Discipline is the key to success because it allows you to have a sense of control over your day by day and minute by minute obligations. Without self discipline we are at the mercy of our emotions, saying “oh I’ll do that when I feel like it.” When self discipline is part of your life it allows you to get what you need done, no matter how you feel.
Self discipline comes down to doing the things you should do because you need to do them and not letting yourself wait until you’re in the mood. News flash, there will never be a convenient time in your day to do the things you need to get done. You have to be like Nike and, Just Do It.
Discipline is one of the most important things we can develop in our lives because, without it, we never get that continual progress toward what we really want. I’m sure there are areas in your life that you wish you had more disciple, like eating healthier, exercising more, practicing your music, standing up for yourself, and staying committed to your big dream. There’s a saying that goes, “with a little discipline you do little things, with a lot of discipline you do a lot of things, and with enough discipline there is nothing which you can’t do.” To begin practicing self discipline, start simple, think of something you can start doing every day no matter what. This could be drinking a glass of water as soon as you wake up, or putting your shoes on the shoe rack and not leaving them in the middle of your room at the end of each day. Little things that help you become better and lead you toward your end goal.
