How to be More Disciplined
THE ART OF DISCIPLINE.
If you’re reading this article, you’re probably looking to become more disciplined in some aspect of your life.
Personally, I believe that in order to achieve true discipline, you must first start taking responsibility. Your current reality, whatever it may be, is the result of your own doing. Take a second and think about it. You are where you physically are because you put yourself there. (Unless you don’t have the physical capability)
The fact that you wake up in your bed in the morning is because you chose to physically get yourself into bed the night before. You choose to go to work, school, and wherever your daily routines take you. So let that sink in. You first CHOOSE in your mind by thinking, and then your body takes the physical action in order to execute the choice that you made in your mind. So how does that relate to taking responsibility? If you didn’t already figure it out I will spell it out for you.
You are where you are in life (health, social status, finances, location) because of the choices you have made up until the present moment that you are experiencing. If you’re unhappy with your current state, it’s time to start taking responsibility and start taking action. If you are a functional adult, you cannot blame your surroundings, your misfortunes, or your situation, because you ultimately put yourself there. CHOOSE to take responsibility for that.
As humans we are all created with FREE WILL. We all have the ability to influence our subconscious minds in order to produce the results that we want. With the free will that you have, you must CHOOSE to take action, and you must choose to take action because you have free will! It goes hand in hand. Read that a few more times until it sinks in. Once you understand this concept, you will become the master of your own destiny.
Anything is possible. It starts with your thoughts. CHOOSE to not make excuses. Every time you make an excuse, you put a limiting belief in your mind. This causes you to stray further away from your goals, which ultimately leads to failure, and you wasting your own time. We all have a limited time in this world, so in order to best utilize this, you have to take all of your excuses and throw them as far away from your mind as possible. When you start choosing not to make any more excuses, you will find yourself more disciplined.
When you alter your way of thinking, you automatically make choices to improve your mind, body, and spirit. That is the first result of your newfound discipline. Discipline is all in the mindset. You’ll find out!
