“Self-discipline is doing what needs to be done when it needs to be done even when you don’t feel like doing it.”
By constant self-discipline and self-control, you can develop greatness of character. Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments.
In life everyone has a dream, everyone has a wish, everyone has a deep desire to achieve greatness. In all, it takes discipline to achieve your dreams. Everyone can set goals, everyone can set targets, everyone can set in motion activities geared towards achieving set targets but without aligning your actions with those set goals and targets all those will remain a mirage.
Motivation is good as one attribute that can help you achieve your set goals. You must be rightly motivated to keep pushing even in the face of daunting challenges. However, without discipline, motivation alone cannot lead you on towards success.
Self-discipline is your ability to stick to your plan even when it is most inconvenient to do so. Self-discipline helps you develop integrity one of the most important attributes to acquire in life. If you must reach your destination as planned, you need Self-discipline in thoughts and action.
Your victory begins in the mind, you must be in full control of your thoughts, it is by doing that, that you can mentally be in full control of your life. The wise have said, it is easier to defeat great armies than it is for a man to defeat himself. Overcoming yourself and putting your thoughts and actions in check as you desire is one of the strongest battles ever. Anyone who has won that battle can do exploits. Such a person can defeat even the strongest armies in life.
Self-discipline is about the suppression of ego and emotions to act in a way consistent with your goals. A disciplined person will surely go very far in life. You can be very talented, very gifted but without discipline, you run the risk of ruining your life. Some of the greatest minds that have ever passed through mortality lost their steam because of lack of discipline.
Self-discipline leads to self-mastery, self-control which naturally boosts your self-confidence. Discipline is like a muscle as you keep aligning your thoughts, actions, and goals, you gain greater strength and power to keep pushing along the path towards your destination.
Self-discipline requires absolute commitment to goals and set objectives. One who possesses it will always live a calm life even under the most tomentous circumstances. To be self-disciplined is a decision you must make first in your mind with clarity.
In fact, it is a decision you need to make after weighing all the options. It is scarcely a decision you make spontaneously or in the heat of emotions, if not it will evaporate easily.
To become successful in life and remain so consistently, you need a high dose of Self-discipline. It seems one of the key differences between leaders and nonleaders. You need to understand that leadership here is not about position. One can be in a position and not be a leader. One can be in a position without any positive influence. When influence is forced or induced, leadership is absent.
It takes Self-discipline to command the kind of influence that can move people to act in a certain way.
Of all the decisions you need to make, decide to wear the garment of Self-discipline and see yourself at the top!
