Overview
Do you ride the escalator-or take the stairs?

No matter how you define success, it always requires one thing: self-discipline. But as popular speaker and strategist Rory Vaden explains, we live in an "escalator world"-one that's filled with shortcuts, quick fixes, and distractions that make it all too easy to slide into procrastination, compromise, and mediocrity. What seems like an easier path is really much harder in the end-and, most important, it won't take you where you want to go.

How do successful people stay focused and achieve results? This lively and insightful guide presents a simple program for taking the stairs-that is, for overcoming the temptations of quick fixes and procrastination, conquering creative avoidance, and transcending personal setbacks in order to tackle the work that leads to real success.

Whatever your goals are, Rory Vaden's proven approach will get you there-one stair at a time.

What really stands between us and success? Entrepreneur and motivational speaker Vaden claims it’s our lack of self-discipline. As a culture, we search for shortcuts—taking the escalator, as it were. This mindset is crushing our confidence and paralyzing the very actions it takes to truly become successful. Vaden wants to guide readers to do the hardest tasks as soon as possible so that they can efficiently achieve whatever they want in life. He sets up seven strategies for self-discipline: sacrifice, commitment, focus, integrity, schedule, faith, and action. Through case studies and action items, Vaden encourages readers to push through inaction and fear to embrace success. Despite an uncomfortably Landmark Forumesque tone—“You were born with an incredible power. You were born for a specific purpose. Inside you there is greatness that is indelibly yours”—Vaden offers a practical, encouraging, and inspiring message. (Feb.)
