SELF DISCIPLINE – THE IMPORTANCE OF DEVELOPING SELF DISCIPLINE
REMEMBER THE GUY WHO GAVE UP- NEITHER DO I
Hello and Welcome
Self Discipline is one of, if not the most important ingredient for reaching your goals and becoming successful. It affects every facet of your life. This one personal trait determines every other part of your character, without exception.
The truth is, whether you know it or not, you have never met, seen or heard of a successful person who did not have this one character trait, that didn’t have a great amount of self-discipline within their life.
Self Discipline is being able to perform and keep your life on schedule. Being able to meet commitments and promises and complete deadlines is essential to success.
In its simplest form self-discipline helps you to get things done, and when you actually get things done, you gain confidence resulting in more success. Let’s look first at the benefits of self-discipline in our inner world.
There is an enormous amount of self-pride to be gained as we push through situations, challenges and learning curves that we once labelled problems, difficulties and mistakes, to do the things we know need to be done that we would otherwise put off to some later date or not at all.
You acquire self-respect knowing you can rely on yourself, and that you alone are responsible for action. With each small step taken you gift yourself with not only self-respect, but self-worth and self-esteem, from which self-love is born.
As Self Discipline grows so does your belief in achieving your goals. A fire starts to grow that ignites into not only belief but a knowing. You become much more comfortable in your outlook for a brighter future.
You feel that nothing life throws at you can’t be done or overcome. You begin to find your true self and there is a knowing that whispers reminding you, that you are more than capable of handling any current, or future situations that may arise.
You look forward to challenges and the effort comes out of the doing. You are inspired and focused on achievement. You are full of new ideas on how to recreate your life, that you have had hidden away behind a veil of fear and self-doubt.
You have a new lust for life, you see things you didn’t see before, you start to see yourself owning new things. Your goals now feel very reachable, and you look even further to new and bigger goals.
You look at things differently and are much more comfortable within yourself and around others. There is no more intimidation, you feel you are on a level playing field. You build new positive relationships, you start to leave behind those who are satisfied to be unchallenged by life.
Making progress and achieving goals is now the joy you pursue. Each small goal achieved makes you hungrier for the next, and then the next. You are in the flow, and it feels soo good.
Your time is freed up because you achieve what you have set out to do, and you make time for the other things that are important to you. You are able to balance your life and prioritise your time between work, family, exercise, holidays and the things that are most important to you.
Your future is greeted with a hunger to do more and become more. You feel free from past disappointment and future concerns. You start to imagine all the changes you’d like to make, that before you didn’t think were possible.
Your energy levels rise and you become uncomfortable with procrastination. You are continually looking to raise the bar in every area of your life, whether that be work, family, exercise, diet, relationships or knowledge. You are comfortable being uncomfortable in your pursuit.
Your mind is busy on solutions and not problems, freeing you up in the moment to make confident decisions. While your thoughts about your future are filled with the accomplishment of your goals. You are in a permanent state of positive, relaxed knowing and you go to sleep eager to attack tomorrow’s possibilities.

Self Discipline Is Changing From
Is there a more important character trait we need to own? I don’t think so. Sometimes a big part of success is not being lazy and just doing it, 90% of it is just showing up. You’re not going to feel perfect every day, and not feeling perfect is never an excuse.
If the great ones only ever acted when they felt good, they wouldn’t be great, they’d be also-rans. There’s going to be a lot of days when you just don’t want to do it, it’s pretty much the same for everyone that actually gets good at something.
There are going to be days when you just have to push through and there probably going to be just as numerous as the days you don’t. So the benefit of self-discipline in its most relative and basic form is that you will get things done.
