At the end of the day discipline is that, if I want to do something and I can do it under any circumstances. So how do I build discipline that would lead me to achieve every possible thing that I dreamt of ?
The only airtight way too build discipline is to follow the commands of yourself.
No matter you are working out regularly for 10 days or 1 year there is always an inner instinct that tells us that we can not do it. Our inner self tells us that I cannot lift this heavy, I am not advising you to not listen to your inner instinct and get injured.
So all you need to do is to create controlled situations. You tell yourself yes and you do YES. You tell your self no and follow the NO.
To built that muscle you need to create controlled situations and you can achieve the unbelievable.
How To Master Self Discipline
1. Self discipline is different from discipline.
When you say you're disciplined, you do what you need to do because someone else is watching you.
But when you are self disciplined, you do what you need to do even if you've only made your promise to yourself.
PRACTICE, FAIL, START OVER
2. Learn how to delay gratification.
Many times it's easy to give in to our desire for comfort.
But if you want to achieve greater things, you have to learn how to create sacrifices and prioritize your goals.
Set your goals high and don't stop until you get there.
3. Don't wait to get in the mood.
Here's the truth, you are never going to be in the mood 100% unless you decide that you will do something.
Act on what you nee to do. Don't give yourself enough time to reason or talk yourself out of the things that you ought to do.
If you're in bad mood, take a deep breath.
4. Make it achievable.
The goals you set for yourself have to be realistic, yet challenging.
Be careful not to set unachievable deadlines or targets because you will be setting yourself up to fail. When you've failed too many times, you might just get demotivated or even it mess up your confidence.
Practice patience and you will be able to achieve everything.
5. Create a routine.
Consistent actions towards your goals soon will transform into a habit.
It's much better to do it one small step at a time than to try to do a lot and get stuck in the end.
The secret of your future is hidden in a daily routine.
6. Think long term results.
Look ahead to around 3 to 5 years from now. Think about how your life will look like.
Are the actions you're doing today directing you towards your desires?
The future starts today not tomorrow.
7. Create accountability.
Be more accountable for your goals by letting other people know about them.
Have somebody dared you to do something, and you did it just for the sake even though you're terrified or hated doing it?
It's the same principle in action here but in a much healthier way.
Accountability is the glue that ties commitment to the result.
