There are many qualities that contribute in achievements and happiness of an individual’s life. These qualities ensure long term success in various aspects of life. One such quality is SELF DISCIPLINE. Self-discipline involves acting according to what you think instead of how you feel.
Be aware of yourself, your goals and what motivates you and pushes you to achieve success. People who have high levels of self-control tend to be a lot happier and also have more satisfaction in life. Self-discipline equips the person to deal with everyday stress and conflicts. As it gives the power to stick to your decisions and follow them through, without having to change your mind due to influences around you.
The people, who are self-disciplined, do not allow their feelings or impulses to influence their choices. In other words it can be said that they are not driven by impulses and keep a clear head and live by rules. They make rational decisions without feeling stressed.
Attitudes control our lives. People with positive attitudes are healthier, have more friends, do better in school and live longer. Want to be happy? Think good thoughts.
Self-discipline requires practice, where you train yourself to break free of bad habits and establish good ones, and improve by making changes in daily routine. Improved self-discipline makes life easier and you make healthy choices without getting emotional.
Remove temptations by keeping in mind the quote “out of sight, out of mind”. If you are trying to study or working on an assignment, turn off your cell phone or keep it away, remove things that distract you or tempt you. Ditch the bad habits of influences and set up yourself for success. Visualize the success or rewards that you will achieve once you accomplish your goals.
“By constant Self-discipline and Self-Control you can develop greatness of character”. Grenville Kleiser
