Introduction to The Power of Discipline and Ways it Will Change Your Life
Have you ever wondered why you didn’t get into the college that you wanted?
Or get that job you thought you deserved?
Have you ever thought why you find it difficult to sustain your relationships?
Have you always been puzzled as to why your results are never equal to the amount of effort that you put in?
What is your relationship with discipline?
Is it a dirty word that makes you feel guilty?
Is it something that you have mastered?
I suspect that most people know that discipline is important to living and leading your best life but they underestimate how important it truly is.
There is no single factor that leaders should seek to develop more than a discipline of thinking and action.
The answer to these above questions are most likely due to your lack of discipline.
The reason why some of us fail to meet our targets …
… even despite our best efforts, is because we lack the discipline.
You cannot look at discipline as a negative element in your life …
… because when you are disciplined, you will recognize your actions and behaviors and the impact they have on your life.
Discipline will allow you to work and better yourself …
… and to Never Give Up on your Undeniable Vision!
One of the things that most people do not understand about success and people that are successful …
… they do not love everything they have to do to be where they are.
A few examples of some of those things are …
… they get up early and they practice or study while others are watching TV.
Why do you think they do things they dislike?
Because they know that’s the price they have to pay for success …
… so they have learned to discipline themselves to do the things they know they should do whether they like it or not.
In Brian Tracy’s powerful book he wrote, “Self-discipline is the key to personal greatness …
… it is the magic quality that opens all doors for you, and makes everything else possible.
With self-discipline, the average person can rise as far and as fast as his talents and intelligence can take them.
But without self-discipline, a person with every blessing of background, education and opportunity will seldom rise above mediocrity.”
Even just thinking about adding a little more self-discipline in your life can be somewhat painful at first …
… but it can quickly make you feel a lot better about yourself and your situation.
Injecting discipline in your life requires vigilance and commitment …
… but it guarantees long-term success.
More questions have to be asked, so you can find the answers and the discipline that will follow:
What area of your life could benefit from a little more self-discipline?
What magnificent dream could you achieve through focused, disciplined effort?
Remember in the end, discipline is not complicated or out of reach …
… truly it is really nothing more than actually doing what you know must be done in a timely and consistent manner.
The power of self-discipline is yours when you decide to use it …
… and it is the most effective option.
When you choose to exercise the discipline of which you are already capable …
… and therefore breaking through the limits that previously held you back, you will achieve all you want in life.
Self discipline requires you to be able to take appropriate action regardless of the emotional state you are in …
… and it is a conscious decision that will take you through whatever you have set your mind upon.
Self discipline does not happen overnight, it takes time to build.
An analogy of self discipline would be building of endurance.
You start off with small steps and gradually progress to a higher level …
… and your effort has to be consistent and it must not be effected by external conditions such as mood, fatigue or time.
In this short video you will be asked the question, What is the #1 key to personal success?
One of America’s leading authors on the development of human potential, Brian Tracy, said, “If I had to pick the number one key to success, it would be self-discipline. It is the difference in winning or losing; between greatness and mediocrity.”
Self-discipline is like a muscle.
The more you use it, the stronger you become.
The less you use it, the weaker you become.
