disciplineIf you look at your life right now, what is the reason you are not as successful, happy and healthy as you ought to be? There might be a lot of reasons, such as working for long hours like I do in my job, not having the right mentors and people to turn to, not having the required finances among others. All in all, and above all these reasons, there is probably just one single reason, and that is lack of self-discipline. You are simply not doing what you ought to do and that is the reason things are not so well on your side.

The good news is that there are simple things you can do to instill back self discipline and be on course to success. Here are simple things you can work on.

Know your weaknesses

We are humans and we all have weaknesses. They can be weaknesses on a bad eating habit, interacting with the wrong people, being at the wrong place among others. All you need to do is to acknowledge your weaknesses whatever they might be and devise a plan to work towards making them your strengths. In many instances, people try to pretend their vulnerabilities and do not fully accept they need help.

Remove Temptations

As the famous saying goes, out of sight and out of mind, so is the case. One of the reasons you are deviating from achieving self-discipline is having too many temptations by your side. When you remove the biggest temptations from your side, you set yourself to a room of self discipline. If you want to eat healthier, throw away that junk food holding you back. If you want to improve on your productivity, turn off social media and other forms of distractions. Invite a few distractions your way and see your goals suffer.

Set clear goals and have an execution plan.

If you want to achieve self-discipline, you must have a concrete and clear vision of what you want to achieve. You must have a clear understanding of the meaning of success. If you don’t know where you are going, you are going to lose track as you wander aimlessly. Having a clear strategy means you have outlined each step you need to go through in order to reach your goals.

Build your self-discipline

We are humans and we are not born perfect. We achieve perfection with time by working on our weaknesses. Any skill that you want to master requires daily practice, sacrifice and repetition. It is just like going to the gym, where self-discipline and willpower takes a lot of work. The focus and effort required on self-discipline can be very draining. When time passes, it becomes extremely difficult to keep your will power in check. The bigger the decision or temptation, the more challenging it can be to develop self-discipline. Look at all issues that make you lose your focus and work on a way of avoiding or eliminating them in your life.
