude, motivation
and goal setting. I became so focused in this area that I ignored the
world around me. I was so busy understanding the mind and its
capabilities that I couldn’t find the time to pay attention to daily
news events. I hope to impart to you the importance of leading a
healthy and well-balanced life while at the same time staying
focused on your goals.
In order to take full advantage of this book, and your life,
highlight your favorite passages and write down your thoughts.
Start now by writing your name in the space provided at
the front of the book. Complete all the exercises in the
order that they occur, and add your thoughts in the space
provided at the end of each chapter. Keep this as your personal
journal and reference book. Unlike a diary, where
you note your past, this book will serve as a diary of your
future, or the road map for your life, as you want it to be.
Only you are the author of your future.
You will learn a lot about yourself. By taking your
time, seeking internally, thinking things out and writing down
your thoughts, you will immediately begin to reap rewards.
Your self-image, self-respect, self-esteem, and the manner in
which you portray yourself to the world will improve. You will
lead yourself to the life of your choice.Why? Because nobody else
will. You are the only person responsible and accountable for you.
One final note: before moving on from one discipline to the
next, recognize and reward yourself by celebrating the completion
of all the exercises in that discipline, as any behavior that gets recognized
and rewarded gets repeated. Start treating the things you
enjoy as rewards tied to disciplines of action.
There are many support tools available to you in this book.
Additional support tools can also be found on my website at
www.BobU.com/discipline. Each of us has different modes of
learning, and we want to ensure you have all the tools available to
you in the form in which you learn best.
Now let’s move on to Part I and discover what success, attitude
and motivation are all about. Have fun!
