Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment – Jim Rohn
Discipline, self-control, will power, resolve are a few words that are used interchangeably and in a very casual way by people.
However, when it comes to practice, most of us DON’T find ourselves familiar with them in any way.
No doubt, that building self-discipline in life can be a tough process, however, in the end, it is always worth it based on how important a role it plays in each and every one of our lives.
Because anyone that you see as a successful person today (and maybe aspire to be like them) followed a rigorous self-discipline schedule to make it big back in the day.
But the question is how to achieve this state of mindfulness? How to cultivate self-discipline in life?
As it is one of the most important life-skills, here are 10 proven methods that will help you build a life of self-discipline.
#1. Find Motivation
How do you do that?
I will say that start by watching content around that topic and read a lot. For instance, if you love to draw then
- Watch videos around that topic
- Read a lot about the topic
- See what other people in that field are doing and have done in the past
- Watch how much better these people are and were from you
- Learn from them
- Observe their craft and see what more value you can add to it
#2. Start Small
There is no need to take a giant of a project on hand in a single go or think that you have to be at par with someone like Leonardo Da Vinci in the first go.
There is no need for that. Rather, take your time. Learn, unlearn and repeat.
The best part is you get to create a life of self-discipline along the road.
#3. Try and Get Out of Your Discomfort (Break the Comfort Zone)
This is perhaps one of the most important lessons when it comes to learning self-discipline.
At some point or the other, you will have to get out of your comfort zone. Thus, it would be best that train your mind for that well beforehand.
Learn to embrace discomfort. The sooner you do it. The better.
