“Discipline is rarely enjoyable but almost always profitable”
Self discipline is much like any skill. Some of us may be born with a natural ability to harness it, though most if not all of us, have to practise it. Motivation may be what sparks us to begin working towards our goals, however, it is discipline that keeps us going in the process. When motivation fails, discipline takes over and becomes imperative towards our success. Ingraining the act of discipline comes in small daily decisions to continue doing something even if we don’t want to. It can be the difference between ordering the burger or having the salad, sleeping in or going to the gym, and continuing to work or beginning meditation. If self discipline is the secret ingredient towards continual success, what can you do today to instil your discipline?
