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.… (mere)

My thought process at the start: cliche. Common sense. Boring. Duh. Cliche. My thought process at the end: Tell me *more* oh great guru! The problem with these motivational texts in my world is that they are only motivational while I am actively reading it. After that...eh. ( )

Rory Vaden discusses why success requires self-discipline. By looking for short-cuts (i.e., the escalator), we are actually making our lives worse. Procrastination only exacerbates our problems, and shortcuts require more work in the end. Vaden expands on this idea:

“Our unwillingness to take action in our own individual lives might not seem like a global problem. But as our procrastination ripples through our homes, our schools, our communities, and our culture at large, we find our country becoming a ProcrastiNation unwilling to take on the tough challenges we face, and seeking immediate gratification instead of real growth and change.”

The most important message I got from Vaden’s book is to concentrate on your actions, not your results. Your everyday activities are within your power. Take pride in your stellar effort, and let go of the anxiety attached to the results. There are many things outside of your control (e.g. disease or injury) that can interrupt your progress. Put your self-esteem into your work habits; regardless in the outcome, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you did everything within your control. ( )
