Ways to Become More Self – Disciplined

Self-discipline is a pattern of behavior where you choose to do what you know you should do, rather than what you want to do. It’s the inner power that pushes you to get out of bed to exercise rather than sleeping in. It is the assertion of willpower over more basic desires and is synonymous with self-control.

Here are few ways to help you become more self disciplined :

  • Have A Purpose – Why do you want to be self – disciplined? Let your purpose be the driving force and pull you up when you are down and out.
  • Focus On The Benefits – Keep telling yourself the benefits of self – discipline and control and your mind will help your body in achieving your goals.
  • Have A Plan – One minute in planning saves two minutes in execution. Have a plan to overcome any temptation.
  • Avoid Temptations – The best way to avoid triggers and temptation is to hide them in hard to reach places so you don’t have easy access to it.
  • Surroundings Does Matter – If you surround yourself with self – disciplined people, you will be like them sooner rather than later.
  • Get Help From Friends – Ask your friends to stop you when you are indulging in bad habits that will ruin your self – discipline.
  • Visual Reminders – Spread visual cues around your house, which keeps reminding you to maintain self – control.
  • Give Yourself A Break – Reward yourself with treats and breaks if you have management to achieve your self – discipline goals.
  • Move On – If you fail to maintain self – discipline, do not fret over it. Forgive yourself and move on with a new beginning.
  • Eat Healthy & Sleep Well – Your diet and sleeping habits on your lifestyle and habits so eat healthy, take good night sleep and live well.

This is not the first time I have blogged on the importance of discipline, and it won’t be the last. Of the over 1000 little things on my list, nothing has a higher dollar value to the market than discipline. Discipline is one of the key differentiators separating those who live successful and fulfilling lives from those who don’t.

    1. If there were no discipline, people would do whatever they wanted and make mistakes without putting the consideration of others first and foremost. It promotes good human behavior to better society and make it a more enjoyable place for everyone to live.

    1. Self-discipline is needed at all times, whether you are feeling good or bad. It’s just that when you are feeling good, positive and motivated; you don’t struggle to apply your self-discipline. It just seems to happen subconsciously. Therefore, you don’t really notice it in action. It’s only when you are on a bad day and struggling that you notice your need for self-discipline.

    Hi Garima,

    Wouldn’t you agree that if more people worked on this virtue that it would help them handle more challenging issues? Patience, frustration, working well with others, etc.

    Thank you,

    2. Mental toughness is many things and rather difficult to explain. Its qualities are sacrifice and self-denial. Also, most importantly, it is combined with a perfectly disciplined will that refuses to give in. It’s a state of mind you could call it character in action.
