Summary

Stop not doing what you know you should do! You might think laziness, lack of willpower, and/or low motivation are to blame for the fact that you aren't achieving your goals. But fascinating research in the field of psychoneuroimmunology has revealed another, far more likely possibility. One with the potential to transform your life in a dramatic way. The typical excuses for not doing what you know you should - I'm too stressed out... I don't have the time... I don't have the energy, etc. - are, in fact, manifestations of a complex, interconnected web of psychological, chemical, and neurological factors. When activated, these factors can effectively paralyze you - making it virtually impossible for you to take the actions needed to create change in your life. In other words, even if you're highly motivated... if you've got these internal circumstances operating, you aren't going to be able to do it. But while the biochemistry may be complex, the solutions are actually quite simple. Dr. Nick Hall reveals these solutions - and the fascinating science behind them - in I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? You'll learn: An extraordinarily powerful stress-fighting tool that very few people take advantage of. An easy way to instantly regain control and stay focused in an emotional emergency. Six things to do when you think you've taken on more than you can accomplish in the time you have. The mistake almost everyone makes when they organize their to-do list. A simple exercise that can instantly tell you which side of your brain is dominant at any given time. The first-thing-in-the-morning action that will literally reset your internal clock and have a profoundly positive impact on your energy level for the rest of the day (and it is SO easy to do!). PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Summary

Jim Whitaker, the first American to climb Mt. Everest, once said: “You can never conquer the mountain. You can only conquer yourself.” Yet, when the vast majority of people encounter obstacles to their goals, or difficulties on the journey of life, they tend to put their focus on the mountain - things that they cannot control, things outside of themselves - rather than turning inward, taking responsibility and conquering the self. That process of conquering the self is another name for that priceless quality of personality we call self-discipline. And, in this priceless collection of great ideas in sound from the world leader in personal development, Nightingale-Conant, you will be provided with all of the essential tools of self-discipline to conquer the self in every major arena of life. Welcome to The Ultimate Self-Discipline Library: How to Eliminate Excuses and Take Charge of Your Life! In this 10-volume library, you will hear some of the best ideas on self-discipline published by Nightingale-Conant over the past 50 years. You’ll learn: how to build self-disciplined habits, how to develop beliefs that support a self-disciplined life, how to be disciplined in several areas of your life like your goal achievement, time management, financial success, career success, and health and wellness. And you’ll learn how discipline can even help you savor the fruits of your labor - such as a lifestyle of simplicity and happiness. Best of all, you’ll discover that developing self-discipline need not be a laborious, tedious, and long process. Rather you’ll find that self-discipline can be an exciting adventure where you steer your life in the direction you want to go. And remember what William Feather once said: “If we don’t discipline ourselves, the world will do it for us.” Make the decision today to be the person who chooses to eliminate excuses and take charge of your life - so you can steer it to your own pre-determined destination.  Throughout this 10-volume library, you’ll be treated to the wisdom of 19 different Nightingale-Conant authors: Brian Tracy, Kerry Johnson, Denis Waitley, Jim Rohn, Larry Winget, Dr. Nick Hall, John Powers, Peter McLaughlin, Jim Loehr, Richard Koch, Rick Ott, David Allen, Dan Sullivan, Lou Tice, Dr. Eric Plasker, John Cummuta, Thomas Schweich, and of course, a final inspirational word from our company’s co-founder, the late Earl Nightingale.

I Know How to Set Goals, So Why Don't I Achieve Them?

Summary

Millions of people set goals every year, only to fall short of achieving them (if they ever begin at all) over and over again. There are scores of audio programs on how to set goals, but few if any that deal what to do when your best laid plans never materialize. In this cutting-edge program by Dr. Nick Hall, I Know How to Set Goals, So Why Don't I Achieve Them?, you'll learn the latest in neuroscience and psychology on how to make sure you reach every goal you set. In order to achieve goals, you must begin by removing, or at least minimizing, potential impediments to success. There are many, however, the most crippling are those that reside within your mind. Granted, changes in the economy, the actions of others, and unexpected obstacles can derail even the most worthy plans despite the best intentions. But they pale in comparison to the impact your thoughts have. That's because you don't respond to reality. You respond to a mental image of reality. It is the image that gives rise to emotion, which in turn will motivate you to approach or avoid. We tend to approach those things associated with positive emotions such as love and joy, and avoid those linked with negative emotions such as disgust and sadness. In addition, the image is driving the endocrine and autonomic nervous system pathways, which provide the biological foundation of the entire stress response. This is important to understand because it enables you to always have control over the impact events have upon your mental and physical well-being. You can't always control external events. But after listening to this program, you'll learn that you can always exert a measure of control over your perception of those events. You'll also learn: How to create new mental images that remove the blocks in the goal setting process The role that beliefs play in supporting or sabotaging you in achieving your goals. How to change unhealthy belief systems to empowering belief systems. Discovering what you truly value in life, and setting goals that are in alignment with those values. How to divide your goals into more achievable "sub-goals". The role emotions play in goal achievement.
