Self Discipline: How I Went from Lazy to Productive by Changing from Within: Master Self And Time Management Skills And Become More Laser Sharp Focused Than Ever Before!


How I Finally Figured Out How To Stay Disciplined Once And For All. Master Time and Self Management for Life!

Look, if you’re viewing this book, there’s one thing that I know about you. You have a goal, maybe multiple goals. There’s something that you really, really want to achieve. This goal may by relatively small, or a gigantic, crazy goal in which you have no idea how to achieve. Either way, you’re looking for a book on self discipline because you know that this vitally important skill is the one thing that will prevent you from achieving this goal and pretty much anything else.

I write this because for the last 5 years, I knew this as well. I’ve always wanted to do big, crazy things with my life, and it didn’t take me long to realize that self discipline was the only thing that was stopping me. I would set a goal, work very hard on it at first- and then fall off track. I failed so many times and really wanted to figure this self discipline thing. I looked at the greats of the world- Steve Jobs, Michael Phelps, LeBron James, and just marveled at their unbelievable, unstoppable work ethic and discipline.

For 5 years I tried to figure out how they did it. What was their secret? What drove them to work so hard every single day? I tried every self-help strategy out there- visualization, vision boards, affirmations, afformations, incantations, accountability, straight-up willpower, meditation, morning rituals, scheduling, self-hypnosis, banning YouTube from my computer network, staying in the present moment- you name it.

None of them worked. Any of them. And for a lot of people, they are in the same shoes that I was in for five years. They can’t figure out why they just can’t get themselves to stay disciplined. And now? Me? I’m finally that disciplined person I’ve always wanted to be. I’m at the gym every day. I practice my craft as a classical cellist more every day. I just wrote a freaking book. I’m consistent, and almost never fall off track. I’m the person that I dreamed to be for five years.

And let me give you a hint: It’s not a strategy that made the difference for me. What finally allowed me to change and be disciplined, once and for all, was to change from within as a person. That’s what we’ll talk about in this book. Yes, I will talk about powerful strategies, even some of the ones I listed above, but this book resolves around the fundamental principle that you must change as a human being at a personal level.

I wrote this book because I know there are people out there struggling with what I struggled with for 5 years- and I don’t want these people to have to spend 5 years trying to figure this thing out like I did. I want people to learn from my mistakes, and learn how I went from lazy to super productive.

Let me give you an overview of what you’ll find in this book

  • The importance of active vs passive learning
  • The key to all permanent change
  • The 5 essential habits of disciplined people
  • What the world’s most successful people do to stay disciplined
  • How to set incredible goals
  • The importance of self identity
  • Why you must engrain your goals inside yourself every single day
  • Much, much more!

For a limited amount of time, I’m going to be offering this book for only $0.99.This book is regularly priced at $4.99, but I want as many people as possible to learn the truth about self discipline. So if you are tired of failing time and time again to stay disciplined- I highly, highly encourage you to download and, more importantly, take action on what you will learn in this book- a book I wish I had five years ago. Best of luck.

To your success,
Isaac Berglind

Angular 4: From Theory To Practice: Build the web applications of tomorrow using the new Angular web framework from Google.


*Updated to Angular v4 released on March 2017*

After reading this book, you are going to be able to:-

– Understand the latest features of ES6 JavaScript and TypeScript.
– Build an Angular 2 application from scratch using TypeScript and the Angular command line interface.
– Write code using the paradigm of reactive programming with RxJS and Observables.
– Know how to Unit Test Angular 2 using Jasmine, Karma and the Angular Test Bed

The first chapter in the course is a quickstart where you dive straight into writing your first Angular 2 application. We use the web editor plunker so you can get stuck in writing code ASAP.

In this quickstart you’ll get a 50,000 foot view of the major features of Angular 2.

Then chapter by chapter we go much deeper into each of these features. I’ll cover the theory for that feature, using plunker as much as possible so you can try out the code yourself in a browser. Then you’ll practice what you’ve learnt with either an online quiz or a set of flash cards.

You are going to learn all about:-

– Typescript & ES6 Javascript.
– Components & Binding
– Directives
– Dependancy Injection & Services
– Angular Modules & Bootstrapping your Angular application.
– SPAs & Routing
– Angular CLI
– Forms
– Reactive Programming with RXJs
– HTTP
– Unit Testing

The ideal student is an existing web developer, with some JavaScript knowledge that wants to add Angular 2 to their skill set. Or perhaps you are an existing Angular 1 developer who wants to level up to Angular 2.

You do need to be comfortable with at least the ES5 version of JavaScript. We’ll be using a UI framework called twitter bootstrap throughout the course but you still must know HTML and some CSS.
