By Pam Boiros

Yup, it’s that time of year!  The new 2011 calendar is open and full of possibilities, and many of us are saying “this will be the year” to accomplish a specific personal, professional, or career goal.

Author Brian Tracy is here to help with his practical and inspirational new book, No Excuses! The Power of Self-Discipline (© 2010, Published by Vanguard Press/Perseus Book Group).  This has been the most popular book on Books24x7, SkillSoft’s digital books collection, for the last several weeks.

Tracy starts by explaining the concept of self-discipline and how to take control of yourself for the long term.  He then goes on to specifically address twenty-one areas of life in which self-discipline can be a key to reaching life goals.  The book covers personal success topics such as responsibility, courage, persistence, as well as business goals related to leadership, money, time management.  It also describes how to apply the concept of self-discipline to more personal topics like personal health, marriage and family, and overall happiness.  Each section offers concise advice and guidance as well as action exercises to reinforce the concepts.

Brian Tracy is a force of nature – a prolific author as well as consultant, trainer, and executive coach.  He enjoys international name recognition and a worldwide following due to his tangible, action-oriented approach.
