Self discipline is really about self control. An inner strength that allows you to control yourself, your actions and your behavior. It is one of the most important skills needed to accomplish your goals. Taking a step forward with perseverance, persistence and of course self discipline is key to living your dream.
We are always going to encounter challenges and distractions on the path to success. So how can we cultivate our discipline? How can we make our dreams, our goals, our future part of our study? How can we make it our discipline?
1. Self Awareness – First we need to understand and be aware of what we do and what we don’t do. Basically we need to catch our self’s in the act of being undisciplined.
2. Commitment – 52 Weeks Forward is about knowing where we want to be a year from now and committed to the activities needed to get there.
3. Eat the Frog – Brian Tracy wrote the book on time management. My favorite way to focus on my goal is to take care of what I need to first thing in the morning. The rest of the day will be joyous.
Look at your last week. How many times did you procrastinate a task? How many times was is “the” task that would propel you forward?
Be courageous. There is going to be a part of you that doesn’t want you to be disciplined. So often being disciplined is seen as a negative. It’s what we do to our kids when they misbehave.
I challenge you to look at your daily behavior. If you’re struggling to reach a goal or accomplish a task it all may come down to self-discipline.
The possibilities and YOU are limitless!
