The Pain of Discipline Now or the Pain of Regret Later

This morning I started a course of sessions with a Personal Trainer.  

I have been going to the gym regularly, doing my cardio workout and machine-based exercises plus I take weekly swimming classes so I think I am pretty fit.  I just want that extra "oomph" to lose a few kgs and tighten up some of the legs-bums-tums muscles that us women have a problem with, especially when we have had children so our abdomen muscles have stretched to a ridiculous size in relation to the rest of our body.

The good news is that my Personal Trainer, Dan, is very good looking and knows what he is doing.  The bad news is that I ache and feel weary all over.  

The easy option would be to give up now, go back to my previous exercise plan, but what would that achieve?

As Jim Rohn said,
"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live." 

Exercise is a discipline of both body and mind.  I know that choosing not to do the exercise will mean that I cannot wear some of my favourite clothes this summer because right now they are too tight.  Longer-term, I do not want to be one of the middle-aged women who have allowed the lbs/kgs to stick to my waist and thighs.  There are many women younger than me in my health club who are very obese.  At some point, they made the wrong choices and now they are trying to shed that weight.  It is so much easier to have the discipline now rather than having to correct the lack of discipline later.
"We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment."
Are there areas in your life where you know that discipline is what is needed to help you achieve your goals?  I can help you with my unique combination of Hypnosis, NLP Results Coaching and Personal Development to instill the motivation and determination to start the process and maintain the discipline to keep going.  I help people worldwide through Skype so contact me today, the English Skype Hypnotist, to set out a plan for reaching your goals with discipline of steel.

Jim Rohn Wishes For You a Life of Wealth, Health and Happiness

Here's a great wish from Jim Rohn:

"I wish for you a life of wealth, health and happiness; a life in which you give to yourself the gift of patience, the virtue of reason, the value of knowledge, and the influence of faith in your own ability to dream about and achieve worthy rewards." Jim Rohn

Download 179 Personal Development MP3 and Audio Books for Only $29.95

If you're like me, you enjoy listening to inspirational, motivational and informative talks by people in the personal development world. Reading books is great but sometimes time does not permit us to read all the books we want. So listening to those books, or at least key parts of the books, is the next best thing. In fact, if we are auditory people, more than visual, listening to a book can be the best way to take in the information.

Many audio books are available to purchase, usually for anywhere from $10 upwards to maybe $50. I ordered one book by Stephen Covey, the classic "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" then decided that listening to the audio book in my car would be the quickest way to access the information. A Google search led me to a site which offers 179 audio books and ebooks from many of the leading speakers in the personal development world. Here is the best part, these 179 titles are available as immediate download files for just $27.95. That is $27.95 for all 179 titles


An amazing offer. I am busy downloading files as I write from these famous speakers and authors:

- Tony Robbins
- Zig Ziglar
- Stephen Covey
- Les Brown
- Wayne Dyer
- Louise L Hay
- Jim Rohn
- James Allen
- John Earl Shoaff (Jim Rohn's mentor!)
- Dale Carnegie
- Brian Tracy
- Norman Vincent Peale
- Robert G Allen

Famous titles:
- Rich Dad Poor Dad
- Think and Grow Rich
- The Four Hour Work Week
- The Richest Man in Babylon (recommended by Jim Rohn)
- The Secret
- The Science of Getting Rich
- The Silva Method
- Who Moved My Cheese?

There are several audio books on sex and relationships and even meditation audios and hypnosis MP3 downloads from:
- Paul McKenna
- Wendi Friessen

What is also amazing about this offer is that the site is often updated with new titles and the $27.95 purchase covers lifetime downloads.  In fact, I subscribed with this one-off payment in 2011 when there were 135 titles and am still downloading new titles when added.

Yes, some of these titles are freely available to download in the public domain but you have to hunt for them AND I bet there are titles here that don´t come to mind but will be hugely worthwhile.
