Self-Discipline is one of those skills we're not all born with.
But, like most skills in life, we can work on it if we want to- and, it's not as hard as it sounds.
1-Create Habits Unique to You
Let's say you really want to get more toned and in better shape. More often than not, it's always a good idea to start one step at a time, so you don't feel too overwhelmed. Getting started is half the battle. And, once you've made that first step, and you've had that first gratifying, albeit sweaty, accomplishment under your belt- all you have to do is add a little more every day.
2-Get Rid of Temptations and/or Distractions
You'll end up procrastinating, trust me. It happens to the best of us.
With that in mind, if you know you spend too much time on your phone (something I think we've all been guilty of from time to time), then put it in another room until you've finished your tasks. Again, you're in charge here- you can set your own rules, but you still have to adhere to them.
3-Have a Goal
Set clear, realistic daily goals.
If you don't have a goal, you'll end up continually floating in limbo, without knowing where you are going. By setting smaller daily goals, you'll be able to complete all of your tasks.
You have to want it! No one is going to serve it to you on a gold platter. Nothing you want in life is going to magically fall in your lap. You've got to want it, you've got to put in the effort, you've got to take action.
Your mind is your most powerful tool. If you set your mind to something, if you are fully committed, if you believe you can reach your goals- nothing can stand in your way. Be firm with yourself. If it means so much to you, tell yourself, “no more excuses, I can do this, get it done.”
5- If You Stumble, Forgive Yourself
Acknowledge the reason why you couldn't finish the task. Take responsibility for it, but then move on. Keep moving forward, one day at a time, one foot in front of the other. There's no reason to beat yourself up over something that went wrong. And, anger only sets you back and makes you frustrated. Learn from your mistakes so you can improve, so you can grow, but keep going. Get re-focused on your goal and never lose sight of it.
Let me know what your tricks are to stay disciplined! I can't wait read all your comments and learn from you.
