If every person on earth realized how important it is to build your self-discipline everyone would be successful and no one would be homeless, overweight or a drug addict.
Without self-discipline you end up being the person you don’t want to be.
In order to get the things in life that you want you must discipline yourself to take the required actions to get the desired result you want.
Building self-discipline is forcing yourself to take an action you do not necessarily want to take but you know that if you do take that action you will benefit from it.
Self-discipline is like a muscle. The more you use it the stronger it gets, the less you use it the weaker it gets.
Building self-discipline takes daily practice, you use it or you lose it!
You are becoming comfortable with being uncomfortable. If you do not practice self-discipline consistently you going backwards and getting used to allowing things to not get done when you should be taking action.
For example. You want to lose 10 pounds in the next month.
You must discipline yourself to eat 1000 calories less every day for the next 35 days in a row and you will lose 10 pounds. If you do not discipline yourself to eat less you will not lose weight.
Taking that a step further if you want to build muscle and lose 10 pounds of fat in the next month you will need to discipline yourself to not only eat less every day but you will need to discipline yourself go to the gym and push your muscles past fatigue so that they will grow.
If you do not choose to excerise your right to take control of your mind and discipline yourself to eat less and go to the gym then you are forced to live as a person you do not want to be.
If you could wake up tomorrow morning and have your dream body how would that make you feel?
Well that’s not going to happen unless you discipline yourself to take the necessary steps to obtain that goal.
However, if you choose to excerise your birth right to take control of your mind and direct it to an end of your choice, you can start today and use the power of discipline to take the action needed to get what you want.
That goes for anything in life. If you want something you do not currently have you must use the power of self-discipline to take the steps everyday to getting what it is you want.
An added benefit of building your self-discipline is you are also building your self-confidence.
When you consistently say your going to do something and do it you are strengthening your subconscious mind and gaining self-confidence. You are literally building confidence in yourself.

Baby steps. Choose something you want that you currently do not have. Figure out the steps you need to take to get what it is you want. Then force yourself every single day to take steps towards your goal.
