Why Build Self-Discipline?

Whenever we have a goal, whether it’s losing that extra weight, building our dream business, or becoming an incredible musician, we need to put in the work. 

To do the work, we would need to overcome our impulses. Discipline is the ability to act despite the temptation not to. It's the ability to resist the feeling of slacking off. 

Discipline is one of the most important life skill to be successful, whatever success means to you.

Discipline Vs Motivation

The most important distinction between discipline and motivation is that discipline is consitent, while motivation is not. 

Discipline takes up the slack when motivation doesn’t show up. When we rely on motivation, our performance comes and goes, and we risk falling back into old habits. When we build discipline, our performance remains steady.

Why its Getting More Difficult To Build Self-Discipline?

Discipline is getting harder to cultivate, and the simple answer for why that’s the case is that life is getting easier. Easier life creates two condition which makes building discipline harder. 

  1. Temptation- We are surrounded by more and more sources of temptation and distractions that make it increasingly difficult to overcome our impulses.
  2. Lack of Resistance- An easier life also gives us less opportunity to practice discipline. Instant gratification is slowly removing opportunities for us to practice discipline. We are becoming impatient, expectant, and our attention span is reducing.

Resistance

Resistance is uncomfortable, but resistance is the catalyst for growth. It gives us a feeling of development, fulfilment, and achievement. It shows us the boundaries of our ability and allows us to surpass them. 

The psychological impact of knowing you can do something is profound, and you can only find this boundary by pushing yourself through resistance.

We have to create our own resistance in a world that's removing it.

How Do We Build Self-Discipline?

Discipline is like the gym. We need resistance to grow, and that growth will depend on the resistance we apply. We should start small, make your bed, do the laundry, tidy your room, read a page, don’t eat that chocolate bar, walk at lunch, put down your phone, go to bed earlier, wake up earlier etc. 

Any time we feel the little voice within calling us to resist an action or validate a decision not to do something, this is an opportunity to develop resilience. That is the resistance you need to grow.

Once we’re aware of it, we can notice it.

When we notice it, we can catch it.

When we catch it, we can use it as a tool for growth.

Marcus Aurelius

“At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: ‘I have to go to work—as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for—the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?”

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
