“Be a student, not a follower. Don’t just go do what someone says. Take interest in what someone says, then debate it, ponder it and consider it from all angles.”

JIM ROHN

Internalize delayed gratification

When you are not disciplined, you know only one part of the equation: immediate gratification (our desire to experience pleasure or fulfillment without delay).

But delayed gratification (resistance to the temptation of an immediate reward in preference for a later reward) is so much better in the long turn. 

Your philosophy about self-discipline

For most people, self-discipline is hard labor. It’s something to despise. But if you approach self-discipline with that attitude, it’s pretty hard to develop it.

Self-discipline is not hard at all. The lack of self-discipline is hard. 

Use your imagination

Visualize and taste the fruits of self-discipline.
What could you have achieved if you work hard every day? How well your life would have looked? Would that be enough for you to put yourself together today to achieve a better future?

Jim Rohn
“There are two types of pain you will go through in life, the pain of discipline and the pain of regret.”

Habits and self-discipline

Your self-discipline has its root in your habits. They make us who we are. And changing one’s habits is the most reliable way to change yourself and your life.

Developing self-discipline via daily habits is so natural. If you have something to do every day, excuses and procrastination won’t have much power.

Self-discipline is NOT an option

You do what you have to. If self-discipline is an option for you, it will remain an option forever. Fix your personal philosophy.

You won’t have a habit if you don’t show up every day.

Extrapolate your current situation

If you don’t know your reward yet, and you simply have no relevant experience to get to like self-discipline, leverage what you know.

For example: if you don't know what abundance means, because you have never experienced it, you probably know what financial struggles mean. Work from there.
