Self-Discipline and Personal Success

According to Aristotle, the ultimate aim of human life is to be happy. The biggest thing that holds most people back from pursuing their dreams and being happy is a lack of self-discipline. If you cultivate self-discipline, set clear goals, and begin doing the things you already know you should be doing, nothing will keep you from achieving success.

Remember, success isn’t an accident—you need to have the discipline to work hard at it.

And only with self-discipline will you have the drive to persist through the hardest obstacles in your path to success.

Self-Discipline in Business

Most, if not all, of us tend to get distracted in our day-to-day lives and stray further and further from completing our most important tasks, those that will help us achieve success. However, if we learn to set clear priorities and work on the tasks that bring us the most value, as well as cultivate the discipline to complete these tasks quickly and well, we will be on the path to success.

Furthermore, these abilities will help us consolidate ourselves as leaders instead of followers, which is an invaluable trait. Leaders are truly the ones who achieve their goals.

Relying on Willpower

People with a lot of self-discipline understand that willpower is a last resort.

Willpower should never be a primary strategy for accomplishing difficult things.

Better to avoid temptations in the first place than trying to resist them.

How would I achieve my goals if I had zero willpower?

They are invented reasons we create to defend our behavior, to postpone taking action or simply as a means of neglecting responsibility.
