Newsletter #129 : Self Discipline : you owe it to yourself
Self-discipline is important in order to achieve our goals. When we are self-disciplined, the decisions we make are more likely to be healthy and lead to success. Self-discipline can be thought of as a currency that can be used for good or bad. It is the ability to do something that you don’t feel like doing, but know that it will improve your life in the long run.
It can be used to achieve anything, whether it is finishing a tough assignment or sticking to your diet, self-discipline can help you accomplish anything.
Self discipline doesn’t just come naturally – it must be consciously developed. It is about being willing to be uncomfortable and work hard for your life.
The more you exercise your self-discipline muscle, the stronger it will grow. It’s not an easy muscle to develop, but with time and effort you can train your brain to rely on it when needed.
It is what separates those who are successful from those who are just dreaming about it, could also be called “willpower” and it’s an important part of achieving goals.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
