Disciplining yourself can sometimes suck, but it’s necessary. It’s necessary to create habits, habits that will take you to where you want to be in life.
As Jim Rohn used to say, success comes down to “a few good disciplines practiced every day.”
If there’s one message I keep repeating over and over on this site when it comes to achieving what you want, it’s this: Take consistent action.
Taking action when you feel like it is child’s play. Anyone can do that. Taking action when it’s the last thing you want to do, however, takes discipline and a strong desire to achieve the results you’re after.
Telling your mind to be quiet as it comes up with great sounding excuses to procrastinate can be difficult but the more you can get yourself to take action anyway, the stronger your ability to follow through will become.
As you continue to follow through on the things you say you’re going to do, it’ll become a stronger habit which means it’ll become easier. Once you become the kind of person who just gets things done, with a good plan, you’ll be unstoppable.
Self-discipline… it sucks, but it’ll change your life.
