This summer, I haven’t been doing as much writing on here as I usually do. That’s because I’ve been making room for more family time and reading time. If you are a writer, my two best pieces of advice to you are to make yourself available to do the work and to read as many books as you possibly can. That may seem counterintuitive–to write, you must read–but it is in the activity of reading where new ideas can begin to be pieced together and your writing style can evolve. I am also a big believer that once you are empty, you must fill yourself again, in order to then give your new findings and perspective away to others. This makes the idea process important, not only for you, but for other people as well.The world needs your ideas. Click To Tweet

Recently, Adam talked about viewing reading as a learning tool, not as a chore – I couldn’t agree more. He gave us some great tips explaining How To Read More Books This Year.
Sometimes reading can seem like a huge task, but I think most of us have heard “Leaders are Readers” at some point in our lives. If leaders love reading, then where does this passion come from? Why would you want to read more books this year?
Have you ever thought that you needed to have more discipline in your life? I know I have. The question usually is, “I have finally figured out who I want to be, but how do I get there?” or “Even if I don’t know who I want to be yet, can I be working on something while I am figuring everything out?”
These are the exact moments in life where this eBook came from. It came from my experiences of being in life’s valleys where I didn’t know which way to turn next. I share exactly what areas of focus that I learned to better concentrate on in my life such as goal setting, life transformation and developing a different mindset that will help you see where you are in life right now. This foundation-building eBook will give you important questions to answer as well as a step-by-step action plan to get you headed in the right direction of becoming more disciplined in your own life. In the end it is not only habits that will change, but a different lifestyle is formed and greatness is achieved.
This short, effective read can be used as a assessment tool as well as an action plan to get you to where you have always wanted to be, but weren’t willing to take the necessary steps or just didn’t know how you could achieve discipline in your own life. It is full of content, so you may even want to read it a few times to remind yourself of the helpful action steps in this eBook and keep yourself on track to achieve your life’s biggest goals.
Having discipline in your life doesn’t just have to be a thought, but it can be a reality in your life today.
